Cheers, 2012!

Well, 2012.
It's been real, it's been fun; and you have had your moments of real fun.
But, thank the good Lord above that you are over and done with.
Sashay away now, your fifteen minutes (actually 365 days) of fame is over.
I am not going to go through every little spec of my past year, because that would not only bore you, but I would probably fall alseep with drool all over the keyboard if I had to do that. As I always state, I am not the most interesting person on the face of the planet; sue me! But, I will just briefly list a few of the cool things that happened this year.
Let's start with I got accepted into the college that I wanted to get into (even though it's a state college and anyone who can inhale and exhale can get accepeted to).  I also got scholarship money for being a fabulicious human being (AKA: for being an artsy farsty girl who liked to be in the drama club). I also flipping graduated, holla holla! Among other things, I also turned 18, worked crazy hours, met amazing people, had many expensive dinners and spent way too much money on nail polish. I started and finished my first semester of college and survived another crazy two weeks of holiday hours at work. Yep, 2012. You weren't all that shabby.
 Don't let my little upper paragraph fool you. I did a lot of things in 2012, I just can't even begin to talk about all the random crap I have done that I loved, but I don't want to write all that and you probably don't wanna read it. So, I will leave that as that. So, there!

Speaking of which, 2013.
You better be freaking good, because if not, we have some major beef.
Now now. Here comes that time in the post where I talk about my new years resolutions.
I am not one of those people who think they are pointless, it's all about how serious you are going to take them. I believe in 2013 bucketlists or things you want to accomplish. So, I guess I will share some of mine.
1. Eat healthier & exercise; I actually really need to do this for my health, to keep all weird family medical things away. So, I am taking this one very serious, and I am going to try my best to lose just about 10 pounds, if that's at all possible.
2. Meet new people; I am usually outgoing, but to new people I am shy. Go figure. So, I want to try to talk to new people and make new friends on campus, so I am not the loner girl who carries around her laptop everywhere because she has no friends. #bloggerlife
3. Work on procrastination; notice how I didn't say stop. I just know that's impossible, but I am going to try my best to not be that girl who is working on that five page paper at midnight when it's due at 8 AM. I would have less stress and need less coffee. (though I would never pass up a coffee!)
Goodbye 2012!
It was nice knowing ya.
Oh, and we are never ever getting back together.
Like, ever.

It's Friday, Friday, I really have to go to work on Friday.

^ Because Glee rocks this song tens times harder ^

Happy Friday, kittykats.
For all of you wonderful people who got this week off and is enjoying this post by sitting down at around 10 AM, drinking a cup of coffee and just relaxing: I envy the crap out of you.
I have to work. And work some more. And maybe when I am done, work again.
The pattern then repeats itself all weekend until New Years Eve, which I work work and hopefully get out early. #holla
Well, since everyone seems to be in a bloggy schlump this week, and we all just kinda suck at making posts, I decided to jump on the sucky post bandwagon and be the super-duperest laziest girl ever and be prompted by doing Friday Letters, without doing the link-up. Cause that makes me a boss.

Dear Wallet, I am sorry that I have not been feeding you as often as I should. But just you wait, little bugger, I have some nice big green slabs of wonderfulness coming your way! You will be full, or atleast fed, in just a little while.
Dear Christmas, I am so glad that you are over.
Dear Holiday Hours, You freaking suck, you little fun sucker! I have no life and I haven't worn real clothes in weeks because of you. I hate you and I wish that you would leave. Thank God it's almost the New Year and I can go back to my regularly scheduled hours. You leave me with extra money and no way to use any of it because you take up all my free time. Yeah, I hate you a lot, pal.
Dear Tall Person, Thanks for always being so kind and caring. Oh, and gracious. Yeah, that's a quality you don't get from most people. So, four for you for just being totes rad. Oh yeah, and for giving the most awkward hugs ever. Yup, they are awkward, but they are you.
Dear Ralph Lauren Bracelet, Goodness I love you so much but WHY MUST YOU BE A PAIN TO PUT ON EVERY MORNING?!!?
Dear Coffee, Hey buddy, thanks for never abandoning me. You always have my back no matter what it is greatly appreciated. You are hot when I need you, and nice and ice cold when I need you. You know exactly what I want. You are always so understanding and forgiving.
Dear Readers, Sorry I suck lately at blog posts, but my life is super un-interesante at the moment, but things should be picking up when my good old friend Holiday Hours leaves town. But, I love you guys for putting up with me through all of this. You da, you da best.

