Rants + Raves and The 52 Project

Hey you! How was your weekend? Mine was great and flew by (the best ones do). I've got a huge post today, so let's get into it:

  • I'm very fortunate to work with BlogHer, which allows me to earn blogging income (thanks for your support on those posts!) and I was copying/pasting a post I had written for a deadline. I accidentally deleted my post and when I hit undo, nothing happened. It was still blank. I was pretty upset to have to rewrite the whole dang thing right before it was due. 
  • My weekend road trip! I had a wonderful,  relaxing weekend in North Carolina. I have a lot of friends who are Libras, like me, so we celebrated everyone's birthday early. 
  • The weather actually felt like autumn. It was delightful. I hiked around, listened to this stream right below the cabin, and soaked up the sunshine. Nights were spent around the fire, all cozy and warm, complete with s'mores. I think it was what I needed. 
  • I went apple picking, for the first time ever.  I'll have pics of that on here later in the week!
  • Almost 100% well! Finally.
  • I won the huge giveaway over at Krysten's Why Girls Are Weird blog. Made my week!
  • I've been featured some places around the web lately, and wanted to share, here!
What are your Rants + Raves of the week?

September in Review:
  • Fall is here! My fave season!
  • My fave post of the past month: DIY Fall Starbucks Body Scrubs
  • My fave decoration at my house this past month
  • Any easy fall mani--Revlon Moon Candy in Satellite
  • Apple picking (more on that later this week!)
  • The month of the Sickness That Never Ends 
  • First #psl of the year
  • Charlie, in deep thought
  • Me, finally feeling better!!
For every week in 2013, I tackle a new resolution. I share the results here.
I call it The 52 Project.

Well, September is almost over (fastest month of the year, it seemed to me) and I'm so disappointed in myself. Ugh. Read on:

  • Week 1: Say No...I have so many product reviews and blogging events (a good problem to have) that I'm having to turn them down for the time being. I was beginning to feel overwhelmed, since I was so sick and not able to do much of anything. Result: Success!
  • Weeks 2 & 3: No resolutions...too sick! Result: Fail
  • Week 4: Visit 10 new blogs each day....I've slacked off on visiting new blogs and I needed to remedy that. I ended up visiting around 20.  Result: Fail

But let's end on a positive note. I have giveaways for YOU!
