Spring is FINALLY in the air and I am so excited! I feel like I’ve been shut up inside the house for months and I can’t wait to get out and do all the fun things on my list for 2017. After doing my taxes this year that refund is just begging to be used for something good this year. The BF and I were discussing what we wanted to do with our weekends this summer and I thought it was the perfect way to maximize our refund and get some more quality time together! I just bought the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan, which is unlimited* Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) plus a free VUDU movie credit every month ($7 value) per line for $49.88, and I thought this was the perfect starter for our best spring date night ideas!

// affiliate links included

I don’t think I’ve ever been as happy to see Friday as I was yesterday! As you can tell by the lack of regular posts this week, it was pretty busy. Sometimes real life gets in the way and when I finally got a night to myself last night, I was asleep before 10pm. Bloggers lead some real exciting lives! Saturdays are always my favorite day of the week because I set aside almost the entire day for blogging: photo shoots, filming, writing with a nice cup of coffee or La Croix and I’m happy as can be! Here’s some of the other things I’m loving this week, and don’t forget to go enter in last week’s roundup for a chance to win a $15 Starbucks gift card!

Whenever I tell people about myself and what I do for a living their jaws usually drop a little closer to the floor by the time I’m done! I cram a lot of work into my 24 hour days but that’s how I am – I live the hustle. I’m incredibly lucky to have sponsors and companies that want to support A Thing of Beauty and the kind of person I want to be, but it isn’t always easy. I’m a full time marketing specialist, a blogger, a freelancer, a girlfriend, a best friend, a sorority sister and a daughter, and it can be challenging to balance all those roles in one person! So here’s my top secret tips on how to balance a side hustle with a full time job.

My Spring Pampering Skincare Routine

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media®  & Remington  but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #CleanFaceWithRemington  http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH 

Bring on the glow! I’m already thinking about getting my skin beach ready and I know you are, too! The sun finally peaked out from behind the clouds in Michigan last week and I immediately started up the best of my spring skincare. Whenever the seasons are drastically changing I like to revamp with a pampering skincare routine to give me that effortless supermodel glow. I don’t do this routine every night, just when I’m looking for a Beyonce-level of glam and glow! I have a few secret weapons for my spring pampering skincare routine, and it’s more than just a few “magic” potions!
