Making A Calendar – Shooting the Sh** Ed.

Lyndsey and I goofing off while getting ready for our shot. Makeup by Veronica Hertado.

You can plan, schedule, plan, and plan some more, but inevitably, there is a huge possibility that everything could get screwed up. But it’s those moments when I’m finding myself wanting to bang my head on the wall for leaving a motorcycle jacket stuck inside an unopened store during themotorcycle shoot, us cramming two shoots in 13 minutes, even our sisterly fight, I look back on most endearingly with wonder and amazement that it all worked out. And luckily, things always work out for us – really, they do. I can’t explain it. Maybe because I didn’t have to take chaos theory. Thank you English major. Anyway, I’m happy to report that everyone survived, the motorcycle jacket made it in the shot, and the 13 minutes turned into and hour and a half. Thank you universe, and thank you A Couture Cause team for not murdering me (yet *gulp*)

Privacy Pussy Control

Cats and the internet, they were made for each other, better than any other coupling that my really smart friend I’m sitting with and I can think of. But what happens when the anonymity of the internet becomes a physical location?

An Idea For Couples With Pets

Image from Colour Me Good Ryan Gosling, a Ryan Gosling coloring book.

In a perfect world there would be a statement you could make that would incapsulate the love you have for your partner and their pet. Your boyfriend being Ryan Gosling and you being Eva Mendez. Then this is your perfect world, because Ryan effing Gosling wore a necklace with the name of his girlfriend’s dog on it. It’s the most romantic gesture of all time, sending exchanged class rings and letter jackets everywhere straight to the toilet.

Can $$$ Buy Happiness?


Maybe, maybe not, perhaps both, but it can buy expedited shipping. I wrote recently that I’ve been contemplating happiness, and with that I’ve decide to spend my money where it matters. We all know that a majority of that is shoes, clothes, rent, and wine, but it’s the little things that I’ve been trying to loosen my tight-wad (cheap a$$) grip on. Now, I don’t suggest blowing your entire wad on something superfluous only to stress out about making ends meet, but a little splurge can make a difference. Besides, I’ve made it a point to have a good time making money, spending it shouldn’t be that hard.

Mule vs Mule


I found the Wikipedia page a very interesting and insightful source, even with the 90’s and Jenny McCartney being skipped over. Also, who knew Marilyn would be saving reputations from scandal? Like I said, informative.

“Mule (shoe)

A pair of red mules (side)
Mule, a French word, is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height – from flat to high. The style is predominantly (but not exclusively) worn by women.[citation needed]

The term derives from the Ancient Roman mulleus calceus a red or purple shoe worn by the three highest magistrates, although there is little indication of any structural resemblance.


High-heeled mules were a popular indoor shoe style of the 18th century, influenced by the patten, a backless overshoe of the 16th century. By the early twentieth century, mules were often associated with prostitutes.

In the early 1950s, Marilyn Monroe popularized the shoe and helped break its poor reputation.

Mules experienced some popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s, and were seen in 1970s and early 1980s almost exclusively in the form of open-back Scandinavian clogs, but then re-emerged in the late 1990s, especially in its open-toed form (the “slide”), and began to dominate the shoe market for women.”

Mid Year Resolutions

Image from Vaughn Fender.

I’m very good at not making resolutions – not on New Year’s, not ever. In fact, I don’t think much of vocalizing goals, much to the dismay of my employers, running buddies, project partners, etc.
That’s not to say that I’m lazy but I’m totally ok within an undefined concept of growing. Thus I’m lacking the habit of organizing, visualizing, and strategizing my ideas I have made lists on two different occasions: grocery lists, often, and another time I made a list of potential dates. Both circumstances worked out fantastically; I manage to get my household necessities every time from shopping lists and I got a boyfriend from my potential date list, so, list and goal making therefore works.
