Blogging Break.

I know I haven't been blogging much this week, I've been crazy busy. I'm taking this math course and it's the last class I need to take before recieving my Associates..YAY, but I totally suck at math so it's been really hard for me and I have to study, study, study like mad! Also, I've  been doing a lot of 'fall' cleaning and organzing before the holidays so all I have to do is focus on my schooling and cooking for the holidays. My family is coming to visit for Thanksgiving and they'll be here on Tuesday for a whole week!

Again, I'm sorry I haven't been blogging and I won't be blogging much for the next week or two. As soon as things get settled and I'm back on track I'll be back to blogging!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday break!

Now You Know Me.

It's time to for another round of 'Now You Know Me'. If your new, here's how you play. Every Monday, I am going to answer eight random questions so you guys can get to know me better. All I ask is that you answer the questions as well! Either put your answers in the comments or link your post answering these questions in the comments so I can get to know you guys better too! So let's jump in...

The Questions
1. If you had $500,000,000 to spend on plastic surgery, what would you have done?
2. Do you watch soap operas? If so, what is your favorite and why?
3. Favorite clothing brand?
4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year?
5. Would you ever vajazzie?
6. Favorite disney princess?
7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out?
8. Have you ever broken any bones? If so, which ones?

The Answers

1. If you had $500,000,000 to spend on plastic surgery, what would you have done?
I could have a billion dollars, but if I don't need any plastic surgery I'm not going to get it done. I am a firm believer though in the 'Mommy Makeover'. 

2. Do you watch soap operas? If so, what is your favorite and why?
No I don't watch any, but I do watch Beverly Hills, 90210 on the Soap Network.

3. Favorite clothing brand?
This is a tough one because I don't really buy clothes based on brands. I do a lot of my shopping at Ross and they have all kinds of brands so I don't really have a favorite brand. Well, I do usually wear only Abercrombie jeans because I find they fit me the best.

4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year?
Definitely a shopping spree, I don't mind cleaning!

5. Would you ever vajazzie?
No way, not my style. Haha.

6. Favorite disney princess?
It's a toss up between Princess Jasmine and Belle.

7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out?
Hmm, I think I cried when I watched When Harry Met Sally the other week.

8. Have you ever broken any bones? If so, which ones?
I've never fully broken a bone, but I did crack my wrist snowboarding one time.

The Perfect Imperfections Tag

I've seen two YouTube beauty gurus, QueenBeeuty and Andrea's Choice do this tag and I thought this was such a good idea. No one's perfect and I know everyone has those crazy flaws about themselves that no one else seems to see. I know I do. In this tag I am going to tell you three flaws that I hate and than follow up with three things I really like about myself. I wasn't sure how I wanted to go about this tag, focusing on the physical flaws I see or the personality flaws. While I have physical insecurities I know that looks isn't always what it's about. So I thought I would break it into two sections, one physical and one personality. 


1. My Man Hands! Go ahead and laugh but my hands are not girly at all. My fingers are short, my nail beds are short and wide, my knuckles are very wrinkly. I just totally dislike my hands so much!

2. Sicilian Hair! I have very dark, coarse hair on my arms and legs. If I don't wax or shave regularly than I would look like a gorilla, haha.

3. Right Eye! My right is more droopy, and a borderline lazy eye. Everything about my right is off. My eyebrow arch isn't as high as my left, my eyelid sags a little more, etc.


1. Dark Olive Skin Tone! Yay for always having a perfect tan!

2. Great Assets! I am very pleased with my chest and booty size.

3. Muscle Tone! I love how I have a athletic body type without being too muscle-ee.


1. Jealousy Issues. I do not like how jealous I can get, it doesn't even have to be over a relationship.

2. Insecure. I am uber insecure. I wish I were more independent, brave, etc.

3. Needy. I am a very needy person. I have not excepted that it is okay to be alone.


1. Girl Meets Boy. I love that I can be relaxed and hang with the boys, not afriad to get dirty, but that I also like getting dressed up, wearing cute clothes. I like to say that I'm the first to get into the mud pen but I'll be wearing my heels!

2. Caring. I think I am a really caring person. I will always put others before my self because making someone else happy makes me happy.

