Biancadoes: A Successful Weekend

FRIYAY: Pitbull Concertimg_20160723_031635.jpg

I am definitely getting better at my make-up!





Picture with my Bestie ♥

(She is the one who HAD to see Pitbull and Prince Royce)


Here’s one with Cuca ♥

Friends Since High School, together in drill team.

Recently we have been getting close again- SHE IS SUPER SWEET



We went to Buffalo Bros. with Natt and Johnny for the first time EVER! The PIZZA, WINGS and FRIES were BAE! We are already planning and going again!

Here’s my OOTD and a pic of Ashley and I at the party. We lost a game of beer pong and who ever lost had to jump in the pool… We kept our word.


We actually stayed in all day, I did a short demo for Clearly Combucha at Sprouts around 2 but cam back home right after. My lovely husband cleaned the house to surprise me and we ordered pizza and watched Netflix the rest of the day.

We also found cheap flight tickets to LA for October. So we will see if we can get off!





Biancadoes Challenge Update

So we all know I am new at this whole blog thing but you guys… I am doing so good at my challenges!

Trying to look good: I am still looking BLAH during the week but I have gotten so better at putting on makeup!!!!! I look super cute on the weekends. 😉 I also started going to Boot Camp with a friend of mine. I fell way more energized and happy. Soar…. but happy.

OOTD: I have taken pictures everyday and I will post them ALL on one blog on August 1st. Here’s a sneak peak…

Blogging once a week: CHECK!
Doing DIY’s: I have been doing DIY’s but haven’t really been blogging them  (I am slacking on this one)
Wifeylifey Challenge: I am ROCKING! I changed my last name on every important document! But I actually got him two gifts this month. I BOUGHT US TICKETS TO BOSTON. Ruben has always wanted to go to Boston to watch a game so of course I had to do it. I got us tickets for the week they play the Yankees. Now we all know we are not rich, so I figured next month his surprise would maybe be tickets to the game or I will pay for our stay at the hotel. I can not wait for you guys to see how it goes because of course I am bringing you guys with me!


Biancadoes changes her last name

For those of you that don’t know, Ruben and I got married October 3, 2015. However I still hadn’t changed my name until today! So now that I officially have his last name as my own on every important document, I figured I would show some pictures! Not all of them, of course because I have sooooo many!

So instead, here’s a few of them for you…


This photo was before we started dating. We were just friends, but the fact that I could give piggy backs impressed him. In fact I gave him one after this and I’m sure it’s what made him realize that he liked me.

This was our first date alone! We went to the movies and took pictures in a photo booth. We had no idea what we were getting into!

(Excuse the blurriness; this was 8 years ago taken from photo booth. I actually had to go to MySpace to get this! Lol)

This is our first trip together in Colorado, but technically it wasn’t just us. We had gone with our church group to Young Life. We were maybe 16 and 17 years old here.

For my 20th birthday we went to Sea World. This time it was just us two and when we came back from our vacation, we moved in together. After we moved in, we got our first dog Ezra.


Last but not least, we got married!!!! (Took seven years but… we got married)

 And as of today I officially have his last name!

This all happened in a seven year span…

So now goodbye Olivo

Biancadoes gets a puppy and names it…. Kitty

We got a new puppy today!!! Her name is kitty and she’s a Corgi & Dachshund mix. She was not planned, we were actually going to the pet store to get food for Sangria and Coors and a lady was selling her and her siblings outside. Ruben and I never miss a free opportunity when it comes to petting puppies. I LOVE PUPPY BREATH! So after talking to the lady a bit we found out she was mixed with Corgi and Ruben face lit up!!!! He’s been wanting a corgi since our last dog Cha Cha who was a corgi mix passed away.

He didn’t want to admit that he wanted her but he kept telling me if I wanted her he would buy her for me (even after declining multiple times). I finally said yes I want her and we brought her home. Ruben was in a gifting mood today and this isn’t normal but everything I said I wanted today he bought for me. It was super sweet!

Here’s some pics of his best buy.

How often I do this and why: I am not a nutritionist so I don’t know how good / bad this diet is. But I only do this when I’ve been super lazy and have not been going to the gym for months… I usually use it as a jump start so I can get back on track. I know a girl who went to my school who did this every week Monday through Wednesday and she lost over 40 pounds. I just have not been able to do it because well…. to be honest I LOVE FOOD & THE DELICIOUS KIND! My weight is something I struggle with and this always helps me jump on track after I’ve been in a rut.

What exactly is it? It is a low calorie diet with a chemical reaction that helps you loose weight. Of course I have read good and bad reviews on this diet but it works so of course I do it. I have never fainted or felt weak during it.

My average weight loss: I’ve attempted this diet 5-15 times but have only  finished it without cheating  times. Even when I cheat I loose 3 pounds. But when I follow through I typically loose 5-8 pounds. I do keep the weight off for at least a month… I just gain it back from not changing my diet or skipping the gym.


My start weight this time: 181      Finish weight:177     I lost 4 pounds

This time I cheated on day 2 and had some Ginger snaps  between my lunch snack and dinner  because I forgot I was doing a promo after work and didn’t get home until 7:30. On day 3 I skipped the tuna and had a nachos bel grande from Taco bell. One of my friends did the diet with me and was very strict with it and did not cheat! She lost 9 pounds and she is already super fit and does cross fit.


My heaviest weight ever was 210 and my High School weight was about 165-175

(I have always been a little chubby no matter how active I have been)


Let me know if you have tried this or are going to in the comments. I would love to hear your experience or answer any questions.  If you are iffy about trying it definitely try researching a bit more.






Biancadoes DIY Bohemian Sunflower

Hey all! This is my first DIY video on YouTube and after this one,  I hope it is just the beginning for many more!



I know the quality is not the best… BUT… I am just starting and I really was gonna wait until I had everything to make my videos professional. I just couldn’t wait that long so I figured I would get some practice – I mean I have to start somewhere right!?
