[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

Okay, so I KNOOOOW that yesterday was Hump Day Hotties Wednesdays, but I just had to do a post as an ODE to the absolute killer HOTNESS that was the movie Takers.  I couldn’t help oogling all of those men while watching the movie, clearly the casting director had to be a woman!  She has good taste, lol.  All of them were sexy and did I mention that they were in suits for most of the movie??? for sure!  Without further ado, feast your eyes on these beauties:


Hayden Christensen

Idris Elba

Paul Walker (My favorite, this man is supremely perfect)

Michael Ealy (I’m a sucker for light eyes, especially blue ones.  YUM)

Jay Hernandez

Aren’t these men fine?  I was beyond high off of their sexy while watching the movie!  Takers, you did good!  You took my heart, every single one of ya 😉

Hump Day Hotties – Wednesday Eyecandy

[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

A new feature that I’ll be doing is Hump Day Hotties every Wednesday 😉  Just a lil something to get us through the rest of the week.  Feel FREE to chime in with some of your favorite eye candy candidates so that I can show them off in future weekly installments.  ENJOY!

This week I’m showing off three of my favorite hunks from my television line up, 2 guys from Leverage on TNT and one from White Collar on USA.  Must See Tv INDEED!

Matt Bomer – Neal Caffrey “White Collar

He is just so smooth, with his sexy self.  On the show, he is an expert thief and forger who oozes class and coolness.  Always in a tailored suit, this man is the definition of “hubba hubba”.  YES PLEASE, I’ll take some of THAT.

Aldis Hodge – Alec Hardison on “Leverage

This yummy dude is the “geek” of the show, providing them with all of the intel and hacks to pull of their cons.  There’s something very sexy about a “nerd” who looks anything but!  He’s buff, he’s cool, sarcastic, and looks damn fine cleaned up in a suit playing like he had a British accent for a con-job!  Yowza, why weren’t all geeks like that?

Christian Kane – Eliot Spencer “Leverage

He’s the tough bad ass of the crew, beats up anyone who gets in their way during a con.  Buff, brooding, yummy!  Did I mention that he can sing?  Loves it!

36 Things Every Single Girl Should Do

[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

I stumbled across this list in the blogosphere and thought it’d be fun to see where I measure up, have I done many of the things?  What about you, how does your life measure up on this list? (I’ve bolded the things that I’ve done)

36 Things Every Single Girl Must Do Before She Settles Down

**To Build Your Confidence**

1. Go to a movie alone. [me: I have no issues with doing that, I’m not there to talk to you during the movie anyway!]

2. Lift weights.

3. Try surfing, water-skiing, or some activity you don’t already know how to do. Could be riding a bicycle. [Me: Does Karoake count? I hadn’t done that til this year with some alcohol confidence]

4. Take out the trash, set a mousetrap, do your taxes, build a bookcase.

5. Live alone, or at least move apartments in NYC without the help of family.

6. Train for (and finish) a huge physical test like a half-marathon.

7. Go to a scary doctor’s appointment by yourself.

8. Quit your job.

9. Fly to a foreign country by yourself. [I wasn’t alone, but I was a student ambassador and with a group of people that I didn’t know.  14 without my mom was something I’d never done, not THAT far (7 European countries, 3 weeks)]

10. Learn to stand up for yourself. [me: Yeah that’s not a problem]

**To Be Able to Look Back and Say “I Had Fun”**

11. Witness something once-in-a-lifetime, like Jokulsarlon, a lake next to a melting glacier in Iceland.

12. Revel in being able to watch all the TV you want.

13. Get drunk during the day, just because you can. Attend Santacon, the convention for santas, or similar.

14. Go on a date with someone who actually makes you nervous. [me: good nervous, not like “i think he’s a serial killer…oh what the hell may as well]

15. Go out with an older man who takes you somewhere nice and makes you feel like a million bucks.

16. Go out with a guy who makes you laugh ‘til it hurts.

**To Get Perspective**

17. Be a good wingwoman. It’s not always about you.

18. Chill with your widowed and single grandma. She knows “alone”!

19. Volunteer.

**To Make You Appreciate the Next Guy**

20. Do at least one Valentine’s Day alone. [me: oh wait, i had a choice in that??]

21. Attend a wedding (or 15) alone.

22. Date the creeps. You’ll really value the nice guys afterward. [meh, not going for that one. i already know a good one when I see him]
**To Make You Feel Sexy and Attractive**

23. Buy yourself some flowers.

24. Invest in a LBD (little black dress) and some sexy stilettos.

25. Sit at a bar by yourself and drink a martini. Cool.

26. Buy something frivolous and expensive that you LOVE wearing.

**To Make the Most of Your Free Time**

27. Finish all your schooling if you can.

28. Throw yourself into something time-consuming, like learning a foreign language. You may not have time to do this again until you retire and the kids are off to college. [I want to refreshen my Spanish so that I’m fluent at it, need to stop putting it off!]
**To Make Yourself a Better Partner in the Future**

29. Make a list of all your faults.

30. Learn to cook well.

31. Get some hobbies. Something’s gotta keep you occupied—plus it’ll make you seem interesting. [blogging count? and being a foodie :D]

32. Let your married friends edit your online dating profile.

33. Get your finances in order. [ugh, I’m trying…would be nice to have super steady income to DO so!]

**To Appreciate Being Single**

34. Babysit someone’s baby for an hour. [babysitting right now. I love the kids, love my lil munchkin. And I was a nanny, so um yeah, got that covered]

35. Help a friend through her divorce or a bad break-up.

36. Host a girls-only night. I think some coupled-up women forget how much we need each other.

What have I forgotten? What do you make sure to do while you’re still single?

Socialite Adventures Pt 2

[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

This weekend was the birthday weekend of my fellow socialite cousin, Ashlee.  As you know from the last post about her sister’s birthday, we like to glam it up and go out on the town diva style 😀  This outing took us to the Butterfly Sushi Lounge on Grand Avenue in Chicago and then Vibe nightclub.  Fun was definitely had by all and here’s the photo proof:

The birthday girl

now for the rest:

Happy 23rd birthday baby girl!!!


Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

I am NOT a morning person by any stretch of the imagination.  Brain feels fried and groggy, body has aches like a 90 year old who did stunt devil’s work for decades, face looks like it’s been hit with a mallet….yeah I know, drop dead sexy visual, right?   So what’s a girl to do who has a job that starts before noon?

MUSIC!  Music is my saving grace, able to alter any mood with its melodious harmonies and crooning voices.  The invention of the iPod is probably the greatest one in recent history (besides the internet of course, couldn’t talk to you peeps without that, right?) and allows thousands of songs to be conveniently available at the spin of a tiny dial.

My question for you is:  What are three songs that instantly perk you up, get you on your way, and turn AAAAHHHH GRRRR into MMMM.   Let’s hear it!

I’ll start.  My 3 instant mood perk me up songs are:

1. PYT – Michael Jackson = I love this song so much I’m having it as a part of my license plate…what? I AM a P(retty) Y(oung) T(hang) so it fits!

2. Blame it on the Boogie – Jackson 5 = this song just gets me going! it’s so upbeat and I love the end.  Video is cute too, just all around fun.

3. 5 Star Chick – Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj = Had to get my bit of ghetto driving music in here 😀

Well those are mine!  What are your 3 get up and get em songs?
