Adorable Cuteness Overload Pt. 2

Hiii everyone! So you guys saw my dad’s surprise get well shrine for my mom yesterday – cute, right? Lol, well he added a new member to the sunshine crew and it was so funny that I just had to share it with you all:

In case you were wondering, yes, that is a cut out head of a monkey sending his well wishes. Wait, what? Haha, I guess we got some magazines from one of the wildlife programs that we donate to, and we got two copies of the monkey edition. Since we had two of a kind, my dad decided that it was okay to cut up the cover to place with the gnome, dog, and flowers.

Naturally, my mom did not want this decapitated monkey picture hanging out on our kitchen table, so my dad retired him to his new location after only one short hour with the sunshine crew:

I just really can’t even, and it was so funny in the “what the hell” type of way that it only felt necessary to share with each and every one of you. 😀

Does anyone else have weird mascots hanging out in their home? What is the weirdest thing that you or a friend owns? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Creep

Standard
Creep

Okay, let’s all be honest here. We’ve all social media creeped before. Whether it’s on your ex’s new girlfriend or one of your coworkers, social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have given us free range to snoop to our heart’s content. My girlfriends and I have had many a conversation about our in depth creeping sessions and it always provides us with a laugh fest or heart wrenching girl talks about our findings. But what happens when you feel a little too creeped out by someone’s Facebook creeping?

So, on Wednesday my dad and I went to Dairy Queen to get an ice cream cake for my mom’s birthday. The same Dairy Queen that my best friend worked at well over a year ago. It’s not somewhere that I actively frequent except for the handful of times that I’ve stopped in to see her or went with her to pick up her paychecks. And by a handful of times, I mean like three. My dad and I chose the cake that we wanted and probably exchanged a total of twenty words with the employee who was helping us.

Frankly, I was not trying to socialize with anyone because I was totally bumming it that day. Leggings, hoodie, no makeup, and a beanie was my outfit of choice. All I wanted was to get the cake and go and within five minutes we were in and out. BUT, despite my disheveled outer appearance, I could feel the employee looking at me just a little too closely for my liking. Especially since I was basically in my pajamas. Whatever. We left and I didn’t think anything of it until twenty minutes ago.

Today while I was hanging out, I saw that I had a notification from Facebook messenger and it was a message request. Normally, I don’t look through those but I knew the red message circle wouldn’t disappear if I didn’t so I took a peek. And, guess who it was from? None other than the Dairy Queen employee from two days ago with a message reading “I hope you enjoyed the cake. Facebook creeping at its finest.” Ugh. What?

Don’t get me wrong. I am well aware that I am an easily recognizable person. With bright red hair, pasty pale skin, and five nose piercings it’s hard not to be. But really? You’re going to use the five words that I exchanged with you at your place of employment as an excuse to hunt me down on Facebook and shoot me a message? That’s just so unprofessional, inappropriate, and (to be frank) weird in my opinion.

Believe me. I am used to the odd messages, emails, and comments. And I get that I am recognizable enough and somewhat relevant enough on social media to get unwanted attention in my inboxes. But, I don’t know. There was something about this experience that made me feel weird because the person is in such close proximity to me and because our exchange was so incredibly brief.

I’ve never had anyone actively try and find me on social media like that and I didn’t like it. Am I looking too much into this? Probably. But I still have such an initial grimy feeling that I just had to blog it out. I am not trying to put anyone “on blast”, I’m just trying to not feel weird about this! Is it ever appropriate to try and find someone you met while on the job? How would you react to this situation? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

It’s In The Bag – Lost & Found Edition

It’s In The Bag – Lost & Found Edition

Hellooo everyone and TGIF! Welcome to a brand new month here on lifewithlilred. A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend told me that a lady left her makeup bag at his restaurant and that she never came back for it. Apparently, the bag has been sitting in the restaurant’s Lost & Found ever since until my beau came up with an idea. He told me that he’s going to bring me the makeup bag because he thought it would make a great blog post to empty it and see what’s inside. I thought that this was the sweetest thing ever so after I was reassured that the lady wasn’t going to return for her bag, I told him to bring it on over. This post is admittedly kind of strange considering that I’m rummaging through a total stranger’s makeup bag. But it’s all in good fun, so let’s take a peek at what lies inside:

^^^ Lots of good stuff!

My boyfriend, my sister, and I all took a look through the bag and I must say that my sis and I were very impressed with the contents. Lipsticks and chunky balms. Hand creams and sanitizers as well as the cutest pocket mirror ever! Kristen and I were both ogling over the colors of the lipsticks that the Lost & Found bag contained and had to laugh because I actually have one of the Covergirl matte balms in the bag. So obviously, this little Ipsy makeup purse was meant to fall into my hands.

