Our new Omega juicer

Hello there! So I recently bought a Omega juicer last weekend, and have been having a lot of fun with it! I have been eating more vegan the last three weeks and was inspired by some YouTube videos I was watching about the benefits of raw food. So I thought I would give it a try!

This was for one juice.. I found this recipe on the blog This rawsome life. She juices a lot, and eats mostly raw. It's a great blog you should check it out sometime! I have to say though, it takes A LOT of fruits and veggies to juice, so be prepared to stock up on stuff if you are going to be doing it a lot. I have really enjoyed though how some fruits and veggies I do not normally eat I can throw in the juicer and still get the benefits! Here is a juice that I have been loving!

4-5 oranges
handful spinach
half a handful or so of basil

So good and refreshing! I have also been loving it with cantalope too. Have you been juicing too? Any good recipes you have been throwing together?

Life via the camera roll

What a weekend! I hope you had a nice relaxing time! The weather has been beautiful here and we had a nice quiet time over the weekend. Kids took off over to grandmas and stayed a night. That was a nice break for us. Jer has the next couple of weeks off from work so I am hoping to get some things done around here. I also got in another car accident over the weekend! Lady ran a stop sign.. can you believe it? Who gets in two car accidents in two weeks?? It's like I have a sign on the back of my car that says please hit me.. lol.  Here are some pics from our weekend!

             Have a great week!

Black and white makes everything alright..

The weather decided to be winnndyyyyy again, so we decided to take this party inside ;) I thought my little man did a pretty good job! He is getting expensive though, haha.
 This is our favorite little corner in our living room , so I thought well let's try it out!
I also started juicing ALOT since this last weekend. It's my new adventure in trying to be healthy and get some energy up in here! I have been having fun finding recipes on other blogs and watching You Tube videos .  I'm the crazy juicin mama! I will share soon with you the juicer I have and some recipes I have been trying! Have you got any good ones?

Butter London Slapper

I just love this pic! Is it the jewelery or the nail color, both? Lol So I attempted to go and find a color like this and try it out..but I am not much of a blue nailed kinda girl, I really don't like it at all. But when I saw this pic from Pinterest, I became in love with her nails! Ohh lala!

So I took off over to Ulta's to pick out my favorite color close as I could get to this one. I love Butter London colors, so I picked up Slapper to try out. It's actually got a lot more green in it. I could not seem to get the color to show up true in the sorry attempt haha of pictures that I tried to get.  Her pictures of her nails are always just gorgeous so I will try again!  Maybe I will just order that color she has on from ..France I think? Lol .
Also!! I was so excited to see that Mavala is at Ultas now! Mavala in my opinion is the best polishes for natural nails! I love the top coat Colorfix, Nailactin is great for cuticle health and healthy nails and Barrier Base is wonderful as a base coat to condition and extend the life of your polish. If you use all of these on a regular basis the condition of your nails will greatly improve and start growing out healthy strong and flexible! I can get my polish to last around 5 days when I take care of them and use my Colorfix through out the week every couple of days.
Have you found any great colors for spring ?

Our new Fab Habitat outdoor rug

Hello! I think I was thinking I need lots of color this year outside on our little patio! Lol. I was a couple weeks back looking at another blog and she mentioned Fab Habitat outdoor recycled rugs. So I thought I would check them out and to my surprise they were not expensive at all! They are made out of recycled plastic and so light I could carry it with one hand! It is nice and soft to walk on too. They also too have a good selection of colors and styles. Jeremy even mentioned to me how much he likes it. It really has made our patio look a lot nicer and brighter! I am hoping too that I won't have a lot of problems with it fading since it is plastic? Now on to the rest of the yard..uggg...

Have a great day!

Dress of the day...

I decided to go into J C Penny's a couple days ago looking for curtains, and I am so glad I did! I am so excited about this dress! I don't normally shop there much, but when I saw this dress I knew it was coming home with me! I am such a sucker for these maxi dresses, and tie dye too?!? Of course though everyone else must of been thinking the same thing because they were just about gone and I had to have the sales woman take this one off the mannequin. Just in time..;)

Dress: JC Pennys Shoes: Target Jewelery: Target

It was such a windy afternoon, but I thought that made it even more fun with a dress like this. If I look like my shoulders and neck are hurting you would be right. We got rear ended Friday night, and I have been a bit sore even after a great massage and chiro appointment. I feel like I am getting a little hunchbacky. It would probably help if I stood up straighter! Remind me ok? Lol . Besides that though it was a really good day and was able to get some things done. Looking forward to the weekend in this beautiful weather!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss

Hi there! I wanted to show you this lip pencil that I received in my Burch Box this last month. I don't normally go for coral colors like this, but I have been wearing this a lot and really like it! I have to say too it really stay on good also.

 It has been nice to have a new color for spring that I actually like! If you do not know what Burch Boxes are I receive one in the mail every month with beauty samples. It is great! You can also look at the new In Style magazine for this month and they have a article about all the different ones that you can get in the mail. I like Birch Box because it is only $10 a month and I generally get pretty good sized samples! So go get yourself some new color for spring that you have not tried before! You might just love it! Have a great day!

Hi! Happy happy Friday!  I sure have been having fun with this skirt! Did not think that I would be able to put it with much of what I have but I was wrong.. it is just such a great , bold color! And the top I am in luuve with! I had a hard time trying to figure out how I wanted to wear it. I don't have much neon clothing actually none at all..( left it all back in 1986 lol) but for some reason these heels are the exact same color as the light pink of the shirt..crazy I know! How in the world did I score that one?! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Some new bedroom goodies...

Hi ladies! I have been wanting to share with you what I have been up to in the bedroom;) We really needed new bedside tables. We had old ones that were about ten years old from Pottery Barn, and frankly they never held up well even when they were new. So we headed down to Ikea and found these and we LOVE them! I did not think about how much more storage we would get for our room with these which we really needed! They are awesome and I love the look. Then I was over at Tuesday Morning and ran into this chair for only $200! I have been looking for a long tome for a chair and this was what I wanted that did not cost a fortune! I was so excited to find it! I'm still working on things like new pillows for bed and maybe different lamps but for now I like it! I put my necklaces up on the wall and painted our picture above our bed a gold brassy color. So I think I need lamps in a gold color.. I know what I want but just can't find them and don't want to spend a fortune on them in Ballard designs.  

What about you guys? Doing any bedroom improvements?
