If You Can’t Beat Em’ Look Amazing


Wanting to do something exciting this weekend on a whim, a friend and I decided to drive 2.5 hours to the Revel Resort Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. I’m not much of a gambler, actually hate losing my money since I’m not a “lucky person” like some. Entering into the beautifully designed Revel, the spot where Beyonce held her concert last year at the Grand Opening, I was ready to hit the slots and strike it rich….lol.


Truth be told, I’m a penny slot machine girl so that’s a stretch …..I had dinner, played a few games, came up $58 at one point and lost it all. Oh well, that’s the risk of gambling, but who cares since it’s all in fun and I did look FaBULouS in a crop style Fire Engine Red Fur and Studded Boots.



Happy Saturday


Of all days, I’m in the house on a Saturday with a miserable cold eating soup. Today, I had planned on hanging out around town taking pics with my new Canon Rebel T4i Digital SLR Camera…..OMG it’s the bomb!!! I have been researching cameras for over a month and at the last minute decided to check Craigslist. Lucky me, I found a local guy selling one for $600 firm, but I managed to get it for $550.

Two days later, after a 30 minute inspection meeting with the guy at a McDonald’s, I was convinced it was a good buy. Not only was I getting the camera but also an additional macro lens along with a 3yr. store warranty that the seller purchased (which I called on the spot to verify).

I left with the camera feeling quite satisfied and just to be sure, I popped into a highly reputable pro photography store in Baltimore on Falls Rd., Service Photo and got a thorough “look over” and was told it was in excellent condition.

Told you I LUCKed up πŸ™‚

Here is my new toy….


Pics I took of my makeup……..