Holiday Regrets, but not really.

Well guys, the holidays are over, and I am sure some of us have a few regrets.
So, I am going to admit all the things that I am moderately ashamed of.
But, you know. I am going all Katy Perry on this: no regrets, just love.

It's totally okay to....
1. Eat Christmas cookies like it's my job.
I don't even care if anyone was judging me as I kept sticking my hand into the tray of cookies and picked out all of the peanut butter balls and the peanut butter blossoms. They are yummy and I don't care what people say, I am in love with them. (yes, I quote Leona Lewis, haters gonna hate)
I am pretty sure that I probably looked like a fat slobone eating all the cookies, but somebody needs to eat them.
2. Not having a gift for someone even though they give you one.
I am usually so on top of gifts and I never forget anyone, but sometimes people sneak up on you like a ninja and call you over alone and give you something and you have absolutely no idea what to do with but try to contain your face of shock and say ""
3. Over-do gifts for your besties.
Again, I like giving gifts. So, I like to see my friends faces when I give them gifts. When I gave my best friend Michele her Christmas gift I loved seeing her open it because I litereally bought her so much stuff, I couldn't stop buying her things. I pulled out all the stops. I also put a lot of thought into things I give. One of my friends drives a gray pick-up truck, so I bought him a mini match box truck and painted it gray. He loved it. Oh yeah, I am that good. I just like to show the people I love in my life that I do indeed love them (even though I may insult them on the daily, ngl)
4. Pretend to like gifts from family.
My family either hits the nail on the head with gifts, or totally have an epic fail moment. This Christmas, was a little but of both. I got $30 bucks worth of Dunkin and a nice check, but everything else was just eh. But, you know you have to make it seem like you love it and make it seem like you just recieved a unicorn.
5. Listening to "real" music on Christmas.
Wouldn't you think that on Christmas you would actually want to listen to Christmas music, but on the drive to my Nana's house I popped in my new XTina CD and was jamming hardcore. I was so freaking sick of Christmas music, I would strangle even Michael Buble if I heard any type of Christmas melody come out of his mouth on Christmas day. I was having a grand old time screaming "ALL IIII WANNNAAAA DOOOO ISSS LOVEE YAAA BODDYYY OHOOOHHOOOHHHOOOOHHHHH!!"

So, Christmas is over. Now what?

Well, since I haven't really talked about my ever-so exciting life in a while, I decided that a post-Christmas post would be moderately interesting.
Over the weekend I got together with a few of my best friends who I either haven't seen in a while or at all in the past few months, so that we could get together for the holiday. Being in colleges all over really don't help the friendship bonding. So, we all went out to a dinner just to celebrate Christmas and enjoy the food and company, rather than spending money on stupid gifts that you feel obligated to buy. We had a great dinner, and a fun time being together again.
first: lindsey and i // second: all of us
Sunday I had the production of the Christmas play that I have been working on being performed at my church. Your homegirl here wrote and directed the entire sha-bang. From soup to nuts, baby. I was so proud of how it turned out and I am glad that all of our hard work paid off. (along with all of my panic attacks and OCD moments)
first: my view from the upper sound booth // second: my view from the first row
Christmas Eve was just a whole bunch of frustration. Myself, along with my co-workers were totally frustrated and annoyed at the fact that we were working and it was our third line-out-the-door kind of day. Literally. But, I did get to give Michele her Christmas gift which she loved, yay! And I also got to give other gifts to my favorite boys at work. They are just so freakin' cute, you would have sworn I gave them a puppy. But, once the day was over, I got to go home (after being the last one to leave, tyvm) and went to church and then out to dinner with my parents.
You thought that I was kidding about the line out the door, huh?
But, there is always one thing that puts a smile on my face: opening presents on Christmas morning.
Now, you may be wondering to yourself, did Santa read my blog and get me everything I wanted?
Pretty much, I can say so.
Go Santa! Four for you, Santa!
first: michael kors wallet // second: gift cards from family & friends // third: vs bodyspray
fourth: glitter boat shoes // fifth: vs yoga pants & yoga underwear // sixth: vera wang flats
seventh: kate spade iphone case // eigth: alex and ani's // ninth: taylor swift items
Among other things, these were a few of my favorite gifts that I recieved this Christmas.
So, thanks bunches Santa. You done did good, fat man.

