Back to Blogging & Life Update!

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Hello hello hello, everyone!!

It's been WAY too long since I've posted on Chicago Prepster - five months to be exact. The real world definitely got the best of me over the last couple months, and while I was still super active on my Twitter and Instagram my blog definitely took a hit. Mine and Devin's laptops were actually BOTH out of commission for a while and I didn't want to use my work computer for personal blogging (#professionaltip). But we're both back up and running now and I'm insistent on getting back on a regular blogging schedule!

So what have I been up to these past 5 months? Working, working, working. Even one year after I graduated from college I'm still adjusting to having to create a work-life balance. In the past week, however, I've excitedly ACCEPTED A NEW JOB at a new advertising agency! Thanks to a former employer, I'll be working in social media management and content creation - much more up my alley than what I've been doing for the past year. Network, people. I'm telling you it works!

Devin and I also moved into a new apartment which we are extremely excited about. It's way more updated than our last apartment and closer to the Chicago lakefront and beautiful Lincoln Park. Our new kitchen is a dream and Devin has already created some wonderful meals for us and our friends (he's a chef in Chicago, if I've never mentioned that before). Here's my favorite little corner in our new apartment with a make-shift gallery wall. We still have some furniture to purchase and final touches to make, but we love it so far!

Other than that, nothing else has been particularly new. Devin and I will be celebrating FIVE YEARS together next months which is completely mind-blowing. I've been collecting some awesome beauty products over the last couple months that I would love to review for y'all. I've also contemplated filming videos on makeup how-to's and product reviews, but I'm still thinking that one over. If you have a blog post request, leave a comment below and I'll add it to my blogging schedule! 

Thank you all for sticking with me through this blogging hiatus, and I can't wait to get back to creating some amazing content for you!
