|New Discovery on Etsy
I recently came upon a shop on Etsy called Bella Bath & Body. After browsing the listings, shop announcement and profile, I was ready to "favorite" this shop.
I'm still plotting my first order, and the products look and sound wonderful! I love the labels, too. A few goodies that I have my eye on are a Frosted Lime Cupcake lotion & whipped soap, Cotton Candy body butter, Mango Madness whipped soap, and lip balms in Raspberry Cheesecake, Sour Watermelon & Raspberry Mocha. How awesome does this stuff sound!? Yum. Spring is right around the corner (especially here in California), and I'm looking at fruity-delicious scents.
The whipped soap in particular looks fabulous. It appears to have the EXACT texture I love in a whipped soap, and one that isn't easy to find in the bath & body world.
I'm really looking forward to trying these goodies. It doesn't hurt that she's a huge Beatles fan like me! :)http://www.etsy.com/shop/BellaBathAndBody

|Wow, has it been that long?!
Good lord, it's been over a YEAR since I've updated this thing. How sad is that!?
It's rather embarrassing, actually.
Not a whole lot new to report. It looks like people have been dropping me off their Friends lists like I'm a hot potato. I don't blame them one bit; I would too.
I am still alive, people! Helloooooooooooo out there!
It's freakin' Saturday night and I'm bored.
I'm formally inviting each and every person who reads this to come on over! Let's have a little soiree, whaddya say? I'll provide the chips 'n dip, and you bring the Midori margaritas. :-P
Oh, a note of interest ... I saw the Rock Gods themselves, Fleetwood Mac, on July 6. I was flabbergasted, thrilled and entertained to the nth degree. Lindsay could not be any sexier if he tried, and Stevie is, well, Stevie. Such a goddess.
I brought my parents to the show, and they had an amazing time; I'm so happy about that. It was their first time in a limo. What a treat to be able to give them such a fun night out. That alone is priceless, not to mention the show which was worth its weight in gold.
On another musical note, I recently picked up the Jason Mraz cd. Man, that boy can sing! His songs are so joyful, great for putting me in a happy mood. Awesome stuff. He's like a less-brooding and more uplifting John Mayer (who I also adore).
Anyway, nothing new really to report. My job has basically taken over my life, which is sometimes great and sometimes not. It can be rather smothering at times, but I have no regrets.
No kids, no man for me, although I wouldn't mind ...
When I click to submit this entry, there might be a minor explosion within LJ. That'd be the dust crumbling off my account in huge sheets. Watch out for falling debris.
LOL, methinks I should update more often.

|I'm terrible at this!
Gosh, I'm the biggest LJ slacker EVER.
It's no wonder people are dropping me from their Friends list. I never post.
How can I expect people to keep me when they can't get to know me? Duh.
Where to begin... I feel silly writing about myself, my little life.
It's much more interesting to read about all of YOU.
I guess I always feel I don't have anything interesting to say. Not very self-confident, am I?
Let's see ... what is new with me.
My "ex best friend" has inched her way back into my life after us not speaking for over a year.
It's odd; we've picked up right where we left off in a way. I just hope I'm not making a mistake. Some people felt I was better off without her in my life, so I sort of have mixed feelings. Of course, most of *those* people are no longer in my life either. So go figure.
I think I will just take it slow. I do miss her sometimes, the fun we had. Keeping my fingers crossed that she's grown up a bit in the past year. I think the fact that she's getting divorced may help.
My boyfriend of over three years and I broke up about four weeks ago. I have mixed feelings on that. A small part of me misses him, misses "us," but a bigger part of me is relieved and semi-happy.
I keep trying to convince myself that my Prince Charming is out there somewhere.
That's me, always the romantic. ;-)
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone. Bah, humbug.

|Help the uninformed
Can someone tell me how you mention somebody on LJ (an LJ user) and make their name a link to their journal? Does that make sense? I see everyone doing it, and I'm clueless about stuff like this.

|Relieve my boredom
Recommend at least one of each of the following to me, please:
1. A movie
2. A book
3. A CD
4. An LJ user not on my friends list
5. A website
Thank ya kindly!

