Vegan Things I Tried So You Don’t Have To

So I’m still trying to find a good cheese (lol) and I tried a few new things and some of them were less than enjoyable as usual.

Okay so not really a yogurt person? I really can’t imagine anyone really is like who is really out there eating yogurt because they actually like it and not because they’re trying to be healthy. I tried this basically for the sake of trying it and I kinda just want to eat things that are easy to get and less likely to go bad in a few mere days (hello fruit looking at your ass). This was thinner than normal yogurt but other than that not bad! Tasted basically the same and dare I say good. If your a yogurt person definitely recommend this. Go this at Whole Foods (of course).

If I think really really hard, I can still remember the days I used to eat a bagel and cream cheese every week. Those cream cheese days are over, but thankfully not my bagel days. Tried this stuff again, kind of just to try it. Everyone knows the beautiful taste of cream cheese and this, unfortunately, did not live up. It was not unenjoyable, but it tastes basically like unsalted butter. Smooth and creamy, but not flavor really. Still put it in my whole grain bagel with some raspberries and wasn’t mad at it so I mean if your looking to trick yourself into thinking you’re eating cream cheese, this is the spread for you.

WAS going to use these to make a vegan cheese quesadilla but G-O-D had other plans and was like “just eat normal cheese Katie it’s fine” and honestly who am I to argue with God and the universe? So I cheated and ate it with normal cheese (also lets take a second and think about how I also ate these on the regular how was I not 700 pounds???) and they held up well guys. Thinner than the normal tortillas but taste very good so no complaints here. Funny story, also wanted to try a dairy free sour cream and accidentally bought lactose free sour cream instead of dairy free ugh. I was eating it and wondering why it was so damn good and then I read the ingredients…. You know what guys ignorance is very much bliss and I’ll attest to that.

As I was expecting, this was not a winner. Definitely not as bad as the macaroni I was eating, but not worth the calories. For some unknown reason, it was a lot of calories??? I’m sorry but if I’m gonna eat a pizza that is

  1. vegan

and

2. small as heck

I would think it would be kinda healthy and not a ton of calories??? I was sadly mistaken because this thing is supposedly 900 calories. Among the strange ingredients are: psyllium(apparently good for digestion if you believe the internet), expeller pressed canola? seems unnecessary, critic acid and titanium dioxide. The last one is something they also use in their cheeses which is some sort of white powder used to make things white (I looked it up). Seems to be some debate on whether or not its safe to consume so I’m gonna pass on Daiya stuff from now on sorry not sorry. I would like to actually know whats in the stuff I’m eating.

I FOUND A CHEESE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I FOUND A CHEESE ONE WHOLE CHEESE.   This passed the no-playdoh tasting test and actually ate a whole slice by itself like it was regular old cheese. The best part? There’s no weird ingredients that make me nervous. Lets compare ingredients shall we?

Vegan Attempts: An Absolute Failure

As you guys are aware if you’ve ever followed this blog, I try my very hardest to be vegan. For the most part, it’s rather enjoyable and interesting to discover things I can substitute for dairy or meat in order to eat the things I love. Sometimes, it’s nice to be conscious of what you put in your body on a daily basis and require yourself to think before you eat. However, one of the worst things about being vegan is missing out on the glorious thing that is cheese. Cheese is beautiful and delicious and if you love it like I do, it can be a full meal all on its own. They are fabulous substitutes of milk and eggs, but I have found dairy free cheese to be the grossest stuff ever (although I haven’t tried every brand). Daiya makes amazing dairy free stuff and so I set out to try making vegan mac and cheese, aka my favorite meal of all time.

I used just these ingredients because I wasn’t about to get all fancy with it and have it taste gross so I decided to keep it simple and hope for the best.

First, I cooked the pasta and put a little of the pasta water with it because thats what PROFESSIONALS do thanks.

I added equal parts milk and cheese and started melting it. Usually, with regular cheese and milk there’s more milk but since this is weird cheese and different milk I just made them equal so it wouldn’t be runny.

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

It took foreeevveerrrrrr to melt and was extremely liquidy and so I got a lil nervous and added more cheese.

As it was melting, it smelled exactly like a boiling pot of playdoh. No joke. Here’s me feeling very nervous and hungry

Here’s it looking a lil weird, but fully melted!

And wow here’s the finishing product looks soo good right?

Here’s me chickening out cause it smells so bad and I don’t wanna eat it at all….

 

 

And here’s me thinking yes tastes exactly as it smells a steaming pile of playdoh with noodles

 

 

In conclusion:

So yeah, learn from me and don’t do this!!!! Maybe I’ll try some other cheeses and attempt this again, but for nowI am scared of vegan cheese and will not be attempting this until the playdoh taste is out of my mouth!

Live From New York it’s the Sunday Vibes

Before we begin I gotta talk about this cute as shit little bakery right next my apartment I discovered (actually Kristen did when looking at my location on Find My Friends so shout out to her). It’s super tiny, but cute and there’s cat decorations all over the place. Bonus is that most of their stuff is gluten free and everything is vegan. Sometimes living in Brooklyn annoys me, but this is one of those times where Brooklyn is cool as heck.

This week I thought I’d give a little tutorial on how I do my eyeshadow. This is how I do it when I’m going out and wanna look fancy!

