For the past couple days I have been sick, nothing too bad but definitely taking it easy on myself. As a result I ended up watching a lot of Glee and Doctor Who which lead to some very interesting dreams of the Glee kids getting covered in krillitane oil and fighting with song as one of the Doctor Who villains tries to suck their faces off… I also watched a couple of glamorous 80s movies Purple Rain and Less Than Zero. It’s great how at the night clubs guys are always in suits, girls in big hair and shoulder pads. so I decided to make collages for you.
Less Than Zero is very Miami Vice meets Dynasty if everybody was really really depressed.
The costumes in Purple Rain are rich in their frills and velvet deliciousness as well as inspired songs and heartache.
And if that wasn’t enough 80s Glam Goodness for you today, check out Daily Mail for a peek at the Ibiza, Moments in Love photos by Derek Ridgers take in black in white in 1984. If you look closely, you’ll notice that some of the people in the background are dressed quite average/boring. It remind me of some of the parties I’ve been to almost 30 years later. At many events there are only the few and far between die hards who go all out and look amazing, sometimes I am one of them.
Last weekend friends put on a fun neon themed party. I was more inbetween as I wore layered tops of neon green, pink and purple with shorts with bright tights, oh and some tattoo redesign inspired glittery glow in the dark face make up. This is a photo from the bus, I’m wrapped up from the cold on the way to go dance.
When I was 18 years old I decided on a whim to get my first tattoo. There was a girl in my class who had the most delicate flower ankle chain and I wanted to be like her! Of course at the time I just thought it was my right of passage moment, actually that sounds better so lets stick with that…
When I was 18 I embarked on the right of passage of getting my first tattoo! I walked into the closest tattoo shop, picked a tattoo off a sheet and dropped down my $50 deposit. A week later I had a crooked diamond on my ankle; read FAIL.
*crude drawing depicting the missing 7th side in the tattoo I received.*
The shop owner told me that only the person who did the tattoo could fix the tattoo but thankfully I was able to get him to understand that the artist who mangled my leg was in NO WAY getting near me again even if he wasn’t holding a tattooing needle. The shop owner fixed the tattoo as best he could and it was always a sore spot for me that I have this slightly crooked tattoo on my leg.
So I have after many years finally decided to get it covered up. Stay tuned for Part II; Finding An Artist.
Okay maybe that title is a bit harsh, but not really. This is definitely old news but recently I started watching Dawson’s Creek on Netflix only to discover that a majority of the music has been changed. Season Two alone has 95 song replacements! I can live without I Don’t Want To Wait annoying me in the opening credits but when you take a romantic scene set to Kiss The Rain by Billie Meyers and change it to a song I’ve never heard before (If You Came Back by Tommy Holmes) it kind of breaks my heart. Save Tonight by Eagle-Eye Cherry, Run-Around by Blues Traveler, How by Lisa Loeb and Hold on To Me by Cowboy Junkies gone! If you don’t know who any of these artists are, that’s okay. It just means you probably aren’t a 90′s kid like me and you should go immediately to youtube and watch their videos. Apparently they had a lapse in their music rights before the dvds were made.
If you like to analyze things you can see all the songs including the replacements here; http://www.freewebs.com/everythingdawsonscreek/musicguide.htm.
And yes, James Van Der Beek is crying about it.
This nine carat white gold box chain from JewelleryWorld arrived recently for review and I have no hesitations recommending the loveliness of this chain. It is of high quality and looks gorgeous. It arrived promptly and in a beautiful jewelry box. It is available as a 16, 18 or 20 inch chain. If this simplicity isn’t your style this website is loaded with rings, pendants, earrings and so much more, check them out!
These were my other favorites;
Dogs and kids in cute costumes, enjoy!
