Just heard this story on the news about a black widow spider in a bag of grapes - I am NEVER buying grapes again and this is a legit reason a black widow can kill you with in hours (okay I don't think that's true but I can't look it up because when I google it I keep getting pictures and I cant' even stand to look at the picture due to my arachnophobia no joke I just made a breathy scream noise when scrolling down and I just saw it's creepy legs poking out BLAHHHH.

I can pictures it now I get a nice bag of grapes get a mysterious prick feel weird but don't think anything of it.  Decide to take a nap due to my sickness and I never wake up and I'm found dead weeks later with my cats eating me.  OR I see the spider and die of a heart attacked immediately.   Still takes weeks to find me, I live a lone and now I work from home, I mean really how long could I be dead before someone notices and checks on me??

If you want to read the article here is it warning there is a picture of both the grapes and the spider:

UPDATE: I now think there is a spider crawling around in my refrigerator from previous grape bags.

I know what you can get me for Christmas

This Burberry bag - it's only $1,295 on Gilt today - Ha!

LinkedIn has the best life advice

So I'm on the daily email distribution for LinkedIn and I don't know why I'm shocked but they have the best articles and they aren't all about jobs etc.  Seems I should be subscribing to as they seem to have the best articles.

Anyways if you don't get the LinkedIn emails or you don't read them there was this one great article by entitled "9 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier" below are # 3 and 5 as they were my favs.  Click here to read the whole article and all 9 daily habits.  I say take the challenge and do this for a week and see how you feel I know I'm going to!

3. Give a gift to everyone you meet.

I'm not talking about a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod. And never pass beggars without leaving them something. Peace of mind is worth the spare change.

5. Assume people have good intentions.

Since you can't read minds, you don't really know the "why" behind the "what" that people do. Imputing evil motives to other people's weird behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation.

Multi Way Tunic Sweater from Victoria's Secret

Scalloped Dress

Ahhh I think I'm in love with this dress I might need to purchase it for my 'Top of the Hub' and Classy Holiday Crawl. 

I paired this with a feathery bag, I really liked the different textures together.
And I'm all about dark lips lately I never thought I would be someone to pull it off but I might try it this holiday season. 

The dress isn't too expensive I think I totally need it right?

My love affair with Ideeli

I have been soooo good about not shopping it's been MONTHS!  However I fell off the wagon and bought this shirt from ideeli (my favorite online flash site).  I have gotten some of my favorite things from this site and the prices are great - I still cringe having to spend the close to $10 shipping but it's truly items you cant' find anywhere else at great prices unlike some other sites who I won't mention on here.
