In a former life, I used to travel quite a bit. Granted, it was mostly for work, but that still counts, right? One of my favorite things to do when in a strange town was to spend an evening painting said town red. A nice evening out for me would consist of dinner somewhere and maybe a little evening sightseeing.
Imagine a night out in London…Having a fantastic dinner and then heading to the West End theatre district to take in one of the hit shows. Or maybe a sporting event is more your style. Wouldn’t the soccer lover in your life love taking in a footy game in England? How about seeing your favorite band across the pond? It could be the ultimate fan experience!
Ahhh…weddings. Who doesn’t love a beautiful wedding in a gorgeous locale? Browsing through wedding magazines can send a girl (or a guy!) into sensory overload. Dresses, flowers, food, the rings! And the picture perfect venues that are all too much to bear. So, you can’t afford to have your wedding in the Bahamas or Aspen. That doesn’t mean your wedding has to suck or be cookie cutter, either.
There are lots of unusual wedding and reception venues, if you just look around.
I am a huge fan of trash TV. I’m not ashamed to admit it, either. I love me some of the Real Housewives, the Real World/Road Rules Challenges, and those kind of reality tv shows and docudramas. And I can’t forget Maury Povich. YOU ARE NOT THE FATHER!
But I now have a new love. Oh yes. I have just started watching Toddlers and Tiaras. I know you’re asking me “Geez, that shows only been on for like 4 years. What took you so long?” Well, a few things. One, I don’t have cable, and haven’t for a long time. They don't carry Center Ice, so I don't feel the need to pay for it. Simple, really. Two, I got all sucked in to being judgmental and thinking “oh, those poor little kids and the bad parents.”
It appears that there are some serious concerts to see in 2013! There are some music tours that are more anticipated and revered than the rest; it takes more than fancy clothing and a rock star image to woo the audience. A music artist is required to be an epitome of individuality and inspiration, and that makes him/her stand out from the crowd.
If you are a music buff, you would know how some musical concerts are more exciting than the others. Nobody is crazy for the usual lip syncing amateurs; it takes someone truly adept in his or her genre to bring down the house. Here are some of the most original showmen in the industry, who can mesmerize millions with a live concert:
There is a reason why Aerosmith is a legend; this band knows how to rock the night away. Better known as America’s greatest rock n roll band, they have been performing since the 1970’s, and continue to boast of house-full shows. The immaculate guitar skills and Steven Tyler’s vocals, that are equally brilliant when performing live, bring in thousands of rockers to see an Aerosmith act. Hands down, this rock band is a must see!
Valentine’s Day is veering down upon us rapidly. I mean, I can see it from here, and I don’t have a clue as to what I’m going to do yet. It may be a popcorn and movies night. What movies? Perhaps one of these great Romantic movies.
Crazy Stupid Love – It’s got Emma Stone. And Ryan Gosling. As a couple! I almost don’t need anything else. Add in the fact that it has a great story line and is a fabulous movie just makes it better.
Music has always been one of the things that I enjoy. I’ve always had really eclectic tastes and have liked a wide variety of styles and genres. It’s funny, because really the only genres I don’t like are Jazz and modern R&B. Oddly enough, I don’t like them for the same reason – I’m not a fan of music that veers off on its own tangent.
That's one of the reasons that I love Spotify. I can listen to, literally, just about any song ever recorded. Oh, don't mind if I do!
Just about everything else, though, is fair game for my play list. A few of my favorite songs right now.
It used to be that people only got married during the Summer. Well, if they were having a big wedding, that is. Nowadays, weddings are happening year-round. The only problem with this, is that you need to prepare for a Winter wedding much differently than you do for a summer wedding.
Here are some of the hot Winter Wedding Ideas for 2012 + 2013
Winter 2012 & 2013 Wedding Dresses
Wedding Dresses are leaning back towards the elegance of yesteryear. Lace, silks, and brocades can be seen in dresses from the top designers. Modern twists like high-low hemlines, sheer necklines, and bare backs are also on-trend. And, of course, lace sleeves are still so hot, thanks to Kate Middleton.
Colored gowns are very popular this season as well. Most brides are keeping it to a soft shade like silver, icy blue, or a blush pink.
When you kick back and relax, how do you like to do it? Me? I like to escape. I also like to be informed. Therefore, People Magazine is the perfect relaxation escape for me! I like to either kick back on my bed and read the magazine, or in the warmer months, I’ll go outside and check it out. Sometimes, I may even read it over a cup of coffee.
One of the things that I like about People Magazine is seeing the celebrity wedding photos. While I always like to catch up on the latest celebrity news, what I really like is the little tidbits of who was seen where or what they were wearing.

Do you love movies at your house? Maybe you really like basketball. Or possibly, you like basketball movies! Either way, you're in for a treat. Warner Bros is getting ready to release a movie called Thunderstruck, starring Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota T'Wolves.
A brief synopsis:
"NBA superstar Kevin Durant plays himself in this action-packed family film about a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16-year-old fan. When Brian (Taylor Gray) magically switches basketball skills with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team... while Kevin Durant suddenly can’t make a shot to save his life! But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner means working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero’s season."
Wanna see this? You're in luck! We're giving away a Thunderstruck Movie combo pack which includes a DVD + Blu Ray + Digital Download. Pretty awesome, right?

My friends and I love to go out and cut loose. Oftentimes, we end up heading to a larger area for a weekend getaway. Sometimes, though, even that gets old. Where are we going? Power & Light in Kansas City? Alright…I suppose that’s ok…
But every so often, you need to shake up your routine. Even the jet set get stick in a rut. At least I’d have to imagine that they do! That’s where Primp & Prep comes in to play.
