Charmin Baby Got Back

Charmin continues their Enjoy The Go / #tweetfromtheseat campaign with this fresh new video. They are just being honest.

Evian: Babies Are Back

Evian: baby&me  #evianBabyAndMe

And for memories’ sake: Roller Babies

Last year, I worked on an video ad for Tide Vivid White and Bright, featuring Betty White. This video was nominated for Ad Age Creativity and Tremor Video’s Super Creative Video Ad Challenge. Although we didn’t win – MIller Lite, Mustang and Air Wick took home the awards – I won another award that I can be proud of: being featured in Ad Age!

Do you see me??????? Being in Ad Age is a huge honor for me. I know that I’m not being featured in an article or doing anything super cool, but still. I. AM. IN. AD. AGE. Just little ol’ me, a girl from Boston with a big dream of moving to New York City to be in advertising. During my undergrad years, our college professors always touted Ad Age and told us to subscribe to the online publication. This just shows me that dreams can happen!

Jimmy also happened to complete this dream with me by luck. I had a plus one and invited him. What a lucky accountant. 

I am so, so sorry for ignoring you since August. This blog was made with the pure intention of sharing all the crazy amazing (and not so amazing) things that have happened in our lives. I am a delinquent. It’s not that I didn’t want to keep everyone updated and create a visual and verbal breadcrumb of everything that has happened. It’s just that every time I went to this blog, I wanted to say so much, but I didn’t know where to start. I am a bit rusty. I will also throw out the “I don’t have time” card. On top of my career, I am also taking classes at NYU after work and on weekends. This week’s assignment in my Advanced Social Media class is to write three blog entries. I am hoping that this is the push that I need to get my fire started again. This week could be three and next week, I could have three more.

So blog and friends, please know that more will be coming. I will make up for the radio silence that have happened from my part for the last year.

Till next time,

I don’t understand all this hype about Fifty Shades of Grey. I’ve talked to some of my friends who are also trying to finish this book, and they are in the same dire situation! This book bores me, like how Twilight bored me. The difference is, I made myself finish the entire Twilight series (it may have taken some Red Bull, but hey, it worked), but I can’t make myself go past a few pages of Fifty Shades. Every time I tell myself  “girl, you bought this for $10. Read the damn book.” and I open up to where I left off, I just can’t move past the next page.  I don’t see any initial passion at all between Christian and Anastasia. I just want to giggle at the awkwardness throughout the entire thing. If anyone at all loved it, please enlighten me.

Now, an amazing book I’ve read recently is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I finished this in one week and forced myself to slow down for fear that I wouldn’t read/find another goodie in a while. Midwestern Nick and New Yorker Amy, both writers, meet at a party in NYC. They fall in love, get married, and are super happy until they both lose their jobs due to the recession. They move to the Midwest, where Nick uses Amy’s money to open up a bar, called The Bar. On their 5th anniversary, she disappears; all signs point to him being the murderer. That’s not true. The best part is that you get to read the novel from both point of views, and learn about both of their dark, twisted, effed up loved up relationship. I never knew what to expect next, and that’s what I loved.

I’m not the type of person to think about her future wedding day. Maybe just the color of my future bridesmaid dresses (emerald green, turquoise, or royal blue), season, or kind of food we would serve, but that’s the extent of it. I have/had a Save The Date board on “pinterest,” but then I got lazy and stopped pinning after about one week.

I would rather think about the type of family I would raise > a wedding. If I had it my way, I would just have a destination elopement to get it over with. I am not engaged, but I’ve thrown around this idea…Jimmy and my family are not sold on it, and said that Rachel, the youngest daughter (age 15), is only allowed to do this. We all know that Rachel is going to be the one with the most extravagant wedding. I wouldn’t be surprised if she ordered fireworks as a reception finale. -_-

Back to the family I would raise. Sometimes, I think of family scenarios that would happen. Hey, I have to think about something when I go running. Sometimes, when I’m upset, I think about the situation and over-analyze it in my head, but for the past few months, I’ve had more good days than I deserve. Today, I went through Jimmy’s work bag to look for our shared iPod charger. What did I find? Mountains of red pencils. I called him to ask about it, and he said “what do you expect? I’m an auditor.” I, then, envisioned a future scene: our son would ask Jimmy for help with his homework. Jimmy would take out his red pencil, circle everything and say some auditor insult like “He’s all liabilities, no assets” or “If brains were taxed, he’d get a rebate” or “If a meaningful analytical review were bird droppings, he’s have a clean cage.”

haha. Okay, I googled all of those insults and I actually L.O.L. Thank goodness my business degree was good for something = understanding auditor jokes.
