My awesome friend Melanie always comes to work in the hottest shoes… and it seemed like everyday, I was always saying “HOT SHOES” to her.
I’m sitting at my desk thinking “gosh damn.. this woman is so busy with all her endeavors and what not, how does she have time to go shopping for hot shoes???”
Finally after about a week, she says to me… “you know i get all my shoes from Shoedazzle.com”
I thought maybe she just goes shopping online, BUT she went on talking and told me about their monthly membership program. oooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
So I hopped on over there and checked out what it was about and I was SOLD! (if you wanna know, go there and read. It’s simple. Don’t make me type it all out)
This was last week. I filled out the profile survey and a few days later an email was sent to me with 5 different shoes to choose from… and this is what I chose for the month of September:
Minerva Shoes (September Choice)
What do ya’ll think? Hot or Not? Of course I don’t know how comfy these will be until they get here… BUT the great thing is, if I don’t like it… I can return it hassle free🙂

Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long… had a bunch of stuff going on (nothing major) just a lot of little things, so I decided I need to get my shit straight before I start broadcasting my life again.
So… school has finally started :-( It’s a slow semester for me. I’ve got 2 classes:
- Monday: Econ1
- Tuesday: Business Communications
Business is going great as far as www.thetraincase.com is concerned. (don’t forget to visit the site <–)
AAAAAAAAAAAND… I got a new job! yay! :-) I’m in a new office now… surrounded by WONDERFUL, POSITIVE people. I couldn’t be happier!
Sorry for the idleness… my life is in teh suck mode right now….
YES!!! I finally overcame my fear of matte eyeshadows and I’m ecstatic! Thanks to the L’oreal HIP Matte Duos, I was able to successfully do some complete eye looks. The colors they put together in the duos matched PERFECTLY.. :-) Here are some of the pictures I took one night… please excuse the brows…. they needed to be plucked… BAD…

Here's both... Left: PERKY Right: ANIMATED

Here's both... Left: STRIKING Right: PASSION & SKETCH
Been working on my blending skills and I must say I’m improving :-) I’ve got 2 more HIP Matte Duos I gotta do a look with, but I’ll save those for another post.

Sundays are usually our Fundays!🙂
Today we drove up the PCH to Alberto’s & ate Mexican food til our tummies nearly burst. We had their bomb a$$ Carne Asada fries (the ones I blogged about a while back). I also wanted to try something new from their menu so I got a Carne Asada taco. It had soooo much meat in it that I was able to make 2 tacos cuz they usually serve each taco with 2 tortillas.
We HAD to walk off all that damn food we ate so we drove n drove til we got to the Long Beach harbor. We walked around the path along the water for a while. Then we sat and watched boats go by for some time as the sun slowly started to sink lower and lower from the sky. We got up and started heading back to the car, but while on the pier, the announcer said the last harbor boat tour was about to depart and that it’s usually the best one cuz you get to watch the sun set while you’re out on the ocean. We decided “why not” & got 2 boarding passes and got on the boat.
OMG! I’m so glad we went! It was awesome… Here are some pictures I took. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera. All I had was my cell phone so I made do with what I have. If you ask me, I would say “not bad” for cell phone pics!
View from the table we first sat at
I think these are called pedal boats. They use em a lot in Mississippi.
We decided to give up our table and stand along the front of the boat for a better view.
Long Beach Light House
Little harbor town. Bunch of restaurants known for their Sea Food. We've gotta go back and try it out!
The moon was out on one side of the boat!
While the sun was still out on the other side of the boat!
Here's the little island where they manufacture humans... J/K (i need to stop watching movies) It's a pump island. They unload all the oil they bring from other countries onto lil pump islands like this.
It was definitely an interesting day. After the boat ride, we headed home…
BUT our day wouldn’t be complete without a trip to YogurtLand!!! Sorry no pic of my froyo as I ate it faster than you can say FUNDAY!
Tired as heck. Gonna leave you guys for the night… Hope you enjoy the pics!

