What Do You Want To Know?

1 Comment

A friend of mine recently asked me her opinion on a  subject related to boys. With her permission, I decided to answer her question on this blog, because I know that other people wonder the same thing.

There’s this guy who I like. We’ve spent the night together several times, but all we did was sleep. I know that he has feelings for me. His friends all say so, and I can just tell from the way he acts around me. He’s had plenty of chances to make a move, especially when we’ve been drinking, because I always get touchy-feely. Why hasn’t he done anything yet? Not even a kiss???

In my opinion, I think that he is just taking things slowly. Either he’s doing it on your behalf, or maybe he had some relationship issues in the past that might be affecting him now. While most guys would definitely take advantage of a flirty, tipsy, beautiful girl, this one seems different. I think that he doesn’t want to make a mistake with you and have you think of him as just another drunken hookup. It sounds like he has real feelings for you and doesn’t want to screw it up.

My advice? Next time you’re laying in bed, lean over and kiss him on the cheek goodnight. Maybe that will be the encouragement that he needs to progress things along.

Followup: I heard from my friend that he did finally make a move, and it was true – his last serious girlfriend had cheated on him, so he was a little nervous. But once he made a move… it was great. 😉

I hoped I helped!

Press-On… Press-Off… Press-On Nails

1 Comment

I’m a nail virgin. At least, press-on nail. I’ve never had the reason to every try them before. I played sports, I was a bit of a tomboy, press-on nails weren’t really me. But every time I walked in Target or CVS, I would see the little neat packages sitting there, waiting for me.

I may have been watching too much trashy television or something this week because when I went in to Target yesterday, I just couldn’t help myself. Maybe I just wanted to hide my short nails (I sometimes bite them).

Nope, not me.

It’s been 24 hours since I first put on my nails, so I thought I would take a second to evaluate how that time has gone.

+ I love how crisp and professional they make my nails look
+ They make me feel so girly and sexy
+ They were cheaper than a real manicure, and more convenient with my schedule

I had to remove two nails in order for me to be able to take out my contacts (ouch)
It was a bit hard to get used to typing on my keyboard at first
They looked a bit fake, so I filed them down some to make them look normal.

I kind of want to take my nails out one night this week, just to see if the way that they feel can translate into how I act as a person. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. In my mind, if you look sexy and feel sexy in your own skin, other people will notice and respect you more. I know that next time I use press-ons, I’ll go with the short ones!

Do you use press-ons?

Outfit of the Week: Snow Bunny


I was reluctant to do another post so soon, but when I looked out my window and saw the massive amount of snow, I just couldn’t help myself. I’ve been playing on [polyvore] for a while, but now realized that it was the perfect outlet to create the perfect snow day outfit for any hip snow bunny. Nothing looks more perfect in the snow than a girl standing there, snowflakes gently gathering in her hair and on the tips of her eyelashes.

Go outside, play in the snow with your honey. Then you can come back into the warm house, strip off a few layers, then curl up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa (you may or may not add peppermint schnapps, I won’t tell). If you have a fire place to set this cozy mood, now is the perfect time to use it. If not? Pop in a DVD and enjoy the day!

Don’t forget to throw a few snowballs and make a few snow angels though!

Hooking Up Essential: Overnight Bag


We’ve all had it happen. We go over to a guy’s house, ultimately end up hooking up, falling asleep (either naked or in an uncomfortable pair of pants/skirt), then wake up in the morning looking, and feeling, like a hot mess. Throw in the walk/drive of shame and what turned into a great night might make us feel miserable. What we need is something that will make us look and feel great on the outside. What we need is a well-stocked overnight bag. Stock it with travel-sized items to keep it from getting big and bulky.

When you’re picking out your overnight bag, make sure to choose something that it more in the style of a big purse, not a duffel bag. That way you can easily carry it inside your date’s house without having him starting to worry right away that you’re spending the night. This also works great if you’re heading over to a friend’s house for some TV and end up getting too drunk on wine to drive home.

This Louis Vuitton Aquarelle bag is great size wise, but look for something much cheaper, and without the lizard skin handles – please.

Here are the basics every good overnight bag should have:

  • Cute PJ Pants (Pants, not shorts, just in case your legs get a little prickly. This are usually whipped out after you’ve slept with a guy a few times – that way he doesn’t think that meant to sleep with him all along.)
  • Condoms (NEVER rely on a guy to provide condoms. Even if you’re on birth control, don’t have sex without a condom. While condoms don’t eliminate all risks of catching an STD, it is a step in the right direction. But you shouldn’t really be having sex with someone without knowing their past history in the first place.)
  • Toothbrush or mouthwash (Preferably both. Most people feel refreshed just having a clean mouth. You can use the Colgate Wisp – the one time use toothbrush with the bead of toothpaste, but I like more toothpaste on my brush than that. It didn’t feel like my mouth was getting clean.)
  • Deodorant (It doesn’t have to be your regular kind, unless you can find it in a mini-size. Just anything that will keep you smelling nice.)
  • Aspirin (For those morning after headaches)
  • Flip Flops (Can be kept in the car. You can buy an inexpensive pair from Old Navy, just to save your feet another day of wearing 4-inch high heels.)
  • Hairbrush + Hair Tie (You can get one of those tiny ones that fold up. Just throw your hair back into a ponytail and you’re good to go!)
  • Make-up (Just mascara and lip-gloss will do. Just something to freshen you up in the morning.)
  • Make-up Remover Wipes (So you don’t wake up with those horrible raccoon eyes. So gross. You should always remove your make-up before going to bed, even if you aren’t hooking up. It keeps your skin nice.)
  • Contact Case w/ Solution (Vera Bradley recently came out with a travel contact case kit. It includes a little container to poor some contact solution in. Something like this is a great invest to just keep in your car if your eyes start to ever bother you)
  • Granola Bar (Just in case you get hungry.)

Question: Do you have an overnight bag? What essentials do you keep in yours?
