The One with the October Instagram Challenges {Week Three}

Writing out “week 3” really hit me and has me wondering where October went! We’re already nearing the end, which means Halloween is coming up and my birthday too (on November 3rd). 🙂

So something happened to me that I didn’t think would ever happen – someone completely copied my blog! Everyone should really pay attention to their referrers in their insights because that’s how I figured it out. I have no idea what this person is getting from copying my site but apparently they felt the need to. I have contacted their web host because I’m not sure what else I’m supposed to do in this situation. Hopefully they can aid me with getting their client to take it down. Has anyone ever dealt with this?! What did you do?

How was everyone’s weekend? I was lucky enough to be off work so I was able to take a road trip to visit my sister and nephew for his 2nd birthday. The weekend was relaxing and an enjoyable visit. Unfortunately, my son came down with a fever on the Friday. He was still his hyper active self during the day which was good but the nights were a little rougher. That’s when it seemed to peak! He still seems like he isn’t 100% recovered but I’ll see tonight, I suppose.

I also came down with a fever on Sunday night and it was awful. It’s been awhile since I experienced one and the chills, sweats, aches and pains that go with it! The funny thing is, I woke up this morning feeling fine! I’m glad that it passed so quickly. It’s very tough as a mom to be sick and have a child to take care of at the same time when you just don’t want to get out of bed.

I’ve pretty much failed at my challenges this week. I had a feeling that would happen with working so much! But here are the days that I did complete and a few extra pictures.

See? I failed. 😦 I’m still trying to play catch up on some of the days! Some I won’t bother with because I already have similar photos. Here are the miscellaneous pictures from this past week:

The giveaway I won from the lovely Jess:

The advent calendar I bought from LookFantastic (more photos and probably a blog post will come on this!):

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! xx

  1. You look gorgeous! And, two separate blogs of mine were copied by a website in France! I haven’t done anything yet, but there are things that you can do, such as sending them a letter. Google copied blogs and there’s examples of what you can do! Isn’t it horrible? I wonder if it was the same site?


  2. WTF! That’s so sketchy that someone copied your blog. Your whole blog?
    I can only imagine how hard it is to have a little one that is sick, and you have to take care of him but you feel like crap yourself!


  3. That is so crazy that someone did that! Seems like a whole lot of work for nothing. Your blog is certainly valuable, but to other people??? I hope you feel better soon!


    1. Although I did just see today that someone has put my Fenty Beauty Galaxy Lipgloss post on their blog and linked it to mine… It’s some sort of SEO website.. I’m just ignoring it for now I guess.


      1. That is weird for sure! People should ask permission before taking work. At the very least they are not claiming it as theirs but it could affect the views on your own post. I hope not!


    1. I hope so. I haven’t heard back from the web host and there is no contact on the website that copied because it’s my contacts they have on there lol.
      Hopefully he’s better soon. The doctor thinks strep so we’re waiting for test results!


  4. That sounds awful when someone copies a blog! I should pay attention too . i have never thought of this before.


  5. Wow, the fact someone copied your whole blog is so surprising to me. It never occurred to me that people would do that kind of thing. Pretty naive of me I guess. Now you’ve got me thinking, how did you find out that they had copied your blog?
    Anyway I hope that you’re able to get them to take it down.


    1. I had a weird link in my referrers that I had never seen before so I clicked on it and there it was! So crazy! It’s one of those things that you hear about but don’t expect to happen.
