I may literally be writing this to no one, but IN CASE any of you remember me and want to keep reading, I have moved!

I put on my big girl panties and made a real website, and I'm really really hoping y'all like it and I also hope it becomes more than just a blog. But we'll see...In the meantime, I've missed you but I'm back!!

And here is where I now live:

In Honor of MFAMB and Reasons AHS makes me miz...

Ok, so if you haven't started watching American Horror Story, you need to. And if you haven't started reading MFAMB, (My Favorite & My Best) then you BETTER. Because she's hilarious and says hilarious things. And I realize very few people read my blog now since I've been MIA for...ever...but srsly. If you start doing these 2 things, you will thank me.

SO. MFAMB does the most amazing recaps of I'm not trying to steal her recaps. The only recap action I will give you is that Tate is ON FIRE with his smack talk tonight....dayum boy. And Violet's scary Precious Moment Doll eyes are so so sad.

poor little Vy...


1. Every Wednesday night when I was this show, I have to either a. drink myself down, or b. stay up zombie faced and watch like 3 more hours of TV so I can forget what just assaulted my face/brain.

2. I used to want a basement....eff that noise. NOT happening anymore. Thanks AHS. one in Texas really has basements so it's not the end of the world...

3. I will NEVER EVER, never ever, NEVER EVER, go into an attic again. I already am afraid of them...and now it's just unbearable.

4. I will automatically assume that people who give me the stink eye at work are actually dead zombies who are trapped at work forever and can't leave and they are just jealous....far-fetched....but true.

5. I AM SO SO SO SCARED OF THE DENTIST NOW. Which really grinds my gears, especially since the dentist was the ONE doctor that I wasn't petrified of....I am a total hippie inside and don't like western meds or doctors very much. Me and my chiropractor and holistic doc and acupuncturist are BFF's though.

6. I am now 1,000,000,000,000,000,000% sure that I am psychic and sensitive to the supernatural. If red nailed cray cray lady is, then I for SURE am.

That's it for now...but good NIGHT, this episode is just all kinds of freaking me out already... My self diagnosed ADDDDDDDD is about to kick in and this blog post is going to eat shit and die if I try to keep writing....

oh and check out MFAMB, she's the tits.


pee.ess...has anyone noticed if something is up with Violet's teeth??? Did she get veneers???


OK, I'm feeling a little less grinchy. I don't know what's wrong with me, but I think that since I've had a few days off, all the stress from the past 2 months has started to melt away, but it's leaving in a way that makes my body ache, and makes me not want to get out of bed! Felt a little better today though, has that happened to y'all?

P.S. I think you should know I'm watching Toddlers & Tiaras while I'm writing this and am so horrified. There's a small boy with a rat tail the size of Montana and it's just freaky.

Question of the day..."Where is your Christmas tree???"

Cool...wanna know where mine is?????


dirty street corner tree...

So I bought the tree today, and the man at the place told me to give it a good hose down so it would be super fresh and watered.....Since I am an overachiever, I held up the tree in the front of the house (while my neighbor watched in fear), turned the hose on full blast, and sprayed that beotch down. And also managed to spray myself down....And since it was so soaked, I couldn't bring it inside....that was 4 hours ago....and now I'm too tired and warm and cozy to bring it out from the cold. So I totes just neglected my poor tree that was supposed to bring joy and Christmas cheer.....oopsies?

Has anyone's tree been misplaced? I better not wake up to a note from the HOA bitching about my unsightly tree....considering I already got a noise complaint ON THANKSGIVING AT 10 AM for playing my CHRISTMAS CAROLS too loud...I mean, people these days!!! SUPER GRINCHFACES.

Ok, American Horror Story is about to start, peace out homies. And don't come over and steal my tree!!

Decor ideas....

Ok, so speaking of "ideas" have y'all ever heard anyone say "idear", "wow, that's such a great eye-dee-urr".....k just asking. Because I have. And yes, I have spent (limited) time in some sketchy "hills have eyes" places...but just wondering if anyone else has witnessed that pronunciation.....ANYWAY...

I am repainting my bedroom the color "dove gray"....well that's what I've called it at looks like this...

It's technically called "French gray" which is even sexier but I like doves. 

SOOO, being as my room will be French/Dove gray, I am looking for some art to hang on a blank wall. All of my furniture is silver/grey/mirror/lucite/white and I have some funky accents. My walls are currently a very light ice blue, but I want to go grey so I can add more funky accents. 

I am obsessed with Foxes. Strangly enough, I don't browse with Firefox (that was supposed to be funny...yeah). SO, I found some cool as funky fox prints on Etsy. And I need opinions. Some are printed on French books, which is even BETTER since I am a total francophile....OPINIONS SIL VOUS PLAIT! (that means please in Francais). 


