Thursday Thoughts: Blogmas Day 8

 Happy Thursday!
For all my OG followers you know Thursday thought is when I open up  and tell how I am feeling
( I think I might bring this back in 2019)

Gearing up for 2019 and I have so many decisions to make ( my moving situations is one of them)
I plan on moving from my current place. Finally moving away this small town
But I have no idea where to go
Should I leave Illinois?
Should I move back near the area I grew up?
Should I move near my grandparents?
Should I go somewhere new and start fresh?
The more are more question to come with that
Do I go alone?
Do I move with my brother?
( but he maybe moving with his boyfriends is so that a no for me)
Should  I get a place with my brother and our friend?
I personally feel like everyone has a backup plan but me 
( My brother has his boyfriend , our friend has her family)
I have six months to get all these questions answered
Wish me luck 
I'll keep you posted

Vegas Baby! : Blogmas Day 7

I spent my 29th birthday in Las Vegas






It wasn't everything  I expected but that's what happens when you go 
on a trip with various personalities
I like to get up and go and explore the city 
when other rather lay in bed and explore the city at a different time
I fault no one but there was somethings that kinda rubbed me the wrong way
But my trip was amazing

Day one we got there so early our rooms weren't available yet so we had to leave our bags with the bellman
All I wanted to do it eat so we found a great place called Hash House A Go GO


The food was big and delicious after that all I wanted was booty rubs and nap ( all i got was the nap)
We stayed at Treasure Island great  place to stay for my first time to Las Vegas
The wonderful lady who checked us in treated each room to a bottle of champagne

 I had fun exploring the town and learning new things




I finally got to try In N Out



But the trip took a little turn day 2
The group split up and it kinda stayed that way the rest of the trip
I could tell you why but I don't even
Maybe  it was personalities
Maybe it was lack of interest of things
But I wasn't going to let that ruin my time
Thanks to an amazing promoter I was able to get into Tao nightclub and drink for free
When to clock struck 12 October 27th i was on the dance floor



I had an amazing brunch at the Mirage


I walked to strip

I even had time to relax by the pool



I toured Fremont
Birthday dinner at Maggiano's was delicious

 I even went to a Mob museum that was so cool
I even won a little money


Over all the trip was good minus some extra things but I'll keep those to myself for now
But next trip I will staying somewhere else and taking other travel buddies.
I will be going again
Next time on my terms

Christmas In Retail: Blogmas Day 5

Christmas time  shouldn't be stressful . 
It's a time to spend time with friends and family and give back . 
Working in retail I have seen some crazy things .
 I've seen nothing but anger, entitlement and very rude people . It seems like everyone is always in a hurry running around like the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland . 


On a daily basis I get customers yelling at me . Yes yelling at me because the store I work at is sold out .One day I had , had enough so I had to shine some light into this woman's life . I said " ma'am with all due respect it's just a toy. "Blank store" ( the place i work )  has no control on how many toys they get . The toy company makes them and send them to our company then the company has to split that up between their thousands of stores . So it's not our fault we don't have enough we get what we get and that's it . It's all about supply and demand. They make very few and watch people lose their minds over a stuffed animal and people are stupid enough to pay the ridiculous price for them ( Not judging just frustrated ) . But anyways Christmas isn't about the toys and gadgets we have under the tree it's about something priceless . When people realize that life would be so much better " .  The lady stared at me puzzled for a moment and totally agreed . We drive ourselves crazy and broke trying to buy some crazy gifts and most of the time people can't afford them or if they can they stress if it's sold out .

My tip for you this year is be nice to the associates , cashiers, stockmen and etc that work at the stores you shop at . They have no control what is in stock and when it will get there . 
Yelling and screaming like a 3 year old wont get you anywhere . 
We can't make the item you want magically appear out of thin air. 

Don't forget to spread  Christmas cheer and love one another give back instead of always taking .

Christmas Wishlist: Blogmas Day 3


I don't want much for Christmas this year
I love giving more than I receive 
I love seeing my friends and family  opening gifts I've made for them or carefully picked out for them

 I want to grow my beauty IG (MakeupDressDown) but I usually work on post late at night and 
the lighting is trash at that time 
So I think a ring light would help fix that problem

2. Starbucks Tumbler
Starbucks has come out with some gorgeous new tumblers 
I would love to add them to my collection
They fit my aesthetic perfectly

This would be my fourth year planning and second year using Erin Condren
I love using my planner it me organized and its a big scrapbook for myself

What's on your wishlist this year?

OLD/NEW CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS: BLOGMAS DAY 2

Growing up Christmas was a day for family
My mom, Brother, and I 
We would wake up open presents and make a delicious breakfast
Then my mom would instantly start making Christmas dinner
Christmas dinner was roast, lasagna, and a salad
The house smelt amazing 
Most of the time  it would be the three of us
Some years my aunt her two girls would come over to share dinner with us
But Christmas 2012 ( my mom's last Christmas) we had the whole family over
Lots of food, lots of laughs and lots of love
My mom made her usual meal 
My cousins and I gathered at the table to play many intense games of UNO
At one moment I remembered her looking at us all from the couch just smiling and happy
That's an image I would never forget 
Not saying a word just looking at all of us 
A moment I cherish in my heart

Christmas now is small with my brother and I 
We have welcomed a new family member our friend, Ireanna
We have kept some of the same traditions the it come the meal
Christmas is now a game day for us
We pulled out all our board and card games and play for hours
This is something I want to continue when I am married with children
Christmas is becoming special again to me 
I'm thankful for my mini tribe

What are some of your traditions?
