Liquid Patience

coffee and crushes

There is something fiercely precious about those first few moments of the morning for me. It’s peaceful and unspoiled time. It’s another promise of a fresh start, despite however chaotic the prior day ended. Most mornings start the same way for me: I get up after looking at my phone, admittedly longer than I should […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Aftermath of Failure

Pretty jewelry that Kellie made us!! #swolesisters #babygotracks

Admitting that you’ve failed is never an easy thing to do…It’s hard enough to admit it to ourselves, let alone announce it to others.

“If I’m gonna take a freezing cold shower in the pitch black I’m at least going to have a shower wine,” I resolved as I headed toward the kitchen with my huge LOVE marquee sign tucked underneath my arm. I set it down before I grabbed my electric wine opener and prayed that even though the […]

2016 Arnold Classic Fun

I was standing in line for the much coveted (and free) protein bars when I first knew something big was about to happen. Seven tall security guards in yellow shirts pushed their way through the crowd shouting, “MOVE to the side people!!! Everyone move!! You guys are not close enough together!! Move it!! MOVE IT!!” […]

Naked Smoky Valentine’s Day Look

Valentine's Day Smoky Look #nakedsmoky #valentinesday #smokyeye #valentinemakeup www.almostherblog.com

Before I jump into this I feel like I need to give a little background on this lovely little eyeshadow palette. I first purchased the Naked Smoky palette about 5 months ago at a sale price (and 5x the points at Ulta) with the intention of making this one of my weight loss goal prizes. Once I […]

Favorite ColourPop Ultra Mattes & Swatches

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches at almostherblog.com #Midi #Trap #Solow #Creeper #Zipper #ultramatte #colourpop

I’ll be the first one to admit that even though I consider myself a lover of makeup I find it SO hard to commit to a lipstick as much as I should. I really don’t like worrying if my lipstick rubbed off, left a ring, or is starting to make me look like I should join the […]
