Where has the time gone?....

These past couple of weeks have flown by....my trip to Chicago (ultra amazing) more on this later, Christmas and now New Year's is on Saturday?!

 Do you do resolutions? I have done resolutions before but they don't pan out for me. It's not that they are dumb or don't work but I am convinced that because resolutions seem like a chore, they are kinda tossed aside in my brain as another thing I have to do! So, as opposed to trying to make myself do things, I have decided on something different for this upcoming year..... my 2011 Bucket List.

Now, I know what you are thinking...aren't bucket lists for things you want to do before you die? I guess traditionally they are but, why not mix it up a little? It's like a To-Do list with a twist because for me it seems more fun and less stressful....some items will have deadlines while others are just things I want to do next year. My brain tends to rebel against deadlines...I still complete things on time but I hate having stringent time frames especially for things I might actually enjoy doing! Hence, my 2011 Bucket list is being birthed! If I don't do everything, will I feel like a horrible person...no because I am not pressuring myself!!!!

I plan to make it a fun and interesting New Year with a larger focus on self. Becoming less available to energy vampires in my life and focusing on my ideas for the launch of my business....yep, I'm stepping out and jumping in...it's truly about time!

What are your plans for next year?

Addicted to Shoes...I smell a sale...

Good Morning! So while I am not in the market not going to purchase any new shoes, I found out that Nine West is having their Friends and Family Event today! 30% off your entire purchase...even sale merchandise...I know, I thought the same thing! Oh and shipping is $5.00...I know, I know, insane, right?!

I am drooling over the boots and pumps...you know me, I like 'em sky high....the sale is bananas! Check it out!

I think I have rage issues...like have you ever been so upset you could punch a wall? I let things compound in my being and then I just explode...what is wrong with me?

I want to be angry, not enraged....

What's Happenin'?

I asked myself the same thing! I have allowed myself to be swallowed up into my job...I am so not excited about that! This is my outlet...my breath of fresh air...my blog! Nothing should keep me from doing this, right!? I mean I have a life...family, homies and all of that but I started this because I love talking about what I think is noteworthy or funny or whatever!

I am not going to let my space in the blogosphere become an ancient piece that people stumble across when they hit "Next Blog"! This is my world and I am going to do my best to write everyday...even if I just have to write Hi!

On that note, today is the first day of the rest of my life....I have begun anew. As Fergie would say, I'm G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S! My brain has been buzzing over how to improve upon my little space and I have a lot planned....giveaways, interviews, guest bloggers.....the works! I want to create what I feel, I love my opinion but I want to interact and connect with other bloggers!!! Ahhhhh! *Smacks self* Okay, I am better...I needed to get that out!

So anywho, In my quest to get back into the blog world, I happened upon a wonderful blog called Living Fly On A Dime. I immediately fell in love! She loves life and keeps you on your toes with her thirty finds and dining! In September on her blogaversary, she started Thrifty Threads 365 - "a year long endeavor where I will not purchase any new clothing or accessories. I can only buy second-hand items from thrift stores or flea markets. The only new goods I can purchase are underwear and  I can utilize gift cards that have been given to me (via promotional items, presents, etc)".  How awesome is that???

Soooo, I was thinking....although I have only ever donated to my local Goodwill and Salvation Army locations...maybe I should give it a shot? What do I have to lose....I mean I do love a nice new pair of shoes....Macy's always has a sale *swoon* but why not begin with a self-challenge? Am I fly enough to do this?  *Pulls up big girl Tahari pants*, of course I am!!! My plan: Since I have never thrift shopped before, I plan to do it like I was going to eat an elephant, you know one bite at a time or rather one month at a time for six months. If I survive for the first six months....I will continue on for the last six months!

My official start date will be December 13th because I have a trip to Chicago....so anybody wanna join me?