Oh My! how time flies… Just updating this to let you all know I’m still alive! :-) ehh.. nothing exciting going on for me at the moment. This summer is kind of a bust. It’s so hot will & I don’t really wanna be outside. Since this summer is slow, let me tell you about last year’s summer!
So… Summer 2008… Will & I were on a MISSION! we hit up a different beach EVERY WEEKEND. I kid you not. It was awwwwwwesome! The farthest we reached was Pismo Beach which was 3 hours away. That also ended up being my favorite beach as well. The pictures are on my non working laptop, but I’m gonna get it fixed so for sure I’ll share some of the beach pictures by the end of this summer. Oh yeah, Diann came with us to almost every single beach. There was a couple she had to miss out on though because she had to go on her Alaska Cruise…
We’ve only got one car this summer & she’s not very reliable for long drives. Although Dora (my explorer) has never failed me (thank God), I wouldn’t risk taking her on such long drives at her age. So now, we’re shopping for another one. Will said if we can get one before the summer ends, he’ll definitely take me up to San Francisco cuz I haven’t been up there in sooooo long. I’ll visit my aunts & uncles and most likely stop by San Jose to see Caroline🙂
Alright I’m gonna go for now. Gotta get ready for work…
I leave you with a beautiful Malibu Summer Sunset (not taken by me)
Soooo I fell asleep early last night like around 12am. Lately I’ve been sleeping like 4 hours a night so by nature I woke up at like 4:30am. gaaaaah….
I couldn’t get back to sleep so I decided to just stay up and wait til around 8am. I told my brother about the $1 parking lot sale on La Brea a couple weeks back and figured I might as well take him today since I’m actually up this early on a Sunday. I went to go wake him up & we left… still in our pajamas. We finally get there and it was all womens clothing. Now keep in mind, I’ve never been there before… only heard of it and didn’t know what to expect. I thought the stuff would have been new. But… as soon as we walked up… the smell of old vintage clothes greeted us. We took one look, turned around and went back to the car. We actually went there to look for some shirts for him, but it was all girls clothes anyways. *gag* -BIG FAIL
The next cross street was Melrose… so I figured I’d go to the Sunday Flea Market @ Fairfax High on the corner of Melrose & Fairfax. We get there and you had to pay to get it. Good thing we had our student IDs. It only cost $1. Once we got in… we started walking around and realized it was just people’s crap that they couldn’t bear to throw away. I looked at a couple things, but these were not yard sale prices. They were OVERPRICED attic crap. Since we paid to go in, we decided to just walk around the whole thing. Same ol’ Same ‘ol…. Finally we decided to head to the exit. I thought this whole thing was gonna be a complete bust. On the way out we spotted new sun glasses for sale so he stopped to take a look at some. He ended up picking up a pair that’s completely blacked out dark. He said it would be perfect for riding his bike because the sun can blind you (I wouldn’t know cuz I use my visor in the car, and I haven’t ridden a bike in God knows how long). -SEMI FAIL
On our way back home, we drove by Pink’s Hot Dog stand and saw that there was no line. I’ve never even seen without a line that slithered around the facility so we had to stop & get something. So there we ordered Spicy Polish Sausages at 9:45 in the morning (yummmm). -WIN
After we finish eating, we see Target & Ulta so I decide to stop & check out the Ulta sale that started today. We see people inside, but when we tried to open the door, it was locked! Turns out they don’t open til 11 on Sundays and it was only 10:28… we had no patience for this shenanigans & left. -FAIL
Finally I drop him off at home and I call Patrick (my nail guy) and he tells me “If you come now, I do you nail fo you.” So ofcourse I jump on the freeway and head on over there. The second I get there, he boots the girl @ his station to another station and had someone else finish her mani. He does mines exactly like how I wanted them done and as always, my color choices was a WIN.🙂
Manicure of the week: China Glaze – Black Diamond (2 coats), Orly – Love Each Other on top (1 coat), then topped with Seche Vite Top Coat.
It’s now 1:07pm and the sand man is starting to kick my ass… dammit… this is gonna mess up my sleeping rotation again… -FAIL
