Currently: My Life

Hi guys! I don't really have a purpose for this blog other than I really need to rant, so be prepared it's about to be all over the place. This week was week 1 of spring term for school and I have 8 AM classes or volunteer work Monday - Thursday. As many of you know I'm not a morning person at all and usually I would nap after my 8 AM class but I've been getting through the whole day without napping and I'm so proud of myself. I love the days that I volunteer because working with kids honestly makes my whole day so great. They put such a smile on my face and they're just the cutest things. The weather here is finally getting better and the sunshine is amazing, I know I'm a lot happier when it's warmer out and I actually enjoy my walk to class and being outside more!

Anyways, I had a really great first week of classes! Yesterday I posted my blog on Why I Left Arizona and I cannot express how thankful I am for all the positive feedback and the amount of people that looked at my blog yesterday. It's honestly mind blowing to me. Unfortunately some bad things also happened yesterday. Last night I was at a really, really low point in my life which is hard to admit. The things I was thinking about were not okay and I'm so blessed to have woke up this morning with a positive attitude and mindset. All I know is I never want to feel that way again, or put myself in a situation where I allow myself to feel that way.

So I think it was yesterday, but Kylie Jenner announced that she had created lip glosses and released a video to promote them. We know that I love my matte liquid lipsticks and liners that she came out with (I have Candy K and Posie K), so of course I had to get my hands on her glosses. I decided to get the colors "So Cute" and "Like" which are the lightest and darkest of the three glosses she released! They're all nude shades which I really love and can't wait to get mine in the mail! They were only $15 which made me happy as well compared to her lip kits which are $30.

This week I also have been transitioning to eating only vegan products. A few times I slipped up and had things with milk products in them but for the most part I did really really good! I went grocery shopping at Fred Meyers and found that they had so many amazing vegan options. I picked up peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough, garlic aioli, ranch, vegan chicken strips, vegetables, bread, butter, soy milk, jam, quinoa, snicker doodle cookies, fruits and more that were ALL VEGAN. It was a little on the expensive side, but so worth it. It sucks that healthier foods such as fruits and vegetables are more expensive than the processed foods sold at the grocery stores.

I'm about to go cook some lunch, which is more like breakfast for me since I just woke up an hour ago. I'm thinking fruits, toast and jam, and orange juice. I'm going to watch last night's episode of Scandal and maybe catch up on Grey's Anatomy because I'm like four episodes behind. Also more than likely I need some online retail therapy.

As always, have a fantastic day and weekend my loves. I hope you're day is filled with happiness and love.

XOXO Melinda
