Temptation from the devil himself…

Carmelita Bars at Whole Foods…conveniently placed right by the salad bar. I was strong and resisted, but I can’t wait for my Paleo challenge to be over because I am going to enjoy one of these!

Things my kids will miss out on…

April 19, 2010

Just looking at this makes me want to take a shower.  It’s a breeding ground for hepatitis.  As a kid it is probably something I would have loved.  As an adult I think it’s disgusting.  Sorry to my future children.

Confused and Conflicted

April 19, 2010

I’ve been back in SLC for 9 months now and it has surprisingly been great.  One of the big reasons I came back to SLC was to be able to take the time to figure out what’s next in life for me.  For the past 8 years fashion has been a major part of my life.  I love it.  I get it.  I truly believe I could go far in this industry.  However, in this economy it has become increasingly difficult to progress or even really get my career started in the fashion industry, which has led me to mentally explore other areas of interest. Cooking.  If we’re friends on Facebook than you have seen for the past 9 months I have been cooking a lot and have been having a lot of fun with it.  Today in the mail I received a packet of information and an application to The Culinary Institute of America.  A beautiful school located in the Hudson River Valley of New York.

Now here in lies the confusion and conflict.

-Have I really given myself time to explore a job in fashion? Is it really just timing and the economy or is it not meant to be?

-What if I get accepted to CIA and take out loans and go through the program and decide that’s not what I want to do either?  Then I have wasted a couple of years and I’m in debt.

-What if it turns out to be the perfect opportunity?

AHHHHHHH….too many what if’s.  I just can’t decide.  Thankfully I am in no rush to finish the application and can take more time to think.  Input is welcome to help me rationalize my conflicts and confusion!

Why do I torture myself?

April 18, 2010

Nothing beats a Sunday morning on the couch surfing the channels watching tv shows and movies.  Today so far I have watched Life on Discovery, Can’t Buy Me Love, E! News, 16 and Pregnant(what a depressing show), and now, The Best Thing I Ever Ate on Food Network.

Now most people know that I am a food lover and a lover of the Food Network.  I watch it constantly.  It serves as great inspiration for future meals, but The Best Thing I Ever Ate is just plain torturous! If you’ve never seen it, every episode has a different theme; The Best Thing I Ever Ate Pizza, Classics, With My Hands, Cheese(this was the most painful to watch), and for every theme they have chefs and hosts of their shows on to talk about their favorites.

I mean ok, in reality it’s a fun show to watch.  It just makes me want to hop in the car and go to the nearest restaurant to have something similar to what they are having.  Thankfully I have self control….sometimes.

Another Blog….

April 18, 2010

How long will this one last?  Will it be any good?  Can I stay motivated?  We shall find out!

One of the things I am going to do differently with this blog is I am going to expand my horizons beyond fashion and style and delve into other areas of interest such as food and cooking, travel, television, and life.  While I’m sure 50% of the blog will still be about fashion and style, I feel like to keep me interested and potential readers interested I should write about other areas.

Enjoy and comment when moved!

WORD OF WARNING:  One of the things that has always interested me most about blogs is that they kind of feel like an online diary, although you will never read that I thought Johnny was so cute at the sock hop.  That being said, I am not trying to win any awards with my grammar, spelling, or punctuation.  Often times posts will be written from my iPhone in haste and with little care to the correctness of things.  So to all of you grammar, spelling, and punctuation snobs, MOTHER THATS YOU, back off.