#3 (it's a map of Paris)
#6 (pretty obsessed)

SO, I will likely end up getting a few, but I want to know what y'all think!? Opinions please!


PIN the tail on the donkey....

No....unfortch I will not be talking about old school party games....I just wanted a sly way to say PIN. And not bank account PINS either, because why in the world would I give someone my PIN? I'm not THAT much in the Christmas spirit!!!

Today, in fact, I'm feeling a little Grinchy. Why? Because I need a massage, I haven't gone to yoga class in MONTHS, and I'm SO behind on Christmas shopping....

But we need to get back to PIN being the word of the day, before you think I'm just plain cray cray. (Oh, wait, some of you might think that already...riiiiight.)



I never ever ever ever ever in a MILLION BAJILLION years thought I would be...but I am.

Reasons I never thought I'd be addicted to Pinterest.

1. I am not the owner of any children. All I have is a spoiled perfect princess puppy and 2 finches. (I'll explain the finches later)

2. I am not getting married soon. So why the hell do I feel compelled to have a "wedding inspiration" board???? I DON'T KNOW.

3. I am not in the market to buy a house, remodel an existing house, or purchase mountainloads of very beautiful, very expensive furniture.

4. I am not planning on picking up and moving to Europe. (Although this is the closest statement that might be true...given that I am actually considering moving to Paris...)

So someone please explain how I love Pinterest so much? Am I secretly an interior designer?? Am I secretly a personal stylist ? (We all know the answer to that is yes, but until I find some clients that can cough up the cash for me to quit my job then I'll keep asking the same questions). anyone else as sickly addicted? It's just so so SO SO fun!!!!!

Last night I had a dream that Daniel Craig and I went on a tropical maybe I'll go create a Mr. & Mrs. Craig board.....ugh I am so sick...

Good afternoon lovers & friends!

My Christmas vacation starts this week and I am bound & determined to get back in the blogosphere!

I hope none of y'all have totally lost faith in my, being as I've been a shistey blogger, but I promise I will be back in action for the next few weeks!

We all know how cray cray the holidays are...I am way behind on my Christmas shopping (as in, I've only online shopped for myself and purchased ONE gift for someone.....eek!)

Since we all tend to get wrapped up in the whirlwind of Holiday parties, champagne, eggnog, cookies and fruitcakes, I just wanted to encourage all of you to head over to and participate in project WANA (we are not assholes) I offered to help, and have unfortunately can only help 1-2 people which gives me the sads. I participate in a few local charities here in Texas and can only limit my donations to a few people. HOWEVER, please head on over there and see if there is anyone you can help! The tiniest thing you do can help someone get through a rough time!

Ok y'all, I have to go clean my house since it has been neglected for weeks and my laundry pile is just plain insane.

love y'all!

We all know I'm psychic, but recently aside from being internally magic, my outside is magic.
Here's the grind. I recently was running out of body wash. I have purchased the Dayna Decker line of body wash and moisturizer, which is INCREDIBLE, but being as it rings in at almost 50 bucks a bottle, I use that sparingly. Dayna Decker is also very very concentrated, and I don't want to be "that girl" at work who smells SO SO SO SO SO SO strongly of perfume. I consider this stuff to be liquid GOLD and use it on weekends, date night, etc. etc. My personal favorite scent is "Bardou" which contains, pink peppercorn, fresh greens, wild rose, pink peony (my FAVORITE), cardamom and redwood. MAGIC.
So I found myself needing body wash, not wanting to use up all my DD magic, but also not wanting to be super cheap and buy regular drugstore stuff. Especially since it's fall and my skin gets super duper dry. GROSS.
I shimmied over to ULTA and decided to peruse the aisles. After some hardcore browsing, I found some interesting sale going on. Buy one, get one 50% off, forC.BOOTH products. I thought, what the Hell, might as well give it a try. So I bought, the Rosemany Mint cleanser, and the DELICIOUS magical Walnut Shell Scrub & Cleanser. Let me tell you, these are both SUPER reasonably priced, and I LOVE THEM. The rosemary mint smells incredible, and it's super refreshing, hydrating and overall delicious. The Walnut Shell Scrub smells like a vanilla cake mated with an almond biscotti, then they decided to make it an orgy and invite creamy buttercream and vanilla bean bliss. IT SMELLS LIKE PURE MAGIC. And the walnut shell is a super amazing exfoliant, I feel so clean and shiny!
I also want to try the "Breathe Easy" body wash which will undoubtedly be incredible when I get my first cold of the season. It has a fresh zingy menthol smell and sinus clearing freshness that I think I would love in cold season.
Anywho, thought I should share! Have a great smelling day!

Oops I did it again....

