I'm Back!

Kinda... LOL  I hope everyone had a good holiday and are safe on New Years!
I just wanted to make a quick post of my "New Years Resolutions".  I still have yet to figure out the issue with posting pictures )-:  So until I figure that out this will be more of a diary.  On to my Resolutions!

1.  BLOG MORE (lol, seriously)
2.  Tone up for summer.
3.  Have a positive outlook on life.
4.  Save up for my own place.
5.  Try new & exciting things. ( I NEVER try anything new, ever)

What are some of your Resolutions??  I'll add more as I think of them!

Still No Pictures

For some reason I still cannot get my pictures to work so for the time being this is going to be a typed only blog.  How boring, right? I know... hopefully I can get this fixed.. Anyhow, I'm starting to feel better finally.  Did anybody buy anything today during the coach sale?? I wanted to but I knew I really shouldn't so I contained myself. ::pats self on back::  I'm one of those people who sees a sale and will find something that I "need" lol  But I'm still not working and really need to be saving every penny and not using my credit card anymore... However, I do need boots... You're probably laughing at me, but I truly do NEED boots.  All I own are flats and heels, not even one pair of sneakers or boots.  I was living in Cali for 3 years and really had no need for actual boots.  I got a coupon for $15 off $49.99 at DSW a few weeks ago and I checked out one location but didn't see anything worth the price so I might try another one just to see if they have anything else or if I happened to miss something... However, there are two pairs I found on aldoshoes.com that I might check out... UGH why do things need to cost money?!


Just wanted to let everyone know that today only Coach is offering 25% off all items on their site as well as in-store!  So if there was anything you had your eye on, today would be the day to purchase it.

Happy shopping (-:

Quick Update

I just wanted to say I'm still having issues with adding more photos and haven't figured out how to get them working! GRR.  Also, I've been sick for the past few days and still am not feeling that well... I'm hoping to feel better soon so I can REALLY play around with this and attempt to get it working again.  I also want to work on my layout...it's not really "me".  Anyhow, I just wanted to let you guys know I have not stopped blogging, just having a few issues lol.  Hope to be back soon!!!

Okay, I was PLANNING on doing quite a few posts tonight but right now I'm working on a post and it won't let me add pictures!  It let me put 2 but when I went to add a third it doesn't show up.... anyone know why???  Blogging is not my friend. )-:

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Purple Sweater from A'GACI Review

Now, before I continue I want to say I purchased everything on my own.
A'Gaci has no idea who I am.
Let me start off with a few pictures:
This is the image from the website.
Length on me.


Love the neckline!

Shoulder detail.

As you can probably notice from the picture of me wearing this shirt, it is very long... More like a sweater dress for me which I wasn't expecting.  I'm not quite sure why I thought it wouldn't be so long on myself, I highly doubt the model is 4'11, lol.  The quality is good for the price.  I surely won't be wearing this in the dead of winter without a sweater, scarf and jeans.  Although it isn't very thick, that was evident in the stock photo.  By the sheerness of the bust area and being able to see the models bra through it, one should not assume when purchasing that it will be a heavy material.  That makes me really like this company thus far.  They could have easily altered that to appear more opaque, which would probably attract more buyers, however they did not.  I have washed this sweater dress (haha) once and the color is still great and no loose threads.  I did put it in a lingerie bag to be on the safe side though. 



Quick post.. just wanted to let you guys know www.wetseal.com has a deal going on today and tomorrow.  All clearance items are buy 1 get 1 for 1cent!!!  .....as always, they have their flat rate $5 shipping as well.  Hope you find some goodies.


Ps.  I'm going to try to get a few posts up tonight and approve comment.

Breast Cancer Foundation

Do you like yogurt?  How about purchasing Dannon this month instead of your typical.  I'm not sure about where you live but where I live there is no difference in price from the Dannon brand to the Store brand.  The only difference this month is when you purchase Dannon theres a code under the lid, when it's entered into their website (www.cupsofhope.com) they donate .10 to the Breast Cancer Foundation.  It doesn't have to be the "fruit on the bottom" kind, Dannon has about 5-6 different kinds to choose from and they all have this under the lid.
Maybe you don't like yogurt....try telling family members who do to purchase this brand instead (or any other brand that is doing this as well, its right on the front of the yogurt package!) and give you all the tops to enter into the website.  Personally, I do not eat yogurt but my daughter loves it.  It makes me feel good to be able to contribute in such a small way.  I've (or should I say, my daughter) has already "donated" about $2 already.  It really adds up, and I believe they will be doing this until January, I think I read that somewhere.

NO, I am not being compensated for this post nor am I affiliated with Dannon or ANYBODY for that matter.  I just think it's a really simple way to help out, especially if you already are a yogurt eater.

I love the UPS man!

Not sure why the image rotated since it's not like that when I upload it. ::sigh:: blogspot really doesn't like me!  Anyhow, I ordered a few things during ULTA's 40% off sale they had going on a few weeks ago.  The other two boxes are my LoveCulture and A'GACI orders!!! YAY!! I've already torn open all three boxes but right now I'm getting ready to go to dinner so I will post pictures and let you know my inital responses to everything tomorrow.  Have a good night everyone.

