I’ve never been into Diane Von Furstenberg designs however after seeing bits and pieces of her reality show on E! I have become DVF obsessed… with DVF herself, not the products she creates.

What I mean is that Diane has such class, is respected, she is poised, yet she also has her playful side but is always true to herself. In my opinion she is the epitome of a woman. Anyone would be so lucky to know her. #BESTmentor If you haven’t seen the show I might sound like a creep… Oh well that’s normal.

I’ve come to realize that I’m at a point in my life where this quote totally is on point. I could not say it better myself but hopefully one day I will have to and others will be able to quote me 😉

I’m ready for a change, new experiences, and to further my knowledge. This change I crave is strictly business, not personal life just to be clear. I have had a wonderful career thus far but I am ready to dive in head first to a new venture with my new outlook.

Have you ever gone through something like this?

Happy Holidays!!

I took some holiday photos with my nugget and wanted to share them because I’m THAT mom! You can cringe at all of the annoying kid posts people do.. You never think you’ll be THAT mom but you just can’t help being obsessed with your mini 🙂

The fiancé was sleeping in due to a hectic 14 days of work. #rodeoprobs I wasn’t too upset since we will be taking our engagement photos next month.

Happy Sunday aka Vacation for MOI! I decided to take a week off from work due to Thanksgiving and because my Birthday is on the 29th! Why not relax and do nothing 🙂

Tonight we decided to have a girls shindig; dinner and gambling! Yes, I live in Las Vegas.

Dinner was fantastic as always. We decided to come to a local casino called the M Resort located in Henderson. Jayde Fusion is where we stuffed our faces like malnourished humans. We then moved onto gambling and… here I sit in the bar relaxing with Chardonnay, football {Giants and Dallas} and slot machines in the background. I only lost $25.00 however I think it’s SO DUMB. I would rather have spent that money on a bottle of wine. Maybe I’m a sore loser?

Anyhow I got to thinking that so many people come to Las Vegas to gamble! Why? Do they just want to throw away money? I just don’t think it’s that fun so I guess I’m a bore whore. I would just rather spend my money on things I can trade them for… Shoes, bags {Louis Vuitton please} anything at Sephora! I don’t know what do you guys think!???

Dinner… had the best pad thai ❤

 

—-UPDATE—-

After posting this and realizing how boring I was being, I decided to give it another shot. I found a super fun and goofy gorilla machine and i ended up turning $10 into $36, and then $20 into $100…. and of course, i didn’t walk away. I was glued to that damn machine and I left without any of my winnings. UGH! I will be going back to see the gorilla though.. 🙂

How to avoid Holiday BLOAT

 

The Holiday season tends to bring extra weight, bloat, and ew. Here are my tips for trying to maintain and not gain during these cold months when you just want to stuff your face with carmel macciatos and warm cheesy pretzels.

Most of you have heard of the cereal, Special K by Kellogs! It keeps your pants buttoning without making you have a muff top. When I have had a bad weekend or week of eating like Winnie the Pooh {that bear eats every 5 minutes!!} I will have Special K for two meals; typically breakfast and dinner {not past 7pm}. Lunch will be veggies/protein/lil carbs and then you can have fruit and veggies in-between meals. It WORKS ok… if you get hungry the first couple of days while testing this out just remember that if it was easy everyone would be less bloaty. Special K has different flavors but I just like the plain kind.

You can also do the Special K bars but I find that I feel more content if I have the cereal. The bars are tiny but they’re good if you’re out doing errands and need something quick so you don’t starve and end up going through any old drive through. #guilty

MILK, don’t even get me started on milk. I think it’s all disgusting and bad for us but I drink organic almond milk only when I have Special K. There should be minimal ingredients in almond milk; purified water and almonds. If the ingredients lists a bunch of words you can’t pronounce put that shit back. I use Califa brand, unsweetened of course. I remind Starbucks every week that they should be offering almond milk along with their other 4 types of milks. Still no luck.

This non-bloating probably won’t work for everyone and I’m no nutritionist but it’s what works for me and what makes me feel good. Who doesn’t like a flatter stomach?! What are your dieting tricks?

Girl Crush

WELL this post was going to be about the god awful Pixie Cut everyone in tinsel town is sporting… however since I am going out and having a girls night tonight I decided to share with you my ultimate girl crush! Every girl has a girl crush so don’t say, “ew” like you think I’m crazy.

And the winner is……………………

JESSIE JAMES DECKER! Cutest girl ever… best hair, best make-up… best everything. If you don’t know who she is by now, you are probably living under a rock or in bedrock city. Theres a 10000 reasons why I like her and want to be her friend but I will just give you a few for fun! Hopefully this isn’t completely boring you all…. this post is more of a rant or something along those lines??

How can you NOT want to be her

I don’t even need to explain her fun, amazing, personality, just watch one of her videos by clicking HERE!!! My favorite videos are: Hair Tutorial and Girls Night Out- see why I thought this was fitting to share 😉

I love that she’s funny, does her own make up, hair and everything. I don’t know what else to say really, but I just want to be like her, but myself. Is that weird? ALSO, she is an Aries and I LOVE ARIES! My best friend is an Aries and we just get along so well. I’m a Sagittarius if you care. Yes, I’m crazy.

Another thing to discuss is Taylor Swifts music video for – Blank Space! Umm AMAZING. I love that she’s finally letting her crazy side out. Every girl is crazy, you either show it often or keep it hidden until your bubble’s about to burst.

Love your faces, if I can get a good selfie I before going out tonight I will share 🙂

Make-Up Contouring

Am I the ONLY person who finds the contouring tutorials/photos creepy!?

It is amazing what make-up can do for all of us however… seeing the before, during, and after photos just gives me the feeling that everyone is hideous in need of contouring.

Crazy right!

I think this makeup trend definitely helps women look better which is what we all want. The process is what creeps me out… globs of dark and light make up, blending it, and then you just look like a new person. What is your flavor of the month going to think when he wakes up to a flat faced girl, “what happened to those nice pump cheek bones?”

Looking at the photos {pinterest as always} who honestly wants to spend 45 minutes each day doing this!? Not I! You absolutely will HAVE to wash your face every night. You won’t be able to do your lazy make-up remover wipe routine, unless you don’t mind waking up looking like a pizza face.

no words for this one

I don’t know what else to say about it, the photos speak for themselves… before I say anything too mean I guess I will end it here and let you be the judge!
