Worst Blogger Ever!

Hey guys...

I know, I know, I know.
I have been so caught up in enjoying my apartment and getting last minute touches together. I moved in last saturday August 20th and everything went very smoothly. My parents, my sister and my niece helped me move in and they stayed the night and left sunday. I appreciated their help so much and them being there for me.

Once I have set up my FIRST apartment exactly how I wanted I’ll take pictures. I will probably do a before and after. What I started with and how everything ended up.

Because I have been doing a lot of unexpected running around, like “Oh I need a vacuum” I just run out and get it. I dont think about what I am putting on and I dont get all glammed up. So why take pictures that wont inspire my readers to recreate what I am wearing with their own twist to it. Starting monday things will change. School starts then and I will be on my p’s and q’s with my outfits lol.

P.S. I hope everyone on the east coast is okay with Hurricane Irene coming our way. 
I live in Delaware so I understand the seriousness of everything

Ri Ri back to brown

On Tumblr everyone has been reblogging Ri Ri’s new brown hair. A lot are saying she went back to brown because her Loud Tour is over and she wanted to go back to something more casual. I love every hair color and style she wears. Which style do you favor?

Tell me which style you favor.

I Apologize

Please please please dont be upset with me about my lack of posting. I have been so caught up in getting everything together with my apartment. I move in on August 20 and thats not this saturday but next saturday and there is so much to do but then again there isnt. I dont know. So far the only room fully completed is my bed room with the exclusion of a bigger bed and my guess bathroom is complete, the dinning room is done. I still need a few key pieces for my kitchen. My bathroom has NOTHING and so does my living room.

I never realized how much house hold items cost. I looked into getting a bigger bed with a new head board and that can run up into the thousands. Same things with sections and sofas.

My mom thinks that I should wait on getting expensive living room furniture since this is my first time interior decorating aside from my bedroom at home or my dorm at school which is only maybe a 12 by 12 room, nothing major.

So since I have been forgetting to take pictures of my outfits, here are some pass ones that got great reviews

Extreme Couponing

Imagine walking in to a grocery store to buy some household items and walking out with 4 full carts and only spending $50, maybe a little less.

On TLC (I think...) they have an eye opener show called Extreme Couponing. The show films a variety of people cutting coupons to save money. I know it sounds boring but it is very exciting. A majority of the people of the show started extreme couponing because of the recession. Husbands and Wifes loosing their jobs and worrying about how to make ends meet.

Normally when you think of couponing, you think of cutting a couple coupons out some magazines and heading to the store...

Extreme couponing entails thousands of magazine clipping and even more online coupons. Some of the people on the show go “dumpster diving” for coupons or go door to door to collect newspapers from their neighbors. Then maybe 7 to 10 hours A DAY cutting and filing the coupons.

Everyone has a different but same method. Keep the coupons organized according to brand, categorized, expiration date and then in alphabetical order.

Some of the people on the show rack up a total of over 1,000 dollars in house hold items and only spend 60 dollars. I have seen a show where a lady paid 1 dollar for groceries that would normally be over 600 dollars.

This show really got me thinking about how much money we waist on household items. These items have coupons we just have to have time to search the internet or look in our local paper.

Then sunday’s paper showed up on my doorstep I decide I would try it for myself. So I started cutting coupons. I cut all day yesterday and a little today and this weekend my mother and I will go to out local walmart and see how much savings we can rack up.

I will be sure to photography the carts full of stuff, the receipt and other pictures. I am really excited to see how far my money goes. With getting my first apartment I need to save money where I can to have it  to use towards other things.

Now on to the OOTD.
(This is actually my outfit from sunday, I just didnt have time to post the pictures)

The beginning of my hair journey

Until next time

Jordin Sparks Weight Loss

Jordin Sparks first stepped on the scene after winning American Idol at age 17. With in the past 2 months, she has been in a lot stories because of her weight loss and her new found love Lil Romeo.
This is Jordin Sparks in May of 2007 when she audition on American Idol
A fuller Jordin Sparks

Here is a picture of her that she posted on Twitter. May 2, 2011
She has lost over 30 pounds. Jordin told U.S. Magazine tht
"Something just clicked with me, and instead of sitting around talking about it I said, 'I'm going to go hike that mountain!' And it continued.  I've been hiking and I've done a couple of runs," she told Us Weekly last month. "I also do Zumba. It's so much fun!"
I am extremely happy for her. A lot of people are saying that she is now to skinny. I think she is a healthy weight and if its something she wanted to do and she isnt starving herself and going about 
weight loss the right way, whats the problem?

Jordin was 17 when she audition for American Idol and wore a size 14. Now she is 21 and wears a size 8.
Congrats Jordin. I wish I had the discipline to whip myself into shape.
