Lesson #4: Means People Are Ugly
Well, I think we all know this….but nothing like stumbling upon it on some wall in some random restaurant in Chicago to solidify this lesson 🙂 How awesome is THAT?
What’s even cooler are the people in this picture.
I begged this guy, Leslie Samuel, to pleeeeeaassse drive to Chicago to come see me. He’s a blogger over at Interactive Biology and Become a Blogger. We met in his Google+ community, and I instantly liked him. He even invited me last week to record a podcast with him titled “Is Your Blog Ruining Your Life?” which was such a great conversation between friends! So anyhow, when he found out I was going to be in Chicago, he lackadaisically said, “Oh, you should have told me. I would have come to meet you.” Um…..really?? Okay, then bring your butt here!
And he came!
We had a yummy dinner with a friend of his, Toni, from The Happy Housewife! She was this super-cute mother of 7, who HOME SCHOOLS. Can we say “IMPRESSED”?? Loved her!
While Toni and I sipped this AMAZING root beer with–ahem-10% alcohol, picked her and Leslie’s brain about what makes a successful blogger. Eye-opening……
And yep. Mean people are ugly. But it’s the beautiful people that will lift you up on your shoulders when you need support. Thanks for confirming that, Leslie and Toni. 🙂
Lesson 5: Every Woman Should Wear Fake Lashes At Least ONCE
Every year Impress is a sponsor at BlogHer, and they bring along their fake nails and fake eyelashes. And if you’ve ever poo-poo’ed on fake lashes, oooohhh….You don’t know what you’re talking about!
See here how my lashes look? Thankfully, I naturally have long lashes anyhow.
(And check out that amazing henna tattoo that they were doing at one of the BlogHer parties!)
But with fake ones????? Man……I turned into a sex kitten. MEEEOOOWWWWW!
It felt like I was wearing caterpillars on my eyes at first. HA! But after I got used to them, I was digging it. A LOT. So much that I would even buy them and wear on special occasions. Seriously, you NEED to try them!
