A Look Inside Lady Gaga's Workshop !!

I had a blast in NYC this past weekend!!  It was the first time I had visited the Big Apple during the holiday season and I wasn't disappointed!  One of the first stops on my trip was to the flagship Barney's stire on Madison Avenue.   Lady Gaga colaborated with the iconic department store to put together hundereds of fun items in all price ranges for a limited time.  25% of the sale of these items goes to her Born This Way Foundation.  You can check out the Barney's website here for more information.   Check out my pictures from my visit ot Lady Gaga's workshop for a sneak peek inside!  It was fabulous!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! Gratitude is Everything!

I have always been a big believer in gratitude!!  I try and start each and everyday being thankful for all that I have.  it really starts my day off the right way!!  I also think it's important to thank those around us for everything they do!!  Even the smallest gesture of thanks can make someone's day!!  Yesterday this happened to me when I went to my mailbox and found a small envelope.  I was not expecting anything special , but when I opened it I found the most lovely thank you note from Taylor Swift!  Yes, the Taylor Swift who I had the pleasure of meeting last month when she was at the Frank Erwin Center.  This lovely thank you card turned what had been a stressful , crazy day into a fun and exciting one!!  I posted a few pictures below to share with you!! 

That is what gratitude does, no matter where it comes from, it's pretty powerful stuff!!  I want to thank you , our loyal Majic 95.5 listeners for your friendship and for listening everyday.  It really does mean the world to me!!  Happy Thanksgiving!!

Colored Toilet Paper Is Back!!

It's back!!  After many years of being taken off the market because the color dyes were said to be dangerous, colored toilet paper was taken off the market.  I remember our bathroom was pink and we always had the matching TP.  Well it looks like it's back in a bigger, bolder and brighter way!!  A company called Extra Colorful has a new line of vibrant toilet paper, even black!!  It's is completely non toxic and said to be soothing too!!  The only problem I have is the $6.99 price tag for two rolls!!  Check out some of the colors below and on their website here!

Will Nail Polish For Men Catch On?

 Look out ladies!!   We've got some competition in the nail polish department.  A men's grooming company called Evelution Man has come out with a line of nail polish for men!!  I've know rock stars like Steven Tyler wear nail polish and it seems that Johnny Depp and David Beckham are fans of this line of nail colors, but the guy next door?  I don't think so, though I do think a manicure looks great on a man!  What do you think?  Check out the full Evelution Man line here!

A Feel Good Video For Veteran's Day!!

In honor of Veteran's Day I wanted to share an adorable video with you.  It is of a 2-year old girl being read a special bedtime story by her daddy ,who is a U.S. Airman far from home. I think it really shows the sacrifice that military families make when their loved ones are overseas defending our country. 
On this Veteran's Day, let us keep the men and women who serve and have served our country in our thoughts in prayers.   As you can see here, they truly give up so much to protect our freedom!