And here is how I spent my afternoon:
Then, I fell into a Christmas cookie coma.
The End.

Obligatory Christmas Post.

Because my life is crazy busy and I have so much going on at once until the new year happens.
Ya know, like waiting on undeserving customers at 8 AM who are yelling at me about their pasta.
I wanted to take a little time out and wish you all a Merry Christmas, considering it's Christmas Eve.

Christmas is alway my favorite holiday because people are always so giving and caring; again, unless you are the customers at my job, then you are ungrateful and just a bunch of Scrooge's who don't care if I walk you to your car with heavy bags, just as long as you have the perfect cold cuts for your anitpasto. I love giving to people, which is why I love going out Christmas shopping and wrapping gifts. I always think about what people are going to think and what embarassing faces they will make when they open it, whethers it's of happiness or of hatred. I like to give, and I am an over-giver. If I see something you would like, I keep buying until my wallet is empty. Case in point, my best friend Michele. I couldn't stop buying for her: it became a problem. I went to a few meetings and everything is better now.
I also like to recieve. I know that sounds super duper awful. I know, gasp in shock.
Judge me all you want.
But, you can't tell me that when someone hands you a pretty package with your name on it wrapped with a shiny bow, you aren't excited as heck to open up that sucker and see what the heck is inside.
Yeah, I know you would be on my side.
Especially if it's cookies or any kind of baked item.
Shout out to my girl Felicia's mom for making some bomb oreo balls. Holla holla!
But, let's not forget what it's really about over here.
Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus.
Yeah, I am going all church on you, so bear with me.
It's all about the amazeballs birth of Jesus and how he saved all of mankind by coming down from Heaven to Earth. I mean, I wouldn't want to leave my streets of gold for people like us, so I give him props.
So, here is to Jesus, for being born and saving my life.

My grown up Christmas list: Not the sappy kind.

Whenever I hear that sappy Christmas song "My Grown Up Christmas List", it always makes me depressed. It talks about how they just everyone to be happy and blah blah blah. I mean, not that they don't have a valid point; it just really weighs on your emotions. So, I decided what I would put on my own grown-up Christmas list. Cause we all know that Santa can't fit everything we actually want down the chimney.
Whitney totes beat me to the punch here, but I would want Adam Noah Levine.
The man that breathed the same air as me that one time when he was in Mansfield, MA.
His voice, his tattoos, his $600 ripped white v-necks. All of it. All day, everyday.
Lunch with Taylor Swift.
I mean, OBVIOUSLY we are twins so we see each other all the time, but I would want to actually sit down and maybe have a cup of tea and just talk about life, sundresses, Joe Jonas, John Mayer and cowboy boots. I think it would be a fun time. I would totes pick her brain about all her songs.
Endless supply of yoga pants.
I mean, this really doesn't even need an explination because they are so comfy.
And, they make the small little rear I have look moderately decent. HOLLA.
For my red lipstick to look perfect every single time.
I have my good days with the red on those days when I feel like being a little silly on a rainy day when I have one class on that random Thursday. But, when I need it to look good when I want to go out to dinner with my friends, it looks like the lipstick canister exploded, or my lips are as dray as a desert.
Dance with Bruno Mars.
I love this man and the more I see him singing on my television and being all funky with his band, the more it makes my love for him grow. I would love to dance with him (and maybe his band, like this). He has such spunky energy and I think that our ADHD would work well together.
My own personal barista.
I want to be able to wake up in the morning and walk out to my kitchen and have the happy smiling face of my own personal barista who has my latte made just right. Then, as the day goes on, they just follow me around and have the ability to just make me coffee where ever and whenever. Hey, a girl can dream, right?

Monday, December 17, 2012

Sometimes a girl needs a cup of coffee...or five.

