Merry Heroin Chic XMas

  So I fucking love Sky Ferreira? I've just really gotten into her the past few days and oh my lord, she is stunning. I'm in love with her music videos, her color scheme, her hairstyles, her makeup, her voice, her lyrics.. her. I'm in love with her. She just oozes heroin chic retro glam princess, and if that's not going to be the next "it" thing on Tumblr, I don't know what will. My point is, despite my rambling, Sky Ferreira is flawless.
  I'm basically just going to catch you all up to how I've been lately; I just got out of the CDU so I'm feeling a little weird readjusting back into "normal" life. The only thing I can do normally is rant on Tumblr, so that's always fun. They switched up my meds and now I'm completely sober, so that's a big bucket of joy. I'm on Atarax for anxiety and Risperidol for a mood stabilizer. If you or anyone you know have ever been on these meds please leave feedback in the comments, whether it be positive or negative! I'd love to hear your experiences.
  I've also been in love with My Neighbor Totoro lately. I tried watching Spirited Away, which is also a Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli film (I've heard nothing but the best lately) and I thought it was just okay, while Totoro gave me nostalgia and made me feel like a child again. I really do recommend both films for the animation though, and Totoro just for the cutesy factor.
  So that's really it, I just thought I'd blab on and post pretty pictures as I always do. Unless I post something else, have some happy holidays, folks! Enjoy your winter.

I got this gorgeous shirt from thepulpgirls. It's vintage! 

On another note, my hair is now partially manic panic red.

Misty Days of Witchcraft

  Hello lovelies! Halloween is this Friday! I must admit, I am beyond ecstatic. Lately, I've been dressing very Halloween-y. My inspiration this year has come from watching season three of American Horror Story, titled Coven. In this season, there is a particular witch named Misty Day played by the AMAZING Lily Rabe. Lily Rabe did an amazing job playing Sister Mary Eunice in season two's Asylum as well. Misty Day is a huge Stevie Nicks fan, and she spends the majority of her on-screen time twirling around in shawls, listening to Fleetwood Mac. In other words, she's perfect! Just take a look at first Stevie, and then Misty.

And now Misty!

  They're both such lovely women, you can't help but love them! Because of them, lately I've been wearing a lot of floral print, shawls, and black lace. I also have this amazing skeleton hand hair clip from this Etsy if you'd like to check out some of their work. It's wonderful.
  Alright, I didn't have much to say other than Halloween! So enjoy some SpoOoOoky pictures and this Spotify Halloween playlist! At the bottom are a list of Misty Day-inspired songs as well. Enjoy Halloween, lovelies!

Keep Calm & Play Animal Crossing

  I've had a very troubling past few weeks, I hope all of you have been doing well. I've been drinking way more than I should be, and in doing so, I've been incredibly cranky during my sober moments. I've also been abusing amphetamines and opiates, and it took watching Walk the Line (the Johnny Cash movie) to get me to realize how drug abuse can really hurt my friends. Although I'm not going quite cold turkey, I'm going to try to limit my drug and alcohol use for the time being in order to keep happier and healthier.
  Last night, I found out some troubling news about my boyfriend, which caused me to end things with him. I feel incredibly hurt and betrayed, and I was very tempted to drink my feelings away. I stayed sober for the evening, which was probably the best decision I could have made. I feel maybe I'll only drink for fun now, not to numb my problems. I've also very recently quit smoking cigarettes, which made my life hell. It does not make you look cool. It does not take the stress away. It only adds further stress into your life by becoming addicted to a literal cancer stick. I'm so glad I've had the courage to knock such bad habits, and I encourage all of you facing the same troubles I am to kick them, too.
  On a lighter note, I've been kind of obsessed with the Animal Crossing soundtrack. I found some great 8Tracks playlists (1, 2) featuring Animal Crossing songs, so I highly recommend you check them out. You can check out my latest Tumblr project though, the CalmingCorner, where I've posted both of them. It's a new idea of mine to create a "safe place" type Tumblr where people going through panic attacks, crying sessions, or general fits of anxiety or anger can go to calm down. There aren't many posts right now, but I hope to post more when I get home from school in order to help those in need.

  That was a lot of pictures, I know, but they were pretty, so shh. I've been going toward this light pink/blue pale vibe lately, and a lot of these pictures totally follow it. I love it, don't hate! (haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate...)  I don't really know how to close this post, so just... enjoy your weekend, lovelies!
