NYC Trip With Some Friends.

Saturday a few of my Roller Derby Girls and I took a trip to Brooklyn, NY.
To get me my Riedell R3 skates from Five Stride Skate Shop.


A few shots from the train to Manhattan.

Once we got to Manhattan we walked around a bit.

Where we ended up at the FIT Museum.
We saw two exhibits.
The His & Her Exhibit.
And the Tokyo Now Exhibit.
We couldn't take photo's there but I found some online from the Tokyo Now Exhibit.

After we left the FIT Museum we were all a bit hungry.
So we went to Whole Foods.
Where they were having there Saturday Smackdown.
Which is a department competition.
This time it was Passion Fruit.
I got two recipes.
One being Passion Fruit Dressing.
The other being Coconut Crusted Tilapia.
Those were our favorites!!

Then we stumbled upon a GREAT sushi place.
Nancy's first time using chopsticks.
She got the Kiss & Fire Roll.
I was really enjoying my sushi!!
I got the Vegetarian Delight Roll.
I've never had it with Avocado on the outside though.

A photo op for everyone's sushi!!

Everyone's cell phones and green teas. :)

After lunch we hopped on the subway to Brooklyn.
Then we got to Five Stride Skate Shop!!

I was so nervous to be back on skates after not being on them for almost 5 years!!
I was ok once I got home though.

After the skate shop adventure we stopped into Meeker Street Inside Flea Market.
Man that place is awesome!!
We found all sorts of neat stuff there!!
I'm defos going back soon.

I really want to go back and get one of these trunks.
To make it into a bench.

All in all it was a great day!!
Gumby thinks so at least!!

Today I went and got my gear for Roller Derby.
I got a Helmet,
Knee Pads,
And Elbow Pads.
I'm going to get my Wrist Guards tomorrow.

Hope you all have a great week!!

Recent Purchases and Some Bar Fun!!


I found these beauties at a Record Show and Flea Market in Asbury Park, NJ from a friend for $15.00!!
The best part is that they were exactly my size!!
Which if you love Doc Martins you'd know what I'm talking about.

I bought this skirt at the Consignment Shop down the street.
It's by LUX.
And the perfect length for Spring!!
But light weight enough for Summer.

The BF got this for me to cheer me up today.
[[ He love's Pez He-He-He ]]

Just a few shots my mom took while at the bar with my parents for a drink.
Nothing too spectacular.

I went to the Pharmacy today and noticed they had the Wet n Wild Color Icon Line.
I didn't pick anything up yet.
Since I'm still trying to use what I've got.
And I'm on a budget.
So I was behaving!!

Happy Wednesday!!

Belated Valentines Day Post &&& NYC LUSH HAUL!!!

Happy Belated Valentine's Day everyone.

 So sorry for my belated post.
I ended up going to NYC with my father, Aunt and cousin today.
To be in the audience for the Dr. Oz. Show!!!
[[ Of course I went to LUSH And got some goodies too while I was there. He-He-He ]]

Yesterday [[Feb. 14th]] the BF and I went to the Jenkinsons Aquarium.
I haven't been there in YEARS!!
But it's still just as fun as I remember it when I was a little kid.

There's me with the Despicable he won me at the arcade.
Looking like a true kid with the fish in the back round!!

My boy friend making his "GRRRRR" face with the Piranha's.

These frogs amaze me.
There so small yet so poisonous.
It's really neat actually.

A couple different shots of the Shark Tank.

Can you spot the sea horse in the coral???

Of course I got all artsy with the Whale Skull and Rib Bone.
Daddy taught his baby right!!
[[ He's a photographer. ]]
These alligators where small but still scared me.
I'm not a fan of much of anything that can swim after me then chase me on land!!
No offense to the alligators.
I just don't want to be eaten!!
Sorry for the dark Penguin photo's.
The lighting was all wonky.

There's a funny story about this seal.
Her name is Lucile the Seal.
You can't see it in the picture but one of her eyes is messed up.
She has been in this aquarium since my brother and I were little kids!!
She was in an accident and rescued and brought to the aquarium.
And has lived happily ever since.

Crabs and Turtles.

And my favorite,
The Sea Horses!!
I was so excited to see them.
I knelt and watched them for a good 20 minutes.

All in all it was a great time.
The weather was great.
The company was even greater.

It's my anti-gravity Despicable!!

The card and chocolate the BF got me.
And the two Valentines and one Easter Hello Kitty he got me.
As well as the mini rose bush.
How thoughtful of him??

This purse is handmade by a lady in NV.
My BF's mother sent it to me for Valentine's Day.
How sweet of her??
This is the card my parents got me which made me cry.

Now onto the LUSH Goodies!!

The PS I Love You Box Set.
And three Magical Mushroom BubbleBars.

The P.S. I Love You box set came with a mini Strawberry Fields Massage Bar,
A Magical Mushroom Bubble Bar,
An It Started With A Kiss Lip Tint Tin,
And a Lovebirds Soap.
All packed neatly in a cute little box.

I love the Magical Mushroom Bubble Bars.
I think they might be my favorite LUSH product EVER.
Too bad there only around for Valentines Day!!

Well I hope you all had a fab Valentine's day!!
