I have come to the conclusion that Adnan is innocent and there has not been a podcast, interview, comment or thread that has swayed me from that belief.
I’ve heard opinions that Sarah Koenig and the Serial team have shown bias. “Jay was painted a criminal while Adnan was strongly favored in the series” and I overall disagree with these opinions. By the end of episode 12 I feel like we are left to consider that either Adnan is guilty or has really bad luck. This did not sit well with me. Contrary to what many believe I thought Serial was the hardest on Adnan.

It made my Sunday night to see RED on the Red Carpet of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. My top three picks at the 2011 Oscars all donned this hue and looked stunning.
- Jennifer Lawrence: Nominated for best actress in a leading role for Winter’s Bone. I have to admit I had no idea who Jennifer Lawrence was until I watched the Oscars. Simply put; she is gorgeous. This dress was my favorite. I am such a fan of the simple elegance this dress exudes. Continue reading

Is it even believable that you can wear jeans and have the same comfort you would if you were wearing sweatpants? The new craze on the news and internet is Pajama Jeans. According to the official website, Pajama Jeans: “look like denim….but feel like PJ’s.” During my research for this blog, I have yet to find a celebrity photoed in the web-popular PJ Jeans; which leads me to believe this may be a fashion faux pas. I wouldn’t knock anyone if they wanted to try them though. I am a fan of anything comfy, but I am anti-expanding waistlines. I stand by a theory I came up with when I was a sophomore in highschool, “If you buy bigger pants for yourself, you will eventually grow into them.” Its a pretty blunt theory and is totally based upon my mediocre intelligence. If you buy a size 6 pair of pants and you are size 2, you will eventually be a size 6. Call me crazy, loopy or dumb, but when I could fit into a size 3 Freshman year I would stay conscious of fitting into them, when the “baggy jean” style was in I got 2 sizes to big and it took a year to fit into them.
This brings me to my next denim counterfeit product: Jeggings are the farthest thing from “cheesy” and they’ve been on legs since late 2009 and don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. In my opinion, the more realistic your jeggings are to real jeans, the better! I realize for those of us who aren’t as small as Taylor Swift may be weary of these, but let me tell you: You can rock them! If I can, you can. You can find these at Old Navy for as little as $4.00 (on clearance) a pair. You may as well give it a shot. My new favorite jeggings are in gray pictured below. I match it with a long black tank & cardigan & black knee high motorcyle boots. A very cute look!

8 months after having my 1st child, I am actually at the same weight I was when I was 8 months pregnant. I wish the lbs. would’ve melted off right after having my baby girl, but I actually ended up gaining more weight after Reese Marie was born. It has been a constant struggle to eat right and work out. I am sick of the same old 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes on the treadmill and it wasn’t doing anything!! My friend a co-blogger on this site: Fabiola introduced me to Zumba at our gym: XSport Fitness in Arlington Heights. Zumba is a high impact, intense cardio 1 hour workout that burns calories like crazy. It is the best cardio workout I have done in a long time and the weight I gained during pregnancy is finally starting to shed. While Zumba is high impact it is the most fun exercise I have tried in a long time. The word Zumba actually translate in Spanish to: “to move fast and have fun” I strongly urge you to visit your local gym/fitness center to see if they offer this class. You can also check out the official Zumba webpage for more information. I love, love, love this class and I can’t wait to post my results on my weight loss goal of 50lbs!!

I was born with stick straight THIN hair. When I decided to grow my hair long, it of course got on my nerves because of the limited time I had to style it and I would always end up putting it in a clip or ponytail. I was also sick of the same old hairdo when I went out (straight and parted to the side)…I needed to change it up. I went shopping at Ulta and came across a beauty tool that transformed my hair beyond recognition. It was a godsend and perfect for people like me with thin hair!
