The Florida Life!

Over the weekend we went to the Florida Aquarium. I was so excited to see all the different types of fish, birds, plants, animals and reptiles.... ok not pleased to see the reptiles or SHARKS. While watching the shark tank they would swim around turn and look they were coming right at you. Completely creepy. Thank goodness for 12 inches of super thick glass :) A gal at work caught a shark and of course let it go but she loved it. I was like um lol no I would completely freak out.
They had jellyfish oh and a Dori like fish. This tank was cool they had designed a little place with legos. Oh and what place in Florida wouldn't be complete without a gator? Look at this dude. I think hes intimidating for such a small gator.

He Asked!

Over the weekend we went to the Florida Aquarium and then we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant where Jerry proposed!!! Its something I'll never forget.... I can't stop smiling :) We've spent 6 years together and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him.

Over the weekend Jerry and I went to Downtown Disney. I love everything Disney/Pixar so I was super excited. It was scorching hot outside but the boat rides, movies and walking around made it worth it :) Even though I live in Orlando I don't really go that often. But when I do go I always have to go to Goof's Candy Co., VinylNation, Basin and of course the super huge Disney store. Goofy's Candy Co. has the most amazing Peanut Butter cookies ever and a tons of other sweets. 

VinylNation always has something new whether its a new line of blind box Mickeys, Star Wars art on the walls or large Mickey's in the showcase I'm always wanting more then I need lol. Oh look at the Mickey lights..... they don't sell them but I want to make them cause these are to adorable :)  The Mickey chandelier is a must have for any room lol..... I love the bright colors.

I could go there everyday and not get bored.... Oh and their opening a Splitsville there soon. YAY!

Oh Sally! Review

About a month ago I received my first VoxBox from Influenster. Influenster is a community of people who get to test products and give feedback based on their findings. To find out more info about the program click here. Oh and its free to join :)

One of the items I received for testing was Sally Hansen's Salon Effects. My first impression was hmmm I'm not a cheetah kinda girl but I'll give it a whirl. I'm always painting my nails and I thought this would be better since they're pre-made designs and probably won't have the overwhelming nail polish smell.

After putting the Salon Effects on my nails I'm over all happy with the product. They are easy to use (5 simple steps), they don't take up to much time, they are super shiny (I added a top coat) and last quite awhile. I can't wait to try some other designs. Sephora has some OPI ones I've been eying for awhile too.

Hi everyone. I hope your having a great weekend! I just wanted to share a few of my go to nail polishes for this Spring. They're pastel and remind me of Easter eggs lol :) I've really been liking these brands but I use the essence polishes more. They have a semi wide variety of colors, their inexpensive and last a really long time (I found mine at Ulta).

So the color names from left to right are.... Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear in #340 Mint Sorbet, essie #478 Nude Beach, Zoya in Megan, essence #53 you belong to me, #70 nude it! and #44 modern romance.

5 Things You Don't Know About Me

Here are a few things you might not know about me. Just a few random facts :)

1. My dad is a farmer (his second job). Yep. I grew up on a farm sorta well my grandpa lives at the farm and we live down the road. I used to spend my spring breaks cutting/stacking wood, summers bailing hay/straw and picking rocks in the field. What fun.... NOT.... but I got to spend time with dad and grandpa, get a farmers tan, and build a little arm muscle lol.

2. I used to show sheep in 4-H for eight years. I would name them.... Oh how I remember John Smith and Pocahontas. I tried to find a pic but I think there all in Michigan :(

3. When I visit family in the winter up north I like refuse to drive in the snow since a incident a few years back. I hate black ice.

4. I'm super afraid of heights so planes are always a trip!

5. I hate/terrified of snakes.

Could Be Better

The past few days I haven't felt the best. It's the allergy and nasty cold combo. Yesterday I went through a entire box of Kleenex like it was nothing lol. But I feel like its starting to pass thank god. The weather here in Florida has been so crazy. I get so excited when its super cold then all the sudden it 89 the next day :( I think the climate needs to decide to stay one temperature. Anyway its Wednesday...YAY! Half way through the work week. I can't wait for the weekend. So many things to do and hopefully I'll be able to sew a bit: )

Feeling Crafty???

So lately I've been inspired by Youtube crafts and tutorials. I really haven't been crafting but I'm going to make the time. Here are a few diys I'm loving right now.

Megs fox earmuffs... not really necessary in Florida but their to cute. I want a pair plus owls :)

This video on Hair Chalking by Miss Kandee Johnson looks like tons of fun plus its not permanent so its doable for the weekend (not sure about work) :)


An adorable appliqued heart pillow.


Tee shirt wall art. I'm thinking a Mickey would look perfect in my office or even t-rex from Toy Story.  

