Trying to be #Fabulous like @OfficialMsPiggy…#TheBestThingAboutThanksgiving

11/23/2011

By: Angel Elexa

Yeah, it’s sad!  I am the ripe age of Flirty 31 and too excited to the see the NEW Muppets Movie this Thanksgiving Holiday! Ms. Piggy is one of my long time favorite muppet.  She has style, grace and a bit of a temper…but I ain’t mad at that.  Sometimes we as women have to be a bit willing to put our Stiletto down and lay down the law. 

With that being said, Ms. Piggy is back starring in yet another Muppets Movie alongside her Green Prince Charming, Kermit the Frog.  Many designers have stepped up to make sure that Ms. Piggy is Fabulous for her debut.  The famous makeup company, MAC, even made Ms. Piggy her own line of products, while InStyle, provided her with her own layout in the magazine.  Other designers have taken on the task of redesigning Ms. Piggy’s wardrobe since she is a high-profile #Fashionista.

See her outfit below designed by an up and coming fashion mogul in Canada. I liked his demure, yet fashion forward frock the best.

Fashion Designer- Jeremy Laing : “In my earliest memory of Miss Piggy, I find her lounging in a marabou-feathered robe, pink of course. As she’s gotten older I can only imagine how much more she values her lounge time, and so I propose a robe gown. Because even on the red carpet, or pink as the case may be, a piggy deserves every comfort.”

Miss Piggy’s critique: “Moi in a shade other than neon-tinged pink, and with nary a sparkle to be seen? Hard to imagine! And yet, with his exquisite eye for texture and tailoring, Jeremy Laing has opened my eyes to the possibilities that lie beyond all that glitters. Most of all, I simply love the way the dress moves with moi. Très importante fashion tip: Always make sure that your dress moves with you. Trust me: If you move and the dress stays behind, scandal ensues.”

Trying to Get Outta the House…#Friday #Night #Houston…#Free #BadTeacher Viewing

 FREE Midnight Showing of Bad Teacher

You know we love free! I can’t wait to see this movie.  All my friends and family are teachers and I have a distinct feeling this movie will remind me of one of them.  It looks to be about a girl who finds herself stuck in the teaching industry, but wishes to have lots of money. The two don’t usually mix, unfortunately. I wanted to see this movie when it first came out, but I was preoccupied.  Now’s here’s our chance!  We found this deal on  FreeSampleFreak.com. Sign up and get emails daily and save money.  Gotta keep your money, right?!  Or as much of it as possible?  There’s nothing wrong with having fun on a dime or for Free!
 
We tried the link and it’s legit…at least for Houston, TX locations.  Type in your zip code and see what’s available in your area.   Just print your pass and get your butt there a little before midnight tonight.  Seating is limited so be there early to be first in line to get your seat.  Just because you RSVP’d doesn’t usually mean anything at these free pass shows.
 
Hope you enjoy!  Hit us back up if you go!  

 FREE Midnight Screening of the movie Bad Teacher. Go here and enter your zip code to find a showing near you!

#Trying to Keep My Money…#FlirtyFinances in #Houston

07/22/2011

By: Angel Elexa

Money….It’s something we have to think about on a daily basis.  Where is it going to come from, how it will be used, and is there enough of it?  I’m often plagued with those questions, especially in this economy.  As you get older and enter into your later twenties and early thirties, you begin to worry about what exactly to do with your money and how to prepare for the future.  Bump a rainy day fund, I gotta save for retirment, right?!  And, how do I save for both when I already live paycheck to paycheck?

All good questions…I have actually sought  investment and budget advice from a financial consultant.  It’s just too much for me to handle sometimes…LOL  But, the main focus here is to be Smart & Savvy with  money and know that we need to leave more to our families than just bills, bills, bills.  Consider getting the financial help you need and get your questions answered today.

Check out this video from ABC Houston.  OMG….Alison, my neighbor and Houston Based Realtor, is featured.  She was selected in the dog park to discuss the country’s financial condition and how it has affected her investments.

She looks amazing, as we all should when we skirt about town.  Here’s a FlirtyThirty Soror representing the sisterhood well and speaking eloquently on such a hot topic near and dear to our hearts.  Here’s to looking Fabulous and being Flirty with our Finances.  Who says looking good and being fiscally smart isn’t Fun?!

