New Facebook Confusion

Along with many others, I am not happy with the lastest Facebook updates. Over the past few days I have noticed the small changes, but now I simply cannot tell the difference between a status update and a wall post. I think I accidentally wrote on my own wall instead of updating my status. How dumb does that make me look? haha.
I also hate how the invitations and other notifications are at the top in the same font as the rest of the home page, making it almost impossible to notice among the other chaos.
I have even noticed a huge increase in peoples' status updates saying "___ hates the new facebook" and many more like that. Hopefully they will get the hint from reading the participants' opinions and change the website layout yet again.

I love Michael Cera

As I was laying in bed bored last night, I decided to bring back a good oldie that all of us have watched a 2008 movie that portrays male teenage akwardness and sexual frustrations better than any boy themselves could act out. That movie is Superbad: a classic. Sorry for all of you that despise this movie, but it is just plain hilarious in all its discusting and obnoxious lines. Not to mention that Michael Cera is a main character and to me, he is quirky and absolutely adorable.

This leads me to his next movie Juno, another well-done story about a 16-year-old girl who gets pregant and decides to go through the pregnancy put the baby up for adoption. This is another movie that makes Cera look like a dork in his short-shorts and timid personality, but his akwardly sweet adolescent character is genious.

Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist was a alternative type film about two teens' mutual love for music, and more specifically, a band named Fluffy that ultimately brings the two together. In this movie, Cera plays more of a prominent male character, as a musician in a band who makes mix CD's that Nora falls in love with. Although he still maintains his authentic charm, Cera got what he deserved as the sought after "hot guy."

MaggieMoo's Ice Cream

So last week, I went out for ice cream with some friends at MaggieMoo's in West Hartford. Turns out this quaint little ice cream shop was very similar to Coldstone's Creamery in that the ice cream is mashed together with whatever toppings you choose on a "cold stone."
I got the Caramel Fudge Swirpool, which had caramel, snickers bar pieces, and chocolate fudged all mixed into this extra creamy vanilla flavored ice cream called Udderly Cream. For figure friendly choices, MaggieMoo's also has raspberry and peach sherbert. My two friends got a scoop of each of those with gummy bears mixed in - I tasted and that was amazing too.
MaggieMoo's has a wide variety of flavors and toppings to choose from and was absolutely delicious. It was also a great place to meet and hang with friends. I reccomend it to anyone who enjoys good ice cream once in a while.

The Wedding Crasher Gets Engaged

According to, Vince Vaugn, 38, is engaged to his girlfriend Kyla Weber. In the story he states, "For me, the biggest foundation always is that you can laugh with each other, that you have fun with each other, because life really is made up of all the little moments." I just love him and think he is the funniest guy on earth. I think its great that he finally found happiness after Aniston.,,20263330,00.html

In My Bag

I was searching the web for fashion blogs this morning and came across something I never thought was real: a bag blog. I originally was looking around Iamfashion on blogger when suddenly I found myself after clicking a link, on This site has countless designer bags with photos and comments about the nitty gritty details of each one's material along with the best use, the price and where to get it. Even though most of the bags are not affordable to us college girls, the bloggers mention in certain posts that some bags may be on sale or sold at a cheaper price in another store. So check this unique women's blog out if you are interested:

Newport, RI

This weekend I took a trip to Newport, RI with some friends and enjoy a leisurely girls getaway weekend. We started the trip by having a fancy lunch at an upscale restaurant on Thames Street called Astricks. The four of us happened to be the only people in the entire restaurant, which turned out to be great for us to freely converse and laugh as loud as we pleased.
The restaurant itself was a quaint cafe by the beach, still managing to maintain its charm even in middle of the winter in a beach town. We started off with "Flirtinis," a type of martini with an array of tropical fruit juices mixed with tangeray and vodka. After enjoying our noon time cocktails, we ordered lunch along with another drink.
The meals had the gourmet touch that I expected with the most amazing french fries I have ever eaten. They were not to crispy, not too soft and the chef left just enough skin on the potato before being fried. They accompanied my BLT on a baquette perfectly and I finished my sandwhich and martini with nothing left in my glass or plate.
I would recommend this restaurant to any girls who want to get lunch during a day of shopping in Newport. Although it is an upscale restaurant, the prices for lunch ranged between $10-$15.

Rhianna, Don't Listen to the Media

I turned on channel 8 this morning to watch the View, a women's politically-charged talk show with famous faces such as Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd, and the ever-annoying Elisabeth Hassleback.

For the past couple years The View has consisted mostly of banter surrounding Barack Obama: the anticipation and the reality Obama as President. Now, the girls having run out of political issues that bother the heck out of them and have stooped down to celebrity gossip. Today's topic was Rhianna and Chris Brown. Though every person feels terrible for Rhianna and hopes she can recover both mentally and physically from her boyfriend Chris Brown's violent act towards her, The View manages to form a guilt-trip on the poor young women about how she needs to make PSA's for young girls in the public.

I understand Rhianna is a public figure and all, but seriously leave her alone! She is going through something so profoundly hurtful and I am pretty sure right now she is trying to care and take care of herself, not all the little girls who want to be her. Now, don't get me wrong, I do believe that domestic violence is absolutely absurd and Chris Brown needs to be punished for, but Rhianna needs her privacy rather than more publicity.

The media is positive in spreading information to the public, but sometimes the people who work in the media need to have common courtesy.
