10 Things I hate about me

So I know this isn’t very good thing to do, you have to love yourself, think highly of yourself and if there’s something you don’t like you change it…Blah, Blah, Blah…

I think this is fun and so very true. There are things I don’t like about myself, would I change these things? No, Absolutely not. Why? because despite not liking them, it’s what has made me, me. I am not intentionally hurting anyone, and in order to love yourself, you must embrace yourself flaws and all.

So with that in mind here are The 10 Things I hate about ME

1. My lack of brain to mouth filter
I seriously lack a filter, when I get excited, mad or really any sort of emotion. I loose track of things I say and since my thought process seems to go from 0 to 60 in half a second I try to say everything I’m thinking. This includes random thoughts, TMI, curse words and pretty much everything. I tend to blurt out whatever I’m thinking and end up with a foot in my mouth. This is not the most pleasant feeling.

2. My extreme need for coffee
If it’s available I will drink it, not matter the time. If I see a coffee shop (doesn’t matter which one) I will immediately need to have it. It’s some weird addiction that is a bit hard to control. Does this mean I give into the urges? Absolutely not, I do have some willpower ya know.

3. I need to sing a long if I know the song
My husband hates this, but since I’ve been with him for over a decade I can see how this would bother someone. Most of the time I don’t know I’m doing it, I just start to. Plus I can hear a song once or twice and learn the lyrics. Song lyrics are just easy to memorize, I’m probably pushing something important out but whatevs.

4. I procrastinate
I will leave something to the absolute last minute of I can, and I hate that I do this. Out of everything in this list, this is the one thing that I actually want to change. Due to my procrastination I put myself under unnecessary stress and well as well all know that is not good for you.

5. I’m suspicious
I’m suspicious about everything, If your nice, mean, or just walking by I will be suspicious about you. I think everyone has some sort of ulterior motive that I need to figure out. ‘Your smiling at me, what the hell are you planning person’   is pretty much my thought on a daily basis.

6. I don’t like shorts
So I don’ even know why, but I refuse to wear shorts in public. It has nothing to do with showing my legs, since I love skirts and dresses, but shorts are a absolute ‘Nope’ in public. I wear them around the house if I don’t have anything else to lounge around in, or if it’s just hot and I don’t wanna be around in my underwear. I just don’t do shorts.

7. Horrible pronunciation
So when I speak, I tend to mispronounce words, maybe because like I’ve said before I think pretty quickly and I need to get the words out before I get to the next thought and loose track. My husband loves pointing it out, he’s like the damn speech police.

8. I talk with random accents
So not only do I mispronounce words, but apparently random accents make their way into my talking as well. Once again my husband the speech police has pointed this out on many occasions. Why I do this, I do not know. I have a Californian accent and honestly if I tried to actually do a accent I fail miserably.

9. I have the urge to buy things on sale

my pocket book hates me, whenever I see something on sale I have the urge to buy it. While some of these sales are really great, some not so much. My mind sees a sale sign and I need to look and I’ll most likely buy something. It’s oh so bad.

10. I want to do too much at one time
I always have ideas, thoughts, urges and hobbies that I want to do or try. This leads to me putting too much on my plate at once and I get stuck with so much to do that I stress myself out and get sick. I like to keep busy but I need to learn how to find a balance so I’m not driving myself down.

Five Friday Faves

If this week has taught me anything It’s that you have got to enjoy the simpler things in life. We had a couple of setbacks with the move, one of those being that a blizzard has held up our moving truck so nothing got delivered on time, no internet means no posting on my blog 🙁 and moving costs a hell of a lot of money. I was very tempted to do a Five Friday unfaves because a lot of stuff seemed to have gone wrong, but I want to think more positively, You can check out weeks Five Friday Faves as well.

First Lush Bath Bomb

So to celebrate my move and give myself a pick me up I went to LUSH. Boy was a glad I did. It improved my mood immensely, plus with the snow storm we had I needed something to help my skin. I also got my first bath bomb, as you all should know my bath tub at my last house was broken so finally able to use a bathbomb is amazing!

Tortilla with Queso Fresco

My mom used to feed this to me as a snack as a child and since I was feeling a bit homesick for my family and my old city I needed a bit of comfort. It’s simple and affordable and I love it.

