.........Love Stinks.


So. 


i hope everyone is doing good! things have been a bit battier than normal around here while we prepare for an upcoming move. (sigh-lol) dealing with contractors is a pain in the ass., and i'm tellin' ya., i swear to all that is holy, this is the LAST time i will move. evvvvvar. :)


ok., enough of that mini-tangent. *whew*

*******


On to another subject., i don't know about you but i am so sick and tired of seeing jewelry store commercials, and perfume commercials., they freakin' start up almost non-stop from thanksgiving, right on through to valentines day. UGH.....



Me and hubs don't celebrate valentines day because when you love the person you live with or are married to, Valentines' day is EVERY DAY. Its' just another one of those "retail holidays". Yet another way for us to be made to feel like shit because we may not have the "perfect lives" and "loves" and "gifts" that these dumbass commercials portray........the shit just makes me wanna hork., and i know damn well i'm not alone out there. Now., with all of that being said, if you take away nothing else from this post., remember this., You ARE beautiful, AND important AND special, don't for split second ever let some asinine ad campaign on TV or in a magazine make you feel like you're not. EVER.




So., This collection is for all of you ladies out there who share my sentiments,

i give you -

This years

ValenCrows

Heartshaped Box of Horses#@t

Love Stinks

( come on., sing it with me - you know the words...."i've had the blues, the reds and the pinks...one things for sure....LOVE STINKS" )




Umm, No...

Heartless

  6. HaHa! I love the sentiment behind this collection! I also hate moving so I'm sorry to hear your doing it. I really hate moving. I think I will die in this house and I am very happy about that. When on when will this collection be available?? I, oddly enough, love the look of that pink.

  11. LOVE it!! Brilliant names and goooooorgeous colors! :)

    Ok, I don't buy all the crap from the commercials but DH and I do celebrate V-day, but we've had fun over the years (one year I sent him on a scavenger hunt to find his card). After 20 yrs and 2 kids, it's nice to take a day (or 3) to focus just on us. Plus, Christmas is usually tight for us, so between bonus and tax return this is when we spend a little money on each other ;)

    Can't wait to get these!!

  12. Oh, these are sweet! I'm going to have to buy Heart Shaped Box of Horses#@t for my mom; her being a horse lover and a man/love hater at the moment.

    I feel you on the commercials. Though my husband and I laugh hysterically at the scrotum necklace ones - Look mommy, it's just like yours!! (Of course, I'm talking about the Kay Jewelers Jane Seymour Open Heart nonsense)

  14. And yeah, I hear you on the moving. My husband, 2.5 yr old son and I are moving from IA to CO in 4 weeks. This is after moving from CA to IA less than 2 years ago. I'm stressed and worried this is going to be a trend. :(

  15. Can I tell you how much I LOVE the fact that there's not a heart-shaped glitter in sight? I can't stand that stuff!! And thus, Heartless shall be mine. :)

    I'm actually excited for Valentine's Day this year. This will be the first time that I get to share it with someone special. But you're right, every day is Valentine's Day with the person you love. :)

  21. Where can I buy your polishes? I love them, absolutely gorgeous!

  22. Very late to the party here, but I swung by for a gander at the new spring polishes and happened to read your take on Valentine's Day which kinda winged me out.. That's straight out of one my rants. Ooohh how I like to rant. When people ask me what my partner got me for Christmas, Valentine's Day, my Birthday, etc... I tell them "Absolutely nuttin'" and you should see their faces. We don't buy each other gifts EVER. Instead we go out once and year and buy something we both want/need together. This year it was a new truck 'cause the old one was on it's way out. I'd rather spend everyday with someone who loves me every single day and doesn't try to make up for anything by buying me lavish gifts. Hell, that would just make me suspicious that I was on the way out. LoL. No offense to people who enjoy the gifting process..m'kay.. Peace!
