She probably doesn't see it


Hmm? What was that? I look like a what? Yeah, I don't see it. Wanna have a staring contest?

I forgot to mention I love these too.

Things I Love


I'm pretty sure I need a pair of those beige peep toe pumps. Aren't they beautiful? They are from the "yet to launch" Winter Kate line by Nicole Richie. I don't know how much they are but I think they are amazing.

Who Can You Trust


My son is learning what it's like to be disappointed by friends. Unfortunately, I can't always be there to protect him and he's going to have learn through experiences. He takes things that happen very hard and becomes extremely emotional and withdrawn. I hope to be able to teach him that he will be okay and stronger in the long run. It makes me sad to know that I can't protect him from all the bad stuff. He will be okay, though.

Lush




I love Lush products. My favorite products are from their Karma fragrance line. I never thought I'd like products that had patchouli in them but these smell wonderful. Very hippie but in a warm, wonderful way. Love these!

The Sartorialist Book


I recently got this book and have looked over all the pictures over and over again. Talk about inspiring. I have been a fan of Scott Schuman for over a year now and check his website daily for his wonderful photos. He has such a great eye for beauty and fashion and his photos are beautifully taken. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves individual creativity in fashion and clothing.

Cookies on a Rainy Day


I made these today. The weather is awfully glum so it's perfect for comfort foods. They were delicious. Mmmmm!

Let's All Cheer

video

Here is a video of my little girl doing her thing at the last football game. She starts out fourth from the right. I think she did a great job.

The September Issue

I just finished watching The September Issue and I really enjoyed it. I don't think it matters very much if you are interested in fashion or not. The documentary follows the days in the life of Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue, prior to the launch of the September issue. I've seen The Devil Wears Prada which is, supposedly, based on Anna but I truly believe that as much as people would like to believe that this woman is a total horror I don't think she really is. She is a strong, intelligent business woman and I think she deserves a lot of merit. After watching how much goes into the publication of one issue (a very important one at that) I have gained a great respect for her. I highly recommend this documentary if you get a chance to see it.

We'll Call It Love

My daughter loves her brother very much and sometimes she leaves him notes to let him know just how much...
Isn't that nice? :/

Where the Wild Things Are

This was absolutely beautifully made. We saw this today and I loved it. The story and the characters could be a little scary for smaller children but my kids thought it was great. I couldn't agree more.

Obama Wants Moms To Go Back To School

Now the idea is really nice, isn't it? But, please explain to me the concept behind the ad with the dancing shadow doing the butter churn and the running man because I don't see myself or my mom for that matter being that excited about going back to school. Really, who does that? And why do I have to be bombarded by it on every website I go to. It's ridiculous and I don't get it! Someone needs to get fired. Seriously.

P.S. And I know you've seen it and feel the same way as I do because how can you not?

Starburst FaveReds


Have you seen these? I have! And this is the way things should be done. They are delicious! No more stray candies lying around because that green one always tastes like nothing I've ever had or can compare to in nature. Gross.

And they're Gluten-Free to boot. Although, I haven't really done anything in that department yet. I will, though.

Getting Back on Track

I'm trying to get back on track lately. I've been busy with the kids and their after school activities and by the time I get around to going online and updating I'm too tired and have no thoughts left to write about. I hope to be a little more enthusiastic about this as the week progresses. I've also been feeling a bit dysphoric. Just not myself. My thyroid has the tendency to mess with me in the worst way. Sometimes its pain all over and other times it's fatigue that leaves me not wanting to do anything. I'm trying to go gluten free again but it hasn't been the easiest task. When I do start, I usually end up hungry and anxious, but I guess I have to give it more time. The thing is that I also enjoy cooking new meals and I'd hate to miss out on a new dish. I have to make the sacrifice, though. I need to feel better.

Saturday Blues

It's Saturday. It's been a while since I last posted but I haven't been able to motivate myself enough to write. My daughter had a soccer game this morning and then we went and did a bit of grocery shopping and have been home since. I guess it's just been one of those weeks. I promise to come back soon enough with more. Right now I'm gonna go stuff my face full of nachos. I need the salt. Back soon.
