Movie Lover's Paradise

[due to my negligence of posting, i forgot to post this a month ago... hope its not too late!!]
Sooo if you love movies you'll need to know what i'm about to tell you!! Sadly due to the piss-poor economy many businesses ae forced to close. =( Hollywood Video Store is no exception.. i remember when this store first opened in my old hometown back in Texas... But the one by my house is closing in the next few months weeks and they are having a masive sale!!! I'm talking $4 and $5 for movies.... old and semi-new! I'm kinda excited since i love movies. I'll have to make a list of movies I want to see and search for the next week. lol ha.. never made that list and now the store is damn near bare =(

In the last few weeks, i did find/purchase these movies... welll movie and TV show...

.....yea 'The Love Guru' looks supeer corny, but its all for the love of JT.. and him wearing a speedo ;)
-- the Prison Break disc is actually and extended version of the finale.... ties up some loose ends.. and some parts are way different then what was aired

but OMFG if anyone... and i mean ANYONE knows where I can find the movie below.. PLEASE let me know... i loved that movies when i was like 12 and would love to see it again. =)

Are They Serious? random TV show rant...

So I was watching Maury yesterday and began to wonder... Why do these people still not see the signs of cheating men?? How are these women still not knowing who their baby daddy's are??? Do they not reaize how hoeish [sp?] they look when they test more than 2 guys??? Seriously!!! I love watching Maury for the laughs, and it was the thing to watch back in middle school... but now its getting old. Same story each day, just different faces. One day these people will stop looking embarassing themselves... okay, rant over!

Weekend update

So I had a busy weekend!!! But never too busy for a little shopping.
- I worked job #2 all weekend....
- almost went to the New Moon dvd release fiesta.. but ended up not going, which kinda worked out cause i heard it was a waaste of time.
- woke up too early on Saturday to buy New Moon from Target... 3 discs of that hottie Taylor Lautner! lol i havent even watched all of the bonus stuff yet =/

- Also made a stop at Wal-Mart of bought an item from Miley Cyrus' clothing line... never thought i would. But since sooo many other bloggers have been saying good things about the clothes i had to take a look. Some of her other items were cute... i might make a trip back to wal-mart.

- Then i got my hair done after my little shopping trip..... it was super cute!! then i went out after work and it looked a hott frizzy mess =( Curls went bye-bye.

- I"m taking my graduation pictures soon! i cant wait!!

February Haul .... Better Late Than Never!

It never fails... every time i go to target, i always get more than what's on my lst. BUT this time I did get everything on my list.. plus a few other things AND I didn't use my credit card!! =) Here's a few items i bought:

*tan dress... I originally saw a dress like this one at Macys in early 2009 or 2008, but never found one in my size.... Thank You Target!!! =)

I LOVE Sally Henson polish... the bright/vibrant colors always look nice =)
And as winter is beginnning to leave [at least on the West Coast..] Target has all their swim suits out!!! Even more of a reason for me to hit the gym so i can buy a cute suit!! Can't let the apt. pool go to waste this summer!!

I L.O.V.E. Ross... and I L.O.V.E. XOXO bags!!! got this cute bag to use for school!

Workin' on my fitness

So in one month I'll be 24 ::gasps:: and I'm not happy with my lack of weight loss... Probably because I haven't been trying as hard as I should. There is really no excuse for me to not be working out since there is a Bally's half a mile [nice walking distance] from my apartment!!! A few weeks back I *considered* getting QuickTrim.. BUT read some reviews and most were negative. THEN i saw the price of  that stuff- $40!! Ummm nope thats tooo much, plus I highly doubt that Kim Kardashian even used that stuff, maybe Khole did, idk but deff not Kim she has like no weight to even try to lose!

So what I've decided to do for a little inspiration is this: I searched through some of my old issues of 17magazine... ripped out all the fold-out sections with work-out techniques and I plan on trying some of these, if not all, within the next month. So i've devised a plan of things i will & won't do to help myself get healthier and hopefuly lose some weight:
  1. No soda! I did this for my 101.. i just want to extend it to a long period of time... I know this is very much do-able.
  2. Less high-sodium foods... like Panda Express!! P.E. always sounds so yummy until I'm half way done eating it. =/
  3. Dare i say it..... no.. LESS chocolate! I really eat waaayyy too much chocolate candy... and i want that to end.... once i finish the York Peppermint candies i just bought yesterday ;)
  4. When in doubt I'll eat a salad! haha... so those long days at school when i start to crazy somethign thats totally unhealthy, i'll get a salad. Im sure the salads at places like Carls JR, El Pollo Loco and Subway aren't the healthiest.. but its a heck of a lot better that some chilli cheese fries. i'm sure.
  5. ... as i think of more bad things im going to cut back on I'll post it...
if you have any suggestions let me know!

natural hairstyle

So I've decided to help myself save some money and I'm going to try a few diff 'natural' hairstyles. I tried bantu knots about a month ago, then I decided to try the wavy/crinkly look.... Or as YouTubers call it... a 'braid out'. I'm not accustomed to trying to style my own hair, so forgive me if I say somthing that sounds off.. haha its all kinda new to me. I've always either gotten my hair done by someone I know [who's at the very least been to cosmotology school or has their liscense] OR I bursh in back to a ponytail [which I hate! lol]. So I'm trying to be way more self -sufficint in 2010!!

ummm... i dont need to ever pout my lips out! lmao they look HUGE!!! hahahaha

Stupid Nails!! GRRR

Soo the other day after work I bought these cute nails!!

I made an attempt to put them on yesterday and it was a disaster!!! I look at the box to realize I had picked up the WRONG size- I didn't even know there was diff sizes... Needless to say my nails aren't looking super cute right now. =/ what's worse is I had to cut my nail!! GRRR! they were finally getting long! oh well, I will search for the longer nails next time. I want to look cute in all aspects when i take my grad pics and of course when graduation gets here!

It allll started with The Ugly Truth that was a really cute movie.. and i adored him!.. More than anything his ACCENT! omg i love it! I love men w/ accents in general [mostly East Coast accients like any guy from Boston or NYC! lmao!] But back to the man of the hour... yea so I saw the movie, thought he was sooo adorably cute! Then I saw another movie he did [P.S. I Love You]... next thing I know I'm lookin up info on him and find out he's Scottish [that much i could tell-accent] and he's40 ::gasps:: umm didn't see that coming.. but 40... no biggie.. Will Smith is like 41 and I absoultely LOVE him! lol But I really want to see The Bounty Hunter.. it  looks like a funny movie. I feel a trip to the video store coming on [need to see Law Abiding Citizen  and Gamer] =) has anyone seen those last 2 movies? Were they any good? I'm sure Law Abiding Citizen is good, Jaime Fox is in it too!

Hunting for an Internship

I never knoew hunting for an internship could be so difficult.. maybe its just me, idk. I've found various internships in the entertainment and fashion fields but none of those are even slightly related to my majors.. which deals with Families and children. I did find 2 internships, but I want to find more just in case. The news had a small segment with some girl that has a website that helps college student look for interships. This got me in the mood to search for some since i ditched class. I did find another website that "helps" you look for an internship... but you have to pay $1,000!!! They must be out of their damn mind!!! I will look the old fashion way- ON MY OWN! A few interships before 2011 will do me some good... since only 1 out of my previous/current jobs is even related to my desired career field!
