T.G.I.F.!

...Which of course everyone knows means Thank God I'm Fabulous!

I hope everyone has been having a great summer! For myself, I've been having a good, but very busy summer. In fact, I don't think I've even logged into Blogger more than twice since June, let alone ready anyone else's blogs! Not that things are settling down in my personal life and at work, I will be able to get back to making at least somewhat regular posts.

I'm certainly looking forward to the long weekend, and (finally!) some R&R!

August Update

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since my last post! It's seems like the summer is always the time when I drop off from blogging for a bit, but that may be because I'm doing more outside of work and have less downtime. To be completely honest, though, it was very liberating and refreshing not to be on my blog for a month, or even read other people's blogs. Now don't get me wrong, I love y'all, I really do, but everyone need s a break, even from the things they enjoy.

I've been mostly busy with traveling out of town, and I've also started on that job search I mentioned a while back.

Part of my traveling included the first vacation I've been on in three years: Virgina Beach!

Chattime Shushi Bar and Restaurant



Don't worry, I haven't forgotten y'all! I've been frequenting others' blogs while I getting my blogging senses back after my nearly three month hiatus.

Earlier this summer, I had lunch with an acquaintance at Chattime, which is a Japanese noodle restaurant and sushi bar on Penn's campus. The cool thing about this restaurant (other than the neon laden club look of the interior) is that the noodles are made right there at the sushi bar area.

I ordered the Kitchen Lunch Bento.I chose the miso soup and shrimp traiyaki. The California rools, gyazo and white rice are all included. My friend had the sushi in the last picture.

The food was ok; not the best thing ever, but also not bad. The atmosphere was very...trendy. It's a great place to go for a cool lunch spot, or light (I stress the word "light" because anyone whose eaten any amount of Japanese food knows not to expect to get full) dinner with friends, but probably not the kind of place you would take your parents, what with parents being what they are and all.

Sun Out, Guns Out


Hope everyone is enjoying all of this nice summer weather!! Sorry I haven't been around much, but I've been so busy lately. Hopefully, though, I will have some legit posts and updates soon.

Summer Work Wear Staples: Tank Tops and Tube Tops



After two years of working during urban summers (which are as hot or hotter  than summers in the South, no matter what people say!), I quickly learned how to tackle the heat with clothing that is comfy, yet can be dressed up to look professional. Two of my favorite things to wear to work when it starts to get warmer are tank tops and tube tops. "What!?! Do you work at Hooters!?!," you may ask. Of course, Hooters isn't the only place you can wear tank tops to work, but when done the right way, you can wear tank tops and even tube tops in just about any work environment. When worn over a tank top or tube top, a blazer or cardigan can make an outfit immediately office ready!
