Cupid, Can You Hand me The Merlot? Or Leave. Either Way.

that day is around the corner. I’m less than pleased, every year it rolls around, I re-decide that I’m the grouchy singleton. I’d like to think this year will be different though. I’m really happy where I am in my life, and with my friends. This year we’re going to a nice restaurant in Lansing called Troppo. Their food is amazing and I’ve heard their wine is even better. If I don’t have a looming exam I’ve already decided I’m dragging my butt with whoever wants to come with me to see the new movie “This Means War” with Reese Witherspoon, Chelsea Handler, Chris Pine, and Tom Hardy (If you don’t remember, he was in Inception).

Then, we shall come home and I’m going to take a relaxing bath with a bath bomb, from Level Naturals, my new favorite brand for bath bombs and soaps, I should point out. And read a book. Always with a book in hand.

Level Naturals “Forest” Bath Bomb 6-Pack – $15

 

If I could, I’d be shopping too. For these lovely items I’ve been crushing on (get it, V-day joke?)

Eagle Talon Necklace in White Bronze – $50 from mdr74 (Moon Raven Designs)

Three Tone Pleated Skirt – $30 from Mikkat Market

Midler Platform Pumps from Jeffery Campbell – $165 at ShopNastyGal

 

No matter what you do, I hope your V-day is great, whether it be bonding with friends and a good book, or your man.

Failed Spring Rolls and Shopping Lockdown Gone Awry

Dear Readers,

I think I’m slowly dying for inability to go shopping. Really, seriously, I think it’s happening. On a side note, I don’t think my attempt at making fried spring rolls the other night helped me. They looked good, and tasted like mush. I am forever buying my spring rolls from now on 😦

I know I’m on shopping lockdown until spring break (3 weeks, WOO), but I may or may not have cheated this weekend when I went to Target to buy Valentine’s Day cards for my mom, dad and hair stylist…. I saw a hat. The most magical hat in the world, and I don’t do hats. I just don’t. I think I do now… It was only $15? Does that make it any better?

I’m trying to be responsible I swear, but I think I’m losing my mind a little bit. Once again, I blame the sad, crunchy on the outside, and soggy on the inside spring rolls. Really, this weekend/week has been quite full of fails and good things. I got my hair cut on Friday, see Ms. Witherspoon below. And then went to Ann Arbor to see a friend (he had the chance to be more than a friend)…. It was not so good. Nice guy, but he wouldn’t know how to make a move if it hit him over the head. and he’s a model/actor!!! You’d think he had an ego of some size to work with. No. And I just wasn’t that interested, he seemed to be lacking something… Oh, yes, a personality.

 

Sadly, my hair isn’t as naturally wavy, and my face is rounder and I can’t help but worry it makes my face look fat. But my roommate said it’s “edgy” (which is not a word in her vocabulary. She’s quite the little prepster you see, so I take it as quite a compliment).

More to come soon, I promise 🙂

Proud to Be A Woman… Right?

So, I was just over at a friend’s place taking a study break. He’s really quite attractive, and I had this realization that, Yes, I am attracted to him (I already knew that though), but I also get the biggest kick out of even just knowing I can seduce a guy. Don’t even need to actually go through with anything, but the knowledge that I hold that power in my hands is enough to put a little extra swing in my step.

So my question to the interwebs is, obviously while we women like to have power in some form, why is it that holding that particular power is so appealing? Because we know it’s the threshold to getting what we want (potentially)? Or is it less then that, just a more primal need to control who you’re with and knowing you can get who you want?

This guy friend and I are weirdly close, we have this relationship that isn’t anything like one I’ve had with a guy before. We are just friends but we’ve got this really open dialogue and everything else in between. In a healthy way, not a dirty one – jeez people, minds out of the gutter. But we also both know we’d never date each other. And yet, know when I walk into a room he’s looking at me. Such a surge of power. *cue my egomaniacal laugh* I should explain that I have a bit of self-esteem issues, so is this my way of re-compensating what I feel like I’m lacking?

Well, either way. He’s attractive and confusing but he’s a good guy, so I’m proud to say he’s my friend, no matter how confusing things may get with us.
