You Never Know! Michi Nogami-Marshall and Brandon Marshall Unfortunate!

26 Apr

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was hospitalized over the weekend after being stabbed in the stomach Friday night by his WIFE.  She used a kitchen knife.  Michi Nogami-Marshall claims she acted in self-defense.

She was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.   Brandon underwent surgery Friday night, and was released on Saturday.  No organs were hit, so he should be okay.

His manager issued the following statement, “This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family, thankfully he will make a full recovery.  We simply ask that his privacy is respected.”

Just married last year in July, I recently did a blog on their wonderful wedding and the fashion detailed for both the groom and bride (Wedding Bliss for Michi & Brandon with Christiano Siriano!)  So, so unfortunate and sad!  Wedding preparations and nuptials are the beginning, however if there are difficult challenges unresolved…….it doesn’t do anyone; any good..this is the worse!  My prayers are with both families for recovery and healing.

Update!!!!!!!

When the stabbing occurred back in April, Marshall himself lied to protect his wife. He claimed he fell on some glass. But Michi came clean, saying she used the knife on him in self defense. The result was police charges that were eventually dropped, but she’s been haunted by suspicion ever since.

But Michi has shown true love for the troubled Brandon through four years of his battle with BPD, a condition marked by intense bouts of anger, depression, anxiety, episodes of impulsive aggression, self-injury, and drug or alcohol abuse. And in a mark of true love, he’s come out to clear her good name — to explain that she really was defending herself from his BPD-fueled actions — even as it marks his.  Marshall explains in video!  Difficult challenge revealed.  Kudos to him for being honest, now the healing can begin!

Beauty Haute: 10 Professional Nail Lacquer

24 Apr
Pink nail polish.

When I find something out… I love to share!

Nail polish is a lacquer applied to toenails and / or fingernails for appearance, but also as nail protection.

However; doing our nails is the one thing we can do for ourselves and show that we care ..even with all the crazy stuff we do day-to-day! 🙂

If your budget is tight, you can skip all the expensive brands,  this one is great….10 Professional Nail Lacquer.  I was so surprised!  Not one of my favorite things (not just yet), but such a good buy at $2.99.

Check your CVS store; it’s  right next to the Essie’s and OPI’s, don’t overlook.

It’s a great product, my Moonlight -458 nail polish lasted a full week; with no chipping at all (with a good top coat)!  The colors are exciting, pinks, blues, reds, grays and the normal salon colors.  You will not have any problem in finding a color to blend with your fashion outfit at all!

There have been mixed reviews, stating the polish is too thin, in my opinion it’s just right.   Two coats I’d received is the right amount of coverage and completed perfectly with their topcoat!

Here’s a tip! To remove nail polish outside of your nail bed, take a Q-Tip and dip into your nail polish remover formula.

Take the Q-Tip to gently remove the polish.  Do this after your nails are completely dry though.

Please note Confetti Nail Polish is the manufactured by  same company, MBA ; the difference it’s a nail color (not a lacquer).

West Elm! Fun Recaptured through Advertising!

23 Apr

What a wonderful way to show the products being sold by West Elm!   This company really gives  a new swing to contemporary and modern ideas through furniture, linen,  home decor and accessories.

They take a stand on organic items too!  A child of Pottery Barn ®, both owned by Williams Sonoma®; West Elm has it’s own style, a unique style which I find very appealing.

I’ve shopped there many times and never disappointed, quality is definitely present.  This wonderful video directed by Andrea Gentl and Martin Hyers beautifully shows a little girl enjoying jumping and playing in bed; all depicted with linens sold by West Elm.  Fun! Fun! Fun!  The joy recaptured!

Great advertising!

ABC’s Happy Endings – Hiliarously Funny

18 Apr

Just a little Tube Talk! Did you like ABC’s Happy Endings sitcom?  I did, even though it reminds me of a little of the “Friends” platform; it has a funny and young crazy edge that had me laughing for the whole entire hour!

All the things that we worry about, marriage, having babies, lying about your age and the dating scene.  A great comedy about lovers, friends and the day-to-day stuff.

Although the sitcom had mixed reviews, let’s say give it a chance (stop comparing)!

If you need a good laugh, I recommend you watch.  Check your local listings and prepare to laugh!  I did!!!

And by the way!  The set designs are great (you know me!) 🙂

Dave   Zachary Knighton

Alex   Elisha Cuthbert

Jane   Eliza Coupe

Max    Adam Pally

Penny Casey Wilson    (my favorite)

Brad    Damon Wayans Jr.

For those of you have not seen it; here the pilot.
