July Confessions

don't be eye candy be soul food

Hey everyone! Is it just me or does time speed up exponentially in the summer months? It’s like the cold, winter months go by at super snail pace, but then the warm months where everyone wants to relax and have fun in the sun whip on by!

Oh well, it’s the first Wednesday of the month so you know what that means- Confession time!

Food Confessions:

  • I confess that I totally ate a peanut butter sandwich for dinner two nights last week. I just wasn’t craving anything and it seemed like the most logical, no-effort meal.
  • Until last week I hadn’t ate at Subway in over 3 years! Although it’s good, it’s just never a restaurant that pops into my head when I’m out and about. Apparently the $5 footlong isn’t a thing anymore either!

Beauty Confessions: 

  • Ya’ll know I’m all about makeup and beauty trends, but tightlining (applying eyeliner to the upper waterline) freaks me out.. I cringe when Youtubers do it on camera and shudder at the thought of doing it on myself.
  • I’ve never used an eyelash curler. Never. I’ve been blessed with long lashes that have a natural curl to them so I’ve never seen the necessity.

Random Confessions:

  • I always have the best intentions to go to bed early, and then it’s like all of a sudden my brain goes into overdrive remembering all the things I need to do/finish. Before I know it I’m laying my head down on the pillow 2 hours later, exhausted.
  • I make lists just so I can cross things off of them. Haha this is weird, I know.

Pet Peeve of the Week:

When people hold up traffic in the passing lane. I mean is there anything MORE annoying out there?! Every time I travel somewhere there’s always that one car that does nothing but ride in the passing lane the entire time, and holds up traffic because you know there’s always 74 18-wheelers you’re going to get stuck behind in the right lane, so next thing you know you’re going 35 on the interstate. All because of that one annoying car.

Humor/Funnies

    I recently started using an eyelash curler because I didn’t need to, but boy it makes a HUGE difference in how pretty the lashes look. Haha!

    • You have gorgeous lashes! I guess I’ve just never thought I needed to use one, plus they kindof scare me-haha

    I have no idea how anyone can tightline! It makes my eyes water just thinking about it

  5. I’m the same way when it comes to food and sleeping. I’m SUCH a night owl. I could stay up all night to get stuff done, but then HATE waking up in the morning. And my go-to meal is soup, so that I don’t have to put in a ton of work. hahah

    Posted 8.4.16 Reply
    • Yes, I know the feeling! I love having soup in the winter time especially! It’s such a comfort food! 🙂

  7. I eat PBJs for dinner all the time! I work late (and commute from NYC to Long Island) so sometimes when I get home I need to eat something that requires zero effort and 2-minute prep time. It’s a no brainer!

    I’ve also never used an eyelash curler before; same reason as you. Also they scare me.

    Posted 8.4.16 Reply
    • Haha me too! I was always afraid it would make them fall off or something-lol!

    Those funnies are hilarious…especially the Target/Walmart one. That eyeliner thing freaks me out too. I’ve been trying to go to bed earlier every night this week, and it’s just not happening. Ugh. Then, the mornings just suck.

    Posted 8.3.16 Reply
    • Funny story, I’ve literally been in bed by 9 pm every night this week, but still somehow manage to not fall asleep until close to 10 because my brain won’t calm down lol. I need to figure out a relaxing method or something.

      Posted 8.4.16 Reply
  11. I love making lists just to cross stuff off! I do it at the end of most days so I can feel like I accomplished SOMETHING that I meant to do. 😉

    Posted 8.3.16 Reply
    • Haha, I do that too sometimes. And I’ll put really easy stuff like eat lunch, eat dinner on there so I for sure am always crossing off at least something-lol

    Yeah I hate it when I drive to work and these so called drivers stay in that fast lane and I am like move. It drives your mommy crazy but I am like these people need to have there license taken from them. I think you get your long eye lashes from me cause I had a woman at work tell me she loved my long eye lashes. I told her thanks and my wife loves them, and I love my wife. Anyway that is a story I will need to tell you some time in the future. Love the post. Love you.. Dad

    this makes me LOL every time. First of all, peanut butter sandwich is delicious and I frequently have that for supper. Second.. fine will never mean “fine.” One time I said “I’m fine” and I legitimately meant it and my husband looked terrified……. 🙂

    • Hahah that’s so funny! My husband now knows if I ever say I’m fine, he needs to run for the hills! lol 😉

  18. I have been craving pancakes like nobody’s business — I ate them at least three times for dinner last week. I can’t stop ha ha! I tried using an eyelash curler once just to see and it was horrible. I am lucky that I do not need one either. Also, that little boy at “work” so me this week ha ha.

    I so hate when people ride slow in the passing lane. It drives me insane! I can not remember a time that I have ever used an eye lash curler either. They kind of freak me out. Lol. That little boy in the picture of trying to stay positive at work is def me lately!!

    I used an eyelash curler in high school and had still been hanging onto it. I haven’t used it in 10 years (my lashes are long enough for my liking). Yet I still have it!

    Posted 8.3.16 Reply
    • Yeah, it’s weird how we sometimes hold onto things for so long. I’m the same way with certain items.

      Posted 8.4.16 Reply
  29. I haven’t been to Subway in 3 years and the last time was because my husband wanted it–we lived in a remote part of Hawaii and it was in our neighborhood 🙂 and never needed an eyelash curler either and when I tried to use one once it just freaked me out having it so close to my eye! Lol 🙂

    Posted 8.3.16 Reply
    • Lol! Yeah I always had this fear that clamping them in an eyelash curler would cause them to fall out, which would be pretty horrible! haha

    Ditto to subway and drivers! Although, my confession is probably a bigger pet peeve with people that stand on the escalators on the left side so no one else can pass. It’s a big deal here in Washington, D.C.! 🙂

    • Oh I can imagine that gets old too! I think some people are just seriously oblivious of their surroundings-lol!

  35. Tight lining freaks me out too! I have tried it and have poked myself in the eye with the liner haha I ALWAYS say ok, TONIGHT I’m going to bed early and it never happens! I have such road rage and hate when ppl hold up traffic!

    Posted 8.3.16 Reply
    • I’ve heard it can cause infection in your eye too which also makes me leery. Nothing’s worth getting an eye infection over! Haha, I did manage to get to sleep at 9:30 last night, but my brain was all, you could go fold the clothes or watch a couple episodes of Netflix..lol 😉

  36. haha that cat telling everyone to go away…that’s me all the time. people ask if i have plans and I always say “yes”….those plans are going home to do nothing but nothing LOL.

  39. LOL at the meme for Target vs. Walmart and the curlers! A peanut butter sandwich for dinner two nights in a row sounds yummy and easy! And I couldn’t agree more about the fun summer months flying by while the dreary cold winter months go by much slower. Enjoy every last ounce of this beautiful summer <3

  40. Ugh! Left lane hang-outers are the worst! Then, when you pass them, they give you this look like, “What?” Grrr…

    I, too, have to be careful not to indulge in a second wind right before bedtime. I can’t allow myself to do anything. Seriously, a harmless little “I’ll take a moment or two and put away some clothes” turns into a two hour organizational task. I’m all about tidying up, but during the hour or so before bedtime, I have to remember to just say no! LOL!

    Happy Wednesday to you!

    Posted 8.3.16 Reply
    • Yes, I think our brains seriously re-charges itself or something. I need to start setting a certain wind-down time so I’m not so exhausted. Happy Wednesday!

And nothing enrages me more than someone that wants to go super slow in the fast lane. Ugh!
