Vinnie Owns It In The ‘Mechanic’ :D

One of my tweeting followers recommended this song to me and I quite like it. Vinnie Dewayne reminds me of a cross between Jay-Z and Lupe Fiasco. If you want a fresh blast of up and coming talent listen to this link! 🙂

Starbucks: The Cure For A Bad Day?

kindle.amazon.com

“This required Starbucks. And this wasn’t just a latte morning either. Oh no, this was a “Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccino with extra whipped cream” kind of morning.”
We all have these kind of days. The days where nothing goes right. The best two ways to fix the day? The more expensive option: A spa appointment. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to face anything 😀  The less costly option is option two: Comfort food or drinks. I never had a frappuccino and never craved one. …until I read this book!  Frappuccinos can put a chocolatey blissful smile on any grumpy face 😀 I wish Canada had the caramel brownie option but the Java chip also is quite yummy 😀  7 times out of ten i’ll pick chocolate over any other variation. For those other three times i’m partial to a strawberries and creme Frappuccino.  YUM.  The only way Starbucks could make me any happier is to combine chocolate, caramel, and whip cream 😀  I should go and try Starbucks’  any way you want it frap! I would get them to add a splash of caramel (note:  by splash I mean dollops of caramel 😀 )

Words to Live by :D

Being afraid to live the life you want will result in a life of mediocrity. Never live in fear! Go ahead and work hard for what you want. At the end of the day you’ll be 1000% times happier than if you settled for mediocrity.  Here are two inspirational quotes that I hope encourage all my loyal viewers to live big! 😀

Some Days You Just Need a Little Bit of Sunshine!

Today feels like a Kate Earl kinda day! I discovered her because of a free Itunes sampler pack. Now, I like to listen to her whenever I want to add a smile to my face. I’m attaching two links  of Kate Earl songs  that I particularly love. Do yourself a favour and listen to these songs! Maybe you’ll develop the same appreciation for her music 😀

Dwight Howard and Lebron James Hold Their Own Dunk Contest…

… for a coveted Big Mac!

If you don’t watch Basketball then this won’t be as funny to you. I’m not a Lebron James fan but I ♥ Dwight Howard (Superman). It is a remake of a 1993 commercial featuring two iconic ball players Michael Jordan and Larry Bird 😀

I never saw the original commercial before I googled the 2011 edition. The original is cute and denotes the 90’s fashion. I prefer the 2011 version because it pulls on the best parts of the 90’s version with a more in your face approach. Dwight Howard’s glass shattering dunk is sexy.

Take Off Your Rose Colored Glasses and Appreciate Life For What It Is!

I never could fathom how people got themselves into tricky romantic situations  as a young girl. Maybe, I still had that  mixture of innocence, idealism and a dollop of hope or maybe  I just chose to view the world through rose colored glasses (coincidentally that is also a Kelly Rowland song.) Imagine we all have a pair of those glasses at a young age. I think that as we grow those glasses break and we see the world and the people in it for as they are, NOT as we dreamed. We become disenchanted with those idealized memories and notions.  I don’t see this to be a bad event.  As adults, we may see the world in a different way from our childhood but it isn’t bad.  I’m happier knowing that life is complex. As a kid, you can categorize as right and wrong very easily but as you age your choices become complicated. Truth is, I think those choices were always complicated but youthful minds couldn’t comprehend the magnitude.  I feel better knowing that I understand the complexness of my choices. I like knowing that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  If life were as simple as it appeared in our romanticized childhood years then life would be terribly boring. Beautiful but boring.

Everything looks beautiful through those rose colored glasses. I also believe that once we truly see things for as they are, we can see their true beauty and to me thats worth it 🙂

As for the point I made at the beginning,  I couldn’t understand why my father left us. Now, I don’t forgive him for doing so but I better understand why.  I also know I couldn’t understand why my first relationship didn’t work out but in time came to understand the complexity of romantic emotions. I don’t pretend to know everything about emotions, only that they aren’t usually rational.  Yates said it best in Brown Penny  “O love is the crooked thing, There is nobody wise enough To find out all that is in it.” We may think we know what we want but  sometimes life surprises us in unexpected ways.  Now I understand how people end up in complicated romantic situations.  I’ve attached two appropriately fitting songs.
