REUSE AND RESTORE - GREEN I AM

Since living on Oahu I've learned the valve of recycling and to do my part to help the environment.  Hawaii is one of the few states that actually pays you to recycle and of course you get charged a fee for buying anything that comes in plastic, aluminium, and etc but you get the money back as long as you take the effort to recycle. 

Well since I've been in SC, I've been doing a few things to help myself out.  I change all my light bulbs to the energy efficient bulbs they are a little cheaper if you buy the true valve type from Walmart!  I bought the light bulbs in November 2009 and they are still going strong and its July. 
Here is my latest project!  My home is in Hawaii and I'm renting here in SC and I refuse, REFUSE! to spend a lot of money on things I will be getting rid of when I leave.  If I do spend the extra money its because I will be taking it with me.

I went to Goodwill and bought a entertainment console and coffee table.  I will be revamping the entertainment console some since mostly I'm here by myself unless Tia and some people from back home stop by.  I paid a grand total for both items 15.00!  YES $15.00.  I was extremely lucky because it was 50% off everything in the store.  I also got my couch from Goodwill and I bought a cover to go over it!  Guess how much,? $15.00 yes.  Bargain!  Now everyone knows my secret of where I got my three awesome pieces from.  Since I'm going to be here for a while with school I have to make the best out of it. 

Plus, I'm going to be using my apartment as a business office for selling my avon. 
This is where the previous owner ripped out a boundary board.  I am in the process of sanding it and I like the rough look of it and I will be staining it where the TV and ETC will be sitting.  I did replace the knobs on it just to make it a little more prettier.  Of course I will have before and after pictures later.

Styling in my new fatty clothes


Totally went to walmart and became a big spender.  I bought enough workout clothes to last a week.  All the tanks where 3.00 and Capri and yoga pants 9 to 11.  Can you say - Score!  I love every piece I bought so far.  They are no ride ( so no more digging in my booty at the gym) and the tops and bottoms both absorb sweat as it happens.  That was the deal breaker there.  I am super cheap.  For the longest, I've been wearing my tights to go walking, running, or whatever in just because I didn't want to go and pay out my booty for workout clothing.  You never know how much you sweat in tights until you go and walk/run 3 miles and sit your sweaty booty on some patent Honda Accord leather - your booty because itchy within 10 seconds of sitting in sweat and whatever stretch fabric my tights are made out of.  Anyways, happy exercising fellow chubbies!

By the way, my other half is excited about the weight lost and he gets to do a visual of the progress every week via web cam!

I'm Back!!

I feel like I should have the p.diddy bottles clicking in the background or Ti's song playing on my background, lol.  Well I was sick, had surgery, and now on my way to taking the world by storm welll at least my bubble world.  Anyways, I got a new phone this year its the HTC HD2 and I ♥♥♥♥ it!  It does everything I wish my brain could do but just at the speed of 3G.  No more G1 ( battery life sucks rabbit balls ) and no more Blackberry ( which I still have but am selling for 80.00 with some good ass stuff that comes along with it!)  Well TMOBILE thank you for making my time a little more better with new super sonic ultra bionic cell phone!