So the real question is this: Now that I have a bag full of a stranger’s makeup – what exactly do I do with it? I’m totally fine with getting some use out of the creams, sanitizers, and the pocket mirror but what about the rest? What kills me is that some of the lipsticks literally look brand new so I hate to throw them away. I feel bad that this lady is out of her must have makeups for when she’s on the go and the last thing that I want to do is let them go to waste now that they’re in my possession.

What do I do? What should I do? I toyed around with the idea of just slicing off the used parts of the next to new lipsticks but is that even sanitary? Lol, my boyfriend and I never discussed what we would do after the makeup bag was in my hands and some snaps were grabbed of the products inside! So until I figure out this dilemma, I guess that I’ll be stuck with the Lost & Found makeup bag for a little while longer!

So there you have it, the latest segment of It’s In The Bag – Lost & Found Edition! What would you do if you were now stuck with a bag full of a stranger’s makeup? Is there any way to sanitize makeup after it has been used? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Woman Crush Wednesday: Helena Bonham Carter Edition

Helloooo everyone and happy Hump Day! Welcome to a new edition of Woman Crush Wednesday – Helena Bonham Carter style! I am such a big fan of the stunning Miss Helena…and so is my dad, for that matter – but that’s neither here nor there. ANYWAYS, enjoy this video of one of my favorite Sweeney Todd songs starring our lovely vixen herself and then let’s discuss:

Dear Helena Bonham Carter,

Ohhhhh sweet sweet Helena, I just adore you. You truly are such a phenomenal actress and it is such a joy to watch you light up the big screen. No matter what your role is, you always seem to steal the show. What I find so inspiring about you is that you never shy away from the weird and macabre but you embrace it with so much gusto that it makes “normal” people look like the weird ones. You’re an oddball, and I mean that in the most loving way possible. All of your cute little quirks are so endearing though because they are so relateable to so many people, myself included. You are unique and proud and it makes me want to scream Sweeney Todd lyrics at the top of my lungs from my bedroom window. Not only are you insanely talented and an amazing role model, but can we please talk about your staggering good looks? Hubba hubba, woman. Your off screen looks are killer and no matter what you look like in movies I always find myself weirdly attracted to you. Btw, I’m sorry to hear about your break up with your long time love, Tim Burton, but on the bright side – that means that you and I can get married! Hurray! I LOVE YOU!!!!

^^^ Oh. My. God. I am so helplessly obsessed with that black and white picture. GORGEOUS!

So there you have it, this weeks Woman Crush Wednesday: Helena Bonham Carter Edition. Who is everyone’s #WCW this week? What is your favorite character that my woman crush has played? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Weirdest/Best Dream EVER!

Standard
Weirdest/Best Dream EVER!

Omggg guys. I had the most insane, weird, ridiculously amazing dream last night!! It was one of those dreams that instantly gave me the thoughts “wtf?” and “I wish that it was real” as soon as I woke up. I need to talk about it before I forget it!! I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I’ve read the books and seen the movies multiple times and I like to think that I can answer almost every HP trivia question thrown at me. With that in mind, you’ll understand how devastating it was for me to wake up from a dream that revolved around the adorable red headed Weasley twins, Fred and George. In my dream I think I was at some type of family get together – at least that’s the vibe I was getting considering I remember seeing my cousins and aunt and uncles in the dream world. Family get togethers usually invoke the image of sunshine, picnics, or a lovely welcoming home…But in my dream we were in some dark, musty, super janky building – and oh yeah, the Weasley twins just happened to be there. I remember doing a double take when I first spotted the twins in the dilapidated location and doing the classic “is that who I think it is?” to whomever was standing by me. And the thing was, it wasn’t even like it was the actors who play Fred and George….it was the ACTUAL Fred and George fresh out of Harry Potter. Be still my heart!!! So after I got confirmation that it was indeed the twin dynamos, my dream self worked up the courage to go talk to them. When I approached the boys, they were huddled over a piece of paper and writing feverishly. I asked them what they were doing and they both flashed me their classic cheeky grin and held out the paper. On the paper was a list of every single person who was at the get together with comments written beside all of the attendees. It was seriously like the ghetto version of the “Burn Book” from Mean Girls. I can recall my eyes scanning the page and trying to decipher the shitty hand writing. I could make out comments like “fat”, “tall glass of water”, and “lose some weight”. #RUDE!!! And then finally I found my name on the seemingly endless list of guests. The handwriting for my name and the comments was clear and perfect – and I swear the lighting in the dank and dimly lit room got better. By my name was the comment “most beautiful girl in the entire world” and I seriously freaked out. My heart was swooning, I was blushing like a thirteen year old, and I was totally smitten….and naturally I WOKE UP! 😦 As soon as my alarm went off I was SO pissed, because I was so aware of the amazing dream I had just had and I woke up right when things were getting interesting! I sincerely hope that my Fred and George dream comes back to me again tonight, because I’m very curious to see how it ends!!

^^^ I LOVE POTTER PUPPET PALS!

Have you guys had any crazy dreams lately? What do you think will happen next in my Fred and George dream? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Happy Saturday. -Sarah
