Life This Week


  • This week, Twilight got her staples out, no longer has to wear a cone, and had her last test for mange. She’s free!!
  • I have a new obsession, and it’s Sparkling Ice. Gimme all the flavors! Maybe now I’ll drink a little less Dr Pepper.
  • Last Friday, our team won third place at trivia. I guess it’s not too surprising, considering we had an 11-man team, but I don’t think we’ve ever placed at the new location we’ve been going to. Hopefully we’ll do well tonight, too!
  • My roommate has been home a little more, and it’s been nice! Of course, I say this right before she’s leaving for an entire week, but after that she’ll be home more, too.
  • Just so there’s no confusion: Tim and I are going “radio silent” about IVF until we reach some sort of conclusion and are ready to talk about it. I will be blogging about the initial IVF cycle soon, though.
  • I’m counting the days until Fall TV is in full swing! I’m most looking forward to The Muppets, Scream Queens, and the return of Shondaland. What are you excited to watch?

NYX has been killing it with their brow products lately. Tame & Frame is almost a dupe for ABH’s Dipbrow, and the Micro Brow Pencil is almost a dupe for ABH’s brow wiz. I might even like them more, because they’re so much more affordable! I’m also loving NYX’s dewy setting spray, a great (cheaper) alternative to Urban Decay’s setting spray. The Colourpop lippie stick in Grind is a favorite lately, as well as the Kardashian Beauty Cabana matte bronzer.

I’ve also been loving Maybelline’s new SuperStay Better Skin foundation. Influenster sent it to me to test out, and I really love the coverage it gave my skin. I can’t say for sure if it makes my skin better, but the finish on it is awesome.


I played a lot of Fallout Shelter in August. I’ve been a fan of the Fallout games for a long time, and having one at my fingertips was almost dangerous. I finally removed it so I could focus on other things, but I will be back.


This might be the best season of Mistresses yet, which makes me a little sad, since Alyssa Milano is no longer in it. But I’m loving watching this storyline unfold!! I’ve also been loving Chasing Life, even though it’s made me cry a lot the last few weeks. Tim and I are watching Another Period on Comedy Central together. It’s absolutely hilarious.


I’ve been a big fan of YouTuber Julia Nunes for years, and her most recent single does not disappoint. Do yourself a favor and listen to it.


I really enjoyed my Planner Obsession post, but I loved doing a collaboration with Meg and Jenn even more. We shared our favorite neutral makeup products — which you can never have enough of. Check out all three of our videos!

Humpday Confessions

I confess…
  • I’m a little too excited about next week in my planner. It’s Star Wars themed. Last week was mermaid themed and this week is pineapple. I think after awhile, I’ll do a flip through of my planner on the blog. Or YouTube maybe? We’ll see.
  • Our clean laundry from four days ago still isn’t folded. This is not abnormal. Don’t worry, I’ll toss it back in the dryer soon.
  • I ate Reese’s and popcorn for dinner a few days ago and I didn’t feel bad about it. The only thing that would have made it better: wine.
  • I feel a little, tiny bit sad about 1D taking a break. But I’m also really intrigued. I blame Kati Rose.
  • I tend to call companies who repeatedly send me spam so that I can ask a real person to take me off their email list. And when that “unsubscribe” link doesn’t work, the phone calls surprisingly do. I did it last week, and I haven’t gotten a single email from them since.
  • Around this time of year, I start to miss marching band a little bit. Where my band nerds at? It almost convinces me to go to a football game… Almost.
  • I bought a charging dock for my phone. It randomly made me excited. Now my phone will charge while I can watch long Snapchat stories hands-free. <– And that’s why I’m glad Snapchat removed the “hold to watch” function. Follow me: beccadorr.
  • I’m pretty sure I’m going to get into Shopkins. I bought a few blind bags last night, just for fun. I don’t know why. Do any of y’all collect them?
