Quick Life/Blog Update


In case you don't follow me on social media, I posted on all of my social platforms yesterday that I would be away from the blog for a bit because my little brother was having surgery. So I just wanted to take a moment to give you an update about that.

The surgery was yesterday morning and it went very well! My brother is now recovering, but I just wanted to let you all know that I've decided to take the rest of the week off, through Friday (3/3), to be by his side and help him with his recovery. He's out of the hospital now and has lots of things he has to do ensure that his recovery is smooth. So I want to be there to make sure he's doing those things properly, and sticking to doctor's orders. Typical big sister stuff but hey, that's what sisters are for, right? 

Thanks so much to all of you for the incredibly sweet comments yesterday on social media. I read them ALL to him yesterday after his surgery and it truly lifted his spirits. His words: "Wow, I feel like a rockstar! Please thank everybody for me." So thank you, again, for the kind wishes.

I should be back to blogging as usual on Saturday, and I want to apologize for not approving comments as quickly as usual. The blog has been the last thing on my mind over the past 24 hours, so hopefully I'll be able to read through all pending comments and approve them at some point today.

Again, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your love and support. I'll be back on Saturday but, in the meantime, there are lots of sales going on which I blogged about earlier this week. If you're itching to make some purchases, just scroll back through my last few posts for more info. Also, don't forget to check the links at the top of my blog to the Macy's and Nordstrom beauty sale pages for any new deals that may have popped up today (I haven't had a chance to check those lately but you never know what could be there today).

Love,
G. xo

  10. That's wonderful G. So glad it all went well. You take your time & remember to take some time for you as well. Taking care of anyone can be heavier than people want to acknowledge. It's mentally, emotionally & physically exhausting so you make sure to do a little something special for G. Love & strength to you both! Baby brother G, you got this! Remember your sister loves makeup & facial care as a thank you gift ��

  23. I'm so glad to hear your brother is recovering - I hope you both are doing well! My heart goes out to you; I know how scary and stressful having your loved on go through surgery can be. My brother had brain surgery over the summer for tumors, and they actually had to remove a part of his brain - I was so terrified I had a bit of a mental breakdown. Please take as much time as you need to mentally and physically recover!
