4Simple Rules...

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. With everything crazy going on in my life right now, I had a breakthrough. I realized that I need to change a few things about myself. No matter how positive I try to be, I'm honestly not being that positive at all. I need to block all the negativity and just keep moving forward. I need to look at the situation life has thrown at me right now, not as an ending of a horrible chapter, but a beginning of a beautiful strong new story. 

I want to finally discover my true self. Focus on my needs and my wants, let go of the toxicity and poisonous people in my life, and finally get my shit together. Below are 4 simple rules to help you begin to change your life around. 

1. Wake Up Early // I know this seems so minuscule, but it makes a world of a difference. That saying, the early bird gets the worm, could not pertain more to this. The later you stay sleeping in, the more tired your body and brain will actually feel once you do wake up. Waking up early also helps you maintain a healthier diet because you wont skip breakfast and you'll also get more stuff done.

2. Never Go More Than Three Days without Exercise // I hate working out. Absolutely would forgo it if it could. That's one thing I need to change. I need to exercise more and live a healthier lifestyle. Going to the gym or doing any type of exercise 4 to 5 days a week is very crucial for your physical and mental health. Not missing more than three days will keep you on that routine and help you get to your weight loss goal faster!

3. Make Time To Read Everyday // Losing yourself in a great novel or story can be what you need to relieve some stress. It also helps with mental stimulation and memory skills, as well as helps you improve your concentration and focus. Whether it be a romance novel, a self help book, or just an article from todays current events, reading is beneficial in so many ways.

4. Work Harder Than You Think You Did Yesterday // Never stop working to get better. If you tried your hardest yesterday, try harder than that today. Keep working to better yourself, and you will never be dissatisfied. 

What are some other simple life rules that you live by? 

Have an amazing week!


Single Girls Guide To A Perfect Valentines Night

I love Valentines Day. Sadly, this year will be the first year in a while that I don't have my special someone to celebrate and share this love filled day with. I don't want to get to much into detail about the why's and why nots, but if you don't have anyone this year like me, that's ok!  I am not going to let the day go to waist and neither should you. It lands on Tuesday this year, so it's the perfect mid week excuse to treat yourself to a night of being a homebody, and doing some of your favorite things. Below I have compiled a list of some of my favorite stuff to have and things to do that will help you make your night perfect. 

1. Wine. Grab your favorite glass of wine, and go to town. Wine always relaxes me and sets me in a calm chill mood. You can always go to Walmart and choose from an array of inexpensive yet really yummy wines. Some of my favorites are the Arbor mist brand, which comes in many flavors and is very simple yet sweet, or Riunite Lambrusco which is more of a desert red wine.

2. Bubble Bath. Go and pick up some Lush Products. Turn on some soft music, light some candles and throw those lush bombs and bubble bars in a warm hot bath. This will definitely help you de-stress and un-wind. What I also love to include in my bubble baths, is a nice glass of some wine. You cal always forgo the music and turn on Netflix on your ipad or laptop. 

3. Make Homemade Pizza. Pizza definitely always makes me a happy girl. You can always skip making it yourself and go order some from your favorite local pizza joint, but there is just something so satisfying about making it yourself. You can add how ever much cheese or toppings you like. One way to add in some Valentine spirit, is make the pizza mini heart shaped. How cute!

4. Romantic Comedies Marathon. It's the day of love. Go pick out a few of your favorite love stories and get lost in the romance. Fair warning though, this might make you a bit sad, so make sure to have your wine and pizza hearts handy. But, it honestly shouldn't. You get to watch your favorite love stories without being interrupted or dealing with testosterone. Enjoy it. Some of my favorite movies would be any of the classics. Such as Casablanca, Frank Sinatra's Guys and Dolls, or even Jean Kelly's Singing in The Rain. 

5. Comfy Pjs. This is probably the best part of the whole night. Not having to worry about what you're wearing or who is going to see you. Bring out those fluffy socks and silky night dresses and enjoy the freeness. 

6. Snacks. While you're at Walmart grabbing that wine, don't forget the snacks. Lots and lots of Junk food. Your favorite candies, popcorn, your top choice for a large tub of ice cream. Have at it. The best part of staying in on a night like Valentines, is being able to stuff your face with as many sweets as possible. 

