My Favorite Meal of the Day

Hello Everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful morning. Mine is. I always love when I can wake up early and make my breakfast. This is really the most important meal of the day and my favorite I must say. My favorite plate consists of two eggs, 3 small pancakes with light aunt jemihma syrup, and a nice side of blackberries and strawberries. I have been trying to eat as good or at least as fresh as possible to help my minor skin problem that has been getting to me. This past semester when I was full of stress I was eating out a lot and nothing was good for me. It had an affect on my skin which I never had a problem about until then. That saying ‘you are what you eat’ is slightly true. Well, it is completely true. So I thought I would go into the new year and do something about it rather than complain how this has never happened to me. It has ad now I’m dealing with it:) It is all up to me. Graduation is my motivation, I want to look as fabulous as possible on that day and walking down that stage! Haha I am going to share with you any tasty healthy meals I eat or have eaten at places in case you would like to try them.

Until next time!

Sunday Outing- Japanese Tea Garden

Hello Everyone! Yesterday I was really in the mood to take photographs, so my roommate suggested that I go to the Japanese Tea Garden. I had never been, I had no idea what to expect. These are some of the photos I took. Not many I must say, there were way too many people in this little area I could not take too many without having random people in them. I really enjoy taking photos of nature because it is very relaxing for me.

Until next time!

Fashion Picks from Golden Globe Awards

Hello Everyone! First of all I would just like to say HAPPY MLK DAY!! This is a wonderful holiday dedicated to service, I always love helping others so this is not the only day I dedicate to that. Take some time today to reflect on your life and think about how good you actually have it- even if you don’t think so- compared to others in the past.

Sooo yesterday award season started, the Golden Globe Awards was on NBC last night. This was the first time in a long time that I actually watched it. I usually end up just reading about it or hearing about the fashion from the night but this time I wanted to see it myself and see what crazy things happen during the night. Ricky Gervais was funny but not as intense as I presume he was last year. Anyways, on the the fashion.

I loved some of the dresses that were worn by some of the nominees and winners. There were many celebs that I did not see until this morning on websites. One group in particular the Glee clan. There were a lot of strapless and mermaid dresses. There were some I loved and some I wasn’t that crazy about as much as some people were. Not very many bright colors. My favorites of the night were Sofia Vergara in a navy Vera wANG strapless mermaid silhouette gown which looked beautiful with her skin tone and amazing curvy body and Michelle Williams in a navy, fitted, long sleeve embellished custom Jason Wu (I am excited to see what he had designed for his target collection which launches in February!!) , and Rooney Mara in a black gown that suited her pale skin tone and simple tied back black hair, Selma Hayek looked sexy with her beaded gold and back fitted strapless dress and Claire Danes in her black and white fitted with slight detail on the sleeves and waistline. Those five dresses had to be some of my personal favorites from head to toe for the night. They all looked stunning wore their dresses perfectly. Some of my other favorites were Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda who never fail to look amazing at any age!

Well hope your Monday continues to be as wonderful and maybe relaxing as mine has been!

Until next time!

New Year, New Beginnings!

Hello everyone! I know I have not posted anything for almost a year but that is going to change- I promise! 2011 was an amazing one for me, I must say. London was the highlight of my 2011- and my life, thus far! I know there will be many more to come and I will certainly keep you up to date with everything. Last Spring I was abroad in London and I meant to post blogs of my time there thru primafashionista but I ended up doing one for my school while I was there which you can find at, http://profile.typepad.com/heatherkmartinez. I spent much time and effort on that blog to help share as much with those who read it. I love sharing my stories and adventures from London anytime so feel free to ask or just check out my other blog to see what I was up to in the UK. But anyways, that was last year and I am going to make sure this year is just as amazing!

Graduation is coming close, this is my last semester which looks like it is going to be a relaxing one. Last semester I gave myself the challenge of completing 18hrs for my first time in my college life! Way to intense and stressful. It was full of so many group projects. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy working groups and collaborating with other students but when I have six major projects at once, it can be extremely stressful. I love getting things done effectively and efficiently so that was a challenge especially when many people in college have jobs outside of school. Meeting with people to work on these projects was very difficult and I am so happy that I completed the semester and with five A’s and one B. Quite an accomplishment. Good way to end 2011.

Man I must say I did miss blogging. After I got back I was back to working during the summer, working on a project for the scholarship I had received for study abroad, and then that crazy semester left me with little me time. The time I did have available was my family, friends, and exercise time. I am making a promise to myself have it all. I am going to blog about everything and anything. Food, exercise, FASHION, life, culture, career and school. I promise!

Well it is definitely  good to be back, I am looking forward to another year full of more wonderful memories and new adventures.

Until next time!
