Bought this on a whim from Barnes & Noble (which has always been better than Borders!) and have been glued to its pages whenever a free second in my day opens up. Seriously, it gets you hooked, well as soon as you understand the introduction....but then the author truly gets you wanting to know more & more each page. It kills me that I have a huge paper due tomorrow and I have to take a break from "the girl on fire" :)
Anyways, I'm pretty sure these books/series are or will get popular in no time. That being said, filming has already started for the movie to be release in 2012!
"Twenty-four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives. In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying ﬁght to the death - televised for all of Panem to see.
Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love"
My husband found the entire show for me online, and I've spent the past few days totally obsessed with "Joy"-sey...aka Jersey!
One of the episodes featured a hair & makeup competition among the cast, and I totally loved this hair-do by the Glam Fairies.
Isn't it just so elegant. I like updo's that are loose, have volume...and not pulled tightly back like a typical prom-do. Crispy curls, yuck!
If you haven't watched this show, you're definitely missing out on Jersey Style. The blond on the right is the "Glam Fairy" and supposedly the Queen of Wedding Makeup, especially the smokey eye. Alexa is pretty cocky & a witch, but her work is flawless. I got curious & wanted to check out herGLAM FAIRY WEBSITE, lol her company actually breaks down the question of What the F is a Glam Fairy?
My husband took me out for the entire day & spoiled me like crazy. So many things to show, even MORE things waiting in the store for my return.
First off I found these on the clearance shelf:
Sooo Cute! Boys had those denim diapers & girls got these pretty prints. Yes I stocked up & my husband thought I was crazy. My little wiggle worm already wears size 2!
Target has some really nifty things for babies, Walmart needs to step up their game. I bought my daughter a whole bunch of cool things, but of course they aren't as cool as these (lol):
It's A TEN
I've always wanted to try this & finally got my opportunity when I had my hair trimmed a few weeks ago. So while scanning the hair department I found the product line & had to get it. It smells so good, plus I remembered how soft it made my hair feel after I left the salon.
why a ten???
1. repairs dry, damaged hair
2. adds shine
4. controls frizz
5. seals and protects hair color
6. prevents split ends
7. stops hair breakage
8. creates silkiness
9. enhances natural body
10. heat protectant (for use with flat irons)
Yummy Yummy Yummy, it smells so good, salon good! lol. I can't wait to use it after I wash my hair. The only thing that irritated me, was that since we live in Hawaii, it's pretty pricey. Like this is my first and last bottle until I take a trip to the mainland :)
The toes-ies have been needing a change of color, and I love bright shades all over them.
It seems like a bubblegum pink on here, but its actually almost a close toss up between coral and neon pink, if that makes sense. I just got finished with my paint job :)
There were a few more hair products I needed to restock on, but nothing that great.
But that's when we headed to Alamoana and made a stop at Aldo's.
First the Aldo Accessory store
I walked into this fabulous store & was totally reminded of shopping memories in New Zealand. My husband is from Auckland, so I was able to take a trip with him back home. The stores there are way more awesome than here. The little girl in me jumped for joy as I scanned the walls and shelves of Aldo's accessories. Mahie was looking too. She enjoyed the feather earrings.
Then we made our way to Aldo's the shoe store:
They were having a yellow tag clearance sale PLUS an ADDITIONAL 30% off
There were shoes galore! I'm beginning to invest in quality shoes, which do come with a price. But, I'm just tired of paying for cheap shoes that hurt my feet or wear down easily. I'm starting with heels that can go with anything. Picked up some black Nine West's the other week (Also on Sale, love a bargain). These are comfy, still need to break them in though. They seem kind of dark, but they're actually lighter. Next pay check, I'm heading back. Can you believe a lady complimented me on these shoes as I tried them on. Yet as soon as I put them down to get ready to purchase, she almost tried to take them from me. How dare you mid-life crisis woman, but thanks for the compliments :)
No h.w. for this Student-Mommy tonight. Tomorrow feels like a "email-teacher-sick-not-coming-class-but-really-i-just-wanna-play-with-my-baby" kind of day :)