3. Organized Freak. I love that I am very organized!

iPod Loves.

I was going to blog about what music has been being played over and over on my iPod, but I kind of already talked about that in my Four. blog post so I thought I would do something a little different and tell you guys what is on my cleaning mix. 

When I clean I love to put some good tunes on to keep my mind off of the work I am doing. I listen to a little bit of everything; ballads, rock, hip-hop, love songs, etc. So here is what is on my 'Cleaning Playlist'.

1. I Never Told You by Colbie Cailat
2. Shove It by Santigold
3. Don't Trust Me by Tupac
4. Jar Of Hearts by Christina Perry
5. Back Against The Wall by Cage The Elephant
6. Badfish by Sublime
7. Warm Machine by Bush
8. Before It's Too Late by The Goo Goo Dolls
9. Black & Gold by Katy Perry
10. Glory Box by Portishead
11. Here Comes Your Man by The Pixies
12. Beast Of Burden by The Rolling Stones
13. This Woman's Work by Kate Bush
14. Survival Of The Fittest by Mobb Deep
15. Help, I'm Alive by Metric

What do you like to listen to when you clean?


I knew this week was going to be kind of busy so I wrote up all of the week's blog post and drafted them so all I had to do was press 'Publish Post' on the day I wanted them to be posted on. Well, my schedule got the best of me and I totally failed at posted some blog post. Sorry. I'm going to post Thursday's 'iPod Loves' post of the week and also a tag post. I hope everyone had a great week!

My Workout Routine

Current Workout Routine:
Since I took off a couple months of working out to get back into a routine and build my strength up again, I am going to start off with full body workouts three days a week, alternating days. On the in between days I will be doing cardio and a light activity. The other two days that are left are off days or optional cardio days. Here's how I break down my workout routine:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Workout Day
Tuesday, Thursday: Cardio Day, Light Activity
Saturday, Sunday: Optional Cardio Day, Off Day

Fitness Sources:
Before I do a day-by-day breakdown of my workout routine, I wanted to give you guys some sources that will help you get started. I use these these sources as well as my personal knowledge of fitness to put together my fitness routines.

BodyRock TV has great at home workouts that use mainly body weight. This site also offers diet tips and fitness advice.

Bodybuilding.Com offers a plethora of different workout routines, fitness and diet advice, and many great articles that are related to fitness.

Oxygen Magazine is a fun way to learn about different fitness routines, and other women in the fitness world.

Muscle & Fitness Hers is probably my favorite fitness magazine. It also gives you information regarding everything fitness.

Workout Routine:
*If you don't know what these exercises are you can look them up on Bodybuilding.Com

Monday, Wednesday, Friday
7AM -  Full Body Workouts that consist of 12-15 reps for 5 sets of the following exercises; side shoulder raises, bent-over back raises, skull-crushers, flat bench chest press, and hammer curls. I pick one weight that I can perform all these exercises with and I do each exercise back to back with lunges in between each one than I rest. Than repeat for five more sets. This workout lasts anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

8AM - Morning Cardio: I follow my morning workout with an hour of cardio. I usually do a combination of running at 5.5 mph and walking at 4.0 mph.

6PM - Evening Cardio: For my evening cardio I walk for 45 minutes.

Tuesday, Thursday
7AM - For my workout I want to give my body time to recover from the previous day so I usually do some kind of a light activity, whether it be yoga, pilates, or heavy stretching. If I do yoga or pilates it will last about 30 minutes. If I decide to stretch, it will last about 15 minutes.

7:30AM - Morning Cardio: I do a combination of running at 5.5 mph and walking at 4.0 mph.

6PM - Evening Cardio: For my evening cardio I walk for 45 minutes.

Saturday, Sunday
I don't have any set time that I workout or do cardio. I usually leave these days for relaxing and if I feel like going to the gym than I'll just do cardio, similar to my evening cardio. I'll also skip out on cardio these days if I am doing something outdoorsy like hiking, snowboarding, festivals, etc.

What do you do for your fitness routine?

Product Review: OPI Ski Teal We Drop Nail Polish

I purchases OPI's Ski Teal We Drop about three months. I've used it occasionally, I'd say probably once a month. Overall, I think it is a beautiful nail polish color, and I rate it a 8/10.

