Life Lately: Guess Who's Back?

Hello? Is this thing on? Remember me? 

So I took a very unexpected week away from blogging. 
And now I'm back! 
It's time to get you caught up.

A post shared by Beauty Expert • Elle Sees (@ellesees) on


I found out I have walking pneumonia, and it has left me exhausted. Who knew coughing could wear you out? Today is the first time in a week I've cracked open the computer!! I am feeling much better than a week ago. I feel a little overwhelmed with all of the deadlines and things I'm behind on. I never realized how much time blogging took up, y'all! Proof I'm feeling better is above--I actually wore makeup. I swear it worked wonders.


You might have heard about this on the news, but a portion of Interstate 85 caught on fire and collapsed. This is near where I live, so commuting to work has been, shall we say, an adventure. Since the area is currently shut down, it's like a ghost town--it's so eerie to not hear traffic! I miss my city sounds.

So that's a short and sweet recap of everything going on with me lately!
How about you?


  1. So glad to hear you are feeling a bit better - walking pneumonia is no joke girl!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. So sorry that you got sick but glad you are better. That bridge thing was crazy! I hope they figure it out soon for everyone. Have a great week Elle!


  3. Waling pneumonia is serious stuff. So glad you are feeling better!

  4. Welcome back Elle! I'm glad you're feeling better! I heard about the bridge incident on the news. I hope they can fix everything soon. Have a great week!

  5. Oh man! Pneumonia! So good to hear you're feeling better, Elle! Just take it easy and try to get as much rest as you can. XOXO

  6. Ugh, I'm sorry you got so sick - that sounds really awful. And I can't believe that freeway incident happened so close to you - glad you're okay.

  7. Hey Elle!

    Aww I'm sorry to hear you've been sick. I also had pneumonia this week...it was NOT fun. I missed the entire work week, so that sucks. My coworkers were so sweet though, they came in on their off days to work my shifts and brought my check to me personally with a get well soon card. So sweet. :) Anyway I hope you're feeling much better because I know it can REALLY drain you.

    Yikes the interstate catching on fire is scary. How did that happen?! Glad you're ok and weren't on it at the time!

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.

  8. Oh blergh - hope you're feeling better

  9. Oh no how horrible! It's not nice to be so sick! I'm glad you're feeling better, but try not to overdo it. Rest as much as you can :)

    An extra long time to get anywhere is not what you need when you're unwell, hope that it's not a major collapse and it doesn't take them long to reopen the road. We still have so many roads closed here after Cyclone Debbie, it makes getting anywhere hard. Took my sister over an hour to reach my house today, more than double what it would usually take.
