Adulting Requires Alcohol

 

Angelism: Nothing prepared me for adulting more than a little (or a lot of) alcohol!

Hands down this is my favorite shirt and it speaks volumes of exactly how I feel. This top was kindly gifted to me by a bestie Yasmin who knows my personality inside and out! Truth is, I’m a fun party girl at heart. Not in a hot mess, wasted, can’t get my life together way; but a let’s rage and have fun tonight like rock-stars because responsibility will strike again soon! Sadly, that soon is always sooner than I prefer.

Monday – Friday, working for the man, abiding by all the darn rules of life, and living responsibly, I have to stick to a strict schedule. I eat healthy meals, drink lots of water, put myself to bed on time, and reluctantly put on my big girl panties every day. I stay focused and driven, lead my team, and care for those who need me. Every week with a smile, I power through all the little requirements of my big fat adult life: my job, maintaining relationships, paying rent, filtering through the stack of bills and contracts, whatever it is, I get my shit done. But, come Friday night, look out because I will be ready to drop it like it’s hot!

I don’t promote alcholism, but…. I do believe everything is good for you in moderation. I simply cram my daily 1-2 drinks of moderation into only my weekend days because adult beverages are yummy and I usually want a half dozen or more. Whether it is wine and champagne, beer and shots, or a fresh fruity cocktail, a good drink tastes delicious and it takes the edge off. A couple drinks opens people up, generates energy, and often leads to fun and some pretty entertaining memories. In a nutshell, best part of being an adult for me is being able to buy liquor and get into bars so that I may enjoy an adult night of whatever the hell I want.

So, cheers to all those like me who appreciate a fun-filled Blackout Friday, Saturday to Forget, or Sunday Funday Bubbly Brunch! I do not judge your desire to have bottomless mimosas with breakfast. Alcohol makes being an adult a little bit more manageable.


Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper a couple?

Angelism: Attraction is hard to hide. Even a simple crush can be obvious. Don’t be blind to these connections in your own life.

know nothing of these two fabulous celebrities personally, but I recognize crushing, goo-goo eyes when I see it! Does anyone else notice the way Gaga looks at Bradley? I cannot be the only one who thinks this. Truly, in my most intimate of moments, I’m not sure I have ever gushed with such intensity for someone, especially publicly. Thus far in the media they are claiming it’s admiration, an instant friendship, and a genuine connection; I’m calling bullshit and stating my theory is that this is (or was) hot and heavy, between the sheets, total infatuation.

This could likely be another Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie awkward situation.  The difference here though is I do not feel that Bradley is as interested in Gaga as one may think. I get the vibe of He’s Just Not That Into You, and  that he is playing nice during award season to maintain the image of their sincere bond and commitment to the story and work. I think Bradley already tapped that ass and is thinking he can ride this out and move along when the buzz of the movie and soundtrack fades.

Don’t get me wrong, I love both of these celebs. I think they are extremely talented and they deserve an insane amount of attention for their work in A Star is Born. Whether they end up together or not, I only wish them the best. But, something tells me there is more to this connection off screen and I can’t wait to watch it unfold in the weeks and months to come. We all know, any kind of knocking-boots on the down-low always surfaces as the cover story in Hollywood. Time will tell!

People are FREEZING!

On the way class looking like this! WTF?

Angelism: Climate change is real! The universe continues to show us how angry it is, I suggest we listen and stop resisting.

January 2019 brought an official winter to Los Angeles. Here in SoCal we have been hit with weather so chilly that it has included rain, thunder, and lightning. Weather so cold that we actually had a few 40 degree nights! Locals are all complaining about how miserable it is oustside and how awful it is to drive and do things in “this weather.” Although I am one of these whiney people, I’m fully aware that we all need to shut the f#ck up!  People are literally freezing and dying in other states. Yes, legit dying! They are being advised not to have conversations outside because their lungs are freezing from sub-zero temperatures. So to do my part, I will embrace our cold weather here in California and spread some happiness dressed like an eskimo on my 50 degree winter days. Figure this is me doing my small part to commit to a complaint free world! 🙂

Sending hugs and love to those in the Midwest and East Coast. Sounds like there is more harsh weather ahead. Stay warm!

Give Up Yet?

Angelism: New year new year! This does not work! Your goals don’t mean a damn thing after February 1st! 

92% of New Years Resolutions Fail!

January encourages everyone to get their shit together. New Years goals are blasted on marketing materials and every retailer promotes workout gear and diet plans. By February most people feel like failures. The gung-ho take off for a perfect start to a great new year is crap and has us all chowing down on chocolate and champagne by Valentines day. So why year after year do we all put so much weight on the New Years Goal? My assumption is our intentions are good and it feels right to have a fresh start. End of day, if you don’t have good habits already, you’re likely to fail!

