{30 Day Snap - Day Thirty | A Great Season}

This 30 Day Snap has really been a great experience. Making the effort to take and post a photo everyday has made me realize all things considered the season of life I'm in right now has been a great one.

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-Nine | 1st and 15th}

Living in a military town, this is what life looks like when the 1st or the 15th falls anywhere close to a weekend. Waiting in line...

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-Eight | A Little Break}

Taking a little break while setting up my laptop again. With the knowledge that all your information has been saved onto an external hard drive and the cloud, it can be quite liberating to be able to start over.

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-Seven | Unfortunate Crashes}

This honestly has to be the best $7 I ever spent on Amazon. My laptop is quite the dinosaur... once again, it crashed and the need to restore the hard drive back to the factory settings became necessary. After anxiously purchasing this external case over 3 years, I think the search is officially on for a new laptop.

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-Six | Happy Finds}

Who knew Google Play had gift card? 
As someone who attempts to limit the amount of websites that keep my payment info on file, I was very happy to find this gift card for Google Play at Wal-Mart today. This also helps with the amount of spending I do... 
Candy Crush can get expensive, you know. Ha!

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-Four | Childhood Flashback}

 What do you do when the AC goes out in your office? We snag a bunch of old school popsicles from the Company's freezer, turn on a ton of fans and settle in for a long afternoon. That 44oz lemonade in the background definitely helped as well.

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-Three | Today's Message}

"We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed." 
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NLT

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-Two | 5th Cup}

I absolutely love drinking hot beverages out of clear glasses/containers. It just makes everything taste better! Anyways, after going out for breakfast I spent the day organizing and decluttering... which always calls for at least 5 five of coffee. Ha!

***Update 6-23-13: Fail. When I pulled up Blogger to start today's post, I noticed that I saved Day Twenty-Two blog post but never published it. Fail. Ha!***

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty-One | Samples Samples Samples}

Spent the evening catching up on things and sorting through my many MANY samples again. I'm meeting a fellow sample lover for breakfast in the morning... and already have a bag half full of samples for her. Spread the love.

{30 Day Snap - Day Twenty | Bad Day}

What can I say, I arrived at work this morning and within less than an hour, my day starting going down hill... very quickly. Work days like this definitely calls for a large bag of gummy bears (my go-to work comfort snack) and a super large caffeinated beverage.

{30 Day Snap - Day Nineteen | Stack of Mags}

Amazing! I just came across a large stack of unread magazines. With everything being downloaded to my Nook HD these days, I forget how satisfying it can be to flip through the actual magazine.

{30 Day Snap - Day Eighteen | The Works}

I honestly don't know why I even go to this page when ordering pizza from Papa Johns. I always end up going to My Account and choosing my saved Fave order. A large original crust The Works pizza with Onions, Baby Portabello Mushroom, Pepperoni, Green Peppers, Spicy Italian Sausage, Canadian Bacon. On one half Black Olives and the other Extra Cheese. Yep, it is about to go down{in my best Kevin Hart voice}!

{30 Day Snap - Day Seventeen | Dangerous Times}

The most dangerous time for my bank account is when I make a decision to head over to the store version of the music/DVD/book sections of eBay... 2nd & Charles. I just can't stay away...

{30 Day Snap - Day Sixteen | Semi-Annual Sale}

Since purchasing the Watermelon Lemonade candle from Bath & Body Works, I have become slightly obsessed with fruity candles and scents. And it doesn't help that Bath & Body Works started their semi-annual sale either. I got a little carried away in the store and purchased a lot more than what is pictured. I plan to keep everything pictured and everything else will be gifts of some sort. I love a good sale!

{30 Day Snap - Day Fifteen | Mini Surprises}

I'm not really sure why, but it always surprises me a little when my Birchbox arrive in the mail. Its like I forget that it is a subscription service... so when they arrive I think for a half second "Wait I didn't order this," then it dawns on me that it is a subscription and I proceed to tear into the box. Like getting mini surprises each month... while I normally hate surprises, I love these.

