Iâ€™ve travel a lot over the past year, all but one flight taking Southwest. I adore this airline due to the comfort of knowing its system. Last flight, as I have said, I felt like I was cheating on someone that had done nothing wrong but not given me a free flight on which I flew. But I am back again to my comfort zone in sky on my first ever fully booked flight. When they say full booked, they meant it. Thereâ€™s usually always that middle seat between me and the isle person (Iâ€™m a window girl) but not this time. He kinda keeps leaning over on my side too. Hogging both arm rest is just not okay to do. In protest to this I pull out my laptop and write. Marla needs some air.
My mom treated me to the newest issue of In Style magazine with the adorable Kate Hudson on the cover. I donâ€™t read magazines much these days, unless someone at work brings in People, I tend to read that on my breaks. But always feel a big guilty about reading so much about peopleâ€™s lives I do not know. Then again, some of you reading this may be doing that very thing. Difference being the people I read about are famous and the one you are is not. In Style doesnâ€™t get down to the dirt of who slept with who or who dressed badly while carrying Starbucks in hand. Itâ€™s simply, more about style. But on the other hand, the interviews with Kate or Kenny Chensley, neither really to do with style. Sure thereâ€™s the twist of Kateâ€™s lifestyle and how stylish it is. Or the main feature on the newly wed Kenny is his Tennessee home and how he decorates or styled it.
In Style is also not embarrassing to carry around, at least not to me. Where as if you carry around People or the likes, there is judgment taking place silently by some near you. Sure, some are going to judge me about wondering what summer shoes are hot, but they are welcome to do that. I love shoes, so sue me. Talking over last minute wedding festivities with Sarah yesterday trying to pack in the-less-is-more method I worried about the amount of room my shoes would take up. She commented â€œOh no, are you turning into a shoe girl, Alisa?â€ Yes, yes I am. I have will-power against buying every cute one that catches my eye. Heck, even just the other day Robbies was having a sale on some Steve Maddens (my weakness though I donâ€™t own a pair. I have carried around a pair two sizes too big because they were just too cute and way too on sale not to even think about it. Call me silly all you want, I do not care.) but I couldnâ€™t even talk myself into these $40 heels. Even if they had been the very pair I drooled over on my friendâ€™s wife not even a month before wondering where she had gotten them. So Im do not need a 12 step program or anything, I just like shoes. A lot.
Back to the magazineâ€¦ advertising has been fascinating me as of late. I mean, when did Judy Jettison make a come back? I mean I donâ€™t remember when that show went off the air, but itâ€™s been a very long time and I donâ€™t remember her being a style icon. But sheâ€™s got two placements in just this one magazine alone with two different companies. I guess all I can say is â€˜Go Judyâ€™. I have no desire to color my hair; have no plans to until those ugly reminders that I am older of grey pop up. But there is a great cut shown in a color hair product advertisement that I do plan on ripping out and bringing with me next time I get my hair cut. Props to them. Also, word of mouth has talked about this lotion that is safe to wear every day which has a small douse of tanner in it. I thought it was a great idea when I heard about it but now seeing it and the company that makes it, I probably will treat myself to some next time I have spare cash. I think Iâ€™ve bakes my body enough this summer and itâ€™s only the end of June. Final one Iâ€™ll push has to be the Walnut and Apple salad at McDâ€™s. I actually discovered this tasty thing with my Grandma during the free red eye ticket adventure couple months back. Who would of thought sugary walnuts, red and green apples mixed with sweet yogurt would be such a wonderful thing? Next time you want to treat yourself (Iâ€™m all about that arenâ€™t I?) in the food department head over to McDâ€™s, grab it to go and eat it in a park. Much better senoray than the smells of hamburgers and fries surrounding your trying to be healthy snack.
Now that Im safe and sound, down from circling the skys waiting for nasty thunder storms to seattle down and a three hour drive from Maryland to Cville, I am going to get some beauty rest.
