What a wonderful, wonderful invention and a way to get through Wednesday afternoon. This is my beverage of choice day or night. Coca-Cola’s formula of 100 percent NutraSweet makes this zero calorie soft drink my favorite of anything I could choose to drink, alcoholic or non-alcoholic. I can definitely tell when I am served diet versus regular, especially because Diet Coke does not use a modified form of Coke recipe, but instead an entirely different formula. The same sentiment, even intensified, applies to Diet Coke versus Diet Pepsi. They are NOT the same thing. Not even close. This eCard perfectly describes my feelings on this matter.

If you do not know by now, Monday mornings are just NOT my thing. In college I planned my schedule so I did not have class until 11am, but in Corporate America that just does not work. So instead, I turn to Pandora on Monday mornings to make the start of the week a little bit better. By default I usually leave my account on Maroon 5 so all I have to do is hit the button on my dash bar and within seconds I am greeted by the amazing voice of Adam Levine. My favorite thing about Pandora is that I do not know what song will come next – whether it’s another Maroon 5 song or the wonderful voices of John Mayer, Nickleback, Five for Fighting, The Script, One Republic, Adele, Gavin DeGraw or Coldplay.
My jewelry is one of my favorite things! I consider there to be four key items in this catagory: bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings and I organize my treasures as such. On a “no jewelry” day I will wear a pair of white pearl studs, my gold Georgetown class ring, and a gold bow ring from Kate Spade. Then depending on my mood, my outfit, or the occasion I will accessorize accordingly. Usually large bangles do not get paired with over sized cocktail rings and statement necklaces rarely overlap with big earrings . Other than that, I have no real rules to how I apply my jewelry.
In high school my jewelry collection began as it was one of the only ways I could dress up my Catholic School uniform and show my individual style. A white polo actually proved to be a great solid background for a statement necklace, drop earrings or fun bracelets. Granted, freshman year my daily jewelry was pretty much limited to pearl studs and the occasional bangle, but to me it was stepping out and I got more adventurous as I progressed through my teen years.
