The Pirate's Life for Me

I just got back from fall break! I visited my best bud at his school in Indiana, then went home to hang out with my family for the rest of the week. I had to endure a lot of long bus rides, but it was completely worth it. Here are some of my favorite pictures I took while I was away and since I got back.

Some of my recent purchases. Yellow lace curtain, Hello Kitty soda, Hello Kitty hot chocolate mix (it makes pink hot chocolate!!!!), Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block (the Weetzie Bat books), ouija board mints (!), ouija pin from AnOldSchoolGhoul on etsy, embroidery supplies.

A pile of sparkly stuff on my bed. I'm such a magpie, I can't resist anything glittery.

My first attempt at embroidery. This is part of a larger diy project I'm working on. Get excited! (Just kidding, it's not that exciting unless you're me.)

My contact solution spilled in my makeup bag and made my black lipstick tube look like this. I have no idea how it turned pink tie-dye, but it looks pretty cool. (This is the brand, by the way. Highly recommended.)

And finally, my super spoooOOOoOOooky manicure. I used this tutorial and covergirl nail polish in crushed berries, which looks exactly like blood when you use one coat.

(Where the post title comes from. Also a really good song.)


  1. wowow great buys- dangerous angels is one of my favourite books ever... i get emotional wondering why my life isn't as magical as any of the characters in the book. also your nails look perfectly spooky xx
