Fall Drizzle


Top: Lords of Liverpool (similar here) / Plaid Shirt: Forever 21 (here) / Bottoms: Forever 21 (similar here) / Shoes: Altar'd State (here) / Saddle Bag: Target (here

I love the feeling I get when it rains.  That sense of home and comfort. How it makes you want to snuggle up in bed all day. Nothing beats a good rainy day.

Perfect Fall Lip Color ALERT

Rebel by MAC

Don't let this lipstick fool you. It looks like a dark purple/berry color in the tube. But it goes on as a fuchsia/raspberry color. It's bold enough without being over powering . Which is why I made it my official color for fall.

With the small change in weather here in Dallas it finally feels like fall. I myself have decided to change with the weather. I'm trying to become a better person inside and out. I like to call this a 'Self-Journey'. Not saying that change is always good, but right now for me it is. I have been dealing with weird friendship issues, weight issues, hair issues, and every other issue you can think of. I feel that by starting over and becoming a better version of myself will make me a much happier girl.

One of the few small changes that I have recently made was deleting my Facebook. Which is a big thing for me since I literally check it 10+ times a day. I just felt that FB was being a negative influence on me. I was tired of seeing everyone's drama, thoughts, crap and bullshit. Also seeing  other people's happiness on FB annoys me. It has become a place where people feel the need to 'show and tell'. Maybe it bugs me more than the average bear since I'm not the person I envision myself as yet. But I'm working towards becoming her. 
I was talking to a close friend the other day. She said getting rid of Facebook has been one of the greatest things she has done in her lifetime. I sure hope so, coming from her I believe it. She is defiantly one to look up too. I've learned a lot from her and her outlook on life. Such as surrounding myself with people who want to make me better.
Change is good so soak it up.

Bravado

"I was frightened of every little thing that I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up and laugh at me"


This song has been on repeat lately. I am a little obsessed. She's perfect.

P I N E A P P L E

Lately I have been living in snapbacks. This is my greatest one yet. Found this gem at LF in West Village. It was such a great score since it was 60% off.

Bahama Mama

Big fan of this contour powder. I've seen this product on Instagram, Pinterest, and other blogs. So I gave in a bought it for myself via Amazon. If you have ever he
ard of it, it is as good as everyone says. I love the color because it isn't orange. It has the perfect amount of shimmer which is close to none. I don't know about you, but I hate when bronzers have too much shimmer. It's my must have contour product.

You can get it directly off The Balm's website HERE and pay $20 or you can get it HERE from Amazon for $15

Damn Ginaaa

So this happened the other day at Starbucks....



Yeah, the guy really wrote "Damn Ginaaa" on my cup and I wasn't mad about it. Talk about #WhiteGirlProblems it was really funny when the girl went to call out my name. She couldn't do it so she made her co-worker call it out. I was a little upset because she could only say "Gina" instead of the whole "Damn Ginaaa".

Sunday Funday

AIDS Arm LifeWalk
Last night I went to the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Dallas. Which helped support my MAC girls raise money towards local people affected by HIV and AIDS. All the money they raised MAC matches it 100%. Had a good time for a great cause. Also got a little crazy. #whatsnew

Monday Noms

pesto pasta with chicken sausage & roasted brussels sprouts




Found this pasta recipe on Pinterest. Made it tonight for dinner. It was beyond amazing. This meal is super easy and quick to make. Try it out. ( FYI I added mushrooms to my pasta)



Oh and make sure you grab some of this for dessert. I literally ate it out of the bottle with my finger. Warning it is highly addictive. #devil
