Hi everyone and happy weekend! I am just sending out a friendly reminder that I would still love to have anyone and everyone on my blog coming up next month while I’ll be out of office. If you are interested in being featured on lifewithlilred for the day, then please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas for a fall or Halloween themed post! Thank you! ❤
Hello! In October, I will be out of town for about ten days, and would love some help maintaining the blog while I’m away. Lots of spooky fun can be had in October, from Halloween makeup posts to pro tips on pumpkin carving and it would be wonderful to be able to feature more of my friends on lifewithlilred. If you’re interested in creating a fall or Halloween post, or really anything you want, please shoot me an email at: email@example.com ! Thanks in advance! -Sarah
Hello! I was so touched this past week because, upon one of my coworker’s return home from a trip to Arizona, she surprised me with a lovely souvenir. I was absolutely tickled that she thought of me during her travels, and it was such a wonderful reminder of how thankful I am for her friendship. Check it out:
This beautiful teal lounger will make the perfect, breezy option for a variety of occasions. A lazy day at home, a pretty cover up at the pool, or belted with heels for a chic boho look. The color of my new dress makes me so happy, because it reminds me of my college color, Tri-C Teal! And, it makes me even happier to know that a beloved friend cares about me enough to pick me up a little something something while she’s away.
Surprises are an amazing way to show the ones that you love how much they mean to you. From a pop in visit to a homemade treat or a new dress, never pass up on the opportunity to show some love to your friends and family! ❤
How do you like to surprise your loved ones? What is the best surprise that you have ever received? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
HOLY MOLEY!!!! According to WordPress, I have had lifewithlilred up and running for four years as of the thirteenth of September and I had no idea! It feels like just yesterday that I started my blog as I prepared to start college and, now, here we are four years later and still going strong. I am so proud of my dedication to keeping my page afloat for four whole years. That’s almost a half a decade of fabulousness and I’m so thankful for having such a wonderful group of readers to share that with.
Blogging can sometimes be a thankless job, but the friends that I have made and the businesses that I’ve had the pleasure of working with make it all worthwhile. There is nothing like a blogiversary to give you a swift kick in the booty to keep up the good work and my motivation is sky high right now. Here’s to another four years of lifewithlilred and I’m looking forward to sharing it with all of you! Much love. -Sarah
Hello!! This past weekend, I was so excited for lifewithlilred to be nominated for its seventh Sunshine Blogger Award by my friend, Tiffy, at The Life Of Tiffy.

- Write a new list of 11 questions for your nominees

Q & A:
If you could not blog, what would you do? I guess if I was technologically challenged, I would journal. I kept a journal all throughout high school until the time I was twenty or so. If lifewithlilred didn’t exist, it would be back to the ol’ pen and paper.
Dream holiday destination and why? Paris! Because shopping, finally putting speaking French to good use, and getting lost in the city.
You’re on a desert island. What three things would you have with you? I feel like people normally go with the obvious things like a boat or a cell phone. So, I’m going to go with more minimal and say a lighter to start a fire, a pot to boil water, and a supply of vegetarian friendly food so I don’t have to hurt an animal.
Cats or dogs? Or neither? Dogs! Dogs, dogs, dogs. But, my sister and her boyfriend and my boyfriend both have cats and they’re not the worst thing ever. 😉
Favorite way for you to destress after a long day? Taking a bath with a Lush bath bomb and watching a movie before going to bed early.
Favorite thing to do on a first date? Coffee dates are always good!
The one product I could not live without is… A really good moisturizer. Skin care always comes first for me.
Who is your inspiration in life? Basically everyone who I choose to interact with inspires me in some way shape or form.
You find out your grandmother has a secret fortune, and you inherit a large sum of money. First thing you would do? Find good homes for all of the animals in shelters.
Who would you form a band with? 4 extra members max. Jack White, Marilyn Manson, and Bono.
Favorite Disney film, classic and modern? Beauty & The Beast and then I’m not really sure of the modern ones because I’ve never watched them.

Hello! Upon returning back to lifewithlilred after my hiatus from the flu, I saw that the adorable Hunida from Hunida’s Blog nominated my page for its ninth Mystery Blogger Award. This was such a sweet surprise, especially since I’ve been feeling so shitty! Hunida is such a doll and I love chit chatting with her. Her page is a real treat, too, so be sure to check it out! Now, let’s get on to the rules for this award:
- Thank whoever nominated you & include a link to their blog
- Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
- Answer the questions from the person who nominated you
- Nominate 5-10 bloggers
- Ask your nominees 5 questions of your own [with a choice of one weird or funny one]
- Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
- I used to say that I’d prefer to have the flu over a cold because usually the flu goes away more quickly, while a cold lingers on for forever. But, after my week of literal hell, I’ll take a cold on any day!
- The only bonus of being sick is that I do feel a little skinnier, so it’s never too late to get your bikini body. 😀 lololol
- Speaking of bikinis, why in SAM HILL did Victoria’s Secret stop selling them?! Now I have nowhere to buy a bikini even if I wanted to. I call bullshit.
Q & A:
My weird question: Do you eat ketchup with your eggs? It depends. If I’m eating just eggs and toast, then no. BUT, if I’m eating hashbrowns and eggs, then yes. Ketchup is a must for hashbrowns and if it gets on my eggs, then so be it. lol
What’s hanging up on the walls in your bedroom? In the bedroom I sleep in, AKA my sister’s old room before she moved out, there’s literally nothing on the walls. But, in my room with all of my stuff in it, I have pictures from magazines completely covering the walls. It looks awesome.
What do you keep on your nightstand every night? A bottle of water, my medicine to take in the morning, and my Kindle.
What is your favorite magazine to flip through? I’m a sucker for browsing through the celebrity rags like People and Us Weekly, but my favorite magazine to actually read is Rolling Stone.
Do you prefer gold or silver wedding bands for men? I never really thought about it, but silver.
