I come and go as I please...

apparently i feel like i can just waltz in and out of your lives - to whoever actually reads my posts - and i'm sorry! i dont know who i think i am right now, but it will stop... hopefully.
i have so much to write about, i haven't been able to vent in so long! okay so i had to reread some posts to figure out where i'm at with yall. moto and i broke up, i started talking to this guy from irvine, ca. he was a nice guy, but we were too different. after him, i dated here and there... nothing serious, just having fun.. then BAM! he hit me like a ton of bricks - not literally - he was one of the most gorgeous guys my eyes have ever seen. looks are a huge factor, but they're not everything. this guy was chivalrous, he was romantic, he was suave, he was a cowboy - enough said. we went on a date, then another and another and another, back to back, day by day, we wanted to see more and more of each other. well, that was a month ago and i'm happy to report that we are still in our honey moon stage. i kid you not, every single day is better than the last. he asked me to be his girlfriend on our 3rd date and it's been heaven ever since. i was always the type to think people who got married after knowing each other a few weeks were crazy but now i know what love like that feels like. it's amazing. i'm on cloud 9. we both know that we're going to end up getting married to each other, it's inevitable. so with that said, meet Sean xo

till next time!

Draw Something

so there's this app for iphones that i am incredibly obsessed with. draw something. it's like playing pictionary every single day, and i loved that game when i was younger! this game is seriously so much fun and if you have it already, start a game with me @elenavillalobos because i'm always looking for new people to play with. right now my biggest competitor is my new love interest and he is the worst drawer in the history of drawing (yes, he knows he is too, i'll give you an example at the end of this post). and no, i'm not trying to pretend like this love interest is just an every day thing by not mentioning him more in this post, but things are very new and very exciting right now. i just don't want to jinx anything, but he is fabulous and wonderful so far :)

back to draw something. let's play!

and at last, this is why i say that mr. wonderful is a horrible drawer...

haha, i should give him more credit, he drew this late at night and he was tired but it cracked me up so i posted it :) lets just hope he never sees this. 

until next time!

it's called a break up cuz it's broken

everyone can relate to the aching feeling your heart gets after a break up. it's one of the worst feelings in the world, but it won't kill you. you're supposed to fall in love and fall out of love a couple times in your life, it's what makes finding the right one worth it.

i am currently going through a heartbreak. actually, i've been going through this break up for a while now but it finally all came to an end. i'm struggling even writing this because i really thought this was going to be it for me, i was going to marry moto and live our lives the best we could. it's not until after we broke up that i realized he wasn't the one for me, my mind was blinded by love - so cliche, but it's true - and i wasn't seeing the guy everyone else was. if your family and friends are begging you to leave the guy you're with, he's probably not the right guy for you. when everyone around you can see the reason you love your partner and they encourage the relationship, that's healthy. i wasn't in a healthy relationship and i kept saying to myself 'it's going to get better' over and over again. reality is, it never did and it never was going to. i was holding on to hope that someone was going to change for me and i didn't want to realize that what i saw was what i got.
so, i got some words of wisdom from the last place i ever thought i'd learn anything from, a reality show. girls are always searching for closure and the thing we don't realize is that closure doesn't mean going to your ex and talking to him one last time or anything of that sort. closure is between you and yourself. so this show pretty much said to write a letter to your ex, get out everything you have inside of you; your feelings, the pain, the happiness, then either tie it to a balloon and let it go, or burn the letter. when you let go of everything you had, you're making room for happiness to come in.

i'm going to try that because i do feel like i have a lot held in and i just want to let everything go and start something new. if any of you are going through a break up or have advice, feel free to share with me because i can sure use it.

red lips

okay, so first of all... i am the BIGGEST panzy when it comes to trying bold new things. red lips are the one thing i never though i'd be able to pull off in a million years. not only is it hard to maintain, but the color bleeds and because it's so bright and bold, it's easy for other people to see if you missed a spot or went outside of your lip line. so, before i attempted this, i youtube'd a couple "how to apply red lipstick" tutorials and i found this one that totally helped me. i went for a fire engine red because i figured, go big or go home. it's a little hard to get used to because it completely changes your look but it's fabulous!
i am a new red lip lover and i can't wait to go somewhere, anywhere, to put it on again :)

till next time,
smooches xo

this past week via instagram

this is the first time i'm participating in instafriday and i'm so excited to do so! instagram is easily one of my favorite apps for the iphone. if you want, feel free to look me up @elenavillalobos.

