Rebound Chick

Tonight I went out with my sis to a local club that has Haitian night on Sundays.  I mainly went to see this Cape Verdean artist perform (Nelson Freitas).  I had a great time dancing.  I am not the best dancer but if the guy is a good leader, it looks so graceful and effortless.

Swap Til You Drop

Here are some of my finds from the Swap.  As you can see, they are all shoes.  I am especially in love with the black knee boots.  If you remember from my last Swap post, I have been wanting black knee boots for as long as possible! Even though I cheated on the challenge, I think it would still be worth it even if I only found these boots.  These plaid kitten heels are soo cute don’t you think?  They’re not something that I would normally buy, but when I saw them I had to pick them up.  I’m not even sure what I can wear with them yet but I can’t wait for the challenge to be over to experiment.  These eggplant shooties (shoes/booties; get with it, lol I make up words all the time) are so hot.  I’ve already imagined wearing them with knit tights or black leggings or even a mini.  The heel isn’t very high but I think these shooties are so flirtatious and fun.  Last and maybe least are these suedish shrug pointy boots.  I’ll start off by admitting that they are too big and I might have been a little rash by grabbing them.  Ok, I’m glad I got that off my chest, but I still wanna wear them and see how they look and fit with some skinny jeans, jeggings or even a mini.  I’ll just wear some thick socks lol.  Have I inspired you to host a swap or go to one??

Ortho Lesson

Today I had my first tightening appointment.  My understanding of the braces process was sooo off, and mind you I ask them like 20 questions at every visit.  So if I your trusted ortho guinea pig also affectionately known as your source; misunderstood how braces are tightened I can only imagine the ideas that you have swimming in your pretty little head.  Lets get some facts straightened out shall we?
1. Little rubber bands are put around each brace to hold the wire to the braces & tooth. (About a week ago a circular piece of plastic came flying out of my mouth!  I had no idea what it was, because I didn’t know I had rubber bands in my mouth.  At the first appointment, I asked about rubber bands but the dental assistant said that rubber bands come later in treatment.  I thought it was undigested food or something, gross & silly I know).
2. Each month the rubber bands are replaced, I had clear ones, but they get stained and yellowish.

3. The tightening process is not done by tightening the wire like I erroneously thought, but by inserting a plastic string around the top two teeth and bottom four teeth (it varies) wrapping it around in a figure eight motion (imagine lassoing a horse) and tying it tight.  It is such a weird feeling to have your teeth being pulled together.  I can’t really explain it.
4. I never realized that it was the different color rubber bands that little kids had in their mouth.  I’m super late with that I know lol. So next month you’re in store for a nice surprise, because I am going to have fun with these bad boys in my mouth.  Stay tuned…
EDITED: So I now know that I am too old to have colored bands :( I had the ortho assistant put colored bands on two of the brackets, and I looked a mess.  So clear bands for me.

It's Raining Men

Disclaimer (My apologies, I can't seem to locate these pics but you can view them by clicking on the link to Tumblr)

That's the song that popped into my head as I was typing this post.  I can't get over how fun these rainboots are.  I always turn my frown upside down when I'm wearing hot pink polka dot boots.  Lets take a looksey down south at my stockings.  I hate stockings, or rather I used to hate stockings as an adolescent  There I said it.  I went to catholic school for 8yrs and I wore a uniform everyday with stockings that sagged at the crotch.  So why am I wearing stockings if I hate them so much you ask?  Well my dears, there aren't stockings, but spidernets.  Yeah so I totally made up that word.  I know I'm not the only one that does it.  Lol.  I feel like I'm wearing an intricate spiderweb in which to snare unsuspecting me (insert evil cackle)

*No fish or spiders were harmed in the making of my stockings.

My love is too strong

This was my first time at Longhorn steakhouse, and although I only had appetizers and drinks with my makome (my soon to be godson’s mom) it was a good dining experience.  The sangria was delish and HUGE!! We had a day date lol.  I treated her to a movie (For Colored Girls) because I am notoriously late, and she ended up waiting 20mins for me at the station.  After the movie we went to a small restaurant for dessert (not a fan, I prefer salt over sugar).