{30 Day Snap - Day Fourteen | New Polish}

Yesterday I received an email from Influenster about the new SinfulShine nail polishes from SinfulColors, so of course I had to add a stop at Walgreens to my To Do List for today. Oh my... I wanted every single color! However, due to the amount of nail polishes I own already, I have a rule that involves purchasing only one nail polish at a time. So, I decided to go with the shade called Man Hunt. This shade is in the second column, third shade from the top. It is like the prefect shade of light green. Once I paint my nails with it, I'll show the color up close. I already know the next shade I will buy is going to be that amazing teal shade at the top of the second column, called My Kryptonite. Can't wait to try it!

{30 Day Snap - Day Thirteen | Slow Motion}

It never fails that everything goes into slow motion the day before I take some time off from work. This morning, it seemed like I would never make it to noon... and the only thing that got me through the afternoon was the large mocha iced coffee I picked up while at lunch. Talk about a sugary caffeine high... what a great way to start a long weekend.

{E.L.F. Daily Moisture Stick}


I have truly started to see EyesLipsFace’s Daily Moisture Stick everywhere. I first seen this moisture stick in a post on the Fab Finds Under $50 blog back in March. After seeing a few friends with it and recently seeing Emily from Beauty Broadcast raving about it, I decided it was finally time to place an order. It is said to “nourish and hydrate skin for a softer, smoother, more revitalized look.” But at a price of $6, it definitely made me hesitate just a bit… but E.L.F. was running a 50% off their Best Sellers promotion when I ordered.  I carry it in my bag to use frequently on my cuticles after years of nail-biting, my cuticles are still in a terrible state. I am definitely a fan of this stick so far. With 50% off, of course I had to get some other items that have been recommended to me over the months. The lip exfoliator, which I still have not tried yet. The personal blend foundation SPF 15 in Dark, which I was told would help with my very oily face. The small stipple brush, which is gift to a friend. The lip stain in Nude Nectar, which I prefer to sticky lip glosses. I must say, this is less than $20 well spent.

{30 Day Snap - Day Twelve | Birthday Surprises}

Trying to plan a birthday surprise for my now 7-year-old niece is extremely tough when you know the decoration she will love the most are the balloons. The things I do for that chick...

{30 Day Snap - Day Eleven | Game Obsession}

Game Obsessions: Last month it was Angry Birds Star Wars, this month it is Candy Crush. 
These games suck you in so much, that you honestly look up and wonder where the time has gone.

If you wanna join in, these games are free on Google Play... why not drag you down with me? Ha!

{30 Day Snap - Day Ten | The Waiting Game}

Have you have been driving along when, all of a sudden, the sky opens up and starts pouring down raining once you arrive at your destination? Then you're left with the decision to wait it out in the car or to make a run for it. I usually go with the thought to wait it out. Unfortunately, rain is not my friend and as time drags on with no sign of the rain letting up, I make a run for it and get completely soaked in the process. And it never fails that once I'm inside within 5-10 minutes the rain lets up... I just can't win.

{30 Day Snap - Day Nine | Tea, Please.}

I have said it before, that I love living in a place where when you ask for tea to drink, people assume you want the coldest sweetest tea they can find. Never disappointed!

{30 Day Snap - Day Eight | Spring Candle}

Living in the south, I'm usually not a fan of burning candles in the Spring/Summer. Even though the AC is on, just the thought of a candle burning makes me feel like it is too warm inside the house. While running errands this morning, I pop into Bath & Body Works to get a whiff of their Watermelon Lemonade candle, after seeing Cora (from VintageOrTacky) talk about it in her Iron Man makeup tutorial. This candle smells amazing!!! And, as you can see, they are having a sale on their small 4oz candles. Had to get it...

{30 Day Snap - Day Seven | Cake Day}

Yes, there is such a thing as Cake Day! Well, at the company I work for there is such a thing. The first Friday of every month, we celebrate the birthdays in that month with cake, chips, soda, etc... at 9AM in the morning. Always something to look forward to.

{30 Day Snap - Day Six | Who Done It?}

I love a good murder-mystery show. Netflix has to be the best place to watch multiple episodes/seasons without having to buy each one. Between my laptop and the Netflix app on my blu-ray player, I'm currently working my way through Midsomer Murders right now... good stuff.

{30 Day Snap - Day One | College Days}

Finding this CD at Wal-Mart really brings back memories from my college days. While these songs are a lot older than my college days… standing around with friends and strangers singing “End of the Road” at the top of your lungs is one of the best memories I have from those long Thirsty Thursday nights.
