Rockin’ Out Retro-Style

I am having a really freaking fantastic day. A few days ago, we went over to Mom’s house and she ended up making us stop at a garage sale on the way there. While there, we got me the coolest thing in the whole world. I’ve been looking for something similar for many years now and just have never found a good deal. Finally got me a record player!!

So now, I’m spending the night going through all my boxes of records and listening to all these vinyls. I have to say, this record player is just about the coolest thing I’ve seen. It sounds relatively good, comes with an 8-track deck and the record player is automatic – so I just place the record in there and it starts playing it. It’s beautiful. Makes me feel all cool and retro!

Then, we finally started getting some cleaning done. We had planned to do a bunch yesterday but it ended up being a rather lazy day. I’m still fighting this cold and even though we went and walked out in the freezing cold rain of the day, I came home with tons of energy and ready to clean. Lots of laundry getting done, lots of dishes and for dinner tonight: a huge batch of spaghetti. Should be delicious.

I also, after days of complaining about it, finally found my camera. So that’s plugged in and charging up now. I also recently got nail polish which I was more than happy about. Even made The Boyfriend let me paint his toenails (because I was just in that kind of mood). And it’s nice and quiet in the house because Kenzie’s at a birthday party tonight.

The weather outside may be frightful, but in here, everything is just alright. I love it!

Need to Stop Staying Away

Don’t ask me why, but I’ve barely blogged at all, for so long! This time, only a couple years ago, I blogged every day for the entire month and now…

In the meantime…

I’ve discovered Pinterest, and have been pinning things like they’re going out of style. I probably spend about an hour a day (just for the last couple of days) searching the web for things to pin. It’s a little addicting! I don’t normally save a lot of picture-related things to the web, because it’s normally really hard to go back and view them and share them and remember why you saved a picture. Pinterest makes it super quick and super easy, so all I do is click a button on any website I’m viewing, it will give me some pictures to pick from, and wham! bam! thank you Ma’am!, I’m sharing tons of my favorite stuff.

So I thought that I’d share some of my pins with you:

Love the Look of Latex

All my favorite latex clothing from around the web. Adding more everyday…


See More…

And then I get a little bit girly after the cool clothes…

Hairstyles I Heart

Video tutorials from YouTube on various hairstyles, as well as other hair-related tidbits that may help me with my LONG hair!

I’m totally dying to do this one! Just need an occasion.

INSPIRED: Nail Polish Art

I’ve always loved to paint my nails, it’s the one girly thing I’ve done for years – next to shaving. This shows you some of the cool designs I’ve found, like:


I have a few more boards, which I’ve listed below. Be sure to check them out and if you’d like, I could invite you to Pinterest and we could share our boards. Just visit my contact page and let me know you’d like an invite.
