7:33 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

Hey guys, its almost 8PM on New Years Eve and I decided to write a post to thank 2012! It's been a great year. With all ups and down's its still has been a good year for me!
I am very thankful for the things I've learned throughout the whole year. I am thankful for the people I've met and the people I let go. I am glad for the things i was able to purchase and throw away! Thank You 2012 for being a happy and healthy year! Life is full of surprises good and bad, I sure did have both of it. I wont complain about the not so good things that had happen to me, because they all though me a valuable lessons! Lessons that I've leaned from and will keep in mind! 

I hope all of you are having a great New Years Eve, I am celebrating it with my blood family. Grandmother cooked up a fiesta, I cant wait to taste it all! My cousin also did a great job on two traditional salads that are amazing! I am waiting to be stuffed and go to bed after welcoming a new year!

Below are the candles I picked up, since I have so many lotions I passed on the lotions and body mists this year! 


They look so cute! I had to get few candles to try! SO many people on youtube, are raving about these candles. I had to take a stand and be the judge to decide on my own.

I am not sure is this  Marshmallow one is for fall or winter, but is a mini one and it smells so delicious, I think its more Fall like. I will save it for next Fall.

I know Fall is over, but for $10 bucks I had to get one for next fall.

I hope all of you loves had a Very Merry Christmas. Mine was calm and small. As I get older I realize that its not about the shopping madness or the presents, it's about the love and happiness you have in your life. I realize that the calmer the gathering is the better! You can take your time and talk with your family and not leave people out because you don't have time to get to everyone! But hey, if its your type of part then let it be, what you makes you happy that's the main point of this holiday or any other holiday!

(P.S. Photobucket is not loading! This post is taking me almost an hour to do!!! AGHHHHH)




Merry Christmas-2012

Christmas Eve

10:40 AM Katherine H 0 Comments


It came, in few hours it will be Christmas Eve. I am not doing anything tonight, but tomorrow night we will have a little gathering at my grandmas house and will open presents. The only person that I didn't get the present for is my mom, I know she should have been first. But she is hard to shop for. I got her a personalize Christmas Card that I know she will love, but I need to get my behind to Michael s and get a glass bowl and clear beats, she loves my brush holder she always makes a comment when she comes over and sees my brush holder. 


Remember what this Holiday is truly about! 
Presents are just small part of it! The love and time that you spend 
with your loved ones is the most important thing!

11:33 AM Katherine H 2 Comments

Photobucket     I bet a lot of you heard of this new company called Influenster. It send people FREE stuff to try in exchange for review! Oh Boy, I though that it was a lie. But nooooo, its a legit thing! You can try for yourself, just click HERE and sign up. Right away you can start participating in reviews and surveys.
 About a month ago, i got a chance to recieve the "College VoxBox 2012" and what I got was awersome.
I didn't like every item, but its great to be able to try something for free and if you don't like it then its all good, because you didn't pay for it. It's also good for bloggers and Youtubers to try these kind of products since we do reviews and able to share our opinion with others! 


Impress Nails- Was not able to use them because they didnt fit my nail bed. I gave them to my friend, she said she liked them. They lasted her 4 days.
Energy Sheets- It's okay, I didnt liek that they stick to my toung, but I liked the fact they have 8 vitamins. Easy to put in your purse.
RSVP Pen- OMG I was just going to purchase this pen, because its trully my favorite pen in the whole wide world! It writes so smooth and so fine! I went to Staples and purchased more colors!
NYC Glitter Pencil- Have not tried yet, will try probably for New Years.
Tropical Candy- Aghh, not a huge fan, they are tooo hard, but good to put in your mouth when you have nothing. 


Thank you so much Influenster for giving me the opportunity to try these products!!!

Its 10:16AM and as I sip on my last drops of coffee, I decided to share with you few pictures of my little monkey. I've been wanting to try to shoot Keyla with Christmas lights second year in a row. Last year i forgot, this year I reminded myself when I was cleaning out my computer. I think they came out so cute. She wasn't really into it, but she was glad when it was over and she had her treat!



How To,

How To: Store and Orgazine Curling Irons and Flat Irons

9:58 AM Katherine H 1 Comments

Good Morning Readers,

It's sunny and cool in NYC. I am trying to get every bits of sun before two storms hit NYC. 

