I've missed you guys! Well the few readers I have so far! I felt like sharing what I've shared this last week on my Instagram, which you should definitely be following me emeliabbyxo, I haven't done anything too exciting or eventful this last week or so. Starting to welcome beautiful fall time to southern California, a quick gel mani on myself, celebrating an anniversary, entering a giveaway, and keeping that selfie game strong!
Let's talk about fall -- the best time of the year, duh! I'm from Washington state where at this time the leaves are already changing color, the air is crisp, and you can actually enjoy a hot cup of coffee and not be melting minutes later. I miss it so, but the temperature is actually starting to cool down here in SoCal, what a weird term. Still not as cool as I like being a true Washingtonian at heart but I'm excited to actually experience something away from my comfort zone.
Along with the weather comes the decorating, new color trends for nails, breaking out pumpkin scent everything -- don't lie, you love it too. For the first manicure of the season, I used a gorgeous deep blue gel called Blue Bayou. This color is deep but not too deep to see some violet undertones it gives off in the light and I absolutely love it! It's from the nail company ASP and you can purchase this at Sally Beauty Supply -- I've actually had this color well over 6 months and I've just now tried out this brand, what was I thinking waiting this long?!
Yesterday, the 29th, it was the 5 year anniversary of being with my honey boo. We've only been married since last December, but my life with him these last 5 years have been nothing short of wonderful and crazy. So we still celebrate this date :) I'll leave my inspiring and loving note that I left on instagram with a picture from our wedding:
"Today's date means more to me than any other in the year! 29 years ago, my mother and father said their I Do's, I will always believe that they had the greatest love story of all time. 5 years ago, my best friend asked me to finally be his girlfriend and later help me create our great love story. We still have many chapters to write in this novel but if my time were to end shortly, I would have spent it with the love of my life and the one who truly makes me happy. Colin is still my best friend and I am so lucky and blessed to have him text me 5 years ago and nervously ask me to be officially his, little did he know that that text was the beginning of our story ❤️ make today special and tell your loved one how much you love them and cherish their time! #ourlovestory #5year #Anniversary #092914"
Some other non eventful things this week I mostly just spent practicing my makeup and trying, errr, thinking about, well maybe something new will happen in the near future. Oh, and I entered a giveaway for the limited edition Amrezy palette! They announce the winners tomorrow!!! *Fingers Crossed*
Tomorrow is October and I am welcoming this month with open arms! I can't wait because this month is going to be amazing! I'm going to be starting my makeup program soon to be an officially certified makeup artist, don't worry I'll blog about the whole thing! Also my hubby comes home from being away for work! All in all, I can feel like this holiday season is going to be amazing, and I hope your fall and winter months are wonderful and filled with love and inspiration! Keep burning those pumpkin candles and enjoying your PSL from Starbucks :)
