LOVE: Our First Year of Adventures

Today is Mike and I’s one year anniversary so I thought it would be appropriate to take this time to reflect on our adventure and story so far.

Background:  Mike and I met a little over a year ago while working together and during a massive transitional period in my life.  I had just ended a nearly four year relationship and was about to go into my senior year of college.  I really wasn’t looking to date anyone, but when it’s the one you just can’t say no.  So long story short, we started dating and both just knew and so 29 days later, he proposed and I said yes.

CURRENT FAVES: Makeup, Skincare, & Haircare 5.3.2016

I didn’t want to name it “April Favorites” or “Spring Favorites” because I’m not sure how often these posts will pop up.  Sometimes I like the same products for months and months and other times I find new ones after a few weeks so I thought current faves would be more appropriate.
