...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.
