How Cute Are These Boots

I love this commercial. I love when they say, “forget those girly dress” and the little blonde girl screams in the camera. SO CUTE!!

Maxwell New vs. Old

Maxwell Old School

Maxwell Old Schoolvs.Maxwell New School

Maxwell makes incredible music and is an incredibly sexy man. So when he finally announced his comeback, I don’t think anyone doubted his success. He has been very missed. But I truly can’t figure out which Maxwell I prefer. Looks-wise I am partial to the old school, neo-soul brotha who just rolled out of bed looking that fantastic.
I got his latest album last week on the way to visit my sister in upstate NY. It was a short flight, but I listened to it 3 times in a row. I love it. Now that I am a mature woman of 25, I believe I truly understand what he is talking about now. But, nothing will ever take away the pure feeling of listening to his songs slowly creep into the “love” scene in Love and Basketball. Being the ripe age of 17 when that movie came out, it was all still a fantasy to me. Love was this fabulous thing that Maxwell’s music was¬†simply put, a¬†necessary piece of the puzzle. The memories I have with Maxwell as the soundtrack are extensive.
Its a tie! I couldn’t possibly choose. I am just happy he is back.
Plus, he has totally taken advantage of the giant that is Twitter. He is doing an amazing job of marketing himself to a new generation and reconnecting with the old. @_MAXWELL_ Glad you are back.

The summer, my favorite thing is a beautiful summer sunset. There is nothing more peaceful. Watching that sunset while sitting on the beach is just the cherry on top.

MICHAEL!

Michael Jackson

To describe my current state as devastated is an understatement. Michael Jackson was the first love of my life and has never left that position in my heart. He was so much more than a performer to me. He has shaped my life in so many ways. For anyone that has anything negative to say in this time, needs to take a good look at the kind of person they are, at their own integrity.

I love you forever Michael! Thank you for giving so much of yourself for our happiness.

Cake Girls Chicago

I have been watching this show on WE network, Amazing Wedding Cakes. These amazing sisters from Chicago own a cake shop called Cake Girls. Being that they make beautiful cakes and from Chicago (my fav city) I am totally in love with them. I don’t have this obsession with getting married like some girls, but I love cake and pretty things.

Turning Passion into Profit

country living

For the last few months I have been trying to think of ways to turn my passions into a business. I wasn’t shooting for the stars, just for Etsy, something reasonable and can be done even when I return to a full-time job. Well, I am definitely a crafty girl, but I have had quite a bit of trouble finding exactly what craft I wanted to use. I enjoy paper crafts most, so cards/stationary was the first option, but I just wasn’t feeling it once I got started. So, now I have dabbled in about everything else, glass art, jewelry making…

Any ideas?

This morning on the Today Show, they had a segment on turning your passion into profit. It has a lot of great tips, I just need to figure out what that passion is and I will be on a roll. The original story came from this Country Living article. Watch the Today Show video here.
