So I get a bunch of free magazines in the mail. (Junk mail is my area, apparently.) One such magazine had a pretty dang interesting editorial of everyone's favorite: SHOES! Shoes shoes shoes. And thus, a shitty introduction to some shitty Photobooth pictures of some not-so-shitty photos:
That last one there is my favorite.
And where the hell did this come from? MORE Magazine!! If you've never heard of it, it's okay -- it's a magazine for like, American women 40+ years old. Absurd right? It's in the latest issue. Not too many redeeming things in this one, but this editorial certainly caught my eye. I definitely recommend checking it out for yourself! (And if you happen to be getting hot flashes, heavy periods, or excessive tummy fat, even better! lawlzzzz)
And here's a smile for you (because bloggers don't smile enough nowadays!!), have a good one!
P.S. The reason for the Photobooth pics is 'cause I can't find my camera charger. Oh, and I'm too lazy to scan. Aren't I charming?? (:
100TH POST! Sahweeeet. MAN, too bad I accidentally go on hiatus like every month. I keep forgetting that sometimes, people still read this. (Shout out to a reader that recently posted about me, you're so darn sweet!)
So I've worn this bitch a couple times already, but I just now decided to get off my ass and take outfit photos! It's so dang cute and fits me perfectly, yet looks slimming. By my bb'z lipgloss & black. Genius, of course.
Isn't it rrrridiculously cute? I don't just shamelessly promote them for NOTHING. And congratulations to them for making 500 sales by Sylvia's birthday! w00t here.
I spent the day with my BFF at the mall (god, I'm a legal adult but I'm literally 12 sometimes) in a neighboring town. It. Is. Freaking. GIANT. I don't understand people that can shop in gigantic malls... hurting feet, getting lost... jesus. Didn't really buy anything, because I can't really impulse-spend anymore. But I did look at bathrobes, because apparently, bathrobes are necessary in the communal bathrooms of college. Of course, this means that I immediately needed to take photos that vaguely (or really obviously) suggest I have bowel problems or seizures only located within my eyebrow area.
But to balance out the shitty awkwardness of my charming persona, here are some cutesy pictures that would make my mama proud.
And just so you know, my fatty bruise from two posts ago is healing. Which makes me sad, because I wanted to show it off some more. Damn these quick-recovery teenage bodies. Is it weird that I absolutely LOVE the sharp intakes of breath and cringing expressions of disgust upon sight of my ghastly injury??
I just realized how incoherent this, reading it over. Haha, I hope I haven't driven away any readers.
I can't believe it's been... like two weeks since I've blogged. Shit sure does slow down in the summa. (Daaaamn alliteration!!) Real talk, I've basically just been chillin at home and dorm shopping and hanging out with friends... actually I just got back from camping a few days ago! It was only three days but pretty freaking hardcore. We went down to San Luis Obispo (a few hours from Santa Barbara) to Morro Bay. Gorgeous, but arctic. (Well, compared to our relentless Norcall valley heat.) Trip entailed getting stuck on I-5/being stranded in a parking lot for a total of... I don't know, 6? 7 hours? But despite the shit hitting the fan, times are good when it's with your friends, ya' feel?!
Sorry about the poor quality of the photos, I think my camera's gone a bit funny!
These next photos are a result of my innate clumsiness. I was hopping a short fence to go pee (classy, I know... but we were in the middle of noooowhere) and my dumb ass slipped and scraped my thigh like a mufucka. First photo is like a few hours after, second is a few days later (yesterday, actually). It's a fucking beast and I loove it. Just hurts to wear long pants and to walk.
Also posted some new items to the stooore. My girl Kristy (the one who took those b/w photos that I blogged about earlier) is a bitchin' model, don't you think?! Got some AA, a cute loose tank, even some handmade... but hey, you can just see for yourself, eh?
I'm... totally sucking at blogging. I wore an interesting outfit today (a little form-fitting... aka prolonged looks from people in downtown, fml) but I don't have any photos. Trust me, it's amazing. Once school starts, I'll have my photographer friend take photos for me. :) Meanwhile, I'll stop trying to be such a lazy fuck and hopefully you'll still love me.
While I got your attention (if only barely), check out some other blogs HERE and HERE. Both cool kids with some cool photos. I know you're bored, so effing clickalready. (Why else would you be on this shitty excuse of a blog?) And another link, while you're at it.
