Lazy Sunday

If I had a gold fish this is what I would be doing right now. Her name would be Betty.

Shakin' not stirred

In previous posts I have told you Mondays are not my best day. In the attempt to put the dreadfulness of this particular day behind me I have decided to take some advice given to me by Patty Ann (go read/stalk her lovely blog). She suggested Monday Martinis... DUH!!! Why didn't I think of that?

Dirty martinis are on my menu for tonight, extra dirty. The Goose w/ extra olive juice. What kind of martini do you fancy?

Honest to blog

This fanny pack would be a wise investment for me. Ready for some story time? Well ready or not here it comes. A couple years ago while I was in my prime drinking days, not knowing my limit or not caring... I do not recall, I went out with my roommate at the time and her ex boy. We started pre funking at her exes apartment while playing darts. Our intentions were to go for dinner and drinks but somehow dinner became drinks and we didn't eat. After a few or possibly more like five beers we headed to Three Thirty Three. Ok, I have to admit I barely remember how we got to the bar. We get to 333 and with the influence of my drunk roomie, decide the best drink of the night would be dirty martinis. This would have been fine if I had eaten that dinner previously mentioned.

We were all glam and fab while drinking, flirty and talking with friends. And then this girl that supposedly is a stylist for celebs (right, she was dressed like she was an extra in Dynasty.) This ultra annoying chick decided to pull the bobby pins out of my hair and give me the "Donna Martin do", she claimed it was the in do for all celebs. Umm I may be an Idaho girl but I keep up on the hottest trends and this was so 1996! I am getting a little off track, you are probably wondering what the chick trying to make me over has to do with me needing a fanny pack. I am getting to it, promise...
So she does the do, I turn to my roomie and make her fix it, chick tried to put it back to the Donna Martin. And that is when it starts to get even more fuzzy. I know I slammed down a 2nd dirty martini while all this was happening. And then stumbled to the bathroom. Then it all goes black.

Apparently I threw up in the lovely bathroom. Roomie came and found me, held my hair, washed me up and took me outside for some fresh air. Roomies ex shoved us in a cab back to Irvine. I awoke the next morning without my life (IE, purse which consisted of cellphone, wallet, id, even my social security card was in there!!!). I was a shit show and that fanny pack could have been a great wing man on more than one occasion.
Please tell me I am not the only one.

Holding back, no more.

I feel like in my life I have cared so much about trying to please everyone around me it took a while to find my own voice. I used to be really shy and timid, at least until I was comfortable around someone. I didn't like to be put on the spot or called out in front of a group of people. The attention embarrassed me. Now I am like, "hey guess what, hey listen to me, HEY! I am talking!" Ha ha. OK, maybe not that bad but I am more assertive and likely to speak my mind.

In the past couple of years I have gotten to know myself better. I can't say that I have completely found myself but I am on my way. I used to hate being alone, now I quite enjoy my own company. Does this mean I am old? I don't feel old. Here is what I think it means, I am at peace. It's settled, I am not old I am just peaceful. Right?

I am off to the Saturday market for some fresh flowers and live music. Have a relaxing and wonderful day!

Bright, Simple, Happiness

I saw this clutch at Plenty, a chic boutique downtown Hood River and then again in the July issue of Lucky. I can't stop staring at it, I want. I really, really want.

The classic shape and wood accent is as sophisticated as it gets. Handwoven raffia with over sized wood button. Made in Madagascar by a fair trade company.

This Starburst clutch radiates summer! A rainbow of colors is perfect for a playful mood!

Heavy on the thinkin'

Lately my mind has been occupied by thoughts and memories of a person who is anything but deserving. I get caught up with questions like... why did it happen? What was I thinking? Why do I care? I then get angry for letting myself wander back to those days of heartache and confusion. It's safe to say I need therapy. I don't blame anyone but myself for what happened and hopefully one day I will be able to here his name and not feel as though the wind has just been knocked out of me. Today I wish that I could get my memory erased as seen on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Men In Black (laughed out loud for even thinking of that movie).

In quoting Elizabeth Marie, "Mondays with PMS suck." Agreed, and so do Tuesdays! Here's to hoping it's a PMSless Wednesday.

Is my future in the palm of my hand?

How do you feel about Palmistry? I have been seriously considering getting a palm reading. Have you done so and do you recommend it? Maybe I should just go to the library and check out a book on DIY Palm Readings.
I need your input my lovelies!
I hope you have the funnest Sunday FUNday you've ever had, ever! I think I am going to hit a couple yard sales, hopefully I will have some incredibly BUM CHIC finds to share with you!

Amélie is nobody's little weasel

Amélie: [to her father, who is not paying attention] I had two heart attacks, an abortion, did crack... while I was pregnant. Other than that, I'm fine.

This is the movie I will be losing myself in tonight, can't wait to leave reality for a few hours! What are your plans for this evening?

Deathly delicious

It is that time of year, when nothing is better than the refreshingly sweet, watery taste of watermelon . I don't care for any other type of melon, which is a good thing, being I am allergic to all melon including the desirable watermelon. Bad things happen when I eat melon and lets just say I am not in the mood to take a trip to the emergency room. In an attempt to satisfy my urge (although I am beginning to think I am just torturing myself) I thought I would share a few of the taunting reminders that have been teasing me and making my craving linger.

The daring and d-lish Katy Perry.

These fruity Vans are featured in the July issue of Nylon.

This picture seemed appropriate, she looks like the watermelon is torturing her.

The makeup roll bag was stumbled upon on Etsy, it's sold out but I had to show you all!

What is your current craving that can't be satisfied? Please do tell!

Bat for Lashes

It's as if I escape to a world full of elaborate colors and a land of magical fairytails while listening to Bat for Lashes. I would compare this music to the work of Annie Lenox, Fionna Apple, Bjork and even Stevie Nicks. Besides being haute and edgy, Natasha Khan is mistical and spirtitual in her unigue way. Yep. Another girl crush has begun!

For tour dates and more information go ----> here

And for some reason I can NOT figure out how to upload videos on this blogger blog and I am way to saucy from this lovely bottle of vino I have been sipping on to get it done tonight, so go here to give a listen!

Happy Hump Day all y'all! Kisses <3

Monday night mood

Today was a busy day for me but for a Monday it wasn't too shabby. So why am I feeling so dull, dreary and BLAH?
