An Update on Life Chez Carma Sez

Periodically I like to update everyone on what is going on in my relatively non-eventful life.

Well, I do have some news: I passed my certification exam - YAY!!

Over a year of hard work went into it and I am relieved to once again have some free time on my hands where I am not feeling guilty about not studying...

I've lined up some per diem work that I am excited/nervous about and will be starting that soon. It will also be nice to catch up on my reading and update my photo albums. I've never been one to have stacks of photos lying around....It will give me peace of mind to get reorganized.

As you can see my feed to this blog is still redirecting and despite many valiant efforts at fixing it - it is still not working. Part of me feels I should "chuck it all" and give up but the other part of me has a renewed sense of energy to create some new posts.

I joined a new belly dance class and we are having our first Hafla next weekend so I hope to post some pics. Yes, as pathetic a dancer as I am, I could not resist the urge to go back!!  It is my one creative outlet at this time and I am fully enjoying it once again. You may recall belly dancing was something that I started completely on a lark after people always telling me, "I could NEVER see you doing that" whenever I would bring up various things I wanted to try. I never thought I'd stick with it so I have surprised even myself!

VC is 16 already- and driving!!! It is amazing how quickly your "little ones" become independent. It has been taking some getting used to. I already have a plan that I need to adopt a little fuzzy replacement VC once he goes off to college (i.e. a dog) - just need to get over the thought of picking up dog poop...

Well, that's about all from here.

A Review: Custom Tote Bags!

As someone who is constantly lugging tons of things around: sunscreen, books, stethoscope, sphygmomanometer (love that word!) etc. - I am always in need of tote bags.

One thing I'm fussy about is a bag that helps me look polished and put together!

Simply-bags.com has a line of custom tote bags that completely fits the bill - at very affordable prices.

The bag I chose was a travel tote - in turquoise w/navy monogramming- like the one seen here:

As the name suggests, the tote bag is incredibly lightweight - yet sturdy. It is fully lined with a zipper pocket inside and extra storage room in the outside pockets as well. It also has a magnetic snap closure to keep my belongings secure.

I have a feeling come summer this will also be my favorite beach bags. It is perfect-sized to roll up a few towels, swimsuit and flip flops.

Something else that impressed me is that the bag was not a flat solid color but rather had the look of being hand dyed w/variations in hue. Oh, and I also love the monogramming!!  There will be no question who this snazzy bag belongs to!!

Gallery Girls

Yesterday I got together with a friend for our monthly mall meetup. Knowing about my gallery stories from my former job as a gallery assistant, she recommended I watch Gallery Girls.

Since I don't have cable (yep!) - I was happy to find that it is available on Hulu.

It pits the Brooklyn gallery chicks with their red lipstick and black hair against the blonde bombshells from the OC who live on the Upper East Side.

Some of their attitudes are simply awful but I am getting a kick out of the NY version of the gallery world I used to be a part of, with our "stable" of artists.

If you are artsy or enjoy watching pretentious spoiled Daddy's girls, check it out.

I'm still looking for a way to blend my artsy side with my new "medical" side. There has to be a way...

Mature Content to Follow....

I hope you've all had a relaxing summer and are re-energized now that school is back in session!  I usually keep things pretty light and breezy on this blog but today you are in for more of a "mature topic."

We've all seen the commercials for Cialis, Viagra, Levitra, etc etc etc, but have you noticed there are no counterpart commercials featuring women's products of the same nature?

I was recently approached by a representative from Zestra, the makers of Essential Arousal Oils geared towards women. When she explained the bias the company had been encountering getting awareness of the product out into the mainstream media, I felt compelled to assist with the cause.

Apparently, many traditional media outlets refused to run their ads out of fear of "offending" someone, as if the men's commercials would NEVER offend anyone ;-)

Thing is, Zestra is a product that could potentially make a significant impact in the lives and relationships of women, especially those in my own age bracket.

What I like about the product:

- it has been clinically proven to bve safe and effective, without any known drug interactions
- it is hormone and paraben-free
- it has been recommended by the fine Dr. Oz!
- it is discreet and easily portable
- it works within minutes (yeah baby ;-) )

If you or someone you know could benefit from this product, I encourage you to check out the testimonials and special offers from Zestra (click on the link)

Zestra feels all women deserve sexual satisfaction - and who could argue with that?
