Purple manicure

     Purple is the best color since teal. I love my two new polishes from fellow bloggers. The first is a very light subtle shade. I used this on both my hands and feet, but ended up only keeping it on my feet. When I had it on my hands I added a chevron line in white on each thumb.

      The second purple is a darker shade. Both are equivalent in coats needed because of the dark ones quality (unless mixed a lot). I used Essie lux effects clear sparkles coat over this shade. A white x is added to each index and pinkie finger. I'm not sure why.

      I love both shades and polishes. The overcoats also! Essie is a pain to get off though..

Socks on pops

      Everybody suckers into those colorful fiesta of freeze pop heaven sacks during the start of summertime. An easy fix for the cold hands is a child's sock or rolled adults sock used as a pouch around the freeze pop.

      Of course, if your like Little Mr over here, using socks as hand mittens is always an option - just not suggested.

Make a move

      This weekend was Detroits 2014 Movement. Or DEMF, techfest, whatever you prefer to call it. Line up of DJ's, tons of electronic music, tons of people, and loads of fun. A friend of mine I haven't seen in 5-years and her buddy decided we'd go and bust in. They dressed slutty so we figured they could just work their stuff and get us in. I did better with my negotiating skills. We failed getting in, as its now $50 (used to be free). Looked lame from the gates anyways.

      They were scared walking around Detroit. So if anybody whistled I'd just state they were mine and I was their pump. This failed when I was wanted as well. 

      We hit up a horrible club after. The entire time I was texting my new guy friend who eventually came and saved me. His best friend has a beautiful girlfriend who I took selfies and talked about nonsense with in the bathroom away from the boys for an hour or so.


Everybody besides myself and my homeboy were drunk (I only smoke). The most hilarious site was watching homeboys best friend cry (and I mean balling) at the end of his bed questioning where he went wrong - while his girlfriend and her best friend make out taking up the rest of his bed. I wouldn't change the past few days for the world. Ahaha.

Taylor Swift sued for the lucky number 13

      “whenever a 13 comes up in my life, it’s a good thing. I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th, my first album went gold in 13 weeks, my first number one song had a 13 second intro.” - Taylor Swift

      American clothing brand Lucky 13 is suing Taylor Swift for copyright infringement of their lucky 13.
      Explanations are unknown as to why exactly the company is taking such actions. My assumption is some huge money benefit. 

      Can anybody holla WTF?!

The fast Lanes

      My best friend Laney of Night Owl Venting has been my pen pal for the past few months. I've been showered with goodie bags like it's Christmas. One of the recent ones being a handmade loop de loom headband I absolutely adore!

      She must have taken awhile to make me this lovely accessory and I love it to pieces!! 

      She also sent a bohemian bracelet in blue and white with her favorite creatures (owls) made as a best friend bracelet. She's such a sweet hearted girl, and an amazing friend.

Gold lion

      Since Dan and I split I've been living back with my step-brother. My room got a nice cleaning and I forgot about a few things I've had over here. Including the gold lion drawing on my wall. 

      The Yeah Yeah Yeahs inspired this drawing with their hit Gold Lion. I of course listened to it the entire time I drew. The meaning behind the song is very hard to grasp if not looked into. After looking into it I grabbed my metallic gold sharpie and wanted one of my own. 

      Do you have any crazy wall art?

I'm blue

      I'm in love with this "running sucks" sweat shirt. Because running does suck in my opinion. Looks good with these knee slit jeans. Match it with some good non-running shoes (chucks), throw in some pac sun fun sunglasses, skull earrings from Etsy, and tie it off with a nice hair scarf. Making the perfect outfit for any non-runner!!

The fairy tale tag

      We all have a little bit of fairy tale in us. This is where we can express it! I came across this tag on Odds and Sodz, be sure to check out her answers! Also feel free to fill out your own. 

Snow White - Do you consider yourself beautiful?
I am white as snow, I'll give you that haha. I know my flaws but also see beauty in myself. Red hair, blue eyes, and long eyelashes are a few of the things that make me beautiful.

Sleeping Beauty - How many hours do you sleep at night?
I have random phases of insomnia, so at times I could sure use more beauty sleep!

Cinderella - Do you have a curfew?
Hah, no. I set my own curfew based on what I have to do the following day and such. 

Rapunzel - Do you love being outside?
When the bugs aren't attacking, yes. The sun tends to kill my skin so it does suck when I forget the sunscreen.

