December Life Updates! 4

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I’ve been all over the place lately so I thought what better time than now to share some life updates! It’s been pretty frigid up here in the Northeast so I did my best to stay inside. As I write this i’m sitting on the floor in the middle of my bedroom trying to organize. I’ve been on a kick lately. I want to get rid of anything and everything I see that doesn’t have it’s own place. Clutter is driving me crazy. Have ya’ll read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up? I haven’t but, I kinda want to. I feel like it would really help me to purge all sorts of crap I don’t really need. What do you guys think of the book? Tell me what your favorite books form 2016 were, i’m in need of a new, good book.

December Life Updates:

// Reading

Halos by Kristen Heitzmann. I bought it by chance back when I was in high school and I’ve read it every December since. The back of the book says this “The halo she glimpsed around the sun was the first sign that this might be it – the place she was searching for. Filled with hope and promise, Alessi Moore pulls into Charity amidst her first real snowfall. Enraptured by the pure, serene beauty of the little town, she just knows something good is coming. But her almost heavenly impression is quickly dashed by an unforeseen loss. Left with nothing but the clothes on her back, Alessi is cast into the care of a reluctant party. Yet in a place where nothing could be wrong, darkness sometimes lurks.”

I was drawn in immediately and it takes place in December right around Christmas. It doesn’t feel like Christmas at all if I don’t read this book. Do any of you have books like that?

// Listening to

Football! It’s Sunday as i’m writing this and that means football day in my house. I’m impatiently waiting for the Giants v. Cowboys game on tonight. It’s going to be intense. 

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

// Drinking

Water with lemon until it’s an acceptable time to pour myself a glass of Baileys :-]. I’ve got a big tumbler that I fill up a few times a day to make sure i’m drinking enough. It’s soooooo dry here in the winter that my skin needs all the help it can get.  

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

// Eating

Christmas cookies. Guys, I cannot help myself. I keep bringing them into work to get them out of the house and I still eat tons. I’m really going to need to get back into a regular workout routine asap. Currently i’m eating a couple spritz cookies. LOVE. 

 

// Wearing

My Giants sweatshirt and some Lake George sweatpants. Ultimate comfort over here. On Sundays I rarely get dressed because I rarely go anywhere. It’s my admin day and therefore also pj day. 

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

// Feeling

Exhausted. If ya’ll don’t know already i’m basically a 95 year old woman on the inside. I didn’t get home until after midnight last night and my body is so used to getting up early that I was out of bed and drinking coffee by 7. Despite being exhausted I did have a great evening. I went out to a new restaurant with some friends, played table top shuffleboard (my 95 year old self loves her some shuffleboard) and then we went to a comedy show! 

I’m also feeling pretty dang excited for the holidays. I’ve been so busy lately and i’m loving it. Between buying presents, baking cookies, holiday parties and potlucks i’ll be busy the next couple weeks and I couldn’t be happier. 

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

// Working on 

Blog post ideas. You may have read my post a couple weeks ago about being in a rut, if not you can read it here, but i’m still kinda in the middle of it. I’m working on setting up an editorial calendar for 2017 so I won’t need to wait until the last minute to write a post. I’m also working on writing up my Dallas, TX recap so let me know if there’s anything specific you want to see for that! Keep your eyeballs peeled. 

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

// Smelling

I’m a huge sucker for Bath and Body Works candles and we have a fake tree so I’ve been burning my absolute favorite BBW candle, Fresh Balsam. Half the house smells like a Christmas tree and it’s fantastic. The other half of the house smells like my all time favorite candle ever. I only burn it around Christmas (not even sure if you can get it all year round) and it gets me in the mood for the holidays. The candle is Sparkling Angel from Yankee Candle. It’s a mix of apples, pine, berries and eucalyptus and something else magical. Trust me when I say you gotta have this candle. 

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

// Buying

Oh lawd. I went a little crazy and just bought myself a Cricut. The ultimate crafting tool. I’m SO EXCITED YA’LL it’s not even funny. I’ve been working on a DIY project for a Christmas gift and I bit off way more than I could chew. So, I headed to Michael’s over the weekend and picked up the Cricut Explore One. It was $50 off so I couldn’t resist. So far, so good. I can’t wait to do some projects with this thing. Sorry in advance if my Pinterest turns into Cricut central. 