Now don't think that this night is only perfect for the single ladies, if you do have a special someone, a night like this would be just as wonderful. You can have a bubble bath, make pizza, watch movies with your loved one. Either way, single or not, this is probably the best way to spend your Valentine's Day on a Tuesday Night. 

I am 25 Years Old, & I still Don't Know What To Do With My Life.

Just a warning, this is by far not a happy post. Skip over this one lol. 

I am currently at a crossroads. I hate when I write my most personal issues, feelings and emotions for the whole world to see, but I honestly just feel like I need to let it out. I will be 26 in less than 3 months. I have no career, no set life goals, my personal relationships aren't at the place I would prefer them to be. I have no money to my name, my credit sucks, and I feel as if I have no purpose.

Damn, I am definitely a catch. NOT. 

I have been trying to stay positive, and look at the bright side of things. For the most part I have been able to do that, but it's just getting harder and harder not to fall in a funk. In the end, my life really isn't all that bad. I am not unhealthy nor is anyone extremely close to me. I have family, friends, and people in my life who truly care about me. I have shelter and I am never hungry. Life should be wonderful right?

Well, nope. 

To me it's not. 

How do I get my shit together and my life started? How do I figure everything out? I am so lost and confused and don't know where to begin. I don't know if I want to go to school or skip it all together. I don't know if I want to be a teacher or go into writing. I don't know If I just want to be a mom and a housewife, or have a career and all that. I just don't know.

When I was younger I had my life planned out. Marry my high school sweetheart by 21. Have kids by 25 and graduate a University by 26. Stupid I know. Life doesn't work that way. Nothing turned out the way I wanted it to, and I don't know if that's ok.

I am so lost with my life right now. I wish I was more motivated to take control and figure out what I want for my future. I have never felt like this before and it's actually a bit depressing. I should have my shit together by now. I shouldn't be my age, and not have a solid relationship, a solid career, or a solid set life. 

how gloomy.

Ok, That's it. I let out all my nasty toxic talk. No more negative, depressing crap. I'm done with it. Time to move forward and get motivated. Wish me luck. 

sorry for the rant. 

February Goals 2017.

F e b r u a r y.  I love this month. Filled with love and so many birthdays, and winter officially comes to Florida. It's usually the coldest month of the year. I also have a lot going on this month. With my blog anniversary coming up, my actual anniversary with Chaz, the super bowl this weekend, Ally's bridal shower, and starting to plan everything out for her Bachelorette cruise, I got my hands full. I haven't really been keeping up with my goals so far, so I really plan on sticking to them this month. 

1. Save Money. I finally have my bills and everything in check. I really want to start saving. I'm going to be twenty-six years old in 3 months. I need to get my money situation in order already. I plan on saving $400 this month. Fingers crossed. 

2. Book my birthday Cruise. As stated before, my birthday is in 3 months. My dream is to be able to swim and hold a Sea Turtle. They have a Sea Turtle farm in the Cayman Islands and I would really like to go visit it for my birthday. I figured going on a cruise and celebrating my birthday for a whole week sounds like a whole lot of fun. 

3. Change my Oil. I have this seriously bad habit that I don't change my oil when I am actually suppose to. It seems like a dumb and not so important goal because it totally is, but I need to change this horrible habit, before my car decides to die on me. 

4. Plan a cheap romantic Valentines Day. Sucks that it lands on a Tuesday this year, but I would really like to enjoy it this time around. Last year we didn't really do anything, and this year I want to figure out some fun romantic inexpensive things to do, like have a pizza date, or go to the drive in. I'll figure it out. 

5. Lose at least 5 pounds. Guy's I'm not even joking when I tell you that I am overweight. My grandma even told me that my ass looks bigger. She was complimenting me. Which is wonderful in my book, but I only gave her a half thank you lol. It's not wonderful when my stomach matches my butt just in the opposite direction. Ok, I might be exaggerating, but I am the heaviest I have ever been and I need to start losing weight before that cruise. So this month. I'm setting my goal at 5 pounds, but I am definitely aiming for more. 

6. Figure out a Giveaway for my One Year blogiversary. I'm keeping this under wraps until I have my plan. My blog anniversary is February 29, but since it's not a leap year I will be celebrating it February 28 <3

Have you figured your goals out for the month?
