Yesterday, out of convenience to my apartment, and somewhat the fact that its half the price of my current gym, I joined Planet Fitness.
I got in my inaugural workout, but left after 20minutes. There is plenty of cardio equiment, but it was the weight training area I’m worried about. It was so overcrowded, there was very little space, and everyone seemed to have a workout buddy but me…so that meant they were hogging machines 2x as long.
Not to mention, being the new girl at the gym, I did not assert my “authority” as I was still testing out the waters.
I left feeling as if I got in no workout at all, and a little uneasy about my decision…was it convenience over quality? I didn’t realize it could get much worse than the crowds at Retro Fitness, but now I’m wondering just how wrong I might’ve been.
I’ll give it a few more visits, hoping I soon figure out a good time when next to no meatheads are there hogging the weights, the machines, and the area I need to WORK-IT-OUT
In case it’s been forgotten how much I love my little fur-man!
My friend Bridget did her magic to one of my photos, trying to spiffy up my image for an audition I wanted to partake in (sadly I missed the deadline).
But at least this picture still gets good use…for heaven’s sake its National Shrimp Day!
Anyone out there that read this just want to shake these two into getting jobs and saving money? Man, what jerks!
(Now…who wants to go see “The Great Gatsby” this weekend??)
1959 Gottschee’r Bowling Club. (Just found my new fave neighborhood bar)
SWOON! I should just buy this print already.
This is about all the skin I can bare right now…because where the hell is mother nature on this rodeo called “spring?”.
(ok so today is a little nicer than say the day before…but still, she needs to get the memo already)
For now, it looks like booties with skimmers (the springiest thing I will wear at the moment till the sun shines some warmth on NYC), and a fleck of wrist for my bracelets. Other than that, I am covered up like its January.
How are you making do with Spring’s late arrival? Give me some ideas on how to make my winter wear more “spring-y”.
Today’s post comes courtesy of my bird-like attraction to all things sparkly.
And my failure of a manicure using Revlon’s Nail Art Moon Candy (not on fingers shown above). Do NOT, I repeat……… DO NOT……….. waste your money on Revlon’s sparkly little duo of a nail polish piece. I tried to use it 2x in the past 3 months and each time is an epic disaster. By the time you get even 3-4pc. of the large glitter flecks on your nails, its just a goopy sticky never-drying pile of crap. It does not, and will not, come out looking like the picture of the nails attached to the merchandise stand for this product.
So, after much frustration, I quickly removed the mistake of a nail polish, and replaced it with this. (shown above).
While my self mani’s come out quite shoddy…I must say its a much greater success than my first attempt at painting nails on a Sunday afternoon.
And now I wait…one day…till it starts to chip away leaving me to look more unprofessional than I already am.
RIP GEORGE JONES!!!!!!!!! A fine talent you were!
What I Want: FOR SPRING
As each new season starts, I always find myself wanting a few new pieces to kick my closet into high gear. Spring is (slowly) making its self known to NYC, and I’ve got my eyes on the hunt for a few items…
A STATEMENT NECKLACE:
Makes any simple outfit splendid! Certainly adds spice to t-shirts and jeans!
A FITTED LEATHER JACKET:
The one I have currently, its more of a bomber style. I want one with a wee slimmer fit, and simple details. Perfect for reigning in all those loose tees or flowy dresses, right?
WAVY, EASY HAIR:
A la Nicole Richie, Alexa Chung, The Fall 2013 Pucci runway show, etc…got my hair appointment scheduled for May 18th, but it can’t get here fast enough!
