And a few more words from Naptural85

This isnt a DIY project exactly.. but its Afro-Indy chic none the less. Multi-purpose clothes is whats up. Plain and simple... Point Blank! Below is a video on how to sport your Maxi Dress during the cold season...

I already do this on the regular with peasant skirts, and graphic t-shirts. But she puts it so eloquently.

Do you wear your maxi dress in the winter? Have any other tips?

Organic Grocery Shopping on a BUDGET!

I know this seems silly right? Organic and Budget being in the same sentence. Unless you are saying, "I cant go organic, because I'm on a budget." Organic food is expensive! I wish I could go Organic! I'm considering starting a stoop garden...

Any way, Naptural85 just posted her latest video with tips on how to do just that. Stay organic, on a a tight budget... AND $80 AT THAT!  Check it out.

I already round up my prices as I shop. And I try to keep coupons on me. (Budding coupon extremist) But I never stick to my list...EVER! She still has a cool video.

How do you shop, and what tips do you have that helps you stick to your budget???

Biggest Loser Challenge - update

Hey guys!

I wanted to post a few thingy things. :)

This is my super healthy breakfast...that just may not be that healthy. Its oatmeal. :) I actually cant stand oatmeal, I just cant deal with the texture. But I've been building a tolerance to it.  I've learned a few things to get around the texture..

1) Go with Rolled Oats. A girlfriend of mine made me realized that the instant stuff is mushy..hence the disgusting texture.

2) Dont over cook it. Or just bake it. I have a few Daniel Fast recipes that made me start to change my mind about this breakfast grain.

3) MAKE IT CHUNKY! I have to add banana's, apples, dried fruit, brown sugar and granola to my oatmeal. Thats why its not as healthy as it probably should be. :) lol.

How do you guys fix your oatmeal?

Hasta UNT!

p.s. I'm making this for dinner. Its Potato Parmesan and Chive crusted Talapia. I'm going to eat a salad with mine, but fix twice baked potatoes for TBG.  Wish me luck..on not screwing it up. lol

Biggest Loser Challenge - update

Happy Monday,

I found my first official work out!

My mother introduced me to Leslie's workouts about a year ago. I've been hooked since. It's awesome cardio, and its easy to build up your stamina. She always starts off at a nice steady pace, introduces you to the basic moves you will do throughout the work out. Then you're off, moving to the beat.

I've read alot of reviews where people complained about her voice. I personally dont mind her. She keeps you going throughout the workout. Do you want her to be silent??? People just want something to complain about. But anyway, I zone out and my body just follows along. :)

I started to work out today...I only did one mile. Dont judge me. lol Its fall break and the kiddies are all over me. I just couldnt get into it. *shrugs* But I'ma keep at it.

So I now weigh about 158...I think I lost some water weight. My "aunt flo" just left and took all that bloating with her. So no real damage yet. :)

Hasta UNT

DIY chain jewelry!!!

Whats uppers Guys?

I'm popping in to share my latest explosion of brilliance! I came across a pair of upcycled earrings during a blog hop, and it all clicked. The earrings go great with a bracelet and necklace I've seen too. WHY NOT POST THEM AS A SET??  So here goes.

Source of creative madness!

Recycled genius this way!

Awesome tutorial here!

Here is the first jewelry set. :)  The pictures dont do justice.

Super unique


Alright. I really like the pieces in the second set, because they are more edgy. Either way, all of these pieces are so cute, easy, and cheap.  I personally follow Wobisobi, the creator of the upcycled earrings, and the choker. She has some really good pieces.  The others I've linked via Pinterest. But you should still look around their blogs, maybe snag a few other projects.

Let me know whatcha think!

Hasta UNT!
