Confessions // Glossy Blonde

1. If I don’t have anything planned for a particular evening, I will wash my face and change into sweats the second I get home from work. I like being comfy!

2. I like animals more than I like people. True story.

3. Except for my family – I love my family the same amount as I love animals.

4. I hate washing my hair. I live for dry shampoo. [Read more...]

Fall Beauty Wishlist + Tuesday Pretties Linkup

As I look at my (never ending) beauty product wishlist, I’m getting the urge to do more shopping. I know, I know, I just recently hauled a bunch of new makeup, but with the transition to fall I feel like I need more.

Don’t I always feel like I need more, though?

I owe my love of all things beauty to my grandmother. One of my earliest memories is sitting at her vanity in front of her slew of high-end makeup products while she taught me the basics. Or whatever the basics would be for a 3-year-old. Ha. I wasn’t allowed to actually wear makeup out in public until my teenage years, but I got a very early start in learning all about it! I loved going to visit Nana and that vanity was the first place I would head every time throughout my childhood and teen years, and let’s be honest, even my adult years.

So anyway, that’s where my obsession love of all things beauty began. :)

And today I’m sharing some of the beauty products I’ve been coveting for fall!

Link Love: 09.26.14

Happy Friday!

I’m taking my 3-hour blood glucose test today, wish me luck! I’m SO nervous, I really would rather not have gestational diabetes. Either way, though, I’m seriously cutting down on the sweets. I don’t feel like I’ve been eating too badly, but this was enough of a wake up call to really ensure that I eat as healthy as possible for my third trimester!

What are your plans for the weekend? I’m getting my maternity photos taken and I’m so excited! I went through a flurry of outfits last weekend and finally settled on one that I love. It’s simple and I think it’ll be just perfect for this shoot. I can’t wait to share some of the photos with you eventually!

Link Love time!

Nailed It: OPI Coca-Cola Red + Tuesday Pretties Linkup

The only red nail polish I’ve worn in like, forever, has been (my favorite) Zoya America, so I thought it might be time to change things up and try out something new!

OPI Coca-Cola Red Nail Polish Review // Glossy Blonde

When I saw OPI’s new Coca-Cola Collection, I fell in love with the red shade, aptly named Coca-Cola Red. And because I’m me, I had to hold my nails up to a Coca-Cola can once polished, and the color is, in fact, Coca-Cola Red! [Read more...]

{Bumpdate} 28 Weeks

I am currently 28 weeks pregnant – third trimester, woot!

Bumpdate: 28 week pregnancy update // Glossy Blonde

Soooo… it may be time to give up the sweets. I failed my 1-hour glucose tolerance test and I’m scheduled to take the 3-hour test on Friday. I’ve heard that people can fail the 1-hour test though, and pass the 3-hour, so I’m hoping that’s the case for me!

Read on for the rest of my 28 week pregnancy update! [Read more...]
