Are you there God? It's me, Caribbean Cowgirl.If you don't know this reference(Google Judy Blume), kindly refrain from clicking the 'read more' link lol. I'm kidding by the way. Also, I would like to add that God would know me as Caribbean Cowgirl as an all knowing being and presence I am quite sure my blog is on the radar. Speaking of which, "God, can you tell your friends to check out my blog and tell their friends as well? Amen" *takes a sigh of relief.
But really, my life is in a constant state of madness.I'm really trying to figure out what I did to Karma.For every win I get a lose, and I'm over it.
Case 1: I carefully and meticulously beat my face before God almighty to shoot and I am feel rather dandy. Hubs spots a great place to shoot ,as you can clearly see here. I'm all dolled in the woods , in Jimmy Choos ;bad choice. After shooting this look I jumped in the ride and look down at shoes. They are covered in nature's cocaine (shakes fist and yells 'son of a b$%%#!'), pollen.Not too big of deal right? Well it's gets worse.
Case 2: I ended up shooting 11 looks this weekend. Yes, I said 11.I have a special job I'm working on, but I will save that for another chat. Anywhoo, we (me and bighead) head out to look at new computers and stop by Whole Foods for some light grub. I love Whole Foods. They are bae. Everyone there is so nice to me. It's probably because I am always over dressed when I'm there. This Saturday was no different. The temperature dropped rather quickly after shooting so I grabbed a black sweatshirt, ripped jeans and some black boots. Not exactly extra right?! I then grabbed my Balmain x HM fur added big gold cross earrings (I will debut on Friday...stay tuned) and a wool boater; pulled together with a red ombre lip.I grab a slice of pizza and head to the dining area. The cashier proceeds to come over and tell me how awesome I look and how me and hubs (mostly me) seem to be just really cool people. I immediately cue up the "Awwww thanks so much!" because what else do you say to that? Fast forward I struggle through my slice of pizza (which is not normal , but I dismiss it) and head back in line for some fresh baked cookies. We were heading to the movies right after, and I refuse to pay for those trash snacks they serve. I head back in the same cashier's line as we are now bffs. She starts to smile and start convo, and guess what I do? Proceed to gag for my life (almost at the sight of her, it would seem) I have to run to the restroom and barf like a totally lame. Yes, I threw up.
I know what you are thinking and the answer is HELL NAW!! Nope I am not.lol

So back to the barfing, which I only do when I am sloppy drunk (I am a light drinker).I have been slowly detoxing since January.No alcohol,limited dairy, and no bread. I have cheated twice on the alcohol, but I was with friends; well deserved. So now if I eat anything yeasty, it makes me sick.My stomach gets sensitive as I get older which is why I decided to let these vices go.They don't love me like they used to.
I never got to apologize to the cashier for almost spewing on her, ugh! This is a typical day in the life of me; over the top fabulous with a heaping side of misfortune.I swear someone has a hex on me *mentally goes through rolodex of old boyfriends.I'm not exaggerating , there was that one time my tire fell off my car,the time I fell off the bus and broke my arm, then that time my teacher blasted my sweaty arm pits of front of the class and diagnosed me (WebMD style) with Bromihidrosis ...shall I continue?.At any rate , I have learned to live with the haute mess of a life I was given and can even laugh at my tragically embarrassing moments.
It's hard to stay sour when you look fabulous! As they say 'when life gives you lemons', (if you were me) you would squirt them in your eye, stumble and knock over a rack of something expensive;all while wearing a fur and red bottoms.
Even in my sexy look back pose, I can't keep it together.I so wanted to give more curves using my 'butt clench' patented posing technique, but the way the ground was set up...
Let's just say the heel of my Jimmy Choo was in the "sunken place".Can you guess what movie I saw this weekend? I only screamed through like the whole thing.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