If I were a car, my fuel would be on low, and the little gas light would be blinking and popping up at the worst times, like when you are on a stretch of highway and really hope you make it to your destination. Also, if I were a car, I would want to be a yellow VW bug. But, I guess that's besides the point.
I am so flipping tired. Like, forever.
This weekend has been kicking my butt, or if you will, draining my gas. I get up in the morning a miserable little son of a gun and scoot my butt into some yoga pants and my Nikes and throw on my black polo and sweatshirt, put a little dab of makeup on (actually, fifteen minutes worth) and begin to curse the day I ever got my job. I stop at Dunkin and get my first round of caffeine and I am set from about 7:45 AM to just about 10:30 AM.
I swear I have a caffeine problem.
This one time, back in the day, I didn't drink anything with caffeine for two weeks for a fast, and then my body was literally so sick that my parents forced me to drink a Diet Coke, and as soon as the caffeine hit me, I was even more sick. It took me about three days to get back to normal. True story, bro.
But, anyway. I am pretty sure that I drink close to three-four cups of coffee a day. I despise hot coffee, so I always drink iced. I never get a small. I always get a medium. I drink a lot of coffee, point blank. Mix those three coffees inbetween cans on cans on cans of Diet Coke. I have to be caffeined up at all times in order for me to do anything.
So, this morning, when I woke up and my bones are achey, my muscles are crying, my head is pounding and my body absolutely refuses to get out of bed, the only thing that keeps me going is thinking about that glorious 7 AM coffee.
Oh boy, I can taste it now.
But, you are certainly mistaken if you think I don't crash.
Well, I mean, Granted that I already am living the grandma lifestyle: Home before 9:30 PM and in bed going to sleep by 10 PM. When I leave from hanging out with friends and they have plans I tend to send them text messages like these:


Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Barista, hit me again.

It's Wednesday.
It's totally official.
As of 12:30 this afternoon I will be done with this semester.
Now, you would probably think that I have had everything under control this entire week.
Ha, if you think that you are totally mistaken, my kind friends. I have been one hot mess, it isn't even funny. I am pretty sure there hasn't been a day in the past seven days where I actually looked presentable to the general public. I have been stressed, anxious and everything is just givng me a pounding headache. Homie don't play that, fo' real.
But, it's all dont today.
Praise the Lord.
In honor of my last day for the semester, I am going to share with you what I am going to be doing with all my free time until Christmas.
Which may or may not (most likely may) include things like this:
All I can say for sure is that I will be visiting my favorite person in the entire universe - the barista - at work on the reg and getting some iced capps, iced coffees, double espressos and gallons of Diet Coke just to make it throught this holiday season.
After all boys and girls, it's the most wonderful time of the year.

Santa, baby...did you get my letters?!

Santa best be reading my blog, or else he isn't going to know what I really want for Christmas.
And, his visits onto the blog and the elves visits will give me a few extra views at the end of the day.
But, friends. Today, I bring you the struggle. 
The question is always asked around turkey day.
What do you want for Christmas, little girl? 
Ya know what, I really don't know.
But, I guess if I had to pick a few things that my life wouldn't mind having in it, I would pick the following. (Santa, take notice!)
Michael Kors Wallet | I have the bag that matches the wallet, and what girl doesn't want to have everything match? I mean, you are cray cray if you never had your wallets match your bag, or your lipstick match your shoes.
BCBG Bracelets | I think that the sayings that they have are super cute and I lovelovelove leather band bracelets, they are comfortable and don't leave my skin feeling all...metal-like.
Ralph Lauren Beaded Bracelet | I always think that these look super classy and elegant. You can wear it all by itself with a dress or make it casual and stack some other bracelets on the same arm and get some really nifty looking arm candy.
Betsey Johnson Watch | Her stuff is just so stinking adorable and I fell in love with her watches. I always really wanted a Michael Kors one, but I think that Betsey's are really fun and have great colors. And she has watches that have leopard print - amazeballs!
PINK Yoga Pants | So comfortable. So cute. The end.
iPhone Cases | I have a super huge problem with buying new cases. It's like a drug and I am addicted. I have seen some really great ones coming out from Kate Spade and I would love to get my hands on the "call me crazy" one.
PINK Bodyspray | These little guys always smell wonderful and I am obssessed with wearing them. All the scents are great and it's by Victoria Secret, so obviously it's amazing. And, that's just one step closer to me becoming Miranda Kerr.
Concert/Play Tickets | I would kill to see Maroon 5 again when they tour this winter. I mean, who wouldn't want to see Adam Levine singing "One More Night" getting all sweaty and dancing around like he has to tinkle. I mean, those are the good moments! But, I would also love to see the show "Million Dollar Quartet" that comes to a local performing arts theater because I love the music they use in the show and it reminds of "Jersey Boys" which I loved.
Gift Cards | Honestly, I would love anyone forever. iTunes, VS, Target, Starbucks, Dunkin, anywhere! Less money I have to spend, the  better!
Essie Nailpolish | Doesn't need any explination, to be quite honest.

