MmMmM Smoothies

Are you a smoothie person??? For my healthy eating I have been having a protein smoothie for breakfast every morning. They seem to keep me pretty full, I was worried about drinking my meals because in the past I just wasn't full enough. I do different smoothie versions every morning just to see what I like and what I don't like. So far I've come up with a few good ones and a few HORRIBLE ones.

This is probably my most favorite one so far! I have cut out dairy milk to try and lose more weight, I've heard this really helps. I really like using the Naked coconut water. Its not very sweet but I really like the texture it gives my smoothie. See I'm kind of a texture person and when I use the unsweetened almond milk its really thick. So I prefer Coconut water. I also use no sugar added frozen blueberries, raspberries, spinach, a vanilla protein powder and a hemp protein powder. The reason I use the two powders is because the hemp one is BROWN yes BROWN and it taste BROWN so for taste purpose I had half vanilla and hemp.

HAHA look how old our mixer is. We have such vintage old appliances in our house, you really can't find a mustard colored blender anymore. But hey it still works wonders. I pour my coconut water in and then my berries, sometimes if I want it a little more sweet I will put in one pack of Truvia sugar. I then put in my protein powders and then spinach last. I'm not sure why I do this order but I'm a little OCD so it always goes in that order. LOL

Yummy look at that spinach on top. You can't even taste the spinach in the smoothie. Which is great if you don't really like vegetables you can add it to your drink and you'll never taste it!!!

Its such a pretty purple!!! And full of nutrients. This will probably fill two glasses because I used the whole container of coconut water. It was 11 oz I usually use only 8oz. But that's OK it tastes good so I will drink all of it!

 Its so YUMMY and if you look carefully you can see the spinach pieces in it. I drink one of these every morning. Sometime I add different fruits like bananas or peaches but I really like the taste of raspberries and blueberries! Make it to your own taste. Try one smoothie for breakfast and see how much you lose. In 5 days I lost 6lbs. Some people may differ but that's how much I lost.

Yummy smoothies and hoping for shorts

Awesome New Nail Polish

I can't say enough about this nail polish!!! It's new to the market and only avaliable at CosmoProf at the moment. You do have to be a licensed cosmologist to get it, but you may be able to buy it from your local stylist if you have a CosmoProf in your area. There are 78 shades so far, most of them are creams but there is an array of frosts, glitters, and shimmers.

"Step in my Blade"
Pretty blueish shimmery grey almost like slate blue
Venique named most of there shades based off shoes. They surveyed women and 75% said that shoes were their number one accessory! 2/3rds of that 75% said that Nail polish was there second choice in accessories. There newest collection is Jimmy Who "Step in my Blade" is a part of the collection. I got two other colors from the regular line up of nail polishes

"Rainy Day Boots"
Fun grass green St. Patricks day is around the corner

"Funky Wedge"
A really deep shimmery red
I painted my toes with "Funky Wedge" Each nail polish has a special top coat that contains Sil-Tek, a silicone-based ingredient that creates flexibility so your polish won't chip or crack. Your nails expand when they are wet and contract when they are dry. Being a hairstylist my hand are constantly in water so I'm excited to see how long this lasts. I can't stand chipped nails. Each polish also contains Diamond Dust in the top coat so it makes it extra shiny. I would say you should still use a top coat just to seal it, but try it with and try it without to see which is better. The dry time is about 10 mins which is normal for nail polish. If you guys would actually like me to swatch them on my nails so you can see what they look like let me know and I will put the swatches up on here for you to see.

Completely obsessed with nail polish

Questions, Questions, Questions????

Really how do we really deal with "unanswered" questions???? I'm really trying to figure this out and wrap my finger around it without losing my mind. Lately I've really been trying to sort certain "unanswered" questions out in my mind and it is just not happening. I don't know if I'm secretl stressing over things I will never have the answers too. But I can't get them out of my head..... what do I do??? Seek out these people who have the answers??? One person that is not possible with...he passed away. I have to most unanswered questions for him.
Sometimes I feel like I won't completely move on until I get the answers, but is it possible. I feel like someone knows the answers besides him. Honestly I'm thinking about finding a pyshic to help me. Do you guys believe in things like that. I want to believe so I can get some relief.
But for that one person who is still here won't answer the questions I need him to answer and I feel I will never know the truth. Do I really want to know the truth, will it just hurt me more, will it make me realize the person he really his. Was I really fooled that whole time???
Aghhh I just don't know what to do sometime but just sit and cry and answer the question the way I would want the answers to be, but that is not life or realistic. So I guess I will Just go on living life with "unanswered" quesitons.

