Warhol Wednesday

I have a veryyy mad kitty. Right after this picture was taken, he bit me.

12.13.2010

I am not a patient person.

It took over 2 weeks and a handful of days to get this haul, but none-the-less, I am very excited to show you all my haul. 
So there's everything wrapped. Thank goodness they wrap everything very well, because this is how the box was intact: 
I wasn't very happy about UPS and how they shipped this, but whatevs I guess. That's a whole 'nother post. 

Warhol was very excited about a new box, even though its too small for him. 
 This is my favorite so far: It smells amazing. 
This one smells okay: I think it'll smell better on. 
I think Santa's mustache melted enroute. 
The rest are wrapped because they were very crumbly. 
Oh that one isn't wrapped because I was so excited about how big this bubble bar is!!
And I just decided to show one soap bar because they look exactly the same. 
Now I am off to take a shower!!!
(I have never been this excited to take a shower.)
I think I am going to use HIWTK and the Honeymooner.

MY LUSH HAUL CAME TODAY!!!

FINALLY. More to come. For your enjoyment check out this picture:

TEEHEE.

Photoshoots on Blizzardy days

Yesterday I had a photoshoot with my sister, Cassie. This was for my Editorial class for school. We had to do a shoot based on "Freedom" and pitch it to i-D magazine. When my teacher asked me if i-D would have been a good choice, I said no, I would rather pitch it to NYLON. So that's what I hypothetically did.

Here are a couple shots from yesterdays shoot.

Sheldon, my aunt's Sheltie wanted in on it too. He is such a ham.

Santa, baby, I've been an awful good girl!

As I type, we have a blizzard in effect for the whole county/counties around me until 12PM tomorrow. I figure I should make my Christmas list. First of all, I am more of a fan of giving that receiving, but Santa is making me make a list. 

I found this gorgeous headband on ETSY. Untamed Petals has great hair accessories, which would be perfect for my (recently) short hair. 
 
I also decided I need new makeup. (Well, really I don't but I like makeup...) I need to be sparkly most of the time so when I found this on Sephora.com I was in love.

I try and travel a lot, but when I cannot sleep on planes or recently at my community accupuncture appointment, I get grumpy. I found this at fredflare.com and hope that someone puts it in my stocking this Christmas.
I am a LUSHIE and still need more LUSH products. I had to put this on my wishlist. 

I had a phone like this one when I was little, It didn't work or anything, but this one would work and go perfect on my desk.
This next wish list item is more for Warhol than me. He is an avid box sleeper, so I thought that this would be a cool present for him. 

I would ask for another Marc Jacobs bag, but I feel like I already am neglecting my other Marc Bags, so I will wait until my birthday to ask for another. 
So, what is on your wish list?

Feeling sorry for yourself? Watch this. It makes you feel better.

My friend James has cancer. Recently, he made a video of him getting his hair shaved off cause it was falling out and his head hurt. This video makes me smile and cry at the same time. He has the best attitude ready to kick cancer in the butt once again (this was the second time he's had it.) I had to post this to share with everyone.
To James, fight this bitch as hard as you can. You are amazing. Fabulous. I love you for corrupting me in College. 

So guys, anything look different?

I got a face lift, collagen in my lips and lipo for belly...haha. PSYCH. How do you like my new blog?? Miss Liz over at SRSLY LIZ, who I met searching for blogs about 10 months ago did this gorgeous layout for me. The direction I gave her was simple: I love yellow and grey and can it be vintagey?? This girl has got talent yeah? So do me a favor and go over to her blog and start following her. Because well, she is fabulous, her dog Walter is adorbs and her style on point. Guess I have to start blogging regularly now that I have this beautiful blog now huh?

I am a LUSH.

Not really, I like my occasional glass of wine (mmm Cupcake Vineyards) but that's not what I meant. I am obsessed with LUSH Cosmetics. For those of you who don't know what LUSH is soaps, bubble bars, bath bombs and lotions made from organic fruits and veggies, not tested on animals, no preservatives and basically when you walk in a store, its like a deli of soaps. 
I went on a little shopping spree on Black Friday (FREE SHIPPING!!) and this is what I bought. Everything is still on the UPS truck....hopefully being sent to me by Monday. 

First is all soaps I have heard about (or wanted to try)

Snow Cake:
Smells like marzipan. (or so I am told) It is also super moisturizing which is amazing for me, considering I live in the frozen tundra. 

Snow Globe: 


Limey and fresh. Helps with Seasonal Depression. SCORE for me. I am trying to quit tanning. (I heard its bad for you. ;)) 

Honey I Washed the Kids:
OMG. I fell in love in SF when I went to the LUSH store. It smells like toffee and honey!