Anyhow, I spent my Saturday night basking in wonderful weather. Aka sweltering heat. Let me tell you people, sweating is nooot classy. Nor is checkin' out boys when you're terrible at guesstimating birthdates. I'm 18 now, and I could be a mufuckin sexual predator. I'm sorry, general public. (Oh, and nor is bumping into your ex-BFF. So awkward. *commence ze turtle hand motion*)
By the way, I turned 18 a week ago. Wee! Is it sad that in my last few minutes of childhood, all I wanted to do was just... fight someone? So I could still get charged as a minor? I guess that's what getting a life in the ghetto does to you. (To be honest though, it ain't that ghetto.) (And no worries, I didn't fight anyone. Unfortunately.) And apparently, a couple of my friends chipped in and got me some lipgloss & black ish. Love my bb's. I can't wait to seeeee it. But seriously, check out my DIY darlins. Support handmade, support upcycling (it aint bikes), and support cute girls.
So mufuckas I'm about to go 1) get my grub on, 2) diy some t-shirts, 3) and twitta. I'm on that ish so much.
P.S. If you've noticed a bit of a language change on this blog... this is how I talk IRL. I'm not drunk. I was keepin it classy for you bloggin folksz.
P.P.S. I got my Macbook and iPod Touch the other day and I haven't been able to keep my hands off of either.
Sorry for not posting in ages. I haven't had much to post... and I'm a bit lazy too, I'll admit. I just wanted to share a few photos with you guys.
Editorials never really capture my eye, so when this one got me looking back over and over and over... you know it's fucking good. Like, if you haven't seen it yet, you gotta fucking stop reading this text and scroll the fuck down!!
The new Jean Paul Gaultier 2009 campaign:
The clothes are pretty much impeccable. The booties, the men's mesh thigh-highs, those jeans on the left in the first photo... guuuuuuuuh so much love.
I love this campaign 'cause: 1) Insane photoshopping. Whoever did it is sick. 2) Raquel Zimmerman for posing as both man AND woman in the campaign.
I think she looks damn good both ways! If I saw a boy like that on the street, I'd definitely stop and do a double-take.
I've been taking lots of photos lately, just wanted to pile it all together. Three photoshoots, actually. Actually, fuck words... I'll just show you. GRATUITOUS PHOTO BLOG ENTRY FTW!
A lot have already been posted on my tumblr, flickr, etc. but these are my favorites.
(okay this last one wasn't really a part of the 'legit' photoshoot photos but we were just walking around and I picked up a pretty flower)
All photos were taken by me except the second half, the b/w ones. Those were taken by my friend Kristy. She's definitely an amazing photographer. One of the most innovative and... sick-as-hell people I know. She can literally make do with anything.
Anyhow, I hope all of the photos make up for the lack of consistent blogging :) Do tell me what you think!
And this is my sick-of-wearing-a-black-and-optional-lace-bra-under-all-sheer-and-or-loose-tanks-and-I-still-think-it-works thang.
Went reading for a bit at Starbucks today and trolling around Target. For once, I didn't suffer in the crazy heat... it was actually kind of pleasant! Granted, could've been the venti caramel frappucino with peppermint I downed. (I get weird looks from baristas when ordering, but trust me, it's freaking delicious.)
I finally figured out this tumblr shit... visit me!
I want to share one of my FAVORITE online stores ever! I've been following Lipgloss & Black for a while now. Not only are they run by the most SWEETEST darlings/sister duo, Sylvia and Sam, but they're also all DIY and run the huge online business all by themselves! It's crazy successful too. They transferred over to etsy sometime ago. I think it's safe to say their stuff has only gotten even cuter over time.
One of my favorite things that they make are the moto items they have... like their ridiculous motohoodies. Sylvia is genius.
They also make tons more jewelry and reconstructed tees... all super affordable too. The only piece of advice I can give you is if you want something in their store, you better snap it up! Their items usually go pretty quickly.
Go see LIPGLOSS & BLACK here (they're everywhere!): etsy (main store)
Got sick again AGAIN... third time in less than two months, I believe. Basically, my immune system wants me to die, ugh. Along with allergies and this relentless pulsing headache and back pain, I've just been forced to live like a hermit in my house and doing quiet things that don't bring back the headache.
Only possible good side is that my boyfriend seems to relieve most, if not all, of the pain of being sick. I spent the day with him yesterday and I felt perfectly fine, until I had to leave. Isn't that funny? Haha...
Anyhow, just wanted to do a quick post and remind you guys to take a look at the SHOP BLOG... the items listed can only stay up for a little bit more, so please shoot me an email if you'd like to buy! More sale prices have been posted (aka lowered prices!), so check it out now. :)
So I was tagged an... embarrassingly long time ago by Rissa. It really is embarrassing how long ago it was. Oh well... better late than never?
What is your current obsession? Evanescence. I've never really gotten over the sheer beauty of Amy Lee's voice.
