An Odd & Sexy Arizona State Fan

So I realize this chick isn't a real cheerleader (at least I don't think so), but there is something strangely sexy about a chick that would wear this to a football game. Am I wrong? I just wish we had a better look at her friend.

Mail of the Week (January 24 - 28)

My prize from Softlips Canada Facebook sweepstake: I was one of the 5 lucky winner of  a Softlips Sweet Ravishing Raspberry Moisturizing Lip Balm! It smells great, like real raspberry, not a cheap chemical scent. I'm not sure if I will be able to use it though because I still don't know which ingredient exactly makes my lips react (I get rashes and my lips burn). So far, I've stuck to natural lipbalms just to be sure, but I'm missing on some many great lipbalms because of this!

Coupons from TRESemmé: A while back ago, I filled out a survey on TRESemmé products and they said the reward would be $5 coupons. I guess I didn't understand because I was expecting a $5 coupon to use on any product, but no, I received three coupons to use on three different products! I'm a little disappointed because I'm not sure I will use them )=

Baylor Bear Cheerleaders

I find it fascinating that such a straight-laced school has some of the most gorgeous cheerleaders in all of college athletics. It almost seems unfair for some reason that I can't figure out.

100 Things: Part I

One of my goals for 2011 is to dress a list of 100 things that make me happy. I have seen these posts on quite some blogs (like Sofia's Journal) and I find it very inspiring. I will be posting ten things every month until I reach 100 things.

Alabama Cheerleader Pool Party

Posts might be a little sparse this week, so I'll try to make them good. Today, for instance, we've got some pictures from a little pool party featuring some of the University of Alabama's finest cheerleaders. Like I said, we're going for quality over quantity this week.

CLOSED - Giveaway: Enter My Alpine Weight Loss Secrets Giveaway!

The prize: Alpine Weight Loss Secrets, by Stephan Aschan

I must start by saying that I'm not the type to read diet books, because honestly, I need to gain weight, not lose it! But I was happily surprised to discover that this is not just another diet book, this a lifestyle book. It's not just about loosing weight, it's also about leaving an heathier life. Each chapter is focused on a single goal, so you can read the topic that interests you the most without having to read the whole book.

I like the fact that there's incorporated worksheets to motivate you and keep track of your progess. Stefan's explanations and tips are also easy to understand with illustrations and charts, like the one from Chapter 3 (the best things to eat, the good things to eat and the things to stay away from). Stefan has even included sample menus and yummy recipes (and yes, there's even desserts!). Everything is very clear and the book is easy to read from the start to the end. 

Here's a sneak peek at the back cover:

Game of the Day -- #7 Villanova v. #3 Syracuse

So this match-up loses a little luster with both teams coming off a loss on Monday, but it's still a tilt between 2 of the top teams in the Big East and the country. I'd expect a rough and tough game with somebody winning a close game. Predicition? Not so much.

PS: I've hit my limit on images added to Picasa (the image host Blogger uses), so I've had to start using a new image host. I went with ImageShack, so we'll see how that goes. Please let me know if this becomes a pain in the ass and I'll try to come up with a new solution.



Mail of the Week (January 17 - 21)

 February issue of Cosmopolitan: Ever since I saw her in That 70's Show, I've drooling over Mila Kunis. Isn't she gorgeous? And what a bout that dress?

 Free pens from Rubbermaid: A while back ago (in September, if I remember well), I received an offer to try 3 Rubbermaid pens for free. You could choose whcih ones you wanted to try, and here's mine:
  • Uni-Ball Jetstream in Red
  • Sharpie Pen in Blue
  • Liquid Paper Correcting Tape DryLine Grip

Unfortunetaly, because of an over whelming demand for their samples, supplies have been exhausted.
