My name is Gloria. I scour the high seas of the internet daily to find the cutest, the beautiful, and the most bodacious.

Hope you all had a relaxing holiday weekend! I had so much fun gallivanting around town with friends and family these past few days, but damn, was it hot and humid! I swear I heard a teeny wicked witch voice in the back of my head screeching “I’m meeeelting” every time I stepped out into the sun for more than a few minutes. It might be time to convince everyone in my apartment building to put an inflateable kiddie pool up on the roof for the rest of the summer.
There was a time – not too long ago, I might add – when my friends and I couldn’t resist ourselves when we came across a temporary tattoo vending machine. We would bypass all the dainty hearts & stars and head straight for the most ludicrous designs we could get our hands on. My personal favorite was a giant cobra wrapped around a knife – what a fine work of art that was! Now that we’re a wee bit older, I think I’d much prefer to rock one of these pretty flaming skulls-free tattoos when my day needs a fun boost!
In the ongoing war between books and e-books, I’m Team Books all the way. I know, I know – Kindles hold hundreds of books, have lots of cute covers, and most importantly, never give you a single paper cut (shudder). And yet, reading’s just not the same for me without going down to the library and perusing through the shelves to pick the perfect one to bring home. I love marking great passages with bits of paper like some strange species of squirrel, and wondering who else read that exact copy snuggled up on the couch, turning page after page long past bedtime.
I know that books will unfortunately go the way of the dinosaurs one day, and when that day comes, I’ll be turning mine into awesome shelving units and iPhone docking stations. Hey, when life hands you lemons!
