From my last blog post, I showed a picture of a nude nail with gold sparkles. Well, I had to go purchase Essie "Sand Tropez" and Sephora by OPI "Only Gold for Me", and I have to say they look amazing together!! That picture does not do it justice. My mom and I went to the mall the other weekend to go to Bath and Body Works, I bought 4 different foaming soaps and a cute metal soap cover. I have also recently purchased a blazer from Forever 21, and some black dress pants and grey dress pants from Charlotte Russe for job interviews. Also, I bought a dress from Forever 21 that is a one shoulder navy dress because I got invited to Sigma Nu's Anniversary (Semi-formal)!! I am so so excited and can't wait to post pictures!

Onto more important news -
I will be getting surgery on my knee December 5th. I finally went to the doctors to see what was going on, and my orthopedist made me take an MRI and told me it was a bone growing off of my femur (osteochondroma?). So on the 5th, I will be going under the knife. Boo. :( Hopefully this will alleviate all the pain I have in my knee whenever I walk or run.

Until next time,

How are yall doing? It is finally fall, which means layers!! Lately, I have been addicted to Pinterest. Here are a few of my inspirations (nails, hair, outfits) for the fall season!

Nude polish + gold sparkle = love

Scissors, tape, and nail polish. Simple.

White v-neck tee, jeans, graphic scarf, & big colorful bag.

 Fishtail half up-do. I will be trying this out later in the week.

Jobs and Working Out

Hey everyone!

Sorry I have not been updating this at all.. I have been sooo busy with work and finding jobs (which I have found a few I am applying to, yay!)

Just a quick update on my life. I have been soo soo happy lately. It feels so good to be home and with people who love me. I have been catching up with old friends and new friends. I love my Cans/Erwoods family (I work at Cans, Erwoods is right next door). Everyone is amazing and I couldn't ask for better people. I just got a second job working at Adele's. It is an Authentic Cajun restaurant, yumm! If you didn't know, I am Cajun, so this restaurant is right up my alley. Ruth and Marc are the owners and they are so sweet! :)

Anyways enough of work, let's talk about what I want to get into.

Working out.

Yes. Working out.

I have been slacking on the working out lately, main reason is my right knee has been giving me problems since senior year of high school. I have a calcified tendon growing off of another bone and when I run/walk, that tendon rubs against the skin on the inside and starts filling my knee up with fluid. Gross, I know. I will need surgery eventually, but I don't want to slack anymore on the working out and getting in shape (especially for the Police Academy).

So behold, the Tone It Up girls, Karena and Katrina.

These girls are beautiful inside and out and I can't wait to start their program. I have been watching their youtube videos for over a year now, and I have finally got the motivation to start doing some of their workouts. My ultimate goal would be to do a 5K or even a 10K (maybe after knee surgery). 

They posted a program to help train for a 5K, and I think I will start on Monday. :)

Hopefully this chart will keep me motivated! And I get to rest and relax Fridays and Sundays! :) Perfect!

I also want to try the Shredmill workout! 

  • 3 Minute Brisk Walk
  • 3 Minutes Jog
  • 60 Second 'Sprint'- as fast as you can
  • 60 Second Jog
  • 60 Second 'Sprint' ~ just as fast as you can run- this speed can vary

Wishlist Wednesday

Hello loves!

I decided to do something different today than "W.I.L.W". So here is my wishlist of items I have been wanting to buy (but don't have the money) for FOREVER!

1. Urban Decay's Naked Palette - $48

Look how pretty these colors are! There are 12 different eyeshadows included in this palette. I could make a million eyeshadow looks, from light to neutral to smokey. It now comes with a brush instead of the 24/7 eyeliner (which I also want to try), which is kinda upsetting, but I guess I could use an extra eyeshadow brush.

2. Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer - $19
Benefit claims that it is the "world's best concealer". I love concealer, so this will be my next purchase at Ulta once I get paid. 

3. Benefit's They're Real Mascara - $22

This mascara is a brand new product Benefit just came out about a month ago. I have read reviews on it, and everything I have read has been positive. I like mascaras that don't clump or flake during the middle of the day, and supposedly this mascara does neither. So that is a plus in my book.  Only drawback I have is paying $22 for a mascara.

4. Hot Tools CeramicTI Tourmaline Curling Iron - $40-50
So, some of you might be saying, "A curling iron? Girl your hair is already curly." Well yes, my hair is naturally curly, but sometimes I want to curl it from straightened hair to get Kim Kardashian type hair. I can't do this if I don't have a curling iron, which is why this one is on my wishlist. The 1 inch barrel seems to be the best choice for me right now, but who knows, I might go with the 1 1/4 inch.

5. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda - $7

I have to have this color. It reminds me of China Glaze's For Audrey which is like a Tiffany's blue. Barracuda is a gorgeous pale blue creme, which is perfect for the summer! (Although summer is almost over *sad face*)

6. Sigma Beauty Premium Professional Brush Kit - $149

This brush kit comes with a brush roll, and 15 brushes total. There are 7 face brushes, 7 eye brushes, and a lip brush. Look how soft and durable these brushes look! I have only heard AMAZING things about these brushes, and I can't wait to get my hands on this kit.

7. Sigma Beauty Bare Palette - $35

This palette comes with 8 different neutral eyeshadows (I guess I love neutrals), and are supposedly super pigmented, which is a plus. I'm sure if I had this palette my everyday eye makeup would consist of Elope on my lid and Act in the crease. Also, it comes with a brush with a pencil end and a blending end, which is Sigma's best selling brushes. Yes please :)

8. Bath and Body Works Three Wick Candle - $19.50
These candles smell SOOOO good. I bought 2 of them for my birthday when they were buy 2 for $20, which is a STEAL, and they lasted me a good month or so burning them everyday. My favorite scents from B&BW are Japanese Cherry Blossom, Sensual Amber, and Fresh Cotton.

9. Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray - $6

Sometimes I want my hair to have that beachy look to it, and hopefully this sea salt spray will help me achieve that look. I have never used a sea salt spray before, but I have heard good things about Not Your Mother's hairline, so I am willing to try this spray out. If it doesn't work, oh well!

10. Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray - $29

This stuff helps your makeup to last all day/night when it's warm, cold, humid, or rainy. I could definitely use this to set my makeup, especially right now when the temperature gets up to 100 degrees.

11. Betsey Johnson Lady Luck Horseshoe Drop - $40

How freaking adorable are these!!! I love the horseshoe with diamonds (maybe because I am a Colts fan), so this pair of earrings are SO CUTE to me. Plus, I love the pink bow and rose. :)

Let's add up the total amount of dollars I would have to spend to get ALL these items. Drum roll.....
Grand Total - $420

Well I don't think I will be spending this much anytime soon. Maybe one per month, since I finally got a job!! :) 

Until next time,

It's Saturday!

Hello loves,

It is finally Saturday, and that means yesterday was movie night. Well, I went to see Crazy, Stupid, Love last night with Kyle, and I must say I LOVED IT!!! It was the perfect combination of funny, cute, and romantic and the cast was fabulous! Oh and of course you get to see Ryan Gosling's "photoshopped" abs. ;) If anyone wants to see it, GO! I totally recommend it. Here are a few of my favorite clips in photo form from the movie.

 So cute <3

"Seriously? It's like your photoshopped!"

Soo soo funny

I love this trailer <3

My Thursday nights are complete again. On Thursday night the new season of Jersey Shore premiered.

Yes, it's my guilty pleasure. I can't wait for the rest of the season in Italia! So many funny and interesting things are to come the rest of the season. Everyone tune in on Thursday aka Jerzday at 10PM! :) TAXI SON AQUI!

On another note, I have finally finished unpacking! My room looks SO cute and so girly now! I may post pictures some other day, when I get around to charging my camera.

So, I have been listening to a song on repeat lately.

Just A Kiss - Lady Antebellum

I can't get enough of it, and it is exactly how I feel right now! :) LOVE LOVE LOVE IT <3 <3

Alright well I am going to eat some watermelon because I am craving it. Hehe!

Until next time,

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hello everyone! <3

So this is my first post on this blog! I am so excited to start one since I have been wanting to for about 2 years now. I have some exciting things planned for this blog and I can't wait to share them with everyone!

I am going to try and do "What I'm Loving Wednesday" every week. But enough of my rambling, let's get started!

1. Georgia

I have missed my home SO much! My family, friends, and just the atmosphere of southern comfort. I've been in North Carolina for the past 3 years for school, and I did not really enjoy it for various reasons I will not mention on here. But I am so much happier now that I am home and back in Atlanta! :)

2. Jenna Marbles

This girl is amazingly funny. I can sit here all day and watch all her YouTube videos over and over (yes, I have done this) and still laugh. She just uploaded one today about her thoughts on Shark Week and all I can say is HAHAHAHA. I know all my friends watch Shark Week, but I do not which is why I found this amusing. If you have not seen it yet, please go and watch it.

3. Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips
These things are wonderful! Usually when I whiten my teeth, they get very sensitive, but when I use these that is not the case! I have noticed a difference since I have been using them, and I plan on continuing to use them until the box is empty.


Yes, So You Think You Can Dance. I LOVE this show. My two favorites are Melanie and Sascha. I was so happy they both danced together, and I would be happy with either one winning. Oh! Melanie is actually from around where I live so that is pretty awesome too.

5. My Foundation Routine

These two products are wonderful together. For the past 2 years I have been using Laura Gellar's Balance and Brighten. This product is amazing. You can wear it alone or on top of foundation for a flawless look. The foundation I have been reaching for the most has been Revlon's PhotoReady. It gives me a very dewy look, which I absolutely love. If you were wondering the color I am in it is Cool Beige. I will not be switching up this routine for a long time, unless I find another foundation I am more in love with. ;) If anyone has any recommendations though, let me know!

I believe that is all for today's "W.I.L.W". I hope you all have had a wonderful Hump Day! ;)

Until next time,
