I haven’t done one of these random brain dump posts in a while, so what better time than today! I can’t believe it’s April next week – can you? I feel like January crept by and then February and March have come and gone in the blink of an eye. I’ve been really busy lately and it’s a little overwhelming trying to juggle it all, but I’m doing the best I can. I have a lot of travel coming up, including our 10 year anniversary trip, so it’s only going to get more busy and overwhelming! I am one of those people that likes to be busy, but I tend to just shut down when I have too much on my plate. For instance, if I know I have to do one or two things, I can easily complete those tasks. However, when I know I have to do 15 things I will get so stressed about it that I just don’t do any of those things … or I wait until the last minute and procrastinate. Anyone else like this? Anyways, that was my little life update for today … and now let’s get into my five random thoughts for this Friday!
ONE– As you all know, I love to travel and this year is shaping up to be very busy in that department! Rob and I will be going to Europe for our 10 year anniversary trip in May and I am so looking forward to that trip. I also have trips planned to the Bahamas, Switzerland, Canada, New Hampshire, NYC, and potentially a few other places. As you all might remember from a previous post, I am a big advocate of weekend or holiday trips so you can maximize your time off.
TWO– I haven’t been into a TV show in months. I know this is weird for me since I am usually watching a new show every week. I am excited for Game of Thrones to start back up in April and for Big Little Lies in July. I think Homeland’s last season starts soon too. I hate how shows are now taking huge breaks in between seasons. I have also heard great things about the new show on ABC called The Fix. To be honest, I’ve been watching a lot of Lifetime Movie Network, my old standby that is always playing something good 😛
THREE– I hope you all watch my IG stories (@pipmegan) because I do a lot of behind the scenes stories from beauty procedures. For instance, this week alone I took everyone along with me to get PRP microneeding and eyebrow microblading. I have saved everything under highlights on my IG profile, so you can always go back and watch the beauty related stuff anytime. When I polled everyone a couple of weeks ago about why engagement has been low on Instagram, an overwhelming amount of people said that they don’t really scroll Instagram anymore and that they only watch stories. I am trying to think of more cool and unique content for stories so stay tuned. I appreciate you all checking out my stories and always interacting with them.
FOUR– Does anyone else feel like they jump on trends early and then by the time the trends are popular you’ve already moved on? Let me give you an example- almost 3 years ago I got a pair of Golden Goose sneakers and back then no one really knew about them and they weren’t really popular. Fast forward and now they are all the rage and I don’t even know if I want to get another pair or just be over them because they are so trendy now. A second example- I got some of those pearl hair clips a few months ago and now they are ALL I see on everyone. I guess I have a good radar for what is gonna be popular? Or maybe I just troll too many European girl’s IG accounts? I feel like they are always 2-4 years ahead of us with the trends.
FIVE– I think I’ve finally found a good pair of strip lashes that I like (I am wearing them in the above photos). I have had such a time with my lashes lately. I got eyelash extensions for over a year and loved them so much, but all the sudden started having an allergic reaction to the extension glue, so I had to stop getting them. I tried strip lashes, magnetic lashes, and could never really find any that I liked or that were easy to put on. I saw someone wearing these a while back and had to know if they were real or fake. I promptly bought a box of them and I love them so much. If you are looking for the lash extension look with a strip lash, these are for you!
Have a great weekend everyone!
