Room re-do


      Since I've moved into my new place, I've been chillin in an all pink room. It's an old playroom or child's room. The trim is this awful green that matches the Lizzie McGuire looking wallpaper. Can't hate on Lizzie McGuire though..


      The above picture shows my vanity which was my moms, then my sisters, and now mine. The bottom picture shows all the drawings collected upon my stay. 

      So I decided to go black. 


      Bringing back my early highschool days a bit. The whole psychedelic black lights look nice in the black room with now white trim. I'll post a more detailed post on my room soon.

New hairstyle you can't possibly dread


(Get the pun in the intro title? Hah, love me some good ole puns)

      I'm in love with my natural hair since it's been back. My hair is somewhat tucked into the beanie, no cuts for quite some time still. I'm also avoiding any more dyes! Definitely plan growing it out until I'm lookin as fly as The Little Mermaid. Hehe. That doesn't mean I can't add a little pizzazz, like my first dread lock!! 

      Without the nasty globy wax and other substances, I managed to form the dread within 2-weeks. Just had to keep twisting, ratting, and used the rubber bands for only the first week. Dig my bead stylin in the middle? Made it myself using polymer clay. I really dig the colors, reminds me of planet Earth!

      What's something you could do to jazz up your locks? 
      I'd love to hear your input!!

Room for success


      What's a better way to start the new year off than making room for success? There's plenty on my plate I could do without, and plan to go without by 2016. 

Cigarettes
      If quitting smoking was as easy as getting hooked, I would've quit years ago. At 14-years-old I smoked my first cigarette..that's almost 8-years of smoking! Not sure how I'm going to go about quitting, but once I do I'll be sure to post about how awesome I feel. 

Frienemies 
      Friends don't let friends befriend enemies..right? Wrong. I've put trust and respect into far too many people. Not necessarily because they're worth giving it to, but for other friends or family's sake. I can accept being respectful to certain others, but befriending isn't always necessary. 

Drinking
      With my medications I shouldn't consume alcohol. Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of drinking to begin with. I will miss my whiskey though! Once smoking is legal life will be much less stressful. 
      
Hair dye 
      Being a ginger has it's ups. Honestly there's not many downs on the ginger life. My natural hair color blends nicely with my skin complexion and looks like natural beauty. Not having to worry about retouching roots or frying my hair will spare me lots of time (and keep my locks nice and healthy). 

Meat & Dairy
      Yes, by the end of this year I plan to eat a vegan diet. After reading parts of an "in disguise vegan book", I'm pretty disgusted with the negative health impact from the average diet.

      What's something you could go without this year?

Valentines spirit


      Living with two guys is pretty amusing. They have to put up with the Hello Kitty imprint on their toast, hula hoop on occasion, and currently my festive ways for Valentines Day. Above you see Brian playing Red Dead Redemption eating his daily dose of Heart Lines. 


      I love the classic heart stickers on Valentines. My Valentines include an assortment of Hello Kitty designs. This years design includes cute heart lollipops! 

      How are you getting ready for Valentines Day?

Little Miss Sunshine


      I walk up into my grandparents house to see my 7-year-old sidekick Angelika crying in the living room. I run in there and hug her, talk to her, and eventually practice her spelling words. Really rootin she gets 'Blizzard' down! The point is that it was horrible having to come in to see her upset, no matter what about. 


      Eventually we adventured outside. I rocked her scarf and frozen hat. Hehe. 


      We had a snowball fight. The snow was really fluffy, but there were still chunks? Lol. Angelika looks so pumped to strike me with those snowballs after the picture, Haha. 


My homegirl of course has an awesome pet. This tree frog was adorable yet slimey ahaha. 


      Just stuck like those hand stickey things from the fifty cent machine as it glided do often. You do know those slimey stickey hands you'd throw and it sticks into glass for 50 cents - Promise.


      We be crazy. I love when she sees my facial expression in the camera eventually, ahaha. 


      She insisted I get a picture with no glasses, so I had her put on the nerdy shades. I'll see little miss later after she gets outta school today, glad I've been able to spend more time with her.

Julep Maven


      I received yet another Julep Maven box. Julep is a nail polish brand with various shades, and quick dry time. 


      The box includes three polishes. This included a shimmery pink color, charcoal, and a gorgeous mint. My mothers nail collection consists of pink, pink, and more pink, so she'll be getting the pink polish. I'm loving the charcoal and mint. 


      If you've seen my Time of the season post, you saw my new metamorphic plugs. I thought the effect was damn spiffy, and absolutely adore the plugs. For Christmas I got my girl a metamorphic chillum. Now I recieve this bonus metamorphic polish! 


      Please excuse the messy job. I put the metamorphic coat over Julep's mint polish. The subtle shimmer is perfect for a casual look. I'm going to add a few more coats and see how it turns out.


      They included the polishes, a bonus coat, and junior mints. Junior mints! They've had my heart for as long as I can remember. Another plus about Julep, polishes are all vegan friendly and made in the USA. You can visit julep.com to sign up for a Maven box. It's worthwhile and affordable.

      I'll be holding a giveaway to receive 30% off Julep products. Two lucky winners will be picked by next week. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the giveaway!
