Three on Thursday| ACM Awards, Makeup & More!

It’s TGIT and I am super excited to be joining Stephanie at Not Entirely Perfect for Three on Thursday. I have followed her blog for years and super excited to join her today for 3 on Thursday. Today I am going to share my list of three things that I am loving this week!

One| ACM Awards
Carrie killed it. She literally killed it. Immediately after watching her performance of Cry Pretty I jumped on iTunes and bought this new single. She not only sounded amazing but she looked amazing. If you have been living under a rock you wouldn’t know that she was in an accident at her house a few months back and had a ton of stitches. Her new single Cry Pretty has played on my phone, ipad, and macbook at least 10 times a day since the beginning of the week. I seriously can’t get enough. Proof of how good this song is can be found on the iTunes charts. Seriously what a great song! Take a listen for yourself. It’s a total Female Anthem!


Two| Bobbi Brown Capri Nudes Eye Shadow Palette
Recently I went on a little bit of a Bobbi Brown shopping spree. Since I literally use all the products daily. One that quickly landed in my daily makeup section was the Capri Nudes Eye Shadow Palette. This palette is seriously gorgeous. You can achieve the most natural daytime look and then amp it up to a smoky nighttime look. I seriously am obsessed with it!


Three| All Things Planning
Over the past month I have really wanted to get into planning. I think with my current job diving into planning could really help. I did go into this a little in yesterday’s post so you can check that out for more. However, I have spent a ton of money buying B6 size planners, planner stickers and accessories. I am waiting for everything to come in, but I am so excited to get started planning. I have found some amazing items like this planner I shared on my instagram as well as some stickers from shops like My Newest Addiction, Simply Watercolor Co & Scribble Prints Co. Make sure you follow me on instagram as I will be posting pictures of my hauls as they come in.

Make sure you head over and check out Stephanie’s blog! Good news is that we have one more day till the weekend! Happy Thursday, hope you all enjoy TGIT(For all the Greys lovers out there).

Pinteresting Picks Wednesday| The Backwards Way & How to Triple Blog Traffic

Welcome back to Pinteresting Picks Wednesday! How’s the week going thus far? I seriously attempted to write this post while watching the voice. However, I did get work done on commercial breaks. Well a week like mine has been challenging to say the least, but life is what we make of it right? I admit I am addicted to Pinterest and have been for years, which is what instigated this post series. Want to join me? Leave your post below. I would love to see the Pinteresting Picks you’ve discovered this week. Here are my favorites for the week. I will preface this by saying I have truly discovered a new favorite blogger (Erica from Coming Up Roses the Blog). I recommend checking all of these out!

I admit I was looking for ways to optimize my time to get more done. There’s such a big thrill associate with marking something off the “to-do” list. I’m the kind of person that is consistently overloaded and I always am looking for a way to knock off things on my to-do list quicker. This post is how I discovered the “eat the frog” vs. backwards technique. Erica totally blew my mind with, “My Totally Backwards Way to Get More Done.” I admit I wondered if she was totally crazy or a total genius when I started reading this post. I can’t believe I randomly came across this post from Pinterest. It’s truly eye opening.

 

As someone that is currently drowning in sticky notes, I am looking forward to doing the “Backwards Way” technique. Honestly just reading this post had my wheels slowing down and stress level decreasing. I really like her ideas on prioritizing and booking hours. In my line of business, I really think this will work for me. The overworked, frustrating life that I have been living is totally no bueno! Seriously most days I run around like a chicken with my head cutoff. I literally know the Backwards way is totally going to work for me. 

 

I’ve ordered a planner, planner stickers, accessories and once they come in I am hella determined to conquer my life using the tips and tricks in this post. Are you more of a “eat the frog” or “Backwards Way” kind of girl? 

 

 

The next post that intrigued me was, “How I Tripled my Blog Traffic in Two Weeks.” Seriously mind blown. Plus pinning images 50 times in one day. Considered double mind blown. Nope, seriously just nope. In comes Tailwind. Granted I’ve heard of tailwind before, but never explained to this magnitude. In this post, she listed out clearly what you need to do before you sign up for tailwind, as well as a guide to tailwind, and how it works. I think it’s important to research a program before signing up. 

 

What makes this post stand out is that even if you don’t want to use tailwind, the motivating tips you can take from this post would make a difference in your Pinterest game.
