Wow

June 27, 2008

So I’ve really gotten into the show So You Think You Can Dance? this season. This has to be one of the most beautiful and sexy things I have ever seen. Seriously. I want to sign up for dance classes so I can do this.

While I won’t go so far as to say that I don’t think I can dance, my version of dancing is more like this. Actually, my little sister is in this video. My dancing years predated digital video and youtube. She’s a lot younger than me. Anyway, not quite what you would call sexy.

Smitten

June 22, 2008

So after weeks and weeks of going to the Saturday morning farmers market only to be disappointed, yesterday they actually had stuff! We bought some of the most delicious baby strawberries ever, cucumbers, sugar snap peas, some amazing cheese with a super sexy Italian name that I can’t remember, and beets. And a bunch of peonies.

OMG, I am obsessed. Are these not the most beautiful flowers? They’re so fluffy! Mine are a combination of this color and a super soft baby pink that’s almost white. Love. I think I may have finally made a landscaping decision- my yard will not be complete without at least a few of these.

Plus when you say the plural, it sounds like penes. Yes, I am a 7 year old boy.

Am I the only one?

who is completely annoyed by shaving cream/ gel? I mean, not the product itself, but the packaging. I keep my shaving gel in the shower… due to the necessity of water and nakedness this seems the most logical place to shave. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on that. So really, why do all of the cheap shaving creams come in a freaking metal can? ┬áMetal + water = ugly rust stains that don’t like to be removed. How hard would it be for them too just use a different can ? Or cover that little bottom edge with some plastic or something? I’ve seen plenty of “fancy” gels that come in a tube… but I’ve never seen packaging like that on cheap brands. When it comes to shaving cream, I don’t want to spend that much…. but if it means no more gross stains in the shower, I may have to start splurging.

Swimsuits

June 8, 2008

Kelly’s recent post about bra-sized swim suits really caught my eye. I’m cursed with a pretty large chest for my small frame (shut up, it is a curse!) and it makes fitting things pretty tricky sometimes. Especially things like swimsuits that should be pretty tight. I usually go the two piece/ different sizes route, but I visit the beach maybe twice a summer and really, noone needs to be subjected to my blue-white stomach.

So I’ve bee looking into the swimsuits that are sold by bra size, and I saw a few rack’s of them in Macy’s today. Some were pretty cute and they had my size (and they were on sale!!) so I tried some on. Oh. my. God. Why did noone think of this before? The fit is so perfect! Enough coverage in the chest, but still tight enough everywhere else. It’s also the first time I’ve been able to do a plunging neckline… the attached bra keeps everything nicely in place. Its the most flattering swimsuit ever. Seriously.

The one I got is a solid black maillot* style, with a plunging neckline and a twist detail on the front. Very classic and pretty sexy but still suitable for the upcoming trip with the in-laws. I’m loving the idea of wearing it with this hat, my huge gucci sunglasses, and my gold sandals.

Normally I dread the beach, but this year I say bring it on!

* doesn’t maillot sound so much sexier than “tank suit”?
