Lots of time on my hands recently...

so I have been reading in between taking care of the duo and looking for that great job. I recently read PUSH: A Novel. Talk about hard hitting. The main character "Precious" was sexually and physically abused by both her parents starting when she was just months old. I was mortified but kept on reading. It is not a tale for the weak. I cried and cried, how can you not with the tribulations this little girl went through.

It was premiered at this years Sundance Film Festival:

I am now getting a major job complex...

I was laid off yet again. Can you believe it? well neither can I! And this could not come at a worse time. I find myself not throwing myself into this job hunting thing, like I did the first time around. I am TIRED!

I feel used by this last company. I help set everything up and then was left behind. Makes me quite pissed off.

The search goes on, and on!

On a lighter note I have officially lost a little over 30lbs. Go me. YAY! But I wish I was 30lbs lighter with a great JOB.

And lately I am feeling disconnected, withdrawn from Gary and the kids. I am trying to enjoy them, but depressions nasty little head is poking out again. Working on getting it out of my face. I want to enjoy this time I have with the kids before they start Kindergarten next month.

Eco-Conscious MelFlex!

I recently joined this shopping community (was on a waiting list) and I have a few invitations, let me know if you are interested. Any who, the items that are for sale in the community through "Events" are some pretty cool stuff. Allot of the stuff is more than 60% off retail value, and I have seen a ton of stuff that I had no idea existed.

Take for instance, Melissa Plastic Dreams Foot ware. Made from reusable substances, eco-friendly, vegan friendly and just plain of funky fresh! The factory recycles 99.9 percent of waste and water used in production. They also recycle unused inventory from previous years. They are doing their part to keep plastic out of landfills.

I love the "Peep Toe" style, which I think looks very similar to the Crocs version. hmmmm. I would definitely sport a pair of these. So if you can (Prices range from $49 - 99) support this company and look great while doing your part to save our planet.

I finally received my Zoya Matte Collection (with the exception of Loredana). I love it and boy did it dry super fast. I have had it on for 5 days now and the tips of my nails are showing wear, so true to what I was told, the wear is not as long as regular polish.

Illamasqua is divine!

So I have discovered a new blog Vampy Varnish. She reviews, what else, Nail lacquers! She has opened up a whole new world for me. Deborah Lippman, Illamasqua, and Butter London. But that comes with a PRICE ( a very high one to be exact)

I saw this on her blog: It is pure LIQUID PURPLE GOLD! OME, talk about drool. I have never seen a purple shine like it. I hate to admit that I paid $20 w/ shipping from their website, but I am sure it will be well worth it. There is another color I would love, Rampage! But it was not that serious, to shell out $40 for nail lacquer.

I am, however on the prowl of this color by Deborah Lippman:(pics courtesy of my new found blog love) which hits stores this month. Neiman Marcus anniversary colors. "Don't Tell Momma" I have no idea what my infatuation with the color green is at the momment, just look at it!
