Kettelbell Workout

Are you looking for a fun new way to workout? Have you heard of kettelbells?
This is my favorite new way to workout, here is a video from Self magazine. Try it out and let me know what you think. I have seen results and have had people tell me that I look thinner. YES.

Let's drink to this

To the beach and back

Mac has done it again, they have made the cutest beach inspired line of makeup called "To The Beach". The collection features sea creature motifs and hints towards a vintage inspiration. Lots of corals, pinks and a bit of green & blue make the perfect summer palate. Look at the pretty bronzer blush it looks like a wonderful combo and it even has a seahorse design. The dramatically Dewey faced bronze models set the tone for this vintage inspired line of cosmetics. Oh whats this? A coral tote? Its perfect for holding a towel and all of your toiletries for after the fun in the sun.

Relaxing Day In LA

I was on my way to Los Angeles by 1 pm on Wednesday, after about an hour and a half of driving I had made it to my 36 mile destination. I was excited because I was going to spend the day with two wonderful guys, Jeff and Andy. I have known Andy since I was in 1st grade. I parked the car and waited for Andy to meet me downstairs, and thats when the fun began.
Andy and Jeff live in a really nice apartment that is a great size considering they live in LA. I wish I had my camera, its broken, boo-hoo. Otherwise I would have taken a bunch of photos chronicling my trip. I knew in advance that I had to make a trip to the grilled cheese truck, after that anything goes.
After seeing the apartment and getting a bite at Sky we headed out for a top secret mission, the secret stairs. Have you ever heard of this? I had no idea until that day that there were trolley cars that went through the hills of Los Angeles and that there are numerous stair cases through out the hills in the area. I got to go o…

Hawaiian Drama

Book me a flight to Hawaii because this dress is begging to get lei'd.
Yes I really did just say that, sorry for offending anyone but I'm so excited over this dress. I was at the Fullerton Mercantile flea market ad I saw this colorful dress in a sea of dark dreary rack of vintage clothes. I'm drawn to color like a vampire to blood so I had to check this dress out and see what the deal was.

Upon a closer look I knew this dress had to be mine so I walked over a mile to the closest ATM machine, I know its not that far, but it was hella hot today so a mile seemed like 4. Did I just say hella? Haha I never say that word but really today was the first really hot day in Socal. I made my purchase and immediately started to think hmm where am I going to wear such a unique dress? This is what I came up with Palm Springs Dinner & My other crazy thought was I will save this dress for my wedding day! ok enough day dreaming already... Dont you just love when you find a piece of clothing t…

Top Of The World

I'm about to run out the door and be on my way to Laguna Beach to go hiking at "The Top Of The World" (my 3rd hike this week) followed by a swim in the cold pacific ocean.
Should be lots of fun, if I don't fall over from exhaustion. Happy Days Are Here Again.

Oh Shit

Summer time Remixed

I did all the hard work for you and found a bunch of songs to get you into the spirit of SUMMER!

Let me know what you think of these songs.

Fullerton Farmers Market

For the last few weeks I have made it a point to get out and have some fun, despite being in the "I'm a student and have no life because I work every weekend" funk that I was in. One of the best cures for the student with no life is the Fullerton Farmers Market. Why you ask? Well lets see you can have a beer, buy handmade soaps, enjoy dinner outside, run into people, see lots of pets and take photos. So sometimes this is all I need to be put back into a good mood before I clock into wok Friday-Monday. Take a look at what I experienced at the farmers market last week.
This was the sunset that evening, very beautiful indeed.

I assure you it was not raining that night.

This dog is so very cute, he looks like he is smiling just for me.

Street fair people walking on by, having a relaxing ole time.

The line just kept getting longer by the hour.

A rainbow of bikes on the rack.

Ohh look its me, and my neon colored flowers.
