Day 4 - Four things you wish you could say, but might never.

-"I LOVE YOU" to my deceased grandmother. My granny was one of the most influential individuals in my life. She always knew I could make it, and no matter what I did she was always proud of me.

-"YOU WERE NEVER GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME" to my ex-boyfriend. When I look back I think of  how reckless & stupid I was for someone who wouldn't do the same for me I'm almost ashamed. But I am thankful that God brought him into my life to show me that I deserve & can do so much better.

-"F##K YOU...YOU REALLY SCARRED ME" to the guy who I found peeping into my window at my old apartment. I cried for days and went for weeks without a real night of sleep. For a while I was really living in fear, but I realized that I had to grow stronger from the incident, instead of allowing it to hold me down. Not too many things get me mad enough to curse but I would use every word in the book on him.

-"TAKE A DOSE OF REALITY & GROW UP!" to so many people. Its ridiculous how petty and full of BS "grown" people are. I have a low tolerance for ignorance, and it really hurts to see how people will set themselves back by acting so childish, especially in  this college environment. People forget the reason behind them attending college & some people would be better off still at home.

This Day 4 post was sort of a stress relief...venting with the keys! I feel a little better now lol.

What I Need in My Life-June Edition

1. This Freetress Kara Wig- I didn't fall in love until I came across this video, but when I did I fell HARD!! The color, the style, and the fact that it would give my hair a rest makes it something that I need to invest in.

2. A Cinnabon- I think its been almost a year since I've indulged in one of these. There used to be a Cinnabon  about 20 minutes away from me at the outlets, but they took it out! I was really mad about that too lol. It's all kinds of bad stuff, but so tempting!

3. Blush Colored Blazer- I'm stalking every thrift store in town (and those in Charlotte when I go home) until I have a blush colored blazer in my closet! I'm praying that I find the perfect one on $.50 Sundays at Goodwill.

4. "LUST" by LUSH Cosmetics- This is my favorite perfume ever and last week I ended the bottle *insert a sad, sad cry here*. I hate paying for shipping, and I don't want to make a trip to Atlanta anytime soon so I'm without. I may have to convince my bestie to pick it up for me when she goes next week!

5. Printed Trousers- I love having prints on the bottom! 

 What are you craving this month?


Day 1-Seven Things That Cross Your Mind a Lot

1.Work! I work freakishly long hours for a 20 year old. & I am one of those people who has always taken work stress home with me. I have got to break that!

2.Boys- I'm single so I have the right to be a tad bit boy crazy, lol. The opposite sex makes life so much more interesting.

3.School- I graduate college next year, but then there is the task of figuring out what grad school I'm  going to, and if I still want to go to law school (at this point I don't).

4.Life- I wonder if I'm living my life to the fullest. Some of my peers have done so much that I feel like I'm lacking in the living department.

5.My Future- After I've been completely released from my parents wings I want to know how my life will be...I just want to have a happy life.

6.Money- I spend a lot of it, so of course its on my mind! I have been trying to get my money management skills together, because there is nothing cute about being broke!

7.Friendship- I value every relationship I have with the people I call my friends. I just pray that nothing ever breaks these strong bonds we have!

140 Days til 21

     140 days until my 21st birthday means to me that I have 140 days to get it right! Since my 20th birthday I've been declaring that I would like to be a size 10/12 by my 21st, but have not been taking any successful strides towards that goal, (so slack). I've never been the type to want to be skinny, or never would I be; hips & boobs run all through my family! I just want to be a healthier me. In high school I threw shot-put and discus for the track & field team so I was always getting my cardio and weight-training in, but in my freshman year in college I gained ____lbs...I'm too shamed to even say lol.

