Got Juice? Juicy Couture that is!



Hey..Guess what my sis got me for Christmas? How'd ya know?
Juicy Couture is so in my top 10 fragrances now.

Great gifts and Great finds


Now don't play like you never shopped for others before Christmas and ended up buying yourself stuff in the process. I went to my local outlet store...Did I mention I LOVE outlets? Anyways, I went shopping for gifts and saw this really THICK, COMFORTABLE, scarf by Nautica. It's a sand/cream color and it's absolutely perfect for this yucky weather.
While thumbing through this mess of a stocking rack I found two pieces that I love. I'm a big Tights person and these are so unique I just had to grab them for only $1 each. The first is a black tight with pink and blue dots and the other one has a gorgeous gold print that's sort of hard to describe :(
And lastly, I found the most amazing pair of slippers. They're by Totes Isotoner and I'm happy to have ran into these mugs.lol They are so comfy and I snagged them for only $5. These puppies are going for about $20 on their website http://www.totes-isotoner.com. Yeah boi!

I have happy lips now!




Check out this quad I snatched from Sephora,. Can you believe it was the last one on the shelf :)
Thanks to my $15 off a $35 purchase I felt comfortable grabbing this one. It was $25 which isn't that much for Four colors but I'm a Thrifty person so it meant a lot to me.lol my sephora card came in handy. They sent me the $15 off coupon online and I was thrilled. I also get special deals as well, similar to how Ulta does their whole rewards point thing. Anyone can sign up at a sephora store. Maybe even on their website at http://www.sephora.com

Check it out!

These looks got my attention



Even Beyonce with her often "classic" look can get a little funky sometimes. This is a rocker/girlie creation that caught my eye.



As beautiful as Holly is she sometimes appeared a little plain at times in the past. (I'm not hating, I'm just saying, there's pretty and there's interesting) However she's also getting a little edgier while staying very put-together at the same time. Loves it!

This simple "clean face" look is eye-catching because of it's simplicity. I shy away from blond hair because it's so overdone sometimes, however this doesn't scream "BABS" to me.lol It actually looks soft when paired with a simple face.
And finally, Rihanna. Gotta love this girl. She will literally try anything and for some reason it works. Her style is definitely signature including this "Animal Kingdom" hair she's rockin. I'll admit it, I wouldn't dare take the risk but I gotta hand it to her for breaking fashion barriers.

Go Get A Blazer Man!


Hello. Okay, is it just me or is anyone else loving the blazer look. Personally, I've always loved blazers. The only downside with it's popularity now is that they're getting pricey, but don't freight! There are ALWAYS ways around breaking the bank.

First, there are a BILLION really nice blazers at thrift stores. I mean, seriously, I've seen everything from J Crew to Banana Republic and other really nice brands there. And the colors and textures (corduroy, satin, velvet). I mean, you name it, they have it.

A little dry cleaning and you've basically saved a ton of money and you probably have a better quality jacket.

I got this for really cheap at, of course, T.J Maxx for about $7. I literally wear it everywhere from church to seeing a movie. Blazers can go with ANY look.
Bye :) XOXO

Lovin my fingerless gloves



I have been wanting some of these gloves for so so long.

I didn't shop around for the best price but I still didn't pay too much. I saw some online for $15-$30 bucks but please, I didn't want them That bad. I went to Target and got the beige long ones for about $10 and the short red ones for $9.

These bad boys can spice up any simple jeans and T shirt look or whatever.

Check out my super white nails courtesy of Sally Hansen at Walmart for only $2 a pop. Picked up a few more colors shown on my you tube vid. Go get em' ladys! :)




Still on my getting healthy mission

So...I was doing excellent today until about 5:45pm

Me looking goofy lol :)




MY Healthy Day (or somewhat healthy)

  • woke up around 8:00 (a.m) and did 1 hour of advanced Tae Bo. Seriously, if you guys really want to get in shape you need to get some Billy Blank into your life. He is awesome at making you feel like your about to collapse, but you work your butt off. REALLY!

  • Showered, co-washed hair, made two strand twists, painted nails (made YouTube vid)

  • Ate an awesome bowl of Cascadian Farm Organic oats with banana slices. YUM Oh and a cup of coffee.
  • Did a million errands including laundromat (Finished my take home test before class tonight)

  • OK, this is where I messed up. I was hungry and did not have time to make a salad at home as planned so I made the mistake at grabbing a McChicken and Small Fry from Mickey D's. The only good thing is that I didn't finish. I felt like I was eating an entire Chicken. Reason being is when you don't eat fast food for a long time, it feels like too much when you do. This is coming from a person who was still hungry after a Big Mac Meal just a year ago. Big Improvement. I'll have to get more disciplined about situations like these.

  • After my marketing class I settled down with the last of my banana pudding. So Delish!


    It wasn't the worst day thanks to Billy, but I plan to do much better in the future.
    Toodles! XOXO

My next Victim

I must have this purse. 1. Its sleek 2. The design is very chic 3. It can hold all my crap 4. It's super affordable (under $40) 5. I usually dress simple so fashion bags really spice up my look
YEAH...It's "alot" to the eye but it's the kind of bag you wear when your clothes aren't making a statement.

