Reading: Not reading anything this week. I'm planning on going to a book store this weekend, so hopefully this girl gets some books! 

Watching: I've been really into Bachelor In Paradise. No idea why. 

Thinking About: A lot. A lot is on my mind right now. Life is confusing sometimes. 

Planning: My weekend! It's gonna be fun! :)

Ins & Outs #4!

Thursday, August 25, 2016
It's been a little over a month since I've posted an ins and outs post. Um...what?! It's definitely time for ins and outs! 


-Benefit Cosmetics Total Moisture Face Cream 

My skin has been going through a phase, I think it's mostly just because I've been super stressed and exhausted. But my skin has been looking dull, and feeling really dry. I picked up a sample of this, because basically everyone I know uses it and loves it. Um, it's amazing! It's so hydrating! And it gives my face a nice glow, which was desperately needed. I'll definitely be picking up the full size! 

-Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent! Eye Cream

If you've followed me for awhile, you know that I used to use the Clinique dramatically different eye cream. And while I was using it, I did like it but, I just felt like it was time to change up what I was using. This eye cream is very similar to the Clinique one. It's very hydrating, very rich. It's also really helped with my dark circles. I'll be picking up the full size of this product too! 


Something that I struggle with because I work from home, is balancing my work life and my personal life. Planning has definitely helped me find some balance! I've been using the Day Designer, and really loving it. I'm actually planning (ha) on doing a blog post with some tips on how I've been able to balance my life! 


This country girl finally got a pair of boots and I LOVE them! I never want to take them off haha! They are my favorite thing! They're Corral brand, which is a brand that I knew that I wanted. I had my heart set on that brand haha! Anyways, I just loveee the embroidery detailing. They're just so pretty! 



UGH I am SO tired of rain! Like, I know that we probably need the rain but, I have a photo shoot scheduled for tomorrow OUTSIDE. I'd prefer if it didn't rain for the rest of today and tomorrow so I can get my pictures done! 


This is SO random but, I hate cheese right now! I don't know why! I can't stand the smell of it. And it's not like it's some weird cheese, all that's in the house right now is cheddar. If it was like gorgonzola cheese, I could understand why I'd be hating the smell! But yeah. Weird. Just felt like sharing that. Anyone else hate cheese right now? 

...Well this post got weird fast! 

Anyways, I think that's it for my ins and outs this week. What are your ins and outs? Let me know in the comments below! :)

Skunk totally thought I couldn't see her, but I did! 

Reading: Not reading anything this week. I finished reading the Lauren Conrad L.A Candy series. I need to either order some more books or go to the library. 

Watching: I'm actually not watching anything on TV right now. I didn't watch Netflix or Hallmark over the weekend, which is not like me. I'm trying to think what I have been watching lately....I can't think of any shows that I've been watching. I haven't even had HGTV on, which is weird because that's usually my go to channel. 

Thinking About: How nice it finally is to sit down and write a blog post! I've been away from my computer for a few days now, and it's just nice to get back and get back to work. 

Planning: I'm planning a lot of things right now. One of those things you guys will be seeing on the blog next week but, I'll probably post a little sneak peek on Instagram (@chelseamakeup14) this weekend! 

Loving: Spotify. Specifically, listening to George Jones on Spotify. I didn't know that his songs were on there! I now have an oldies playlist on Spotify with, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, and more. I'm kind of happy about it!

Before I get into this blog post, let's just take a moment to look at this sunset picture from the other night. GORGEOUS! 

Reading: On the second book in the Lauren Conrad L.A Candy series! I really forgot how much I love this series. 

Watching: I haven't really watched much TV or Netflix lately. Over the weekend I watched a couple of Hallmark movies, which were cute, but super cheesy. 

Thinking About: How nice it would be to have an assistant! Seriously, I need help with my work! There's not enough hours in the day for one person (me) to get everything done. *sigh* 

Planning: Not really planning anything right now, which is shocking because I just bought two new planners at Target the other day. ;) 

Loving: Coffee. All the coffee. Mostly iced coffee though. Iced caramel macchiatos from Starbucks!

High Five For Friday!

