2 Years

Pic Via
Wow. 2 years. I've finally hit two years with My Life as Alyson. I remember being in my first year of blogging and wondering if I'd ever make it to this point. I dreamt of the days were I'd hit the two year mark and no joke, it came out of no where. It hit me like a truck and I realized in the middle of my APUSH class today that today was when the blog hit two. 

This post isn't going to be too extravagant because there has just been so much going on with school. The blog has just taken a backseat and the last thing I could really think about. I missed all week last week with the flu and I've had so much work to make up this week. I wish I could tell y'all that I'm coming back soon with more posts, but it's not going to happen. My posts will be very sporadic, but I'll update y'all on whats been going on when I can. 

Thank y'all so much for sticking around and being so supportive these past two years. Seriously if it wasn't for you readers I wouldn't be here writing and sharing things with y'all. I seriously consider all of y'all as my friends an I'm so happy to have built connections with all y'all!

Cheers to two years and cheers to so many more!

January Favorites | 2017

A new year, a new round of monthly favorites! There is honestly nothing more that I love than sharing monthly favorites. Whenever I find a new product that I absolutely love, I cannot stop talking about it. I just talk and talk my friends ears off about all my new favorite products. That's probably why I have a blog, because y'all like to hear about my favorites when I have the desire to share them!

I hope y'all had a good January! Mine was a bit topsy turvy. It was good and bad all combined into one month. School has gone back to being stressful and the regular high school drama has flooded the halls I spend every waking day in, but aside from that it's been good. It's been ULTRA rainy though. One thing I really hate about January where I live is the weeks are just filled with rain. We had what seemed like two solid weeks without any sunlight and for someone who loves sunny days it was hard not to be a bit gloomy. I've always thrived off of sunny days and January is usually just a bit tough to power through. There were afternoons this week where the sun broke through the clouds and I'm not kidding you, I was a little appalled seeing a bright yellow light in the sky.

As of being MIA for what seems like this entire month, I'll cover it in my Currently post coming Friday.

A Vest Obsession

There is really nothing I love more than a cute, good quality vest. No joke I have five. Yes, five. Obsessed much, um yeah. My vest collection has grown over the years, I didn't buy them all at once, but each new addition has helped me to create so many more cute outfits. It's amazing what a fun vest can do to a simple top. I wanted to share some cute ones I've found!
