Halloween in Haunting its way on over....

***UPDATED: ***
Halloween Costumes. How does one decide? You could pick a popular trend or celebrity or go with the basics. I for one refuse to spend alot of money on halloween so I usually rummage through my closet and then Aahs, Aardvarks, thrift stores and Target/Walmart for the little things. I'm usually successful as I tend to collect costume pieces and accessories anyway!! So I just thought I'd give some ideas and advice for cool costumes:!!

CHECK OUT MY 2011 costume page Sparkle Barbie's Big Adventure

If you are dress like a penis or sperm you are LAME and proly an A-hole...just saying.

If you are wearing a mask, drinking alcohol becomes increasingly difficult. Factor that in when searching for costumes, and they are disgusting. I'm sorry but no one is hooking up with dude in Freddy Kruger mask...........EVER!

If you paint your face, please wear a sealer or powder over it, nothign is more gross than a sweaty guy or girl at a party with runny white makeup/blood dripping down their face unless that was the intended outfit!

Girls....IF Wear short skirts, outfits whatever, please wear something lacy or cute that resembles shorts or briefs and not just a thong or nothing its gross.  I know many may not care because they just want to look hot or have a good time on halloween.  But please keep in mind how an oversexualized outfit may be someone's fantasy and you may look amazing, but it also puts out an oversexualized image of YOU as well.  Please be aware that not wearing alot and being wasted may not always result in good decision making, especially around other hot men and women, and especially in skantily klad outfit which could wrongfully project what you're down for. There could be unwanted advances or awkward situations so please take care of yourselves, have a sober friend/Designated Driver and make sure you are all safe!
Cat costumes are ALWAYS cute, but try to spice it up! You don't neeeed to wear leather, that overkill. Don't want to risk looking like a domanatrix. Just be sexy and cute.
or for work...
classy for work if you are allowed to wear costumes :D

Witches!!! Not gonna lie my costume is for a 6yr old! But it fit perfectly and I added boots and tights!! Found the dress at a thrift store!! Been reused a few times and always a winner!!

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
