Powerful Stuff it just me?

I am totally obsessed with this commercial.

I know that it has been in rotation for a while, but I just cannot get over it.

Is it the song? The nostalgia? The pretty girl? The HOT guy?

Probably. Probably. Eh. YESSS!!!!!!

It comes on and I am transfixed. A sense of wistfulness takes me over.

I can't be the only one. Just can't.

Le sigh...

After seeing the above photo of my gorgeous friend Amber (I mean, really. She is just so pretty.) I have been obsessing over finding a high waisted bathing suit. 
But where in tarnation do you find a cute one?

I feel like the ones that I see are frumpy and not cute. 

I would ask Amber, but this is an American Apparel romper, I am quite sure.

Suggestions welcome!

All I am going to say, is that I kind of wish that I was marrying Kate Middleton.

I have always considered myself to be extremely lucky; in other words, blond. Everyone wants to be blond, right?
  • They have more fun
  • Gentleman prefer them
  • They make great lawyers.
  • There is a category of jokes written JUST for them.
I mean, blond's are tops!

But today, I cannot help admiring some red headed beauties.

 I wonder if my hair stylist would let me go red?

The Birth of a Gypsy Robot

As some of you may (or may not) remember, this little blog of mine used to go by a different name.

"I'm either really funny...or Bat Shit Crazy"

But alas, those Bat Shit crazy days are over. Mostly because I thought having "shit" in a blog title might be a little crass. And if there is anything that I have learned from my mum, it is that ladies should not curse. Unless they are very VERY angry at someone who has:
  • stolen your parking space
  • bought the last Sprinkles red velvet cupcake
  • worn the very same dress as you at the very same event
Otherwise, it is just inexcusable.

So why Gypsy Robot?

Well it is quite simple.

  1. I was at a Stevie Nicks concert about a week ago and she was singing "Gypsy" and I got to thinking, "Wow. Gypsy's are really the coolest."
  2. I <3 robots. A lot. As you can see in my banner. I like to get up close and personal with them.
And alas a new blog name was born. I hope that it is more exciting than Bat Shit Crazy blog. But only time will tell.

Warning: This is a long post about feet. Gross.

A couple of weeks ago I was strolling through the produce isle of Whole Foods Market (to get to the bakery, of course) when a very cute girl stopped me.

"Oh my gosh!!! I love those shoes!!! Where did you get them!?!?"

I coyly thanked her, looked down and almost died. LOOK AT MY FEET!


Yes. My shoes were cute. The feet that were in them were a whole other story. And while I was looking down, I checked out the feet of my compliment-or. DANGIT! They were perfectly painted the palest of pinks. A FAR cry from my chipped red nail polish from a 2 month old pedi.

I felt efemulated!! (I just made up a word! Like emasculated...but feminized?)

Why didn't I have those cute pink toes?!

Oh. Ya. Because I am broke(ish) and cannot afford to have some poor lady in a squat stool buff my feet every 10 days. But that doesn't mean that I can't do it myself right?

So that is just what I did. Even though I am terrible at anything that includes nail polish.

For starters I needed to work on the foundation of my nails.


I used the following products to make them silky smooth from Paris Presents!

While these sets might look like something out of a second hand Hello Kitty, they actually have some good stuff on the inside.

I put myself on a strict daily hand and foot regimine.


And I must say that it made all the difference.

Now all I needed to do was put some paint on those bad boys and we were ready to go!

I LOVE all Essie nail polish. They have cute colors. The thing that you hold on to to paint your nails is perfectly round, funny shapes throw me off. AND sometimes, you can get away with just one coat and they look PROFESH!

So needless to say, I have been roaming around Whole Foods ever since, hoping to see that girl who complimented my shoes. I need a second chance! I have cute feet too!
