These Are My Confessions


First of all, I wouldn't mind if these flowers magically showed up at my house.  Bodega roses - so gorgeous.

Today is good ol' confessional Wednesday!  Does anyone still host this link up?  Confession posts are some of my favorite to read and write, and it would be a shame if the blogging world lost these gems.  I know Kathy from Vodka & Soda retired from hosting and of course with Leslie being gone, so I've been tossing around the idea of hosting a weekly/monthly edition?  Let me know what you guys think.

I confess that I knew buying brownie batter Oreos was a terrible idea, but did it anyway.  I can't stop eating these things - they are dangerously delish.  Do yourself and your waistline a favor and just don't buy any ;)

I confess that I desperately need new makeup brushes.  I couldn't tell you the last time I bought one - maybe three years ago?  And let's not even get into how I don't take care of them by never, ever washing them.  But anyway, it's so overwhelming trying to know which ones to buy.  I've really only ever owned Real Technique and Bobbi Brown ones - what are your favorites?

I confess that I am super excited that BEN H. is the new Bachelor!  They really did scare me with that Nick stunt, but thankfully ABC is smarter than that because n-o o-n-e would watch.  I think Ben is going to be great, he seems so sweet!  I confess that I'm also surprised that Kaitlyn and Shawn are still together.

I confess that I hate olives.  Despite yesterdays pasta salad being full of them, I really only add them in for my husband!

I confess that this bracelet that I had been wanting something fierce from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is finally back in stock.  Ladies with small wrists - this one is for you.  I love the tan color for fall, it'll go with everything.

I confess that the word 'fall' makes me shudder (summer, never leave me), but I did stock up on my fall soaps from Bath & Body Works this week.  They were on sale so you can bet I bought one of pumpkin everything!  I refuse to do anything else fall related until Tuesday, September 8th though.  And then it's on :)

Happy hump day!

  4. I'm so terrible at taking care of my makeup brushes too and don't even get my started on buying new ones. There are just soo many other things I would like to spend my money on, thank you. You should totally start a monthly confession link-up! If you want a co-host, let me know :)

  6. So I bought these Eco-tools brushes at Walgreens last year because I forgot allllllllllll my make up, and they are AWESOME. I love them as much as my BB and Laura Mercier brushes for sure!! PS... Those flowers? Bring it.

  7. I would definitely love to have those flowers right now! so pretty! It's funny because I've never been a flower person, but I have to admit that getting a bouquet of flowers every now and then makes me happy. Haha. I can't remember the last time I cleaned my makeup brushes...that is kind of gross...oops.

  8. The word fall makes me shudder too, and it's super refreshing to find a fellow blogger who's not super excited about fall. To me fall means winter is coming and summer is over *wah*! But I do love me some fall decor and candles! And how did I miss the Bachelor announcement?! Yay for Ben H!

    As for makeup brushes, most of mine are Sephora brand and I love them all. You can catch them in their sale section on their site from time to time which makes them much more affordable ;-)

  9. I'm not ready for fall either! Trying deperately to hold on to summer (but stocking up on fall clothes if that makes any sense at all...) And loving that bracelet!

  10. I'd love a confession linkup. Would you believe I had been toying with the idea as well. I miss confessions, so much fun to write and to read, right?

    Fall makes me shudder too, summer never end.

  11. I despise olives! Yuck! Can't wait to watch Ben be the new bachelor!

  12. I think a monthly confessional would be super fun! Not sure if I could commit to a weekly thing...Committing to anything for me right now is kind of iffy, lol! I could use some more makeup brushes too. Mine are Sephora brand, and they are great, but they are also several years old, and I don't have a couple brushes that I'd really like to have.

    Super excited about Ben H being the next Bachelor. He seems very sweet and genuine.

    And girl. Bring on September 8. I am SO over 95 degree days, sweating, and having everything melt in 2.5 seconds!

  13. I have a couple Sigma brushes and my powder brush is Real Technique, which I love. What a cute bracelet!

  14. The word fall makes me shudder too!! But we have SO many cute fall clothes at work that I want haha. I was just in Sephora last week looking at makeup brushes. I did get a Beauty Blender though and it's pretty awesome. I just don't know enough about brushes to know which ones to get. If you find some really good ones, let me know! Anyways.. love these posts and I hope that you are having a great week!