December Life Updates // Being Leanna

// Thankful for

Everything! I’m so blessed that I have the expendable income to spend on gifts for my friends and family. I’m blessed to have healthy friends and family and i’m especially blessed to be able to enjoy the holidays with everyone that I love. What are you thankful for this time of year?

Your turn: What are you up to currently? How was your weekend? Let me know in the comments!

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas 11

How To Spend 24 Hours In San Antonio, Texas 

 

Hey ya’ll! Today i’m bringing you a step by step guide with everything you need to know about heading to San Antonio, Texas! From where to stay to where to eat and what to do! I hope you all enjoy! 

Step 1: Find an Amazing Hotel

My only requirement for booking a hotel in San Antonio was that it had to be on the river walk. We were only going to be spending one night at the hotel so I wanted it to be as centrally located as possible. I came across the Drury Inn & Suites (not to be confused with the Drury Plaza across the street) and was immediately impressed. The pictures on their website (and on Expedia where I ultimately booked the hotel) were fantastic. The hotel was right on the river walk, there was a complimentary breakfast and you could get a room with a balcony. Done and done.

I didn’t realize until we were checking in just how fantastic the hotel was. In addition to a complimentary breakfast we were handed over drink tickets for the 5:30 Kickback that they have. Oh, and it wasn’t just one drink ticket. It’s 3 complimentary drinks per person per night. WHAT. The kickback also includes food. Dinner food. Needless to say we saved a ton of money by eating dinner at the hotel. If you thought that was cool there is also free popcorn and soft drinks from 3-10pm. Hellooooo snack time. By the way, there’s also a roof top pool.  No. Big. Deal. 

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

Step 2: Figure out how you’ll get around

If you’re a smart cookie like I think you all are, you’ve booked a hotel on the river walk which means you can basically walk anywhere you’ll need to go. The river walk has all sorts of bridges and staircases to get you all over the place as the main part of the river walk is a big loop. 

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

// Just a couple warnings about the river walk: It doesn’t appear to be too wheelchair friendly. The hotels all have access to the river walk and they have elevators inside but I didn’t see a single elevator on the walk itself and only a handful of ramps. Additionally, there are many, many areas of the river walk that have no railings you you need to be careful with kids (or yourself after a few drinks). At night it’s pretty crowded so just be careful.

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

When you’re ready to wander outside of the river walk the best way we found to get around was to rent a bike. Just find the station nearest you and hop on! It’s $12 for 24 hours which we found was perfect. BCycle even has an app so you can easily map out where to drop your bike off while you explore. We chose to rent bikes while we went on a little Mission Tour and to get a broader view of the city without having to rent a car.

Step 3: Prioritize what you’d like to do

When you’ve only got 24 hours in a city you really need to prioritize what you what to see because unfortunately, you won’t get to do everything. Here’s a list of everything we did and why it should be on your list too. 

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

// The River Walk

This one is a no-brainer. It’s the top attraction in San Antonio and it’s a must see. Take a stroll around. Take as many pictures as you can. Kill some time and take a seat on a bench to do some people watching. I highly suggest doing a day time and a night time stroll as San Antonio turns magical as soon as dusk hits. Lights everywhere. If you’re interested in learning some history or have some people in your group who are a little less mobile there are a lot of options for boat tours.

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

// The Alamo & Mission Trail

Another no-brainer. Everyone has heard the phrase “remember the Alamo” and you’ll get to step inside and learn why you should remember it, for free! You’ll get to explore the former Mission (part of the San Antonio Missions mentioned below) turned fortress with some cool demonstrations by staff as well as periodic history talks that are all free. Definitely make sure you go first thing in the morning as this is a free, and very popular attraction. Plus, it’ll be a lot cooler in the morning.

From there, if you’re at all interested in history you really need to check out the Mission trail (or at least one other mission). We went to the Mission Concepción which is the oldest un-restored church in America. 

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

// Arts

If you’re into contemporary or modern art at all you’ve got to check this place out. The place is called Artplace and it’s a residency and guest curation place. Artists go there and stay and create their art and have it on display. It was such a fun place to pop into to get out of the hot sun before grabbing snacks and heading out of town.

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

//  Shopping

San Antonio has 9 shopping centers. Nine. There’s a few typical malls which are nice if the weather isn’t too great. The Shops at the River Center you can get to right off the river walk and its steps away from the Alamo. Market Square is far superior in my opinion with over 80 small shops and stalls. Any souvenir you could ever want is in this place. The best shopping center IMO?  La Villita. It’s a small shopping village with art galleries, unique gifts and restaurants. Everything you could want all wrapped up in an adorable village.

