Me in a nutshell

I love a polished natural makeup look. I am forever searching for the ideal pinky/brown lipstick. I am an avid reader of comic books, I love to observe people Mystery Science 3K style and I heart bunnies.

I Heart

Bunnies, KFC, thrift stores, confidence, quirkiness, Lost and watching the trainwreck that is known as Tyra Banks.

Tell Us More

eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal

I love the frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Thow one on the old Forman grill for a few minutes with some lime juice and add a bit of cheese and cilantro when cooked. Plus a salad with lots of cilantro. I've recently become enamored with cilantro. My husband thinks it smells like dish soap though.

beauty & fashion: I can skip these

I hate belts. I'm long waisted so if something comes with a belt it's way too high up on me. I also HATE Uggs, fake tanning, 80's type clothes ( I will not revisit clothing I wore in grade school), sandals that show too much foot, red lipstick (on me…too bright),

I NEVER go without these

cardigans, long flowy skirts, peachy pink blush, flesh colored lip stick, flip flops, ballet flats, lilac scented anything, big tote bags

Biggest splurge or steal in my closet

I love Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers handbag line. I get them super cheap at a discount store but bought one at regular price cause I HAD to have it and of course it was at the discount store the next month.
Biggest steal was a Polo Ralph Lauren leather jacket for $5 when I worked at Lord and Taylor.

do-gooder: Why I am one

I deal with tourists almost daily. Every day that I do not explode on them for being so ill prepared is an act of kindness on my part.
Ladies… please call or check the internet next time you go on a trip. It's the small things.

Atlas Shrugged, Confederates in the Attic, any Jodi Picault book, Twilight (yeah, I'm on THAT bandwagon but just read the first book and pretend the others don't exist)

Favorite bands

home & living:My favorite room in my house

My living room, it's cozy and airy.

potluck:Five people (dead or alive) I’d invite to a party

Lindsay Lohan, Tyra Banks, Gwen Stefani, Steven King, and Benjamin Franklin (I have to add one of our forefathers, might as well be one that was a so called "Playa". You know him and La Lohan would get it on)

If I were an 80’s movie/tv/music star, I’d be

Debbie Gibson. I adored her wholesome image and style and loved her fluffy bob. The closest I got to her was her Electric Youth perfume. I couldn't be DEbbie Gibson but I could smell like her.
