Hi!! One of my Sunday evening traditions with my favorite cousin, Laura, who lives in Pittsburgh is watching 90 Day Fiance together. We love to watch the new episode and text the entire time, discussing the latest drama and making witty comments. If you watched the newest season on TLC, then you will know all about the craziness that was Colt, Larissa, and DEBBIE. Colt and Larissa were the couple that we all loved to hate and they provided Laura and I with endless hours of quality entertainment.
So, imagine my surprise when Laura emailed me a video of Colt, himself, talking directly to me! Lol, during Laura’s free time, she found a website where you can hire celebrities to make videos for you. She found Colt on the site and she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get him to congratulate me on my status as a new aunt. Check this shit out:
Guys… I really just can’t. As soon as Colt started saying my name I immediately texted Laura with “wtf is happening?” Lol and when I realized that he was talking to me the hysterical freaking out began. I laughed so hard I almost cried and I just had to share this beautiful shout out with all of you. Even if you don’t watch 90 Day Fiance, there is no denying the hilarity of this video and I cannot wait to return the favor to Laura with her own special hello from Coltee. 😀
Who else is a 90 Day Fiance fan? Which couple do you love to hate on that show? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Howdy! Okay, so you know how on WordPress you can see the referral links to how someone stumbled upon your blog? It’s super handy and I’m super thankful for it, because a certain special website has brought me TONS of new blog viewers. At the beginning of April, someone linked to lifewithlilred on a website called Nail Passion, which discusses all things real and fake nails.
As you all know, part of the signature Lil Red look is my long, talon acrylics that I am totally obsessed with. And, I guess other people are, too! I want to thank whomever it was that thought my nails were fierce enough to put on the Nail Passion page. It was most flattering and I am so appreciative of all of the new blog viewers that came my way because of it!!
Who else has a love for all things nail care? Do you wear acrylics or keep your nails natural? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Helloooo everyone and happy Tuesday! Today is a special day because it is my fellow Gemini darling’s 27th birthday! K.M., the author of the wonderful, fantastic, amazing blog, Ankhor You, is one of my literal favorite people on the planet. Not only is she immensely talented and a beautiful fashionista, but she is sweet, kind, and freaking hilarious. I am SO lucky to have such a lovely lady as a friend and it has been so much fun getting to know her better during our almost weekly FaceTime dates and frequent texting. I hope that all of you will join me in wishing K.M. a very happy birthday and I just know that 27 will be her best year yet! ❤
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hellooo everyone and happy Hump Day! A few weeks ago I applied for an interviewing position for families effected by developmental disabilities. I would get to chat with the family for a half hour or so and report my findings so that they can be provided with the best services possible for them. Well, yesterday I received an email that I was one of the fifty applicants accepted out of over five hundred for the position!!
Next weekend I’ll be making a two hour trek to Columbus for a day of paid training and then I can be on my merry way with the program. It promises to be a great opportunity and I’m so excited to get started! I was so happy to have heard back from the company because I had given up hope on earning a position with them! The timing couldn’t be better, either, considering my winter break from Tri-C starts next week! It looks like homegirl won’t have to scrounge around for a short lived retail job for my month off! 🙂
You’ll notice in the title of this post that Announcement was plural, so yes, I have one more cool happenstance to share with you guys. As you know if you follow lifewithlilred, I started working for Twistfire Media last week. Things are going fantastic as you might have read from my post about it! Someone pretty special to the company also happened to stumble upon the article, as well…The president of Twistfire!!
