Retail Therapy: Sugar Skulls

It's no secret: I am cheap. C-H-E-A-P. Point blank period I like deals. I love to spend money, but these days I like to spend money on a ton of things instead of big purchases. My HTC Desire 535 has been on the fritz for months, but I have been putting off getting a new phone. I have been mulling over the idea of purchasing a new phone for a few weeks. I had narrowed it down to 3 phones:

  1. LG Stylo 3 Plus
  2. ZTE ZMax Pro
  3. ZTE Blade ZMax
Ultimately I chose the 3rd phone. I have not purchased it yet, but it is what I will be purchasing, especially since I just bought a super cute phone case for it. I have been spoiling myself with my Amazon Wishlist as of late. I'm not looking forward to not being able to hold it with one hand, I already have tiny kiddo sized hands, so this is going to be interesting. I am looking forward to a bigger screen, especially since I love to watch movies on my phone. I am also looking forward to reading my Kindle App on a bigger screen since I probably won't be getting a Kindle for another couple weeks when Black Friday rolls around.


My fiance and I are taking Holiday pictures this year for Christmas cards! I'm excited. We've been together for 5 years and I have always wanted to take a professional photo shoot with him. The ring was chosen out of 3 choices and I ultimately chose it because the one I really wanted was going to take too long to ship. I am hoping the dress comes before the estimated ship date, because I'm going to be so anxious if the shirt and ring come before it. I still need to get myself some black tights and shoes. He needs some black jeans and nice dress shoes. I wanted to be cheesy and get matching sneakers or boots, we shall see! As you can see we are kinda of obsessed with skulls in my household, well, I am! I'm going crazy over sugar skulls right now, so once I saw the phone case I knew I had to have it! Only $8.49 including shipping. What have you purchased or splurged on lately?

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
