Meowbox šŸ±

You spend all day everyday tracking that shipping number until that package arrives at your front door. You feel the excitement of opening the door and diving into your package. There is no greater feeling then getting a new fresh package in the mail.

If your a human and are anything like me, then you most likely share those same feelings. BUT, what about our non human friends? Shouldn’t they be able to share those same experiences as we do? Well, now they can!

Thanks to my favorite YouTuber, Casey Holmes, I have learned all about the Bark Box. This is a monthly subscription of treats and toys for your DOG! It was such a great feeling watching her dogs, Daisy and Rose, receive their boxes every month filled with all types of good stuff! Now, I don’t have a dog anymore (RIP Winter ā¤šŸ¶), but I do have a cat.

One day I decided to look up “bark box for cats” and I surprisingly came across the Meow Box. Now, the bark and the meow box are NOT affiliated, but they are just about the same thing. I didn’t even have to think about it, I signed my cat, Bella, up for a monthly Ā subscription quicker then I could even pull out my credit card.

It was a very easy process. I filled out both my and my cats information and then decided what type of subscription I wanted for her. You could do the monthly subscription or the every other month one. No matter what one you pick, you still get 4-6 items in each box as well as free shipping. Now, the plans do automatically renew, but you can cancel anytime and I believe you can even skip months if you wanted to. Similar to those shoedazzle and just fab and all those other types of human monthly subscriptions.

My cat is spoiled, so I picked the monthly one. It’s $22 a month, but I did google discount codes and ended up finding a 10% off code for my first month, so I ended up paying about $20.

Aside from the fact that my cat is going to be Ā receiving some great toys and healthy, organic treats, you will also be helping to feed other cats.

They have more information on their website, but they say that “for every meowbox you buy, we give a can of food (or monetary equivalent) to a shelter cat on your behalf”. How cool is that! On top of that they also give you a code so you can see where you helped out at!

My cat got her first meow box in today. Everything in it was so nicely put together and there are defiantly high-quality toys and treats. Now, it’s only our first box so far, but as of right now if you love your cat at much as I love mine, I would definitely recommend signing up!

“Oh My Goodness!”

So, since my last Blog was a little heavy I wanted to lighten things up with my #1 favorite Youtuber.

Now, I’m not too involved in Youtube, but within the last few years I have come across a few channels that have inspired me in one way or another. I originally had this blog as my top 3 favorites, but then decided to do just my #1. If you are interested in checking out my other two, they areĀ Jeanine Amapola andĀ Polina Beregova.

My NUMBER ONE girl!- Casey Holmes

To say the least I have a slight shopping addiction. I found this online boutique called NanaMacs. They do weekly live streams on Facebook showing and trying on all their new products. They are the root of my shopping addiction. Anyways, a few times in their live streams they have mentioned Youtube Star, Casey Holmes. Now, the firstĀ one or two times I did not pay much attention to this. Finally, after a little while I found myself asking “Who is this Casey Holmes chick”? So, I looked her up on Youtube and watched a few videos. I instantly was like “YES GIRL!”. Not going to lie, I have not watched many videos on her main channel. I am not a makeup freak so I don’t find any of that stuff to beĀ AS appealingĀ as general vlogs. Now, call me crazy, but I felt like I had ALOT of catching up to do. One day on my day off I decided I was going to binge watch her vlog channel, as If it was Netflix or something. At this point I have watched mostly all of her vlogs.

What I love about Casey is that she is REAL! It is very hard to find someone on Youtube who you feel like you can actually connect with. A lot of the other girls I have watched all think they are hot shit and become really fake, really fast. Not Casey though. For the most part she keeps her channel clean. She does not have to throw the F bomb off every few minutes or dress like she is going to a strip club every weekend. She has adultĀ tasks like everyone else and its just fun to watch. Who thought watching someone go grocery shopping or cleaning their house would be eventful? I find myself trying new things and buying certain stuff because of Casey.Ā  Not to mention the LOVE she has for her dogs! If you watch her vlogs and her interacting with her pups, then you will understand the whole “Oh my goodness”. That itself is one reason to watch her vlogs.

