I am here!

So, I wanted to redesign my blog to suit how I want to be rebranded. Unfortunately, it’s taking longer than I would like. I wanted to have a grand opening, but I decided instead of letting my blog sit unused I wanted to start posting again! Well it’s March, my birthday month! I’m turning 31 and I really want to start being the person I want to be end up being. I am hoping to do more outdoor activities and more lifestyle aimed posts while still doing beauty and fashion. So stay tuned!

Also, if there is something that you want to see on this blog I would love to hear all about it!

New Year Resolutions

I did not do too well in 2017. I sort of threw all the resolutions I had out the window. I lost a lot of motivation and really just stopped taking care of myself. I am hoping to change all that. It will require a lot of work on my part physically and mentally but I am willing to try (there is no try, only do or not do. Totally quoted that wrong…)

So this is a general resolutions list really.

  • Be more Active!
  • Read More
  • Drink more water
  • Don’t be afraid to try new things
  • Budget
  • Post more on the blogs.
  • Take more time for yourself

So that’s my list. I will start with small goals that eventually lead to a bigger goal. I’ll try to keep track of any progress so that I can keep you all updated!

Fall is here and I love it!

2017-10-17 15.22.15

I know I know I am so late to the game, but I missed the first day and I still want to exclaim my love for it before winter comes.

In Idaho the leaves are changing color and leaving mess all over the lawns. Pumpkin spice is everywhere and  I would not be surprised if I’m completely pumpkin’d out  by December. (I still haven’t had pumpkin pie yet though)

It’s sweater weather here, in California it has been in the 90s to 100s. I really like 60 degree weather, not so much 40 degree when I get up in the morning but it is a small trade.

My husband said that some of the  mountains are already getting snow! I don’t know if I am dreading the snow or no. Last year was bad with snow so I am hoping that the snow wont be so bad here.

We are still in the house process and its so stressful that I had to ban house talk for a whole day just so I can relax. I knew that buying a house was stressful but still I was not prepared. I really hope everything goes smoothly because all this stress than for everything to fall through would be horrible.

Wish me luck.

Life Update

Lately I have been so busy! I started my pace summer classes so that is taking up so much time, but not only that I started a new job. So far I’ve been doing good and I just wanted to let you all know.

With this new job I am working full time and I am able to actually dress up for it. I really want to show you all what I am wearing for it since I’ve been really into style and fashion lately. I hope I’ll be doing a haul soon since I bought some new shoes and I just want to show you all what I bought. Don’t expect designer though since I have like zero spending cash right now. I need to get that paycheck.

I am thinking of trying some fashion subscriptions, anyone know of any they recommend, I’ve tried Golden Tote and love it but I am just wondering if there are any others.

 

Social Media Confessions; I hate Facebook

pexels-photo-199497

I don’t use Facebook very often, but since I don’t live around all my family anymore I scroll through it every once in a while to check on things. Once I’ve seen how my cousins kids are, find out whose engaged and where this person ate I then start to hit that section of Facebook that makes me regret opening the social media app in the first place.I

You know that dark back alley of Facebook that leads to Animal Abuse, Fist Fight videos and Political views that make me want to rip my hair out. It’s that not so special place that sky rockets my anxiety and stress and makes me loose faith in humanity. I know that I could block it, but I get sucked in and by the time I realize to do it I am so mentally drained that I just shut it all down.

I SHUT IT ALL DOWN.

Really I should delete it, but it’s how I communicate with some people. When you live a couple of states away from your family and friends that I can’t really afford to delete it. That’s what makes me hate it so much, that I want to delete it but I can’t and Grrr….

Thats really the only way I can describe myself after thinking about Facebook.

Impromptu Roadtrip

pexels-photo-90633

Sorry about the not posting but planning a trip in a day, then packing, Making sure the animals are taken care of took priority over scheduling my blog posts. Oh, where did we go? Well back home to California, with a pit stop in Vegas. My bestie graduated this weekend and last minute we got confirmation that we can go.

Wow was it the best and worse experience of this year.

First off, halfway on the drive down to Vegas the hubby got sick suddenly, fever, exhaustion, and nausea hit all at once and I had to take over the long weary drive while he passed out in the passenger seat.

Secondly the hotel was not the best hotel that we checked into. Now I don’t usually stay at 5 star hotels because of budget but this was a 2 at best, but honestly what did we expect when your on a budget and need a hotel room in 2 days in Vegas, you can’t be picky.

We then got up very early in the morning to make the long drive to Southern California where we visited the Parents. We then attended the party where I may or may not have acted appropriately, but it was amazing to see all my friends and act like I don’t like 14 hours away.

We then took the long drive back to Vegas where we passed out. When we awoke the next morning it was my turn to be sick so much so that I immediately passed out when we came home and did not get up until 6:30 the next day.

This weekend was a freaking whirlwind….

My Morning routine

pexels-photo-64775

Everyday I wake up to a tiny grey paw in my face..

This is Mordechai my grey tiger striped tabby cat. He is hungry and wants food now. I roll myself out of bed and get him a can of his digestive health wet food. Tesla then comes bolting out of the bedroom because ‘How dare mommy not pay her attention first’ she then, after scolding me, waits patiently by the back door to be let out for her morning bathroom break. After they are settled and fed I proceed to make myself a couple cups of coffee in our old school coffee maker.

Our Keurig decided to quit and walked out on me.

I have to be careful when making my coffee. I only allow myself two cups, since that one time I drank a whole pot and felt like I wanted to puke and simultaneously run a 5k without stopping. I then load two pieces of white bread into my toaster that is on it’s last leg. I have a feeling he’s going to join the Keurig soon. After I butter my toast and poor my coffee into my husband’s mug.

I am forbidden to use this mug but I continue to do so because I have my rebellious reasons, I may be 30 but I need my stubborn child side sometimes.

I then settle down to either do one of two things.; I read or type a blog post. This morning blogging won out as I have some motivation and I refuse to let that leave me. Since I’ve decided to write four blogs I need to make sure that take every opportunity presented to me. When this is done I browse Instagram for a while until I am ready to take my shower and dress.

Then it’s time to start running errands.

What do you do on the morning of your day off?

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.

Seriously, Are you Kidding me!?

Did I accidentally break a bunch of mirrors? Walk under tons of ladders? Spill a gallon of salt, because my luck seems to have hit the pits lately.

I’m in pain and currently on multiple medications. BECAUSE I HAVE A FREAKING BLADDER INFECTION!!!!!

It really is one of the worse things that happened to me this year and during my holy birthday month too! I have to pee every 5 minutes and It can’t stop and won’t stop.

One thing I can say is that I finally got my first paycheck with my new job, so I bought me some make-up (because we all know how much I need it…not) so I’ll post up my haul, most likely Monday, because I finally have another Sample Sunday planned for you all tomorrow. Exciting isn’t it?

Wish me luck on the peeing…
