Welcome Wednesdays 2: Put On Your Lipstickk

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 10: Welcome Wednesdays


Hola dear Enthusiasts! Today on Welcome Wednesday, we are going to welcome a new blogger buddy of mine, Alanna from Put On Your Lipstickk! When Alanna approached me months ago about working together, I was so excited to have her write for the blog! We’ve been talking and it’s great to have someone with a bit older voice on the blog, as we all know I’m kind of growing out of my teenage years. I hope you all enjoy what Alanna has to say as much as I do! So, without further ado, let’s say a big Welcome Wednesday to Alanna!

You can view my post on Alanna’s blog here.


In Between

Hello Enthusiasts,

I am so very excited to be writing my FIRST GUEST POST!! Not only is it my first guest post, but I have also gotten the wonderful opportunity to work with Morgan, the teenage enthusiast, who is so very inspirational and enlightening at such a young age. When I first read her blog I thought I was reading a twenty something’s blog who had just kept the blog name from when she was a teenager. When I found out she was only 19, I was surprised and so proud for her even though we hadn’t yet spoken.


She and I are very similar in what we are trying to accomplish with our blogs, and I see a lot of myself in her even at my ripe old age of 24. Now, I have a full time job, and I’m working on my graduate program, but I (most of the time) still feel like that carefree (but serious when necessary) 19 year old I see in Morgan. I want to thank Morgan so much for doing this with me, and I hope she wants to do it again very soon!! You rock, Morgan! Keep it up


Today I want to talk about feeling in between. Some of you may be thinking, “What is she talking about?” But I’m willing to guess that the people who have been in this limbo (shall I say) of in between knew exactly what I meant as soon as they read it.

Let me try and define it:

     -In between- an area of life (mentally and physically, I suppose) where you haven’t quite grown into or started a part of life that almost everyone you know has, but you’ve also outgrown some of your old ways.

I think that in some way everyone can relate to this to some degree in many, many different situations.Read More
