*Berry* Dark

Pun intended. 🙂

I wish I could wear dark nail polish. But the thing is, I’m so pale, and look like Adam Lambert every time I go for the Revlon “Midnight Affair.” It’s a sparkly dark blue. Adam Lambert. This makes me sad, because he creeps me out a little.

So I was searching through my horror of a closet when I stumbled upon what I believe to be September 2008’s CosmoGirl!issue with Lauren Conrad (“The Hills”) on the cover.  I look through it, reminisce on last year’s trends, blah, blah, blah. Then! I got to the Beauty section. The first page is all about berry-colored dark nails. Which I now love. Or atleast just the red and dark fuschia colors. (:

CosmoGirl!

The polish used here is CND brand in “Baroque” (the red polish on the left) and “Velvet.” Remember that this is exactly a year old, and — I checked on it — these colors are no longer sold. Boo. But they have a nice collection now, anyway.

More fun indie style!

Try taking a hint from Karen O (or maybe just tone down the head dress a bit):

No head dress (headress/headdress) in sight!

Oh. There it is.

Oh. There it is.

Natasha Khan!

Radiating some of the weirdest music, Bat for Lashes is really fun. And, I discover a little too late, that their frontlady Natasha Khan has the coolest style I’ve seen in a long while. It’s blitz (pun!) : indie + eclectic + bohemian + hipster + Native American + who knows what + a little hint of lady-like (tulle headwear) + Lady GaGa (she ditched the pants).
Theres that tulle!

There's that tulle!

Those grampa undies are AWESOME.

But honestly, I want those shoes. ^ This is at Lollapalooza.

The British are coming! (x2)

Peaches Geldof!

Peaches Geldof!

Everyone loves this girl. She’s the store-stealer, British tabloid-megakid, NYLON prodigy. How could you not, really? She just gets what she wants. Oh, I see the contradiction in that….

But I do like Peaches. Her style, rather. Much like I like the above poster. ‘It Brits.’ Daisy Lowe, Peaches, Georgia Jagger (MY FAVORITE!!), Lily Allen, er, that’s all I can think of…. EXCEPT ALEXA CHUNG!!! Senorita Awesome TV Show is cooler than Lily Allen + Peaches combined! (But not as cool as Georgia, for the record.) I love It’s On with Alexa Chung. So funny. So digital.

How Many of Me? 1,536 to be exact.

There are 1,536 Talis out there, living, breathing, eating brownies that could be mine. And holding teddy bears. Cute ones with really soft fur. Like mine. His name is Emmett. I love him much, much, much!

How Many of Me?

It’s a totally free, no-strings-attached web site that tells you how many of you there are. You can type in your first name, last name, or both. AT THE SAME TIME. Wow. Look at how technology has evolved.

How primitive.

How primitive.

Try it. It is very fun. And addicting, for like three minutes. And fourteen point six nine eight four seconds, just to be precise.

BTW: There are 102 people named Harry Potter. There are 87 Edward Cullens. There is 1 me. 🙂

Cheerleaders? No, more like FIRECRACKERS.

This is so unbelievably AMAZING.

a tribute to all the hippie goddesses out there

This is EXACTLY what I want to wear on my first day back. It’s decided. This was my inspiration, from Poseur: Pretty in Pink:
