Refresh is defined as:

Verb: Give new strength or energy to; reinvigorate

Noun: An act or function of updating the display on a screen.

That made me laugh.

As you recall, February was “move-on” month, January was… well January was January, but I forgot to mention that March is “refresh” month.

Now, you may be thinking naming months is silly, but it’s kind of like a reminder to work for something and a way to gage progress. We create goals or want to improve all the time, and for me it helps to create a theme – like refreshing – and go from there. If it works for you too, great join the refreshing party. If you’re bored with my month-naming, then come back tomorrow when I’ll tell you something completely unrelated.

Anyway, I know it’s already the 11th of the month (though I have no idea how that happened) but I’m trying to re-fresh my mind and my body.

Falling into the writer role at Red Carpet Tips is doing a lot for the “refreshing my mind” goal. I can’t remember the last time I wrote this much, or actually had this much to do. Sometimes that ┬ácan be stressful, ┬ábut it’s better than the opposite.

For the “refreshing my body” goal, I’m back at boot camp for 2 weeks – including yesterday’s workout on the beach. Was it smart to workout in sand while barefoot with a healing broken toe? No. But, I now realize how close I live to the beach and plan to workout there more often.

I’m also refreshing my face with new makeup (finally used my christmas gift cards!) and amazing swag from my Oscar Lounge weekend.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to KiwiFox products, and by introduced I mean given full size “samples” of both the dark circle remover and the moisturizer.

I’ve been using the dark circle remover for a week and the woman at the MAC store yesterday told me I didn’t have much darkness under my eyes. That’s amazing for an insomniac like me.

I just got the moisturizer in the mail the other day and my skin feels very soft and it smells like Kiwi, so I’m super pleased. Plus, you know HD cameras aren’t getting any blurrier, so I have to combat wrinkles now.

That’s my refreshing post.

The Busiest Girl In The World

3 Comments

No, right now I am not the busiest girl in the world.

In fact, for the past 12+ hours I’ve been sitting in a room full of walkie talkies. But honestly I’m pretty happy to be here.

Since last week I’ve been incredibly excited about my new internship at Red Carpet Tips. I think it’s incredibly funny that my first job reporting is also a writing job. Finally I feel like my two college educations melded together and found me a job.

As I mentioned before though, this is an internship. Which means what you think it means, no money. Which in all honesty doesn’t bother me until I realize I can’t afford to live. Then it’s a slight problem.

Side note: this is when I would be happy to discuss how I feel about communism. But that’s another story.
Anyway, so I’ve magically extended my $$ in three ways since I got my position.

1-the best thing that I ever EVER came across, Foodbuzz’s 24×24 program where they PAY me to throw a party and write about it. Sometimes I don’t believe it’s real, then get excited when my bank account revives.

2-I’m getting all my money back from the government! I’ve never felt so good about being poor. Also, thank you dad for turbo-taxing my many w-2’s from multiple states.

3-and 3, where I’m sitting right now in the basement of the Orpheum theater in downtown LA working the LA auditions for So You Think You Can Dance. And I’m already making overtime. Yes I’m sitting here as walkie talkie security for the next three days, but guess what else I’m going? Earning May’s rent!

Happy me. Plus since that little baby toe is still twisted and blue, sitting for three days might be a good thing.

I was really crabby. I was still sick from the weekend, super tired and bored and feeling restless and irritated.

So like many times when I feel this way, I went on Craig’s List. Which kind of seems counterproductive, I mean, how often do you hear of Craig’s List success stories?

Well, you can add 1 story to the list. I read a post about someone searching for a red carpet reporter for the next night (Thursday). I figured it wouldn’t hurt to apply and maybe if it happened I wouldn’t be so crabby the next night. In less than 10 minutes I got a phone call, which I let go to voicemail, because you just never know… but the message was the most flattering message ever. “I just loved your demo and I think you’re perfect for our site,” said Miriana, the voice behind the message.

I called her back and the rest is history.

Ok, just kidding, you don’t really know what happened, but I’ll try to be quick and to the point. I’m now interning at the Charlie Lapson Group – in the LA fashion district. Yes, me, Miss Pajamas, is working in a fashion showroom. The group developed a website a few months ago, RedCarpetTips.com, and is working on making it amazing with articles and actual Red Carpet interviews – enter me, reporter and writer. More detailed position TBD.

The most interesting part of the story is that I never went to the shoot last night, but came into the showroom this morning and this afternoon got to go to my first Oscar Lounge – complete with celebrity interviews!

Even with a dark purply black, broken baby toe, it was amazing. And I get to do it all again tomorrow.

So I’m icing my toe and Tweeting, google-ing and trying to prep a little.

And worrying about what to wear.
