This obsession of mine started in the spring and it only went downhill from there my friends.  My first pant of bright pants were blue ones only because I didn't want to just jump into colour.  I became obsessed and decided to take the plunge and bought baby pink ones and then came the neon pink.

My next mission was to find the color of summer which was mint.  I needed mint jeans so bad that I was dreaming about them and Pintrest wasn't helping at all.  Finding jeans or just pants period is a hard thing for me to do because I'm shaped quite weird.  I came across a blog post online that showed you how to dye white jeans.  Then my hunt for white jeans started.  I didn't care if they didn't fit in the leg and were to big I knew I could alter that because I'm quite a good sewer.  White jeans can be very unforgiving so even though I wanted a pair I knew that they would just look wrong.

To make a long story short I found the jeans that sort of fit (I thought I could wash them and they would fit.....I was wrong) and I altered them and died them and IT WORKED!!! I was ecstatic.

Just recently I found out old navy has jeans called rock star jeans and they fit me like a glove!  One pair turned into about 6.  They make my closet look so colorful :)

Since I now have the jeans I am determined to make them work for fall.  Pintrest is the best place to find inspiration like that.

Enjoy because I know I am.  Oh and run to old navy or online and get yours now while they are still there and on Sale to.

Day 1 of Kay-Loss

Weight loss has always been my kryptonite.  Ive never been a small girl and I have always envied those girls who can go shopping and ask the sales associate if they "have a smaller size in that" not "is the biggest size you have a Large?" (talk about embarrassing on both sides).  As I have gotten older I have learnt to accept my body and that I am never going to be a size 2 and be able to prance around in a tiny weenie polka dot bikini.  I have always been super self conscious with my mid section and I am taking all the blame for that because I don't eat the healthiest.  I always run out of the house quickly, never grabbing breakfast and thinking I will just stop of McDons and grab something which is the most unhealthiest thing you can do.  Just because I have accepted  it doesn't mean I am happy and as of last night I drew the last straw. 

We were invited to a pool party so I dusted off the box with my bathing suites in it and was surprised to find some pretty cute bathing suits I have.  I must have gained a bunch of weight from last year because these suits don't look so cute anymore and surprisingly that was my rock bottom and I decided to change my life around for the better :)

 - Ive started a weight loss Journal that I right my goals for the day and in big bold letters at the top my goal weight.  Since I am doing this on my own having a Journal will only motivate me but keep me in check.  I also HATE the gym and HATE sweating so since summer has arrived and I might have pool access water aerobics is right up my alley :)  I have also decided on a weekly goal of 5-10 lbs a week which will lead to my next point.

 - I have decided to give myself goal weight gifts.  I haven't decided what these gifts are going to be but Its going to be something along the lines of:
                                20 lbs lost - New workout gear ie. pants/shirts
                                40 lbs lost - New Runners :) Bright Nike Runners
                                60 lbs lost - ??
                                80 lbs lost - ??
                                100 lbs lost - ??
This works out great because if I loose 10 lbs a week that means my gift to myself will fall around payday and something to look forward to since I love clothes and shopping so much.

 - Food is going to be my biggest weakness.  When I get hungry I tend to forget all my healthy eating habits and get the fastest and closest thing to me which is fast food (slaps hand *bad Kayleen*).  My boyfriend and I eat alot of chicken (which I prefer) but not enough veggies.  I need to be careful because believe it or not I am allergic to raw fruits and veggies.  When I can eat certain fruits I will eat it in the bunches.  I can finish off a whole watermelon in 2 days and a bag of grapes sometimes in a day (which is gross because that stuff goes right through me).  So for today I have made a small grocery list and these are whats on it (things that I can eat raw and enjoy without feeling like I'm dieting or dieing):
                     - Water Melon
                     - Blue Berries
                    - Grapes
                    - Oranges
                    - Cucumber
                    - Red/Yellow/Green peppers
                    - Almond Milk? - Not sure about this one
                    - Tune
I have also decided to cut out all sodas and over sugerd drinks just because I have done that before and felt great!

As for before and after pictures....... Ill think about it.

OOTD: Stripes

Oh, Hello.

Its been quite awhile.  Forgive me for my absence and I don't have any excuses why I have been MIA.  I took a REALLY long break because I lost my love for blogging.  No worries though, I'm back and I'm actually have a list of things I want to post on a weekly basis so cross your fingers I actually go through with my list. 


