Turning 30: Trust Yourself and Believe in the Future

Bad Twin Turns Thirty with Good Twin only Minutes Behind!

Bad Twin's Birthday Drink - A Dirty Hendricks Martini

It's fashionable to drink gin that doesn't taste like pine trees.

Hendricks gin is infused with cucumber and rose. It's is delightful in a simple gin and tonic, I like to add a splash of grapefruit juice, but is sweet enough to translate well in a Pina Colada. Go ahead, say that's weird. I've tried it, served it to guests even, all were astounded.

After one Hendricks martini I think I would be tipsy enough to order these shoes for myself for my birthday, even if they are a half size too small. If they sit forever in my closet at leat I'll hear them screaming because they are loud!

Bad Twin likes her martini glass full to the brim and her hot pants tight. I was born to fill out these overalls. Plus the bib will keep the birthday cake out of my undies.

No link here. I want them that bad.

This jacket is like one of those bleu cheese stuffed olives they put in martinis. FABULOUS yet not necessary.

Atilladesign, based in Finland, creates wearable art. The designs are custom-made with passion. This jacket is called the Urban Samuri. It's an abstract cape that will transform you in to a Girlilla Goddess. When I blow out my candles I'll be wishing for this.

As I approach thirty I am growing to trust my instincts and believe in the future.

Only if my instincts lead me to Tuscany.

And this Italian Agriturismo is in my future.

Agriturismo is a combination of the words "agriculture" and "tourism" in Italian. It is a style of vacationing in farm house resorts. A vacation is suitable for the whole family and can be romantic or even very luxurious.

An Italian agriturismo will usually serve food to guests prepared from raw materials produced on the farm. Some will allow the guest to actually participate in the activities surrounding the farm. You will have a permanent invitation...

Ciao Bella!

P.S. Mom, don't buy me that jacket, it's too expensive. Put cash into my Italian Castle Fund.


  1. Please excuse my mess! I have soooo much trouble with the layout! Why does the preview NOT look like the post?! Oh well, I'll learn!

  2. I will definately contribute to that castle fund!

    Remember this?
