Seriously, it might just be the best show that has ever been on television. I cannot tell you how much I adore Friends. I have every single episode on my iPod and I watch them on the plane, in the airport, sometimes even when I can't sleep at night haha. I have the box set and I record and watch nearly every episode that comes on TV. Talk about a tad of an obsession.

I don't know what it is but I truly love it. I remember being a sophomore in high school and my World History teacher watched it and it was the 9th season and it was supposed to be the last one, but they went on to do one more. Anyway, I remember him talking about how he was bummed that it was the last season (no one know they would do 10 seasons at that point). I thought it was really funny because I never really got it, also, I had never really watched it before. Sure I had caught a few episodes here and there and what-not but I had never really knew what went on with Ross and Rachel and that whole dynamic.

Anyway, I know it's kind of random but I'm just watching the one where Monica makes 12 lasagnas for her aunt and has to get rid of them because they weren't vegetarian.. anyway, I think it is the best show that ever lived and if you haven't seen it, you definately should. They air all the time on TBS. SO CHECK IT OUT!


PS. I love action shows: NCIS, The Unit, Bones, etc. but I love to laugh. I told John tonight that I think I'm more of a comedy girl than an action girl... it is definitely true!

Food and stuff..

So today John and I went to Target and the grocery store - no I didn't go to the gym like I wanted but I didn't have the time once John got home, but I am for sure going tomorrow!

So at Target we bought a food scale and a real scale. I had only intended on buying a cheapy scale but no, I saw them and fell in love with one. It tells you your body fat percent, water percent, muscle mass, and bone mineral mass. Talk about sweet! It stores all that information plus your weight for up to 4 people. I wasn't totally shocked when I saw the body fat percent but it still sucked. Oh well, can't bitch and complain about it - I have to DO something about it!

Then we went to the grocery store and we bought a mass amount of fruits and vegetables. We got: Bananas, oranges, apples, grapes, cantaloupe, pineapple, green onion (yummy in a salad), mushrooms, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, carrots, and cucumber. We already had lettuce and spinach at home for the base of a salad so we didn't need to pick that up. We also got light dressing, almonds for some crunch, Raisin Bran cereal, chicken breast tenders, turkey bacon (so good!), yogurt, 2 smartones, and some lean pockets.

After we got home I started prepping everything - I cut up the fruits and vegetables and cooked some chicken so that it is all ready to go to either throw into a salad or be able to snacked on. I didn't want to give myself any excuses to not do this and follow through. I am seriously proud of myself. I have some grilled chicken and some boiled chicken, and I also hard boiled some eggs - such a great snack and awesome in a salad.

So yeah, that is what we did today. We had BBQ for dinner since we are going on Weight Watchers for sure on Sunday so I am definately going to go to the gym tomorrow and hit the elliptical - I need to burn some major calories. It was a nice "one last" indulgence and worth the added time at the gym but it definately will not be a regular occurance.

What did I do to my hair?!?!?

Okay so all today and all yesterday my hair had been feeling fried... and some of last week too. I think it might have been the shampoo and conditioner that I was using - my mother-in-laws. But that is really weird because she has Nexxus Moisturizing ones.. maybe it was my flat iron or something, I'm not sure. But maybe I need to go in to the salon and get a good trim (last time she missed some spots and I still have split ends) and then invest in Chi Silk Infusion like everyone is talking about. I don't typically blow dry my hair but I do usually use my flat iron so maybe I just need a barrier.. could be. Even if that isn't the problem I should still get it. =]

On a happier note, I went to the gym and it was awesome. I'm still going to the bike for a bit when I get there but not as long as I did today and seriously, they need to make those cushions more comfortable! So today I did 25 minutes on the bike and 18 minutes on the eliptical. Maybe I will try to switch that the next time I go. Hmm... something to think about.

Also, my face feels so much nicer now that I am using Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream - seriously a must have for those with dry skin! And... I just bought Rimmel's Lasting Finish foundation in Ivory 100. The color sucks.. it is totally darker than my skin tone and that makes me so mad. =[ But I was at the gym and I had it on anyway - I probably had a line! EWW! But yeah, I had it on and I was sweating, not a lot but enough, and it totally stayed and didn't look any different. If only the shade were perfect.. Anyway, it is now 1:53 in the morning and I am exhausted, so goodnight everyone!

First day and a slacker!

Ok... so I wasn't going to say anything but I have to because it isn't fair or right. I didn't go to the gym last night. Horrible, I know! Well, by the time we got home after John picked up his parents from the airport it was really late and I don't feel comfortable going to the gym by myself that late. Soo..... I'm definately going tonight! I PROMISE! And I'll even take a picture of me in the locker room or something lol... IDK.

