    christmas carpool

    Can you believe Christmas is in 5 days? I sure can’t. I wanted to share with you not one but TWO early Christmas gifts I got and am googly eyed over. And they’re from a celebrity! I kid. I kid. They’re the newest Carpool Karaoke segments from one of my many celebrity husbands, James Corden. Last Tuesday he released the long-awaited (for me, anyway) Bruno Mars collab. It was, as expected, amazing. My favorite part was when James said that his woman wouldn’t be wearing Versace, she’d be wearing Target. ya damn right, boo. Then, on Thursday, Jimmy dropped the All I Want for Christmas is You mix. As I’ve mentioned before,…

    DJ martina on the ones & twos

    I’m probably not someone who should give musical recommendations but guess what I’m here today with. Well, maybe not recommendations, per say. More like what I have on repeat lately. I feel like I should put it out there from the get-go: As of late, I can’t handle the regular radio. I like to listen to my local morning show  when I can, but that’s about it. I just can’t take the playlists of the same 5 or so songs constantly. That being said, I have about 5 songs that I rotate on my Spotify constantly that I’m going to share with you right now. #irony. I Can Hear the Bells…

    late thanks

    *ignores the fact that i haven’t posted in two weeks even though i had every intention to. also ignores the fact that all of the posts i had written in my head are long forgotten so we’ll just pick it up from here. How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Mine was super chill, filled with family, food and football. SO. MUCH. FOOTBALL. I love to complain, as we all know, but I also have a lot to be thankful for this year. I’ll list some because, why not? You don’t have to only feel gratitude on the last Thursday of November. The last Wednesday works also. new music from bruno mars – I’ll admit…

    cool your jets, b

    Ok, so here’s the deal. I have a little less than an hour to write this post. I’m scheduling it because I have to be at work tomorrow way earlier than usual. This post falls into the category of “maybe I shouldn’t post this because I’m not sure of what to say and how to say it” with the sub-category of “maybe you shouldn’t rush this one, Martina.” I’m willing to give it a go. If you’re reading this, I’ll virtually accept that pat on the back. Thanks. By now I’m sure everyone has seen and/ or has heard about the Superbowl’s Half Time show. Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Beyonce.…

    playing catch up

    It’s been about a week since I’ve last posted and it feels like a lifetime. At work, we are going full force with our annual Silent Auction and guess who is running “lead”. That’s right, yours truly. We’re about a month behind, which is totally not my fault. I usually pick up the project when donations start to come in and they’re not rolling in like they usually do. It’s driving me nuts because I have a female Gordon Ramsey for a boss. Actually, she really reminds me of Abby from Dance Moms. Yes. It’s that bad. She’s been OK so far. I’m just waiting for the blowout. I get stressed thinking…
