Halloween giveaway!


There's just something about Zombies & Vampires that get me excited! Call me morbid,
I don't even care! You know why? Because it's Halloween & I can do/wear/say whatever I want WITHOUT the threat of being sent to a mental institution!

Top 10 Reasons Halloween is the most badass holiday:

1. We (women) can dress as slutty as we want (Hello, cliche)
2. Scary movies
3. 'Haunted' houses
4. Hilarious costumes!
5. Fake eyelashes
6. Trick r' treaters (Aw bebe's! 2 snickers 4 u!)
7. Candy
8. Fake blood
9. Fog machines

This year, D & I are attending our very first Zombie Dance Party in support of 2 awesome local bands; Social Ghost and Megaphone Music in Orlando! If you're in the area, you MUST check it out! Havoc will be wreaked on the streets, I'm sure of it!

& what's Halloween without a good costume contest?! If you are the first to correctly guess MY halloween costume, I will mail you a signed Social Ghost CD (courtesy of my buddy, Paul) AND e-mail you a $10 itunes gift card!


  • Contest ends November 1st.
  • Sorry mom, you can't enter.
  • Submit as many guesses as you want.
  • Leave your e-mail in the comments!'
Good luck & Happy Halloween!

Oh hai blogosphere! It's been awhile. The elaborate excuse for my absence? Well, first there was the whole 'saving-puppies-from-burning-building' debacle, then there was the 'last-minute-holiday-in-Paris' adventure. It's just been wild! Ha. In my dreams!

The real reason I haven't posted is very simple and boring: lack of inspiration. There. I've said it. It's out in the Universe now.

I live a pretty mundane, albeit busy, life. It's like a workout really. Work and class & work and class & work and class.. Lather, rinse, & repeat. It's easy to get lost in the routine tasks of grocery shopping, studying, and sitting in front of a computer screen refreshing twitter every day.

Not today though, friends. Not today. Today I am inspired! & by none other than these two fabulous ladies: Little Mayra & Love Maegan. If you don't follow their blogs, you must! My head is spinning with leather-studden Louboutin and DIY fashion projects. Jay-Z's "Forever Young" & Lady Gaga's "Fashion" are my internet 'shopping' soundtracks today.

I love that fashion resuscitated my creativity today! You see, I am (what I'll coin as) a fashioneer.

fash⋅ion⋅eer  [fash-uh-neer-]


A fashionista in disguise. A person with an eye for fashion, esp. one who does not always dress fashionably. One who suffers with {illness} LLE (Laziness, Lack of creativity, and el-brokeness).

Today I am letting my fashionista shine! Today I feel bold. I feel like throwing my 6' stilettos at a dartboard and shouting "FUCKING FIERCE" in front of my boss. I feel like wearing a leather studded mini skirt. I feel like welding metal shoulder pads. Fashion, bitches!

Katy Perry said it all when she wore this shirt yesterday:
{this is the real shit. shit that makes you feel shit.}

My questions to you are:
What inspires you? How do you get out of a creative slump? Are you a fashioneer?
