Have been doing some research into banksy. i have a thing for graffiti and street art. My friend bought me a collective of banksy's work a while ago. I find him so interesting. I cant imagine that he has never been seen doing any of his works though......fascinating.

Banksy - I remember when this was all trees

he's a ghost.

Current Music Obsessions

So i have a couple of new obsessions. I have been doing a lot of VEVO surfing. This is my new favorite website. I have a soft spot for music videos.

Obsession in Music #1: Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi has such a fresh sound. I love that he works with artists like MGMT and Ratatat (Pursuit of Happiness) but also works with rap giants like Kanye West and Common. I think that he puts a lovely twist on rap music. He has great style, and lets be honest he's quite attractive. I enjoy how he samples other songs in his music as well, for example Poker Face by Lady Gaga. All in all I enjoy every bit of Kid Cudi...and you should too. I believe that he will be a serious influence on the future of rap music. This video is "Pursuit of Happiness" with MGMT and Ratatat. I feel that we all feel like this video sometimes. Sometimes everything around us in slow motion, and we are moving at the speed of light trying to find ourselves. I also enjoy the little Drake cameos. Oh yeah!

Obsession in Music #2: California Ska Punk Bands

I am just so happy to hear that Rome has joined forces with Sublime. I know they have been together for a bit but hearing Rome on the Lay Me Down track by The Dirty Heads made me appreciate him a lot more. I am listening to a lot of old school Sublime, and The Dirty Heads. This is just feel good music, and you cannot help but smile when you hear their music! I can't wait to hear the new Sublime with Rome material!

Obsession in Music #3: Asher Roth

I have always had a little soft spot for Asher Roth. He is just so great. I love his rhymes. I enjoy that he has an "i don't really care what you think" attitude. I also love that he is young. I am really excited for his new album. The newest song of his "G.R.I.N.D." I find pretty inspiring. G.R.I.N.D. meaning "Get Ready Its a New Day". In this song he mentions that "Happiness is not about getting what you want all the time, it is about loving what you have." A philosophy that we takes a bit to learn, but would be awesome if we could live by it. This song has been on repeat for days on my iPod. I recommend a good listen. Sadly there is not video yet, but hopefully there will be soon!

Well that is that for music obsessions. There are other crushes on lyrical and melodical stylings but that will have to wait!

On a sidenote: what do people think of tumblr? I am thinking of switching over to Tumblr....
we'll see though.

Enjoy your day my lovelies.

Sephora...i love you.

Just got a wonderful email from Sephora today. They are having VIB customer appreciate days from the 6th-8th. I am so excited. I have already got my eye on some things...
Limited Edition Kat Von D Palette...
Kat Von D's Adora Lipstick
Red Lips are always daring...Can't wait to wear it somewhere fun!

Buxom Mascara. BEST. MASCARA. EVER.
Need to stock up on this one!

Buxom Lashliner...
This is something I am excited about. I love lining my upper lash line in black liquid liner, so I am excited to try out a "gel" liner.

Anyways....the excitement here is too much for words! I haven't been into a Sephora since I stopped working at a mall about 3 months ago. But it has been saving me money, so I guess its a good thing.

This weekend should be a good one (on top of the Sephora sale). I'm going to see my best friends at home this weekend and that should be wonderful! I can't wait. Perhaps we'll go out dancing or something and I can wear something fabulous. What that something fabulous is, i may never know....god i need to go shopping.

Harper Blynn -- loving it.

I just wanted to share that a band that I am currently listening to and loving! Their name is Harper Blynn. I saw them open for Wakey!Wakey! and they were really good. I went and bought their CD from them (signed and everything!). They have a soulful sound and can sing everything from a lovely twist on the song "Halo" (Beyonce Cover) to the bouncy upbeat original tune: "Loneliest Generation"

Here's a little taste of their sound

I also took some picture of them while I was at the show, thought i would share them with you. I really recommend checking these guys out. They are the real deal.

Enjoy my lovelies!

dresses oh my!

