The story of Citrus

Image

I bought the Story of Citrus dress from ModCloth on Monday!!! I can’t wait for it to arrive. The moment I saw it I had to have it. It is so unique. I think it sold out for awhile and I just got an email on Monday that it was back in stock so I had to snag it quick!!

Gum Drop

So I got this Pastel colored spray paint at the store awhile ago just in case I came across anything at the thrift store I wanted to turn into pastel sugarness. haha!! I had some things laying around that I had been meaning to gum drop up so I figured today was the day!!

Here is a super cute picture frame I got from the thrift store for a couple dollars. I would love to find a bunch more but I haven’t had much luck so far.

Here is a shelf I bought from Walmart. I think it was like 6 bucks. I found it in the bathroom section. I was looking for some storage for some of my makeup and jewelry.*The mirror is an amazing score I just got today from the thrift store ($15). Those sell at the store brand new for over $60. I have been wanting one of these mirrors for so long. I am thinking about painting it white.*

Through some trial and error I eventually got them painted…haha along with some of my stepdad’s tools. (whoops) I got a little too excited about the paint and wasn’t paying attention. Maybe he won’t notice. ; )

I will post pics once I decide what I am going to put on my shelf. Here is the finished frame. I am going to hang it on my wall my would like to put an awesome pic in it. Do you guys have any suggestions of art by someone on Etsy or another shop that I could put in my frame to hang on the wall?

Here is my first ever full body outfit post!! YEAH TO ME!!! I finally learned that my camera does have a self timer. haha I got this new dress yesterday at Target and I was just playing around with my camera and I thought “hey the lighting sucks because it was dark out but that is a really good pic of myself so why not just start now and post it.” So that is me!!!

If your curious..which I always am. I mean I look at outfit posts of women and I am like what are their measurements what size do they wear how will that look on me?! Well here you go. I am going to lay it all out there for you. I mean you can see the pic of me I am not perfect. If you have read my previous posts I have so far lost 56lbs. WOOHOO!! 60 more to go. Anyway here it is… as of today…haha

The largest size the dress comes in is Large. I am currently during my weight loss journey a XL. I am debating on whether I should buy it and use it as motivation “Put down that cookie!!!..so you can fit in your awesome Modcloth dress you bought.” haha What do you guys think? Have you ever bought something in hopes that one day it would fit?

Ice cream from bananas??? What? !!!

This recipe and pictures are from Shayne from Snapguide.com. It is found under “How to make healthy vegan chocolate banana ice cream.

It was super easy and I had so much fun making it…and eating it. Who needs Ice cream once you taste this. : p

Slice three large very ripe bananas...

Put them in a container and place it in the freezer for five hours or overnight. (I froze the bananas in a couple small containers since I didn't have a larger one.)

And gather your supplies...

Gather your supplies

* I use rice milk instead.

* Also instead of chocolate you could add some strawberries YUMMY!!

Put the frozen bananas in a food processor. If you don't have a food processor - a blender will probably work.

Put all the bananas in a food processor.

*I used a blender*

Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 1/3 cup of non dairy milk

Blend the mixture until it resembles soft serve ice cream. Then when it's blended add two tablespoons cocoa powder. Blend it again until the cocoa powder is mixed in.

Blend the mixture until it resembles soft serve ice cream, then add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Blend again until it is mixed in.

When it's ready the mixture should look like this. It's the texture of soft serve ice cream.

When it is ready it will look like this. Soft serve ice cream

Invite a friend over for a dish of chocolate banana ice cream. They will love you forever!

ENJOY!!!
