I wonder Friday, Mar 22 2013 


It is always surprising when I find myself in a situation unlike myself. I wonder why, why you ate not within my reach. Why are you not there for me to see and hold. When will you become my instant feeling of now…

DO or DON’T? Photoshopping Your Ex Out of Pictures Thursday, Mar 21 2013 


I was recently reading my daily edition of Glamour when I came across this article regarding: Photoshopping Your Ex out of Pictures. I have to say I have contemplated this situation as I ended my previous relationship, going through old photos of holidays, birthdays, or special events. Many of which I look amazing and have fond memories except for the fact my ex is in many photos. Now, as I am trying to figure how I can save this picture of a great day (LSU TIGERS FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP 2007). I decided to block out my ex face and put in LSU TIGERS mascot Mike the Tiger. Grant it, years ago I wouldn’t have thought about photoshop my old pictures of ex’s or what not. But, given the thought I look amazing why should I trash a special moment, all for the reason I cannot stand the sight of my biggest mistake/ex. You just make it work to your benefit!
What do you think…would you photoshop your ex from a picture?

DO or DON’T? Photoshopping Your Ex Out of Pictures

Some of us might just straight up destroy all evidence of a previous relationship, but for those who want to keep their memories without having their ex paraded in front of their faces, what do you think of this solution: Keep the photos, edit out the offending ex?

The Huffington Post recently pointed out a trend of Reddit users submitting their edited photos. First, a graphic designer who had been asked to photoshop a photo for a woman who wanted her ex-daughter-in-law removed from a family photo:

Ouch. Sorry, ex-wife.

Then, there was this post by a regular non-graphic-designer guy who took it upon himself to edit his own photo of himself with his ex-wife. His version is a bit more rough around the edges but also infinitely more hilarious:

Ouch, but…yum?

Would you guys ever go to such lengths to doctor a photo? Even though the idea of replacing all my exes with giant hot dogs (yes, there’s an intentional wiener joke in there) is pretty appealing for the hilarity, I can’t see myself ever seriously altering a picture. I can see why you wouldn’t want to sit around staring at your ex or your son’s ex, but…you can’t change history, you know? Everyone is still going to remember that the ex was there no matter how many delicious burritos you put in their place.

Sex and the City Quotes Thursday, Mar 21 2013

“When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?”

A Happy Closet makes me a Happy Girl Thursday, Mar 21 2013 


Vector-girl-fashion-perfume_1440x900Well, it’s that time of the year…it’s Spring! Time for bunnies, beaches, and bikinis, also gym time. It is time to polish those toes and tan those legs. I love transforming my closet for this season. Getting rid of the sweaters and boots, making room for flirty skirts and sandals. All the colors of the rainbow in stock from every store and accessories boutique. Oh, how I missed you pretty florals and ruffles, to the eyelets and lace in my wardrobe. I will admit I’m a control freak when it comes to organizing my wardrobe and accessories. I have a closet that has sections to where I can separate my blouses, skirts, and dresses, all color coordinated. Now, this is an all day season transition. So be prepared: turn on some Sex and the City episodes, pour a mimosa, and make a day of it. Here are a couple of ideas to make this an easy transition:
•make a list of staple items you need to complete your Spring wardrobe.
•try on every item, sort out articles that need cleaning, donate, or trash.
•color coordinate your wardrobe that way it’s easier to see what you have on hand.
•separate your coordinates : blouses, pants, skirts, and dresses. Gives you a better idea on how to plan your outfit of the day.
•rule of thumb: if you haven’t worn it in the last year or it doesn’t fit, discard it. It just means more room for new pieces.
•don’t forget those shoes, boots, and sandals. Any scuffs use a shoe polish, get a credible shoe repair to repair any caps, heels, or repairs. Any damage to shoes that cannot be salvaged, donate! Always look polished from head to toe…
•Accessories include handbags, scarves, and hats. Inspect all items to keep or discard.
•jewelry should be cleaned and repair if needed, discard any pieces broken if need be.
•I am a big fan of donating all my items to a women’s shelter or good will.
Lastly, not sure to what to do with pieces of clothing and accessories…have a swap party. You heard me, invite our girlfriends over with their items to swap out, chill some wine, prepare some finger foods and dessert. Set out all of you and girlfriends goodies and swap out your items. You never know what you may not love anymore could be a girlfriend’s most beloved.
Happy Springtime…
