All Things Beauty with Skye giveaway

I've been following this blog forever and I dont know how I missed hearing about her givaway eariler!! But never the less, Skye [All Things Beauty with Skye]is having a giveaway! The nail polish thats featured in the contest looks amazing!! Good luck to those who enter!!

*the above image is NOT mine. All rights belong to Skye @

100 % natural... for a year??

So i just recently turned 24 [YAY] and i've decided to make a drastic hair change.... I will attempt to "go natural" for a year  a while... I currently do not get relaxers.... haven't had one in over 5 years! But I want to try something different with my hair. This may seem crazy, but a few weeks back as I was washing and conditioning my hair, I noticed it had this cute lil curl effect going on.. So i thought it would be cute if i rocked out a natural style for a while. Maybe i won't go natural for a full year, but i will try for a long a possible. However, i wont be rocking a natural look for graduation... hehe want to look extra cute for that day! =)

Guitar Lessons

When I was 9 I wanted a drum set. Still not sure why, but I was a random child. When I was 10 I taught myself how to play "Jingle Bells" on a [piano-type] keyboard. Now at 24, I want to learn how to play a guitar. Seems weird? One of my friends thought so.... but whatevs. I figure its never too late to start something new, and with me graduating soon [ahhh its scary] I need new hobbies.
So I bought a Fender guitar about 2 weeks ago and slowly but surely I will learn to play!!! I'll keep you all posted on my progress

My Music - recent downloads

To go along with the new weekly blog post here are some songs I've recently downloaded and keep listening to

1. "Winner" by Jaime Foxx F/ J. Timberlake & T.I.
2. "Live Like You're Dying"  -- Kris Allen
3. " All The Right Moves" - OneRepublic
4. "In My Head" -- Jason DeRulo

Random Realization

So I was looking over the list of blogs I follow... Apparently I follow 45 blogs?!?!?! ummm I truely think I only read like 10! Soooo I'm shifting through the ones I dont read and unfollowing! Sorries to those bloggers :-/ Its clear that I got way caught up into blogger and when "follow" happy... maybe because I was hoping they would follow my blog? but thats never a good reason to follow a blog. Has anyone else done this?!? Am I alone on this topic, I'm sure that can't be true!

Health Goal: No chocolate for a week

OMG! Me?? No chocolate?? Had someone told me a month ago that I would go a week w/o any chocolate I would've called them crazy! ESPECiALLY since one of those days in the week was my birthday!! Every year for as long as I can emember I've gotten a German Chocolate cake.. but not this year! I got Red Velvet Cupcakes bestie made them!!! And those things are!! lmao!

Im sure some of you are thinking "Whats the big deal about not eating chocolate?" Well trust me, its a HUGE deal!! I eat chocolate like a alcoholic drinks on a regular/daily basis! It was at the point where I would unconsciencely by chocolate [like M&Ms, chocolate chip cookies, hershey's] anytime I needed a snack.. I've been eating chocolate everything since I was a little kid [had to have CHOCOLATE pop-tarts rather than any other kind.. only ate Chip Ahoy! cookies!]. why I wouldn't by healthier things is beyond me. But for this past week I literally was fully aware of what I bought! Ate more salads and fruit... didn't have too much fried food either. Hopefully I can contimue to eat healther!!

... Whats the hype of the 20th day of April ...

So I was lookin at a few blogs I follow that mentioned April 20th and its 'unofficial' celebration of sorts. That got me thinking: what is the hype behind 4/20... who started this and why?!?! How is it that on this one day of the year ppl openly [or maybe not too openly] smoke weed/marajiana/ pot [whichever u call it] and the police are oblivious or don't care... maybe im just confused because i don't smoke... Anyone know whats the whole day about??

Concerts that are a MUST!

I love going to concerts but i havent been able to go to any so far this yea. And there's been quite a few tours i've wanted to see [Timbaland, Trey Songz, Mariah, T. Swift... etc] So with summer approaching theres definitely a few shows I REALLY want to see!!!

1. Kings of Leon.... I like a few of their songs and I havent been to a 'rock/alternative' concert before... and theres not time like the present to change that! lol

2. Backstreet Boys- yea u read that right!! *IF* I get tix to this tour it'll only be my 4th time seeing them [after 12 yrs... so 4 ain't a lot!]! Although I like *NSYNC a little bit more, I've lost hope on that *NSYNC reunion =(... Plus I still got love for BSB and I actually liked their last album!

this might be the '2000' version of them...
the 2010 version does not include Kevin (the tall one in the middle) lol

3. Rihanna -- if it wasn't for Twitter I probably wouldnt have known that she was touring! Luckily tix for the LA show haven't gone on sale... soooo theres some small amount of hope that I'll be seeing Rihanna on tour! But not looking forward to Ke$ha.....

*Are there any tour y'all are looking forward to? Did I miss any good shows that are coming up?!

Birthday Wish List

So I'm almost 24 [OMG, right???] and i'm kinda beyond the point of really "wanting" gifts. I always tell people to get me gift cards or money if anything. And since I've have to prepare for graduation and all the expenses that go along with that, theres not much I'm asking for. The main thing that I do want is a guitar [still..] haha Target had some 50% off!!! It was $75!!! I hope the Target stores close to my home have it!

Surprisingly, this is the only thing i REALLY want... no clothes, no makeup.. Although it would be nice to get Justin Timberlae or Kellan Lutz, or Trey Songz in a box.. but since that would happen.. the guitar will do =]

Natural Styles

So I tried Flat Twist. It didn't come out too bad... I like! Here are a few pics from how i had my hair



.. I have no wods for this ...

Speechless!! Why? look below. (WARNING: pictures may cause excessive dooling and possible fainting)

Thank you God for creating this fine man!!! Amen!

The Tattoo Itch

No I didn't get a new tat.. not yet at least. BUT I do want one!!! I hae 3 already and #4 and #5 are already picked out. Its just a matter of when I will get them. The next tat I get would've been #5 (angel wings and halo)but I was really inspired when I went down to New Orleans for spring break! The only thing standing in the way me getting my next tat is the location. I have one spot kind of picked out but I'm not sure how it will look =/ But at least I have 2 weeks to map this out.. want to get it for my birthday before my ID expires on me! hahaa

*Do any of you have tattoos??
