AHS 1984 Season Premier Review

Hey everyone! – Fall is officially here and that means so are our favorite shows! I decided to add this section to the blog so we can chat and gossip about our theory’s and feelings together! Now, there will be SPOILERS so if you fall behind on episodes DON’T READ any new posts on Sundays!

Now that we’re on the same page, lets chat American Horror Story 1984! I love this show and have watched for many years now, and I gotta say, 1984 is right up my alley! I love 80’s slasher movies, the music, and the fashion, so it’s no surprise that I LOVED the season premier.

If you watched last Wednesday then you know this season is really based on the Jason movies ( you know where the camp counselors don’t watch the kids &…. well you know.) but it also has hints of real 80’s killers/or villains for lack of a better word. – The first episode introduced us to all the characters and their backgrounds, and since it’s based in LA, it’s a collective group of young individuals.

-We’ve also already witnessed a MURDER! That’s right, the strange young man they found on the side of the road was pinned to the back of the door ( classic move by the killer) yet wasn’t there when Brooke got everyone to investigate. NOW, this is what I want to chat about tonight… WHO do we think killed him?!

-Since we were informed that Mr. Jingles broke out of prison we assume right away it was him, HOWEVER, I don’t think so. My theory is that there is more to the story with Margaret and Mr. Jingles, and MARGARET killed the mystery kid! Think about it, he is around the same age as the other camp counselors (did he go up their for a job?) and was terrified when he found out he was at the camp. He also had wounds on him already when they accidentally hit him with their van.

Either way, I can’t wait for this upcoming Wednesday to find out more! Plus, this is AHS…there are always twists and turns!

-Let me know what you think! Leave a comment below!

Fourth Of July!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend filled with great food, good vibes, and nice weather!! – We kept it pretty simple this year, mostly because we  had to work the next day, but it was a great time!

It’s been busy over here with wedding planning & work, but I had to share some of my fourth of July looks! For some reason I wanted to be festive this year -LOL.

0dfac1b7-eabf-48ce-8169-d860d381799f -How cute is this t-shirt dress from The Pink Lily Boutique! If you don’t know about this online boutique I strongly suggest you check it out! So affordable and they have something for every occasion.

I like tying a jacket around my waist to make it more defined, especially since the dress is not tight to the body. This look is super casual, but you could also dress it up. I think that’s what I love about it! Plus it’s only $36 dollars!

-Next up is this two piece amazon find! I wasn’t sure when I purchased it if I was going to like it, but I ended up REALLY liking it! Since I’m short I was concerned about the high waist making me look odd. However, I have seen so many other bloggers (of all body types) with this same bathing suit & it looks great on all of them! It comes in a lot of other colors & its only $25 dollars! – STEAL

I’ve linked below – HOWEVER the blue/white t-shirt dress is sold out so I linked the same dress in a different color!

LashMe Review

-As a blogger it’s our job to find products, test them, and then relay the good with the bad. Sometimes that means making mistakes so you don’t have to!! So today I wanted to give you my review of LashMe growth serum.

It seems as though everyone wants longer, fuller lashes, so it’s no surprise this product on Amazon has a ton of reviews. It’s also an Amazon’s choice product. The price isn’t bad either, only $19.95 (on sale). So, I decided to give it a try and found that it works, but very slowly.

Let’s start with the good things about the product. First, it’s cruelty free. Which is a bonus for me. It’s made in the Unites States and is also 100% vegan. You can also use it on your eyebrows!

Now, some of the cons about the product. It takes weeks to see results, and up to 3 months for full results. You also have to apply it every night, which if you are anything like me, you forget. For example, I’ve been using LashMe for a month now & just started to see a difference.

Now, if the cons don’t seem that bad to you, I would say go for it. However, if you want instant results this is not the product for you. Which for me was the case. With events, social outings, and trips coming up, I didn’t give myself the time needed.

Lash extensions and buying fake lashes to apply can be expensive, so I would recommend LashMe for a more affordable option. Just make sure you follow the directions and recommended steps in order to see the results you want.

If you are interested or have been thinking about trying a product like this you can go to Amazon and use the code IFYOUSEEK20 for 20% off your order!!

Let me know what your results are if you do!!

3 Pieces Every Girl’s Closet Needs

-Lets talk about work attire. Deciding what to wear has been my biggest challenge lately. I always tend to go for comfort above all else. Sometimes though, I like to dress it up. Personally, I think you need to dress it up every once in awhile to boost your mood and confidence.

However, business casual can be tricky. You don’t want to be too casual and sometimes you don’t want to be all business. That’s why I have found that owning these three staple pieces are essential. -What are they you ask? A blazer, A high waisted skirt, A cute tank. You can dress each piece up or down, and together they can make a statement.

{  Blazer: Here  |  Tank: Here    |   Skirt: Here    }

I love this color tank so much I actually have this color in three other shirts I own! Plus, I love black so a pop of color is needed every now and then. Everything you see here is from Express. I was able to find the same blazer and skirt, however the tank is different.

