Peace Out 2009!!

Earlier this morning I realized today is the last day in the year 2009! All I can say is WOW!! What a year 2009 was! It seems like it went by so fast for me. Of course every year has it's ups and downs for us all but I wouldn't change a thing about 2009. I learned a lot about myself and those around me, and I met some great people! OH my biggest change was when I chopped all my hair off lol I'm looking forward to 2010 because I have some HUGE life changing decisions to make as far as my education, possibly moving to another state, internships, and graduation. I'm excited, scared, and anxious lol. In 2010 I will continue to strive for the best and have more confidence in myself and what I can accomplish. I hope you all do the same and remember this for 2010 : "When you think things are going wrong, consider they may be going right for the first time." @thedailylove With that being said PEACE OUT 2009... What's good 2010!! HAHA

3 for 1

I just noticed that I last time I did a blog post on heels was November 11th! It is now December 28th! I recently purchased 3 different pair of heels, the first dark blue pair are from Forever 21, and the purple and red pair are from You know I love them all of course! I believe the ones from Forever 21 were like $25-$30 and all shoes are $39.95 from Shoe Dazzle but you have to sign up to get a membership. The Shoe Dazzle Stylists' give you 5 different shoes to choose from that match your style. Now if you don't like them you can ask for a new selection, or just pass before the 5th or 6th day in that month so they won't charge your account. If you just happen to forget to pass that month they credit your account for that charge so you can use it for future purchases. If you love heels like myself then I would say check them out! I haven't had the chance to wear the purple shoes yet but I definitely will soon :) So what do you all think?

Avatar 3D

Last night me and my best friend Heather went to see Avatar in 3D and mannnnn THAT MOVIE IS DOPE!! This was my first 3D movie ever lol haha I know I'm late..but it was well worth the $11.75. I really don't want to go into details about the movie but the whole time I was rooting for the Na'vi Tribe and wish I could be in the tribe lol. Their home Pandora was beautiful and amazing! I'm still trying to figure out how tall they really were! They were like 7'0 or something! But all in all I recommend this movie to anybody who hasn't seen it yet...and of course in 3D. The other 3 pics are what I wore that night to the movies.

Products I did keep

After I did the research on the ingredients in hair products to avoid I went through everything I had to make sure it didn't have ingredients that needed to be avoided. The products that I can actually continue to use that haven't caused me any problems nor did they have any of the ingredients we should avoid are: Giovanni Smooth as Silk Shampoo and Conditioner, Carols Daughter Black Vanilla Herbal Shampoo with Leave-In Conditioner, and Hair Smoothie, Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, Aussie Conditioner. I will not just try anything ever again! Like they say if it aint broke don't try to fix it! I'm glad I found out and listened to my hair and scalp!

Whats in your products? know how they say your hair speaks to you right? My hair/scalp has been talking to me and I hear her loud and clear! Like my best friend Heather says..."girl I bet your scalp is cursing you out" lol So recently my scalp has been itching and feeling irritated really bad and I couldn't figure it out for anything! SO yesterday I decided to do a deep conditioning with Organic Root Stimulator's Hair Mayonnaise and after a while I realized my scalp was itching like hell and my Aunt was like maybe your having an allergic reaction to whatever you just put in your hair. So today I used google to figure out what ingredients could be the culprit and THIS Hair Mayonnaise has 2 freaking products that can cause an allergic reaction while 2 other ingredients should be avoided.
The 4 ingredients that need to be avoided that are in this product are Diazolidinyl Urea, Propyl Paraben, Propylene Glycol, and DMDM Hydantoin. Now the DMDM Hydantoin got mixed reviews when I googled it and I found that same ingredient in Organix Coconut Milk, V05 Tea Therapy and Herbal Escapes. I'm not saying that's the reason why my hair has been itching and stuff because I never had any problems using those products BUT I've decided to eliminate all those products, including Hollywood Beauty's Castor Oil Hair Treatment because I really don't want to risk it. It is true that you REALLY have to pay attention to the ingredients in the products you buy and make sure they are safe for your skin, and hair. So don't be like me just trying things because it's suppose to be the best and blah blah...check the ingredients first. However, just because I had an allergic reaction to something doesn't mean you will. Just be careful!