  15. I love this confessions. I'm with you on all of them. My makeup brushes are SO GROSS right now. I really need to do something about that, lol. Fresh flowers are so up lifting. So excited about Ben H. Total cutie!! So not ready for fall... and it's been cold here the last 2 days. Bummer. I eat around the olives in pasta salad.

  17. I am not ready for Fall yet either! But come September I will jump on board! Need to stock up on all the fall candles!

  18. I bought the oreos too...BAD idea. I told my stepson to hide them from me, so that's working for now...HAHA! YESSS pumpkin spiced latte's I can't even wait!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ha! Cutie! And I may need those Oreos, bad idea be damned!

  20. I love confessionals! And I would be all about the link up! Love that bracelet and I'm not ready for fall yet either... I love summer!! And now I will be sining that Usher song in my head the reast of the day...

  21. mmmm. I love olives. I'm a salt addict anyways so the saltier, the better.
    I forgot the name of my make up brushes - but I love them... & they were a deal off of Amazon.

  22. Those roses are gorgeous!! SO excited about Ben as the Bachelor. I feel like his season will be similar to Sean's! I'm also surprised that Kaitlyn & Shawn are still together.

  25. You had my at small wrists, haha, that bracelet is so cute! And I am soooo excited for the Sweater Weather scent from Bath & Body Works! I keep waiting to find a good coupon, but I might have to cave and just stock up anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am with ya...all my brushes are always long due for a wash. And the oreos...yes...one cookie suddenly turn into a sleeve of them haha!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Go for the linkup!! And I need to go to B&BW and stock up on some Fall candles. Hope you have a good one! Xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  28. I bought 5 bottles of makeup brush cleaner and have used it once....I'm so terrible at that, and at picking the right brushes. Sephora would be my best suggestion to you, they know what they're talking about. I hate thinking that summer is over, but excited for all things Fall. Totally do the linkup, I know plenty of people that love confessions and would follow along!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You should host the link up!! I'm the same way with black olives ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. So funny that "fall" makes you shudder. I'm sure ya'll start to think of snow and ice, and down here we're just begging for a breeze! You have me tempted with the dang Oreos girl...that reverse psychology did NOT work!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oooh definitely get new brushes! My favorite ones are from Urban Decay, Mac and Bare Minearls!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Are you watching Bach in Paradise? I caught up last night on it and man do I wish some things on some people, haha! Ben H will make a good bachelor, and funny thing, I just looked up S & K last night and saw they were still making it too.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I really need new make up brushes too and finally bit the bullet and ordered some - but I'm super cheap so they were from E.L.F. Also, I host a confessions link up called #hashtaghumpday! I started it right after Kathy stopped doing hers (which I joined every single week!)My co-host Lauren and I would love for you to join in!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Umm, I need to try brown batter oreos like yesterday! Haha. I hate olives too! Even their smell gets me!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love confessions! Yes! Please host!!
    Also- that bracelet is perfection! I must pick some (note I did not say one!) up. And although I love summer, fall is my JAM! Bring on all the basicness! ;)
    Happy Wednesday!

  36. Those roses are beautiful!! It is too funny about the confessions post. I myself was thinking about hosting a link up for it. I even made buttons and everything but then I felt like I was the only one still doing them every week so I never pulled the trigger. They are some of my favorite posts from others.

    I am just going to ignore the part where you start talking about brownie batter oreos. That sounds illegal and I am sure they are disgusting!!!! (wipes drool from keyboard)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I never think to do a confessional post, so you should totally do a link-up so I'll be motivated!! And I used to hate olives too until I started having them on pizza and shortly after became obsessed :) And I can't wait to stock up on... Bath & Body Works fall candles!!!! Give me them all!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wait...brownie batter oreos?! How did we not know about these!? Brb, going to the store.

    ReplyDelete
  39. brownie batter oreos?! ummm yes please!!! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  40. I LOVE confession posts! I totally agree with the brushes post. And... brownie batter oreos? Ohh man. xo, Champagne&Suburbs

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm with you on not doing anything for fall in the house until after Labor Day. I just refuse! My mom had a package of those Oreos at the house over the weekend, but I didn't try one - guess it's a good thing so I didn't become addicted. :)

  42. Why is it so hard to remember to wash your makeup brushes??? Every morning I think to myself "Wash them tonight" but it never happens!
