I confess...


...I started listening to Christmas music on Tuesday. Usually I wait until after Halloween, but I was having a very blah day...

...I cut my own hair a couple of weeks ago-- I'm talking like 6 inches off the ends... more on that later though.

...I really want to do NANOWRIMO, but I know I don't have time even though I've been feeling inspired lately. One day left to decide!

...I was really excited to finally try out the Sephora Color IQ and it was a huge letdown because it definitely did not work (or the girl did it wrong?) The number matches me to Tarte's light sand and when I use that it seriously looks like I'm dressing up as a mime because it is so insanely light against my complexion. I even tried light-medium sand and even that was waaaay too light-- so I don't get it?

...I really wanted to linkup with Alyssa and Tracy this week but I made zero progress sooo there wasn't much to update about-- but reading everyone's posts really did motivate me and I'm hoping I'll be ready with a post for next month!

...I watched all of season one of Parenthood in a single weekend, but I haven't been able to get through a single episode of season two. Sarah (Lauren Graham's character) annoys me on every level, and there are so many things I'd rather do with my time than watch a show with someone so obnoxious.

So there's that for a random Friday post. I'm working on a favorites post to linkup with Mia & Kelli next week, and a few other things as well-- trying to get back into a blogging routine or schedule at least. Just like that October is over... two months left of 2014, where does time go?

Wishing you all a very happy Friday and joyous weekend!

  1. Um don't worry, I totally was listening to Christmas music a few weeks ago so you aren't alone! And I can't believe you cut 6 inches off your own hair! If I did that it'd look horrible! Happy Halloween!

  2. I love these posts - we all need to vent sometimes, and who better to vent to than your blogger friends?! We all understand. I've been able to contain my myself from listening to Christmas music, but now that I know others are doing it, I'll be diving in head first pretty quick. The Sephora color matching thing sounds like a gimmick! I can't wait to see your hair - you're so brave! Happy Weekend!

  3. I am definitely that person who listens to Christmas music months before Christmas, I'm glad I'm not the only one! Happy Halloween!

  4. You're doing nanowrimo. Curtail it to something that works for you (that's how I wrote my first novel--I used the inspiration of nanowrimo and made out a schedule. I knew I couldn't commit to writing an entire novel in a month, but I committed to WRITING). Try committing 30 minutes a day. That's nothing. It's one show. It's a few blogs or a pinterest session. DO IT! I'll be doing it too!

  6. Oh gosh, I love Christmas music so much. I can't wait til it starts playing on the radio!! I think I'm going to upload some to my ipod... :) Happy Spooooky Halloween! lol

  7. Oh no, I love Parenthood, haha! I can see why Sarah would annoy you, though. She's only recently started getting on my better side (like as of seasons 5/6). That's such a let down about the Sephora Color IQ thing! Did you hear/see how they're doing some other new technology thing with fragrance? I think I got an email about it recently- sounds interesting.

    Hope you have a great weekend/Halloween!

  8. I cut my own hair about a year ago, but nothing near 6 inches! I can't wait to hear more about it.

    I think I'm about to break out the Christmas music in my office. I need some cheer.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Ah! Christmas music!! I can't wait to start listening to it!
    You cut 6 inches by yourself?! Dang girl! How did it turn out??
    I've been wondering if we should start watching Parenthood on Netflix. Guess we will find out if she annoys us as well, ha!

  10. I LOVE Parenthood and I will say that Sarah does get better, in my opinion! So sad it's the final season this year. And yes, we need a pic of your hair! Can't believe you cut it yourself!!! Happy weekend!

  13. I haven't resorted to Christmas music yet, but Elf was on VH1 last night and I totally watched it! Happy Halloween!

  14. The Sephora color IQ did not work at all for me either! Such a letdown. I'm ready for Christmas early this year too! Have a great weekend girl!

  15. Time is totally flying - and I love that you busted out Christmas music hah. I "treated" myself to some last week when baking and nothing like a little Mariah and "All I Want for Christmas" to bump up the energy level ;) Happy Halloween!

  16. I listen to Christmas music all year round, no shame. I have never seen parenthood but it makes me sad that Lauren Graham's character sucks, I love her! and show us your hair. so happy to hear that the training for tuesday posts helped motivate you, winter sucks for motivation so i really hope you link up next month!! i am going to try really really hard, winter kills me normally. also, you should do NANOWRIMO - why not?!

  17. i want to do nanowrimo as well but i have ZERO time and im really sad about that :(

  18. I want to see your hair!!! Sometimes I will be so frustrated with my hair that I need a trim and I need it right in that moment, so I do it myself, ha!

  19. K so many things. One, YES Christmas music. I played a song or two already, but come Monday, all the music will be holiday/winter music :)
    Every year I debate myself on NaNoWriMo. I know I'm not ready this year at all, and I cannot commit to the time it will take, but part of me still wants to go crazy and jump in. Next year...
    You're going to have an amazing month working toward your training goals and I so can't wait to read about them!! :)
    I LOVE PARENTHOOD. I actually still have to catch up on last season though haha and I cut cable so I can't watch this season until it's over. BUT... Lauren Graham is one of my favorites on that show! I've heard a lot of people say they don't like her character though. Did you watch Gilmore Girls?

  20. I don't believe the Sephora Color IQ thing either. I got matched and when I checked the list, the color it matched me to, in the foundation I actually had in the correct color, was way off. I think something is up with the lighting in there, for real. I always get matched way darker than I need, though, so maybe I need to come to your store, haha!
    Hope you have a great weekend too!
    I hope you do link up next month! Not every month will be an earth-shattering month, we get that. In fact, I have a good feeling mine won't be next month ;)

  21. Oh my goodness I couldn't imagine cutting my own hair! Looking forward to hearing more on that! Love that you are already listening to Christmas music! I love Christmas music :) I usually try to wait until November to bust it out :)

  22. I just bought some Christmas cards, I'm really excited for the holidays this year! I'm excited to see how your haircut turned out! I wish I could cut my own hair, but I would never trust myself. Speaking of which, I definitely need a haircut! I also feel iffy about that Sephora colour IQ thing because the sample that it picked out for me was way too dark for my skin.

  23. I watched all of Parenthood through season 4 last spring. I like it, but I totally agree Sarah is so annoying. When she and her daughter get together and start yapping in that way that they do, it drives me crazy. Have you noticed how everyone calls their kids "bud" at some point? Fun list!

    (Found you through the linkup!)

  24. Can't wait to hear more about your DIY hair cut, ha! I would be terrified to do that!
    I haven't ever watched Parenthood, but not sure I want to know. I love Lauren Graham but if her character is annoying......
    Totally got my first red cup today (Starbucks) and forgot my Christmas CD at home, but it will be blasting later tonight. Let the holidays begin!!

  25. Ooh I can't wait to hear more about your haircut - I'm super ungraceful with scissors so I am def. not brave enough to do that. Any tips would be helpful!

  26. I am all about the Christmas movies now. Totally need to see a picture of the new hair!

  27. Christmas music can definitely turn a blah day up a notch. I blast Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas whenever I'm feeling that way.
