5 good things that happened this week


Yes, Oprah. Thank god the week is over. Here's what I plan to do tonight: drink wine and sit on my ass watching The Real Housewives with my sister. I know you're going to let me down Bravo and show some shitty movie instead like you're Netflix and anyone cares, but a heart can dream.

Instead of focusing on the negative which is kind of my thing, I thought I'd focus on the positive and show some appreciation for good things that happened this week.

1. Birchbox sent me a Beauty Blender in my monthly box. 

I'm pretty sure I wrote another blog post where I said something to the effect of, "ugh beauty blenders so sick of hearing about them," but it was mainly because... I was really sick of hearing about them. Except now I have one and I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a total hypocrite. I think Birchbox knew I was getting ready to cancel my subscription and decided to really pull out the big guns. I can't say I notice a huge difference in application from my Sonia Kashuk sponge, but it's got a cool texture, so that's something right?

2. I tried Shocktop's pumpkin beer.

Confession: Shocktop's raspberry wheat beer is one of my top five favorite beers. Yeah you can buy it at the gas station, what's your point? So, basically what I'm saying is I was pretty excited to learn they had a pumpkin offering. Not saying it's the best pumpkin ale, but I'm all about expanding my horizons.

3. Taylor Swift came out with a new song. 

Guys, we're less than two weeks away from her new album. I'm going to piss myself with excitement.

4. Walking Dead started again.

Only the best show on television, no big deal. How glad are we that the storyline involving those people at the place (trying to be as vague as possible for slowpokes) didn't drag on forever?

5. I figured out my Halloween costume.

I'm too lazy to do the blue skin and I don't have violet hair. But, you know basically, I'm down. Truthfully, I just want to wear fake lashes and do a dramatic cat-eye.

So tell me, what good things happened to you this week?


  1. Dude. This song is AWESOME! I used to hate TS, but now I love her! The good things that happened this week are 1. I got a acne kit for free from Influenster 2. My pooping schedule got back on track and I had Burger King all by myself. No kids around to steal my fries and dump ketchup all over themselves.

    I guess you could say... it was a good day. (week, LOL)

  2. I got the beauty blender too! Haven't used it yet, though. And I'm obsessed with the new T. Swift song - I can't wait for the album!

  3. But you're still going to do the colored hair for Halloween, right? Right? Because that's the best part.

  4. It's been a pretty okay week, hasn't it?

    I'm SO excited for TSwift's new album!

  5. Hahahahah, #2 is the best. Very important. And I was definitely not feeling Taylor Swift when she first started getting popular but after Speak Now and Red, I was totally on board.

  6. I know--I'm so excited! I need more catchy pop to listen to during my daily commute. I'm liking the beauty blender, but I'm still kind of giving the side-eye to everyone who acts like no other make-up sponge can do what it does.

  7. I wish I was doing the hair! It's so pretty! But no, I'm going to be boring. I looked up a fake blood recipe though so hopefully it turns out kind of okay.
