Happy 2014 TO ALL! Haven’t been able to do a “real” blog post since Christmas day and I’ve missed it so much! SOOO, what do you think of the new look? Made the switch and so far really liking WordPress and don’t plan to change it up EVER AGAIN as it’s a huge pain to get everything moved over correctly, etc. etc.

Bet you’re wondering what’s happened since Christmas, ya? Well, things have actually been pretty quiet, no, really! My friends and I threw a fancy potluck NYE bash in East Atlanta but really other than that it’s been low key life around these parts. Mostly due to a transition in my home with my last roommate moving out to head north to Colorado and getting the place ready for a new roomie to move in this week. Had to replace furniture that was sold/taken and just now getting my home back to feeling normal.  Redoing your home in the midst of the holidays isn’t ideal but revamping feels good especially since the place needed a good scrub down!

I’ll be putting together a “Best of 2013” post so check back in the coming days!

Date Night

meet my new “bed jacket”
bed_7 bed_3 bed_8 bed_1 bed_2 bed_4 bed_5
bought this pretty little lady on sale at Anthropologie and you can say we’ve already hit it off! so soft and silky with a perfect shape and transitional pattern it was a great spontaneous purchase.
as you can see my hair is in it’s awkward growing out stage, sucks but i don’t want to cut it though i need to do something so it doesn’t lay so weird for the next few months. 
these pictures are from Friday night’s date with my boyfriend, we ate a delicious Southwestern meal at Agave-try it out if you’re in the Atlanta area! (great for a date!)
hope yours weekend was splendid!

Days of The Dead

you could say im a little behind posting Halloween photos, but then again wouldn’t it be called a Flashback??
plus, in my defense i dressed up a billion times, as usual, so i had to gather all the photos. i can truly say these are DEF worth the wait, lets begin with
mother nature totally shat on us this day with the worst rain storm yet. but that didn’t stop fellow Zombie friends and i from trekking throughout Atlanta scaring the innocent and looking classily UNdead.
other Zombies left a trail of blood, not only in the cemetery but ALLLLLL over the city. didn’t feel that bad about the vandalization since it was being washed away by the rain..and it was nuts seeing ‘blood’ on cars, walls, Marta stations and elsewhere. you had to be there to fully understand!
such a classy UNdead man, right!?!
Harmony was the sacrificial bride. she didn’t mind.

moving along to Zombie Prom, hosted by Sorry Darlin as a part of the last SQAURE PEGZ ever!
Sarah and i were loaned “prom” dresses from Rosa of BodegaATL. mine was detailed with bright squiggly velvet and had tulle underneath that make it fluffy at the bottom which was much fun to dance in!
a little background story on my headgear…
it was found at a Cracker Barrel-weird huh?? in North Carolina on a roadtrip with my mom and brother. you know how they each have a gift shop built in and while you are waiting for your table its nice to look around at crap you wouldn’t ever buy. BUT to my surprise they had a fabulous Halloween section with all these great headbands, mini hats, and clips. at $9.99 there was no hesitation, just was hard deciding which one to pick! i decided on this all black one that has a spider on a web with pheasant feathers sprouting out the top and a great veil.
Kimerie, Myself and H$ caught posing for another photo by Zoe of Sorry Darlin.
crafty Harmony tucked spiders into her fishnets, so clever!

squealed with excitement when i found this vintage dress at JunkMan’s Daughter in L5P, i thought “How Perfect” since i was searching for Black//Red things that day for my BlackWidow idea. originally i was going to wear the headgear and a black dress with a DIY red glitter diamond .. but then upon discovering this piece decided to play on the spider and widow aspects of my idea. additionally i was THRILLED to wear my newly purchased black lipstick. but upon applying i realized it hardly showed up :(( so i improvised with black eyeliner, the lipstick and a shade of red. the outcome was A-Ok with me!
