Everyone should have a box of blank greeting cards in their desk drawer

Everyone should have a box of blank greeting cards in their desk drawer, just in case someone does something that requires a note of thanks, congratulations or encouragement. Blue Starr Designs’Animal Boxed Cards are so cute they are almost cloying, which is just what you want in a casual greeting card. The simple design and blank interior provide flexibility, so you can use them for specific occasions such as “Thank god you broke up with your loser fiancé before an expensive wedding and messy divorce” or something more general like “Congratulations on being really good at life.” Get a box of 10 (one design per box) for $5. Customized invitations/announcements also available.

The holidays are winding down

The holidays are winding down, and suddenly all your hustle and bustle (shopping, parties, family functions) will soon come to a grinding halt. How will you ever fill all your newfound free time? Well, you could fill 2 hours and 16 minutes by watching the newly released movie, Memoirs of a Geisha, which is cinematic brilliance. But why not extend your pleasure by reading the book, which contains levels of depth and nuance that the movie simply cannot touch? And despite the visual grandeur of the movie, the book captures the importance of kimono in Japanese culture even more vividly. Available from Amazon for $10.17 (or $7.99 for mass market paperback).

Go out to the local corner store (a venture much less daunting than the mall) and buy a current issue, then fill out a subscription card and place it in the front cover.

In my ever ongoing quest to avoid exercise I decided to work out another part of the body

In my ever ongoing quest to avoid exercise I decided to work out another part of the body, my mind. A book on fashion would suffice but I decided relationship theories, be it fact or fiction, were more the urge. That’s when I noticed a question I always ask my significant staring at me from the book shelf.

Leanne Shapton’s, “Was She Pretty?” is the story of Kim, her insecurities and jealousy, something everyone can relate to. To give anymore would be giving the book away, however don’t buy “Was She Pretty?” if your not ready to take a real good look at yourself. Order your copy through Barnes & Noble.com for $16.00 saving you 20% when bought online. Just as a heads up, tomorrows pick will be tissue…your gonna need it. Cheers

I must have this!

I must have this! I fell deeply in love with Frida Kalho after watching a PBS special one

lonely Saturday night. That night at my deepest depth of self pity, watching Frida face an

innumerable amount of personal tragedies with hope, confidence and grace gave me all new

answers and focus. I found through all her personal tragedies she never tried to make the

bad things that happen in life go away, but dug in deep to face each one, reminding you of

the inhuman strength women posses.

Frida Kahlo-Never Forget You is a

compilation of letters written by and to her, famous portraits, pictures of dear friends and

her pet eagle (yes…I meant to say pet eagle). Urbanoutfitters.com can

possibly part with a copy for you for about $24.95. This book is just so beautiful I

want to touch it! Not in a freaky way or anything…just trying to get my point across…about

how much I like it…like you touch stuff when you like it…like…never mind.

Cheers
