A Bunch of Stuff is a Happening!

Me and my roomies got a Christmas tree today at the Dollar Tree! It was only $25! wow!! We put up some cute lights and a star that changes colors! yay! While we put the Christmas tree up we at some of my Mommy's Thanksgiving cookies and listened to Dean Martin's Christmas album. It was a good time.

                                                                            *gobble*

BUT earlier today my friends Shayla, Dakotah, Amanda, Ashley and I went to Disney auditions. Only Ashley made it to the final round. She is hopefully going to get a call soon! I really hope that she makes it into the Entertainment department here at Disney! That would be so cool!

Now for a little story:

http://www.dpughphoto.com/images/lizard%20pr%2010805.JPG

Hello...my name is Roberto. I am a Florida lizard. I decided one day that it was too cool outside for me so I decided that I should sneak into Vista Way apartment 3502. I heard that my girl-friend Jessica had been over once before so I thought that it would be a good idea. When I got there I chilled near the window of the living room for goodness know how long! The girls were at the apartment all day...none of them noticed that I was there until Karalyn squealed! She caught me on the window sill...how much time went by I am not sure but what I got out of the whole ordeal was that one of the roommates wanted to kill me by throwing some bleach on me! First of all...that would not have worked (not at first) it would have made my scales burn then make me want to run around. Anway...the other three roomies decided that catching me would be the best bet. After getting a box and a bucket and after Gracie put a bag over her hand they made their move...but I was FAST!! I dodged the bucket and the box and jumped from the window sill to the floor but I wasn't fast enough...Gracie pounced on me like a lion catching its prey with her hands, ran out the door and then threw me outside into the bushes. After landing right next to my girl-friend Jessica we huddled together the rest of the night and planned our next invasion of 3502. THE END.

ps: I'm buying this soon: CLICK ME!!

Nice Work, Bone Daddy - My Life in Halloweens

Watching: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Happy Halloween-a-ween!

I have noticed that most of my Halloweens (Halloween being my 2nd favorite holiday) have been different since I went to college:

1.) From high-school up until Freshman year of college I had been trick-or-treating with my sisters, cousins and THEIR friends (because mine in high-school were apparently too cool to get free candy...what what? :P) In those days I was a Bunny (age 3), Dorothy (various years), a Werewolf (age 10), Kagome from Inu-Yasha (age 16), and a random snake monster guy...(age 12) and a Witch (one of those years), Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas...and a bunch of other things that I can't remember :P

2.) Freshman year of college I trick-or-treated as Groucho Marx but it was kind of lame for various reasons...one being that students from the neighboring high-school would play pranks on the college students and vice-versa. That's when I decided that trick-or-treating was done for me.




3.) Sophomore year of college I worked as a Resident Adviser and always worked on Wednesdays. Well, Halloween was on a Wednesday that night...I will never forget. That was the first time in my whole life that I was not able to celebrate Halloween ON Halloween night. Still, I dressed up as the Bride of Frankenstein, and I handed out candy at my desk and I dealt with puking freshmen. That night I watched The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Creature from the Black Lagoon with my then boy-friend who came to visit me that night.

 

4.) Junior year of college I was studying in England for a few months and we celebrated Halloween in good 'ol Canterbury, England. My costume was last minute but clever...I was a Zombie British school-girl. We pre-gamed at our apartments then we walked to the Jolly Sailor pub and drank snake bites, ate candy and danced on tables. That was a great Halloween fo sho ;)



5.) Senior year of college was AMAZING. My good friend, Kate, came to visit for a whole week and we watched scary movies to the point of a snuggle fest every night for fear of being stabbed to death by psycho, goblin Asians with needles... O_o and other scary things... Did I mention that we slept with my Halloween lights on all night too? We also performed The Rocky Horror Show at my college (I played Janet Weiss) and on Halloween night we went to Albert's to sing and dance karaoke. I was dressed as Stephen King's Carrie.



6.) My sister India and I were able to dress up and go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom and trick-or-treat, eat junk food, scare small children and watch the fireworks, parade and skanky Villians Show. That was an amazing bonding moment for me and my sister that we both will never forget. Now this year for Halloween I will be working again but at least I will be at the Magic Kingdom working the Halloween parades. It will be interesting because I will be seeing all kinds of amazing costumes! yay! and who knows what could happen the whole night...having a different Halloween every year is important I think...if you keep it the same then you'll get bored with it. So, I am glad mine have been different these past few years. Oh yes...and I was a werewolf ;)


HAPPY ALL HALLOW'S EVE!!

