I'm Sick

Sorry for being M.I.A everyone. I have actually been really sick. To the point of getting on allergy meds/shots and Zpaks and eye drops. Ugh... So I will be back to blogging later in the week.
The List

The list ? What is this list you speak of? Well, the list is actually my "bucket list" that I began when I was 15. I don't know if it was created out of shear boredom or there was no 21 jump street on TV. Who Knows? What I do know is that it has reached 45 items and only 2 have been completed. This is lame and I am pretty pathetic for not even tacking this thing like I should have/be. So reaching the mere oage of gasp 30, God my heart sinks when I think of turning 30. Anyways, I want to tackle this list with more agression and completion.

So, I have decided that after much suggestion, shoving and encopuragement from my parents and friends. I will begin to tackel the list.

Here are some items I want to get done:

Sing kareoke while sober

Race up to to the Seattle Space needle

Take a year of my life and travel the world.

Engulf myself in another culture.

Take a painting class

Have self portraits made of myself by age 30

Go to a DC protest ( I think this was more of during the Bush era) lol

Go to the NYC Met Opera

Stay at the Plaza Hotel in NYC for one night

Hit a baseball at Fenway Park

Work at Chic Fil A for one day

Volunteer at a retirement home

Go to Bali and take a vow of silence for one day

Become a cool person's personal assistant for 1 week

So, I am telling my parents about my list and their response: " Go for it and just do it" Me: Uh?! I can't do these I am now 30 and no time. I have a great career and all. Too much time has passed.

So, here you go folks.. After a weekend of praying, thinking and drinking long and hard I have decided to just do it. I hope you will join me on this journey. Should be interesting and mainly entertaining to say the least. But definitely a ride worth riding.

Oh, and the "Cool Person" I want to be their 1 week PA is Aziz Ansari. It's really the only person I can relate to. Lover of Chic Fil A, Foodie, humorous, grew up in South Carolina ( as I have) etc… Plus, I admire him, he is a wonderful person. Starting a new blog for this grassroots campaign to get me to be his PA for 1 week. - Will Work For Aziz.

Who's with me?

RHONJ- Part 2 Recap -- " Wigged Out and Awkward Hugs"

Yep, you read that right.. Wigged out and awkward hugs is what part 2 was about. I must say that these ladies get odder and odder every season. Which is awesome!!! Ha ha. I'll admit it, I will miss Danielle and the crew. It added a spice to the show that I had to just watch to see what would happen next.

My only comment is what was Kim G.'s Dynasty ooutfit. What in the world?! Bright silvery teal with off shoulder roses and blinged out everything?! Yea, I have no words for this one.
Overall, RHONJ has ended, until next year. Now, onto ATL, BH and DC :)

Happy Friday :)

Secret Confession:

Okay ya'll I have a confession to make and I havent told anyone on my blog or on twitter this. Only bacause it hasn't come up ha ha. But I have a part time job that I do to raise funds for my parents health insurance costs. I am a Mary Kay Skin Care Consultant. People ask me how come you have such gorgeous skin? What do I use? What is my skin regime? Well, I have been using MK since I was 15 and I am now 29. The reason I use it is because not only do I adore the products, but I love sharing my skin care info with others.

I began this in college just part time to help my parents medical costs etc.. I just do it part time and I love helping my family out. I read all about cancer in my "day" job and apply that to my friends who purchase MK from me.

I asked a friend of mine from college, why do you buy from me? She said, because you don't push anyone. You teach people about the dangers of not taking care of your skin and how important it is. It's funny, I never had it click with me, but I am not pushy. If they ask, I am all about teaching them and helping.

So, there you all have it. I am a MK Skin Care consultant. :) Very proud of teaching all women and men about taking care of their skin, getting skin cancer screenings etc…

If you have any questions, concerns or would like to try out some products. I am all yours! :)

Talbots- The New "Jcrew-esque" Store

When I think of Talbots, I think of old stuffy cardigans, penny loafers and shawls. No lie. That's what I think of and the fact that they are way overpriced. But I have changed my tune girls.

Talbots is targeting younger, sleeker and preppier look. I must admit, I am in love! These are my must have's from Talbots:

So, move over JCrew and get ready because Talbot's has taken over :)
 Happy Friday Everyone!

"The Miracle Mascara"

Happy First day of September!
Can you believe it? It is already September. Phew… the summer just flew by this year. I love fall, it is actually one of my favorite seasons. From a girl who grew up in Boston, I definitely miss the snow and cold temps, while living here in the Carolinas. So, I welcome fall and its gorgeous colors, coffee drinks and cardigans :)

If you have not been on twitter or you don't follow me on twitter, by the way, shame on you. ;)

You will have noticed that many of my tweet friends are trying to find t he best mascara while on a budget. I basically preached and raved about the Cover Girl Lash Blast Masacara. It is a miravle tube for your eye lashes. At $6.39 a tube that does wonders for your lashes, you really can't beat it. It lengthens, volumizes and stays on! Its fantastic!

This is what my eye lashes looked like with the mascara on: Note- no curler was neede just 2 swipes of this bad boy and it was on :)

See the volume and length?! Its amazing!

This tube has it and I give it an A+.
