Chai & Chit Chat Vlog Plus Rants and Raves (Video)

Hey you! I'm doing things a bit differently today, and sharing my weekly plus monthly updates together! I'm pretty delirious as I type this. First, I finally got my taxes done! It takes twice as long since I have all the blog paperwork. Taxes should be a "rant" but since they're done, I'm adding them to the "rave" pile!

One of my dear friends flew in for the weekend to celebrate her birthday, so we were all out pretty late, and then I got up early and drove 5 hours to my hometown to celebrate my Grandmother's 75th birthday (click to see my Instagram). I got to see my adorable niece and one of my handsome nephews. And then I drove right back the next day. So a whirlwind weekend for me! I'm exhausted.

Google+! I've been driving myself crazy for a couple of months wondering why certain pictures of mine would come out really dark once I uploaded them. I tried everything. I finally figured out it was Google+. Apparently Google+ automatically "fixes" your photos and this was turning them dark. Boo. But at least now all is well. :)

Chai & Chit Chat:
I cannot believe March is ovah! Every month I make a video just for YOU sharing the highs and lows of the month. Yes! I have a Youtube channel (subscribe if you'd like) It gives you a chance to get to know me better, see my personality in action, hear my Southern accent (okay, not a highlight but still!), and most importantly, to see the World's Cutest Dog:

I mean, would you look at that cutie?? Find out what happened in March, my Drink of the Month, Blog News, Post of the Month, my favorite and not-so-favorite beauty products, and more--in fewer than 5 minutes. So without further ado, here's March in review (rhyme!):

    I had no idea about that with Google +. Thank you for the tips! Your puppy is too sweet :)

  5. I don't have a Youtube but I gladly follow you here. You look adorable in your video and your puppy is so cute. Let's talk about how beautiful your hair is, too. Happy Belated Birthday to your Lovely Grandma too. Unfortunately all mine are deceased. =(

    Happy Monday, Ada. =)

  9. Your pup is seriously so adorable it's ridiculous!! Google+ drives me nuts sometimes, I swear there are so many bugs! I can't believe March is over either... where does the time go?!? Sounds like you had a great (but busy) weekend!!

  10. Congrats again on become neutrogena ambassador. So glad to here Charlie is doing better. I no long have a k-cup machine. I sold mine since it wouldn't work here in Germany. I now have a sesno.

  11. I don't think I would have guessed you would have a southern accent!! Congrats on being the blog brand ambassador for Neutragena - so cool! I can't believe March is over either - but ready for warmer weather!!

  12. OMG that Google+/Google photo feature is super annoying. I know so many bloggers (and coders) that were going crazy wondering why all their silloed (cut out images) had a gray background. I tried everything to get rid of it. Turns out it was the "auto enhance" feature which they turned on w/o notice by default. Really dumb move by them to launch this feature, did they not notice this? If you turn off auto enhance then the background will be white like it should be.

  13. this was a fun way to do this, very cute pup!!

  14. I love my Keurig. My favorites are Dunkin Donuts, Snapple and Cinnabon KCups. I just did my blog taxes. Oh what fun! LOL She did a great job with your blog layout. Charlie is just too cute. Congrats on your ambassadorship with Neutrogena.

  15. Now I want some chai! Lovely round up post. I can't believe Google+ automatically "fixes" your images. How did you straighten out the problem?

    And yes, your dog is super cute.

  16. Your dog is the cutest! :)


  17. i craved chai at the tail end of my pregnancy and now not so much but it is still a delicious drink and i love your dog such a cutie!

  18. Your coffee cup is so cute and Charlie looks adorable. I have to admit that I don't really understand Google+. I have been debating on whether I need to set up an account (I probably do but I really don't want to). I can barely find the time to manage the social media I have now.

  19. Congrats on being the Neutrogena blog ambassador! I'd love to learn more about their products. I'm glad Charlie is doing better, too! Poor little guy!

  20. I'm still figuring out Google +.

    Cute doggy!

  21. Well that's a bummer about Google+...but good to know in case I run into the same issue!

  22. Amen to taxes being over. Such a pain!

  23. Love seeing Charlie! Such a cutie.

  24. yesss we did our taxes last week!

  34. Wow driving 5 hours there and back in 24 hours! I'd be wiped out for a week. (I love your southern accent btw!)

  35. Aw glad Charlie is ok :) Dogs are family members in our household so I definitely understand.

    Congrats on being the Neutrogena ambassador! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on some of their products. I haven't used much of their products. I don't like their grapefruit scent though so if you have any recs :)
