It’s been awhile since I’ve debuted my latest DIY project but I can assure you- I am working on it and hope to share it soon. Would you like a hint though? It involves old horseshoes and string. (I know, you have no idea.) Are you guys currently working on any projects?? I have a feeling this fall is going to be all about DIYs for me. I’ve always wanted to make my own lip balm/stain/gloss… clearly I’m still working out the details. Lip balm is kind of a “thing” for me, in that I have way too much of it and have never left a Walgreens or CVS without purchasing at least one. If you have ever made your own lip beauty product, you must tell me more!
Speaking of beauty tips… I am so excited to introduce you all to one of my current Soul Provider sponsors, Lindsay from the blog Bourbon, Lipstick & Stilettos! I have really enjoyed getting to know this sweet gal better the past month and she has quickly become one of my go-to babes for beauty tips and latest beauty products. (Not to mention, I’m so obsessed with her latest birthday gift(s) idea, I have become quite the regular on her Pinterest boards.)
Determined, perfectionist, stubborn, and independent.
I’d love to work from home, so any job that would allow me to do that would be a dream! I’d also love to work in the bourbon industry. Maybe a taste-tester?
I originally named my blog “The Princess and the Pea” but wanted something original and fun. Since the blog reflects who I am, I went with Bourbon, Lipstick, and Stilettos: three of my all-time favorite things!
I met most of my closest friends through my sorority. Those women continue to be my best friends to this day. However, I consider Jason (my boyfriend of over six years) to be my best friend. We actually met at work, though we’ve thankfully both moved on career-wise!
When I was growing up, my parents always told me: “If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.” I hated hearing that, but it’s on my mind constantly now. I am much more selective about who I allow in my life. Drama and negativity in relationships will weigh you down.
Jason and my family inspire me to be a better person and inspire me to love. I want to emulate their actions. I also get inspiration from women I’ve met in the blogging community. They challenge me to work harder and smarter. I’m in awe of the work of these women! Blogging is not easy!
I feel beautiful when I’m dressed up for a night out with Jason, but lately I’ve felt beautiful after a tough workout. Strong is beautiful!
