Hint And You Shall Receive

When it comes to gifts, and receiving gifts from my husband, we have decided on a really great system: I tell him what I want and he goes out and gets it. Sometimes, I'll even go out and get it because how does a guy who wears only skinny jeans and tshirts know where to find Maison Martin Margiela duster rings? He doesn't know. What he does know is where to find wireless speakers. And that's what happened to me our first Christmas together before our "system". Lets be honest, I need Big Blue Live speakers like I need a space suit and I am no astronaut. After that, there was no way I was going to let wireless speakers happen to me again. Sure, I'll never get the rush of opening a surprise gift, but trust me, I'm definitely not complaining about it, because I'm too busy hanging out in my Margiela rings and Rodarte necklaces. Which is really what counts anyways--the fact that I got the stuff, I mean the thought...and the stuff. 

***Cuyana has made it even more easy to get what you want by having the great idea of "hinting" cards. You can look like you're not totally being rude asking for a present, by asking for a present via the hinting cards. So, put in what you want in the card and then slip it to your loved one and then a pretty orange box with your Cuyana goodies will arrives. Why have 4,568 candles, coffee mugs, or socks when you can have one amazing alpaca wool cape? Check out their site for more chic gift ideas!

What You Wear To Meet Will.i.am

If you're going to potentially meet Will.i.am, you should most definitely wear some badass accessories, because there is a definite chance that when you meet him, you will become "cuff buddies" with him and then he'll tell you that you "look like a fashion blogger". Thanks Will. I can't really say more right now because I'm really busy putting on my huge red badge of cool that he gave me. 

Also, check out his new smart cuff (#notawatch) called Puls that will be available around December. You can see how it looks on the man himself at the bottom of the page...with me his new "cuff buddy".

Concert Etiquette

I was at a Bruno Mars concert last night that was amazing. That little guy can sang! He's also the tiniest little hottie ever. When he was singing some Ginuwine, I just wanted to put him in my pocket like a little pocket vibrator that sings My Pony. Bruno aside however, I was shocked to discover that there were concert goers that did not quite understand concert etiquette. For one, you don't block a thirty-something cougar from rushing her way to the front. Second, if you're standing on the floor, don't turn around looking at me with disgust because you got pushed a little bit. Hello, you're at the front, did you think that you were entitled to standing there just because you're standing there? Move over bitch! If you don't want to get pushed, go stand in the back with the other losers. If you're in the front, dig your heels in and stake your claim to see your man! Third, don't get annoyed when the Asian chick behind you starts screaming "I want to bite your toosh Bruno Mars" Last time I checked, we were at a concert, not the library, so put your stink-eye away. So, in total, if you're going to be at a concert, standing at the front, you better be annoyingly fun, because you being normal is actually what is the most annoying.

If you haven't noticed already, I love very simple outfits. Most of the time, my outfits consist of only about 3 pieces. Layering is cute and I love how all kinds of different textures can be mixed together and blah blah blah. But sometimes, now correct me if I'm wrong, but sometimes, while trying to put together a layering look you end up looking like the little brother from A Christmas Story running down the street like a giant heap of walking laundry. I happen to know, that heap of walking laundry was me this morning before I took off like two layers. What's left was an LBD and some sneakers.
