Sparkly New Years Eve Head Band!

Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Ahhhh I could scream right now! New Years is literally around the corner, like its here everyone. I'm so happy about 2018 and I have no idea why really. I'm just really excited for it. I made this really cute and festive headband last minute because I wanted something sparkly to add to my hair but  what? hmmmm Ummm a sparkling headband duh.

This headband is super easy to make and you can make bunch of them for your friends.

You Will Need.

Hot Glue Gun or
E600 Glue (hot glue gun works better in my opinion)
A stretchy headband or a standard headband
Small foam sparkly balls
Large Pan to stretch headband over

Make sure the headband is stretched while you glue the balls on or you will be left with gaps when you put it on

*If any glue gets on your pan, use dawn dish soap let it soak and rub off with your finger

Let it dry completely which should only take maybe 5 minutes with a hot glue gun

Whos' Ready For Some New Years Fun! 
2018 Here We Come!!!!!

Actually Achieving Your Goal Can Be Scary

Saturday, December 16, 2017

Whether its weight loss, or that promotion you have been working towards, achieving a goal is one of the best feelings ever! But what happens after you have completed that goal and you have what you wanted?

Have you ever spent time working towards a goal and then you finally reach it, now what? It's a time when you start to realize you put your mind to something and actually achieved it. How Amazing is that right?!

I've recently had this realization and was wondering do other people have this. I reached a goal and now I feel like wow I did it, now what? Something that you could of been striving for is now here. Whether its a job, weight loss, etc. you reached that goal, now what?

I feel like once you reach your goal, you have so much more confidence. and you just want to achieve more. instead of staying in that position. Its like getting a  promotion and now your like wow I've worked so hard for this, but I want more,
does anyone else have that feeling?

The best feeling in life is completing a hard challenge that you put on yourself.

I do have to say reaching a goal is the best feeling in the world. Someone once said don't sulk about the loses and celebrate the wins. Your achievements are a part of your life good or bad. But its always amazing to reach those desired goals and feel accomplished.

let me know what or how you guys feel after you've reached a goal?

until next time!

New Year | New Space | New Decor Inspiration

Saturday, December 9, 2017

Well I Moved!! Yayyyy!! I love the space I moved to, it literally has so much space. I went from a smaller room with a larger closet, to a larger room with a smaller closet. But Hey, Beggers cants be choosers right, and I just cant get over this space and what I plan on doing with it. So today I wanted to share with you some ideas for the new space.

If your ever struggling to create the setting you want in your room. Look no further because Pinterest is your best friend!!! It has pages and pages of topics from life hacks to bedroom decor and food recipes. All under one roof from people just like you. If your ever in the need of a little inspiration. Pinterest is the key. Okay now on to my style.

I'm currently leaning towards more of a sleek white look, with touches of wood and texture. But still keeping my flare of {style me bright}  if you know what I mean. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE COLOR! but I may be leaning towards something different. We shall see.

I might just keep my bright white them with hints of color. But for now here is the inspiration I'm going for, but with a little color lol 

And as for now my bedroom and office are in the same space so I want a style that can mesh with both my sleeping area as well as my working area. But maybe down the line I'll create a super colorful office!! That's definitely a plan in the works. 


I love the bright white, with hints of gray and wood



Let me know in the comments if there were any styles you really liked!! I would love to know

Are You A Morning Person?

Sunday, November 5, 2017

Mornings are my favorite part of the day! I love waking up early and seeing the sun come up and the birds chirping (as cliche as that sounds lol) It's just a beautiful time of day.

Sleeping in makes me feel so unproductive!! And I HATE that feeling. I feel more tired then I did before I even went to sleep. My body is always super drained and I feel like my morning passed me by.

I love my mornings! They are peaceful and it has a different feeling than In the afternoon. Through out the work week I wake up at 5am everyday. So when the weekend rolls around I feel bad sleeping past 8am. Its such a different feeling waking up early and getting your day started. Even if its just going to dutch bros and grabbing coffee. (I love dutch bros haha)

I also feel like we should make the most out of our days and by doing that is, WAKING UP EARLY! Making good use of your daylight is the greatest feeling. Then when night comes you can relax, go out to eat, whatever you want.

