Monday blues

My boyfriend and i just love some I-HOP.. We escaped at like 11pm to have some of those special holiday meal deals.. Well let me tell you , when we saw those walnut pancakes an cinnamon apple crepes on the commercial we had to have some. Omnomonom sooo good! 

Hope you enjoyed my lil outfit photoshoot by the way. It sucks having to ask people to take my outfit pic so this time i did it all by myself...well, with the help of the handy-dandy timer on my camara lol. My sister was like "what are you doing you weirdo?" my response- ... "ummm  taking my own picture for once haha" 

Day 10/ Epic failed attemp at baking cookies

Ugh, so that Blue Bonnet bitch ruined my cookies AAAAAHH!! It's bad enough that I'm sucky at cooking but then this butter-heffa goes and puts salt in her butter... ok, you could at least let me know in the packaging that ur shit has salt...then again it would probably help if i read -umm "vegetable spread" is that butter?? Well u know what miss Blue Bonnet, i made gross cookies because of your ugly dumb butter and you are gonna sit there looking pretty in ur dumb ugly little blue hat smiling at me huh??  well FU

Epic fail i know but ill try again today hopefully with better results and will definitely use another brand of butter. anyway tutorial coming soon if i succeed ... here is a sneak peak of what i used (replace butter for real butter unsalted)

On a jolly-er note!! here is my outfit of the day for Sunday

shoes bcbg- acquired at last chance
jegging-last chance
red top-express
tan wrap sweater- name brand
necklace - cant remember
Paid retail for what item?? - none
haha i love bargain shopping =D

oops left these out..

So i did the math and so far a have only  wore 21 of the 30 items of clothing allowed, that's pretty good i think. the challenge is on for the next 21 days but I'm starting to feel like this is too hard. I wanted to cheat so bad and add other items of clothing... actually i was thinking about switching one of my items out for a diff one cuz i cant find anything to match that grey throw half sweater...ANYWAY so i wanted to wear this cashmere quarter sleeve sweater today over my grey shirt but unluckily i couldn't find it.. i was so sad .. like where is my clothes going?? i hope my mom didn't raid my closet with out me knowing and send that one to my cousin. She always does that it's so annoying ... its not the fact that i give her my old clothes that's fine i love my cousin and rather have her get it than just donate it to the goodwill but stuff that don't fit me anymore is fine... but hello can you ask me first if I'm done with that?? ugh like my BCBG dress from my sisters wedding i did not want her to send that away... i loved that dress so much and she just up and stole it from my closet like a sneaky lil child .... when i get off work i will go on a massive laundry search for my precious cashmere sweater cuz i really like that one and it would be a shame if i never see her beautiful mother of pearl big buttons again : (

OK enough about this attachment to clothes moving on to the actual items outfits i completely omitted due to lack of energy ...

above we have outfits 2 and 7  
The reason I'm headless woman today is that i wasn't having a great face day. I had been at work for 10 hours and it def. showed i looked like death's mother...a.k.a as blacky panda eyes circles

oh and by the way later this day i found out i left my cashmere sweater at my sista's house lol sorry mom... but I'm still holding grudges for that pink dress

Thanks,give(me my food)-ing

Booooo for random ass people infiltrating family circles!!! There should be a law against this type of behavior... Random ass people making unfunny jokes targeted toward people they don't know, (other members of the family) not my idea of how i want to spend my holiday season... but since people want to invite random ass people to family gathering i guess il have to withdraw myself from the upcoming gathering all together...
Another annoyance of mine: long stretched out fucking fake ass prayers when you're a hypocrite... I don't have any problem with praying in particular, there should be a longer than usual prayer in Thanksgiving... The level of fakeness and the words said is what bothers me ,, when your are lying to God ur probably adding on the hell points buddy. Soo word of advice, don't do it !!!! Also don't be coming up in here wanting somebody to feel sorry for your ass cuz i am not good at that .. Double GGRRRRRr!!

