Since we all know i don't sleep at night, i thought i would share my latest late night obsession:

That's right...i've discovered it, and i'm obsessed with it.

whoever created/directed/wrote this is a genius...and we should be best friends.

I know I've featured them, and this song, before...but they are walking around a house. With a video camera. No stage, no studio, no auto-tune.
"greatness is what we on the brink of"

Something  I found in The Chrysler today...

An anonymous piece.
Looked like a business card that you would hand someone at the end of a meeting.
It spoke to me. 

 An insane woman clutching a log dressed as a baby.

One of my absolute favorite pieces.
Hands down.

Another of my favorites.
I should have been a jazz singer...or maybe I was one in another life...


 A woman inside of a rather vulgar alien.
It's supposed to look exactly like what you think it looks like.

Catholics vs Jews in a game of chess.

Song of the Day

'xcuse me, let me introduce my lady

Give. In.

Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.

There's Nothing Better Than...

A man in uniform...even though I'm a Navy brat...there is something about the Marine Corp Dress Blues...

Well manicured nails...Be creative...But keep 'em neat!!!

Dark Chocolate. 'nuff said

Pink Wine...FAVE!

Jeffrey Campbells. 

Jax Teller. One of the best looking men on television...

Pretty Much...and I Don't Care

Today's Project

I have been craving a cannoli cupcake like nobody's business!!! But...none of the cupcake shops near me have them...WAH!!! However, I am a baker at heart...and cannoli cupcakes are a little bit of a specialty of mine...but since they're so complicated, I rarely make them! Not to mention, I'm riding solo this weekend so I have no one to eat them with...

Never fear...I have made them my Saturday project...and they're gonna be goooood :)
Ok...mine won't be this pretty...but they'll be yummy ;)

Retro Amazing-ness

My love of all things retro has turned into an up all night fest of retro music listening....I almost didn't fall asleep last night.
I am beyond in love with all of these artists:

I love her...

I belong in this group. No lie.

I'm no good. But you, Amy? You were a queen.

Everyone's inspiration.

Lovely Days

Someone left a trail of yellow flowers on the beach today...

Poor thing got stuck in the water :(

I don't know where the rest of this thing is..but it was huge!

I think this is a blowfish...but it was slimy and gross when i found it...

Daphne is having a good time being adorable :)


For some reason, I am obsessed with acoustic music today...maybe it's the beautiful fall weather we've been having...or the fact that I broke out my cowboy boots yesterday...but with these tunes I won't complain...


A lot of beards and dudes in wife beaters...

My favorite group to see live...these guys kill it EVERY time!!

This is my song of the moment.

First of all, Jeffrey's lookbook for fall is to.die.for. I mean...from the first page, to the last, it's impeccable. Stunning, even...the title says it all:
Let's wander through the collection and take a peek at a few of my faves.

Sunday, September 9, 2012


I woke up this morning (afternoon really...) to an ice cold bedroom. I went into the kitchen to turn off the ac only to see that the windows were open and there was a cool breeze floating through my apartment!! Normally, I am not a fan of losing summer, BUT this year, I'm ready for scarves, football, and tights!!!

Some of what I'm looking forward to:
