I’ve Missed You So!

I’m sorry it’s been so long, but there’s no need to get so worked up…

Omg FabNerds, it has been forever! So between my crazy 24/7 2-Job summer and coming back to the fabulous state of New York where I have to finish a degree and what not, I just have not been able to really sit and blog like I should. I feel totally guilty. And awful. And bummed. I mean, this always happens. I think I’m going to blog my little heart out and then I get distracted and I look up and it’s been four months since my last post.

So here’s what I think. I think I put too much pressure on myself. I think I try to have all these crazy posting schedules and theme days, and I don’t think it helps me like it should. My new goal is to try and post once a week. I don’t know what on what day I will be posting or if it will be the same every week. I have no clue what I will be writing about.

I just want to write this blog and if I can get into a good rhythm posting just once a week for a while I think I can be happy. Writing this blog should not be stressful.

So let’s talk about this week’s post? I figured, FabNerds, that you have an idea about what “working crazy hours” and “trying to graduate college” looks like so I thought I’d update you on some other things I have been doing since my last post. Here’s the top ten…

THINGS I HAVE BEEN DOING SINCE MY LAST POST:

1. Watching LOL

If you have seen this movie please comment here or tweet me (@TheFabJessGoing) so we can immediately talk about it. I am obsessed. Did you know if was based on a French film called LOL: Laughing Out Loud? I’m hosting a theme party where we watch them back to back and compare. I will be dressed up as that little girl who looks like Joan of Arc….

2. Being G-List Twitter Famous

@TheFabJessGoing…Come on. 101 other people did it!

That’s right. As of right now, I have 101 followers– that’s right, be jelly. And not just randos, but really cool people. Published Authors, WE TV “Celebrities”, People With Awesome Taste in Television… this is the caliber of tweeters I attract. People just love my Romeo and Juliet live tweets (god, it was horrid). You should follow me too.

3. Deciding  To Finally Read Rob Lowe’s Book or Not

Rob and I are friends? He doesn’t follow me on twitter…

I just bought it on my Kindle, but I’m still unsure. Everyone says it’s fantastic, but I don’t even really know who he is. Except that he was the best part of Behind The Candelabra . What do you think FabNerds? Should I become one of RL’s friends?

4. Learning A TON About Skin Care

Like, for realz. If you want to know how to figure out your skin type and how to get on a good five-year moisturizer regime I got your back. You wanna talk super foods? Watermelon and Tomatoes, baby. I can solve everyone’s skin care issues. Most important thing I’ve learned: Shea Butter is bad for Eczema and Dermatitis. Question I Still Can’t Answer: Are Eczema and Dermatitis the same thing? Comment Bellow! 

5. Pinning Pics of Dolce And Gabbana Ads

I can’t stop. I think they are so cool. It makes me want to find really sexy Italian relatives to yell at. You can find them on my personal Pinterest HERE. And if you want to see some of the sweet pics added to the N&F Pinterest you can find some cool things HERE.

6. Working on My Senior Project

Directed by ME!

Directed by ME!

I know, I know. This isn’t supposed to be a list about school or work or both, but you’re gonna here about it eventually so why not now? I’m directing a play. Written by my friend and future Pulitzer winner. It’s about the Tower of Babel. And Lesbians. It opens in March and is going to kick ass (I hope) . Just look at the Amazballs* poster we had for auditions!

7. Online Shopping

DAMN YOU FREE SHIPPING!

It’s effing Amazon man! They make everything so easy. But I finally cancelled my Hulu Plus account, so I think I’m finally heading in the right direction. My accountant friend I went to Paris with says I should keep and expense journal. She’s not wrong. But I’m afraid to face that particular reality right now…

8. Trying to Be Best Friends with Mindy Kaling

BFFs Please?

She’s smart and pretty and funny. Her show is the shit. We’re both form kinda-Boston and have our credit card info memorized. Plus have you read this blog post about her love of Jonathan Adler? I have been in love with JA for ever! I even have one of his pillows! I think it’s destiny…

9. DOMINATING HEADS UP

I am a beast at this game, which is really cool since it’s the only game that is not Candy Land that I am good at. “Broadway Baby” and “Blockbuster” decks are my Jam. I do not even care how pathetic it is to wait around with a group of people until I can casually ask “Hey. Do you wanna play Heads Up?” only to totally crush them. I love this game and I. Do. Not. Care.

10. Sharing Inspirational/Self-Affirming Photos On Facebook 

hayy7

But I keep the privacy setting at “ONLY ME” so as to not let the world see that I need rainbow messages from “Spread Joy” to make me feel better.

…And that’s all I’ve been doing lately. Hope everything is well with you, FabNerds.

See You Next Week,

Jess

Let’s Talk About HATS, Baby!

It’s time to get real FabNerds. We’ve been on this journey a while now and I feel like I need to come out and tell you all something very personal…

I. Love. Hats.

I know, I didn’t mean to pull a Jodie Foster there, but it’s true. I am obsessed with hats. I have been for a while now and I don’t think my opinion is going to change anytime soon. I have a whole board about them on Pinterest. See, some people view hats as an accessory, but to me, hats are a way of life. Have you ever been in a fashion-crisis? You know, when you’re trying on everything you own and NOTHING seems to be doing it for you? You need to add an little bit of….something, but you don’t know what? Well, nine Jessica’s out of ten will tell you that the cure to this is actually a hat.

Don’t believe me? Well, aren’t we contrary today. Here are some reason that will change your mind and get a hat on that stubborn noggin of yours!

1. You are having a bad hair day-

 

I’m glad I’m wearing this beanie so no one can see my roots.

 

Are your locks too flat? Too all over the place? Too lazy to be washed? Stick a hat on that disgusting hair of yours and not only will you look super chic, but the source of all your anxiety will be safely hidden away.

 

2. You want people to think you are cool-

 

I wear hats, because I am amazing

Yes, Bruno Mars is already cool, but when he’s wearing a hat it gives him that added air of mystery which makes him inapproachable and therefore EVEN COOLER. And if a hat can improve Divine Perfection like Bruno Mars, think about what it can do to your image. Speaking of, you should also be wearing a hat if…

 

3. You want to elevate your social status-

 

Who cares about the rain in Spain when I’ve got this giant hat to keep me dry? And fancy.

Eliza Doolittle didn’t just learn to speak properly, remember? She rocked a mother of a hat like it was nobody’s business!

 

4. You need to remind the world that you still exist-

 

Meme us! Meme us!

Feeling invisible? Stone-cold PROOF that hats make people notice you. Not only were Beatrice and Eugenie more talked about than the exquisite Kate Middelton on her own wedding day, but there was more buzz about them than Pippa’s ass. And people really like Pippa’s ass.

 

Believe me now? Thought you would. Don’t worry. This conversation isn’t over, but I know it was a lot so I want to give you a day or two to process. While you’re working out the wonders of hats, I’ll leave you with a picture of me in one of my many favorite accessories.

May the Hats be with You,

Jessica

One of my more glamours hats. And an awful laptop reflection in my sunglasses. :(
