When I build my closet the way I want, a chic chandelier is a must.

The next two are my faves!

A lazy boy?

The beau calls me up this morning saying he wants to go furniture shopping. Deep down inside, I get excited. Anything that involves shopping, I'm there. He wants to buy a chair for his living room. Again, I get excited. But then he says....."I want a lazy boy." ERH? A lazy boy? Blah. I'd rather stay home. And then horror continues. "Let's go to Rooms to Go." Rooms to Go? We definitely have different taste in things but I still wub him. If it was up to me, I'd pick these lovelies

Atlanta Weather is crazy!

I hate the inconsistencies of Atlanta weather. One day it's hot and then a few days later it's freezing cold. Currently, today high will be almost 60 degrees BUT tomorrow it may snow?! Make up your mind!

Omg....I hate not giving in to my shopping addictions. Yesterday I treated myself to a pedi. Rule of thumb never go get your nails done if you're in hurry....because I made the mistake of letting a new girl give me a pedi and she was HORRIBLE! Crap. She ruined my entire experience. While she was very nice, she acted like she was scared to touch my feet (and I must say, I have very pretty feet...i know quite vain huh.) Anywho, I don't know about you but me I want them to SCRUB my feet. Put your back into it, kinda scrubbing. So lesson learned, next time I will wait on you Amy but never again set me up with the new girl. I tip and I tip well ($4 to be exact) and I expect the best service from my pedicurist.

So on to my shopping addiction...I went to TJ Maxx to look around. I don't even remember why I went there. I loathe their clothes. No really I do. I only buy clothes for my son, shoes, and/or housewares. So yeah...I lingered to the shoe department. Not really expecting to see anything that would catch my eye. And then I see it....a gladiator like Jessica Simpson sandal. I tried her on and it was a perfect fit. So I continue to walk around with one of their shoes on and on the other foot my pedicure flip flop. Then bam, another beaute. This time it's a Cole Haan flat in a bone color. I stop dead in my tracks. I calculate how much I think the shoe is...$60 at least I say to myself. I turn the shoe around and to my surprise $20! TWENTY FREAKIN DOLLARS!!! Then bam again, I see at least 3 other pairs of shoes that are itching to go home with me. I quickly run out of the shoe department with a cart full of 6 pairs of shoes! I walk around a bit while I hear my conscience whopping my arse. "Get out of the store." "You don't need them." "Put them back." By this time I am giving myself any and every excuse to buy 6 SHOES. I do the math and think well Ja, "you have an extra $200 cushioning this next pay check. You can do it. Treat yourself woman, YOU DESERVE IT."

I give in to my conscience and leave the cart while quickly walking out of the store. I hate being good. I want to be BAD! VERY VERY BAD! Oh swell.

I want to adapt a different shopping idea. Instead of buying 6 cheap shoes, I'd rather buy 1 classic shoe that I will cherish forever. So with that said I am going to now browsing through eBay and see what jewel I can find.


Oh my...

These two have definitely gone through some style transformation. They both have shed some pounds and "brighten up the tudes." I can only imagine their live growing up. I heard Jack has tried to commit suicide and sis had a drug addiction. It's good to see that they're doing better.

I LOVED that show "The Osbournes." SHARON!!

So um...I just bought a laptop. I got a really good deal....$250 to be exact! She's not a MAC like my dream but she's a beaute! It helps having family that owns a wholesale computer company. This year is starting off quite swell. Soon I will be working from home. My life will consist of getting out of debt, starting my side hustle, working out, and being a better me!

2009 is MY YEAR!

PS....I want an Ipod Touch and my techno life will be complete.

Check her out....

Melanie Fiona....kinda dope - "It Kills Me"

I can't wait....

Beyonce, who told her it was ok to wear this? There is no excuse. A woman with all that money?

Heidi, My goodness. Embrace that you're getting older. Don't try to overcompensate with mini skirts and high slits.

Miley, I have never got the sensation of this kid. She tries extremely too hard. I watched her interview on the red carpet and she's just too stuck up for her own good.

The Dull and The Fab to come tomorrow...

New Header!!

Sunday, February 22, 2009

Phew...when I get upset or lonely I like to create. I have missed my old love - Photoshop. I used stay up late designing. Silence is when my creative juices flow. It's nothing major but I can't wait to play around with the site more, once I get time.

- Good night my loves!

P.S. Isn't her Marni shoes dope? AND the nail polish? Ah Spring I patiently awaiting your arrival!

My Girl Crush

Friday, February 20, 2009

I absolutely love Taraji P. Henson but my first girl crush is Joan. Yes Joan, not Tracee Ellis Ross. She will always be Joan to me. Tracee oozes sex appeal plus she is silly and tries not to take herself too seriously. I love a woman that is not afraid to smile. Also, ultimately this is how I would love to wear my hair.

I am tired. I think I am probably the most moody person I know. My moods change so much. One moment I am optimistic about life and then the next I am irritated wanting to be left the f@*# alone. ARGH! I am getting closer to 30 and I am annoyed at the stagnant process where my life is currently. I feel bland but the woman inside me is far from that. I feel like I am way over-qualified at my current job and I am surrounded by morons. I don't know. I hope this feeling surpasses and does so quickly. Although, the economic crisis is taking a toll on a lot of people, that is not even what frustrates me. In a perfect world, I would be going back to school, married, having a side business while traveling with my beau and fixing up our home. That's what I want. But currently I am working from home and chatting with my girlfriend about all of her endeavors. I love that my girlfriends are making moves but I want to be the one with an exciting story to tell.

