What Is On My Cell Phone

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Friday Guys!!! Josh's family just arrived in town today for a little visit and I couldn't be more excited to see familiar faces! While they are catching a little nap after their long drive I thought I would give you a little peak into my cellular device (do people still say that?)

I am OBSESSED  slightly attached (who am I kidding, I am obsessed!) with my cell phone. I absolutely hate saying that, because I want to not be one of those people detached from the real world. Since I spend so much time on my phone I thought I would share some of the pretty cool apps I have!

I just recently downloaded this background from another blogger (wish I could remember who right now!) to give her a little shout out.

I am OCD as you can tell from how organized my phone is, but oh well. 

I section my phone into 10 folders. 
-Business? Not sure what to call this
-Social Media
-Utilities #2?

Yeah it isn't perfect, ha! 

I just picked a handful of apps I thought you'd enjoy to share, because there is no way I was doing the entire phone. You would get bored and I would want to stab my eyes out. So let's avoid that!

Pandora is obvious. If you don't have it get it.
End of Story.

Shazam allows you to record a song 
playing and it tells you what song it is.
Have you ever been out and thought who sings this...
Well BAM this app would have been perfect.

Last is this section AutoRap.
You can record ANYTHING and it makes it into a rap.
The other day Josh said a list of inappropriate words 
and the rap still sounded awesome.

{Social Media}
This entire section shouldn't be new to you.
If you have any specific questions about any of these apps
let me know! 
If you aren't on the Vine or Instagram train what are you doing 
with your life.

The only reason I am showing you this section is for 
I started really randomly learning Italian on my spare time?
This app teaches you step by step. I couldn't tell you 
if I am learning the correct way or not, but it is pretty cool.
lo sono il ragazzo. (Pretty sure that is I am the boy...I'm not a boy, 
but that is all I'm remembering right now!)

{Random aka Awesome 
App Folder, but that was too long}
Idiot Test, Idiot Test 3 and TMT are all those games you 
can play to see if you are an idiot or not. 
I downloaded to find out.

Face Juggler and aLike are both apps 
to that use pictures from your phone.
AND make you laugh uncontrollably. 

Pink Pad is exactly what you think it is.

iShaver PRO is a fake razor that scares people when 
you walk up behind them and press it to there heads and 
they think you are shaving their heads.


I didn't know what to title this section, because it is just so big.
Basically I have the staples...Pinterest, Target, CVS, Walgreens, EBAY, Etsy.

Groupon if you don't have this save you money through group rates.
Anything from gadgets to vacations.

KeyRing keeps all of your reward cards right on your phone.

Imagoo is hard to explain...just trust me download it you won't be sorry!

Cartwheel is connected with Target and basically saves you 
money on the thing you already buy at Target.
If you didn't already have enough reasons to go to Target!

If you have any questions about an app I didn't discuss just let me know! 
I hope you enjoyed a peak into my cell phone!

Embarrassing Things You Didn't Know About Me

Things are about to get real...I read embarrassing confessions from fellow bloggers every week and think I could never be that honest.

{picture via Rotten Ecards}


I wear men's deodorant. 
I know for a fact I can't be alone on this one.
Just read the description, it says it all!
{picture via Old Spice}

I love the TV show Awkward on MTV.
That's right! I am 23 and love watching a show 
about Sophomores in high school.
If you watch the show this is where I would say
"Sorry not Sorry!"
Can you blame me? Look at this guy!
{picture via Pinterest}

I was once part of an "Air Skateboard Team."
Granted I was in the 8th Grade and it might have been a joke.
BUT still pretty embarrassing...basically we jumped at weird angles,
like we were on a skateboard and took pictures and videos.
Might have also worn 80's band T-shirts while doing it.

I have an alert ego...
Dear lord I can't believe I'm sharing this crap!
His name is Louis and is probably roughly 80 years old.
My best friend since 7th grade is his dear friend Phyllis. 
Who is also roughly 80 and each have a bad case of lock jaw.
I would like to say this was something we did ONLY when we were younger,
but then I would be lying to you.

Now that I have shared some of my embarrassing secrets, it's your turn! 
Comment and let me know what you are hiding from behind your perfect blog front!

Five On Friday: Rotten Ecard

Well hello Friday! This week has gone by so quickly and I work all weekend so today isn't as special to me as it is to you, but oh well! I lacked an idea for todays Five on Friday so I thought I would just catch you up on my life via Rotten Ecards...who doesn't love those right? 
I've been collecting some of these that describe my life recently! 
This is the life I live every single day. I love couples that can 
go unplugged to spend time together, but I love 
makeup videos on youtube and Josh loves car websites
to much to unplug for each other, ha! 

I like to refer to it as Youth Alzheimer's! 
I have no memory none.
Just the other day I walked around the parking lot at my work
multiple times looking for my car? Like What?

I have a confession guys...
On facebook when a large website posts a controversial 
picture or status, I like to go through and read all the fights people have on it!
I don't know why, but I love to see people fighting over stupid stuff.
The insults like, "it's you're not your!" and "You're ugly!" never ever get old to me!

