which layers? New Hair cut!

Does anyone else get excited when they go for a hair cut? This weekend I’m going to my hair cutter to chop off fourteen inches off, and get a new hair style. I’ve had the same look for two years, but when it grows to my butt I always cut it off and give it to Locks Of Love. I’ve always just kept it the same though just cut it off until my shoulders.

Well this time I’m not cutting it that short, but I’ve decided to get extreme layers. I’m super excited and can’t wait, but also nervous. I’ve had layers before but none that you could notice, but this time you will (hopefully). I’m not the type of person to dye or do crazy things with my hair. I love my hair color and I like having medium to long hair length. So to try and do extreme layers some people probably think I’m crazy, because its nothing that crazy or exciting to them.

I have two friends who they love to do different things to their hair. One loves to change her hair color, and the other loves to do different hair styles. But for me I just never thought it would look go on me so never did. Even though I’ve always dreamed of having dark red hair. Like Hayley Williams 2005 red, but I’ll most likely never do it.

I’m nervous to do do the layers, because I don’t know if they’ll look good on me. I’ll probably have to straighten my hair every day. As I’ve said before in a past blog, I have frizzy hair, plus wavy. With cutting a lot off, it make become curly and a poof ball. which then I think to myself “Well I could just straighten it”. My hair will be shorter so it’s not like there will be so much. Other then the fact I have think hair. My hair may look shinier and healthy once again so maybe it won’t look bad, right?

I’ve been looking through so many pictures of long length layers, and I’ve come across two that I love but can’t decide between the two.

Which one should I do? or if you have any other suggestions I would love to hear it.

Hello Fall

Do have a season you love so much that you super excited when it gets close, and upset when its over? Well mine is fall. I get so happy when it gets closer. With that being said I decided to make a blog listing my top ten reasons I love Autumn.

 

Falling leaves

636102019093698152101582906_fall.jpg

It’s just so pretty and eery at the same time. I love the different colors that they turn to. But if you go to the woods or drive down a long country drive way it looks eery, and I love it.

 

Hoodie weather!

91e8dd934e0d0f1c3ecec4243a175350

If you met anyone who knows me they will tell you I love hoodies. I had one VCU hoodie I got in ninth grade, and just last year I gave it up for retirement. It got to the point it was having surgery on top of surgery ( it was a sad moment for me to officially stop wearing it). Then my boyfriend got me new hoodie from a theme park we went to, and now my dad got me Hocus Pocus hoodie! Which leads to number .three..

 

Hocus Pocus!!!

hocus-pocus-30th-anniversary-look-back-2

I mean seriously who doesn’t love Hocus Pocus, and if you haven’t watched you its a must! I’ve been in love with this movie since I was little. it came out when I was three, and have been watching it five times a year every since 🙂

 

Halloween

Halloween-Hero-1-A

Even though I don’t trick or treat or pass out candy (because I’m working) I love Halloween. I love seeing parents dress their little toddlers, and taking them out it’s so cute. Plus I love being able to dress up (kind of) for work, and also having an excuse to spray my hair black which is my favorite color.

 

Hot Apple Cider

IMG_5364-1080x450

I know not everyone likes apple cider, but I do. It taste so good. I mean its just apple juice but warm, and apple juice is amazing! At least I think so.

 

Bonfires

Even though I don’t go to a lot of bonfires, I love the smell of burning wood. Plus it looks so pretty. Being out side and smelling someone doing a bonfire, or fire place it smells so good.

 

Hot Chocolate 🙂

I mean I know you can have hot chocolate any time of the year, but doesn’t it feel so nice to sit down on a cold night cuddling with a blanket watching movies with a hot chocolate with marshmallows? It just makes it taste just that much better.

 

Dark Colors

Bats-bats-39856625-736-736.jpg

So I’m the type of person that wears and loves dark colors. Black, dark red, silver, and royal purple are my favorite colors. I wear them all year love, but it seems like most people like to wear them during fall and winter. I paint my nails only two colors black or purple, and I always have people judging me for it. Do I care nope, but it is nice having a few months where no one asks me why.