Step 4: Find Good Food & Drinks

This might be the most important part of any trip. Good food and drinks are insanely important and can really make or break a destination in my opinion. Because we were only in town for 24 hours we didn’t do any planning on where to eat and chose to just grab whatever when we were hungry. For us, that meant spending the night in and eating at our hotel so we could spend more time wandering around. The food was pretty decent and our 3 complimentary drinks (margaritas for me) made dinner at the hotel an easy win. When going anywhere don’t underestimate the hotel staff. They are full of amazing recommendations which is how we ended up at:

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

// Acenar 

Modern Tex Mex is how this restaurant is described and it was exactly we were craving upon arrival to San Antonio. Our hotel even had a coupon for us that got us a free appetizer. Talk about a win. I had chicken enchiladas and they were out of this world. Of course I had a delicious margarita to wash it down with so that helped. I had the best margaritas in my life in Texas. 

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

// Boudros Texas Bistro 

We stumbled across this place as we were walking down the river walk. If you’re looking for a place to eat outside with an amazing view and delicious food, this is the place. Still not convinced? They make fresh guac at your table. in front of you. It’s delicious. We went with appetizers and I could not recommend the place more. The prices were a bit steep for lunch for me, but, you’ve got to take the beautiful view into consideration. Plus, we got to meet an adorable duck family with ducklings. Swoon. 

How To Spend 24 Hours in San Antonio, Texas // Being Leanna

// The Esquire Tavern

Conveniently right across the river from our hotel was one of the coolest bars I’ve ever been to. I have never felt so un-cool in my life. The Esquire is the oldest bar on the river walk and it’s got a wooden bar top that’s 100 feet long. Yes, 100 feet and you’ll still have to fight for space at the bar. This place is that good.

And that folks, is how you spend the best 24 hours ever in San Antonio! Let me know if you have any other recommendations or suggestions in the comments below! I’d love to hear them.

How Sweet Eats // Stocking Stuffers & Beauty Lovers

Stocking stuffers are my favorite part about opening presents on Christmas. I could go the rest of my life without presents as long as I got a stocking. They are always so much fun! And Jessica has rounded up some amazing stocking stuffers that i’d love to get. I’m also loving her beauty gift guide this year. It’s the perfect combination of high and low end products where you’re sure to find something for everyone. When in doubt. Buy a beauty blender. They’re to die for.

Life With A View // Female Traveler Gift Guide

Jeannie hits the nail on the head with her gift ideas for the traveler in your life. I know i’d love all of these items.

Plus, that scratch off map is always a cute idea. 

Helene In Between // Girl On The Go Gift Guide & Gift Guide for Coffee Lovers

I’ll say it once and i’ll say it a million times, Helene is one of my favorite bloggers. Her voice is so unique and relate-able.

They’ve included something for everyone and a lot of the items they picked are super inexpensive! Perfect if you’re on a budget, or if you just don’t want to break the bank this holiday season. If for some reason you can’t find something you like in their gift guide, you’ll at least get a giggle out of their commentary when listing the items. Also, you should check out their podcast if you don’t already. It’s great.

10 Things I’m Thankful For – 2 Year Blogiversary! 15

10 Things I'm Thankful For // Being Leanna

Happy Blogiversary to Being Leanna! And Happy pre-Thanksgiving everyone! 

Wow, I can hardly believe its been two years since I started this little online journal of mine (it’s official on the 26th). You guys have been through all of my ups and downs these past couple years and i’m not sure where i’d be without you all. I’ve made some great friends through blogging and i’m so grateful for those relationships. Here’s my first post (so embarrassing!) and my 1 year Blogiversary post.

In keeping with the grateful theme i’m sharing 5 things that i’m thankful for as my blog turns 2! 

10 Things I’m Thankful for This Thanksgiving

// Friends and family

As always my little tribe of people are amazing. Not all of my friends really understand how much work goes into blogging but they all respect what I do as a hobby and that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside even if they don’t read it. Shout out to those that are reading this :-]

// PicMonkey

I use PicMonkey for almost every single picture that you all have seen on here the past 2 years. I love it. The editing features are so easy to use and there are so many design options! I personally pay for the Royale membership but you can certainly do without. My favorite part is how easily it works with Google Drive and I can open PicMonkey right from there. Easy Peasy.