I lied. I told you all I'd be back in blog glory, but I haven't been. Not because I don't love you, not because of the hipsters, and not because I am still analyzing the ACL lineup. It's because being a grownup sucks sometimes!!!! I hate not having blog time! My creativity is getting sucked up by evil grown up world! There is only one solution...quit my job. become a full time blogger. MAGIC.

I'll keep you posted....till then, I'll be reading your wonderful blogs and weeping for the times when I could write everyday.

Oh, and I'm trying to move to Paris for the entirety of next summer. Thoughts?

My ACL predictions for 2011....because I'm Part Magic.

Good morning and Happy Belated Cinco de Mayo my friends!
Since it’s Friday after Cinco de Mayo and I’m feeling extra spicy…I am going to be super ballsy and make my ACL 2011 lineup predictions. The official lineup comes out May 17th (I’m counting down the hours/minutes/seconds) but here is a list of my predictions: 
For headliners:
Red Hot Chili Peppers: here’s why; they are supposedly releasing an album in august/september and I think they’d be a GREAT addition to the lineup. It’s ACL’s 10th anniversary show this year so this would be amazeballs.
Radiohead: This deliciously wonderful band has been rumored to play ACL for the last year or two, and I think this might be our lucky year y’all. Especially with the release of Lotus Flower. 
Paul Simon/Willie Nelson/Buffalo Springfield for the Sunday night closer: Why? Because they’re cool. Oh and who doesn’t love them? I vote for Willie. He’s perfect for an anniversary show in Texas. 
My Morning Jacket: only because I’ve heard rumors and they’re playing at Coachella, they also headlined at Jazzfest last year. Also, their new single “Circuital” makes my heart smile and shoot rainbows.
I could be wrong with those headliners. Now here is my list that include Lollapalooza 2011 lineup shows that I think will do ACL, and some returning shows from ACL 2010. Don’t worry. I’ll tell you which is which…you’re welcome.
ACL 2010 Returning Acts for 2011:
Muse. Put on one of the best shows I’ve seen last year. They’re playing Lolla and headlined las year. I just don’t know where they’d put them. Possibly where Deadmau5 played last year…hmmm…
Spoon. Because who doesn’t love them some Spoon?
Band of Horses. Most beautiful show last year. Sunset and amazing sound. I haven’t heard much of what they’re up to lately but I’d love to see them back.
Black Keys. Popular hit to see. Playing Lolla also.
Matt & Kim. I don’t think enough people appreciated them last year,so I’d like to see them back.
Portugal.The Man. They’ve been blowing up as of late, played last year and are cool enough to play at Lolla.
Rebelution. Another one that’s been blowing up and pretty damn good too. Also played ACL last year. 
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros: Ok, so he’s a little bizarre, who cares? He’s awesome. Last year he drew a huge crowd. Although lately I’ve been enjoying Alexander’s solo stuff. This is one of my wish listers, so he can come solo or play with the MZeros.
Manchester Orchestra: Who are currently touring with Cage the Elephant. Both are also playing Lolla. Manchester was a goose-bump inducing act last year, even though it was fairly early and we were all sweating out alcohol and party time. But, WOW what a great show. Also, Cage the Elephant; who I really enjoy only drew 15 year old skater kids which was not so alarming, but I’d hope to see them back with a more mature crowd. 
Mountain Goats: Another sleeper that I slept through missed at ACL much to my dismay. I love them. Please come back! They’re also playing Lolla.
Midlake: Because everyone needs to know about Midlake. Played ACL last year too. 
Foals: I missed their Houston show, but apparently it was so awesome that someone got SHANKED. Yeah. And they played last year too (ACL). They remind me of a more rock version of Bloc Party.
Shearwater: Another 11 am show I missed. And I was PISSED. They’re like Sigur Ros’s red headed step child, but in English. Comprende? AWESOME.
Balmorhea: LOVE. And I missed them last year at ACL. Such good ear candy.
Dan Black: I would love to have a mini Dan Black to keep in my purse. His show at ACL last year was SO SO FUN, and who doesn’t love him? (Brad from The Rachel Zoe Project still wins in my heart)
OK: Onto Lolla 2011 lineup that I haven’t already mentioned, hopefully these will cross over into ACL
My Morning Jacket: Already talked about their magical-ness.
Deadmau5: Who also played ACL last year, blew everyone away, (duh!) 
Cee-Lo Green: He’s dumb and leaked that he was playing ACL this year, then ACL forced him to take that info offline. I was underwhelmed by this. blech.
Ween. Good stuff. Also playing Free Press Summer Fest in Houston this June.
Bright Eyes. Would love to see him.
Arctic Monkeys. Could fill Vampire Weekend’s slot and they are good, which helps. New music release as well.
Death From Above 1979. This would be fun to see. Especially since someone at this show at SXSW got STABBED. Damn.
Ratatat. Great group, lots of music to play. I’m just a wee bit scared what they’ll be like live. But I’m stoked.
Crystal Castles. Another one I’ve been dying to see, hopefully they’ll stay for ACL.
Cold War Kids. I recently missed them here in Houston. Good stuff, especially “Hang Me up to Dry” love.
Lykke Li. Really talented artist, love her.
Ok Go. Would be a super fun band to see.
Local Natives. Also a great group, could def. see them taking a day show.
The Kills. Delicious music. U R A Fever and Sour Cherry are amazing.
White Lies. A sleeper worth waking up to watch.
2 Door Cinema Club. Also played ACL last year, and were apparently really great. I’ve never seen them live but have heard many a good thing.
Sleigh Bells. HELLZ YES PLEASE. Just saw them recently in Houston, and a show like this could totally be amazing at ACL.
Smith Westerns. Great show.
Best Coast. Another band I’ve been dying to see live. Fingers crossed!
The Drums. Have come back lately into the spotlight and are bound to put on a great live set.
Black Lips. Good stuff.
Cults. Another one I’d like to check out for myself.
Noah + The Whale. Gaining popularity, wouldn’t mind watching that one.
Lissie. I missed her in concert. I think she’s great, she played Coachella as well.  
Ok, so now onto the ones that I just really really really REALLY REALLY would like to see at ACL and could maybe maybe maybe make an appearance…
Fleet Foxes. Ok, I don’t know if I can describe how much I love this band. When I first heard “White Winter Hymnal” I replayed it over.and over.and over.and over.and over and again. AND every time I heard it I couldn’t help but smile and bounce. Their new album “Helplesness Blues” released only 3 days ago will So, please please please bring Fleet Foxes to ACL!
Mumford & Sons: I mean…need I say more? INCRED. Also, they’ve been touring withAvett Brothers doing the railroad revival tour, AND they played opening weekend of Jazzfest. I will die of happiness if they are both featured.
Florence + The Machine. What has she been up to? I think she’d be a great addition. She has two shows here in America listed in June, and that’s it….surprise us Flo and come to ACL!
That’s all folks. I mean, I could add more but then I’d get my hopes up wayyy too much!
the psychic one who foretells music festival lineups…hopefully….

