book one.

You'll be proud to know that I'm really trying to stick to my New Year's resolutions. I've been drinking a lot of water lately and I feel like I've seen a difference with my skin. My skin hasn't been as dry, which is awesome. Also, I finished my first book for the month of January! This month's book was Lauren Conrad Beauty by Lauren Conrad. I got her book for Christmas from Sheila and I absolutely love it!

Her book covers everything from skin care, diet, makeup, hair, and nails. I learned lots of tricks and tips from it and if you are a beginner with everything beauty related like myself, then I think you'll find this book pretty interesting and helpful. I actually really enjoyed reading it. I mean who knew there were different types of hair brushes?! Haha. It's a pretty easy read and I do recommend it to others. You should check it out! I also have her style book, which I'm looking forward to reading, but I think I'll save it for another month. =)

Hope you guys had a great Super Bowl weekend! How about them Seahawks?! Congratulations Seattle for winning!!

I just got the news that my Godfather passed away this morning. I wasn't close to him or anything, but the whole thing has really hit me kind of hard. He collapsed and fell into a coma about a week or two ago. Then they had to take him off life support because he had no brain activity and he passed this morning. I guess I'm taking it hard because I never really got to know him because of the distance and it's really starting to hit me that I'm getting older, which means all my loved ones are as well. I'm so used to living life with these people around me, thinking everyone is still the same and remembering them how I did when I was younger. And in the blink of an eye, everyone, including me, has aged. I don't know how ready I am for this kind of change in my life. I guess I'll admit that I'm bit scared. Not of death per se, but of losing more of my loved ones. How do you prepare for something like this? Or can you even prepare? I don't know...I can't even imagine what my aunt and cousins are feeling right now... Sending all my love to them right now.

Well anyway, today is the Super Bowl. Broncos vs Seahawks. Is everyone ready for the awesome commercials and the half time show?! Haha. Just kidding. I am actually excited to watch the game. It's the second time the Seahawks are in the Super Bowl so they're probably so motivated to win. And come on, we all know that Peyton Manning is good. So, it's going to be a good game! And how can I not watch?! New York is hosting this year! Who are you rooting for?
