New Glasses

 I'm trying out a new style
I am not yet sure how I feel about it
The next few days will be a great test of whether or not they work

Love Links

Oh so many links...

Why you should not buy Victoria Secret Bras - not that I can anyways but a very interesting read. 

25 Ways to Make Your Cubicle Suck Less - I would totally do this. But that leads me to this I don't want children! Am I am Freak!

Jennifer Law on Vanity Fair - I am so buying this...

The post is interesting, but the part that got me was Nobody Cares that You Don't Want Kids. She has some interesting views.

Tweet A Coffee - does this work? Who pays for it??

And lastly, while I personally don't indulge, this article really made me rethink my stance on the subject. Spanking Is Great for Sex. Which is why it’s grotesque for parenting.

Bringing Body Love Into Dancing - a great article

What These Powerful Women Would Have Told Their 22-Year-Old Selves - I love the women they've chosen. I need to be aware of more women role models

Beauty Candy

Be Matte Lipstick by City ColorNeutral$5.00
Acacia Protein BB Cream Beauty Balm for Hair by Ecru New York$12.00
Hand Cream by Figs & RougeNeutral$3.95
Mineralized Baked Shadow Powder by Jesse's GirlNeutral$3.99
Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths by Skyn Iceland$15.00
This months Ipsy bag feels like drugstore items. But I seem to like them. The City lipstick while a little orange seems to suit. I haven't tried the BB Hair Cream (seems like a weird concept... BB Cream) and I wanted to finish my current cleansing cloths before opening a new pack (but it came at a good time I'm almost out)

In a Church

Last Weeks Wishes
Hit up the Gym - I just couldn't make it out of bed. But I figured sleep was important. So I proritized that. And it helped
Get healthy - I think that's what this was suppose to say. I've been getting better, until I bought popcorn
Get a Massage - OMG I got a 90 minute hot stone massage that was wonderful.
Enjoy Tuesday Night (another Wordfest event) - ummmm I am not sure I enjoyed it. But it's done
Relax this weekend, do nothing but visit with my Sister-in-law, her husband and adorable baby and maybe read a little bit - I did this but I also played allot of borderlands and it was fabulous!
This is Mushroom Toasts. We went for dinner while the event was happening and couldn't figure out what 'toasts' was. Turns out it means mini toast with yummy stuff on top.  It was delicious
This Weeks Wishes
Return Items to Sephora
Return Items to The Shoe Warehouse
Mail a friend his book - I haven't seen him in forever and it's special editions copy
Go to bed at a decent hour
Go to the gym, doesn't matter what time
Play Borderlands

Pictures are from my very last Wordfest event. Naomi Klein at Knoxx Church. It's a beautiful Church. Thankfully I didn't get smotted (smitten, hit by lighting, hopefully you get the idea) when walking in ;) It's the first time I've been in a church since my sisters wedding and nobody preached to me (YEA!!!) however I did steal. Who would have thought I would have to resort to stealing water for my volunteers because the church associates weren't willing to share. (it was a little frustrating as they bought flats (32 bottles) from costco (costs maybe 8 bucks) and were selling the water for 2 bucks a piece, they were making a killing, four bottles of water wasn't gonna hurt them at all)

Oh, well! It's a new week and things are looking up! HAPPY MONDAY!!

For the past five years I have been thinking and debating on one consistent thing and finally one day I just woke up and decided I needed it done. 

Left side was my original inspiration. However when cut down to the size I wanted it just didn't look the way I wanted it to. Left side is what my wrist looked like after getting it done. I am very thankful I was driving for two hours afterwards because otherwise I would have pestered it none stop. Driving made me concentrate on something else. 
The concentration wasn't because it was hurting or anything. It hurt minimally and didn't bleed and took 10 minutes. I went to the Arthouse Tattoo Shop and say Kristen. While she wasn't the friendliest person she was super efficient and didn't make me nervous. If I had been spooked I think I would have flown out of there so quickly. But she was really nice. I think I surprised her when I said it was my first one because I went in there and just said I want this, she asked when and I said now.
Now I suppose I should move on to the reason for the wording. 

I have always struggled with personal believe in myself. I don't have many role models of woman who are assertive, respected and driven. I wanted the tattoo as I reminder to myself to believe in who I am and to not trust in others belief in me. 
It is not religious
It is not a message to anyone but myself. 

And it is exactly what I needed
