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.

baby penny and i

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