OPI Ski Teal We Drop Nail Polish

Stays on, with no chips for a good 5 almost 6 days.
Not clumpy
Good size handle, easy to use
Brush is smooth and glides softly

Hard to clean off, kind of stains
Too dark for me (I prefer more natural colors, but I'd thought I'd try some color)

What are some of your favorite nail polishes?

Italian Fish & Veggie Pockets Recipe

Italian Fish And Veggie Pockets

I got this recipe from Everyday Italian from the Food Network. I make it with salmon though and it is delicous! Also, I love visiting the blog, Favorite Family Recipes It has so many great recipes that are really easy to do but make a great impression. Here's the recipe.


  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
  • 1 1/2 pounds sugar snap peas, stemmed
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 (4-ounce) trout fillets, skinned (or other fish about 1/2-inch thick)
  • 8 thin slices lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped mint leaves


Special equipment: 4 large sheets of aluminum foil or parchment paper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl mix together the lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
Lay out the 4 sheets of aluminum foil. Place 1/4 of the sugar snap peas, 1/4 of the yellow bell peppers, and 1/4 of the orange bell peppers on each sheet of foil. Over each pile of vegetables drizzle 2 tablespoons of white wine, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and gently toss.
Top each pile of seasoned vegetables with a piece of fish. Sprinkle the fish with some of the reserved lemon zest mixture. Top each fish with 2 slices of lemon.
Fold up the foil into an air-tight packet. Place the foil packets in the oven and bake for 15 to 18 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. Sprinkle the fish with mint just before serving.

October Favorites!

Um, its November?!? When did this happen, haha?!? In my past blogs, I have been doing a series called, 'I'm Obsessed With.' In these posts I blog about products, television shows, websites, books/magazines, misc items that I have been obsessed with. I decided that I am no longer going to be doing this series but instead I will be doing a monthly favorites. The context will be the same as I will be blogging about items that I used a lot, were obsessed with, and/or really were loving, except it will be for that month specific. I wasn't sure if I should do mini product reviews when I talk about my favorites of the month or just simple post about what I was obssessed with. I think what I will do is talk about my monthly favorites, but than do product reviews on each of the things I talked about. What better way to start this new series but with a monthly favorites blog post for October! Yay!

Here are a few things I have been obsessed with over this last month...


Victoria Beckham Intimately Perfume For Her
Looooove this perfume! I get so many compliments when I wear this, it smells so good! Now, I've never really been fond of celebrity fragrances and I wasn't really into this one at first. I got it a two christmas' ago and smelt it once but didn't really think anything of it. I just recently brought it out from my makeup storage and I am so happy I did. I can go on and on about this product so maybe I will do a product review.

CoverGirl Lash Blast Length Mascara
Okay, I know I mention this product in like every blog post regarding my favorite items or most used items, but thats how much I love it! I have a product review on this mascara and I'm sure you guys are sick of hearing about this so I'll just leave it at this.

Revlon Perfect Heat 1' Curling Iron
I watched a documentary on Taylor Swift and I loved how she styled her hair throughout the video. I love how she embraces her natural curls and does so many cute hairstyles. I also found the fact that she styled her own hair when she was on her Fearless tour by herself. I thought, 'well maybe I can style my hair like hers'. I brought my revlon curling iron out of storage and have been messing around with it. I like how it makes my curls defined.


Gray/Black Animal Print Scarf
The weather here has been changing and it is getting colder every day. I've been wearing this lightweight, thick animal print scarf. It's not super thick so I can still wear it during the warmer days, but if I pair it with a great jacket and long sleeve, it keeps me warm

Handbag Heaven's Double Danielle Satchel
I just recently purchased this handbag and I love it! I love how you get three bags in one! It can be a satchel, shoulder bag, and a cross-body bag. it has three different pockets, cellphone and misc side pockets, and it comes in two beautiful colors! I wanted to get both, but I settled with black.


I've been baking like crazy. Homemade everything! Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cupcakes with milk chocolate frosting, cinnamon rolls, etc. 

Working Out
I took a little break from working out and I just got back into it! I'm so happy I am too. I feel better and look better when I work out.

I'd love to know what your favorites were in the month of October.

