Happy Halloween!












Went to work as usual on Halloween. Worked out at the gym after that and then went to Managerial Accounting class for my brain to be tortured. When I got home from class I scrounged around trying to come up with a quick costume from stuff I already own. Blonde wig, leopard print dress, studded leather jacket, boots, red lipstick & bandanna. Put it all together and I resembled a biker chic or something of the sort. Then Cori came over in here batgirl costume and we went and ate at El Ranchero. Then we stopped at Walmart for a few items and I proceeded to act like a complete weird dancing and yelling and weirding people out. Ate some candy and chilled. So that was Halloween, oh how I miss being a kid. :-/

Steven Tyler replied to me on Twitter!!!!!

It is 1:49am on October 30th 2012 and Steven Tyler just tweeted me about 40 minutes ago! I have been trying to get him to respond to me for months now. He responds to fans all the time but since he has close to 700,000 followers on Twitter it is hard to get a response from him. When I saw he replied to me I started screaming and now am sitting here still grinning like an idiot. :-D Here are screen shots of Steven's reply to me:

"...your face is like a melody, it won't leave my head"


I recently bought this Express leopard print dress from a thrift store.I paired it with my Candies denim bustier top, black tights and new brown boots. This was another Aerosmith concert possibility but didn't make the final cut. I have though officially decided on the dress I will wear to meet Steven & Joe again...I just bought it this past weekend at Pitaya and I'm so excited I found it.
Anyways when the concert gets here I will of course post a look in the final concert outfit and the pictures from the meet & greet as well! :-) Anyways here are more shots of my look:






(check out my amazing new boots!!!! love them)


Dark Paradise

All my friends tell me I should move on
I'm lying in the ocean, singing your song
Ahhh, that's how you sang it
Loving you forever, can't be wrong
Even though you're not here, won't move on
Ahhh, that's how we played it

And there's no remedy for memory your face is
Like a melody, it won't leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side

All my friends ask me why I stay strong
Tell 'em when you find true love it lives on
Ahhh, that's why I stay here

And there's no remedy for memory your face is
Like a melody, it won't leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you

But that there's no you, except in my dreams tonight,
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight

There's no relief, I see you in my sleep
And everybody's rushing me, but I can feel you touching me
There's no release, I feel you in my dreams
Telling me I'm fine

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you

But that there's no you, except in my dreams tonight,
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight

Everybody Told Me Love Was Blind...


Yesterday I went downtown and did a little shopping. I found this yellow Love Bites tee by Obey at Urban Outfitters on sale for $10. With the tee I am wearing a leather hooded jacket, plaid scarf/shaw, Princess Vera Wang skinnies and combat boots. I also bought this amazing burgandy knit hat yesterday at Kohls. The hat I'd seen last time I was at Kohls but it was a little pricey, but it was on sale yesterday!!!! So here is my newest look. Hope you like it.





Lucky Ones

Let's get out of this town, baby we're on fire
Everyone around here seems to be going down, down, down
If you stick with me I can take you higher, and higher
It seems like all of our friends are lost, nobody's found, found, found
I got so scared I felt no one could save me
You came along, scooped me up like a baby

Every now and then the stars align
boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones
Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally you and me are the lucky ones, this time

Boy get into my car, got a bad desire
You know that we'll never leave if we don't get out now, now, now
You're a careless con, and you're a crazy liar
But baby, nobody can compare to the way you get down, down, down
I tried so hard to act nice like a lady
You taught me that it was good to be crazy

Every now and then the stars align
boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones
Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally you and me are the lucky ones, this time

Feels like, feels like, you know it feels like falling in love for the first time
Feels like, feels like, you know it feels like falling in love

You think that I'd be over you...after all these years



So another Aerosmith concert is quickly approaching and I have been buying a few dresses trying to figure out what to wear for when I get my photo taken with Steven Tyler & Joe Perry again. This dress I found on Etsy and ordered from a seller in Australia. When it came in the mail it fit oddly so I had to alter it a bit because the fabric on the belly was pooching out, so once I shortened the dress it pretty much fixed the problem. I decided I won't end up wearing this to the Aerosmith show on November 25th but I still think it's adorable. So I paired the dress with black leggings, red suede wedges and by suggestion by my best friend Cori, I added my Minnie Mouse ears that I'd bought at Disneyland a few years back.

I followed Alice into Wonderland



I recently bought this sheer maroon dress and brown boots at TJ Maxx. I paired them with black tights, a floral belt, necklace and bracelet I recently made and my over-sized wooden cross necklace. It was supposed to rain most of the day...so I went out and tried to get some more fall photos before the rain knocked all the leaves from the trees.






















The necklace and bracelet I made 


My boots






"...I followed Alice into Wonderland 

I ate the mushroom and I danced with the queen 
Yeah we danced in between all the lines 
I followed daylight right into the dark 
Took to the Hatter like a walk in the park..."

The Colors of Fall

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:11 

I love taking pictures in Fall, the colors are just spectacular. So today after church I grabbed my camera and tripod and took off driving with no particular destination. I ended up near some elementary school where a lot of the trees were quite pretty, then I drove on down the road a bit and stopped when I saw a small old abandoned church and graveyard, there was a lot of color there so I tried to capture it. I wore a Fall inspired outfit today so I took the time to also get some shots for lookbook as well. So, here are the pics:
