Liebster Award #18

Standard
Liebster Award #18

Hi everyone and happy Hump Day! Today, we are going to have some fun going over lifewithlilred’s eighteenth Liebster Award, which I was so kindly nominated for by my friend, Beth, over at World Of Beth. This beautiful gal runs a lovely page filled with stories of delicious food and amazing travel along with some really good notes on health and wellness. Beth’s page is a treat, so do be sure to check it out ASAFP! Now, let’s get on to the rules for this award:

The Rules:

  • Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award.
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you.
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination.
  • Give these blogs 11 questions to answer.

Q & A:

Who is your favorite Disney character? The Little Mermaid. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you could find out one mystery what would it be? I have no idea!

What is your favorite type of cake? All vanilla everything and I love cheesecake.

If you were Prime Minister what rule would you make? No comment. Spoken like a true person who doesn’t talk politics on their page, lol. :’D

What is your most prized possession? My pearls from my grandma.

Who is your favorite fictional character? Harry Potter!

If there were only two seasons which ones would you pick? Fall and spring. Both are not too hot and not too cold, which is ideal for me.

Do you think we are the only ones to exist in the universe? Nope. The universe is huge and there are many locations left on earth and in space that have yet to be explored. Who’s to say that there might not be some different form of life in our uncharted territories and galaxies?

What are your main goals right now? To settle into my new apartment comfortably.

If you could meet any famous person dead or alive who would it be? Marilyn Manson.

Sweet or Savory? Ooooooh…. Savory, I think!

Fun Facts:

  1. Since everyone seemed shocked when I revealed my height a few posts ago: Yes, I am only 5’1!
  2. I am always down to eat Taco Bell, Chipotle, or Moe’s.
  3. The last movie I saw in theaters was Jurassic World last month. It was pretty good!
  4. I hate the summer time and I can’t wait for fall weather to begin.
  5. I have been on a HUGE Madonna kick lately and I have no idea where this stemmed from.
  6. I have a slight addiction to shopping at TJMaxx, which I blame on my mom and grandma, because we always used to go there when I was little.
  7. Wine spritzers have been my drink of choice lately. So light and summery!
  8. I love taking baths and pampering myself. I can’t wait to go to Lush hopefully sooner than later so that I can restock all of my favorite goodies.
  9. I feel like I eat more pasta than what’s normal for the average human. Lol, carbs are my weakness.
  10. I usually spend my Sundays wearing no makeup and catching up on blogging or my shows on TLC. Guess which one I’m doing right now? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. My favorite summer treat is Honey flavored ice cream from Country Maid in Ohio. It is so delicious and sweet and I want to eat it constantly!

See Ya, July

See Ya, July

Hello everyone! Today is the last day of another wonderful month here on lifewithlilred and I just wanted to thank all of you for spending it with me. I also wanted to give all of you the heads up that a fall themed guest bloggers series is coming up soon. YOU KNOW WHY?! Well, obviously because I love all autumn everything. AND, because I’ll need some extra help around the blog when I move into my apartment at the end of August or early September!!

This is all very exciting and it also means that we’re going to be delving deeper into home decor and how to create your dream space on a budget! Here’s to another fun, fashion, and beauty filled month on lifewithlilred, and I’ll see you all in August! Much love. -Sarah

New Black & Opal Nails

New Black & Opal Nails

Hiii everyone and TGIF! After having my acrylics on since October of 2017, it was finally time to get a new full set. My talons were overgrown, lifting, and getting super uncomfortable. But, now, they are obscenely short for my liking, which is uncomfortable in a different way! I’m still getting used to typing with tiny talons, so hopefully they’ll start growing out to reach their full lengthy potential soon! Check it out:

Although it cost me a pretty penny to get my new nails, it was a necessary evil, because my old ones were breaking constantly and it was stupid annoying. For short nails – well, short by my standards, my nails look good. But, I definitely won’t be completely happy with them until they grow some extra length! Despite my complaints, it was sure nice to spend a morning at the salon after five weeks in between nail maintenance. I spent more than what I would have liked on this set, but for nails that won’t break and a morning to myself, it was so worth it!

What length do you prefer to keep your nails at? What color of nail polish do you have on right now? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Happy July!

Happy July!

Hi everyone and welcome to another month here on lifewithlilred! June flew by, so hopefully time will slow down so that we can all continue to enjoy sweet summertime. You can tune in again with me tomorrow for all of the latest and greatest but, in the meantime, I’ll just leave this here:

More Pacer Progress

Standard
More Pacer Progress

Hello everyone and happy weekend! My last Pacer pedometer update was written on May 19th with a step total around 600,000. That’s a pretty big number, so I wasn’t expecting a huge amount of progress to be made in twenty-four days. So, imagine my surprise when I checked my stats for this post and ended up adding an extra 275,000 to my step count! I couldn’t believe it either, but I’m so happy about it! Here are the rest of the stats for this month’s update:

  • Steps Taken: 874,580
  • Calories Burned: 21,546
  • Hours Active: 135
  • Miles Walked: 287

After seeing such great results, I found myself wondering just what I was doing to get myself there. And, it has a lot to do with the wonderful Metro Parks that Ohio has to offer. For the past few weeks, I have gone on nice, long hikes at least twice a week if the weather allows it. Dogsitting for my neighbor and walking her pups twice a day for a week didn’t hurt, either!

For the most part, I have been exceeding my goal of 10,000 steps per day and I’m really proud of that. It feels good being more active, and completing my goals almost daily like it’s nothing now makes me feel such a huge sense of accomplishment. I had no idea that downloading one simple app would work such wonders on my self esteem, but I am so thankful for it and am looking forward to reaching my goal of 1,000,000 steps soon. ๐Ÿ˜€

Who else uses a pedometer? How many steps do you walk or run per day? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
