Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

I’m in a funk.

A bloggy funk that is
My email is outta control. 
I never have time to do anything. 
I need an assistant. Come to think of it, sis is unemployed… she does owe me for all of the fantastic sex kitten hair I have crafted for her over the years… anyhoo…
I feel like I have NOTHING to say. 
Nada. 
No new drama with the ex.
No new boys to write home about. 
No bachelorette parties to report on. 
zip. 
If you are still reading, which I highly doubt you are, heeeeeeelp. 
If you have ever asked me anything, and I have either 1. forgot to answer or b. still have your email in my inbox with a big pink star next to it saying ANSWER, then now is your chance. 
We are gonna get to the bottom of some things. A lot of you may be wondering “what happened to the guy that sent you the clutch”…. or “do you ever talk to Reed anymore…” or “how do you paint your nails so perfectly by yourself…” or even “how much do you weigh…”
Scrrrrrrrrrrr. I ain’t answering that one chics. You gotta be outta your mind. 
but you get the point. If there is something you wanna know, like how I organize my panty drawer, then go for it. It is all free game. 
Make me proud girls. I might even vlog some of them. Over wine. IONO. whatever strikes my fancy. 
For now I’m back to Modern Family, my facemask, and some pinot. 
au revoir bishes.

    Girl I've been curious what happened to the guy that sent you that beauteous gorgeous clutch! Please do share , I'm sure I'm not only reader out here wondering haha 🙂

  2. Ya I wanna know about the guys and your nails!

  3. Ok, no matter what you blog about, you Miss Lou Lou are freakin' fabulous and no one should EVER tell you different. I have TOTALLY been wondering what happened to the clutch guy so for sure some updates on that are needed!!

  4. Whitney says:

    I wanna know about the guy who sent the clutch too? Or what about the guy who introduced you to Carrie (maybe I missed that one)? Where in Lexington do you buy your weaves? (Lexington girl–getting ready to take her real weave out soon. I wanna know which store, esp the sista weave shop). I remeber the DIY weave post with the glue gun LOL. Any new news about the blogger meet-up?

  5. Kristen says:

    I was wondering about the guy who sent you the clutch-what happened?!

  6. Corie says:

    I'm still reading 🙂 Have you ever done what's in my purse blog? I like seeing how people organize their make up collection.. Or a house/apartment tour 🙂 Just take pictures!

  7. meghan says:

    I was hoping you'd blog about how to make thin hair look thick and necessary tools that every thin haired girl should have without getting extensions. I know you're good, so I'm hoping to learn. I've got thin thin thin hair.

    🙂

  8. Lauren says:

    I have a question! I could swear you posted a picture of your little sister dressed in a Toddlers and Tiaras glitz pageant costume! Am I remembering correctly and if so where can I get a fab costume like that???

  9. ace says:

    Has anyone ever pulled your weave out?! Or has it ever fallen out & embarrassed you?? I would love to try wearing one for a fun night out on the town but I'm scared!!!!! I have thin craptastic hair

  10. J says:

    modern fam, face mask and pinot sounds great!

  11. Modern Family is my favorite!! I have 2 questions…1) Which wine would you recommend for someone who isn't a big fan of most wine. I only drink moscato, but I want to drink something more "adult" I guess you could call it. 2) What is your go-to outfit when you want to feel amazing about yourself! Hope to hear your answers! 🙂

  12. Jihan S. says:

    How DO you organize your panty drawer? Ha ha! Just kidding. I'm new to this blog and I would love to know what you do for a living? I get the idea that you're in web design. Please tell!

  13. Kelli says:

    I think you're too cute, and I would like to know what happened with the guy and the clutch. I get the same way sometimes though, feeling like I don't have anything to say on the ole' blog. I'm kind of a foodie, or at least I LOVE to cook, so many of my posts have to do with that. come stop by sometime and check it out.

  14. bnfunky says:

    Clutch guy, please!!! Bless him!

  15. etta says:

    Do you ever have a day where you just lounge about the house in sweatpants with no makeup and don't fix your hair?

  16. I would also love to hear about the guy who sent the gift.
    I'm new to blogging and haven't figured a lot of stuff out. I would love some blog advice – specifically, 1) How do you do the "handwriting" over pictures (where you have an arrow pointing to something and comment on it…you know) and 2) How do you do such cute designs? Signatures, "by topics," categories with pics on the sides, etc. Can't wait to hear from you! Thanks!

  17. I want to know the nail and the guy w clutch answer!

  18. Carrie says:

    Please, please, please tell us what happened with the guy that sent the clutch!!!!

  19. Alice says:

    I literally was thinking about the guy who sent you the clutch today whilst making some delicious muffins. What muffins have to do with it, I don't know, but I HAVE to know!
    I will also say that your blog is one of my favorites to read, so you best be finding some shtuff to write about 🙂

  20. Girl get outta that funk! I do really want to know whatever happened with the guy that sent you that clutch! If you are ever in Tuscaloosa, call me & we'll have some Skinny Girl Margaritas.

    Lotsa love!

  21. Amy Lianne says:

    Lou, I wanna hear all of the above (with emphasis on Clutch Guy and current Reed status), but I would also be interested in maybe some career advice. I'm a recent college grad and still looking for my *job*. You seem to have done well for yourself and happy in your professional life; any inspiration or advice on that front? Wass yo story, girl?
    xoxo

  22. Raven says:

    ohh mizz lou lou.

    that picture kills me. kills me.

