Make Me Up Mia: A Lifestyle & Beauty Blog: A Friday Confession Session.

A Friday Confession Session.


I've been blogging for almost 2 years and I've never had a confession post. I like reading them so I decided to share a few things with you today. Super important things that I just really need to get off my chest. 

Not really, they are random and pointless.

#1 My poor poor nails.
If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen em'. Cold temps, lacking in the care department and lots of gym time took it's toll on my nails. Ick right? So I shared this pic and you all had lots of tips for me. I had coconut oil on hand so I've been slathering my hand in it and then putting gloves on at night. Happy to say, they're slowly improving. Can't promise it won't happen again. I need a professional mani though.. 

#2 Divas.
Fun fact- I hate wrestling, always have. However... Eva Marie and the Bella Twins are big fitness inspirations for me, therefore I watch the show. Can't stop, won't stop. I tried.

#3 You're supposed to clean blinds?
We bought our house 6 years ago next month, I've never cleaned the blinds. Might as well be totally honest here, or the baseboards. My friends always give me a hard time about how "clean & perfect" my house is. I've got them fooled. It's tidy but don't get too close to the blinds or the baseboards. You might get bit by something. Don't worry, I plan on deep cleaning this year. It was scheduled in my planner for February. #oops 

#4 I live for snack time.
All day, everyday. I'm happiest when jello or pudding are involved. I'm a child. 

#5 I'm obsessed with YouTube.
The amount of joy I get from watching my favorite YouTube girls at night is ridiculous. I spend any ounce of free time before I sleep doing this. If only watching beauty & fitness YouTubers could be my job. That would be a perfect life. These are my faves.

That's it's, just a random fun little post for ya. Life has been crazy lately, my family is really going through a lot right now, so my energy has just been elsewhere. I'd sure appreciate some extra prayers for them if you don't mind! Hope you all have a wonderful & fun weekend. I'll be at a bachelorette party tomorrow night, complete with a party bus. Fun times ahead in my weekend forecast. 

Throw me a random confession ;)

  1. Yup, I totally love the Divas too even though I HATE wrestling. Do you really think the Bella's won't be back next season? I just can't see it. And YES to snack time! My fav! Happy Friday!

  3. Awwww fun! I'm a big fan of watching youtube videos, especially dance and make up ones, haha.

    My poor nails are shot too, I'm just trying to disguise them with bright nail polish.

    Happy Friday1

  4. Oh I can get lost in some YouTube videos! I need to watch more beauty ones because I am clueless! I LOVE snack time, the best! Hahaha we've lived in our house for almost 7 years and I think I've cleaned the blinds once, maybe twice? I never clean the windows either!

  5. I actually was thinking of you last night and was going to shoot you a quick email just to check in and see how you were. :) So I'm glad to see you here today! Yeah, Total Divas is kind of a guilty pleasure for me, too, and I love YouTube videos just as much as you! I'll have to check out the other beauty guru that you mentioned that's not Jaclyn - I'm always in the market for new people to watch! Sending lots of prayers and thoughts to you and your family! xo

  6. Keeping your family in my thoughts. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one slacking in the deep cleaning department, seriously when is there time to keep up with all this stuff?! Enjoy your bachlorette party this weekend!

  7. Love these posts!! I feel you on the poor nails. Mine are in the same boat. Hope you have a good weekend lady! Sending good thoughts your way. xo

  8. I have been thinking of you this week and was wondering where you've been. I'm glad that you are OK. I love beauty youtube channels so I'll have to check those out. I will continue to pray for you and your family too. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and treat yourself to a manicure! :-)

  9. I clean the most visible areas of our base boards when they get especially dirty, but I haven't touched our blinds at all! EEK! I really should commit to a day of spring cleaning!

  10. I've never cleaned my blinds either! Now at the new house I'm not putting up any window treatments because we have no neighbors and such pretty scenery so here's to never having to clean blinds, ever! Happy Friday beautiful!

  11. i cleaned my blinds once and i reckon they looked dirtier than they did before. it's so pointless, haha. same with the baseboards, the people before us didn't take care of them so they need to be fixed and repainted, even if i do clean them they still look like shit. i figure, i clean the kitty litter, the bathrooms and the floors. that's enough!

