The moment I accepted my life was a beautiful, chaotic, sometimes a little-messy-but-always-entertaining circus was the moment I felt a true release.

There's no sense in fighting the madness, but I've picked up a few tricks to keep the show going along the way.

I hope they work as well for you as they have [and still do] for me.

sassy starter : a poem from a non-wife.

Silly boys from all around, try to take her out on the town.
Suave boys with their smiles so bright, try to bed her for the night.
Stupid boys that never call, leave her banging her head up against the wall.
Simple boys, she over looks. She’d rather get lost in a reading a book.
Sexy boys often get her in trouble; those nights tend to start with Jack (make it a double).
All these boys – and the stories that go with them – provide entertainment, but there’s still somethin’ missing.
The boy who takes her breath away, she still has yet to meet;
The one who has the passion in his eyes and sweeps her off her feet.
In time he’ll make his appearance in her life …..
but for now she’ll sit back and enjoy the journey of being a non-wife.

music snack – lovefool

Here’s to staying in for a girls’ night on a Saturday night, eating entirely too much cheese, consuming more than your share of wine, borrowing an 8Tracks playlist titled “F*#@ Yeah 90s!” and dancing around a living room singing

Lovefool by The Cardigans

I’ll cheers to that any day.

music snack: sing along on this one.

It is my finding that no matter where a person is – Subway, the Corner Store, a local Shrimp Shack, etc – when this song comes on they can’t help but sing along. (even if it’s to themselves) It’s just one of those songs. A tragedy if you DON’T sing along. You waist a completely perfect sing along song.

Bonnie Raitt – Something to Talk About

I hope you took a few minutes to sing along with Bonnie.

And if you didn’t, I hope you press play again. You’re welcome.

music snack *oh wa oo

I originally posted this song on November 16th, 2011. You know I rarely re-post a Music Snack, but I feel this one is more than deserving of a re-post. Turn it up loud and put it on repeat. Trust me on this one. Have I ever steered you wrong before? (don’t answer that.) Enjoy ….

Florence + The Machine – Shake It Out

You’re welcome. As always.

music snack *only girl (in the world)

It’s amazing how much of an extra boost this song can give you … whether it’s working out, walking in to a club, getting ready for a presentation, or preparing yourself for a night under the tents at Charleston Fashion Week.

Low and behold (I’m not even really sure what that means, but I feel like it fits on this one.) I’ve played it in all of those instances and many more. We’ve all got our bag of tricks, this song just happens to be one of mine.  Enjoy…..

Rihanna – Only Girl (In the World)

*I’m heading to CFW tonight as a +1 for Andrew. And if you know me, you know this is definitely stepping out of my comfort zone. Fish out of water? That might be a bit of an understatement. Bag of tricks up my sleeve? Always and forever 😉

See you at the tents, loves.
