Julep Maven | Set Sail


      Today my monthly Julep Maven box came! The candies they include might excite me more...this month was taffy. But onto the polish!


      These three lovely colors were included from their Set Sail collection. You really can't go wrong with red nails, and I'm loving the gold metallic. The subtle blue would be perfect for a summer dress look.

A regular day


      Just a regular Target shopping day. Here with my main bi*ch Barbie. As soon as I saw this life size cut out browsing Target with my girl Alex, I couldn't resist asking her to snap a pic. The Lego man photo bombing the picture makes it all more worthwhile. It's the little things in life, guys. 


      Ive been learning something new almost everyday on my keyboard. Thankfully I was in ballet and percussion growing up. Gotta have 'dat rhythm and beat. I've successfully completed Santeria by Sublime! Now I'm all...I don't practice Santeria. (*dun *dun *ching). I've completed part of City of New Orleans by Arlo Guthrie. I'll be sure to post videos soon!! 

      What have you been up to on your spare time?

Primus songs you must hear

      

      Primus is easiest to be defined as the band that made the South Park theme song. If you've listened to the theme song alone, you catch the distinct sound. Concluding to an undefinable genre. The bands vocalist/bassist Les Claypool once stated he categorizes the band as "Psychedelic polka". It's the type of music you either love or hate. Here's my top most loved Primus songs. 

      My name is Mud

      Tells the story of a blue-collar man and his argument with a friend, who he now has to bury. From the bands 1993 album Pork Soda.
"We had our words, a common spat
So I kissed him upside the cranium with an aluminum baseball bat
My name is Mud"


      Jerry was a Racecar Driver

      Tells stories of two people. One being Jerry, a young Racecar driver who drove drunk into a telephone pole. Also Captain Pierce, a wise retired fireman. From the 1991 album Sailing the Seas of Cheese.
"I'll be a wealthy man when I get
A dime for all the things that
Man taught to me".
      

      Hennepin Crawler
      
      Hennepin Crawler is an example of how naive people are about "Go green! Save our planet!" by using recycled waste materials to build more impractical material goods. Released on the album Green Naugahyde 2011. 
     "She sold sea shells and other things
Down by the old sea shore
When she sold her song to a beer commercial
She looked like a filthy whore - Haha"
.


      Jilly's on smack

      About a girl named Jilly who wanted independence and freedom of her own. So she left home and fell in love with the junkie lifestyle. Released in 2011 on their album Green Naugahyde.
      "Jilly always phoned her mother
Emailed daily to her brother
Til she took a junkie lover
And began to fade".

Amazing neighbor


      As you can read in the above text, my neighbor was nice enough to feed and water the cat when I was out one night. But that wasn't it...


      She cleaned my home! She's a 23-year-old, I'm a 22-year-old girl. We help each other out since we've met. She's been the most amazing neighbor anybody could ask for. 

      What's the last nice thing you did for your neighbor?

First world problems to the max


      5:00am yesterday morning everybody in Michgan was notified of an Amber Alert via smartphones. My first thought, well this sure will help find her...just need more information. 

      Later on that day Facebook is blown up about the inconvenience it was to have woken them up so early on a Saturday. Uhm...I'm sorry what's your problem again, sleeping in? Yeah well somebody's child was abducted. There's far worse things to bitch about than an emergency alert at 5am. 

      6-year-old Hailey was found thanks to the smartphone amber alert. She was abducted by her father. Who threatened to harm himself and his daughter before taking off. Thankfully she's safe now. Click here to keep updates on Amber Alerts around you!

Chalkboard paint


      My buddy and I used Rostoleum chalk board paint on his wall last week. This way when his niece comes by she has something to do in his room. Our first coat was horrible because we didn't mix the paint. Always remember to mix your paint!


      After two coats, we've successfully made a chalkboard! I'm working on a white boarder around it at the moment. 


      Have you ever tried chalkboard or whiteboard paint?
