The Transition Has Begun

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I have been doing some behind the scenes work. There are new pages, categories, menus, and a new theme. Within the next few weeks I’ll begin the transition to hosting my own website, and I’ll be working out all the kinks and details. Any feedback on the way the site currently looks is much appreciated, & once I get everything up & running I have so much in store for the website. I appreciate any and all comments and concerns, this is a very new process for me, thanks for being patient.

later lovebugs,


Well, my charger for my laptop burned out on me. & my laptop is dead, like always. That’s probably why my charger bailed on me. I overused the poor thing. So I’m forced to take a hiatus because in my personal opinion, I don’t deliver quality content via my phone. The app and mobile website just don’t give me the same experience. A charger is number one on my to “need to buy” list, so hopefully my hiatus won’t last too long.

Later lovebugs, I’ll try to return with something fabulous to make up for my absence.

I Caved

Since moving out 10 months ago and being on my own and paying my own bills, I lost the luxury of spending money on myself. I have to budget like crazy to stay on top of things, so I’ve cut back on a lot of things. The number one being my complete obsession with Bath & Body Works. I literally have over 50 different lotions and perfumes under my bathroom cabinet. When I was living at home, I spent no less than $100 a month at BBW. I was completely addicted. I get the emails with all the discount codes, and first access to the newest fragrance, and then I get actual coupons in the mail as well. Continue reading I Caved

A Letter For You

My dream reader, I’ve never put much thought into who you actually are, or could be, I just know that you get me. & isn’t that what we all want out of life? For someone to understand us and who we are, and the things we go through. It’s not so much that you agree with everything I write, but you always understand where I’m coming from. & that’s so important to me. You are so important to me. Continue reading A Letter For You

I’m Re-Branding.

BeautyMarks LogoI’m doing the Blogging 101 course, and today’s assignment was to create a title and a tagline. Being that I have been blogging for about a year, I already had one. But I’ve been wanting to re-brand and transition my blog into something more than just my ramblings.

So what better opportunity than right now. For all my current followers, I’m not changing anything too drastically. A lot of my posts will be of the same type as usual, but I want to add more to the blog as well. In the next coming weeks I’ll be adding in different sections, pages, and categories to the blog and possibly a new theme. Continue reading I’m Re-Branding.

What’s A Deal Breaker

I had a pretty heavy conversation the other night about deal breakers in a relationship. How do you know if certain quirks, or someone’s lifestyle is something you could handle in a long-term relationship? Where do you draw the line between being picky, shallow, or downright unrealistic? I had so much to say during the conversation, but it just got all jumbled up and I wasn’t able to portray my thoughts and feelings as elegantly as I would have liked. Since I’m a much better writer than I am a speaker, I’m going to take the time to ramble now. ;P Continue reading What’s A Deal Breaker

Why The Good Guy Never Wins

I see so many posts from men on social media complaining about how being the “good guy” fails, because women like to chase after ass holes. First & foremost, the “good guy” loses because he calls himself a good guy. Why not just be a regular guy, be yourself. Most of the time, women aren’t turning you down for being a good guy, but a lot of so called good guys feel entitled to women just because they’re “good.”

Announcing the fact that you’re a good guy automatically makes everything you do less appealing. I don’t feel special anymore, because all your kind gestures are just routine. Everything you do is a repeat of what you did for the last girl, because you’re just such a good guy. It feels like you’re treating me like just another girl, because that’s what I am to you, just another girl that you’ll do nice things for until the next girl comes along. Then you’ll do nice things for her too.

In my personal experience, a lot of these good guys are pushovers. Loving all the things I love, and doing everything I want you to do is not considered being good to me. I could never date a pushover. Have a backbone, put your foot down. If I can walk all over you, I absolutely cannot date you. Find a happy medium, you can be firm without being mean.

& last but not least, sometimes the good guy doesn’t win just because the woman genuinely does not like you. Men need to get off their high horse and stop thinking that every female that’s ever rejected you did it because you were too nice. Some people just don’t like you. Live with it, that’s life.

So it’s not the fact that women like ass holes, but anything too easy is never worth it. So stop trying to be the good guy, stop being bitter about “bad boys,” and just be a man. Women will love that shit.
