Guest Post: Hey it's OK! by Krystal

Happy Friday 13th! I actually love this day because I was born on the 13th so I've always believed it's a lucky day for me.  

I have a special lady taking over my blog today. Krystal is witty, pretty and her sense of humor will surely give you a good ab workout so hop over to her blog and show some love. I'll let her take it from here...


Hello readers of Martinis and Bikinis! I'm Krystal and I blog over at The Kay Times. I'm so excited to be guest posting for Emily while she's away on vaca (Jealous! Seriously she takes the best vacations). I've been reading Emily's blog even before I started my own and I was hooked and shocked from the moment I read that she was from Trinidad, which is where I'm from. The fact that she has one of the catchiest blog names and is one of the nicest bloggers out there doesn't hurt either!

It's no secret around my blog that I read celebrity magazines. A lot. If any of you have ever read Glamour Magazine, you would probably already know that they have a satirical column that I love called "Hey it's Ok!" I love reading them (most are hilarious) so I recreated my own!
... to have your breakfast at 12 noon because you didn't have a second to sit and eat breakfast because you got to work late because of traffic. Again.

... to eat dessert for dinner on that same day because healthy eating on that day was already shot to hell and because well who needs an excuse for dessert.

... to decide to stay home on a weekend because watching house hunters and reading seem more appealing than getting all dressed and made up for another night out ... Also, those trashy reality TV shows on the DVR aren't going to watch themselves #I'mold.

... to be counting down until Scandal is in season again ... or any Fall TV shows for that matter because Summer TV sucks. Big time.

... to laugh to yourself when that girl who is all dolled up (with a full face of makeup ... fake lashes included) at the gym trips and almost bites it while trying to do a glamorous and sexy run on the treadmill ... it might be ok to laugh out loud too. I wont judge.

... to sit out the gym for the day because you're tired. Or lazy. Or annoyed by girls like the one above.

... to leave your car unwashed for three weeks ... even if you car is navy blue and every speck of dirt shows up. Hey it'll rain eventually!

... to call on your mum every single time you have a problem. Even at 28.

... to save baby names in the notepad app on your phone although you are newly single and have zero babies ... or maybe this is just creepy? #babyfever

... to shop online like its your job and buy things that you absolutely do not need because of one word: SALE!

... to turn off the phone, TV, and all other electronic devices and instead enjoy and appreciate the things and people around you ... or take a nap.

... to be yourself no matter what. Remember, "Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." Also, in the words of Dr. Seuss:

Once again thank you Emily for having me!!


  1. I still call my mom with every last problem. She makes everything better!

  2. I swear to you that every single time I have motivation to wash my car it rains. Like it's raining right now and all this week I promised myself I would get my car cleaned this weekend. It's just not going to happen now though.


  3. Love it! And three weeks? TRY THREE MONTHS for a car wash, oh yeah baby.
    Dear Krystal, Stop tempting me with the word SALE, love your friend on a spending freeze...

  4. I have had my car for nearly 7 years and I think I've washed it 5 times. Does that make me weird? I just never see the point when, ya know, it'll rain eventually :) yes to so many of the rest of these. Hope you got a chance to eat breakfast today!

  5. One of my favorite quotes. Love this list Krystal! House Hunters and books/mags over going out is basically what I do most Friday nights. Cheers.

  6. Yeah!!!! Great post girl!!!! Ummmm I call my mother about everything the poor thing sometimes she gets the worst from me. I have some baby names on the side shhhhhh we can't tell Mark ;-)

  7. House Hunters!!! YES!!!! Give me all the HGTV! And Scandal! I cant even! Waiting is forever!

    I cal my mom for everything. She is my best friend!

    3 weeks of an unwashed car? Oh honey, try like 7 or 8 months because that was how long it had been since I washed mine before two weeks ago!

  8. House Hunters and books trumps all!! Every time i do get my car washed it rains so yeah I'll just wait for rain!

  9. i do the baby name thing too! oops. it originally was "puppy names" if that is any better... also, i think we already know i totally agree with you on the "sale" thing. ;)
