Goodbye Apartment 5

Hello Everyone,
I apologize for not posting yesterday I’ve had a very busy few days.
Today I graduated from college. It feels good to have accomplished so much but like closing any chapter there is a sense of sadness that comes along with it all.
To me the hardest part was moving out of our home. Apartment five has been me and Tyler’s home and even though we have been living in other places, this was the first place that was just ours.
We got engaged in that apartment, it is were we found Tonks, it was our first home as husband and wife, this one apartment is filled with so many memories it is hard to say good bye.
So heres to you apartment 5, you will always have a very special place in my heart.
Love you all,
Michelle

Hello Everyone,

Happy Tuesday!

It’s true that I am a girls girl and I love makeup and clothes and pretty shoes! But at the same time I am comfortable enough with myself that I can feel just as beautiful in sweat pants a bun and no makeup!

To me natural beauty is even more beautiful then a smokey eye. So next time your running late don’t panic, just rock your natural beauty!

The Teabook

 

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your Monday! As many of you know from past posts or my Instagram, I love tea. In fact, I rely on tea. Every morning I get up to make myself a nice warm cup and start preparing for my day.

Since I start my day with a cup of tea every single day sometimes it can get a little repetitive, so I always look for fun new teas to help keep things fresh.

I wanted to share with you one of the coolest teas I have come across! It’s by a company called The TeaBook. The TeaBook makes special teas based on authors, books, politicians, philosophers, really anything or anyone! They call them Collect Teables because they will for a limited run making them collectable!

This morning I woke up to a warm cup of Agatha ChrisTea. It is an Earl Grey that was absolutely delicious. I enjoyed every sip! I am looking forward to waking up tomorrow to a cup of Shakespearmint Tea. How adorable are these names!

You can subscribe to The TeaBook and receive new flavors of tea each month! I am so very excited to see what next month will bring. They have adorable artwork done by different artists. The teas are organic and kosher certified.

If you love tea as much as I do or know someone who does you should check out #CollectTeables! The Link to their website is below! The company is a Kickstarter so I will also link that below as well To you can purchase the TeaBook through the kickstarter page!

Ponilox

Hi Everyone,

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

 

Today I want to talk about one of the best products I have just recently tried. It is called ponilox. And it may just be the best hair product on the market.

 

I love it because it is easy to use, very quick if you are in a rush, and it looks great. Its perfect for travel, work or leisure! It really is ideal for any occasion.

 

All you have to do is twist your hair, insert the comb and secure the latch of the ponilox! Just like that you have a great look without the stress.

 

The key to why this product works is really in the design of it! It has the first and only patented French comb that curves perfectly with your head. The ponilox also has a barrette made with an elastic that secures your hair, so the style stays perfect all day.

 

The ponilox comes in many different colors so you can have one perfect for all occasions. Check out the link below to get your own ponilox!

SELF LOVE

Hello Everyone!
I hope you enjoyed your weekend!
Today I want to talk to you all about self love! I’m sure you have all heard you must truly love yourself before you can love someone else. Trust me, that is 100% true.
Everyone sees flaws within themselves but we love others with their flaws so why not love ourselves as well!
I hope you all learn to accept everything about yourself, learn to love it, and learn to love you!
Love you all,
Michelle

Don’t Be A Catfish

Hello Everyone,

I hope your Wednesday has been going great!

Today I decided to binge watch Cat Fish with my free day. I have to say I am an addict when it comes to this show and although many times the show follows a very similar process and outcome I still enjoy all the episodes I watch.

The show has made me realize how hard it is for people who can’t accept who they are. People go to extraordinary lengths when they feel uncomfortable with themselves. This show is filled with people who pretend to be someone else to start a relationship online.

The truly sad part of this show is the fact that most of these people are wonderful people who would make great girlfriends or boyfriends but they have so little self esteem they pretend to be someone they are not.

Some of these people are overweight, some have been bullied in the past, and others are too shy to communicate as themselves. Sure some people do this for devious reasons but many people just need more confidence and to find love for themselves.

Even though many people do not wish to hurt anyone most of the time things have gone too far and people are being hurt.

I hope that if any of you struggle so badly with self esteem you seek help and acceptance. Everyone deserves to be loved for who they are,  you shouldn’t have to pretend to be someone else to feel loved.

I hope you all no you you are worth loving. Check out tonight’s Catfish special on MTV tonight.

Love you all,
Michelle

Happy Birthday Mr. SHAKESPEARE

Hello Everyone,
I hope you didn’t let those Monday Blues get to you today! Tyler and I had a great day together celebrating our three years together! It’s insane to believe that we just started dating three years ago and now we are married with a cat lol!!!!

Well today I want to wish a very influential man a Happy Birthday! Today is William Shakespeare’s Birthday. He gave the world so many beautiful plays and stories.

As a lover of writing, I have always loved reading his works.  His words are timeless and beautiful.  His stories are gripping and mesmerizing. He was a true genius!

He change the course of literature through his masterpieces.   I believe the literature we read today would be so different if we had not known his genius! He paved the way for so many other stories.

Even 400 years since we lost him, his stories still inspire people to write. Mr. Shakespeare is much more then an author; he is an author, a poet, a hero, a legend, and an inspiration!

So cheers to you Mr. Shakespeare…  The Bard of Avon… Happy Birthday… and Thank you!!!

Love you all,
Michelle

A Night In With Audrey Hepburn

Hello Everyone,
Hope you haven’t let the Monday blues get you down!

Today I wanted to do a quick book review! As many of you know I have been reading “A Night In With Audrey Hepburn” by Lucy Holliday!

I have to admit that my love for Audrey Hepburn was what first caught my attention. But when I started to read it there is so much I love about this book!

I brought it on my trip to Disney and started reading it on the plane.  It was amazing how quickly the time goes when you are invested in the book you are reading!!

The story follows an actress, Libbey Lomax. After a bad day she goes home to watch a classic movie, Breakfast At Tiffany’s. But to her surprise the beautiful, sophisticated, and glamorous Audrey Hepburn pops out of the TV to help Libbey!

What girl wouldn’t want to get advice from the most iconic and glamorous woman the world has ever known?

This book is hilarious and charming! A book every woman should pick up. It’s light hearted and great for a chuckle! I don’t want to give too much away but this was definitely one of my favorite books I’ve read this year!

I hope you all pick it up, but trust me you’ll have a hard time putting it back down!

Love you all,
Michelle

Mindfulness

Hello Everyone!

Happy Saturday!

Today I want to talk to everyone about mindfulness! This is a post that my mother-in-law suggested but I didn’t know much about! After looking into mindfulness I realize it is the perfect topic for today!

So what is mindfulness? It is basically being aware of what’s happening the external and internal factors of life! It’s becoming aware of our thoughts feelings and experiences!

How can you practice mindfulness? Just make an effort of being present and aware. Some people choose to do this through meditation. Some people choose to do this through photography or Journaling; while others just set aside some time to absorb, realize and be mindful!

I hope you all take some time to be mindful and recognize these things that we so often over look in life!

Love you all,
Michelle
