March Bucket List Completions

Got to a Hawks game

Even though I have already bought a car (mostly by myself), this is my first car purchase/nightmare that was done allllllll alone. I like to think of it as my dad’s birthday present this year, instead of a cupcake. You’re looking at my new baby, Blakely. Named after the city my dad is from. She’s a 2017 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L. Here she is in all her glory. Insert smiley face with heart eyes.

I can identify with too many of these – Short People Problems

In the past year I’ve noticed the number of people in unhappy marriages increase. This is interesting. As well as this.  (Divorce rate for a woman who gets married before the age of 29 is 80%. For men, it’s 72%. The average age for couples going through their very first divorce is 30.)

Has anyone tried this? I’ve heard good things about the Living Proof line, but nothing about this product.

I can’t believe we lost two great comedians recently. Heaven should be a lot funnier with those two.

Weekly Roundup and Random Things

Check out this post: My boobs don’t need your husband to see them: or, you probably think this pic is about you. The author of the original post is just an idiot. An insecure idiot. And their are other idiot women that agree with her. Wow. No words.

Along those same lines, I found this post, 27 times porn lied to us about sex in the real world, rather funny.

SO glad I found this post, Dear Men: This Is Why Women Have Every Right To Be Disgusted With Us, because yessssss, this is the shit women deal with!!!

Spring/Summer Shoes

 

 

 

 

A week or so ago I ran to the mall to buy all the things pick up one item at Sephora. Across from Sephora is Macy’s. I thought I’d run upstairs to check to see if they had any wedges I might like. Mistake numero uno. Not only did I find wedges, I tried on multiple shoes that I feel in love with. Somehow I showed restraint and didn’t end up buying 4 pairs of shoes.

Campsonne Pump

These may not seem like anything but special, but they are, especially on. I fell in love. As I was reluctantly putting the shoe back, I saw a young couple looking at the other shoe. I told them that it was a hot, sex shoe. The man was like, oh man, now she’s definitely going to want them! haha!

I also tried on this gorgeousness. I mean, it matches the purse I bought for my 30th birthday.. This is what I like to refer to as the Oh, I am getting some tonight shoe.

Wish List

Every year for my birthday I spoil buy myself presents. When you don’t have a S.O., why not?? This year was special because not only did my dad’s house finally sell, it’s the year I turn 30! Natch, I spoiled myself a little extra.

I usually have a hard time coming up with things to tell my friends to get me. My wish list tends to be expensive, and I just can’t ask my friends to buy me stuff that’s expensive. I usually end up saying to just get me a gift card, that way I can spend it how I like, especially if I get a few of them. I have however come up with a birthday wish list. Here are a few items on it. You know you’re getting old when your birthday wish list contains furniture. 😉

When I first saw this outfit I thought ohhh how fun! I’ll have to figure out what to be (there was no description). After little thought, it came to me. I’ll be a dominatrix. So natch some gfs and I had bottomless mimosas and proceeded to go to the porn shop, where I proceeded to buy a riding crop and test it out on my friends in the store. hahaha Oh good drunken times.

If You Really Knew Me

Last weekend I went shopping with my bestie to buy myself a 30th birthday present. Our last stop was the Michael Kors store where I found two bags that I liked. The bags were the same color, the same price, only the detailing was different. I couldn’t figure out which bag I liked more. One bag had 3 compartments with a zipper in the middle, separating the two sides. The other bag was a little smaller but had a cute tassel on the handle. I’m such an organized freak that I loved the bigger bag with the three compartments, but I really loved the smaller bag with the tassel too.

I asked Ashley for her opinion and she liked the smaller bag with the tassel. She thought the bigger bag was a little plain. So I’m standing there in front of the mirror with a bag on each arm trying to figure out which bag I like the best, when the sales lady comes over to help me. She asked if I was trying to decide which bag I liked and I told her I was. Another customer walked by and she told me she liked the bigger bag with the compartments the best. The sales lady, who looks to be around 24 tells me that she also likes the bigger bag. I call Ashley over and tell her that they both like the bigger bag. She reminds me that I’ll be the one carrying it so I should get whatever bag I like the best.

With Ashely and the sales lady standing there, waiting for me to just pick a bag already!, the sales lady says that I seem pretty conservative, so she would go with the bigger bag. Ashley dies laughing and says, “seems conservative, if you only knew her!” and walks off. The sales lady gives me a questioning look and I tell her that yes, while I appear to be conservative, if she knew my personality she would know that, in fact, I am not in a lot of ways. To that she responded with, “Well what ever you’re doing, keep doing it because it’s working for you!”. haha Love her!

I get told that all the time. I get some version of conservative, quiet, sweet, innocent.. Is it because I have a baby face and look like I’m 23? If you really knew me, you’d know that I am not quiet, I am not that conservative, and I am definitely not that innocent. Not at 29 years old. I like to call it being a realist.

Like Luda says, we want a lady in the streets but a freak in the bed. 😉

Atlanta Malls – Lenox and Phipps

C01-thumb

If you live in Atlanta, it seems like on every corner there is a building undergoing construction. Lenox Square Mall is no different. It is currently being remodeled on the outside and new restaurants are going inside. There is a plan for some residential units, which should prove interesting.  The image above is the last image released, which has more metal on the front.

