A huge victory leads to a Great Depression

Last night was an amazing historical event. The U.S. Women's national team won the World Cup. The game was incredible and the girls were nothing but superior to how they've played the whole tournament. I was so happy to see them do so well...

But then the final whistle blew, and it was all over. I don't know if it was seeing them cheer with joy and relief and happiness, or if it was all of the tweets and facebook posts that did it. But as soon as it ended, I felt like a part of me died a little. 

Perhaps I am being slightly dramatic, but I can't help but feel like a dark cloud of depression has been hanging over me since 9:00 last night. I can't seem to smile. My head is in a fog, and I can barely focus my eyes on anything. All I want to do is cry. 

Having something to look forward to and to talk about and show pride in has been amazing for the past month. What do I do now? 

I have this weird personality flaw where I will obsess over something and then when to is done or over, I don't know what to do. It's almost like a death that I have to overcome, but with something so minor as sport or a band or a hobby. 

Women's soccer was my way of coping and getting through all of the stuff that was going on with my health that was scary. And now a new chapter is about to begin. 

For now I will have to focus my attention on packing for my upcoming move in a month. I will have to fall in love with bubble wrap and getting rid of things and reorganizing.

Until the summer Olympics 2016...



I have never done a blog sale before, so as a beginner, please care with me. The majority of these items are sealed, never open. Some are used barely. The used items have been sanitized with alcohol. I am willing to ship internationally, however, due to customs I am not able to ship nail polish internationally. Sorry, not my choice.

I will accept paypal and venmo payments only. If you are buying something, I expect your payment promptly, as I plan on shipping things right away. Shipping charges will be decided based on weight of the item, and obviously location. I will be using the paypal shipping calculator to figure out shipping costs.

Once an item has been purchased, it will be removed. If you think the prices are too high, I am willing to negotiate. I am also willing to combine orders for shipping savings.

If you are interested, please EMAIL ME: subject BLOG SALE.

Lazy day off

When I have a day off from work, I plan all of the things I would like to accomplish. I would love to film videos, organize my makeup, take photos. But really what ends up happening is that I will go to one or two stores to run errands, and come home and be lazy. I love snuggling on the couch with my little xena. She currently is snoring away as I type up this blog on my phone. She's a silly little thing. 
I still have a bunch of things to do today, I can't help but enjoy this time away from the chaos, with a warm dog in my lap, casually browsing the Internet. Such is my life on a day off from work.

Too hot to handle

I'm officially dying from the heat. Well not literally, but it's very hot outside. I'm sitting here in Potbelly unable to move. I've got my farmhouse salad and I've already gone through one 20 oz diet coke. My whole body is aching in my business clothes. And I am dreading going back outside to walk to work. I love that I don't have to get in a car to get to my favorite lunchtime escape, but I hate the walk back, knowing that I will be soaked for the next 4 hours. To make things worse, my tattoo is in the healing phase which means it itches like crazy! ohhhh joy. 

In all seriousness, I do not enjoy heat. I work in an office environment where I have to be on my A game all day. I also wear 3/4 sleeve tops to cover my tattoo, which is miserable! 

My saving grace is knowing that I can bare all tomorrow on my day off. Well, not go out in the buff, but at least in a tank top and shorts. 

Are you in an area where heat is destroying your daily life?

50 Shades of Haaaaay

Image Credit:

I got the book “50 Shades of Gray” a while ago. Actually, I bought it when it first came out on paperback. I’m not going to lie, I was intrigued, and wanted to see what all of the hype was about it. I read about ¼ of the book before I put it down. I lost interest…quickly. I feel almost uncomfortable reading it.

So here we are a couple of years later, and the movie comes out. I chose not to see it in the movie theater, on account of 1. No one would see it with me and 2. I was afraid that I would be surrounded by horny couples or wives trying to get husbands to spice things up.

