Lately/ Life happenings + Confessions

Hello long lost blogging world. I can't believe it has been 18 days since my last post... not good on my part. Life has been so busy lately that I can't believe it is about to be April, summer will be here before we know it. In an attempt to get caught up, I am sharing a bit of what I have been up to as of lately + a few confessions....

Named as one of the best bars of the South, I treated T to a few drinks at The Crunkleton as part of his Valentines gift. He was able to try a few different bourbons he hadn't had before while I sipped on a yummy martini. While it's not an every weekend spot, it was definitely a fun experience and something we will do again. 

A shamless fitting room selfie. A few weeks ago I wondered into Forever 21 after seeing a few things on their website I loved. While I am still kicking myself for not getting these fun fringe heels, I did come home with the black shift dress. One can never have too many black dresses, at least in my book. 

While I was at the mall I also came home with a few new goodies from Sephora. It has been a long time since I tried any new beauty products so I was eager to try out these fun masks. So far I have loved both and will continue to buy the individual pod sizes. Tip- these pods have more then enough for one application. I have saved mine in zip block bags and have been able to get at least 5 uses out of each. 

As part of my point rewards, I also was able to pick up this Bobbi Brown face moisturizer. I have never used a Bobbi Brown product but knew I would love it. So far it has made both a great moisturizer and primer.

I also picked up a new beauty blender that I have been using for my under eye concealer as well as my foundation. It has been an absolute game changer in my makeup routine and I love the way it blends everything in and makes it look much more natural. 

Another mirror selfie of a sweater/scarf/necklace combo that has been on repeat lately. 

Now for some confessions...

+ I have totally fallen off the work out wagon. I mean y'all I woke up at 5:30 this morning and literally played on my phone looking at instagram until I got out of bed at 6am. Emily a few week ago would have been up and out the door to the gym by 6 and home around 7:15 to get ready for work. 

+ My Starbucks addiction is real and also a huge problem. I've received a few gift cards lately and so far this week have already had Starbucks 3 times... this needs to stop.

+ I am going home this weekend for Easter and can't wait to be back in Annapolis. If the weather is good, I am hoping for a walk/run around the water and then am hoping mom will treat me to a little shopping. 

+ I got a pedicure the other day for the first time in way too long. My feet were literally embarrassing and I am so happy with the way they look now. Definitely something that needs to be in my monthly rotation. 

Hope everyone has a great Thursday! 

Yours truly, 
Emily Ann

I haven't treated myself to a pedicure since we went on our honeymoon in December....I am kind of embarrassed hahaI try to keep my sbux treats in line with just 1-2 a month, but if I get a gift card, I don't feel bad about going all the time :)

I'm with ya on the workout issues! I haven't worked out in over 3 weeks! I took a week off, of course, when I had the flu, but now it's been 2 more weeks. I just haven't felt motivated. I think I am going to try and force myself to get a run in tomorrow morning!
