I came across some old memory cards that I forgot I had and found a ton of cute pictures. I figured it would be fun to take it back for #FlashbackFriday. 

This was one of my last days in high school. Lunch time was the best time. 

Tuesday, June 27, 2017


This post is for all of my fellow PLL viewers. I just finished watching the finale and...

First off, I would like to say that I'm sad it's over but also very happy. This show has been on for 7 years and I've been keeping up with it... the whole time!! I started watching this show when I was 19, which is crazy because I'm 26 now!!! Let me fill you in on my thoughts and if you watched it tonight, I want you to leave yours as well. 

The finale was good at certain points but overall was very underwhelming. I feel like it really didn't answer any questions for me. Like, how did those moms really get out of the basement? If Spencer's twin (Alex) is A.D, why was she torturing everyone who wasn't even related to her? I could see her only torturing her family, but what did everyone else have to do with her problems? Who killed Maya? Was it Alex? If so, why? Where was Aria's brother? Why did she kidnap Ezra at the end? What was the point of making Alison carry Emily and Wren's babies? After years of crimes, everyone just got away with everything? Mona had Mary Drake locked up with Alex at the end? Why? Was Mary Drake really evil, good, or just twisted. I'm just overall confused. For an episode we have been waiting for, it could have been way better. I feel like they kind of wasted the first hour with unnecessary scenes and then tried to cram everything in the last hour, especially the last 30 minutes. Was I surprised Spencer had a twin? Yes and no. People were already calling it, that Spencer would have a twin but I didn't know if she would actually have one or not. So when the twin came on the scene, the shock factor was at a low but still sort of there. So on a scale from 1-10, I was probably on a 5 shock factor. Melissa being home in the beginning was weird and her character was always sketchy to me, but I knew her being A.D would be too obvious. I wish they would have gone into detail about how she was able to do all of those things. And maybe they did, but her "accent" was throwing me all off. If any of you can explain some of these things to me, then please do so in the comments. 

How funny was that scene at Aria's wedding when the phone was going off and it was the creator's. 

Oh, and how many of y'all rolled your eyes at the very last scene with the little girls. 

I have always been a HUGE fan of this show and it has been one of the greatest shows I have ever seen. However, I must say, I am happy that it's over. 

What questions do you have? Do you have some of these answers? Chat with me in the comments below!

Late Night Thoughts With Miracle #2: TV, Music, Pet Peeve.

Hey y'all! 

I'm back with a 'late night thoughts' post. I got a lot of positive feedback on the last one so I figured I would keep it going. It's Monday, 11:05 pm, not exactly late (for me) but late enough. It's raining right now and I am loving it!! It's giving me total relaxation vibes. It could rain everyday and I wouldn't be upset. 

I just finished watching the Bachelorette. I am digging this show. Do any of y'all watch it? I could never get into it before but I really like Rachel and her (hot mess) selection of guys. If you watch it, comment below who you think will win or at least make it to the end. I think Peter, Brian, and Dean are making it to the end. My niece keeps telling me I should be on that show. I don't know who she think I am. I do not have the time for all of that foolery. Would you ever be on the Bachelor or the Bachelorette? 

Can we just take a second to acknowledge the queen Lorde has blessed us with a new album. Finally! I've been waiting FOREVER for this thing. I haven't had a chance to properly listen to it the way I would have liked but I have listened to it briefly. So far, my favs from the album are Greenlight, Sober, Homemade Dynamite, The Louvre, Hard Feelings, and Perfect Places. That's basically the album lol. I already know once I fully sit down and listen to the whole thing I'm going to have it on repeat. I always say her first album is a classic because I have listened to the album on repeat since it came out and I'm still not tired of it. It's so good, you don't have to skip any songs on it either. I'm pretty sure this new album will be the same way. I think a lot of people overlook her because they think she's weird but she's really talented. I don't know what made me listen to her first album in 2013 but I'm glad I did. I'm a fan! Her song Hard Feelings is perfection on this new album. From her voice to the sounds  especially towards the end. yass! I can't wait to listen to the whole thing without being interrupted. Question: do you think Lorde is pop or alternative? I keep thinking she is alternative. She's even listed as alternative on iTunes but most people say she's pop so I don't know. 

I was watching QVC and this dude was trying to sell his makeup. Why sell foundation if you only have like 5 shades? I just don't understand that. It's like that other places as well. A company will sell foundation shades in fair, light, medium, tan, and deep. Like what? That's crazy to me. Does that bug anyone else but me? 

