I Lost My Full Time Job

Jesus. I can't seem to win these days. A little over a year and a half ago I started working a second job. Until then, I was working at a spa/hotel with only 16 hours a week guaranteed. I had been picking up a few extra shifts here and there, but the extra shifts were becoming fewer and further in between. I couldn't (and still can't) survive on such few hours at my state minimum wage. Since then I did receive a pay raise of 20¢ but that brings me to $10.30 an hour...for 16 hours a week. It's not ideal. I secured a temporary position with the company my sister, the one I live with, works at. I had to change positions because of her promotion but then I got my own promotion in June, with an official start date in July. And now I no longer have that job. So, what happened?

September 2017 Ipsy Review

It's been a while since I did one of these. I haven't been in love with Ipsy lately, but this month was a surprise hit. The weirdest part is that when I checked before getting the bag, I had entirely different items! I was not mad to be completely surprised with what was in the bag though because I was not excited to get the items I had seen prior to the bag arriving.

Learning to Declutter

We recently moved into a smaller apartment. Not only do we have less rooms, the rooms themselves are smaller. Mine in particular is giving me some problems. I have a queen size bed, a nightstand, a chest, a bookcase, and a behemoth of a desk. I have to try to fit all of that into one tiny room. It's not working very well for me.

September 2017 Boxycharm Review

I just got my first Boxycharm and I am wondering why I didn't get this sooner! I've been following the spoilers and reviews for Boxycharm for over a year on MySubscriptionAddiction and have seen the value. I just had a rule that my subscriptions had to be $10 a month or less. But I couldn't resist anymore, and took the plunge. Here's what I got!

Moving Part Four: Tips & Tricks For Unpacking

And we're in the home stretch! I think that's how that saying works, I'm a football girl! Anywho, welcome to part four of my moving series. This is the final installment, all about unpacking. I'm sure I'm not the only one who hates unpacking just as much as I hate packing. It's just as tedious, and not exactly satisfying until the very end. And even then, it can just be so frustrating! This being part four, you can find parts 1-3 here.
