I had received “Atonement” and “The Other Boylen” girl on Netflix and checked them out. “Atonement” was kind of slow, but the story was actually good, it made you realize how your actions and those of other people can change your life. I also enjoyed “The Other Boylen” girl, which now that I think of it, kind of had the same point, people’s actions creating drama.
For all of you who don’t check out my DollFace Blog (shame on you…LOL) I’ve been invited to the Dallas Burlesque festival next weekend.
Awesome, plus its been awhile since we’ve gone to a show.
I really want to get something really cute to represent myself and these are my top 3 favorite choices. So…feedback would be great!!!
PinupGirlClothing website. They have the best vintage inspired pin up clothes. I told myself I was going to start buying one thing once a month from there to grow my wardrobe. I also love the fact that they have bigger sizes for us curvy girls!!!
Well hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
PS - One of my bestie bloggie friends Miss (Soon to be Mrs) Rhiannon is doing an amazing project. Its about woman and beauty...and I think you all should take a minute to check it out. The project sounds very cool so check it out here.

I finally put some actual effort into my printing project and bought a photo printer. I went with the Canon Selphy CP760.
(which I am still trying to figure out)….Plus it’s PINK!!!
The pictures come out even better than going to the store and getting them printed. Plus if you sign up for a photo editing site, you can add your own frames and print them up. I am on my way to be a printing fool!!!

This weekend the BF and I took in a movie (DUH) and saw Legion.
Shopping was also on the agenda, and I hit up Forever 21. I never use to shop there, but now I can’t get enough of that store. They have some of the cutest stuff that can actually be dressed up to be work appropriate (and then they have other stuff that is only appropriate on the Red Light District).
The rest of the weekend was spent chillen at my place, the BF watching the game and me standing in my spare bedroom looking at the mess on the floor and walking out. My spare bedroom has been a disaster since I moved into my place. I really need to get it into order, so I can use it as an office, but every time I walk in there it’s like a black whole that sucks out all of my energy. So instead of cleaning I watched this crazy movie on Lifetime called the Pregnancy Pact.
Anywho, before I go I have to show guys a sneak peek of something I am working on. More details to come....

Goal – 20lbs
Pounds Lost – 4.5
I’ve been slacking in the exercise department. After I got dishearten from the videos I bought, I’ve made no effort to find a new program. I really need to start exercising so it can kick-start my weight-loss, eating changes won’t do it alone (wow, I sound like an infomercial) But I am happy that I lost 1.5 pounds for the week.
On a brighter note, my birthday is in a few weeks and I’ve been asked several times what I want. Just like my issues with Christmas its always hard to know what I want, but I was smart and started a list a few months back every time I saw something that I wanted.
even more super awesome!! (source)
Hot Pink Hello Purse
Do I need to say anything further...really!! (source)
So, I've been drooling over this desk for months. This pictures sucks but its a frosty black with shiny white and silver butterlies on it. Its classy but girlie at the same time, and a MUST for my office. (source)
Yes, Birthday Gods I would like you to deliver him in all his hotness...but on the real side, he is coming to Austin and tickets for me and my little sister would be
Chest Piece Tattoo
I've seen so many girls with these amazing chest pieces and I've been thinking it might be my next piece. The BF has a kick ass oneso I need to step up my game. (source -unknown)

Old Navy was having a killer sale and I did some major damage. I got a hundred dollars worth of stuff for less than 40 bucks…it was insane and I LOVED it!!
(Old Navy had these glasses in a bunch of colors, I just had to get a pair...and yes, I know this picture looks like a mug shoot as my mother so nicely put it!!)
(They come in black too and I really want them....but I think I would have a nervous breakdown spending that kind of money on shoes twice...LOL!!
The rest of the weekend was spent cleaning out my messy closet. I read something that said color coordinating your clothes can help you stay organized but also save you money (it allows you to see what you already have, versus buying the same thing over and over) It has also made me realize that I own way too many clothes!!! I gave a bunch of them away to Goodwill, but it didn’t even put a dent into my stash. I really need to get better about not spending so much money on clothes (yes…I am snickering too!!)
Oh ya…I had some time for baking too!!
Random side notes ...how AWESOME is this necklace I got off Etsy.