Will definitely purchase this for my B-Day in November. Go Scorps!

Today has been a success!

Ok... Big Hello to all of you. so... I've been bad lately :( I feel fine but I have been super lazy with my exercising routine, So today I was determined to get a good run in.

My lovely day:


1. Worked, even though it was my off day. I left early (6:30am-10:30am)


2. Jogged (trail is 3 miles but because of construction and detour it was ~3.5 miles)

  • I finished in 45 minutes. I know that's not mind blowing but the trail I jog has more hills than you can imagine so I'm really getting my work-out on.lol
  • Plus I used to do 3 miles in the same time so I've improved :) YEAH!
3. Did a little shopping. Got 2 shirts from T.J max (on sale for $10 and $5 ) and a pair of regular blue jeans for $2 from NBC clothing- yes TWO DOLLARS! They're not anything mind blowing but they fit well and are simple enough to pair with something more popping.

They look rather lame but they fit well and they're versatile.


I absolutely love this shirt and for $5, I couldn't pass it up. Pair it with some jeans, leggings, tights, shorts, whatever you want.
This shirt style is the fashion trend right now. It gives off a slouchy yet fashionable look that's popular today. You can play with this and dress it up or down depending on your bottom piece, hair, and accessories.


Also...

4. Went to class (Principles of Marketing) Brought everyone donuts just for fun. Got out of class early at about 7:45PM

5. Updated my blog (How sweet of me)
It's time to lay it down...Bye!

Really family, Procrastination can creep into your life very unintentionally. I've dealt with this issue for some time. I'm really focusing on doing what I need to do instead of putting things (i.e exercising, studying, reading the bible, etc) off til a later date. It only hurts in the end. Life doesn't wait on anyone so live everyday to the fullest. I plan to. God Bless.

It has been 18 months of natural hair growing and " I"M SO EXITED...AND I JUST CAN'T HIDE IT".LOL Okay...cornball as usual but really, I flat ironed my tresses and I was even surprised by the results. My hair has grown soooo much. I really hadn't noticed since most of the time it's in raggedy braids, underneath a hat, or just pulled back. Even when it's in a fro it's very hard to tell its growth because of the super tight curls I have. I can't wait until my 2 yr mark. I wonder how long it will be then? Guess I'll try to be patient til that time comes.

So.... Well, I'm still determined to better my diet and exercise regularly. I've been going jogging (usually 2-3 miles) about three times a week. With my schedule, that's all I can commit to right now. I'm not over-eating and I'm preparing more meals ahead of time so I don't find myself grabbing something at fast food joints. It's going pretty well.

I treated myself to a Chicago-style deep dish pizza because it was my mom's birthday. UMm UMm good. The only sucky thing is that it turned into meals for us for about 3 days since it was so
FREAKIN huge:( I have to work extra hard now just to make up for that Monstrous pizza.

The jogging is going well. I have more energy and I know it sounds strange but I'm actually happier and I feel better about myself. Weird, I know, but not really, says some specialists. According to
Mark Dombeck, Ph.D at Mental Help.Net, When you exercise regularly, you tone your body and metabolism, regulates stress hormones like cortisol, and promotes the release of endorphins (morphine-like substances that your body naturally releases when you exercise). I encourage everyone get some type of exercise, whether it be jogging, running, walking, bike-riding, etc.. Lets stay strong, live long, and stay happy ;)

Time to get healthy


Hello Bloggers, I've been M.I.A for a while. Here's the deal. Ok. I was thinking about this mega quesadilla meal I got while vacationing in Houston Tx at Chacos (Yum),and my mouth started to water. That got me thinking about an issue I've been avoiding lately. Yes, I Love hair and makeup, but it's been on my mind that health is an issue that is being greatly overshadowed by beauty. So.... I'm on a healthy mission. Mission: Get healthy.lol Simple.... Not necessarily, but I'm determined and a little vain.lol At least I'm honest right? Good things going in has to have not only health benefits but also beauty benefits as well. video coming up soon on the details. If I can do this, which I will, anyone can. Peace for now.XoXo

OVER 1 YEAR NATURAL!


So, I've been natural for about 1 year and 2 months. Well, it's mostly been pretty nice. For my naturals out there, you know we have our bad days where we dont know what to do with this stuff :) However, for the most part I've loved the experience and I can't even imagine doing the relaxer again. I'm not againt them and I do like some straight styles, but for me, nappy 4 life. Its just so cute and different. I feel like I'm finally Me and that feels great
XOXO

Collective Haul:Mac,CCO,target,NYX


My biggest haul ever! I've bought some wonderful things lately and I am very pleased with the overall costs and quality of the products. Check out your closest CCO outlet for reduced Mac makeup. The only bummer is that the mac I bought online with the free shipping is now free shipping and 25% off, if you spend 60 dollars or more
:( oh well, knew I should have waited.
