Finally after all the rain, two weeks ago we were able to put in our garden! This is our 3rd year of doing a garden and I couldn't imagine a summer without one, if I could have one all year I would so do it! Just being able to walk out the back door and grab some veggies for a light snack or a side for dinner that night is the best feeling and so rewarding. This year our garden consists of the usual; tomatoes, peppers (green, yellow, red, banana & habanero), onions, lettuce, eggplant and cucumbers. We also have strawberries, but we have yet to find a way to keep those pesky wabbits from eating them all ;) Can't wait til we start to see some veggies growing on the plants, should be in no time at all! Any other green thumbs out there? What's your favorite thing to grow?
So. Anyone who knows me, absolutely knows that I am an over the top Lady Gaga uber-fan. So, naturally when she comes out with something as fab as a make-up line, you know this girl is definitely going to indulge! This latest item I recently got of hers is the eye shadow color pallette, it's totally fab!(thanks to the glam crew at Viva la Bella, check out their Facebook Fan page). This is by far one of my most favorite make up buys of all time, not only because it's from Lady Gaga's Mac Viva Glam collection, but because it's make-up in general! I have bags and bags of make-up, and this item is definitely in my go-to make-up bag at the front of my vanity. If you love Lady Gaga like me or if you are just a general make-up lover overall, this is a must buy!
Wedding season has officially kicked off! Well, it has officially kicked off in my busy summer schedule anway. I LOVE weddings. Something about getting all dressed up and just celebrating love is so magical and so fun! I never get to dress up in a dress and do my hair up, so when I get the opportunity I definitely take it and run with it :) The best part about the wedding that we attended this past weekend was the cake. Not only because I'm a sweets junkie at heart, but this wedding cake looked identical to our wedding cake! 5 tiers of creamy frosting goodness, the only difference was that the ribbon along the bottom of the tiers was black, ours was green. But, still GORGEOUS, non the less. But, what made this particular wedding unique was that it was GREEK. We even got to partake in a tradition greek dance! Very interesting, I don't think we had the foot work down at all, not even for a second, but it was still fun and I'm glad we gave it a try. 1st wedding of the summer was a success and I look forward to many more this summer! Who else is getting married this year? Are you ready to take the plunge??
This morning I got a spray tan for the first time EVER! It's been over a year and a half since I've tanned in a tanning bed and I have no intentions of going back ever again. I've made this decision to live a healthly and fit life and that doesn't stop with my actual health and well-being. Skin cancer is on the rise and I'm seeing way too much of it around me and to others that I care about. So, with that being said I'm taking the alternate route and getting a spray tan for the wedding this weekend. And I gotta say, I think it turned out really good! You may not be able to tell in this pic, but I am darker than I was before. The process was interesting to say the least :) I was so terrified of not turning when I was suppose to and getting sprayed twice on the front and then having an unbalanced tan... I kept thinking, "Oh dear, I'm gonna have a Ross moment from Friends!" LOL... luckily, it all worked out and I did fine! I would so recommend it! I had a coupon, so I only paid $10 for "The Works", but without a coupon it would cost around $37, not too bad, considering your other option of risking your skin to cancer. But, I'm happy with the outcome: Two thumbs up!
So for the past week I've been on the hunt for an new pair of black heels. I love shoes, I have more than enough, some I've only worn once. But, hey, as I always say, if that one pair of shoes pulled off that one outfit then it definitely fullfilled it's duty :) Of course I'm talking about my zebra stripe pumps *love*. Even if I have only worn them once! Luckily, for this pair, I'm sure they'll be worn more than once. They're gorgeous! Love the platform, love the rinestones, the heel itself is to die for, I absolutely love them! I found these beauties at Kohl's. They're Simply Vera by Vera Wang on sale for $29.95, I had a %15 off and $10 Kohl's cash, so yes, these were a steal! Not too shabby. Now if only the rain will hold off for the wedding this weekend ;)
I’m a care-free, fun loving gal at heart and I plan to live my life by these 3 little words. Ya gotta have fun, ya gotta be fit and without a doubt ya gotta be fab! This is where I’ll post random ideas that grab my interest in fitness, health, fashion, pop culture, music, whatever you can think of. If it ignites a flame inside of me, it’ll be here! Enjoy!