Broken Heart

This is how my heart feels at this point! I really don't even know what to do with myself. I absolutely hate this feeling. I have felt this only one other time in my life, and never thought I'd have to feel it again. When I'm upset I get really sick to my stomach and can't eat or keep food down. I put on this smile and tough girl persona in front of everyone but its killing me inside.  I get why everyone feels this way but they don't see him the way I do. And yes sometimes things aren't the best, but what relationship is. You have to work at things. I just don't know what to do. I'm so close with my parents and I truly care what they think and how they feel, we are just a close knit family. But I don't want to have to go thru my life saying "what if"  and I have definitely questioned one other "what if"  in my life many times when my ex passed away. Would he still be here if I had given him another chance? I can't answer that, and I don't want to say that to myself again. I honest to God don't think I could handle it emotionally if I lost someone else I loved so much and had that "what if" thought. 
I have cried so much in the last two days this is how my eyes feel. I know this isn't like my normal posts but I just need to write this down and get it off my chest. I know things need to change for them to be better, but is he willing to put in the work? or just see it as winning or losing!! Our relationship is NOT a game, its not about who wins or loses its about both of us winning. Do any of you guys have break up advice??? I've had my friends to keep me busy this past month but these last few days have been the worst. It probably didn't help that I talked to him about our feelings but I needed it. We both want it but don't know how to get it or change each others ways. And if you can't give you can't get.
I just hate that my heart feels this way. Broken, alone, hurt, scratched, cut, shattered, not whole. Do we try to make things work ONE MORE TIME? I want to SO bad, but will it be different? Can he change? Can I change? I guess only time will tell and I hope time doesn't run out. I may be on here more then normal just to occupy my time.
Thank you for listening or reading even if you don't know me. This just sucks so much and I hate hurting so I hate to hurt someone else and have them feel the way I do. Well I'm off to try and not cry anymore!!
xoxox and a broken heart

Angry Bird Nails

OK so I guess I'm a little slow when it comes to finding out about games, because I guess Angry Birds has been out for a while and there are many different versions. Well I recently found the game while going thru some apps and I decided to try it out.... BAD decision, because now I'm obsessed with this game! I kill my phone battery constantly playing it and I get so frustrated when those damn pigs laugh at me when I can't smash them!!! AGHHHH! 
And as all of you know I'm also somewhat obsessed with YouTube and I love watching nail tutorials and I love makeup ones too. One of the girls that I subscribe to is IHaveACupcake and she does the coolest nails. So thanks to her she helped me see how to do Angry bird nails.
Here is one hand that I did. I painted the pigs too!

Here's the other hand with the rest of the characters.
It was pretty hard to do. And very time consuming!! But it was so worth it...I loved them and I got a lot of compliments on them. Having the birds painted on my nails DID NOT aid in helping me beat any levels easier!!! Darn it!!!! I have downloaded every version that is available so I will be entertained for quite some time!!!


Neon Green Fridges and Zebra Chairs!!

So a few posts ago I said I was updating my salon and I have been, its just been taking me alot longer then I thought! So there is going to be TONS of pictures for you guys to look at!!! Yeah picture time!!

This is what my fridge looked like before.

I taped off the top cause I painted it a purple color.
This is the color green I used its called "key lime"
Heres the fridge painted first coat....its coming along

Heres the purple I used its called "rich plum"

Yea!!!! It turned out just how I wanted and I even
added the chewed up gum magnets that I love!

This here is a stray cat the we feed, we named her "Shimmy"
She has this really weird hair loss disorder but I looks
like she has muscules on her arms lol but its just
her hair missing! She keeps me company while I paint!

I found these two chairs at a garage sale for $2.00 each!!! CHEAP but they
See look how nasty there legs are!

NOW CLEAN!!!! I used 2 Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to clean
these chairs.

The cushions were just a plain blue.. not my style! Lol they are pretty squishy
but you can see the blue tape covering some of the ripped parts so
im going to cover them

I painted one a light blue color called "Aqua"

The other one I painted a color called "Grape"

Well crap now I have this huge "grape" paint mark on my arm

Here they are together!!! SO CUTE!

This is Mama she will lay on anything you put on the floor and of
course she had to test EVERY cushion out before resting on this one!

And this is Bubba he loves to lay on paper! He thinks he's a King!
My mom was trying to make an outline of my cushion to we
could sew them.

