Well yesterday I missed my beloved post because I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Between packing everything up at work to ship to NY and packing up all of my own stuff for my 10-day vacay, there hasn't been much time for anything else! But I wanted to leave you guys with a random Friday post until I get back to civilization on the 31st (Which will be Halloween, are you guys prepared?? I'm so not.)

Today's post will be random facts about my friends and family, since all I can think about is getting home and seeing them.

Random Facts:
1. My two best friends and I were referred to as the Tripod (Okay, we still call ourselves this). We were named this by my friend Betsy's creepy neighbor who I ran over with my car one morning on our way to school (just his foot, I didn't hurt him calm down)
2. I always wanted braces when I was growing up because I thought they were cool. Then when I got them, I decided it was cool to make them in my school's colors to be extra school-spirited. None of the above is cool.
3. My dad thinks he is a movie critic, and his favorite genre is romantic comedies/chick flicks. He will email me his ranking of a movie on a scale of 1-5 on how good it was. He gave Easy A a 5, so clearly we have the same great taste in movies.
4. When I was a child I had a boy bowl cut that made me not even recognize myself in pictures. There is still one mysterious picture of "me" sleeping on my grandpa's lap that everyone claims is me, but I swear is some boy cousin. It didn't help that they dressed me in a full blue sweatsuit with matching sneakers.
5. My playlist for my trip home (not joking):
Adele- particularly Someone Like You, but all/any will do
Natalie Imbruglia- Torn
Any/All Billy Joel
Lady Gaga- You and I
All NSync
All Hilary Duff hits from the 2000s

Ok have a great weekend everybody, and don't miss me too much while I'm gone! See you in 10 days!


Hometown Pride

From looking at me, most people I meet out in LA are surprised to know that I'm a sports fan. But coming from St. Louis, it's hard not to be completely and totally obsessed with the Cardinals. If you haven't been to this amazing city, we are a die-hard baseball city. The summer is by far my favorite time in STL because it always means baseball games and outdoor patios and dancing with random old men at Paddy O's (good lord, I miss that place. I even miss the friendly/creepy old men.)

That's one big thing that I miss about home when I'm out here, there's definitely something almost magical about baseball season. But I would oft times get odd looks at games because even though I love the Cards, I refuse to wear a t-shirt or jersey to the game. Please. Just because I like the sport, does not mean I have to dress like I'm on the team. Being a true fan doesn't mean you have to throw your fashion sense out the window. So grab some red skinny jeans, an oversized sweater and some boots and drink a Budweiser in honor of St. Louis. You know you want to.

Go Cards.


NY in 6 days

Things at work have been crazy busy since we have our NY Press Preview coming up in a mere 6 days. I've been working like crazy while also trying to decide what the f I'm going to wear while I'm there. Just a second ago, I looked down at my desk and saw that I had written a post-it note that said:

Leather Pants
Felt Hat

Wow, I'm really glad that those are my two necessities for my trip to New York. Knowing me I'll have both of those and forget any type of underwear. But who needs underwear when I'll be in my favorite city in the whole world??

NYC outfit inspiration:


Holy Hell, What Am I Going to be for Halloween?

Halloween. What was once my favorite holiday has gone from a happy occasion to a dreaded one in the matter of a year. First of all, let's just get this out there, I hate scary shit. I once was forced to watch The Exorcist at a friend's party in high school because it was a boy/girl party, and I didn't want to look like a loser covering my eyes and crying in the corner. I'm pretty sure I slept with all the lights on for a week (year) afterwards. Scariness + Megan= Bad. Just, bad. But for some reason, I always loved Halloween. The trick-or-treating and outfit planning were my favorites growing up. Even though I probably went as a cheerleader for an embarrassingly consecutive amount of Halloweens, it was still always fun thinking of what I wanted to be.

This joy for costumes lasted all the way up until just recently, when joy turned into a headache very quickly. Last year, I dressed up like Selena (yes the late Mexican popstar, no not Gomez). I knew I wanted to be Selena for a full 6 months before Halloween and even put a reminder in my phone for October 1st (I know, I'm creeepy). I bedazzled a bra and teased the shit out of my hair. It was great. The year before that, I can't remember what I was, but I'm sure I was excited about it. This year... I have no idea what to dress up like. And another big problem... Los Angeles. Apparently living in LA means that much like on the movie Mean Girls, girls are supposed to just slut it up and put creativity on a back burner for Halloween. NOT okay. I refuse to put on some lace corset and ears and go as a slutty cat. So sorry, but I'd rather put on 25 coats and put trash in my hair and go as the woman I pass on my way to work everyday. (To be fair, she probably has quite the selection of vintage coats). Actually, that's not a bad idea, I'll add that one to my list.

Since I'm heading back on Friday from NY, and I'm heading to STL this Friday, I have exactly 4 days to figure out 2 nights of costumes. So far I'm at zero, unless you count the homeless idea I just discussed. So below are some ideas that I've thrown together today. And yes, I did ask the interns to think of costumes for me as part of their tasks for the day. One of them actually was able to think of something, props to her.

So here are my idea (and the intern's) ideas:

1. Pretty Woman
Other than the fact that this is one of my favorite movies, I feel like it's mega appropriate since I'm living in LA now and actually know where Hollywood Blvd. is located. I definitely wouldn't want to go as Vivian circa whenever she got classed up. I'd be the whore-y version because duh, whores have more fun. I need to find someone to be my Kit though. Any takers?

2. Amy Winehouse
Okay to be fair I dressed up like her when she was in her prime circa 2007, but now that this is posthumous costume, I feel like it is acceptable to bring it back. Plus all I need is a black wig since I have plenty of liquid eye liner and jean shorts. Is it too creepy that she's dead though? I need some opinions on this one.

3. Dora The Explorer. The intern suggested I dress up like Dora since I have short brown hair now and speak excellent Espanol. (No, I don't.) But I'm honestly not quite sure how I would pull that look together in the amount of time I have. And Jessica Alba apparently dressed up like her last year. Yuck.

4. Pregnant Rachel Zoe. Sure, she's everyones favorite celebrity stylist turned designer, but what was more of a mindfuck than when she decided to go and get herself preggers? That bony frame supporting a child is still something my brain has yet to comprehend. I'm thinking all I really need for this costume is a blond wig, large sunglasses, red lipstick, sequined dress, fur jacket and a large starbucks coffee. I already own all of these except for the blond wig...

5. Anna Wintour. She's the world's scariest magazine editor, and gosh darnit, I love her. She never smiles, she looks like a dinosaur and there was a whole movie made about how terrifying she is. What's not to love? Props needed: Blond bob wig, giant sunnies, conservative sweater set, pissed off facial expression (check!)

Okay, five ideas?? That's it?? I need your help people! Tweet me, Facebook me, call me (since I know all of you!!) Let's make this happen!
