guaranteed to get all the ladies

(via facebook/friend)
can i have one (not a lady, a wolf/hat/scarf/pussy catcher) too? though i might play it safe & not wear it at the beach. i imagine that it would cause me to overheat....from being too sexy!

simple teetoe

i kind of really need new sandals. my favorite sandals are starting to die. i originally purchased them for a few bucks at tj maxx because they were one of the few non-leather sandals they had & until last summer i didn't really own sandals. (unless you count the pair of flip-flops that i used to wear every day, every time i showered because i used to live in a dorm & had to share the showers with way too many girls & i did not want to get their feet fungi...sorry, tangent.) anyway...i was really pumped to find these sandals because they not only look just like my favorite pair of sandals, they are vegan, eco-friendly & just an all-round nice sounding company. take a peek at their manifesto. less>more - i couldn't agree more with their entire method to making shoes...simple look, sustainable approach. the only thing i don't like (& it's a very minor complaint) is how the uppers are cotton eyelet. couldn't they have made them more simple & just used plain black cotton? oh well, my reasoning is that most people won't even be able to tell unless they are really up close to my sandals. as soon as i make some money (how many times have i said that now?), i'm going to snatch these babies up real quick.

where did all the fashion go?

honestly - i've just been too busy living to look at various fashion related things like runway shows, online shopping, etc. that's why i've just been posting pictured lately. hanging out with my friends is just about the only thing i do nowadays. sorry. maybe i'll find the time to more fashion related posts in the future. but right now it's hard enough trying to remember to post just the pictures that i've been taking lately.

i can die happy

i met tom robbins...awhile ago but still! i was so fucking happy. he's my favorite author of all time. i rode in the elevator with him & i was so excited i couldn't even speak or even look at him.

nobody but you

i want to say this to more than one person, but there is one person in particular that i'm thinking of. perhaps i should even say this to myself.

nobody but you

nobody can save you but
you will be put again and again
into nearly impossible
they will attempt again and again
through subterfuge, guise and
to make you submit, quit and/or die quietly

nobody can save you but
and it will be easy enough to fail
so very easily
but don’t, don’t, don’t.
just watch them.
listen to them.
do you want to be like that?
a faceless, mindless, heartless
do you want to experience
death before death?

nobody can save you but
and you’re worth saving.
it’s a war not easily won
but if anything is worth winning then
this is it.

think about it.
think about saving your self.
