looks whos at fashion week

Spotted: Justin Suarez @ the Milly show at fashion week.

Mark Indelicato is just like his Ugly Betty character Justin Suarez. Justin would totally freak to be at Fashion Week! and I bet Mark was squirming with delight as well. Way to do your character proud!

guac alternative

So i looooove guacamole.... unfortunately it is high in points when you pair it with delicious lime Tostittos & eat way more than a measly serving.
Thank goodness for this healthy alternative! I made it this weekend & it was a huge hit! As dippers i offered the lime tostittos & Baked Tortilla Scoops! It would also be great with pita bread and veggies.
I highly recommend making this dish for you next party! that way you wont feel as guilty for all of the Coronas you wash it down with ;)

Bon Appetit!

One 15-oz. can early/young peas, drained
1/2 cup mashed avocado (about 1 medium-small avocado's worth)
1/3 cup chopped cherry or grape tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (like Fage Total 0%)
4 tsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. cumin
1/8 tsp. chili powder
Optional: chopped cilantro, chopped jarred jalapenos, additional salt and pepper

Place drained peas in a medium bowl and mash thoroughly with a potato masher or fork. Add all other ingredients except for the tomatoes, onions and optional items. Continue to mash until blended. Stir in the tomatoes, onions and, if you like, some chopped cilantro and/or jalapenos. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if needed. Enjoy! MAKES 6 SERVINGS

what they dont teach you in school

JCrew sent this to me this morning.... and it is SO true.
Thanks Mr.Gates!

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2 : The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helpin g you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.


new things for the bedroom

Look at all these new fabulous things i got for my bedroom.....just need to get curtain rods for these and then Mrs&Mr. Poppins are going to help me hang them! purdy ;)this is totally gonna help organize my life.... and my clothes! Mr.HG is so lovely he is going to put it together for me this weekend! yay

and here are some added organizers i purchased from ikea for my living room, because as JCrew said i need to make better use of my space. so im attempting by using these...so hopefully with all of these new things my apt will look a lil bit cuter & a lot more organized!

*these purchases were made with JCrew's car... you would be surprised how much a civic can hold!

sorry for the delay

i know i have been posting a lot of "sorry for lack of posting" blogs, but really i am. i have just been in a funk lately & it's hard to blog when im not beaming with happiness. usually this would not be a problem... but for the past few months i just cant seem to get it together. this blog is supposed to be my happy place.... so once i am consistently happy again there will be posts galore!!!

on a better note... it is fashion week in nyc... {which would be fabulous if i was anyone of importance at my "glamorous" job.} fashion week takes place in Bryant Park which is like 3 blocks from my work. needless to say there are paparazzi, security, celebrities {and those who wish they were} everywhere you look! we were having lunch at the Bryant Park Grill today* when guess who was dining next to us...

DR. 90210!** bleach blonde tips and all!so okay, hes not like an A list celebrity... maybe more like D list... but hey! he looks decent in this photo but in person he looks like a total douchebag -- no surprise. he had a suit jacket that was unbuttoned down to his navel, his hair looked greasy and his skin orange. Hott! LOL

*yum... but quite expensive.... so go there for a business lunch!
**spotted by JCrew or i would have missed out on yet another celebrity sighting
