A LITTLE UPDATE

My poor little blog.
I feel I have neglected you these past few weeks.
It feels like forever since I have actually written about life.
Things have been go, go, GO.

And even though life has been so busy, it's been super fun.
Since I opened my little photography business, things have really picked up for me.
I have finally found something that not only pushes my creativity, but also that I can see myself doing  once we have a family.
It doesn't feel like working to me.
It's doing something I love and I get paid for it.
I used to be one those people who hated that everyone who owned a DSLR started a business.
Well I guess I'm one of those people.
I am just beyond grateful for opportunities I have to grow and to develop my talents.

So yes life has been just dandy.
Crazy.
But dandy.

Not much an update.
More of a: let me ramble about on and on about finding a job I am passionate about.

SUNDAY QUOTE

I haven't done one of these in a while.
I used to hate telling people I was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
It was such a terrifying ordeal for me.
But with much prayer over the years, and with the help of this little blog, it's become easier and easier to talk about my faith, and my identity.
Enjoy your Sunday.

GET TO KNOW: MEG & LEX

A few months ago I talked about pushing my boundaries with contacting other bloggers to collaborate and get to know better.
After months of thinking of new ideas I've decided to start a new blog series:
Get to know.
There are so many talented bloggers out there that inspire me, and I thought it would be a fun way to share their content with you!

So with that, meet Meg & Lex!
Youtube Channel: Meg & Lex Co.

What should people expect to find on your blog/channel?
Admittedly we do fancy all things beauty so you will find reviews & perhaps a few makeup tutorials. We aren't makeup artists by any means, but we sure enjoy pretending. Also, channeling our inner housewife, you will findl DIYs, recipes & other tidbits about our lives. Brace yourself for a whole lot of awkward, mildly inappropriate jokes & occasional giveaways.

Favorite video you've made and why?
Our TMI tag was good fun to film. We must have been hyped up on sugar because we couldn't hold it together for more than a few minutes without laughing hysterically. Next in line would be our DIY Cacti & Succulent Garden because succulents are adorable & rarely die. Plus it was fun to break out of the beauty box & get our hands dirty in the garden.
What inspires you?
Pink lipstick, our husbands & Target.

What are you closet essentials?
Meg: Days that require looking like a grown adult, I can't go wrong with a pair of wing-tipped shoes.
Lex: Floral everythang. Also, I believe kimonos will spruce up any look but still be comfy.
Why did you decide to start a YouTube channel?
Mostly because we needed a hobby (& we want to be best friends with Jaclyn Hill.)

Something random: 
Our three favourite makeup products
Meg: Garnier BB Cream (the oil free version,) Mac's Blush in Sunbasque & Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
Lex: Mac's Fix Plus, Anastasia Brow Wiz & Mac's Pro Longwear Concealer. 

These girls just seem like they would be so much fun to have a girls night with.
Seriously, I just want to hang out with them.
Go give them some love!
