Oh, Pretty Lady

Last week, during my visit to Manhattan, I felt like I had exited reality and set up shop on the other side of hell. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday brought with them not only a sea of beautiful sights, sounds, smells and experiences, but they also hauled in humidity the likes of which I had never seen before. I feltΒ moistΒ (I hate that word, it even sounds gross) all of the damn time, my hair looked like shit (even though I was trying to use my magical curling deviceΒ – not even it could do its magic in the face of the humidity!), my face was soaked constantly…I’m embarrassed just thinking of it. 😦 I was walking down the street at one point, thanking god that nobody I knew was with me, as I was pretty sure that I had sweated so much that I smelled bad, too. Such a sexpot, I know. 😦

Me playing the lead role of ‘Sweaty Betty’ in the New York production of “Holy Shit! It’s Humid” – now playing in Smell-o-Vision! πŸ˜‰

I was looking into the faces of all those I met on the street (except for the shirtless guy in the plaid boxers and the sumo diaper, wearing a plastic samurai sword strapped across his chest – I’m not even kidding – who decided that I was IT in his world and proceeded to follow me…no damn way was I making eye contact there! Hell no!), and I noticed, thankfully, that there were a lot of other Sweaty Betty’s out there. Whew! I’m not the only one! However, I did notice that somehow, these people who live there and are probably more accustomed to humidity like that than I am, seemed to be coping with it better, and their faces weren’t so shiny that they could be seen from the sun. I wonder what their trick is! πŸ™‚
What makes you feel beautiful? Is it in your clothes, makeup? Great shoes? There are times that I put something on and think I may have a hint of the sexy beast about me – but it doesn’t happen often. Instead, I think that I feel prettiest when my Wee One looks at me with love in her eyes and tells me that she thinks I’m beautiful, even when I wake up and have bed head…that’s awesome. πŸ™‚ Occasionally, a man will pay me a sincere compliment and it makes me feel like magic – I wish that happened more often. Finally, there is the odd time that I will glance at myself in the mirror on my way out the door and Β  kinda sorta think that maybe I did okay with my very limited resources and I’m not too hideous. That doesn’t happen very often, but…it’s pretty great when it does. πŸ™‚ What does it for you, my beauties? πŸ™‚

While on one of my many shopping voyages last week, I stopped in at a Kate Spade store. I heart Kate Spade everything like you wouldn’t believe, but the latest collection is knocking my socks off! Here are a few of the things that I am currently coveting (including one that I am ordering online today):


Apple of my Eye Ring!
Donut Bangle
I heart pink purses!!
I usually don’t wear flats, but these are kind of it, don’t you think? πŸ™‚
A popcorn purse!! Love!!!
Popsicle necklace πŸ™‚


Aren’t they just the best???! Kate Spade things fill me with so much happiness and joy – and, I don’t know about you, but I can never have too much joy! πŸ˜‰ Any guesses on which of the above items I ordered for myself this morning????!! πŸ™‚


Now…if only I could afford all of these things!! Time to go looking for the money tree. πŸ˜‰
