When Being a Bitch Pays Off…

So— in lieu of me being a miserable bitch the past week, I must confess it worked only to my advantage. Now ladies, I don’t suggest you try this at home unless you are confident that your bitchiness will work in your favor. Some girls haven’t mastered the art of being a bitch yet. I can only tell you that in my breakdown to mr. right the other night, I was then showered in grocery store gifts. You might be wondering what this means…. Here is a photo to better represent it:

Thesis Survival Kit?? Oriental Lilies, because lilies are my favv flower. The April issue of People Style Watch with JENNIFER ANISTON on the cover, because well if you haven’t figured it out already, I love her. A bag of Heath bars and a bag of Almond Joys because those are my two top chocolates and you should know by now how much I love Chocolateee!!!

Let me also mention that he is no lovey-dovey kinda guy. I was completely shocked to see his efforts to cheer me up in such a heart felt gesture….. Again, this was a huge risk on my behalf to be such a crazy bitch just because my life was falling apart in front of me…. but for some reason, he saw the better side of me and loved me still.

There is this great Marilyn Monroe quote

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

I think this is important for us girls to remember. We aren’t perfect, but if we can find a guy who is willing to deal with those moments of absurd, ridiculous, unnecessary bitchiness…. and still love us, not only that but give us chocolate, jennifer aniston and a potted plant of lilies….. I think you should keep him around 🙂

I can’t give you all the answers, each fight is different… but try to keep your fight to one argument at a time. Don’t try to cover every single thing that bothers you–one warranted point should work just fine. Also, try to make your argument really strong. Believe it. Stick to it. If you do, he might start to as well. Finally, and I mean this seriously: Cry. Bawl your eyes out. Not just for him, but for you. Crying is necessary and what better time to do it then when you can get some sympathy and loving for it 😉

What do I wear to bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.

For those of you have experienced the luxurious scent of Chanel No. 5, and for those of you who only know it by name, it is definitely in large part to the brand endorsement of Marilyn Monroe back in 1953 that contributed to the success of the ‘most legendary fragrance’ of all time…

When asked what she wore to bed, Marilyn replied: “Five drops of No. 5″…the fragrance still sits at the top of the shelves and remains a number one seller in women’s perfumes.

In the spirit of scent, I must say, perfume is absolutely the first thing I put on each day. After a shower is the best time to put your perfume on, your pores are still open so the scent will last longer. Also, do not rub your wrists together, that only removes the scent. Dab it on your wrist, behind your ear and if you like a little more, spritz it in the air then walk through it so it will leave a hint on your clothing and hair.

When I sit next to a woman in a theatre, or stand behind one in line at the grocery store, the first thing I will notice is her fragrance. There is nothing I appreciate more in the world of beauty than a unique, feminine and confident scent.

Here are a few scents I adore, either smelling them on my friends, strangers, in malls or have worn myself:

This is the fragrance I wore all through high school. I can still recognize it when someone has it on…

Gucci – Rush

My best friends mother worked for Ralph Lauren and sent us a sample of this. I was hooked and got the bottle a year ago Christmas…. Love is the perfect name for it, I loooove it!

Ralph Lauren – Love


My man got me this fresh scent last year for my 21st birthday… I wear it whenever I go out with him, and YES he notices…

Burberry Brit – Sheer

This is my mother’s signature scent. Whenever I smell it, I think of her… It’s definitely a classic!

Dolce & Gabbana – Light Blue

If there was one luxurious and unnecessary thing I could have an endless supply of it would be perfumes. I would want a whole room filled with tiny glass jars, ones with pumps that you spray on you like a queen, the ones with jeweled embellishments. I would wear a different one everyday, I would never leave home without a little scented love. If only all my dreams could come true…

Remember, the best accessory to any outfit is perfume…. I think Coco Chanel put it best when she said “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” Think about it!
