Dream A Little Dream...

*Update* The Lord Voldemort i'm referring to in the dream is actually my ex (a nickname my loving girlfriends gave him). I didn't actually have a dream that I called Harry Potter's nemesis to come be with me at the end of the world:0)

I have been having a hectic week in the dream department. They aren't all really nightmares so much as I think my brain trying to tell me something? I am a pisces through and through because I am a super dreamy person, I mean i'll probably stop 2 or 3 times while writing this post just to daydream about something totally unrelated. I really do believe that dreams can be a way for your subconscious to work stuff out and tell you things you wouldn't realize while you are awake (or maybe not want to realize).

I just thought i'd share one with you and see what you think...

I'm at my Mom's house and we see on tv that a huge snow storm is coming and the world is ending... creepy right? I look at my Mom and she is all serious that she believes it so we all start getting upset. I am calling everyone I love so we can all be together for the end because that's what anyone would want right? Well I call Lord Voldemort and all he can say is "Oh bye" and we hang up. It starts to snow really hard and that my dream ends with me just being really upset because he couldn't be bothered to get off his ass and spend the end of the world with me?!

I don't think I need to pull out a Ouija board and contact Freud to figure out what that one means! Yikes that dream stuck with me all week. Any thoughts?

*Little side note* I have been trying to find a place to get pretty pics for my posts because I do hate to do a random google search and not give credit where credit is due. So I was on one my favorite blogs today Miss Elizabeth Marie's It's Unbeweavable and she always has really pretty and lovely pics. I noticed that she had underneath them and I checked it out and i'm in love! Go check out her blog and that site if you have a minute you'll love it too.

A Giggle For Your Thursday...

Umm well you might change that to a WTF and wet your pants a lil' Thursday. I was just wandering around YouTubeland and found this fabulous cooking how-to video. It's called "Cooking With Dog" and stars Francis a gray toy poodle and an unidentified woman who does all the cooking. What the hell??? I just sat there and watched the whole thing with an awed look on my face because it's pure genius. Several things come to my mind...

1st - What does the dog have to do with anything and why does he have a semi-French accent when his owner/pimp/genius is obviously Asian?

2nd - Umm beans and and a ton of sugar really go together? The whole thing looks super gross but have any of you had this before?? Am I missing out on Taiyaki??

3rd - Where can I get an iron like that because I want fish-shaped pancakes and waffles stat!

If you enjoyed this video then please stay tuned because ole' Francis has got more of them and I will keep them coming!

Thought So...

Well as I mentioned below Rachelle Leferve is going to be replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard for the 3rd installment of the Twilight Saga (hehe that name still makes me laugh). I was really wondering why on Earth would she chose to do some random movie instead of being apart of a huge Blockbuster movie like Twilight? Turns out she might not have made the decision.

Here is her response...

“I was fully committed to the ‘Twilight’ saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria. I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules. My commitment to ‘Barney’s Version’ is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for ‘Eclipse.’ Although the production schedule for ‘Eclipse’ is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for ‘Eclipse,’ never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10 day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part. I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the ‘Twilight’ audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I’ve received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of ‘Eclipse’ only the very best."

Lameson! If that is really how it went down that completely sucks for her. It's also really stupid for them to change up the character for the THIRD movie! I think it'll make it awkward and even if Bryce can pull off the angry vampire look it'll still be a stretch.

In other recasting news. Here is a short clip of Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner at Comic-Con. UGH my hate for Kristen really runs deep at this point but the fact that the girl couldn't even be bothered to wash herself before going urks me. It's so obvious that she could care less about this character and a movie which is going to make her known for many years to come.

Be grateful bitch you need a bath and a hug asap!

Why Didn't They Recast Bella...

I heard about some interesting news about the third installment of the Twilight movies today.
Oh why couldn't have been that Kristen 'wet towel at the beach' Stewart was recast???
Looks like Rachelle Lefevre is out and Bryce Dallas Howard is in?? Turns out Rachelle had some scheduling conflicts because she is shooting a Dustin Hoffman film during the filming of Eclipse.
Seriously! Seriously? It doesn't even say she's starring in the movie so it doesn't make sense to me why she would drop out of Eclipse!! It seems to me like if you are blessed enough to be cast in a film that will be seen by millions and millions of people and make way more than that, then you stay put and drop everything else. Unless that wasn't the real reason for replacing her?
Either way I thought she did a good Victoria except for the fact that her hair was more strawberry blonde then fiery red. I can't see sweet innocent Bryce Dallas Howard being as intense and scary as it takes to pull off Victoria in the 3rd book but we shall see. Lameson (that is a term my friends and I use when someone or something is completely lame, stupid and/or a waste of time... pronounced lame-ah-son)

Lucky lucky girl

Some Happy For Your Tuesday...

