Glowing Skin!

Image
Dear blog, have you ever made a New Year's Resolution? OR perhaps you made a whole list of resolutions like me? And on that list, did you ever include lose weight or be healthier? Well, I have. Sometimes I start the year really well and half way through January I forget about that list.

Now that I have given birth to my second child, I have a learned I won't be able to have anymore children. Since I won't ever go through pregnancy again, I want to take back my body. Not only do I want to have glowing skin, I want to be able to keep up with my children. Lately I have been noticing that my skin hasn't been looking too good and I'm ready to take action. I've been researching foods I can eat to help me achieve the skin I want and the lifestyle I want to live.

Since the school year is right around the corner, I need to have healthy snacks in my classroom, so I can eat when I get hungry. Instead of all the other snacks that will not be kind to my skin.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Image
Dear blog, its that time of the year; NordstromAnniversary Sale! I have found some goodies I would like to purchase.




Let's start with this striped poncho, this is a great piece for fall. It would look great with some black riding boots. 


I like this striped long sleeve tee because it's long. I don't like how short most tee's are, I prefer the longer style. Also, this color is perfect for fall that is around the corner. I don't own many nice pieces for the fall. I think that's why I'm leaning more towards those pieces.
Kate Spade has so many cute accessories! I never know what to pick. For example, her watches have the cutest design in them. I've been wanting to splurge for one of her watches and this one is at a great price. This is the holland bracelet watch. 

Oh my gosh look at these earrings. They are stunning and at a very reasonable price. I was telling my husband that these earring have inspired my Christmas and New Year's outfit. These mini sq…

Sunglasses or Eyeglasses

Image
Dear blog, do you know the feeling of wanting to wear sunglasses but you can't because you have to wear eyeglasses? Well you don't have to worry about it anymore. The brand Warby Parker has taken care of that for us. You can buy prescription sunglasses. This is just what my husband needs. He is always telling me how he wants sunglasses but he can't wear them because he needs to have his glasses to see; he can't wear contacts very often or long because they hurt his eyes. The only other option is lasik eye surgery, which is out of our price range. This company offers sunglasses and eye wear for both men and women, There are some perks to using this company, you have the opportunity to chose 5 frames to try out at home. They will ship them to you for free and you get to test them out for 5 days. After the 5 days the glasses need to be sent back and you are not obligated to purchase them. Also, when you purchase a pair, another pair is given to someone in need. Warby Park…

Date Night

Image
Dear blog, my husband and I decided to celebrate out 7th year anniversary a few days early. We could either celebrate early, or nt celebrate at all because our daughter is coming home from the hospital this weekend. So we took advantage of a free night. We went to Olive Garden because my bother and sister-in-law gave me a gift card to that restaurant for my birthday. I mean, we probably would have gone there regardless, it's one of our favorite restaurants.

We had a wonderful night, it was weird just being the two of us. We usually go out with our son. It was nice to be the two of us though. We got to talk and not worry about our son trying to stand up on his high chair or spilling water on him self lol.



 We started off with Pasta e Fagioli

I ordered the Five Cheese Ziti al Forno. One of my favorite dishes, I love cheese lol. 

My husband ordered Tuscan Sirloin and oh my gosh it was delicious. If you go to Olive Garden you need to try this plate. 

We don't usually order dessert…

Dodge Charger

Image
Dear blog, I'm not that into cars. Its not something I enjoy to shop for or even search online for; my husband does all that. I tell him what I'm looking for in a car and he does his thing to find the perfect car for us. Just last year, my husband bought us a 2015 DodgeCharger. I had to buy a car since I started working :(. I wanted to stay at home, but it just wasn't possible.

To be honest a Charger is not the car of my dreams. I've always wanted to drive a BMW. I remember when I turned 15, at my quinceanera, the master of ceremonies was stating facts about me: for example, what I aspire to be when I grew up, my favorite type of food, the car I wanted to drive, etc. I wanted a white BMW with a sun roof lol. To this day that is my dream car.

Now, I'm not trashing my current car, I actually really like my car. My Charger is white, just like the BMW I always wanted. I love how the Charger drives, I've never even been inside a BMW let alone driven one. I hope it d…

MakeSpace is a new service that comes to your place, picks up your stuff, and stores it. Through the use of their app, you can tell them to bring you whatever you need out of storage.
