Hey you. Happy March! I hope you had a good weekend. I celebrated two friends' birthdays and then binge-watched House of Cards. I'm finally getting over this cold. All good things. Before I get into today's video, I have something to get off my chest:
I love this blog, my Youtube channel, and work so hard on them, without any outside help. It brings me such joy to share my beauty knowledge, my DIYs, tutorials, my makeup reviews with you, and occasionally my life with you.
But when the comments I receive are only on the life tidbits and don't mention the beauty post itself, it really frustrates me. It makes me feel like the commenter skipped to the bottom and commented on the end of the post only. I have no desire to write a personal life blog, but do enjoy marrying beauty with some of my life. I'm thankful for comments, but wanted to be honest with my frustration. Just something to consider. Thank you.
Today's video has some very personal, devastating news that I have not discussed yet on the blog. I just felt more comfortable discussing it on the video. I might share it here later; I just have so much to deal with emotionally. I appreciate your patience with me in returning comments and emails, as well as your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
I say all of this and then I offer you today's video, Coffee & Chit Chat, where I share my month in review, fave blog posts, fave beauty products, and more. I think you'll enjoy it, and yes, feel free to comment on anything:
And to end this post on a really happy note, I have TWO GIVEAWAYS for you!

UPDATE: Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers. Since I am not posting today, I encourage you to read my Guest Post over at So About What I Said. It talks about my dream for 2015 and this recent personal news. It's the most proud I've ever been of a guest post.