IMG_0681.JPG

So I’m using this Kylie Jenner Palette, the Burgundy Palette. I may not like Kylie Jenner very much (like who cares if she’s pregnant barf me), but I gotta admit, her eyeshadow is really good. Super pigmented and I don’t have to use a whole bunch of it to achieve the color I want.

I’m gonna be using the red colors cause they match the scarf I’m wearing tonight (cause I’m matchy matchy af). Most people who do their makeup start with the eyes but I never understood that tbh. I wanna go for a more dramatic look so I’m gonna put tape on the side of my eyes to help get a cat eye without free handing it.

I just kinda eye ball it and hope I get them straight (sometimes works sometimes they’re crooked because I am just a girl not an expert). I make sure to put on eyeshadow primer, I use the Two Faced one.

I usually start with the more glittery part on my eye lid and then the more matte shade in my crease. Next I’m gonna line my eyes with black shadow and smudge it out. I used the Naked two palette and the last black shade.

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

I sort of do a triangle thing in the corner of my eye. I also highlight my brow bone and the other corner of my eye. This is the finished product!

I usually don’t go this dramatic but the opera calls for the dramatic right? Right.

Got this beauty on sale at Express and I am in lurrrrveeeeee. I paired it with this top because I like the contrasting fabrics of satin and leather, but you can do lace as well!

Had another Saturday where my brain violently did not want to workout. I decided maybe I should start incorporating some yoga in my life sine people rave about it a lot. I’ve tried it before but I usually find it so slow and I get tired of it very easily. This one however was relatively fast paced and I actually was slightly sweaty after. I only burned about 150 cal (which I tried not to stress about) but I felt pretty tight and toned afterwards. Might have to go against my extreme cardio nature and do this more often (maybe).

So I finally finished the first season of Riverdale (its been on my Netflix list for agggeeessssss). To sum it up, its kinda like a more fast paced Pretty Little Liars (or should I say better cause it took 40 years to find out who A is). There were a couple weird parts like when Veronica and Cheryl have this like dance off and its very weird and cringe-worthy. I guess it’s more directed toward idk people in actual high school, but some parts make me barfy(like how much they SING). I am patiently waiting for season two to be on Netflix despite my judgment. Here’s hoping I don’t quit it in the middle for season 4 like I did with PLL. Only so much “who done it? Find out in three years” a person can take.

THIS.BOOK. Obviously one of my favorite authors and this book reels you in with the first chapter, its insane. I haven’t technically finished it yet, although I read it till 3 am last night for no other reason than I couldn’t stop. Its all about true crime and thriller stuff but thats all I’ll say cause when I first started reading it I also had no idea what it was about, so you should be blinded and delightfully surprised as well.

Pandora decided it was going to keep crashing my phone, so it had to go. Luckily, I found a playlist I liked on Spotify that I loved just as much. I only have two settings when it comes to Christmas: classic Christmas and jazzy Christmas. Unfortunately, Spotify can only satisfy one at a time.

Kept it a little low-key this weekend and just went to Opera (I think I just contradicted myself?). I felt like an old bitty complaining about today’s uncultured youth anytime I told anyone what I was doing that night. But also a very fancy old bitty. Then my friend proceed to inform me this was probably gonna last about 3 hours and I started to feel a little less fancy and little more worried I would die of boredom. The Opera was Thaïs which is basically about this godly man trying to convert this promiscuous lady to become a nun. It works, but not before he decides he loves her and doesn’t wanna be godly anymore (men are fickle beings). The first act was a little dull and I began to fear that I wouldn’t make it through all three, but to be fair, the first Act was a lot of praying and exclaiming. Also the entire thing was in French (which I only knew because I recognized the word for garden thanks 4 years of french!), so you have to read the words on the little screen in front of you (thankful for the little screen otherwise what a snooze fest). The second and third acts were more entertaining with this famous violin solo in the middle of Act II and III. If you’ve ever watched a cartoon in the 90s I feel like this was in an episode somewhere (or maybe I made that up but I recognize it!!). Then I was like “if I like this am I a weird nerd?” but then when was I ever to a nerd? There were a few funny parts (I don’t think they meant them to be funny) like when a guy threw a bunch of cash in the air to distract them so Thaīs and the guy (whatever his name is) could get away cause that is definitely a sure fire way to distract me too. All in all something I would definitely do again if I ever wanna feel  •cultured•

Function of Beauty shampoo & conditioner 

I finnaaallllyyyyy got my Function of Beauty shampoo and conditioner I had been dying  to try. In case you’re unaware, this shampoo claims to be made for my hair. You fill out a little quiz where you say what you want your hair goals to be, and what your hair is like currently. My hair is straight and oily so I wanted oil control, volume and scalp soothing! So here’s my hair after washing it the first time and drying it with a round brush:

IMG_0491

 

Thoughts: My hair felt soo soft, but maybe it was just the fact that I was using something different from the norm? Volume seems pretty normal and my hair smelled fantastic.

 

After a full day of work and treating my hair like I always do: Still very soft, but kinda flat. Wouldn’t say worse than normal, but still. Upside is I don’t think its as oily as it normally is after work! The true test is how it will look tomorrow when I wake up (cause its usually a grease ball).

Okay here’s day 2:

IMG_0496

Not too bad, honestly. Not a huge difference from the normal though.

IMG_0492

Not sure if this is a placebo effect, but i feel like this looks better than normal??? Its definitely soft still, but this is probably a good hair day for me not a normal hair day.

