1. BERNIE

Over the last few months, Jesse and I's beloved baby Bernie have had some close calls with some illness - it's been a real roller-coaster of emotions, and we were very close to losing him last week. But, he's a big strong guy and after almost two weeks at the Vet, has managed to make his way back home! We're hoping for a full recovery, and he's doing well and very happy! I don't care what anyone says - my cats are my family. I love and treat them like family, and like family - I would do absolutely anything for them. I am over the moon happy to say that Bern is back home and doing better. Thank you to everyone for all the love and support!



2. WHEN JESSE COMES HOME

Jesse's been out on the road a lot... actually, most of 2014! But that bitch year is over, and soon my future husband will be at home - WITH ME - for a good chunk of time. Finally! Gonna pop some champagne -only four more days. FOUR MORE DAYS.



3. ST. VINCENT - DIGITAL WITNESS

Obsessed with her/this song/this album. Cannot stop listening. 



4. DAISY STREET UK

My new favourite online place to shop! Discovered this little gem a few weeks back - not only do they have cutting edge fashions for super cheap prices, but they carry a lot of looks that are hard to find at your typical clothing shops. For example - I'm a sucker for collared, 60's-inspired print dresses and tops. And look at these three dresses that I ordered for less than $100! I can't wait to rock these frocks! www.daisystreet.co.uk


5. GET LO

The brand new Bangs & Blush -FREE- Thursday night dance party, GET LO, launches February 5th! YOUR THURSDAYS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME! All 2000's, all night long! So excited for this!

Just realized Connie Conehead in Coneheads has the same girlfriends as Jodi Kramer in Dazed And Confused




You know those terribly cold, winter mornings where you open the drapes and - wow - the sun is out, there ain't a cloud in the sky and the hopes that Spring is just around the corner creep into your heart. These are songs to play for that very special day! Enjoy!

my folks tell me stories about the first album i was obsessed with - madonna; by age 3, 4 i must've been putting my folks through hell playing the true blue album till it broke. but after that came the monkees. my parents had a few of their albums, and every night before bed time my mom let me watch the partridge family, followed by the monkees. i then recieved a vhs copy of 'head' on my 5th birthday from my aunt terry. everything changed after that. ladies and gentlemen, i present to you the full-length film 'head', released in 1968 and written and directed by bob rafelson and non other than jack nicholson. yes, the jack nicholson. smoke a joint and enjoy!
