Are you a Name Brand Junkie?

What are some of the name brand clothing & accessories you just HAVE to have? Is it because you like the style, everyone has it, or it makes you feel like a celebrity?Before I start, I am not writing this  post to judge anyone. Don't take it to offense. I am just going to state why I am not obsessed with it....more

ARE YOU ANNOYING ON FACEBOOK?

What makes someone "annoying" on FACEBOOK?  Do you find yourself hiding or deleting more and more people? Why do they get offensive when they find out? I am sure we all have had our moments of being annoying ourselves. Many of us have been through that phase. I can say I may have annoyed people when I had to promote my dad's performances when he was singing at local hot spots every weekend.These are some of the things that annoy me (and most people)...more

ITALIAN FOOD & ITALIAN PRIDE!

My parents were born in Sicily, Italy and came here when they were really young. I'd like to say that they brought the best parts of the Italian tradition  to America.Italian-Americans are somewhat different than the Italians in Italy from what I saw myself. They do not eat eggs in the morning, they use eggs for some dinner recipes. They also do not eat as much as Italian-Americans here is the U.S.For holidays we all get together and feast on antipasto, first course (pasta), main course, and later on we enjoy coffee and pastries. ...more

What happens when you turn 30?

So I am turning 30 years old November 12! A part of me is really excited and a part of me is upset that I wont have the number 2 before the other digit. I'd like to believe that my tolerance has changed, also what I care for and who I want around me.When I was in my teens / early 20's I cared more about what people think. I am not saying I don't care at all, but I do care a lot less. I never left my house without eyeliner or my hair done just incase someone good looking saw me. I wanted to look my best in public....more
A lot has changed in the years just before and since turning 30 and I'm happy for all of it. I ...more

MEN CAN CLEAN TOO!

I think we can all agree that the world and the people in it has changed. Women couldn't vote until 1920. Women tended to their homes while the men worked. Now-a-days women and men are "almost equal". I say almost because I believe that women should still act like ladies with class and be a little more delicate than men....more
