"Friends and Family"

Last Wednesday was the start of Bloomingdales friends and family sale and this weekend Paula (my mom) and I spent some time at the department store armed with only our wallets and our water bottles. I mentioned in a post a few days ago that I started a new job a few weeks ago, and since beginning that job I have started the process of making my J.Crew filled, collegiate inspired wardrobe into something a little more professional. While my work dress code is every girls dream---"Tastefully Casual", I'm finding it really hard to tread the line between, "Sexy and confident PR maven" and "The girl that owns too many Jackie Cardigans".

So I decided with my discount to purchase a few items. This is by far my favorite.



Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I'm off to Chicago for my very first business trip this week and I've never been there. CAN'T WAIT!!!

My one regret was not taking his picture...

Let me set the stage for you...

Last night I met the most fantastical person ever...6'1, Rihanna inspired Mohawk, lip ring, bling blinged out, fierce tranny of a waiter. He was sheer perfection. He was successful in getting K, M, J and I pretty sloshed and the $3 margs were flowing almost as frequently as the "hey BOO's" from Mr. Fabulous. If I could have brought him home in my pocket---I would have.
I think we even asked him if we could have him included on our check. When it came time for us to leave we received kisses and hugs from our new "bf"...all in all---pretty fantastic night.

Maybe I will relax this weekend...I have my first business trip next week!!! EEEKK stay tuned for all the fabulous details!

"How do you two not have a show on Bravo?"

"Don't Rain on My Parade"

My morning started off a little rougher than most. I couldn't figure out what to wear (the "tastefully casual" dresscode is harder than you think), my hair straightner is broken and the only thing that got me through the train this morning was playing "Don't Rain on My Parade", the GLEE version on repeat. I personally can't wait for April so that I can have my beloved show back. The winter was a lot less fantastical since GLEE was on hiatus.

Life Observation of the Day:
I think "Asian Couple" on the train broke up... If they can't make it---who can!!

Between the break-up of Jesse and Sandra (devestated!!---cheating bastard), Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet (I really thought those two were for real), and the demise of my fav asian commuting couple...I've lost all faith in love.

Hopefully all of you had a better morning, but in case you didn't, I'll leave you with a little GLEE...




Happy Thursday!

Decorating my Desk...I mean ledge

The sun has decided to show up again and I can’t tell you how happy that makes me…literally. Whenever the rain starTs falling I want to crawl into the fetal position and do nothing. Getting out of bed is WAY more difficult and working is damn near impossible.

Yesterday I posted about my new job and so this morning I thought I would share with everyone what my new desk...and by desk, I mean ledge...and view look like.

Here is my ledge…I’m still in the process of making it look like home and I've actually grown to love it.



Here is my view… I can’t complain!! I love NYC in the Spring!!!




We can all thank my blackberry for the "stunning" quality!

I swear I'm still alive...and I have big news!!

So it's been awhile since I last blogged. I attribute it to the fact that I started a new job last week...YES, I am finally legitimately employed. I get health insurance, paid vacation and a few sick days. BIG leap from the place I worked before...Thank god. The only thing I miss about that job are my coworkers and the celebs.

I don't have to many life updates for all of you...with the exception of being extremely busy; this weekend I spent some time in Brooklyn. I felt extremely inadequate, totally not hip and yet extremely accepted by everyone. Never have I seen more babies in a bar, hipsters walking infants in $1500 bugaboo strollers and PBR cans than I can count.

It was definitely something I would do again.

Within the realm of all things dating (or lack there of), I received ANOTHER text from the guy I met on a train...I'm not sure I told this story, but without writing a telenovela...here's the story.

A a few months ago a guy sat next to me on the train. I went to college with him, we have met around 15 times, hung out at the same parties and I know his ex-gf...yet he proceeded to ask for my number, not realize we were already facebook friends, and text and bbm me until I think he got the hint that I was NOT interested in hearing about his "dreams" from the night before (I clearly attract the weirdos).Anyway, he texted me last week...clearly not getting that I wasn't interested the first 14 times he tried. I ignored.

WHERE ARE THE NORMAL BOYS??

Currently listening to my new anthem...



Painting my nails and eating a grapefruit. Here is to being random and loving every minute of it!

Until tomorrow...

Sobbing with Sandra

I hate to admit it, but I would much rather watch the red carpet than the actual Oscars. However, I couldn't help but tune in last night to see who took home the Academy Award especially in the Leading Actress category. I would be lying if I told you that I actually thought Sandra Bullock was going to win (while I wanted her to win)...my money was on the DIVINE Meryl Streep.

BUT when Sandy took the stage she delivered the BEST speech of the night. I was crying....sobbing actually and when all was said and done---she deserved it.

PLUS

She is my vote for best dressed!


Congrats Sandy!!

MY FIRST GIVEAWAY-A TREAT FROM ESSIE!

Well hello blog friends...

In honor of reaching 50 followers, I have decided to do a little giveaway. It's nothing big, but I wanted to thank all of you for stopping by to check out the blog.

Many of you may know how much I LOVE nail polish. So... I decided that for my first giveaway I will be sending you my two new favorite Essie polishes!

Here they are...
I became obsessed with this color a few weeks ago. It's called Chinchilly and its absolutely adorable. It resembles a color that Chanel is doing. It's a perfect Light Gray/Taupe color.


This is the color I posted about a few weeks ago. I actually had it on my nails when I worked with Lauren Conrad and she really liked it. It's a fun color for spring and looks great with short nails and perfect on toes!

The rules of the giveaway are simple. Post a comment that you want to be entered and I will pick the winner by March 5th!

Tell alllllll your friends and let them know about the giveaway. If this goes well I have some fun ideas for bigger ones!

XO,

Ash