     Yesterday I went to Charlotte to be with my little brother for his 16th birthday, and I met up with my bestfriend. She just had a baby 2 months ago and looks fab, and she says she wants to lose 20lbs! I'm like I have no baby so I have no excuse! So I'm embarking on the journey towards a lifestyle change. Right now I'm just exploring different avenues to help me achieve my goal, and deciding what kind of program I want to be on. I like the idea of Weight Watchers because of the support system, and I have yet to hear anything bad about the program. I'm at the point where I've tried alone and clearly it hasn't gotten me anywhere so I gotta have some sure fire motivation!! I asked the lovely Daisy of I'm Just Daisy her thoughts about Weight Watchers and I love her response:

" thanks for the love! The way I look at it is like this: I can blow 40 bucks a month on miscellaneous items on stuff like cosmetic products, shoes, and etc that won't really benefit my health in any way!
So the $40 spent on WW every month is so worth it when you are benefiting from it in a lifestyle change like weight watchers! And the great thing about it is once you get the tools you don't have to keep paying! You can keep up w/ it all on your own w.o paying every week or month!
Don't be afraid to indulge in something that will be worth it in the end girl! :)"

     So hopefully before June ends I will have found my weight loss niche, and be on my way to the golden goal! I'll be sure to keep you all posted as I progress, and hopefully we can motivate and inspire one another to achieve WHATEVER goals we have set!


Fab Find of the Week!

     Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I just wanted to share this cute pair of shades I found this week! I was doing a Goodwill run-through on Wednesday, and as soon as I came in these shades were sitting on the front counter! I was so distracted by them that I forgot to look at the "Color of the Day" sign.

These are a pair of Foster Grant sunglasses for $1!  I checked on Ebay and a similar pair was going for almost $25. I loved them even though i could barely see myself in them because they put those price stickers on the lenses WTF, really??? I got them home, took the price stickers off and the residue was left on them :(....but that was not going to keep me from wearing them! I Googled ways to remove it, and toothpaste removes sticker residue (just in case you ever need that info).

I think I'm cute...Don't judge me!
 I also picked up this skirt ....only spent $3.12 in Goodwill this week! These shades made my week though!


It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Starting today is the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual! If you don't know about this sale, then you don't know what your missing! The sale will run from now until July 3, 2011 or until the supply runs out. For me I have a few must haves:

-Wallflower refills- I'm addicted to these things and they are $5...I'm trying to rack up on at least 4 packs
-Forever Sunshine fragrance, Lemon Vanilla fragrances, and the Margarita Spa Scrub
-Scentportables for my car
-A few gift sets so I can get some early Christmas shopping done 

I usually just travel to the B&BW Outlet to get my scent fix, but the Semi-annual always trumps the outlets in price! Happy Shopping Ya'll!!



I Must Confess....I'm Completely Obsessed - PINK!!

It may be Spring but down here in the south Spring doesn't get much of a chance. I have been embracing my girlish side, rocking essential Spring pastels, and have slowly began to fall back in love with PINK! I think its because I like the way the hues of pink blend with my tanned skin, and how effortlessly pink can give a little life!
I'm even rocking my Pink Friday lipstick, which I initially hated! Found some bomb $.99 raspberry colored lip liner and it gave the lipstick a whole new life. I feel so feminine with this pink shade on lips! Its a nice switch up from the nudes I've been wearing.

I found this Revlon TopSpeed Quick Dry polish in "Pink Lingerie" at Walmart last week. I picked it up as a replacement for some dried up pastel pink polish, but this polish is the truth!! And many of the guys I have come across even comment on the color #WIN !

So pink is my power color right now! Might be orange or blue next month, but for now I'm pretty in pink! What shades are working for you this season? What color trends are you wanting to try? Let me know, because I might want to try out some your suggestions!! 

Been Gone for Too Long, Now its Time to Bring it Back!!

Hey beautiful people! I'm back to blogging...for now jk. I have been meaning to make post since about April but just haven't got around to it *hangs head in shame*. Blame its on final exams, extra hours at work, and lack of a photographer (I'm my own photographer.) But lets put that all behind, and enjoy the post!

This skirt was $2.12 today at Goodwill!! I knew I had to have it when I saw it & at that price it couldn't be left behind. I decided to play dress-up when I got home, and found 2 different ways to rock it!

The first way was a dress, inspired by this post on My Thrifted Closet ...SheRea is awesome!

Added some denim for a more casual, comfy vibe

Here as a skirt! Since thats what it is, lol. I felt kind of fancy wearing it like this! Me likey though!

 And these shoes....LAWD HAMMERCY!!! I found these Jessica Simpson wedges for $15 at Marshalls. Clearly these shoes were meant for me...they were the only pair I saw left, and I didn't discover them until I went over the shoe section a second time!