Here it is on its best day Thursday:

IMG_0513

Okay so I don’t wanna post like a billion pictures of the same thing so I’ll just say how I felt about it overall.  I feel like eh value was the biggest improvement and the thing I noticed the most. My hair is still pretty oily, no more than normal though. Overall, I like it. Is it better than what I normally use? I’d say yeah. Is it worth spending more money on? Not really. I was expecting life changing, but that’s not really what I got. Smells ah-mazing though!

PopSugar Fitness 45min Tabata on Youtube

I need validation cause I got up on thanksgiving and did a 45 minute workout (and then proceeded to not workout the rest of the weekend). This sounds easy in retrospect because its 8 rounds of work for only 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off. Like whatever right? The sweat was real and crazy. Kinda like insanity, but less insane and awful.

 Into the Water By Paula Hawkins

In between watching Gossip Girl for the 10 billionth time, I managed to finish this in like 3 days. Its the same author that wrote Girl on the Train and has the same murder mystery twist that I loved in the last one. This one is about a string of mysterious suicide drownings in a lake in a small town. OR are they suicides???????? Keeps you going literally till the last sentence (read it to know what I mean). 10/10

Thursday after my sweatfest, I went to a friends giving in Jersey City. Its a pretty nice city but man is it inaccessible as shit. Only one train in or out is rough and slow. Anyway, I got in with my mac and cheese (not vegan friendly) and met everyone. I got invited because my friend knew the person throwing it. We drank and ate and somehow popped some illegal fireworks then ate some more. A very fun thanksgiving well spent I would say.

Saturday was a brunch day at Jack’s Wife Frieda which I’ve been wanting to try out! We went to the one in the west village since I love that area. There was a lot of people waiting, but it didn’t take very long to get a table at all. Very cute and delicious (like me). Then we walked around shopping and looking at all the Christmas stuff.

Managed to get this crazy awesome shot inside the 4th floor of Burlington Coat Factory haha. Then went went out in the Lower East Side to Pianos, which is now my new favorite place. You had to pay 8 bucks to get to the top floor (for some reason) and it was worth every cent. The music was awesome and I danced and sweated my butt off (sweaters don’t work in bars). The night ended with pizza, of course, but all in all one of the best Saturday nights in NYC!

Secrets time: I never not have my nails done. Sometimes they’re chipped or whatever, but if i have nothing on them? Assume I’ve been body snatched. I picked this baby up at Target and its gorgeous. I usually don’t worry too much about brands when it comes to nail stuff I just go for the colors I like, I like using glittery colors for accent nail (or nails if I’m feeling sãssy).

Sir Kensington’s Fabanaise Chipotle Mayo @ Whole Foods $8.00

OKAY IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE IN THIS WHOLE BLOG JUST READ THIS!!!! I have found the holy grail. It was located in Whole Foods right next to work all innocent and harmless looking and it has now taken over my life. Bought this literally on a whim just to try it because I love chipotle mayo. I have now put it on: a veggie burger, my kale salad, literally just dipped cherry tomatoes in it, a grilled cheese, and my finger. I really don’t know how this stuff is vegan and yet so amazing but I decide not to question it. All the ingredients you can read and pronounce, nothing weird or sketchy. I have never been so happy about being vegan. Seriously gets because no one is paying me to say its this good.

So I wanted to talk about something I’ve been doing for almost a year now which is called interval fasting. I started last spring semester simply because my class schedule was so crazy in the morning that I just didn’t have time to eat and hated eating in front of  people in class or scarfing it down in my car right before class, so I just waited till around 12 to eat everyday. Then I learned there was an actual term for that. I find it really helps my body restart in the morning when I just drink a bunch of water and then have coffee before I eat anything. The most important part is to have water and a lot of it in the mornings just to sort of clear your head for the day. I like doing and definitely recommend. I also usually stop eating at 8pm which means I only eat for about 8 hours. I tend to go to bed around 10 so this really helps me digest everything before I sleep! Definitely recommend trying this if you’re trying to be a little healthier and kinder to your body!

1922 on Netflix

So maybe I’ve been listening to too many podcasts about crime and murderers but now it has migrated to me watching movies about it too. I’m actually loving all of these Stephen King movies so maybe I should start reading his books now? This one was about a man who kills his wife with the help of his son in order to stay in the farm life and not move to the city of Omaha. Tbh I would also have to resort to murder if I was being forced to move to Omaha but thats just me. Very creepy would recommend.

Get Out on HBO GO

So I tried to see this when it came out but the movie was sold out and I never visited it again cause I really never go to the movies anyway. I saw it was on HBO Go and could not resist watching it since it has fabulous reviews. It did not disappoint at all. The symbolism behind it was very spot on and just a fantastic movie. A must see for sure.

Ten Years EP by Aly & AJ

Since the release of their single i have been patiently waiting for their album release and this week they released an EP!

Kept it pretty low-key this weekend after all the craziness of last weekend so I didn’t do too much.

 

Saturday I discover the target in tribeca which is almost as good as the one back home (almost). Ended up getting the cutest little tree for the apartment so I’m gearing up for Christmas and skipping Thanksgiving cause ick. One of my friends moved to Financial District so we went out to celebrate. I tried this club Bowery Electric and maybe I’m just not into the club scene without a promoter cause it was very blah. They also wouldn’t let you in a certain area without paying 10 dollars which is so unnecessarily boujee. I mean what if I go up there and its not even fun? Might as well light 10 bucks on fire. Thankfully I spent my 10 dollars at Prince street pizza instead which was a way better use of my money cause that pizza was amazing. I think its famous???? cause there were a bunch of celebrity pictures up. I didn’t appreciate the judgment when I ordered 3 pieces of pizza but I GUESS I’ll go back despite my shame because it was so good.