I want to be able to go into NM or Saks and buy a pair of CLs and not think twice about it. I want to have a fabulous dinner party for the adults and then take my son to the lake the next day. We live life once, there are no dress rehearsals, I am not getting younger darnit. I want to enjoy life TODAY!


Happy Friday by the way people!

Happy Born Day

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I can't believe it's been 10 years. You are the best child a mother could ask for. You made me grow up and get on my grind. I work and work HARD because you deserve the BEST. I make no excuses for showering you with love and gifts. He is my Clyde to my Bonnie and Sunshine in the rain....ok enough of the saps. I cannot explain the depth of my love for this man-to-be. I would kill for him and definitely take a bullet any day. He forces me to be a better me.

If I am not at work or church, I usually don't dress up (dresses & what not). This is my staple Spring Wear. I love basic tess. I've heard James Perse makes great ones. $90 for tee is a bit much for me, so for now I'll stick to my AAs and Forver 21's tees. But oh how covet these Current/Elliot's. You my friend are worth every penny. Yum!

“I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

Spring Cleaning

I am off today, so what a better opportunity to do some clean springing in the roomie. I have completed my work area and nightstand. So I took a break to take some pics:

I really don't like my work area and that's the problem with having a small space. I really have to be creative. My beau bought me a jewelry armoire for VDay, so it will replace the ever so tacky plastic jewelry thingy. I need to buy some shelves & get an inspiration board and I may be complete.

It seems a bit cluttered still, so I may move the mirror and get a smaller vintage mirror to replace it. Possibly will move the vase and get a different candle stand. The Ipod stand and lamp stays.

Happy Love Day

Sunday, February 15, 2009

I hope everyone had a blessed day.

I started my day going to the beau's house with my son. The beau wanted to include my son in the festivities. We got sidetracked watching Man on Fire (good flick too!) and then went to IHop. After that we went to the zoo and then stopped by the parents. We ate at Bistro VG, which is a really nice restaurant. Sorry, I left the cam at home so didn't have any pics of the day. But here are a few things I captured afterwards:


Diamond & Flowers.....a girl's best friend


Tomorrow's Agenda

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Valentine's Day Eve (which is Friday the 13th - how freaky is that) is going to be a busy day for me. I need to stop procrastinating.

My to do list:
Step 1) Wake up and make breakfast for the son

Step 2) Go and get my hair done

Step 3) Get nails and eyebrows done (I really should have gotten my nails done yesterday....argh)

Step 4) Pick up my beau's gift

Step 5) Go to MAC and buy some essentials (Lip liner, Lip glass, and Fluidline)

Do all this and make it to work by 3:30 P.M? Errh....I may have to take a half day tomorrow. Dag nab it!

Magazine Subscriptions

In celebration of being able to work from home again, I want to order a magazine subscription. Here are a list of my fave mags:


Women's Health

People Style Watch

eBay Shoes

So, I finally found my charger and connector for my camera. I've felt so dead. Here are a few pics of my current eBay buys. 2 of them are Dolce Vita, one is TopShop, and the other is BCBG.

Operation get skinny

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Sorry for the delayed postings. Sick + Lazy = Ja not wanting to blog. LOL!

Anywhoot, I drugged up (Advil, Tylonel Night Cold medi, Airborne) and feel much better. Anyone who lives in Georgia knows that mother nature lives up to her name. One day it is 23 degrees and then tomorrow it will be 55 degrees. What?!

Down to business. Project get skinny is back and I MUST get it together. I am a walking Ms. Piggie lately and this is NOT cool. Since the change in my job will lead me to working from home I have to take full advantage of this and lose these pounds. By May I want to at least lose 20 lbs (I know kinda reaching right). By August if I could lose another 10/15 lbs. would be great. Yes, I have WAYS to go. I am the biggest I have ever weighed in my life. Meaning, I weigh more than I did when I was pregnant with my son. I have a muscular build with curves, so I will never be model skinny, but my height can't carry this weight.

I was talking to my manager today and she is currently watching what she eats with WW. So I think I will try to incorporate the same program into my routine. I really want to eat a larger but healthier portion for breakfast, a smaller lunch, and even smaller dinner. For those that struggle with coming up with meal pleans, I will start to post my weekly meal plan. Either every Sunday or Monday. So be on the look out.

Going to Ikea

Friday, February 6, 2009

TGIF! Only 6 mores of work and I am FREE!!!!!

The beau and are going to Ikea tomorrow. Here is MY shopping list:
1) 2 sets of these boxes - Since I am getting rid of my ridicoulosly big dress, I will house my undergarments in these boexes. I will probably line it with some, I think?
2) The stand - I can line my addiction for bangles

3) I want to get a dish to put next to my dress for my knick knacks. This might work.
4) My beloved wooden hangers. I will probably pick up 4 pks.

5) I need to buy 2 bookcases for my shoe collection and get one for the son's room.

Goal: Spend NO MORE than $100

Celebrity Friday - WTH??



ERH? With those shoes? Eh, me no likey.


Love at first sight!
