Important New Word......GLAMPER!

Glamper you say? Here is the meaning and where it originated from. This past Wednesday, we had a GIRLS NIGHT OUT! This rarely, if never happens in the land of Celeste. I ate, I drank, I karaoked, O MY!! Tons of fun. But it didn't start out that way. Why? Because.... LACK OF MAKE-UP! As I am getting ready for this monumental event, I sit down in front of the mirror to open up my 'so called' make-up bag and quickly realize that I don't have any. Well I did have some if you count the eyeliner that was so old it wouldn't leave a line on my lid or the eye shadow that was sparkly gold and purple which reminded me of something back in the STUDIO 54 days. Unbelievable! It just about blew my good mood and then I said to myself, "ROLL WITH WHATCHUGOT and NEVER let this happen again." In 20yrs I will regret not taking the time to go out and pamper myself with some new M.A.C. lip glass or eyelash mascara. The time is NOW for the glamour.

So this Friday, I will be at the mall smiling at the Chanel and M.A.C. makeup chicks saying "What will make my eyes smoulder, and my lips pout?" I WILL be ready for our next month's Girls' Night Out from start to the overly tipsy finish.

Michael Jackson Cupcakes

The whole world seemed to be either in LA yesterday or at least watching. His music seems to be the soundtrack of my childhood and extended through my dance school owner/director years. This is so cool how some people choose to express themselves!!

I'm Officially Obsessed With......CUPCAKES!

I stumbled upon the the cutest little website today. It put a smile on my face and a rumble in my tummy! Check out Guess what the site is dedicated to? Ahhh yes.... cupcakes!!

I never really put much thought into cupcakes until I checked out this site. Could they be the perfect food? Ok, maybe not THE perfect food but it is a strong contender. Visually they can be adorable or even stunning depending on the decoration. Their size creates the illusion that you aren't a pig. The icing not only smells like sugar heaven but also tastes like it. Cupcakes always seems to spread a sense of social sharing. You open up the box and suddenly you've made 10 extra friends.

Yelp, just what I needed....another fattening desire during swimsuit season.

Welcome to shallowOcity!

It’s exhausting being everyone’s everything all the time. Sometimes I want to throw myself on the floor kicking like my 2 yr old and scream ME! ME! ME!

I’m just like most women out there….I adore my kids and hubby, and I live a pretty fabulous life! And also like most women, I gladly give my all and many times find myself short of “giving” myself some pampering time.

ShallowOcity is a place to get my 5 minutes and check in with “Me”.

Let’s face it, we ARE the stars of the show – the leading lady! No matter how much our cast and crew hogs the spotlight. We make them all look fabulous. If you happen to take anything away from this blog, remember this……If mama ain’t happy then no one is happy!

Let’s take our 5 minutes of happy and “shallow” out.
