Rants+ Raves


  • I didn't pay my car tag on time. I thought I had the whole month, so late fees it is. Lesson permanently learned.
  • I apparently had a virus on my blog for a few weeks. Thanks to everyone who emailed and contacted me to let me know! So frustrating, but completely remedied.

  • IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY FRIDAY!! Usually everyone forgets my birthday, but luckily I have Instagram to remind everyone! Haha. I am still feeling all the love from everyone. Thank you so much! You know how to make an old girl feel special.
  • It was Charlie's 3rd anniversary of being rescued! I'll be sharing the full story later this week. Love that little guy.
  • I have lived in Atlanta for a few years, but there are so many tourist places I've never visited. I decided I would do that for my birthday weekend. Did you see my Instagram pics of Atlanta?
  • A few times a year, I have this blogging crisis, where I think everyone hates the blog and that I should just throw in the towel. Am I really helping anyone? How do I prove that I'm truly knowledgeable about all things beauty and that can help if just given the chance? But the next morning, I had random emails from strangers saying this or that post helped them and that my blog is helpful. It was serendipitous. And all the confirmation I needed.
How was your weekend?? 
Share you rants and raves in the comments, if you'd like!

PS: Two awesome giveaways I'm hosting:


  1. How did you figure there was a virus on your blog? I feel like I've been having issues with my blog and keep thinking it's a virus, but I have no idea how to tell!

  2. Don't throw in the towel... I LOVE reading your blog! You feature things that EVERYONE can afford. There are so many blogs where every single product is fancy and I just don't have the money for that. Also, you keep it real which I love.

  3. i hope you had a great birthday!! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. So glad you had a nice birthday and got to do some adventuring! Your pictures of the city are beautiful as are your pictures of Charlie. Such a handsome guy.

  5. Happy bday again, Elle:) And I love your last rave:)

  6. Visiting the tourist places in your hometown sounds like so much fun! And Charlie is so adorable. Glad you had a happy birthday weekend :)

  7. uuuu happy birthday !!
    rave: it was weekend. nothing more needs to be said
    rant: it's over



  8. I loved seeing your pictures of Atlanta! Hope you had a great birthday. And please don't ever stop blogging! As I'm hopelessly clueless when it comes to beauty products, I really look forward to your posts. You always know what's new and trendy, but you offer easy tips for girls like me who can barely put on mascara. :)

  9. Hope you had a wonderful birthday! Loved seeing all of your photos. And I didn't even know blogs could get viruses.


  10. Happy belated birthday - and I'm glad you don't give up on the blog...because it's awesome!

  15. Don't quit! I love reading your blog and your comments to me always brighten my day a little more. I'm so glad you had a great birthday - I loved seeing your photos and it made me want to travel to Atlanta!