Red Riding Hood - Do you trust strangers easily?
Way too easily!

The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids - Are you easily fooled?
I'm pretty gullible I suppose. It depends on the person telling me the story.

Beauty and the Beast - What makes someone beautiful in your eyes?
Honesty and kindheartedness.  

The Little Mermaid - What would you sacrifice for love?
Nothing, you should love me for who I am.

The Frog Prince - What do you find disgusting?
The sound of chewing. 

Jack and the Beanstalk - Do you have any plants?
I'm not really into gardening, because I'm not fond of all the bugs..however I'd love to have some poppies and tulips! 

Puss in Boots - Do you have pets? If not, do you want them?
I have a pup (Oliver) and a kitty (Gypsy).

Bluebeard - What is your weak point?
When you use the past against me, or call me fat. Haha. 

Pinocchio - What is your biggest wish?
It's rather vain...but to be fit for life.

Peter Pan - What is your mental age?
I can be a 7-year-old and I can be a 30-year-old. It depends on my sobriety level and your attitude. 

The Star Money - What is your most valuable possession?
I suppose my vintage Norman Rockwell collections. 

Gold Mary & Pitch Mary - Are you a hard worker or a lazy one?
I can be an extremely hard worker. Working 12-hour shifts at a factory job was nothing. Working 8-hour shifts folding panties at Victoria's Secret on the other hand was a pain in the ass. 

The Snow Queen - Who is your best friend?

The Princess and the Pea - Are you sensitive?
Very! Both physically (don't tickle me) but especially emotionally.

Godfather Death - What qualities make a good parent?
Open-mindedness. Remember you were once that age!

The Twelve Dancing Princesses / The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes - Do you like parties?
I love parties. Always enjoy myself when I go to them. 

The Emperor's New Clothes - Do you care a lot about your clothing?
I do. Not that I have super expensive clothing or anything, I just find comfort in certain pieces and grow attachment to them.

The Brave Little Tailor - Do you consider yourself brave? 
Yes, but I used to be a coward. 

Yeah, I smoke

      If there's anything I love more than hula hooping, it's smoking. Does that make me a bad person? Yes, because it's illegal. Other than that, no. You probably drink just as much. The state of Colorado was given the freedom to smoke legally this year. Hopefully this is the start of a new beginning. The beginning of legalizing marijuana in the United States. Here's some benefits of marijuana usage.

      Helps those suffering from Alzheimer's -Studies show that THC slows the formation of amyloid plaque, which is what kills the brain cells of Alzheimer's patients. By blocking the enzyme in the brain that creates the plaque.

      Helps those suffering from diabetes - Marijuana users are less likely to become obese and have a lower risk for diabetes. Marijuana users have shown fasting insulin levels that were 16% lower than those who have never used, along with 17% reduction in another measure of insulin resistance as well.

      Improves lungs in cigarette smokers - Researchers looking for risk factors of heart disease tested the lung function of 5,115 young adults. Tobacco smokers lost lung function over time, but marijuana users showed an increase in lung capacity. It's possible that the increased lung capacity maybe due to taking in deep breaths while inhaling the drug, and not from a therapeutic chemical in the drug.

      It also helps cancer to stop spreading, may decrease anxiety and depression, ease muscle spasms, relive arthritis, and helps control epileptic seizures. Honestly, I see no harm done. Obviously you shouldn't do stupid shit while high, in fact it's those who do that ruin it for the rest of us. Just like those who drink and drive ruining things for other drinkers. I'm not saying you should get off the computer and go smoke a bowl, I'm just saying you shouldn't judge myself or anybody else for doing so.

My stress ball is cooler than yours

      Yesterday while at the bank it was "national PNC day" or some shit, because they had free toys and food. I grabbed a stress ball and a bunch of other goodies. The lady even grabbed me some sunglasses since they were all out before I left, which they kept in the safe. Yeah - she unlocked the safe to get me a pair of shades.

      Later on while driving with my friend Hope, I tell her about my awesome stress ball. "I have some awesome stress balls" she said as she reached into her glove box grabbing a blubbery thing. I look at it and assume it's a brain in the shape of a heart. Then realize it's a ball sack. At a red light I smushed them against the window while a man was starring at us. He rolled down his window and yelled "Where's the rest of 'em?!". Hope rolled down hers replying "I castrated my boyfriend."

It was perfect.
