Week in iPhone Photos

 On Campus. Our Campus is so pretty when all the flowers/trees are blooming, I had to snap a photo.
 This is the apartment complex we live in. How pretty!

 Playing around with a new app, free app to collage your photos, called Frametastic

 Had better lighting so I took another photo of the Cupcake Wreath I made, which you can find here.

Watermelon Candle I picked up from Wal-Mart, and it was only $4.97, smells DELICIOUS!

It even fits in the Bath & Body Works candle holder.

LOVE Jello, such a guiltless snack. :)

Have a great weekend everyone! My internet was down for a few hours, well our whole apartment complex was, so I was lost for like 5 hours, all I did was clean, and watch TV, snuck in a workout, and now I'm sitting my butt on the computer for a bit. :) Has this happened to anyone else?!?! What do you do without internet? AH!

Cupcake Molds & Pinterest

Just thought I'd post some things I've found on Pinterest lately. 

I'm even considering making one day a week a Pinterest day. :P What do you guys think?

First off I have to tell you I found something really exciting through a blog today and I can't even contain my excitement for it! You know my failed attempt at Cupcake Cake Pops? Here. 
It's so hard to actually shape the cupcake cake pop into an actual cupcake, and by the time you go to dip them they'll actually a real mess. Well, I don't know what it was, maybe fate, but I stumbled upon these little beauties:

Can you believe that the mold is only $5.95?! You can find these here.
She also sells different molds, which include, hearts & round balls.

Anyway, here's some things I've pinned on Pinterest.
Graduation Cupcakes.

Sheep Cupcakes, which I'll be attempting for Easter.

DIY Curtains, I have these EXACT same curtains in my room, might be sprucing them up a bit. :)

Dyed Easter Eggs. Yummy.

Easter Bunny Butt Cake. Adorable!

I do not take credit for any of these photos. If you want to see the link to these images please go to my Pinterest account. You can find this on the right of my page by clicking the little "P" icon. :)

As always,

Hair Fixed

Refer to my previous post here to understand this post.. haha. 

Yesterday I picked up hair dye, again, and dyed it again last night. This is my 2nd try trying to cover up the orange brassiness. And thankfully I was successful, but my hair is still damaged. I'll have to wait a month before I decide to bleach it again. So upsetting. 

Anyway, here's a before photo of the roots of my hair. 

The results. 

It's so much darker than I want it, but unfortunately I don't have a choice. :( I'm just so fair that with dark hair it makes me look even paler than I already am. Boo. 

Dilemma solved for now. 

Thanks for reading!

Creamsicle Cake Recipe & Lasagna

In a previous post I mentioned how I made Creamsicle cake for my fiance's birthday and a lot of you asked for the recipe. I'm so sorry I'm finally getting to it, I figured since I made the Lasagna I would do a two for one deal. haha. 

You can see the post here.
I realize this isn't the best photo of the cake, but I didn't think anyone would be interested in it. If you make it, take a better photo for me and post a link! :)

What you'll need:
  • Orange Cake Mix (or Vanilla, I use Vanilla)
  • Small box of orange jello
  • Cool Whip 
  • Jello Brand instant pudding
  • 1/2 cup of confectioner sugar
  • 1 cup of cold milk

  1. Bake the cake per instructions on the box
  2. While it's baking make the jello
  3. Put holes on top of the cake ( I just use a fork for it, or you can use a toothpick)
  4. This is when you pour the jello on top of the cake, you may not use all of the jello.
  5. Allow the cake to cool.
  6. Start to make the instant pudding, add the confectioners sugar(1/2 cup), milk(1 cup) and the Cool whip. It'll be very liquidy(is this a word?) Put in refrigerator for an hour or more to harden the topping. (I forget the timing of it)

I hope you enjoy this, it's one of my Grandma's recipes!!

I also made the Lasagna on Sunday and it turned out absolutely delicious! My Fiance loves it. I actually found the recipe on and I'll share it with you, you can find the recipe here.
The only thing I did was added more meat (a lot of the reviews suggest this).
I didn't use any onion. (Fiance hates onions) and instead of Italian Seasoning(I was all out) I added Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Oregano Powder in place of it. My Fiance LOVED how the sauce tasted.

SO Upset & Mad

Yesterday I decided to highlight my hair like I was telling you about in a previous post.
I decided to try something new this time, Loreal's Feria highlighting kit.

Let me give you some background first. 
I went to Cosmetology school and I know how to highlight my hair, I've been doing it for the past 5+ years, foils and all, I even cut my hair. Don't get me wrong, I do go get my hair done, once in a while, I just like to do it on my own because I like how I do it, plain and simple. So when I used this product it wasn't like I didn't know what I was doing. 