EOS Lip balm

My lips are in bad shape, this (real) winter weather is not helping at all. I had this EOS Lip balm in my purse and I am so glad I did. It has seriously saved my lips.

Snow

I have finally got to see snow! Being a Southern California girl you don’t get to really experience the winter. While I can gripe about the cold, and it being wet, there is just something about curling up with a book and some hot coffee while everywhere around you is blanketed in soft white.

Trader Joe’s Instant Coffee

This was such a life saver. Hello Coffee addict and while yes, I could have gotten Starbucks I am not made of money people! My coffee maker was stuck in a storm and unable to make it to me so I had to get a cheap alternative, while not the absolute best coffee it was enough to get me buy. THANK YOU.

What got you through this cold week?

Settling in to my new house

We finally are here in our new house with internet and our stuff (it only took two freaking weeks of sleeping on an air mattress) but I am here and alive. I am currently setting up my stuff in my new house and I will hopefully post pictures soon. In the meantime follow my Instagram to see any updates and pictures of Tesla playing in the snow!

Of course the first thing I’m setting up is our kitchen cause you know coffee.

Like I said hopefully pictures soon!

wish me luck on setting everything up!

Life in color; October Instagram

Is it too late now to say sorry?

I know I am extremely late with this post but honestly I have been so busy. My house is in a complete mess since I am in the middle of packing things and this whole timeline thing is stressful. We have a month left before we will be in California and it’s nerve racking.

I can say that I will try to post, I actually have some free time to sit and write blog posts but it would be everyday but at least twice or Thrice a week.

A To Z of Me; ABC Is Easy…

So I’ve seen these A To Z of me posts going around for a couple of different bloggers and I thought ‘I WANT TO DO THAT TOO!’. While I didn’t want to do a Gigantic post of the alphabet but I didn’t want to break each letter up into individual posts, I thought doing a couple of letters at a time should be easier.

So here are the ABC’s of me.

A Is For… Autumn

The first thing that comes to mind is apple… and while I do like apples that is totally not what I am going for instead I am going to go with Autumn since it’s my favorite holiday. While I did a First day of Autumn post, where I briefly talked about why I love Autumn so much, what I didn’t talk about is a lot of my important dates happen in Autumn. I met, dated and got married to my husband during this season. My Favorite Holiday Thanksgiving is during this season. Autumn is the time my family tends to start getting together. Autumn is just magical, for the cooling weather to the changes of color, I absolutely love it.

B is for… Beauty

Make up haul

This on was easy, hello I started this blog out as a primary Beauty blog, before I evolved it into what it is today. I am always looking for new beauty products to try, it’s a passion I can’t see myself stopping anytime soon, and I really don’t want to. I am not just talking about outside beauty products either, but even inside beauty. That’s something I am still striving for and trying to achieve.

C is For… Cat and Coffee

2016-10-01-11-00-16 2016-10-14-15-43-55

Well I love Mordechai he’s a cat even if he can be a little butt some (okay a lot) of the time, but I love his little hairy butt. I am also a avid Cat fashion lover. If it has a cat on it somewhere, I will want it. Also… Coffee! I love coffee, I may drink way too much of it, but I love it none the less. Give me a nice Cold brew or a hot pumpkin spice and I’ll be your friend forever.

What are your ABC’s?

Majestic Pure Arabica Coffee Scrub*


2016-05-03 13.39.31 2016-05-03 13.39.42

First Impressions:

  • Very Strong Coffee Smell
  • Looks Harsh, However feels surprisingly gentle

What it’s suppose to do?

  • Target Cellulite and Stretch Marks
  • Battle Acne & Eczema
  • Exfoliate

What’s in it?

  • Organic Kona Coffee
  • Dead Sea Salt
  • Almond Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Arabica Seed Oil
  • Coconut extract
  • Grape Seed Oil

First things first, if you are not a fan of the smell of coffee this is definitely not for you. However, the smell doesn’t really stay after you wash this off your skin (or I’m just used to the smell). This stuff is great, it leaves your skin feeling silky soft and smooth. The Product is not very harsh on my sensitive skin so it doesn’t irritate like some other products I have tried. Is it good for Cellulite and Stretch marks, I’m not sure yet.

 

If you need a good body exfoliate (and are okay with the smell of coffee) then this is definitely for you.
