'Dancing' Disappointment

Is anyone else disappointed that Donny Osmond won tonight's 'Dancing with the Stars' finale over singer Mya? Don't get me wrong-- Donny was a great performer, but Mya looked like she was born to dance.

Many times when I'd watch her, I couldn't even tell who the pro was and who the amateur was.

Till next season, I suppose.

American Music Awards

Every year, there is one award show that has the weirdest fashion. I believe the AMAs easily win that "honor" this year, where Bobby Trendy should have won for the category of "I don't have a mirror at home, but even if I did, it wouldn't make a difference."

And for those wondering (because I was as well), yes, Bobby Trendy is a man.

Something Lost, Nothing Gained

For some reason, I seem to lose earrings at work. The annoying thing is that instead of losing both, I lose 1 and am left with the other, not knowing what to do with it. I suppose my long hair is to blame; my earrings get tangled in it and when I brush it back, my earrings must go with it too.

Today I was wearing hoop earrings to work, and I didn't even notice that one fell out. The result: I walked around all day like a fool and no one even told me! This makes me question what would happen if I ever walked around with toilet paper on my shoe.

Upon realizing that my earring was missing (in front of a coworker), he remarked that he thought I was making a fashion statement with one earring.

Um, no one really WANTS to make such a statement, especially when I looked like Jessica Alba below:



And then I realized so many celebs actually wear one earring on purpose. This trend needs to die.

It's never too early...

...for Christmas music in November! I popped in Josh Groban's 'Noel' CD today while driving to work and happily sang screeched along to the music. I love Christmas music-- it reminds me of baking Christmas cookies as a child and having family fly in for Christmas Eve. And Christmas music is even BETTER when Josh Groban is singing...he is quite amazing. I think he could probably sing about a trash can and it would still sound amazing.

What are your favorite Christmas CDs? Any recommendations I should sample?

The results are in!

For those wondering, the results are in for this little beauty product that I bought a few weeks ago and tried: Origins GinZing Eye Cream.



The good: The cream leaves a nice, tingly feeling under the eyes and wakes you up a bit. I did notice that it reduces puffiness too, but not in a dramatic way. I think nothing beats a good night of sleep.

The bad: I thought the cream left my entire eye area way too dry overall. I didn't feel like the cream hydrated the under-eye area at all, so I had to use my regular eye cream on top of this one to do the trick.

Verdict:
Buy this product if you're looking for a good de-puffer in the morning. While it won't give you that 10-hours-of-sleep look, it does perk up eyes. If you're looking for an eye cream that moisturizers and hydrates, skip this product.

What's your definition of duet?

Happy Sunday! I am back from San Diego and had a lovely time celebrating with my girlfriends...we danced up a storm! :)

A friend sent me this video below (since my name is Jasmin). Make sure you watch it in its entirety...this guy takes "talented" to a whole new level!

Icky

I'm home sick for the week. :( Luckily, it's not H1N1...it's just a throat infection. Please pray I get better...I have a wedding to go to this Saturday!

In other news, Starbucks has their holiday cups already! Is it just me or do the holiday festivities start earlier every year? It's not even Thanksgiving yet!