Well now this is fabulous!! By now you should know that I love me a cute doggy and a happy ending! That is why this story made my Tuesday.

Daizy, a 4-year-old Blue Lacy, is a survivor. For 10 months after Hurricane Ike, she was missing. The hurricane blew down Joe and Kathy Bauer’s back fence, so they took Daizy and her Blue Lacy companion, Hank, to the Pet Palace in Webster for boarding until they could get the fence repaired.
“We ended up getting a call at 10 a.m. saying the dogs were gone. Both of ‘em,” said Joe Bauer.
The owners of the Pet Palace tell 11 News the two dogs dislocated a metal guillotine-style doggy door, worked their way through the initial set of gates of their outside run, then destroyed a section of chain link gate in the facility’s inner yard. They escaped through a 4- to 6-foot iron fence at the perimeter of the Pet Palace property.
They found Hank that same day wandering in a wooded area behind the boarding kennel, but Daizy was gone.
“The kids would ask when it was freezing cold, when we had the snow, when we had thunderstorms, they would say, 'Where is Daizy? What do you think she’s doing? Is she OK?'” said Bauer.

The family, with the help of their friends and an extended network of Blue Lacy advocates they found online, printed fliers, offered a reward and plastered neighborhoods with yard signs bearing Daizy’s picture.
“I couldn’t bear the thought of her thinking we abandoned her,” said Kathy Bauer. “I just couldn’t live with that.” But for 10 months, Daizy stayed missing.
Last week, the family received the news they had been waiting for. Two of the Bauers' friends said they were positive they’d seen Daizy wandering in a wooded area along a power line easement in Webster, less than a mile away from the kennel where she was last seen, back in September.
With Hank leading the way, Joe went searching for Daizy and found her, just as their friends had promised. But after months on her own, apparently fending for herself, she was too skittish and nervously ran away.
Last Thursday night, Kathy made the trip with them. Neighbors reported seeing the dog emerge late at night from the wooded area through a break in a fence at the end of a cul-de-sac. Neighbors had become accustomed to leaving food out for her. She would make her rounds then disappear back into the woods at daybreak.

This time, Kathy called to Daizy and gave their familiar family whistle. The dog bolted right toward her.
“She sat and lifted her paw for a handshake like she always would. Then she started whimpering,” said Kathy, who admitted she was whimpering a bit, too.
“I was in the middle of the street at 11:45 at night crying and thanking the Lord. It was a wonderful, wonderful reunion.”
The Blue Lacy is the official state dog breed of Texas. The breed was developed in the Texas Hill Country and is reportedly a mix of Greyhound, scent hound and coyote. It's a breed that dog experts predict would be able to fend well for itself if lost or abandoned. And now, although still at times a bit shy and nervous around strangers after her 10 month solo ordeal, Daizy is back at home with the rest of the Bauer pack.

“When you have a bond with an animal like that and you know how strong-willed she is, you just don’t give up,” said Kathy.

Aww isn't that the sweetest story? I would have to be put in a padded cell if Maizey Monroe went missing!! The fact that Daizy was kick-ass enough to survive for 10 months on her own just makes me that much more amazed at how awesome dogs really are. Hope you enjoyed your happy!

Is anyone else worried...

Here are two sneak peek clips of New Moon that were shown at Comic-Con yesterday and maybe it's just my annoyance of the tweens screaming their heads off whenever Jacob or Edward is shown but it don't look very good. I'm trying to give it a fair chance because I have always thought that Kristen Stewart was the world's worst actress. The first movie made me angry because you could definitely not tell that Bella and Edward were in love and that's mainly because she always looked stoned or uncomfortable. I don't know take a look for yourself and tell me what you think. I'm glad they made Alice prettier and her hair looked less like a wig this time. Jacob's stomach... well that is nice, it's really wrong that he is only 17.

They opened the official website for the movie and it's a pretty awesome interactive site. Take a look when you get a chance.

Like I promised!! Here is the 1st look at the teaser trailer for Alice in Wonderland! It looks fabulously dark and demented and no I DO NOT think Johnny Depp ripped Heath Ledger's Joker character. It looks very genuine and something all his own.

I Lost My Choo...

Lovers of all things fabulous in footwear rejoin.... this fall Jimmy Choo will be doing a collection that will be available at select H&M stores!!!

This autumn, British accessory brand Jimmy Choo will bring its international glamour and covetable shoes and bags to selected H&M stores. The collection will be available from November 14 in around 200 stores across the world. It is the first time that H&M is collaborating with an accessories brand, and to celebrate Jimmy Choo will extend its design vision for this collection to women’s clothing to complement the accessories.