Captain EO (featuring George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola and...Mikey Jackson)


So I had a pretty wild day yesterday! I went to Epcot in Disney and celebrated the 15th Food & Wine Festival. It was nice to smell all of the food and see all of the different kinds of drinks that they had. I didn't drink because, well, I simply didn't feel like it plus it was far too expensive. BUT I did have lunch! I went to the Greece booth and got Spanakopita and I went to the Charcuterie & Cheese cart to get some cheese fondue with croutons and roasted peppers. I then proceeded to the Ireland booth to top it off with warm chocolate lava cake with Baily's Irish cream ganache. MMMMMM so good! Afterwords I went to England and sat in the Rose Garden and studied for the GRE as I drank Twinning's Iced Tea and listened to "Hey Jude" play in the background by a live band. I then stopped by France but couldn't stay for very long because I became too nostalgic :( so I moved to Japan where I bought a Little Red Riding Hood stationary set as well as witnessed a wedding proposal at the Japanese Pearl Counter! So kawaii!!
I also decided that I would go on a couple of rides that I hadn't been on in a awhile: Honey, I Shrunk the Audience and Imagination with Figment (which had been changed...for the better, I might add!). When I made my way over there I realized that Honey was gone! It had been replaced by a 1986 experiment created by George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. A 3D science fiction musical starring Michael Jackson - It was called Captain EO.


Wild, right? That's what I thought too! So, I thought, I gotta give this a try! I got in the theater and put on my 3D glasses and noticed that I was surrounded by families with very small kids AND 30-something year old cult followers of this "Captain EO". Ladies and Gentlemen...what you are about to witness is the 3D cult classic that I watched only a few hours ago in Walt Disney's Epcot Center (without the 3D of course). There is no describing this 20 minute film...you just have to watch it yourself:

Part 1


Part 2


OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! I couldn't believe what was happening in front of me! It was The Dark Crystal  meets The Wiz or whatever. I loved it! The next paycheck I get I'm spending my hard earned monies on Captain EO merch.

Love & Peace!

FCKH8 & Planet Smoothie = LOVE

Watching: Kellie and Sean Play Mario Race Car

 Here's a little video that my friend Shanna posted on another one of our friend's facebook:

CLICK ME FOR VIDEO!

I'm so in love with it! Pass it on to your friends if you agree!

---

In other news...the roomies and I have a place we call heaven here in Orlando. It's called Planet Smoothie and it is absolutely amazing! They have the best smoothies ever created. Not too watery and not too thick either. Not only are they full of yummy goodness (whether you are in the mood for something healthy or something calorie-filled) but they also have special "powder" thrown into the mix. This powder can be fiber blast or fat burner or an energy blast or even an immunity blast!! No matter how you are feeling that day you can get a powder blast that can help you through the day. The smoothies also have awesome names such as Yo' Adriane!, Werewolf, Java the Nut, Razmanian Devil, Frozen Goat, Thelma & Louise and Screamsicle. My favorite? The Lunar Lemonade with a fat burner blast. <3 mmmmm!

Love & Peace!

BUGS!!!

Listening to: Love, You Didn't Do Right By Me - Rosemary Clooney

  Hey guys sorry about my update fail :/ I have been busy with work, studying and socializing with my new friends! Speaking of new friends...here is my friend Janice's blog! (Year Of Adventure). Janice has amazing narration and really funny stories! Enjoy!

So I have a lot to cover in the past few...uh....weeks.

First of all I broke my camera :( I was at a club and some how it got smashed...so now I have nothing. Luckily my roomies are generous and they let me borrow their cameras when I go on my little adventures by myself.

Just recently we found a few little buggy-like critters in our apartment at Vista Way. A few weeks ago I found one little flea on my foot. I tried to catch it and drown it...but to no avail. I figured a flea was kinda important to talk about so I let my roomies know that I had found one. Kare was hilarious...

"But I thought fleas were only on animals...we don't have animals," she said.

"Well, fleas don't just hang out on animals," I had said. "They bite humans too."

Kare's eyes widened with disbelief, "They BITE????"

