My apologies in advance. I have this stupid digital camera at my shop so I figured “what the heck, I’ll give you all some more of my face.” Then I filmed myself with something sticking me in the eye.
Here’s the basic script for those who can’t watch videos:
-Something sticks me in the eye (probably my own bangs)
-Long shot of my collarbone as I fumble with the off switch
Just call me Maya Deren already and give me an Oscar. Side note, did Maya Deren ever get an Oscar? Also, I’m selling two of the bracelets on Chairish.com. The rhinestone bangle here and the turquoise and pink pearl one here
Our tap water used to be great. Now it tastes like swimming pool.
Today’s bangles: rhinestones bangle trio, hermès blue les ponts, balcons de guadalquivir, my mom’s Route de Corse ID bracelet, cameo cuff I listed for sale on Chairish.com
Thanks to Gawker.com I’ve looked at two sets of boobs today; Miley Cyrus and some German lady with crazy big bosoms. I don’t know about you other ladies out there who don’t often see boobs but for your own, but I’m always struck by how weird looking boobs are. Granted Miley Cyrus and this German lady are polar sides of the spectrum but both their boobs look so strange. And that Kim Kardashian photo shoot from last year? Her boobs looked weird too. I guess the entire point of my post today is that boobs are weird. How’s that for a thesis statement?
Have you seen any weird boobs today?
Today’s bangles: tortoise shell Goodwill find, Hermès Calèche, Swarovski Goodwill find, red Indian style Goodwill find, and all my lucky little figas charm bracelet.
Apparently I thought it’d be a good idea to try this today.
Now, if you’ll excuse me so I can go and hide my face.
This time of year whenever something goes missing I assume my honey took it for gift giving reasons. Like he needs to know the size of my shoe, or brand of makeup, or to engrave something for me. I believe this despite the fact that a. he has never done this before and b. the item missing may be a hairbrush. What could he possibly use my hairbrush for in gift giving terms? Hairbrush upgrade? I don’t think so. So the brutal truth is, I’ve lost my hairbrush. Which explains my hair today.
Various emotional states call for special grooming rituals. If I’m extremely tired I paint on ridiculous levels of makeup. If feeling insecure? I wear A LOT of jewelry. Granted, I tend to wear a lot of jewelry for other reasons too, so you’ll never know if I’m feeling insecure or in a magpie mood.
(Ack! My skin! *adds a face veil*)
“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” Clearly I do not abide my Coco Chanel’s policy. I suspect I have the entire female population of Texas on my side for this one.
Today’s jewelry: Left hand: two Indian rhinestone bangles from my best friend, red Clic Clac a Pois, Tiffany’s braid from my dad, Goodwill rhinestone bow.
Right hand: Jawbone UP, my dad’s Baume & Mercier watch
Necklaces: Tiffany’s candy cane charm, I’m Your Present bow tie
Earrings: red gifts I’ve had since about 4th grade
Anybody seen my hairbrush?
#10 VERY GIFTED : GIFT IDEAS
Gift ideas for the TV addict:
*the Mindy Show
First off, this is insane. The Mindy Project is a passable show in my book, but in the realm of merch based on TV shows? The Mindy Project hits it out of the ballpark. THERE’S CRAZY AMOUNTS of “as seen on the Mindy Project” items available for sale on Fox.com. (Side note: does anybody else get a bad taste in their mouth reading fox.com??) We got our booze, our bathroom accessories, clothing, watches, jewelry. EVERY DAMN THING is for sale. That’s some smart freaking cross promotional marketing. Bravo, the Mindy Project. Bravo. This and hiring Adam Pally after Happy Endings was canceled are your two smartest moves ever. So.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah the Mindy Project fans, here is the best selling jewelry from the Mindy Project. So cute, right?
Like what??? Are you kidding me, the Mindy Project? Super cute Wishbone necklace.
Tamra’s Baby G, ever notice how she color coordinates her Baby G’s with her outfits?
Hey, the Mindy Project shop.com, you hiring a merchandiser??? Contact me. Mama wants that job.
Okay, I’m shaking it off. I swear I was going to offer other gift ideas but the Mindy Project is a GOLDMINE of cute gift options for the ladies in your life. Cereally. Here’s the Mindy Project link
OHMG Danny’s readers, are you kidding me??
The daily disclaimer: I would be remiss if I didn’t offer the link to my online store… I write these posts for my love of jewelry and gift giving, there’s no sponsors here but ME for MYSELF 😀
From left to right: Tiffany’s bangle I’ve had since 1993, Elsa Peretti X, Hermes silver gates, and two super sparkly bangles my best friend brought back from India for me.