Now You Know Me...

It's my last week in class this week so I have two finals to take. Wish me luck!!

Question & Answer:
What is your definition of sexy? 
I believe a person is sexy when they can just be their complete self. I know I feel sexiest when I'm comfortable and just being goofy with my boyfriend.

Would you rather clean up puke or change a poopy diaper? 
Eww, both are gross but I'd rather change a poopy diaper.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I'm an introvert I guess because I do love to spend time by myself, but I'm also really friendly and outgoing and love spending time with other people so I guess I'm both.

If you had to give up one of your five senses for a year, which one would you give up?
Ooh, this is tough. I think I would give up my taste sense.

Cake or pie? Definitely cake. Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting to be exact.

If you could play any character on TV, who would you play?
I would play Buffy.

My favorite website is?
Oh weird, I was actually going to do a blog post on all my favorite websites in just a few days. I think I visit YouTube the most, but besides that I love the website People.

The highlight of my day is?
Well my day just got started so nothing so far, but the highlight of yesterdays day was having my boyfriend come home safely from work.

*I know I've been saying I'm going to be redoing my blog but I really am... right after my finals. So look forward to that!*

*Warning: Random Blog Post.. Has Really No Point Or Specific Message*

- I'm writing this blog as I'm watching the Project Runway Season 8 Finale on my TiVo. I've been pretty addicted to this show. If your also a fan you'll know that Gretchen, Mondo, and Andy are the finale three. I think that Mondo is going to win, but I'm hoping for Andy. I would be happier if either Mondo or Andy win. Watching this show this season has really got me wanting to get back into sewing. Since I've been out of school, I don't really sew much and I've really missed it. Right now though the boyfriend and I are working on setting our place up. Slowly, ha. We don't have much furniture. Ya know though, that's okay. I like the rawness of our place. It's our first home together, err this is our second apartment together but nothings really changed from the first except were in a large place now. I love the nights when the boyfriend and I eat our dinners on the living room floor because we don't have a dining room table. And the lazy days where we watch television and be goofy. These are the moments that I will forever cherish and do not take for granted.

- I was at Walmart today and I saw a girl that was wearing a dress that I have also have. She looked so cute and just simple, but very put together. Her look was a: yellow stretch, 3/4 length sleeve, tight dress with black leggings and knee high brown boots, complimented with a beige satchel (which I own as well). So I tried to recreate this look... total FAIL. I don't know why it just didn't look cute on me, haha.

- Oooh, Project Runway is getting good!

- What are my plans for tomorrow? Gym time at about 7. Cook steak and egg omelet for the boyfriend in the morning, than sleep till whenever. Cook dinner for the boyfriend while he's working out. Than crave pumpkin with the boyfriend. Than sleep till the boyfriend has to go to work. Busy, busy.

- Going to take a break from blogging so I can work on a homework assignment and watch the three Project Runway designers collections go down the runway. Be back soon....

- Ok, I'm back. I just finished watching each designers collection so here's what I thought.
Gretchen: It was nice, and just okay for me. It wasn't my style, but I think a lot of girls would wearing her collection. She could win though after seeing the others collection.
Andy: As much as I want Andy to win, I just don't think his collection had it. I wasn't really fond of any piece in particular. I guess I was just a little bored. I'm still hoping he'll win though.
Mondo: Not my style, but loved it! Mondo really has that star quality. Again though, I'm not sure I would really wear any of his pieces.
We'll see who wins soon.

- By the way, you can hate on me for saying this but its just my opinion... I think Jessica Simpson looked so much better when she was thinner. Not to mention she was probably healthier too.

- And the winner of Project Runway Season 8 is.... Gretchen. Hmm, this has happened to me with all the contest based shows I've been watching this year (The Next Food Network Star, ANTM, etc.) The person I want to win, never does. Haha. Maybe I'm jinxing them.

Sorry this blog post was soooo random. I'm going to do a 'Now You Know Me' post next.

Well, I've received a lot of great gifts, but my favorite gift (which it really wasn't even a gift, just a random thought), but this one day my boyfriend wrote a sweet, 'I Love You' note and hide it so I would randomly find it one day. I loved it!

Yes, two cats here with me and the boyfriend and one cat at home with the family!

