Mid-Year Resolution Check

                                       
   

Well, 6 months in, I can say that I did manage to stick with 2 things I declared I would change for the upcoming year.  I vowed to watch the entire season of Scandal, AND to nix about 7-10 minutes off my everyday get ready routine.   Feeling empowered by this recent discovery, I began to think about the other promises I made to myself.  Being as though I only have 6 more months to get it in, it was time to evaluate my list from a realistic standpoint, as opposed to wishful thinking.

Do you ever wonder why it's so hard to keep a resolution?  Why is it so hard not to let down the one person who you will always have...You?!  The things we tell ourselves are often expendable and I just don't understand why.  I'm good for disappointing myself.  The only promise I will be making moving forward is to remember to put myself first at times.  I will no longer take the mentality that my feelings are the least important in a situation, and the priority is everyone else.  After all, no one can love me like me.  The people who surround you can only lead by example.  Take the initiative to treat you the way you deserve.  Lets not loose our minds and think this means you can start treating people any ole kind of way any neglecting your responsibilities...um, negative.  SOME of us can benefit from a little less emphasis on ourselves and become more open to others.  This is definitely NOT for you!!!  All I'm saying is take a few minutes everyday and do something for you.  Whatever happens in your day, make sure you keep this appointment as if your life depended on it.  It's amazing how much difference this one minuscule thing will make in your overall attitude and opinion of your day.  Before you know it, you will no longer need to reserve resolutions for once a year, better you will become a daily thing and you just might not have anything left to promise;-)

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on theminsjournal.com that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
