chase away the winter blues

I don't handle winter very well. It just seems like...
A) end of the year, I'm always stressed with the mixture of holiday shopping and overwhelmed with work because everyone goes on vacation except me, leaving me to do everything.
B) dry dry skin! argh! my face, my body, everywhere. hate that dry winter skin feeling
C) static. my hair is flying everywhere and I fear opening doors, because of the static shocks.
D) nothing is ever warm AND cute enough. i'm bundled up to the max and not looking cute. the angora hair from my sweaters bother my eyes.

the solution? let's all go to Australia!

Sgt. Pepper

I'm obsessed with military-esque looks. I want all of the above. Obsessed, really.

She makes me move magnetic forces and super glue

Yesterday was the Christmas sweater fest at the Echoplex. I wanted to go, but I didn't. Or couldn't. This weekend was crazy busy running errands. Also, I did not have a Christmas sweater to wear. The lineup was awesome though: Deadly Syndrome, Castledoor, Happy Hollows! I love them all! Love! Yes. I love my LA bands for sure. Maybe next year I will wear a super rad sweater and go so I can win.

I need you around

I've been in a major funk lately and the sh*ttiest mood today. Can't really describe it. I need to recharge or something. It's like the stage after your burnt out and having your world rocked again emotionally when you were settling down. Oh, emotions... And I broke my nail last night while bowling. I totally suck at it. Only did it because it's free. Yeah... So somebody...

"I'm lost and I need to be found
Crazy as it sounds, I need you around"

but I'm not happier than you

Random files I had saved on my desktop. Love the looks, right? On black Friday, I went out late in the afternoon and there was so much traffic everywhere, the gas stations had lines, I couldn't even get into the mall parking lot. I just came back home. I decided I would do online shoping and go early in the morning Saturday. It was funny.

God Save the Queen

I am obsessing over this jacket. So gorgeous. I need it. But I can't afford it. Look at the quality and the tailoring. Drool. And it's so punk rock. I would totally wear it with black skinny jeans and my fav Sid Vicious tee shirt. Or maybe with acid wash jeans. Sigh...

Let me guess you're in a band

So there is a show called "Frock Me" in the UK, hosted by Alexa Chung and Henry Holland. Creative fashion styles, strutting to live bands like The Kooks, pointy oxford shoes, piano suspenders, drumstick in the hair, omg. Why are there no shows like this in the US? Omg. I love this.

Btw, I told my sister, if we were in a band wearing lots of frocks, I would begin the set by screaming "are you ready to frock & roll?" (of course, I thought of this before ever hearing about this show, ha!)

Ode to Little Radio

Oh my stars! I just wanted to say how much I absolutely love Little Radio. For instance, today, they played Becky, Neat Neat Neat, Rockaway Beach, Love Will Tear Us Apart, God Save the Queen, ReadySteadyGo, Buzzcocks, and then some. On other days, they play Morning Benders, Earlimart, Belle&Sebastian, LittleOnes, etc. Good music makes me so incredibly happy! Thanks, Little Radio!!!!

Hair bands

Sometimes I fantasize about being in a glam rock glitter hair band. They still do exist. I stumbled upon their music video one day, and I yelled "Please! Tell me they really do dress like that and this is not some cheesy concept video!!!!" and yes, this is a modern hair band from Mexico called Moderatto. I love it.

I really need to learn how to do my eye makeup like him.

You can get a head start and buy these bleached jeans (on sale!) by Corpus at Urban outfitters.

You're welcome.

A New Romance with Myself

I think I need this to cheer myself up because I am just in the sh*t mood these days.

This girl

She's so cool. If you know me, I don't like to dress risque or let everything show. I'm very "conservative" but stylish, fashionable, glamorous, and flashy. Mostly dress very masculine as well. Some people call me a nun. I just have a different idea of what looking great is. Like this girl. Omg, perfection. So clean, so cool.

So far away and I just can't see you. So far along and I just don't need you.

Did you know that Tegan and Sara are playing 4 nights at the Henry Fonda Theater? Amazing. And guess who's supporting? Girl In a Coma. Unreal. They are two amazing sounding bands. Should be very exciting. You should really check it out.

Fly A Kite

So I heard this nice song on the local music show on Indie103.1 on Sunday evening. The band was called "So Many Wizards". The song was "Fly A Kite". I loved it so much I made a note to check out their myspace. Yes, this is their album. Probably the most wonderful album packaging I've ever seen. Please go check it out and maybe score yourself a handmade with love album.

Count in fives

(awesome at 2:49)

No one. I repeat, NO ONE is cooler.

I am on your side

Oh, Ryan. I really don't care that you went out with Mandy Moore. It was a little exciting to see you on trashy celeb blogs while simultaneously I was turning green with envy. I'm glad that's over now because I wouldn't want to keep seeing you on those sites. I like seeing these videos of you, and listening to "Come Pick Me Up" on cold rainy days. And you can always go out with me because there are no paparazzi following me.

Love this picture........ I'm gonna blow it up and get it framed, or better yet, posterize it and hang it up.

SFC : Kings of Leon

You try singing, let alone writing, King of the Rodeo. You try cutting your hair, dressing like that. You try sounding like that live. I don't think you can. Excited much about their new album?

Got my high from the second one. Kept my eye on the first one.
