Pardon my absence…

Ok, its been like-what? 3 weeks since my last confession? lol I kid. But it has been about 3 weeks since my last post, which is pretty unacceptable. In my defense, I have moved down to the City of Angels and started at FIDM (a fashion institute) and my life has been crazy crazy crazy. I am a small town girl (city girl at heart tho) and so it has been quite the adjustment for me. It is fast paced and confusing for me at times. Just last week I managed to get to school and back without using my TOM TOM; “feeling accomplished” as my Facebook may state. I love my tiny little studio. It overlooks downtown and the community pool. It is crazy to think that I somehow managed to downsize my things from a 3 bedroom house to a studio. I thought I was going to absolutely hate living in such small quarters, since I have only lived in houses, but I LOVE it! Its less to clean, less to be afraid of after watching pretty little liars, and less chance of me feeling lonely. I live completely by myself and since I just moved to L.A. a few weeks ago, its safe to say I’m kinda a loner. In due time people will see what an awesome person I am, in due time 😉

So, now that I am all settled in, internet up and working, its time for me to get to posting about some of my FAVORITE things! 🙂

Joss & Main

I seem to always be in a “nesting” mood. I sometimes wonder if I will ever be satisfied with the look of my home; evolving and changing your surroundings isn’t such a bad thing, right? Well for those of you who aren’t made of money like myself, jossandmain.com is great website for quality items for a fraction of the price. They have home styles to fit everyone’s taste. You do have to make an account, but it’s absolutely free (like it should be). The items I have ordered from them have always arrived fast and free of harm. There are so many items to choose from. Check it out! Image

Welcome…

Thanks for visiting my blog. I know I am little behind the curve since just about everyone has a blog by now, but I haven’t had the time to commit to a blog. I finally find myself in a place where I can devote a little part of my day towards something I like to do-write. This is not my first blog, I attempted at one a couple years ago, starting a fashion blog, jasminenova.com. However, after some life events that took over my life…I couldn’t keep up with it. I hope this time around is different.

So, a little about me:

I am 24 and happily devoted to my dog, Happy. I am a California girl all the way. I lived in Oklahoma City for a few years while I was active duty in the U.S. Air Force; an experience I will cherish forever. I am currently attending FIDM (Fashion Institute of Merchandise and Marketing) in Los Angeles. I am very much a free spirit, I love yoga, pilates, baking, nature, music, reading novels, and tuning into the wondrous world around me. I have a very open mind and tend to think ANYTHING is possible, but hey! I like that about myself. I am very intuitive, independent, vocal ( I speak my mind-not sorry about it), I’m a little feisty, but undeniably strong. My life has been far from easy. I grew up in a small town that I despised, with my younger brothers and mom. My mom was diagnosed with brain cancer halfway through my enlistment and passed away 8 months later. I then took my younger brother into custody. Finding myself right back in the same damn town I hated while growing up…I became miserable. I found myself face to face with that bitch called life. So, I said eff it and separated from the military, moved out of my small town AGAIN (vowing to never return), applied to FIDM, and decided to move out to L.A. to do what I want. It took me over a year to even spread my mom’s ashes. When I realized that I was over exerting myself to the point that it took me a year to spread my own moms ashes, I said enough is enough. This is my life and I want to enjoy it despite my circumstances. I am in charge of my own life and I refuse to be unhappy. Happiness is a choice and like my best friend told me, “There is no limit to happiness and health.” The bad passes with time and there is so much happiness and health waiting in the present and in the future. I made a choice to be positive, appreciating and loving myself and spending my days grateful for all that I have and to make the most of my life. So, Carpe that fucking diem!

So now that the boring part is out the way…what is my blog about, you ask?

Well…I will be sharing my thoughts on certain topics (especially health), favorite recipes, venues, books, fashion (duh), restaurants, music; wherever the wind blows me. I think I’m a pretty well rounded individual and this will be my place to keep track of all my great findings and to share them with whoever wants to listen! 🙂

Let’s do this!
