Now THIS is great advertising!

I fell in love with this Tampon commercial .

and googled it and found one that’s even better from the same brand.

I like their approach. Most women are dedicated to the brand they use and will not swap out when it comes to such a personal item.  So there’s only two ways to get new customers.  1. Attract the attention of young teens who only use “cool” things and are new to the market. 2. Do something bold enough to grab the attention of a dedicated user of the competition. I think they achieve both with these ads.  I will give them a trial run next month.

What do you think??

XOXO,

Kimmy

love love love it.

Sometimes life is CRAZY with the rollercoasters (remember my first post back?).

Sandra Bullock seems to be having her own little ride of the highest highs and lowest lows. But I love the way she’s handling it.  I’m glad she’s leaving him & i LOVE that she adopted a black baby boy from New Orleans…

Things did not go as planned for her in her personal AND professional life.  But you never know what God has in store for you. You have to roll with the punches and understand that it’s all working out in perfect order and have faith!

She just raised her stock in my book!

XOXO,

Kimmy

go SUNS!

Today i’m simply posting a fantastic article from True Hoops on my cousin’s love for Portland after last night’s big WIN against his old team…

PORTLAND – Playoff series are supposed to bring out the worst in city vs. city rivalries, but in the case of Blazers vs. Suns we have a glaring exception to that rule.

Suns center Channing Frye grew up in Arizona, went to college there, and plays there now. Nonetheless, he might be the biggest civic ambassador for the city of Portland this side of Meriwether Lewis, and as the series shifts back to Portland he’s going to get some quality time at his adopted home.

Frye spent only two years in Portland while playing for the Blazers, but in that time went native more than any Blazer in memory. He married a Portland girl, kept his condo in Portland’s south waterfront district after signing with Phoenix, and will be back in town as soon as his season ends. His Suns teammates, in fact, joke that he won’t shut up about the place.

One of the few recent Blazers to live in the city rather in the suburbs near the team’s Tualatin practice facility, Frye was a constant sight around town in his time with the Blazers and frequently blogged about local restaurants.

Frye said he was amazed other players didn’t live in town. “You have to figure Portland’s not really that live of a city all the time,” said Frye, “so why not stay downtown? It’s easy, ten minutes to [Tualatin].”

My own brief inquiry into his favorite eating spots elicited an extensive, eclectic and geographically varied list. His first name, a Thai place called Pok Pok, is a well-known landmark, but his second choice blew me away – a tiny, funky, greasy spoon diner called Stepping Stone Café, on a residential street in Northwest Portland a few blocks from where I used to live. With a sign in the window that says “Beware of Attack Waitress,” it’s not the type of place one expects to bump into NBA millionaires.

Frye realizes his preference for the Rose City makes him an oddity among players, including his Phoenix teammates. This is Portland, after all, not New York or Miami, and its charms aren’t as readily apparent.

Or, as, Frye put it, “They all think Portland sucks.”

Indeed, a brief survey of his teammates turned up few positive rejoinders. I chatted up avid cyclist Louis Amundson – famed for his former habit of arriving by bike at US Airways Center (he lives too far away to do it now) – about Portland’s reputation as the nation’s top biking city, but once I mentioned the nine months of gray weather he quickly lost interest.

Teammate Jared Dudley wasn’t buying in either. I asked if Frye would be showing him Portland’s sights during the three days they’d spend in Oregon. “He’ll probably want to,” said Dudley. “I won’t go with him.”

For that matter, Frye says we shouldn’t expect to see him out on the town too much over the next few days. He said he’ll see a few friends and visit a favorite big-and-tall shoe store, but otherwise chill out in his hotel room.

“This is really kind of a business trip,” he said. “I’ll be back in June.”

3 easy ways to be a better date…

I was reading one of those“advice from a real guy” Glamour Mag articles about 3 simple ways to be a better date.  So I asked my best guy friend what his top 3 ways to be a better date…and they were pretty much in line.  Originally, this was just going to be a post for the ladies, but as I reflect on some less than awesome dates, I validate that this definitely applies to dudes as well!

Obama's NY date night

1. Be able to discuss a wide range of topics from silly jokes to pop culture to politics. (He suggests the Daily Beast Cheat Sheet to know at least a little bit about current events!)

2. Be in a great mood. People enjoy positive energy and want to be around that vibe more often. Even if you’re semi-happy, reschedule. (You want to put your best foot forward!)

3. Look nice. (Don’t treat a date like it’s any other day, pay attention to detail, and spruce yourself up a bit! Ladies, get your nails done and throw on some mascara and eyeliner.  Fellas, get a shape up, and if you’re not into paying attention to your outfit, plan it after work)

Just pay a little extra attention to the basics and you’ll get so much farther.

Happy Dating!

XOXO,

Kimmy
