My So-Called Beautiful Life: Kristin Catches Up

cruisHello beautifuls,

It’s been a while since I gave you a peek into my life since Squashing the Shopping Bug, and I must say that I really do miss baring my soul to you guys. I’ve always toyed with the idea of writing a personal blog (read: I’ve started one and I couldn’t keep it up), but that is so much work on top of running BX. So I figured, why not write more personal blog posts on BX?! You guys totally want to hear about my life. Right?

Here’s the rundown on my life post-Squashing the Shopping Bug:

  • I graduated
  • was unemployed
  • had a few breakdowns
  • visited Anne
  • got an internship
  • went on a cruise with the fam

cruise 3

  • came back to work
  • had a few breakdowns
  • searched low and high for the perfect new apartment
  • had a few breakdowns
  • found said apartment
  • focused my obsessions on scouring the Internet for adorable yet useless house items
  • had a few breakdowns
  • continued to bust my butt at work

cruise 2That’s a lot of things for just two and a half months. I would also like to add that I don’t normally have nervous breakdowns that often (I swear I’m stable), I’ve just been uber stressed about settling into a more permanent life and trying to avoid being poor, homeless and hungry. Thanks Anne for listening to each and every breakdown. 🙂

At this point you’re probably about to X out of this post because it has nothing to do with beauty. But I promise you—from now on, I will be updating you about the beauty, fashion and other related odds and ends that are going on in my life. Maybe one day it will be an outfit post, another day some photos of my never-ending search for cute apartment “necessities.” Who knows — maybe one day I’ll actually master iMovie and post a video.
