Taking Risks

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Man, I always come back to this very topic. I get in moods where I just want to take a big risk. Just say screw it and do something crazy. Like pack my son and move across the country. Or quit my job. Or start that business I always wanted.

If you could just say screw it and do something daring, what would you do?

*Way off topic: Nothing beats 90s music.....NOTHING*


Here a pair of shades from Pharrell that he posted on his blog.....just sick! No questions asked.

Party Prepping

Ok, so I have decided on my gf's party favors! *Drum roll, please........*

Custom M&M Prints!

I placed the order and it shall be here tomorrow. 840 pieces of M&M's. YUM! In pink, teal, and gold! They didn't Peach, Pink will have to do. I am such a hands on person, so ordering something without seeing it can be stressful. Hopefully they coome out just as nice as this order:

I plan on putting them in petal cones. I need to go buy pretty printing paper tonight after work.

*Photos are not mine....don't remember the owners, pls. forgive me.*

It's party time!

My really good friend's birthday is this Sunday and I am helping with some of the planning. I am in charge of getting the music together (which will be a mix of 90's hits), the cake, and party favors.

The colors of her party are teal, coral, and gold. I love doing things type of things because it gives me the opportunity to be creative. Here is a pic of one of my girlfriend's at her 25th party. If you check out the background you can see her cake and cupcake setting.

Can't take it...

Rihanna is definitely trying to get us to refocus on why we love her....her style. The girl has been on the prowl and never seems to disappoint. I can't seem to keep up!

I love the underdogs....I always root for them, so you can imagine my excitement during these last 2 days. Yesterday, Orlando beats the Cavs and then today, Denver beats the Lakers!!! Gotta love it.

eBay Fanatic

Thursday, May 21, 2009

I am seriously an eBay fanatic. I want to say that most of my new buys have come from eBay. I am not sure if it's the competitive nature of winning a bid or the idea of getting really good buys dirt cheap...but nothing compares to eBay. Within the week alone, I've bought 2 French Connection dresses (winter and summer styled) and can't wait for their arrival. Since I love that site so much, I will share the wealth of great eBay finds that I come across and may not buy.

Here are pics of some of my latest buys:

French Connection Dresses

1000 TC Egyptian Cotton Sheets


Calling all women who wear size 10's. Check out this eBay auction for a pair of lovely Omelle booties in a lush cream color. I always seem to fine fab shoes on eBay THAT are not in my size.

Check out the auction here: eBay Auction

I cannot concentrate.....

I am having a hard time concentrating here at work because of this song, "Playing Our Song", which I cannot take off repeat. Damn you Chrisette!

Jean Grae will forever be that one artist that never made it mainstream because she refuses to compromise the pen. She's quit the industry several times but you can definitely find her on a mixtape or as a guest feature to the likes of Styles P, Talib Kwali, or Immortal Technique.

I hesitated to jump on the Chrisette Michele bandwagon. I finally broke down and checked her out. I must say "Playin' Our Song" is my new jam!

Nero is like a 15 year old kid on some "make you repeat the track several times" saying he did not just say that did he?

All 3 artists are in heavy rotation in thee iPod, so definitely check them out!

Must Watch: Precious

Staring Gabourey Sidib, Mo’Nique & Mariah Carey, “Precious” tells the story of 16 year old Clarireece “Previous” Jones, a 16 year old African-American girl born into an abusive and treacherous life. Pregnant for the second time by her absent father, abused by physically and mentally by her mother – she lives a life no one would want. Unable to read or write, school too is a place with little solace. However, despite these pit falls she remains strong and aware of the possibilities her future still holds – despite her current situation. This story shows the journey of Precious, from the “darkness, pain and powerlessness to light, love and self-determination”

Shoot: Ashley Olsen in V Man

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Ashley Olsen stripped down to strike a few moody poses for the upcoming Summer issue of V MAN, which hits newsstands this Thursday. She chatted with Marc Jacobs about her forthcoming men's collection for The Row, and the two designers also touched on her work ethic and the differences between her and Mary-Kate.

On doing a "celebrity line":
The way I look at it, I had a career as a child. I had a career in an industry in which the media kind of. . . they're obsessed with the young girl thing. But when I turned 18, I moved to New York, and I haven't really done anything to be a celebrity. I've been transitioning from acting as a kid to doing something that I'm choosing for myself — to be a part of the fashion industry. . . the outside perception is very different because you do have celebrity brands, people like Jessica Simpson and Kimora Lee Simmons, and those are celebrity brands because they have their names on them.

On working with Mary-Kate: The Row is really something that I'm doing while my sister still wants to focus on acting. She's my partner in The Row, but she trusts me with the every day. I mean, I see her like ten times a day.

On being different from her twin sister: When I was 14, 15, 16, 17, it was harder because the two of us were still very similar. We had to work through what's special about us, and then the media had to work through it. . . I've never been one to engage the media to say that I'm different. I actually did the opposite and I totally went internal. I was like, "See y'all!" I want to be behind the scenes, and I don't want people to know anything about my personal life. I have a job, I take it very seriously, and I work really hard.

I could so use a Venti Iced White Chocolate Mocha like right now!

These games are no joke!

Oh my...these playoff games have been intense. Just saw a clip of La La almost smacking the taste out of two women. Per La La's Twitter: "u cant harass a person,callthem&their fam n*gg*rs,call kiyan a b*st*rd,push me in the back of thehead cuz ur drunk and not expect a reaction"

That's crazy. If that was you, what would you do? It's really hard for me to say because at the end of the day, all the media sees is a woman acting "ghetto" as depicted from the comments on the internet. Sometimes you can never live your life to "impress" others. I personally would have to go gung-ho on those women.

Haven't been blogging lately....but eh. The internet is nuts right now with all the buckey nakey action floating around....*tisk tisk* Leave them, they are young and misguided youth, so unfortunately I am not surprised.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY Ladies....off to do some crunches.

Curtain Closet Doors

Thursday, May 7, 2009

I remember having a conversation with the beau about removing the doors in his laundry room and just use curtains. He thought I was crazy but after looking at these pics.....I can't be crazy, right?
