Peace Out Summer Part 1

0 Permalink 0

As I type this, my phone is telling me its 55 degrees outside. 55 DEGREES. So in typical white-girl fashion I am in leggings and Uggs debating on spending a solid hundred bucks online on fall sweaters. Do I need them? ehhh, probably. Do I need them now? ehhh, probably not. Well maybe. Gotta account for shipping time lol.

Before I get into the joys and sorrows of winter, I need to reminisce on fun things that happened this summmmaaa (in Olaf voice)! I previous shared my amazing birthday gift to myself – BEYONCE CONCERT. But don’t worry, I’m sharing all my pics in this post 😉  The summer was filled with friends, new & old, and alot – I ALOT – of alcohol. That’s the definition of summer right??

With further ado – BEY (PS Pic overload coming your way)

We stayed with my friends Jen & Rachel in Hoboken for the day/night. Freaking love it there!!

That’s not the only thing I did all summer. So here are moments of the rest –

We went rope jumping.

Well I didn’t. I watched from the boat lol

August Favorites!

0 Permalink 0

Cannot believe that August has come and gone! It’s crazy talk. Now it’s going to start snowing before you can even say I LOVE PUMPKIN EVERYTHING. Because that’s what comes out every girls mouth from September 1st onward. Before we starting jumping the gun, lets reminisce on August.

August Favorites

+ Starbucks Teavana Shaken tea Blackberry Lemonade Mojito. This shit is the bomb diggity. Could drink it all day long. It was my go too all of August for treat receipt 😉 Super Duper Pooper refreshing.
+ Lady A. Okay, I was (graciously) given free tickets to their show and let me tell you it was one of the best moments of the summer for me! Pics will soon follow. If you get the chance – GO! They put on an amazing show. PS the place that held the concert had $10 bottles of wine… UM YES.
+Free people shorts – I LOVE free people short. I own 3 pairs and they rock! They are sort of a high rise but not too tight so you have tons of shirt options to go with them. I actually got these specific ones for $15.99 I SWEAR! Lord & Taylor had them on a crazy sale a few weeks back. #summerstaple + Yoga Mat. I recently started doing yoga with my girl Lindsay. Don’t get me wrong, it is relaxing but holy crap I felt like I was in a cross fit class! Planks after planks into downward dog then another plank. I was freaking dying. It is an awesome thing to take up so I highly suggest trying it. I’m suppose to be in class now but I had to get 2 cavities filled and my face was freaking numb till about 10 mins ago.
+ Sephora Liquid Eyeliner. This shit is the real deal. I will not buy any other eyeliner ever again. It is perfection. It was a bit hard to get my hand to not stab me in the eye but with time it got better… buy it!
+ Olay Moisturizer. This is not only my summer go-to but my daily go-to. I don’t believe in $30-$40 moisturizer! It is all the same to me. For now, I’ll stick to my 6 dolla no holla, walmart moisturizer and have skin as soft as a baby’s bottom.
+Express denim. I haven’t tried jeans on in Express in…hmm.. about 10 years! I swear 10 years lol. As many of you probably know, Express had all their jeans on sale for 40 bucks. Cool, sign me up. So I went in there thinking I wouldn’t find anything. I tried on like 8 pairs of jeans and loved almost all of them!!! These zipper hem, skinny jeans were the winners and I still haven’t taken them off.  

August was quite the month. My friend got engaged, I went to 3 concerts, I went cliff jumping, John quit his part time job so now I can bug him allll weekend longggg & I spent way to much money on the stupidest thing…per usual.

Was your August as quick and bad ass too? Fair hole in face

An Emmy’s Review

0 Permalink 0

Let’s be real… every award show is all about the dresses. Do you agree? If you don’t, GO HOME! Just kidding but for real the red carpet is much more entertaining then award show half the time… This years Emmy’s were great! Everyone got the memo and wore salmon!

Emmys red

For starters, Giuliana Rancic is my betch. She is flawless!!

I mean it.

Love her blonde (it’s grown on me). She has such a great personality & freaking amazing bod. We should be friends.


