My Poor Baby.....

I have two black labs... they are my babies. Ava, we got from a breeder. She is a pure bred dog and she is gorgeous. She has a thing for men- she is just a little whore we say because whenever a man walks into a room she has to go up to him immediately and stays near him until a new man comes in.

Everyone loves Ava.

We also have another lab... Leroy John. Leroy we got from Labs for Rescue. He is the tramp dog... my baby. We call them Lady & The Tramp all the time since he really does look like a little junk yard dog. He is so cute though.. he's my little man.

Well, the reasoning for the post is really for me to just vent and let all this out because I am somewhat of a mess right now. Leroy has seizures. The last one he had was January. It wasn't a horrible one thank god.

Today Leroy just had two horrible seizures about 10 minutes apart. Each one lasting at least for 8-12 minutes. I am crying hysterically. I can't help it. I have never seen the seizures lasting this long. We are going to see how much the medication is going to cost for him--- but honestly, I don't know how we're going to afford it. This is just one big nightmare.

Thank God my mother was home when this happened. If I was alone in the house, I don't know what I would have done. The entire time I was just crying because I felt so bad for him. We had to move all of our furniture around during it because he was just throwing himself all over the place. My poor little man.

I felt bad for Ava too... she cried the whole time trying to get to Leroy. We had to keep pushing her back so she wouldn't get in his way- she just wanted to help him. I hope we don't have to give him up... I don't know how either of them would be without the other one. But I don't know if my mother and myself can handle another seizure like this from him. It isn't fair to him to have owners who have no idea what to do in a situation like this. Maybe we could talk to Labs for Rescue and see if they would help us pay for the meds? Ah, I don't know. It's times like this where I wish we were rich... not have to worry about not being able to afford medicine for a part of our family. Because HE IS a part of our family.

Look how cute my babies are.....


Ava on the left, Leroy on the right
When we first got Leroy... he was so scronny





I love my babies.
I hope Leroy is going to be okay... Thanks for listening everyone. Just writing about this is making me feel a little better.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Good Luck!!!

Short and Sweet!

Today is a day I am spending with my family so this is going to be an extremely short post! I love holidays. I really do. I just like relaxing with my family, doing nothing all day except eating and hanging out. Don't you just love those days?

People may say I do that everyday since I am unemployed and what not ha ha, but I really am superbusy during the days. It's nice to get time where everyone can be together and just relax. It's sweet. Today we are having a mini cookout- even though its downpouring outside and not the best weather. Oh, well. Still should be a good time.

Yesterday I had 3 places to go, all starting around the same time. Busy busy busy! But it was nice. I ended up drinking and eating way too much, but holiday's are special so I am fine with all of that. I got to drink yummy pina coladas! SWEEET. What is your favorite think to do on holidays??????


Hope you all have a fantastic, restful, special day! Eat and Drink and Be Merry! :)

Fabulous Review: Recycled Grace Shirt!

Happy Weekend!

I have had the amazing opportunity to work with Grace, of Recycled Grace. Grace makes fabulous clothing from recycled materials and garmets.

"In an effort to reuse and recycle, all items are one-of-a-kind designs and made with recycled/salvaged/repurposed materials and garments. Everything I sell is recycled/repurposed. I make clothes, accessories, furniture, jewelry, home d├ęcor, housewares, etc – and am always thinking of what to try next, based on the latest raw materials I’ve scored. :)

Before I throw anything away, I take a good, hard look at it to decide if it can be made into something else first – it’s a curse, really. :) Because, for example, I have an ever increasing stack of thick, plastic dog and cat food bags waiting to be made into waterproof bags of some sort. I cannot make myself put them in the trash."

Personally, I wish I could have that gift! Her items are gorgeous and what is it that they say... another person's trash is someone else's treasure! Well, her items are definitely a treasure!

I was lucky enough to review one of her shirts. Look how freakin adorable this is... totally my style.


Even though Grace and I have never met- she pegged me right on the nose with this shirt. I absolutely LOVE anything lace and kiss marks? Hello- all me.

