Life Update – Moving, Chronic Illness, Laptop Breaks, Polyamory & More
I asked you all on Instagram if you wanted a personal Life Update or a product review, and you chose Life Update. I talk about moving, chronic illness, laptop breaks, polyamory & more. It’s very difficult for me to blog and create videos currently. Before it was because of moving, now it’s because the computer I’m using is slow and takes about twice as long to do anything. Not fun.
Youtubers I’ve Watched This Week
I’ve had very little time for anything not revolving around moving, unpacking or work in my life, but I’ve managed to squeeze in at least one video from each of these ladies.
Make sure you’ve watched my Home Tour 2018! If you’re looking to buy or sell a home in the greater Tampa Bay area, you need to call Lindsey! She really goes above and beyond to make the experience great.

I have to say, the Too Faced Life’s a Festival Palette was very easy to apply and blend out for this look. I’m kind of in love with it! It’s so much better than the White Peach palette. It may end up being a favorite for me like the Just Peachy mattes.
The Milk Luminous Blur Stick claims to go on clear, but it’s a light champagne gold on my skintone. It’s pretty but definitely expect it to give you a bit of warmth and shimmer. I actually really love the original Milk Blur Stick for filling in the pores on my nose and sides of my cheeks right now.

Life Update 2018 Video
I hope you enjoyed this life update and I’ll be bringing you something makeup related tomorrow!
Congratulations on your new home! Moving is one of those major stressors – behind death, birth and marriage. Our son was a month old when we moved into our home! And in 2016 I helped my son move from Minneapolis to Seattle. I recommend United Van Lines. Very professional.
Best to you, Ray and Dave.
It’s so encouraging to see that there are more cruelty-free beauty brands out there than I originally thought.
In this world, maintaining any form of stable, loving relationship is a really good thing and requires a lot of caring and maturity, not to mention creativity. Thank you for sharing!
We haven’t moved in over a decade and honestly, I never want to again. My poor mom just sold her home and it was pouring rain when the movers came. She was crying last night. I told her to go check into a hotel and chill.

I am so happy for you for opening up and talking about yourself. It takes a lot of courage to share “outside your niche” but just look at all the love and thank yous you’re getting!
Moving is the worst! But it will be worth it. Thanks for the update!
Ally McBeagle says
Moving is hell; yes it is. Bravo that you kept your sanity through moving day! I just watched your previous video so it was neat to see this one (I’m behind so I didn’t have to wait to see it – procrastination is good for something).
Last time I moved, a hurricane was blowing through, I can empathize – it rained sideways at one point – the driveway was too steep to get the truck close to the house so movers carried everything up (all wrapped in plastic- almost like shrink wrap – I didn’t even know they did this kind of thing) to the garage, unwrapped it all in the garage, put down floor protecting strips and we had no damage to our new house. It was a professional moving company and yes, it cost a fortune (and I tipped generously) but I was moving both a house (I had relocated a year prior for a job) and an apartment (temporary until my husband could move down).
It’s brave of you to share your personal relationship details, I hope the lonely toon trolls don’t take advantage of your transparency! The delete button is a good thing!
Rachel Runyan says
I’m glad you got a chance to update. Going to watch now.
I’ve been following your blog for a while but never commented, I just had to say I’m happy you shared that you’re polyamorous! I suspected that was the case but never wanted to ask since that’s not the focus of your blog, but I started following you because your aesthetic is so similar to mine and now we have one more thing in common. I really appreciate it when people in the public eye at all share that aspect of their lives so more people might learn something about it. Thank you!
