I thought Victoria's Secret was supposed to be the be-all, end-all of what is considered sexy. I don't think I'll ever think of the brand in the same way.

* Sorry M, I had to. Miss Benz, I'm totally on the lookout for yours...
Every time I'm out of makeup, I seem to be in a hurry. I then stop at my local grocery/drug store to pick up a quick fix. NEVER turns out quite like I hope.
I need help. Bad. I have absolutely NO clue what I'm doing with colors (for my skintone) or what brands are best.

In the early '90s, NKOTB were melting hearts of teen girls all over the world, selling 50 million albums, before they walked off the block in 1994. Now the thirty-ish singers will go "step by step" and belt out their greatest hits for thousands of screaming women. They hope.

I really hope family and friends are allowed to mourn in peace.
Do you remember the controversy surrounding United Colors of Benetton ads?
(I haven't seen too many lately, but remember seeing a lot in, say, the 90s.)
Anyway, one of our articles for class recently discussed how some people found it incredibly offensive that Benetton tried to turn a profit by publishing a number of ads that neglected to show any products and instead focused on often shocking imagery portraying health, sexual, racial (etc.) issues affecting the world.
Others were impressed with the ads due to the awareness that was brought to some of these important issues. Many others yet wished Benetton would have taken it a step further and actually promoted ways in which people could take action, instead of just merely posting a shocking picture.
What are your thoughts? Should advertisements have to show the product that they sell? Or do you think it's a wider issue that brings branding and imaging to a higher level that stresses the importance of sharing norms and ideals with one's customer base?
Your style is a mix of bohemian chic and contemporary ethnic flair. Whether you travel extensively or shop locally, chances are good that your home is filled with a collection of interesting accessories. By contrast, a neutral color scheme and furniture with simple lines is the best backdrop to accentuate your most colorful pieces. To achieve this mix-and-match design style, look to nature. It's all about simple lines and natural materials as a backdrop for your collectables and artwork.
Design Tips for Ethnic Eclectic
Contemporary and chic accessories go with any style. Dress up family-friendly comfort in the dining room with a sophisticated Murano glass light fixture that's out of the reach of little hands. Or, make the master bedroom your grown-up retreat with soothing colors from the garden and a wooden platform bed with a trendy upholstered headboard.

Jimmy goes on around 9:30 p.m.
Enjoy an evening (or even just 45 minutes) of live original music. He and some friends will have a great arrangement of acoustic and electric guitars, cello, mandolin, banjo and hand-drum/percussions.
Anyway, did you own one of these bad boys? What did it look like? Did you have a lot of charms on it?
Poor little guy.
What a way to start the day.

On the agenda this semester? Public Relations Campaigns and Organizational Communications.
I know you're all jealous. It's ok.

Both homes are asking around $175,000.
Seriously, how is that possible?
Good thing we're not quite ready to decide our next move.
I neglected to do so on two separate occasions this weekend.
Both times, I woke up choking and gasping for air. Only on the first occasion, however, was I able to cough up the remains. The second is still lodged conveniently in my throat.
Thought I'd share.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be posting this picture or not... But isn't this place beautiful?! Some upcoming nuptials are going to take place in that room this coming fall.
I can't wait!
While we're on the subject of things I don't understand. Let's talk about Real World/Road Rules challenges and how the same people just keep coming back, year after year after year. Veronica?! Coral?! Don't you have better things to do with your lives?!
They must get paid a pretty penny. There's no way you could actually have a job and take that much time off all the time.
Can someone please explain this to me?