OH YEAH! Here are 3 websites I looked at that told me information about these ingredients:

Merry Christmas

Well I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Fine time to say it at 8:05 p.m. right? lol What a beautiful, and busy day it was for me today! Christmas day is also my Grandmothers' Birthday so all the family came over today to celebrate with her. The highlight of my day was all the good food! lol Nah let me stop! The best part of Christmas for me is being with my family and I enjoy giving gifts and seeing everyone's reaction to their gifts...speaking of reactions lol I got bamboozled early this morning!! I ripped open a present and it was a OLD dusty ass VCR... O_o I was like umm...what am I going to do with a VCR? Do they still make video tapes? lol But it turned out to be a prank! I actually got a Wii! Exactly what I wanted :) I got tons of nice gifts and I appreciate it all! My night has just began though...time to hit the night life up with the family! Happy Holidays everyone

Quote of the week

"The way you see the world changes after you start to become who you truly are. Seeking stops. Needing stops. You start to simply, be. A new veil is lifted and you begin to see clearly why things didn't work out the way they did in the past, precisely because it would have prevented you from living your best life. When you go toward and become the things that you Love & Admire you begin to see the Oneness of all that is. No one is below you, no one is above you, everyone is one with the flow of Life. When you get to this place, all the chaos and struggle in your Life will make sense and you will be able to manifest your Heart's desire without delay. To get there, let go of Fear and step into a life of Love."

The Semester is Over!

Well the semester ended on Wednesday for me! I am so happy that it is over yes yes!! I got my grades today and guess what?!? I did an awesome job!! I got 2 A's and 2 B's which puts my GPA at a 3.5!! Now my cumulative is something I need to get up before graduation which shouldn't be hard to do! I'm just glad that all my hard work paid off and that I met my goal of cutting procrastination out of my whole routine! lol So it's time to relax and get some blog posts in before the Spring semester! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day...I know I am!

Sunday, December 6, 2009


Okay I have been slipping on my blogging! I got so many things to share and I haven't done a thing!! I hate my's to basic and shows not one bit of my personality...luckily Christmas Break is coming up so I can buckle down and put some exciting things out...and I need to promote my blog more too...Happy Sunday :)

Rihanna Rated R

Well it's another late night for me as usual!! I should be studying right now for my finals coming up this week BUT I needed to take a much needed music break :) This will be my second review on an album! I just had to pick the lovely Rihanna! I've been a fan of her since her first album Music of the Sun and trust she did not disappoint with Rated R. The three singles she currently has out for this album are Russian Roulette, The Wait is Ova, and Hard. These alone should let you know this album is AWESOME!! lol There is a total of 13 tracks ranging from the fun make ya wanna dance tracks to the love songs. What are my favorite songs? I'd have to go with Hard, Stupid in Love, Photographs, Rude boy, and Rockstar 101. That's damn near the whole album right?!? In all honesty you can just press play on your IPOD's, car stereo, computer, whatever and just ride out to every single track. No jokes!! If you don't have Rated R right now you are TOTALLY missing out!

I finally joined...

Guess what!? I finally joined A GYM!! Yayyyy Me!! I am so so so excited about this right now. I've been wanting to get in a gym for the longest so I can get in shape and get toned up! I also want to get working out on a daily basis in my system for the rest of my life! What better time to start than now? They have a special where it's $10.00 a month, NO CONTRACT and it's $29.00 Annually. You can't beat that right!! So if I were to move or if I wanted to cancel my membership all I would have to do is let them know 1-2 weeks in advanced and they cancel it! Planet Fitness just opened up a location in Port Saint Lucie, but the official grand opening is sometime in December. So when they open I will definitely be ready and motivated!

What time is it?