The focus should be setting small achievable goals spaced out throughout the year. Maybe at first you decide to give up soda. Then after two months you give up ice cream. After that maybe you vow to stop eating fast food. These little life changes spaced out over the course of your year will allow for long-term success. But you have to REALLY want it. Goals are only achievable when you manage them realistically and adjust them as needed when life changes come up.

Adulting Sucks!

Angelism: Wish not to grow up, for once you grow up you will quickly learn that adulting sucks!

I have hated ADULTING  all of my adult life.  I can kick myself for not thinking of this amazing idea to create a school where teachers educate young adults on how to exist in this crazy world. WHAT A GREAT CONCEPT! Need help using a coffee maker, folding a fitted sheet, taking care of pet, making the appropriate decision on what fork to use at a fancy restaurant, how to buy a car, how set up household accounts, or manage your money/debt? This is a million dollar idea and kudos to the team who invented it. I can’t wait to watch these schools boom all over our country. WE NEED THIS! Maybe this will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!! The last two generations have been too soft and fragile. The reality of adulting is overwhelming for so many but no time like the now to get your shit together! Greatest school to be created in the last 20 years as far as I am concerned. https://adultingschool.com/

Mediocre Sex Is A Problem

Angelism: “Never be so busy that your vagina suffers neglect!”

The busy day passes and most woman go to bed and think, “All I did today was do for others.” Many things get in the way of you making time for yourself; long work days, kids that suck the life out of you, friends and family that take and never give back, and the biggest issue of all a mate who continuously puts their needs above yours. All of this leaves you tired and bitter at the end of the day. You go most days giving and giving to others but never take the time to fuel yourself up. It’s no wonder your sex life is mediocre.
By definition mediocre means: of only moderate quality; ordinary. Ladies please tell me you are not settling for ordinary when you can have extraordinary. This is not healthy. If you are not having an orgasm at least three times a week, I said, “THREE TIMES A WEEK,” you are withholding your female body from a pleasure it truly deserves. You work daily, play hard, socialize often, lack sleep, and put others needs before yours. Your vagina craves attention too. Just like you should get in three workouts a week, you need the intimate, rewarding, healthy, beneficial joy of an orgasm a few times a week. Feed your soul and make time for your sexuality to exist.
Never forget that sex is fun. It’s exciting and it satisfies the body in numerous ways. With every kiss, unexpected touch, and sexual experience you feel a tingle in your body that is thrilling. It’s the good feelings of intimacy that you should strive for and work to maintain. The teasing, love taps, hugs, smooches, communication, and desire to please one another will make you a happier woman and a more satisfied couple. If you are dealing with a non-existent or mediocre sex life, I encourage you to work at being a foxy, happy, climaxing, and full of fun woman.
This blog is not only for couples. The fact is, you are your best sexual partner. A satisfying sex life does not have to include a mate. Now you may be thinking, “What is she talking about? I’m my own best partner?” To which I say, “Yes, yes you are!” There are going to be times when you have a dry spell. During these times, if you know how to pleasure yourself you can go long time without sexual contact and not feel deprived. The goal here is to focus on turning your mediocre sex life into a weekly, rewarding, fun, and healthy one, whether it’s with someone or not. Give it a try, the benefits are worth it. Good to keep the upstairs and downstairs happy!

Sad Day… Actor Alan Thicke Dead at 69 Years Old

Angelism: Enjoy every second you are gifted in this life, your last breath may be the one you are taking right now. 

My heart breaks a little today hearing this news. Alan Thicke, dead at 69 years of age, apparently was out playing hockey with his 19 year old son when he suffered from a heart-attack. Do you think when Alan left the house to go play with his son today that he had the thought by end of the day he’d be dead? He always looked great for his age, seemingly took good care of himself, and always appeared to be vibrant and full of energy. I simply can’t believe it!

I grew up with the show Growing Pains and Alan was one of my favorite TV dads. This show was on for many seasons, is in syndication still today, and launched a great many careers including Kirk Cameron and Leonardo DiCaprio. When I see it on TV, I always stop and enjoy the sweetness that this show/family portrayed. Life was very different then. It was simple yet equally as complicated when it comes to raising kids and working together as a family. Anyhow, I feel my generation just suffered a great loss. RIP Mr. Alan Thicke.

Discovering DNA

Angelism: Knowledge is power & knowing the details of your roots is amazing & eye opening. 

 
I was told I was a mut growing up and that was why I was beautiful. I wonder if my family hoped I’d never question all that was actually me. I definitely had curiosity over the years on how my mix came together. People along the way asked, “What nationality are you?” Truthfully I couldn’t quite put a finger on what I was. I’m not easily judged as any one nationality; showing up in this world with light eyes, dark wavy hair, freckles, tall, solid structure, curvy, physically strong, dominant nose, big eyes and large face; I appear to be many things. My Dad said on his side that I was 25% Italian, and 25% Spanish, and on my mom’s side, I was 25% Polish, some Portuguese and who knows what else? Having traveled to Spain and Italy I definitely felt a pull to those cultures. At 40, it was time to discover the truth.
Turns out, I really am a bit of a melting pot. A rainbow of colors on the map above which is exciting and shocking all at the same time. Being mostly European was expected, but this breakdown was news to me. I had no idea I was Balkan, French, and German, nor would I have thought that I had British or Irish in me.
I also did not foresee being Native American or East Asian. I knew I would have some African roots in me as we have always heard there was some Puerto Rican heritage on my mom’s side. I think it is an amazing thing to see this all mapped out down to each little DNA marker that makes up me.

 

I highly encourage that if you ever had any interest in knowing where your roots are from that you take one of these tests. I did the 23andMe.com DNA test that also reported on traits, wellness, and carrier status for certain health risks. I was so impressed with this report, that today I ordered a cancer gene test from getcolor.com because knowledge is power, and I want to know as much as I can.
My takeaway is that this explains my love for travel, and exploring a variety of things. My family history shows that we are movers, and I will assume we were willing to take risks and rebel once in awhile, as well as date outside of our race. It also explains why I have a love for so many types of food, and why I’m attracted to a variety of cultures, music, and lifestyles. My boyfriend took this test as well and he is much more of a purebred, 99.8% Northern European. He is my very white German, British, Irish, French and Scandinavian man. I love that my family history shook things up. Turns out I have cousins everywhere, and I think that’s exciting! Cheers to diversity, blending, and the melting pot that is the USA. Glad that this Trump wall wasn’t up 100+ years ago, none of my family would have made it over here. LOL!!!

WTH? LOL Images!!!

Angelism: They say never judge a book by the cover because not everything is as it appears, but some bizarre things are as they appear and that’s just weird!

I have been out of the loop on this relationship since Shaq has been with this girl for sometime now, but WTF? His girlfriend’s shoulder reaches his big ass man hip. I’m sure from a male’s perspective this has benefits, but come on. Is this really enjoyable? I would be embarrassed. I love a tall dude, I really do. I am 5’10 and my man Scott is 6’8, and I very much appreciate his grand stature. But honestly too much taller and our proportions are all kinds of crazy. I simply can’t wrap my head around these images. #mindblown #shemustbecrazy

This picture is simply too funny. This apparently is what animals would look like if they had eyes on the front of their faces. OMG, I died a little when I saw this on Facebook. Definitely gave me a good laugh. I’m officially glad that they don’t look like this. Not a cute look for our furry friends. #fugly

Lastly, I found this freak of the week image. Surf the internet long enough and some weird shit pops up. If you want to shock people this Halloween, look into replicating this. I don’t know what the hell this person was thinking when they designed this whole human package, or why they took pics of it, but it caught my eye, and not in a good way. #confusedasfuckThere ya go! Some WTH? LOL images for your day!


Vince Vaughn Bald!

Angelism: Shaved heads are not always attractive. Think carefully about the shape of your head as well as your skintone. Don’t do anything stupid it may not grow back!

Today’s shocking and “heartbreaking” celebrity news is a bald Vince Vaughn. He looks completely different and not in a good way. I have always thought he was a handsome man, I have a thing for tall, dark haired dudes. But now? WOOF! I know this is for a role, and for a million or more bucks, I would probably go bald too. This unforgiving image is proof that bald isn’t for everyone!
My boyfriend Scott always threatens to shave his head. He claims it would be easier, save us money, and he would no longer have to waste those few minutes trying to fix it just right to cover up the balding that is happening with age. My only response is NO EFFIN WAY! I am not ready for this to happen. I am not prepared for the potentially scary bald man to lay next to me in bed. We are not that old!

Not sure how the rest of you ladies feel about the shaved head. Some guys can really rock it. Vince Vaughn however is not one of those guys, he needs to grow his hair back ASAP! Unless he is holding out for a serial killer role, this look does him no favors. If you can’t pull off a Bruce Willis, shaving your head completely bald is not worth the risk!
