Guilty Pleasure: Skins UK

I feel like I'm always years behind when it comes to watching tv shows.  I didn't catch on to the Office until Season 6, I watched Six Feet Under a year after all the DVDs were released and started obsessing about Mad Men only a few months ago.  It seems to me that if you can avoid all spoilers then waiting until a show has gone to DVD or is available online is a fantastic thing because you can zip through all the episodes and not have to wait a whole week for the next one.  My latest endeavor has become Skins UK.  After hearing all the hype about MTVs version, I figured I might as well give the UK version a chance.  I some how managed to get hooked and I'm just finishing up the third season, it's quite wonderful.  If you ever watch Degrassi, then I think you will love this!

Cut Along the Dotted Line

Did you ever try to cut your own hair when you were young?  I'm pretty sure most of us have rocked the 2 inch bangs when we were about 7 years old and wanted to take our hair into our own hands.  I guess I had one of those moments today because I decided I wanted shorter hair and just had to do it myself.  I think it looks pretty decent as long as I keep it a little disheveled so that you can't see just how uneven it is.  My hair cutting experience is what inspired this outfit today.  My navy striped top was originally a turtle neck that I cut up and the high waisty shorts were originally shorts.  I also threw on my gold scissors broach, strung on a chain here.  I guess I'm not afraid of taking scissors to anything and I figured why not go short for summer?

Under the Weather

To say that someone is "under the weather" is to say that they are not feeling very well. Example: "What's wrong?" Answer: "I'm a bit under the weather." They probably have a simple cold or flu which will go away quickly. Example: "It's nothing serious; I'm just a bit under the weather." Being "under the weather" reminds us that a quick change in the weather can affect our health and the way we feel.
Bears get sick too.

More from SXSW

Thursday through Sunday (and a little on Monday too) we ran around downtown looking or free shows and free beer.  We were able to find plenty of both and had a fantastic time!
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart were so much fun.  I got one of their vinyls and was so pleased to find it was one of the limited ones that they had pressed.  I even got it signed!

The Trial of Dead
Drunk town! 
Swedish hard core band at the Swedish Showcase 
Bacon Bloody Marys were excellent!
Bright Eyes 

Love this! 
This wasn't even the end of our SXSW experience!

Dear Blue Faux-Wayfarers

Sometimes I wish that I never had to get rid of anything in my closet.  I look through old photos and see all those lovely dresses I once owned or that killer gold vest that I never wore enough and think "if only I had held onto it!"  Sunglasses circulate through my life even more frequently (mostly because I tend to buy cheap ones that break).  Upon finding photos of these awesome light blue faux-Wayfarers from 3 years ago I am suddenly missing them ever so much.  I believe I adopted them from my brother (sorry about stealing and breaking them bro!) and wore the hell out of them before one of the sides popped off.  I truly believe that everyone looks good in the Wayfarer style and black ones are so classic that even my Grandma would totally rock them!

What do you think darlings? What clothing items/accessories do you miss dearly?