I find myself more productive during the daylight hours. Mornings are usually the time when I run errands, because the stores are not crowded. I wash my car, grocery shop etc. I just enjoy my mornings so much more than I did a few years ago.

Are you a morning person or a night person?

A Lifestyle Change?

Saturday, November 4, 2017

I made a conscious decision to start watching my health. And by watching my health I mean, really looking at the things I'm putting into my body. Whether its food, body care, products, and even water.
Most of the time I found myself eating to just have a meal, or to satisfy my hunger, but the food really had no nutritional value. It was just a filler!

I felt like CRAP...

I ate out quite a bit and that type of eating cost money, money that I definitely didn't have lol.
And the most important reason, I felt myself getting sicker and sicker. I was always tired and never wanted to do anything. I felt very unproductive and just not happy. On top of that I had gained weight that I was very unsatisfied about.

WHY clean eating you ask?

Cleaning eating to me is adding nutritional value to your body and not just stuffing it with a bowl of grease. the same way some people really value their car,  they put the best gas, always get oil changes, and keep the car clean and running properly is the same way you should treat your body.

when you actually realize that your body is the home where you essentially live 100 percent of the time and there's no leaving it, EVER!. you have to keep it clean and alive and developing. or else you are going to feel tired and restless and unproductive just like a broke down car.

There are so many books, and articles and research you can also do about cleaning eating, now I'm not saying I'm going vegan or anything, because I still think dairy is an essential part of our development. I'm just letting you know what works for me, and how It has impacted my life positively.

I've Tested IT!

I'm such a nerdy nerd that I had to give myself a test run to see how I felt when I ate fast food/ processed food versus natural food ,and let me tell you total difference!!!!

The week that I ate clean, I felt light and happy. I didn't wake up feeling stuffy or extremely sleepy. I had more energy throughout my day and I didn't have to rely on coffee 2 or 3 times a day. It was just natural energy.

Fast forward to eating fast food and going out to eat, and just snacking on chips I felt so sluggish and irritated all the time. My patients was horrible and I was always hot. On top of that my stomach may have had to much gas TMI (I know) but I'm trying to get my point across.

As much as I love to eat green leafy foods and beans and fresh wild caught fish. I have my days when I have a bag of cheetos and I'm not ashamed to say it. everything takes time and I am happy with my progress so far and where I'm at. yes I have weak days when I just want to binge watch my favorite show with every snack in the world, but its overcoming those weak days and making them stronger.

I hope to share more on my cleaning eating lifestyle and share some fun recipes and just hopefully help anyone one out there with cleaning up their bodies as I am doing the same thing myself.

Feeling Bored? 10 Ideas To Brighten Your Day!

Monday, October 2, 2017

1.Eat Something Healthy
Whenever I eat healthy I always feel 10 times better. I love fruits and vegetables. So sometimes putting together a little array of some tasty healthy foods you like is a great start to better your day.

2.Write A list of all the things you want to accomplish in life or for the day
I always like having a visual outline of all the things I want to accomplish in my day. It's so satisfying to check off all my items as I do them. So grab a cute notebook and make a to-do list

3.Take A Long Bath Or Shower
Sometimes refreshing yourself can make the biggest change in your mood. So grab your favorite bubbly bath and relax.

4. Listen To Music
I love listening to my favorite music. Sometimes It can even give you a little inspiration.

5.Take A Drive
One of my favorite things to do, honestly. Take a long drive around your city, and maybe even stop at a few stores. That always gives me time to clear my mind and listen to some of my favorite music.

6. Read a Book/Magazine
I love my home magazines. If I'm ever bored I enjoy going to the store to pick up my favorite snack and a few of my favorite magazines and get to reading or your favorite book.

7. Draw/Doodle
Get a sketch pad and doddle or draw whatever comes to mind.

8. Bake A Sweet Treat
This one is my Favorite! Bake something sweet like brownies or cupcakes. YUM YUM!

9. Ride/Rent A Bike
All over Tempe,AZ they have these really fun bike rentals. Go out and rent a bike and take a tour around the city. *They have bike rentals in a lot of cities. Check them out where you live

10. Call a Friend or Family Member and go out
This is always a fun way. Call a friend and hit the town, even if its just something to eat.