anywaysssss here is what i looked like on Thanksgiving day... in my "choir girl outfit" according to my boyfriend ---waht a meany head i know, but i like it and that's all that matters
Ignore the handsome men this is my outfit damm it !! jk

On a more happy note, my moms cooking = bomb!!! She sure needs to rub some of those skill on me cuz im not the kitchen type, but maybe when i grow up (haha never). ok here comes a peek at what my mouth experienced last night... ready set go

day 5

Don't mind my smile I'm not very happy today ... As a matter of fact its been a lame day over all... shut down for all emotions. feeling numb would be better than all the feelings of disgust , resentment, hate, annoyance, repulsion, shall i keep going..?  All these ugly type of emotions all directed at "one who shall not be named" but sadly <<<(another emotions see) i am not capable of no emotion . I have yet to master that skill on the Non-human Abilities handbook.... ugh anyway today has been kinda monumental but in the opposite way that i hoped ... for once I'm wishing that the holidays weren't coming ,,, but another skill that i haven't mastered is stopping and or rewinding time so i guess ill just have to deal with it, and move on. but thanks for fucking us all over "one who shall not be named" !!!!!!!!!

day 3

Today I'm wearing :

Oh my, what a day!!!

Nothing out of the ordinary went to work, then had and ortho appointment after that. I must say, all the dam assistants either are angry at the world or just really distracted ... i always get cut ,pinched, my bonds snapped off, a tooth hit by a metal object or a combination of the 4 if I'm really unlucky that day .. ugh braces talk i know i know I'm 20 n still in braces but as far as I'm concerned only four more months and my pearly whites will be ready ... but that's if i wear my rubber bands like a monkey on crack addicted to flavor/n feel of tiny rubber elastics.... anyway back to the rest of the day where my Sissys and mommy went to lunch that was nice and fun and then i headed over to my boyfriends casa where like always i had a nap... i always nap over there its kinda silly since we should be studying for his test but ahhh who has time for studying when there is sleep ... ill just learn through meditation now that's skills...
now I'm back at my house and looking forward to the rest of the week Thanksgiving is almost here and that's something to look forward to don't you think??

Today im wearing
sorry kinda burry the lighting sucks in the bathroom

Im at work all day i know sucky but at least i get to blog ... i had to sneak into the bathroom to take the picture real quick and sneak one in when there was no customers here but hey... a bloggers gotta do what a bloggers gotta do ... alright so im loving these bangs right now .. my hair gets done so fast in the morning now

but do you guys think they make me look like a lil kid ?? either way im loving them right now...

another thing im loving right about now is this awesome ring  

unexpected dashes of gorgeous in this little ring i love it...

30x30 challenge

I'm officially giving up clothes shopping !!! It's only for a month tho so don't panic...for the next month i will not buy one single item of clothing.  i am doing this because i have way too many things in my closet that i don't even touch. My boyfriend gets mad cuz i don't wear half the stuff i own... men.... who understands them??. First they get mad cuz we shop, then they get mad when we wear sweats around he house, then they want us to just magically look like super models all the time... ugh too many unreasonable request ... well i do what i want anyway boi ... enough venting ...

This ban will help me save my money for the holidays so.. kudos for that. On the other hand, to make this whole ban a lil more of a challenge and also to prove to myself that i don't really need to be doing any shopping in the first place, i will be doing kendi's challenge 30 by 30. For those of you that don't know, or are too lazy to click on the link provided and find out for yourself...i will briefly  explain ...
In 30 by 30 you have to pick 30 items of clothing from your existing closet (don't cheat by going shopping the day before you start the challenge little sneaky) and you have to work with that to make your outfits for the next month so that means lots of mix and matching ... some things don't count as items, thank god !!! for example accessories, jewelry , hats, underwear, coats are all not included in your 30