Then there is my MAIN BETCH –

Emmys Kalyee Cuaco

She is amazing!!! She literally can pull off anything. I love this look from head to toe. Super fun and flirty but still fitting and sexy up top. #girlcrush



Emmy Sarah HylandEmmys sarah hyland 2


The bun = perfect

makeup = neutral and flawless

top = perfect length

mid drift = PERFECT AMOUNT


I need this look. I need to wear this whole thing to the next event I go to that allows me to wear a dress. #girlcrush2


Hayden looked ah-maz-ing. Pregnant and all, she looked like a freaking babe. So glad she didn’t wear a sack like all the other prego celebrities.

Emmys hayden


Literally how in God’s name does Julia Roberts still look this bangin??!!

Emmys Julia RobertsLook at those leg!! GOD.

Her dress is absolutely perfect for her. I love the semi high neck with the plunging neck… classy yet sexy.


Kerry Washington. Oliva Pope.

Emmys Kerry WI will admit, I am a bit disappointed in this dress. I loveee the color and the silhouette but the high slit & bedazzled edges just doesn’t do it for me.

Her hair looks freaking hot tho.

I’ll give her a hall pass on this since she just had a baby.



First off, I wish I could bundle Zac Posen up and put him in my purse. Such a cutie!

EMMYS klum-posenThen there is Heidi.


Again, she got the salmon memo so they all kinda blend together in my little head.



Emmys sophia vNope.

Everything looks goddamn amazing on her!! This is perfect in all perspectives.

Go ask a dude & I bet he’ll agree…


Favorite best dressed couple. They look hot (especially you Matthew :) )




Now I will share the dresses that made me want to cry & scream for help

Emmys Big bangI love you (alot) but this is not the renaissance festival.

Emmys Ugly 1WHY?  Your hips have wings & your dress if the color of your skin.

Emmys Ugly 2Self acclamatory…

Emmys ugly 3 sarah s

This looks like a prom dress from Macy’s. & I think she was on some sorta drugs when she was interviewed after her win


I am super pumped my Jim Parson won but found it kinda lame Breaking Bad won everything. Didn’t that show end over a year ago?? Blah.

Let me know what one of your favorite looks was!! :)

Weekend Recap!

0 Permalink 0

I have not nearly spent as much time out in the sun this summer as I would like. AKA I’M PALE. I am not tan. My tan lines are sucky. I haven’t been to a beach. Now I’m sad.

This weekend was one to remember… or not remember if ya know what I mean (white girl wasted). Friends from work had a killer pool party. It was a perfeccccct day for pool party! Not only did they have a pool, they had an octagon shaped pool. HOW COOL. The day /night was filled with margaritas, friends, sparklers, and more margaritas. Needless to say I took advantage of my friend Natalie’s home made margarita goodness. Here are the awesome pics from the party –

What better way to follow up a drunken night? TGI Fridays for sunday dinner!!
PS. 10 dollar all you can eat appetizers… only applies to ONE appetizer. Talk about disappointment

Had such a fun weekend with friends and the BF! Here’s to a great week!

July Favorites!

July Favorites @ PInts of Life dot Com

+ Free People Dress. Obsessed with this maxi! I found it on sale at Lord and Taylor for you wouldn’t believe… $23!! It was on sale and I had 2 coupons to use. The dress was originally $108. Talk about a great freaking deal!

+ Michael Kors Hamilton. I am normally not one for camo but sweet baby Jesus I love this bag! I have a woven camel colored Hamilton from 2 years ago that I am still in love with. It is such a classic bag that you can break out every season. But this camo is perfect for this fall. Goes with the deeper shades of the season but still gives an outfit a punch of style & pattern.