Face Of The Day

Here's what I'm wearing:

Face:Aveeno “Positively Radiant” moisturizer
Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer in Tan
MUFE HD microfinish powder
Clinique concealer in “05 Golden Beige”

MAC  eyeshadow “Print”
e.l.f clear brow gel

Eyes:Smashbox primer
NYX Jumbo pencil “French Fries”
All over lid: MAC “Honey Lust”
Crease: MAC Smoke & Mirrors Pallete (#6)
Outer V: MAC Smoke & Mirrors Pallete (#3)

I did more online damage today...shame on me.  Here's what I got...

[*all photos taken from the abercrombie website]

These were all found on the kids site in the sale section!  Nothing was more than $15 isn't that awesome??  The last item I actually got in a Coral color but when I went back to get the image it was sold out.  I thought it was a really cute layer piece under a plain cardigan since I own about 30 cami's and they're all a plain color with no lace or anything,  I'm such a plain Jane.  I really hope everything fits, I ordered a large in everything but the zip-up sweater I have on right now is a Medium in kids.... the shirts tend to run smaller so lets hope I made the right choice!

I've been such a homebody lately which results in online shopping that I really can't afford.  I hate this rainy crap weather.  I miss Cali right now.  The weather is almost always nice enough to go for a walk in.  New England weather = 9/12 months cold, rainy, snowy.  Cali weather = 9/12 months sunny, nice, comfortable....everything happens for a reason though and there's a really really good reason why I'm over here now and no longer there........... one day I'll know that reason.

Day 3

Day 03; Name a habit you wish you didn't have

**Not my photo, found on google images.

Biting my damn lips!!!  I hate it, I peel them when I'm bored, tired, stressed, annoyed, upset, anxious etc...  I don't even notice it half of the time until I go to put on lipstick and you can see all the little pieces of skin.  How gross!?  I don't even know how the habit began....*thinks* maaaaaybe it's from when I was about 13 and I used to bite my nails but then I got acrylics which helped me stop, maybe I picked up this habit because I could no longer knaw on my nails? ::shrugs:: who knows, all I know is ME NO LIKEY!!

What kind of habits do you have?  This is just one of my many habits, but the only one that truly bothers me because it affects my face/skin lol (btw, I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs)....those aren't part of my many habits.


Turned Up Turquoise

 Currently Sally's beauty supply is having a sale on Orly nail polish 2/$5 and save $1 on two China Glaze polishes.  I wanted to take advantage of both but only took advantage of one sale.  I tend to fall in love with every nail polish color I ever see so I narrowed it down.  Right now I am wearing "Turned up Turquoise".  I also purchased "Shower Together" which I was wearing yesterday but forgot to take pictures before I took it off.  Here's the turquoise color:

^Natural light with no flash, no top coat

^With clear top coat

I really like this brand and color.  I have a few China Glaze nail polishes because I used to work at Sally's so I took advantage of my discount BIG TIME! lol  All it takes is 2 coats to get the color in the bottle.  This shade is a little different than the regular China Glaze colors.  Normally they have a nice shiny finish but this one is matte...still very pretty but with how often I was my hand I need a top coat.  Which BTW, Out the Door is my favorite.  It dries very quickly and doesn't chip off like I've noticed with some other quick dry top coats, but what works for one may not work for all.

Also, I just want to say hello to my new followers!! ::waves::

Some online shopping

I've been feeling a little less than happy lately so what better way to cheer yourself up than some online shopping???  I wasn't too bad, I know I need things for fall and winter after moving from Cali to the east I have nothing.  I stuck to sweaters and cardigans, although I do need boots I think I'm going to wait so I have more options.  Here are the things I ordered today from A'Gaci (www.Agacistore.com) and LoveCulture (www.LoveCulture.com).  I have never ordered from either site before so when I get them I will do a review for you guys.
(All photos are taken from their sites)
From A'Gaci;

I actually got this in black, the gray was sold out in my size.

I loved the purple on the model so I got the same.  I'm loving the ruched sleeves that are in this season!

Got this in gray.  I love that it can be worn with jeans but would also look appropriate with slacks.

From LoveCulture;**Sorry these images are so small, they only blurred when enlarged.

This is just a plain black cardigan but I figured you can't have too many cardigans nor too much black when it comes to fall and winter.

This is called a "preppy v-neck sweater" I thought that sounded cute and is exactly what I've been looking for!  I love these simple sweaters.

Hopefully you guys like my picks, nothing too amazing but things that I truly needed... Now I just hope quality is good and size fits perfectly. 

Day 2

Day 02; A picture of something you cannot live without.

My  Beautiful Daughter.  My life, My world, My everything.

5.  I drive a standard and hate automatic.
6.  My toe nails must always be painted, even if my fingers aren't.
7.  I love Lavender&Vanilla candles and spray, BUT it must be mixed...Not just Vanilla, not just Lavender.
8.  Fall is my favorite season.
9.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
10. I like cleaning.