I dont know about you but I love curling irons and flat irons. I organize everything and anything, but flat irons and curling irons its a challenge for me.. I fave few of them different sizes. Few months ago I came around a solution to the challenge. I got these cute holders for them. They are not stored away for easy access and mess and tangle free. They were expensive, but it is worth it in a long run. 

I got them as a whole sale, so I was able to get a good deal. I though it would be great to share with you guys the awesome organizational tip when it comes to hard things to organize like these. 

If you want to get one of your own, email me and I will send you all the info and the price. 





Praying For Sandy Hook Elementary School Family

9:45 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

I can't!

I can't and don't even want to imagine what happened in elementary school in CT. I just cant wrap my head around it. How can someone harm someone like that, innocent children for that matter. It's been a very sad day for me, I feel for everyone that lost their loved one in the shooting! My prayers go out to those family members and friends. 

More in details what happened....

The families of victims grieve near Sandy Hook Elementary School, where a gunman opened fire on school children and staff in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012. A heavily armed gunman opened fire on school children and staff at a Connecticut elementary school on Friday, killing at least 26 people, including 20 children.....(read more on

What is wrong with people?  If you are not happy with your life, why make hundreds of others suffer? Get help, seek counseling, don't take it out on innocent people.


 Please, take a moment and thank God for what you have. Hug and kiss the people you love! Cherish each moment you with them and be grateful for everything!



HOW TO: Christmas Shopping While Saving Time and Money

10:56 AM Katherine H 1 Comments

I love Christmas, if you didn't notice that from my posts. 

Christmas is fun, but it can also be very stressful. All those Christmas cards and gifts you have to buy and mail. I feel all of you on that one, but I created a solution for that. I remember couple of years ago I decided to go Black Friday shopping for Christmas Gifts, oh man that was the worst thing I ever decided to do. I was so pissed and hungry, I didn't leave I ran away. NEVER AGAIN. The TIPS below will not only make your life easy it will make your wallet thank you later!



*Shop all year round, chances are you will get the best deals and the most useful things.
*Shop off season, after Christmas, winter, spring, summer, fall. Get it?
*Shop Semi-Annual Sale, usually it happens twice a year, check stores like Victoria's Secret, Bed and Body Works...etc.
*Buy greedings card in adnvance and buy at dollar store, they are cheap and usually the best looking ones. I find the best cards at the dollar store all the time.
*Set aside money to buy gifts. If you on a budget and cant spend money at ones, set aside money and buy though the year.
*Write out a list of eceryones name and check box. Another thing I do is I brainstorm what they need or hear them say what they want and need. I have my list all year round. Crazy ha? nope, SMART
*Shop on full stomach and bring your own water and luch. YOU NEED TO STAY HIDRATED 
*Keep all recepts for the next 3 months
*Ask about Holiday store return policy
*DONT BUY JUNK- buy something small and usefull for someone not a junk that they will re-gift or donate or throw away
*Write out in your cards, write your feelings out, the person will appriciate it
*Buy gift wrapping paper after Christmas, try Target or Wallmart, they are dirt cheap. Especailly they will be torn apart and in the garbage. 
*Compare prices online
*Shop through Ebates. All those % will add up and in 3 months you will be a nice big check of refund.

Motivation: Re-evaluate your thoughts

10:23 AM Katherine H 0 Comments

I LOVE this Quote!


It seems easy to understand and there is no need to think about it. Well, I don't agree with that. I took few minutes and thought about this quote deeper. It made me realize that everyone that I had met and will meet have something to teach me about happiness, love, success, and LIFE in general. Now, the teachings wont be all positive, negative experiences with people also teach us a HUGE amount of things. 

Being a positive person I tend to shut the negativity down, but it keeps cumming back. Its important to re-evaluate that negative experience and learn from it. This will protect your future, you will be less likely to face that negative experience again.

Don't stress about people who left you, think of all the good things you had, all the bad things you will learn from, and all the great things you will have not having that person in your life. Stressing over that person is not worth it. 


Take every experience you have and make the best of it, its hard but you can do it. Its for your own good!

 I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of the year!!!

After Thanksgiving I turn on my Christmas music and it bring such joy to my heart. I know I sound like a dork, but those are the things in life that count the most. I listen to Christmas music while cooking, cleaning, getting ready and such. 

I love Christmas and everything that it brings. I love the process of decorating and lit up Christmas tree. I am haven't put up the Christmas tree yet and its December 7th, I know I know. Some things are just out of my hand. If it was up to me, then my Christmas Tree would be up next day after Thanksgiving. 