Is it really just another manic Monday?

Why, hello there blogger beings.
I hope that this Monday is filled with extreme amounts of caffeine, short to-do lists and maybe even a cozy nap. I mean, that's what I would like about a Monday, if there were actually anything to like.
Yes, this is one of those typical pointless Monday posts.
I can totally feel your enthusiasm through your computer screens. I can feel all the love.
This Monday is actually a good one for me, surprisingly. Today is the last day I will have to sit in a classroom for about a month and a half. Insert amazing amounts of cheering. Today I am handing in a final, and siting through my last math class of the semester. Hallelujah and praise the Lord, now somebody pass me an espresso! The only other school related thing that happens this week is my math final which is on Wednesday, then I am done. D. O. N. E. Then I have the honor and privledge of starting holidays hours at work. Can somebody say open to close for twelve days straight?! Yeah, I didn't think anyone could. My twleve days of Christmas will not be filled with my true love giving my stupif gifts like turtles doves, but it will be filled with customers screaming at me because when they got home they had meat ravioli instead of cheese. The struggle is real.
But, in other news; Christmas is coming and I am thrilled.
Which reminds me I need to finish up some shopping.

If my life were an e-card.

Whoa there, champs: It's Friday!
I am just one happy camper over here. Why, you may be asking (and if you aren't asking, then you should be). Well, today officially marks my last day of classes for my Fall semester. YIPPEE! Let's break out the icecream and celebratory dance music.
I can only hope that your Friday will be just as amazeballs.
In other news, let's get on to the real reason why I have gather you here today.
I have been obssessed with e-cards for the longest time and I find them to be quite amusing.
So, I decided to show you my week with e-cards.
Enjoy, folks.
All day, everyday. It is literally a miracle that I am not locked up for killing people, and honestly, no one is exempt from this list. Bad drivers who don't use their blink, smarty pants kids in class, annoying customers, friends who don't text back fast enough, you know the usual.
Because we all have that awkward moment when you open up your wallet and can't help but think you have been robbed, but you really spent all your money on Christmas gifts, at Target and on coffee. Oooppps, just me?
Pretty self-explanatory, no?
Kind of goes hand-in-hand with exhibit A up above.
Forever bringing food to work. Forever always buying something for lunch. Forever being hungry after all the food I hate ate. #italiangirlprobz

Is it really the most wonderful time of the year?

I can totally admit that I love Christmas, just about as much as the next elf, but sometimes Ihave those moments where you just want to start going around hacking down Christmas trees.
Am I the only one?
Table for one. Check please
Now, now. Don't be looking at this post at me with your little judging eyes, because you shouldn't be judging me!  I absolutely guarantee that you are going to agree with all the things that I am about to say. So, put on your ugly Christmas sweater and buckle up, reindeer.
Christmas traffic. You can't even tell me that you all aren't cursing under your breath when you are sitting in a line of cars and then that really old boat car pulls infront of you and it's some grandma who doesn't even wave to thank you for not really letting her out, but letting her out. C'mon now, admit it. Oh, and let's not forget the fact that people forget how to freaking drive when there is traffic. Hey buddy, you stay in your lane and I'll stay in mine. Oh, oh! And, ITS' CALLED A BLINKER, BUTTFACE.
Long waiting lines. I am the most impatient person in the entire universe so I don't have time to be standing around doing nothing waiting for some cashier to ring me out. Whichever store I manage to go into, they are always really slow. I mean, when I am at work and we are waiting on people we wanna get them in and out and make it as painless as possible, but when I am sitting in a line for more than five minutes, I start to get hives. Nobody has got time for that. Then when I get closer to the register they always have stuff set up that you want to buy. Yup, I end up buying that stuff. Ohmigawd, look how tiny this chapstick is, I need it! We've all done it.
"Santa Baby". I love Christmas music as we all should know.This song just really gets under my skin. I can't do it. I have heard so many different versions and half the time the women sound so awful singing it that I just want to punch the speakers out. Yes, a song can be too whiny.
Yankee Swap. I am sure this is fun when you don't have to do it all the time, every year. I am actually involved in two of them and the limit is $5. Like, I don't want to be that person who buys a crappy gift, so I never really know what to get. I usually think of something the day of and just wing it. But, the simple fact that I am involved in two, that means that is $10 less that I won't have. I mean, c'mon now, I need coffee money for when holiday hours at work start.
 Claymation movies. I THINK THEY ARE JUST STRAIGHT UP SILLY. Don't hate me, but I would rather be at the dentist than have to watch a stop motion movie. Unless it's this one:

I'm sure even angels have a rough morning or two.

I woke up this morning after getting about five hours of sleep, and all I could think about is getting some coffee into my veins. I would gladly take it in IV form if it helped get into my body faster. I looked in the mirror and saw that my make-up didn't look bad, my mascara was still on my eyelashes, so I dusted some foundation on to cover some icky spots. I threw on boyfriend jeans and a North Face and headed out to Dunkin Donuts and got a large mocha latte. You know there's a problem when I get a large. Now, I am sitting in the last session of my 8 AM English class for the semester and I can only think; What would Miranda Kerr do? Which then got me thinking, I wonder what the Victoria Secret Angels do when they are having a bad morning.
As you can probably tell, I was one of those girls who stayed up and watched the always fabulous VS Fashion Show. I sat on my bed and watched all of the beautiful angels walking around in their little clothes, just being all kinds (not just some kind) of wonderful.
The performances were great, done by Rihanna, Bruno Mars and the swaggerific Bieber.
I thought Ri did a great job with "Diamond" and she looked like she was having a great time and she actually looked pretty fabulous. Finally her awkward clothes actually are an advantage, in all places, the VS Fashion Show. Bieber, you really need to stop growing on me. I thought that he was just completely adorable. Though his voice a little piiiiitchy, he was always a cutie with his facial expressions and how he interacted with the Angels. I also thought it was super cute how the Angels were all excited for him to be there and they all admited to having Bieber-Fever.  Bruno is always a fun time when he performs and it looked like he was having a great time, and his vocals are always spot on, four for you Bruno!
There were countless amounts of mind boggling looks, these were a few of my favorites. I loved the entire opening with the circus theme and the ring master look was my absolute favorite. I am also super partial to Miranda Kerr because I just think she is fabulous and charming - and married to Orlando Bloom! Then I loved the blossom section and I love the colors and I remember seeing them sewing this in one of the background clips and I though the beading/stones were super pretty.
Now, if you excuse me I am going to go cry about how I am not them.
Happy Wednesday!

Obligatory Favorite Christmas Songs Post.

Oh, hi there! Well, since I have been all up in the Christmas spirit lately, I wanted to share my favorite songs of the season because I have been having some awesome duets with Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby since the radios started playing it before Thanksgiving. I saw that Sami did something like over at her blog, and I decided to jump on the holiday music train. Toot toot! Because, as my favorite elf says, the best way to spread christmas cheer is to sing it loud for all to hear. And, let's be honest, I am screaming it loud for all to hear. Thank God I usually drive fast to people next to me when I am driving don't think I am having a seizure while belting out these jams.

Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) - Mariah Carey
This is my fave MC Christmas song, even more than "All I Want For Christmas Is You". I don't even know why I love this song so much, but I just do. I have been listening to this album since back when it was on a cassette. Yup. I would always beg my mom to play the tape in the car and I would sing along in my little kid, off-key voice. But, this song has such a nice beat and I can just bop my head back and forth to it. You go MC and your amazeballs vocals!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays - NSYNC
If you don't love this song, you seriously hate Christmas. You are Ebeneezer. You are Grinch. This song is so flawless (honestly) and I love it. It's so boyband-chic and reminds me of my childhood. I also enjoy this video personally because JT's hair had the blonde tips. Only that boy can make that look cute. But, honestly. I can listen to this song on loop all season and not get sick of it. Which, pretty much happens because this on the Christmas playlist at work and I am forever packing up ravioli singing this song to customers. They love it. Yup yup.
Last Christmas - Glee Cast
I love Glee. I love Lea Michele's voice. I love Christmas. This is just a really a big win-win sitch for me, not even gunna lie about it. I just really love this song and even though I have never given someone my heart for Christmas, I am pretty sure that would suck, right? But, Lea makes it this awfully sad story sound beautiful. Good job, baby.