Friday, August 05, 2016
I used to do this linkup all the time on my other blog, and I tried to find the linkup again but couldn't find it. Anyways, thought I would bring this post to the new blog and maybe make this a weekly thing again! 

1. Last weekend I went for a drive through the country because I was on the hunt for some different scenery to take pictures of. I am the kind of person that will randomly stop along the side of the road (in a safe place though!) and take a picture. I wanted to take a picture of an old farmhouse that I've loved for many years, but sadly someone tore it down. :( But I did get a picture of a windmill because I have a thing for windmills. Especially older ones that you can tell have been there for many years. 

2. On Tuesday, Cassey Ho the creator of Blogilates retweeted my tweet! I haven't really talked about this to my blog followers or really anywhere other than my personal Facebook, but I have lost 43 pounds. I am 15 pounds away from my goal weight. And I'm pretty excited about it! I want to do a whole weight loss story blog post really soon.

3. Wednesday was such a fun day! I went shopping with my Mom, Grandma, and Great Aunt. We went to ALL the stores haha! I found some Quay sunglasses at TJ MAXX. I also got to pick up my Urban Decay Smoky palette that I had my Dad pick up when they were on sale a week or so ago. And I went to Starbucks because duh. 

4. Zazzle has been having 50% off of school supplies all this week, and today is the last day. Use the code READY4SCHOOL. You can check out my shop here

5. Dan & Shay From The Ground Up makes me tear up every time I hear it. I finally watched the video and bawled like a baby! It's such a beautiful song that gives me ALL THE FEELS. If you haven't heard the song, you really need to listen to it! Actually, I'll leave the video here so you can bawl like a baby too. 

Let me know if you'd like to see High Five For Friday become a thing here on the blog! Hope you guys have a great Friday! :) 

My Morphe Eyeshadows: The Singles

Thursday, August 04, 2016
I'm sure you're all familiar with the brand Morphe. It's basically the new MAC in the beauty community. Today I thought I'd share with you my Morphe eyeshadows. This is going to be a two part post, first starting with the single eyeshadows and then in part two I'll share my palettes. Let's get right into it! 

The eyeshadow refill pans (or singles) are around $2.29 which is kind of a steal for eyeshadows, in my opinion. The refillable eyeshadow palettes vary, but the one that I have is $6.99 and holds 12 eyeshadows, except for some reason I only bought 10. I have no idea why. Anyways, moving on! 

I think the quality of these eyeshadows is absolutely amazing! They are SO pigmented! They apply very nicely and blend very seamlessly. I personally feel like they're comparable to MAC. Like I don't even want to buy MAC eyeshadows anymore, I would much rather use Morphe eyeshadows. THAT'S how much I love these eyeshadows! 

Below, I have a closeup picture of each eyeshadow along with a swatch of the eyeshadow and the name listed below it. I actually really tried with these swatch pictures guys! Ha ha! I used to be SO BAD at swatch pictures. Actually...I still am pretty bad at swatch pictures. Anyways, here's the swatches and closeups! 



Creme Brulee

Deep Skin


Golden Glory





You can find all of these single eyeshadows and MORE over on the Morphe website

Have any of you guys tried any Morphe products? Let me know what you thought of them in the comments below!

Reading: I've started reading Lauren Conrad's L.A Candy series again. I read the series awhile ago, like when it was first released. But I really like her writing style, and it's kind of similar to how I want my writing style to be. 

Watching: I'm watching Gossip Girl on Netflix for like the 500th time. It's my all time favorite show! Plus, I'm basically Blair. That's what all my friends say anyway haha. 

Thinking About: My Etsy shop! It's open again! I have so many more sticker designs coming to the shop soon. I'm just so excited to finally have an Etsy shop open again. And for all my blog friends, enjoy 15% off with BLOGFAM15. 

Planning: August! First of all, I can't believe that it's August. Like when did that happen?! I'm just really excited for this month. I'm excited to see what God has planned for me this month.  

Loving: Summer nights with friends, swimming in the pool, tan lines, iced coffee, kittens, goats, going for walks, staying up late, country music, dancing, a certain album, driving with the windows down and music up, writing, drawing, painting, planner stickers, messy buns, and that's it. 

And yes, I did post this same exact thing in a currently post from awhile ago.
