Stop and Smell the Roses: Week 12

Happy Wednesday, lovelies!

Today I'm a little under the weather so please take no notice of my lack of enthusiasm on this weeks video. I promise I really am excited to be taking part in Mandy's link-up, and although I'm an epic smile failure in this Vlog, next week I'll make up for it times 8 billion. You'll grow to hate the sight of my teeth. Promise.
Seriously, how unflattering are these thumbnails? Does anyone else have this problem or am I the only one who pulls the most ridiculous faces? Ha!

Here's the link for the Yankee Candle Signature Reed Diffuser's that I talked about. They last for a good month and a half and they're quite strong (I don't recommend putting one in a really small room unless you're okay with having your head blown off as soon as you enter it). I place one in our kitchen and one in our bedroom and between those two our entire apartment smells yummy. I love them (so does my MIL - she's obsessed with the Vanilla Lime flavor) and I promise they're worth every penny. My favorite scent is the Black Cherry although Carl recently bought me the Country Lemonade candle and that smells good enough to eat too :) If you have a favorite Yankee Candle scent, please share! I'm always excited to try out new ones!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week! Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to watch all of your videos!
Lots of love, love, love,


  1. I could seriously just die you are so cute in this video with your tickles and your teddy bear!! But I am sad that you are sick today honey. You really have had a shit storm of a month so far! This means JUne is going to be amazing right?!!!

    And of course, there is another thing we have in common. I am IN LOVE with Yankee Candles and I have many favorite scents. Love Country Lemonade for summer, HOme for the HOlidays for Christmas, but my ALL TIME favorite scent is KItchen Spice. It's best for fall, but I burn it all year. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!

    Well thanks for another shout out my love!! It's so sweet of you to always think of me. I had every intention of repaying the favor in my blog this week and then I started rambling about future posts and SUMMER BREAK and I lost track. But really honey...thank you for your support. It means so much to me :-)

    Feel better doll!!!!

  2. I may be laughing hysterically..."I am clearly an indian giver". You CRACK me up! AHHHH, I love you! I had a "wooby" up until I got married and it looked much like your tickle. :) Unfortunately, it got so bad that it is in pieces and is no longer with us! I love that you went shopping in the baby section for a blanky! :)

  3. Hey, I can't watch your vlog at work but I can talk about Yankee candles! I just got into them a little while ago but my two favourites have been the New Zealand Wild Berry and Lime Mojito.... highly recommend both :)

  4. AHHHHH I seriously love you. I'm cracking up at the tickle and the indian giver and everything else! I still have my baby blanket, too! Mark was like ummmm WHAT IS THAT. I slept with it up until I got married. Can we also talk about your eye makeup?? AMAZING. PLEASE film a tutorial. PLEASE!! xoxo

  5. I hope you feel better soon, Amanda! Nina is right - your eye makeup is gorgeous! That vanilla reed diffuser sounds like it would smell fantastic. I love the smell of anything vanilla.

  6. Well, you look pretty amazing for being ill! Seriously, I wish I looked that good when I was sick!! I agree with the others, your eye make-up is gorgeous!! And could your skin be anymore flawless?! So glad you are starting to feel better & hope you make it back to school tomorrow!!

  7. I still sleep with my blankie. I have had it for almost 30 years. (30 in July) I will have to do a post about it to show it off. It looks nothing like yours though. It is still in good condition. I didn't sleep with it for like three years because after I moved to Georgia it was still packed. I recently found it when we moved again to our new house. Hope you are feeling better.

  8. I am late once again (I am always leave my comments on Friday evenings when I have more time) but I hope you are feeling better. I just love getting to watch your vlog each week! You will be happy to know that I have to have my Squish to sleep each night. When I was in college my momma gave me one of those squishy pillows full of the beads. For some reason I started sleeping with it and still do. I often find Michael stealing it from me, ha!


Leave me some love and make me smile!
