“Never say never” is sometimes BS.

I normally don’t like to write anything off (trends, colour combinations, etc.), because you never know how it may be interpreted in the future… but this I’m just never gonna understand.


Summer Beauty Buy!

I’m SO obsessed with CoverGirl’s Outlast Lip Stain! You must go out and get it! Best $8 – or something around there – that you’ll spend this week. I picked out Bit of Blossom (#410) for my pout, and it gives the perfect I-just-ate-a-popsicle stain to your lips, while sparing your tongue and teeth the awkward discoloration! I really want to get some other colors too… Has anyone else tried the Outlast lip stain and has a color they’d recommend?

I’m back! And still anxious…

I got home from the Dominican Republic so late last night that it was, actually, super early this morning. Our flight was delayed 3 hours due to the storms in the mid-west and our plane being hit by lightening. I just hate how the journey home can put a damper on your otherwise lovely vacation, especially when that journey makes you feel like a jerk for just wanting to be HOME ALREADY, while people in Mississippi are losing their homes and dying in the wake of a devastating tornado. Lo siento, Mississippi :(. Anyways, I wasn’t feeling well on the plane last night but couldn’t tell if I was just travel-weary, or actually gettin sick. Well, turns out I was gettin sicky, because waking up around noon today = feeling like I had been hit by a truck. Whhhhich means, I couldn’t go to Target to shop the Zac Posen line! OMG- END OF THE WORLD.

Dude, she really just refer to a tornado and not being able to go to Target in the same paragraph?

The stuff I really wanted is already sold out online too, ¬†hence the anxiety. Why do I care so much?? I can’t help it. Gaaaah. Anyways, to distract myself: a synopsis of my relaxation in Punta Cana!

1. Sailing is awesome! Every boyfriend should come with a sailboat (or get one very quickly).

2. You can get sunburnt in just 30 minutes! Or at least I can… My peaches & cream complexion is now strawberries & cream.

3. I become more terrified of flying with every trip I take. Lightening hitting our plane in Atlanta did not help this!

4. Holding a stingray is not as easy as it looks, but I’m pretty much a badass for trying. I also swam with non-human-eating sharks. Whatevs. NBD.

5. French fries are good no matter where in the world you are.

Back to work tomorrow, and back to my regularly irregular blogging! Look forward, and stay tunned!


Anxiety…I haz it.

I haz anxiety because I’m about to leave for the Dominican Republic (yay!!) and in my absence, two very important collaborations will be debuting at target and I will not be able to see them until I get back. And we allllll know that any good Target collaboration sells out VERY quickly. Meaning, I won’t get my fair chance at the pieces I want! agggh

Life = Hard

I’ve already posted about one source of my anxiety: Zac Posen for Target, so let’s not pour salt on that wound. My second source of anxiety, however, has yet to be mentioned on Gold Bars. It is Cynthia Vincent for Target. Siiiighhhh. Those of you who are in the know, know that Target has already released a few styles; but much to my dismay (and in spite of four Target store visits) the only styles available are not to my liking. ALL I WANT ARE THE COGNAC WEDGES.

So if you go to Target and you see these babies, you have two choices:

1. Buy them for me (size 6.5)


2. Leave the 6.5’s on the shelf and walk away slowly.

It wasn’t always easy, but it sure was worth it.

Friday marked the two year anniversary of  when I successfully convinced a man to love me. To celebrate, he took me out to dinner and bought himself an iPad.

Vintage dress (no label). Chanel flats. Apple iPad.

I am like, really excited.

Now pooping iPads!

If fishes were wishes, we’d all have this belt.

Some Guidelines

When putting on your gold lame fanny pack in the morning, if you have to decide whether to put it over or under your FUPA, you should probably take your outfit in a different direction…

Do NOT attempt to mix your plaids unless you are absolutely certain that you know what you’re doing…

Oversized sunglasses and oversized sun visors make very different statements…