Yesterday when I was with Kyle, I checked my email and saw that I had a new message with the subject “Blog Post”. I opened the email and saw the sweetest memo from Twistfire’s very own president thanking me for my post and also giving a shout out as a fellow redhead. I was SO surprised and proud as I read through the email and it made me even happier to start working for a media company where the founders have a genuine interest in you and your work. Thanks again, Mr. President! (And if you’d like to know more about working for Twistfire Media, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
So there you have it, this week’s Exciting Announcements compliments of Lil Red! Who else has some exciting news to share? What was the best news that you’ve received this month? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Whatsup everyone and happy Hump Day! Ohmygod guys, homegirl just worked up a sweat. I just finished a timed exam that was an hour and a half long in one hour and twenty-eight minutes. I seriously feel like I’m going to have a heart attack!! But luckily that’s all over and now as I kick back with Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” playing on the ol’ iPod I can get my blog on. Today is Woman Crush Wednesday and after completing season three of Orange Is The New Black two days ago I need to give a #WCW shout out to the beautiful Miss Ruby Rose!
^^^ It seemed appropriate. Alright, here we go:
Dear Ruby Rose,
Welcome to the world of lifewithlilred, you gorgeous Australian goddess, you. Last time I did a #WCW post on here, it was for my sister…but that post was made out of love and not in the crush way which would be weird considering she’s my sister. However, you are my legitimate woman crush. I described my school girl swooning over you to my friends as “the way I could imagine a teenage boy would feel” and I am not mad about it for a second. You are simply stunning. You have a one million kilowatt smile, perfect skin, the coolest haircut ever, and a rockin bod. Can I get a hubba hubba and an amen? As soon as your character was introduced on #OITNB my heart basically fell into my butt and I couldn’t watch you play Stella without the worst case of puppy dog eyes ever. How you make prison khakis look fabulous is beyond me! You are flawless and I am so happy to present you with Lil Red’s #WCW shout out post! I LOVE YOU!!! ❤
^^^ In the words of Uncle Jesse, Full House style…Have mercy. #damn
So there you have it everyone, my #WCW for the week! If any of you are in a giving mood and feel like sharing this post, PLEASE DO IT! Maybe, by some mystical power Ruby will see this and then we can meet each other and get married and live happily ever after. It would be a dream come true! :’) I hope all of you are having a great day so far! Who is your Woman Crush Wednesday? How do you feel about season three of #OITNB? (My sister and I both loved it!) I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a fabulous Thursday! I made a little somethin somethin for all of my wonderful readers today, so I hope you all like it! I know that I made a map with the labels of all of your lovely locations before, but I just spent over an hour making a new and improved version of it, using push pins instead of post it notes. I finally caved and bought a three dollar pack of push pins at Target today to make this possible! Don’t thank me all at once! 😉 Anyways, here it is!
It took a lot of patience and only a few instances of pulling my hair out to find all of these locations, but it was so worth it!! I’ve been meaning to push pin all of the different countries for forever, and I don’t know what made me pick today to do it – I guess it just felt like a good day!! Don’t mind my awful hand writing, but here’s a note from yours truly as well!
As always, I appreciate all of you like no other! Stay beautiful, and for any questions or concerns, leave me a comment and let’s chat! Happy Thursday! -Sarah
Hey guys! I just wanted to say thank you for all of the support you’ve been giving lifewithlilred these past few months! I truly appreciate all of the likes, shares, comments, and views from all of you!!! I’ve been having so much fun writing all of my crazy thoughts on here and I’ve had just as much fun reading everything you have to say as well! You are all so talented!! I’m so thankful to have such a solid group of supporters who seem to actually care about what I have to say – it really does mean a lot! So as always all I ask of you to just keep on sharing, following, and reading and we’ll see just how far we can take this! I have some really great stuff coming up these next few days! It’s the season finale of American Horror Story: Freak Show tomorrow night so make sure you tune in with me for my review of that. And if you’re interested in spreading your musical horizons, I’ve been lucky enough to have a few local bands from Akron, Ohio ask me to do a review on my page! In other news with Lil Red, I start back up at school next week, but I promise to post as often as I can! Thanks for everything again and so much love to all of you!!!
I hope you’re all having a lovely day! Have you guys been sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions? What should I write about next? I’d love to hear from you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Love, love, love -Sarah