I am aware that this can be a potential mental trap for myself because if i fail at creating these outfits one; i will look like a fool and thus my brain will go into a  mental breakdown, in effect that will signal my entire being to just shop shop shop until my closet is full to the top. On the other hand if i successfully complete this challenge (by successfully i mean i manage to not look like a clown and ppl dont catch on that I'm wearing the same thing day by day) i will be able to piece together my clothes more creatively all while saving myself some money.

alright enough talking lets get to it .Here are the pieces i chose...

shirts: Cargo silk button up , red quarter sleeve long shirt, coral ruffle top, black fitted turtle neck, grey turtle neck, stripped blue quarter sleeve top, loose peoples liberation chiffon top,

jackets: gray quarter sleeve jacket, camel sweater wrap, white sports jacket, grey ruffle ribbon crop cardigan,

pants: AE skinny jeans, grey boot cut slacks, black jeggins, cargo skinny,

skirts: gray pencil skirt, textured black n white tulip skirt, purple fold skirt

dresses: Red strapless tulip dress, black empire waist

shoes: red Jessica Simpson peep toe heels, black snake design black pumps, pink pearl accessory flats, black bow boots, brown equestrian calf boot.

(pics coming soon)

Love makes things real

THERE was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; his coat was spotted brown and white, he had real thread whiskers, and his ears were lined with pink sateen. On Christmas morning, when he sat wedged in the top of the Boy's stocking, with a sprig of holly between his paws, the effect was charming...

"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"
"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."
"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.
"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."
"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"
"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
"I suppose you are real?" said the Rabbit. And then he wished he had not said it, for he thought the Skin Horse might be sensitive. But the Skin Horse only smiled.
"The Boy's Uncle made me Real," he said. "That was a great many years ago; but once you are Real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always."
The Rabbit sighed. He thought it would be a long time before this magic called Real happened to him. He longed to become Real, to know what it felt like; and yet the idea of growing shabby and losing his eyes and whiskers was rather sad. He wished that he could become it without these uncomfortable things happening to him.

Sooooo cute to think that friendship and love is so powerful. I hope that i can be real for ever. Me and my best friend who i love, we will get married someday and will always be real. Our love will get stronger as the years pass like the horse n bunny we will grow up but always stay real. in our hearts we will know that we are loved. n no matter how old we get we will still see the beauty in each other. i love it so much i almost wanna cry my eyes are all watery

 I can't wait to have kids and read them this for bedtime! Ah.. i can see it now, all curled up under a blanket waiting patiently for mommy to start reading, tentatively listening to my every word (but that wont be till years from now so don't get excited ppl)

A house is home

Today I am thankful for our home ... Yes it's been a struggle but life came full circle for us,, we are thankful and together!

Growing up we had it pretty good. I'll admit it, my dad has always spoiled his girls...we are his pride and joy and most of the time we get we want and if he cant get it for us or better yet he will build it . jk but no really he will do what he can to make us happy ... then something happened...

On August 10th 2003 Our family had a terrible car accident. My Dad had terrible headaches for weeks and finally the chiropractor suggested my dad have the doctor do a scan on his head. He developed a blood clog in his head from being impacted in the car accident .. later it was decided he needed to get surgery... both of my parents were unable to work for months while he recovered. Meanwhile the bills kept piled up so we were forced to move from our beloved house

I think i must have been in high school when my parents decided to relocate our family to the dun dun dun "stick" house. That my dear, was not fun. In fact, I thought my life was over when my dad showed us where we would soon be living ... I remember it like it was yesterday, He packed us girls up in our lil Chrysler and drove us up the street made a few turns then on Extension Rd a right then a quick left. He slowed the car to a creep and pointed at the shack and said "There it is! this is our new house..."

I laughed and shouted "What! Dad show us the house, stop being funny..." bahbahhah "this house is fugly!" . He stopped smiling and said "Blanca this is the house ... "

"Look dad this isn't funny i am not going in there" I hate it ! I'm not living inside that !,, and what are those sticks for? (the 2 by 4's framing the cart port) Is this even a real house?? I was mad. At that point i wanted him to look back at us, smile and say "just kidding girls!! I tricked you" and drive to the house that really was ours. ...
but he didn't do that. That house was the one we would live in for the next 4 years. :(

For the longest time i was mad at my dad ...why would he do this to us? make us live in such and ugly house? ssoooo mean i thought ... it even had mice when we first got there ..