|How eeevillll are you?
Darnit, I can't get the cute little picture to show up here. Someone tell me how?I am 16% evil.
I try to stay away from evil deeds but succumb to temptation every once in a while. I'm not quite on my way to hell but I certainly have some explaining to do.Are you evil? find out at Hilowitz.com

|Such a tragic loss. =(
George Harrison has died after a battle with cancer.
John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono paid tribute to Harrison, who she said brought magic to the lives of those who knew him.
"George has given so much to us in his lifetime and continues to do so even after his passing, with his music, his wit and his wisdom," she told The Press Association.
"His life was magical and we all felt we had shared a little bit of it by knowing him.
"Thank-you George, it was grand knowing you."
"He died with one thought in mind -- love one another," friend Gavin De Becker told The Associated Press, adding that Harrison's wife, Olivia Harrison, and son Dhani, 24, were with him when he died.
His former band-mate Sir Paul McCartney told the Press Association: "I am devastated and very, very sad. We knew he'd been ill for a long time.
He was a lovely guy and a very brave man and had a wonderful sense of humour. He is really just my baby brother."
Rest in peace, George. We love you. =( Current Mood: crushed

|Tuesday already, yay!
I just love three-day weekends. Aren't they the best? And the icing on the cake - it rained nearly all weekend and continues to be overcast now. I am in heaven!
Not to mention the fact that our trial vacated today. The bailiff and clerk think I bring good luck to their Department because the last three or four times I've been assigned there, at least one trial has vacated. It's wonderful to be paid a whole day's shebang and only put in 2 hours of work. I am a happy camper for picking this career, that's for sure.
Hey, this is my journal. If you don't like hearing me brag, then get out! tee hee ;D
I was awful today as far as nutrition goes. I had *gasp* a Western Bacon Cheeseburger with extra bbq sauce from Carl's Jr. Can't get any worse than that, me thinks!
Had a really nice weekend with the John man. Until this morning when he tried to get frisky at 5:00 a.m. Sorry, but that is the last thing on my mind at that hour! Too much info, I know. Sorry.
I need to buy three CDs, like NOW: The new Enya, Jewel and Cranberries. I simply refuse to pay $17.99 for each CD, however. If I can't find 'em for no more than $14.99 per CD, then forget it. Who would pay full price? After tax, that is almost $20 for a damn CD. I think not! Maybe I should ask for a CD burner for Xmas. Ya think? Anyone reading this have one? Are they pretty groovy? Worth every penny? I must sound pretty frugal, but I'm really not. After all, I spend $3.50-plus on fancy-schmancy espresso drinks a few times a week. Gotta love iced mochas!
I know, this is a pretty boring, lame-o entry, but I keep promising people to update more often. So at least they can't say I'm not putting forth the effort. ;) Love ya, Jenn & Jillybean! LOL Current Mood: relaxed

|Happy Tuesday, peeps
Ack! I should be working on transcripts. Such the procrastinator am I. *sigh* Just when I get caught up, I allow myself to fall behind again. I must be a glutton for punishment.
Besides, browsing LJ for interesting people is MUCH more interessante.
Why does *everyone* else get to have lovely autumn weather? It's been in the 70s here. High 70s. I want COOLness! I want to be able to wear the pretty new clothes I bought. I hate California. It's too damn sunny here. We get, what, 2 months of winter? Gah! Dreaming of Seattle ...
I am the worst slacker on LJ ever, methinks.
Katelyn, when are you going to join? HELLO! Are you reading this? hehe (Yay for the Dbacks!)
My two new faeries arrived in the mail yesterday. They are called Diamond Fairy and Star Fairy and are ornaments you can hang on a Christmas tree or anywhere all year round. They are so darling! They're itty bitty things, only about 3 1/2" tall.
I bought them on www.fairygardens.com - check out that site! The webmaster is a sweetheart (her name is Hope, tell her Holly sent ya!).
I just adore the latest Jewel song "Standing Still." Isn't she the best? Crooked tooth and all.
Peace out, trouts. For now. Current Mood: bored

|My AIM name
I know some of you already know this, but my *semi-permanent* AIM name is Hollyfaery72, not HollyMinx72 like it was before. I figured this was a good place to let everyone know that.
If any of you use AIM and have never talked to me on it before, feel free to add me and I'll do the same. :)
Happy Friday, everyone.

