Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies

Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies are a punk-rock group featuring members of Lagwagon, No Use For A Name and NOFX who do punk covers of golden oldies, country songs and musicals. Blake introduced me to them and I think I'll give him an extra kiss today as thanks.

My favoritest (my blog, my words) CD of theirs is Have a Ball. Their versions of "Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard" and "Seasons in the Sun" are fantastic. Go listen now.

You wanna kiss me as thanks, don't you?

Sam & Libby Kalis Floral Ballet Flats

This is maybe the most specific shoe recommendation ever, but for a reason. Sam & Libby shoes are so cute and I own several pairs of the Kalis shoe which is a cute ballet flat in ten million different fabrics/colors. It's awesome.

But the black floral is my favorite. I wear tons of black and these shoes spice it up. I really just wear these with jeans; I'm not a flats-with-skirts type of girl. You would not believe the compliments from random strangers you'll get wearing these shoes. Trust me.

I've also found you the deal of a lifetime. Right now at they are FIVE DOLLARS! Go right now.

Banana Boat After-Sun Lotion

Skin: Holy crap, I forgot sunscreen! AHHHHH!!
After Sun Lotion: Relax.
Skin: No seriously, I am burnt! HELP!
Lotion: Shh, shhh. I'm here, skin.
Skin: I'm so lucky to have you.
Lotion: Yes, yes you are.

No seriously, it's that good. When we landed in Hawaii this is the second thing I bought (I wish I could say first thing, but I'm keeping it real) My family refers to this as just "sun lotion" as in "I am a super white human being and have been in the sun too long. Where is my sun lotion?"

Somehow this keeps you from peeling from a sunburn and helps your tan (and by "tan", I mean "slightly less off-white". At least in our family) Fabulous. In just every drugstore ever. Buy it now.

Skin: Oh, rub that right in, baby.
Lotion: Pervert.
