H54F with a tattooed teacher in texas


the sister weekend was a success!  we had so much fun smashed into four days.  i was exhausted by the time i got home, but that’s how i know i put everything into it.  i needed that break.  and i’m glad i got to spend it with my baby sister.  click HERE for more pics!


my november birchbox was fantastic.  and that’s because i knew what was coming.  i was one of the lucky ones to be able to choose an early, special box.  i chose the glamlifeguru box, which was designed by one of my favorite youtubers, tati.



i feel a second (or third or millionth) wind coming.  i want to be healthy.  there are so many temptations everywhere, and the next few weeks will be difficult.  but i feel good.  i feel motivated.  i feel like i have the right mindset again.

school (all three days of it) were a challenge this week.  i had a hard time keeping a positive attitude with all the busyness going on all the time.  but that’s how it goes with the holidays coming up.  the kids…and the adults, come to think of it…get antsy.  i like to think of the holidays as a reward for getting through the semester.  just a few more weeks!


oh, alanis.  how i love you.  you wrote the soundtrack to middle school for me.  and now you’re rewriting it.

  1. I’m glad you had a great time with your sister! Have you ever tried Ipsy instead of Birchbox? I did Birchbox for several years before switching over but I find Ipsy to be fun. I just miss the points you accumulate with Birchbox. And I heard the remake of Ironic earlier this week. . . it’s hilarious! Thanks for linking up for H54F!


  2. I’ve recently started following on YouTube. I like he style. I agree, this week was a rough one for me at school too. No matter how hard I try, sometimes its just hard to stay positive one second longer.