What I like about these posts is that it allows for me to say what's on my mind, whether it's serious or lighthearted. Let me know what's on your mind tonight? Don't be shy, leave me a comment.

Bringing Back A Childhood Toy

If you could bring back one toy from your childhood, what would it be? 

I would bring back the Bratz dolls. I'm pretty sure they stopped making those a couple of years ago. I haven't been seeing them in stores but back in the day, they were POPPIN!! And can I just say, they used to slay my life with their commercials. I loved those dolls! I loved the hair styles, the fashion, the makeup... I literally wanted to be a bratz doll!! Now that I'm older some people actually tell me that I look like a bratz doll. I hope that's not their subtle way of telling me I have a big head. 
The only thing I didn't like about Bratz dolls were that they had no feet. As a child, I always thought that was the weirdest thing. 

Leave me a comment letting me know what childhood toy(s) you would bring back.

Stuffed Zucchini Boats

One of my favorite vegetables is Zucchini. It's so versatile and you can manipulate it to become whatever dish you want it to become. From noodles and pizza bites to "fries", it really is amazing what you can do with zucchini; not to mention it's freakin' delicious!! 

I love making zucchini boats. They are so good and the family loves them too. Click on the video and if you like what you see then click 'READ MORE' for the recipe. (Watch in HD)

Unusual Asks

Hey everyone!!

I had seen this tag online called unusual asks and it looked pretty interesting so I decided to do it, especially since my 'would you rather' post was pretty popular (views wise).

1. What did you want to be when you were a kid?
-At one point I wanted to be a teacher but that quickly changed.

2. Which "Friends" character do you relate to the most?
-I've only seen Friends a couple of times so I wouldn't know. I don't even know the characters' names honestly.

3. Do you like your name? Why?
-Yes, because it's pretty unique.

4. Are you a messy or clean person?
-The older I get the cleaner I become. I hate a dirty room.

5. How tall are you?

6. How tall were you when you were ten?
-I don't know.

My ANTI-Bucket List | 10 Things I Would NEVER Do

A bucket list is a list that consists of things a person wants to do at some point in their life. Well an anti-bucket list (I made up this name) is something that I NEVER want to do, ever. With that being said, here are 10 things that I would never do. I know there's the phrase "never say never" but I'm pretty sure, I would never do these things. 

1. Sky Dive. 
Related image

2. Watch Star Wars. I can never bring myself to actually watch it. Everything about it seems boring. NEXT!

3. Tattoos. I like tattoos for other people but not for myself. I know that if I were to get a tattoo, I would instantly regret it. 

4. A tongue piercing. I just don't see the point. 

5. Drink a raw egg. Talk about nasty. 

6. Get breast or butt implants. I'm happy the way I am!

7. Eat my placenta. Some women eat their own placenta after they have given birth to lower chances of postpartum depression and to increase their energy levels and milk quantities. HOWEVERRRRR.... will I be eating my own? Yeah I think NOT. 

8. Go camping. I am not an outdoorsy person. I'll camp inside the house though! 

9. Bungee Jump. 

10. Eat frog legs. Oh HECK no! 

What are some things you would never do? Leave them in the comments below!

...But Mom! Looking Dirty Is Cool Now!

Nordstrom has these barracuda straight leg jeans on their website and they're covered in fake mud. Yep! Fake mud. Like what? 

Here's the description for these jeans:
"Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that's seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you're not afraid to get down and dirty."

The jeans run for 425 dollars and the matching jacket runs for 425 dollars as well.

Is this trendy? Would you wear this?

Would You Rather

Dun Dun DUNNNNNN! This could be dangerous! 

So I asked everyone (on different social media platforms) to send me would you rather questions. I've somehow managed to get 10 so here are my answers!!! 

1. Would you rather lay in a bed full of frogs or swim with snakes?
Answer: I am deathly afraid of frogs so I would have to choose swimming with snakes... even though I'm afraid of them too. smh. 

2. Would you rather eat chocolate that taste like brains or brains that tastes like chocolate? 
Answer: Easy! I would definitely eat brains that taste like chocolate. 

3. Would you rather lick someones feet that work at a water treatment plant and don't wear shoes or drink a bottle of baby pee and poop?
Answer: *gags* I would lick the feet. 

4. Would you rather poop from your mouth or pee through your eyes? 
Answer: There is no way I'm pooping from my mouth, so I choose peeing through my eyes. 

