Diabeetus, DeWitt, DW, darndest stuff

I find inspiration in the darndest of places....most entertainment websites but still so cray

I have found a story that I hope more than anything is true........

First of all I learned something his last name is Flajnik and I hope that's pronounced EXACTLY how I'm saying it Flaushznick. Also....

And people say that Kris resembles Joyce DeWitt of Three's Company fame (some say Michael Jackson) so I just think DW and Joyce should ride on into the reality TV sunset heaven. How ironic is it that they are both considered to resemble characters of actual legit television......

And DW and DeWitt.....scary

I'm starting to ramble.

Also, I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off and I've literally only eaten cookies and candy all day so bring on the Dia-bee-tus.......

The Thirst is Real

Hopelessly Ever After

Great giveaway happening at Hopelessly Ever After

For this Thirsty Thursday, I am going to share with you a concoction that was inspired by Pinterest

  • One gallon of apple cider (I bought mine at the grocery store)
  • About 1 liter of diet ginger ale
  • Smaller bottle size of Goldschlager or Fireball

Pour it all into a pitcher and stir, serve chilled

It's a big hit

False Advertisement

I've got irrational fears, I'm sure a lot of people do.

I'm afraid I'm going to go to prison for doing nothing wrong...

I'm afraid someone is going to stab me in the chest while sleeping on my back..

And I don't like heights...

Not a snowball's chance in hell.......

I could probably go on and on but then you would just think I was neurotic and you should at least read a few of my posts to think that.

But one fear I do have is that my picture is going to be used in a way that I don't want it to be. Like this past weekend my picture was snapped enjoying Fireball, so far I don't think it's online. It's not that I mind promoting a delicious beverage it's just that A. it is probably a very unflattering photo and B. not every future employer enjoys Fireball.

****I was not actually drinking Fireball in the picture :)

The reason this sort of thing concerns me is because I found this article.

In case you don't want to steer your eyes away from Reba K.'s majesty and click the above link, I'll sum it up. A girl let a photographer take her picture a few years ago, photographer turned around and sold it to a stock photo company and the picture was used for an HIV campaign.

The problem is, this girl is not HIV positive, and now she is outraged and suing because she had no idea the photographer sold her image.

I understand her concern, I mean it's like when Jerry Seinfeld couldn't handle going out with the girl who did hemorrhoid ointment commercials or something like that, no one wants to be thought of as the hemorrhoid girl.

It would be one thing if the ad just said "get tested" or "know your rights" but it says clearly insinuates that she is HIV positive.

What do you think? Is it always a risk having your picture taken?

Do Not Grind on Me Robin Thicke

The whole Miley Cyrus VMA thing is over and done with I know, and the fact that I even bring it up means she wins which really doesn't bother me I like her music I just hate her butt.

But, I have decided I don't like Robin Thicke, I think he's creepy. If he would have just kept his mouth shut and not said, "don't blame me, I was the twerkee". Robin Thicke is 36 years old, if I am making up what I think to be catchy little made up words on already made up words when I'm 36 please send me off to live like Nell.......

Then I saw him on some entertainment news outlet and he said with this smug pedo-smile, "We went out there to raise some eyebrows and provoke some energy, so we accomplished our goal."

In other news, I love Vine. There are some hilarious folks out there. A big trend on vine is #grindonme which is this.....

When I first witnessed this trend I was all.....

But as I continued to watch I realized that there are 11-year olds doing this!!!!

I've decided my children will have zero internet access until their 18!

So I have a new minor obsession......

And you're all like "Wow Reba, late to the party again, everyone likes him". Yes I know, I've always liked him but I saw Don Jon last night and my love for JGL catapulted into the heights of Matthew McConaughey.

Typically I don't go for the Guido Juicehead type in fact I loathe the Guido Juicehead type, but if I can ever land a Guido Juicehead who looks like that......well then sign me up for some GYM,TAN,LAUNDRY!!

But with my luck.........

Anyways, go see Don Jon, it's a great movie. I totally did not expect it to turn out like it does which in my opinion makes a movie worth watching!

Highlighting and Contouring: A Memoir

Highlighting and contouring is all the rage, all over Pinterest. Kim Kardashian is a big fan in fact you've probably seen this picture..

That ring though....

Looks so easy right? This picture even shows you how hideous and ugly you are without contouring

SO...me being the follow the trends kinda gal that I am and wanting to be just like Kim K. I decided to tackle this fantastic looking way to do your make up.......I mean if it can make you look THAT good....

I researched the best products and headed to Dollar General, if they didn't have exactly what was called for I improvised

No DG at the DG

For when I'm not walking the runways

I went to contourin and highlightin and followed exactly what North West's mom did

I was pretty happy with the results, I mean I was a beginner and I was feeling flawless

I finished getting ready, was gonna head out the door and realized I was running ahead of time.......Yes!! I can fit a selfie into my morning!!!

And. Oh. My. God........

I must have missed a step.......

So moral of the story, practice make perfect (hopefully) and try it without using the flash......
