Farewell 2017, Hello 2018

Happy almost 2018 everybody!!!

This year has been a year for sure but then again what year hasn’t right? Every year is basically the same thing but with different accomplishments. I hope everybody has some good New years resolutions that they can stick too! My New years resolution this year is to start working out more and eating enough and healthy to be able to workout! haha

This last year I started to do some yoga and ended up really liking it, one of my goal is to start practicing more and hopefully accomplish a lot of different poses that I see all these amazing ladies posting on Instagram! I always wanted to be more flexible plus I get anxiety a lot, which sucks, but yoga seems to help both for me! Win Win Situation!

Now why does every year seem so long but short at the same time?! It’s like excuse me time but could you pick one! I started this blog in March, I believe and had no idea I was doing or what I was going to write about all I knew is I wanted to start something to help me with a few things a was struggling with. One if those was writing. When I was in school I was forced to write obviously but I also just enjoyed it. When I got out of school I didn’t realize how much I actually did like to write especially when I can chose what to write about and how to write it!

Well everybody I hope your 2017 was a year to remember! Have a Happy New Year! Here are December posts to look back at:

Top Ten Tuesday

Good morning! Thanksgiving is on Thursday, are you all ready to eat, sleep and repeat till all the left overs are gone!? I’m pretty sure that’s my favorite part about thanksgiving..  the left overs! To be honest I don’t really like left overs other than mashed potatoes and turkey! Gobble gobble!

With thanksgiving about to past though, that means it will actually feel like winter! Can you believe Winter doesn’t actually start till December 21st!? That’s way to far away! Okay only a month away but still, I love Winter! I know where some of you readers are from it’s snowing and definitely winter but here in Tucson… we got to the 90’s this last week… The 90’s! I haven’t even pulled out extra blankets yet!! Honestly I love Winter mostly cause there isn’t a lot of bugs and it’s easier to stay warm rather then cool off, so with that being said here are my top 10 picks for activewear jackets! We need to stay warm but still be active! Plus being active warms up your body so win win situation!(:

 

  1. FOREVER 21 Active Inspire Graphic Jacket

What Better way to inspire then to wear it!?

 

2. The Balance Collection Danique Lace Up Hoodie

It’s all in the details! Love the lace up look!

 

3.adidas Originals Pink Superstar Track Jacket

One it’s Pink, Two it’s Adidas, Three it’s a big comfy jacket!

 

4.Soybu Active Justine Jacket

This one is just so simple but still so cute! and it has thumb holes!

 

5. Women’s Patagonia ‘Better Sweater’ Jacket

Patagonia Jackets are super warm and comfy! Plus this is a ‘Better Sweater’ ! haha

 

6. The Balance Collection Skye Cowl Neck Hoodie

again with the details! the mesh just adds a little something to a simple jacket!

 

7. Marika The Force Hoodie

This one is a good color! It could go with everything and anything!

 

8. Splits59 Volley Pullover

A little something for those not so hot winter days, and because showing a little skin never hurts!

 

9. Expedition Base Layer Top

another one cause its pink, cozy, and got them thumb holes!

 

10. Mount Cannon Fleece Jacket

Last but never least, another black comfy jacket, this one is fleece so it will for sure keep you warm!

Hmmm, Let Winter Begin! (:

I hope you guys can find something warm and cozy and can still move in!

Got any Top 10 Tuesday list ideas? Holla at me, I love hearing ideas not in my brain!

Till next time,,

Olive Oil Hair care + Haircut

I don’t always get a haircut but when I do, I do it myself. I have had a lot of horrifying experiences at hair salons where I tell them one thing, trust the person holding scissors with a hair cutting degree, and they do the complete opposite. Why?!

So with all the being said, I took my chances and went to cost cutters. It literally felt like I was getting my first hair cut again! So she trimmed the length, perfect. I had cut my own bangs a little over a week before hand, Kind of the reason I went in the first place. I asked her to see what she can do to make them side bangs and not straight across anymore! Now they were just cut so they are still pretty short but with her magic scissors and hair cutting degree, she managed to give me a hair style that I asked for and loved! + Braided my hair for free (:

So she washed my head and we sat down to get to cutting. she was telling my about how she could tell I wasn’t use high quality brands for my hair cause they brand I use has plastics and paraffin and basically icky stuff in it. Yea, yea, yea I have heard to all to many times! then she said “Let me show you on your own hair”. Hmm OK. She took her scissors are started to lightly scrap a section of hair towards the ends, what was on the scissors afterwards? A line of white gunk that came off my hair!!! So Here is the real reason for this post!

I bought Olive Oil Shampoo and Conditioner!

I normally never by stuff from a salon cause ONE they try to just sell you things all the time and TWO they are normally way more money there when I could get it online or at Walmart. Well I brought something at the salon and at first I wasn’t happy with myself, I never looked into professional brands so I figured I just spent money on the same thing I have at home, its not going to help much, and she was just trying to selling my something on sale. Well either way I brought it so what the heck! I haven’t used it yet because I really want to notice the difference so tonight will be the start of something new!

My hair right now is frizzy and breakable! I don’t use heat products or hair products other than hairspray every once in awhile. I will update you guys in a week or so when I can really feel and see the difference! If any of you guys have use this product before and have comments and reviews please bring them my way! I love to hear your opinions!

Have a Wonderful Week and Happy Monday Lovelys!

Hot Glue and Imagination

There are soooo many things you can do with hot glue! I honestly didn’t even realize how many things you can do with hot glue till I saw all these short videos on insta and I was in easy diy heaven! Hot Glue makes life easier! It dries fast and is sticky but you can still mess with it if absolutely needed which is great from mess up people like me..

Well to kill some time in my life I used hot glue and a couple old hair pieces to make an adorable diy phone case!! I don’t know about you but I get tired of the same old case pretty fast.. I just get bored easily tbh but that’s okay cause I got a cute phone case out of boredom (:

So basically I had three sparkly headbands that I never wear and a hair bow that was falling apart, trash them? Absolutely not! Reuse them!

I cut the headbands to basically go from one side to the other of the case. Also to be honest I had no idea what I was gunna do hahaha just kind of winged it! Then I started glueing! I just messed around with some patterns but went with a simple stripe! Just start gluing till you have reached the top, I put a silver on in the middle where the bow is cause it’s an off color and little bit wider band to hold the bow better!

The hair bow I used was falling apart from its bow form sooo I had to hot glue that back together first, easy peesy lemon squeezey.. not I got hot glue all over my fingers and more on the bow then I hoped but hey it was still fun and I completed it lol

While I was getting my bow to the proper form I had sprayed the case with hairspray so the glitter doesn’t come off so easily, it definitely worked but I still get one or two glitters that stick to my hand once in awhile!

Okay so we’ve cut, patterned, glued, and glued some more! Time for final touches! Glue your bow on, spary one more time with hairspray! And your done!!

PS if you have any fringes I just took a lighter to them really quick! And also I covered my camera hole then cut it out later with a razor blade and lightered the ends!

Have a wonderful weekend !(:
