Hip T {Product Review}

Don't worry about calling the fashion police for me anymore! I have stumbled upon the greatest clothing piece ever. It's called a Hip-T & it serves its purpose well, hanging on your hip covering the not-so-cute faux pas of showing too much muffin top or the top of the cheeks when wearing your trendy low rise jeans. I do heart my assets so please do not misunderstand the message...its just not something that I want to show off in public!

This fun and flirty group has cracked the code as to how to handle this the easy way. We've all had the dreaded morning rush of trying layer after layer...length after length, trying to find the best answer to cover the midsection. Want the secret? Here's the lowdown:

This is a problem - is this you? or has this ever been you?


If you answered YES - then you need a hip T ASAP!



These beauties come in a variety of colors and styles so it is easy for you to pick what fits you best. The price is very reasonable, so there is no reason for you not to invest!

I received the white lace Hip-T and it has done wonders to my outfit. I am in love with it...and truthfully probably wear it too much! It true, you will want one in every color! Plus, its fun to show off - because you can't find these just anywhere.

See for yourself. Visit the site & check it out at You won't be sorry that you did! Not only should you pick up one for yourself - rescue your female family and friends!
Shhhh! A bonus: My Hip-T is advertising free shipping on Thursdays & Fridays until December 19th!

As their quote holds true... "DON'T LET YOUR STYLE FALL THROUGH THE CRACK!"

Pillow Talk {Sewing Project}

I finished my first project for the future apartment! I made 2 throw pillows for my couch. They are oversized - tan gingham on the front, and solid chocolate on the back. The other major milestone in this is that I used a sewing machine! Yes, me...I did it! My mom showed me the ropes & after it was finally threaded correctly and we figured out how to make the machine work without any instructions - it was pretty easy-cheesy. Now I have to get some more stuffing and I am good to go. Next, I will make a few more accent pillows that I can change out any time I like. I am also going to make my curtains & I can't wait.

I would have some pictures for you...but my pink camera is missing! I must find it tomorrow & will show you my masterpiece.

Also, I got some more goodies for decor that I am in love with! I will show  those later too.

Thought it was Wednesday

Aaaah Monday?! Monday was the last day I posted. That is crazy. I had no idea it had been that long ago. This week flew by so fast. Plus, I woke up this morning thinking it was Wednesday. I can hardly keep up with myself or my life anymore. Thanksgiving is around the corner...and then there's Christmas....then New Years...and then it will be time to do it all over again. It's OK though. 2009 is going to be a great year.

Friday night bliss = me - my pj's - the t.v. - knowing that I will sleep in tomorrow :-)

Recaps: Cuz that's how I roll...

Ow! Me and my friend have been jogging and doing old school situps for the last few days. I have to share with you that I am so flippin sore and tired! Wow. New Years is around the corner. But, this time I am not waiting for New Years to start my weightloss/inshape/hotness/fabulousness goals. I'm gonna try to get this under wraps with New Years being my deadline. Psst...don't forget I'm going to Nashville to celebrate!

Found a few apartments this week which I like. So this is a start for me. I've been looking around for some decor inspiration and I hate to inform you that I haven't found it yet.

My "blind date" from a month ago is actually turning into a little more slowly but surely. He seems precious so I think I will be willing to give this one a try. I would be stupid not to :-) Rawr.

Apt, Shots, Dates, & Christmas (hmm?)

Eeek! I am getting nervous about this whole apartment idea again. Wow - can I really live off of beenie weenies? I guess so. I'm going to be doing researching tonight. Although, I already have 2 or 3 in mind that I want to visit.

I'm taking B12 and fatburner shots again (geez the word shot just sounds so hardcore there) but it really is. This will help me jumpstart the process so I can get ready for summer. I know its crazy to start this time of year...but I think we all know and can agree that losing weight doesn't happen over night.

Guess what?! I have a date #3 Friday. The firefighter is going to cook dinner for me :-) YAY!

Life is still rockin' and rollin.' Oh, and btw...I've already started listening to Christmas music (so shoot me!)

flip & tumble {review}

Oh. My. Goodness.

How fab does it feel to shop in style while knowing that you are contributing to a great cause? This whole go green trend is not only cute - it is actually doing wonders for our home...Mother Earth. Did you know that a reusable bag can save over 1,000 plastic bags in its lifetime? But, the only way to do that is to actually use it!

I received the flip & tumble 24-7 bag & loopt bag. These bags are 247flipandtumblebagsmall enough to have on hand at any given time. They are designed to make it easy to carry groceries, gym clothes, you name it! My favorite feature is that when done, it converts into a small ball about the size of a peach in 8 seconds flat. However, I think I've already used them enough that I can beat the promoted score!

The 24-7 bag is so easy to use. Its sleek design is great and its purpose even better. This sucker can hold up to 25 pounds...that's a lot...see for yourself:


Loopt bag is not only fun to say, its fun to use. Its bigger than the 24-7 bag - so it can be used as an overnight bag, or for those hardcore shopping days.

I would definitely recommend grabbing one (or both) of the flip & tumble bags and make it apart of your everyday shopping experience or the grab-n-go moments that never fail to come your way!

Life is good?

Life has been good here lately. Not a lot has changed - no big projects - no drama - just the usual. And sometimes that is just fine with me. I have been able to enjoy relaxation, exercise, and fun.

I am apartment searching again. Anyone who had visited my old blog may remember my search last year. Unsuccessful. Now it is up again.

5 pounds have been dropped. I guess my exercise and diet are working. I'm getting ready for a fun time in Nashvegas for New Years. My best friend and I are going to bring it in right this year. Last years didn't cut the mustard. Maybe that's why this year had many downs for us both! Not this year baby! It's going to be all good.

I've been on a second date with last weeks blind date. This is actually the first time in a long time that I have felt sparks with someone - so it is exciting!

Work is crazy, as usual. A little more crazy this week, but that's ok.

Other than that its been a cruise. I will have a lot of fun posts in the upcoming future. I've found a lot of great DIY projects that you will fall in love with. All going to the new apartment :)

The Blind Date


Just thought I'd share a snapshot of today's 'hot dates' bod to make you jealous :-)

I had never met him before - one of my brother's friends knew him & kind of got it started. So, after a few myspace messages, txt messages, and phone calls we finally met face to face!

I was SO nervous. I haven't been on a blind date in a long time. We had a blast - ate lunch & then hit the trails...4 miles. It was beautiful, but my body is paying for it now.

We have decided to do it again.

BONUS: Firefighter....rawr.

Guess who has a hot date tomorrow :-) Can't wait!

P.S. Don't forget the clocks fall back an hour tonight...
