elizabethanytv: playing "it wasn't me" with shaggy

Remember when Shaggy walked in on me dressed up as Cupid? After that, we played a little game of "It Wasn't Me." [AKA Never Have I Ever]

I feel like I was admitting more than he was, but here it goes... along with a clip of him performing the song, duh.

He was easily one of my favorite people I've ever met. SO cool, down to earth, and thankful for everything. He hasn't been gone, he's been winning awards for reggae music, but I'm pumped for his new song that could take over the summer.

podcast: the 31 year old virgin

When my friend said he wanted to bring his virgin friend in to the show... I had a ton of ideas in my head but I really didn't know that anything would be as good as I was imagining. Could I hook him up with someone listening? Should I make-out with him in the studio? It was all up in the air.

They came in Friday night and I could tell he was not into opening up on air any time soon. We started chatting though, and the microphone was positioned so perfectly that I had to hit record before telling him what we were talking about was for the show.

I can't even begin to comprehend the things that he was saying! Nor can I explain how baffled and entertained I was by all of it, especially his laugh.

Nothing needs to be further explained... it's all within the podcast. Enjoy.

That's real life. All of it. He's hopefully going to be going out with this chic who lives within ten minutes of him, and we'll get an update after that happens.

People actually live life like that. And he goes out and has friends and everything!

giveaway! jackpot candles

Who doesn't love a good surprise?! Well.. some surprises. Gift surprises.

The fun of getting those little mystery bags as a kid is now in the form of a candle. Jackpot candles don't just have rings inside, but all kinds of jewelry! And the best part is- if you do want a ring, you give them your ring size so it's guaranteed to fit.

I got two of them, one with a ring and one with any of the other stuff, in "Cherry Blast" and "Ocean Breeze" scents. I definitely like the Ocean Breeze one better. Maybe it's because I just want the summer to finally be here, or maybe the Cherry Blast smells a little too much like cherry candy to me. Both did a pretty good job of smelling up my apartment, though.

If you're hoping to get these candles and your prizes on the inside quickly, that probably won't happen unless you accidentally leave it burning all day and overnight like I did. Woops. It definitely takes several hours to get to it, maybe about 10. The good news is- the candle is probably only... 1/5 of the way gone so it should last a while!

I ended up getting a pretty pink ring and a necklace I really love with a clear gem pendant thing. You can go on their website to get the appraisal; each of mine are worth $18.

The great news is- they want me to give YOU one! So if you want a Jackpot of your choosing, there are a couple ways to enter to win!:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

You have until March 17 at 11:59pm to enter as many times as you'd like! Good luck and have fun!

And you should probably get a head start on picking out which one you'd like... at where you'll also see that they have jewelry up to $5000, and use all natural soy and other goodness.

what i've been wearing 030415

It's time for a little truth bomb. 

A lot of the reason I've been slacking on posting outfits is because of gaining a little more than the typical "winter weight." This is pretty typical for me after a break-up. Chocolate just seems so much more satisfying than a piece of broccoli. I'm not looking for "oh shut up, you look fine" or anything like that. That makes things awkward. I'm stating facts. I know what I've gained and I'm working on getting back down cuz like... bikini weather.

Anyway, enough excuses. Luckily I can work some angles when I take selfies. 

I got these new boots from UrbanOG and this was the easiest outfit to throw together. Whenever I get new shoes, I suck at doing anything besides matchy-matchy.
-shirt was thrifted
-Express jeans from TJ Maxx
-scarf from Groupon Goods

I got this polka dot shirt and knew it'd be great for layering, but it's also chiffon, so it'll be good alone too! I was also really excited about my hair. Somehow after I put the bobby pins in the same way I always do, it loosened up and looked like there  to hold in the soft braid.
-top from Target
-Express jeans
-jacket from random NYC boutique
-scarf from Love Culture
-H&M earrings
-shoes from SEARS! [I say that all caps because I'm shocked that I found one of my favorite shoes for this season there. They're so comfy, cute, and make my feet look small which is key for a bish with size 10.]

A random Friday night outfit mixin' and matchin' the black and white!
-blazer and lace tank from TJ Maxx
-Express jeans
-Forever21 booties
-BlueLans earrings

And my truly "I don't give an eff" outfit... this was my first time wearing leggings as pants in public. Really. 
-top and leggings from Charlotte Russe
-boots from JustFab
-spikey earrings from BlueLans

There's a mini catch up. Now I'm going to get my ass in the gym because you can't complain about such things if you're not doing anything about it. 


PS it's a milestone day! My blog has hit 3 million views! I don't know if that seems like a lot to you or not, but I'm pretty pumped. Thanks for continuing to support, even in my not-so-active times!

diy chevron and jeweled nails

I've been really slacking on this here blog. I wish I had a good excuse beyond focusing on other things. This has always been my baby and it always will.... but a new bossman in the office has brought a couple changes around here that I'm getting used to. [Good changes. I'm very excited for this!]

Anyway, I may not have had time to blog, but I had time to do my nails... and I'm pretty obsessed with them. 

The pink was done in the salon and I wish I had remembered the color but I failed you and for that I am sorry.

I added some gold glitter to the one nail and then a chevron Jamberry applique. The triangle gems came from BlueLans! A whole pack of different ones for $2. Holla. 

As you can kinda see, I'm still not perfect at knowing how much glue to use for the gems, and my Jamberry could use some more smoothing out, but like... ADD. And they still look great. Also, lotion, Elizabethany. Ever heard of it?
