No nonsense Shopping

01/17/2013 @ 7:49 PM | General with 1 Comment

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We all know I dislike shopping.  I actually give money to friends who love to shop and buy me my wardrobe.  I must say though that my ex coworker does an excellent job of it too.  She has very nice taste as she gets me.  I'm more of a simple person. No muss or fuss.  Never really been that big into what other people thought I should wear and when. 

That being said I had the opportunity to choose my own set of clothes and accessories.  No nonsense tights and leggings are simple yet functional.  These are the clothes that I would choose to wear on an every day basis if I could get away with it.  Of couse they would have blue in them and white seems the most logical to go with all the blue.  Now I have not worn tights or leggings in quite some time but they used to fall down over the course of the day most likely due to the fact that I was stick thin.  I don't think I'll have that problem now.

I actually need to update my wardrobe again for the new job I am needing to find and attain.  That would entail a lot of interviews or less if I get lucky.  This would definitely be ideal for the hot summers down here while I am not at work because this most likely would not be appropriate depending on where the position is.

Right now my wardrobe consists of quite a few t-shirts from camp and a lot of basic plain shirts with basic plain pants or capris usually in the same boring colors.  I definitely need to be on the look out for affordable and colorful separates to mix and match which No nonsense has.  Since I am not at the hospital anymore I most likely will have to fend for myself out there in the shopping world and am glad that No nonsense tights and leggings can be found at food & drug stores as well as retail stores.

Five Question Friday #31

01/11/2013 @ 10:39 AM | General with 3 Comments

1. Flu mist? Flu shot? Or take your chances?
Neither and what ticks me off the most about how they push this crap is that they tell you that if you take this you will NOT get the flu. Utter bullsh*t. That’s not what the fricken shot/mist does. It lightens the symptoms when you do get the flu – that’s it! IT DOES NOT PREVENT YOU FROM GETTING THE FLU.

2. Do your kids have iPads? What are some good educational apps? Price?
N/A – no kids. However, when we were growing up computers were just coming out and we bought one and played games on it. Nothing educational was available back then.

3. What are your favorite boy/girl baby names?
I don’t have any favorite names but I can tell you from seeing some of the kids come through our department that parents really don’t have a handle on what they think they are naming their children.

4. If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, which apple do you choose to eat? (red/green, gala, red delicious…)
Red delicious or granny smith but they MUST be hard and crunchy. If it is mushy and soft I will NOT eat them.

5. What is your favorite place to escape to for peace & quiet, to think? Why?
Oddly enough Starbucks. I can tune out everything and everybody. If I’m at home I am too tempted to turn on the TV.

The Rules: I’m going to ask FOUR QUESTIONS that everyone can answer and then you have the option to add a fifth question of your own for those who are visiting your blog to answer in the comment section, along with commenting on the four standard questions you answered!

1. What do you think the biggest downside to being rich and famous would be?
All the attention you get. They just want to live a normal life too.

2. What is the most interesting news article you read or heard about last week?
The one that comes to mind is the article about a homeowner killing a hunting dog stating he thought it was a mongrel when it clearly had 3 dog collars on him. The owner ended up finding him dead while using GPS to find him – which happened to be one of the 3 collars the dog had on him.

3. Who kissed you for the first time?
Brian something back in high school.

4. How much do you typically tip at a decent sit down restaurant?
I don’t do a percentage. I gauge how well they do but usually never less than 5 bucks.

And your question is:
Schools back in session for me starting today. Most likely all the kids are back in session by now. Are you glad the break is over?

Resolutions: Hail to the no. Goal: Find a new FT job in the IT field after I obtain my second degree in May.

2. Have you made any travel/vacation plans for 2013?
Every year I go to our kidney camp in Tennessee and even though I am no longer employed at the hospital I will still be traveling with the kids to the camp because it is run through someone else and I got permission 🙂

Usually the 2nd bedroom because I just use that as my office and there isn’t anything on the floor *looks around* per say.

C H E E S E ! I can’t stress that enough as I’m a cheesaholic lol

5. Are you a hugger or more of a hands off person?
Hands off for sure. Working at the hospital has taught me to stay away from all the germies.
