Summer Dayz Drifted Away…

Hello my beautiful followers, I know most of you, if not all, thought that this blog was done because we haven’t posted in 3 months. But its not over yet! Summer has just been kind of busy. I have a job now and I just didn’t really have to much of a life this summer and I didn’t have many Ideas on what to post about! But have no fear the school year is starting, I’m going into beauty school, and my senior year of high school, and I’m going to have so much fun posting about my adventures this school year, and all my favorite products and the tricks I learn in beauty school, so if you stay tuned I know this blog has so much more to offer!

The name on everybody’s lips Is gonna be ROXIE

Megan Just got some new shoes from ROXY, and I don’t know who has seen the movie Chicago but that is what I thought of, which as you can see was the inspiration for this blog post name.

But seriously, if you haven’t seen Chicago yet its a MUST SEE! It has won academy awards and its just over all amazing! My two favorite songs are, “Roxie” and “Cell Block Tango.” The bottom line is if you’re 13 years and older it’s fantastic! 

Megan got her shoes from Shoe Carnival, for $39.00.

These shoes are super comfortable and cute! The sides zip and un-zip so you never have to tie your shoe!

Megan wore the shoes with ripped demin shorts and a loose grey v-neck t-shirt. 102 210 211

When nothing goes right, wear a sweater; April 14th – 21st

Where I live its STILL chilly and rainy… I’m still wearing long sleeves and on some days I can pull of some shorts.

I picked out a knitted plum-colored sweater from American Rage, it’s perfect because its lightweight, simple and will match almost any pair of jeans/shorts.

Not only that but aren’t sweaters just great in general?!!? They’re comfortable, and cute!

DIY Hair Bow

Lately I have had an obsession with bows! So instead of spending 5 – 10$ on hair bows I decided that I could make my own out of supplies I just had lying around my house!


  • Ruler 
  • Fabric scissors
  • hot glue
  • Fabric (I used an old collared Shirt)
  • Clip

random i phone 030








First I cut a large rectangle 12″ by 5 ” Then a small one 5″ by 3″

random i phone 032









Next you fold the ends in so there is no frayed edged, you can either hot glue the ends or iron them. Then take your little rectangle and repeat.

The third step is taking each side and folding it into the middle. and Ironing or hot gluing that, but if you hot glue it use VERY little amounts!






Then, flipping it over so all the folds are facing the counter and not showing you are going to want to bunch it up/pinch the middle like so,random i phone 041

Then take the little rectangle wrap it around the middle and hot glue it in the back! then glue your clip on and you’re ready to go!random i phone 044

Here are some ways to wear your new bow ❤

Nail Tutorial: Glitter Mint

I have a new nail tutorial for all of you!

Items you will need:

  • Nail Polish (From left to right: Beware by Pure Ice, Whiter than Snow by Sinfulcolors, Minted by Revlon, and Stunning by Revlon)
  • Masking Tape


  1. You will need to paint your entire nail with Beware. This way you will have a glittery basecoat.
  2. After your nails have finished drying, tape your fingers in various angles. You will want to cover the area on your nail that you will NOT be painting. 1023. Use Whiter than Snow to paint the nail that is showing, when you take the tape off you should have little white triangles!

4. Again after your nails have finished drying you will tape your fingers again this time you will have to use two little pieces of tape for each finger to create a line going across the white triangle, use Minted.


  5. Once again, wait for your nails to dry then tape your fingers in various angles again. This time we will be creating triangles using Minted! 321

6. Peel the tape off and your nails are almost done! For this last step we will be using Stunning as a over coat! After your nails have dried you are set to show off your ‘stunning’ new nails! 393102

Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Fats?

nutrition carbohydrates fats proteinsBelieve it or not many people don’t know the difference between, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Most people don’t have the luxury of having a personal trainer as a father who can break every detail down about loosing weight. Strangely enough I have a personal trainer as a father, and I’m getting to know quite a lot about weight loss.

The struggle is actually meeting the commitment of being healthy. As you all know, reaching a healthy state is my goal. Which is why I try to share as much knowledge as I can with my readers about reaching a healthy state. Today we’re going to talk about an important factor in weight loss.




It is really important to know the difference between these three,  and know whats good  and whats not.


What are Fats? 

fats-2Fats are nutrients, your body MUST have fats to function.

When people hear the word ‘Fat’, some may think, “Fats are bad. Fats makes me unhealthy.” Which can be true and false. There are many types of fat.

1. Saturated fat: This type of fat is found in meat (mammals), meat products, the skin of poultry, dairy products, and many processed foods such as cakes, biscuits, pastries, as well as coconut oil.  This type of fat isn’t particularly bad eaten in moderation.  If too much is consumed over a long period of time, it may lead to cardiovascular disease, raised cholesterol, stroke and more.