I had to buy myself a birthday outfit on the fly (cause my nasty gal stuff has been returned to sender and I don’t wanna talk about how sad I was about it). So I went where I belong aka Forever 21. Took me all of an hour to find something I loved and proceeded to never mistrust Forever 21’s powers again. Buyers warning the skirt is not made for sitting as it rises up super far and scandalous when sitting (although maybe that’s the point). Its so cute and soft however and worth the mere 20 bucks I paid. The shirt was sooo hard to find a bra for because it’s literally see-through, but I decided to just do a bralette and throw caution to the wind. You could also make it more family-friendly and put a crop-top came with it as well. The booties I’ve had for literally years but here’s a link to some I really love that are similar and made by the same brand I love. I felt amazing on my birthday night and that’s really all a gal can ask for, right? (although I was dying while walking around outside #worthit).

Kale Available wherever you buy groceries I’m sure

Honey Dijon Vinaigrette Cindy’s Kitchen Whole Foods

Daiya Dairy Free Mozzarella Cheese Amazon or Whole Foods

Nut and Berry Mix Whole Foods

Okay ya’ll are judging me hard core cause as you’ve probably guessed –  that is kale. I am eating kale and now I am promoting the consumption of kale. I went to this pizza restaurant with a friend and she said Oh we have to get the kale salad it’s so good, and i’m like are you crazy? There’s pizza here. But I went with it and wow-e. It was so good. It was just kale with this sweet & sour vinaigrette and some nuts, but I could not stop eating it. So obviously when I went to whole foods the next week I decided to try to recreate it. I just grabbed a nut mix of cranberries, cashews, almonds and other various nuts and then my fave dairy free cheese. For dressing I picked a Dijon Mustard vinaigrette which I figured would be like a health honey mustard which sounded good and I was correct. I picked it up not really worried if it was vegan or gluten-free cause I gotta live when it comes to dressing. But good news – it is!!! and I didn’t even know it!! I really don’t get why people don’t like kale, its basically crunchier lettuce with less of the nasty white part that sucks so its cool in my book.

So I woke up the day after my birthday and after mounds of bread and cheese and 3 glasses of champagne, my body was not ready for this workout. I powered through despite my slight nausea and managed to burn 211 calories! In not even a full 30 minutes! Each set of workouts is strength and cardio. It goes really quick from one workout to the next, so you aren’t sitting there doing squat jumps for 45 seconds and quitting after 30. I’m really starting to love Pop Sugar Fitness so it may be the only workouts featured on my page for a while.

So I found another true crime playlist (when will the obsession end?). This one is about a boy who was abducted in 1989, but the case was unsolved for almost 30 years because of police negligence in this specific county. It really makes you question the way our law enforcement runs and if they’re really doing their jobs the way they are supposed to. Also talks about the stuff this poor kid’s parents had to endure like unsolicited phone calls of people telling them they found their son and rude TV people. Crazy cool to listen to. Also if you have any podcast recommendations for me that AREN’T true crime for once, I’d appreciate it lol. Need to step out of the crazy crime world for a bit.

Okay so it is 35 degrees in New York as a HIGH and so guess what? – its Christmas now. Really this is the only thing making the awful chill better and I HIGHLY recommend the pandora station Michael Buble holiday if you love classic Christmas and jazzy Christmas and Michael Buble Christmas. If you don’t love any of those – you must NOT like Christmas, and idk what’s worse. I was listening to this while walking into Grand Central Station and was tearing up a ‘lil bit cause one-year-ago me was dreaming about being here for this season and now I am! Crazy. Although nothing could prepare me for this cold-  it is legit BRUTAL

It was my birthday on Wednesday (how many times will I mention that in one post?), so we got to go to my favorite building in my favorite park! I made reservations like I was turning 32 not 23 and I was EARLY which never happens ever because I live in Brooklyn and the subway is slow. I decided to take our table outside (cause they gave me the option so I thought why not?) and it was magical. I felt very old and classy buying a $64 dollar bottle of champagne but then only ordering an appetizer and dessert, balance is key. It was simple, but I loved it very much and there was a giant smile on face even after I left.

IMG_0371IMG_0373IMG_0374IMG_0420

Friday I got out of the city and went to Tarry town/ Sleepy Hollow. It was FREEZING so we didn’t do much besides eat, but the food was good and the company was great. It was sorta surreal being in like a New England small town. Kinda like I stepped into an 80’s Christmas movie or idk Homeward Bound? It was so cute and every house had those little go-betweens (or whatever the actual crap those things are) where the door to the house has a little tiny area and then you open another door to get in the house. It’s to like keep out the cold and riff raft. I loved it because it looked so different than the small towns I’m used to seeing. In actuality, I’m sure people from New York think places like that are like my Alexandria and Eunice, LA (sorry Dad), aka lame and get me outta here fast. But I liked it a lot and i wish it hadn’t been 20 fricken degrees.