|My heart is broken.
I keep thinking that any minute now I'm going to hear/feel a giant explosion or hear the words "Breaking News!" on TV. I went to sleep last night wondering if I'd be awakened hours later to ... God knows what. Then I feel like crying because I feel so guilty for having a bed to sleep in and having all my loved ones safe and sound. I find myself questioning everything I do (or do not) believe in and looking for answers that are not there. I went to work today and tried to force myself to smile and laugh with my co-workers over the stupidest little things, and I felt horribly self-centered for doing so and very superficial. I held tears back all day because I am too *worried about what others will think if they see me crying*. (Pathetic, aren't I?) My heart is broken for the people who are suffering or involved in any way and hurts just as much today as it did yesterday. (I literally feel pain in my chest)
All the little/materialistic/petty things in life that were *SO* important two days ago are meaningless now.
I look at people carrying on as if this never happened and want to smash their smiling faces in. Then I feel guilty about that. Current Mood: numb

|Short but sweet update ...
I will post a much lengthier entry tomorrow, as it is 11:35 p.m. and I have to be up at 6:30 a.m.! (yikes!)
For those who were excited for me about the Stevie Nicks concert, well, she cancelled it. *Postponed* it, actually, until October 1st - which coincidentally is also my THREE YEAR dating anniversary with John. So I'm sure it will make our night even more special and memorable.
I want to give a quick shout-out to Miss Lady Succulence. I'm stoked that you have joined LJ! I love ya, kiddo. I got your e-mails and will reply tomorrow.
To UnravelingMira - I got your e-mails (thank you!) and will be responding tomorrow. I've gotcha on my Friends list and am happy you've got me on yours.
I'm such a slacker lately with LJ and e-mails. (don't rub it in, Jill & Jenn! roffle)
I'm out like a trout. ;-)

|Wide awake at 3:00 a.m.
Gee, I drank a Mocha Blast hours ago - could that be why I'm still wide awake? Dunno. Don't care, except that I don't want to sleep the day away tomorrow.
I read a poem today that I just find really beautiful. It is copyrighted, but the only name I have for the author as of yet is "Rachel" - if I get her last name, I'll be sure to fix it. Anyway, I'd like to post it here.
Mermaid by Rachel ?
Did you ever hear the mermaids sing
To a beating bloody heart?
Their voices I heard that day
When the waves began to part.
Fighting for a breath of air
Wishing my soul would find the clouds
I didn't realize down below
You swam through silent sounds.
Up you came with strength in hand and tail.
I saw my face inside your eyes
Your smile spoke seas and oceans to me.
My savior from depths you did arise.
It happened on that salty wind
The moment you wait, the second that saves.
I watched you swim towards the horizon,
Then dive into the waves.
So swiftly you were gone
Your duty done your moment had come
To save my soul, my life, my being.
From the same blackness you were from.
When I found my footing and reached the land
I looked out into the blue.
I saw the sun touch the sea
And I blew a kiss to you. Current Mood: awake

|Hot but feeling good.
It's going to be, like, 108 degrees again today! When will it ever end? My prayers for rain probably won't be answered for months. We've had Halloweens where it was 90 degrees. And others where it was cool and raining - aaaahhh, just the thought of it brings a smile to my face.
Anyway. I'm going to *FINALLY* see Moulin Rouge tonight with my mom. She's the only one who will allow herself to be dragged to see it. I hope she doesn't hate it.
Not doing anything fun for the 4th tomorrow, not even seeing John. :( He and I have to take advantage of the free time to get our work done. Then we'll have 4 days together, yay! Usually we just have the weekends. I told him I got the tickets for Stevie Nicks, and he's excited. I made him guess who the artist was at first, and he named Madonna, The Cranberries (probably because we've seen them before) and Britney Spears! WHAT IS UP WITH THAT??? He knows I can't stand the little twirp. I'm hoping he was joking. *shudders at the thought*
I'm definitely getting into this LJ thing more now, even making some new friends here, which is always nice.
I've updated my "Interests" on my profile page, in case anyone's bored and/or interested.
Happy 4th, everyone! And happy belated Canada Day to my lovely Canadian friends!
Ciao. Current Mood: cheerful

|Are you jealous? ;-)
Today I bought tickets for the upcoming Stevie Nicks concert! WOO-frickin-HOO!!! I am stoked, to say the least. It's going to be Wednesday, August 15 at 7:30 at the Chronicle Pavilion in Concord, CA. My lucky guest will be either my boyfriend John or my mom, depending on if John can go or not. I got great seats, too, just behind the box seats in the *center*! (mid-priced tickets, not the most expensive, not the cheapest) Lowri, come visit me and I'll take you! =) Current Mood: giddy