I was in the process of taking pictures of all the stuff, and then thought I am not a beauty blogger (actually I was being lazy and took like 2 pictures and was over that idea). I love eye shadow in a major way, and got two of these Amuse compacts for under 5.00.
I also ordered a ton of the NYX round lipsticks and after going through everything, realized I ordered the color REA twice. If someone wants it (its going to much of a hassle to send it back…it was only 2.00) let me know and I will send it out. The color is very neutral and I think can work on every skin color (I made the BF let me try it on him, to prove this theory…LOL). I found this picture on line, to give you an idea, so holla and its yours!!

Project Fix Fat Ass Week 1 Update (01-03-10/01/10/10)
Goal – 20lbs
Pounds Lost – 3
Things have been looking pretty good so far, I was stoked when I got on the scale and saw 3 pounds less. I’ve been eating a lot better and drinking more water than Nemo, which seems to be helping a lot. The calorie king book I bought has really come in handy; it has stopped me from some disastrous meals. On the real side, its amazing the amount of calories you can consume in one meal.
Last Monday I was pumped to do my workout, I got on my cute little outfit, headband and matching sweatbands (I mean if your going to do it…at least be cute about it) and got ready to go. Surprisingly Loco stayed out of the way, as I think he was scared of what was to come. I turned on the video and lets just say it was Horrible. I started with the “Biggest Loser” 30 Day Jump-start and what a disappointment. The chick hosting the video had no personality and kept getting tired in the middle of the workout…um, lady your supposed to be motivating my lazy butt, I did about 15 minutes, before I couldn’t take it anymore. I ended up taking the other one back to the store and now I am in the search for a new workout video. A friend of mine suggested the “Flirty Girl” workout videos.
I know you guys have seen the infomercials for these videos; basically it’s stripping to lose weight. Just an FYI for everyone…I am not really the swirl around a pole type of girl, for Profit or Health. I just don’t see me being into this video, so I am open to any other sensible suggestions.
The BF and I took in two movies (and I will openly admit I had my buttery popcorn at both movies….I did get a small though, so I should get some props for that) over the weekend
First of all I didn’t even know Ethan Hawke was still alive, so that was a shock. "Daybreakers" made me jump a few times, but towards the end I was like really… ”great” ending, but it’s a new twist on the vamp story!! "Youth in Revolt" was cute and funny, I think I could have been just as happy seeing it on Netflix though.
The BF mentioned to me about doing a Vegas trip for my birthday (which is on the 19th of next month…so feel free to start shopping now!!) That was one of the things I wanted to scratch off my list for 2010, so I was pumped.
Here is where the problem comes in for….(start playing sad music…you know the kind they use to always play towards the end of Full house, when you were going to learn a lesson) I suffer from agoraphobia . I not as bad as though people who are scared of leaving their house, but I get high anxiety in situations I can’t control. That being, its been years since I’ve been in an elevator, I get nervous every time I go into the mall ( I have to know where at least one exit is, Ikea used to be the worse...if you have ever been in one those before) sometimes I even get anxiety when I am a passenger in a car and the driver is someone I don’t know or trust (its that fear that I can’t get them to pull over if I need them too). I went to therapy for it, and was told as long as it doesn’t cripple my life, then I am fine. So, far I’ve been able to take the stairs and drive when I want to travel.
But as I get older, I feel like its holding me back, from experiencing so many things…like my trip. Just sitting here typing and thinking about getting into a plane is making me shake, and that’s so upsetting to me. I am going to start looking to maybe some new therapy or medications , because I want to start living my life. I don’t want to always be the person holding the purses, because I am too scared to take that chance. I do feel blessed, because in the past the relationship I was in I was always felt to be a drama queen, like it was all in my head. There was no support regarding the issue and it was so frustrasting. Now, I have someone who is always there to hold my hand in my time of panic and calm me down...my BF has never made me feel like I am crazy, he just wants me to be safe...and sane...and I am thankful everyday for that.
Well I will keep you guys updated on all of my issues and thanks for reading.

I wish I could express how lucky I am to have this guy in my life. Not only is he my BF, but he is also my BFF. I am so blessed because he goes out of his way to make me laugh and feel special every day. We totally get each other, and have way more ups than downs. I am lucky to say this Hello Kitty has found her Dear Daniel!!
Happy Birthday Baby….I Love you!