5. Would you rather eat your hair or your toenails? 
Answer: I would eat my toenails. 

6. Would you rather drink for the rest of your life or eat for the rest of your life?
Answer: I would rather drink for the rest of my life. If I eat all my life I'll end up thirsty. If I had to drink I would make thicker smoothies that would give me the same satisfaction as eating. That's my logic lol

7. Would you rather melt or burn candles?
Answer: Burn candles. I love the aesthetic. 

8. Would you rather use Yankee or Bath and Body Works? 
Answer: Definitely Bath and Body Works. Yankee is too unscented for me. 

9. Would you rather only buy candles you kind of like with a coupon or only buy candles you love for full price?
Answer: As much as I love buying on a budget I would choose buying candles that I love at full price. I feel as though it's a waste of money to buy something I sorta like. 

10. In the middle of a super crowded Bath and Body Works, would you rather drop a candle or knock over a display of body care?
Answer: Yikes!! I'm someone who gets easily embarrassed so I don't like either lol. I would choose knocking over a display of body care. At least it would be easy clean up. 

Thank you Ariel, Will, Shay, Carcelius, Kayla, Side_Wick, and Threewickupdates for the questions!!!

Late Night Thoughts With Miracle #1: My Birthday

           Do you ever find yourself staying up late and just getting lost in [deep] thoughts? I do this quite often. I think about a lot of things late at night; my past, my present, but especially my future. (It's currently 2:18 am by the way) Now normally this would be something that I would write down in my daily journal but I figured it could make for an interesting blog post instead. 
         My birthday is coming up and I'm turning 26... Dun Dun DUNNNNNNNN!!! I'm blessed to make it to 26. I have had a couple of friends who unfortunately passed before reaching this age so I'm thankful. However, I can't help but to feel kind of old. I'll be 26! Like..................... that's literally almost 30. Yikes. I can't even imagine. I remember being a teenager and thinking 30 was so far away and kind of old. HA! I'm about 30 and I wondering where the time went.
         I was talking to my niece the other day and boy, can she talk a lot. We were talking about my birthday and she asked me something that really had me thinking. She asked, "Miracle, why aren't birthdays our own personal new years?" And I'm like... huh? And she says, "Why do we make resolutions and try so hard to start over on Jan 1? Shouldn't we do that on our birthdays, when it's a new year of age and growth for each of us?" I'm not sure if those were her exact words but the way she said it made so much sense. It's also crazy that she actually mentioned that as I was already thinking about everything that I wanted to do once I turned 26. I'm feeling very determined and motivated this year. I want my year of being 26 to be different from my year of being 25, 24, or 23.
         I have goals that I would like to accomplish my 26th year. I really want a second job, I have been job hunting for a while now so hopefully I can land one soon. Also, I want to finish my master's program strong with nothing but A's. My initial goal was to graduate with honors but I already have 2 B's so that goal is an epic fail. I'm still proud of myself and even though I may not graduate with honors, my GPA is still pretty high. Another goal is to post more on my blog. I have a schedule of Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays but sometimes I'll skip a day if I'm not feeling inspired. Let me know what kind of posts you are interested in. I had been asked to review movies and make challenge/haul videos. The videos, I can do but I rarely watch movies nowadays. It's hard for me to sit through them. I guess that's what happens when you get old. 

What's been on your mind lately? Lets chat in the comments below.

Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino!!!

Starbucks has recently released their newest frappuccino and it is all the rage! It's called the Unicorn Frappuccino. As do most people, I love anything involving  unicorns and rainbows so I had to try it out for myself. Starbucks describes this drink as "magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour." One ingredient for this drink is mango syrup so I am assuming this drink is supposed to taste like mango. I am going to tell you what I think this drink really tastes like. The description is correct, the drink does go from sweet to sour. When I first tried it, it tasted like an orange creamsicle. After a while, once I reached the blue part of the drink, it started tasting like sour patch kids candy. It's a very cool drink and totally unexpected. I was expecting it to taste like strawberries/raspberries or cotton candy. I would highly recommend trying it at least once. Rating: I would give it an 8.5/9 out of 10.  This drink is only available in the U.S, Canada, and Mexico. The Unicorn Frappuccino is only out for a few more days so try it before it's gone. It is definitely an experience.

15 Tips For Kicking Pollen In The Butt!

I dread the Spring because I know when the season comes so does the pollen. I have really bad allergies so not only does pollen make me feel miserable but it's annoying as well. Pollen gets everywhere! There's no escaping it! It gets all over our cars and houses, even our pets!!! Sometimes I don't even go outside because it's pure yellow out. That's madness!!
This season, I will not suffer!! I will be kicking pollen in the butt and if you have allergies, you should too!

