Pieces of Life

Happiest Thanksgiving and Many Blessings To You and Yours!

give thanks

I can’t believe it! Another year almost over!

I’m thankful for so many things in my life the first of which is the fact that everyday I open my eyes, get out of my bed, and have a new chance to greet the world and about 99.9% of those days I greet it with a smile. Because my dear, dear friends, life was meant to be smiled and laughed through.

You don’t really need a turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie or even a special day to be grateful and thankful for all you have. Please find joy in the little things, remember to be thankful for all things. Be it the tiny stuff like that bite of delicious bagel you had this morning for breakfast or the big things like the beautiful family and friends you share your life with.

I’m lucky. I have a wonderful family that cares about and adores me and that I get to equally love, care, and adore back. I have incredible friends who aren’t even friends but more like extended family. And most important I have my online life that I get to share with all of you daily. Everyday you let me into your life is a blessing. You smile with me, laugh over the silly stuff, geek out over the newest TV show, game, or book, and of course, we get to drool all over makeup together. I can’t believe I get my “real” friends and family and I’m lucky enough to have my extended online ones as well, ALL of YOU!

I’m blessed to say the least.

I’m thankful to be here, right now, healthy, alive, and able to type this message to you. No one knows what tomorrow brings that’s why today you have to live like it might be your very last day to enjoy everything you have and to realize how lucky you truly are. Ease your troubled mind for the day, smile and remember to laugh often because it truly is the best medicine in the world and remind yourself you have a new beginning each and every day of your life. Use that time to be the best person you can be and remember to be thankful for the time you have because life is a very short fleeting moment. You blink and time flies by.

Use Thanksgiving as a reminder to be thankful but use everyday as a day to remember that you’re blessed to be alive.

May your Thanksgiving be filled with wonderful food, great friends, lovely family, and most important thanks you woke up this morning, opened your eyes, and had the ability to pop out of bed and start a new day! Every single day you get a brand new beginning. That means if you screw it up today you still have a blank chalk board to start ALL over again in the morning. My parents will hate me for saying it but I’m not a religious person but isn’t it a miracle we can just start fresh every single day? Use each of your days wisely, they end too soon!

I leave you with a powerful message from Matisyahu because he explains it a lot better than I ever could.


Happiest Hallloween!

Happy Halloween!

May it be filled with the macabre, the spooky, the creepy, the crawly, and all the snack size snickers your little stomach can handle!

This is like Christmas for me, favorite Holiday ever! :)

Enjoy it and revel in the magic of the day!


I Bark Therefore I Am


Never Forgotten

My little city always lands on its feet.

My heart goes out to those who had family, friends, and loved ones that suffered through the tragedy of 9/11.

As a New Yorker (bred, born, and raised) I’m proudest of the way we always have had the ability to pull together in times of need.

Never forget the bad times, always remember the good ones, and carry on, life is for living.


Good Night, Oh Wait It’s Morning Right?


Tired yet some what alive Muse as seen above.

What the hell time is it anyway?

Makeup-less, jet lagged, confused about the time zone, puffy eyed, and ready to grab some shut eye but I thought I’d say a quick hello and tell you I missed you all so much! I literally just stepped through my door not 20 minutes ago proceeding to throw my luggage on the floor, wash my face, and I’m pretty sure everything else can wait until I’ve grabbed a few Zzzzs!

Talk to you all shortly!

P.S. Yes, I know about the new Doctor! The bookies in London were having a field day with it! But more on that later……!
