AT THAT TIME OF THE YEAR…Blogmas #1!

Cold breeze touching the tip of your nose, all wrapped up like a pig-in-a-blanket, sipping hot cocoa by the fireplace, trying to catch those sneaky snowflakes on your tongue, shoved while shopping, etc, ETC. The list goes on but the one thing that nearly everyone does, is making NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS. Oh how…cliche. But everyone has their moments. Like me! Yes, that’s right. I, as in myself and me, am making that cliche. But that cliche is more a timeline for me. Not saying that I haven’t started it now. But I would like to reach my goals by the end of the next new year, 2017!  What, as you ask, are my New Years resolutions? Well….here’s my list *yes, a list, not one but multiple*.

      20161203_203441

Alright, so let’s get my most cliche resolution out of the way. I want to lose weight. Sooo unique Yolanda! I know it’s not a bad one but I hear it all the time from people and their resolutions. And I am part of the cliche group, ain’t no shame here though. I am not saying that I am completely unhappy with my physique. I got the rack and the booty. *insert winking emoji*. But in all seriousness, I do want to lose some poundage. I like to play sports and do adventurous activities. I can do pretty good in those but the weight and bad knee (from a incident when I was few years younger) do make some stuff more difficult than they need to be. So this is what I will be doing. I will make posts of how I am losing the weight, that way, maybe it might help you. Also to keep me on track. Well, technically, I want to lose inches. Pounds tend to look different on everyone. My goal to lose 10 inches overall. Keeping it realistic!

Next resolution! Plan, write, and publish my very own traditional hard book and e-book. It will be a step by step baking creations. I love to bake and create unique, crazy sculptures. So I decided to help others learn how to make special cakes without paying a hefty price to get it. Obviously you would need to get the ingredients, that’s a given. There will be a segment where its for kids to do, with very minimal parent assistance like putting it in the oven or melting. Then there is the other part. Cake sculpting! Specialty cakes! Cake Dazzling!! Okay I’m done. Anyways, there will be simple cakes, cake buildings, cake characters and so much more. Princesses, castles, buttercream, lights, OH MY! Yes you read that right, lights. I will even show to add lights to cakes and even show one to two cakes with special effects, like movable parts. I will even show alternatives to certain parts of a cake. Still finishing the outline but getting close. I’ll even write posts during the process. To assist others who are thinking about making their own hard copy and e-book.

THIRD! Open my own online boutique. I have always wanted to have my own online store. My bigger dream for it is actually to open a store front for it. I like clothes and finding looks I see on celebrities but more budget friendly. I will start out with only women clothes. Then probably add accessories and shoes. Maybe I will even sell kids and men clothes down the line. I think this would be so much fun. I have already chosen not to do dropshipping. I would prefer to carry inventory. Because of this decision, I would start out small then slowly raise up. Just like the other resolutions, I will post about the process. I would like to help people who want to achieve the same resolutions. I want them to know how I am achieving it and avoid making the same mistakes I will probably make. Oh, who am I kidding?! I WILL make mistakes. Now all I got to do is choose the style. Or maybe even go with a little of everything. Probably will go with that. I do like a bit of all styles.

By the way, technically I do not know how this Blogmas works. I know I started late, that’s for sure. I’m not sure of the topics these posts suppose to be but if I am doing it wrong, then….Blogmas, Yolanda style. I really do hope I am doing alright for my first blogmas post. Hopefully I’m doing good. Am I suppose to write a post everyday or what? Or just write posts that are related to the holidays? I think I need to research more. Yup, definitely. By the way, I meant when I wrote that I have already started to work on my resolutions. As I am typing this post, I am working on my cake book.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST! Starting a Youtube channel with my guy and myself. Alright so knowing myself, this is probably not my last resolution. But I do got to limit myself. I really do got a LOT of ideas. You could ask my mother and all of my siblings. I kind of can get out of hand with ideas. But they love me, craziness and all. Plus I am their entertainment. Anyways, back to the youtube idea. My guy and I thought this would be so much fun. We were thinking about doing diys, cooking challenges against each other, testing weird products, trying out unique food and flavors, all kinds of stuff. We are going over what we need to start off with. Also, we decided for our first video to be pancake art. That will be fun. I am better at cooking but he is better at drawing. So it will be interesting to see who will do better. I always wondered if those pancake arts were more for show than to eat. Alright, they are for show but I want to know if they taste good as well. I will link our youtube channel(once it’s created) to my blog for those of you who would be interested and want to see me make a fool of myself. I know I do!

