I went to the gym almost every day in the months before I turned 30, partly because I have been on a mission to get fit and slightly because I enjoyed bitterly typing in the numbers 2-9 when the elliptical would ask my age. I made a big deal of 30, unfortunately, the majority of my friends said “hello” & “goodbye” to 30 many….many years ago. 😉 So, while they were excited to celebrate me, the sympathy was in short… Read more »

Andrew and I had a terrific weekend.  We spent most of it prepping for our Halloween party on Saturday and the remainder of it recovering from said Halloween party. I love planning things…I really do. All week long I felt like I was on this little adventure! Of course, it helps that I have a wonderful husband who enjoys planning right along with me…and somehow manages not to get exasperated with all of my (sometimes crazy) ideas! I wanted to… Read more »

I don’t understand pumpkins. How does something that unappealing (those innards are seriously gross people) contribute to the wonder that is pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin pudding, pumpkin beer… Seriously, pumpkin never fails.  Usually, by this time of year I have blown entire paychecks on pumpkin spice lattes, I have dove head first into a pan of pumpkin bars, I have made special trips to Village Inn for a slice (okay, sometimes an entire pie) of Pumpkin Cream… Read more »

Wanna know something? I hope so, cause I’m going to tell you something, probably lots of somethings before we’re all through with this…but first things first! I didn’t want to change my name after I got married, in fact, I contemplated not doing this at all! My maiden name was Hayley Ann O’Hara…and I have been told by a number of people, both friends and strangers, that it is probably the most adorable name ever. But, that’s not the reason… Read more »

Follow my blog with Bloglovin   It’s no secret that I like pictures…alright, full disclosure? I LOVE pictures, I’m obsessed with photographs and it is incredibly difficult for me to let a moment go by without capturing it on camera. And while some of my friends and loved ones probably find it incredibly annoying that I am interrupting stories, meals and concerts to snap a quick picture, I truly believe that some day they will thank me. Some day when… Read more »

This is a continuance of the series, A Guide to Sephora, you can see the introduction here! If you walk into Sephora unprepared…2 things are very likely to happen. 1. You’ll feel overwhelmed & inadequate and never want to come back again. or… 2. You’ll spend $600.00.
