Everyone is on edge about Hurricane Irene hitting the east coast. Let me just say I woke up this morning to slight chest pains, which might have something to do with my anxiety about it all. Well let's hope I'm not passing off what could be a possible heart attack for my extreme uneasiness about Ms. Irene approaching.
Since we can't do anything about Irene's big arrival into town, I suggest we all just take heed to all the warnings, prepare ourselves the best way we can and stock up on ice cream and snacks! Oh, and don't forget the other important things like water, batteries, candles, non-perishables, first-aid products --you know, stuff like that.
While Irene holds us hostage this weekend, let's take the time to reflect on our lives, tackle our to-do lists and plan for the future.
Stay safe people!
This time of the year screams BACK-TO-SCHOOL SHOPPING! Although it's been some years since I've bombarded my mom with a list of my so-called "must-haves" for school, the love and nostalgia of it all still lingers. I miss the days of getting excited about going back to school with a new wardrobe. *sigh* Even though I am no longer subconsciously showing off my new wears in the hallway right before homeroom, I still mentally compose my "back-to-school" list as a working adult. This year it would look a little like this...
You meet a cool guy. You end up liking the guy. The guy in return likes you back. You start dating. You both agree to become exclusive. Things are becoming serious. What's next? It might just be time to meet his parents. He's ready to bring you home to mom.
For some this is easy, but for others this might ignite a serious bout with anxiety like myself. Well, what can you do? You really like this guy so you do your woosahs, breathe deep and make sure you look every part of the Fab Chick that you know you are in order to make a great first impression. After all, you don't want his mom saying, "Lawd, what kinda of jezebel did my son bring home?"
Why not add a little cherry red hot-ness to a super cool look this summer? And a cool way to incorporate the color of great emotion is with cute accessories. Since red is a color of intensity, it's a perfect hue to take a simple and plain look up a notch from plain Jane to severely FAB CHICK APPROVED.
I seriously can’t believe it’s August 1st already! In just four months many of you will be wishing for a white Christmas. As if we didn't get enough snow last winter. Ugh! I could really do without seeing another snowflake in my lifetime. Summer don't leave me!! But while everyone is starting to prepare their minds and wardrobes for fall, I shall take the remainder of the 54 days left in this season to continue to have a BLAST, THE FAB CHICK way!
In the meantime, get into Dee-Lite's Picnic In The Summertime. It's a cool track to add to a chill summer BBQ play list. It's reminding me that I have yet to pack a picnic basket for a quaint picnic in the park, definitely on my summer to-do list.
