Hair Cut ♥

So after months of experimenting with various hairstyles and finally found a salon that uses  a press comb [ their not too common down here for some reason]! I actually wanted my hair shorter BUT the length is fine for now. The cut was very much necessary! My poor hair has been to hell and back over the course of 2011 *sigh* and I vow to not dye it any more.... for a long time at least. and if i do want it dyed i'l be getting that done at a salon... no more hair-dying on my own

in this picture you can REALLY see how short it is

Healthy Eating.... Healthy Living

since moving to Texas in February I completely changed my eating habits... did a full 180!!! I cut out fast food, started cutting back on fried food and would bake my fish and chicken, cut back on red meats too!!! and on July 17 I made an attempt to go one week without eating any meat!! That one week has turned into close to 6wks!!!!! NEVER would I have thought I'd be able to do that! Sound crazy I'm sure, but meat [beef, pork, chicken] was always the staple of every meal. At 25 I want to live a healthier life!! Too many diseases run on both sides of my family and I DO NOT want to die in my 50s or 60s from something that can be prevented! So far I'm enjoying my vegetarian diet... learning to eat more fruits and salads to compensate for the meat i would usually eat.

in January I was 180 lbs.... in May I was between 155 and 160. Since I stopped eating meat I've gotten down to 148/150!!! 150lbs was always my target weight so I'm excited I was able to reach it!! When I started going to the gym, I met with a personal trainer and she swore I could get down to 140lbs.... I thought she was coo-coo ... but now i can totally do it! I just need to start working out again and I'll get there!! The more healthy meals I start making, I'll try to remember to take pictures and post them on the blog. Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Nails of the Summer

Im still here :-)

Hi girls!!! I know I've been MIA all summer. It was a very hectic/stressful summer :-( I finished my internship- got an A!!!! Didn't do so well in my anatomy class.... Have to take it again *tears* main bad thing about that is all the sections at the community college near me are FULL O_O. On top of that my living situation is close to unbearable but I don't have the money to move. Sooo as much as I hate to I'm thinking about putting off the anatomy class til the spring and work as much as I can now so I can move by January.

Aside from all that stress, I've been eating healthier!!! Went on a one week "no meat" diet and it turned into a month! As a result of the diet (and a little stress I'm sure) I'm down to 149/150 lbs!!! So I've reached my goal weight!! I haven't exercised much during the summer, but now that I have a little more free time I'm sure I can get down to 140. That's the weight the trainer at the gym felt I could get down to. I thought she was crazy, but now I see its possible!!

I can't wait to get back to doing posts, nails of the week, hauls, etc! When I find time I might change up the layout a bit! Hope all is well with u all. Ttyl!

MTV movie awards

*mobile post*
I only intended to watch the award show for 3 reasons: Trey Songz performing, Justin Timberlake presenting, and Breaking Dawn trailer. And just like typical MTV they spread that shit out.... Literally!! JT was the first presenter and I'm a little jealous of Mila Kunis cause well, who wouldn't wanna feel all on JT!?!? Haha but yea he's still cute in my eyes so I support him still.... Even when he refuses to put out a new album *eye roll*

Trey's performance with ______ ummm my mind just went blank so I don't remember dudes name BUT Trey's portion was nice, good energy and nice outfit ♥ but next year I need trey up there singin his own music!

I loved how the host cracked jokes on everybody! He definitely help the show not suck! Good choice MTV!

Breaking. Dawn. *speechless* *starts drooling at the thought* ahhhhhhhh it was nothing short of AMAZING! My best friend and I discussed it via BBM (and there's an hour time difference btwn us) and basically we got the trailer figured out. Now I'm a Team Jacob girl BUT I'm a little excited to see how the last book turns out considering it surrounds Bella and edward and their wedding...... I just hope (for Summit's sake) they stay true to Book 2!!! That's all Jacob's perspective and it would be nice to see how that plays out on the big screen!! All-in-all the rest of the show was a blur...lol

What did u girls think?

A little Twilight never hurt

So earlier today MTV and/or the official Twilight Twitter page posted a video... a super short 15sec video of the trailer for Breaking Dawn-Part 1 [the 4th and final book in the series; being broken into 2 films] I CAN NOT wait until June 5th.. I should set my DVR now.... but yea I am beyond excited for this film as I am a HUGE Twi-fan [Team Jacob 100%] ! This post is basically just to pass this video along to everyone else. Enjoy!

[Nails of the Week] 108 Degrees

I did ny nails eariler this week; used China Glaze 108 Degrees. I got this color with my ULTA order from a few weeks back. I didn't initially choose this color cause i already have a few pinks/reds/ polishes. But the names screamed "BUY ME" haha plus it kinda makes a Twilight reference and since I'm a fan of the wolves[ Team Jacob over here] I could not pass it up! My best friend laughed when I told her what it was called.... [[For those still confused on how it ties into the movie.... Jacob, the kids that turns into a wolf in New Moon, has a body temp of 108 degrees... hahha so yea]] But this color is really cute... its a red/pink mix with sparkles! I really like it!

Life Update

How are all my followers doing?! I'm sure many of you had/have finals coming up... good luck to those of you that do! I'll be taking classes this summer so I can FINALLY get my degree.. this has been the most time consuming experience ever but surprisingly I still want to go to graduate school next year.

I'm still adjusting to life in Texas.... I just recently found out [3 months after moving ugh] that there are buses down here.... their small shuttle buses but it will get me to my internship and school. Only downside is they don't run after like 5:30 pm [that's very retarded but whatever...] and my bio class will get out at 9:00pm sooo we'll see what happens with that.

