Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat

16 May

I’ve heard from allll over that this Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat is the total cat’s MEOW. And it really does live up to all the hype!! I can seriously paint my nails in the fab color of my choice… and about two minutes later my nails are ready for the top coat to be applied!! It goes on nice and smooth… is totally streak free and best of all? In a HOT minute your new manicure is set and ready to go!! I’ll admit, I’m rough on my nails. I spend my days picking stickers, opening boxes, and being an all around badass. But this top coat will give me AT LEAST a week of awesome nails. Thank you Sally Hansen, thank you!!

Alabama Shakes :: Always Alright

14 May

(source)

I am so love the Alabama Shakes. The affair started about a year ago and we’ve been going strong ever since. They were one of the acts I was most excited about seeing at Bonnaroo last year and I swear seeing them, in that atmosphere was pretty perfect. I knew they would blow up… and sure enough, I was right. Last summer they hit the festival circuit pretty heavy and now we’re all waiting on a new album. But in the mean time… here’s a rad tune that I discovered via a girls movie night!

The Alabama Shakes :: Always Alright

Well you come up stairs in the night to talk
Stay a little while then you do a little walk on home

I hear you downstairs smoking cigarettes, I hear your talking shit
Cuz you aint got nothing to talk about at all

Well you take me to the party you got me alone
Said you wanna feel good cuz you feel like your gonna explode

I don’t care I can’t pay attention, I don’t give a fuck about your
attention at all

Pass me the whiskey, pass me the gin
Pass me whatever that’s going to let me in?

Well I don’t care if it’s 7 in the mornin’
For all I care it could be the second comin’

You said you couldn’t take it anymore
You can’t live like this, it’s a really big deal

I don’t care I can’t pay attention, I don’t give a fuck about your
attention at all

Alright

We’re always alright

We’re alright

We’re always alright

We’re always

We’re always alright
Alright
We’re ready
Alright

Third Man Records

7 May

Anytime I travel to Nashville I always try to stop into the mecca of record stores… Third Man Records. It’s no secret that Jack White is my rock and roll god… so it’s like going to church. I haven’t been legit record shopping in ages and had a small TMR shopping list going. Sadly, I was only able to grab the Shovels & Rope single… so the Brittany Howard 7in. will have to wait. Boooo. They were even sold out of Jack White’s solo album Blunderbuss (No!! I still don’t have it on vinyl yet)!! I totally understand that the demand must be high but I really couldn’t believe they didn’t have a single one at the store. Oh well!! Hopefully next time!! I still walked out a happy girl!!

Ooooo Black Keys!!

5 May

black keys

A couple of days ago me and mine traveled to the great city of Nashville, in the name of seeing the Black Keys up close and personal!! I’ve seen them a couple of times now via Bonnaroo but I was in the back… and seeing a show I’m really into from the back is NOT my idea of a good time. But it’s Bonnaroo… and that’s just how it goes. So when Black Keys tickets went on a sale a few months ago I knew I wanted to snag a couple of GA tickets, so I’d have the chance to be up close. And close we were!! Timing really was on our side!! We walked into Bridgestone Arena around 7:30, got beers and merch, and then headed to the pit. We walked up right up front to what I would consider THIRD ROW and posted up! Luckily the crowd around us was pretty awesome and I had the freedom to get my groove on…. those Black Keys make me dancey in my pantsy!! Here’s the setlist, the show was ROCKIN’. These guys really know how to make a two piece band fill an arena full of people!!

True American :: New Girl Style

22 Feb

If you watch the New Girl, you know exactly what I’m talking about… that game where they chug beers and climb all over everything. Sounds like fine, right?!

(source)

Game prep:

Arrange the cans of beer around the bottle of rum. The cans are Pawns of the Secret Order, the rum is the King, and the arrangement is called the Castle.

Decide on 4 Zones, and arrange platforms ( chairs, buckets, anything ) in patterns through them. The 5th Zone is the Zone with the castle. You must follow the chair path through the zones.

You can do team play or free for all play. If you choose free for all, chanting is then done in a set layer rotation. If you choose team play, only one person on your team has to reach the finish. Chanting in teams is done team rotation, with team members swapping the chant.

To choose teams, count down from 3, and on 0 raise your right hand to your forehead, displaying a number from 1 to 5. Anyone with the same number is on your team.

To start, someone shotguns a beer. This person chants first.

Gameplay:

Someone yells “1, 2, 3, 4 JFK”. Everyone else yells “FDR”, drinks, and gets off the floor. The floor is now lava. Stepping into it causes you to lose. You can start at the beginning of the Zone you are in, or choose to sit out. If you choose to sit out, you start over from Zone 1 if you decide to rejoin.

If everyone is standing, no one is drinking or moving, the player who is next to chant may chant the name of 2 presidents. If you know something in common between the 2, you may chant it back and drink ( an example would be chanting “Abe Lincoln, George Washington” and having everyone yell back “Cherry tree”. Anyone who yelled back can now drink ). If you don’t know anything in common, you don’t get to drink. The chanter always drinks.

Players can also chant “1, 2, 3”. If this happens, do the number selection again. If your number is alone, you get to drink and move forward. If your number has partners, you don’t drink or move.

The third option is chanting “JFK” and everyone else chants “FDR” and drinks. No moving forward, unless you finish your drink.

You also get to move forward when you finish your drink.

Empty cans are all tossed to the same Zone. This is to keep the area somewhat clean. If someone throws a can into the wrong Zone, go back to the beginning of the Zone that player is in. You can use a bin as a target. Cans do NOT have to go in.

If you reach the King, you have to take a drink from the King to win. If you can’t, go back to the beginning of your Zone.

If you don’t know presidents well, you can name any two things.

If you move or drink when you’re not supposed to, you go back to the beginning of the Zone you’re in.

Players are encouraged to lie to each other. Good luck and have fun.

Lyric Love :: Blue Jeans

19 Jul

Lana Del Rey makes me want to start wearing false eyelashes on the reg. Some would call her a hack… a product of the over produced music scene. I mean, just look at her lips. But nonetheless, I love her. I love her style and I want her hair for my very own!! Plus, I think her voice is quite haunting… and I like that. So here’s one of my favorites from her.

blue jeans, white shirt
walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
it was like James Dean, for sure
you so fresh to death & sick as ca-cancer
you were sorta punk rock, i grew up on hip hop
but you fit me better than my favorite sweater, and i know
that love is mean, and love hurts
but I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

i will love you till the end of time
i would wait a million years
promise you’ll remember that you’re mine
baby can you see through the tears?
love you more
than those bitches before
say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
i will love you till the end of time

big dreams, gangster
said you had to leave to start your life over
i was like: “no please, stay here,”
we don’t need no money we can make it all work
but he headed out on Sunday, said he’d come home Monday
i stayed up waitin’, anticipatin’ and pacin’ but he was
chasing paper
“caught up in the game” that was the last i heard

i will love you till the end of time
i would wait a million years
promise you’ll remember that you’re mine
baby can you see through the tears?
love you more
than those bitches before
say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
i will love you till the end of time

you went out every night
and baby that’s alright
i told you that no matter what you did i’d be by your side
cause i’ma ride or die
whether you fail or fly
Well shit, at least you tried.
but when you walked out that door, a piece of me died
i told you i wanted more-but that not what I had in mind
i just want it like before
we were dancin’ all night
then they took you away- stole you out of my life
you just need to remember…

i will love you till the end of time
i would wait a million years
promise you’ll remember that you’re mine
baby can you see through the tears?
love you more
than those bitches before
say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
i will love you till the end of time
