iLIFE + RANDOM BLURBS


Happy Elections Day! Can I get an amen? Even though pushing the clocks back has made it be pitch black in our apartment come 5 o'clock in the afternoon, I haven't lost site of all the pretty colors that surround me on a daily basis. A big thanks to the pretty Fall leaves desperately hanging on to their branches. These are just a few things I've been up to as of late, according to my iPhone.

+ I've had a pounding migraine the past two days. No amount of advil, dark and quiet rooms or hot showers seem to do the trick. Any suggestions?
These boots. Yay or nay???
+ Halo 4 was released yesterday. Why do I mention this? Because the mister played this (headphone set and all) until nearly one in the morning. No words...
+ For all those wondering if Wreck It Ralph is any good. It is.
+ Have you guys checked out this site? Have you ever wondered what some of your favorite celebrities, tv characters, or online friends are wearing and where to get it? Hello, Gossip Girl. Then make sure to create your profile and join in on the next big thing!
+ What should I put on my Christmas list?
+ Oh, and I love my friends!!

  4. Oh no! I hope your migraine goes away real soon!
    Try some anti stress yoga and breathing exercise, I just had a guest post up from an amazing yoga teacher on that topic!

    Get better beautiful Lady.

  7. Migraines are the worst! Watch what you are eating- that may actually be the culprit! And yes to the boots!

  8. Happy Election day! :)
    Those boots? YES! I love them!
    I haven't been very excited about Halo 4...The first one was good and the rest haven't been my favorite at all. :P now CoD Black Ops II is something I am *psyched* about. a lot. :D
    love the pictures! <3

  15. Oh my goodness TJ, I LOVE your style in that picture! You look just marvelous! As far as the migraines go- the only thing that 'helps' temporarily for me is pressure in the back of the head. And sometimes "Excedrin Migraine" helps depending on what kind it is. Feel better soon!!

  16. my oldest kiddo and hubby went to wreck it ralph on friday. they both loved it. i'm a little jealous that i had to stay home with kiddo #2. on the bright side i'm up for movie going the next round. hello Christmas movies!

  18. I have terrible migraines at least once a week. They're so awful that I've had to go on medication–that might be an option for you! Also, you look SO pretty in that picture!

  20. If you get migraines lots you should talk to your doctor about a prescription medication (abortive migraine treatment) you can take when you feel one coming on that works pretty well! I'm a pharmacology major can you tell? ;)

  22. How funny, we've got Halo on blast over here in our house too. Sucks about your migraine, hope you're feeling better now!

  23. awesome photos- those flowers are gorgeous! migraine- try aveda blue oil... it wont be a cure, but it should help take the edge of. for me, it's blue oil, dr. pepper, dark room, advil (when i'm not prego) and hubby's tie tightly tied around my head. (sounds crazy, looks crazy, but the pressure helps). and yay on the boots, love 'em!

  24. Thank you hun, love your pictures! Want to follow each other?:D

  29. Yes! I love Wreck it Ralph! :) Such a fun movie and a great concept.

  30. i hate migraines...i know your pain as i am a fellow sufferer. all that works for me is sleep and darkness but that isn't really that helpful.

    hope it disappears soon.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha! Totally get you on the whole husband wearing a headset 'til 1am thing. My hubby doesn't play Halo, but he has a few other games he likes. The funniest part for me is to sit in the living room and listen to the random things he shouts out to his teammates!

    So sorry about the migraine :( Drink lots of water, ibuprofen, stay in the dark and sleep (if you can). That's what I do.

  40. Beautiful photos! Hmm for the migraine, how about drinking cups of hot tea everyday? That's what my grandma would do, and it seemed to help ease the headache. :)

  42. Great pictures! I'm so sorry to hear about your headaches... if it get really bad, I've heard great things about acupuncture although it just seems scary...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sorry you've had a headache, the only thing that fixes mine is Excedrin and sleeping.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I say yay on those boots! too cute.
    Have you been to stealherstyle.net?
    That's a fun site to check out celebrity street style haha
    We all have our guilty pleasures, I guess!

  45. For your migraine I suggest a massage from the hubby and some herbal tea. I've also found that stretching andyoga help when I have a headache. so maybe try that too?
    And I feel your pain. my man doesn't play halo, but he's obsessed with madden.. and if I don't go out to the livingroom to remind him that's its bed time, he'd stay up all night playing.. ugh.. men. i'll never understand them.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Boots: They're... fine though I prefer something a bit more girly. :)

    Christmas list: That is something I must be thinking on also. *sigh* The holidays are just around the corner!

    Ah! Feel better, TJ! Any sort of headache is never pleasant. :/

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm not sure on the boots, they aren't my style but I can see them on you tj:)

    cute pics as usual!

    ReplyDelete
  48. amen and amen!! :) :) happy election day to you, too!! also i love those pics!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. definately yay on the boots, girl, i want those too! Also, as a chronic migraine sufferer {like insanely frequent - it's not even cool}...I take Maxalt - over the counter, my doctor prescribes. One of those little gems and three Ibuprofen + a dark room for an hour, and my migraines go right away. If you're okay with taking medication for it, I'd really really recommend it. It's a lifesaver for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am such a knee-boot wh@re ...and I have muscular legs...so those boots (to me) are a 'nay'. HOWEVER, you could pretty much where a potato sack and make it look cool. so, add them to your Christmas list! wanna know what I want SO BAD!!?? (YOU KNOW...in case you win the lottery and want to buy it for me..HAHAHA): THIS: http://silhouetteamerica.com/silhouetteCameo.aspx come to mama!
    LOVE LOVE the tones/colors/shades of your photo montage today! hope you had a wonderful weekend!

    those steve madden boots are to die. i've been looking at the same ones for some time now. i can't decide if they will be worth the price, because i really wear out my boots quick. love the look of them though!

  60. I'm torn on the boots, too!! I love them, in theory, but just not sure if they're really "my style"... I don't know, I think even so I'm leaning more towards "YES!" :) That photo of you is absolutely gorge. Like, it belongs in an Urban Outfitters catalog. And not the latest catalog (which was a big wtf to me), but the ones a few years ago, when they were REALLY GOOD! And your point on Halo 4 had me cracking up!! The hubs hasn't gotten the latest, but he got the last Halo, and did that exact thing. Boys.

  66. Thank you for stopping by my blog! I'm glad I'm back in the blogosphere!
    I've seen a few of your outfit posts and I think you could make those boots work in your closet. They could go with a good pair of skinny jeans - fierce!

    One thing I want for Christmas is a new vanity mirror... I have an old school one which my cat decided to break lol

  74. IM SO JEALOUS HES PLAYING HALO 4.......my husband has our copy and i am waiting for a copy from gamefly to arrive so i dont actually have to purchase it. if your husband is looking for people to play with - we'll be on like crazy soon enough. we have the limited edition halo xbox that came out with reach and the helmet limited edition that came out with halo 3. it's fun to play - there is a co-op mode, you should see if he will play the co-op with you - there is an easy mode and the story is usually pretty awesome. it's one of the first games my husband and i played through together. :D and all of your photos are so cute - your life is adorable

  75. I feel you on the Halo 4. My husband doesn't play halo but he plays Battlefield and Call of Duty religiously. At least on the bright side I always know what to get him for Christmas though should I really be encouraging him.
