As Long As We Got Love

October 12, 2013 Leave a comment

I kept hearing this song on the radio at work and I could NOT for the life of me remember the lyrics by the time I got home, so I could never look it up and download it.

I spent a half an hour today trying to google it off the five words that I thought I knew… Which turned out to only be half right. HAHAHAHA

But I found it!!! Listen. It’s a song that just makes me feel good and happy.

Cat Treats

Bought these cat treats for Sasha. They’re really expensive for how little you get in each package, but she absolutely loves them. And we make it last her a while and stretch it out. ūüôā

I forgot my lunch at home one day. And my little sister saw that I forgot it, so brings it to me at work, and also packs me a portioned out package of Cheetos (since she knows I try to watch what I eat) and she also packs me one white powdered donut because “it’s okay to indulge in moderation”. She’s so cute. I love her so much.

iPhone 5 On T-Mobile

Alright. I caved in and bought myself an iPhone 5. After selling my iPhone 4S and going to the Samsung Galaxy Note II, I really began to miss the camera on the iPhone. Don’t, get me wrong, I completely love my Note II… The screen cannot be beat and the versatility of the Android platform is the best… But I must admit, I DO like the iPhone now too for its own reasons. I was so anti-iphone before. And now that T-Mobile is carrying the iPhone 5, which is 4G and 4G LTE equipped (they made an iPhone 5 specially designed to work on T-Mobile’s network, so no need to worry about being on slow data), I decided to get one. I still really like the iPhone and I still LOVE my note II so I’ll just keep both for now.

V-Day Nails!

February 12, 2013 Leave a comment

I decided to do my nails for Valentine’s Day. I always try to do them one to two days before the day because I always manage to chip it or I want to take it off by the next day. Hahaha

This is the look I went with for my V-Day look!

Valentine’s Day Wish List

February 9, 2013 Leave a comment

Mint Life Blog reports that:

“According to the National Retail Federation, the average person will spend $130.97 on Valentine‚Äôs Day gifts this year, with men spending significantly more than women, and total holiday spending expected to reach $18.6 billion.”

Now, I know that the notion of Valentine’s Day is about expressing your love for one another, and that it’s not about how much you spend or the gifts you receive OVER the importance of the solid fact that one individual is loved by another and vice versa.

HOWEVER, since V-Day is coming up and maybe you were going to get your special someone something anyway but¬†wondering what to get, I figured I’d post a Valentine’s Day Wish List of various items and ideas for you! ūüôā

Some of the items on this list may seem extravagent, or this list may seem very long, but it’s just a “Wish List”, not a “List-Of-Everything-I-Must-Get-On-Valentine’s-Day”. And I’m pretty sure that the BF doesn’t read my blog, so it’s okay to have a wish list like this. Hahaha :p

ALSO, I can’t stress enough how important the thought is. It’s always the thought that counts. The more thought you put into the gift, the more cherished the gift is. It doesn’t matter how much it costs, or if you bought it or made it…

Okay, so here goes:

Does your lover like to collect anything? Coins? Snow globes? Pins? Hats? Get her/him something to add to their collection.

For me, I’ve started a collection of Hello Kitty dolls that I leave in my car. Everytime I stumble across a new one, I end up buying, winning, or some how [legally] obtaining them. The BF has bought me several of the dolls in my collection and I know I’d love to receive another! This is the Tokidoki for Hello Kitty doll that I absolutely LOVE from Sanrio.

Another idea if you’re¬†sort of sweetly old-fashioned, madly in love with¬†your sweetheart and want to show your committment to them, or if your girl is just a jewelry type of person,¬†a promise ring is something that a lot of women like to receive. And what better a time to give them such a token then on V-Day! Zales has a large assortment of promise rings that could fit a wide array of budgets. Of course you want to pick one that fits your budget as well as your gal, but personally, this one is my FAVORITE so far after reading the customer reviews, ratings,¬†and after¬†looking at the reviewers’ personal pictures of the ring on the site:

Or, is your girl a techie at heart? Is there a specific gadget she’s had her eye on for a while? Something she really wants but would never buy for herself? Does she need a specific gadget? Maybe a digital camera to capture memories for that upcoming trip? Maybe her phone is falling apart or works only every other call? Maybe she needs a laptop to work on the go? Or an iPod to go to the gym with? Whatever it may be, just make sure you put some thought into it.

For me, I’d have two gadgets in mind that fall into the category of “I’d-love-to-have-one-but-I’d-never-buy-it-for-myself“. One is a 13-inch Apple Macbook Pro laptop with retina display, and the other is a Samsung Galaxy Note II cell phone.

Another timeless gift is a gift of flowers. If she likes¬†them, pick out your girl’s favorite colored flower, or her favorite flower in general. If you’re on a budget, Costco, or even Safeway has some nice arrangments or bunches of flowers.

Personally, I love lilies and roses. Or just a giant bushel of roses. I’m talking like 3 dozen roses.¬†And I love pink. And red. Or orange is nice.¬†LOL Well, I guess I just really like flowers, and the bigger the arrangement the better. But boy, can it get costly. I used to work at a florist and BOY! Some arrangments get really expensive!

So, maybe she’s not a flowers person? But is she a food person? What’s her favorite type of food? Her favorite restaurant? Her favorite eating spot? If you’re good at cooking, maybe you can cook her something? If you’re not so good at cooking, cook her something anyway–She’ll probably be flattered that you spent the time doing that.

If you’re not so handy, order something. If she likes to eat clean, order her a fruit arrangment! Those are really popular now. They’re pretty AND healthy! Personally, I’d LOVE to receive¬†one of these. They’re DELICIOUS!¬†Edible Arrangments even delivers!

Is your lady the type that likes to do her nails or get her nails done? You could pick out a few nail polishes for her or get her a certificate to her favorite nail salon for a manicure/pedicure combo!

Some really good quality brands for polishes are OPI or China Glaze. These run about $8.00-$9.00 a piece. If you’re looking for something a little cheaper but still good quality, I love Revlon and Essie. They’ll run you $5.00-$6.00 each. Nicole (by OPI) is pretty good too and can be found at places like Target for about $7.00. There are also other brands that I’ve heard are good too like Butter London. That might be something new to her and might be fun to try out.

If you’re on a smaller budget, Mint Life Blog also has a V-Day idea post that has gifts ranging in price from $1.95 – $15.00! And these are all cute ideas too!

OR, if you’re the creative type, MAKE HER SOMETHING! This is always really impressive because you actually took the time out to pinpoint something she’d like, get the supplies, make the gift, and present it to her. There are a lot of sites on how to make Do-It-Yourself gifts.

If you’re not the crafty type, then maybe you can pick out something that has been handmade by someone else! A website called Etsy is a site specifically for sellers who make handmade goods. You can find ALL KINDS OF HANDMADE GIFTS on there! There’s GOT to be¬†SOMETHING that your significant other would like on there. There’s handmade jewelry, handmade clothing, handmade dolls, handmade baby items, handmade EVERYTHING! They even have lists of compiled items specifically for V-Day that you can look at!

For now, this is all I have time for, but I’ll post more as I think of things. Hope this helps so far!

I LOVE OXI CLEAN.

February 7, 2013 Leave a comment

I have to tell you all, I LOVE OXI CLEAN. This is one of my Grandma’s sweaters. It had a very old coffee stain on the sleeve that wouldn’t come out no matter how many times it was washed. I soaked it in hot water and Oxi Clean for two days and then put it through the wash with a load of laundry, and LOOK! No more stain!

I love this stuff.