here's the past week via instagram

i tried on super pink lipstick and i think i'll have the guts to wear it tomorrow.

i've been so sick, so emergen-c has been my best friend, and what better place to drink it then outside overlooking the pool.

i love my puppy, knuckles.

the one about me being a human lobster.

so, this weekend was - in one word - gorgeous. the weather was amazing, high 80s, and the sky was super clear. i decided that it was time to get rid of my pale look i had going on from winter and make myself a little more tan. let me just begin by saying, NEVER tan without tanning oil and/or lotion. this is probably super 'DUH' news but in my head i thought it would be better if i tanned without any oil on - BAD IDEA. i was out in the sun for about 3 hours and i'm reporting to you while i look like a human lobster. 

my body is red. i don't mean it in a sarcastic way either. my stomach is red, i have crazy tan lines, my birthmark turned pink, it's cray! i can't stand sleeping on my back because it burns and i'm just hoping and praying that by the end of this coming week, it's a nice tan color because red isn't a good color on me. my front is getting tan, the red faded out already so i'm happy about that but my backside is just ridiculous.

how was y'alls weekend? anything fun and filled with tan lines? 

i hope it was amazing and full of fun memories and i hope you guys have a great week!

and if you had a bad day/week, then enjoy my beard that i grew over the weekend :)

till next time,
Elle xoxo

a crafty post.

okay, so i was blog hopping around and i found this adorable little blog called Burlap&Buttons and i was instantly inspired. it was like the heavens opened up and a light was shining onto my laptop screen at these adorable easter eggs that i want to make this weekend. i love arts and crafts time so i'm either going to drag my moto into doing this with me or i'm dragging moto's sister into doing this with me. plus, it will be a cute gift to give moto's parents for easter and a cute centerpiece for my place, too! 

take a looksie and fall in love like i did :) i'll make sure to link up the tutorial on how to make them yourself.

adorable, right? learn how to make them here and be sure to follow Burlap&Buttons! i'm her newest follower and i'm already making a list of everything i want to try making on my own.

till next time,

the one about the picture wall.

so a couple days ago i decided that i was going to fill up my wall with cool pictures of my life thus far. i had a mental picture of what it would look like in my head and i was determined to get it, so... i went to a couple local stores and bought about 8 picture frames and as i was checking out, i realized how expensive this was going to be. the pictures alone came out to $30 and i'm not even half way done! i'm super excited though so it's okay. plus, i have so much free time, this takes up most of it.

my dad came to my rescue tonight and hung up my pictures for me because i am a lost cause when it comes to using tools and leveling things - i'm all about a hammering a nail wherever and hanging up a picture however the nail allows it.

so for your viewing pleasure, here are a couple pictures that show the progress we made tonight...

i can't wait to see the finished product! i'm already a little obsessed, i have my usb ready and full of new pictures i want to go print out and put up.

any of my readers doing any fun spring arts and crafts? or do any of you have a wall in your home dedicated to frames and pictures? tips are so welcome! i'll keep y'all posted on my walls progress :)

books and flowers

it's monday, the start of a new week and the first day of reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. i have a thing with having to read the book before i watch the movie and i've been slacking in my book-worm ways, so i decided to start back up with this book - mostly because i keep seeing the title pop up on my OnDemand menu. i also made a reading list which include, of course, The Hunger Games and The Secret. i'm always looking for some new books to read, too! so if you have any suggestions, feel free to throw them my way.

does anyone else find it like a million times more relaxing to read outdoors? especially on warm sunny days? i absolutely love to do this, even more-so because the weather is perfect - i hope i didn't just jinx it.  the only downside to that is that the sun tends to drain out my energy and i completely lose track of time when i'm reading, so before i know it, i'm hurting for a nap. my life is just so hard sometimes, haha.