// Blog friends

Since I’ve started blogging I’ve made so many connections with people. There are a few that I’ve become pretty close with and talk to regularly and it makes me so happy. 

// Snow boots

I have to wait for a bus at work and it gets pretty snowy up here in NY. Unfortunately, I’ve already needed to use them and they were fantastic! Nothing beats a cozy boot on a frigid day. I picked them up at the Bass outlet a few weeks ago and i’m obsessed. I like them better than the OG Bean Boot. 

// Blog Courses

I’m always trying to better my blog (as i’m sure all of you are, too!) and i’ve been trying to do as much as I can to make it great. I signed up for one of Helene’s courses FOREVER ago and only recently made a point to give it the ole college try and i’m loving it. Let me know what your favorite blog courses are!

// Amazon Prime

I’m about a bazillion years behind on the bandwagon but i’m hooked. I got the free 30 day trial recently (for some sneaky Christmas shopping) and it’s been great. The yearly price tag had me skeptical but I’m already hooked and I totally think the service is worth the money. Are you guys prime people? 

// My health

I mean, i’m healthy and that’s all I can really ask for. No colds so far this season. Minimal migraines all year and nothing else going on. I am forever thankful for my health. Now, if only I could take it a step further and get back into a workout routine.

// My money management skills

I have been able to treat myself to not just one but two vacations this year while still saving up for a house.I went to 5 European countries and Texas all while sticking to my budget. I even got to go on a long weekend trip to New Hampshire to be in one of my best friends’ wedding. Luckily for me I worked at a credit union for years and learned some great ways to budget my money. Everyone needs money management as a skill.

// Curling wands

I’ve been curling my hair lately and getting so many compliments. I used to be horrible at curling my hair until I got a wand. It’s so much easier to use and it works just as well as a curling iron. Plus, it makes my fine hair look like there’s a bit more volume to it which alone makes them worthwhile. Currently, I’ve got a NuMe brand wand but i’m looking for a new one. Suggestions would be fantastic.

// Notebooks

I am never without a notebook. I write down lists all day everyday and idk what i’d do without a notepad by my side. The notes app on my phone is my least used app, I hate it. Why? No idea. I think I just like physically writing my thoughts out. Plus, it’s satisfying to cross something off of a to-do list, is it not? I’ve been sitting on a coupon for Rifle Paper Co and i’m dying to use it for some holiday stationary. 

Now tell me, what are you all thankful for this Thanksgiving?

ColourPop First Impressions & Review 7

ColourPop First Impressions & Review // Being Leanna

Hello Friends!

I’ve been hearing about ColourPop cosmetics for a long time and had never tried anything out, until now! The temptation became too much and I had to dive in. ColourPop prices are incredibly affordable and I had been hearing so many good things from all the bloggers and YouTubers I watch so, I did some research,found some colors I wanted and placed an order. 

I grabbed 7 items in total: 3 lip colors, a highlight, a contour and two eyes hadows. I’ve had these for about a month now and was trying to think of an original idea for a post and came up with basically zilch. So, to try and be a bit unique instead of just reviewing these products i’m letting you know my first impression and my 3 week impression so you can see how some of my opinions changed drastically. You can’t always fall in love with something on the first try. So today i’m letting you know if it’s worth it to spend your hard earned moolah on ColourPop. 

ColourPop First Impressions & Review // Being Leanna

Ultra Matte Lip- Tulle

First impression: Love the application and texture. The formula is not too wet where it feels runny and not too thick where it’s hard to apply evenly. Very impressed for the $6 price tag. The color however? Wow, not for me.  The website description was “Not the douchey kind but a dusty mauve burgundy” and that sounded perfect. The teeny tiny swatch picture looked pretty good too so I took the dive. Didn’t work out. Too dark for my comfort but, i’ll keep it in case I decide to go really vampy one day. It’s a beautiful color just not for super fair skinned people. 

After 3 weeks: I can honestly say I’ve given it the ole college try but, I have yet to wear this out of the house. I’m still loving the formula but the color is not at all for me. This was my main reservation about buying from ColourPop. I don’t like buying makeup without trying it out first and so far I was 0-1. 

Worth it? The formula- heck yes, the color? heck no. 

