go to gurus

I’ve been on a makeup buying rager lately. I think it’s a side effect of my weight loss because maybe I’m seeing more results that I actually realize. But, I also have to point a finger at YouTube. Watching beauty videos have been part of my nightly routine for almost 10 years now. Over the years, the faces on my…

thursday thoughts: they’re all over the place.

It’s Thursday and I have thoughts. DEMI LOVATO the fact that I don’t look or sound remotely like her is rude, annoying and frankly, a little insulting. she’s just so pretty, her voice is amazing, she’s dated Wilmer Valderrama AND a Jonas brother (not the one I would pick, but either way). I would take a week of being Demi’s doppelganger.…

RANT & RAMBLE: …maybe it’s me

When I’m at work I eat lunch by myself. It sounds sad, but I wouldn’t have it any other way, honestly. Because, people. I go in to one of our conference rooms, close the door and for the next half hour I veg out with my beloved Youtube videos. Yesterday, I was clicking around and saw a video from one…

thoughts from a youtube addict

Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of making Youtube videos. By toying, I mean that I’ve thought about it, remembered that I hate how my voice sounds on camera, realized I’d have to edit the videos, and then ultimately decided against it. Added to that is the fact that I’m not a consistent blogger so I probably wouldn’t be…

perfect is perfection!

So, One Direction released a music video for their newest single, “Perfect” yesterday. And it is… perfect. except not as perfect as “Night Changes“. Take a look and then come back so that we could analyze it to death. Did you really think I’d have nothing to say about it? First, can I say that I’m liking that Papa Lou is…

Mindy, Etsy and Taylor Swift

How come during the week Friday seems like it will never get here and then it comes and it’s like “woah, Friday already?” Maybe its just me. My work schedule sucks. Anyway, I haven’t done a Friday Five Favorites whatever in a while so I figured, even though nothing I have to say goes with each other, why not? I’ll make it…

the art of the music video

Being a child of the 90’s, I have a special place in my heart for music videos. They were a big deal back in the day, just ask Carson Daly. Remember Pop Up Video on VH1 and Making the Video on MTV? Those were my jams. Nothing better on a Saturday than reading all about who was coming to Melissa…

swooniest swoonfest

One Direction released their video for Night Changes today and it.is.perfect. I can’t even think of what else to say. It is the cutest, most wonderful, swooniest swoonfest ever. I’m 27 years old. I should not be sitting here with the goofiest smile on my face and my heart exploding all over the place. But I am. thanks a lot,…

A Tieks Critique

I have horrible feet. They’re super wide, really flat and they stick out. My ankles, knees and shins only add to the problem. They hurt constantly (not chronically though, thank goodness), I can’t walk for more than 10 minutes without them hurting, and they have a hate/hate relationship with shoes. No matter how many glowing recommendations I get for flats,…
