Obsessions: 05.04.18

Well, Robin and Michelle are jetting off to Greece this weekend, leaving me all by my lonesome. That means that for the next ten days or so it’ll be all me all the time on the blog, so get ready! In fact, maybe I’ll change the name. Welcome to And Then Hannah Tried! Anyways, here’s what we’ve been thinking about in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.


Sorry, I’m scrambling to pack and get ready for New York + Greece, so really I’m mostly obsessed with finding my passport and making sure I have enough underpants. Wish me luck.

Lash Tinting

I always try to schedule a lash tint before any trips and this week I went back to my all-time-fave Viraj at Kaya Elements. A lash tint is $15 and my normally blonde lashes are inky black for 3–4 weeks. You know I am also obsessed with lash extensions, but this is a bit lower maintenance, and wayyyy cheaper, and perfect for a beach vacation. Viraj is also a master eyebrow threader, so hit her up for a hot face.



Neutrogena Hydro Boost Overnight Gel Mask

To offset my sometimes aggressive skincare routine, I need to throw in a little more moisture. I’ve been loving this overnight mask for it’s super light, gel consistency but still packing a punch. Even though they are labeled as single use, I easily had enough for a whole week. And at only $2.5o each, the price can’t be beat. I’ll be sure to grab a couple for the trip to Greece.

I’m in Love: Is It Making Me Basic? by Karley Sciortino


Coming fresh off my wedding last weekend and all the feels, I loved reading this article by Karley Sciortino, author of the blog, Slutever. The entire article made me literally LOL, especially this bit:

“When I’m single and I see people hiking Runyon Canyon holding hands, I’m like, ‘You are so fucking sweaty—please stop touching each other. I feel clammy just looking at you.’ But when you fall in love, you’re suddenly like, ‘Ugh, I do want you to hold my sweaty hand. And I do want you to take me ice-skating in Central Park at Christmas, even though that’s the corniest thing you could literally ever do—but, like, fuck you, take me ice-skating for one stupid hour without making me feel weird about it, and I’ll suck your dick every day for 365 days.’” 



dolores westworld atwt obsessions

Guys, who else is watching Westworld? I don’t know if this counts as an obsession since I am feeling very underwhelmed so far this season. I know we’re only two episodes in, but I have lost interest quickly. I literally started playing solitaire mid-episode last week. Anyone else watching and want to give me a fresh perspective?

Hip Hop Air Horn

After a few bottles of pink wine on Michelle’s porch one Monday evening, we downloaded a few apps to add to the porch party. Nothing like a hip-hop air horn on demand to keep spirits high! Not recommended during the next day hangover.

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Obsessions: 10.19.18

You wanna know what we have been decidedly NOT obsessed with in the past month? The blog. Womp womp. We’re hopping back in this week, but we’ll be posting a bit more sporadically for a while. Here’s hoping you all loved getting caught up on Michelle’s driveway gate plans yesterday. See what else we’ve been obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
