School has been so stressful lately. After I finish this semester I'll have just 2 classes to go before I apply for my dental program! Praying I get in!

My baby puppy love, Brooklynn, gets spayed on April 21st. I am so nervous. I don't like my doggies having surgery but I don't want her to have puppies and contribute to the shelter problems.

Money has been a bit of an issue lately. I stress over it so much. And the sad part is that I work my ass off and still can't afford to move out. I'm still paying off my car repairs from the wreck I had in November. I really want my own place with me and Brooklynn and Scout and Morelli. And I would like to get a new car. Not a new new car, but a new to me car. At least a 2009 or 2010 model.

Goals! I have lots of things I am aspiring to. So many things to accomplish!

I am off to eat dinner and study for my Anatomy and Physiology test! Wish me luck!

Salvatore Ferragamo EDT Shine Review

So a while back I was in Ulta lusting these perfumes by Salvatore Ferragamo but I didn't buy one because I was low on cashola. My favorite is the Bliss one which I now intend to go purchase now that I remember it. Haha. I bought this Shine set for 15$ at Marshall's today. It has a 1.7 oz EDT and body lotion in it. They also had just the EDT in this size but it was 19$? Wth Marshalls? Haha. This perfume has the following notes:

*pineapple, passion fruit, bergamot,  grapefruit, pink peony, peach, amber, cedar, and musk

Its a nice scent that isn't sickenengly sweet. Not a mysterious sexy scent, but a fun sexy scent. It also lasts a long time on me. Tomorrow i'll do a test so I can tell you an approximate time. I haven't ever smelled anything like this and I love it!

Would I repurchase? I can never finish perfumes. I've never gone through an entire bottle yet, but I can say that if that happened I'd maybe repurchase.

This perfume retails around $59 for this size so it was quite a steal!

Packaging: *****/5
The bottle design is gorgeous and so artistic looking.

Obvs I got this for a steal so my value is great, but I'm rating this based on retail. Its unique and worth the money.

Performance:TBA after further testing!

Overall: so far a ****.5/5!

Check this out if you're into light clean springy scents! Pass if you prefer darker or super sweet scents.

Revire and Swatch: OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston

This is one of the new Spring 2011 polishes from the OPI Texas collection. Named after a city I live not too far from, GMG is a gorge coral jelly that applies like a dream.

OPI calls it a "sorbet"'s a is really sheer on the first coat but gets significantly more punchy with a second coat. I prefer three coats topped off with Poshé myself.

My fam has a cabin at Bolivar so of course this is the first polish I bought from this collection!

Coral is a hot color for spring and summer so give this polish a try!

I know my skin looks yellow in some of these. Lol. I adjusted the color settings to get the color of the polish to be accurate.

Review and Swatch: Philosophy Lipgloss in Cinnamon Buns

Philosophy is a really great brand. Their packaging is top notch and the quality of their products are great! In Ulta a few weeks back I picked up their lipgloss in cinnamon buns. It smells so good but not too overpowering to me and I can't tell that it has a taste. Its a clear color with lots of yellow gold glitter in it. It has a pretty long ingredient list but I don't see any parabens on here! It is pretty thick n' goopy but its not super duper sticky or anythin. Recommended? Yes! I want to go back and get the other scents and colors too.

Let's Review
Great smell
Nice color
Decent lasting power
All in all a fun little lipgloss.
Stay away if you don't fancy cinammon smells! Durrrr.
Apologies for the awkward self tanner on my arm. Will address that issue later. Hehe.

Its been a long time.'s been a long time since I last put anything here. Not that anyone reads this anyway. But I figured I'd do things I love and hate about myself.

PhotobucketI like that I actually have an ass instead of a nass (no ass)

PhotobucketI have decent length eyelashes

PhotobucketMy skin gets spotty sometimes but it's generally healthy

PhotobucketI like my height, even though I'm short

PhotobucketMy legs have a fairly decent shape even though there are a lot of scars on them

PhotobucketI hate that my face is asymetrical. It makes me so ugly in the face. My lips bother me the most. I hate hate hate them.

PhotobucketMy nose is ugly and large even though I had 2 surgeries done on it

PhotobucketI have a very very small chest

I am very self conscious and I hate my face. I know I'll never be as gorge as my friends. Its quite depressing. I had a rather hard time coming up with the good things. In jr. high I wouldn't even look myself in the mirror. There are days when I feel pretty and then I try to take a photo for facebook or swatching something and I feel terrible after that.

Any tips on how to be less self conscious?