Godmother:

This smells like bubblegum and is very similar to another type of soap called Rock Star.

Sea Vegetable:

Oh my word, this has seaweed and sea salt in it. I am super excited to see how this works. I have heard mixed reviews, maybe Mike will try it? I also am trying
Sandstone: 
 


These last two came in a pack...which was cheaper than buying both! 




Now onto the rest of my LUSH things: 
A LUSH shower scrub called it has coconut oil and free trade sugar in it (yummyyy)
Sugar Babe:

Now onto the massage bars (which are basically bars of lotion) amazing if you ask me!!
Once a Year:
Which is cuuuute, it has a sparkly Santa Mustache and smells like BOOZE!!

Each Peach (and Two's a Pair):
Which lifts your spirits (says the website) and has lime, mandarin and orange in it.

Soft Coeur (the honeymooner):
Which goes well with HIWTK and has a little chocolate in the middle!!
Last but not least I got two bubble bars (I don't take many baths but I heard amazing things about these products)
The Comforter: 
It is as big as your hand and smells like black currants. This will last at least six baths!!

Lastly, this is a holiday product that I wanted to try: 
Ruby Red Slippers: 
The bubbles become gorgeous ruby and sparkle! Perfect for my fashionista soul!
Now remember, I haven't received these products yet, but I just needed to share what I will be getting. I will be doing reviews on every product, so everyone is educated on this little gem I found called LUSH. 

Has anyone else become a LUSH?

La La LOVE

Yes, I know I haven't done a La La Love post in a while, but trying to get all back in the groove after San Francisco and catching up on school, I feel like I have been neglecting everyone lately. So here is a La La post for you:

Marc Jacobs silly bandz. Is it bad that I want them? You can get them here.  Because I am definitely going to contemplate getting them.
This is the cutest little (big) rabbit with a mustache everrrr.
   


I wanted a bulldoggie there for a while, but I decided to wait until we have a bigger place. But I could settle with this cute bank from Urban Outfitters.



I have become a Lush addict lately. I love everything in the store and decided my next apartment will have an amazing bath. The product listed is Honey I Washed The Kids... it smells devine.
I came across this cupcakery located in California. I have no idea how to feel about this. You be the judge.
I found this DIY cupcake game for kiddies too, pretty amazing.


We sadly have no room for a tree this year, so I told my FI that I wanted to get this: 
a Charlie Brown Tree! You can find them at Menards and Fred Flare. I still haven't convinced Mike.

Pop Quiz. What city was Princess Diaries set in?



Who said San Francisco? You are right. That's also where I will be jet-setting off to next Wednesday. For all who didn't know...I used to live in the beautiful city by the Bay. I lived there for a semester. San Francisco is beautiful (for those who have never been) and there is always something to do. Hopefully we will be doing a lot when we visit. So far on the list is:


Musée Mécanique 
Sudachi (my fav sushi place!!) 
Ferry Building
Kara's Cupcakes 
Pier 39 with the Sea Lions
Alcatraz  
Haight-Ashbury!!


AND hopefully if the weather permits: 
Baker Beach






I cannot wait to get there. This city has my heart.

Personal post: My auntie


I got phone call from my mom today saying my aunt was in the hospital again. This is a thing that happens about five times a year...maybe even more. You see, my aunt has been sick all her life. She has had diabetes (she got a pancreas transplant), she has had two kidney transplants (my grandpa gave her one and it failed, then her husband gave her one...its stayed good) because of these transplants, she has to take anti-rejection drugs. This makes her immune system very weak. Because of her diabetes, she had part of her foot amputated (bad circulation). A couple of years ago she had knee surgery (she wanted to dance for her 50th birthday) and the knee surgery didn't go very well. She ended up with a staph infection and almost died.

So tonight I was told by my mom that she may have had a stroke yesterday. They were going to do more tests tomorrow.
My auntie has been there through everything. She bought me my little macbook when I found out I was accepted to AAU, she drove me to California for school and would send me cute little care packages. I taught her how to text, I taught her how to skype. She was the one who came and got my apartment stuff from California.... she got me my little orange car... She is so amazing to me.
We drink wine on weekends and watch Laverne and Shirley. So I hope she's okay. Can everyone do me a favor and pray? She's really special to me.

La La LOVE

This video was on Srsly Liz link bytes a couple of weeks ago, I fell in love. 

Also, I found out that Nordstrom's Rack is now online!! Which is AMAZING. & I found this:

I wonder if the dog comes with this collar? 

One of my new Marcs. I refer to him as a person. I really have a problem.
Can I have this closet? Pleaaaase? I had a closet like this when I lived in the city.  

I want to start recieving mail. Who wants to be my penpal? I hate just getting junk mail and bills.