-Each piece is sort of affordable – Lol. BUT keep in mind it can all be worn separately to make different outfits/looks. If you wanted a more casual look for a Friday you could replace the skirt with a nice pair of jeans & booties!

Spring is right around the corner so I’ll be sharing more skirts and dresses! I’ve yet to wear either with tennis shows, however I want to try it out! Maybe we can do it together and share our looks!

Always – Tara

Get To Know Me!

 

 

Hi! I’m Tara! I wanted to jump on here and properly introduce myself. I’ve noticed so many new faces, and a lot of you have been asking questions to get to know me better (which I love! ) so I figured I’d spill some details about myself to answer everyone’s questions. -Which to be honest, talking about myself feels kind of weird, haha.

I like sharing information about products, places, etc. & determining how much of my personal life to keep to myself or share is a new balancing experience for me. 🙂 So as I answer all your questions I’ll be an open book & I hope you enjoy!

Always, – Tara

About Yours Truly

How old are you? I’m 32

Do you have any siblings? Yes! I have an older sister. Where are all my youngest siblings at?!! -Lol. We are 8 1/2 years apart BUT you honestly wouldn’t know it! We have always been really close.

What other hobbies besides blogging do you have? Singing really loudly with headphones in! -Haha. I love music & it doesn’t matter what you put on, I will sing along. Growing up I was the one my friends would always go to for information like “what’s the name of this song?’ or “who is this singing”. To be honest, I’m kind of slipping now that I’m older, but that’s what Google is for, right?!  I also took vocal lessons as a teenager & into adulthood, so needless to say my fiancé gets front row seats when I clean the house!

What’s your real job? Currently I work in sales. To be more specific, I work in the insurance world. How I got into it, I really don’t know- Lol. I went to school first for broadcast/radio and went back for my bachelors in public relations. I’m still new to the sales gig, only been doing it for a year. Before that I bartended for 7 years!

How did you meet your fiancé & how long have you been together? – I met Ryan through mutual friends. His best friend is married to one of my besties that I used to bartend with. The first time we met in person was at a friends house for a scary movie night! ( I know, right?) It was awkward because we knew everyone was trying to hook us up, but it worked out! -Haha. We’ve been together for 5 years now and will be married this September!

You still haven’t shared your wedding location, where will it be? – Hmm. I think I still want  to keep it a secret! Even though I have given many hints on my insta stories! You’ll just have to keep your eyes out!

How long have you been blogging? What made you want to do it? – I have been blogging for 7 months now. It’s exciting and challenging! If you’ve been following me for awhile now, I’m sorry! You are seeing all the good with the bad, but hey that’s how we learn and grow!

I actually used to have my own website years ago for music/radio purposes. I knew I always wanted to be creative and share things with people, I just didn’t know where to start. So one day after thinking about creating my blog, I just did it!

How many dogs do you have? I have two! Henry is our 3 year old lab, and Beamer is our 9 year old corgi! If I could I would get another one!

Have you always lived in Michigan? Yes. I always said when I was younger I was moving out of state, but I think I like it here now, -lol.

Do you have any kids? No I do not. Might do a post on this topic.

Any tips for someone wanting to start a blog? I am still learning myself, but I will say you have to be YOURSELF! Don’t try and do what everyone else is doing, certain things don’t work for everyone. You also have to be a little patience. You won’t instantly get thousands of followers, likes, or comments. If you do great! but it always surprises me when people want instant gratification. Just keep working hard and you will reach your goals! Be positive!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why Do You Blog?

Lately, I have been getting a lot of questions on why I started my blog. The most common questions are, “What made you want to start a blog?” Or “What do you blog about?” So I decided to share with everyone on WHY I started mine and hopefully inspire others who have been thinking about doing it! (FYI: Just JUMP IN!)

I have always had the creative bug. I enjoy writing, planning any type of event or party, and sharing new things with others. As I got older, this part of me got lost in the shuffle but I realized pretty quickly I wasn’t happy without my creative space.

Work, school, relationships, and family can get busy. It becomes easy to push the things that make us happy or feel good to the side. I don’t know why this happens, but I know it happened to me. MAYBE we just get so wrapped up in pleasing others or hitting a work goal, that we loose sight of what WE need to keep us balanced.

So, one day about a year and a half ago I decided to start my Lifestyle Blog (in true procrastinator fashion I started it 6 months ago). Now, I didn’t start my blog because I thought my life was super exciting, I started it for the exact opposite! I got in a funk. All I did was work, eat, sleep, repeat. I needed to create a space that was fun and enjoyable for me (stress is a real thing) and in doing so, I realized that I was helping others who were feeling the same.

My advice is this; -If you want to start a blog do it! Some people won’t understand and that is perfectly fine. Write about what you know and like. You will be surprised by how many others find joy and inspiration from your post (you included). If you just like reading them that’s fine too!

-Sorry, if this post seems a little short, I just wanted to give a better idea of why IFYOUSEEKTARA was created! I am looking forward to sharing more with everyone!

I hope you have a fantastic Sunday!

Always,

Tara
