imma miss you, oprah.

aside from a brief stint in college during which my roommate brainwashed me into hating oprah (it was a dark, dark time), oprah has constantly been one of my top inspirations for as long as i can remember. the farewell episodes this week are a liiiiittle much, but i was legit bawling yesterday ...AND today, when stedman came out (omg! he does exist!)

anyways, who else can do it like oprah? NO ONE. i'll sit down to watch an episode, and have my mouth hanging open, then i'll cry, then i'll yell at the tv, then i'll gasp...all in the span of half of an episode.

she's epic...flawless...amazing, etc. and rich as haaaaale. anytime you wanna hang out, oprah, girl...just call me, k? i know you're gonna have a lot of downtime now that the show's over. and gayle is totally using you.

weird shit that tells us that judgement day is coming.

the more i think about it, the more all of this "judgement day" and "rapture" mumbo-jumbo starts to make sense. let's think about it:

1. the daughter of the dude that sang one-hit wonder "achey-breaky heart" is one of the most popular pop stars in the world.

2. one of the other most popular pop stars in the world wears meat and hangs out in eggs.

3. donald trump and his hair were REALISTICALLY considering running for the u.s. presidency.

4. two of the biggest boy bands in history are touring. together. as a supergroup.

5. oprah is ending.

stuff i love: sally hansen's nail effects

ahhhh!!! even just looking at that picture makes me gleeful.

i HATE doing my nails, so when i came across these lil' miracles in the CVS beauty section, i nearly fainted. i don't care if the patterns are tween-ish, i'm in love. the best part? they're not fake nails, but basically just decals you place on your nails and shape with a file to fit. when you're sick of 'em, you take them off with nail polish remover. amazing.

so far, i've tried the fishnet pattern in the top row and the leopard one in the second, and i was thinking the reviews i read that said "ohh i've gotten so many compliments!" were exaggerating. but seriously everywhere i go, random people compliment and/or ask me about them. great conversation starter!

at $8-10, these babies aren't cheap, but they're oh-so-worth it.

100 things to do in 2011: month in review.

i was a little lax in april on completing new list items, but i had to stay true to my promise of keeping y'all updated. y'know? so take it or leave it!

13. see 50 new movies: CONTINUED.
in one ambitious weekend, i watched black swan (most messed up movie EVER) and then jackass 3d to take the edge off. love those dudes.

28. go hiking: COMPLETED.
on a gorgeous sunday morning, i randomly decided to check out breakheart reservation in saugus, a gorgeous park with tons of walking trails. so peaceful & awesome.

32. try one new recipe a month: CONTINUED.
ok, so i'm STILL behind by two recipes, but i made chicken piccata which was effin' delicious. in fact, it might even be my choice to complete #21, "perfect a dish".

61. make $1,000 in freelance: CONTINUED.
another $270 brought in from homerun. hello, $660!
