I have recently come to terms with the fact that I have a horrible, horrible addiction to accessories. I don't mean regular, grown up jewelry with real silver or gold and gems and whatever. I mean silly plastic jewels and rings with gigantic parts on them. Feather headbands and plastic barrettes. Hats, too, recently. I can now say that I own more than one hat! And scarves! With the impending Winter I've recently gotten into wearing scarves. However, I've also become really pretty poor lately (probably partially due to the accessories obsession, to be completely honest) so I thought I'd try my hand at some DIY projects now that I've completed my latest huge one (wedding aside...we're pretending that doesn't exist for now.) So here are a couple for you:

You know the new season of Project Runway can't start without me blogging something about it!

Who is the fucking band on that Bacardi Mojito commercial??

Banksy installed some pieces in New Orleans nearly nine months ago, and there was word that many of them were already being covered up. BUT, as it turns out, there is still at least one left!

So like...I haven't blogged in forever, and last time I did it was pretty lame. But certain things have been preventing my online activity...like, life. It's my last (real) semester, and even though I'm only taking 9 credit hours it's been pretty hardcore. As I type, there are two projects I shouold be working on--one, a ten-to-fifteen-pagepaper on a department store I'd never even heard of before having it assigned to me, and the other a location analysis for the boutique of a lace designer who is impossible to get in touch with....

I guess I couldn't be considered a proper Project Runway fan if I didn't jump on the bandwagon and mention Kenley Collins' recent arrest, would I?

Project Runway is the only reality show I've ever really gotten into, and since it's gone I've found a temporary replacement reality show. No, not American Idol.

Okay so I hadn't posted in a little while and I had these big fantastic ideas about making up for it by posting some fun Mardi Gras stuff: talking about parades and king cake and whatever else. I even had a video set up to share! I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to first get it off of the recorder (it's not like I'd never done videos before! I just couldn't remember how all of a sudden) and thennnn all this time trying to upload it directly from Youtube with the program it came with, and thennnn when that didn't work I finally figured out where on my computer went and uploaded it manually by myself. Then there's this waiting period where it has to be put live, which is why I'm talking about it today instead of yesterday. http://dawnvivant.com/index.php?article=Happy_Mardi_Gras

My entry today was going to be my top 5 list of style role models, but in the search for good pictures of each of them, I got totally sidetracked and ended up just looking at pictures of one. So today, I present to you #1

You know what I really hate about being white and living in one of the most redneck states in the country? The fact that random strangers think that I will happily engage in racist conversations and laugh at their racist jokes. I know this sounds like it would be an uncommon occurrence, but I swear it happens rather often.

Brett and I had a super busy day and I took a bunch of pictures which I now have to resize because they're all like 3000 pixels wide and I'm pretty sure you don't want to deal with THAT. So I'm going to keep this post as short as possible so I can get to resizin' for that one.

I guess I'm at this early twenties age (I refuse to consider myself to be in my mid-twenties until later this year when I am officially "mid-twenty") where I have a lot of friends and family who are in relationships, but not yet married. This makes it really awkward when they announce that they are pregnant.

Wednesday was also the day of my haircut. I know I just got one two weeks earlier, but um..I hated it already. I also got Brett to dye it red for me (it has been black for the last year or so, brown or blond before that....I haven't had red in a few years, I think) and I realized yesterday when I put on a headband that it looks like the girl (android, apparently?) from that anime The Big O...

I always know when something new has come out about Jeffrey Sebelia, or when reruns of Project Runway are on, because everyone ends up getting here by searching "jeffrey sebelia wife" or "jeffrey sebelia mustache" or "jeffrey sebelia cassandra church" and I feel a little bad that my blog doesn't actually offer all that much to help you with your search...other than that one time I met Jeffrey in Little Tokyo and posted that picture of me with him and that awesome mustache.

This is sort of a cop-out post

This is going to be a short post, because I have seven hours before it's time for work, so I need to get some sleep.

"first, no tagbacks. Second...um....send me five dollars. Third...write some random stuff about yourself. Fourth...don't tag anybody else because seriously, this was supposed to be way easier than it was and finally...send me five dollars."

Does anyone else find it fascinating that the kids nowadays are watching the same cartoons our grandparents probably saw when they were kids?
