cupcake flower bouquets

these bouquets are just as pretty as real flowers, but they're edible too!



i found this picture demo of how to assemble a cupcake flower bouquet :

the bottom of the cupcake is poked through a toothpick and then secured to the foam ball.

my nice laptop bag

i just bought this laptop bag by STM. i'm happy with it so far. i was just getting sick of those big, bulky, black laptop bags.

it has a compartment for the battery and an area for folders. perfect for a student.

good thing i decided against this one, huh?

jeans, jeans, jeans!

i'm not too excited for the new baggy-distressed-rolled-up jean trend:


i like a more polished look. i think a flattering skinny jean can look very chic. and you can never go wrong with some boot cut jeans.

i actually look forward to colder temps when i am able to tuck my jeans into my knee-high boots.

i just love this look.

jessica simpson shoes

sometimes i feel like the shoes from the jessica simpson line look like hooker shoes.

exhibit A:

white patent heels with gold cork!

Exhibit B:

the boots would look perfect over some fishnets and paired with a miniskirt!

gone baby gone

i recently rented the movie GoneBabyGone. it was directed by ben affleck and based on a book. casey affleck, morgan freeman, and ed harris are among the main characters. i thought the movie was well acted. but just as warning, it is a bit graphic and has lots of swearing. i mean, they really love dropping the f-bomb in this movie...i'm talking every other word. the movie makes you think though! after it ends, you find yourself wondering what you would do in the situation. what decision you would make...and just for the record, i agree with the ultimate decision that was made.
i'm tellin' ya...the ending makes you think.

i've had enough of tyra banks

tyra just really annoys me. everything about her. how she wants to be the young oprah, her annoying voice, and the way she "softens" her voice when she is about to deliver the bad news on america's next top model. oh, and lets not forget how her eyes dart back and forth a million times when she is talking to someone. just shoot me.

she totally walks around like her sh*t doesn't stink, and frankly, i can't take it anymore.

in my opinion her best piece of "work" was the book she wrote back in the 90's:
since then, she just gets more and more annoying. please stop. please go away.

lets take a little quiz

what do these words have in common?:
  • arguement
  • twelth
  • judgement
  • truely
  • occured

ready for the answer?...they are all examples of common spelling mistakes*.

ken smith of Bucks New University believes these spelling mistakes should be accepted as "variant spellings." he proposes that these words be included in the english language and no longer be viewed as wrong. supposedly, the misspelling of the word "judgment" as "judgement" has already been widely accepted as a variant spelling.

this sounds like a lazy person's excuse as to why they can't spell. sooner or later, if this trend keeps up, words like plz and thanx will also be accepted as variant spellings.

actually, i can think of a lot of things that could become the variant of its original.

the full article can be found here.

*correct spellings: argument, twelth, judgment, truly, occurred.

wall decal for girls room

this is such a cute idea for a girls room! a pink room and barbies...what else does a little girl need?unfortunately, i don't remember where i found this pic.

my weekend went a little something like this...

weekend round-up:
  • i saw the movie p.s. i love you and i cried every 15-20 minutes. like clockwork. i kid you not. get the dvd and a box of tissues and allow the movie to melt your heart away!
  • my best friend from high school got engaged this weekend and i am SOOOO incredibly happy for her. she is one of those genuinely kind people that loves can't help but love her back.
  • my ex-boyfriend also got engaged this weekend. it tugged at my heart just a little...i'm not gonna lie. oops.
  • i totally treated myself to a nice (and successful) day of shopping on sunday. got some nice pieces for this autumn (can you believe fall clothes are out already?!).
  • i am finally jogging and it feels great! it has been my goal to do so for the longest time, so it feels fantastic. it's almost a bit addictive. each time i jog i want to beat my previous time or distance. i think the key to becoming a jogger is learning how to breathe and pacing yourself.
  • i made an entire pan of brownies and ate the entire thing myself this, actually i lied...i gave two pieces away.
  • it's really difficult to get through the weeks between wax sessions...unwanted hair just sucks. i never thought i would become one of those people that would routinely get my legs waxed. it's so high-maintenance. i can hardly believe my first wax session was only a little while ago!