I have been hearing, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." FOREVER.
I hate it!
I'm sure skinny feels great, but I don't know that feeling 
so I'm gunna have that piece of cake.
Josh and I have really been trying to eat healthier, but I still can't stand this.

I am sure you guys have noticed I am horrible at spelling and grammar...
I don't know what to say about this?
I try to go back and edit...sometimes.
Let's just go with I reinvent the english language.

Happy Friday Day Guys! Have an awesome weekend!
 Link up with these lovely ladies!

Haul Y'all

Josh and I buy weird stuff...ALL THE TIME! By weird I mean just pretty dang random. 

{picture via RottenEcards}

I REALLY debated doing my haul y'all in the vlog form, but I don't think the world is prepared for this craziness yet! If you want me to venture into the vlogging world I would love to hear some feedback!
{all personal photos}

The first thing we bought semi recently was a new grill. 
It is starting to get nice out so we immediately started looking for a grill deal.
Josh's mom (shout out to her, because I know she reads my blog!) 
told us Big Lots had good deals on grills. 
$199 people! What a deal! 

Embarrassing fitting room picture alert****
I headed to Old Navy the other day with one thing on my radar...
Two words...Pixie Pants. I fell in love with these bad boys.
They were only $25 and the top was $15.
I also bought a super cute pair of black flats for $15
got a white t-shirt for free for buying the pants!
Free shit should be my middle name (But that would be a weird middle name)

Bed Bath & Beyond has sent a 20% off coupon to our house
since we moved here in October!
This week we decided to go check out what they had with our coupon.
Rando shopping trips are not good for Josh and I.

I found this plastic mason jar with a straw that has water in
 between two layers that you can freeze for like a ice effect. 
$8.99...20% off!
Read the instructions because I cracked mine pretty much right away...
I had to exchange it for a new one and I felt dumb. So don't do that!

Josh found this fish basket for the grill. 
We eat a TON of samon and it didn't go so well on the grill last time.
We will give this a try and if you are interested enough
 I will let you know how it goes.
Also $8.99...20% off!

The last thing we picked up at Bed Bath & Beyond was this candle.
Josh thought it was "cool!" 
It is hard to tell, but the wicks are in an s shape.
 I held the container over top the candle if you were wondering 
why I would light the candle with the container still on it!
It is by the company Ribbonwick and was on sale for:
$18...20% off!

If you liked knowing about all the random things we bought recently let me know! 
We literally go shopping many times a week so I could do this all the time!

We have been really into Detox water.
This is just cucumber and strawberries in water over night.

Spinach salad, cucumber, strawberries, blue cheese, and raspberry vinaigrette. 

Shredded chicken, cheese, avocado, cilantro, a little lime juice, salt, wrapped in a burrito and baked.

March Birchbox Review

My Bitchbox arrived last week and I couldn't contain my excitement...

{picture via Rottenecards}

I started to share a little bit about how I was debating doing either another blog devoted to beauty posts OR just adding these types of post right to this blog. After some of my bloggy friends talked me off the ledge of having two blogs, I decided to just add more things on here. 

So if you like the lifestyle portion of this blog and would prefer to not read beauty posts I'm giving you a heads up that this is beauty related...come back tomorrow and I will be talking food and who doesn't love food. 

{all pictures are personal}

This card comes each month with the box and breaks down the products.
If you are interested in the full size prices they are listed here.

I just thought it was appropriate to start here.
This chick doesn't eat dark chocolate,
I couldn't not let you guys know how it was soooo
I "forced" Joshua to eat it and he was so upset I made him.
No, but really he said it was delicious!

I was impressed with this sample size and product.
I have a really dry face so I use a moisturizer on it
I switched to using this as soon as I got it and have LOVED it!
There is no way I am paying $39 though for the full price when this runs out.

Yeah so then I got this bad boy...
I don't even know where to start here. 
It smells, was impossible to get the packaging open (I had to cut it with scissors),
and it did nothing for me. 
Personal opinion only.

It is hard to tell this color from the picture, 
but who the hell cares there are half naked men on the packaging!
I got the color pie and out of all the colors I could have 
recieved this might not have been the best for me, but it was decent on my lips.
You can use it on your cheeks or lips.
The full size is a palette with all 6 colors!

Sigh. I know I promised to never complain about foil packets,
but come on they do kind of suck. 
I can't tell if I like a product from this small of an amount.
I could also pick this packet up myself.
On a positive note it smelled AMAZING! 

This is the same brand as the above product. 
I had never heard of this brand before, but I'm going to assume that 
they sell smells extremely yummy. 
I loved this product as well, but was confused by the term "mask."
When I think of a mask I think like thick and visible when you put it on. 
This is not that way. It is think on your face, but it does smell amazing, hardens as it dries, and wipes off easily!

Rating Scale:
* = It blew
**= It wasn't the worst thing I've ever experienced
***= I liked it more than I hated it
****=It was pretty close to being the bomb dot com
*****= It was like heaven in a box

March: ** 
I am so sad to only give this box 2 stars since I have been happy with my other boxes so far, but I don't like dark chocolate, the foil packet was so little, I couldn't use one of the products due to a weird color for me, and the lip repair was just nasty!

