Today I am going to dedicate my Post to the veterans and present men and women in uniform!

My pray for the fallen and present soldiers is that they stay strong in their faith, family, and hearts. I hope they know we are supporting them everyday and that they are always on our minds and that we continuously pray for their safe arrival home! Thanks for making this country so awesome!

Praise the Lord: I got my financial aid package for my last semester at ECU! I am beyond relieved. 

I am going to miss this:

but not this:

[filling out these forms and getting into stress when you do not obtain enough is so stressful! I am happy my last semester seems to be panning out so far!!! I am saving 7,000 grand in tuition debt alone  by graduating early! :D

Dreams & Blog Break

Hey Everyone! 

Sorry I took a little blog detour and have not blogged for quite a bit! I hope I didn't lose anyone! I have been trying to find my bubbly-ness (I know it's not a word) for a bit and I have gotten it back thanks to some TLC from my momma and talks with God. 


On to my post: DREAMS:

Funny enough I feel like I have finally found the perfect major for me as I am one semester away from graduation! How trite of me huh? Anyways I was thinking the other day how I could get involved in my community if I could not obtain a second job! I would love to do the Boys & Girls Club but i found out the closest one to me is 50 miles away. 

Then I thought maybe The Humane Society- I am giving them a call today!

 But then I got to thinking REAL broad... I discovered that my love of animals is sooooo big and I truly wish I had the guts and knowledge in the past to become a Veterinarian. I feel like the only obstacle I would have faced would have been all of the labs and math involved but now I feel mature enough and driven in life that I could have done it! I could just picture me with a little office. But if I never got the urge to go to grad school for this I know in my field of Journalism/Broadcasting I could still help out these animals without a voice! This a brilliant  random post! But I hope I inspired you a little to follow your dreams!


I am renaming my blog soon! Be on the look out for the new name!!!! :D

Many women are capable, but you surpass them all! 
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.

Mommy I love you with all my heart! Happy Mother's day! XOXOXO

Where have I been?

I have been definitely not in the mood to blog lately sorry! I purchased a schnoodle puppy for charley to have as a brother and it did not go over well with my parents or my boyfriend. I had to make he hardest choice ever and take him back to the breeder and the. Choice has been haunting me ever since. Anyone who knows me...knows that animals especially dogs always have a soft spot in my heart, when I took that baby back to the breeder it broke my heart, he is 16 weeks old if y'all know anyone who'd want him let me know here are a few picture of him.

I think mentally I have been drained

Recently I have made a decision that was not too wise, therefore I am not going to be blogging for a while I need to get a hold of my decision and life and help get this resolved. Please pray for me as I go through this.

Linking up today for TOP 5 tuesday!

Today I am linking up with Rachel @ Just Peachy Blog


1.Hats! Always wear hats in the summer sun to prevent wrinkles and brassy toned hair!
I love my ECU baseball hats for the pool 

This little beach get up is adorable!

2. Lip balms! To keep those lips moisturized and sun burn free!
Beauty tip: tanned lips may look good by they reduce collagen in your lips causing them to look thin.

These lip balms are perfect!!! Called Color Riche by L'Oreal  I love the nudesy ones!

This little lip balm is tinted and so you can see I only posted tinted ones because I really love a color lip even a tint on a pretty pout!

3. Sun Screen & Tanning oil
This is the best body sun screen ever it is water resistant and anti-aging and smells like heaven!

This is a brand called Alba and it is amazing for facial sun screen, non oily and smells nice! It's meant for sensitive skin! Its a spf 10 because I usually wear a hat so I don't need much!

I only use a dry oil like this one and Banana Boat is my go to body oil company! 15 spf is the best because I am not trying to fry!

4. bikinis: ONLY from Victoria's Secret
I have been working out a lot so I have lost some weight in the boobage area unfortunately but I rather fit into my jeans than a bigger bra! haha! I love these Victoria's Secret push up halter tops they give a nice lift and come in such fun colors!

I own this one as well (different color) but its just so flirty and fun!


I am only posting this drink because I am dedicating it to my summer or deeming it my "SUMMER COCKTAIL" I love this and its so easy to make:
BEHOLD: The Cherry Gin and Tonic 

What are your top 5 SUMMER things! :D

Have a Fabulous day!!!!