Oh there are so many possibilities.

I have some amazing news!!! My lil sis Kels is engaged. I'm so excited for her :) Her boyfriend Sean proposed last night.

She called me up and was telling me what happened and told me I'm going to be her maid of honor. Holy smokes I'm so honored she asked me and I have so much planning to do. I can't wait. I'm beaming with excitement too and had to share :)

Happy Valentine's!

Happy Valentine's! I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with tons of love :) 

February 13, 2012


Tomorrow is Valentines Day and I'm completely behind. I'm not really into the whole lovey dovy day but its a reason to decorate in pink and red, get flowers, chocolate, and eat cupcakes:) Jerry isn't into Valentines Day at all. Bummer! So my motivation is like out the door. But I found some really cute downloadable Valentine cards that would be great for family, friends, or co-workers:)

Handmade xoxo

I have a new favorite store.... hint its handmade. Ok its LUSH!

I love their products. They smell good, are good for you, and all natural :) They have so many products its crazy. If your not familiar with LUSH they have bath, hair and skin products (that are handmade). I've always kinda steered away from them just because its a bit pricey and well I could get cheaper products at Bath and Body Works. But there was something that reeled me in and now I'm completely hooked. Maybe its because I have a higher interest in protecting/taking care of my skin and looking at the ingredients. Either way I'm stoked! I'm fairly new to using their products so I was wondering do any of you use their products? If so do you recommend anything?

February 3, 2012


Today is my dads Birthday and Sunday is my parents anniversary. I wish I could be there celebrating with them but there is always Skype:) I hope they have a wonderful day and many more to come!

Ok so I have mention how I'm addicted to makeup....well its gotten even worse. I decided to join Birchbox and MyGlam bag monthly. If your not familiar with these they send you 4-5 high end deluxe size samples to you. I kinda like this since there are so many products out there and I thought this might help me decide what I like more instead of buying a full size product and being stuck with it . I received my first packages from each and I must say I'm impressed. More so with MyGlam because they sent me some full size products for only $10. That's crazy especially seeing how much they cost.

I also purchased some eyeshadow and blush palettes over the weekend I can't wait to try :) Its a little weird I like makeup because well I really never wore any just some bronzer and eyeshadow. Now I have a collection. Do you like any particular makeup product?

This past week really did go by so fast..... Over the weekend I got to relax, catch up on some tv shows, organize, and craft a bit :)

The only down side is my poor iPhone fell and the screen shattered. I decided to put a cute lil Chip n Dale sticker on the really bad part so I don't get cut. But what to do???? There are a few options but it breaks my heart to see it broken.

January 10, 2012


Its Tuesday already... This week is going by so fast. Over the weekend Tori came over and we did some sewing. I'm almost finished with two purses and hopefully I'll finish them later this week.

I also have been busy creating a motion graphics piece. I do love some After Effects. For those of you that don't know the program you can edit (sorta), change video color, add 2d and 3d effects. The possibilities are endless :) also Video Copilot with Andrew Kramer has some amazing AE tutorials. I can spend hours just looking at his videos for inspiration/knowledge. He's one talented fella. I want to own all his plug-ins so badly especially optical flares :)

A Year Older!

Today is my 26th Birthday. I feel so much older especially when my some of my hobbies include crocheting and sewing lol.

After work Jerry surprised me with my favorite roses and took me to Carrabba's:) I love Italian food. Oh if you ever go there you should try the Chocolate Bread Pudding its yummy. Then we went to the movies and I got a Red Velvet Cupcake. I think he has a few other surprises up his sleeve.....time will tell.

2012 Resolutions

I have a few New Year resolutions this year. Kinda a piece of cake.

1. Eat less cupcakes. Yes I do love sweets but I'm going to cut back.
2. Try to minimize my Diet Coke intake. I drink way to much....
3. Draw a few Art Pieces. Maybe of family pets.

I think these are doable. The first two are going to be tough.

New Year!

I hope you all had a great New Years!

2012 is going to be awesome I just know it. 2011 wasn't the best. I moved from Tampa to Orlando and had to say goodbye to a few friends (I see them sometimes but schedules conflict). Also I don't think I ever shared this on my blog but I lost my job last May since my employers at the time were going through some economic hardships and I was one of the first things to go:( I was their only full time employee. It was a blow but I kinda knew it was coming. So yeah I was unemployed for about six and a half months. It sucked. It was a financial strain and a hole lotta stress. Then I found a new amazing Multimedia Design job in November and guess what it relates to the beauty industry. I get to design, edit videos, and code sites. I'm an all around-er :) The people there are nice and I can't wait to grow with the company. Fingers crossed 2012 has a few surprises and amazing adventures.

Are you looking forward to anything in particular for 2012?
