Let's talk about life for a minute

Hello, beauty lovers! I just wanted to give you guys an update on what’s been happening. I know I spend all of my time fawning over new products, reviewing things, and showing off some looks, but I just wanted to let you in on a little bit of life stuff. This is going to be a rather candid post that I’m probably going to skim for spelling errors, but I’m not going to worry about my wording too much.

It feels like every time I take a step forward with this blog, something brings me two steps back, and it’s starting to get frustrating. As I’m sure most of you know, I went to Nova Scotia for a friend’s wedding and a vacation at the beginning of the month. When I came back, me and my boyfriend broke up. YUP…so that happened. I’m not bothered by the break-up because break-ups have never really bothered me–if a relationship or a friendship ends, there’s a reason for it, and I never want to spend negative energy dwelling on it. I always want to look forward and continue through life knowing that the time that I spent with that person was great, but now it’s over.

The thing that is getting in my way is that now I have to move because we live together. So at this moment, I’m sleeping in my bed in the bedroom, and he is sleeping in the office on a blow-up mattress. We’re still civil to each other, and we’re fine, but it’s a bit awkward considering my desktop and all of my work are in the office. This is my filming space, my blog space, and my work space, and now I don’t have control over it. Needless to say, I don’t get a lot of time alone in here to do much right now.

I just wanted to put this out there so no one thinks I’ve disappeared. I’m currently trying to move into my own place or find a roommate for October, and then hopefully things will simmer down a bit and go back to normal. I can’t even do my makeup at my own vanity with my lighting that I worked so hard to put together. I’m taking my makeup out of a makeup bag instead of drawers and using our tiny bathroom vanity. First world problems.

Anyways, I hope everyone is having a fantastic end to their summer. I can’t wait to get back onto a real schedule and back in the swing of things. Happy Monday!

    wow I had no idea, what a crazy end of summer it has been for you! i’m glad to hear you’re doing so well, you have such a great attitude I wish I could replicate! hopefully you are able to find a place soon, or you can move back to nova scotia and we can live together and share makeup…?

    You’ve got a positive attitude about the breakup, which is amazing! Everything might be a bit cramped and out of your control now, but it will definitely get better when you get into your own space!

    Move up to Ottawa with Leanne! All kidding aside, I love how open you just were, and I definitely love how strong you are – "breakups happen for a reason", yes – but I probably wouldn’t take it as easy as you…and I like that about you. 🙂

    Hoping you find a spot soon!

    • Hahahaha Nancy… I second this 😉

      Laura, you’re such a strong gal. You got this. So, I look forward to when you and your beauty station reunite! 😉
