1. What are you most looking forward to about Fall?

This cute girl, my cousin Jessica, is getting married in October

I am planning a girls night to see this show in October or November. Can't Wait!

Taylor Swift's new album is coming out in October.

2. What is your favorite sports team?

I am hoping this new player Dante Exum will be good for the team. 

3. If you could go back to college is there one thing you would change?
I don't think  I would change much except for one thing. I would loosen up. I would relax and try and have more fun. Sometimes I would be too stressed to enjoy life. 

4. What was your favorite class you ever took? HS or College
It is a toss up. In High School my favorite class was English Literature.
In college I really enjoyed my Music Civilization. It was a class that combined a little literature, a little music (Mozart, Beethoven, Lizt, Schumann) and art. This class helped me determine my favorite artist Degas.
5. Reach into your purse what is the first thing you grab?
My cell phone.

Weekly Favorites #27


She Loves Me is based on the same play/story as You've Got Mail. The plot revolves around Budapest shop employees Georg Nowack and Amalia Balash who, despite being consistently at odds with each other at work, are unaware that each is the other's secret pen pal met through lonely-hearts ads. It was very cute and surprisingly funny! I highly recommend it. 

I am super excited for Taylor Swift's new album. She is finally embracing the Pop side of her music. I love the video for her new single SHAKE IT OFF.

Love these. I have noticed a lot less heat damage with my hair and a healthy thick texture as well. 

This might be a new album...yay for new music. 
Or maybe a new Christmas album?
In the studio working on something new! It's a secret....but don't worry you'll know soon enough! #studio #Vancouver #michaelbuble #teaser

Sunday Social

1. What is one item you wish you could splurge on right now.
I would say right now, it would be between a new lap top or a new cell phone. I'd consider a Samsung Galaxy 5 but at this moment I would like to get a new Nexus 5.

2. If you had an entire weekend of no plans what would you do?
If I could I would go hang out by the pool all day. I would swim and then enjoy the sunshine and a good book. Or, I would just have a day for me and go to a movie, go shopping, and just have fun. Otherwise known as making plans  ha ha. 

3. What is the next place you are visiting outside of your current city?

I am hoping to visit St. George Utah this month and go to the Tuacahn Outdoor Theater. I would love to go see the Little Mermaid and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. 

4. Are you a neat freak or a clutterbug?
I can be both. My room and my desk at work can get a little cluttered but for the most part I keep things pretty organized. 

5. What is your favorite summer purchase?
I have bought some cute Maxi Skirts I got a Navy skit and a Black and White skirt. 

And of course I have really enjoyed my new car which I wrote about in my last blog post.

Buying a Car

I was really sad to have to say good-bye to Bosley, my PT Cruiser. I have been driving him since 2009. However, I found this beauty and she was quite a steal.
This Nissan Sentra is a 2012 and when I purchased her this week, she only had 14000 miles.  We found this car through a guy my dad knows named Jay.  Jay was advertising the car for $4000 under retail and he knocked almost another $1000 off of the price for me! 

I had almost forgotten how frustrating car shopping can be. It is stressful dealing with salesman at dealerships, even when they are very nice and helpful. I don't like to feel pressured or obligated to do anything after I have simply test driven a car. It is hard finding a car that you really want to drive that is in your price range. You want to find a car with decent mileage, a car that is in good condition, and a car at a fair price. 

I sifted through so many cars that were really cheap but they had been wrecked or they were almost 10 years old with 180,000 miles. I really had to decide if I wanted an older car I could be for up front or if I was willing to borrow some money. In the end, I felt it was worth it to borrow a little bit of money to get a quality car that will hopefully last me a long time. I cannot believe I lucked into this Nissan. I know this is kind of a blase and commonplace but it is exciting for me! Now all I have to do is think of the perfect name.

Weekly Favorites #26

A solid lightweight knit high low tee.
60% cotton, 40% rayon
These shirts  from Rue 21 are super comfortable. They come in black, green, blue, black, coral, and white. They are only $12.99. 

These makeup brushes from E.L.F are available at most convenience stores or the E.L.F website. They are only $1.  They have regular shadow brush, a blending brush, a smudge brush for creating a smokey effect along the lash line, a crease brush, and an angled eye defining brush. In the picture there's the smudge brush which I use to add color to my eye lids. The smudge in the middle is the blending brush. Its also handy to add a lighter base color all the way up to your brow line. Then I have the angled defining brush which I use to apply dark colors along the lash line or on my crease. Check them out. 

The cute statement necklaces are perfect. They add a great splash of color and aren't huge and distracting. They are a perfect size. Believe it or not, they are from Walmart-only $5. 


I got my official season tickets for the Hale Center Theater. 
I got tickets for A Christmas Carol in December and these shows next year.

Favorites of the Past Couple of Weeks #25

I know it has been forever since i have posted but I am turning over a new leaf. So, here goes my list of favorites for the past month or so.

No. 1. This cute lady right here. My sister got a dog and we are all still in shock. Her name is Scout and as you can probably tell she is an Australian Shepherd. . She is so cute and playful and growing so fast. She loves to hunt around in bushes and she loves peanut butter. We're glad she's around!


I think I have found one of my new favorite mascaras. If you are looking for a new one to try give this one a shot!


This week I got to see Wicked in Salt Lake City. My friend was able to come with and I'm so glad because she is moving to Arizona in a couple of weeks. 

I finally got around to seeing this movie. I thought it was uplifting, enjoyable, and, I hate to use this word, but cute! I recommend it.
