I know you have all heard about the horrible event that took place in Aurora, Colorado last weekend. I couldn't believe it, when I heard it.  It's horrible to think that someone could take something as innocent and fun as a movie, where people go to get away from their life and lose themselves in fantasy for a few hours, and make that something they are going to be scared of for the rest of their lives.  You know, out of the victims that survived, they are probably never going to go to the movies again... and the ones that do, it will probably be a long time.

And then on top of that, I found this article yesterday.. broke my heart even more. To think that even more people would go "hey that guy was smart... i should go to the movies and hurt someone" !!!! I will never understand the evil that happens in this world. I really won't.

but on the plus side... Christian Bale went and visited the survivors in the hospital.  I've never been a fan of his, but really it was very amazing of him to stop by and do that.  I'm glad he took the time to do that.  As those fans of Batman were really needing something positive to help them cope through their troubles.

It's times like these we have to try and remember the good things we have and pray for the ones that are struggling so hard. So my heart goes out to the victims families and friends.  I hope they can find peace in this troubling time.

Muffins with a Chocolate-y twist!

Mmm. I love muffins. I usually buy the pre-made mixes and will make muffins sometimes, every week. Or maybe just once or twice a month. Depends! But I love them. All flavors really. I'm not picky when it comes to muffins.
Well , I went and bought a whole bunch of packs from the store and decided to make some up today. Today I went a pack of Lemon Poppyseed (mmm lemon..) and Chocolate Chip.

this is usually the brand I buy. It's cheap and tastes good.  (and simple!)

Well, I decided today that since I had a jar of Nutella, that I would see how those chocolate chip muffins tasted with a bit of that in it.  I put a large spoonful in with the mix as soon as it was mixed up.  And then baked like normal.  I wasn't sure how the Nutella would bake... but I was hoping for the tastiest!

Well..... let me tell you this! MMMMM!!!! In all reality chocolate chip muffins have always been one of my least favorite (why? I don't know. haha I seem to like the fruitier ones better) But they were so delicious today! The Nutella made them so chocolate-y!!! I can't even tell you. I ate two!!!! So amazing.
Really. I had to tell the entire world. TRY IT! And if you want even more chocolate, I'd say add 2 spoonfuls instead of one. (but you might die from chocolate overload. mmm what a way to go!)

How to Clean Your Hair Without Shampoo | Simple Mom

My friend told me about this article and I'm willing to give it a try! Shampoo and Conditioner is so expensive and we could all use a bit of a money saving pinch.  We shall see how my hair turns out when its 'poo free as they call it!!! HAHA!

Easy Ways to Give

If you're like me, money is tight sometimes. But I still want to give to the less fortunate and help out those that really need it.  And sometimes donations just aren't possible to do with the bills I have.
BUT thankfully there are some AMAZING sites where you can help out, for free. Yep, for free! So that way you don't have to feel bad the next time you see a sad commercial about starving kids that need help and you can't send money. I mean, if you can donate, PLEASE DO! There are some amazing organizations that really help!
But when times are tough and you can't... just try these sites -- be sure and sign up.  The more you click, the more points you get. You can enter to win prizes or donate even more to a charity!  which you can click as much as you want! and there are tabs at the top of the page to give to other charities as well!!! This site also has a shop with some great products that give a portion of the profits to the charity of your choice!!!!

Care2  -- has the free click buttons for charities. But you'll also find plenty of petitions and articles to find out so much!! It's a great site.

So there you go! 3 great sites to help out. Because sometimes its not the things we can afford that help out the most, but the fact that we reach our hands out to help.

Hey! I personally love Apple! I have a macbook and it runs like brand new even after 4 years.  They make some great quality products!!!!

DIY Shampoo and Conditioner

Hey guys!!!!

Well I don't know about you, but I have struggled so much the past few years trying to find a good shampoo and conditioner. About 2 or 3 years ago, my hair that went from being soft and smooth all the time (never needed brushed or combed! unless i was in the wind haha!), went straight to unmanageable wet! I couldn't even run my fingers through it! I had to start using detanglers and extra leave in conditioners. Which didn't help me, because I have naturally oily hair.  So I had to start washing my hair every single day... It has been a cycle of annoying! I assure you of that. But I found this article on pinterest that led me to this recipe to make your own shampoo and conditioner.
Which I assure you, I will be trying as soon as I can find the ingredients!!!!! And I don't know if any of you have the same problems (or maybe your hair is too dry...) but it's always worth a shot.  I miss my manageable hair, for sure!

DIY Shampoo and Conditioner!! 

I hope it works for all of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Let me know if you try it! I'm very curious!
(i know i wouldn't mind having her hair! hehehehe)

Days off, movie marathon.

Hey! So I've had the past few days off. And today is the day before my favorite day of the year, the 4th of July!!!!! So, I went and bought a few tiny fireworks for me and my best friend to pop. Did some smoke bombs earlier. Those are always fun. :)
But afterwards.. I was like "hm... what to do..." So I watched some movies from Redbox. Got "Act of Valor" , "Safe House", "21 Jumpstreet" and "Gone"

I watched "Act of Valor" first... I was hoping this movie would be great because the previews made it look so awesome. I expected to be moved by patriotism (fitting right before Independence Day). Didn't happen. I thought the story just fell flat for me.... I ended up downloading free games on my ipod and playing them through the whole thing.  Now, I often like to multi-task during movies, but this time wasn't for fun. It was because I was bored.

"Safe House" ... now Denzel Washington is one of my all time favorite actors. That man does no wrong in my eyes. Ryan Reynolds... well he's just good on my eyes! haha! But overall it was a decent movie. Denzel performs like he always does. Ryan, takes his shirt off a few times.. and acts his butt off. So that was good. :) Had a good twist in the story too. Overall, I'd recommend it.

"21 JumpStreet"  ok.. didn't know what to expect from this. Never watched the tv show growing up. But I knew that Jonah Hill is really funny sometimes.  Well he actually co-wrote this movie and it was surprisingly really funny! I ended up laughing throughout.  And Channing Tatum was awesome in it, as well! I hadn't seen a lot of his stuff (I did just see "Magic Mike" last weekend).  He was funny and very likeable in this movie.  And there are SO many quotable lines. DEFINITELY recommend it.  (ps. There is quite a bit of drug humor, since they are on a drug bust. Which I normally don't find funny, but it worked well in this movie)

I haven't watched "Gone" yet.. I will let you know. I am about ready to hit the hay!

If I don't get time to blog tomorrow, be sure and have a SAFE and FUN 4th!!!!!!!!!! Go out and eat lots of food! Pop all those fireworks!! Have a good time. Its a great day :)
