me + Mally Roncal + Henri Bendel's in NYC?? to be or not to be?

so...here's the story:
my favorite makeup-artist is Mally Roncal.
[you might have seen her on the Rachel Ray Show a few times]
[shown below]
i made an appointment for my bitt & i to get the makes done by her people on Wednesday, November 3rd because...she will be in the house!
**
so exciting...I'd get to meet her!
**
however,
my sister has sham-college lab class,
she doesn't want to come,
and I don't want to go solo...
...
...
...
...
...
...but should I??
*
*
*
*
*
I really want to go, and
finally get to purchase some of her totally awesome makes!
*
*
*
*
it would be an adventure,
if nothing else,
GPSing my way through the streets of NY,
getting a make-over for no reason,
getting to meet Miss Mally herself!
*
*
*
*
*
i keep thinking:
save it for a better time
when thesis papers aren't due,
when you have luxury time to travel into the city,
and luxury money to spend on things such as make-up...
*
*
*
*
then i think:
yo, girl!
your *2010* is HERE!
...and it's
almost up!
Your birthday's right around the corner,
treat yo'self, homie!
*
*
*
*
*
what's your opinion on the matter?
should i cancel the appointment?
OR
go solo?
:)

*two-headed*kitty*cat*

j/k.
****
saturday the *babies* turned
6 months old.
to celebrate their half-birthday,
we bought them new outdoor gear.
***
***
i was surprised at how cautious they were.
little weary wanders...
...at first.
***
my dainty little girl,
in her fiery red outdoor gear:
***
***
my rough rider - 'Mr. Fats' Alejandro - in his
big-boy blue outdoor harness:
[he's such a tonka truck]
***
***
this was the first time since i plucked them from that very
spot in June that they had been back in that corner of the yard.
[i wonder what they were experiencing]
***
***
my 'binos!

***

hope your weekend was filled with exploring new territory, too.

my brain no-worky.

i hate when that happens.
*
*
*
to counteract the intense hatred i feel for
my checked-out brain when homework is to be done,
i will post about something
i intensely love & adore:
sesame seeds on my pizza crust.
*
i went with my dad the other day for lunch
[and i never do anything with him]
*
the sesame seeds were abundant and plentiful.
*
they were on the crust of my peppers & onion slice.
*
Joey's in Maspeth, Queens
does it oh so right.
[i like the figurines in the upstairs window]
*

yum.

enjoy your Thurs., cosmonauts

work, brain, work. Plllleeeeease function, brain? {{deeeep sigh}} whatever.

when one's brain is on heroi...i mean, sham-college, one needs to DeSTReSS...

good Wednes morning, ya'll.
*
remember this commercial?
while watching, please replace the word "heroin" with "sham-college" and you'll get an idea of what i was talking about in yesterday's post.
*
**
***
****
***
**
*
anyway,
when my brain's in burnout-sham-college mode,
i destress by...
yeah.
cutting & pasting & makin' little polka-dots with my sharpies.
{{giggity giggity!!}}
yesterday's collage showed...who's that?...selita ebanks?...
...in a simple & chic grey number with black *tights* [i wuff tights],
wrist bling, hoops & a pulled-back ponytail.
[obtained that pic from here]
*
**
***
it also showed
the boots that i was trying to get for myself
over the world wide web
after seeing Miss Maegan "my inspiration" Tintari rockin' 'em to the umpteenth power
in this post from the other day.
so prits so prits so prits.
[ i actually found a pair in NineWest that is so uber similar, a lot cheaper, & fit perfectly, so yes.
i bought and i happy]
*
**
***
i thought they'd make a nice match:
pair 'em up!
***
maybe with a chunky black sweater...i wuff chunky sweaters...
*
**
***
birthday's in less than three weeks,
but I'm not doing anything KRAY-SAY, OH-KAE, MAYNE??
birthday tues, celebrate day sat.
*
that be the plan, Stan.

...and enjoy your day.

one*useless*noggin

my.
brain.
is.
fried.
it. won't. work. for. me.
*
i need it,
and
it's abandoned its duties.
*
does anyone know the magic word
to knock it out of its comatose state?
i need to create a questionnaire
to give to teachers
about poetry and it's function in their classroom.
*
GOD!
why am I at such a brick wall here??!!
*
**
***
****
*****
****
***
**
*
oh yeah.
i got
*kitten brain*
probably 'cause i just love my 'binos.
[they're my BAMbinos
((Italian word for "babies"))
so I call them my 'binos]

have a poppin' Tues, chicklets.

P.S. -- OMFG!!! Please visit nataliedee.com to see her post today. [It's even titled "fresh new brain"] Total spontaneous synchronicity on her and my part!

