(B)OOTD: Purple for my Paw




New sweater!: LYS- $25

Handbag/leggins: Bongo-$6..yes on clearance!

Bike necklace: One of my most fav Etsy shops!

Today would have been my dear old Dad’s 51st Birthday, and what seems like half my life without him here, it was by far the easiest one in 7 years. The Hubb brought home some of his favorite roses, and a cupcake to light as a little memorial;


Purple being his favorite color(he always did want a Purple electric Bass..), and seeing how I snagged a new purple sweater, handbag and a purple eye shadow(in the most AMAZING belated bday package ever!) I wore all the purple I had for todays bike ride


Big Thanks to my babe Tesko for the awesome TokiDoki eye shadow! Killer Candy it is<3 A B and the F post on that soon!


We are eccentrics..and are well aware of this fact.


After scoring some presidents day sale priced crap, we head home. Nothing special, nothing big..but its what dad liked to do.

A very, merry UN-Vday


The Hubb and I don’t really believe in the Hallmark hype that Valentines Day has become, you don’t need one day to shower your loved ones with flowers and chocolate. For those lucky enough to have a man who does romantic things all year long, V-day can be…off-putting. What do you do on the day, when everyone else is out to dinner? Get dressed up in pretty things, head to Greenwich Village, and get a new piercing…..OF COURSE!


There was two OOTD’s actually..since we went out the eve of, and the day of V-day



V-day eve, Hubb and I enjoy a burrito from this is my idea of a dinner-date.!


I love how unconventional we are <3

The very next day, we head back downtown and the first stop is Unimax Supply…if your big on the tattoo/piercing/body modification scene; YOU KNOW THIS PLACE!



total candid shot..jesus my legs look THAT strong?

Since we were already in the neighborhood, we drop in our old shop and I decide it’s time for a piercing!


I’ve been in this chair countless times..but Tino never minds!


Totally happy with my bling, Hubb and I decide it was warm enough for a Texas-sized frozen drink :)


took this time to get a shot of the bling and play with Instagram..why the Eff haven’t I had this in my life till now?!

We walk around the LES(buzzed as hell) and just took in our most favorite of neighborhoods;

I may not agree with it, but I love the colors of V-day<3




I love New York City…born and raised, so I’m biased, but this really is the greatest city on Earth. People from all walks of life, all kinds of styles, bustling and scurrying trying to keep their busybusy schedules…its great to watch, when your not the one in a hurry :p

I hope you all who celebrates had a love-filled V-day, and here’s to hoping no one has any new cavities!

Oh yes, it’s ladies night!


Know what’s kinda sad? I don’t remember my last girls night. Honestly. I’ve been consumed by other things, I suppose..but that’s not a good excuse! So after a long-awaited return to the night-life, Friday was the day to step on out!


My BOOTD(bike outfit of the day) pretty much are things you’ve seen before


Sandy D. on the 6 <3

Being the city-dweller I am, I often take my bike on the train. It’s an easy way to get away from your neighborhood, and tour all that the other four boroughs have to offer! Also $2.50 for a mini-getaway ‘aint too damn shabby :) Regardless of that, IT’S A PAIN IN THE ASS!!! And my long-time, back-to-biking, babe M found that out today!


Killin the “bike on train” strategy!


WITH them boots…haaaaawt

We take the 5 train to Borough Hall in Brooklyn, which is really the only area of BK I’m familiar with, and map out our bike ride from there to the event. We took the Dean Street Lane all the way there!


yes, we’re going the right way!


only one good panda was taken :/

After about a half hour of pedaling, we arrive, park our bikes, and headed inside this quaint total-DIY studio!


A little background on the straight awesomeness going on here:

Sue Rock is an amazingly generous and wonderful person who is doing something something so noble for the community-

Sue Rock Originals is an eco-fashion brand of "back to basics" separates which are flattering to every figure! Be a Sue Rock Original! Sue Rock Originals is a Brooklyn based green clothing line available at high end boutiques throughout the New York area.

There are classes on knitting, crocheting, sewing your own clothes all for women who were victims of domestic abuse, as well as the general public. But todays Ladies night was surrounded by sorting through BAAAAAAAAGS of bras/undies/nighties(ALL DONATED AND NEW!) in preparation for a lingerie sale coming up!


Dude…this wasn’t even 1/4th of the donations….

Sorting bras by number and size gets a girl thinkin’..women are more obsessed with boobies than men! Think about it…Aren’t you always looking at your own, seeing if they look good? Looking at other women's, in comparison? YEP YOU DO ;) Anyhoo, these were brand new underroos, either samples or completely tagged so its not like these donations were taken from just anybody. Besides helping a great cause, the night was filled with food, wine, and great people! Every woman there was just beautiful, inside and out!


O where to start?


how adorbs is Jess? GAH!




Jess, PJ, and Myrna <3 Finally got meet PJ, she’s been my friend on Facebook for the longest!

It was really good for my be helping a cause and hanging out with such cool women. It was just what I needed! Never again will so much time pass before another girls-only event! If you’d like to help out this fab place do some fab things and are a New Yorker here is the address:

1069 Bergen Street
between Nostrand and Rogers Avenues
Crown Heights North
Brooklyn, NY

Lingerie isn’t the only thing offered here either…but you wouldn’t know that by looking at what I scored for 20 bucks!



Mina-chan even likes what I scored :)

Other greatness I MUST mention:


I took part in the “I Stand against Weight Bullying” Campaign by author Marilyn Wann(of FAT!SO?) This is been a HUGE reaction to the Georgia’s fat-shaming ads:


Regardless of where you personally stand, I took part of this as the little girl growing up being teased and ridiculed back in school, who is standing up for herself and others like her. We are all people, and need to be treated as such…my sister-in-ink Melanie knows the deal. I cannot be more proud to have had this made and to be part of the backlash and revolt against this “Strong 4 life” BULLSHIT!


health, wealth and love at every size
