HEY, YOU! WAKE UP WHITE GIRL! Just another one of your usual 20-something year old white girls trying to figure her life out in New York City. Except for I'm actually not that usual. Follow me into my world of antics. I'm fun, I promise.
You will not find them here. You know more than you are willing to accept. I know this because I have been there. And I get it. Placing blame in the wrong place(s) in an attempt to dissuade yourself from the truth. But I got nothin’ left for ya…
This “white girl woke up.” Meaning, this here will be my last blog post for a while. I started writing this blog as an outlet, as a means of expressing my feelings and thoughts candidly in search of inner peace. Well, inner peace has found me.
A big thanks to those of you who kept up with my ranting, raving and puppy videos here on wakeuphitegirl.com! I am grateful for your wonderful support throughout some genuinely hard times and genuinely happy times; it has been fun. And an even bigger thanks to my homie StatCounter for letting me know how crazy/bored some of you fuckers truly are…
It’s been real…Whitegirl, out. For one last hurrah, here is a video of penguins. Make sure to watch with the sound on.
Is I Wish I Never Met You by Sam Sparro. In fact, the entire new album is great, but this particular song is definitely worthy of lots of hair-flips, shoulder-rolls and dramatic arm movements. I also like to sing this song in the shower as a way of welcoming my new neighbor…Poor guy…
Of course, the only share-able version I could find of this song is complete with lyrics which adds an exuberantly EMO touch to this here post of mine. Luckily I’m comfy with my emo side, so the lyrics can stay, I guess…
"Like" Of The Week: Posietint By Benefit Cosmetics
Ok, ok, ok…To be fair, I have “liked” this product for far longer than a week, but here’s what: For the last few months, I have been using mainly powder blushes. However, I decided to bust this cheek/lip stain back out of my arsenal when I realized that powder has become just a little too drying for my skin during the colder weather.
So here is what I “LIKE” (or love) about Posietint by Benefit: Not only do I love the look of dewey, hydrated skin, I also love the look of a naturally flushed’n’blushed cheek. Posietint gives you that happy, healthy pink cheek and it also does not contain any shimmer or glitter which allows for a very natural-looking glowy appearance.
After I have cleansed, toned and moisturized, I apply a bit of BB cream to my face, grab a make-up sponge (I like those disposable triangular sponges you can buy inexpensively in large packs at the drugstore), and dab a bit of Posietint liquid directly onto the sponge. I then apply the tint from the sponge onto the apples of my cheeks in small, circular patting motions. VOILA! My skin looks even and my cheeks look happy! And I "LIKE" that! #happycheeks, right? Right!

I hopped on the Game Of Thrones train a little late so I went on a season 1 and 2 bender and I’m in really, really, really deep/obsessed.
Note to all: You know you’ve crossed The Great Geek Bridge when you’re too beside yourself after watching the season 2 finale to handle awaiting a 3.5 month period between now and a new season of Game Of Thrones so you order the third book on Amazon so that you can create a “book club” (members: you and one other person…A two person book club…) to tide you over until the new season begins. *And no, I wasn’t cool in high school either.
"Like" Of The Week: A New Blog Segment Brought To You By Yours Truly
My sister suggested I add a personal “like” of the week post and I thought it was a fun little idea. So, let’s call this my new blog segment for Wakeupwhitegirl.com!
THIS week’s “Like” Of The Week is the ‘Choisya’ scented candle by Diptyque. It smells of Mexican orange blossoms, heaven and yummy enjoyment. I am a big fan of Diptyque as they make some of the most beautiful frangrances. I normally go for the ‘Gardenia’ or the classic ‘Baies,’ but this time, I decided to change it up a little…And so, after spending way too long at Blue Mercury in the candle corner and explosively dropping/spilling my coffee all over the store, I decided on ‘Choisya.’ It makes my apartment smell like a fancy hotel and does a fantastic job at hiding the smell of popcorn that I make, basically, every night…I consider popcorn a very important food group, ok?
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT: My very first “Like” Of The Week!

I ruined a perfectly fantastic evening by tuning in to a late night showing of Liz & Dick on Lifetime “starring” Lindsay Lohan. I’ve only been talking about this made-for-TV movie for months now…And finally, it has graced my television screen. So here is my concise review:
That was the worst piece of shit I have ever seen in my life- And I watch A LOT of shit, like straight up dog caca shit. But this took the cake. Ugh, I AM SO UPSET. I don’t even know what happened. I don’t even know!
Thank the Lawd that I still have a few episodes of Game of Thrones to catch up on and that I have yet to watch this past Sunday’s Walking Dead…Nothing quite clears my mind like some solid medieval-fantasy-style-decapitation and/or zombie guts. After watching that freckeled disaster attempting to portray My Ultimate Goddess (Elizabeth Taylor), I need a serious mind cleansing. Maybe even a boiling hot bath. Maybe even a lobotomy…
I must say, there is nothing on this earth quite like getting in your car on a sunny California day, rolling down your windows, and blasting the SHIT out of a playlist full of guilty pleasures, (this playlist inlcuded the likes of T-swift’s “Red”, Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and “Trip To Your Heart” by Britney Spears…By the way, I have NO idea why no one ever talks about that song from her Femme Fetale album considering it’s THE BEST SONG EVUUUR.)
Anyhow, other than missing my familians and friends who live in The City Of Angels, I find myself missing the simple ability to jump in my car, turning them tunes way the fuck up and flying down Sepulveda Boulevard like I own the road.
But, it is time to say goodbye to my car and my roads, to hop on a plane and journey back to the land of yellow cabs and subways, where I thank the heavens for use of my legs so that I might walk blocks and blocks, or simply across the street to bother Woubit, the cashier at my neighborhood Duane Reade.
Trading The Angels for The Big Apple…See you in New York, dear creatures.
