Surviving Beverly Hills: Rockstars & Bitches

A girl with a dog and a blog

Earlier this week, I was invited to a schmoozing event in Beverly Hills at the Four Seasons Hotel. I met some exciting people including chatting it up with Shirley Jones and Marty Ingel (just another evening hanging out with an Oscar winner and her comedian husband). They were great and he had me laughing! But, if I had a dollar for every time someone (especially older gentlemen) ask why I am still single or what I do working in social media, I would be filthy, stinking, snarking rich! So, I put Marty to the test and asked if he knows… Continue Reading

Online Dating Nightmare #1,199

Did I ever email you? NEVER!

Hope you all had more fun than I did yesterday. As some of you know, a virus has totally infected AOL in their server. Before, you make some smart-ass comment let me say that I have had AOL since I was 15. It was “MelB” but I hated the spice girls so that was not the premise behind the username. Anyway, I HIGHLY suggest you change passwords and keep up to date with old emails or accounts on websites. For the average person, this is annoying. For me it is a nightmare! Obviously, working in social media means I have… Continue Reading

Happy Whatever Holiday You Celebrate Without Me Insulting You!

HACK OFF

I can’t believe it is already hump day, the middle of spring break for you lucky young people, 2 days into the trek through the desert for those who eat unleavened bread, and almost hipity-hopity time! I just bought some Bamboo plants at Lowes (they are good luck plants because they barely need to be watered to survive -this is already good luck in my book) and saw eggs that actually hatch flowers. I want one. I mean I do! How cool -eggs that hatch flowers. I either need sleep or need to get out more if eggs entertain me… Continue Reading

The Snark Tank: Bull’s Eye vs. Bull Sh*t

The Snark Tank

I get asked, “What does a blogger do?” several times a day. It is shocking to me but some people still have the preconceived notion that bloggers are like digital scrap-bookers, sitting in large walk-in closets with laptops and piles of crate paper creating origami birds and posting them on the Internet for their friends and family to feel obligated to look at. Sure, there are foodie bloggers who are physically unable to stick any morsel of food in their mouth without documenting every moment of the experience (just eat it – don’t share unless I can actually taste the… Continue Reading

16 Things Not To Do At (Any/Social Media) Conference

Pick this instead

1. Not knowing your competition. Know if anyone is dominating your niche in the market. I am 70% sure there may be someone doing what you think you have created. Can’t you hear Drunk Uncle from SNL saying “I’m prrrrrrrreetttttyyyy suuuuuurrrrrree…..” someone is already doing that? Do your research! 2. Do not wear high heels during the day so you look like a wounded stork walking through the hotel. This will make people notice you but not in a good way and then you can’t attend the rest of the conference and have to call in wounded the second day…. Continue Reading

My 2 Cents: Rocking Social Media

Mayor Social Media Marketing World

Being a flytrap for stupid people on a daily basis allows me no shortage for writing material. I will get into that a little further when I return to the place where my clothes live. Also, known to some as “home”. I have been traveling so much that Southwest sends a few emails a week to inform me “Your trip is around the corner” while I am still on a trip. Whatever? Home is where the heart is or where my clothes and purses live. Right? But, I thought I would share this golden nugget of knowledge with all of… Continue Reading

Vapor Couture Product Review: Baton vs. Bling

Vapor Couture Maximale Kit

I know that I have been addressing several different topics lately. But, I always try to be honest with my reviews of products and give you my snarky opinion. This is no different. Also, I am aware that there is a movement to ban vap’ing but an ecig helped my friend quit smoking and she had the nasty habit for 20 years. In my last post about Vapor Couture, I told you that I would review and get back to you. Remember, Vapor Couture is the only electronic cigarette designed exclusively for women and I they nailed that part in… Continue Reading

16 Things I Pack But Never Wear While Traveling

Teddy Pillow

Tomorrow, I leave for San Diego to attend Social Media Marketing World and excited to meet some more people in my field. What I am not looking forward to is packing. I mean let’s be honest – I am living out of a suitcase in my spare bedroom from my last trip. My bathroom products are still in protective double plastic bags in my other sink. I double bag all my products – I am a product whore – we have already established that but each lotion, remover and whatever else l think I am going to need while on… Continue Reading

Wellness® Pet Food: The only food for Teddy Brewski

Wellness Pet Food

You know that Teddy Brewski is my number one fan and the second most important male in my life (besides my father). So, when I saw the opportunity to post about Wellness® Pet Food and the importance of healthy nutrition for my best friend – I needed to chime in. When he was just a baby puppy I was totally overwhelmed with the choices of dog food. After trying several all natural foods (and surviving the stench that followed) I finally found Wellness® Pet Food. Well, Wellness dog food is good for Teddy Brewski, his tummy and for my nose….
