Well after dealing with children from the YMCA where I am volunteering I am done some of them make Dennis The Menace look like an angel child.
Well got to go

Calling All Infomercial Aholics

So if any of you readers have been up one morning and turned on the TV you know that what Bare Minerals is along with the "magic bullet", the "ab lounger" and of course other endless amount of "as seen on TV" crap. For all of you who actually called about the product in question Bare Minerals, does it work or is it just another scummy type product like the pancake flipper. We have a store "Bare Essentials" about 45 minutes away and I've been wanting to try it but is it worth it? Please let me know if you know anyone who has tried it or you yourself have and what you/they thought. And if not what makeup product you prefer.

$50 Flip Flops

My favorite pair

Ok so yes these are $50 "fitflops" by Bath And Body Works and I am really wanting them know even if it is a ridiculous price. This is the description of the "fitflop" as quoted from bathandbody states, "Get a workout while you walk! Every step you take in your FitFlops™ improves your core muscle strength, absorbs shock on your feet, knees and back, and strengthens and tones muscles in your feet, legs, buttocks, stomach and back. Half sexy streamlining, half muscle-toning trainer, the FitFlop is the shoe to have this summer. FitFlops load your leg muscles more so you get a workout while you walk. Every step you take while wearing FitFlops helps tone and trim your thighs, calves and glutes via a uniquely built multi-density midsole. In fact, they are engineered to absorb shock, lessen joint strain and recreate the gait of barefoot walking with a powerful new built-in micro-wobbleboard workout-enhancing effect. Available in sizes 5-11. The shoe has a generous foot bed and you may want to size down. Imported." Wow sounds great right and the lady at the store swears by them whats a girl to do!! Well my answer is to get a pair as soon as $50 comes my way.

My mom got this email about Neiman Marcus cookies a couple months ago and I have to share it with you.

My daughter and I had just finished a salad at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas , and we decided to have a small dessert. Because both of us are such cookie lovers, we decided to try the 'Neiman-Marcus cookie.' It was so excellent that I asked if they would give me the recipe, and the waitress said with a small frown, 'I'm afraid not, but you can buy The Recipe.' Well, I asked how much, and she responded; 'Only two fifty - it's a great deal!' I agreed to that, and told her to just add it to my Tab. Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement, and the Neiman-Marcus Charge was $285.00! I looked again, and I remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two salads and about $20.00 for a scarf. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement, it said, ' Cookie Recipe-$250.00. ' That was outrageous! I called Neiman's Accounting Department and told them the waitress said it was ' two fifty ' , which clearly does not mean 'two hundred and fifty dollars' by any reasonable interpretation of the phrase. Neiman-Marcus refused to budge. ; They would not refund my money because, according to them, 'What the waitress told you is not our problem. You have already seen the Recipe. We absolutely will not refund your money at this point.' I explained to the Accounting Department lady the criminal statutes which govern fraud in the State of Texas I threatened to report them to the Better Business Bureau and the Texas Attorney General's office for engaging in fraud. I was basically told, ' Do what you want. Don't bothe r thinking of how you can get even, and don't bother trying to get any of your money back.' I just said, 'Okay, you folks got my $250, and now I'm going to have $250 worth of fun.' I told her that I was going to see to it that every Cookie Lover in the United States with an e-mail account has a $250 cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus...for free. She replied, 'I wish you wouldn't do this.' I said, 'Well, perhaps you should have thought of that before you ripped me of f!' and slammed down the phone. So here it is! Please, please, please pass it on to everyone you can possibly think of. I paid $250 for this, and I don't want Neiman-Marcus to EVER make another penny off of this recipe!

Shhhh.. Do You Wanna Know A Secret

OK so I got a text message today from Urban Outfitters (I am apart of there text club) about a "secret sale". It's more like I was one of the thousands of people to know about it first lol. But its an extra 20% off of an already reduced sale price. Its only til the 25Th. All you have to do is enter SECRETSALE2 at the checkout. I really hope Urban isn't mad about this since many people already know about it and it will be released soon. Plus most people who read this blog like Urban so they probably already know. Hey I mean if one person knows why not tell which will lead me to my Neiman Marcus cookie posty thing tomorrow.

Bye guys happy shopping!!!

There's just certain shades of limelight.......

Outfit # 1, my favorite

Outfit # 2


Outfit # 3, my second favorite

These outfits above are from Old Navy's "Spotlight Collection" overall its small but I love some of the pieces great for night looks. But as I have said in many post before I am BROKE so even Old Navy's rather cheap prices are too much now. I love Gap Inc. new way of shopping online, you have one cart for Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic and Piperlime. Also a flat rate fee of $7 for shipping which is pretty good especially for me because I love all of those stores. I have been watching the travel channel a lot lately because I have already begun planning for my backpack through Europe the summer after high school i mean 4 years isn't too much right? LOL. Well I better be going I have some things to do before I settle down and watch Anthony Bourdain on my Ipod.
Goodnight all

Gym Attire



Since I've been spending some time at the gym I figured I should do a "gym clothes" post. This stuff is all out of my price range at the moment so I will be sticking to the sweat pants and tee shirts. Its been 9 days since I've had soda. Also I did 45 minutes elliptical machine(its kind of a weird one it looks like skis and you push to move it up and down) and 2 sets of 10 chest presses. Although my milkshake and cheeseburger really didn't help me. Well I'm off to enjoy some quiet time.

They Had To Be Drinking

What was Vogue thinking when they posted well not this exact vest but one kinda like it as a most wanted item. I hope they mean most wanted as in throw the person in fashion jail for wearing a "all natural coyote vest". Dear God if you want to look ridiculous put on a clown suit its funnier and cost less. Well that was my daily rant. Thanks for listening

c ya tomorrow for a longer post I'm off to look at real estate in the Hampton's for my future home (yeah right)

A Day At The Beach

Well today we went to the major tourist trap that is Ocean City. I really just wanted to relax and walk on the beach and up the boardwalk for a while before we had to leave to get to my brothers swim lessons at four. As we got close to the Ocean we saw that there was a fire parade and that to expect traffic so our peaceful its Wednesday no one will be there relaxing day didn't happen. We didn't even see the ocean or the sand. We got Thrashers and went to watch the parade in the mini van with my 2 cousins 9 years and 6 months and my 3 siblings 7 years, 4 years and 7 months. Doesn't that sound fantastic. Then we came home and went to the Y and swam then took 5 children home wet!!! I am done and to top it all off I can not get the pictures I took off my phone!!!!!! Now as I type it is storming.

C ya later guys hope your day was a tad better then mine!!
