(NY) Bubble Guy

I was walking around last week and I saw this amazingness at Union Square. Such a simple gesture but so inspirational and appropriate to those sensitive enough to notice. I am always looking for a sign. I was feeling exceptionally unsure about what New York holds for me and what I should be doing. But when I saw this man, I realized what I have known all along and maybe kind of forgot momentarily. People tell you to be safe, have a plan B and ask yourself 100 x if you are sure when you already knew from the get go that you were. I think it take only 5 seconds to know know you have to GO FOR IT. But it may take 5 days, 5 months or even 5 years of reasoning and back pedaling until you actually have to courage to do it. I was on the phone with my friend and he told me the thing he loves the most about me is that I really don’t get a *beep* and what I want I truly go for it, knowing that you it will work out.
I truly believe in ‘Manna from Heaven‘. It comes in all kinds of ways, shapes and forms especially when self doubt is at an all time high and opportunities seems to be slim to none.  Sometimes, it truly is a sign like this:

and sometimes, it is less obviously but no less entertaining like this:

I stood in awe, like the child in the green jacket at just stared at the multitude of colors and the bubble coming to life. Many many people walked on by, hurried to their destination or loudly talked on their cellphones or was too busy texting to even look up to notice. I love things like this because when you are truly sensitive to the world around you, you will see, hear, smell, taste and feel more.

Moral of the day: Don’t let anyone burst your bubble.

Ring a Ling

I always thought that department stores sold really bland and boring generic stuff. While I was on Facebook that little side box suggested I check out ShopNBC. To my surprise, it was actually really cool with giveaways and a bunch of updates. When I went to their actual site, I was blown away by their jewelry section. I’m absolutely in love with their selection of gold jewelry, especially their rings! The blend of chunky gems and gold shine just worked so well together. Since it is online and not everything is as nice as it seems, I read the reviews on the 14k gold citrine ring.  I love my Citrine… it’s the Gemini stone. And i love cocktail rings, that is definitely my signature piece when I am on the mic, hosting events.

I was thoroughly impressed that it received all 5 stars and that everybody loved the ring. Same thing with the topaz and multi-gemstone ring, which is just so unique and colorful!  

I haven’t bought anything from them yet but these rings are just so gorgeous! Still adding to the wishlist!  I wear a size 6 ring. Thank you in advance. hee hee

You can follow them on Twitter. ShopNBC they tweets almost as much as I do! Almost…