 

Colder weather

123894c8268b19ce847fee934a85e952--autumn-day-autumn-forest.jpg

The cool nights and rainy days yes please. People never understand how I love rainy days during fall and winter. I mean summer and spring there’s to much humidity when it rains, but fall it’s just cold and gloomy. It’s always pretty, but its just that much better when its colder outside.

 

Time for Boots

4nkw6l-l

I know some people wear boots all year long, but I’m not one of them. I would love to, but I love sandals way to much as well. I love wearing them though. I don’t like that tall ones, because I’m to short so it makes me look shorter. So I’ll just stick to the none high heels ankle length boots, and I’ll be happy.

 

Well that’s my top ten reasons I love fall. I would love to know what’s yours? Or your favorite season?

Social Media, different person?

Social Media…

Have you ever noticed how some people act differently on the internet then they do in person? Or how they make a bigger deal over social media then they do in person? Well recently I’ve noticed this about a Youtuber I was a fan of for about a year and a half or so. She came to my work (which apparently she’s been coming for a while). I didn’t know this because she was coming on the days I was not working.

One of the employees called us one night and told us that we might be getting a phone call from our boss. She told us what had happened, but didn’t tell us everything just that one of the other employees did something to a customer (which the employee apologized twice). We had a conversation with the employee and told her how she needed to handle situations. Well a week went by I hadn’t been on YouTube for a week or two, so I didn’t know about the video the YouTuber made about us until my friend told me about how someone made a video about what happened to her and sent me the link. When I saw it was her I had mixed emotions. One I was a fan so I got excited finding out she came to my hometown. Two after watching the video I got upset with the one employee who told us about the situation, because she didn’t tell us the whole story.

I wrote the YouTuber on Facebook, which she had listed on her YouTube video. I apologized and told her that we talked to our employees. I waited for a response and there was nothing. Two weeks went by when I saw her and her boyfriend at the theater. She didn’t say anything and I didn’t want to go up to her and say anything, because I already wrote here and if she wasn’t going to acknowledge that we tried to apologize there was no point in trying in person. I’m also a very awkward person so I didn’t want to make things worse. My father found out they came back and asked if she ever replied. I told him no, but sometimes people don’t always see messages on Facebook and with her being a Youtuber maybe she didn’t get to it yet. He made me look to see if there was any other way of contacting her. I told him lets just give it some more time that she would eventually see the message, but he told me he wanted me to find another way. So I looked on her video and found her Email (which is public by the way). I emailed her saying the same thing I said on Facebook.

Another two weeks or so went by, still no response. They came back, and my mother found out. She said they where nice and sweet, that they even joked around with her. Her boyfriend came out to get popcorn or what not. My mom told me to tell him she wanted to talk to him. She wanted to apologize in person. He was sweet and nice and my mom liked him. She said they didn’t act no where like they did in the video. That night she posted a video that she made before the movies. I was watching and got excited that she finally had her show coming out. When all of a sudden she made a comment about how they where coming back to the movie theater that they had the incident. She said how the manager somehow got her email and Facebook and wrote her.  As if she didn’t have it in her video description and made it seem like I was stalking her. I don’t know if she meant to sound like that, but it did. Of course I got a little upset, then she went on saying that I told her I was a fan, and that she didn’t believe it. Said I was trying to kiss up to her, which made me more mad then upset.

I don’t understand how if you’re trying to keep followers, why would you put someone down. You don’t know who is watching your videos, and you don’t know who’s going to be a fan or what not. I guess I’m not the kind of person who acts differently over the internet, so I’ll never understand. What I write or say on social media is the same things I say or do in person.

I’ve debated on writing this post for a while. I was a fan and I loved her videos. I still watch her, but it just doesn’t feel the same anymore after seeing how she is. Seeing how she made a bigger deal then what it was. I mean I know what happened was wrong, and it was a big deal. The thing is a few things have come out about that night, and not everything she said was true. I know everyone has their own sides, but its funny how she made it seem like no one apologized when the lady who started it apologized twice. And how she made it seem like I was trying to kiss her butt, when I wasn’t I didn’t even want to write her the second time. And maybe if she actually was that upset I know I would have felt happy that the manager or owner of the place I had a bad experience in tried to reach out to me. She did go on and say that she was thankful that we wrote her, but if you where so thankful why try to put the person down before you finally said it?

