building MN

Just a few of the buildings and lines from MN...

I loved this building.
It reminded me of the Walt Disney Castle!

This museum was so neat! It had a staircase that played music as you took each step!
I really felt like a kid inside!

I enjoyed the views of old buildings intertwined with new, and the textures and reflections that played off of each other.

lil lush pud

lush pud

Lush says:

"Looking like a miniature traditional Christmas pudding, smelling of marzipan and full of lovely goodies like lemon peel powder, clove powder, aloe vera extract and rose absolute, this ballistic will leave you feeling peace and goodwill towards all. And whilst you were blissed out in the smell, that aloe vera extract will have been soothing and bringing clam to your winter skin.

This ballistic is a Christmas institution with our staff and customers alike. We have been making it now for more than 10 years, with people coming back each December just to buy it.
It’s a little bit of tradition that we hope never goes out of fashion.

Shares the same fragrance as our Xmas number one – Snowcake soap."

With the holidays upon us, I figured I would reveiew an item I received from last years christmas line (I know, I will try to be better about getting stuff up!)

I like this bath bomb... it isn't beautiful in the tub, but it smells great and feels great too! They were correct on the scent - like snowcake soap - it's strong and quite a "comfort food" smell, which I don't typically enjoy - but it's definitely good for Christmas time, and indulging yourself in a treat once in a while!

Beware - it has tendencies to stain your tub faintly... nothing that isn't a quick wipe off - but the brown color can be quite a turn off for some, so I thought I would mention it.

*I don't think these are available this year. Lush has all of their Christmas products available on the website now, and this must not have made it for return! If you love snowcake soap and want to try this product, usually there are ebay sellers who hold products - these don't necessarily go bad - so that's always an option to check out if you can't get your hands on products from an older line that are no longer available on the website!

turkey day 12'

*gobble gobble*

 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

We woke up early to get our food going, listening to the new Rih Rih album with football on the tube. We had a few drinks, and literally I had all the candles in the house going :-)

...after dinner we snuggled down to watch a movie together with a slice of apple pie!

One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories with my sister was the year we drank so much Lambrusco... we couldn't stop laughing. It was such a good time. So for me, it's kind of a tradition to have a few glasses of it for my homie :)

We also woke up early on Friday and did some Black Friday shopping
we scored on some really good deals!

I wasn't able to snatch this bad boy the day it came out... so I was really nervous it would be sold out.
Luckily it wasn't - and I got my copy.
The deluxe edition included some neat things, like a DVD of some Loud Tour 12' footage.
Luh dis bitch!

angels around us

No amount of time will allow me to forget.
Nothing can fill that void.
I deal with it the only way I can
the only way I know how...
But I miss her.
I have so much to be thankful for,
but this week
is always so very haunting.
I will my thoughts and my mind, not to delve back...
to better days,
before the mess.
in an attempt to stop the sadness.
I don't believe my heart will ever fully mend.
I have pieces that are gone forever.
Now, I have angels around me.
loving me,
and watching me.
knowing that,
helps a little.

Last month I was approached with an opportunity for a section in our newsletter.
I was given all creative freedom, with an "article" relevantly titled:
"Taylor's Thoughts"
It's humorous to me because during my time as an intern, they had given me a blog to maintain and create posts for.
It seems writing/blogging is a part of my life no matter where I go or what I do :)
I'm quite excited actually, and it's very flattering that others believe I am good enough and interesting enough for such tasks.

I cannot express how much I loved this movie.
I can't wait to own it on DVD and finish my collection.
I will also be buying this soundtrack - it was perfect.
I am so obsessed, we went back and seen it Sunday!!
The babes liked it too, so she didn't mind seeing it a second time with me <3
Sunday - round two!

the end of a saga...

The Twilight Saga:
Breaking Dawn - Part II
While it premieres tonight at midnight, I unfortunately can't make it.
I love the midnight shows, but due to several factors - this time around, I decided it would be best to wait and buy tickets for Saturday ;-)
The babes is being a good sport about our date night plans, since she knows how excited I am to see it!
I have no shame about my love for this story :-)
While the movie will be bittersweet, I'm very eager to see how they decided to put it together...
I'm definitely anticipating when it will be available on DVD!
