I wasn’t prepared for the random week that I’ve had. But I’m healthy and happy and I won’t complain.

A friend of mine told me about this company she has a subscription with, called IPSY
. Ten bucks a month gets you a little makeup bag of different products and brands to try. Now, if you know me, you’ll know I’m not a very high maintenance girl. Give me a hair binder, a lip chap
(or six), some Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship
Shampoo, and I can conquer the world. But, I decided to expand my horizons and try some different products on the market. Maybe I’ll find some I like. Yesterday I got my January bag. Inside was, Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange
Body Butter (so luxuriously smooth!), bigsexyhair
spray & play volumizing hairspray (va-voom!), nailtini
nail polish in bloody mary (holy red!), Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan
Oil (makes my hair shiny like diamonds!) and a SOHO eyeliner
I’m about to broaden my horizons in the realm of cosmetics. And if I don’t like something, well… that’s what best friends are for right?
After many long months of waiting… one of my Kickstarter rewards has arrived! Jake Parker is a phenomenal artist. His goal was to design and publish a book with the help of crowd funding. Behold, the hard cover that I’m so excited to flip through. He did a great job and it’s super exiting to see a project that you’ve backed, sitting right in front of you! Check out more of his work on his website. I heard his original intent was to his stories bound in a book for his kids to read… adorable.
The crazier part of the last few days is that I had jury duty this week. For real. It was very, VERY anticlimactic. I sat in one room for 8 hours at a time – and read a seriously funny book
that I highly recommend. So wait, I got paid to read a book? Well, yes, work pays me to go to jury duty… and there is compensation from the county for my “duty”, to the tune of about $10 each day… hardly covers parking downtown.
Isn’t there a better system for this? Instead of 80 people sitting, waiting, in silence, to be called (and only about 15 did), couldn’t we be on-call? And if you need someone, then I will leave what I’m doing and go to the courthouse? It seemed like a lot of man hours gone to waste. Let’s hope I never have to do that again. And if I do get summoned, I’m crossing my fingers I get chosen for a super high-profile murder trial and then sequestered. I would love a series of free nights stay at a swanky hotel downtown and fresh grilled salmon each night. A queen sized bed all to myself with sheets of egyptian cotton? Room service? Hot showers that can last for twenty minutes? Sign me up! k thanks bye!