Day 1: Becoming healthy

Has anyone else struggled with their weight? I know I have. I’ve always struggled with my weight since I was little. No matter what diet I tried it never worked. I would lose a lot, then I gained twice as much…

Well I’ve decided to change my health and the way I try to lose weight. I’ve tried diets, pills, just eating salads, ect. This time around I’m going to just eat healthier, drink a lot of water, and work out. I’m going to watch what I put in my body, and how much. I’m also going to try to blog as much as I can with updates (like a journal) I’ve heard a lot of people say how writing down their progress and keeping a vlog or blog helped them stay determined.

Today I’m starting my weight loss journey (again). Even if I don’t lose a lot of weight, at least I know I’ll become way more healthier. I’m so tired of fighting with myself and how I look. I always act like I’m fine, when really I feel nervous when I have to do certain things or feel fat and ugly when I can’t wear something that I use to love.

I went through a health issue that I’ve been debating on talking about in my blog, but because of it I went through a long period where I couldn’t lose weight and when I did lose weight it made me look as if I was pregnant. Which all through high school I looked eight months pregnant. And less then two years ago I ended up in the hospital. I lose Thirty-three pounds in ten days after I had to have an emergency surgery. I thought I would be fine after, and hoped to lose a lot of weight. Instead I gained it all back. So now I’m going to be dedicated to making myself healthier.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and with both parents having health issues with diabetes. And my health issue I’ve had in the past. I don’t want to end up like my parents, at least not by choice. If I can help myself I am. I know most people want to lose just because they want to look sexy and skinny. I just want to be healthy, and make better choices.

If you have any suggestions of what I should do, or what tell me what has worked for you please feel free to comment.

Living with Frizzy

Are you the type of person with frizzy hair? Not dry or damaged, but just frizzy?

I’ve always had frizzy hair, no matter what I do it stays that way. When I was younger I washed my hair everyday. Then found out it was bad for you, so I started washing it every other day then every two days. My hair has become a little healthier. I use a hair mask when I wash, and use serums after. Then I heard about coconut oil. I started putting it in the night before I wash my hair. It has made my hair so much more healthier, but still frizzy.

My hair feels soft and healthy, but I hate that no matter what I do it looks like a lion. I sometimes straighten my hair, and it looks so nice. But I want to wear my natural wavy hair and love it.

Here is a list of everything I use in my hair…

I’m Done holding my tongue

I’m not the type of person that likes to get involved with the topic of racism, but recently I’ve had enough. I’ve been holding it in for a long time. Living in a small town and having a Spanish mother, I’ve seen and dealt with a few racism situations. In the past couple of years more then usual. I’ve always kept my mouth closed and just held my tongue.

My mother had always told me stories about how some people would treated her when she first moved here and after she married my father.  People would walk up to my dad ask what race my mother was. Or when she went to the store one time the lady didn’t want to except the check because it was under my dad’s name and didn’t believe she was his wife. One time when we went to look for a new mattress the guy was nice and friendly with me until my mother and aunt walked in. Then he instantly changed and refused to even talk to us to sale us a mattress.

I’ve always grown-up in the movie theater business. My grandfather owned the old Theater in my hometown, and my parents ran it. When I was little I never paid attention to how people acted towards my mother. She told me a few stories, but nothing was to bad. She would sometimes get upset because someone would say something too her about her accent, or they would say something to her.

We have been running the newer movie theater for the past almost 9 years, and it has become a lot worse. A few years ago when the second twilight movie came out a guy got so mad at my mom and hit the window and told her “to go back to her country” and through out the years she’s been called an terrorist and an al qaeda. She’s been called an Mexican ( since apparently people in my small hometown believe all people with an accent and tan skin must be Mexican).