The Hipster Dilemma....(as seen on my new tumblr!)

I’m confused. 
Broad statement, right? So here’s what I’m confused about. It’s the Hipsters. 
Before you go out and get all offended and all “oh no she didn’t”, lemme break it down for you.
I just don’t get the Hipster movement. And here’s the kicker….They seem to be EVERYWHERE nowadays. Like when I went bicycle shopping the other day and the dude helping me (bless his poor heart by the way, because I am bicycle challenged and had no idea what the eff he was saying) kept saying “well, you might not like this, it’s just a hipster bike and there’s no real use for it” but by looking at him, I could’ve sworn he was part of the hipster movement. See where I get confused? I totes would’ve called this guy a hipster (not to his face) but I’ve NEVER heard someone call themselves a hipster. Is that bad? People talk, act, dress and apparently now bike like hipsters, but no one calls them self one….ummmm que?
Some more hipster questions I have. Please feel free to educate me on the subject. To be honest, I’m fascinated by the term….
1.) Am I a hipster since I have Chuck Taylors in my closet and own several vintage plaid shirts?
2.) Why are mustaches so hipster? Someone said it’s because they’re “ironic”. I have a Master’s Degree in literature and I perpetually fail to see the irony. Since when is facial hair ironic? Are beards ironic? Soul patches are creepy, but are they ironic now too? Are girls with mustaches in need of a good wax hipsters now too?
4.) Why do hipsters go to indie concerts and then have no idea about the music they’re listening to??? I went to a concert this weekend and I was awesome enough to be included in a hipster conversation, and NONE of them knew EITHER of the 2 bands playing. 
5.) Why do hipsters like irony so much? So many of them love “Ironic tattoos”….why?
6.) Why do hipsters all wear the same type of glasses? Most people don’t even look good in those frames. Is it because of Kanye?
Et tu Kanye?
Is he an honorary hipster or full fledged card carrying hipster? Do hipsters hate or love him? If it wasn’t Kanye, then WHO STARTED WITH THE GLASSES!?
7.) Why do people love to hate hipsters?
8.) Why is Pabst Blue Ribbon considered “hipster beer”???
9.) Do all hipsters shop at the same stores? Are you not totally hipster if your clothes aren’t all vintage? oh crap….I love vintage clothing, am I a hipster?!
10.) AM I A HIPSTER!?! What does it mean!??!
I don’t love or hate hipsters. This is a case study. 
oh…and no hipsters or animals were hurt in this investigation.
