dear bloggerville,

i deeply apologize for the mini hiatus. I was once told by a gentleman (of sorts:) that, if you spend your time doing really cool shit... there would be no time to blog about it.... i personally completely disagree with the aforementioned statement, but have been doing really cool shit ( & not blogging) nonetheless.

examples:

i wrote an incredible resignation letter & handed it into to my bosses notifying them that i will be leaving my corporate America banking position to take a job with a local metal recycling company for a higher income. they flipped. i'm thrilled.

i found the perfect mermaid tail at a fabulous costume shop in sunny Jacksonville, Florida & fulfilled my life long dream of dressing up as a mermaid. i rocked the shit out of some blue hair, in addition to beautiful seashells hailing from St. Augustine that i attached on my small boobies. It was amazing. Whats even better?? i got to wear this get up with my favorite people down South for a BFF Halloweenie bash hosted by my lovely old FSU roomie. i came in second place in the costume contest, but have no quams about losing to Edward Scissorhands. Truly, great time.

i went to my very first Dolphins game at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami! So exciting to be surrounded by teal & orange & fabulous phins fans!! Completely brilliant - minus all the annoying Steeler's fans & extremely retarded refs hailing from Pittsburgh who just so happen to make absolutely absurd calls that cost us a win. whatev, still a lot of fun... late, hungover, & leaving as a loser ~ the company was the best part!

i met some ridiculously awesome people over the weekend who i will now refer to as friends & had a sick time dancing, laughing, sharing stories & boozing with. It's always so fun to interact with new individuals, learn new things & smile over common traits.

today, i picked out the wall colors of my lovely new office, as well as the main lobby color for my new working digs. Soon i will picking out my new desk & working in an adorable environment free of a dress code, embracing creativity, new ideas & a quaint little ipod boombox will be present. color me ecstatic.

it would seem as though all the little pieces are falling into place & guess what??? Halloween is right around the corner! love, love, loving life!

Best app out for cellular devices?? Shazam. I've been a fan of the art of Shazam~ing since last August when i first acquired my smart (& by smart i do mean genius) phone. Perfect for those moments in the car or when gazing a film & you hear something so absolutely wonderful you have to know what band is behind the magical notes...

this past weekend i caught myself singing along to a lovely tune whilst driving Daisy & immediately shazam~ed it. i then felt a rush of deja entendu... & while scrolling through my "tags" in shazam discovered that not only did i tag it on October 15th, but also on September 15th, along with August 15th. odd i said to myself.

Destiny led me to believe that i needed to pick up Mumford & Son's album immediately. I'm featuring them for obvious reasons. Hailing from West London & they are incredible. Together for three years, i'm completely gutted i'm only meeting them now. better late than never ♥


cheers!!

to a new chapter of my life...

i am absolutely beside myself with excitement!! You see, one aspect of my life will be shifting in a new direction in the very near future, and it really couldn't have came at a more perfect time. Change is always a good thing. I suppose generally speaking it is anyway, it gives you a chance to grow & learn & experience new things. I am for all of the above.... & so it seems the universe has a way of settling things out for us, or for me at least. I've decided to jump on a new opportunity that has presented itself & truly believe it's going to be wonderful. I'm one of those dreamers who does believe everything happens for a reason, & i think all the little puzzle pieces are aligning themselves to form my lovely picture little by little :)

Dear Great Travelers of the Blogosphere,

Just wanted to share a little darling wreath i have created in honor of Halloween...

i love creating things! this is me nerding out goth grandma style & getting all crafty... i wrapped a straw wreath with gray yarn & then attached black roses & leaves along with the skull of a tiny Asian man. Ok, i'm joking... He was actually just a small man whose race i am unaware of. I have since named him Herb & he is making quite the addition to my living room wall.

I'm officially counting down the days & officially in desperate need of a costume, pumpkins that morph into jack-o-lanterns, a trip to a haunted house in addition to scary movies on my couch.... :) happy haunting!

COME ON BRO!! In honor of this fabulous day recognizing Christopher Columbus i bring you a special themed Melodic Mondaze.


whats your policy on Columbus Day? Its a legit holiday, & unfortunately i didnt get the pleasure of celebrating it today. WEAKKKKK!! SO, i am curious, would you, yes you, glorious internet browser, be interested in forming a union to bring back our sweet Columbus day of awesome remembrance??? Message me with a plan. I'm so down. Check out what a serious bad ass mug this man had...

He needs our love! We need his holiday! :)

to: Mr. Strawberry Fields forever (with love)


You would be seventy years old today ~ had you survived the cruelty that came towards you in the form of a bullet. What an incredible inspiring artist the universe lost that day. How beautiful is it though, that you live on inside the minds & hearts of millions world wide. We absolutely adore you. You make me dream of living in the sixties & seventies, you make me believe that there is possibility for change & peace, & that "everything is clearer when you are in love". Of course John's music will live on forever, & i so hope that so will his independent thought & revolutionary desire for peace. Happy Birthday John Lennon, thanks for all the songs ♥

you may say that i'm a dreamer... but, i'm not the only one.


i hope some day, you'll join us & the world will live as one.

pumpkin LOVE


i am currently jumping inside my skin with excitement to go & purchase some pumpkins from the pumpkin patch down the street. Carving pumpkins is so much fun & when they morph into jack-o-lanterns, they become oh so lovely to admire, & equally fun to smash at the appropriate time. It's currently at the top of my fun 'To-Do List' along with completing my Halloween wreath! ahhhhhh & i still haven't decided what i want to dress up as this year, i went into a couple shops & tried on a costume but couldn't commit. Imagine, having commitment issues with fabric to be worn Halloween. I became hesitant mainly because i couldn't decide whether or not to be something organic/unique or something typically cute & or slightly sexayyyy. I'm not sure exactly when it just became the holiday to skank up every costume, but that's pretty much where it's at currently. Last year i was Alice, this year i'm a little eager to do something more dark.... though i really enjoyed my blond wig last year :) this is me crossing my fingers i figure it out before it's too late!!


P.S. Drunk Pumps are extremely badass.

The Cure... one of the absolute best bands to jam to with the top down. Seeing that i am in the middle of completely perfect drop top weather its only fitting that i rep one of the best. i love this song, these lyrics & the smile it brings to my face every time i hear it.


inspiring images

After a horrific dream invaded my subconscious last night i found myself browsing pretty, inspiring photographs online. i seriously was absolutely, and completely terrified. When i awoke, gasping for air, I could not convince myself i was safe in between my deep plum organic sheets. i laid terrified that the man who chased me for days in my dream, only to trap me, throw acid in my face, & place the barrel of a gun to my head would appear armed with vengeance in my own reality. Quite dark. I purchased a dream decoder book, so intelligently titled 'Big Bad Ass Book of Dreams' this weekend & have been trying to make some sense of recurring themes. I'm finding it interesting to say the least. here's to pleasantly cheery wandering thoughts as i enter dreamland tonight...











my stale fortune cookie contained a note that said "you love to live life." i became overwhelmed with a strong desire to play the lottery winning numbers on the back... naturally i can't find it now, so thats out... to think i was this close to being a millionaire :D