Cold December Night - Michael Buble
DANG YOU MICHAEL BUBLE. DANG YOU FOR MAKING ME WANT SOMEONE TO CUDDLE WITH AND WEAR CHRISTMAS SWEATERS WITH AND HAVE THEM KISS ME ON A COLD SNOWY DECEMBER NIGHT. DANG IT. That's all I really have to say about this song, besides the fact that his voice is totally flawless, perfect, wonderful, amazing and just, gorgeous. Kinda like him in general, eh?

This Christmas - Christina Aguilera
I always really loved this song and I love Christina's voice and all her awesome little runs. I am also a fan of any chick can make alto singers sound amazing, and she does a good job of that when she has her moments in this song. It's a catchy little diddy that I also sing to my customers at work.
Mistletoe - Justin Bieber
Don't hate. Appreciate. I think this song is adorbs. Well done, Biebs. Everything else, you are still under further questioning.
What's some of your favorite Christmas tunes?
Let me know, so I can put them on the playlist at work so I can sing to the old Italian men.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Happy Monday, divas.
 Hope your weekends were great because mine consisted of nothing but work, mental breakdowns, writing papers and sleeping when needed. Let's just say it was a no bueno kind of weekend. On a bright note, I did get to see my little cousin turn 3! He had a Bob the Builder themed party and was just the cutest little boy ever! But in other news, things should be looking up because this is my last week of classes for the semester. Golf claps! I can't wait for all this garbage to be over so I can just relax and just work my little tail off and make over-time and holiday pay. Holla holla! Let's talk about something happy, shall we? On another note, let's talk about Christmas, shall we?!

Christmastime is my favorite time of the year. I seriously go all Buddy the Elf when it's December.
I love everything about everything! I love the weather, decorating the house, shopping for friends and family, wrapping gifts, listening to Christmas music, the time off from classes, working extra hours, eggnog, baking and all of the other fun stuff. I mean, I could go on for years. But, I will save you the torture and just narrow down my top faves.
Christmas Decorations | I love Christmas trees, nutcrackers and Christmas lights. My mom used to decorate the house full-out Winter Wonderland style my entire life, and now I decided that this year I will decorate the house all on my own and see if I can do it all justice. Every year, I also decorate the outside with my dad. Hanging all the lights and wreaths. The whole sha-bang.
Christmas Music | I can listen to it all year round. I am in lovelovelove with Michael Buble's album, but I also like to jam out to Mariah Carey's when I riding around the town doing errands. I belt out "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" all the freaking time, my dad is already sick of me.
Wrapping Gifts | Yes, I end up cursing the paper when it rips, or when I cut the piece too small, but I totally love wrapping gifts. I like to make them look perfect and I love tieing and curling bows. I honestly think that I should have been an elf. I would be the bomb dot com.
Holiday Flavors | I love getting a coffee with a little gingerbread, eggnog or peppermint flavor. It puts me in a good mood and brings me right into the holiday spirit. I am always down to try new things, so I love when they come out with new and different holiday flavors.
Seasonal Candles | I love walking into my house and smelling my mom burning a candle that smells like Christmas Cookie, or Buttercream Frosting. It's just one of those little things that make you all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
C'mon, tell me what your favorites are!

It's OK Thursday!

Because I have so many planned posts for the future, I don't really have anything too relevant to right now. Just you guys wait, I have so many Christmas posts for you, you are gunna be sick of me!
So today, I give you, a link-up.
It's ok...that I spent $60 bucks on Christmas gifts for my friends all at Target.
It's ok...that I un-knowingly lost three pounds and I have no idea why.
It's ok...that even though I had this weight lost, I have been doing nothing but eating junk.
It's ok...that I was called into work on my day off, and only worked for three hours.
It's ok...that I have no clue what else to buy for my adorable man friend.
It's ok...that I have so much homwork to do for next week.
It's ok...that I am moderately broke and I need more money to get through the week and buy gifts.
It's ok...that Mariah Carey's Christmas album has been playing in my car on repeat all week.
Have a good Thursday, divas!

Walk, walk, fashion, baby: Winter Edition.