What is your weirdest obsession? Hmm... has to be... ketchup. I eat ketchup with a lot of things (but never straight, hm!)
What are you wearing today? A gross old t-shirt and some random Free People shorts I found for three dollars. I'm really a hobo.
Why is today special? Because I just found out I still have a job. YUS!
What would you like to learn to do? I would like to learn how to sing properly and not just go by ear... to play guitar and drums, also properly... erm, to create a successful shop blog and get rid of some of my crap. Alleviate some of my magpie tendencies. A bunch of stuff, there's never enough time, really.
If you could meet a fictional character (books, movies…) who would that be? My inner fangirl screams Edward Cullen.
What’s the last thing you bought? A load of stuff, for cheap too! My favorite has to be these distressed Kira Plastinina shorts with the perfect pleating for my body, though they make my long legs look terribly stubby. But what else can I do!
What are you listening to right now? Old Evanescence, I really do love Amy Lee.
What is your favorite weather? If I had to answer this question related to fashion/clothing, I'd probably say cold cold cold, so I get to layer and add lots of texture into an outfit. Warm weather (especially in California) limits a lot of what you can wear.... like, it basically gets to a point where it's just an unnecessary amount of suffering is involved when you're wearing anything BUT a tank top/t-shirt and shorts combo. Non-fashion-related, I would say 85%+ overcast days with a light breeze and it's just perfect to wear shorts or a light sweater or whatever. And yes, I am disgustingly specific. :)
What do you think about the person who tagged you? Her photography is fucking tight.
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be? Someplace in Europe is always safe to say. First place off the top of my head would be Greece. Who DOESN'T love Greece? Greece, oh Greece... I'll go fantasize and such now.
Favorite vacation spot? Hm, I don't get to vacation much... but I always do enjoy impromptu road trips!
What would you like to have in your hands right now? Money. My bank account is dying.
What would you like to get rid of? About half of my closet, and my sick need to keep everything that passes into my hands.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Honestly, I'd probably just go hang out with my boyfriend. Or how about this, kidnap him and we go to... Paris!
Which language do you want to learn? Spanish, just for practicality's sake (due to living in California, I mean). Better Chinese (I only know basics). American Sign Language, I only know the alphabet and a few words (just try me! I'll introduce myself and everything :D). And French, I've always wanted to learn French.
What did you dream of last night? Oh, I never remember anything from my dreams anymore. I technically didn't even sleep last NIGHT...
One thing that you would snitch out of someone’s closet, with no regrets? Aghhh any of Lady Gaga's crazy geometric dresses. Or a pair of her shades... oh shit, no it'd be that disco stick. Erm, sterilized, please...
What’s your favorite piece of clothing in your closet? This totally legit drapey tulip skirt thing that was probably ripped off of some designer but I found in some little trendy boutique, forgotten in the clearance rack. Or this super comfy tank that is just light enough to keep cool, but not so sheer that it reveals everything. Everyone needs one of these. I got a size up (medium) and it's perfectly slouchy.
What is your dream job? Musician.
Personal aspirations at the moment? Getting the shop blog off the ground (geez, I just keep plugging)... cleaning my room (which for me is a much more gargantuan task than it seems to most people)...
If you had a time machine, which time would you like to revisit? Ancient Rome or Greece.
Your favourite pet? :( I was never able to have pets when I was younger because of the deadly allergies I would have to fur. I've gotten over most of it, it's mainly just the usual pollen and such now... but I've always wanted like, a freaking golden retriever haha. I COULD get a pet now but it would be a bit useless and I doubt college dorms would allow me to bring a pet, and no one in my family would want to take care of it.
If you had to eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would it be? Most likely pasta. I don't know what it is... but I love it. I could probably eat it everyday.
1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people. The people I’ve tagged are: Starr, Charmaine, Stylish, Anya, and whoever else wants to do this!
Been working on it all day (just about), but I just listed up tons of new items onto the SHOP BLOG, in addition to updating information and such. Check it out, please? :) Here are a few of my faavorites... (I wish they fit me, sigh)
Click the photo to see item!
ruffled crop top
I'm sad about posting these items up because I love them so much, but they've been sitting around in my closet for so long that I know someone else out there can appreciate them more than I can! I'll be listing more items soon enough (pinky swear) so check back soon!
Also, I just saw the most amazing photographs of the upcoming Burton version of Alice in Wonderland... even if the movie turns out to be crap (but I really doubt you can go wrong with Johnny and Helena), at least we can sit back and remember how... fucking tight these photos were. Are. Anyhow, they're awesome.

Stunning. Makeup experiments anyone? :)
It's just about 3 in the morning and I'm gonna go... conk out on my bed.
