Glamorous 2019

Today I am sharing my word for 2019:


GLAMOROUS

Of course Fergie sang about being Glamorous:



I chose the word to embrace the beauty within me. I have struggled with body confidence for years. I want to be comfortable in the skin I am in. That also means more photo shoots for 2019, and hopefully more pinup contests!

I decided to create my word to hang in my bathroom. So I got some wooden letters from Wal-Mart:


Laid out my words then I painted them black along with glitter:


The last step is I used sticky tack to place the letters on my bathroom wall under my mirror



I have been do some small changes in my bathroom (again) I will be sharing them soon!!

Have a great week!!

2018 Recap/2019 Goals

Is it too late to do a recap of 2018? Well I am going to anyways.

2018 was an interesting year a lot of ups and downs. My "original" plan was to do a rather long blog post recapping the entire year but as you can see I am blogging less and I am trying to figure a schedule for 2019 because this is my 10th year of blogging! Crazy I know!!

Enough chatting onto the post!

*Meeting Jason David Frank. As you know this was on my bucket list for a while and I finally crossed it off back in February! I also met Amy Jo Johnson that same weekend. Later on, I met Thomas Ian Nicholas (at a random book signing) as well.

*Two photo shoots. Also in February I did my Grease shoot and later on I did a Halloween mini session which here is the pic below:



*I got published! Yup with the Grease photos, I was able submit into Retro Lovely Magazine! It was such a thrill to published with one of my favorite Curvy Pinups Cherry D'Lish (look for a post about curvy babes later!)

*4 pinup contests! I did World of Wheels, Scene of the Crash, Daisy Jones and Miss Shamrock

*Traveled to Colorado, North Palette, Kansas City and the far ends of Iowa (to see the world's biggest truck stop on the way home) and took pictures with Dinosaurs

*I got a new car. Although that was not planned but I love Sunni

*A new tattoo which was super fun to get!

*Won tickets to Daughtry this was a surprise for me! The concert was amazing!!



*Last but not least I got a new job and left overnights behind!! This was the big one as it had been my goal for years and it finally happened! It has been an adjustment for sure but I am liking my new job!



What's in store for 2019?

I want to learn how to play the Ukele

I want to master more vintage hair styles (I will get Victory Rolls down)

More contests and hopefully more photo shoots

Travel

Hopefully move!

Get fit

Less social media


I will be sharing my word for 2019 later on!

Vintage Jewelry

I know this is a bit late but I wanted to still post this anyways as I am working on trying to get back to blogging weekly.


My good friend Vicki reached out to me and had some really fun vintage/junk jewelry to give me! Vicki is always the best when it comes to the goodies :)

Dad and I went out to her house 3 weeks ago to visit. I wished I had take pictures of her d├ęcor because it was so on point. Vicki had picked some pieces for me already (that's how well she knows me) but I ended up taking the whole tin with me because I was finding too many treasures!!
I felt like a pinup pirate.


Here is some of the pics:




 



There is a lot of fun pieces in here! I am hoping to working on making the clip on earrings into regular dangle earring for pierced ears and transform other pieces too!

90's Wish List

Wassshup?

The 90's are making a come back! From Caboodles, to Tamagotchi's.

Today I am sharing a few things that I have found that I wouldn't mind having again :) since I was a kid growing up in the 90's (best time ever if you ask me).


Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Card game  

My little nerdy heart fluttered when I saw this game! I was such a Carmen Sandiego junkie (never caught that slippery B) I watched the game show on PBS wishing I could be on it (just to wear the sweet beret and the jacket. Plus who wouldn't want a free trip to one of the 50 states??)

Also there is a 90's versions of Cards Against Humanity
and The Oregon Trail

I've been at my local Target they have platform shoes, Cher Inspired Plaid outfits, Holographic everything, Velcro wallets, and mini Arcade key chains!

Femme De Bloom

She has the best 90's accessories including the Uncle Jesse earrings!

Also here is a list of 27 Gifts That prove the 90's were the best which has some other fun gift ideas!!

Happy Shopping

Miss Shamrock 2018

Back on October 21st (I'm playing catch-up here) I attended my 5th and final contest for 2018 Miss Shamrock at Hooks Pub in the town of Clinton Iowa.

I had no intentions of competing again for the rest of the year after my tragic Daisy Jones mishap but I didn't want to end of the year on a bad note so when I saw Miss Shamrock I knew I wanted to do one more to end the year right!!!

The only kicker was Clinton Iowa is 6 HOURS away which meant my pinup partner in crime Cora (aka Sara) and I had to leave Saturday afternoon for the contest Sunday. (Note to shelf: never go to a pinup contest that is THAT many hours away from you!). We got a hotel and arrived at Clinton by 8pm CST.

Also to my delight, I discovered that Lucky Gal Tattoo is a REAL place! (post on that later too!)

We got up Sunday morning and got our glam on! I decided I really wanted to have fun with this look so I did a Captain America inspired look:



Dress: More Me Know
Hair Flower: Lilo Jo (which ended up falling apart)
Shoes: Bettie Paige
Shield: Target Dollar Spot
Earrings and Brooch: Femme De Bloom

Cora's sister did victory rolls for me!
My original look I had planned (early) I just wasn't feeling, the closer the event was coming, I just had no desire to go through with it. I had to DIY something and did not get around to it which is very unusual for me!

I went to my favorite place Target and found a foam Captain America Shield (yay dollar spot!) in plans to put at my permanent cubicle at work but inspiration hit me to do a Cap look for the contest. As I mentioned before, I really wanted to have fun with this!





One more for good measure!!


I didn't win but I made some amazing friendships which is way more important than a tiara or sash!

Unicorn Aquired! Vixen by Micheline Pitt

Hello Babes!

I don't have many "unicorns" when it comes to dresses if you remember I did score a Bernie Dexter number back in 2016. 

Another rare piece was a Vixen by Micheline Pitt when the collection first launched also back in 2016 I had gotten my hands on a skirt but it was too small (sad face) I've hung onto it in the hopes I will fit into it one day...

I am no stranger to Vixen by Micheline Pitt, this year I ordered some Halloween T-Shirts from her Ben Cooper collection (I took advantage of her Labor Day Sale!) and I never got around to posting about it (#themonthgotawayfromme).

Anyways....... long story short! I happen to be on Facebook when one of the (many) pinup groups I belong to was selling the Lipstick Print Dress which is the same print as the skirt is. I knew I had to have it! I jumped at the chance to claim it (I know how these FB groups are) before I knew it the dress was being shipped to me!!

I haven't gotten a chance to steam it yet or wear it (just to tried it on fits like a dream!!)



I'll have proper outfit photos done later!!