I almost cried when I came out of the shower. BRASSY ORANGE. Not only that it was suppose to be highlights, bleach spreads hence why you can't bleach your hair all the way to the root, and I know this, but what happened to my hair was something else. I have no clue, it spread everywhere, making it harder to cover up. The worst thing in the world! My poor fiance went out to pick me up hair dye because I was mortified, I couldn't go out in public like that!
So I dyed my hair, hoping to get rid of the brassiness and orange color, at least to salvage it, unfortunately it didn't do anything! I've never experienced anything like this in my life.

Right there I wanted to cry. I wanted to dye my hair again yesterday to a much darker color, but I need to give my hair a break. 

I'm so mad because over the winter, every winter, I don't highlight my hair, bleach is just awful for your hair, I let it relax and I let it mend itself. Now here I am, with bleached hair that just needs to be covered up because of a horrible product. Now my hair is damaged and it's not even highlighted. I'm so disgusted and I suggest no one to ever use this product. It's my own fault for not reading reviews, but I've worked with bleach before, so I didn't think it would be a big deal. Never, ever again will I use any Loreal hair products.

I just took a photo of my hair, this is after it was colored once, and it still looks this awful. Now I have to wait a few days to color it again. I'm probably not going to highlight again because it's just too damaging, see why I'm pissed? I could of have pretty highlighted hair for the spring, but because the product was just so awful now I'm stuck with nothing. I just can't highlight it again, it'll just do more damage to my hair. So disgusted...

Anyway, here's a photo of my roots where the bleach spread through the entire top of my head, mind you this is HIGHLIGHTED.

So upset. Maybe this is why it was reduced, because it was a bad product or expired?!

NOTD China Glaze Paper Chasing

I'm totally late for St. Patricks Day with my green nails, but I don't care. :P 
Actually I'm not a huge fan of Patty's day, never have been, probably never will, I was thinking more along the lines of Spring and flowers. lol. 

Added some little green rhinestones just for fun. :)

I'm highlighting my hair today! I have the bleach in as we speak, I'm using that Feria highlighting kit I got a while ago, it's suppose to be caramel blond, and I'm only doing a few thin highlights to lighten up my hair a little bit. 

Also, I'm making Lasagne for the first time today, wish me luck!! 

I'll let you know how everything turns out. 

Thanks for reading!

Week in iPhone Photos

I really do need to come up with a more clever title for these posts. haha.
I have been so busy this week. And this upcoming week isn't any better. 
I hardly took any photos, the photos I did take with my phone are from the past two days. 
You'd think coming back from Spring Break you'd have a little break, nope, continue on with all the damn homework, assignments, and of course exams. Can't take it!

Anyway, here are some photos. :) 

I love these flip flops because their so soft!!!

My bright blue nails.. hehe, I really need to repaint them, they've been like that for a while!

Do anyone else do this? I print out a grocery list and take it with me, it helps me remember things I normally would forget. My fiance and I had a big order, we haven't been grocery shopping in a month, our fridge was bare!


Seen the Hunger Games yesterday and snuck in some goodies, yup, we're cheap like that! :)
Oh, and Hunger Games was AMAZING, almost exactly like the book. Hope they come out with the other two. 

Have a great weekend everyone. I have lots of homework to do, and of course, I have two exams Monday and Tuesday. :(

Thanks for reading!!

Week in iPhone Photos

Another Saturday full of random photos of the week. 

I love this. 

I hope you guys do too!

Bought these adorable yoga shorts from.... Wal-Mart!! $5.00!!

Took advantage of the weather and sported my University tee, rolled up my jeans, and wore FLIP FLOPS!

 The river by where we live.

RIP Sony, comparison of the two, I guess. lol

I finally received the screen protector for my camera, so I'm now using my new camera(as mentioned in a previous post.)

I forget what magazine website I printed this from, but it's definitely helpful.

So I found this in my closet when I was going through some things. How about this is suppose to be a game, you toss it around like it's a hot potato and when it stops singing that person loses. 

Hemi, my pillow pet that I sleep with every night, he was looking at me when I was making the bed, so I had to snap a photo. :)

We came home for the weekend and since it's so nice out, I decided to clean my car, these are the stuffed animals I always ride around with. My dad gave me one and the rest my fiance won for me. :)

I seen one of my best friends this weekend and she gave me these chocolate filled eggs! Love her!

Cupcake socks!

My fiance made this out of our straw paper. Funny. 

Well that's all I have for you guys today. I did some shopping over the weekend so I'll share on Monday. 
I hope everyone has a great weekend. 
Don't forget to Like my Facebook page! I'll love you forever! <3
