In Preparation

Right now I'm working on many projects for school, which means less blogging time. No worry my friends soon I promise an array of posts. I recently have received a gift card for a $1000 to Saks Fifth Avenue and in about two weeks I'm going to have a little fun with it and go on a shopping SPREEE! YES. Very Excited. Also, I have many things I'd like to review for you guys soon. I just Purchased the Ombres Perlees Eyeshadow Palette from Chanel. I was passing by the Chanel department at Macy's and saw this palette glistening in the light. I just had to get it. This palette is from the Spring 2011 collection. I cannot WAIT to try these colors out! Also in the make up category, Lime Crime's new lipstick colors are coming out in exactly one week March 7th. This is very exciting because, the color I've been searching is finally going to be available.

Diet Update: I'm now more than half way done with the diet only 12 days left! I feel fine, I'm still a little hungry nothing major. I'm not craving like I did before, but I cannot wait to try the New Walden Farm products (zero-calorie) I purchased and review them for you guys. The weight is also taking longer to come off but, I'm still losing which is great.

Should I buy this bag?

Preparing for Warm Weather

Before I get on with my blog for today, I'd like to talk a little bit about on the diet I'm on. I will give you guys a little updates on my progress, in upcoming posts. I have always been on the heavy side, and have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I have tried a few things before but nothing major. In high school I ate salad only for a month, and other such stupid self made diets. This diet is a lot different, and I'm being monitored by a doctor. It is called the HCG diet, which is based on Dr. Simeons book "Pounds and Inches". In this book Dr. Simeons describes the benefits of combining HCG (hormone) injections with a very low calorie diet (VLCD) for weight loss. The HCG releases the abnormal fat in your body so that you body can burn it off. When I heard about this diet I was very skeptical, it didn't seem very safe, or healthy. I thought of course I would lose weight I'm not gonna be able to eat. Also, there was no way I was injecting myself. I did more reasearch about the diet and found you can take sublingual drops and people's success stories persuaded me to give it ago. Of course, I wasn't going to trust one of those online scam sites. So I went to a Metabolic Clinic recommended by a family friend (who is also a doctor). I was given a packet of things I was allowed to eat, how I should record what I eat, a regimen of vitamins and supplement (which provide the nutrients I need), and normal test like: blood work, check-up, and a fat body scan. I have check-ups every two weeks, to make sure everything is well and I get body scans to compare my progress. Tomorrow is actually my first check-up. I started the diet on Feb.9 2011 so tomorrow will be exactly two weeks on the diet. I don't feel any more tired then usual, and I get small hunger pains, but they are manageable. I still have 20 more days left, so hopefully the pounds keep shedding off.

Here is my weight tracker:<

I've also decided to try out this site that everyone has been raving about Polyvore, so here are some outfits.

A style I could try when I'm 50 pound lighter.

I Promise.

So um I heard Ground hogs day said spring is coming soon!!!! Totes my favorite season of the year. YES. This means I get to wear my favorite clothes without having to cover it up with a big bulky winter coat. I am way excited!!!!! You should be too, because this means Fashion Trends and Much More is promising to have a post at least once a week!!!! I know I've been a slacker. Sometimes its hard to balance life though. For example, I watched Glee today (instead of doing my homework of course) and you know what? I was kinda inspired by the fashion looks Brittany and Rachel were spreading around the school. Not gonna lie was totally into it, who knows maybe arm warmers will make a comeback this spring.

Maybe I'll sport this look sometime soon:

Or Maybe I'll go for the "chic,sexy,librarian look". who knows....

By the way side note: I totally missed when they started saying bitch on TV.
