Friday Smiles

I'm not going to lie, this week has been pretty rough getting back into the swing of things after experiencing all that New Orleans has to offer last weekend. I have so much catching up to do it's made me lose my mojo for several things including blogging so I'm taking a little break from the usual posts and leaving you with five smiles for the weekend.

#1: If someone notices you with an open zipper, answer proudly *shaking your head*: professional habit.

#2: A bachelor is a man who believes in life, liberty and the happiness of pursuit.

#3: Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

#4: Old people always poke me at weddings (in my case, baby showers) saying "you're next". So I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

#5: This is my husband.

Happy weekend and hopefully I'll be back in full swing next week!

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!!
