This too shall pass.

It happened. The inevitable. The moment every girl wishes to never have.

The breakup. 

I have found in peace in reading this wonderful blog, titled none other then the breakup blog (love the name).

This too shall pass.

Need your feedback...

Good morning, lovelies!

This is my first year at my very first 'real' job and with it, my first Holiday Party! Our firm has decided to have our party after the Holidays..which personally I enjoy! And I need your help!

Keep in mind, where I work is extremely conservative, so I have three options. The little black dress, the classic red holiday dress, OR to go really big with a sequin dress.

Which dress do you enjoy? What do you think?

New year, new me

Oh hello, long lost friends...

I'm sure many of you are now tackling head on your resolutions. You are not alone. With the beginning of 2014 I have rededicated myself to this very blog.

I fell of the band wagon a bit with my first "real job". I assumed that things would be easier - that laundry would do itself, blogging would be on the regular and Ben & Jerry's would be part of a weight loss program.

I vow to bring you more budgeting tips, quirky fashion and beauty treatments that won't equal your entire paycheck.

Stay true to your  resolutions.

Laugh worthy 'the camp gyno' video

Good morning friends!

Yesterday I woke up feeling a bit...well, under the weather. It was THAT time of the month again. The dreaded week where I hoped that no one gave me a cross look or I just may cry- and Midol was my BFF!

In passing, I mentioned to my friend the woes of womanhood was really getting me down!  Her response? Pretty much the best video in America! I knew right away I had to share this! Laugh it up ladies!

P.S. has anyone considered trying Hello Flo? Looks pretty sweet, and it launches in September!

Just what I needed...

I have an interview on Monday and wanted to start the process of shopping for that perfect outfit! Typically I wouldn't buy something new for one outing - but this was a very special occasion! I knew that I needed something that would give me that extra boost of confidence!

Prior to shopping I was skimming through Pinterest for ideas of what to wear on a first interview (after all, this is my first, FIRST interview). I came across this image that had been pinned on various boards and wanted to share it with all of you. It was the reminder and inspiration that I needed.

You are ALL beautiful!!!

Whatcha know about strawberries?

Goooood morning love bugs!

This morning I was looking in the mirror and just about had a conniption! All of those years of long nights in the library along side of my best friend coffee had done some serious damage to my teeth! EEK! I didn't realize how slowly I had been staining my teeth, until it was too late - post graduation! 

So, it began, time to search out a budget friendly method to my newest beauty battle! I knew automatically a professional whitening trip to the dentist was out of the budget. I turned to my friends first to see the products they may use! Similar to the cellulite seaweed wrap recommendations - the alternative was a bit too pricey. I just don't have the funds to pay $89 for a spa UV light treatment. Swing and a miss! 

It was time to consult my online buddies...I turned to my fellow economical bloggers for alternative treatments for less, in-which I learned that Crest made the most fabulous whitening strips on the market! The downfall? The product leaves your gums sensitive, which was not an option for me being the foodie that I am (I'm curvy for a reason)!

It was time to dig a little deeper into the blogosphere. Alias! I found the most wonderful recipe which I can already see a result from in just one use! The best part? It's all natural and AFFORDABLE! Yes, my favorite word. The recipe is used by the beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones herself and removes the stains (including coffee) and discoloration from your teeth.

Similar to the cellulite answer, we have to start with paying a visit to our kitchen...

Mix together:

One crushed ripe strawberry
1/2 teaspoon baking soda


With a toothbrush and leave mixture on for five minutes, remove with regular toothpaste.

I am going to repeat this once a week when I apply my cellulite scrub for a regular weekly beauty routine. Welcome back my pearly whites!
