Guiltless indulgence

Oh how I hate Walmart. Even the semi hilarious site "People of Walmart" makes my teeth itch. But if even I have to enter the tenth circle of hell to get these Girl Scout Cookie lip balms, I will

Beats that Angry Bird idea anyway

With Halloween on the radar, I offer up the most spectacular costumes ever. Called Soundsuits and made by Nick Cave (the Chicago artist, NOT the singer)these fantastical, enormous, full body masks jingle and swish, you know, to make sure even the blind people notice them. I have seen these in person at 21C in Lousiville and they are jubilantly spectacular. Please please bring these to the IMA, Petra!

I have been epicly remiss in writing about the Indianapolis Fashion Collective now known as Pattern Well, they paid me back by asking me to speak at the launch party last night, which was not hugely terrible except for a dress malfunction (Curley's Cleaners can suck it)
Pattern is an organization that brings Indianapolis fashion lovers, sellers, designers and supporters together. Members are amazingly diverse and unexpected and include Make-up artists (MUA), photogs and seamstresses. Sure, it is a big fat networking thing it is also a really great way to elevate the fashion IQ of our fair city. Check it.

As a step towerd healthy living and a new conduit for vodka, I bought a Lalanne juicer. As in Jack. I juiced for about 2 days and was immediately over it. First of all: it's a goddamn mess to use. Impossible to clean and every glass I poured it into has an unremoveable film on it. Secondly: it creates a lot of waste pulp. As in heaving mounds of it. As for the suggestion I use it it soups and breads, well, there is not enough flour in the world to create all the muffins you must bake to use it all up. And it broke my garbage disposal. It's not all bad, the chrome does match my appliances, so there is that.

Ba donk

My goodness it has been a long time. Miss me? Been doing a lot of shopping, like a crazy person, hit the Wig Store twice in one week and that alone will really wear you out. I don't know about you but my children's favorite thing there is the fake butts. (What? Don't you take your kids to the wig store?) They were awed and amazed and asked for one for their birthday. I did decline, there was a quality issue I felt, however I found these super nice built-in butt pad underwares ($34)on