Saturday I went shopping all day and spent 20 bucks on a bagel cause I didn’t wanna walk farther (lol). It was actually really good and supposedly one of the best in the city (Sadelle’s) but still sheesh. So after shopping I got ready for dinner and just kinda hung around. Took an uber which was a nice change and we went to this restaurant called The Loring Place. It was so cute and nice and supposedly a place to go for GNO which is our exact reason for being there. The cranberry Cosmo I had was awesome definitely recommend. Then we went downtown the PHD rooftop and danced our butts off. For the most part I’m more of a sit and drink and have fun person, but sometimes I’m down to dance till 4. All in all a great birthday week and weekend! Thanks to everyone who came 🙂

This blogger I follow has like the best hair I’ve ever seen in my life. Like its probably fake and takes 80 years for her to get it how she does in pictures but it looks amazing, always. So the other day, I’m looking at her Insta story and she posts about this volume stuff that she “supposedly uses” and I’m like wait they have stuff just for volume???? I’m intrigued cause my hair can get super flat and gross cause I wash it too much and touch it often. So I bought the tiny bottle and decided to just try it out.

Here’s my hair before (air dried):

And after spraying roots and fluffing(and straightening):

IMG_0279

This claims to be some sort of god send, and while it smells like heaven it’s very meh. I think, overall it helped my hair get a little more volume than normal, but I felt like I had to use a lot of it to achieve what I wanted. Not sure if i’ll be buying more of it once my tiny bottle runs out.

Simplee Apparel Women’s Slim Leg Stretch Casual Pants on Amazon $22.99

Literally need to stop taking my pictures in the bathroom at work cause someone is gonna walk in and its gonna be weird and I’m gonna be that girl. It got randomly warmer last week so I got to go jacket free and not freeze. I’m in love with blanket scarves cause it can be a scarf or a shawl type thing fro when it cold and you refuse to wear your leather jacket for the 5th day in a row (#relatable). I usually pair mine with a neutral top like this one in order to give my outfit some pizzazzzz or ya know just color. Okay lets talk about these pants. They are cute as heck with their ruffled waist and deep pockets. So soft and so comfortable. Saw some similar at this online boutique for about 50 bucks, but these are cheaper and look exactly like them! If you get them, do size up cause the butt can be a little snug. I’m gonna get them in every color by the time the season is up no joke.

This stuff is like all the rage among health junkies and for very good reason. A healthier version of ice cream that doesn’t taste like fakeness and lies. My favorite are the Caramel Macchiato and the Sea Salt Caramel (basically anything caramel its gonna be good). Tip: let it defrost a bit before you eat it and it’ll taste 10000000000x better trust me I’m wise.

Sarah’s Day 15 minute Fat burner Boxing on Youtube

YA’LL. Ya girl put out a new video and I was so pumped to try it when I got up on Saturday I didn’t even hesitate. This one really focuses on arms and abs while incorporating a little bit of legs with squats and kicks. I managed to burn 150 calories in literally only 15 minutes you can’t beat that. Also, when I woke up this morning my abs and arms huuurrrttt, but in the best way (cause my abs never get sore anymore for whatever reason). I really really loved this workout basically so go try it.

Stranger Things on Netflix

Okay everyone and their mom is talking about this show because it’s amazing and if you haven’t seen it who are you and why do you hate good things. I watched this in a span of one day literally the definition of binged it. I have two things to say: Steve and Bob are the GOATS and are UNAPPRECIATED (especially Steve). And Steve honey if she doesn’t appreciate you then she aint worth it. okay bye.

Flicker By Niall Horan

Wow take me back to summer of my junior year when I was so obsessed with One Direction that I literally did nothing but go to the gym, stalk them all day on social media, sleep and repeat. Honestly, I’m glad they split up, sorry not sorry. Zayn blessed us with the best album ever, Harry got weird, and Louis and Liam are trying so hard to be Zaddys it’s embarrassing. Niall, thankfully is still his cute self and this album he finally gets to really sing and put himself out there as an artist. I’m proud of him okay? My favorite off the album is Mirrors.

Friday I tried the infamous Joe’s pizza and am confused. I mean its hard to mess up pizza cause even when its kinda bad its still pretty good, but this was very ight. Even a little, dare I say, burnt. I’m sorry. Bravo pizza in NYC is still #1 in my heart  and taste buds tbh.

Saturday was a bit of home away from home. My friend invited us over and made some really amazing gumbo and sangria. I was a very happy camper. Then we watched LSU get its ass beat by Alabama for the fifth (?) year in a row. Lordy. The hurricanes at good ole Legends helped ease the pain thankfully.

Fun weekend in preparation for the big 2-3 next week!

Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream It Cosmetics @ Sephora $15.00 (small size)

Being totally real guys, I haven’t bought anything from Sephora in like, months. The issue is I spend way more than I want to every single time and so it’s better to never go in there at all. However, I was running out of Tinted Moisturizer and I really needed to stop jamming my brush into the bottle to get the last drop. So I went. I got a new tinted moisturizer since I said I would try to find something that wasn’t mf 45 bucks a bottle which is admittedly insane. Iv’e been hearing really good things about this one, I know its only like 7 dollars cheaper but my brain makes a huge jump from 30 to 40 okay!!!!!!!! And I got the tiny 15 dollar bottle. Anyway, another blogger named Katie (hay) recommended it, it won an Allure award for readers choice and has fab reviews from the Sephora website. So I bought both light and medium, but ultimately went with medium to match my self-tanner (lol).

