Like a lot of other B&BW fans, I was just a little distraught when it came time for spring scents to come out. I expected to see my favorite from last year, Wild Apple Daffodil, but didn’t. It appeared that B&BW decided not to bring it back this year. I was a little upset but I moved on to other things. When they came out with their newest scent, Beautiful Day, I thought it may be just like Carried Away, so I paid no attention. Continue reading
Just in case you missed a few things that were posted over here or on You Tube, I’ve decided it might be helpful to round everything up into one place so you can watch/read anything that you may have missed. So here goes nothing! Or everything?
Ever wanted to know how to wear a turtle neck?
Have an interest in chocolate chapstick that doesn’t taste like complete a utter crap?
Want to read a post about being a TV addict?
A video highlighting the 4 things I hate about highschool.
and last, but certainly not least, is a vlog filled with useless information.
Click away. babycakes.
As all of us know, turtle necks catch a lot of crap in the fashion industry. They’re generally thought of as grandma-ish, or a little too Osh-Kosh for most people to even think of getting near. Personally, I’ve been obsessed with them. I’m not talking about those thick, cotton ones with fall prints strewn across the front, or those ugly Christmas ones, I’m talking about a sophisticated turtle neck. I wore one last week and even got described as a ‘sexy teacher’.
The trick to picking a turtle neck is to find what you want out of it before you go out buying one. Continue reading
As a self proclaimed chap stick addict, I recoiled in horror when I discovered this in my stocking. As a chocolate addict as well, it’s safe the say I’ve tried just about every chocolate chap stick out there and been terribly disappointed. Hershey’s chap stick? Reeces chap stick? I think we’ve all seen them taunting us in the impulse buy section at Walmart, and we’ve all caved, buying and trying them only to discover how disgusting they are. It seems like everyone is turning candy into chap stick flavors these days, and everyone is failing miserably at it. They always taste terrible, and are too hard to even apply, or worse, feel like brown chocolaty butter. Continue reading
and some people call me the gangster of tivo.
Did you get that reference? If you did, then we’re now best friends. Congrats.
Guys, I have a problem. My lack of posting videos and lack of website posts is no longer because I have no time. It’s because I have no concept of time management. I watch tv like a mad woman. Or mad men? get it? *sigh* I’ve seriously seen just about every show out there, except for a lot of the crime-cop-y shows. I feel like those are all the same so I don’t bother with them, but anything on FX, or the CW I’ve seen every episode. And we can’t forget the ever so embarrassing ABC family. I don’t even watch good shows. I’ll admit I even watch Pretty Little Liars. I feel like Julianne Moore in Crazy, Stupid, Love when she tells Steve Carrell about the time she went to see Twilight on her own. It’s all just *SO* bad, guys.
Does anyone have any tips for breaking a tv addiction they’re willing to share? Any would be greatly appreciated!
I think I just became one of those rabid Pintrest bearing, riding boots wearing, Tiffany blue loving pintresters by posting this, but hey. I’d rather share a little piece of my life and enjoy it than care about what whether or not other people choose to talk about the good things in life.
1. I’m thankful for my family. Duh. I wouldn’t be who I am, and be where I am without them. Although I seem to always be butting heads with my mom, but in the end she has given me some valuable tools that I don’t see other kids around me using, or even knowing about. Not to mention my brother, being the best possible brother he can be. He isn’t over protective or in my face, he’s the front runner to all new experiences, begin the older one makes it a given, and he’s the most to shop with of all of my thirfting friends. He really is my best friend. Him, and my cat. I love them all, and they’ve really helped shape who I am, as well as who I’m going to be for the rest of my days on this planet. So far, I’m happy with what we’ve made.
2. I’m thankful for my friends. You people put up with a lot, and I really appreciate it. I know I can be a handful most of the time, and I’m sorry. I’m glad you’ve decided to stick with me for the long haul, and I love how much fun we have when we really get into it. You guys are all my favorites for a reason, and I’ll always have a place in my heart for each ad every single one of you, good memories or bad.
3. I’m thankful for my job. I can’t even imagine what it’s like to be an adult with adult responsibilities and be unable to find a job to support not only yourself, but a family. Even though I work at McDonald’s it really is a good job. In the end of the day I’m paid, I’m treated fairly, and nobody is grabbing my ass in the freezer. It’s more than most people get, and I’m blessed to work with who I work with. I’ve made friendships, strengthened others, and lost some, but in the end, it’s all worth it. For the experience, for the friends, and for the growth that I’ve seen in myself since starting. Thank you McDonalds.
I’m thankful for so much more, but I don’t want to bog you guys down and bore you til tomorrow, so I’ll just stick with four for now. Maybe you’ll get a continuation around Christmas. We’ll just have to see.
4. Lastly. I’m thankful for you guys. Without your attention, your views, and your kind words I would be no where. You guys didn’t just help me build a website, but helped me move on as a child and have been with me as I moved from being just a teenager, to being an adult. You were with me when I turned 14, and you were with me when I turned 17, and I pray to god you’ll still be here with me when I turn 25, because I really do enjoy you guys’s company.
God. Posts like this just give me the warm fuzzies. It makes me truly realize that life is good, and it’s not something to take for granted.
I’m going to go put on my riding boots, bake cute cupcakes, and paint my nails Tiffany blue now, Thanks.
This post is a bitter sweet one. It’s currently 11:30 at night, and I really should be in bed by now. I’m tired because I worked all day, I’m frustrated with how dirty my room is, and my paycheck has been sitting in my purse uncashed for a week now. Oh, and did I mention I have a seven page paper due first block tomorrow, and I have yet to finish page two? Sadly, I didn’t even sugar coat that.
I figure, as one last thing slap in the face to the paper, I’ll write something else. It’s not even like I can blame this on a lack of creative juices flowing about in my head. They’re there, I just don’t feel like school work.
Does anyone else have a procrastination problem? I’ve had one since the beginning of time, and just when I think I’m getting a hold of my life and developing some self control, nights like this happen when I completely drop the ball. I know that there is no outside force that can intervene and fix this. Only I can. There is nothing in the world that is going to make me work, other than self control, which I am lacking. I am ultimately what is holding me back. Continue reading
Being as weird as I am, I’ve tried to dress differently for the majority of my mature life. I don’t know why, but I feel that advertising my weird is a way to express myself. I mean, if you can tell how weird I am just by looking at me, then I just saved you a few minutes of judging me, right?
Anyway. Most days I figure out my outfits easily, but recently I’ve been stuck in a rut. I’ve had the clothes, just not the ability to put the outfits all together. It just hasn’t been coming to me naturally. Continue reading
For a while now I’ve been poking at the idea of buying a pair of doc martins. I mean, they’re a staple in the grunge fashion wardrobe, and I’ve been wanting to dress a little more grunge lately. Anyway, they’re the most expensive shoes I’ve ever cosidered buying, and thats the main thing that’s keeping me from pulling the trigger. But, as usual, Target came to my rescue. Continue reading
Many people who know me know that I complain a lot about trends. I just have never been the type of person who could justify spending a lot of money on something that will only be good for one season, and often by the time I figure out if I want it or not, the trend is already half over. Like the color mint. Everyone is tired of mint, and I’m just now deciding it’s okay! No way am I spending the big $$ on anything mint in the near future.
Anyway, I should stop ranting. The point is, when I find a trend that I like, it’s rare. This year, as I think it is every year, raspberry lips are totally in this year. Continue reading