People have asked me who is worse black or whites? And I always say honestly I can’t. White’s love to threaten you, and black’s love to play the race card. I’m not saying this is how it is everywhere.This is how it is where I live, and I’m not saying it’s everyone. I’ve had so many white people who believe they are better then the workers and who look at us up and down, and LOVE to complain. If they don’t get their way they always have to threaten that they are going to report us (which when they do the cops and owner knows we are doing our jobs). Then I’ve had younger black teenagers tell me I’m a racist all because we’ve had to kick them out for being loud and disrespectful to the people around them. Again I’m not saying it’s only black acting out. There are plenty of white teenagers that are just as disrespectful and have had to kick out, but when we tell them to leave they don’t make a big deal, they shut up and leave. No cops have to be involved and they don’t text their whole family to come to fuss and fight. Maybe one mother comes back, but guess what we treat them the same way!

I use to be a cheerful and outgoing person up until we took over the cinema. I was always told working at a theater would make you hate people, and it was true! I can’t stand people, I mean I give everyone a chance until they give me a reason and believe me they do.  Now I can’t stand to be around people, and I would rather just be alone and not deal with the drama or rudeness of people. I’m so sick and tired of all races.

The other night we had a sold out A show, which of course we had complaints. It was the same group we have always had problems with sneaking in to rated R movies, talking back and being disrespectful, being loud, and using their phones during the movie. Last time they where in there we pulled them aside and warned them if we got one more complaint they would be thrown out and never allowed back in. Well needless to say when we got the complaint my dad went in and told them to come with him. Another teenager with attitude pushed up against him and called him an “MF racist” my dad turned to him and told him”you know what you’re out as well”. The wouldn’t listen so he called the cops…shocker! The cops told the kids to leave and to not come back, and they gave the cops attitude. Well an hour or so went by the movie was over.  A lady came up to me and asked ” who was that creepy man walking up and down the theater” I told her “one of the managers” Well we had a few words I tried to stay nice and polite. Then she asked  for the owners number. I was writing down the website which had all of the owners information. When all of a sudden she called him a racist. I became furious and pissed. Still trying to be nice, I handed her the paper. I told her he is not a racist and that she didn’t know the whole story. Trying not to start more problems since my father was already dealing with stress of the teenagers from earlier. She then started talking to my dad and started with him. My dad finally blow up, and even offered to give her the newspaper’s number.

My dad doesn’t like to throw people out of the theater none of us do, but apparently people think we do. The owner is always asking us about the complaints he gets. We’ve told him how bad it gets in this town at night time. I’ve not saying where I live is bad. I mean it’s a small country town and I think its beautiful, but at night you don’t see a lot of people out an about late at night, because of how people are in this town.

My parents raised me to not judge because of race and color. I’ve always acknowledged everyone’s race, but always treated everyone the same. My Father is the same way, so when someone calls us a racist of course we are going to take it offensive and get mad. I wish people would stay out of others business. If you don’t know all the facts or story, then just leave it alone and keep your mouth shut.

I’m sorry if you don’t agree with me, and see another side of these situations. I’m not trying to make people mad or say that one race is worse then the others, because they aren’t. I’ve seen all races take things to the extreme. I’m just tired of keeping everything in and this weekend I’ve had enough.

Living with dizziness

Before I begin I want to put it out there no I’m not a doctor or a nurse. I’m just writing what I’ve experienced. Everyone is different and reacts to things differently. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way.

Let’s begin…

Ever since I was little I’ve lived with dizziness. One of my first memories from my childhood was the Christmas I got my doll house. I remember being in so much misery that even when my dad was carrying me every movement he made it got worse. My sister was helping me open my presents, because I couldn’t move my head or body to much. Whenever I did it got worse.

The worse one yet was two Christmas eves ago. My mother asked me to go to the store. It was rainy and cloudy so i thought I would be fine, since the only time up until then it only got bad when it was sunny outside, or in light all together. I went to the bank then the store, and all was fine. So I thought, when I got out of the car I was walking through the parking lot when all of a sudden it hit me hard. It was so bad I couldn’t think, I tried keeping my eyes open as mush as I could. I grabbed onto a tree that was in the middle of the parking lot. I dialed the last number I called, luckily it was my sister. I couldn’t even think to tell her what was going on. She realized what was happening. She tried to calm me down and came as fast as she could to get me.

I felt so embarrassed. I was in the middle of the parking lot trying to stay calm while my sister was twenty minutes away.  In the rain holding onto a tree. Whenever I had a spell it only lasted a minute or two. These one was over twenty some minutes. For the first time I thought I was going to pass out.

