I've been doing twists in my hair for quite some time and they're in right now! Twists can range from being cute and simple to extravagant and elegant. I usually just twist my bangs up because I haven't trimmed them (I seriously need to). Beautylish has an article about twists:

Beautylish is my go-to site when I need beauty and fashion advice. It has great tips and tricks. :)

New Years Resolutions!

I've made quite a few New Years Resolutions in my past but this year, 2012, is going to be my year. Quite a few people say that but since I'm graduating in 4 and a half months (SO EXCITING/SCARY!!) I figured I'll have more time on my hands to do things. So my New Years Resolutions are as followed:

  1. Be healthier -  not just lose weight, but eat healthier as well.
  2. Save more, spend less - I can't even stress this one! 2011 was my worst year financially. I spent too much money this year and hardly saved any money.
  3. Donate to charities.
  4. Volunteer at least 2-3 times a month - I love to help others and what better way to do that than volunteering?
  5. Find another job - I love my job but I hardly make end's meet, I need another.
  6. Every day, find something to smile and be happy about especially on those bad days.
  7. Become meaner - it sounds bad, but I need to. I've been too nice to people and that causes me to get taken advantage of. It's time to put my foot down!
  8. Focus more - I find it hard to focus in school so I'm going to work on it.
  9. READ! READ! READ! - I've read a few books in 2011 but I want to read more!
  10. Love more, laugh more, live!
These are the resolutions that I have as of now. I know that I'll think of more and I'll just add them on.

Have a happy New Year!



PacSun is one of my favorite stores and thankfully I received a gift card from there for Christmas. I'm so thankful for that! I bought 2 cute tops and this adorable dress. I was hoping to wear the dress for New Year's but it won't be here on time. :( oh well, it's still super cute! I'll post pictures when they get here in about a week or so. AHH! I can't hold in my excitement!

It's time for me to sleep! It's almost 1 AM and I need to wake up early!

Icy Road Conditions!?

YES! This morning there were a couple of icy patches and I was so scared. I had to drive an hour from my home and I was terrified. I slipped at least 5 times in half an hour. But thankfully the ice melted off the streets. Thank you, God! It was my first time driving in those conditions, too!

Today wasn't bad, I went casual with a Hollister hoodie and Hollister jeans with gray American Eagle boots. I'll be doing some shopping this weekend. There are so many sales its crazy! What better way to start the new year than with new clothes? ;)

I don't have a lot to say today, I'm exhausted.

Have a good day/night!

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!

Whenever I get out of the shower, my face becomes dry. Moisturizer is essential for me because without it, my face will not cooperate with me for the rest of the day.
I use Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer for Combination skin and its the best thing ever made since string cheese. I love it and recommend it to anyone!


Favorite Lip Balm

My two all-time favorite lip balms:

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

eos Lip Balm in Sweet Mint


I love these two because they keep my lips smooth without needing to reapply constantly. Plus, I love the tingling sensation I get from these two. They also have a great minty smell.
For Burt's Bees, I've tried the Pomegranate one and the honey one but I always go back to the original.
For eos, I started off with the Lemon Drop and then to Summer Fruit but I love Sweet Mint the best.

I guess I'm into the minty freshness. ;)

What's your favorite lip balm and why?

Texting: Yay or Nay?

Texting; seems like everyone can text and fast. I text a lot, but sometimes I get annoyed. I tend to take 2-4 minutes texting someone back. However, I've been taking about 10-15 minutes to text back at the least. I just hate when someone texts me back RIGHT after I send the text. Now don't get me wrong, I feel special because your darling, little heart aches to speak to me (seriously, I do feel loved) but if that happens every day, we got a problem bud. If I feel like someone is busy while I'm texting them, I tend to take longer to text them back or tell them "hey if you're busy, text me later or call me".
I have an HTC Inspire and I must say I love my phone. But I know how tired it gets from being held too much or poked too much, sort of like a poking war on Facebook. I like to give it breaks. I turn it off sometimes so we both can get a break.

I would like to hear any opinions whether you love texting or hate it.


Oreo balls

This is my second time making oreo balls. Let me tell you, it went A LOT better then the first time. They look weird but I'm proud of them. C: definitely making them again until I perfect it!


Out with the old, in with the new.

I decided to leave my old blog and create a new one. I can't figure out how to delete it though. I'll figure it out, hopefully. I didn't want my other blog ( anymore for the following reasons:

  1. I started it when I was young. I didn't really know what I was doing.
  2. I didn't know what to talk about or what to do with it.
  3. I neglected it; rarely blogged.
  4. Like I said before, I was young. I typed my words improperly and it bothered me.
So for these reasons, I have created this new one. I'm going to be on it daily (hence the name, dailydira).

So long for now, I have to make oreo balls for my co-worker. :) I may just post up pictures.