“We are privileged to be among the fashion greats who have been affiliated
with H&M so far, and to be designing a collection appealing to fashion savvy,
street smart women, and to be including some great pieces for men, too.
Jimmy Choo will bring to H&M a sophisticated, fashion forward, accessible and glamorous collection - the perfect party pieces to buy now and then wear out that night!”

Tamara Mellon, Founder and President, Jimmy Choo.

“We adore Jimmy Choo’s shoes and bags. They are glamorous and sexy, and they add instant style to the simplest of outfits. I like the way we have worked with clothes to accessorize the shoes and bags rather than the other way around. This collaboration is particularly exciting because it’s our first shoe designer collection. It’s a joy to be able to offer top end designer shoes and bags of excellent quality to our customers.”
Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor, H&M.

Since its launch in 1996, Jimmy Choo has been such a phenomenal success that the brand name has become part of popular culture - say the words “Jimmy Choo”, and you know you mean shoes. In Hollywood, Jimmy Choo shoes have become a red-carpet essential, and have been worn at the Oscars by winners such as Cate Blanchett, Halle Berry and Hilary Swank among many other actresses. The famous Jimmy Choo shoes will be at the heart of the exclusive collection for H&M, but there’s more. Jimmy Choo has also become well known for its bags, and for H&M there will be a whole range of accessories to complete the look.

I can not even begin to tell you how excited I am for this. Ever since I heard those four little words uttered from Miss Carrie Bradshaw, "I lost my Choo!" I have longed for a pair of Jimmy Choo's. However even though I am an extremist when it comes to footwear (what's wrong with 100+ pairs of shoes when there are 365 days in a year?!) I could never fully convince myself that it is perfectly fine to spend 700+ on one pair of shoes. *Gasp* I know there are plenty of you that don't agree but I am recent college grad people!! I am also currently indebted to that SKANK Sallie Mae so I have to deal with her first. One day they will fill my closet but right now hearing this news has made my day! Hmm now I just have to figure out which H&M they will be coming to so I can get ready to level a bitch if she gets in my way.
Size 8 1/2's you have been warned!!

Why Not Love Yourself A Little More Today...

Hola Lovelies! A couple weeks ago I was wandering around blogland and I saw that Miss Brunette Bombshell was having a perfect body initiative. She wanted to know what made everyone's body perfect to them. This is something I, along with many of you i'm sure, have always struggled with.

I graduated high school weighing an extremely waify 110 pounds and I could eat a Geno's cheesesteak each night before I went to bed and never thought twice about it. Well 8 years later... ummm let's just say that is no longer the case. After this last breakup especially it is taking me awhile to get back to where I feel great in my denim cutoffs that I adore or skinny jeans that leave no room for breakup lbs.

I wanted to look at myself and pick some things that I always love about me for a change. I think that we often spend so much time putting ourselves down that it feels weird or awkward to actually love something and that's super sad to me. I know that is just the way our society works and while it seems that there is no stopping it anytime soon but sometimes you will come across a person who is so comfortable in their own skin (not in a stuck up i'm the shit kind of way) that it is a complete breath of fresh air.

So yesterday my response was posted and I thought I would share with all of you...

I love my eyelashes cause they are long and flirty

and i'll bat them to get my way:0)
Also my skinny feet since they allowed me to do ballet for 10 years and look really pretty with some pink polish!

I have since wanted to include one more thing...

"My heart because even though the poor thing has been dented, broken and smashed it still puts itself back together and waits with hope that one day it'll be put to use with someone who handles it very carefully with love."

I think there will always things about me that I think are a work in progress and there is nothing I can do about that but it felt good today to talk about the parts that I love.

I Knew It...

**Warning** Next post is not safe for the kiddies or the wimpy who don't like a good F-bomb every now and then.

Ahh yes being kinda... well super girly it is often quite a surprise to people when they find out just how much I curse in a days time. I don't mean to say the F-word so much it just comes out so naturally and any word that is a noun, verb and adjective should be used more often than just a regular word right??

Like when you are driving along and are soon-to-be really late for work and some idiot in a sedan gets in front of you in the left lane and starts going 55 mph when you are used to going 80 it feels fabulous to scream "GET OUTTA MY WAY YOU FUCKIN ASSHAT!!!" right? Well for me it does anyway so that's why when I was driving to work this morning and heard about this on radio I felt comforted to know that my brain is making me curse to help me with the pain of having to deal with a really horrible driver. If this is not the case for you, you can keep going along with your life saying things like "darn" and "sugar" when you are walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night and smash your toe into the nightstand.