  12. My hands have been so dry that I've been using vaseline at night with gloves but now I might switch it up and use some coconut oil too. I go through phases with watching YouTube, but I think I've watched all of those except for Jazmine so I will keep her in mind if I want any fitness/exercise inspiration :) I hope you have a good weekend and have so much fun at the bachelorette party. I will keep you and your family in my prayers <3

  13. Oh girl the whole blinds/baseboard thing is the bane of my existence. I like a clean home but why can't those things just be self-cleaning? I love youtube, too, but you already knew that ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I just buy new blinds... I cant deal with all the hassle of cleaning those pesky little things....
    My twin nieces are SO obsessed with those twin wrestlers!

  15. I used to watch beauty youtube videos like it was my job, but its actually been a long time since I took a gander there.

  16. hahahaha I've never cleaned my blinds or baseboards either!! I mean who is getting that close up to notice?? Will send some prayers your way this weekend :)

  17. I don't think Mark had ever cleaned his ceiling fans until I moved in........that was a very eye opening experience! ;-) I love youtube makeup bloggers! I could watch them for hours!!!

  18. I love snack time, and lunch time, and dinner time, and breakfast time. Basically, food time. And I love some of those beauty youtube gals! Happy Friday!

  22. I snack like crazy! I want to get my body used to breaks in between eating though lol so I've told myself I'm not going to eat until lunch!

  23. I'll be sending prayers your way! My nails never look good. Playing the piano has something to do with that. Estherdavison@gmail.com have fun this weekend!

  24. Aah my nails look awful so don't feel bad. I think it's because I change the polish so much hah. Baseboards and blinds are the WORST that's why no one cleans them ;) This was fun to read. Have a wonderful weekend!

  25. I really don't like and never got in to WWE, but I love the Divas show too! Those girls are so hot! I have no idea how to clean the blinds or baseboard either - you're not alone. Happy Spring!

  26. I never cleaned my blinds either! We don't have any now so I'm glad I don't have to worry about it :-p Girl, that's what my nails look like too! Have a great weekend, Mia!

  27. I pray for your family every night when I say my prayers, but I will send up a few extras and hope that this phase will pass quickly. I myself am a YouTube addict. I subscribe to so many channels (including Jacqueline Hill) and I'm always adding more. My confession--there were so many new videos posted that I wanted to watch that I spent 3 hours watch YouTube the other night. Also, I've never cleaned my blinds or baseboards either and while I probably should, I'm sure it won't happen any time soon. I'm allergic to dust and dust mites so I always use that as my excuse! Enjoy your weekend :)

  28. My nails are a total disaster now (and let's face it, have been for the past 2 weeks)...hoping I can get my act together tonight and throw on a quick mani for the weekend festivities! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beauty Youtubers are the absolute rabbit hole. Pinterest has got nothing on them in terms of time suck. I've never thought to look for fitness ones though! You've created a mo ster and I know exactly what I'll be swo ending my Friday night doing!! You and the fam are in my thoughts, stay strong and positive!!!

  32. This winter has been brutal on my hands! Never have they been worse! Haha it’s easy to let the blinds and baseboards go… if it looks clean that’s all that matters! Snacks allll day!

  33. Glad to hear you're going to have some time to have some fun this weekend - thoughts, prayers and good vibes all being sent your way girl! My hands were in a super similar situation for all of Feb and most of this month - not an ounce of polish in sight and looking super rough. I think I'm going to do a mani/pedi personal pamper session this weekend and catch up on my Youtube addiction too :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I haven't cleaned my blinds either. Oops. I have cleaned my baseboards though because dog hair! Haha! I am starting my spring cleaning this weekend and the blinds, baseboards and other annoying things will be on the mix to do in the next few weeks. Have a great weekend!

  35. You know that part in Step brothers where Will Ferrell says "did we just become best friends?" and they both yell "YUP!" That's how I feel reading this LOL Snacks? hell yes. Total Divas? YES! (I hate wrestling too but that show is so addicting, and now we have to wait until July for a new one!), bad nails? Ugh guilty. I see nail bloggers and I think wow my nails are so shameful haha ;)

  38. I thought I was the only one who was obsessed with Youtube! Like really though ... I look at way too much youtube!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I hate wrestling but love the Divas show as well! It's so good though! I should probably try to find some fitness gurus on yt that I can relate too. Like some former big girls! Might help me with what I'm currently going through.

  41. I've never cleaned the blinds either. Or the baseboards. Or the windows! No shame! I like watching beauty bloggers on Youtube as well and than trying to replicate what they do. It never looks the same though! Thanks for sharing your confessions!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love this! I confess I watch the Divas too. They crack me up. I love that you got a mani after this post. And I'm SO with you on the baseboards and blinds. I'm spring cleaning this week and that's what I'm doing. xo
