adorable monsters

Don't worry! I haven't forgotten about my artist recognition spree. I'll do that later.

So, last year I was super bored and searched "virtual game" on Google.
Up came this really cute website called Moshi Monsters. It's a virtual pet site.
Basically, you create a free account and receive a pet, or monster, of your choice. The creatures are frankly too cute for words, even the little drooling zombie. Now, for some privileges you need to pay a fee, but you can have fun anyways.
Here's the website:
Enjoy ;)

fashion vs. fashion

So yeah. I haven't been posting. Sorry.

Anyways, I have been thinking about fashion and what is "fashion." For me, fashion is the newest, greatest, and most outrageous clothing, accessories, etc.
Also, fashion is in the eye of the beholder. Some people think trendy clothing is fashionable, whereas I think individualistic pieces are much more so.
For example: My friends think Lady Gaga's style is insane. I think it's amazing and artistsic. Most teens my age think "normal" clothes from Forever 21 are cool. Forever 21 is ok, but I love Kidrobot.
So because I don't view fashion the same way others do, that means I'm not cool or popular?
It's strange how people think everything is either normal and abnormal. I think things are cloned or unique.

Just a thought. ;)

By the way, can someone please tell me what's going on with "My Generation" on ABC?
And if you don't know Kidrobot here's their site:

twitter is SO not overrated

I have a TWITTER account:
Yeah, I am that cool.
So I was on there the other day and I noticed I have officially FIVE followers. I was so ecstatic. Now I have three. It turns out two of them were really set up to get me to travel to Las Vegas. That sentence had a lot of "to"s.
Anyways, I looked up each one and two of them really made me feel awesome inside:
And yes, they are actual people.
Steve owns a company called "Lolita-Girl" which sells '50s and pin-up inspired clothing.
Here's the link: Their clothing is really cute! You gotta check it out! ;)
Raed owns a company called "Cardelicious" which sells awesome greeting cards.
Here's the site: There are even cards with BEING HUMAN peeps!
Anyways, I just really wanted to talk about them cuz I ACTUALLY HAVE FOLLOWERS!
Enjoy mah peeps ;)
There are 7 "to"s in this blog entry. Not bad. Not bad at all.

the good, the bad, and the fugly: homecoming edition

See, I am blogging more. ;)
So in honor of the high school tradition called "Homecoming," I have made a list of what I thought were good, bad, and downright fugly homecoming dresses. These are all considered "homecoming" and not prom, winter formal, or any other dance. Just homecoming.
They are in this alternating order: good, bad, fugly (just in case you didn't figure that out already)
Simple LBDs (little black dresses) can go a long way. If you pair it with the right accesories and bling they can look really formal and cute. I don't really know how to describe this middle dress..... It's just really bad. The last dress however made me cringe. Bare-midriff? Really?
The first one again is very simple in terms of dress style, but styled in a way that the model looks vintage and fashionable. The second dress is when an ugly dress is styled in a weird way. What's with the top hat? Oh gosh, that poor model in the last picture. She will always be remembered as the girl at homecoming in the tacky semi-zebra dress.
 The first one is actually pretty cool. When I first saw I kinda skipped over it, but it's actually pretty. I'm pretty certain the middle one is some weird long shirt thing. I don't even know what to think about the last one. I know if one of my friends came to homecoming in a dress like that I would probably tell security to escort her out.
Hope you found my comments kinda of useful. PLEASE COMMENT ;)

charlie is so cool like....

If you love hot, young British guys with nerdy interests and do totally silly (but awesome) stuff, you must check out Charlie McDonnell. Also known as: Charlieissocoollike.
Seriously, I could watch his videos FOR HOURS, which is partially due to the fact that he's adorable and has a dreamy British accent, but also because he's hilarious and positively quirky.
Reasons to watch his youtube videos and check out his website:
1. Very, very funny. Wow, I just made it sound bland.
2. He reads your comments. Which reminds me, PLEASE COMMENT ON MY BLOG!
3. He likes Doctor Who. He even ate custard and fishsticks.
4. He is British, which just makes him more interesting (aka sexy accent).
5. He has seriously RUBY RED hair. No joke.
6. He is part of a band called Sons of Admirals, which unfortunately isn't on iTunes.
7. He is adorable. ;)
Here is his website:
Here is his youtube channel:
Check him out!!! ;)

creepy catfish

I love the movie Catfish. I love the movie Catfish. I love the movie Catfish.
The commercials boast how a critic said, "Catfish is the movie Alfred Hitchcock never directed."
Boy that critic was spot on. It was thrilling, suspenseful, creepy, and tragic.
Here are some tips before going to see the movie (BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE GOING NO MATTER WHAT):
1. Don't watch the trailer.
2. Don't look up the ending.
3. Don't ask me or some other person the plot or ending.
4. Go see the movie knowing absolutely nothing, and you will enjoy it immensely.
I came out of the theater feeling angry, sad, excited, and overall thrilled that I saw this film.
And no, I won't even give you the website. ;)