Heres what both colors looked like on my skin:

Heres before and afters of my skin:

 

Tbh? Not super impressed. I like it, but its really not very different from what I was already using. The coverage looks to be about the same as NARS and feels about the same. I will say it is cheaper, so definitely worth checking out. I’m not going crazy about it since I still have to use coverup and I also wouldn’t say I’m necessarily using less of it either.

Faux Nubuck Pointed toe Pumps @ Charlotte Russe $19.79

I tried so hard this week to spice up my outfits and failed horribly lol. I really need a full length mirror cause I gotta start checking myself cause I am wrecking myself (self confidence wise). Buuuutttttt, I managed to get it right once this week so of course I documented it. I got so many compliments on my shoes, but I’m gonna be honest. THEY HURT SO BAD. I actually squealed in pain when I took them off at the end of the day. To be fair though, I’ve only worn them one other time. I cent tell if I still have to break them in, or just chuck them and call it a day. I’ll keep you updated. But they really are so cute. Also while looking for these on the Charlotte Russe website I realized they got some cute ass shoes. This top, is like my new favorite. Its shiny and slouchy and love the new sleeve detail trend so so much. Anndddd its on sale!!!

Daiya Vegan and Dairy Free Cheesecake @ Wholefoods

I keep going to whole foods after work, starving, so I keep buying weird snack stuff. This required like 6 hours of defrosting for some reason, but I just left it on my counter for like an hour. Honestly, would recommend. It exactly like a cheesecake like if I didn’t have the box, I wouldn’t know the difference. So if you’re looking for a substitute, definitely recommend!

I would like to proudly state that I worked out everyday this week thank you very much. I got on a kick of these popsugar fitness videos because they have a bunch of quick HITT workouts. I recommend just checking out the whole youtube channel, but my favorite is the one I’ll link here. Quick and really burns some serious calories!

Mind hunters On Netflix

I started watching this because lately i’ve been obsessed with serial killers (in a totally normal not gonna be the next serial murderer kinda way), mostly because of my favorite murder. I liked the overall concept and it was pretty good, but the end of it was kinda, ehh. I was waiting for some big blow up or like something really crazy to happen and it was just, oh okay that was a little weird. Kinda bummed but I will definitely stay tuned for the next season whenever that will be.

Tear You Apart She Wants Revenge

So I decided to post about this song because Halloween vibezzzzz even though its old. I heard it first when I watched American Horror Story: Hotel (which is the best one don’t fight me on this), and the whole time its playing theres like a super gore-y murder going on but its such a bop. You think the song is actually about murder, but its really just about a dude having s crush on a girl (which tbh is pretty scary).

The Girl Before by J.P Delaney 

This book was freakyyyy. Its about two different girls who go through a traumatic event in their lives, and move into this really crazy, high tech, minimal house. One of the girls dies in the house and then the other girl moves in and then all these strange similar things happen to the new girl in the house. I’m explaining it so bad but its good I promise. Plot twists throughout, but like a weird sad ending.

NYC Weekend Adventures™

So this weekend I went to a lot of cool bars!

Friday I finally experienced Mr. Purple, which sounds like some sort of trashy creep zone overtime I say the name of it out loud. It has a pretty awesome rooftop, although one drink is 17 dollars?? Since there’s no bag check, I suggest bringing a flask if you trying to have fun and not go broke. Next, was Beauty and Essex. The font is like a weird music room and then they open the doors to like this dark, staircase room. It just screams classy and sultry. I wish I had taken pictures of it, but also don’t wanna look like a dweeby tourist (I’m sure I’ll be back soon though). Also note the music was awesome, which means I was having fun even though I was kinda sober by then.

OOO I also went and got this baby:

It looked as good as it actually was, no lie. I got the seasonal spice flavor and damn was it good. 10/10 would recommend.

Saturday, we tried to do spooky Halloween bar crawl but the universe was not having it. Every place was having some sort of halloween thing, we needed tickets for which is annoying. One place went to literally said “oh its $175 dollars but it’s open bar and theres a burlesque show and a really awesome DJ” and I was like honey, do you have an idea how much I would need to drink for that to be worth it?? G-bye. So we ended up just going to random bars and looking at all the people in their costumes. We went to this one place called KeyBar and it was pretty cool, but then this british guy who was having an existential crisis kept talking to us. Saying shit like “oh I’m more than my accent” and “you’re getting drunk because you’re trying to forget something.” I literally said to him at one point “Dude its not that deep..” I was over it. Tried to get into another bar that was supposedly laying cool 80s music but,  had a cover which is so dumb this aint Fred’s free drinks I refuse to pay cover with no benefits. Might as well light my money on fire. Finally just settled on a few bars that didn’t feel like we were in the armpit of NYC. I guess this sounds like more of an un-success but I still had fun so whatever.

So I moved again. This is now the third place I’ve lived in in the span of one month lol. Anyway, I went to a new coffee place to blog (gotta keep up the Carrie Bradshaw vibes). I picked this place simply because it was super cute and right between me and the laundry mat cause unfortunately I still gotta go somewhere and do my laundry ugh.