...so weird when the universe does that...

...of all the things i could of posted about today...

*new*

one word post title. new.
i chose it
for a number of reasons,
most below.
some not below.
read on,
then i'd love love love -really & trules- to hear
what's been/what's going to be
new with you.
*

first,
as said in my last post,
i got a new haircut.
it looks nothing like the hair above, as i was too chicken shit
to go for the bangs, but it is a trimmed version of the way-too-long long-ass layers i was shaggily rockin' for a minute and a half.
**
Ryan, the h'cutter,
did give me some new face-framin' pieces.
[as i type now, the pieces are in my peripheral, and i kinda like it]
*
**
***
****
*****

**
*
i also am on the hunt for new knee socks.
the cute kind that i see peeking out from under a tall boot
like here and here and here.
*
**
***
****
*****

***
**
*
i've also been ready for a new cell, and i believe
the lucky winner of that honor is the iPhone 4.
*
howevs,
i want it in white.
*
the boyf & i
are about ready to cave, though.
fuck it. once we go black, we'll never go back
...to another phone???
iPhone4...R U the 1?

after getting my hair cut on friday,
i discovered what i had suspected all last week:::
that
would be
my
new
favorite
place for
tasty treats of
love
and
joy
and
unfathomable deliciousness:
the most worth it half-hour drive anyone could make
*
the selection was overwhelming:
*
i ended up going with a *taste*pack*
and a *caramel*apple* cupcake:
*
i wanted to wait 'til i got home to eat it with some
hot,
organic,
green,
blueberry tea,
but i
couldn't wait
& nibbled in the car::
[notice the new haircut?? no?? yeah, it's way subtle, i guess]
*
i bought a notebook with my new favorite piece of advice,
and
looking at this photo makes me remember
that i need to get a new favorite tea mug.
*
this guy,
blogged about here,
fell on the floor
& broke his handle.
*
awww...adios, smiley-face tea mug!
*

this weekend,
i saw a brand new view of the
New York City
skyline:
one from the top
autumn & us on top of bear mountain
*
tip tippy top,
fall foliage freeze frame,
breathe in, breathe out
*
oh goodness:
northface // ugg boots
\\
//
\\
//
\\
//
*fall uniform*
*
[i miss my flip flops]
*
the boyf
zoomed
himself & i
through the winding, twisting
roads of upstate new york
on Saturday afternoon:
we even caught my
nana's favorite animal:
...and what excited me was that none of these deer
had antlers, which means they were girls.
i kept saying to Tomas:
"they were having a girl party,
they were having a girl party."
i thought it
was cute, i guess,
because obviously
females of every species need
a break from the men.
;)

speaking of that last thought,
my favorite new show has been
on HBO.
it grips me every Sunday night.
i think it's really a lot of fun,
and
refreshing,
and i would say "tune in"
but you've
had to have watched the previous weeks
to love it too.
*
anyway,
on last night's episode,
Mrs. Schroeder said this to Van Alden:
"I've been lectured a great deal...by men who speak boldly, but do nothing."
my new favorite quote.
*
**

*
also worth mentioning
[although you might think me monotonous
and lame, but i don't care]
is my love for
the ((relatively)) new babies::
they are getting so big,
and they're only 6 months old this week.
*
they're also growing in snuggliness
and are incredibly hilarious.
*
case in point,
this snapshot of them
holding each other
while taking their
afternoon nap:
how could i resist??
*

this one's a little guilty.
hee hee.
i need to make a new deposit into my
bank account so i can use my
debit card to make an online purchase of these
Boutique 9 Boots and add a new pair
to my fall-shoes-repertoire:
i wanted them in black,
like i saw Maegan have 'em in,
but the place i found them in my size,
only's got grey.
*
i'll deal.
*
i'm pretty sure i HAFF to have 'em.

new music.
two of my favorites have been:
and
*
yep. on loop.

*
'nother "new"??
in my opinion,
the freshest new
color combo for *FaLL*2010*::
raspberry

& grey

[if you scroll back up to the Bear Mountain pics,
you'll see peeking out from under my Northface
is my raspberry/grey striped sweater
that i wear whenever i can]
*

*
what else is "new"?
the
new bedroom
i've been conjuring up
with my
interior-decorating-expert
of a bitt, my sister.
we eyed this Vera Wang comforter from Kohls
[and when i have her to find the link for me, i'll link it]
gorgios.

finally,
lastly,
in conclusion,
to end,
wrapping up...

my *2010* is ALMOST OVER,

and that means

I working on a new layout/blogging vehicle/title/avenue

for the new blog to be mine come the end of 2010.

****

i can't believe it.

more on that to come.

****

today's a new Monday of a new week.