It is definitely that time of year when I want to just break out and wear dresses all the time! Unfortunately I have to wear steel toes at work (even though I work in an office) and steel toes and a dress don't work out to well. But sometimes...I rock it anyways. Just because...I love dresses. Sometimes i wish they made high heels in steel are some dresses I want for the season! I think that empire waists look best on me. And oh the lavender!
All of them are Faith it!

gold...and beth ditto.

I think I may have a current obsession with GOLD.
I am really REALLY loving it. I want to go buy a disco ball dress (yes that is a technical term) of GOLD! yes.
I love this one. Its the perfect balance of black and gold. Sadly it only goes up to a size medium...and guess what...that is DEFINITELY not large enough! Perhaps I can find one in the plus size fashion world.

I am currently also loving the song: Heavy Cross by Gossip. Beth Ditto's voice is so unique. And she is such a confident, strong, cool women who is always looking hip. In the video for Heavy Cross there is tons of gold. Maybe that's why I am liking it so much. Just gold glitter EVERYWHERE.

Makes one feel glamorous doesn't it?

I am just LOVING Wakey!Wakey! the piano skills of Michael Grubbs makes me melt! I cannot believe the skill and talent that he has. I just downloaded their album. Its so good. Makes me all happy yet thoughtful. This album is why i LISTEN to music. Just amazing.

Even the album title itself "almost everything I wish I'd said the last time I saw you." Love it. This album speaks to me in a way that nothing else has at this time. Sometimes we just need that music pick me up! And i FOUND IT!

Here's a little taste of what Wakey!Wakey! is all about this song is called "Brooklyn"

FINALLY! Vacation time.
Its gonna be a busy day today. So much for vacation! I have an interview, and I am waiting for furniture to be delivered. I also have to do laundry, pack, and get to a retreat 2 hours away all in a matter of a couple of hours.
I went and got these awesome chairs from Ikea yesterday. I got one for half price as well because it used to be a floor model. But it was perfect so its all good!

I really like them because they are the same pattern, yet different colours. I can't wait to get them. They should be coming any minute now. Hopefully they are going to be here before I have to go to my interview at the Museum.

Must go change the laundry over. More later...

Being on Truth Explosion Magazines website makes me want to go out and see some shows. I was looking at these pictures of Alexisonfire and they are just gorgeous!

The video is pretty heavy but i do like the imagery. When they are standing in the field of crosses I think it is amazing. I will have to watch it a few more times I it is though...

Somewhere Over the Rainbow: Dorothy Bubble Bar Cocktail!

We had such an exciting day at work today!! We got a bunch of new stuff in at Lush, including Dorothy Bubble Bar which smells amazing. It also is the prettiest shade of blue when you put it in the water. It just makes me feel happy! Me and my manager also put together a wonderful bath cocktail so I thought I would share it with you.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

1-Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistic
1 - Dorothy Bubble Bar
1/2 - Sunny Side Bubble Bar

Crumble your Dorothy bubble bar and your half of sunny side under running water. Add Vanilla Fountain bath ballistic and get ready to go to Emerald City in the great land of Oz. A beautiful relaxing bath that gives you a hint of whimzical with the wondeful gold sparkles!
You come out smelling like vanilla with a hint floral and citrus.
Your going to love it! Try it out!

Hope you enjoy that cocktail! Let me know if you try it out and give me some feedback! I can assure you the colour of the water will be amazing! It turns green just like an emerald!! I hope you like it! Maybe throw some Shimmy Shimmy on afterwards for an extra glowing touch....


me want me want!

So t0day has been a pretty good day. I am looking forward to the next couple of days off. I think i will go shopping. I am actually going to go vintage shopping. I live in a great little area where there are tons of Vintage shops. I really want some authentic vintage cowboy boots. I have been bidding on a pair on eBay. They are so pretty! I hope hope hope I get them!

I think I may try to put some things up on eBay. I am not sure exactly what I would sell, but I definitely feel I may be able to make some money. This may sound silly but I have a TON of Beanie Babies that I wouldn't mind getting rid of.....I wonder what they are going for now?

