Schrodinger’s Cat

You know what I’ve been thinking about most this week? Schrodinger’s Cat. Science was always my least favorite subject in school. I felt like that part of my brain was never developed as well as it should have been…but this experiment has stuck with me for years and I’m usually reminded of it from time […]

Standing Still

Do you ever get that feeling like you just want to run away from it all? Even if only for a little bit? It doesn’t really matter where. It could be anywhere. Well…actually with all of the snow we’ve been getting here in Wisconsin, somewhere a little warmer and with a little less blizzard would […]

Comparison

As I flipped open the crisp and unmarked pages of my writing journal, hit “play” on my trusty Jim Brickman playlist on Spotify, and flicked on the lighter for my caramel cabernet scented candle I thought to myself, “Okay, Anna. Time to make some magic happen.” I had one of those movie moments where I […]

“Life is like a bookshelf,” my dad once said. And ever since that moment the phrase replayed inside my head. Books from your childhood and books from the past.

My Light Bulb Moment

I stood in the shower and a dozen thoughts darted in and out of my head. I kept landing back on just one. My blog. This little blog…  I wanted to start writing again, but I didn’t know how. Or if I even should. So much has changed since I stopped. Would people still want […]

What’s next?

In the past year I didn’t know if my road was going to lead to writing again. Sharing things that felt so deeply personal can honestly be a scary thing. What I DID know is that if I ever started up this blog again, it would be with this exact moment and this exact story. […]

Step away from the [insert personalized stressor here]

I had exactly three very different variations of this blog post written, and it initially started when things were going on all around the world that weighed heavily on my heart, and it was at a time that I felt like many were in the same boat. Many things have happened between then and now, but the message that I hope to convey still remains the same.

Current Favorite Beauty Products

Urban Decay's Afterglow Highlighter in Sin #UrbanDecay #afterglow #highlight www.almostherblog.com

In my never-ending quest to find my most loved body, hair, and makeup products I’ve struck some major gold lately with these current favorites of mine. I thought it was about time that I make another post about it since most of these things I have loved for months and months. They are tested by myself and also loved by myself. I am not sponsored in any way to talk about these products but just truly love them all! (Also one of my favorite things is on sale right now so the timing seemed perfect.)

Let’s Groove

It’s no secret that I take forever and a day to get ready for events. I love doing my makeup and that normally requires a fair amount of time if I want to do it the way I wish. Listening to music and dancing around in the bathroom is half of the reason I take […]
