This week has been full of highs and lows. I got to do an amazing photo shoot, had dinner with some girlfriends, I’ve been staying motivated with my workouts (except for the past few days bc of my ear...), I started back with my juicing, and I’ve gotten lots of photography work done. The downs...this time of year is pretty tough for me- it’s just tough to stay positive and happy, I got an inner ear infection this week (so random), and the meds from my ear infection make me sooo drowsy, also I’ve kind of neglected this blog (ok, I very much neglected it) and there isn’t anything I can do about it. Also my house is a disaster and even though that’s a totally ridiculous thing to stress about, it stresses me out. I usually don’t complain about or mention my ‘problems’ bc they are severely minute and I and most others have been through much much worse, but this week has just gotten me down. Anyway, here’s to hoping my ear heals quick and next week is...better ❤️

PS: These photos were taken on Saturday night and that was the last time I put on real clothes. 

PS2: I just ate popcorn that apparently expired in 2016 πŸ™ˆ (I saw it on the bag after I was done). So there's my week in a nutshell :)

Let me just start off with talking about how weird the weather was this weekend. Sunday it was almost 70, sunny, and half my yard was covered in snow. I would literally be standing in spring then step into the shade and it was winter again. It was super nice to let the pups out, though. They loved being able to sniff and walk around outside in the warmth and (semi) dry ground. 

I'm so excited for a busy week ahead! Aside from the boring normal to-do list I have a couple photo sessions I'm doing- including a stylized photo shoot for a gorgeous girl and & I'm super excited about it!

I'm also attempting to make my first flower crown sooo wish me luck 🌸🌹🌷🌻🌼

Snow Much Fun

Get the look: Sweater, Nordstrom. Similar here & more colors here | Hat, Forever 21 & similar here | Scarf, Free People | Boots, Ugg | Denim, AE

Holy snow! What was supposed to be at most 4 hours of snow and a dusting, turned into TWELVE hours of snow and 8 inches! I couldn't believe it 😍 So obviously I grabbed my camera and took some photos :) Ugh, it's so magical. 

I must say though, I'm pretty excited to run some errands tomorrow haha. After being stuck at home for two days I need to get out. The gym is first on my list- I got in 20 miles (on the treadmill) last week and my goal is to never go under 18. I love my local gym because it's never busy when I go- I'm literally the only one in the cardio room and there are less than 5 or 6 other people in the weight room when I do those (I aim for at least 3 workouts a week using weights). I still incorporate BBG workouts in here and there (like these past couple of days when I wasn't able to leave my house!), but I find myself more motivated with what I'm doing and for that I am thankful. You definitely gotta find what works for you!

PS! I took these outfit pics with my tripod and I was prayin hard it wouldn't fall in the snow!...it didn't πŸ˜…

Charlotte Tilbury Review + A Favorite Lash Serum

Jan 12, 2018

charlotte tilbury, life and messy hair, xo samantha brooke, sam brooke photo, samantha brooke photography, nc photographer, greensboro photographer, nc blogger, samantha brooke, nordstrom beauty review, grandlelash md lash serum review

Perfume | Magic Cream | Wonder Glow | Lip liner in 'Pillow Talk' (all items gifted from Charlotte Tilbury)

Beauty talk! I've been using these items for a few weeks and lemme just say- love. The perfume smells classic and florally, so if you don't care for that kind of vintange sweet scent this may not be for you. The Magic Cream has been a life saver for my dry spots during our cold spell here in NC (think La Mer but creamier) and the lip liner in Pillow Talk is like my lip color only better...I know you know what I mean. The Wonder Glow though. My absolute favorite item- can be used under your makeup or on top, I use it under for a glow from within and on top as a highlight.

I shared about how I've been using this affordable eyelash serum in my Instagram stories yesterday and let me just tell you- I've been using it for less than a month and my lashes are already crazy improved. Can't wait to see what they'll look like at the end of the 12 weeks (which is when you are supposed to see real results). The serum is cruelty-free and costs about half of what most other lash serums cost, plus it doesn't irritate my eyes hollaaa.
