I'm having trouble coming up with ideas on what to be for Halloween.

I think I'll just steal this kids costume:

Today I Met the Most Beautiful Girl, and Then She Died.

"This is the end of my life but it is not the end of my love... it is not the end of the story." - Eva Markvoort, Feb. 11, 2010

See her blog here.
See her legacy here.
Help her here.

Poor Miley

That's right.  I said it.  Poor Miley.  With everyone freaking out over cyber-bullying these days, you'd think the media and critics would consider giving her a break. Yet when she released her new video everyone was quick to jump down her throat for wearing underwear in bed and dancing provacatively.  After all, the girl is only 17.

And so is she.

Taylor Momsen.  And yet no one says anything about her lingerie clad concerts and sacriligious music videos.

Remember when Miley wore this at a concert?  Critics had a hay-day.

But when Taylor wore see through lingerie on stage did you even hear about it?

The most risque magazine cover Miley graced showed a little bit of skin.

And here's Taylor's.
Miley wears this:
Taylor looks like a drugged out prostitute and no one says anything.
Album Covers?
Miley's shows a little skin and looks like EVERY OTHER pop album cover
And again Taylor goes with the drugged up skeeze look.
Remember the Annie Leibovitz controversial photo shoot?

Did you see the one where Taylor channels her (once again)
inner drugged up whore?

Here's Miley's most recent music video.  Yes, she's SLEEPING in bed in underwear (notice the sleep mask anyone?).  Yes, she looks hot.  Yes, she's dancing with boys.

But hey it could be worse.  She could be crawling around in Lingerie on the Last Supper table, giving everyone a provocative demonic glare.

Why don't they pick on somebody new?

Friday Funs!

So I'm off to Oregon for the weekend!  My sister will be a Freshman at U of O (but eh hem, go Huskies!) so I'm going to visit her and stopping to have dinner with some friends in Portland on my way down.  What are your plans this weekend?

Here some suggestions to peruse, ponder, observe, and explore:

I love this Kissing blog.  I'm caught somewhere between wanting to be a hopeless romantic and yet not quite convinced True Love doesn't only exist in Fairy Tales... this blog definitely makes me sway towards the hopeless romantic side.

My roommate LOVES Guinness. She's from Nigeria and apparently that's the only beer they drink. It's Nigeria's 50th Independance Day today (Horray Nigeria!) So I may just make this cake when I come home sunday for her. Not to mention, SUPER jealous of this kitchen!

I'm in love with the frumpy dress in neutral and the eye popping tights combo - wanna see more?

As soon as I find an old, discarded globe - this will be my next project.
And I'm just WAITING for an excuse to throw and Alice in Wonderland Tea Party!
