Moon rocks

Some of the best Apollo 11 photographs taken from NASA’s online Apollo library. Happy Anniversary to landing on the moon. What an accomplishment. I wish I could have watched in amazement when history was made. All i want now is a moon rock!

Dear Bentley,

I love you. Oooppsies did I say it too soon? You would be a perfect fit in another life. However ,I see you less than amused having to park in front of an apartment and having an owner who lives in sweats when at all possible. Its not you its me.

Your one true love.

Dear Louis Vuitton,
Not only do you you carry all of my essentials so seamlessly, you look good upside down. How do you do it? Please write back. And if you don't I will have to tell Marc he is better.

Dear Love Birds,
Where in the hell do you find time to lay around like this? Honestly.
P.S- You don't look that comfortable. It seems to me you are falling off the bed and your headboard is a wall heater.
Not jealous.

Dear Urchin Pouf,
You never cease to amaze me. I have looked at your picture about 10 times today and I still want you. Not only are you skillfully crafted with huge needles(I'm talking the size of lie) you also look like a hat I own. I will be seeing you very soon because I plan on purchasing you. Don't worry my couch and chair are very nice to newcomers. Welcome home!
Your new bum owner.

Raining cats and dogs?

WE have all been on an airplane where we wish we were sitting next to someone else or wish the person in you aisle wouldn't have brought their lovely pet that seems to be staring at you. Well now flying can be much easier for everyone. If you didn't think it would ever happen, guess again. A new airline launching next week,Pet Airways,is a flight strictly for animals,besides the flight crew of course.

There will be weekly routes between L.A., Denver, Chicago, Baltimore, and NYC. Pawsengers (dogs and cats right now; reptiles, birds, pigs, and more to come) get the VIP treatment in the cabin.
Before boarding, pets can relax in an airport lounge just for them. They get a bathroom break prior to flight, and an attendant checks in with them every fifteen minutes during their journey.
Can I have that job?! I checked online and it is a bit pricey with a one-way flight starting at $149...but if you love you pets as much as I do you will gladly let them ride in comfort and style.

They already thank you :)

Ladies and gentleman..Mister Robert Frost

Robert Frost

We make ourselves a place apart
Behind light words that tease and flout,
But oh, the agitated heart
Till someone find us really out.

'Tis pity if the case require
(Or so we say) that in the end
We speak the literal to inspire
The understanding of a friend.

But so with all, from babes that play
At hide-and-seek to God afar,
So all who hide too well away
Must speak and tell us where they are.

Cheers and cupcakes!

The one obsession in my existence thus far is sugar! I could, grossly, eat a spoonful everyday...and yes i have! As a little girl I used to sneak one every afternoon when I would get home from school(this might explain why it was so hard to get up in the morning). So I thought why not celebrate the lovely 4th of July with a simple cupcake recipe! Its easy, which is the most important because I CAN NOT COOK!!! Well there are a few specialties I have. OTHERWISE I CAN NOT COOK!

Hope everyone has radical weekend and maybe some cupcakes :)CHEERS