Dress: Ross
Sweater: Gifted from my mother
Shoes: Ardene
Earings: H&M Studs
Hair: Simple Lazy Pony Tale

I knew the weather was going to be rather wet for the next couple days but I decided that now that its officially summer I cant hide my summer wardrobe just because of a little summer rain.  It may be a little wet but its rather warm at the same time so I don't see a problem.  Also I have a concert coming up in a couple days and have the perfect concert outfit that I'm just ITCHING to wear and share :)

Forgive me.

Oh hey!!!!!

Forgive my long absence from the blogging world, but I have been going through some changes in my life, most have to do with my job status.  As you remember in my last blog post I ranted and raved about my job and how much I was sick of it, blah blah blah.  Well I scored a new job (same job, new office) and leaving my current office is becoming one of the hardest things to do.  I didn't realize how much I cared for these people and how much they effected my day to day life.  Its sad really.  Its to late to turn around though and I'm ready to move forward in my life but I now know what my career path is going to be.  I'm pretty pumped about my future plans and its funny because I'm 25 years old and I'm just now deciding what my life is going to be.

So forgive me for my absence, I will be back once everything settles and I'm not so scatter brained :)

Oh, BTW Amber over at Sneakers Over Stilettos is having a Stella & Dot give away, go check it out!
I don't really enter contests but I did this one and I'm really excited about it, cross my fingers :)

Please Excuse My Rant But....

I'm not usually the type of person to rant but today is just looking like one of those days.  So bare with me, I just need to get it out before I go crazy.

1. Ive been at my job for about 3 years now and you would think that people would know your name at this point. Am I correct?  I am the front desk girl so knowing my name would be a pretty good thing to know.  Now this rant partakes to a couple people because the rest of the office people are good.  But there are a select few people who DON'T know my name....... that really grinds my gears.  To those people, I am called her, that girl, part time girl, you, or even better Jessica or Jennifer.  I don't get it.  My own boss still doesn't know my name.

2. I work with this person and this person doesn't know what personal space is and he flirts with me to get his way.  Since I am incapable of saying no to anyone I politely smile and do what I'm asked.  This person annoys me so much that the site of him, the look of him and the smell of him makes me cringe and want to vomit.  I think this is me being nice about this situation.

3.  People who have long pointless last names, that expect you to know how to spell them. 

4. My landlord for the past 3 months (we have been living there for 3 months) has been asking us for rent early which I'm pretty sure is not right and we have every right to say no but my man cannot say no so it makes it extra hard in these situations.  Just because he can afford to pay rent early doesn't mean I can.

5.  Eating to much, and just feeling like pure garbage....story of my life.  I think my eyes and brain are more hungry then my stomach.  All I want to do at the moment is lay on the floor at work take my head set and message pad and work from the floor.  Seems doable, not professional. Damn.

6.  The past couple nights as soon as 2am hits I have this HUGE urge to take a spin class or yoga class or go to the gym.  I make plans with myself that I'm going to go do that the next day.  Clearly I'm to lazy and so tired from staying up till 2 or 3 am that all I want to do is sleep and the last thing I want to do is work out. 

7.  Ordering pants online is the most frustrating thing of life.  I recently ordered white jeans and bright blue jeans from Forever 21 and I didn't know what size I wanted so I decided to order one in one size and the other in another size well it turns out the pants I was MOST excited for I have to send back in exchange for a bigger size.

This day is super frusterating so far, but on the bright side the current time is 2:34 pm which means I can go home in 2.5 hrs :)


Lately I have been feeling very blah, not wanting to do anything with myself.  I usually crave change in my life about 2 or 3 times a year, mainly when the season is about to change. So for this feeling to start this early is completely normal.  I have pretty long hair and it has zero body & volume and I want to give it a hack so bad but I know that I'm going to regret that decision since I have done it before and spent a TON of money on hair extensions.  My boyfriend would enjoy a shorter hair-do because then he wouldn't have strands of my hair in his food or somehow in his mouth.  Plus the color is just so plain and dull, I just need a change.

I came across this photo of Nina Dobrev and I fell in love with the cut & color and I'm thinking of growing my bangs out.......
