"…water bottle full of whiskey in my handbag" -k$

I was lucky enough to have this weekend off!! I took advantage of my downtime with lots and lots of sleep, some cocktails, and fun with friends.

Saturday, I decided to stop by my favorite local used book store to scope out what they had. I picked up Chuck Klosterman‘s IV and a collection of Jean Paul Sartre plays including No Exit. $9 all together. Not too shabby!


After my finds at the Book Exchange, I decided to stop by one of the local thrift stores on a whim and I am so happy I did! I found this adorable vintage rawhide purse!

The moment I flung it over my shoulder I felt like Kate Jackson on my way to kick some ass Charlies Angel’s Style! Only $6!!


On my way home, I stopped at my corner drug store to pick up some cold supplies for Casey who was home sick. While there I spotted some awesome cosmetics deals!!

I picked up these three Sally Hansen Insta-Dri & Xtreme Wear Polishes:


-#22 Jumpin’ Jade $1.25
-#17 Mochachino $1.25
-#40 Purple Pizzazz $.75

and because I’m such a eyeshadow junkie, I couldn’t not pick up one of the L’Oreal HiP duos #336 Devious. $2.07 (I should have just bought a bunch! damn-it)


Over all, a very successful bargain-find day! I love when that happens when you weren’t even planning on it!

Daily Threads: Teal-to-Orange religious iconography t-shirt.($?), Skinny Jeans (Old Navy), Sanuk Flip-flops ($20), Silver Bangels ($? Gift), Jade Beaded Breacelettes ($?), Bone “Sun” ring ($? Honduras), Lucky Brand Oversized Peace Mood Ring ($2[?].00 Macys)

Later, Casey and I went out to Blue Water Grill to see Ryan playing music with his friend.

…After, we hopped over to our regular bar to finish off the night. we had a lot of fun… as we always do! …and I think you can see it in my eyes… damn.

Tonight, Super Bowl Sunday… which I wasn’t even enthused about this year… It should’ve been the NY Jets. 😦 anyway… tonight we made Tacos! and one of my corn chips was shaped like a taco shell, so I made a mini Taco!


Then, J brought home a bunch of wine from his parents house, so we had out own private wine tasting! I’d say tonight was a success as well!!!

Tomasko Benefit Concert & Art Auction

Today was the benefit for Gregg John Tomasko, local musician and business owner
who is currently fighting cancer.

The benefit was held at The Pirates Loft
located at The Pirates Cove Resort & Marina in Stuart, Florida.


Casey drove all the way down there before going to work even though he could only stay for short time. My parents met me down there and bought me drinks all afternoon.
It was really nice to be able to spend the afternoon with them.


Me and Alicia, Gregg’s daughter and past cast mate of mine.


Acropolis Productions, Inc donated several pieces of my artwork to be auctioned off.
The charity would retain 100% of the proceeds.

The benefit included bands playing all afternoon by the water including:

The Hot Rods Band
The Monkey Bones

Jerry Tillman and the Hurricanes

Dave and the Waves

Don Ciccone, of The Four Seasons and The Critters
Don Ciccone has been playing in the area with The Critters

Ok, so I loved my outfit for the day.

L’OREAL Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil


I had read about L’OREAL’s Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil and was curious to give it a try.

The other day I picked one up in black and I was very happy with the results. It glides on so smoothly, I actually applied it a little too heavily at first.

I wore it to the wedding yesterday and it stayed on and in place all day and night.

The ceremony was outside, I was crying and it didn’t run. All throughout the reception, as I jumped around on the dance floor for hours, it didn’t run.

It is most definitely worth the $8 I spent on it; I’ll most likely buy one in brown and gray also.
