J’Adore: Neon Hoop Earrings.

You find the most unexpected things when you’re not looking to buy…like these neon hoops in lemon green and hot pink. These were an unexpected find and I had to have them. I mean, how often does a girl come across hoop earrings in hot pink?

The day I got them, we were in a rush to go somewhere and I unfortunately didn’t have any money on me but I had to have them. As a quirk, I NEVER bargain when it comes to jewellery. But, this particular day, I bargained for them and after coming to a satisfactory price, I asked my brother to loan me the money and I was one happy customer.
I love them because of the colours – lemon green and hot pink (this is why I had to have both pairs) plus they have this gold trim inside that caps off all the uniqueness. They have character which I am into, lately. I am tired of the common hoops; gold or silver with no texture. I’m in the process of getting rid of the common ones for fierce ones like the ones Tia and Tamera or Lady Gaga wear. Those are banging.

My collection (so far) of hoop earrings with character

If most of my current pictures are to be believed, I have gotten more mileage out of the lemon green ones than the hot pink yet I love pink. The thing about hoops with character is; you can wear them with anything and feel instantly over dressed so invest in a good pair whenever you can.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