We then got into a huge discussion on what fleas are capable of and just how nasty they are. Kare hyperventilated.  So that was the flea incident (oh and we never found another one after that...) and there was also the cockroach.

Now, I wasn't here for the this one but I believe this is how it went down: Last week Kellie and Kare were sitting in the living room when they saw a huge black...thing...crawling around in the kitchen. Kellie yelp and Kare kept yelling "Kill it! Kill it!" but the cockroach got away. Kare was so afraid that the little guy would come back (and with friends) that she ran to the store and bought Roach Killer. After spraying the whole kitchen as well as outside our door, Kare asked if it would actually kill the roach. Bis and I looked at the picture advertised on the Roach Killer can:

 "That bug on the can looks dead..." I said. "I think it will kill them."

Oh yes, and I told you that Kare also sprayed outside, yes? well, Florida is infested with Love Bugs humping each other all over the place and after she had sprayed and we opened our front door *Psycho Music* :O DEAD LOVE BUGS EVERYWHERE!!! It was a good 'ol graveyard outside our front door. "I feel like I have to say a prayer every time I walk out here," Kare said.

More adventures soon, guys! Love and Peace!

SO PROUD

Listening to: Cocorosie - Animals

Okay...so I have always had this weird issue with my weight...I have never been fully comfortable in my own skin. Now, on the other hand, is a different story. From all of the healthy eating habits and the walking that I have been doing lately here in Disney I have shed a few...and I feel great! I feel good about myself now and more importantly, I feel better on the inside :)


Sooo, whoooohoooo <3

Parade Control & Turnstiles!

Watching: A CrAzY commercial about...Snuggies? O_o


Sooooo yesterday at work was somewhat hilarious....well, it is now at least. I wasn't feeling too great yesterday for reasons not unknown to me (girly stuff ya know). So I was prepared for it and also prepared for any situations that would happen while in WDW (or so I thought).

Okay, to start...I have 2 costumes. One is for turnstiles at the front gate of the MK and that costume is a large, striped shirt with orange, pink and light blue in it and it comes with light blue...shorts? I guess you can call them shorts. Then there is the parade control uniform or "PAC" as we call it. The PAC uniform consists of a pair of navy blue pants and vest and a white short sleeve shirt with a weird little dog-eared tie in front. Well, there are some days when you are working both jobs in the same day. I had heard different ways on what to do: wear one outfit and then change later, wear one outfit the whole day, wear the outfit that fits the job you work the most hours in that day but make sure you wear the navy one for the nighttime parades...yadda yadda yadda!!

So, I went with my instinct and I wore the light blue striped one and brought the navy blue one with me. After the turnstiles (which I'm still surprised people still don't know how to use) I went to my coordinator and asked when she wanted me to change. "The events that followed are kind of a blur to me...she began to explain something like..."you should have just worn your PAC outfit/why didn't you know that? and work at the exit right now and I will type in a task for you then that will give you time to change and if you are late to the PAC meeting I will know where you are." I was really, very confused. Task? What? I began to ask her what that meant (I just wanted to do the right thing) and she said the exact same thing...but slower...like I was stupid!! :-/ whatever...so I just did what she asked me and left to change when I found it appropriate. I was a little late for the PAC meeting but was able to get there in time for my assignment: "Castle 1".
      The "Castle 1" assignment means that my position was right in front of Cinderella's Castle and all I really had to do was play "Mickey Says" (Simon) with the kids until it was time to get ready for the parade. Suddenly, it started to DOWN POUR. It was awful because I did not have a poncho! I kept a positive attitude and tried to let guests know that we will have an announcement whether or not the parade would continue. Finally, the announcement came on throughout the park and all it said was that the parade had been "delayed" ! I was shocked! And then it started to thunder and lightening...still, the parade was just "delayed". Finally, about 30 minutes later...the parade (which was an electric light parade) was finally canceled. I was soaked to the bone and shivering. I already had a cold...so that was unfortunate. I worked the exit until I was allowed to leave and I was so happy that I had packed a change of clothes...except my underwear was wet...so I had the most attractive marks on my body :-/
I also had a bunch of dry costumes that I had picked up earlier that day. So I had to not only carry back my wet clothes (including my wet sneakers) but I also had to carry back a stack of dry costumes! Ug. When I was finally able to get on the bus back to my apartment, the bus was full :( so I was going to have to sit on the wet floor BUT my very good friend Mike from good 'ol Cazenovia was there and said that I could have his seat! :D He sat almost right behind me with another friend on the edge of the seat. I sat in Mike's seat and right next to his roommate...who was a really sweet guy! I felt bad because while we were talking I couldn't remember why I liked modern British Literature.... *blush* (Orwell and Doyle!!!!) *cough* anyway...I got home at 12:00am and made myself foods and talked with my roomie Alee for about two hours and watched Alien 3.

