Life Lately

18 Apr

Baubles to Bubbles Instagram

I really fell behind on posting this week. I’m mad at myself because it was such a nice week (other than the random snow on Tuesday), and I didn’t get to take advantage of it because I was so busy at work. In real estate, busy season starts around April and doesn’t slow down until fall. Translation: I’m not going to have much of a life for awhile. I don’t know why, but I’m so hard on myself when I don’t get to post as much as I’d like to. Maintaining a blog the past year and a half has become really important to me, so when I go through times where I can’t devote a lot of time to it, I feel like I’m letting myself down.

Today’s post is pretty much just a recap via my Instagram of random things in my life lately. I’m obsessed with glitter, but recently discovered my obsession for covering my champagne bottles in glitter. I don’t need to harp on my love for champagne, but adding pink and gold glitter to the equation ups the ante! It’s actually super easy, so I might do a DIY post on it sometime. After admiring my glittery work, I decided I had to have a mimosa, so I’d say that was a productive Saturday. Another moment I had to capture on Instagram was getting to wear my metallic oxfords for the first time this year! If loving a pair of shoes is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. I got these last year, and feel like I’m walking on clouds when I wear them because they’re so comfortable. Plus, I’ve gotten compliments from men and women alike, which is a success since men really don’t “get” our fashion choices. PS- they’re on major sale now!

If anyone suffers from sleep issues like I do, then this Clinique product is a miracle. Only recently did I notice I was starting to look extremely tired. It was actually when I was looking at my blog pictures that I realized I looked pretty rough around the eye area. I freaked out and started researching this new beauty issue (add it to the list), and how to solve it. I grew up using Clinique products, so when this little eye roller met my bags it was a match made in heaven. Seriously, this is like an eye massage! Lastly, I’m still a little giddy about finding this Kensie dress stuffed in the back of my closet. I got it years ago, and plan on wearing it to work way too often this spring! Shopping in your closet is the best.

    Definitely do a DIY post on it – they looks so cool! Also, since you’re the expert on mimosas, what do you think of a beer mimosa? I saw one at our favorite Belgian Cafe the other day and I was half tempted to try it. But I wasn’t sure how it would taste. Have you ever had one?

    Busy bee! I know where you’re coming from, babe. Life is really busy for me right now, too!

    I am absolutely in LOVE with those silver brogues. So damn cool.

    Have a great weekend!

    Cute dress! I haven’t posted in a while either… my plate is just overflowing! I’ve always told myself that I would never let myself get stressed out or worried about blogging… it’s supposed to be fun, right?!? 🙂 I enjoyed seeing your Instagram pics as I am one of the few people on the planet who does not use it. 😛 Have a great weekend!
