After my last post, I decided it was time to start fresh. For more on health, fitness, fashion and love, visit The Paleo Project!
Has it really been 7 months since I graduated college? Am I really still unemployed? Yes and yes.
When I was little, the most challenging part about my future was deciding between becoming an actress or a lawyer. I wasn’t much for decisions so I landed on having a tv series about being a lawyer. Even years later in college it wasn’t so much the question of “will I get a job at a magazine” but more of “which magazine should I work for? Self? Glamour?” Life has never seemed impossible to me, it was never would James and I get together but Whennn? I have such belief in myself that only now am I realizing how difficult life can be. Was I spoiled? Was I living behind gold plated doors? Yes.. But even more so I just had this feeling that anything bad that could happen wouldn’t happen to me.
So after months of denial I have finally reached my acceptance phase and this blog is going to discuss the reasons why we deny things that are right in front of us- in love, fitness, food, family… Anything we have issues with. Here are a few things I can now say I have been in a complete naïve state of denial about…
1. Moving in with my boyfriend of 2 years will definitely fix any communication/emotional problems we have steadily had.
2. My highschool metabolism will last forever and I can eat anything I want.
3. If I work out for 3 weeks and stop for 3 weeks and continue this pattern, I’m in shape.
4. Facebook is a great networking tool, so if I read everyone’s status’ all day everyday… I’m technically actively searching for a job.
5. The people you first start being friends with in middle school are the best friends you’ll ever have.
Tomorrow… We’ll discuss how I got over these ideas…
Ok, I hope some of you watched the second episode of The Hills last night. The sad part is, that with the commercials and close-up long shots of the cast just sitting around doing nothing, the actual content of the show is only like 11 minutes. Also, every week they show “scenes from next week” and rope you in and make you think the show is going to be crazy, then you watch all 11 minutes of the show and nothing that happens in the previews actually happens. Huge let down, I would say. But, the show is still going to be successful and I will give you 4 reasons why: Kristin crazy-bitch Cavallari’s antics NEVER get old. Spencer’s crystals and psychotic breakdowns NEVER get old. Heidi 3.0 will continue to morph until we can no longer recognize her–will literally NEVER get old because she wants H size boobs and has taken fat from her thighs and placed it in her face….
So last night the episode, “Rumor Has It” discussed the tabloids covering Kristin’s drug accusations. They said she “parties all night, friends are worried, is it drugs? bla bla bla.” Kristin, who never actually denied the use of drugs, decided to instead confront Stephanie Pratt and Lo at the party she threw. She went right up to them and began flipping out, as usual, because we all know Kristin cannot have a civilized conversation, and she CANNOT be wrong. After sending Stephanie from the party in tears, Kristin texted her and wanted to “meet” in a bar…. the usual setting for these “serious” conversations.
Here is the bitch fight…. For the first time, which is hard for me to admit, I saw Kristin to be in the wrong. Way out line…. I was agreeing with Stephanie Pratt? What is the world coming to…
Anyway… Tune in next week Tuesday @ 10 MTV–I’m thinking Spencer might need to check himself into an insane asylum….

So I don’t usually talk about TV shows and that is mainly because I don’t watch any television show more than once. I have not found a single sitcom that has interested me, a series that has held my attention or a cast that I like. As you know I still watch the Friends DVDs religiously… and if not that, you can find me watching HGTV because I absolutely love watching home renovations and make overs…
I think she is so pretty, honest and flat out amazing. She brought the drama to that show but I loved her so it was great….
When she left, so did I and I never watched the spin off The Hills which starred Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad (LC). But when I heard Kristin was coming back as the main star on The Hills after LC left… you can guess I was very interested.. She was hotter than ever, stealing BF’s left and right… but I still could not help but love her.
I watched the entire season last season and had almost forgot about it until flipping through MTV and the trailer for this season was on. I was Horrified!! Check it out for yourself before you Continue!
As you can see from this–the show touches upon a lot of issues that girls face today. Relationships, cheating, heartbreak, friendships falling apart, but the scariest element of this next season is the f*ed up body image that many girls have. What has become of Heidi (the plastic looking blonde) and what about the drug accusations of Kristin (my girl)….??? I will be extremely interested in seeing how this season plays out and I hope you will join me! The season starts tonight @ 10 on MTV…
For the next few weeks I will be trying to follow the show and recap it for you each week! Love you XOXO
My mom emailed me this morning and asked if there was anything specific I wanted for a graduation gift. In high school I asked for a really nice cannon rebel XT camera for graduation. This year, fortunately, I really cannot think of anything that I absolutely need—except for a job and a place to live! But other than that, I really have everything I need and that is a good feeling. I cannot explain how appreciative I am toward my mother. She is one of the most generous women I know! She loves her kids so so much and we love her right back….
Given that there is nothing I need, I decided to think of something I want. Something pretty and special that I wouldn’t normally ask for….
As much as I love love love to shop, I usually only go for clothing and shoes. I am not into designer bags and have never asked for one. I have received some awesome purses for holidays but usually things that others picked out for me and I ended up loving….. again, I am so grateful to be so fortunate.
So I decided to browse around for personalized bags. Something that wasn’t just pretty or designer but had a little intimacy so that I felt that I chose it and my mother felt that I was the only person who had something like this.
I know that Long Champ has an entire website devoted to personalizing their Le Pliage canvas tote bags…. very bright colors and practical for carrying around a lot of things. Tons of girls at my school have them.
But I was looking for something a little more authentic and a little more grown up. Something I could carry to work. Something leather and bold, but would still have a personal and fun feeling that was a little more discreet.
Their new line of Le Cabas Leather totes are awesome. Pricy, but awesome. You can choose from an array of colors, Black, Brown, White, Tan, Blue, Clay, Red etc. Then within the bag you can choose a bright color: pink, orange, green butterfly, coral etc. You have four options in the bag size, two options in handle length and then for 10 more bucks you can have your initials on the leather……
I fell inlove with this bag immediately. We shall see in about a month if my mother felt the same… either way I thought I would share that great new bag with you!!
Have a wonderful day!
P.S.— BIG Shoutout to my ENGLISH COMM family!!! Goodluck this weekend! I love you all and will miss you more than you know!!! XOXOX
