Weekend Rewind + Beauty Giveaway Coming Tonight

Stay tuned for my very first worldwide BEAUTY GIVEAWAY opening tonight! Follow me now so you won’t miss it!

Good morning everyone! Labor Day Weekend is right around the corner!

To be honest, I’m a little surprised I even survived this past weekend. Friday was quite literally the worst night of my life. My dog was attacked by another dog in my neighborhood.

Yoshi (20 lbs) was meeting a husky (50-60 lbs), and I don’t know if the husky got spooked or what, but as soon as Yoshi was within reach, he chomped down on Yoshi’s snout, lifted him off the ground and started shaking him. I was screaming and picked Yoshi up while the other guy was using both hands to pry open his dog’s mouth. After what felt like eternity (probably 5-7 seconds), the husky released Yoshi’s snout and I made off like a bat out of Hell. I hugged him so tightly the whole walk (run) back to my apartment and immediately inspected him when I crossed the threshold. Nothing. No blood, no marks, his eyes were fine, nothing. In addition, he was acting fine. At this point, I became the definition of hysterical. I don’t think I’ve ever cried that hard. My baby was somehow okay 😥

IMG_9121He probably became the definition of spoiled at this point, because I was ready to give him whatever he wanted! I know it’s not the owners fault and I would never report it unless I knew the dog had this kind of repetitive behavior. But man, it was terrifying to go through. Luckily, he has acted like nothing ever happened.

The rest of my weekend was less eventful, but still tiring. I slept like a rock on Friday night (go figure), and then Ryan and I went for a swim at the Rec Center to prep for our triathlon this weekend. Did I mention this is the first time I’ve been in a pool since before I got LASIK back in December? Good thing my swim portion of my tri is only 250 yards and waist-deep! Haha

Sunday we biked 8.5 miles and only ran 2 because the heat and sun was making us both sick. The rest of the day was spent playing with Yoyo, updating my closet app, and binge-watching TV.

What a rollercoaster of physical and mental fatigue it was. But you know what? Everything is alright, today is a new day, this week is a new week! 😀

Today’s OOTD:

IMG_9176 laqa_liplube_menatour_900x900I also am wearing LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube in “Menatour” which I received in my Birchbox a couple months back 🙂 It’s a little more purple than it photographs. The texture is buttery smooth, without any runniness. It also has a faint mint smell on application.

Also, stay TUNED for details on my very first beauty GIVEAWAY. I promise, you will not want to miss it!

What are you looking forward to the most this week? XO

  1. That’s awful. Years ago I had a pug that was attacked by a lab mix (I know, they’re supposed to be so friendly, right?) and it was really scary. Partly because the other dog was quite large and it was frightening for me to try and pull them apart. Little Winston walked away with a scratch on his eye and eventually he lost all/most of his sight on that side, but it could have been so much worse. I’m sure Yoshi got lots of love and special treats over the weekend….
