Giveaway winner & etc.

First thing is first: Ela from Extra Dressing On. The. Side is my first giveaway winner! She will receive the crystal dragonfly necklace I made. Congratulations, Ela!

Also, I wanted to update you on the sour cream lady. She never showed up to work on Monday. In fact, the regular secretary was back from maternity leave. When I asked the secretary why she was back early and where sour cream lady was, she said she didn't know. All she knew was that the office manager called and asked her if she could come back to work a week early. So I guess that's the end of that...? Although, I have to admit, I'm still very curious about everything. Where did she go? Why did she snap? Sigh. I guess that's just the investigative journalist in me...

This week has been pretty strange for me. I feel like I'm on a roller coaster. One day I'm up, the next day I'm down.



Unfortunately, today happens to be a down day. I'm feeling hopelessly depressed. I feel fat, ugly, and lame. I'm dreading going to work. I just feel awful and unwanted. Today is going to drag by verrrry slowly, I'm afraid.

Anyway, I'll stop there because I don't want to drag anyone else down with me! Ha.

I hope everyone else has a better day!

I totally have those days as well! Even the most fabulous of girls have blah days! I'm so sorry to hear you are having one, because I think you are wonderful! So very cute (not fat at all!!) and clever (hello? Sour Cream Lady? So funny I died reading it.) I hope that your day turns around. Do something that makes you totally happy. For me its heading to the bookstore by myself and indulging in a mocha with whip and reading novels from the YA section. kinda sad? sure, but it makes me happy. So find something today to do just for you that makes you smile! and don't worry because we all know how fabulous you are!

xoxo

Is that bike a Triumph? I think it might be, and Kate Moss is doing truly terrible things to it with her crotch. Cheer up - everyone has off days!

You know what helps me when I think I'm about to have a bad day? I focus on colors! Bright ones for gloomy days and pastels for moody days! Believe it or not but it really helps!
p.s. You know the color samples in the paint department, well I grabbed some of those in brights and pastels and made a little flip book to carry in my bag!!!:)

Imogen said...

Congrats to Ela, I really liked the idea of this giveaway. Interesting about the sour cream woman...i want to know more about it too now. I'm sorry your having one of those days. Actually I have been feeling a bit like that too lately and I am returning to university next week:( But everything will be ok for me, and you too.

C. said...

Ohh, this picture is fantastic!

Dream Sequins said...

I am definitely having one of those days. But, like cloudy weather, this too shall pass my dear. Sending you warm wishes!!!

Little Red said...

Everyone has those days. You'll get through it. Just think positive. And know that you are a lovely, gorgeous girl!

Ela said...

So does that mean I can never say "I never win anything" anymore??? Oh my gosh. I am sooooo excited, you don't even know! Seriously, I've won academic stuff but that I had to work for - this...oh I can't wait to wear it. Thank you, J!!!

Hon, seriously sending you an email now...we'll chat more about this roller coaster stuff there.

Beth Dunn said...

Do try to find some time to have fun. I feel fat and ugly a lot (it does not help my tan is gone). Maybe something funny like a movie??? xoxo

Cafe Fashionista said...

Congratulations Ela!

Darling, we all have days like that. You must simply do something that makes you cheer up - I tend to look at cupcakes (how can you not smile when you see one), or indulge in a little retail therapy. Sometimes buying something new is just the trick to make you feel good about yourself. I hope today turns out better than yesterday.

By the way...strange about the sour cream lady. I'm really not surprised she was...let go? She may have been a danger to other employees in the future; seeing as how she flew off the handle the way she did. :/

Fashionista said...

just hope you'll feel better soon!!!

OceanDreams said...

I hope you feel better soon. Hang in there and go do something that will bring a smile to your face. Maybe go to your favorite restaurant or eat your favorite snack!

anhesty said...

hey girl, that post was published halfway done. lol. but thanks for being the first to comment. perhaps you wanna check back and see what excatly the post is about?

btw, I hope you're feeling okay now. that crazy roller coaster fellings are normal to anybody, i guess. I've got my share too and they're really bad coz it affects everything that I do and everything around me. The good thing about it is, it does not stay. It goes, then comes back, then goes .But at least, it doesn't stay, right? lol. :)

enjoy your Sunday. :)
