Happy Friday Readers! Here are a few of my current favorites:

  1. Favorite TV Show: 2 Broke Girls
    This show is hilarious. It’s a bit raunchy and snarky, and usually I don’t go for that kind of humor, but this show does it in a way that doesn’t cross the line (although it definitely walks it). It’s relatable, funny, and definitely one of my favorites. Below is a quick video I found on YouTube of some of the funny moments from the show, just to give you a little taste. You can watch 2 Broke Girls Mondays at 9/8c on CBS. 

  2. Favorite Makeup Product: BADgal Lash Mascara by Benefit Cosmetics
    (Available at Sephora)
  3. Favorite snack: Veggies & Ranch – healthy & delish!
  4. Favorite Quote: 
    “For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
    —  F. Scott Fitzgerald 

  5. Favorite Treat: Ferrero Rocher
    A smooth chocolaty cream surrounding a whole hazelnut; within a delicate crisp wafer…all enveloped in milk chocolate and finely chopped hazelnuts.

I’m Back!

Happy New Year readers!

I apologize for the lack of posts…life got hectic again and a break was necessary. But now I’m back and ready to bring you some fresh inspiration in 2013. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a great start to the new year. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you guys and hearing your feedback. :)

Xoxo,

This Week’s Favorites

This week has been so hectic for me! I feel like I’ve been running on a treadmill that just won’t stop or slow down. But life is just that – one crazy ride. Hopefully you all had a good week. Here are a few of my favorite things from this past week that I thought I’d share with you.

  1. Favorite Fashion Statement: Nude Pumps
  2. Favorite Laugh: The Official Song of the NHL Lockout
    (Parody of Taylor Swift’s We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together)
    My boyfriend is a big hockey fan, and he knows I love, love, love Taylor Swift. So when he saw this hilarious video while reading the Yahoo news highlights, he knew he had to send it to me. It totally cracked me up.
  3. Favorite Quote:
    “I think love is one of those things that it’s only really bad because it was once good. You can’t miss something that was never amazing. So I think what I’ve learned is that even if it ends badly, it’s worth it if it made you feel something – if it taught you something.”
    – Taylor Swift
  4. Favorite Nail Art Idea: French Bow Nails
  5. Favorite Song: Crazy/You Drive Me Crazy – Glee

It’s Friday, But I’m Still Thankful: Opportunities

I’m not rich. My family is by no means wealthy. But we aren’t poor either. I went to public school, I’ve had to work hard, and so has my family. But we’ve also had a lot of opportunities. Some because of luck, some because of fate, and some because we’ve worked our asses off to get them. I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that life has offered me, even if I didn’t realize them at first, or take advantage of them when I should have. I am very blessed to have the life I have today, and to have a shot at the kind of future that I have a shot at. Sometimes, you just need to take a step back, breathe, and look at what life has given you over the years. Sure, things may not have been easy, but within all of the craziness, there were lessons, amazing memories, and great opportunities.

Lack of Updates…

Hey everyone!

I want to apologize for not updating lately. My mind has just been all over the place lately because my boyfriend is leaving to go back to school on Tuesday. (I’m in a long distance relationship) So we’ve been trying to do a million things and spend lots of quality time together before he leaves. I do promise however, that I will be back on Monday with new posts every day like I started out doing. Thank you so much for your patience. So look out for new posts coming next week! :)

Xoxo,
Amberlee

Late Thursday Thanks

This week I would like to talk about how thankful I am for my boyfriend. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life. No boyfriend has ever taken care of me, worried about me, or loved me like he does. He is the sweetest guy who always has nothing but good intentions. While the majority of our relationship is a long distance one, his kind heart and caring personality makes up for it. He’s always there when I need him and I know that I can count on him even from two states away. I am so incredibly lucky to be dating someone as wonderful as Jim.
