Summer Magic Skin

Summer Magic Skin 1

For Summer Wizards,

Because I let you in on the secret once…

So why not go all the way!!!

A while back you may remember that I disclosed my love of wizardry… and if not, well it is probably better that way. Read it or the short of it is I like wizards, specifically wizards who work with potions. I Hermione my ass together a variety of products as potions. Always have. Always will. Again, do with that what you will. As it was brought to my attention through various facebook posts (this gives you an idea of who some of my friends on FB are…) that Harry Potter, the wizard of all wizards, turns 33 today, I felt it only appropriate to put up a summer magic tricks volume two for what is now probably a sunburned dad of a wizard.

The Same Ole Story

Chuck and BlaireFor my Beach Bitches,

Because Athena & Nayla are super summer fun…

So get the weekend party started!!!

It’s the same story over and over again. The outsider looking in… Romeo was a Montague and longed to be a Capulet. He Literally died to be part of their world for the love of his life. Nick was always wandering around tying to convince the world he belonged at the grand Gatsby parties. Dan Humphrey was so in love with the lives of privilege and wealth that when he knew he could never truly be a part of it he wrote himself into their story… Holden Caulifield didn’t realize how much he wanted to be part of their world until he was gone. He warns readers that telling others about your own experiences will lead to miss the people who shared them.

It’s F*&%ing Hot!

heat wave
For the love of Summer,
Because this isn’t funny…
So don’t laugh!
It’s F’ing Hot! And not like The Simple Life “That’s Hot,” like you walk one block down the street with wet hair and it’s completely dry hot. This week started with a relaxing day on Sunday at the beach and was followed up on Monday by an even more relaxing evening at Central Park listening to the NY Philharmonic. I felt great and didn’t want the relaxation to end… between work, life, and a city that is tense by default how do you find a way to relax and stay calm?

Amanda’s Absolutes

For a little certainty,
Because nothing in life is a sure bet…
So here are my absolutes this week!!!
 
Remember that time I said I was starting a new series on the blog with product reviews… And then proceeded to never post another straight up product review ever again… (I mean, I give my opinion on products but to call this a review might be a stretch, no?)
Here’s hoping for change… So, without further ado I am starting a new series on the blog today…
 
Amanda’s Absolutes. Why? Because it is high time we got to know each other a little better. Each week (or so…) I plan to post what has kept me enjoying life. Here it goes…

Another Bug Bites the Dust

Stars and Stripes in the Desert
For Rebecca,
Because blood is sweet, 
So don’t feed the animals!
Once upon a 4th of July, on a hot, steamy and humid day mosquitoes and bugs flourished over the long forgotten barbecues of summers past. A short time before the holiday weekend and the same day I heard a repulsive story about eating cicadas on NPR this landed on my g-chat – “I have a behind the mirror challenge for you…” to which I replied “Bring It!” naturally…
“Bug Bites…like the best possible solution to reduce swelling and to avoid them without using jungle type bug spray!!! I mean…I use this Johnson & Johnson baby oil that has bug repellent in it, I’ve also had to wear the bracelets because apparently bugs love my blood… wearing a bracelet that is bug repellent ain’t exactly HOT.”
