The Blog is Back... Alright!

Good news. The Blog is BACK. Back harder than when Backstreet was Back. Although the blog lacks a supersweet dance to bust out at the Junior High Winter Social (circa 1998), I'll venture it ages better than Nick Carter did.
After Paris dumped me I ate my feelings, couldn't fit into my clothes, and blew all my money on drugs and Krispy Kremes. Now I have to shop at Plato's Closet. Sweet jacket though right?!

I've gotten several requests over the past months to revive the blog, and I figure the new year is a good time for a "re-launch". I don't know about you, but 2010 was not a banner year for me in general. I'll sum it up in the words of a drunken ex-sorostitute I overheard on New Year's Eve:
"I'd kill a bitch to forget 2010." 

But I'm from Texas ....
And the famous CBS news anchor Dan Rather once said:
There's an old saying..  that you should marry a girl from Texas because no matter how tough things get, she's tougher.
I sure as hell don't want to get married just yet, but Danny Boy makes a good point. It's a new year and I'm starting over. All the selfish, narcissistic, assholes of the world can go screw themselves. All the sad or unfortunate events that are out of my control, I will try to learn to leave in God's hands. 2011 is going to be great. If not great, we are going to at least aim for less shitty. I'll send some good vibes out for all y'all too. 

Last night I watched the DVD of EAT, PRAY, LOVE. Not as great as the book (which if you have not READ yet, please please please do), but I enjoyed it enough. It's a great story about renewal, finding yourself, moving on from the past, and appreciating beauty in life. So I'm going to end on a particularly poignant quote from the book that I think we all should remind ourselves of on a regular basis in the new year:

So with that ..... Bring on the Blog. Here's to a new year of Reviews, Fashion, Beauty, Music, Photography, Film, Books, Travel, Food, Quotes, How-tos, and Making fun of trashy and/or slutty people.
Stay Tuned.... 

P.S. Again if you haven't Kindled (yes I made Kindle a verb) Eat, Pray, Love yet.... please do. Now:
Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

Or then there is always the vaguely humorous Male spin-off.. 
Drink, Play, F@#k: One Man's Search for Anything Across Ireland, Las Vegas, and Thailand


  1. yayyyyyy!!! sooo glad you're back :) and i def already kindled eat pray love... we watched the movie for the 2nd time last night :) i love it

  2. Welcome back!

    Glad to see you revived it... And I would say, your blog most definitely ages better than Nick Carter did.

    Man, I miss the days that golden-haired boy was drool-worthy.

  3. I loved the book as well! I couldn't put it down and read it in 3 days! You're right 2011 is a new year, filled with hope and optimism that its going to be a good year...cause ya, 2010 wasn't that great.

  4. glad you're blogging again! I'll have to "nook" it - since I'm not a kindler.
