Love This Song…

29 Sep

I’m obsessed with this song.  I can’t stop listening to it.  And I don’t even like Katy Perry’s music.  Apparently I like this though.  The guy in the video is a smokeshow.  So hot.  Except for the dancing at the end.  Not so hot.  A little awkward.  But the boxing scene makes up for it.

Enjoy.

Positive Thoughts

27 Sep

On September 2, 2009 I joined Twitter.  Even though I had created an account and a username, I didn’t use it.  I didn’t get it, I didn’t understand how to use it so I never logged on.  Not to mention, one of the things I hated most about Facebook was the status updates.  And basically, that’s what Twitter is.

After a few months, I decided to log on and give it a shot again.  Mostly because I have a huge addiction to celebrity gossip (soooo terrible, I KNOW).  My guilty pleasure is reading people.com, perezhilton.com, tmz.com and many more.  And Twitter provides me with the updates straight from the mouths of the celebrities themselves.

Although I LOVE my celebrity gossip, my ultimate favorite person to follow is Reverend Run or on Twitter @RevRunWisdom.  Most people will know him as Joseph Simmons (brother of Russell Simmons) or DJ Run, as one of the founding members of the hip-hop group Run DMC.

Everyday, and multiple times a day, he tweets positivity to the Twitterverse.  I love logging on and checking my Twitter to see the many quotes he tweets about staying positive, being confident, achieving your goals, being happy, loving your haters, and God.  It’s a nice reminder to always look on the bright side when on a daily basis, I read so many tweets that seem like constant complaints or when I’m having a bad day or there is a negative situation going on in my life.

In the last few weeks, he posted this:

This really stuck with me.  I love it.

Ooh La La…Gossip Girl in Paris

26 Sep

OK, so I have a small obsession with Gossip Girl.  My guilty pleasure, since I don’t really watch that much TV.  I mainly watch it to look at all of the sweet clothes they wear and because it’s in New York, which I also have a slight obsession for.  The 4th season just started and has done a fine job of keeping up with its fashion reputation.  These rich little bitches are off galavanting in Paris and have most definitely kicked up the wardrobe a few notches into high fashion.  All of the outfits have been mouth watering, but so far this outfit worn by Blake Lively has been my absolute favorite.  My mouth dropped when I saw it.  It’s totally my style.  The bright blue cropped pants, paired with the metallic Emilio Pucci blazer is a pretty sweet combination.  I’d rock this for sure…

Cleaning Out My Closet

24 Sep

This past week I started to “clean out my closet”.  Not in the dark, deep, emotional way as we hear in Eminem’s song…yikes!! Literally though…I have soooooo many clothes that I don’t wear and my closet rail is slowly starting to bend in the middle.  The weight of my clothes is going to cause it to snap soon if I don’t do something about it.  Not to mention, I can barely close some of my dresser drawers because they are so packed with clothes.  So this week I’ve dedicated my evenings to getting rid of everything that I don’t wear.

Although this is a time to be out with the old, it’s really hard to part with some items.  Even though I haven’t worn it in years, at one point I really loved some of these clothes.  There are items of clothing that have memories attached to them.  I can just look at a dress and remember the exact moment I wore it and how it made me feel.  I keep saying to myself that maybe one day I will wear them again.  But let’s be honest, if I haven’t worn something in over a year, it ain’t gonna happen.

There’s also the clothes that I can no longer fit into.  I still love them so much but I’ve gained some weight over the years and these clothes are no longer appropriate for my body.  Unless I want to find my picture on one of those “People of Walmart” emails, I should probably get rid of them.  Because let’s face it, I’ve been trying to get back to my old size for 2 years now.  It ain’t gonna happen and if it does, it ain’t gonna happen anytime soon.

Then I have the “WTF was I thinking when I bought this” moments.  Seriously!?!?!  I like to pride myself on purchasing pieces that are one of a kind.  That are unique and that stand out.  But some of these pieces are hideous and I’m not sure what made me buy them in the first place.  For example I bought this gold and black shirt that is off the shoulder and really baggy.  When worn on me I look like a disco garbage bag from 1974.  It’s so unflattering and it’s just awful!!!  Obviously it was an impulse buy.

Although it’s been hard to part with some of my wardrobe, it’s time to let go.  It’s time to move on and something so simple like cleaning out your closet has given me a sense of a new beginning.  Plus, I will be donating my clothes to the women’s shelter where my sister in law works.  I’ve been told that I should take them to a consignment store and make some money off of them but it just doesn’t seem right to me.  It’s a much better feeling to know that the clothes that were just sitting in my closet for the last few years untouched, will go to someone less fortunate and someone who needs them more than I do.  And that feeling alone makes it all worth it.

Third Times A Charm

24 Sep

Aloha!!  Welcome to my new blog.  The No Name Blog.  For obvious reasons it’s been named The No Name Blog because (well it’s pretty self-explanatory) it has no name.  I couldn’t think of anything quirky and cute and clever, so for now it just has no name.  Maybe over time something will come to me and I will rename it, but for now it shall remain nameless.  I am open to suggestions as well.

This is actually the third blog that I’ve created.  I’ve deleted my previous two so hopefully, third times a charm and this one sticks around for longer than the others.  The other two were deleted for good reason though. 

The first one I created was a makeup blog dedicated to all things makeup.  Over the past few years, I had gone to makeup school and became a makeup artist and I was trying to pursue that as a career.  In the last little while, things have changed for me and I realized that’s not what my passion is anymore.  Although I love makeup and I do love doing makeup, it’s not really where my heart is.  I kept trying to pursue it but for some reason just kept holding back.  I think deep down inside, I knew it’s not what I really wanted to do.  I like that I have it as a little side job and I do some freelance work here and there but that’s about the extent that I want to take it.  I never updated my blog and I was finding it exhausting trying to find new ideas for posts.  So in the end, it only made sense to delete it.

The second blog I started was a bit negative.  Let’s just say I’ve had a few failed relationships (if you even want to call them that) and other encounters/situations happen to me, that made me lose all faith in relationships. I was extremely bitter towards men and basically love in general.  I decided that wasn’t very healthy for me.  I didn’t want to dwell on the past and I wanted to get rid of the negativity. I didn’t want to have a blog that gave me the opportunity to read back on all of the shittiness I went through.  I wanted to move forward with my life.  And so that was the end of that blog.

This blog will be random and posts will consist of whatever I feel like that day.  I will post about anything and everything about my life and about life in general.  Much easier for me to maintain since it’s not peticular to a certain subject.  I love blogs and I love blogging and I wanted to continue with something that was more suited to me so here goes….