I added it to the Netflix queue when it came out on DVD. I still put off watching it for a while. Finally, I just started the movie (Anna was there too) and just watched it. It started off slow…almost cheesy.  It was kind of like Twilight meets some kind of sex movie. But then once we started watching for a while, I got sucked in. And it wasn’t the sex parts either. I was more interested by the emotional connection (*spoiler* and lack thereof from Gray) And then the movie just stopped! I ended with tears down my face and anger for not having a resolution to the plot line!

All in all, I liked it. I am contemplating as to whether or not I actually want to read the book again, and possibly the other books.

Have you read it? Let me know what you all think.

One month later

Hello world. I'm still alive. I have been quite the slacker when it comes to blogging. When it comes to YouTube as well. My apologies. I really have no excuses. I could say time- I don't have enough of it. Or energy, I lack in that department too. But I made a promise to myself that I would be better in 2015 to blog, so here I am. Back to it.

Here's a life update...

My 9 to 5 job (aka it pays the bills) has picked up drastically. We are busier and that means less energy when I get home. I have also noticed a trend of staying past when I am supposed to leave. #dedicated 
My trip to Houston, tx was amazing. Life changing. And unforgettable. I truly met some awesome people and I am so thankful that I was given the chance to experience what I did. 

My health is not so good. I don't want to get into it too much, but I am forced to make some extreme adjustments to my lifestyle that suck. I means lesbehonest no one wants to go through life without soda, junk food, and carbs. But I have to. My bad habits have caused my body to say "hey you, stop it or you are going to die". So now I am a vegetable eating, water drinking, vitamin taking and hopefully excercising lady. I don't have a choice, I want to stay alive. (More details will follow soon)

My annual Dallas vacation is in 2 weeks. I sooooo need this. It is nice to take a break from my daily routine and then come back to my girls and be refreshed and the best me I can be. I can't wait to see my bestie again. (Photos will be on my Instagram page)

Youtube plans are in progress. I have much to say on camera and much to show. 

No buy. Yep, I'm trying it. I need to focus on spending money on valuable things and less frivolous makeup purchases. It'll a all be worth it. (Oh and as I hit landmark weight loss goals I will buy makeup prizes)

No wedding/marriage date plans yet. I know I know. I am the worst bride ever. But it will happen soon. This summer I hope.

That's all I can think of for now. Frequent updates are on Twitter, Instagram, and my facebook page.

I usually like to keep my 9-5 job private from my YouTube/blogging job. I want to let everyone know a little bit of information about my life outside of cyberspace...

I have worked for the same company for 4 years. I kind of fell into this career out of desperation, but I am very thankful for it. Since starting in 2011, I have gone from one location, to another, and in 2014, I settled into my office that I am currently at. There are programs for continuing education that help with "moving up" in the company. I completed them in record time. I frequently work at other job sites to help out when needed. I am a hard worker (yes, I feel confident in saying that)

For 4 years, I have tried and tired for a specific position. This position is basically in addition to my normal job, and I would be required to help train new employees. Time and time again, I have not been given this position. I have shed tears, been frustrated, and asked myself why I wasn't good enough. 

I was approached early 2015 by the head of the program. They wanted to re-interview me, basically a call back for an audition. Last week, when I was out sick from my allergic reaction, I found out that I got it! I was beyond ecstatic! I got an email with my flight plans and itinerary for travelling to Houston, Texas, where the corporate office is. I am so happy about this trip in April!

I also wanted to mention, without mentioning it, that the company I work for, once again made it in the Fortune magazine top 100 companies to work for. (again, if I said how high up we are, you would know where I work...let's just say we are close to the top) The company consistently takes care of its employees with bonuses, benefits, and fun work events.

I have held in my excitement for too long. I worry way to much about how my success hurts the feelings of others who have not had the same success. Enough is enough. I am happy, a hard worker, and I busted my ass to be where I am today.

Though I would love to quit my job and do YouTube and blogging as a full time paid career, financially, it is just not possible at this time. 

Maybe someday...