Sigh...it was a very interesting night.

2 Weeks in Yensid

Watching: The Office

(note: code words to be on the efas edis) ;-)

So I have been in Yensid for approximately 2 weeks. There have been many ups but there have also been the occasional downs. All in all though, Yensid is definitely the happiest place on earth for a reason. The people who work here are the heart, soul and backbone of this company. I don't think it would be as successful as this if it weren't for the service that we are taught to give. Seriously, our classes and trainers have to teach us how to be happy...

Now, I am normally a "happy" person...so when they told us certain things like, "wave to people" or "smile" or "say, 'You're welcome'" or "look people in the eye when they are speaking to you" it all sounded very, I don't know...obvious(?) to me. That's probably why I hit it off with my Main Gate trainer, Pattie so well. Let me explain Pattie before I go any further:

[PS: some Yensid-like spoilers below...this might ruin the magic for some little ones!]

Pattie is a short, thin and wrinkly 70 year old (71 in a few days) woman. She is from New Orleans, LA originally and was most certainly a Southern Belle at one point in her life. She has a son who is going to school to become an artist and she has a daughter who is a lawyer for Congressmen at the White House (she almost served President Obama...but he chose someone else I guess). Pattie has been working for Yensid Dlrow for 5 years and has been a trainer for 2 years. She is so good apparently, that they are sending her all over the world (most recently Hawaii) to train people into becoming great Yensid Cast Members (Cast Members = employees in Yensid language). I was fortunate enough to have her one-on-one as my trainer. Pattie is a heavy smoker by the way...so on our 10 minute breaks we would have during training she and I would take them backstage, behind the walls of the MK. Oddly enough, the smoking area is right next to the doors to where the parade comes through so many of the actors/dancers sit there and smoke as well. It was cool to talk with most of them about their experiences but half the time they are on their phones texting...so that's when I turn to Pattie and hear stories about the old South and raccoon hunting and whatever else.

Anyway, Pattie is great and very informal about the history of Yensid.

I love my job. When I am not telling silly tourists how to place their finger on the biometrics scanner or stopping foreigners from stealing others tickets OR keeping other Yensid Cast Members from sneaking people in...(whew!) I am giving out Cinderella stickers to little girls who are coming to the MK for the first time, I am giving high-fours ;-) to little boys dressed as pirates while I wear my Mickey glove at the exit, I am sprinkling pixie dust on kids who are having a hard day...or to a little girl who was just adopted from another country and her new parents are bringing her to the MK (she was so cute by the way). Some of my fellow Cast Members (but most certainly not all) are a little...testy...but try to look over them and focus on my goals for the day. Tomorrow I start training for  Parade Control then I will be an official Yensid Cast Member.

I love going into the Parks for free too! I never thought it would be so much fun to walk around by yourself! I've been having a great time finding presents for everyone. It's also nice because I can just play all day! Go on rides, shop and lose weight. Yup. I went down one pant size since I've been here. It's kind of really amazing ;-) and I cannot stress enough how awesome my roomies are. They are simply the best. Some of us went to Daytona Beach for the day and just chilled. We had a blast swimming in the ocean and talking about our jobs. <3

Well, that's all for now! TTFN! Ta ta for now!

Finally in Disney! + A message to my Best Friends.

Talking with my new roomie, Kellie.

Heya friends!

