  19. You're so awesome LA. Just awesome.

    I know shipping would be a killer to Sydney, Australia but I'll give i ago anyways.

    I wasn't going to mention your lip until you said that you got it pierced. Did it hurt???

  20. LA, I was talking to your video the whole time I watched it. My husband thinks I've gone bonkers. At the end when you said you had your lip pierced, I said I noticed. I must say as an older person I'm not real fond of piercings, but I'm more fond of that than my sons huge wings he just got tatooed across his sholders. It doesn't look all that bad on you I must say, I suppose if I wasn't so heavy I would have a pierced belly button. LOL Congrats on 2 years Chick!!!

    Rainy in Texas

    This is the first time I ever stopped by your blog, but I just love your video. You are yourself and nothing fake. I love the giveaway items because they are just cool girl stuff and I could use some of your vibe in my uptight NYC world. Why aren't there girls like you here?

  27. the whole time i am watching, i am thinking, i didn't know she had her lip pierced..how have i missed that for like a year...do you find yourself playing with it alot? How is the kissing?
