Ally: Basically, if it wasn’t for L-A, this blog would be called, “Whiney Ally and her tales about effing daycare illnesses”. It’s so tantalizing, truly.
What cheered me up today, while balancing conference calls with taking care of my sick boy who found tossing craisins over the baby gate ridiculously entertaining, was this little ditty (thanks with all my heart to Lainey who flagged it for me. Not personally, but for her millions of readers.:
“Have you been drinking? I’ll drive.”
ARE YOU DYING? I’m dying. So we’re all going, right? To keep this fashion related, Ryan’s point about wearing a 44 when you should be wearing a 42 is bang-on. Seriously, guys. Baggy suits are up there with plastic shizz. And you know how we feel about that.
Favourite item of the week for Ally (speaking of myself in third person) is this beautiful, darling blazer:
Speaking of Smythe. I feel it’s very up my alley. Excuse the pun.
Crappy Video of the Week:
Crappy? NOT EVEN. Although where did her dance moves go? I miss them. The swaying from side-to-side? My 19 month old can do that. Better even.
L-A: I won’t make fun of Britney’s video. Only because it would make Ally cry if I did. Instead, I will say certainty that I am very much on board for this Ryan Gosling eye candy of a movie. It really is like he’s photoshopped! I think that trailer kicks the ass of the other rom-com I was thinking of seeing.
Oh judge all you want. I like corny rom-coms and I won’t apologize for it. That movie is exactly what it promises to be: sassy independent girl ends up falling for the dude in the end and it’s all quirky and shit. They make fun of Katherine Heigl (for Ally’s benefit), but same ending as every Katherine Heigl movie (except, ending up with Justin Timberlake is far preferable than a puffy Gerard Butler). Minus the flash mob scene (because I really, truly hate those things), I believe I will totally enjoy this movie over a kids pack (which, really, is the best bang for your buck at the theatres if you’re not packing milk duds in your purse).
I’m going to join Ally on the Smythe love this week. Because really, this jacket and that top were made for me:
I mean, really. It just screams, “L-A! You need to own me! Now!”
I also need it because it fits with my theory that a good blazer or jacket is all you need to keep from looking like a complete wreck. Trust me. At any point this year, if I found myself pulling an all nighter and dragging my sorry ass into school, the only thing that would save me from looking like the sole survivor of a train wreck was a jacket. I’d come in, deep dark circles poorly concealed and folks would say, “hey L-A, you’re all dressed up!” when really, I was wearing an old shirt and jeans with a cute jacket. While Bryce and Lisa say put a bird on it, I say put a jacket on it. Throw a jacket on and you are good to go, every time. Trust. (School friend Ellie took my advice the other day and same thing. Jeans and a t-shirt were magically transformed into totally cute outfit).
Non-sequiter of the week is the thing I most want this week:
Seriously, it’s like they bred a weinerdog with a housecat and made a new and super adorable stumpy legged creature. Don’t you just want to put a sweater on him and take him for a walk? Where do you even find such a squishy, adorable little creature. My guess is Japan. They’ve got some seriously cute, round cats over there.
