The initial thought of going Vegan was insanely overwhelming. But, I'm at one of those stages where I need a drastic change. And I'm not in the mood for a new hair color, piercing, tattoo or any of that jazz. 
So….after 2 hours stuck in traffic on the 405! I found the change! I'm going Vegan! I know this change will not be a breeze or in any way easy; however, I think it will be a great challenge for me this year. 

I keep a list of things that make me smile, and I was so excited to put going vegan on the list. I will be using my blog as a way to journal different recipes and progress of my Vegan Journey. 

I'm excited! 

Happy Sunday!

Once upon a time, I asked my co-worker how she met her husband. Turns out it was through Plenty of Fish. If you're unfamiliar with it, Plenty of Fish is an online dating website similar to Facebook's set up. You create a profile, upload a few pictures, fill in a few details about your preference and what not, and you can instantly start fishing! After learning about this website I figured why not give it a shot?

With dating, there are two fundamental, aspects chemistry and compatibilityChemistry in my opinion is the best part of dating. It's the way that person makes you feel, and the tingly feeling you get inside when you're with them. It's a feeling, it's intangible. Equally important is compatibility, which is the most important.  Do they want the same things as you in life? Do they have goals? Political views? Religion?? Partier? Cat Lover? Dog Lover??? Do they want kids????? Etc.

In the typical dating dynamic, it’s often hard to find all of these things out in one shot. It typically takes weeks if not months to answer all of these questions, truthfully I might add. For me, online dating takes away much of the guess work. You scroll from page to page, message to message and within minutes you will know if this person is your "type," or not.

However, the other side of online dating is the uncertainty of it all. Is the person behind the screen exactly who he or she says they are? Would Alex be just as whimsical and charming in person?

Overall, I think online dating is a great tool to get people back in the dating game, which brings me to my last point.  Be open to the new experiences.You’ll meet guys who are your type, and who are not your type, online or notIf you do decide to create an online dating profile, the person you're viewing is only giving you a glimpse of who they are so don't take it too seriously. You may get a lover or even a spouse out of it. Either way, you will have a few interesting stories to tell. And, let's be honest, everyone loves a good story.

 Everyone has their own view on what makes a “good” or “successful” year, but I personally measure it with growth. Am I  better person today than what I was yesterday , or in this case am I in a better place this year than the year before?

The word “Growth” is generally identified as something positive, but more often than not we fail to remember that there’s a lot of “growing pains” in between point A to Point B. In 2013 I experienced many "growing pains". A lot of it was due to health issues caused by stress. The other part was not feeling motivated, and becoming comfortable with where I was at.

After attending a motivational Women's conference hosted by Kim Somers Egelsee towards the end of the year, and really analyzing my path, I felt more inspired than ever. I started researching schools, and really focusing on what I wanted to do in 2014 to become a better person. I started with a simple resolution list which contained 4 resolutions....

I saved the best for last by making going back to school as my last resolution.

I'm so excited, nervous, overwhlemed, happy, and grateful.

I was accepted into UCLA Extension's Paralegal Program!! In Febuary I will be a full-time student again, and I'm so overjoyed that new doors have opened so soon.

Cheers, 2014. 



My 2013 Favorites ! (Right to left, Top to Bottom)

1. Morphie Juice Pack Helium - Without a doubt this is my number one because it is my LIFE SAVER. I use my phone to no end for work and personal use. This bad boy comes in handy right when I need him! I go from 0% to 80% in about 2 hours time without being connected to a cord. I snap the case on, and I'm good to go. This will be at the #1 spot for a while :)
2. Second fav, of course, Baby Lips. Pink Punch smells so yummy and is my all time fav! I haven't found one baby lips balm I don't like! They all smell so good and feel so moisturizing.
3. My third favorite is a refreshing, hydrating mist I use all the time. The mist has an herbal and rosewater scent. It's great for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin. So Gentle, and non-irritating.
4. I've used my iphone 5's little heart out this year! Love her so much.
5. Mint Julips is a great scrub for the lips. Perfect for all year long.
6. Mineralize Skinfinish Mac Face Powder has the best natural look to it, I'm not a fan of the powdery look so this does the trick for me. It is dewy, but with the right foundation it's definitely great for any skin type.
7. Pure DKNY-Sweet, timeless and a reliable scent I go back to, time and time again. 
8. Creme d’ Nude is a pink toned fleshy nude that has somewhat of a shine finish. Definitely an every day type of lip color. It's my go to lip color. When in doubt, go nude.
9. Beyonce's album was the cherry on top of the 2013 sundae. Every single song. But if I had to pick: , Xo, Grown Woman, Flawless, and Drunk in love.