Any who, Below I shared with you guys my favorite Christmas Music Play List. Notice how I have the playlist in a shape of Christmas tree, it was so not intended. Each music page is over 1hr long, so there is about 5 hours if not more of Christmas music there, enjoy it all!

HAPPY DECEMBER (Christmas is just 25 days away.)



Lets Talk Tea: Oolong Tea and Yogi Skin Detox

9:34 PM Katherine H 0 Comments


I love tea, especially during winter time. Few months ago, I did a mini-research on the best teas for my body. Makes sense right? Since I drink it daily, why not drink tea that is actually very good for your body! Two teas that had the best and most benefits in Oolong Tea and Yogi Skin Detox Tea. 

Oolong Tea:
  •  The Chinese have long believed that oolong tea is beneficial in reducing and maintaining weight. A Chinese study, in 1998, of 102 females showed that continuous consumption of oolong tea for six weeks resulted in a reduction of body weight. This study, along with the question of other compounds contributing to tea's weight loss benefits, spurred further research.
  • According to scientific experiments, patients diagnosed with eczema skin disorder can benefit from drinking 3 cups of oolong tea 3 times in a day. 
  •   In a detailed study conducted at the Osaka Institute for Health Care Science, in Japan, the experimental mice that were ingested with oolong tea showed a remarkable improvement in stress levels by more than 10 to 18 %. The natural polyphenols in the oolong tea is said to be the main stress buster.
Yogi Skin Detox Tea:
  • Here's to a Healthy Glow! Our skin reflects our diet and lifestyle choices: it’s the mirror to internal health. It’s just as essential to cleanse from the inside; reducing internal impurities can help to promote clearer, glowing skin. Yogi Skin DeTox was purposefully formulated to support a healthy skin care regimen.
  •  Fragrant Rose Petal and Hibiscus, used in Ayurveda to cool and soothe the skin, entice the senses with a fresh, floral scent. We then add Organic Green Tea that supplies antioxidants to promote a sense of rejuvenation while Burdock and Yellow Dock-traditionally used to support the liver-combine with Red Clover to promote cleansing. Enjoy lightly sweet and floral Skin DeTox throughout the day to support your healthy glow
I got both of the teas at Whole Foods, you can check your local super market, they might have it as well under different brand. 


Gift Ideas,


8:00 AM Katherine H 0 Comments

Christmas as of today is 29 days away! This brings me to tell you that......

I love giving, I usually hit on the nail when I give gifts to others. Sometimes I get what I want or need, other times (let me be honest) I recycle it. In most cases I give it away to others or donate it. For the past few years I have been telling people to get me gift cards to my favorite stores, it works wonders for me. I get what I want and both the giver me ME the taker are happy!

If you are struggling with gift giving, find out what store that person most shops in (even if it's Walmart, who would not want a FREE $$$ to spend at Walmart or Tar-jey?) I most sure would. 

Tomorrow, I am placing two orders for mom and dad online. Two things I know they will use 

MOM- SIGMA BRUSH SET ROLL (She been wanting a good brush set, I wanted to get her MAC brush collection, but boy is it expensive!!!)  
DAD-UNDERWATER CAMERA (Boyyy, he will be super happy. He is a picture taking freak like me)

Since I got older my Christmas Gift List shortened, since I am not close to many people I was close before and I can now put more thought and $$$ into the gifts that I will give the ones that are close to me.



Fall Is Almost OVER

6:09 PM Katherine H 1 Comments

I love fall, for all its colors and the cool weather that it brings. I love going outside and snapping pictures, below you will see the two favorite monkey faces in a world. Its hard taking pictures of the dogs since they dodnt sit still for a second. This is a great practice for me (for other starting photographers) working with different manual settings to get that amazing shot!







Working on it.....Changing&Fixing

11:48 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

I hope all of you have a great THANKSGIVING! I was over my dads sisters house, and we had a nice peaceful lunch/dinner (3PM). I was able to take my dogs with me, I was sooooo HAPPY (since I haven't seen Keyla for a week. She has been staying at my moms, because I don't like the air quality after Storm Sandy). 

I miss blogging, so I needed something to boost my wanting-ness to post more. Soooo, I re did the whole blog layout. By myself (Blogger help), and I am pleased thus far. I though the other layoung was too busy, I want something clean and simple. 

I am super excited for the upcoming Holidays. I just love this time of the year!!! 

Anyway, below some pictures from my THANKSGIVING....