Rough Day...

Ugh, today was just one of those days, ya know. I didn't get anything done that I wanted to, I'm tired, don't feel pretty, just needed someone to give me a hug and tell me they love me.


Tomorrow's a new day. Actually tomorrow is the day I've been waiting to come this whole week. I'll be traveling to Arizona to visit family and take a little vacay! Can't wait! Nothing is better than taking a road trip with my boyfriend, throwing on the iPod, and road trip munchies! Also, getting away from the city and coming to the fresh air of the mountains is perfection!

What are your favorite road trip munchies?

Now You Know Me...

I have a busy week ahead of me so I thought I would knock out this weeks 'Now You Know Me' right on the dot.

Thong Or Granny Panties?
Thongs over granny panties, but I prefer booty shorts/hot shorts.

If You See A Guy With His Fly Down, Do You Tell Him?
Depends... If I know him or he's an acquaintance than yes. If he's a stranger, no I wouldn't.

Spanx Or No Spanx?
For me at this moment in my life, no, don't need them. However, if I need them later on, than yes.

Do You Sleep In Under Or Over Your Sheets?
I don't have sheets on my bed as the moment, but ironically, my boyfriend and I were just talking about getting a new bed set. So when we do, I'll be sleeping under my sheets.

What/Who Is Your Favorite Disney Character?
Hands down, Bella from Beauty And The Beast.

Dream Vacation Spot?
St. Tropez! It's a beautiful place!

What Is Your Dream Job?
Hmm, either being an english professor at a community college or a buyer for a major store.

Who Is Your Hero And Why?
I don't have anyone in particular because I learn and take inspiration from a lot of different people in my life. My father, mother, brothers, and boyfriend have all made me a better person!

Product Review: Tresemme Flawless Curl System

Product: Tresemme Flawless Curl Shampoo, Tresemme Flawless Curl Conditioner, Tresemme Flawless Curl Mousse

I have been using the tresemme flawless curl shampoo and conditioner for about month now and I talk about it in my 'I'm Obsessed With' post this last Friday. However, just today I realized that, well, I don't really like it. My hair is dry and brittle. When I use the shampoo, I have to use quite a bit for my hair to feel washed. The conditioner did not moisturize my hair at all. The price for both the shampoo and conditioner came to about $9 at walmart.

I have used the tresemme flawless curl mousse on and off for the last couple of years now. I like it, but I'm still trying to find a good mousse. It works and holds my curls pretty well without making them crunchy or hard, but by the end of the day my curls are usually falling. I can't remember the price of this product, but I don't think it was too much.

PROS (Shampoo/Conditioner):
Good price

CONS (Shampoo/Conditioner):
Leaves hair dry and brittle
Doesn't moisturize

PROS (Mousse):
Holds Curl
Doesn't make it crunchy/hard

Tresemme Flawless Curl Shampoo: 2/10
Tresemme Flawless Curl Conditioner: 1/10
Tresemme Flawless Curl Mousse: 8/10

Now You Know Me

The Questions And The Answers.

1. What Year Did You Graduate High School?
I graduated high school two years early, so 2006.

2. What Part Of Your Body Do You Neglect The Most?
Hmm, probably my brain. I don't challenge it enough.

3. Beach House Or Lake House?
This is tough because I love the beach, but there's something so relaxing and calming about being by a  lake. I would probably say a lake house.

4. Mac Or PC?
I have both a Mac and a PC. I use my Mac for music, photos, videos, etc. I use my PC for school or important stuff. I really like both and I really hate both, haha. I think that a PC would be a better choice only by a little bit just because its more commonly used and more compatible with things.

5. Did You Wear Braces?
Fortunely, I never had to have braces.

6. If You Could Be One Person For A Day.. Living Or Deceased .. Who Would You Be?
Um, I would kind of want to see what it would be like to be a guy, probably a celebrity like Ryan Reynolds or Brad Pitt.

7. How Many Times Have You Moved In Your Life?
Out of state just once. In my home state, just once too.

8. Would You Rather Cook Or Clean?
I would much rather cook. I love cooking, I'm a newbie to the kitchen but I have been loving making meals and seeing my boyfriend eat it and actually like it!

Have a beautiful day!
