OMGeee. I have a NECK!

To be honest, I haven't seen major progress in the way that I look until I was going through some old pictures on my computer.  A friend of mine said she could tell after looking at a few facebook pictures of me from the past, but a lot of my customers who don't see me every week can tell that I've dropped some pounds.  I am SO excited && happy that my hard work actually has been paying off...

Here are some old pictures of me around my 21st birthday last year::

here is a picture of me in march during spring break... not that good, my camera is extremely sick:

here are pictures from the last month of my face (that's where I see it a lot)::

 OMGee. I see the loss in my face, but I can feel it when I'm wearing clothes...

Since this lovely adventure, I've lost a total of 23 pounds.  It's exciting; I can't wait to see where I will be in August.

My Back2School/ Fall Must Haves...

thus far... luckily I'm not the only person making major life changes in my inner circle;; therefore, i've been able to avoid purchasing loads of new clothes because I just take the "hand-me-downs."  I'm solidly down to a 20, a size I haven't seen in at least two years... my goal before school starts an 18.  With my goal in mind, I've been "shopping" around to show off what I've accomplished this lovely summer... here are so of the goodies that I MUST have:

this dress is from i love the print and the simplicity of the cut... clearly because I want a navy one just like it.

top from torrid;;

z. cavaricci collection from torrid -- downside their 100% cotton... they will stretch & i already have to get them larger because of the thighs, hips, and bum.

z. cavaricci collection;; torrid has had this for a while, but i've been on the fence about it because I have something extremely similar to it, but now it's too big.  I would definitely wear it as a tunic though because it looked shorter than this in the store.

sandals from ninewest my weakness;;

This is starting to look a little expensive;; gotta start saving now.

are you just beautiful?

"my momma said a lady aint what she wears but what she knows..."

outside beauty will eventually fade with age, but when you leave this earth,what will you be known for?  At the tender age of 22, my outside appearance is on top of my priority list. Vain, i know, and mostly sad... but i can honestly say, there is more to me than what's on the outside.
