FYI, F21 is now using safety yellow bags or at least some of them are. In case you have orders going to your place of work, you have been warned. It reminds me of my 1st QVC order, years ago, which arrived in bright yellow with QVC QVC QVC stamped in red all over it. Mortified.
While at the mall, I meant to take a full length pic in a fitting room and totally forgot. Do I look relaxed? Yes, I do. I spent 1 hour there and walked away with 1/3 of my tax info completed. It's amazing what can be accomplished w/out the usual distractions. As far as the outfit, I knew I wanted to wear the striped top. Then I thought, Skittles! Even though it was a bit warm, I went w/the Cambridge for bright candy color. I couldn't find my Jackie in cerise. Candy necklace and green patent shoes complete the theme.
Necklace: The Limited SU10, I think (Similar in blue, rows of beads in coral and I love kitsch, but fruit?)
Jeans (29S): My beloved toothpicks)
While in F21 I saw the Bali print skirt (2000012864), which is a polyester ringer for Anthro's silk Phosphorescence skirt from last year.
How I'm livin'
1. I'm not a sweets person. I'm salty, baby. However, I love Skittles, hence the post title. I recently bought some large packs on sale, but haven't opened them. I feel guilty about the impact of sugar, esp when I don't get cravings for it. Skittles remind me of ice skating because I faithfully purchased them from the vending machine when I was young. And they have a hilarious FB fan page. I'll probably bust open a pack soon.
2. We had popcorn for dinner (salty!) and watched The Fighter. Early in the day it crossed my mind to have popcorn for dinner, nothing else, and G Money suggested it to me a few hours later. Why can't I use my psychic prowess for the Lotto? The Fighter was good. Christian Bale is phenomenal. Of course it doesn't hurt that he's hawt. I'll keep him as a fantasy, though, because I imagine he's a crazy mo' fo' and that's because of his talent, not the crazy rant that was foolishly leaked long ago. I'll let you Google it. Melissa Leo was fantastic. I think that's the first thing I've seen her in. Amy Adams. Always stellar. Ok, Wahlberg is still Marky Mark. However, he has a slight Matt Damon thing about him, which is attractive and he simply has "it." I wasn't as bothered or distracted by him as I thought I might be. He was great in Rock Star & Boogie Nights. He seems to work hard and I hope he gets that role of a lifetime in the future.
3. You haven't seen any Idol updates from me because G Money has a habit of disappearing when it's not on, freeing me to blog/talk on phone/channel surf/watch reality smut on tv while on treadmill, without an audience. Of course on Idol nights he seems to want together time. I'm working w/his schedule a bit, so I don't say no. I think what I need to do is find out exactly when Idol is on (they've moved it since the beg) and then try to get him on a different together time schedule. Oh, I asked if he wanted his blog name changed and he said no. Doesn't want to confuse anyone. *lol* I guess he doesn't mind it if some think he's throwing duckets around, making it rain.
