A few days ago I went to Walgreens and had a giant epiphany…I hate Valentine’s Day!
Or maybe it’s just all of the thoughtless, very odd crap that goes along with it! The strange-looking plush hearts with arms that speak "baby talk." Those really cheesey, EXPENSIVE pieces of jewelry with all the red and hot hot pink enamel
Am I the only one who sees that Open Hearts collection bracelet and wants to throw up?
The 10 pound boxes of chocolates that make even die-hard chocolate lover’s stomachs turn. Really? Does anyone actually want any of that? I know, I know. People always say it’s the thought that counts. But what kind of thought actually goes into purchasing a chocolate foil covered rose at the register while buying foot ointment and deodorant stick?
Not a whole lot!
It’s no secret that the economy sucks…
And when the economy’s in the tank, fashion, retail and shopping can create a wave of frustration. Designers hesitate creatively, retailers continue to shove the word "sale" down shopper’s throats and shoppers don’t know whether to buy into new trends during sales because the word "sale" means to many LAST SEASON!
When most people think about the word sale, they think about long lines, crowds of quick tempered people – ugh!
Who wants that!?
Ugh, it’s that dreaded time of year again…
Arctic wind chills, the need to wear so many layers that you look like that annoying little kid from A Christmas Story in his snow suit. Ice scrapers and salt. And the oh-so-wonderful snow/slush mixture that just makes everything really filthy and gross.
Hold it! Why do we live here in the winter again?!
A few of weeks ago I went to see a show at The Midland by AMC, stepped out of my car and immediately froze my butt off.
Not wanting to wear a coat, hat, gloves, etc was a huge factor. But who wants to carry all that and juggle their $8 beer while trying to maneuver through the masses to the stage?
Calculating wardrobe options to a winter concert can be complicated.
The holidays are here – as in now…
So bring on the decorations and the never-ending Christmas songs about mythical characters who make it cool to pack on the few extra pounds. It’s that one time of year where it’s justifiable to splurge on a shopping excursion. Just as long as you remember to bring home a couple of presents to wrap for the rest of the fam.
Then there’s the most infamous tradition of all…the dreaded holiday office party!
Madonna has one…Lindsay Lohan has one…The Olsen Twins have one…Sean P. Diddy aka Puffy aka Diddy aka Puff Daddy (sheez, this guy has more nicknames than Jesus himself!) has one…
And now Michael Jackson’s brothers are throwing their leather jackets into the ring. Well, in a roundabout way…
Tito, Jermaine, Jackie, and Marlon are catapulting their way into the fashion arena with a new clothing line called J5 to honor their beloved brother and their days as the Jackson 5.
The official color for the month of October? Hint; it ain’t orange and black. But if you happened to say pink, you’re totally in the know! And this month, it’s all about showing off your PINK Pride in support of one almighty cause, Breast Cancer Awareness! So whether you’re blushing in a pastel shade or showing off your electric personality in neon, PINK is the "IT" color to be seen in. Especially if you’re a football player. Continue reading