It's shoe time again!! You all know I just can't help myself when it comes to shoes that catch my eye :) I mean if I'm able to buy it at the time I get it! I FIRST saw these shoes like a year ago on one of my friends facebook page, and I was like OMG I got to have those shoes! I could never find them because she lives in a different state and I never forgot about them. SO a year later (so what) lol I saw them in Dillards like 2 months ago and I didn't get them because I didn't have money to splurge at the time. So on Tuesday I got them!! yayyy! The designer is Steve Madden and they were like $60.00! Great price right!? I can't wait to wear these haha! These are the type of shoes you wear with skinny jeans, a skirt, some shorts, or leggings... Tell me what you all think!

My new fave style

Okay this may look a lot like a normal twist out but it's not! I'm always on youtube watching youtubers style their hair and what not, and I'm always reading blogs. So I first saw it on where she did twist in her hair with rollers to create the curly fro look. Then I saw it on ItsMsHeatherNicole's youtube! Now my hair didn't look like her's because her hair is TOTALLY long lol BUT I loved how mine turned out!! The first pictures are the rollers I used the very first time I attempted this style and I figured out the yellow rollers were wayyy better for my length, and they gave me a tighter curl. The last two pictures are from my second attempt. I took them out this morning and I LOVE IT! I just love the curly fro look and that it stretches my hair out! I would love to do a tutorial on youtube but I am going to wait until I get more subscribers!! I hope you guys like it! OH YEAH! Products used: I conditioned, put my Garnier Fructis leave in conditioner in and my fave oils on wet hair and that's it!!

I love your Blog

Well I was awarded the I love your blog award from one of my fellow bloggers :) Thank you very much MiMi, Check out her Blog it's pretty dope :)

Quote of the Week

"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you wont. It's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere." -Barack Obama

I finally did it!!

So lately I have been contemplating whether or not I should do youtube videos mainly because I have no idea what my videos will consist of! I finally decided to upload my first video on My Natural Hair Journey which is basically a collage of pictures from when I had relaxed hair, during my transition, my BC and so forth. I still have no idea what my other videos will be about but over time I'm sure those ideas will evolve! If you would like to check out my first video the link is right here: Hope you all enjoy it!

Hot Heelz

As you all know, I went to Charlotte Russe today! lol They were having that usual sale where you buy one pair of shoes and get the second pair for $15.00! So these beautiful gray heels were originally priced at $29.99 and I got them for $15.00 plus an additional 10% off with my Student ID! Awesome right!?! I just couldn't leave the store without these because I have been wanting a pair of gray shoes for the longest! So tell me what you guys think! I think they are totally HOT! Overall, today was a good day lol

These boots were made for walking...

OMG! Today was like some much needed therapy for me. I FINALLY got some BOOTS!! YEAHHH BOIIIEEE haha! I haven't bought a pair of boots since 2005-2006. Crazy right? Well I went to Charlotte Russe today and got these boots for $42.99 plus an additional 10% off with a Student ID. If you are a student or you have a military ID you can get 10% off at Charlotte Russe! What I like most about these boots is that they can be worn long or short. I like both looks but the short look just does something to my soul! lol What's cool is that it's like having 2 shoes in one! It's definitely not cold here in Florida at all but I will still wear them lol...Maybe a cute dress! (I have a visual in my mind) I'm going to find a dress from this website and show you all what I'm talking about. So tell me what you guys think! Do you like these boots period? And do you prefer the folded look or the straight look?

All the Conditioners

One thing I like about being natural is experimenting with all types of conditioners to see what works best with my hair. There are so many to choose from and TONS that I still haven't had the chance to try! Since I have been natural all the conditioners that I have used so far have been Suave Naturals- Coconut; V05- Strawberries & Cream, and the Herbal Escapes Free Me Freesia; Organix Tea Tree Conditioner and the Coconut Milk Conditioner; Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner; AND LASTLY Herbal Essences Hello Hydration. I haven't had the opportunity to order any conditioners online yet but eventually I will :) All the conditioners listed above were purchased at Wal-Mart, CVS and Walgreens. So I've got to have a favorite right? I can't pick just one though! lol I really never like to buy the same thing twice BUT I'd make an exception for these. My top 3 would have to go to V05 Strawberries & Cream, Organix Coconut Milk and Herbal Essences Hello Hydration! Mainly because they smell the best! Nonetheless I would recommend every single conditioner listed above to women that are relaxed or natural! So if your looking for some conditioners to try, these would be a great start.