Just thought I'd let you guys know.

Vanilla Hair

So, a few posts ago I talked about how I am obsessed with everything vanilla.. which is crazy because when I met my husband 3 years ago I hated it. He actually said, "But you hate vanilla!" when I told him about my current obsession.. talk about funny. So, it is so bad that I want to buy vanilla scented shampoo and conditioner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who has ever had vanilla scented hair?! Not me. I've done strawberry and coconut... but not vanilla. Anyway, I found out that Bath and Body Works has shampoo and conditioner in their Warm Vanilla Sugar scent... I AM SO ON BOARD! Well tonight I was at the drugstore and saw a brand that reminds me of Philosophy (due to the packaging) and it is called Organix. They have a vanilla scented shampoo & conditioner. Soo... I'm not sure which to go with. I've never heard of Organix before tonight so I'm not for sure... but at the same time, I've never heard that B&BW had hair products - granted I don't usually go in there and when I do, I go straight for the anti-bacterial soaps. Or should I go for the Philosophy one?! Anyway, just thought I'd see what you guys thought.


I'm a fatty and going to the gym

Hey guys... so I know the title is a little crazy but it is true. I am fat - you don't have to agree or disagree but it is the truth - and I am going back to the gym tonight. As soon as John picks up his parents from the airport, around 8 or 8:30, I will going to the gym. Not sure how long I will be there but hey, anything is better than nothing right?!

So yeah, I will do an introduction video thingy when I get back from the gym, so it won't be up until late or tomorrow morning but oh well, I will get it up.


Almost 2 AM.

So..... It is nearly 2 AM here in California and I can't sleep. I have a lot on my mind, nothing I care to really get into right now as I'm not perfectly sure who reads this as well as the fact that I'm not really sure what is going on with me currently! All I know is that I am seriously confused, having all sorts of mixed emotions and what not and trying to find a way to see through the darkness. I'm listening to Sara Bareilles - she rocks BTW. Anyway guys, sorry I have been MIA on YouTube - I haven't been home for the past week, but I go home tomorrow and will be doing a video on my new makeup bag either tomorrow or Thursday.

I hope you guys are all sleeping - well I suppose you aren't if you are currently reading this :) But I mean when I wrote this, I hope you were sleeping.

I'll be seeing you soon.

In's and Out's

Hey guys. So Lollipop26 and AllThatGlitters21 have done these and I thought I would jump on the bandwagon!

1. Vanilla. Anything that smells like vanilla. I have no idea why, I just love it. I think it started with Vanilla Cupcake Bubblebath from Sephora - OMG to die for!

2. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. I have really dry feet - gross I know but it's true. I use it and since it is a cream, it stays on and doesn't come on. My feet just absorb it like there is no other.

3. Cetaphil Moisturizer with SPF 15. I can't remember what it is called exactly but this stuff works really well. I was a bit skeptical since I have really dry skin and SPFs tend to dry out my skin. But seriously, it is awesome. I think it might work for people with more of a normal skin type and since my face is dry I might try the cream on my face... not sure though.

4. Caress Body Wash in Berry Inludging. I have used 2 other Caress Body Washes before and they are all amazing. I love them all! They clean really nicely and moisturize at the same time. The scent of this stuff just makes me go into a different place - I adore it.

1. Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer. It is medicated with 0.5% Salicylic Acid. I thought this stuff would be pretty good since I love Clean and Clear's other products. NO! It worked for a few days and then when I noticed that when I would use it, it would make my skin feel dry and tight. Probably the medication in it. If you have dry skin, don't use this. It might work for oily skin since it is oil free but I don't know.

2. Coastal Scents. I have nothing good to say about this company. They are horrible with the way they treat their customers. I mean, seriously... calling someone ignorant?! Give me a break.

3. AmLactin Body Cream. My doctor told me to get this because I have red bumps on my upper arms... this stuff is an okay lotion/body cream. I mean it mositurizes pretty nice and I have heard people rave about it for feet.. but the smell is atrocious. It feels like it is burning my nose hairs off. I can't stand this stuff.

I think that is about it. I will post a video at the end of the month with my favorites for February.. if you guys are interested in it.

New MAC addiction

Ok.. so I have a problem!!!!!

I had done some work for my mom, helping her type since she burnt her hands, and so she paid me $30. Not much but it was nice. So I looked at the sale ads for Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and Longs Drugs... I went to Walgreens and was looking at the new L'Oreal Double Extend Tubes mascara and L'Oreal Telescopic which would have been about $14 (BOGO 50% off) and then the L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation which was about $11 and that was BOGO 50% off too.. so I could have gotten that and one mascara for about $15 or both mascaras and that and something else for like $30... well no, I didn't do that. For some reason I decided to go to MAC. So I got in my car and went to the mall which is like 15 mins away (ON THE FREEWAY!)