+MacBook Air. Well I finally gave in and bought myself a computer!! Second big girl purchase of the summer. Everyone always brags about the amazingness of MacBook’s and now I COMPLETELY understand why. In love…

+Victoria Secret Nail Polish. Who ever thought VS would have decent nail polish?!? Well, the nail polish I bought at the semi annual sale ROCKS! Obviously I got the hot pink that’s sparkled to the max. It dries so fast and doesn’t bubble or create imprints when you get into bed even though you painted your nails 5 hours ago…

+Staw-Ber-Ritas. I LOVE THESE! For 1, there are a ONE DOLL HAIR at Wegmans and Walmart. And 2, they are the perfect size to fit in you satchel and sneak into the bar… not like I have done it… okay I have… like 10 time! It hasn’t failed me yet!! They are the perfect poor girl, white girl wasted, delicious summer bev.

+BEY. My birthday was July 12th and I fucking spent it with BEYONCE & JAY Z!!! I saw them at Metlife in The Meadowlands and it reassured me that dreams really do come true!! Everyone knows she is Queen but until you actually see her in person (cough like a mile away) you will completely be in awe and want to become a lesbian for her. I swear.


July was a great month! It was filled with good finds and amazing memories! I turned the wonderful age of 23 and can’t wait to see what the rest of 2014 holds!

Weekly Pins!

I am a Pinterest addict. I pin every night before bed which leads to me dreaming of thing I will never have. It seems like every night I have an epiphany and alls I look for are healthy recipes and workout graphics. For some reason it makes me feel good about myself? Like by pinning these things it makes me skinner? I WISH! Either way I’m trying right…


Here a few things I am currently loving on –

Pin Collage 1.jpg


+ For starters Kate Spade is my bitch. She doesn’t make a single hideous thing. And that watch needs to be mine.

+ Those delicious fruit yogurt bars look amazing! (And healthy) They say to use pistachio but this girl is not a fan so I’d probably sub in some almonds.

+ That ring set is to die for. Wedding ring or not it is ah-maz-ing. My wedding ring needs to be not only amazing but stackable. Love the idea of stacking rings for each kid.


Pin Collage 2.jpg


+ I am in loooveee with this dress! I would way rather have a high neck and show some leg then have my boobies out everywhere. Obsessed with the whole look from here hair to her sunglasses to that beautiful bag.

+ Apple slices with toppings. Brilliant idea. Sorta looks like a donut and I am in for anything that looks like a donut. Seems like a great mid morning snack.

+Miley. Many people hate her, but I fucking love her. Yeah, she’s been going a little coo-coo on her insta buttttt she was too busy filming Hannah Montana while the rest of use were making beaded bracelets and putting on nail decor. She’s just playing catch up.


Nothing beats the dream world of Pinterest. Can I tell ya what pisses me off sometimes about Pinterest though… the idiots who re-pin just images and I can’t go to the actual site where the pic came from. MAKES ME SO MAD! I want to (pretend) read the info, recipe, or what have you. Happy hump day.






Hello World!

Intro photo

This is my first post! I’ve been waiting months to actually type this. Well, it has taken me months to actually decide what would go in my first post. I figured I would just introduce myself with a bunch of stupid facts!

My favorite color is pink. Typical, I know.

I love cheese more then anything. Cheese can go on anything and everything!

I am from New York. Not the city. That’s 5 hours away… there is a whole state called New York people.

I graduated from LeMoyne College in 2013! (Woo!)

I just bought my first car as a big girl in the real world – a 2009 Audi! (Now I’m poor)

My boyfriend’s name is John. He’s the smartest & funniest person I know (after myself, of course).

I 100% have a shopping addiction that I’ve currently been getting a decent handle on.

I love to go out to eat. I could, like, everyday.

I’m in love with my dog, Patches. He also goes by Meester.

I am super terrified of Ketchup. I’m not un-American. It’s the most gross substance ever.

I’m addicted to reality TV. Anything Bravo or E!

I’m a huge Yankee fan! Derek Jeter is my future husband…

I was a mascot! It fucking rocked. Pictures will follow sometimes soon.

I loooovee fashion and clothes and anything beautiful.

I tend to workout on occasion. Trying to make that a better habit…lol

EOS eggs are my favorite – all 3 dollars of it.

Pandas are my favorite animal.

Everyone always calls me Al.
