Eveyone should buy this cd either physically or digitally on iTunes.

Weekend wrap-up.

It was a slow weekend. I saw Nelly (the rapper) at the Wildflower Festival. I was so far back it was actually hard to see him and I’m short so there’s that.



On Saturday I went to the Byron Nelson Championship (Golf tournament) at the Four Seasons Las Colinas. It was fun yet exhausting. It was windy, humid, and hot.



Sunday was a casual day watched the Texas Rangers game had a sandwich and then ate fruit all day.



Can you say exciting weekend? Ha!
No mani Monday today because I messed up a nail while trying to snap a photo. Tomorrow I’ll post a picture. :)



Until next time
XOXO

It's Pinterest Wednesday!


In today’s i installment of Pinterest Wednesday, I present to you, wedding ideas! No, I am not getting married or engaged, but let’s admit it, everyone on Pinterest plans their wedding even though they are single! 


Logging on to my page Pinterest account today, users that I follow have for some reason filled it with wedding stuff. So here are some cute ideas that I loved and added to my Pinterest Board: Dream Wedding. What a surprise! Ha!





I love the country feel. How awesome would it be to have a wedding reception in a place like the picture above?

Thursday Happenings & Throw Back Thursday (Instagram)

Hi readers!


After reading through Facebook statuses and Twitter tweets, (redundant, I know, but how else do you describe twitter updates?) it is safe to say everyone is out for the summer or graduating! That only means it’s time to celebrate and what everyone is calls “Thirsty Thursday.”


Not this girl! I will be sitting at home watching a Rangers Double Header, The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle. All by tweeting my reaction to the games and scenes ( follow me on Twitter: @iamfelipa ).


Also, many might not know but today is actually Mother’s Day in Mexico! (culture alert!). Having a Mexican mother, who happens to also to be a U.S. Citizen, expects for my sister and I to celebrate both. Fair or foul? My sister and I say foul, it gets expensive y’all! Regardless, we celebrate today and Sunday, which will also include Saturday. I’m taking my mom to the Rangers game! She loves them, especially Josh Hamilton. I will post photo’s of that day in a future post.


Thursday Throw Back is a big deal on instagram, and in honor of Mother’s Day weekend, here is a photo of my mother and me. I think I was 4?



What are y’alls Summer plans? Mother’s Day plans?


Until next time,


It's Pinterest Wednesday!


In today’s installment of Pinterest Wednesday!,  I came across some at-home no-equipment fitness posts! How convient for people like me, that no longer have access to their college gyms during the summer (I wished gyms were more affordable, working on student budget here!) to get fit. Follow me on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/iamfelipa/

What have you found on Pinterest lately?


EveryDay I’m tumblrING.


Love this!

Internet window shopping anyone?

I have a bad habit of browsing the internet for shoes, clothes, and jewelry when I’m bored. This usually leads me to make a list of potential items I can buy first (most affordable), then I work down the list until I get to the more higher end items. 


Here are a few of my new discoveries that I happened to find today. 


From Nordstrom:



Summer Sandals




Color Satchels








From: Pop of Chic


Rings & Bracelets


CRAWFORD METAL CHAIN BRAID BRACELET MATTED SILVER








There you have it! These things have made it on to my list of want all because I virtually window shop while I’m bored. 


Oh, I’m also officially on summer break! Not summer yet, but you get what I mean. Looking forward to some downtime tomorrow, then Thursday I have an interview early in the morning! 


Also, I found a new blog that today on tumblr. It’s called What I Wore by Jessica Quirk! Love it! It’s a fashion blog and she has such amazing posts about what SHE wears. Also, look at the theme she uses! LOVE IT! I’m a bit of graphic design/typography geek. This “geek list” is starting to grow! Ha! 

Until next time, 

It's Mani Monday!


Here’s my first installment of Mani Monday (manicure)! If you happen to follow me on instagram, you will notice that I take a lot of pictures of my nails. I am proud owner of over 60 nail polishes. I’m what you call a nail polish hoarder, but enough of that, let’s get on with this posting. Today I decided that I would go for a neutral color and just add a little sparkle. (Updated: I changed it to nice mint color, I couldn’t resist using a new nail polish I had forgotten I bought early last week.)


For the Neutral color I used a taupe looking color which Revlon calls “Gray Suede”, it has no gray tint to the color, go figure. I also used a clear base coat, which also can be used as a clear top coat which I used. I also used a white nail color by Wet and Wild, over the base coat and before the neutral color to enhance the very bland color. Lastly, I added a little shimmer to the tips by adding silver glitter nail polish by Sinful Nail Polish. 




FTR:I bought all these products myself.


Have a happy Monday, unless you have a case of the Mondays, then I can’t really help you there. I take my last 2 finals of the semester tomorrow and an interview on Thursday morning! Exciting times!


It's Pinterest Wednesday!

May is here! with a healthy recipe

Happy first of the month to all my readers! What a great way to start the month then by working out! Went to the gym for 2 hours and had a nice session on the treadmill and elliptical, which happen to be my favorite machines. 


School is officially out for the summer in just 1 week! Well, I have one more regular/review class day this week, then on Tuesday I have my only 2 finals. I will then look into finding a job or a paying internship (these are rare). Life of an undergrad.


I love a blog called Gina’s Skinny Recipes and came across a recipe that resembles my grandmother’s on the go oatmeal shake recipe! I tried it yesterday and is basically tastes the same as my grandmothers.


Here is the recipe:
