I Can Tell...

My Goobie loves me when I come home from work and pick her up at grandma's. It's the cutest thing, she hears me opening the door and runs towards the door to greet me. Once I'm inside, she jumps up and down for me to pick her up, and once I do, she wraps her little arms around me, smiles, gives me a kiss, and puts her head on my shoulder..she's the sweetest thing ever, and makes anything that went wrong during the day all better ;)

Happy Autumnal Equinox!

Yes, I know, sadly the time has come to bid Summer good was a good Summer overall, although where I am, it's almost 100 degrees! but perhaps where you are, autumn is starting to make its way through, and if it is, I hope you're enjoying the day and welcoming Ms. Autumn! !Happy Autumnal Equinox All!

Just Another Manic Monday ;)

Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
My I don't have to runday
It's just another manic Monday

Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine
And if I had an air-o-plane
I still couldn't make it on time
'Cause it takes me so long
Just to figure out what I'm gonna wear
Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there

All of the nights
Why did my lover have to pick last night
To get down
Doesn't it matter
That I have to feed the both of us
Employment's down
He tells me in his bedroom voice
C'mon honey, let's go make some noise
Time it goes so fast
When you're having fun

A Dollar Can Still Go A Long Way...

And it can buy you make-up! and lotts of it! For a buck a piece, you can purchase the items I've posted below and many other make-up goodies at E.l.f (Eyes, Lips, Face)

All Over Color Stick all in one stick; for eyes, lips, and face for that glowy look
Duo Eyeshadows
Liquid Eyeliner
Look at these cool vintagy feel Lip Gloss Tins!

While I haven't tried any of these products personally yet ( I say 'yet' because I will definitely purchase some items!) I have heard good things about this line from friends, and ex-colleagues from the make-up industry.

They also carry amongst others, which are not $1.00 but the prices are still reasonable!

Happy Window Shopping!

Beary Fab Retro Art

While online window shopping for retro art, I bumped into the fab retro work of Kerry Beary. Take a peek!

Patrick Swayze

From the moment I laid eyes on Mr. Darrel Curtis in The Outsiders, I fell in love with Mr. Swayze, there was just something about him, I mean other than the obvious; Patrick Swayze=Hotness :) he just seemed like a genuinely noble man. I like the fact that he always seemed to stay out of the typical limelight Hollywood stars always seem to fall under. I was sad to hear of his passing a few days ago, but I was glad to hear that he had a peaceful death alongside those who loved him dearly. Rest in Peace Patrick...

Tears in Heaven...

It's been a sad past week. My best friend's mother left us last Thursday. She fought endless battles with her illness, but in the end, the illness won. I did not spend a lot of time with her, but what I did know, was that Gina was brave and strong, and whenever the sickness tried to get the best of her, she fought!

She was a loving mother who brought up two lovely women, one being like my little sister whom I love so very much. She also leaves behind 3 lovely grandchildren whom I'm sure she will watch over, and although they are all still very small to understand the loss of their grandmother, I am sure that both mothers will make sure to share great memories of their grandmother who loved them so much!

Today, the family bids their final farewell to Gina. I feel awful for not being able to be at the funeral and not being there for my friend, but my thoughts and prayers are with them all. I pray that they find comfort and peace and that as the days, weeks, and years go by, that they continue to celebrate her life and remember her for the beautiful person she was...

May you have eternal rest Gina Attalla...

La môme Piaf !

One of my very favorite Edith Piaf's Songs...

The falling leaves
Drift by the window
The autumn leaves
All red and gold
I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold.

Since you went away
The days grow long...
And soon I'll hear
Old winter songs
But I miss you most of all
My darling, when autumn leaves start to fall...

C'est un chanson
Qui nous ressemble
Toi qui m'aimais
Et je t'aimais
Nous vivions tous les deux ensemble
Tou qui m'aimais
Moi qui t'aimais

Mais la vie sépare
Ceux qui s'aiment
Tout doucement
Sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable
Les pas des amants désunis.

Since you went away
The days grow long...
And soon I'll hear
Old winter songs
But I miss you most of all
My darling, when autumn leaves start to fall...