Anyway more on my life later, here are the vibes.

e.l.f. Contour Eye Brush @ Target $2.99

Sephora Contouring Brush @ Sephora $32.00

I wanted to touch a little bit on my contouring (how the hell do you spell that??) routine that I do. Now, I aint no pro, but I try my best and I got compliments on it so don’t listen to me if you don’t want to!!! But these are the things I use and the brushes. The smaller one I use for contouring my nose, which by that I mean I draw some lines down the sides of my nose and call it a day. I also use it for highlighter after my bronzer. The bigger brush I use for my bronzer. I just sorta squish it in a straight line to get more of a straight cut down the side of my cheekbones. Then, I just go around my cheek bones and little bit on my hair line and top of my forehead. Last is the highlighter which I put on the tip of my nose, top of my lip, cheek bones, top of my eyebrows and the bridge of my nose. Sometimes I just use gold or I use my pink and gold eyeshadow like blush (as seen in my look below). Here’s a before and after!

Sequin Sweater @ H&M $49.99

It got randomly super cold on Monday, so I had to break out my sweater gear (aka the two sweaters I have rn). I wore this to work and I got so many compliments on it?? Like out of the blue. It’s so cozy, cute and definitely has like an 80’s vibe to it? or maybe thats just me.

Slip-on Mule Loafers by LUSTHAVE on Amazon $24.99

I saw something similar to this on a boutique’s instagram and almost bought them. But then I realized I could probably get them for cheaper on Amazon and so I did lol. Blush is the new fall color (in case you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t know) and these are perfect. I wear so much back and these are great just the break it up and look like I know that other colors exist in the world.

Okay FORGET what I said about the last oatmeal I posted about, like g-bye, cause this one is 10,000 times better. I got the blueberry kind and I’m sorry but I can only find it at whole foods. It takes amazing and very filling while also being gluten free! ANNDDD it has flax seeds which are amazing for digestion. Only downside is I can only find it at whole foods. Sorry guys.

One of the hardest things about trying to stay in shape is getting up on the weekends and working out. My mind says “do it and you’ll feel better!” but my body says “sleep in and then eat cereal cause its Saturday and who cares.” Saturday I thankfully listened to my brain (although my body almost won) and worked out BEFORE my giant cappuccino. This workout was quick, but still kicked my butt which you guys know is my favorite thing. Not too much jumping and craziness either which is good because my place is small and I hate making a bunch of noise. One of the best things was when the girl was “like ugh I can’t go any faster” and I was like yes girl same #relatable. I burned about 150 calories according to my Apple watch in 20 minutes which is amazing.

Wuthering Heights

I started reading this because my cousin said it was her favorite book and tbh I need to read more classics but I finished it and was like ?????? thats it???? It’s probably one of these books you just really need to take a class on or something not just read and never look at again. I really only liked the Narrator and wish they would’ve gone a different direction with him, honestly. Everyone was whiny and mean because of Heathcliff making everyone sad and miserable. Not my thing.

Dirty John on Spotify 

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

My coworker suggested this at work the other day and I LOVEEEEEDD it. It’s about this con man who’s super scary and manipulate women for money among other things and the end is just like woah. It’s only 6 episodes and I finished it in a day because it was amazing. It has real interviews from the people who experienced it which is so cool. Definitely recommend if you like crime or serial killers or just crazies fascinate you lol.

Gerald’s Game on Netflix

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

I was attempting to get into the Halloween vibes the other day and stubbled across this while going through my Netflix. Its based off of a Stephen King book of the same name and it was actually really good and freaky without scaring the shit out of me like his stupid IT movies. Its about this woman whose husband handcuffs her to the bed and then proceeds to literally die on top of her which is now a fear of mine lol. It was really good and something I feel like I usually wouldn’t watch or something thats super well-known.

So last weekend I had to get anew phone because mine finally had enough of me dropping it. I got the iPhone 7 plus and I love it. The pictures are ah-mazing and its huge but in a good way. Saturday I got to look at what my life would be like if I made real people money here lol. My friend somehow got the keys to her bosses apartment since she’s out of town and her view and her bed and everything about this place was so cute. Then we went to this singles mixer which was funny cause it was mostly old weird dudes  of course. The only decent guy there was a British dude and I was VERRRY upset that some other girl had already claimed him. (he was only really cute in comparison to all the other weird-looking dudes). Don’t judge my arm idk why kept doing that in every picture sheesh.

Sunday I had to move out of my apartment and that was such a mess. I applied for a place that I guess rejected me? Still don’t even know. So I had to find a place literally on the fly. Ended up staying at an AirBnB that was so cute and quiet. I recommend for sure. Then from there I moved my stuff to my new place. It’s another temporary place, but its cheaper, nicer and I’m renting it for longer because I refuse to move my stuff again in the winter. Here’s a couple pics of my new place!

I’ll post some of my room once I get it cute and fixed cause all of my stuff is currently just on the floor(which only stresses me out a lot).

This weekend I tried some new places that were fantastic.

Friday, I had drinks at a place called Root and Bone. It’s in the East Village area and all through the month of October their happy hour proceeds benefit Puerto Rico with is cool. I got some really great wine and a chicken biscuit (not part of my vegetarian lifestyle lol).

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

Also they opened a fricken Target on 34th street and so obviously I had to go immediately. Kind of a small Target but hey it’s still Target. I got some stuff to decorate for fall and this super good smelling candle and my cold, black, fall loving heart is swooning.

Saturday, I went to this place I’ve been wanting to try since I saw and Insider New York video about it and it looked amazing and good, We only managed to get a table cause some crazy people didn’t show up for their reservations (thank you so much random people). It was packed for a very good reason. The best Mac and Cheese I have ever had. Not even being dramatic. So amazing. One of those places I recommend hitting if you ever come to NYC. It’s right in the heart of Greenwich Village (which I have been pronouncing green-witch no joke how awful), and everywhere you walk is so cute I was in love and actually got lost just looking everywhere and missed my turn lol.