I also went into the Sunglass Hut the other day and have decided that I REALLY want these glasses. They look hot, and they are good for your eyes. Perhaps not the greatest for tan lines, but I guess I'll just have to remember to put lots of sunscreen on.
They are so expensive though. I guess that is the price to look cool, and be highly protected! I feel that Oakley is a good name in glasses. I feel they will be a good purchase......we'll see.

Goo Goo for GAGA!

I think that Lady Gaga is fabulous!

She just has everything for going for her right now! I just read an article about her in Cosmopolitan. I love reading the cover stories in Cosmo because they always have the hand written section of the piece. The part at the end where the celebrity fills out (in their own writing) a questionnaire. I love to see that Lady Gaga is so confident in herself and that she is herself and no one else. No matter how weird she dresses or how theatrical her shows may be, she rocks it...AND I LOVE IT!

Go listen to some GAGA -

new SHOES!

So today FINALLY my new shoes came in the mail. I ordered them online from Too Fast Cirque Couture, which is a really cool shop that specializes in Punk Clothing/Tattoo Clothing and Art. The shoes I ordered via Too Fast are made by Iron Fist one of my favorite companies to buy heels from! I think this is probably the most unique pair of shoes I own....ZOMBIE HEELS!

I am just so excited to wear these bad boys out somewhere. They are just so weird!! Love it!

I have been exploring the Too Fast website and I really want this:

I love gypsy artwork. It reminds me of myself. My friends call me a gypsy because I move around so frequently. That's just my life style I guess? I can't stay in one place very long or I get antsy! But I would love to move this piece of art around with me!

Listen to It!

Lush: Happy Blooming

Thought i would do a quick review of a new product called Happy Blooming that we just got a Lush Handmade Cosmetics. I am working at Lush Canada at the moment, and we haven't gotten these little darlings yet, but they are coming friends no worries! My Manager brought back one of these little morsels of joy from a meeting that she had. Sadly i had to split it with three people so I only got a little piece!

Happy Blooming is a bath melt. Basically what a bath melt does is it emulsifies the water into a moisturizing bath of goodness! Happy Blooming smells like cherry lemonade (my favorite kind of lemonade) and the little bit I had seemed pretty moisturizing, but i just wanted more of it. I feel when I take another bath with this I'm going to use the whole thing! Because I am a LUSH like that!! (Oh im so witty! not!)

The cocoa butter in this leaves you feeling moisturized and soft and there is also a little added bonus! There is calamine powder in this melt!! It is going to leave your skin feeling so soothed! Calamine is going to bring down any redness or itchyness that you might have. I wish we would have had this little baby in the winter because right now my skin NEEDS IT!

If you want to purchase a Happy Blooming from the Lush UK website they are selling them HERE, if you want to wait for North America to get them, we should be getting them by the end of March!!

oh god i can't wait for spring! HAPPY BLOOMING EVERYONE!

Album Review: Break Up

Scarlett Johansson + Pete Yorn - Break Up

From beginning to end this album is incredible. Pure GOLD! Pete and Scarlett have produced an album that hits the hearts of everyone that has been through a breakup. It makes me feel that I am going through the motions of a relationship that has fallen apart. From the playful yet sure beats of "Relator" to the realization of longing for the one you lost in "I am the Cosmos" to the final step in a break up where you have let go: "Someday."

The song "Someday" has to be my favorite on the album.

"All I ask for is a state of mind
where i can keep myself in line
with all the changes and
all that stays the same,
i think i'll leave the past behind"

The song speaks to me in a way that nothing else does. I feel it defines many things that I need to conquer in my life at the moment.

This album has to be one of the most well put together and thought out albums I have ever heard. Every song is meaningful on its on, yet each one adds to the big picture. I have listened to this album over and over again, and have yet to grow tired of it. It is wonderful and I highly recommend putting it on your must have list!

An Inspiration...

Well it is time to start a blog.
I thought it was time for me to have one.
At this point, I am not exactly sure what to blog about. Mostly I think I will be blogging about my interests: Beauty, Fashion, Music, and General Life. I can't wait to get started and I am on my way! Thanks to my friend Katie for suggesting I start a blog! I feel I'm definetly going to enjoy this...

And begins.
