Everyone Needs Good Friends

Cherish your good friends, hang with them in person more often and put down the technology!  Check out the post here on keeping connected with the bffs in your life: http://www.socialitedreams.com/blog-posts/the-love-of-girl-friends.html

Rihanna and Katy Perry, bffs

 

I’ve created a monster!

I can’t keep my hands out of my hair….I’m in love….:weeping:  I know that in order for it to be healthy and growing, I need to not have my fingers in it all day which can cause knots, I KNOW this, but if it’s not covered, i can’t help but play in the soft curls!  I want to pat and coil and play and rub…is that so bad?

Also, I need to learn how to DO my hair.  I did the finger coils myself and thats a cool idea (if i can ever 1. get to do my whole head without being tired, lol and 2. learn to do them tighter and smaller myself), but I want to learn how to braid and do twists, both flat to my head and individual all over.  I have my work cut out for me!  This is the girl who kept my weekly hair appointment and just let a stylist do whatever she wanted!  Until now I never really attempted to do anything to my own locks, other than flatironing sometimes or spiraling with curlers.  I suppose I’ll have to get my mom to teach me the art of braiding and twists! (guess I should have learned that a good 10 years ago).

The next time that I wash my hair (couple of days, trying to let the rodded curls last but i keep PLAYING in them!), i may attempt to twist my hair…yikes, we’ll see!

hair heros:

I’d Have Kissed Her

I’ve been rocking out to the album “One of the Boys” by the coyishly cool Katy Perry.

I’m really feeling her fun style, and find myself in songs like “If You Can Afford Me”, which boasts such lyrics as:

If you want me, it takes more than a wink,
And more than a drink and more than you think.
If you want me you’re gonna have to break the bank, tonight.
Cuz some don’t have the patience, some call me high-maintenance
But you pay the bill, cuz, that’s the deal.

If you want me, then stop begging I don’t put out for charity
If you want me there’s no discount price tonight

Come on, those lyrics are AWESOME, and would have been my theme song in South Beach Miami if she’d come out 4 years ago. Then there are the more love songs of “Mannequin” where she wants the guy to feel how she feels and stop being so uptight and cold to her, and the great song “I Think I’m Ready” where she feels the need to grow up and get out of “friend” territory with the bad boys and into being appreciated and loved by a good man. I really really like that song.

I’m used to opening my own doors and splitting the checks
He introduced me, was always just a friend
I bought a new dress, he never noticed
Always falling for these bad boys, such a challenge

You were such a surprise
An unexpected gift
Told myself I don’t deserve you
And this is just a phase
Could I get used to being loved the right way?
I wanna argue, but there is nothing to say

Okay, I can’t write a post about Katy Perry and not mention everyone’s favorite song, “I Kissed a Girl”. That song is pretty badass, I like the beat and sound so much. May even get ring tone status 😉 And look at her, if i were in an experimental phase, I’d kiss her too!

also, the song “Thinking of You”  has been on repeat and a ringtone for me.  The video is truly spectacular and underrated in my opinion.  The clothing, the men, the sad storyline, the acting….lord, it’s a breathtaking video that even makes me cry.  A 2 hr romantic drama tragedy condensed into 4 minutes…LOVE IT

I love you too!

ps. i love you

Just finished watching P.S. I Love You and I must say, it’s one of the best movies i’ve ever seen. I cry, I laugh, I cry and laugh at the same time. Gerard Butler was so incredibly charming that he made me want to book a trip to Ireland for the off-chance hope of meeting a tall, dark and handsome stranger on the road who could possibly be as sweet as him. Everyone should have a Gerry Kennedy in their life to love them, hold them, make them laugh uncontrollably, piss them off just to make up.

Hilary Swank did a wonderful job in her first romantic comedy and I applaud her. She was sweet, fiesty, heartwarming.

God, I’m tearing up again just thinking of the movie. Bravo to everyone involved, I love you too.