I also finally saw the High Line, which I’d been thinking is like a dinky bridge or something but its actually amazing. So many crazy looking buildings and some apartment goals. Another recommendation if you come here.

Next we went to Legends to watch LSU play and they kicked some butt. After a few hurricanes, we ended up going out to this place that kept playing like old 90’s and ’00 hits and I was jammin. We ended up staying out till 3:30 and I didn’t even notice the time until someone said something about it. Like I’m turing into a night owl somehow and its weird? I’m so used to being the first one to leave a bar, but NYC seems to have the opposite effect. So much fun.

I said this blog wasn’t gonna be a diary but look at me talking about my life like I’m important lol.

Your Weekly Vibes

So I blogged at a new spot today in SoHo aka my favorite area lol. Ate the best cupcakes at Molly’s Cupcakes. Like better than Magnolia, seriously. (ps not vegan just good lol).

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray on Amazon $5.91 (2 OZ)

I used to use this sea salt spray from lush that was, I wanna say $15? And when I asked the girl like “hey will this actually give me wavy hair? Like my hair never does that.” She was like “oh yeah totally.” Of course it didn’t and I’m annoyed that she pretended it would. At the same time, how would she know but still. Don’t advocate for things you don’t believe in sheesh. So I used that for a while and liked it okay but after I ran out, I just never got any more of it. I bought this one cause it has some pretty decent reviews and it smelled really good. I’ve given up on finding anything that makes my stick-straight hair wave, HOWEVER, this stuff makes my hair smell so good. When my hair dries, it dies. Its soon flat and feels thin i don’t know why. But this stuff give it life and not a bunch, but a perfect amount of soft volume.

Nexxus Shampoo Emergencee Conditioner on Amazon $16.97

Okay I got this at CVS for too much money and turns out its half that on Amazon ugh. Anyway, I mostly get this because it smells like, actually candy heaven. I feel like after I wash my hair I smell like an expensive goddess who wears like Gucci or something. I would say using this on top of the sea salt spray above leaves me with #hairsmellgoals

Unisa Caytea Velvet Bootie @ DSW $49.99

I just got these cuutteeeee lil booties the other day at DSW cause I have been dying for tiny heeled booties (also note they are called cayteas lol). These KILLEDDDDD my feet the first time I wore them because I have giant gorilla feet and really needed to break them in, so don’t try to wear them all night the first time you wear them lol. I walk everywhere in New York cause I just love looking around the city (and kinda hate the unpredictable train) so finding good shoes that are cute, don’t hurt my feet and aren’t sneakers is so hard. Tbh after a while even my sneakers start to rub. These are so cute because they have a subtle design, they’re flat and closed toe. I’ve already wore them way too much they are now my go-to shoes.

In my attempt to find overnight oats at whole foods, I failed, but I failed upwards in that this stuff is so good. It’s gluten free, vegan, and still super tasty. I added a banana cause I’ve been eating this like a bunnnccchh lately. It says you can put cold water in it but uh I recommend regular hot water cause cold sounds gross. I’ve been on a oatmeal kick and this makes it easy, no spices or sugar needed.

Heads up!!! PSA!!!!! Pure Barre is doing your first week free ladies!!!! Yeah literally a week of classes for free! I scheduled one every single day next week lol!!! Anyway, I was supposed to do this on Saturday but I was a little tired (and hungover) and rescheduled to Sunday where I vowed to get my life together. Okay so going in she was like, “just a heads up you’re gonna be overwhelmed cause we go super fast just try to listen to me instead of looking other people.” My visual-learner-havin-ass was like oh okay sure. So she was 100% right, it was fast as shit. She said to listen to her, but like most workout classes, they gonna play rave-y EDM music during the entire thing, so I could barely hear her. All in all, however I got a really good workout in. I like the combo of Barre and pilates. My body will most definitely be sore tomorrow (and all of the rest of next week because I signed up for everyday lol).

I’ve been listening to podcasts while at work these days because It calms me and makes the day go faster, I was trying to find one I liked as much as Pod Save America and was failing horribly. Most of the comedy ones were just comedians talking to themselves which is really strange to me or they would just be soo boring that I didn’t wanna listen anymore. I finally started listening to this one and fell in looovvveeeee. I know yawl all probably think I’m a serial killer now, but I promise its so fascinating knowing how these  murders thought, their lives, and how they got to where they are. (okay yeah that sounds weird to be into lol). Listen to one and I swear you’ll believe me,

Un-Success of the Week√

So the only thing I could think of for this was me getting hit(or pushed, nudged?) by a car this week looking at apartments. I’m totally fine btw, but this dude like was not paying attention and like kinda shoved me with his car. I had the right of way cause the little light thing was telling me to go so if I would’ve died I could totally haunt his ass and be justified. I didn’t fall or anything, but obviously my heart came out of my mouth and screamed for dear life like “omg i’ve barely lived plz no!!!” I then proceeded to have, what can only be described as an “adrenaline black out while being awake” and cursed this guy into the next century (i would never do that in my normal life so thats why I say I must have blacked out). Also if you tell this story to your mom, she’ll just say oh my god in a worried tone whereas your friends will laugh hysterically. I will definitely be paying attention more when crossing the street (apparently even crosswalkers need to be on defense who knew).
