“I can’t even speak right now.” Cara Delevingne

It’s been a really wonky few weeks… I mean I just used the word wonky for fuck sake. Who am I? Who are you? And what the fuck are these?

iPad mini?
Mercedes mini vans?
Electric holiday?
The mustache thing?
Doutzen Kroes’ husband?
Lindsay Lohan’s face?
Lindsay Lohan’s life?
Lindsay Lohan’s death?
Christmas?
New Years?
The Middle East?
Charlie Hunnam?
Heath Ledger’s death?
Your wedding dress?
Babies?
Blogs?
Maccaroons?
Karlie Kloss?

Unclear. That’s what.

It’s Dani Bitch.

“I’m not materialistic.” Victoria Beckham

I thought in honor of my birthday tomorrow I would post a collection of my favorite photos of myself. But then I remembered there were too many so better to go with just one. Okay fine two.


Do you not die??? headband. topiary. fake boobs. foam platforms. one piece? I know. I was such a vision. ary. And oddly clairvoyant…

On Dying in Public.

“I cried on my 18th birthday.” Liv Tyler

November is always a really weird month for me. On the one hand I get super excited about my birthday. obv. But then I remember– there’s like actually nothing worse than a birthday. Okay aside from not making it to them each year but whatever. Aging is gross. I’m not sure how I got here. I was just 19. But like actually not. Which is scary. And beyond fucked up. What I do know is that I had an amazing deep condition the other day my hair is silken chocolate, I’ve been watching a ton of Teen Wolf, binging on pomegranates and pickles and brunching with my chakra re-alignist. It’s an Atala Rasatala thing. Anyway happy almost Thanksgiving, namaste and wish me luck on the last week of my life –for all of eternity– where I will be closer to my early 20’s than 30’s. I need to go throw up.

Through the Years

“Just remember, inside every girl, there’s a boy.” She’s the Man

Channing Tatum was just named “Sexiest Man of Alive,” which would’ve been so true if the year was 2006. but it’s not. Let’s examine shall we…

“Intimacy is like putting your wiener on a table and having someone say ‘That looks like a penis… only smaller.'” The Love Guru

It’s been forever since I’ve blogged. I’ve been completely uninspired lately– sometimes the wheels of my red r8 creativity just don’t turn… Anyway last year I wrote a list of things I’ve learned over the years and I just came across them, which albeit a little trite, are still relevant so I thought I’d share them:

1. Life is too short to be bundled up for so many months out of the year. Live the eternal summer.
2. Never rush. We are where we are where we are.
3. Wash your hands and NEVER touch your face.
4. Forgive people. And not for them but for you; if not you will always dwell in a house of pain.
5. Communication is everything. We have language for a reason.
6. Hug often.
7. Be open minded. Work to overcome inherent judgementality.
8. Never stop learning, growing, laughing, loving.
9. Value the relationships you make above everything. People are all we have in this life.
10. Peanut butter, raisins and honey are good on just about anything.
11. Work hard, because there isn’t shit else to do. i struggle with this but it sounds good on the list
12. In case of emergency breathe deep. drink fast. or call 911. feel it out.
13. Gaucho pants work on nobody.
14. Balance is subjective.
15. Have an identity outside of your family, friends, work and lovers.
16. Death discriminates against no one.
17. Don’t wait; for people. success. happiness.
18. Calling someone ignorant makes you sound like Michael Jackson. and really fucking ignorant.
19. Have a heart. Stress kills.
20. Don’t stand idly in open doorways, arches, steps and passageways. Move out of the way.
21. Push yourself. But sometimes it’s okay not to eat the coconut scorpion braised Argentinian scaled watersnake.
22. Vacation. In sick locations. locations. locations.
23. Treat. yo. self. and if you’re my family treat me too.
24. Turtlenecks are creepy.
25. Love maddeningly deeply.
26. Legalize it already.

The Herds The Word

“Two things Florida can teach the other 49 states: how to make a good margarita and how to deal with a hurricane.” Tom Feeney

Well well well another of Mother Nature’s minions is headed our way. Mine especially– being in Jersey and all. Or so they keep telling me. And by they I mean my parents and a concerned acquaintance via Facebook chat. Sure I’m just as scared of dying on the 7th floor of a high rise on a cliff in a natural disaster as the next, but I’m also the first looking forward to a 57th street blackout. Bergdorf. Chanel. Louis. YSL. Bring it Irene Sandy. jk be safe.

Party Monsters

“If you have a hunchback throw a little glitter on it and go dancing.” James St. James

The thing with clubs is, they can really suck. But the thing with clubs is, they can also be really affecting. Like Saturday night for example- no line, no crowd, so fun. By the looks of it everyone was either at pier 94, or some all white thing. Which if you ask me, will just never be as chic as an all black thing. White makes everything visible. Especially fat. ugly. and pale; the likes of which black would make appear less fat. less ugly. and less pale. But what do I know, I’m just happy concert kids are tired the new club kids. meow.

Halloweiner

“Why are you dressed so scary?” Mean Girls

I feel like every fashion bloggist this year is staging a coup de sluttiness in their Halloween costume guides. Which is some serious tom foolery. I mean everyone knows the only compelling part of Halloween past the age of 13 is the nudity. duh. Last year I was a gold digger, and the year before that a ‘Rock of Love’ contestant. This year I’m a butter face. Cheap dress, garish mask. huge flask. perfection. Happy drinking!

Beach Daze 2

 “She would be half a planet away, floating in a turquoise sea, dancing by moonlight to flamenco guitar.” Janet Fitch

I spent the past few days out at the beach. And it was fucking fabulous. The only thing more chic than summer beach, is winter beach. Sun and no sweat. Biking and no sweat. Breathing and no sweat. It’s.. amazing.