Ok let me try to explain this monstrosity of a house.. it was a two bedroom house. who makes a two bedroom house ?? like c'mon that's like and apartment and a small lil laundry room and a kitchen ohhhh but wait! there was a pool; a very empty and dirty pool. There was also a big ole back yard for my dad the handy man to store all his tools. (which by the way we where robbed a total of about 5 times in that house). Don't let me forget the carport area- yea i said carport because the house was so old they probably didn't even make garages back when this house was first built. anyway that was being built into rooms , should i mention that took like 20 million years to get built....

Long story short, i had to sleep on the fold out couch for over a year and cuz i started to have back problems. They put a real bed in the living room and that became "my room".

there is so much more stuff i could complain about in regards to this house but I'm not gonna bother. We live in an awesome house now and there is no use looking back.. I'm happy and will be thankful for our blessings. After what happened yesterday at my sisters house (her evil toilet flooded her house luckily everything is fine now) i am glad that as a family we have been blessed to have a roof over our heads we are all alive after that terrible accident. And now we don't have to worry about a mortgage or a loan being kicked out or an embarrassing house.

We are lucky its true...

Have you ever lost your sock?? I know i have! Do you even sit and ponder where the other sock ends up ??  One time i watched at cartoon where there was a sock monster. He was blue and hairy and fat. They sock monsters like to live in peoples' laundry rooms. They do this cuz they steal the socks from the dryer they only like to take only one sock from a pair and watch the humans go crazy when they couldn't find the other one. That's a pretty good theory ... what else could explain the sudden disappearance of socks... well luckily i have a tutorial to make good use of your lonely socks with no pairs. It's a Christmas craft. Just in time for the holidays.  

Making snow people has been one of our family traditions for quite some time now. It's so much fun to make these and did i mention cheap.

Items you will need:
old sock
a hot glue gun
fabric markers
googly eyes
twigs for the arms

 Grab a cup of some sort and pour your rice into the sock

Make sure you make your first rice ball is nice and plump - this will be the base or your snowman/woman and you want it to be stable. This will also determine the size of the rest of the body so if you want a fat snow man make this mall the pretty big.

When you get a nice size going, push the rice down into the bottom and make a round shape for the body.  Use your thread to secure the ball. Tie around the top part of ball about 2 or 3 times.

Do the same procedure for the next snow ball. It will start looking more like a snowman in a second. don't cha start doubting me !

When you complete your three balls of rice. there will be some left over sock on with that you can make the snow mans hat. Fold the leftover fabric down to make the shape of the hat.
 Once you're satisfied with the shape for the snowman,  Hot glue the bottom snow ball to the top snow ball around the rim. This will help for stability. We don't want our snow people to collapse their arms are brittle and they probably won't be able to get up by themselves.
Pick out your eyes! i like jewels for eyes, but you could either draw them on or use googly eyes

 Glue them one be careful not to burn your fingers!

If its a girl snow person make her look preetty !!
 use another sock (colorful one preferably) to Make her accessories . hot glue, hot glue ! I used a bow for the hat, she is so cute!
♫OH u fancy huh !OH u fancy huh nails done hair done everything did - this is her song ♫
 Use buttons or jewels for her nose and body accessories
 I drew on her mouth with glittery fabric marker but any marker will do.

 Next use some twigs for the arms. Why not give her a candy cane to hold.  Some blush to show she's cold, it's snowng out side !  Matter of fact,,, "I'm made of snowflakes honey!"  tadah!!! you have a wonderful snow- woman to give you that Christmas spirit your heart has been yearning for ... and sock monster if your reading this- go kick rocks cuz i found something to do with the left over sock!! boo ya!!! i win !