ColourPop First Impressions & Review // Being Leanna

Ultra Matte Lip- Solow

First impression: Same great texture and application as Tulle and a 100% better color for me. Love Love Love. I wore this out of the house immediately after applying it and was pleasantly happy with the staying power.

After 3 weeks: Still rocking this all the time. The matte formula doesn’t dry out my lips too much and I only have to reapply once a day which is great. I’m incredibly impressed with this especially because it’s only $6. This redeemed the matte lip products for me so i’ll definitely be purchasing some more. I’ve got my eyes on a few of their holiday sets. 

Worth it? Heck yes. 

ColourPop First Impressions & Review // Being Leanna

Lippie Stix- Lumière

First Impression: Holy cannoli do I love this color. And the texture, and the packaging, and the ease of application (no mirror necessary!), and that all of their products are scentless. Love everything. 

After 3 weeks: Still love this and wear it the most often out of the 3 lip products I purchased. The creamy consistency is fantastic but, it doesn’t ever seem to set which would be fine if I never ate or drank anything. It comes off all over on my mugs and cups. For $5 though that doesn’t really bother me. ColourPop has this same color in a lip pencil that I definitely want to grab to test out that formula. Have you guys tried their lip pencils?

Worth it? Heck yes. 

ColourPop First Impressions & Review // Being Leanna

Sculpting Stix- Dove & Venice

First impression: These are going to be funnnnnn. Ohhhh, they are fun. Oh wow, this highlighter seems to not do much. This contour though is fantastic. The consistency in these sculpting stix are great, creamy without being too soft. Plus, they blended out incredibly well. Dove is the perfect contour shade for my fair skin. It’s a darker color but it’s not too brown, it’s got more of a grey undertone which helps to create a shadow instead of looking dirty. 

After 3 weeks: Venice I could do without. I like the consistency but the color is just not a highlight for me. It does look lovely under my eyes as a bit of a brightener but in no way is it a highlight. Dove, the contour shade, is incredible. I’ve used this every day in place of my normal bronzer and i’m obsessed. My contour is far from being on fleek (do the kids still use that term?) but it’s getting exponentially better. For $5 you can’t beat these. Plus, the sculpting stix can be bought in 12 different shades so you’re bound to find one that works for you. 

Worth it? Dove- heck yes. Venice- Heck no. 

ColourPop First Impressions & Review // Being Leanna

Eye Shadow- Muse

First impression: Looks like a penny, feels like a cloud. I’ve heard from practically everyone that tries ColourPop that the texture of their shadows is unique and it definitely is. The texture is incredibly lightweight and almost spongy like a mixture between a cream and a regular shadow. I really wanted to test out the longevity of this by itself so I didn’t use any primer and applied this all over my lid. It looks fantastic.

After 3 weeks: I’m liking it but i’m not in love with it. I love a metallic lid in the fall/winter especially this universally flattering copper color but the formula isn’t really my favorite. It looks nice for a couple hours and then disappears completely. I’ve been using Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray primer on my lids and that’s really helped to make this last longer but still not forever. I’ve honestly found that applying this with my fingers works the best but, i’m not convinced this is worth the $5. 

Worth it? Heck no, I want a shadow that lasts all day. 

ColourPop First Impressions & Review // Being Leanna

Eye Shadow- Bill

First Impression: Stupid name, great color. Bill is a sort of purple-y grey and I love it on my eyes. I’ve got green eyes and purple really looks great with them but I’m not a fan of BAM IN YOUR FACE purple eye shadow so this is great. Even if you don’t have green eyes this shade is great. It’s like an amped up neutral. Plus, the texture is so cool.

After 3 weeks: I wear this every day that I don’t wear Muse. I find that the matte shadow lasts way better than the metallic and sometimes I even use this as a base for  Muse. The staying power for the matte shade was so dramatically different from the metallic shade that i’ll be buying some more for sure. Let me know your favorites in the comments below!

Worth it? Heck yes. 

Overall Thoughts:

Depending on what you get I think the price points are definitely worth the trade off for not getting to try things out in person first. If you don’t like a color you’re only out about $6 which isn’t the end of the world. Plus, you can always give away the products you’ll never use. I’d say to do your research before buying for sure though. The swatch pictures on the ColourPop website aren’t that great so do some Googling or Pinterest searching for swatches of the colors you’re interested in. They’ll help greatly. 

Question of the day: How do you feel about ColourPop?
