Let’s Be Friends

I recently met someone new (aka Wonderful) – educated, funny, employed, age appropriate and a homeowner. After a wonderful, what I believed to be a first date (it wasn’t) – Wonderful told me that the only thing we could be was friends. YES, I was offered the dreaded “let’s be friends”. Friends?

After asking for clarification on what “friends” entails. I was told – going out to activities, lots of kisses, spending time together, and getting to know each other. Just no titles.

I thought about it and I’m trying it out ………. for now.

Concert Review: 30 Seconds to Mars Concert

Concert Review: 30 Seconds to Mars Concert

There was magic as each band took to the stage and the first note of music started. I recently had the pleasure of going to a 30 Seconds to Mars concert and I loved it! I forgot all about my issues and whatever was going wrong in my life. I listened to the lyrics, bobbed to the music and just got lost in enjoying that moment in time as the bands shared their musical gift with us (the audience).

I bought chicken fingers, French fries and a bottle of water – the perfect pre-concert meal! The cashier opened the bottle of water in front of me and then kept the cap. I was weirded out and asked why to which he responded that the policy is for caps to be given only when the last band has played.

The first band was Joywave, they are from Rochester, New York and the members consist of Daniel Armbruster (vocals), Joseph Morinelli (guitar), Kevin Mahoney (bass), Benjamin Bailey (keyboards) and Paul Brenner (drums). I fell in love with the song Destruction and now it’s added to my morning getting hyped to take on the day playlist.
The next band was Misterwives, a band from NYC, New York. The band members are: Amanda Lee Duffy (vocals), William Hehir, Etienne Bowler, Marc Campbell, Jesse Blum, and Mike Murphy. Amanda Lee Duffy owned the stage, she did high kicks and was so full of positive energy. At the end of their set Amanda and two of the guitarists got drums and did their thing in unison, they were amazing!

Walk The Moon was next, they are a band from Cincinnati, Ohio and the members are: Nicholas Petricca (vocals), Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, Eli Maiman. I loved the song One Foot!

Thirty Seconds to Mars came on and the magic continued. I found out that the band consists of two brothers Jared Leto (vocals) and Shannon Leto (drums). I fell in love with the band on the fact that it was two siblings working together. My favorite song was This is War.

I highly recommend earplugs, in order to save your hearing! Being a big woman I was so happy that I was able to fit in the seat but my arms did touch my neighbors on both sides and next time I will buy at least one extra seat so that I am super comfortable. There was magic when I experienced live music and I plan on going to another concert in the near future.

My first POF date – The Chef

I joined the world of Plenty of Fish (POF), an online dating site, after hearing decent outcomes from a friend. I went on a date within a few days with a chef. We ate at Smashburger. He looked like his pictures and throughout the time I was unsure about if he was into me. Chef did end up sending his food back for being too salty. After we finished eating Chef had us walk around the back at an office building near Smashburger. He held my hand immediately, we walked around  and kissed several times. All in all, I had a nice time!

He asked me out on a second date for the next day but he canceled later on because he was tired. We talked for a few more days and the second date idea he pitched was meeting at a local motel and giving me a full body massage. I declined and started suggesting date ideas that did not involve intimate settings but he kept bringing it back to a motel. Since we were clearly looking for different things; I ended up blocking him and moving on.

I will not do things that I do not want to do in order to please a man I am interested in. This experience did not leave a bad taste in my mouth and I am looking forward to my next date with someone new.

Happy dating everyone!

I went to a make-up store at the mall recently and the make-up woman was actually helpful! I wanted one thing to put on my face. I wanted a liquid foundation because I read somewhere that powder sets in the lines and makes any lines that much more pronounced. So of course the liquid foundation did not go as dark as I needed it but thankfully the powder one was dark enough for my skin.
I went to a different store and got the foundation brush and a hydrating primer. Yes I ended up with two products but I think that I’ll be able to manage it – I already put moisturizer on my face so now I’ll just switch to the primer instead.
Here’s to an even complexion!