Also, I give this girl mad props for always going out in public with little to no makeup on and STILL looks amazing! I wish I can do that!

I can continue to go on and on, but then I might sound like a crazy obsessive stalker and who wants that? So, I’ll leave it at this. If you are looking for a down to earth Youtuber, then check out her channel. You will not be disappointed.Ā  BTW- She also did a collaboration with Smashbox for her Spotlight Highlighter Palette. I bought it in Pearl and it is amazing!

The Chase

“Don’t go chasing waterfalls.Ā Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all,Ā But I think you’re moving too fast.” Ā -TLC

90’s babies unite! We all know the song and we all secretly know all the words and louder the radio those rare times this song comes up. We loved the song, but did we know what it really meant at the time?

Growing up, I was always chasing something. Chasing the years, chasing the boys that I couldn’t have, chasing the people who I desperately wanted to be best friends with, chasing the school work and the good times. I was always looking forward to the next year. When I was 12 I COULD NOT wait to turn 13. When I was 13 I COULD not wait to turn 16, then 18, and then 21. I couldn’t wait to leave high school and go away to college (you will eventually hear all about that dramatic point in my life). When I was in college I could not wait to graduate and enter the “real world”. I couldn’t wait to move away, get my own place, buy my own car, make my own money, and do what I wanted to do whenever I wanted to do it.

Now that I am 24 with my own place, own car, own money, and my own freedom, I often find myself not chasing the future anymore. Matter of fact, I find myself chasing the PAST. Isn’t it funny how that works out?

Creating my own personal blog is something I have been trying to do for YEARS now. With life getting in the way every time, my blogs often got pushed to the side. I am a big believer in fate and as cliche as it sounds, I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. So, maybe this time is the right time to try this again!

WARNING**If you are looking for a blog that is about one specific topic, then this will not be the blog for you. BUT, if you are looking for something about everyday life and struggles, product reviews, monthly favorites, CATS, love, friendship, and whatever else I can think of, then you might want to stick around šŸ™‚

Where Is The Love?

With so much negative events happening throughout the world, you have to stop and wonder what is going to happen next? How is the next 5 years going to play out? Everyday there seems to be a new tragedy.

You don’t ever think that something bad is going to hit so close to home, until it does.

Today, June 8th, 2017 I took a sick day from work. I have not taken a day off in months. I went to bed with a migraine and woke up the same way. I hate taking sick days, but today my mind was already made up. I physically felt awful and at 7am I did not think that my day could get any worse, and then it did.

After finally getting out of bed I did my usual scroll through social media. I came across a story about someone committing a murder suicide not too far away from where I currently live. Of course I thought it was terrible, but I did not think too much of it. Then, I found out who the person was who committed such a horrible act.

I was in shock. *Names and details will not be mentioned in this blog.*

I went to school with the kid. I knew him since elementary school. I cannot go as far to say that we were friends, but everyone knew him. He was one of the nicest people you could meet. I remember seeing him around school hanging out with his few friends. I knew they were into computers and cartoons and video games. Everyone knew that.

What everyone did not know was the demons he was facing. I mean, do we ever? Do we ever just stop for a second and think about what the person next to us is going through? Do we ever care enough to take care of each other, even just a little bit?

This kid had a lot going through his head. He was lost, mentally and physically. He lived his life through fake cartoon characters that he created. He lived his life through social media pretending to be someone else.

Last night, he took the life of 3 of his coworkers and then himself. Why didn’t he reach out for help? Why did he have to drag others down with him? Why can’t we help each other to keep each other safe and stable? Why is this happing all over the world?

I have so many questions that may never get answered. Ā If you or someone you know is going through a hard time in life, get help! There are other ways to deal with your depression, confusion, anger, loneliness, and whatever else you may be feeling.

Lets stop hurting ourselves and others and start taking care of each other! This world we know today is going to shit too fast and we need to step up and do something. If only we knew where to begin…

To say the least, I thought my headache today was my biggest battle. There are people out there facing things that no one can ever imagine. I thought I had a bad day, boy was I wrong. Everyone is fighting their own battle.

RIP to all those lost too soon and their families who will never be the same**