#Trying to Kick it….The End of the Week is #LikeNothingElse…

07/15/2011

Awww Suki Suki!  It’s the Weekend, Baby!  TGIF, For Real!  We made it, y’all!  See how the rest of the weekend is gonna play out for you.

Friday & Saturday- HAPPY

As you can see, we have made it to the end of the week and look at the smile on that face!  Too excited to be free to do what you want to do….even if it is just running errands around town on Saturday.  It’s your time and you can wake up at your leisure….Hopefully!  Songs were made about the weekend.  It’s Friday and I’m ready to swang. Pick up my girls and hit the party scene…Tonight, ohohoh, It’s Alright!-AALIYAH   Make sure to hit up a daytime party for me and get your fly accessories with TryingTwenties.com.

Sunday – WORRIED

Well, look it’s Sunday again.  Where did the last two days go?  Oh no, now you’ve started thinking about all the stuff you have do during the week.  School, Work, the kids, oh my!  How can you enjoy this last moment of your weekend without worrying.  I don’t know if you can. It’s called Sunday Anxiety!  It begins to take over you because you got up early, went to church possibly, cooked your evening meal, maybe even hung out with some friends for brunch.  You’ve had you last bit of weekend fun and you realize it has to come to an end…..And then….you move into the next phase…..

Sunday Evening – RAGE

Oh, No!  It’s time to go to bed.  You are really upset now.  Why is it that we go through this every week?  There has never been a day in my work career that I’ve felt joy about going to the job on Monday.   It requires prayer and meditation to just have enough strength to get out of the bed on Monday and make it in one time….LOL  Don’t trip, I’m glad I have a job, but I’m Mad I gotta go.  Anybody know of a job where I can work from home? Maybe that would ease the tension.

LIVE Life, Have a Great Weekend….And a Happy Monday!

#Trying to See #HarryPotter…

07/15/2011

We are here at the most anticipated event of the year! Yeah, I said it. We are watching the ending of Harry Potter’s story tonight.

Actually, we were excited to be invited by Liquid Soul Media to preview the end of the magical era of wizardry, life lessons, friendships, and good vs. evil. Will Harry and his devoted sidekicks, Hermione and Ron, defeat Lord Voldemort and trump his return to power? IDK, but we love the imagery and the journey you go on while meeting new allies and reconnecting with old friends!

Plus, it’s nice to be VIP at one of my fav movies. We were greeted with a Legendary Adventure Book recapping all the movies, t-shirts, caps, keychains, Harry Potter Glasses and best of all premier select seating in our own non crowded theater! And the best thing of all is that we get to see Part 1 before seeing the premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2.

I gotta go! No cell phones, right? Go see the midnight show of Harry Potter. It’s sure to be thrilling and entertaining.

LIVE Life…and get out the house!

#Trying to Make It Through….#Alliwantis

07/13/2011

For the week to be over!  It’s Wednesday.  Do you think I’m right on how you felt on Monday and Tuesday?!  This is definitely for those of us who have a 7-6 (putting in OT to get ahead of the game), a crazy professor, a raggedy boyfriend and an unappreciative manager.  And you can’t seem to understand why in the hell you are enduring the crap. 

Wednesday – CONFUSED

Cause you just don’t know whether to still be Mad or Happy that it’s the middle of the week. The jury is still out on that one.  Usually as you start making plans for Happy Hour on Thursday or Going out on Friday, or Hanging out on Saturday, you begin to come around and feel a little better.  Or you sway back to angry because you have to hang with the crazy in-laws, go grocery shopping or work on the weekend.

Thursday – DEVIOUS

Cause you know you’re about to get into something.  Either you’re about to kick someone in their teeth or stab them with a pencil at the job OR you can’t wait to get out there tonight and get a drank.  Yeah, I said DRANK (not drink).  My grown and sexy females get this! Either way you ain’t right…LOL  Just keep it classy 🙂

Stay tuned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday’s emotions.  I’m thinking you are feelin’ me on this one.  Hang in there! Life gets better  and when it’s your time to shine, you’ll rise on queue. 

LAUGH About It….Because sometimes you just got to!
