Your Sweet Baby Rag Doll

I can't believe this month is over. Its gone. Its really pretty much done. Ugh, I dread August. So much is going on in my life, but in a good way. I can't act like Im one of those women who do not like change. I love it and embrace it. Since being preggo me and the hubbers have been trying to push our bags over to the East coast. We will see. Nothing is set in stone. And I hate talking about it because I do not want to jinx it. But the bigger picture is there also might be a chance we stay in California. Does that bother me? Not too much. I lived here for awhile and it has became my new home. Maryland is my old home. But its somewhere comfortable. Yet, I don't know because California is comfy for me as well. We shall see where the road takes us. I already think its set in stone, we just have to wait and see which one it is.
I remember when I first moved in my apartment, a guy from COX Cable came in to set up our box and told us something I would never forget.
He said "Once you get here, you never leave".
Sounds spooky right? Well, we will see. Thats the adventures of life.

On a fashion note, here is my Outfit Of The Day:
I kinda wanted to rock a raggedy anne look. Its pretty sunny (like always) why not be tropical and colorful with red lips?
This vest use to be kinda big until I found it again, and it fits great when I button it up now..
I was trying to do my hair differently and I failed....
I wanted to have a new style but it kept falling and looking strange...
I suck with hair :(
Whole Outfit:
All from Torrid except necklace and bag
Bag and Necklace: F21

Oh Gosh and this weekend. Greg and I have to somehow organize the room. Oh man! Its needs such a redo makeover. We are gonna have to do it one of those days. I think he gets off early on friday. So much to do. I don't want it to be August yet. Its crunch time. Ekk! Guess its all about being an adult.

This week we went to this awesome restaurant. I kind of forgot the name. But it was an italian place called Baja or Buca? Im not sure. They serve HUGE bowls of pasta. It was crazy. I myself got an individual size, but Greg tried to roll with the big dogs. They came out with at least 3 bowls of pasta for him.
I must have laughed all night....
Imagine 3 bowls of Ziti....

Me starring at Greg.
Greg starring at me.

Rose's Shoe Challenge:
Oh yes, the challenge is still on. Rose is having some complications with her phone so I didn't get to get her other shoe looks this week. Figures right? But I got these babies right here. I love them.
Check them out:
And there flats! Which I love! I would rock these myself!
Steve Madden from DSW
she got them one sale for 70% off...!

Have you guess seen or heard about the new Kardashian Nail Polishes?

The collection looks cute. I hear the names are all related to the family (of course).
I heard Khloe's Polish is called "Khloe had a little Lam Lam" referring to her husband Lamar. I have to admit, thats cute. I like the colors a lot, I hate to say...
I feel like such a hater...tee hee!

Rose said something very true, in my Celeb Candy you will always see Kelly O, Rihanna, and Solange. And by-gone-it, she is right! Ha ha! Solange is the shit to me. Sometimes yes, she looks a little frumpy. But when girlfriend gets it right, she gets it right! She looks amazing in this picture!!! Ughh! I love her style so much and her braids! I love her hair up like that...I can't get my hair right ever...but I wish someone could style it like this!

Video Model?
I have no clue who she is, but she is in a lot of rap videos. Sorry to label her.
Anyway, her outfit is amazing! The blue lippy stick? Egh. Im not there yet. I love the dress so much...ekk!

Mila Kunis
She looks great. That white die for..
and check the shoes...I wish...

Im guessing these are photos from Cosmo, man she is pretty! I adore her so much.
I love that hair....

Kate Moss
This outfit is a killer. If I could get a pencil skirt like that I tell you...

Halle Berry
Halle looks good at her age. I love the way she rocks her dresses. Her daughter is so cute as well. Love the bag as well.

Ashlee Simpson
I love Ashlee Simpson. I really do. She sparks up the photo so much. I love her hair, her face, her style. I love her look so much. I love this romper. Animal print is the shit! And the shoes....
I died.

Kelly Rowland
She is doing hard...
This picture she is going to see Kelly Rowland for her album release party...she looks pretty as always, but Kelly's fashion game is getting hardcore...

Vanessa Hudson
I was so tired of the teeny bopper look! She looks so adult and womanly now. She needs to stick to this look, and I LOVE the hair!

Coming to a close...
I can't wait till next week! The Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes is coming out! Ekk! Im so excited! Yay! I know its gonna be good!
Whoop Whoop!
Alright, about to head out! Mwah Peeps!
Can't wait to read the new book today as well!
Love yall!

Walking It Out On A Rope: Awards & Books

Hello My Peeps!
I can't believe July is almost over. Im kind of dreading it because I always fall in love with this month. A lot has been going on for me. And its all been great so far. Summer school is coming to an end and I want to take some time today to do my hair. I was looking on Tumblr at this girl with dreads and man it made me wanna die my hair so bad. I love her look. I was thinking of also getting my nose re-pierced. I miss it. I always wanted the hoop, but was told you can't start with a hoop in your nose. But then I noticed the tattoo place up the street does do it. I think I will. Get my nose rammed again. I think it will look good with my hair as well.
Sorry Im rambling....

So I walk now. Im not trying to lose weight. I know it seems strange me saying I am not a fan of the whole weight lost thing yet I walk and eat right. It sounds so contradicting. Even to myself. But I realized why I do work out now. Im getting kinda, older. I mean, I do wanna look like those 56 year olds who look like they are in their 20's. I can't lie. I wanna be fly when Im older. I also want to breathe in nature and be at one with it. Walk the woods or a path, or like Im doing now...walk the beach. And clear my head and think. Im not on a diet really, I do eat more healthier but at the same time if Im out a restaurant I eat what I want. But lately I have been so into salads lately. Lucky for the baby I guess Im not grubbing on my normal steaks and bake potatoes all the time. I just want a bit of a change. But not a diet. I HATE diets..And I love my body now, even in the state it is in.

But there is something amazing about walking, I feel like I just had a long conversation with life. I feel like I just vented out my thoughts and issues without saying..anything...
Whatever works right?

So I wake up early, drive down the street to the ocean, about 3 minutes away. I park and start walking.

I pass this every time I walk, thanks for the memo.