When my alarm went off this morning, I hit snooze. I didn't wanna get out of bed because it was cozy and warm. Dangit, my body pillow is a stinking good cuddler and I didn't want to leave. But, it was time to get up because, crap needs to get done. I woke up, checked the weather and saw that it was going to be a wapping 41 degrees today, annnnd, there was snow on the ground. Wandahful. I was already running about fifteen minutes behind because of my love affair with my bed, and I needed to look presentable to go out into the real world. My hair was done and so was my makeup, so then I needed to pick out my outfit. It was going to be cold and I wanted to be comfortable. What the heck man. I finally threw something together and started my day.
What does this have to do with fashion, you are asking yourself as you stare at my post with a furrowed brow. Wait, lovelies! I am going to talk about my go-to pieces for getting ready in the Winter. See, I managed to tie it all in somehow. Don't doubt me.
Peacoats: These guys are just freaking fabulous. I love them because they are not only totally cute, but they also keep you warm. I have a nice one that I bought at Target for like $30, and it keeps me cozy and cuddly and I get tons of compliments on it.
Longsleeves: I have a few of these in my closet. I am never really an extremely casual dresser, but when I am getting ready on a cold morning, I want to just be warm and comfortable. Longsleeves are a staple because you can always add a sweater over them or a vest and still be warm. I always say that having a black and white are the absolute must-have.
Darkwash Jeans: These are a staple for me in general, but I love dark jeans in the winter. I am not one of those girls who feel comfortable in sweatpants. I mean, I do love sweatpants or yogas, but when I am going out and I know people are going to see me, I wear jeans. Jeans make me feel a little but more put together and polished.
Scarves: Scarves help you add a little spice and pizzazz! Especially when I wear a simple top (like a classic longsleeve shirt) I wear a bright colored or patterned scarf to make the look seem a little more interesting,, and they also keep you plenty warm.
Hats: I love hates in the winter! I am a beret or beanie girl. They are perfect for those late mornings (like I had earlier) when you don't want to do your hair, or it's not vibing with you that day. Just curl the ends a little and throw on a hat, and viola! You look chic, like you should be sitting in a cafe somewhere in France.
Boots: I have a few different pairs of boots that I love. I have two different pairs of Vera Wang combat-esque boots that I lovelovelove. But, when I want to be more comfortable than stylish, I would wear Ugg-like boots. Especially on the eastcoast where we get a bunch of snow, I buy knock-off brands so it's okay if the snow ruins them. It's also easy on my feet, which hurt me 24/7.
What are some of your favorite Winter styles?

Turkeys, Birthdays & Fiddlers, oh my!

Well, it's that time of week again. Happy Monday, babycakes.
I hope that you all had a great weekend filled with turkey sandwhiches for days, naps galore and days off work. I know that I enjoyed none of that because all I did was work all weekend and refused to eat anything turkey related at all. #sorryimnotsorry
My Thanksgiving was great, thanks for asking. I went to my old high school's annual football game with my Dad. I met up with a few friends and we chatted and occassionally watched the game. I also had to deal with lots of people I graduated with, and had to pretend like I cared about their lives and what they are up to now. Honestly, I didn't care. I am just a marevelous actress. Brava to me. When the game was over - which we won, HOLLA - I went back home and helped my parents load everything into the car because we cooked the Thanksgiving dinner and had to transport everything to my grandparent's house. The food was great, the company was good and the night ended for us around 5 PM. I spent the rest of my night watching Giulianna & Bill.

Friday I had the honor and privledge of going to work all day. Even though I work at a market/restaurant, we were busy as heck. I mean, all those Italians don't want to eat turkey forever. They want their pasta, bread and antipasto, dangit! So, I spent my day slaving away and then spent my night alone, eating lots of chinese food.

Saturday was boring *insert nine hours of work here*. But, I did get to see one of my friends Felicia. We went out to dinner, roamed around Target and listened to Michael Buble's Christmas album.

Sunday my aunt's girlfriend surprised me with tickets to go see "Fiddler on the Roof". She works at a restaurant and in the city and the cast of the show went there for dinner and gave out tickets, so she grabbed a pair and gave them to me because she knows I love going to the theater. I really wanted to see the show too, so it was a win-win for me. HOLLA. But, during the day the family got together again to celebrate my grandfather's 80th birthday.
Pardon me for lacking in the "real post" area. I am working on it, I promise!
