Full House!

I have a crazy obsession with the show Full House. I watched it all the time growing up, and I still watch it to this day.

I may even have a Jesse and The Rippers shirt...

So, you can imagine my surprise and extreme excitement when I found out that Uncle Jesse and the rippers were going to reunite on the Jimmy Fallon show and play!

Here is the video incase you missed it!

Uncle Jesse looks pretty much the same! I was also very excited that Aunt Becky came on to the stage as well!

I really wish they would have a reunion episode!

I will leave you with some very inspiring words from Michelle:

Where I have been.

Hello loves! I know it has been a super long time since I have written but lots happened! 

I have a condition that is called Endometriosis. The Mayo clinic definition of this is: Endometriosis (en-doe-me-tree-O-sis) is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus (endometrial implant). Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, bowel or the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond your pelvic region.

I also tend to get many ovarian cysts that grow to be bigger than my ovary itself. This is extremely painful. I first developed these symptoms when I was 14. Some weeks, I feel good, others not so much. 

Last month though, I got really sick from this. I was in constant pain and in and out of the E.R. After a long talk with my GYN doctor we decided that surgery was my best option. 

I checked into the hospital on the 24th of June. I was in surgery for close to 4 hours where they removed a bunch of scar tissue and "spruced up" my ovaries. 

I unfortunately am a very unlucky person who ended up with a million and one complications. This included extreme vomiting, a rash, an abscess and finally a kidney infection. 

I am starting to feel a lot better now though and that is all that matters! I have a few pics from surgery day and that's about it. Hard to take pictures when you feel that bad. 

It took 5 hospital staff and 7 attempts for them to get an actual IV in me. Those are the bruises that they left behind. 

So yeah, that's what I have been up too. I will be back to writing more fun and less serious entries soon!!

By the way- David and I went home this weekend to see family and I got to spend lots of time with this cutie!

Influenster "I do" Vox Box!

I realize I have been missing in action for quite some time. I have had a lot happen and I promise to tell you all about it next week!

I signed up for Influenster a few months ago. I wasn't sure I would ever be picked to receive a box but to my surprise I was contacted about being sent the I do vox box!!

I must admit that I checked my mail multiple times a day to see if it had arrived yet.. I promise I am not crazy!

It finally arrived a few days later.

 I quickly opened it to see what was inside.

 I don't wear heels often. I can barely walk barefooted without tripping  much less in something that has any type of height. I did put these in the heels that I do have and they made them much more comfy. I did have a problem though with it not sticking properly to the soles of my shoes and the insole kind of slid around. It could have just been my shoes though.

 Next was these lashes. I have always been intrigued about fake eyelashes but they kind of intimated me and I never took the plunge to buy them. These seemed really nice and I tried to use them but I had a huge fear of gluing my eyes shut so I didn't use much glue. Because of that, they didn't really stick well. I am open to trying again one day soon and hopefully I will have better results.

Then there was this toothpaste. It claims that it whitens teeth after one brushing. It does in fact make your teeth whiter, but it's due to it being more of an optical illusion instead of lasting results. The toothpaste had a very nice taste to it. But, I felt like my teeth didn't ever really feel "clean".  So I would really only use this toothpaste if I was going to a event where I wanted my teeth to look more white, instead of a everyday toothpaste.
I was super happy to see these q-tips! They are a must in my everyday makeup routine. I am awful at doing my eye makeup and constantly have to fix the mistakes I make. These were super helpful because they came to a point instead of a rounded edge. This made it super easy to get into the smaller places that I messed up on instead of messing with the parts that were perfect. I love these and plan on picking up more soon!

When I first saw this in the box, I wasn't sure if I would ever use it. I just kind of threw it into my purse and forgot about it. A few days later, I was at the movies when I started to get a headache. Movies are loud and my headache started pounding. Then I remembered that I threw this in my purse and dug it out and took it. The taste was actually not bad at all and the best part? My headache was gone in 30 mins!  I will be getting more of these soon. It's really easy to just throw it in your purse or gym bag and forget about it until you need it!
Finally, this was in the box. I looked over it and it had some really nice things in it. Unfortunately, being a college student, the prices were kind of steep for me. I gave it to my boyfriend though, and I don't think he enjoyed the hint. haha.

Overall I was super satisfied with the things I received and hope to get more boxes in the future!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