So I go there and I spend $31 on concealer and Viva Glam V (Five) lipstick. I don't mind the lipstick since it all goes to charity but I didn't want to spend $30 on 4 things from L'Oreal but have no problem spending $30 on two things from MAC.. WTF!?

Anyway, I thought it was funny. So yeah, now I have a serious MAC addiction.. and you know what? I'm perfectly ok with it.


This next week and some packages!

Hey guys. So my last Coastal Scents order came in the mail today, I won't be buying from them anymore due to the fact that they called one of their customers ignorant for stating some facts that she had found out about Silica powder and then defended CS by saying they weren't the ones who were telling people to use it like MUFE HD Powder - so I will be buying the stuff I would have bought from CS on eBay, it is cheaper there anyway.

So anyway... the package came in today but it is at my husband's work since I have all my packages sent there because FedEx and UPS don't ship to our area until late at night. Well it came just after he left for lunch so it is still there with him but when he gets home I will open it and do a haul video for you guys.

Our new backpack came in too, at his office as well, and I'm super stoked! I saw it at Sports Authority since they were having a huge sale but it was cheaper online at I also bought a cosmetic bag that has yet to ship :( I measured my 88 palette and comparied to the dimensions that they gave and my palettes should fit, so here is to having our fingers crossed. Anyway.. check my YouTube ( later tonight to see the backpack and the CS order

For the next week, John and I will be at his parents house - they are going to Florida to visit Rhonda's (his Mama) sister. They leave tomorrow morning and come back next Wednesday. I will have my computer so I will be updating my blog but not sure if I will make any videos.. I have a few on here though so I might edit them tonight and then post them if you guys want to see them - just let me know =]

I hope you guys have a great week and I'll see you later tonight.

New Update.

Hey guys, sorry I have been MIA. I need to be better about updating this thing! Haha. Anyway, Saturday was my birthday and John and I went to Disneyland. It rained on us.. not too bad until about 10 then it got heavier and then stopped around 11:30ish until 2:30 or 3 and then was a downpour! But we had a blast. We had expected to stay until midnight when they closed but we got through everything we wanted to do/see, aside from the 2 things closed due to the rain, by noon. So we had lunch up by Splash Mountain at Hungry Bear Restaurant and then rode a few more rides that we wanted to do, then we went on the train twice in a row and had some toffee and a soda to share. When we were finishing up the last part of the first time around it started to rain again (that's the downpour one) so we rode it again. After that second time we got out and walked up Main Street, more on the side under awnings and inside stores, and then got to the locker where we put our ponchos back on and got the rest of our stuff. We looked through a few stores and weren't sure we wanted to buy anything but we browsed. Then we left the park and went into the big Disney store at Downtown Disney. After that, we made our way to the Disneyland Hotel where we were having dinner at Goofy's Kitchen. We went to the bathroom and changed.. well, just our socks since we had managed to stay mostly dry from the park to the hotel. Man! It is such a difference having your socks dry, even if your shoes are a bit wet.

After dinner, we left and were on our way home, about 7:15ish. We stopped at the Glendale Galleria which is about half way between home and Disneyland. I went into Sephora and MAC and bought some stuff at MAC for my birthday. I have a haul video on YouTube that you can check out to see what I bought.

Other than my birthday, my life has pretty much been uneventful. We did learn that we are getting a big tax return though which is nice. So we are able to go to Houston in May for John's grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. We are also going to buy Annual Passes to Disneyland and are going back for his birthday and our anniversary in March. We want to go a bunch and we found out through this trip that we actually don't spend as much as we thought we did.. it is mainly just tickets and after going just 4 DAYS.. not times but actual days, it pays for itself since it is a Park Hopper and has free parking included in it and 10-15% off food and merchandise.

So anyway, thanks for reading this and I will try my hardest to update it =]

I love you all!

Why should I use an eye shadow primer??

View my video for the full explaination.

Here are most pictures so you can better review them.

Feel free to ask me any questions you might have.

1st picture - UDPP was used.
2nd picture - No UDPP.
3rd Picture - No UDPP.
4th Picture - Left eye (UDPP). Right eye (Nothing).
5th Picture - 8 hours after the 4th picture

On the eye with nothing, the blue did not even show up.. therefore it looks a lot darker than the one that had UDPP.

Eye shadow primers help your eye shadow stay on all day, not smudge, to not crease, and decrease the amount of fall out. I believe that the fall out is due to the eye shadow not having anything to hold on to.
