Goodbye Teen Years

February 6, 2018

Today is my 20th birthday. It's so crazy to think about. I'm a real adult! I'm not a teenager anymore. I live in the US so I still can't legally drink or rent a car but I'm not a teen! It makes it feel more really that I'm a full grown human person. I'm fully responsible for myself and life. It's a little daunting.

The Beautiful Jon Snow

February 1, 2018

I finally got to watch Game of Thrones in January and I have fallen madly in love with Jon Snow. I love him so much it hurts and makes me a bit angry if I'm being honest. Like when you love something so much you want to squeeze it to death or punch a wall.

Monthly Favorites | January 2018

January 31, 2018

January took a long time to pass and went really by fast at the same time. For me at least. It seems like New Years was forever ago but I'm still surprised that January is gone already. I must say though that I am very happy that I spent all of January at home in my own bed. I have been living out of a suitcase and traveling so much. I'm so happy to have spent a whole month at home.

Why "Gluten Free" Menus Are Dangerous

January 26, 2018

Every restaurant and their mothers are offering "Gluten-Free" menus right now. Being Gluten-free is seen as the latest diet craze. Most people have no idea what is now the latest fad really started as a diet restriction for people who are allergic to gluten or are Celiac. We are gluten-free because we have to be. There is no "cheat" day for us.

I have fallen in love with A-Z posts! I recently read all the A-Z posts that Tania has done and loved them! I love Tania's blog and I love all the different ways she's done the A-Z style post. I'm literally the last person to do this. If you google A-Z of Me you'll find so many blog posts. I'm super late to the party... but what's new? I'm always late to these things! So let's get to it, shall we?

I was Diagnosed with Celiac Disease | Going 100% Gluten-Free

January 23, 2018

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in December. Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder which makes my body attack itself in the presence of gluten. So if I eat gluten my body cannot digest it. The antibodies in my body see the gluten the same way they see a virus and attack. My digestive organs get caught in the crossfire and become damaged.

My Love for The Joker

January 21, 2018

I've said before that I have a thing for villains. I don't know what it is about them I just love a well written bad guy. I think J was my first villain love. He's insane, has an amazing sense of style, a beautiful lady on his arm and no regard for anyone but himself and Harley Quinn. He's a villain that most find easy to hate but I find him just that much easier to love!

January 17, 2018

"Each of these slimline, portable palettes has a curated set of six shadows plus two double-sized base shades. They swipe on highly pigmented, beyond blendable color for endless eye looks. Smashbox popped in two the bigger base shades so you won’t run out of basics before you’ve used all the high-impact accent colors. You’ll be obsessed with the velvety, wearable quality of these shadows—not to mention the hot new eye looks they inspire. 

Ablaze (hot, desert-inspired shades): With shades in rich red clay and hot terra cotta, this palette captures the warmth of the desert in a range of sun-drenched shades—these dimensional pigments are perfect for adding depth and contouring."