Google Images

Here are 15 tips for surviving the pollen this season:

  1. Wear a hat or scarf on your head when going outside. You'll decrease the chances of getting pollen in your hair. 
  2. Take a shower when you get home. Avoid getting straight in the bed or couch. Wash all of the dirt and pollen off of you first. 
  3. Don't drive with the windows down. 
  4. Invest in a purifier. This will clean the air in your home, eliminating all dust and pollen. 
  5. Do not hang your clothes or rugs outside to dry. 
  6. Keep your pets wiped down or bathed as much as possible. They will bring a lot of pollen back inside the home. 
  7. Avoid being outside during high pollen count days. The news will tell when these days are. 
  8. Avoid being outside during windy days. All of that pollen floating in the wind is a disaster! 
  9. Keep your hair washed often if you can. 
  10. Avoid opening windows in your home. That spring breeze may feel good but it'll only be bringing in pollen into your home. 
  11. If you wear contacts, try wearing your glasses more often. Pollen can get in your contacts, making your eyes feel extra itchy and irritated. 
  12. Wear a mask that can cover your nose and mouth. 
  13. Find some medication that will work for you such as Benadryl or Claritin. 
  14. Gargle salt water. It helps soothe a sore throat. 
  15. Don't wear the same clothes that you wore outside inside. If you don't want to take a shower, at least take off the clothes you had on earlier. It will contaminate everything else in the house with pollen.

My Top 5 Life OBSESSIONS 😍

1. I LOVE flowers. I have a few favorites: roses, tulips, sunflowers, peonies, and hydrangeas. Just looking at them instantly makes me happier. These are my mom's birthday flowers. Aren't they gorgeous?! If it were up to me, I would have flowers [literally] all over the house!

2. I am obsessed with book stores. I love the quiet atmosphere and getting lost in thousands of books. Books-A-Million is one of my favorite places to go. I could spend the whole day there.

3. Coffee/Coffee Shops/Starbucks. Not only do I love the taste of coffee but I like the aroma and the warmth it provides. And nothing is more satisfying than walking into Starbucks and smelling all of that delicious coffee.

4. Arts and Crafts/Stationary. I love shopping for crafts and stationary. Lately I've been into painting. It's so fun and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new [relaxing] hobby. I've also been into planners and stickers, but then again, I have always been into those 2 things.

5. My Bible. I purchased a new bible not too long ago so I could get into bible journaling. I've found myself not even journaling but just reading it and I'm really enjoying it.

My Go-To Green Juice 🍏

I love my green juices but sometimes I don't love making them. I have a cold pressed juicer which is amazing however it runs very sloooowww. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to make one. But lately, I've been juicing up a storm. I love having a juice in the early afternoon. It's the perfect pick me up. You know how they say an apple gives you sooooo much energy, well "issa" lie! Now a green juice does give you energy. It's so great for when you are feeling sluggish, I swear by it!  

Here's the green juice that I've been making lately:

1 apple

4 celery sticks

2 lemons

Spinach, Romaine lettuce, and kale (handful each)

1 large cucumber 

This is my photo. 

This is the combination that I usually go for. I like it the most because it isn't a sweet juice but it isn't bland or sour either. 

Comment of the day
What's your favorite juice or smoothie recipe?

The Benefits of Smiling 😀

*Photo of my cousin Jaidus. How cute was he lol

Most people don't really think about smiling, it's just something they either do or don't do. Well, did you know there are actual benefits to smiling? Not only does smiling make you feel good but it also adds years to your life. Yes! Crazy right? 

Our bodies release endorphins when we smile, which is a chemical that makes us happier. By releasing endorphins we are also able to decrease stress and anxiety. 

Smiling also increases the strength of our immune systems and is a natural anti-depressant. 

So turn that frown upside down and keep on smiling.

Fruit Infused Water 💦

Let's just be real here, water is plain and boring. Drinking it can be tough especially if you are trying to consume your recommended daily intake. My favorite thing to do is to infuse my water with fruit. When my water is infused, I manage to drink three times as much water than I would otherwise. This is what my water looks like today:

Simply, lemon and strawberries. I love strawberries in my water. If you can't handle the sourness of lemon water then add in a few strawberries. It balances with the tartness. Another combination that I swear by is strawberry and mint.

We all know the benefits of drinking water right? By drinking water you are fighting off diseases and illnesses, flushing out toxins, creating better digestion, etc. But by adding in fruit, you are adding in extra nutrients to your water. The fruit will provide extra vitamins and minerals that the water didn't even have before.

