I am a rabidly huge supporter of small businesses. Ironic coming from Starbucks’ number one fan, eh? Regardless of my vividly pink drink preferences, I adore artists from Etsy, Society 6, and beyond. So, when Blending By Betty reached out to me, I was over the moon ecstatic. Here’s an amazingly talented lady with an aesthetic that perfectly aligns with my own. And she’s willing to take a chance on teaming up with a new blog? Done and done.
Roughly 400 years ago, I discovered a little brand called Black Milk. They’re Australian nylon whisperers who might be just as nerdy as me. If you haven’t jumped on board their train of cool, you’ve been missing out on some of the coolest things ever.
I have a tendency to err on the side of goth. That’s no secret. Even when I’m dressed like a rainbow, my quietness and permanent scowl tend to give off a darker vibe. Finding new ways to up the gothic ante is always fun, especially with Lazy Oaf.
There’s been a couple dreary days in Atlanta this week. Any excuse to bring out the best umbrella in the world. I’m glow-in-the-dark pale, so I guess I should just bring it out whenever to save my fair complexion. While I love rainy days (I’m moving to Portland for this reason), this bumpershoot tells Mother Nature exactly what you think of her. Take that! …Then lightning strikes you dead where you stand, and Mother Nature has the last laugh. Always.
Sadly, I’ve been busy putting a sick boyfriend back together. It’s tough work being the worst nurse ever. Chicken noodle soup? Nah, Taco Bell will fix you up just fine. Go to a doctor? How about some amoxicillin for fish instead? I’m awful but I digress. With the exception of a few short jaunts out in the world, I’ve been napping and binging Netflix. Thus this eloquently pointless post.
You’ll notice that I’m wearing ruffles (unusual) and odd leggings (not unusual) in the photo. That means there will be a more extensive style post later in the week. I also have a sneak peek of my pin collaboration with Lithium Press coming up. Let’s rock n’ roll.
I’m about to try brunch at this fairly new place in Inman Park, Bread & Butterfly. They apparently have a strawberry granola bowl that will put a smile on my face. I will report back with details.
