back to back

Just had to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse. Her music was fantastic and it's absolutely tragic that she died so young. I really thought she was on her way to a comeback this year.

How Do I Look? is the best makeover show on television. Beloved hostess, makeup artist, fashion expert, actress, and TV personality. I've been following this show for forever and even though I enjoyed Finola Hughes as host, Jeannie Mai has been an excellent replacement.

late to the party, as usual

I think first saw these feather hair extensions on Lucy Hales character Aria on Pretty Little Liars a few episodes back. I'm sure they've been out for a awhile and I'm way behind the trend. I think they're a bit kooky, but still pretty cute if you like to rock the boho-chic, artsy thing. I love Aria's sense of fashion (she's second to Spencer) so I think it works very nicely on her. I just hope this doesn't become tacky and overdone.
I think the natural looking one's look much prettier.
If you want a hot pink feather in your hair, just buy a hot pink hair extension.

oh, so very

The  best worst 80's  movie has got to be Heathers. I've always loved the outrageously wicked black comedy and it's one of those movies you just have to see.

Hmph. I've been contemplating this for a while but I've finally made a decision. I've had the same music library since I turn thirteen and got my first iPod (three whole years ago). Now here I am sixteen with a brand spanking new (used) iPhone 3G and I still haven't bothered to get rid of incredibly strange mix of gangsta rap and screamo alternative that I was so in love with back in seventh grade. I'm a complete pack rat ( seriously I've still got my Chuck Taylor's from fifth grade).

So now I'm simultaneously typing this and deleting all the trashy tunes I don't listen to. Over 3,500 songs and I listen to the same eighteen repeatedly. Replacing Tyga, My Chemical Romance and Scary Kids Scaring Kids will be my new indie-folk favourites: Florence + the machine, Arctic Monkeys, Band of Horses, and Duffy.

Since music is the theme of the day, I ought to mention all the music events I'm dying to attend this summer.
1) Lollapalooza of course, is number one. It's hosted by founder Perry Ferrel of Jane's Addiction in Chicago for three days and I've always wanted to go.
2) The iTunes Music Festival which is currently going on in London and will continue until the 31st.
3) Warped Tour which is a traveling show and the bands go city to city performing every year. The next show is only a few hours from where I live so this one might actually happen (!).
