Sprinkles vs Sparkles: Donald Glover is my spirit animal

Friday, March 22nd, 2013


It’s Childish Gambino Friday! I woke up with Mr. Glover on my brain and can’t stop listening to him.

Donald Glover was the better part of my morning. I also woke up feeling like I was hit by a truck. I had one of those moments where I realized something that might be life changing.This was that, I am not where I want to be health wise. No, I didn’t go out drinking last night but I did stay up until 3AM. My sleep patterns are not the healthiest and it’s something I would like to change in my personal life to be a healthier me.

With this in mind, I would like to share my Sprinkles vs Sparkles. Part of being the healthiest you is noticing what makes you happy. It’s also key to take note of what you have personally achieved. In case you’re wondering what the hell Sprinkles and Sparkles have to do with this, I will break it down for you. My weekly sprinkles are things i’ve come across that I loved. My sparkles are my personal happy moments within my life that i’ve done or accomplished within the week. So here we go:




♡ This article is basically perfect. A good friend recommended that I read it.

♡ Finding out that Rebel Wilson is possibly in the new Hunger Games film.

♡ Gala is at it again! Here is an amazing post that just went up today. It’s super informative for the blogger babe (or dude)! Check out the other parts of the series as well, and get your blog on.

Keep liking and sharing my blog. Together we will take over the internet and world. ♡ Learning my limits. Due to travel and fun I was constantly on the run.

She is my whole heart. ♡ Deciding that being healthy needs to be a full time job. ♡ Getting back to my dance and fitness routine at Work it Dance and Fitness. ♡ Landed tickets to see the yeah, yeah, yeahs in NYC next month. I might faint.

I seriously can not wait to get them.

And there you have it, my bunnies! I hope your week was full of awesome, colorful foods, good hair, and dancing.


Keep it sexy, Gotham!

Sprinkles vs Sparkles

Friday, December 21st, 2012


Hello my little scones! We wrap up another fantastic week and I hope your week was as peaceful and lovely as mine. I have been fighting ebola (or some other exotic sickness) all week, but I think I am finally starting to feel less like a zombie and more like a person that woke up still drunk. I hope that all of you are taking your vitamins and drinking tea. Don’t be a half drunk zombie, your makeup never looks right unless you’re fully healthy. Fabulosity only happens with health! Anyway, without further wait, I bring you this week’s Sprinkles vs Sparkles…



♡ I loved this little bit on what type of blogger you are. I found it helpful and I am a little of three different types of bloggers. I am a Hedonist, Life Improver and a Beauty hunter. What kind of blogger are you?

♡ Being a late 20 something, I loved this Forbes 30 under 30 list. So inspirational.

♡ This is an older post but I adored these adorable illustrations for nerds in love.


Random internet birthday puppies!

I am deeply and madly in love with Daisy Lowe (and her father) and this video has been my jam all week.

♡ Finding out about this beautiful handwritten blog.

I ADORE this amazing TED talk featuring Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell. It’s so unbelievably honest and real and you definitely should take the 10 minutes to watch it.

♡ Loving the new Rockstar Diaries makeover.

♡  Lego Handbags by Karl Lagerfeld.

DIY Raw & Organic Deodorant, YES PLEASE! I am definitely going to try this.


This Hello Kitty/Star Trek Borg mash-up. At first I didn’t know what it was and then I realized it’s a cake. I am an not even really into Star Trek but I know this shit is badass!


♡ I am super proud and excited about my Donald Glover post on Black Girl Nerds this week. ♡ Completed my first giveaway ever on KV’s Confessions. More on the winner in a later post. ♡ Speaking of KV’s Confessions, I had a great conversation with Kristen earlier this week. It was definitely the pep talk I needed. ♡ Made plans for days! Literally. I have been making major plans and goals for the year to come in my personal and career life. It’s going to be a year packed full of love and fun. More information to come. ♡ Learned a fun burlesque routine to Madonna version of Santa Baby. ♡ Cleaned and prepped! I know Christmas isn’t here yet, but I have been working around the clock to get everything super cleaned and organized to bring in the New Year properly and without worrying about getting things in order. ♡ Got my end of the year Tarot card reading. It was refreshing and necessary. ♡ Visited Sandy Hook to deliver flowers and pay my respects. My photos from Sandy Hook will be pictured below. ♡ Went to see Fuerza Bruta for the second time and it was almost more amazing the second time around. Time is running out for anyone in the NYC area to see this amazing show. DEFINITELY do it if you can!