This shirt is of great quality- and it does stretch out to fit a bigger person. Now- This shirt is a size small- which is why it is on the manequin in the picture- Even though it does stretch out, I am a pretty thick woman. It fits- but there is no way in hell I'm taking a picture of myself to show you lol. But don't worry- I plan on fitting in it (nicely) by the end of the summer. So you'll be able to see me lookin all kinds of fine in it then :)

A little bit of info about this particular piece? Here we go..




"Upcycled, recycled racerback tee. I added new crocheted straps and stretchy lace down the front. This is another of my daughter's 'cast-offs' that she wants back after I upcycled it. :)

One-of-a-kind. No more available in this fabric.

Beautiful, flattering neckline in front and back and feminine crocheted lace straps.

Racer back is very flattering. Looks great over another shirt or by itself.

Machine wash and dry - gently cycle or hang to dry.

This fabric is VERY stretchy, so will fit many size bodies. It measures 23" from back of neck down to bottom of shirt. It measures 14" across, just under the arms, laying flat. The tag still says "small", but it is very stretchy. Mannequin is a size 8-10.

In a effort to reuse and recycle, all items are one-of-a-kind designs and made with recycled/reclaimed/repurposed materials and garments. Everything I sell is recycled/repurposed.

Allergy info: cats and dogs helped make all products"
( $35 on Etsy)


We all know I love anything unique. One of my favorite things to say to someone is "why do you want something a million other people have?". Unique makes it special. Recycled Grace definitely is unique!

A couple more adorable items from her shop? Of course!



Well, you definitely will be seeing more of Recycled Grace here on this blog. Want to know why? I know you do! SHE IS PARTICIPATING IN A GIVEAWAY! Yes folks, one of you fabulous readers may win one of her items in the........ I Love My Daddy Giveaway Event going on from June 15-June19th! But of course, because I love surprises- I won't give you any hints about what item she is giving away. I guess you will just have to come back on June 15th and see for yourself!

If you want to get a head start on the entries- feel free to Heart her Etsy Shop and Like her facebook! Feel free to tell her Jewels for Hope sent you- she's a sweetie.

Happy Saturday!

Who doesn't love free stuff?




It's Love at First Sight

Happy Thursday Everyone! I hope your day is going fantasticly right now :)

Well, we all know how much I love getting a good deal right? I found this website that has the most AMAZING stuff. It's called Become. I can't get over it. I am in love. I found these adorable Leopard Print Pumps... my god- Jerseylicious here I come! I swear- If I was not unemployed, I would get half the shoes on this page. I'm salvating just thinking about them!

I have a thing for shoes, in case you couldn't tell. I really have a problem. The fiance thinks I'm crazy and should never buy another single pair of shoes again because I have way too many now. There. Is. No. Such. Thing. He doesn't get it. I need certain items- they are nessecities... like rain boots! How can he get mad at me, for buying a pair of those?! But he does. haha Even when I had a job he got mad at me for buying shoes.

Men.

Don't Understand.

All I know is that I love shoes. All Shoes. Another great pair I found on this site? The Ciao Bella Boots. The have these brown camel boots. *gush* Maybe I'll have the Fiance get me a pair of shoes. You never know??? haha

I Love Freelancing.

I told you all yesterday that I had a freelance job. Well, I love it.

I met with the woman yesterday to show her some of the stuff I worked on and see where we wanted to go from there. Well, she is awesome and liked what I started with and put me in a good direction to move forward. Also, SHE PAID ME.

Yes, it is not going to pay even one of my bills for a month- but it is a hell-of-a lot better then nothing. And, she said she would want to work with me on more occasions after this is done. Hell. Yes.

I still have no idea how I'm going to pay for my bills next month- but I'll figure something out. I always do. I just feel bad about being unemployed still. My sister hates the fact that I am- because she is a very hard worker and doesn't get how I can't get a job. She finds it ridiculous and says "I sit at home and do nothing all day". Little does she know I actually do more work now that I am unemployed that when I was actually at a job getting a pay check.

Even though I am currently not making an income- all I do is work. I sit at the computer all day long finding different companies to send press kits out to- or send emails to about Jewels for Hope. Sometimes I think I start seeing things from staring at this screen all day long hahaha.

All we need is for one big celeb to get our jewelry. Or one major magazine. It is tough though... the only way for this to really work is to " know someone who know's someone". And unfortunately, I don't know many people hahaha.

But I am determined. I always believe that good things happen to good people. You get back what you put out into the world. I know I'm not a saint or anything, but I really do put out "goodness" into the world. I feel it will come back to me eventually.

So- if any of you know someone who knows someone who could help me get my sister from thinking I do nothing all day Jewels for Hope out there- Please, don't hesistate to contact me ha ha. I am SO not one of those people who turns down help.

Zone Diet- Week 2 Completed!

So, I have been on the Zone Diet for 2 weeks now. To say it is tougher then I thought would be an understatement lol. I realized the food is getting a bit "heavy" for me. All of the breads are just a lot to handle... so I have been putting my own little spin on the meals. Still healthy- just eating more of the fruits and veggies and only half of the meals they provide. But still a good combination I think.

I think everyone trying to loose weight- whether you are on your own diet or on one that gets sent to you- you have to find your own right combination. It is different for everyone- so even if you do buy prepackaged food to be sent to you- you need to know how much extras you need to keep you going through the day.

I am proud to say that I think I found the right balance. Or at least, my numbers are showing it for now hahaha. Here are the stats....

Starting Weight- May 13th: 203.5
Week One- May 18th: 199.5
Week Two- May 25th: 196.5

Yep- I lost 3lbs this week. Not to shabby if I say so myself. Since I started actually trying to loose weight- I am now down 10.5 lbs. DOUBLE. DIGITS. BABY.

Whenever I have tried to loose weight- for any reason- with all different types of diets- the MOST I have ever lost (no matter what the time frame) has been 7lbs. Once I would hit 7 my body would say "oh, that's it for now...... even if you look at a piece of chocolate I'm making you gain weight". So the fact that I actually passed that mark scares me a little makes me happy.

I have about 2 months until I go on vacation and I would love to be able to loose 20lbs in that time. I think that's doable, right? That is between 2-3 lbs a week. Which when you think of it that way, makes it seem way easier.

Where am I going on vacation you ask? Well.... I am actually going on TWO vacations. Yes- I know that is crazy especially since I am still unemployed and have absolutely no money to go on these vacations.... Oh Well.

I am going to Ocean City, Maryland for a week starting July31st. I am SO EXCITED about this trip actually because my family hasn't been away in a couple of years because of people being sick (me included). This year my fiance is coming with us- SHOULD BE INTERESTING!

The 2nd vacation is a dream vacation. I will give you tons more details on this at another time- but I won this during Blogmania from Brandi @ Life With 5 Monkies (go visit and say hi! She is so sweet!!!).

I won her amazing package which included a 1 week's stay at a Global Resort Home in Florida. So my fiance and I will be driving from Maryland to Florida the week after Ocean City. Staying in Florida for a week- seeing one of my BEST FRIENDS who moved there a couple of years ago- and also having my bestie Paul come down to spend the week with us too! How fun! I can't wait to go. Don't worry- I'll be writing more and more about this fun vacation- so you will get allll the details <3


Until then tho... MY GIVEAWAYS ARE ENDING SOON!!! Go Enter!

Freelance Work, Here I Come!

We all know I am unemployed still. I am selling off my dearly beloved accessories and clothes I know I won't be wearing anytime soon- We know I need cash.

I GOT SOME FREELANCE WORK!
*PARTY TIME!*

this restauant is amazing- has nothing to do with this post but when I think of "party" I think of this place in NYC.


I am super excited about this. My mother's friend knew someone who just recently purchased a deli. They want a brand new Menu/Labels/Business Cards. They don't want to spend an arm and a leg to get a graphic designer or a "major company" to do this for her. So I had a meeting with her on Friday and she decided to go with me to do this work! YES.  **jumps up and does a happy dance***

Any sort of income really makes me happy ha ha. And the woman who owns the deli is SO. FREAKING. SWEET. I don't feel nervous around her at all- which is amazing because I usually get very tongue tied when talking work with new people.

I am working on the menu as we speak and think it is coming along beautifully! She wants it to be really rustic Italian looking. Which is right up my alley because I love that look. And I definitely know the "Italian look" ha ha

This is the perfect opportunity for me. This will give me a great starting point to possibly see if I can get more work like this. I mean, since I can't find a "corporate" job or even a retail job anywhere right now- at least this might be able to cover my bills for a month or so if I get enough jobs out of it? I like being my own boss anyway lol Hell, who doesn't?

It's a brand new day for me and I feel amazing about it. I love new challeneges- and at least this will keep me busy for a couple days ha ha.

Once I actually submit a design or something to her and she likes it and goes forward with it, I'll give you all some great pictures of it :)

A Sweet Smelling Surprise!

I love cute soaps. I do. I know I have mentioned it before- numerous times actually- because I love anything new and interesting- and if it smells nice? EVEN BETTA!

Well, one of my amazing "I Love My Mommy" sponsors from the Blog Hop/Giveaway event just sent me some soaps to say thank you! Can you believe it? I thought that was the sweetest thing! Want to know what I got?

Well, Sprezzatura BBC is the amazing sponsor who sent me these great soaps. Sprezzatura has tons of fun soaps- along with some really classy soaps in my opinion. Yes, I am calling soap classy-  but it just has the feel to it! I have never really come across a classy soap- but Sprezzatura hits it right on the button!

When I opened the package - this box was so neatly placed. It was surrounded by packing peanuts to ensure no mess/breakage!





Aren't they just gorgeous? I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the white flower soap. It looks like so much detail has gone into it!

Sprezzatura sent me the Hearts and Rose Soap Set along with some extras thrown in there. Feel free to browse around through their website to see what other great items they have!

I'm Famous.

Today is the day everyone! I woke up like a kid on Christmas morning... so strange, I know- but this is a big thing for me.

Jewels for Hope made it into their first big publication today! The New Haven Register published the interview about us!!! We bought 7 newspapers this morning. Is that weird? ha ha. Well, I don't care if it is a bit odd- we are famous!



Don't we look so pretty? I think so! Me and my amazing mother <3

I know you all want to view the whole article, right? You can do so by Clicking Here!

You'll be able to see a video of us there also! So embarrassing, but oh well! If it helps get Jewels for Hope out there- then I am ALL for it!

I am just still in shock over this. I can't believe we did it. We actually got into a publication. I know I have been saying this over and over again- but this is big! I must have emailed over 100 newspapers/magazines/publications in which 98% of them didn't respond and the tiny 2% that did said sorry but no thanks. Sandi Shelton was the only one who really responded and wanted to write this article. Thank you SO MUCH Sandi!

Another person I should really say thanks to is Jennie Wu! Jennie participated in the I Love My Mommy giveaway/blog hop. She makes adorable little clutches and handbags (so cute! go look!). Jennie actually got interviewed by Sandi first. Jennie lives in California- I live 5 minutes away from New Haven. When I saw Jennie got interviewed I emailed her immediately asking how she did it lol. Don't worry- It wasn't a "hate" email or anything like that ha ha. I am so happy Jennie got acknowledged for her work because it is truly amazing! I just wanted her secret about getting published ha ha

Jennie gave me Sandi's info and it was all smooth sailing from there. So thank you both, Sandi and Jennie. I really can't say thank you enough!

Now I am off to go sit and stare at the newspaper article for an hour or two. hahahaha- I kid. Well, kind of.

Have a fantastic day everyone!

Stuff I'm Selling on Ebay!

Today I am a mess ha ha. Last night we had a bit of an issue and I had to go to my cousin's house and hang out there for a bit. So today I am exhausted. I was expecting a nice relaxing night in with the fiance since he didn't have to work this morning- but, shit happens. So today I don't have much to write about since ALLL I have done today is make some new cards ha ha. Not a very productive day, but- everyone has one of those days, right? RIGHT!

So... since I haven't done anything really today worth discussing- I'm showing you some great items I have listed on ebay right now ha ha. I will be posting more and more over the next couple of days- because yes, I need money and I am now selling off my stuff ha ha. Gotta pay the bills some how, right?

Jewels for Hope Video is up on The New Haven Register Website!

Hi Everyone! Jewels for Hope is on the New Haven Register's website! AH!!!!!

Click Here and then Scroll down through the videos- We were posted on May 20th and our little picture is a necklace on a bright red background!

OMG! SO EXCITING

A little bit of this, a little bit of that!

Yesterday went so well! In case any of you didn't read yesterday's post... I had the chance to get some cash. And since I am still unemployed- I really need the money ha ha. I did a focus group yesterday which was AMAZING. It was my first time doing anything like that. I did not screw it up! I sat there for 4 hours and made $115. Pretty freaking sweet in my opinion! I read my kindle the whole time. Amazzzinnngg.

Then, after my focus group- I had a meeting with a deli in town to redesign her menus and labels for her shop. I was thrilled! I am working on some ideas over the weekend and then contacting her back on Monday. Any little bit of money really counts right now, so I am so excited to have this opportunity!

I am going to be a busy bee this weekend trying to figure out what the hell to do for this woman though ha ha. I have so many ideas floating around in my head, I need to organize everything and try and focus on one thing. Ah. I love keeping busy so this is very good.

Along with this amazing opportunity? IT IS BEAUTIFUL RIGHT NOW!!!!! I love nice days out- the sun is shining, it isn't too hot, and it isn't raining! What could be better than that? Hopefully I'll get some time in the sun today to relax a bit. Tonight the fiance is taking me out to dinner to celebrate being interviewed by the New Haven Register! IT COMES OUT ON MONDAY, YA KNOW!!!!! Once I get the article you know I will be posting it on here. I am like a little kid- doing a countdown until it is published. But it isn't every day you get interviewed, so I have a right to be happy/nervous/excited about it :)

Now that I talked your ears off about all my randomness going on lately, I will let you all go. Hopefully it is as nice out where you are - like it is here in CT. Sunshine makes me happy <3

While you are still here though- don't forget to Enter some AMAZINGLY LOW ENTRY GIVEAWAYS!!!!!!!!!!

Wish Me Luck!

I am so excited- I AM GETTING SOME MONEY, HONEY!!! Hahaha. It is definitely not much, but anything is better then nothing, right? I'm participating in a focus group today for 5 HOURS! I'm getting $115. I soo need this lol. I can't wait... I just hope I don't screw it up. I have never done anything like this before- I don't want to screw up my chances of getting some kind of money. Especially seeing as how I ran through all of my savings as of last month and had to borrow money from my sister & fiance to pay my bills lol So really...Wish me luck please! haha

Another big thing that's going on today? Well, I am having a consultation with someone to see if they want me to make some flyers/brochures/business cards/etc for their new shop. I am nervous. I have never done anything like this other then for my mother's and father's company lol. But it would be great if this woman decides to work with me- so again- I could get some extra income. Since I have been applying to jobs for about 3 hours every day- I don't know where else to turn at this point.

So today is a big day. Which also means I won't have time to write any extra posts today... I know you all will miss me terribly ha ha. But this is a good thing! A sweet 5 hour focus group and a consultation for a job. WOO HOO. Let's hope I don't stick my foot in my mouth at either time ha ha. I always have to work on that. I am one of those people that when I get nervous- I tend to over talk. I just babble constantly and can't really control what's coming out of my mouth. Which is also another reason as to why I'm nervous about the New Haven Register Video coming out hahaha. Oh, should be interesting all right!

I must run now. Since I am writing this post the night before the big day- I should get to sleep. I can't be all tired and groggy while discussing the product within the focus group. I need to be on my game.


Hope you all have a fabulous day!
Wish me some........

All you haveta do is CLICK HERE and then vote "Yes, Definitely". Easy Peasy!

To all of you who do not know what Heartsy is... here we go.

Heartsy is a great website that gives you big discounts on all handmade items! Amazing right? They just started in February of this year and are getting tons of great traffic to their site. The idea is- you buy a voucher to a specific site for AT LEAST 50% discount to their website! Um, awesome? I love getting items for AT LEAST half off!

Want to join? If you click my link HERE, once you sign up you get a $5 credit. You may think a $5 credit is no big deal.. but as of this morning- I got my $5.00 credit and only ended up spending $1.00 of my own money for a $30 gift certificate!! Crazy, I know! I am super happy I found Heartsy.

And if you love Jewels for Hope, and want a great deal, don't forget to vote for us! You have about 2 days from when this is posted to vote ha ha. Yes, very strict timeline I'm giving you- but I love you all and I know you love me so I know you won't be bothered <3


Happy Hopping!