Currently I'm debating on whether or not to get a 2ns job. The place I'm working now I get about 35+ hours but once my classes start I'll be available fewer days and I still will have the same amount to pay for my lovely bills and the last thing I need right now is to get behind on payments because I'm trying to improve my credit [ and credit it what will help me get a car and my own apartment next year]. Its so frustrating when I look back and think of the things I could have done differently, but I know I can't dwell on those cause it will only prevent me from moving forward.

Besides what I already mentioned, things are going okay... I'm sure my best friend will tell you I complain about everything but I guess that's a part of adjusting to grown up life. Its always been hard for me to adapt to new or sudden change and its gets no more "new or sudden" than what I've gone through the last 4 months. But I know in the end its only making me stronger, so that's good =)

And with that I hope you all have a productive week!

My first ULTA order ♥

From reading blogs and watching countless YouTube videos I've learned about a few different products that are pretty popular. China Glaze and OPI are usually the top 2 nail polish brands I hear about and until now I never owned any! But i saw a coupon in a sunday paper for the ULTA.com and couldnt help buy check out the site and order some stuff. I got 3 China Glaze polishes and 2 NYX lipsticks

[l-r] Admire, 108 Degrees, Peachy Keen

I wore Peachy Keen first, but didn't take any pics of it.
Its a cute color... almost like a bright neon yellow-orange mix,
but not soo neon... if that even makes sense.

This week I'm wearing Admire; its a metallic purple- super cute

NYX lipstick #621- Milan  #603-tea

[ Nails of the week ]

Last weekend I was in the mall and stumbled across a little store that sold OPI polish! Lucky for me this store had the Shatter collection and the Texas collection! I picked up the Black Shatter and Guy Meets Gal-veston of the Texas collection. Its a cute pink shade... which is perfect as I actually lived in Galveston when i was a kid. I also picked up a Sally Hansen color I saw on ULTA.com but they were sold out. Soo glad Wal-mart had it!!

Hard to believe that I'm 25 today [ahhhhh] It's a little weird with my mom not being here. I didn't really do much this past weekend... Got my hair done Friday then had dinner with my dad & sisters and nieces/nephews on Friday.. Fam Reunion was Saturday [didn't get to go out Sat. night =( ] then on Sunday went to church and saw Scream 4 [which was really good!!!] I had a good time with my fam! As a birthday present to myself I ordered a new laptop [yay!!!] It has more memory than my other one, was much cheaper AND has a webcam! It should come sometime this week.. can't wait! Also I ordered season 5 of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and the new Twilight Encyclopedia book from Borders.com! And if you know me you would know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Will Smith and Twilight sooo I'm loving the gifts I got myself =)

i have seasons 1-4.. searched high and low for this!! And season 6 comes out tomorrow. i will be ordering it later in the week when Borders sends me a coupon lol

this inside of this book is freaking adorable!!! Tons of detailed drawings and info on each and every character of the series... its a must have for every Twilight fan!

Recent Shopping Trip... [pic heavy]

There is nothing like a little retail therapy to make any girl feel better! Earlier this week and about 2 weeks ago I did a little shopping... got things that I needed [ church dresses, bathing suit] and some cute summer clothes and accessories ...

... clothes ...
blue and white/cream strip dress.. its almost like a
zebra print pattern [which i LOVE]
this dress is knee length but you can't really tell from this picture

A cute and simple button up white shirt

this is a stripped tank; lime green -n- grey

wine color dress... perfect for church

zebra wallet ♥ I could not
pass this baby up when I saw it at walmart

floral print tank- Target

zebra print swimsuit [AHHHHH =)]
its a cute olive color 

This is the first maxi dress I've ever owned (a little shocking I know)
cute short-shorts. didn't realize it until my sister-n-law
pointed it out but these shorts match the floral tank

 ... make-up ...
The green palette is the first wet-n-wild eye shadow I've used.
I LOVE these Revlon creme palettes

... Accessories...
the flowers are teal color I found a ring in the same color

I LOVE silver jewelry and roses soo this
was the perfect combo

 found this at Kohl's; wore it when I
went to a 'tea' event at church

matches the above earrings

these rings came as a set

so that's the result of a few shopping ventures I've made in the last month... no more until like June or July! LOL

Sally Hansen Salon Effects ♥

Way back in December I purchased the  Sally Hansen Salon Effects polish strips! If y'all don't know what this is I'll explain. Its basically strips of nail polish that you put on your nails to achieve a funky look without spending $40 at a nail salon! The day we got these in I bought a pack. I've listed my pros and cons to this product and some pictures. I used the #360 "Laced Up" set

... I LIKE ...
-the funky styles of the polish strips are super cute and different than your everyday polish
-i don't have to layer 2 and 3 coats of polish!
-not too expensive: at CVS its $10, [since moving I've noticed Wal-Mart has them for less!!]

... I DON'T LIKE ...
-not all the strips fit my nails
-some of the polish strips make little dents. not noticeable to others,
-you only get 16 polish strips so you can really only use the one box once =(

*I used these strips on fake nails so they may have fit better on my natural nails...

Have any of you tried these nail strips? I think about brand makes them too but i don't remember which brand.....

Past "Nails of theWeek"

I've been super slacking on my blogging BUT that doesn't mean I've been slacking on my beauty routines ;-) Over the last few months I've been trying out various nail designs and color combos. Below are some of the ways I wore my nails

Wet & Wild- Sparkled

 Sally Hansen- #16; Blue It