So if you find yourself not being able to drink enough water, just do what I do and chuck a bunch of fruit in it!! Happy Drinking.

10 Ways To Declutter Your Mind

Declutter-to remove unnecessary items from an untidy or overcrowded place. 

While it is good to declutter our closets every once in a while or our kitchen pantries, it is also important to declutter our minds. A cluttered mind is filled with thoughts, stress, worry, and more. Being mentally cluttered is never a good thing; it can change the way we function or send us in a downward spiral. 

Below are ten ways to declutter your mind: 

1. Make sure the space around you is clean. This doesn't mean that you have to declutter your space and throw everything out. Just make sure your area is clean and tidy.  

2. Start a Journal. This is a good way of releasing thoughts and feelings whether good or bad, instead of keeping them inside. When you're finished writing, it will feel as though a weight has been lifted. 

3. Watch less T.V. It has already been proven that television messes with our brains. 

4. Go outside. Being outside can be quite relaxing... especially in the mornings, sitting on the porch with a nice hot cup of coffee.

5. Exercise or Yoga. Exercising is an amazing way to clear your head. When you exercise your body releases endorphins which reduces your perception of pain and makes you feel good. So it's a great way to release stress, anxiety, and anger.

6. Stop Overextending Yourself. Take care of yourself before you take care of others. Never saying no and always doing things for other people will eventually create stress in your life, that could end up affecting your health. Practice having "me" time.

7. Laugh. Laughing is the best way to release stress. Tell a joke, hang out with some good (Funny) friends, read a funny book. 

8. Do something simple but fun. You could do a puzzle, play the bubble shooter app (I'm currently addicted by the way!), draw or color. 

9. Do Not Multitask. Trying to do so many things at one time can create a lot of stress. Focus on one task at a time. 

10. Relax. Take a hot bubble bath with a few candles lit. Meditate. Treat yourself to a massage.

My First Makeup Party Featuring Mary Kay

Yesterday I attended my very first makeup party and I must say, I had a good ol time. There was makeup and food... what more could a girl ask for? Our host was Helen and our consultant was Susan. First, Susan had us to try a few hand products and then we tried a lip scrub and balm. Then we each tried skin care products catered to our skin types. I tried the TimeWise Miracle Set for normal to dry skin and I LOVED it. I would recommend that to anyone with dry skin. It's so luxurious. 

Afterwards we tried on the makeup. I ended up getting a CC cream in the shade Deep, a free hand cream, a lip scrub, and a lip balm. I liked everything! If you ever get the chance to go to a Mary Kay makeup party definitely attend. It's a lot of fun. Thank you Mrs. Helen and Susan. 

By the way, I left my camera at home so here are some cell phone shots. 

Susan, the consultant. 

The mirror and tray set for sampling products.  
What I ended up with. 

Satin Hands hand cream, Satin Lips shea sugar scrub, and Satin Lips shea butter lip balm

CC cream in "Deep"

Y'all know I'm a foodie and had to take pictures! 

Have you tried Mary Kay products before?

Kale Salad

A lot of people are turned off by kale as soon as they see it. I don't know why, it really is tasty once you jazz it up a bit. Kale is high in vitamins K, A, and C. It is a good source of iron and full of antioxidants. 

In order to enjoy kale as a salad, you really should massage it before you eat me. Massage it for a few minutes until it reduces in size. Kale is naturally tough but once you massage it, it becomes nice and soft. You can use olive oil, salt, and pepper, or your dressing of choice.
Here's the kale salad that I've been making lately: 
-Massaged kale w/ olive oil, salt, and pepper (to taste)
-Chopped onions
-Carrot shavings 
-Sweetened almond shavings 
This combination is so delicious that there is no need for any salad dressing.

Superbowl Snack Idea #3:

Here's a simple dip recipe that is perfect for a super bowl party. 

3 packs of bacon (or more) 
4 bundles of green onions 
(2) 24 oz tubs of sour cream
6 cups (or more) of cheddar cheese
1 cup of bacon bits 
Pepper and Paprika to taste
Plain Lays Chips or Crackers (I prefer chips)

Mix in a large bowl the sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, pepper, and paprika. Then place in the refrigerator. 
Fry and drain bacon. Once it cools, chop it as fine as you can. 
On your platter of choice, mold the sour cream mixture into the shape of a football. 
Cover it with all of the bacon.
I used some left over dip to pipe football lines on top of the dip. 
Place green onions around the football to act as the grass. 
Grab your chips or crackers and dip baby dip!