Roots Juices just recently opened in Shops Around Lenox. They’ll be open seven days a week serving pressed fruit and vegetable juices. I’m excited to check it out!

Sprinkles. As in, the famous cupcake place in NYC and LA. The place I blogged about here that has a cupcake ATM in LA. Yep, Lenox is getting one! eeeeee!!

True Food Kitchen is a restaurant that’s based on Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. Menu options such as kale, quinoa, seabuckthorn and acai “help customers fell better, live longer and be confident about the health benefits of their choices,” says an announcement. The chain has six locations currently.

Zinburger Wine and Burger Bar They’ll take “high profile spots” at the front entrance of the mall. The restaurant will offer a “mouthwatering selection of gourmet burgers, salads and sides, decadent shakes and desserts, and a carefully crafted array of wines,” according to an announcement.

It was also announced that the other Buckhead mall, Phipps Plaza, will be home to the fifth U.S. location of the shoe store Giuseppe Zanotti. It will cover almost 1,500 square feet on the main level. SWEET!

Victoria’s Secret Shoes

As I was flipping through my Victoria’s Secret magazine the other night, I came across some shoes I am dying for.

20120928-103405.jpg

The first thing I did was look on their website for them. When I didn’t find them, I tweeted DON because she knows everything! Yesterday after googling them and not finding them I emailed Victoria’s Secret asking them. The following email is what they sent back.

20120928-104527.jpg

Well since I went thru a lot of trouble to email you, obviously I want to know where they are from…so how about finding our for me? Geez!

Running Shoes

As I’m really getting back into working out, I noticed that I need some new shoes. What do we think?

La La Land

My friend Laura decided to start a blog!

You may remember her from here..

Or not, because I never posted that pic. She’s funny, loves wine, she’s sarcastic, and is obsessed with MAC makeup. She’s cool in my book! SO, go read her blog here.

Fall

I’ve always said that the summer is my favorite season. Hello, everyone looks better tan. I think my favorite season might actually be fall! Probably due to the cooler air and all things pumpkin related, not to mention I have a fall birthday.

While browsing for a bridal gift, I stopped in The Limited to look at their fall line. I fell in love with so many things in store that I had to check their stuff out online due to time.maroon skinny jeans 

which also comes in these colors

faux leather mini

faceted square cocktail ring

fold over clutch

enamel hexagon buckle belt

faux leather mini

merino blend v-neck sweater 

which comes in these lovely colors

While in the store I did manage to try on this combo and loved it!

high heel penny loafers

flower statement necklace

 I finally made it over to VS to buy my friend’s bridal gift but this sexy little number caught my eye, so I had to try it on. I need a man. ha

metallic lace teddy

Target also has some really cute items. I snapped a pic of these flannel shirts.

Know what else I love about fall?! Candles! Especially Bath & Body Works’ candles.

Leaves is hands down my favorite fall scent. I have two in my living room and I can’t get enough.

Apple Crumble smells amazing in the kitchen! I bought this last year and I love it.

I’m not sure if Autumn or Farmstand Apple are new scents, but they smell amazing too!!

Of course you can’t mention fall without mentioning Starbucks. I do love a PSL {pumpkin spice latte} but my favorite fall/winter drink they carry is the salted caramel hot chocolate. Holy yum!

It’s A 10

Have you heard of the hair care line It’s a 10? I’ve heard about it from other people and blogs but I never bought any until my hair stylist highly suggested it. I LOVE IT! I use the Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin.

I highly suggest buying some especially if you’re tired of damaged hair! It’s not cheap {or too expensive} given what it does. I recommend getting some at Ulta and if you don’t like it you can always return it. You’re welcome.

Fall

Is anyone else ready for some cooler weather? I was in the mall last weekend when I was home and I noticed several stores had out all things fall.

I am dying for all of this!!

20120804-102634.jpg

This black wire pumpkin with fall smelling potpourri is so pretty!

20120804-103120.jpg

How pretty would this be in a tall vase?!

20120804-103322.jpg

This wreath would look so good on my front door!

20120804-103416.jpg

I’m not usually one to go all out with seasonal decor, but these salt and pepper shakers are too cute!! All of these items are at Hallmark.

Best Sister Ever

I have the best sister ever. Not just because she buys me things… Okay, that too. But seriously? She really is awesome. She gets me better than anyone and I can give her a look and she knows what I’m thinking without saying anything.

A few weeks ago I told her I wanted some gold balls TWSS and she mailed them to me!

20120803-162411.jpg

Here they are on!

20120803-162508.jpg

The past month we have really needed each other. I’m so glad that we went through ups and downs together. I can’t think of a better person to spend that time with. When she couldn’t stop crying, I made her laugh. I’m sure I annoyed the hell out of her at times but I wouldn’t trade this last month with her for anything! Oh and she also gave me these Stella & Dot earrings bc her ears are too sensitive. Win!

20120803-163108.jpg

Thank you for being born awesome! I love you!