Swearing Makes Pain More Tolerable
That muttered curse word that reflexively comes out when you stub your toe could actually make it easier to bear the throbbing pain, a new study suggests.
Swearing is a common response to pain, but no previous research has connected the uttering of an expletive to the actual physical
experience of pain.
"Swearing has been around for centuries and is an almost universal human linguistic phenomenon," said Richard Stephens of Keele University in England and one of the authors of the new study. "It taps into emotional brain centers and appears to arise in the right brain, whereas most
language production occurs in the left cerebral hemisphere of the brain."
Stephens and his fellow Keele researchers John Atkins and Andrew Kingston sought to test how swearing would affect an individual's
tolerance to pain. Because swearing often has an exaggerating effect that can overstate the severity of pain, the team thought that swearing would lessen a person's tolerance.
As it turned out, the opposite seems to be true.
The researchers enlisted 64 undergraduate volunteers and had them submerge their hand in a tub of ice water for as long as possible while repeating a swear word of their choice. The experiment was then repeated with the volunteer repeating a more common word that they would use to describe a table.
Contrary to what the researcher expected, the volunteers kept their hands submerged longer while repeating the swear word.
The researchers think that the increase in pain tolerance occurs because swearing triggers the body's natural
"fight-or-flight" response. Stephens and his colleagues suggest that swearing may increase aggression (seen in accelerated heart rates), which downplays weakness to appear stronger or more macho.
"Our research shows one potential reason why swearing developed and why it persists," Stephens said.

Handmade Faire...

I am very sorry that I haven't been giving my little pink blog as much love as it deserves. I have been spending a lot time cocktailing with my girlies (hey it's Summer you gotta) and the rest of the time I have working my butt off preparing for...

What is Handmade Faire you ask??? It's a giant craft fair that I have been selected to participate in. So along with everything that I have available in my lovely little Esty shop, I have been creating some new pieces mainly with duct tape and feathers (not together well not yet at least) and i'm really excited how everything is coming out. I will of course post pictures of the show and how our booth comes out. Not sure how close any of you lovely followers are located but if you are near NJ I would love to have you come visit!! It's Saturday July 18th from 10am to 4pm at Freedom Park in Medford, NJ. Look for the Maizey & Olive booth!!

Couples Retreat...

Hola and happy Tuesday everyone! There are so many good movies coming up and this is definitely one of them. I had heard Kristen Davis, Vince Vaughn and Jason Bateman (some of my favs) were filming a movie together awhile ago but never knew what it was about. Then I stumbled across the trailer this morning and it looks really funny! Check it out and see what you think... bummer that it doesn't come out til October though.

Happy 4th of July...

Hola everyone!! Hope you all have a fabulously fun and safe holiday. This is the first year that I will not be down the shore so I am a little bummed but I am off to find some fun somewhere.

Also wanted to say a big gracias for all your lovely comments on my last post. Just reading about how some of you have the same feeling or have even gotten up and made your dreams happen makes me feels so much more positive! I am grateful for all my blogland friends!

Just a Small Town Girl...

... living in a lonely world! She took the midnight train going anywhere!!

Seriously though can I look out my bedroom window and see this? I have been feeling the rumblings in my heart for awhile now... I need something new. I was born in Fresno, California and was moved to Southern New Jersey when I was four years old and I really wonder what would've happened if we had just stayed in Cali? Who would I be? What about if I moved to North Dakota or Florida or New Mexico? Who knows? All I know is that I have got to try life somewhere else or I fear that I will wake up one day in a town where everyone knows everything and nothing is news cause you've heard it all before. That is a nightmare. Lord Voldemort always laughed when I talked about getting out of this town because I am so rooted here, I mean it is funny to think about me just up and leaving but at the same time it's all I wish for. Is there anyone out there that has been in my situation and just left? I mean really just packed their stuff and gotten out?? Sorry to get all serious on you but I just have to know.

In Summertime especially I love me a good book, is there anything more relaxing then sitting on the beach with a funny book and a cocktail? Since I tend to lean towards the funny side of life chick lit has always been my favorite genre. So you can imagine how excited I was when I got a message about doing some reviews for a new site devoted to the love of the girly book called Novelicious. I quickly came in contact with Kirsty who is adorable and is from Manchester so she ends her emails with cheers! ... which I love! So since they have UK covered I will be reviewing the fabulous authors we have here in the US. So which book did I chose to start off with??
Umm hello...

Of course I chose Twilight! Was there anyone who thought differently? I have so many ideas and great authors that I love and will be covering soon but I personally believe it's my job to get everyone I come in contact with to read this series. Go on over and check out my first review and let me know what you think!
