Hi everyone and happy Monday!! I hope that all of you had a fabulous and fun weekend. A somewhat well known Lil Red Fun Fact is that I have a straight up drug dealer phone. I have an old school, slide up, keyboard trap phone and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Seriously, the day that they quit making “normal” phones, all of you can call me on the landline.
Because of this (I think) charming quirk of mine, Facebook is really the only social media that I use. Instagram and Twitter seem to be such smartphone “on the go” mediums that I never really bothered with them. Lol, because let’s be real – NO ONE logs on to their laptop to use Twitter or Instagram. They just don’t. So, long story short, I put a lot of time into making my personal Facebook page and my page for lifewithlilred as accessible as possible because you’re never going to find me on SnapChat, Twitter, etc.
Although my blog FB page isn’t everything that I would like it to be yet, it would still mean a lot if you could mozey on over and give my page a like! I’ve been stuck in the four hundreds for a lifetime now and, needless to say, I’m over it. The links for my personal and blog FB page are as follows:
So, yeah. A like on my blog page would be awesome, but all of you are also more than welcome to follow me on my personal page if you can’t get enough Lil Red! And, of course, leave me a comment if you liked my page so I can return the favor and follow your blog! THANKS!!!!! Much love. -Sarah
Hi everyone and welcome to another week here on lifewithlilred! I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend. Mine was busy but good, thanks for asking! As you guys know, I recently worked a new pair of specs into my wardrobe so it only seems appropriate to post some actually satisfactory selfies in which I’m donning my new frames. Take a look and don’t mind the dog fur on my jacket too much:
I absolutely took these pictures while in my mom’s car and I regret nothing. However, I was getting pretty antsy because we were nearing the end of our drive back home from glasses shopping for her and I STILL couldn’t take a “good” picture. 1) I looked a hot mess in most of them and 2) my mom drives like a maniac so the bumpy ride was definitely not ideal for selfie taking! Luckily, we ended up stopped at a pretty lengthy red light so best believe your girl found her lighting Top Model style and posed and snapped away until the light turned green!
These pics definitely beat the duck face featured in one of my previous Monday Updates and I haven’t posted any new shots in a while so I figured this week’s Monday Update would be the perfect time to do so! I post 99% more pictures of me on my personal Facebook page so please don’t be afraid to follow me or shoot me a friend request so you can keep up to date on all of my statuses and picture posts! I’m not the best at updating my page for lifewithlilred but a like on there is always nice, too! ALSO, pretty please click my Twistfire ads so I get paid! 🙂
If you happen to visit my Facebook or blog this week, you’ll be seeing a lot of Influenster related posts because I was lucky enough to be selected to try out their #bloombox for testing purposes! I’m so excited to try out all of the new goodies that I received and I can’t wait to share my reviews on them. Definitely be on the lookout for Influenster posts and do check their website out because it’s a lot of fun – beauty blogger or not!
So there you have it, this week’s Monday Update: Let Me Take A Selfie Edition! Does anyone else use Influenster? What is one of the coolest products that they sent you to test? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hi everyone and happy Thursday! The month of April is a time when I get really excited about my upcoming birthday on June 7th. Three birthdays fall in succession in my family – my mom’s on March 22nd, followed by my dad’s on April 6th, and my sister’s on April 8th. So needless to say, birthday fever has got a hold on me like you couldn’t believe. I love birthdays. I love giving gifts to friends and family and of course, I. LOVE. PRESENTS!!!
True story, all my boyfriend had to do this weekend was mention that he ordered some of my birthday presents and it turned into forty-eight hours straight of poor Kyle having to listen to me ask twenty-one questions about my gifts. I hate surprises and I hate waiting so the fact that I have to wait over a whole month to see my birthday gifts killed me! If there’s one thing that soothes my birthday fever though, it’s making a list and checking it twice. Therefore, I created my Birthday Beauty Wish List to hang proudly on my refrigerator to give all of my family members a not so subtle hint on what to get me. Check it out:
Beautiful Sarah’s Birthday Wish List:
(^^^ Lol that’s how I labeled it!)
- Cash money
- Good but cheap cleansers
- Good but cheap moisturizers
- St. Ives tea tree, apricot, oatmeal, and pink mandarin and lemon scrubs
- The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost
- The Body Shop Brush on Radiance, Ref. #63691
- The Body Shop blushes, shades 05 Bubblegum and 01 Macaroon
- Covergirl mascaras in the darkest shade possible
- Covergirl Liquiline Blast eyeliner in the darkest shade possible
- Maybeline Dream Bouncy blush shade 05 Fresh Pink
- Wet n’ Wild eyebrow pencil shade 604A A Taupe Of The Mornin’
- Vidal Sassoon’s Runway Red hair dye
On my birthday and Christmas, I almost always ask for a restock of all of my must have beauty products. To me, there is nothing better than receiving a box full of beauty goodies because then I don’t have to buy my most loved products by myself! It’s a win/win because I know exactly what I want so it makes gift giving to yours truly an easy and relatively painless process!