I am finally living in Orlando, Florida and working for the great Walt Disney (God rest his soul :P). So far it has been a great few days (two to be exact) and I have met my roomies in the process. They are really, very nice and I adore them completely.
Kellie is from Colorado and is interested in doing the Professional Disney Internship in the spring next year just like I am. She wants to be a special event planer. Arielle is from New Orleans and would like to work with Hospitality in the future (she is also an avid tea drinker like me!). Bis is from Massachusetts and is a little bit like me in weird ways (I can't even really explain it...we just get each other! We must have known each other in a past life). Allie (pronounced "Ah-lee") is from Puerto Rico and was recently married to a Marine who is being stationed in Texas. She joined the Disney Program so that it would give her something positive to do while he was away. Karaline is from Connecticut and is sort of the supplier of the apartment (she bought most of the cleaning products, food and wine for the place! whoa!). All and all we get along swimmingly (of course it has only been two days...but i have high hopes for us!).
I do miss all of my friends and family from home...it has been hard for me to figure out my feelings about certain things in life and accomplishes that I want to make. I sort of discovered that there was this weird hole in my heart that I kept trying to fill, not knowing how to do so. Luckily, my church's convocation in L.A. helped me when a nun giving a talk said that when she lost someone she was very, very fond of (she didn't mention whether it was a lover, friend or family member or whether it was from death or a fickle heart) before she became a nun, she cried and cried for days. Finally, she meditated and prayed and asked God what she should do. She still had all of this love to give and now that that person was gone she had no one to give it to. Then she said that she felt this loving voice come to her and say, "Give that love to Me." So, since then that is what I have been trying to do.

This summer was a bit sad for me. I had already left my best friends and I knew that I would be leaving my family soon. I had a job but it didn't keep me as busy as I had hoped and I was able to see some friends sometimes but not as much as I really wanted. I wanted a career. I wanted to make people happy and I wanted to love someone. More importantly, I wanted someone to love me the same way in return. And you know what? I am so lucky that I have such good friends (you all know who you are) who do just THAT for me: love me like I love them. The ones that don't leave me in the dust and although I always knew that you were (and still are) there for me...I don't think I appreciated it as much as I do now. So, I'm just going to say: to all of you, I love you and miss you so much. You are a part of my family and I never want to lose you...you are too cool and too awesome. You guys and God fill that hole in my heart for me...you make up for all the heartaches and heartbreaks that I've had. That is so important to me. Thanks, yo ;)

I will have pictures and updates asap! Love & Peace <3

.:Adam LOVES Gaga:.

Watching: The Night Listener

So my friend Mike and I decided to do Battle of the Airbands at our college this year. He had done it three times before and I had never done it (and I had only seen it once freshman year). I actually was not going to do it but the woman (Theresa) who was putting it together convinced me otherwise. "I don't think I'm going to do it," I said. "Well," she said. "If you were going to perform what would you do?" I thought for a moment, got really excited and then said, "Adam Lambert." Theresa looked at me for a second and then said, "Okay, I'll put you down for Adam Lambert." So that was it! Mike and a mutal friend of ours had already signed up and wanted to do Beyonce and Lady G for "Telephone." When they heard I was doing it they were happy! But then we found out that our friend couldn't do it because she was in our college's musical (this was 4 days before the show). Mike came to me and said that he didn't want to perform alone and asked if I did it with him. I said that was fine as long as I was still Adam Lambert. He was cool, as long as he was still Lady Gaga. Desperately, Mike and I searched the interwebs for a Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert re-mix. Apparently, people don't realize that Lady G and Adam are BFFs and that their music could easily mix. So, Mike attempted to make one himself. He remixed "Fever" and Bad Romance" ("Fever" was written by Lady Gaga) and it wasn't the greatest but it was way better than nothing. Sadly, the next day when I went to make a CD of the song - I realized that Mike hadn't saved it. So we were left with the original songs on one track. I burned the songs as one and just went on from there. Mike and I didn't really know what to do. All we knew was that my song was first. I told him that I didn't mind performing my song alone so when his song started, he could join me on stage. Outfits? Mike's closet (I love having a gay boyfriend! ^o^). Make-up? Kinney Drugs. Wigs? My little sisters. Choreography? None. We literally had NOTHING. Both of us are busy busy seniors and did not have time to come up with cool dance moves in 3 days. "We'll be fine," Mike said. "We'll just wing it!" Uggggg!!!

Then came the night of the show. I couldn't believe it. All of the practicing that we did was lame. I wasn't feeling Lambert and Mike wasn't really feeling Gaga. We needed something to save us, but what? "Let's throw candy into the audience! That's a nice crowd pleaser!"...Yup, this was going to be interesting.