These dizzy spells always seem to happen when the weather is changing or when a front is coming. Winter has always been the worse if you haven’t already guessed by my stories. As you can also tell I never know when exactly they will happen. When I was little the nurses and doctors would tell me it was my sinuses and I would most likely grow out of it, but yet here I am at almost twenty-seven still dealing with the dizziness.

My boyfriend asked me what are my symptoms. I tried to think how to explain but couldn’t. Until just yesterday I had one at three in the morning. I tried my hardest to stay calm and focus on how i felt.  Other then my head feeling like it was going to explode, my whole body became hot and sweaty. Then once it was almost over I feel ice cold and my heart starts beating fast and hard. So hard I can feel it in my throat, the front, and back of my chest. Almost as if it’s about to pop out. Every time I get like this, all day long I feel sick to my stomach, I become very sensitive to light, sensitive to song, and feel unbalanced.

After a dizzy spell happens all I want to do is fall back to sleep, but if I do I’ll wake up worse then before. I have to wear sunglasses inside, it doesn’t help much but it’s something right? And no matter what you do NEVER HAVE CAFFEINE. Every time I drink coffee or tea it makes it ten times worse. I’ve tried all types of headache and sinus medicines, nothing had helped. Until the other day my boyfriend researched about vertigo. He found out that benadryl helps with some people with dizziness. So I tried it last night and it works! I took two and when I woke up this morning no dizziness, well at least right away. Through out the day I was a little dizzy, but not much.

I hope one day I’ll be able to stop or at least be able to manage my dizzy spells better, but for now at least I found a way to not wake up so dizzy.

Swiftie since the beginning.

I’ve been a fan of Taylor Swift since the beginning, anyone who knows me knows this. I love most of her songs. I mean you’re not going to love every song that someone makes. Even if you dislike her you know there’s at least one song of hers you secretly like. Or if you don’t like it, it still gets stuck in your head at some point in time.

I know not everyone is a Taylor fan, but I just can’t help but love her. No matter what she does. Even when she changed her song It took me a while to get into it, but then I slowly started falling in love with her new style. I love that she never did things just because that’s what the media wanted her to do. She always stayed herself.

Her new song is AMAZING! I was hooked from the second I first heard it. I love her new style, and the whole FU to everyone that has hurt her in the past. She’s never afraid to write and sing her feelings. That’s what I love so much about her.

I’ve never taken sides about the whole Kim, Kanye, and Katy Perry issues. Because honestly I can’t stand any of them. Kim and Kanye think the World is there’s and they are up their own butts. Katy Perry, well her music I use to love but then she just because I don’t know. I just can’t stand her music anymore. Plus she thinks shes all that when she’s just annoying…in my opinion anyway.

I’ve always been obsessed that even my sister makes jokes saying how If I ever loved a girl it would be her. Even though my best friend said that she believes that would be Ruby Rose, but that’s another story haha.

What I’m trying to get to is no matter what life gives her, she will fight through and will still be just as amazing, talented, and beautiful as she always has been.

Sorry not sorry

Who else is obsessed with Demi Lovato?  There is no denying her talent. Her music is catchy, fun, and you can’t help but start dancing when you hear most of her songs. I know Some people are not going to agree with me, but even if you dislike her there is at least one song of hers you know you have gotten stuck in your head.

I’ve been a huge fan since Camp Rock. I thought she was pretty and I loved her singing voice.  Her music has changed a little, and I usually get upset when artist change. But with her I’ve enjoyed every album and song she’s done. I also think she is prettier now then she ever has been.

I’ve always loved her fashion. She can pull off anything she wears and look gorgeous. It doesn’t matter if she wears make-up or not she looks beautiful either way.

I’ve been watching the Netflix series “From Dust Till Dawn” and there where a few episodes she was in. It was pretty cool seeing her play that character. I don’t understand why people say she’s not a good actress, everything I’ve seen her in I’ve loved. I mean I could be biaest because being a fan, but I don’t see why so many people dis on her. She’s been acting since she was young, so that must mean she isn’t but so bad right?