For my birthday, I’d love to have a garden style party because I have a really big backyard. My family has badminton, croquet, and bocci ball set up and I feel like those are some of the perfect ingredients to having a super classy and fun birthday bash. I picture cute little appetizer food, teas, and mimosas for the menu as well as a big fruit salad for dessert. I also would love to have some type of water activity like water balloons or squirt guns in case it’s really hot out. Hopefully I have enough friends to make it a success. 😉
So there you have it, my Birthday Beauty Wish List! How would you throw a perfect garden party? What are some must haves for my possible birthday bash? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hey everyone and happy Tuesday! This is your friendly reminder post to show your favorite redhead some Facebook lovin! I have reached the 5,000 friend mark on the ol’ FB but that doesn’t mean you can’t give your girl a follow! A follow is pretty much like being friends with me without really being friends with me. You’ll still get to see all of my status updates and pictures on your newsfeed without having me on your friends list. I personally think that this is still a win/win for everyone!
You can reach out to me on my personal Facebook page and a like on my page for lifewithlilred wouldn’t hurt either! And as always, please help me get paid by clicking the ads from Twistfire Media on my personal Facebook! I have lots of fun articles, quizzes, and facts posted so check them out, have a laugh, and help me put some moolah in my bank! Once again, it’s a win/win! If you are interested in posting for Twistfire on your Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org!
❤ THANKS!!! ❤
Hi everyone and welcome to another week here on lifewithlilred! I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! As the title of this post may suggest, I’m still on the hunt for guest bloggers. I have the month of April covered with a wonderful post that’s in the works as we speak so now I have my sights set on May. Ideally, I’d like to have a guest post on the last two Sundays of the month but I’m not opposed to having more!
What I want is a team, so to speak, of reliable and talented bloggers that I can turn to for these next few months because they’re going to be insanely busy. I would much rather have posts from my blogging friends than no posts at all when I don’t have time to write them! I’m looking for everything from beauty and fashion gurus to fitness and health tips and everything in between. If this interests you then PLEASE email me at: email@example.com. If you comment on here but don’t send an email, I’m not going to hunt you down! (I sound like a teacher there. -_-)
Guest Bloggers near and far, I STILL Want You so don’t be afraid to get in touch if you are interested! How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone attend a concert or see a movie? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Heyyy everyone and happy Thursday! Great news! I finally reached the 5,000 friend mark on Facebook which I’m really excited about! BUT I could still use your help. It’s true that I can’t accept any more friend requests but I can still be followed (creepy). If you follow me on Facebook, you get all of the benefits of being my friend on there without technically being my friend. It’s still a win/win in my book! So be a pal and follow me and/or give my page for lifewithlilred a like! Doing both is preferable 😉 :
While you’re checking out my pages, you may notice some of the different ads and articles that I have posted. Those are all compliments of Twistfire Media and guess what? When you click on them, it helps me get paid! So please help your favorite redhead out by checking out those links. All of the articles and quizzes are super fun, too! And as always, if you’re interested in signing up for Twistfire, you can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
❤ THANKS!!! ❤
Hey everyone and TGIF! As you guys know, I really want to reach the 5,000 friends mark on Facebook and I’m about seventy friend requests away from doing so! So here’s a little friendly request from me for you guys to send a request my way! By doing so, you’ll get to see all of my thoughts, pics, and rants that didn’t make it on to lifewithlilred. It’s also another great way of keeping in touch with each other. My links are as follows:
While you’re checking my pages out, please make sure you click on the ads from Twistfire Media that I have posted because it helps me get paid! All of the articles are super fun and interesting so take a gander! In fact, take a few!

❤ THANKS!!!! ❤
PS: I have the pleasure of welcoming a fabulous guest blogger on lifewithlilred this Sunday so make sure you tune in for a very special new post! 🙂
Hi everyone and happy Tuesday! I was blown away by recently hitting my 2,000 followers mark here on lifewithlilred. Since I’ve had my page up and running for over a year now, I thought it would be fun to do a stats post and see just how much things have progressed on my little old blog. Let’s take a look:
- Posts: 562
- Comments: 1,553
- Followers: 2,105
- Categories: 32
- Tags: 2,335
- Countries: 150
- Views: 43,679
*** Note that I am prewriting this so these stats are slightly off!
If you would have told me when I first started blogging that after over a year I would have posted 562 times, I would have said that you’re crazy! But now, I feel strange if I don’t get to write at least a quick post every day! Once a week I take twenty or so minutes to plan out my posts for the week as well as ideas for days to come. I love coming up with new and exciting articles to write and it’s always so fun to me to see how you guys react to them.
I always find so much joy in looking at my stats and seeing how all of my hard work paid off. If you haven’t already, I can’t recommend making a post like this enough – or at least going through your accumulated stats to see how you’re doing. It felt awesome to look through these numbers and see how much they’ve grown since my very first blog post! For once, it was a trip down memory lane that was enjoyable to take!
So there you have it, Lifewithlilred By The Numbers! A short and sweet post that took ten minutes to write and that brought a smile to my face. So worth it. How long have you been blogging for? How many posts have you wrote? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
