"Soft-Core Friday" - Random Girl Swag

Happy Good "Soft-Core Friday" to you all! Hope you are all ready for the Easter Bunny to arrive and bring you lots of eggs filled with deliciousness and sugar!

I'm happy to announce that Random Girl is launching out into yet another new venture...a clothing line! Now you all can  wear Randy around on your know you have been waiting for that!

I'll be giving you more details on the launch of the line shortly but can tell you that it will be more of a cute, sexy dorm wear type line. Think cute tanks and booty shorts, yoga pants, and hoodies and such. Comfy, sexy, sassy stuff. Very much me!

Here's a sneak peek of a few of the ideas we are looking to include in the collection. Let me know what you think. And what you want to order! I can do small custom orders now until the full launch and then we will have expanded colors and sizes to choose from.

"Soft-Core Friday" - Back to what you know

Happy "Soft-Core Friday" all! Yep, it's back! You may all cheer loudly and make spectacles of yourselves now.

Go ahead, I'll wait.

Feel better? Good!

I told you in my last post that I've given up the whole "girlfriend" gig. Not because anything was wrong, just something missing and I didn't want to delay the inevitable any longer so it's done.

Now what?

What does a girl that has been on lock down for the last 9 months do with herself when she finds herself single again? Well, I'm not sure what a normal girl does, but this girl gets back to getting on with the shenanigans. Was there ever really a question?

In all honesty, it was kind of a daunting task to consider. Putting myself out there again after being in the comfort of a steady relationship. Remembering all the not so fun parts of dating, online dating profiles, awkward first dates, and all those things that come with being a single girl. Lord help me!

But, sometimes you just have dive into the deep end and get yourself distracted with something shiny and new. So I did. Well, technically he wasn't new. We had talked off and on over the last year and a half or so when one or the other of us was between relationships but had never really had a chance to try anything out because the timing just never worked for both of us at the same time. Until now.

We did our usual touch base via text a couple weeks ago and low and behold, we are both finally single. Happy day! Since then, we decided it was long overdue that we spend some quality time together. We even had a date. And have another on planned. Granted, we did things a little backwards but who am I to get caught up in the details?

I don't know that this is the beginning of another round of shenanigans for Randy, but it kind of felt like coming home to a familiar friend after having been all GF'd up for so long. I guess it's true, you always go back to what you know.

Break Ups & Babies

So it's been a while since I sat down and had a good chat with you kids. I hope you are all doing well and springing into this new season with optimistic thoughts!

Let's catch up, shall we?

First things first. I'm no longer a "girlfriend". Yep, I know...shocking right? It's OK really. It was one of those things that just needed to be done. He was one of those guys that looked great on paper and represented even better in real life. He's everything that has been on my "list" and yet...something was missing. For everything that was right, there was that one, intangible thing that was just not there.

I realized that when I thought of next steps, which for us would have been getting engaged and moving in together, I was not excited. Not in the way that someone that was going to start a new life with someone should be. That made me really sad to be honest.

I wanted it to work. I wanted it to be him. It would be so easy and life would be good. But I would feel like I was settling and I want more for him. I want the girl he asks to spend the rest of his life with to be the most excited, happy girl in the world to say yes. And that wasn't going to be me.

He says that he is certain that we would be so good together. He said he is going to leave the door open to me, indefinitely. And that when I get my head out of my ass and realize that we are meant to have a good life together, he wants me to make that phone call because he's still all the way in. I won't be making the phone call. It just wouldn't be fair to either of us.

Yeah, so there's that.

I've been on a few dates since the break up. I'm not really looking to get into anything serious right now but it's nice to have a few shiny new distractions. Although, I feel I'm teetering precariously close to the edge of falling back into full-blown shenanigans mode again. Random Girl might be getting back to her roots out kids!

But in happier news, I get to be a mommy again! I'm super excited. This time, it doesn't come with 9 months of drudgery or stretch marks. This one was easy! And she's super cute.

Here's my new fur baby!

I'll try not to be one of "those" puppy moms and plaster pictures of her all over the place but I make no promises. Look at that face!

Want to be a princess? Now you can!

Hello kids! I've missed you all! I've been working on a few things and unfortunately I am more of a one-track mind person when it comes to creative ventures so the blog has been getting the shaft on love and attention from me lately.

So this is something I'm excited about. Really excited about. And I want to share it with you. I've teamed up with a master tailor and a genius fashion designer and we are launching this amazing new apron line, Elegant Princess Aprons. Now I know what you are thinking, "Aprons? Really? What's cool about that?"

Well, I'll tell you. They are beautiful, hand crafted, and based on the 6 best princesses in all the land. They come in adult and kid's sizes and will make your time in the kitchen a magical time in a land far, far away...or at least you can pretend!

Do me a favor and check out our page on KickStarter. That is where we are doing the initial launch and you can order your custom princess aprons and matching hair pieces for you and your little princesses through there at a great promotional price as part of our launch. My daughter can't wait until hers arrives and neither can I! If you need help ordering or have questions, just let me know and I'll help you out!

Also, please like our page on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Your support is so very much appreciated!

I'd love to hear what you think about this new venture, share please!