Charlotte Russe is one of my favorite stores so it is my pleasure to pick a shoe from their website. These platforms come in this khaki gray and black, the heel is 4 1/2 inches, and they are priced at $32.99! Great price right?!? I have no idea if these are available in the store or just online but I will definitely be on the look out! Want to know more? Just visit their website

Law Abiding Citizen

So last night I went to see Law Abiding Citizen at Rave Theaters. At first I thought about going to see Couple's Retreat or The Stepfather but I wanted to see something that had suspense and wasn't too predictable! Law Abiding Citizen gave me exactly what I wanted! For those who don't know, the main characters are Clyde, which is played by Gerard Butler and Nick who is played by Jamie Foxx. Gerard Butler is a loving husband and father that loses his wife and young daughter in a horrible way. He hires Jamie Foxx as his lawyer to seek justice for the murder of his family. Gerard Butler doesn't agree with the decisions Jamie Foxx made nor does he agree with the justice system so he made it his mission to prove a very good point. This movie made me feel every emotion possible and I would pay to see it twice! I recommend everyone that hasn't already seen it to check it out.

No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face.
- John Donne

Autumn is my favorite Season of the year. I love the Fall weather because it's just right! It's not to cold, it's not to hot, it's right in between. I love how the wind blows and who the cool breeze feels on my skin....Fall makes me want to love and to be loved...I just love it!

So I went to the website : and created an outfit that I would totally wear! *huge smile* You can view other sets that people made, create your own, and you can even shop for the set that you made yourself! I need to get this for real! What do you guys think?

The Hills Season 5

So last night was the Season Premiere of Season 5 for The Hills!!! YEAAAHHH lol I have been watching The Hills ever since the very first Season when Lauren moved out to L.A. for Fashion School! As far as a majority of the cast, I remember watching them on Laguna Beach. Okay so this season has already got DRAMA!! I'm not doing a complete run down of Episode 1, I'm just going to state my opinion on a few parts that stuck out to me! First of all WHY is everybody so threatened by Kristin Cavallari? (chick in the pink dress if you don't watch it) They are all talking about her and how she is a "man eater" and they seem scared of this chick!! Then Stephanie Pratt....sigh* (far right) wants to take it upon herself to confront Kristin about talking to Justin Bobby (third dude on the left)! Now Justin is Audrina's ex (second chick on the left). Audrina should be able to speak for herself! Cry baby Stephanie should learn to mind her own business lol. Now another thing...Kristin and Audrina aren't friends so WHY can't she talk to Justin? This whole respect Audrina, and that's against that friend code is wack because Audrina and Kristin aren't even cool like that. Justin is a liar and killed me the whole episode saying him and Audrina were really never a couple any way....sigh* If you saw past episodes you would see differently! Anybody notice that every body is hooking up with each others past boyfriends and girlfriends? I guess there aren't any guys or girls outside of their circle worth dating lol....I'm sorry about rambling on and on about this show but this is my favorite show! lol I'm sure the season is going to be full of drama. On that note, the ladies of The Hills need to "man up" and find cuter guys to argue about! P.S. I hope Lauren is having a drama free life!!

I do wear sandals!

I bet you all were wondering does she like anything else besides heels and sneakers! Actually I do! lol I like to wear sandals as well, especially in this Florida weather! It is about time for me to get some new sandals because the few that I own are looking pretty rough! Even though these shoes look a little old school I love them! I actually saw a girl in my class with a pair like this and just had to ask where she got them. She actually got her brown pair from Target. The Sandal of the week goes by the names of "Spalla". These are available at ALDO SHOES in four different colors. The colors are purple, yellow, white, black, and blue. Price? They are actually on sale right now for $34.98 ($50.00)! I want to go to ALDO today but I'm afraid they might not have my size again! sigh* maybe I'll just order these online or take myself down to Target and get them for $19.99! I just lose out on this awesome purple color.

I like this...
