Post Valentines Glee

Yes siree, I do have glee! I am gleeful, I am cheerful, and I am busy transferring files and data from my old lappy top to my new lappy top! The magnificent MacBook Air!

Baaaa. what? You say! Excuse you. Yes, my lovely husband surprised me with a MacBook Air for Valentines/Anniversary! Yes, yesterday marked our 16 year anniversary of the day we met, and fell for each head-over-heals, and immediately started dating. It's a very important day... and it just so happened to fall on Valentines day.

The lead up to this story is that I've been going on and on about my old MacBook and how it's loosing it's gumption. It's slow, it pokes, it crashes.. it's tired. It needs to retire. Well, the kids need a computer, so I can strip it and make it enjoyable for them. So I've been on about this new MacBook Air that came out, and apparently he's been listening!

So last night as we were cooking (together), I said, "I'm so excited, I got this …

Daryl K Makes Us Ladies Wish Fall 2011 Were Here Already!

Saturday night the brooklyn ladies made the short journey into the city and the world of fashion with a visit to Daryl Kerrigan's fashion show for her line: Daryl K.  And boy did we have a spectacular night.  I'll share the main event first, and follow the earlier part of the evening in my follow up post. Even the critics have wait patiently like the rest of us
The fall leaves and bramble strewn about the runway echoed the patterns of bark, branches and leaves that appeared on ponchos and jackets.   A bit camouflage and a bit earthy, but with the punk leather leggings it added a nice edge.  Something you could actually wear into real life. My life.  My favorites were a camel poncho, and the fun large collared jackets. Both Daniela and I oohed and awed over the drop crotch leather leggings. But the camel colored leggings, top and matching shoes with the leather green jacket cut off-kilter and askew was divine.

better to show you with professional shots from the night aka…

Fashion Week Has Me Drooling in Blog Envy!!!

Here I am on day TEN of my TWENTY-ONE day cleanse, and I can tell you I do have energy, finally.   But I still get distracted and find myself unable to force myself to do just one thing.   It's just so hard to come home, sit down and write for those THREE available hours when you see that the kitchen needs to be cleaned from the morning's explosion, the dirty laundry on the floor needs to get shoved in the washer, the endless boots and shoes need to be put away,  emails need to be answered, babysitters need to be reached, and days need to be planned...   Oh what was it I really wanted to do?  Write.

I could go back and look at what I wrote on this blog earlier, but I'm too busy to browse. So hopefully it's okay if I repeat myself. But not only am I doing the cleanse, I'm also enrolled in a online writing class.   I do okay, on and off, but this week I have not managed the assignments.

I have so many things on my plate!  I'm in the midst of putting together th…

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

This is my Tribute to Karen O. Amazingly talented vocal chords, and a great stage presence. Of course, I love her sense of style. She's hot too!

She looks like a very young Siouxsie Sioux in this video. But her style, and her music is original.

This video, shows her in a very punk, japaneese look. Love the blue, black and studs.

Ok, so let's talk hair! I woke up one morning and my hair had grown out into a Karen O/Dorothy Hamill look! I didn't even have to do anything! That night, just to encourage it, I curled my hair under, and WOW. What rave reviews! I love it. I'm gonna nurture this for a bit. But I do like the cut from the video above.

okay, so maybe it is a bit more Dorothy Hamill.  But it is not Justin Bieber.