By the way, I do have a surprise for you all and will write the process of dealing with it in the future. Once it becomes official. I will give a hint: the sound rattle, rattle. I hope this post was good for you. I wanted this post to also show that you don’t have to wait until the new year begins to start on your resolutions. And that it is not so crazy to have more than one resolutions. Thanks for reading! Until next time lovelies!!

JustFab clothing review!!!

Hey everyone! I hope all of you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. Actually, for me, I like the day after Thanksgiving. TURKEY SOUP!!!! Better than turkey itself. Love it! So this past year I have finally decided to be…ME, MYSELF, and I. I will believe in things I used to believed and cared for, do the stuff I liked doing, and wear the clothes styles I like. Just because I am a mom, it does not me I must leave my identity behind. So first off, the clothes I wear. I love fashion! Well, ok, my sense of fashion, which I think others like too. Anyhooo *that’s right, I wrote that*, I am rebuilding my collection of clothes and shoes. I ordered myself one pair of jeans and a blouse from this website called JustFab a clothing subscription.

I shall tell you about this business. From what I have gathered in my brain. JustFab is a subscription service with the option to skip the month. If you don’t skip the month by the 5th *correct me if I’m wrong* you will be charged $39.95. If you do not want to skip, then you can use the $39 towards your purchase. When you sign up, you have to take a questionnaire to help the stylists determine your style. You can actually change it every month, especially if you have something going on the next month. Like you can request styles for parties one month then the next month nothing is going on, so you can request styles for casual. Or you can do what I do, I request for all styles! The questionnaire not only helps the stylists create personalized picks of clothes, but also bags, shoes, and accessories. But don’t worry, you do not have to shop only the personalized picks, you can shop the whole website. Also the sizes go from extra small to plus size. I can’t remember the exact size numbers. That’s it…I think…oh wait, here’s a little extra for you all. JustFab is connected to two other websites: FabKids and Fabletics.

I know what you are thinking, “Um, girl, get to the clothes!”.  Okay, okay! By the way, if you’re new, warning I tend to write what I say out loud. Onto the clothing I recently got from them!

First off, the jeans. These are high-waisted skinny distressed jeans. They have a little stretch to them. I got them in the size 16w. These are pretty comfortable. I got them for the price of $26.83. *There was a sale going on when I bought this and the blouse* I normally don’t purchase these kind of jeans because buying jeans with holes is…I do not know. But these were cute AND I got an extra discount *psst, that’s the real reason why I bought them*. Yes, that is my cat rubbing against my legs btw. NEXT!

Let’s talk about this blouse. This is a zip back lace blouse. I got this in the color “Oxblood” *their color name, not mine* and it also comes in black. This is lace vintage-style blouse. It has a stand up collar and single button cuffs. Obviously, it is sheer, so it has that sexy appeal to it. You can definitely style this in multiple ways. As you can see, I choose to wear it by itself, with just my bra under it. You can wear it with a skinny strap shirt under as well. I got it in the size 1x because of my thick arms. It is really comfortable actually. From the picture above, it has a full length zipper. It really isn’t hard to put on. Oh yeah, the price, that I got it at was $14.09, but the original is $29.95.

I am enjoying these two pieces of clothing. Come along on my train travel to my true identity. Exciting! By the way, this not is sponsored or have affiliated links. I just love this website, I got many shoes from them and I finally decided to give their clothing a try. Good decision Yolanda! Yay for me. And CUT! That’s all I got to say. Until next time Lovelies!!