    "how much do you weigh" haha! anonymous asked me that the other day. I would write back 300 pounds but obvs, there is no reply address.

    what I want to know is: how much do you absolutely love me? Cause i know you do, but how MUCH. Like, in terms of to the moon and back? Mars? More than your LV bag? More than Sadie??????????

    that's my questions. I'd appreciate if you answered.

  23. Tiffany says:

    Cannot wait for your blogs/vlogs answering questions!! And I've been dying to know about the clutch dude!

    Here's one of my favorite questions to ask–what is something you know about life today that you did not know when you were 18? And what are some items on your bucket list??

    Alright, PLL it's intervention time! I suggest you grab you a big ole' bottle of Pinot, you don't even need a glass, and just vlog all of it! You know it will be fun! I have been checking to see when you will post about the Clutch Guy! I'm sad it hasn't happened yet, but I am sure you have good reason. One of my fav. vlogs is when you have your lou lou sissys with you! It's funny! Can't wait to see what you do tell us! One question, if you EVER come to SC hit me up!

  39. Café Moka says:

    Can you describe a typical day at work?
    Do you keep a food diary, do you count calories? What do you eat on a daily basis?
    I was also wondering about your living arrangements? Do you live at home or in a apartment alone or with roommates? Please share some pictures!

  42. I'm a new fan of your blog and I love, love, LOVE it! You remind me so much of myself, in fact I just bought that super cute blue dress you wore recently 😀 Anyway, I was wondering if you dye your extensions to match your hair color? I have super light blonde hair as well and haven't been able to find ANYTHING that matches, thanks!! xoxo

  43. ashley says:

    still reading, girl. can't think of any questions at the moment…although i am curious about the clutch guy…hope you are having a great week!

  44. Lyndse says:

Weddings have consumed my whole summer too and they aren't letting up til October 🙁 My poor blog has suffered. I have been taking a lot of pictures so when im ready to return i'll have lots of material. Pictures are the best inspiration if you feel ur in a rut. Have a fabulous day!

  54. Stephanie says:

    More on your OCD… I'd love to see office organization tips!

  55. Katie says:

  57. Krisha says:

    YES!! What happened to clutch boy?! And the guy that you went to the wedding with a few months ago? And what about the cute guy at your office that brought you candy?!

    Oh my goodness, I am such a creeper…

  58. gina says:

    I'd love to see a step by step tutorial in pictures rather than video of how you do your makeup and hair. I especially loved your makeup look from the wedding you went to recently.

  59. Holly says:

    Tips and products to help fine hair look fuller!

    Oh, and closet tour!

  60. Crystaljk78 says:

    I'm wondering if you ever made it to Minnesota yet to see your friend who had a baby? If so, what did you think of it compared to Kentucky? I've lived in MN my whole life and i wouldn't change it for anything! I always say, I'd way rather get cold sometimes than be too hot 🙂

  61. Alyson says:

    I think it would be cute to do a "day in the life post"…ya know, what a typical day for you is like. I've read some bloggers who break it up by the hour or activity.

    Also, are you a spender or a saver? I thought I read a post a while back where you quickly mentioned paying off a whole bunch of debt?! I'm always interested in new budgeting ideas!

    So many fun ideas posted!

  62. Day Old News says:

    I have a feeling you'll have a lot to talk about with all that is coming up this fall. If not, having the sissies guest post!

  63. Mighty Burns says:

  71. Holly says:

  72. Lauren says:

    Well first of all, I would like you to know that you are FABULOUS…funk & all! 😉 Like everyone else, I would like to know about that gosh-darn mystery clutch sender! And…I was wondering if you could tell me where BabyLouLou got her white jeans that you posted a picture of here -> http://pinkloulou-confessionsofa20something.blogspot.com/2011/08/pll-back-in-ky.html. I have been DYING to find some & I know that it's almost time to hang them in the closet but I think I can get a couple more weeks out of them! 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  73. Deidre says:

    I am totally interested in how you paint your nails so perfectly yourself. I am terrible at it.

  74. higirl says:

  76. lil desiqua says:

    That is one of the cutest dogs ever. And I feel your pain- I'm in a blog funk right now as well!!

    But hooray for the freakin weekend!

  77. JMB says:

    Cheers to the frakin weeekend….

  78. Lauren says:

  79. Kristen says:

    I remember one time you talked about a budget and/or paying off credit cards and debt in a year.. I'd love to hear how you did that!!!

    and of course the clutch guy!!!

  80. Unknown says:

    We have pug twins and Sophie wants to know what size collar Sadie wear… the little princess says she wants one too 😉

  81. lol, you are so ridiculously funny!
    love reading your blog and hilar that everyone wants to know about the "clutch guy" so do tell!
    have a happy weekend!

  82. Shannon says:

    Well, if you don't answer the question about the boy that sent the clutch, THEN and maybe ONLY THEN, would you lose readers…;)

    I love, love your blog and your writing style and I would love to know what you've done to grow your blog specifically? Just fantastic posts? Commenting on other blogs? I'm fairly new at this and if anyone could tell me why in the HELL there is usually so much space btwn the end of my posts and the area where you click to leave comments, I would be so grateful!

  83. ♡ BSA says:

    I've been curious about clutch guy!! You can share some nail tips too! Always great to know when I don't have time to get mine done!

  84. Abby Houston says:

    For sure would love to hear about the 'clutch guy,' just like everyone else! But what do you do to stay looking so fabulous? With the begining of Fall, I find that I always get in a rut with my exercise and trying to eat right. Do you do anything specific to keep looking amazing?