Then, our song started...the intense begining of "Fever" echoed through the gym. I was so nervous and Mike was too. Then, I walked through the curtains, onto the stage, and then...this:


WTF??? Where did those fan girls come from (I asked friends to come to the stage and they actually did! *happy tears* I love them all!!!)? Where did those DANCE MOVES come from? Crowd cheering? Happy judges? Crawling on the floor? JUMPING OFF THE STAGE? I was literally a different person (I was Adam!). And Mike...oh that man was born in heels and a tutu. I adore him so. He was Gaga and he was great!!!!!! At the end of the show all of the contestants went on the stage and the host listed the people that placed. And who do you think got first?? OMG we literally pulled that performance out of our asses. It was amazing, hott and so much fun. LOVE & PEACE.

no one can stare at the wall as good as you my baby doll

Listening to: Amanda Palmer - The Point of It All

Today was barefoot day! Well, that's not what it was really called (it's actually One Day Without Shoes) but today a couple of kids on campus, including myself, didn't wear shoes all day to create awareness for children & adults who cannot afford shoes. We all got crazy stares and some people yelled at us for being "gross" and wondered "what happens if you step on glass?" Tianna had a pretty great come-back: "What about all of the children in the world who cannot afford shoes and step on glass, get infections and have their legs amputated?" Hahaha, she held it in though. My Mom was one of the people who told me to be careful of germs and foot warts (yikes!) but then you have to think, these kids and adults who don't have shoes have a 99.9% more chance of getting foot diseases and warts than I do for just having one day without shoes. It's so sad :( At any rate..I plan on SCRUBING my feet vigorously tonight when I shower.


PS: My favorite movie, book and song have been updated for the month of April <3

The Novel Tee ^o^!

Watching: NCIS

So I am leaving for New York City tonight at midnight (romantic, no?) so I have been looking at Tim Burton's MoMA website (I'm so excited!!) and looking at lookbook.nu as well as modcloth for shopping afterwards. While looking I found some great tees from modcloth that just blew my mind! First of all, check this out:



 Okay, I actually HAVE this picture as a poster hanging on my wall in my dorm room...I haven't seen this graph anywhere else! Where did I buy the poster? Oh, the bookstore of the college I went to in Canterbury, England...that's all. So neat! Then of course, I'm in love with this one just because I love the book AND the movie:


<3 <3 <3 I want this in my life! Plus, I am hoping to buy this someday before summer time!




Off to NYC! Love & Peace!

I just watched one of my favorite anime movies with mt friends Tianna and Beth: Perfect Blue. I first watched it with my friend Liz almost 3 years ago! It's such an amazing movie (and one of the best anime movies ever made). I have talked about it before on my blog but I don't think I've shown clips or anything...here is an AMV (anime music video) with a song by one of my favorite bands: Tegan and Sara.



SO GOOD!

The next one that we are going to watch is my favorite one by Satoshi Kon (the director of Perfect Blue) PAPRIKA!!



Paprika also has one of the best opening credits of any movie (anime or not!).

PS: I am more than just REALLY EXCITED about this!!!

RIFFTRAX - NEW MOON

3/3/10

Scissorhands, Black Blazers and Tea for Two

Listening to: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - The Sweets

Spring Break officially starts tomorrow at 12:30pm! whooohoo! I am going to live it up by watching NCIS like it's nobody's business and drink tea til the cows come home! So excited! (oh yeah...and work on senior project...)

The play is finally over and I am very depressed. I miss seeing my theatre friends every night :( I ate lunch with my friend Jill (who directed the play) and she said that after looking at the pictures of the play on facebook, she had to go take a long walk by herself around town. I told her that that's a good way to relieve heartache...I just cry hysterically until there's nothing left.

So, recently I have been dying to buy new clothes...but it just feels like everything is so freakin expensive, especially the new product that I've been drooling over: The Black Blazer.


 

I want one sooooo gooooood.
I am trying to build my wardrobe to what I want it to be like, you know, for reals. I don't like to wear skirts or dresses on a regular basis...I just don't. But with the right shoes, skinny jeans and jacket I think I can make my ideal style work. :)

My friend Shanna showed me this today and had me wishing I had went to Salt Lake City for college :P

It looks so amazing! We need something like that in Central New York!

Here are some pictures from The Rockstar Diaries blog:



(I want this is my life!)

It reminds me of a place called Boho in Canterbury, England that the girls and I used to go to practically everyday. I miss it so ;-(
