i am a huge mascara nerd; i've pretty much tried everything twice, except for that vibrating mascara which i saw my old manager trishelle putting on at work and it freaked me out. i think alongside my hair that my eyelashes are my best and most favorite feature so i gotta keep the lock down on those bitches. great last and covergirl lash blast in very black are the bests, me thinks.
and also rosey cheeks are a must for every fair-skinned girl like me. it instantly wakes up my tired or washed out face. may i recommend joe fresh's blush? it's super cheap and fantastic.
3. hair spray
i don't really use much hair product at all, but my hair is very thin and very straight so it doesn't take to keeping volume very well; hence me using hair spray! it stays as apposed to gel's and waxes which pretty much do nothing.
noted and understood.
5. american apparel briefs
i'm a huge fan of classic, sexy and staple women's lingerie and i love lace and bows and pastels and sweet little things like that... but when it comes down to it, i want to wear american apparel briefs every day. they are super cute, comfy and come in every colour under the rainbow.
there is nothing more important when trying to make an impression with a special boy or girl (aside from being memorable, funny, sweet and totally awesome) is your signature scent. the sense of smell is the strongest linked to memories; i can still remember the cologne my first boyfriend wore. i personally enjoy very sweet perfumes and am currently wearing, hilariously, juicy couture's viva la juicy; it's ever so tasty.
7. john hughes movies
are you kidding me?
8. my pets
need i say more? they have the most amazingly ridiculous personalities, they hang out with me, they play with me, and they keep me company. i hope they get old and fat along with me as long as possible.
i don't do anything without music; eating, drinking, talking, reading, smoking, showering, walking, thinking... i need music on AT ALL TIMES. having an ipod back in my life has been wonderful, and barely a second goes by in my day where i'm not listening to tunes and that's the way i like it. here are the top songs that are on constant repeat:
- message in a bottle - the police
- if i ever feel better - phoenix
- as we go along - the monkees
- blue skies - noah and the whale
- walkabout - atlas sound
- astronaut - beach house
- crazy - patsy cline
- evident utensil - chairlift
- walking - the dodos
- cut me up - har mar superstar feat. karen o

(your face here)
if you're one of the luck mother fucks who gets to live with me, you know that before i even open my eyes i have somehow managed to get myself to the kitchen and make a cup of coffee. i drink a hell of a lot of tea too, but i don't need tea like i need coffee.
12. everything i own that is wool and or knitted
socks, sweaters, scarves, cardigans, hats... i am a real creature of comfort. and in shitty winter times like these, i need to be nuzzled and toasty. and if it has shiny beads sewn onto it or even shoulder pads then that's a double plus.
13. my tattoos
they're obviously here to stay and not going anywhere, but i sincerely love my tattoos. and i get a lot of nice compliments on them. and again, i'm happy with them.
14. the mighty boosh
my favorite show and my favorite oddball escape with my favorite british comedians; i will never grow tired of this and i'm crazy excited for more new material. pleeease give it a try if you haven't already.
15. the beatles
i sure love my beer and my wine; i'm still sort of a puss with hard liquor, but i'm trying my best. i'll pretty much drink anything, who am i kidding.
17. my mac
without my beloved baby, i wouldn't be able to write this blog. that and i wouldn't have the internet. fuck, i love the internet. i owe most of my nerdy, world-famous reputation of being a bottomless pit of useless knowledge to the internet; i love to research, learn and investigate. i also love to stay in the loop. thank you, internet.
18. my camera
now, i don't really have a camera per-say, but i plan on getting myself a nice fancy pants one. i really enjoy having photo evidence of most of the stupid things i've done in my life or shared with my favorite people. nothing sucks more than getting tagged in a really horrible photo, but at least you can learn from your mistakes.
19. cadbury cream eggs
when it comes to chocolate/candy, whatever, i'm usually not a big fan. i don't have much of a sweet tooth. but there's just something about cadbury cream eggs; i'm going to throw it all out there and say that these are my absolute favorite chocolate/candy in the entire world. nom nom nom.
20. love squeezin's
yeah yeah, sure. i'm a tough girl (i think) and most of the time i prefer being alone. but there's nothing like good love squeezin's. hugs and kisses. what really beats that? there's nothing that can really top good cuddle sessions.
21. value village
i love shopping in general (i think we all have gotten a good jist of that by now), but what other place can you find a jacket, a shirt, pants, skirts, a dress, a purse, shoes, tacky artwork, old ashtrays, a baby casio keyboard and a casset tape collection from the 70's which could potentially all come out to under $50? yeah, YEAH.
22. frilly/flashy/tacky things
i'm such a sucker for shine. i like simple, classic things, yes. but i also love a little touch of sparkle. rings, earrings, sequins and fake diamonds; gimme gimme mooo.
i've spent the last 10 minutes trying to find you something to use as an example. just picture something huge, tacky and borderline godawful and there you go.
i can't believe i've been writing this blog nearly every day for almost two years, and that people actually read it and enjoy it. it brings me great joy just to write it for myself, so it's even more of a pleasure when other people find joy in it as well. i'm going to keep this going as long as possible because i believe i truly understand the rule to writing a great blog; live the best, most exciting life you can possibly live and describe it word for word. thank you for reading.
btw, i'm aware i spelled recommend wrong in my headline. meh, IT'S MY BLOG.
