Today I Lost My Longtime Friend

Today I lost my furry family member of 16 years, my cat Friskie.
 My father gave her and her sister Patches (she passed in 2006) to me when I was six years old. They were just two stray little kittens and they became my childhood friends all the way until today. Friskie was very ill and she was quite old. Last night I shared my final goodbyes with her. She passed in her sleep sometime early this morning, I'm just happy she isn't suffering anymore as she couldn't walk or eat anymore. I loved her very and her sister Patches very very much.
May she rest in peace she will be forever missed.

all my love

Drinks With Don Draper

It's been a week since the season 5 premiere of Mad Men, and tonight there's a new episode!! I can't wait!
Have a drink with you Mr. Draper? Don't mind If I do.

Oh and as for those drinks with Don, I was bored one day and decided to finally "Mad Men" myself!! I think it kind of resembles me, I have a dress very similar to that and the purse too. And I'll think I'll skip the martini and go for the Blood Mary, I love those!
Lately I've been very 60's inspired, I'm not that into 60's like I used to be back in my Juinor year of High School. Granted I still love them!! Fashion, music, design, colors those avocado greens and mustard yellows! But lately I've been putting extra coats of eyeliner, listening to 60's french pop and I think it has a lot to do with this scene from Mad Men's first episode of season five.

The Zou Bisou Dress!!
Now a days I wouldn't really be drawn to 60's shift/Mod dresses , but I really want this dress for myself, I think I'm going to try and recreate it.

January Nights

It's a Saturday night (or should I say sunday morning?) and I'm home. It's raining so it's the perfect excuse, but that's usually how I spend my weekends. I'm not dying to be this party monster, I just miss January. I never really went to an actual nightclub before. You know the kind that are jam packed with people, music blaring and a million strobe lights! During that month all I did was go to all sorts of clubs and bars! Weekends and Weekdays. The energy and all night dancing with old friends making new ones!!
Like one of my favorite Iggy Pop songs, I kind of miss it.

Drinks with my long time Best Friend Ashley  & Watching DM tribute band Strangelove

My first actual "nightclub" at the world famous club/bar/restaurant The Abbey
