Bad Girl’s Movie Night

I’ve seen a photo on Pinterest with some movie ideas for a girl’s night in. You may have seen it. ¬†It looks something like this:

Girls Movie Night Gag! pachomp.com

There are a couple of movies on there we might tolerate (like The Hangover), but none of my girlfriends would stand for that sappy shit on the list. Gag!

My girlfriends like sexy!

So I made my own girl’s night movie list. It’s more of a Bad Girl’s Movie Night List. Here it goes:

Never Back Down – Parts One, Two, and Three! Plot? Who gives a fuck when there are tons of young, topless men fighting each other.

Magic Mike – Plot? IDGAF!

Warrior – A little dramatic, but this movie will get your love/hate emotions going while you bite your knuckle every time someones shirt is off.

Crazy Stupid Love – “It’s like you’re photoshopped!” I could totally wash my panties on Ryan Gosling’s abs.

Fast and the Furious – They steal stuff, they race bad guys, they win, the end. Gives you time to get the deets on who’s sleeping with who in Teeny, TX and you still get to watch Paul Walker’s fine ass shift gears.

Lawless – Rough, rowdy, and against the law. Just the way I like it.

The Proposal – A little romantic comedy never hurt when Ryan Reynolds goes buck naked in it.

Limitless – Very sexy movie if you like Bradley Cooper, and I know you do.

Surfer, Dude – It’s a stupid movie and I hate to hear Matthew McConaughey’s voice, but his hot bod is in nothing but swim trunks throughout the entire movie. Mute it like I do if you must.

Boogie Nights – You know when you see your high school crush again and all the feelings rush back? That’s Marky Mark to every girl that remembers the glorious Calvin Klein ads.

Friends with Benefits – It was a toss up between this and the very similar No Strings Attached, but Mila Kunis wins and Justin Timberlake went from sexy to irresistable since Suit and Tie hit the airwaves.

So, until the Shades of Grey movies come out, this is what we’ve got to work with.

Well, what do you think? Are there any you could add that have the right amount of sexy, rough, and silly?

Margaritaville Mixed Drink Machine

If you’re coming to my house to party, you can expect lots of mixed drinks and lots of shots. The men can drink their Bud Light and whiskey, but I like the girls to have a good time, so I cater to my girlfriends. Bunch of sexy slushes, they are. ūüėČ

I found this amazing contraption and it looks perfect for us slushes out there!

It seems to be a time saver, too! I can add the liquor and three mixers in the containers and let my guests pick their own concoction.

It’s prepared to mix rum, vodka, or tequila. Here are the rum drinks:

The tequila drinks:

My favorite, the vodka drinks:

You can even pick normal or strong!!! Knowing my girlfriends, my mixer would stay on strong.

There is also a button that will roll the dice and pick a random drink for you.

Click on any of the pictures above to buy one for me and my girlfriends.

Also, I’m not getting paid for telling you about this product. I just want ¬†you to buy me one.

Wine Stopper Low Down

These cute little wine stoppers below suck balls. They are not air tight and they leak. Do not waste your money.

Bottle Stoppers

These wine stoppers below are amazeballs. They keep your wine air tight and they don’t leak. You can also get the plugs in assorted colors if you’re fancy like that.

This is not an ad. I just like shit that works and I like to tell people about that shit.

I LOVE My Phone Wristlet

This is why I like it:

  1. It fits my DL, check card, cash, and phone. (Much easier for thieves.)
  2. You can see and operate the phone through the clear cover.
  3. Now I don’t have to drag around a gorilla purse that acts like a black hole.
  4. I don’t have to remove my Otter Box case from my phone in order to put my phone in it.

I bought mine at Claire’s for like $20, but they have the same ones at Charlotte Russe for $10. (Fuck you, Claire.)

New to wine? Try these fruity reds.  They are all very similar, pretty sweet, and super savory.

I LOVE Charlie Layton

I love Charlie Layton’s style. ¬†I see cartoonish/old school/pop art and I love it all. ¬†Most unique, to me, are his drawings on his refrigerator in dry erase markers.

Fuck school, man!!

He does roller derby chicks very well.  So fem!  So tough!

I like how this one has the mixed media effect.  Like a singer that can sing many styles, this artist has a broad expertise.  Not only is this a kick ass piece of art, it also tells a story.  How multi-dimensionally awesome is that?

paCHOMP paCHOMP paCHOMP

The nickname, PaChomp, comes from Pac-Man. ¬†It’s an onomatopoeia of¬†the sound that Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man make when they eat the dots. ¬†PaCHOMP paCHOMP paCHOMP!

When they get a blue ghost, it goes bluebiddy bluebiddy BLOOP!  And your voice has to go up an octave with every word.

So anyways, Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man are the bees knees and so are these afghans.

So cute!

They can even be personalized!

Houston Rocks!

I have vouched for this town most of my life and I’m glad we’re finally getting recognized for all the things I hopelessly preach about. ¬†Below is just a sampling of the recognition we have received over the past few years.