Happy Fall / Revisiting My New Years Goals

Happy Fall Everyone!!! YAYY! Wow, Can you believe summer is over, I couldn't be more happy and sad at the same time. Fall is my favorite favorite season ever. All the colors,  the weather and the clothes. I just love it, But I really appreciate  those long days in summer, and all the delicious summer fruits! I'm definitely going to miss them.

Since we are 10 months into the year, I hope we all have been sticking to our new year goals (that might be something you haven't heard in a long time) and I hope most of you have achieved them. This year I've actually been trying my best to work towards those goals. Usually by this time of year, I've set my goals aside. But NOPE not this year. I plan to stay on track and knock out the rest of my goals.

It feels as if  sometimes we write goals and we are so excited about them and then months later we are like ohhhh those goals. So I just wanted to give a reminder and little boost to still work towards those goals, because the year Isn't over yet.

With a full 3 months left I feel we can knock some of those out and add another patch on our achievements .

Its never to late to open up that notebook and try to achieve some of those new years goals you have written down. Stick with them and stay consistent. Just because you made your goals for this year doesn't mean the process cant continue into next year.

I challenge you to go back and complete a goal or keep pushing and continue the goal you are working towards. Its never to late and we are all working towards something.

If you have any specific goals your working towards let me know in the comments. Maybe someone has the same goal. Or hey! Maybe I do as well.

Keep On Pushing!

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Ahhhh Summer is Almost Over! Can you believe it?? Well ..summer may be almost over but I have a sweet treat to share with you today! I'm such lover of sweet things! I like anything sweet, especially yogurt bars. I always buy the ones from the store (that are in the ice cream section) but then after reading the ingredients I thought, well... I could probably make my own with the same items I make my smoothies with. Which is what I did. I made these super super simple yogurt bars. And of course after I make them I go on pinterest and find even more awesome recipes for yogurt bars. Which I will definitely be using in the future, But I am very happy and proud of my little bars and they taste so delicious. Perfect for this heat that we currently have in Arizona.

You Will Need

Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt
Mixed Frozen Berries (Or Fresh Berries)

I like to start with mixing my honey and berries. I love coating the berries in honey, so that I know there sweet and tasty for when me mix everything together.

How To Have a Productive Online Class {Back To College}

Monday, August 14, 2017

1. Treat Your Class Like A Regular In Person Class
One problem that people forget is just because its an online class doesn't mean it shouldn't be taken as serious as an in person class. It is a class you paid for and it counts towards your GPA. Remember That!

2.Set Up A Class Binder
I always set up a binder dedicated to each class. It doesn't have to be a 3 ring binder, it can also be a folder with pockets. 3 ring binders just work best for me when it comes to organizing.
I Include in my binder
-Class Syllabus
-Print Outs
-Due Dates
-Anything related to the class I try to include in my binder. That way I can always take my binder anywhere and I have my assignments in there, if I need to remember something.

3.Stay Organized
Make sure you have a calendar or planner with assignments due and deadlines. Always stay on top of your work load. The more work you do at the beginning the easier it is towards the end. Its way to hard to play catch up with online classes, so always stay organized and on top of everything.

4.Set Aside Time Everyday
This is such a key component to having a productive online class. SET ASIDE TIME!!! On your lunch break you can work on a paper or whenever you have down time work on something. You can always set days to work on your class work. If you bust out work during the week, the weekend will be for relaxing and partying. Or if its easier for you, do your work on the weekends. Just always set aside time. Online classes were made to be flexible.

5. Log and write [EVERYTHING] With online classes, if things are out of site, they are out of mind. So always remember to write down everything that you may forget later.

6. Don't take online classes if you don't like working from home. I love being in my own space (in my bed) working on papers. I can focus so much easier. If you are not that type of person then online classes with definitely be a struggle for you. Discipline is Essential

I hope you found this super helpful, if there is anything I missed that you do to have a productive online class, let me know in the comments below.  Also if you have any questions about online classes, let me know as well. I'd love to answer them for you.

Happy Back To College
