So today I thought I would start a new series called “Six for Sunday”. I know a few people in the retro blogosphere have a “Five for Friday”, so I wanted to do something like that, but with my own little twist. Yes, I know, just adding one more thing to the list isn’t really adding a twist, but bear with me, mmkay?
1. The Notebook
Oh my my my, how I love this movie! It is on ABC Family today, and as soon as I saw the first picture of when they are rolling the beginning credits I knew it was it! How could I not watch? I absolutely adore the fashions that they used in the film, and lust after every dress, every shoe, and every hat. Granted, the hair is not entirely accurate, but I digress. And the movie is the epitome of romantic. I am not much of a mushy person (I was in the military, after all LOL), but I adore this movie. I never cried at this movie (I have never cried at any movie in my life), but my heart did break a little bit, ya know?
2. Mad Men is back, baby!
OMG, I can not wait for this show to come back. It is T minus 3 hours until all of the fun begins, and I am getting antsy. I just recently got into Mad Men, watching it on Netflix after my surgery starting at my Mom’s house and all the way into early February. I even got my boyfriend into it also! He was kind of moping about my having it on and he would study while I watched, but then he started watching it too, and got into it just as much as I am! LOL. I am sure the new season will be amazing, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. I haven’t become this obsessed with a show in a long time. That and the inclusion of Jon Hamm doesn’t hurt, either 😉
3. Booby Trap Sweatshirt
How much do I want this sweatshirt? I don’t think you know LOL. Cardigans are nice for going out and things, but I like sweatshirts for lounging around, and this is the perfect rockabilly and burlesque look that I want, along with the comfort factour. I am mostly vintage, but sometimes rockabilly too, so I like to have some flavours into my wardrobe. I plan on expending the $60 on this sweatshirt soon, hopefully with my tax refund, baby! 🙂
4. Pimps & Pinups Salon
Yes, that is an actual photo of the actual place I get my hair cut at. It is everything I consider my style, and me – sexy, vampy, bombshell, and elegant. It definitely fits a 1950s Hollywood dressing room type of look. It is all black except for the sign, and it makes it look amazing. I really need to go at night one time, I have to see it in all of its awesomeness 🙂 And my hairstylist, Marissa? AH-MAY-ZING! I have been going here (and to her) for months, and I can’t imagine going anywhere else. I thought I found an amazing place to get my hair cut near my apartment in Queens, but wow was I wrong when I went to this place! Marissa has always been my go-to girl; this time I am rocking a bit of a shorter style, with Bettie bangs. I asked her what she thought of me with them, since I was not 100% sold on them, and she said, “Let’s go”. And OMG, they look incredible – she was spot on. Even she was like, “This is what you have been missing!” And Marissa is very meticulous as well – not only does she cut after the initial shampoo, but she spends extra time after she blow dries and styles to perfect the cut afterwards. I never had that before! She seriously spent an extra 15 minutes just making sure my Bettie bangs were perfect 🙂 And they serve you wine, beer, coffee, or tea while you get your cut – can it get any more awesome than that? I think not 🙂

Here is a crappy pic of my cut that was taken by my boyfriend on Hipstamatic. It’s a little too blurry and weird to see the cut too well, but you get the idea 😉
5. This Picture
I look at this and every time I laugh. It’s too stupid and too funny not to 🙂
I have certainly not been getting enough lately, and it has been dragging me down. I am very sensitive to noise, and when I am trying to fall asleep, if I hear even a little tick, I will snap up and it will bother me. I also have noisy upstairs neighbors that sound like they are dinosaurs, and are very inconsiderate. They will stomp around from 7 or 8 in the morning until about midnight or so. Just ridiculous. And then then there are noises over at my boyfriend’s house as well which don’t help me getting any rest, either. I even wear earplugs, and that barely helps. Plus the pain from my shoulder and my foot is absurd and also prevents me from sleeping. I don’t know what to do! All I know is that I need some good sleep, ASAP. Does anyone have any good sleep tips you would like to share for posterity? 🙂
