September My Glam/Ipsy Bag

Hello there!

I thought I would do todays post on my My Glam/Ipsy bag that I received in the mail the other day.  I have really been loving this bag and I am sure I say that every time.  They have been putting in such great products and I get so excited every month to see what I am going to get. 

Without further adieu...

My recent hiatus...

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to write a quick post to say sorry for the lack of posts these last couple weeks.  It has been really hectic around here.

My cat had to go in for emergency surgery because he had kidney stones and that was a real trip.  He is on 4 medications that are oh so fun to try to give him and I have to have a constant eye on him.  He is doing much better, but it is like having a child (I do not have any children, yet) and it has been a very emotional and stressful time for me and my husband.

I have also been trying to get ready for my backpacking trip that I leave for tomorrow, so there won't be any new posts next week either.  I will be on Isle Royal for 5 days with my dad with no cell reception, away from the world, getting in tune with nature.  I have never gone backpacking, so it will definitely be a new adventure with me, but I wanted to go with my dad because he has already gone with all three (yes three) of my brothers and I wanted to do this for him before he is not able to go any more since he is going to be 64 this year.  

Thirdly, my parents are moving out of my childhood home (the one and only), so I have been helping them clean it out (taking a bunch of my childhood stuff home).  They also decided to have a garage this past weekend.  I have been wanting to have one myself, but never found the time, and I just didn't have enough stuff lying around.  So I packed up and priced all of my stuff and hauled it to their house and took part in their sale.  

And last but most certainly not least, my husband and I had our 2 year wedding anniversary this week and we tried to celebrate as well as we could with this trip coming up and a sick and needy cat.  Jimmy, my husband, also left yesterday to go out of town for work so it has been extra stressful yesterday and today with work, the cat, the trip and trying to clean the house for our friend who will be watching the house and the animals (we also have a dog).  

So, there is my little rant/explanation as to where I have been these last couple weeks.

I sincerely apologize and as soon as I get back from Isle Royal, I will really try to be on top of getting posts up at least once a week. I really love this blog and it is a way for me to express my love of the beauty world in a way I can't to anyone else.