2.Monounsaturated fat: Neither good or bad. (:

Monounsaturated fat can help reduce a person’s risk of heart disease or stroke. I’m not saying it will, but it is possible. This type of fat is also used to replace saturated fat, and trans fat. Foods that contain Monounsaturated fats are, avocados, nuts, olive oil, peanut butter, olives. etc.  These foods all have positive effects on your health. If you count calories or recognize calories like I do, you would quickly realize that most of the things listed above are very high in calories. This doesn’t mean they’re unhealthy, they are full of HEALTHY fats that benefits your body. They are high in calories because every one gram of fat equals nine calories. Things like nuts and avocados are high in calories because they’re FULL of healthy fats!

3.Polyunsaturated fat: Another healthy fat!

Polyunsaturated fat is found in, Oily fish (sardines, mackerel, trout, salmon and herring), safflower oil, grape-seed oil and sunflower oil.

These foods all have something in common, they are all FULL of the Omega-3! Omega-3 is a fatty acid. Fatty acids protect us from heart disease and lowers blood cholesterol levels. Omega-3 can also help reduce symptoms of arthritis, joint problems, and skin disease!

4. Trans fat: The fat you want to say away from.

Staying away from Trans Fat is hard because this fat is in A LOT of delicious foods that most people enjoy every day. It is found in: Fried foods, Doughnuts, Pies, pastries, biscuits, pizza dough, cookies, crackers, margarines, shortenings, and many other baked foods.

Trans fat is not natural, they are synthetically made and not needed to live. We could cut Trans fats completely out of the world and more healthy. Trans fat raises LDL (Bad Cholesterol) and Lowers HDL (Good Cholesterol) -Read more about LDL and HDL- Trans fats are popular because they’re cheap and easy to produce. In addition they make food taste really good and helps food last longer. This is why Twinkies can last YEARS and a tomato a week or so.

Basically to sum all this up, Not ALL fats are bad for you!


What is a Carbohydrate?


Your body uses carbohydrates (carbs) to make glucose (sugar), carbs function as energy. Carbs can be used immediately, or they are stored in your muscles  and liver for another time.

Below is a link that is REALLY good and sums up everything about carbs better than I ever could. I encourage EVERYONE to read it. I can’t express how important it is to know what you’re putting into your body, and what to look for on labels. Read THIS ARTICLE BY DR OZ NOW


What is Protein?

High-Protein-FoodsA protein builds and repairs body tissue.  One protein is made up of 20 amino acids. There are three types of amino acids,

Nonessential:  Your body manufactures these amino acids: Alanine, Asparagine, Aspartic acid, Cysteine, Glutamic acid, Glutamine, Glycine, Proline, Serine, and Tyrosine.

Essential: These amino acids your body cannot manufacture: Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine,  Tryptophan, and Valine.

Semiessential: Cannot be manufactured in the body at a rate that will support growth. Arginine, and Histidine.

When working out/lifting weights, you are tearing up your muscles and tissue. When consistently working out your body becomes sore and depleted. This is temporary.  When your body heals and repairs itself, you become stronger and your muscles grow bigger!  When you tear muscle tissue, your body repairs and builds becoming stronger. This is why you see improvement.

So what does protein do? It builds body tissue and helps repair!! This is why you want to take protein before AND after a workout, whether a protein shake, peanut butter, eggs, meat, or dairy. While working out you’re burning energy.  If you have protein before a workout  your ability and endurance should last a little longer because you’ve taken protein which provides energy.  Taking protein after a workout restores muscle tissue and eases soreness.


How do I incorporate what I’ve learned into my diet/everyday life? 

Here’s how the process of burning fat works.   First, your body burns carbohydrates. Because your body converts carbs into sugar, sugar then becomes what your body burns first. The second you eat, bread, or pasta, it is getting converted into sugar, which your body quickly starts burning. If you eat too many carbs then your body is never going to get around to burning the fats (Which is what you’re mainly trying to get rid of). If you base your diet around carbohydrates you’re not going to lose as much fat as you hoped. Because your body isn’t getting rid of the fat it’s getting rid of all the carbohydrates you’re eating. Therefore the low carb diet was born.  Next, your body burns fats. Yes, you want to reduce the unhealthy fats because there is no physical/healthy benefit, but you do want to eat the healthy fats because like I said before your body NEEDS fats to function. The hardest thing for your body to burn or breakdown is protein. You want to take protein especially when your eating low calories and working out to boost energy and control appetite.

Lets start with fats, you’re definitely going to want to avoid Trans fat, and saturated fat. No, you don’t HAVE to completely avoid them but eat them in moderation. I personally would cut them out for the time being because I’m trying to lose weight, and be a lot more healthy. For carbohydrates, I would stay away from breads, pastas, etc. Those turn into sugar the fastest, and sugar gets stored as fat. As for protein I’m going to take it before and after I workout for more energy!

321Ladies and Gents, beanies are IN IN IN! They can practically be worn with any casual outfit including casual dresses (I think dresses and beanies are way cute). The beanie I’m wearing is from Old Navy I think it was about $7.  I really like it because yellow is one of my favorite colors and white can go with anything, which is nice because I can wear it with a large variety of clothing!
