Blog Shmog

sometimes i think, why do I continue with this wee blog? really, i do! so...in order to stop those thoughts I need to a) stop blogging b) re vamp and write about something else and/or c) get more followers.

It seems a tad depressing that no one reads or comments on my blog... well, no no one, because some people do...this leads me to believe I am not exciting...which at the moment, I admit, I am not... as I continue to complain how boring life is and I dont know how to fix it... okay... I may be MIA for a bit...dont miss me too much!

Nikki Minaj

Last night my boyfriend surprised me with Nikki Minaj's cd! That right! I dig Nikki Minaj! And, folks here she is in all her {fashion} glory...

She can look as sweet as pie and as bitchin as a bull dog... (? yah I just made that up).... but either way she has some great style going on and I applaud her for both her talent on stage and on the red carpet ( or where ever else she may be).

{look at those shoes }

{I love this look...boss to the max}

All the leaves are brown....

goodness, i have not been a very good blogger as of late... which is due to... lack of motivation... which is basically affecting all areas of life right now. But, if I just make myself do it I know Ill feel better in the end. Yesterday for example, I didnt fancy working out but I made myself go for a run... which turned out to be great! It was nice and hot ( i love the heat) and the sun was shinning! And today I am nice and sore ( I also did some pushups, etc). I know blogging wont make me nice and sore, but at least I get to talk (?) to someone... I talk very few people during the day, and those I do talk to are giving me orders and making me do tedious work or talk down to me... oh work... how I love thee ( or loathe....)

Okay... well... it is now September which is awfully depressing as I was caged inside all summer... even though it rained...but its hot out now, but I wouldn't know it, Im in my windowless box. Well, as cliche as it sounds, I hope this change of season brings some change for me as well... things can only go up from here... well, not really, it could get worse, but lets me optimistic shall we?!

This month I plan on making and accomplishing some goals... such as trying a new recipe each week, making Lolita Lemon ( my jewelry and hair accessories) bigger and better, decorating my bedroom, saving a bunch of money...Easy peasy goals which once accomplished will make me feel good about myself!

What are your short term goals?!

Lust Haves Returns!

Friday... oh how I have longed for you... for real... this week sucked! And what better way to celebrate than with my newest Lust Haves! I know I have been absent.. although I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't notice... I'm the blog who gets picked last in gym class, who doesn't get invited to your birthday party... but together we can change that!Okay, okay, here are my Lust Haves:

1. Kat Von D Makeup- most notably her new palette titled 'Poetica' as well as her eye primer, makeup setting mist, lipstick... well, everything really

2. A green shag rug for my bedroom... to match my new retro bedroom furniture... like this one from Crate and Barrel...but it probably wont actually be this one, as its very very expensive

3. A new pair of boots... min are getting a little worn out...

4. A trip to Disney Land... the happiest place on Earth... that's where I need to be... and not in at work...which is the unhappiest place on Earth...well maybe not quite but it makes me pretty unhappy

5. Something sweet and chocolaty...seriously, I'm so hungry right now and all I want it some chocolate cheesecake or a cupcake or brownie or a truffle or cake pop...oh someone, please bring me some chocolate!

Its a long weekend...which is always something Im lusting over...less time working and more time having fun! Ive got tons of fun things planned for this weekend! I welcome a well needed and deserved long weekend with open arms.


Binge and Purge

In an effort to 1) make some money and 2) get rid of all the stuff I don't need, want or use I have decided to sell quite a few of my personal items. This includes things like clothes, shoes, furniture, home decor and kitchenware. I actually don't have a whole heck of a lot of stuff but It seems that I do have mostly stuff I don't use... or doesn't fit. Thus far I've done fairly decent in selling of my things and have made a good profit. I'm saving my money and a vacation I'm hoping to go on although these days I don't like to get my hopes up- that sounds pretty pessimistic, but hey, it's the truth. Life is filled with let downs. Anyway back to me selling off everything I own... It feels good to get rid of unwanted things, which clutter up space which could be used for shoes and clothes I actually do wear... or for my new 1950's bedroom set (more on that later).
I often get a sense of satisfaction when I get rid of things. Its almost like an accomplishment. Hurray, I finally used that whole bottle of body lotion! or... Goodness, why did I ever keep all those empty shoe boxes, freedom at last! And now...my closet is half empty, my storage closet is slowly becoming more organized and less full and all those random things I kept for some reason are finally diminishing elsewhere to a place they will be appreciated.

Have you ever binged and purged... personal belongings that is?!
