Dear semi-faithful Blog readers

I am so sorry for my disappearance from the online world.  School has consumed my life recently.  I am also working on my undergrad thesis about... POTATOES!  :) exciting I know.  Anyway, that is why I have not been around to brighten up your world with my blogging but do not fret,

I will be back. 

I have so many things to blog about!  I have a huge list on my cute post it notes on my desktop.

I miss you all and I think about my blog all the time, probably more than I should.  Thank you for still checking in occasionally, I really appreciate it.  :)

Happy Holidays!

Survival Tips

As a girl, life is more detailed.  there are a lot of things that we ladies do that doesn't even cross the man's mind.  So here are some of my life lesson tips for everyone out there in this beautiful blog world.

1. Nail Polish Tips! My fav.

A.   So I am a messy messy nail polish painter, which is surprising considering how much I do it.  I just get distracted and my hands don't quite follow directions.  So by the end half the bottle is usually on my fingers and toes instead of my nails.  It looks ridiculous and I always get made fun of.

My response: Don't worry! It comes off in the shower!

that it does my friends, that it does.  All it takes is a little bit of water to loosen it all up and then just take your nail or maybe a little cuticle pusher to clean off the polish that hath runith over the edges.  It comes off like magic! :)  Bam it looks just as good as the other girls.

B.    My next favorite tip for my tips (haha I love puns!)  is to blow dry them. I move around a lot and they get the ugly smudge or  It makes them dry much faster and it feels good.

C. I just learned this and it is so cute!  The Half Moon Mani.
Finally a use for those gross tasting little brown adhesive circles that go in notebook paper holes to reinforce them.  That is a long description for something so little, but I do not know what they are called.  Anyway. Use these cut in half and apply to bottom of nail after first color and then paint above it!

 So idiot proof and so cute! :)

Last but CERTAINLY not least!
D.   I have some old-ass* nail polish in my collection and sometimes they get really blobby and sticky.  Which is really sad because some of those old colors are the best! and not easily found again. So what I do is pour a tiny bit of nail polish remover into the bottle and shake shake shake.  Viola! your nail polish will be like new again!  Your Welcome.

2. Pick a "you" Scent
I like many other people love candles a lot.  I have quite a few and I blame it on my sister because she always had such great candles that I wanted my own collection.  Now I have it.

 I once read somewhere though that when choosing candles it is smart to pick one scent for one room.  So maybe get like vanilla for the kitchen and get a few candles of it.
The reason for doing this is because you won't get overwhelmed with a lot of crazy mixtures of smells, but also because it makes it memorable.  A lot of our memory has to do with smells so commit yourself to memory and pick a special scent just for you and use it everywhere!!!

My scent is usually apple woods or apply-cinnamon, or woodsy smells.  I like the smell of nature and trees so these are a perfect blend for me.

I recommend going to Michael's craft store for some cheap candles, they have great seasonal smells and lots of sales!
but Bath and Body Works is also great, but they are kind of pricey for the average poor college student
Also, Yankee candles, obviously.
and my new favorite is Pacifica.  They make great candles that smell so good and are made out of soy!  Highly recommended 

Well that only turned out to be two survival tips for life, but I'm sure there will be more to come.  But it was really like 5 things because I talked so much about nail polish.  :)

*I'm sorry for the use of a curse word: especially to my mother and father who raised me better than that.

Once a century my friends.  I have been waiting for this day to come for years.  I think I joined the facebook group for it at least 4 years ago.  It is finally here.

The ultimate wish day!!!!! I am so excited!

I have been wishing at 11:11 for years and also convincing others too.  It is a very special time, I love it when things match up.  So today will be the most ULTIMATE wish day.  at 11:11 on 11/11/11 Everyone should make the most beautiful wish, for anything!  Because I believe that it may just come true. :)

Start thinking about your wishes everyone! It's almost time!  But don't worry if you miss the AM one just wait for the PM one.  :)

Enjoy this most beautiful glorious and rare day.

I am so happy.  I will be outside making my wish in nature. :)

Also Happy Veterans Day.  Not to take away from this, this is also very important.

Great News!

Lots of things have been happening in the world lately.  I decided it's time to share some of them.

Number 1. Hugh Grant is having a baby!!! YES!, a little baby hugh grant.  I for one, cannot wait.  I love Hugh and everything he is in, he is just so funny and goofy.  He is the star of several of my favorite movies.  About A Boy, Love Actually, Bridget Jones Diary ( I know we all secretly love this movie) and oh so many more.

Hopefully his love child will be as fantastic as him.  I believe it is going to be a little lady.
Here is more of the story.

Number 2.  Taylor Swift Topless Picture Scandal?
WTF. I don't believe it.  I took a peek at the picture, not to be creepy but just because I couldn't believe it.  No way is Tay dumb enough to do that.  I don't actually think it is her, and according to her lawyers it isn't.  This girl just doesn't have the cat like qualities that T. Swift is so famous for.

Number 3.  TITANIC in 3D. Yes Yes, they are re-doing and re-releasing this movie in 3D.  It is of course costing millions of dollars.  Totally worth it.  This is my dream.  young Leo, saving lives and taking names, in 3 dimensions.  Could there be anything better?  I doubt it, maybe Leo in real life.
more story here.

Number 4.  Not about a Celebrity!  even better. TOMS is coming out with ballet flats in Spring of 2012!  I cannot wait.  I saw a preview pic, so cute.  I love TOMS but now I can love them even more with every outfit and dresses also!!! With the comfort of my normal ones, plus they of course are still ONE for ONE.  Now a little African Girl gets a pair of Ballet Flats and I will be happy to help.

I will be getting the Leopard ones first I believe.


Number 5.  All the winter nail polish lines have come out and they are spectacular!!!  China Glaze has some lovely glitters that I would love to get more Christmas (hinthint)  Essie's collection is AMAZING.  I already own the majority of them, I HIGHLY recommend checking them out.  Wet n' Wild also just came out with Winter Glitz nail polish, yummy, they are all sparkley.

What an exciting month it has been!!!

Kim K.: After the Wedding

Well, sadly less than a month ago I posted about Kim Kardashian's wedding.  It is now time to post about her divorce.  (her second divorce)

After 72 days of marriage the couple is filing for divorce because of "irreconcilable differences".  I am guessing he thought that she was a ridiculous fame whore and she loves the camera more than him.

Sorry Kris, it's okay though you are too down to earth for the Kardashian Klan or maybe you really are just after her money, in that case, bazinga!!!.

I feel good about the fact that my guess for under a 3 month marriage was correct.  I think I won a bet.

What's uber sad is that apparently Kris didn't know his lovely little wife was filing for divorce, he found out from the media.  Ouch.