I still love Birchbox, affectionately known as Bitchbox, and I recommend you getting it...use the code below to sign up!

Five On Friday: You Should Check Out That Blog

Hey Hey Hey! (I'm Fat Albert?) No okay I'm not, but I am here to share with you some pretty awesome people today.

If you haven't noticed I don't do sponsorship or understand it or really get into the whole follow me please with a cherry on top. BUT I do love to spread the love through comments (hopefully good ones!) and if I really love ya I share your button or your link to the right of my page (for no money!) That's right these ladies didn't pay me (I wish!), but I just love them so you should probably check them out. 

I thought today I would share 5 of them and why you should check them out just for the fun of sharing the love. 

***Disclaimer: Like I said none of these ladies paid me to say nice things about them (not that I am judging that what so ever, I think that's cool and a great idea!!!!) ALSO I picked these 5 people, because their blogs are all different. I wanted to share something for everyone! Last they are not in an order.

If you are interested in a certain type of blog use this as a key:
1. Funny Blog
2. Beauty Blog
3. Fashion Blog
4. Lifestyle/A Really Real Blog
5. DIY/Lifestyle/Fashion/Everything Blog

Voyage of the Mee Mee
You have heard me talk about her the second Tuesday of everything month, because she hosts a link up called, "Sh*t Men Say." Things you need to know is that she is INSANELY funny and well that really should be all you need to know. Oh and if you are a sensitive person stay away from her blog, because she has no filter at all. 

Some quotes directly from her blog...
"I'm sure that today everyone will be posting about all of the awesome shit they did this weekend, but, I'm just over here like "hey, the highlight of my weekend was Doritos."'

"(Although, in the interest of full disclosure, there was that one instance when I Googled "bleached asshole" because I couldn't believe it was really a thing."

I don't squat when I use public restrooms... I sit my ass right down on the toilet seat without a seat cover. 

So if that didn't convince you nothing will! She is also on top of being very funny, a super sweet person! She has never not taken the time to email me back or respond to a post of mine!
Like the key says this is a beauty blog. AND my favorite one! I have been following along with this blog long before I started my own. She is freaking adorable, does tons of GREAT giveaways, and has the best beauty tips. 

"I admit--eye shadow palettes are my weakness. And if they're great quality and a great price, like ones from Wet N Wild, they always end up in my hands."

"Since I had so many questions about my storage, I thought I would share more info today. I chose acrylic because it is very easy to clean."

"A little treat I look forward to every month is my Ipsy bag."-And she includes unboxing videos, along with others!

So if you love all things beauty related check this women out!

Darcy@ a memory of us
Darcy is a fashion blogger and a fantastic one at that. She mainly posts her outfits and at the end of each post she shares a little bit about her life. I normally am not HUGE into fashion bloggers, but Darcy has this way of making you feel like you know her. She tells you why she wore the outfit and it is always fun going to her page. Take a sneak peak at some of my favorite outfits of hers! 

She recently got engaged so on top of the adorable outfits she posts you can also hear about her exciting wedding details! 
Lauren@ Eat, Drink, and Be Lauren
Eat, Drink, and Be Lauren
If you want some sheer honesty and just an all around real person this is the blog to start following. Lauren does not paint a picture of a perfect life and I love her for it! It is a lifestyle blog in the sense that you know every detail of what she is doing and I love that too! She once did a picture every hour of the day (that she was awake!) 

"Bloggers have a reputation of painting pictures that are way too pretty and perfect about what their lives are like. Well, I like to do my own thing so instead of making my life seem perfect, I am going to flat out tell you about some of the less-than-glamorous things happening in my house these days."

"I say what I feel without thinking it through more often than I would like to admit."

"I use parenthesis more often than the average person (sorry) (see? It's a sickness!)"

I mean she is just seriously an awesome person that is pretty cool so check her out! And she too loves to spread some blogging love, she once gave one of my posts a shout out just because she liked the idea. Let's get real how often does someone take the time to do that?
Last, but not least!
Becky@ A Girl and Her Sparkles
A Girl and Her Sparkles
Becky is so freaking adorable, I mean come on look at her and her dog! I love this blog because it is such a variety of things. She does DIY projects, Cooking/Recipes, OFTD's, She used to do Birchbox reviews, and lots of sharing of things she is currently into. AND she is seriously ALWAYS positive. I wish I could be like that. 

"I made this crockpot dip for work last week. One of our respiratory therapists is leaving for a new job so we had a pitch in and the theme was "something from pinterest". I randomly picked this dip because it seemed easy, and it could cook while I slept for work"

 "I purchased some yards of elastic to make my own hair bands - we'll see how this goes, how hard can it be?!"
See she is a pretty interesting person! Her blog is cute, positive, and just makes you want to visit it! 

Okay so I hope I didn't creep these ladies out by being such a fan girl! Definitely check out at least one of their blogs if not all of them I promise you won't be disappointed!

Link up with these wonderful ladies!
