Christmas Card Wonderland

I know this "how to" is a little late but I just had to share.  So I made my Christmas Cards this year.  
Basically I took White card stock Damask ribbon Green and Red Ribbon (47 cents each! HOLLA!)
Which I attached with.... This awesome glue pen... there are two ends (fine and thick) which worked out well with the different sized ribbons. Two Stamps...outside and inside of the card. So the Merry Christmas Stamp was a bit pricey ($8) but the Warm Wishes stamp was $1! Awesome ink pads....the ink really did dry fast!!  And they were the cheapest brand! This marker was great....only 99 cents!!

And then the Piece de Resistance..... SPRAY GLITTER priceless folks...priceless! I will say that the glitter did come off of the cards so.. sorry folks but come on... it totally tied it all together!
Grand Total....too much!  But the end result was great.   I think I'll be making cards similar to these for awhile.
I made one similar to this one for a co-worker...this one wasn't sen…

KARDASHIAN HAIR UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!

So for Paul's Christmas party I was determined to rock some Kardashian Hair.  So I headed to Regis salon to have them work their magic....as you can see below.


So here was the result from the salon...great right.
The curls were a little tighter than I'm wearing them.
He did them tighter because my appointment was
at 4:00 and the party was at 8:00. 
Well it's always great when you can have someone do your hair for you but what about recreating it on my own.  So far I have had no luck.  Seriously I kept starting in the same spot that I literally damaged my hair on one side and it no longer curls on it's own.  So I felt helpless hence the trip to Regis.  So I told my hairdresser my curling iron woes and told him that I had literally given up on doing it myself.  He asked what size curling iron I was using.  I told him 2" and he told me....it is too big!  That I need a 1" which is what he used.  So on my way home I made a quick stop at CVS drugstore and bought …

So here are a few pictures from that exciting day with the zoo trip, playground...more playground....


Creepy yet Cool

Season No's

Let me just say that this post might hurt some feelings but I just have to say that what I am about to tell you is the sad truth because so many women in the world have abused these "fashions" so now no one can wear them.
#1 Boots....

Okay so if you look at this picture and think...what is wrong with these?  I am here to tell you.  Let me just set the scene....slightly cool day in Jacksonville....an older (like grandma status) office lady wearing THESE with Bermuda shorts,  black nylons (her boots were slightly lower than shown above), flowly top, peacoat jacket and 80s white girl fro...full on poofy bangs and the sides pulled and sprayed straight out ....yes all of this was her work wear.  This folks is why these boots are a NO.  No matter who I see wearing these (majority of these women are at work) it just never seems appropriate.  Yet you see women on tv/movies wearing them all the time....so how is it that everyone I see just looks like a day stripper or a go go dancer…

Shopping with Paul woes....

I'm literally standing in Best Buy typing this blog on a demo laptop...who needs mobile stuff just go to your local Best Buy and use theirs.  Okay I wanted to come here at first.  I wanted to see the iPad because words cannot describe how bad I want one.  Well after browsing and knowing that I'm not going to tap into J Fund money to buy one I was ready to go.  Well, Paul is not.  He can literally walk around Best Buy and talk to an employee for hours.  I do mean hours.  So I decided to be productive and write a blog.  Well first I put every laptop on my blog so that when people check out the laptops they will be checking out my blog too.  I know .... GENIUS!  Okay seriously Paul is still talking to the guy.  GRRR! And men talk about women taking forever....hello!  Okay well signing off a worker bee is standing over me.  Muah ha ha Shia got a way with it....LOL!