Here is the finally product....I THINK IM IN LOVE!!!!!!!
I want a whole set of this in diff colors I may just go back to that
garage sale and see if they have any more left!

I will be taking pictures of my shop so you guys can see what everything looks like all put together! Stay tuned to see my newest obsession of angry birds! Thanks to IHaveCupCake on youtube I painted my nails like angry birds!!! SO CUTE can you say I have time on my hands? lol

Have you ever seen a blue cheetah?

So we all know my love of animal print!!! Well tonight it was time to change up the nails! I had this one color on it was the Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Rockstar Pink the pic doesn't do it much justice. It is a very pretty sparkly color but it is a B*!@H to get off!!! Let me tell you! I thought I was gonna need a jackhammer to get it off but I did!
Such a pretty colored glitter it has like pinks blues purples and silvers in it!
"Rockstar Pink"
So since it took me about an hour to get it off, I figured I'd go with something a little easier this time! Cause you know me I can't commit to one nail polish design all week(unless its glitter, I let that chip off lol) and I haven't done cheetah nails in a while so I figured... why not! I used the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On as my base color(I forgot to take a pic of it) 

This is One coat of White On
Second coat of White On
These are the 3 blues I picked out (from left to right)
"The Real Teal" "Pacific Blue"(It smells like a SKUNK) & "Blue Me Away!"
"The Real Teal", Pacific Blue", & "Blue Me Away!"

Start by just randomly putting dots on ur nails, they can be messy the messier the better
I dont know what black I used the name was rubbed off. Take your dotting tool (found at any beauty supply store or EBay) and make little "half C's" around the blue dots. randomly place little black messy dots too to look more like Cheetah print!
Then just apply your favorite top coat and you are all done! So now have you ever seen a blue cheetah.....YES!!!!!! lol I hope you enjoyed the little pic tutorial. If you guys try them let me know and post pics so I can see! If you have any requests let me know and I will see what I can do!

First LUSH purchase!

I can't believe I forgot to load these pictures and tell you about what I ordered from LUSH, such yummy yummy stuff. I love that everything is fresh handmade cosmetics. There are so many things I want to buy from them but for the time being I only got a few things.
This is The Comforter Bubble Bar
Cozy blackcurrant embrace for dreary days
The Comforter is the bubble bar you want when the sky turns grey and you fell like cocooning in a pile of huge, fluffy blankets. Take a deep breath, crumble our blackcurrant and cypress bar, and sink into the massive pink bubbles for a warm, encompassing hug.
I love this bubble bath bar. It looks like a hot pink cinnamon roll! Honestly this thing is so big that I break it into 4 different squares, so I can use it more times! and just a 1/4 of the bar makes SO MANY bubbles. I cant imagine how many bubbles it would create if I put the whole thing in. You might not even be able to find me in the bathroom! lol Ive used it but did not take any pic of the bubbles so when I use it next I will take some pics and it turns ur bath PINK! FUN!!! Oh and this makes your skin SO SO SO SO SOFT! I cant even describe the feeling of how this feels on your skin! AMAZING!!!

 This is the Think Pink
Bold and Sassy Sweetie
While it is sweet. Think Pink certainly isn't shy. Our little pink bombshell is big in vanilla, tonka bean and neroli personality. This combo if oils gives sweetness a bit of a saucy edge. Be sure to pop one in your bath when you need a little boost of confidence. Watch out world!
This little ball is a bath bomb or like a bath fizz and it has a little surprise inside... look at the picture below to see what I mean! I was sure surprised. You can cut this in half but I decided to put the whole bomb in my water. It also turns your water pink!!!
Its a pretty big ball! and it smells so yummy
Well poo the lighting was not very good in this picture to capture the pretty pink that it was.
Ahhh there we go! Such a pretty pink with a little bit of leg!!! lol Do you see those fun little pink dots??????
Little pink hearts!!!!! So cute. They are made of paper and they dissolve in water after a while. They do start to lose there pretty pink color after a while as the start to dissolve, but the water does stay that pretty pink! I did not know there were little hearts inside when I ordered this, when I put it in the water and I saw these little things floating in the water and I was surprised but then happy to see they were hearts!!!

I will be ordering more of there bath products, Ive been taking alot of baths lately and reading some good books! I just started one last week Love You to Death by Shannon K. Butcher. I seriously cant put this book down I only have 48 pages left and I'm pretty sure that I will finish it tonight!!! I really like romance-mystery novels. Well Im off to take a bath and finish my book!
