Goodbye & Thank you

It’s been a long time coming. I lost my mojo a while back, but I’ve decided to finally hang up my blogging shoes for good. My blog site will stay up until its time to renew my wordpress, but after that, I’m taking it down. I’m sure I will take pictures again….eventually, but for now…I just don’t have the time, the willingness, or the drive to keep blogging.
I will continue doing blog management, as that has become my absolute favorite thing to do. I will support all the same stores and designers and bloggers…none of that will change. I just can’t keep up with commitments and deadlines. This hasn’t been an easy decision and I was going to try and wait until my 6yr mark in March, but I just can’t do it anymore.
I am so very grateful to all the designers, blog managers, and events that have allowed me the honor and privilege of representing them with my photos. I am sorry if I’m letting anyone down, but this is what I have to do for myself. It’s been an amazing journey. Thanks to everyone that has supported me along the way. Now, on to the next chapter!❤

This isn’t news

It’s safe to say that I’m a true crime junkie. I have been since I was a kid. I would buy those magazines that had true crime stories long before there were things like podcasts and internet. One thing that has always bewildered me are those people that have this mentality of “if I can have them, no one can.” Especially the ones that kill themselves after they kill the person they’re obsessing over. I mean, I get that they’re not in their right mind, cuz murder. But what sense does that make? If you really love someone, why would you want to end their life? Cuz they hurt you? Are you going to kill everyone that hurts you? I cannot wrap my mind around it! I guess it’s fairly obvious that this mindset is not about love at all. It’s self centered and selfish on a whole new level.
There’s a whole lot of things I don’t understand, but I am starting to understand that the more I learn about the human race, the less I like people. And trust? Nah, I don’t think I completely trust anyone, but this isn’t news. Anyone that knows me or thinks they know me, can tell you that while I seem pretty open…I’m actually pretty closed off. Go figure.

Retail Therapy Is Real

Retail therapy is a great quick fix for the blues or even the magentas (100pts if you get that). I mean, who doesn’t feel better after shopping? It’s exciting! Just don’t look at the bill or how much you spent right away. No sense ruining the buzz for no reason. Granted retail therapy is a short term solution for a bad mood and has no real therapeutic value, but at least at the end of it you have something to show for your money. Thus, I must argue that it is a far better vice than drugs (except marijuana lol), alcohol, or gambling (especially if you suck at it.) While, it none of the aforementioned proclivities can replace actual therapy, it is a great way to perk yourself up.
There are some lasting benefits to shopping, too. You buy multiple items and you get excited each time you use/wear one of your new items for the first time. Then as you discover more about the items, its even more exciting. OMG, you mean this dress has pockets!?!? See? We all know women love some pockets! This blender is also a food processor? WHAT?!?! See? Exciting! Again, I’m not suggesting you use retail therapy to put yourself in the poor house or to replace actual therapy, but the next time you’re feeling a little blue…give it a try, I think you’ll discover that I’m right….as usual. *grins*

Don’t Ask

I’ve never understood why someone’s past matters to someone that wasn’t even part of it. If you didn’t kill someone or molest a child or torture animals, I just don’t think it should matter. Who cares how many people someone dated or fucked or almost married? Why should any of that matter to someone that’s not been part of your life until now? I’ve heard so many people, especially men, just lose their shit over the amount of lovers someone’s had in their past. What I don’t understand is why? A woman can push a baby from her vagina and still remain tight. So, there’s no stretching of the vagina that comes from having multiple dicks up in it. We bathe. We move forward. We hopefully recover from trauma, both mental and physical. So, why is it some ridiculous bother? I don’t care how many lovers someone I’m with has had in the past. I prefer the “don’t ask” rule, but if you do ask, be prepared for the worst answer you can imagine. If you’re not prepared for that, then don’t ask. No one in the past matters. If they did, they wouldn’t be in the past.

Something Surprising

Well, here it is, officially Halloween. Now the jack o lanterns will begin to rot, but all the other decor can carry over into the rest of the year in one way or another. I mean, there’s plenty of reasons to use the dark macabre stuff…depending on what styles you like. I personally love mixing the unexpected with the “norm” to create something surprising. Like a romantic dinner for two in an overgrown abandoned building. *grins*

Can you tell I like donuts?

When I was growing up I knew of two donut shops in the whole city. One was a local shop that was really close to our house. The other was Krispy Kreme, but I had no idea this was part of a chain. I thought we had the only one. So, when I saw the donuts in the grocery store, I found it really odd that anyone would buy them there instead of just going and getting them when they were “HOT NOW.” For those that don’t know the chain, they have a neon light that pops on when the donuts are just done which is the absolute best time to eat them. They melt in your mouth and they are amazing! Of course, a few years later I figured out that you can also achieve this “HOT NOW,” melt in your mouth effect, by popping them in the microwave for a few seconds. However, it wasn’t until I heard about Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell eating them in New York that I realized Krispy Kreme was part of a chain! I was sheltered and naïve, okay? Now that I’m all grown up and far less naïve, I’ve discovered that the best donuts come from different places! Nothing beats a “HOT NOW,” which is what I honestly thought Krispy Kreme donuts were called for most of my childhood. However, for a proper Boston Cream, it has to be Dunkin. Never count out a local donut shop or grocery store bakery though, cuz Publix (a grocery store chain) makes the BEST apple fritters! Can you tell I like donuts? LOL

Trick or Treat

So, with all the hubbub about Halloween and so many countries believing this is strictly a United States thing, I wanted to do a little digging into the history of it all. Turns out we can thank the Irish, the Canadians, and Hollywood for the whole idea of Trick or Treating that we all know today. Rather than trying to explain this all myself, I’ve attached a short five minute video that explains it far better than I can. Enjoy!!

This gun’s for hire

Messages keep getting clearer
Radio’s on and I’m moving ’round my place
I check my look in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man, I ain’t getting nowhere
I’m just living in a dump like this
There’s something happening somewhere
Baby, I just know that there is
You can’t start a fire
You can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark
Stay on the streets of this town
And they’ll be carving you up all right
They say you gotta stay hungry
Hey, baby, I’m just about starving tonight
I’m dying for some action
I’m sick of sitting ’round here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
Come on now, baby, gimme just one look

neither ever nor never

(please put me to bed and turn down the light)
fold down your hands
give me a sigh
put down your lies
lay down next to me
don’t listen when I scream
bury your doubts and fall asleep
find out I was just a bad dream
let the bed sheet soak up my tears and watch
the only way out disappear
don’t tell me why
kiss me goodbye
for neither ever nor never
goodbye
neither ever nor never
goodbye

neither ever nor never
