Hello world!

Hey everybody, this is my first official blog post, EVER. I cannot believe that I am finally doing this! About a 4 years ago I got very into the beauty community on YouTube and decided that I, one day wanted to have my own beauty channel, so fast forward to about a year and a half ago; my fiance bought me my very first DSLR camera so I could get started on said channel. I then recorded, edited, and posted my very first and only video. It was a “December Favorites” haul. Not too long after I posted the video, my laptop fell off my bed and took a cup of water from my nightstand down with it (RIP MacBook Pro). So, my channel kind of got put on the back burner since then; until now, kind of.

I discovered the blogging community, or at least what it is these days, from Pinterest and some of the beauty bloggers and youtubers i watch/follow that have their own blogs as well. So since I don’t really have access to a computer at all times since mine died, I figured blogging would be perfect option for me!

I think this is a perfect time in my life to start this blog because SO many exciting things will be happening in my life over the next few years. If you read my about me page you would know that my fiance, Tony and I got engaged in May 2016 on my birthday! We are planning our wedding currently for October 2018, I figured this would be the perfect way to document our whole engagement process, from venue decisions, bridal party proposals and gifts, to bachelorette party ideas and wedding showers, to the big day! Also, we are in the process of moving out of our parents houses and finally being on our own! Documenting all of our trials and triumphs during these milestones is going to be so fun!

Finally, on April 16, 2017, I made the decision to change my life for the better! I joined Weight Watchers! My whole life I have always been “The big girl” or “the fat friend”, so on and so forth. Since being engaged and knowing that I have my engagement pictures and wedding coming up; knowing those pictures taken will be with me FOREVER, I wanted to make sure that I am happy with the girl I see in those pictures! While I am a body positivity advocate, there is always room for improvement and bettering your overall health! Since April 16, 2017 (about 5 1/2 weeks ago) I am officially down 12 pounds!

There are many many things I am planning for this blog, from beauty how to’s, reviews, & hacks to weight watchers & healthy recipes! So please stay tuned and I can’t wait to see what the future brings!

xoxo,

Marissa
