Quote of the day:

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

Eleanor Roosevelt, activist You Learn by Living


Diva On a Dime

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies. I am not sure if any of you have tried Loreal "HIP" Dual Eye shadows but let me tell you . They are FABULOUS! I have been using them for about 2 years now and continue to pick new colors all the time. The shadows are high in pigment so the color stays for long periods of time. Unlike some other pharmacy brand make- up these shadows are not dusty which is one of the 2 main reasons why I buy them. The other main reason why i love them so much is the PRICE!  Typically you will find them for about $10.00 (already a steal right) But While at CVS last week I stumbled across a little sign that said " 75% off selected Loreal Products" I'm sure I don't have to explain just how tickled I was! My Beloved dual shadows for $2.49 each! sooooo I stocked up! 4 new dual pods roughly $10.00, tri color peach blush 3.50, And two lip gloss tubes 2.50 Each. I could have cried I was so happy lol! So there you have it kids another ridiculous find for divas on a dime <3

Happy shopping!

Random thoughts

You are only as ugly as your insides.
Only as truthful as your lies.
Only as dark as your secret closets.
You are only tied and bound to the things you hide.

With open heart you see beauty.
You see truth.
You see light. 
You are only as free as your heart and mind.

Quote of the day:

"A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose-and don't let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion. (Live an illusion if you have to). You are that combination so that you can do what is essential for you to do. Don't ever believe that you have nothing to contribute. The world is an incredible unfulfilled tapestry. And only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours."
Leo Buscaglia


Diva On a Dime

As much as I would like to say that I have all the money in the world to buy all the top designer things I would like, Lets be honest.. I don't lol! Luckily I was fortunate to be blessed with a mother who taught me how to shop and style wisely. With that being said I thought it would be fun to blog about really great and inexpensive finds! So for the girls who want to look like a million bucks but Have rent due on the first this is for you <3

Today I took a Trip to Tj Max ( I la la la love Tj max) for a new bag and wallet. I was pleasantly surprised with the prices today. I came across guess bags for $20.00- $30.00 along with some other top designer bags like juicy couture ranging from $80.00-$250.00. After about half hour I ended up going with this awesome Jessica Simpson Bag and Nine west Wallet. Love the bag its got lots of pockets, its got great structure and the details are just enough.  Jessica Simpson bag: $39.00  Nine West Wallet: $7.00!!!!! Sold! Ill Take it! Bag it up lol <3

Goobye 2010 Hello 2011

With 2010 coming to a anticipated end I'm looking forward to the new year. Reflecting back on 2010 brings so many emotions to surface. It makes me realize just how much one person can go through in one year, It also makes me realize what a strong person I am having gone through the past year. Personally 2010 brought me to  turning point in my life, I realized I wasn't happy anymore... With my job, My social life, and most importantly with myself. I couldn't understand how I got lost in the day to day, no longer participating in my hobby's and feeling like I didn't even know what kind of things I liked anymore. I guess I was just feeling very lost.With Help from my loved ones and friends I starting doing little things here an there to help me cope with the icky feelings I had, listening to my gut feelings, Saying no when I meant no, actually processing my feelings and promising to myself that I would love and care for myself . Of course the process of self love and acceptance is a long one but I am proud to say I am on my way to a better me. So with 2011 I'm looking forward to learning me, to loving me for better or worse and I think I'm off to a good start! I'm ready to meet my potential, to end self doubt, to conquer all that I fear and have FUN!!! I hope that with the new year I find a place of peace, happiness and grace. Bring the good stuff 2011 <3
