I am quite sleepy today because I was up watching season finales last night. Both Greys Anatomy and Scandal had rather intense episodes last night – totally worth staying up. I know not everyone a) cares or b) has watched yet so no spoilers in the comments, please, but if you want to talk, I’m all for discussing the angst over email!
I did manage to pull together a few thoughts for today’s post, and of course I have links for you. But if you’re just interested in puppy pictures, go ahead and scroll to the bottom.
For over a year I’ve watched bloggers go on and on about Birchbox. I always felt like spending $10 a month on anything was just too much money. Then I added up my Starbucks bills (ouch!).
So when I heard this month’s box was going to have a Gossip Girl theme I got myself on the waiting list (yeah…there’s a waiting list for this) and crossed my fingers I would get off the list in time for this round.
The packaging was great! Now to inspect the contents…
You’re looking at 3 hair products, a facial moisturizer, nail polish, a sparkly blue eyeliner, and a gossip girl themed note card. Meh.
Realistically, I’m not sure what I was expecting. Yes, I ended up with $10 worth of products but I almost feel like this service would be better if you were able to select a little bit more specifically. For example, if I could get an entire box of nail products or an entire box of eye makeup I would be a happy girl.
:: COINS ::
This week I took a pile of coins to the coin machine and walked away with 157 dollars to spend on Amazon.com. The choice was to take cash and be charged a fee or take a gift card and not have to pay a fee – seems like an obvious choice, right? So I advise you to save your coins because they add up!
:: My 600 Pound Life ::
Last night I got sucked into a marathon of My 600 Pound Life. It’s not motivating or inspiring, it’s trashy reality TV with a gastric bypass backdrop. It’s hard to watch for about a thousand reasons but for some reason I could not look away. I can’t even recommend it to you because it’s that bad, but if it’s on and you can’t reach the remote…you know…
:: SPONSORSHIP ::
If I get one more email that begins “Dear Friend” and asks for ad space, I may actually lose my eyeballs from rolling them too hard. Like physically the muscles will just collapse and my eyes will fall out. Thank goodness that’s a total exaggeration because I just grossed myself out.
:: LINKS! ::
Postponing Joy by Skinny Emmie – are you letting fear keep you from getting what you really want?
How to Support a Friend Who’s Losing Weight by Amy at Coffee and Sunshine – I know, I am obsessed with this blog but she just gets it right.
Your Body is Not a Burden by Sable at Squat Like a Lady – Yes, another post from Sable, but again, she gets it right. This post is perfect for everyone to read. Every day.
Infographic: When the Lights Go Out, The World Eats Junk – I posted this to my Facebook page yesterday but I thought it was worth sharing again because it’s the story of my life. I start strong and my willpower fades as the day drags on.
:: IN CASE YOU MISSED IT ::
Don’t Get Stuck in the “I’m on a Diet” Loop. It’s time to reach your goal so you never have to say those words again!
And….cue baby Mocha!
Oh, wait, would you like a comparison of how tiny this boy still is? Here:
Latte is plotting:

So, you might be wondering, “Why aren’t there more pictures of Phog?” And this is why:
(yes, that was Phog falling off the bed while Latte majorly judges him)
Phog just can’t. Sit. Still. Also, if he does manage to stay put for a second, someone else has decided he wants to be a camera hog:
So cute. So ridiculously cute.
