30 Day Challenge...

I've been watching a lot of cute YouTube videos and one that has really caught my interest were the 30 Day challenge videos. In these series of videos, youtubers make one video discussing whatever topic it happens to be for the day. For example Day 19 - A talent of yours, I would discuss a talent of mine. I thought this would be fun and give me something to blog about so I'll probably start this on Thursday, maybe Friday, sometime soon though.

Anyways, its my boyfriends day off today so we're just going to be hanging out and relaxing all day.

Have a wonderful day!

My Love For Music...

I love music. Period. I'm not quite sure what I would do if music wasn't in my life. Music makes everything situation better. If you have a bad day, music could pick you up. If you need a good tune to clean the house to, music will provide you with that. If you want something to shake your booty to, music there's. I just have such an appreciation for music and all that it gives me!

There isn't any one genre of music that I like. I pretty much listen to whatever I'm in the mood for. I guess if I HAD to narrow my music taste down to one genre it would be like grunge alternative, like Bush, Nirvana, Live, etc.

Here's a list of my top ten songs that are on repeat on my iPod...

1. Glycerine by Bush
2. Closer by Kings Of Leon
3. Starstruck by Santigold
4. Glory Box by Portishead
5. The Dolphin's Cry by Live
6. Islands by The xx
7. Pardon Me by Incubus
8. Flake by Jack Johnson
9. Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana
10. The Hand That Feeds by Nine Inch Nails

Check out these songs, their great!

Diet Time. Consistent Workouts.

Those are two things that I need to work on and make a priority. I'm a personal trainer and while I am in okay shape, I'm far from my goal weight/shape. I did a fitness/figure competition about 2 years ago and I loved the shape I was in than. I'm about 10-15lbs heavier now and just don't feel my best. I not only try to diet and workout to be in shape, but to be healthy as well. Also, I don't like to call it a 'diet' because I being 'in shape' or 'healthy' isn't something you can just stop working at. You have to always be working towards a fitness goal so your always improving your health and body. It's more of a lifestyle than a fad or trend you do for a little while. I'm excited though to get back in shape and start feeling better!

I'll keep you guys updated and in a couple of days I'll post my workout/diet routines!

P.S. As of right now my stats are: 120lbs, no muscle definition

*Also, I usually don't go by what the scale says because the more you workout the more muscle you'll gain and muscle weights more than fat so you might be getting healthier and more in shape and actually gain weight, so yeah.

Test Post...

I'm trying to make my blog super cute, but its not easy. Haha, I have found a pretty cute site; TheCutestBlogOnTheBlock so I'm just trying out new fonts/layouts/colors, etc... Hopefully you guys will enjoy the final out come!

New Handbag!!!

Yesterday I bought this handbag from HandbagHeaven.com!!! I'm so excited because a couple of years ago I bought it in the mustard color and loved it so much that I wanted another one in a different color but I couldn't find it anywhere! I stumbled upon HandbagHeaven from a youtube video I watched and found this bag! I'm so excited! It's the Classic Secret Agent Bag in black. I'll do a product review in a couple days about this bag and a few of my other favorites or not so favorites.

8 Most Worn Items...

I wanted to do this tag that has been going around on blogger/youtube because I really enjoy seeing what other people's most worn items are so yeah. Enjoy!

1. Most Worn Lipstick/Lipgloss.

I actually don't wear any lipsticks or lipgloss in general. Honestly, I do really wear any
makeup period except for mascara. I do wear chapstick from Burt's Bees like everyday because I like how it moisturizes my lips, but other than that I don't really wear any lip products.

2. Most Worn Earrings.

Well I always wear little diamond studs in my ears, but other than
that my most worn earrings would be Filigree Foliate earrings from Forever 21. I have them both in silver and gold so it just depends on whatever outfit I'm wearing that day. These earrings work with everything from casual outfits to dressy casual to a full blown night out outfit. I LOVE them.

3. Most Worn Shirt.

I don't really have a most worn shirt that is for like outings. Like, I always the Men's Hanes V-Neck White Tee's a lot when I'm lounging around the house. There so comfy and I love them! For like actually getting dressed, I guess I would say that my most worn shirt would be a black racerback tank. It's so simple and goes with everything! I think I got my favorite one from Ross.

4. Most Worn Nail Polish.
I love the nail polish from OPI; Coney Island Cotton Candy. I don't usually change up my nail polish color at all because I love this color! It's natural but not boring and pretty much goes with whatever I'm wearing. It's like a pinkish nude. Love it!

5. Most Worn Shoes.

I'll do this for two types of shoes; dressy and casual shoes. My most worn dressy shoes is the Jessica Simpson Frida wedges in black. These are so comfy and so cute! My most worn casual shoes are these Coach sandals. I forget the name of the actual shoe, but I love these!

6. Most Worn Hair Product.
I have naturally curly hair so I use a lot of different products in my hair daily. I'll do another blog post on my hair routine later. If I had to choose my most worn hair product, it would probably be my Tresemme Ultra Fine Mist hairspray. It gives a great hold, but doesn't leave any white flakes in my hair or make my hair crunchy.

7. Most Worn Perfume.
This was tough for me because I have my all time absolute favorite perfume which is Magnetism by Escada, but right now I've actually been wearing Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla perfume a lot. What I usually do is wear my Escada for night and my B&B for day time.

8. Most Worn Handbag/Purse.

There are two items that I splurge on and love to have a lot different styles and types and that is handbags and shoes. I'm always changing up my handbag to whatever I'm wearing, but my favorite most worn handbag would probably be
