A Day in the Life. Public Service Announcements.

Hey guys!! 


Hope you're all having an awesome week so far! Thank goodness it's almost Friday.

Some public service Announcements for you people:

1. I believe shorts are meant to cover more than your undergarments. If your boy short panties are hanging out of your shorts, you should probably invest in either some different underwear or different shorts. Preferably different shorts.

2. I've added some new prints & photographs to the shop over the past few weeks. Yay. Get 15% off through August 1st with code: BLOGGY15
3. Canned chicken is good for chicken salad, but not chicken enchiladas. I was desperate last week and didn't want to go to the store. Just doing my duty of warning you all so that you don't make the same mistake I did.

4. I am giving away a bracelet here. Entries are low, so you could win. Boom.
5. Thin is not always healthy, and not everyone can be thin. Please quit with this "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." Yeah, and I'm sure you'll be saying that when you die of problems caused by anorexia. Pay attention to your body type. If you're naturally bigger, nothing you can do will make you a stick, so don't kill yourself trying.

Last but not least... The following conversation with one of my besties is pretty much a daily occurrence in our lives. Especially when my husband steals my phone.
Happy Thursday!!

hahaha bootie shorts should just stay at home. period. i don't wanna see some saggy butt staring at me when i'm walking behind them. ew.

Amanda Cobb said...

Equally disturbing shorts trend: where the pocket flaps stick out past the bottom hem. What is WITH that?! Why does anyone think that's ok or looks good?!

Loving all you PSAs.

Oh the shorts one makes me want to wax on. Ladies, when you reach a certain age (and if you wonder you're already there) STOP with the shorts already. Same thing if your thighs are the size of hams. Capris are your new shorts.

And, this isn't about shorts but my brain went here, bras and g-string undies are NOT fashion accessories, they should NEVER be visible, not even their straps.

Thank you for sharing your soap box with me.

Alana Christine said...

COMPLETELY agree with the shorts thing! And the skinny thing--I like my curves! haha

Zia Blue said...

haha, your text conversation reminds me of some of my friends! randomness is the best ;)

I was JUST talking to my friend yesterday about how ABSURD the "Nothing taste as good as skinny feels" b/s on pinterest. B/S.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I HATE that quote... "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." Ugh. Gross. I'm a curvy girl. I'll always been curvy. And I'm okay with that. If I was super skinny I'd be sick. Not good.

And I SO agree with you on the shorts thing. There was a girl in my restaurant last night with the shortest shorts I have ever seen. I'm surprised they covered anything. Ew.

Alyx, seriously canned chicken? I didn't even know such a thing existed and now I'm going to try my hardest to wipe it from my brain

Kayla fromSealedWithAKay said...

#1 and #5 Totally true. Thank you- hopefully you got the message out to everyone who needs to know those things! Hehe!

xo Kayla

Love the public service announcements. And I agree... shorts should never be that short. It's not flattering on anyone.

Meg {henninglove} said...

i love that bracelet, i really really hope that i win. ugh canned chicken ok thanks for the note to never put it in enchiladas but always on salad

Becky said...

Thanks for shouting out the giveaway! The bracelet is super cute. And yes, no booty shorts please. They're a big thing in college and I'm just like "Cover up, girls!!!"

Hello! Great blog! The last post is very interesting and beautiful! Let's follow each other, if you agree, then let me know!)))

Kelly said...

HAHAH Awesome conversation. Loved reading it. And you've got some great prints!

Liz Brown said...

Yay Nebraska! That print is undeniably awesome.

Georgina said...

Bahaha those texts!!! Love the SPA's seriously people do things without thinking through the long-term consequences. It's so much more important to be healthy then to look like a clothes hanger.

Elsha Bodily said...

haha ta-tas! Here I thought I was the only person in the world who said that word :) Love all of this

Allison Taylor said...

Love your new prints! Definitely going to check them out. Is your major graphic design?

Kristen said...

Your text convo with your bestie is ironically just like something my hubby & I do with my BFF's, lol! Silly!!

Sarah Kate said...

LOL! Man goodies!!? What?!

The whole stick thin debate drives me nuts, too. Doesn't everybody know strong is the new skinney!? Get FIT people, not SICKLY!

Kristen Seuberling said...

I'm worried that you thought canned chicken was a good idea ever for anything.

Healthy is hot!

Now I understand why you're okay with me jumping from topic to topic, to topic... your husband seems to lead your friends on wild goose chases through your life! And I think he was lying if he called you a crappy wife... unless he was trying to eat something made with canned chicken at the time. Sorry Alyx, but that's bad.

pahahahahaha that iPhone conversation may be one of my faves of all time
