Blog Appreciation Week, Day 4: Chocolates and Raspberries

I have a love-hate relationship with fashion: I love a put-together, fun look that’s not too out there, but I don’t really have a great eye for fashion myself, nor do I have the patience (that’s the hate part) or $$ for shopping for fancy fashionable stuff. And some of that really out there fashion annoys the heck out of me, you know, like crazy spacesuit-looking stuff that somehow costs thousands of dollars. But I love this “fashion for the close-enough-to-everyday-woman” blog, Chocolates and Raspberries, that I stumbled across. I still don’t have the kind of money this blogger has to spend on clothes and accessories, but on the other hand, it’s her hobby, and she is still always on the lookout for bargains. Plus, you can love and be inspired by her look without having to copy it exactly. So if fashion that is attainable for the everyday person is your thing, click on the pic below to check out her blog! I notice it hasn’t been updated in about a month, but I think she’s just on vacay and will be back.

Hot Air Balloons!

Posted on

Just getting back from that long weekend, during which time I went to this cool hot air balloon festival in NJ. Though I’d post a picture from there cuz I dunno, it felt pretty magical seeing all those hot air balloons taking to the sky at once, and thought maybe you’d get a little smile too :).

True Story: My Sister and I LOVED Richard Dawson

Posted on

Richard Dawson passed away this weekend, and Buzzfeed compiled a list of 8 Reasons Why Richard Dawson Was Cooler Than You’ll Ever Be. I mean, I like you and all, but he probably is, sorry to say it ;). My sister and I used to LOVE him. We watched him on old reruns of Family Feud and Match Game. The clip above is from Match Game, because he always had the right answer. Makes sense that he would then go on to host Family Feud, a survey of popular answers. I loved those game shows, and he was just so pleasant and funny. My sister even wrote and got his autograph :P. Did I mention we are both in our twenties? Richard Dawson is timeless, and I hope he rests in peace and laughter.

Good luck!

Found a four-leaf clover and took a picture of 2 of the reasons I’m lucky 🙂

That Sh*t Cray: The Preeminent Minds of Our Day

Posted on

LOLZ, Becca Frucht from compiled this hilarious list of quotes, and you have to determine if they were spoken by a) Kanye West or b) Newt Gingrinch. Ready to guess which brilliant mind came up with what? Here we go:

1. “There’s a large part of me that’s four years old. I wake up in the morning and I know that somewhere there’s a cookie. I don’t know where it is but I know it’s mine and I have to go find it. That’s how I live my life. My life is amazingly filled with fun.”

2. “I believe in myself like a five-year-old believes in himself. They say look at me, look at me! Then they do a flip in the backyard. It won’t even be that amazing, but everyone will be clapping for them.”

3. “I will spark a generation of thinkers who will question traditional thought until they find the absolute truth.”

4. “I have enormous personal ambition. I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”

5. “It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”

6. “I’m going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not.”

7.“Primary mission, Advocate of civilization, Definer of civilization, Teacher of the rules of civilization, Leader of the civilizing forces.”

8. “I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation. Of this decade, I will be the loudest voice.”

9. “A mere 40 years ago, beach volleyball was just beginning. No bureaucrat would have invented it, and that’s what freedom is all about.”

10. “She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.” (Referring to an ex.)

11. “I’m like a tree. I feed the branches of the people.”

12. “I’m like a machine. I’m a robot. You cannot offend a robot.”

Answers are here. No matter how many you got right, we all win.

A Guy Who’ll Keep Her Entertained Through Good Times and Bad

I love that he– and all his friends– are willing and excited to do this, even after she’s already said “I do” :).

UPDATE: Guess the first version I posted got taken down, but I just added in another!

Officially Liking Things Since October 15, 2011!

I like a lot of things, many of which are easily accessible via the world wide interwebs :). The aim of this blog is to share little nuggets to bring joy or provoke thought or conversation. It’ll be simple, just an image or gif or article or link. And yes, I foresee myself sharing a lot from my same few favorite sites, these include dlisted, The Superficial, stumbleupon, and msnbc. I can’t help it that they get a consistent A+ in advanced awesomeness! Sometimes I’ll post my own thoughts or pictures too (I am a verrry novice-level photography hobbyist). So that’s the blog, we’ll see how it goes.