something else i want to share with you guys is how much i love spring because my favorite tree blooms and the flowers on it look absolutely beautiful. 
thank god i don't have allergies, i'm able to enjoy these beauties without any consequences. however, if you have allergies, this is why i take close up pictures of my flowers, so it's a win-win for everyone. 

i hope you all have a wonderful and productive week!
also, if you're reading anything you think i might be interested in, share with me so i can maybe add it to my reading list! :)

Lab overload

okay, so a little about me, i'm a crazy dog lady. well, not super super crazy, i'm just mostly really into labs. moto and i have been contemplating adopting a lab puppy as a love child. i've been telling him i want one for the longest time and he's been telling me that we would need a house of our own first. if you're anything like me, you don't want to hear anything negative, you just want what you want. so i dedicated this post to the thing i want most... a lab puppy. 

and that last picture will be our wedding picture :)

time for introductions

so, i think it's time to let y'all in on who moto is because he's a big part of my life and i'll be writing about him more and more. 

so when i started this blog, i was dating my ex, but what you don't know is that i was dating moto before him. see, we haven't always had smooth sails - actually it's been one heck of a rollercoaster, but one thing that has never changed is how much we want to make 'us' work. i'm a huge believer that if two people who have broken up still have hope that they can make it work, then they should try until they can't anymore. i'm so happy that even through everything, moto and i still have the same love for each other. 

this is by no means a fairytale love story where guy meets girl, girl falls in love, they live happily ever after. our story has a little more nooks and grooves than just that, but nonetheless... here we are, three years later and still madly in love with each other. 

i know it sounds so cliche to say that your man makes you laugh and thats why you love him, but it's true! moto is constantly making me laugh. he always has something to say about everything and that's one of the things that made me fall in love with him. he is also so easy to talk to, he makes me feel comfortable to where i can just open up completely and before i know it, i have a handful of tissue and i'm sitting on the couch pouring out my heart to him. 

i have always told myself that i would be so lucky to end up with my best friend, but the truth is, i'm luckier to have found moto and, throughout our relationship, find a best friend in him. sorry for sounding so cheesy.

anyways, without further a-do...

ta-da! meet moto, aka my boyfriend, aka my best friend, aka james :)

when is labor day, anyway?

white spring

white spring by elenavillalobos featuring lace up boots

so many people have told me "you can't wear white pants after labor day" and you know what i do? i laugh at those people. that's right, i look them square in the eyes and laugh. nobody is going to tell me when i can or can't wear my white pants, i'm way too obsessed with them. plus, they go with absolutely everything! shame on you if you're one of those people who try to take my happiness away.

this is for the girls who rock their white pants during any season of the year, while your drinking red wine, and sitting on a public chair, under a sky of pigeons that are ready to use anything as target practice. you are all fearless.

Hello Spring! BUH BYE Winter.

is that the sun i see peeping out? because if it is, i love you and want you to stay! 

i have been so miserable in the cold weather that albuquerque has to offer. i have been (not so) patiently waiting for this warm blanket of sunshine to come out and play! i must admit, i do have a love/hate relationship with the sun - in albuquerque, temperatures get up to the high 90s - but after spending the last few months in nothing but gloom and snow, the sun couldn't come fast enough!

every time i see pictures of spring time i make a mental list of everything i can't wait to do. for example, let me show you and let you in to how my brain works...

i want this dress. white looks so spring-y. i have to go shopping. maybe i should color my hair light brown?

another white dress. i have to go buy one. that brown bag is cute. i wonder if there are any meadows like this near my house. 

those pants! those shoes! that blazer! i can't wait to wear these colors again. teal is so beautiful. i should buy more teal clothes. she's so skinny. i have to go work out. buy a membership.

i have to tan. and work out again. that puppy is adorable. why am i not tan? no light brown hair, i'm keeping it black. i want to go to the beach, or the lake. i need water.

...and that's pretty much how my brain processes these spring pictures. i have a mental list of everything i have to do now and i'm a little crazy. plus, my wallet is bulimic so that doesn't help. 

what are on your spring to-do list?

till next time :)
