My awesome friend Melanie always comes to work in the hottest shoes… and it seemed like everyday, I was always saying “HOT SHOES” to her.
I’m sitting at my desk thinking “gosh damn.. this woman is so busy with all her endeavors and what not, how does she have time to go shopping for hot shoes???”
Finally after about a week, she says to me… “you know i get all my shoes from Shoedazzle.com”
I thought maybe she just goes shopping online, BUT she went on talking and told me about their monthly membership program. oooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
So I hopped on over there and checked out what it was about and I was SOLD! (if you wanna know, go there and read. It’s simple. Don’t make me type it all out)
This was last week. I filled out the profile survey and a few days later an email was sent to me with 5 different shoes to choose from… and this is what I chose for the month of September:
Minerva Shoes (September Choice)
What do ya’ll think? Hot or Not? Of course I don’t know how comfy these will be until they get here… BUT the great thing is, if I don’t like it… I can return it hassle free 🙂

Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long… had a bunch of stuff going on (nothing major) just a lot of little things, so I decided I need to get my shit straight before I start broadcasting my life again.
So… school has finally started 😦 It’s a slow semester for me. I’ve got 2 classes:
- Monday: Econ1
- Tuesday: Business Communications
Business is going great as far as www.thetraincase.com is concerned. (don’t forget to visit the site <–)
AAAAAAAAAAAND… I got a new job! yay! 🙂 I’m in a new office now… surrounded by WONDERFUL, POSITIVE people. I couldn’t be happier!
Sundays are usually our Fundays! 🙂
Today we drove up the PCH to Alberto’s & ate Mexican food til our tummies nearly burst. We had their bomb a$$ Carne Asada fries (the ones I blogged about a while back). I also wanted to try something new from their menu so I got a Carne Asada taco. It had soooo much meat in it that I was able to make 2 tacos cuz they usually serve each taco with 2 tortillas.
We HAD to walk off all that damn food we ate so we drove n drove til we got to the Long Beach harbor. We walked around the path along the water for a while. Then we sat and watched boats go by for some time as the sun slowly started to sink lower and lower from the sky. We got up and started heading back to the car, but while on the pier, the announcer said the last harbor boat tour was about to depart and that it’s usually the best one cuz you get to watch the sun set while you’re out on the ocean. We decided “why not” & got 2 boarding passes and got on the boat.
OMG! I’m so glad we went! It was awesome… Here are some pictures I took. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera. All I had was my cell phone so I made do with what I have. If you ask me, I would say “not bad” for cell phone pics!
View from the table we first sat at
I think these are called pedal boats. They use em a lot in Mississippi.
We decided to give up our table and stand along the front of the boat for a better view.
Long Beach Light House
Little harbor town. Bunch of restaurants known for their Sea Food. We've gotta go back and try it out!
The moon was out on one side of the boat!
While the sun was still out on the other side of the boat!
Here's the little island where they manufacture humans... J/K (i need to stop watching movies) It's a pump island. They unload all the oil they bring from other countries onto lil pump islands like this.
It was definitely an interesting day. After the boat ride, we headed home…
BUT our day wouldn’t be complete without a trip to YogurtLand!!! Sorry no pic of my froyo as I ate it faster than you can say FUNDAY!
Tired as heck. Gonna leave you guys for the night… Hope you enjoy the pics!

SOOOOO I’ve been contemplating this for sometime now…
I KNOW I KNOW!!!… before you all get your panties (and briefs/boxers) in a bunch, I know it’s permanent…. BUT BUT.. I’m tired of drawing them on EVERYDAY!!!
Plus you’ll be happy to hear I’ve done my research and found a new kind called “Hair Stroke Eyebrow Tattoos.” It looks totally natural cuz they actually draw HAIR where its sparse. OH AND… its SEMI-PERMANENT! It lasts about 3 years then you have to get it retouched again! Here are some before and after pictures:
***MOST of them look natural….
But yeah… If I can get this done, it would save me SO MUCH TIME in the morning…. I mean I have some brows… but they’re very sparse and well… it looks non-existent from far away.
So what do you guys think??? EVERYONE please comment & tell me whether it’s a good idea or a bad idea. I’m in Hollywood, California but willing to travel the LA County area if you have a recommendation on someone good! All suggestions are welcome….
btw, check out my site: www.thetraincase.com
aaaaaaaaaah got you!!! it’s just me 🙂
A couple things about the picture….
It’s JULY and YES… that is a CHRISTMAS WREATH hanging behind me. We bought Christmas decorations last Christmas and we didn’t realize we’d have nowhere to put it after the holidays was over…. so yeahh… it’s been Christmas at the Robinson-Delacruz residence all year round :-), but we don’t mind. We like it. Christmas brings good cheers to everyone and our home always feels like a holiday anyway.
Okay… so many things to catch you guys up on. As some of you may know, I’m off on Wednesdays now. I haven’t had a weekday off (unless it was a major holiday) since I started working when I was 17 (I’m now 24 for those of you wondering!!) I was a WORKAHOLIC and couldn’t bear the thought of losing one day of work cuz that’s one day less on my check. BUT I’ve come to realize that money is not all that important. I mean yes, I’m on my hustle, I’m on my grind and that’s a good quality trait there… but it’s not worth my sanity. I started to realize I was working my butt off like if I had a family to feed or something. I also realized that my 20’s are flying right by me and I need to slow down a bit. Plus I also had to get used to the idea of not working so much cuz once I transfer to the University it’s gonna be school first and work second.
I feel I’ve accomplished some things in my life that not a lot of people my age have been able to do, so I’m not too worried about getting a late start with school. (I took some time off to do some soul searching after highschool & stuff a.k.a partying) BUT during these times, I figured out what I wanted to do with life which is what a lot of people have a hard time figuring out WHILE in school. In turn, they end up taking a bunch of classes they don’t need because they realized that they wanted to change their major.
I’ve been trying my best to make my Wednesdays as productive as possible. Mostly putting time and effort into the business. I’m sitting here twiddling my thumbs at the moment though because all the inventory has been ordered and now I’m just waiting for them to get here so that the REAL work can start. I’m SUPER excited and I just pray everything will work out for me. My goal is to use this business to help me get by while I’m in school so that I don’t have to worry about working set hours. I’ll be able to work from home!
OH YEAH you guys! I’ve also made a BIG sacrifice. I’ve turned my makeup room into my office! I mean it’s still my makeup room… BUT now there’s a big giant work space table in there for me to do all my work on. Plus its holding up my GINORMOUS 23″ monitor cuz after all, my business will be done on the computer so it’s only right I spoil myself a bit…. (lmao- I’m horrible)
I’ll take a pic of the re-done space once I clean it up. It’s a big freakin mess. The inventory is coming in little by little and I have nowhere to put it at the moment so it’s all over the floor and the table.
Alright I’m gonna sign off for now… be back later!

I’ve recently become an official business owner (like recognized by the state and all!!!) I’ve been trying to figure out what I’ll be offering on my site. I know there’s gonna be all the stuff you need to press pigments (26mm pans, palettes, magnets, labels & such,) some personalized palettes, makeup, and eventually traincases too! 🙂 Anyone with suggestions: PLEASE FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME A HOLLER!
Alright off to tinker around with the site a bit more. Love you alls…
