The Fashion Blog

You’ll be happy to know that M made it home in one piece, and helped me cure my boredom. But then he went to work and I got bored again. I tried eating one of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups he brought me from America, but it didn’t help. I tried eating another one to see if it was just a matter of quantity, but I was still pretty bored. After a third Peanut Butter Cup I was still bored, and also a little nauseous, so I figured peanut butter probably wasn’t the solution.

I did a load of laundry but was still bored. Then I did the dishes, and suddenly got even more bored. Eventually I had to bring out the big guns, my nail polish. Out of pure self-preservation I occupied myself with painting my nails the perfect shade of green. I say perfect because my mom hates it and I love it.

Even a man could pull off this shade of green.

Then I washed my hair and very quickly realized I should have started with the hair and then moved on to the nail polish. Lesson learned. And from now on this blog will focus exclusively on hair care products, nail polish and “Today’s Outfit.”

Clean hair.

Luckily M and I have promised to babysit my 14-year old brother all weekend while my parents are away. I’m looking forward to a weekend full of broken curfews, fast food, underage drinking, smoking and maybe even a break-up or two. Everything is highly dramatic when you’re 14. Come Monday I’ll be happy to be bored again. *


  1. Maybe you could convince your brother to do his nails. That might keep him out of trouble. I dunno.

  2. You could of gotten online and talked to me!!! I miss you babe!

  3. If eating chocolate doesn't do it for you, I'm worried Ziva. I wish M could just stay home and entertain you all the time. I wish Alex could stay home and entertain me all the time too. But, alas, somebody has to make some money to keep us in chocolates and champagne and vodka and gin as the case may be. I love 14 year olds. They are drama queens and kings! Perfect!

  4. One whiff of nail polish fumes and you start seeing giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They dance and sing and like to have a good old time. Maybe I should stay away from nail polish for a while. Did you ever notice that nail polish and Polish are spelled the same. What's up with that?

  5. nonamedufus: You know, he just might agree to let me paint his nails if he knew our mother hated the color.

    Jenn: Of course! Why didn't I do that?? Things are never boring when you're around.

    Linda: We should just get together and entertain each other while the men are out making money.

    Lauren: I didn't see giant Reese's Peanut Butter Cups even though I totally sniffed the nail polish. My nail polish is clearly faulty. I should buy some more. Not nail Polish, though, that would be totally unethical.

  6. My limit with those Reese's things is one.

    I'd be pulling my own hair out if I had to watch that crowd, who do they think they are, reality show Californians?

  7. Everyday Goddess: I wish my life was more like a Californian reality show. I bet I wouldn't be bored. What with rehab and the surprise baby and all.

  8. Dear God! I'm pregnant! I wonder who did it?

    California is fun for sure! We will just let the boys toil while we lollygag! I can't wait!

  9. Yum...Reese's. If you have extras, send them on.

    I don't think Peanut Butter and nail polish would mix. That makes me queasy just thinking about it. ;-)

    I love your clean hair. Purty. Purty.

    Bored? Come on over. I need someone to sweep my driveway.


  10. I will gladly take the rest of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups off of your hands.

    I'll send you my shipping address.

  11. Linda: Well apparently San Francisco is full of zombies, so my guess is that you're having a very pretty zombie baby. Don't worry, though, we'll all love it like it were alive.

    Reffie: While sweeping your driveway sounds like loads of fun, I think I might just have another go at mixing nail polish and peanut butter.

    Moooooog: Peanut Butter Cups are on their way! And I added a bottle of the prettiest nail polish, just for you.

  12. As a parent of a 14 year old, yes, EVERYTHING is SO dramatic all the time!! HA!

    Love the black nail polish. Hope ti wasn't totallt ruined by washing your hair.

  13. meleah: Oh my god, I can't even imagine how dramatic everything must be like in your house with a 14-year old! Good luck, that's all I have to say. And one good thing about being incredibly bored, is that once you've ruined the nail polish by washing your hair, you can start over on the nails and easily make another 4 minutes go by.
