it tastes like candy

I have made one of the most exciting discoveries known to man.

No kidding. No fooling. This shit is for serious.

It is akin to drinking the nectar of the gods. No, I have no frame of reference to what it tastes like but I can imagine it tastes damn good.

Like drinking honey. But under the guise of wellness.

This product will solve all the worlds problems, I’m sure of it. Especially when you just drink it from the bottle. Because that’s what I’ve been doing.

So the next time you have a cough do not reach for that nasty Robitussin or whatever, get this stuff. Plus, it’s in a glass bottle. We all know how I feel about plastic.

Also, I would like to thank everyone who has been emailing, tweeting and commenting wishing me well on the new gig. It is going tremendously and I love every minute. Especially my coworkers.

concert time

Last night my boyfriend and I saw Foster the People in Central Park. Yes, it was awesome. Also, I’m pretty sure that aside from the children, I was the only sober person at the concert. That is, assuming the children hadn’t been drinking.  Even I know that when you’re sick you shouldn’t drink.

I was going to bring my real camera but I thought that crowds + possible rain + camera = bad combination. So you’ll just need to excuse the amazing quality of my iPhone photos.

You see that sky? Yea…it didn’t end well.

With about 15 minutes left of the concert, the sky started to fall in the form of giant rain drops. And it didn’t stop. So we walked the 13 blocks home in the pouring rain. I am so glad I wore the shoes that I did and I was very bitter that I didn’t bring an umbrella. We definitely got some strange looks on 5th Ave, that is for sure.

I had an “after the rain outfit post” but I think I’ll save that for a rainy day. No pun intended. Or was it?

sick in the city

First of all, I would like to thank a moment to remember all of the fallen soldiers who have so bravely fought for our country. Secondly, I would like to take this opportunity to correct all of you morons who think Memorial Day is for those who are currently serving. Figure it out. Thank you.

My mother got me sick and I’m pissed off about it. I’ve spent my entire weekend in doors, alone. Not a winning combination since I am very accustomed to being taken care of. So minus the coughing till nearly passing out and nose blowing, this weekend has been tremendous. I’ve watched a lot of crappy TV, on Netflix of course.

Also, today I’m over making jokes about marriage and such on Lara’s blog since she’s on her honeymoon. You don’t want to miss it!

five things with fashion truffles

Hi there C.H.ers! Viv here from the fashion and style blog, Fashion Truffles. I was so happy when Christin asked me to stop by and share 5 things of myself with all you lovely people. I think I got some good ones, but I’ll let you all be the judge of that…

1. I have finger toes. No joke. My toes are super skinny and super long so my friends have always made fun of me. You want proof? Check out their awesomeness in the picture below.

2. I’m extremely clumsy. It’s almost sad. I fall and/or bump into something almost on a daily basis. It gets old…
3. I can’t whistle. Many people have tried to teach me and all that comes out is spit. I know, it’s sad. So for all you whistlers out there, go ahead, show off.
4. I had a thing with lifting my skirt and showing my undies to complete strangers when I was a little girl. My mom would try to explain that those were my “private areas” and I shouldn’t be doing that, but I just didn’t want to listen. I would run up to strangers, lift my skirt, and then run away. I was an interesting young lady.
5. English is my second language. Some of you might have already known that, but what you don’t know is my tendency to not get common American idioms quite right.  For example, I would always say “I’d like to be a mosquito on the wall when…” until Kenny finally was nice enough to tell me that I don’t want to be a mosquito, I want to be a fly. Same thing, no?!

A big thanks to Christin for having me over today!


Thank you so much for sharing, Viv! I have a SERIOUS issue with stationary objects jumping out at me all the time and I can’t whistle for crap. Quite problematic in my family since we have a family whistle. Yes. More on that later. Make sure you stop by Fashion Truffles and show Viv some love today!
