That sunset is incredible!!! And I better hope I never come across those JIF whips…
Weekending With Rum & GlovesAugust 18, 2014
So the time has been set for when Mark and I will be moving in together……I will have to eventually be saying goodbye to my perfect Princess pad where my shoes, purses and clothes have been living for the past 4 years (since I’m pretty much never home with everything I do in one day). His place is much bigger than mine and most importantly………has two bathrooms. Now it is mission organization from here on out trying to combine two households. So naturally I have done lots of research on the holy grail of all things household. You guessed it.
So after a particularly fabulous day of work on Friday where I finally finished all my charting at 6:30…..I met Mark at Target to get some supplies. We finished out the night at Home Depot. It was a really nice night….but we didn’t have time for Bed Bath & Beyond…
Anyways. So this pin in regards to showers. It 100% works. All you need is two things.
I found the cotton coil at Sally’s Beauty Supply. After casing the place up and down every aisle I found some gem of an employee that worked there who begrudgingly showed me where to find this golden ticket.
So first pour some bleach into a container and then dunk your cotton coil in there. Rim the outside of the tub with the bleached cotton. Use a Q-tip to jam that cotton into the corners. Leave overnight.
The next day (with gloves on again). Pull out all the cotton. Then bask in your Pinterest glory cleaning Martha Stewart ways.
I’m going to spare you from the before and after pics just know it was pretty amazing. Insiders tip. Use industry strength gloves and a mask. Like I got a painters mask and eyewear while executing this task. Bleach is the real deal. You don’t need to be inhaling that or your it accidentally splash into your eyes. Pinterest for the win.
Oh while I was perusing through Target I saw this.
I mean honestly. That would not last one night in my house. It would be like party for one eating a whole jar of peanut butter off a spoon am I right?
Saturday I was graciously gifted by Nichole tickets to the Summer of Rum Fest. Uber cabs has recently come to Tampa so I was excited to try them. When we were up in DC a little while ago the Uber cabs were nice black sedans. Did Tampa miss the memo or is this everywhere now? Some rando chic in her Jeep Liberty came and picked us up?
I mean the app is pretty sweet. You can see where all the cars are and you request they pick you up by just clicking request UberX. What I thought was cool is you could put in your ending point and it gives you an estimate of the price aka you are not at the mercy of the cab driver and the running meter. So basically you don’t have to call yellowcab….then wait on hold forever for the one super friendly operator to pick up and then wait a half hour for a cab to come and get you. I had a free coupon code so the ride was free. If I wasn’t with Mark I may have been a tad freaked out. It is seriously some chick in her car driving you around. However she got us downtown no problem and since Mark used my personal referral code the ride was free for him and then I got another free ride. Here is the code amandap96 it is good for up to $30 off your first ride.
The event was pretty cool in downtown Ybor. They had lots of food trucks set up and they definitely had some heavy handed pours that is all I have to say. It looked like a frat party where they were serving hunch punch by the end of the night……if you catch my drift. I loved the reggae singers.
