Danger De Lux: MIA

I haven’t been posting much lately…or at all for that matter. I started a new job about 2 months ago, which means I am no longer surrounded by pinup dresses and gals, but instead am working 10- 12 hours a day at a gym. As I am transitioning and figuring out how to balance work and life, I have found little to no time to be creative. I am also trying to figure out what I want to do with this blog…if I want to keep it, changing up the content, or just stop all together.


At the end of my day, I have no energy left to try to write about clothing I don’t even get to wear anymore. You see, I wear gym clothes all day everyday now… well, except for Tuesdays when I work at Swish. I didn’t think it would be such a big deal, not dressing up everyday…but I really miss it. By the time Saturday night rolls around, I’m usually exhausted from my week and would rather stay in. I have been making more of an effort though to go out and wear my dresses, that now hang sadly in the closet.


I have also been feeling overwhelmed with life and some of the choices I need to make in the upcoming months as I approach my 30th birthday (eeks!) My mind has been working over time thinking, thinking, thinking!

So, that is where I have been…at the gym, in my gym clothes! And trying to sort out life and what I intend on doing with it. I’m hoping to get back into the swing of blogging things here shortly


Before I turn 30: a list, revisited

I just recently found a list I had made in 2011 of someĀ  things to do before I turned 30. At that time I was 25, I am now 28. Its not an extensive list and some of things are quite ambitious….lets see what Ive gotten done so far.

Here is the list

1. Get another tattoo
2. Go to Japan
3. Go to Greece
4. Go back to school
5. Ride a Ferris Wheel ( really, I haven’t, Im terrified of heights)
6. Pay of my credit card
7. Run a half marathon ( which may eventually turn into a whole marathon)
8. Get published
9. Learn to swing dance ( now, if only I had a partner)
10. Buy an expensive, gorgeous pair of shoes

In the three years since I made this list I have: gotten 2 more tattoos, rode a ferries wheel ( in February at Disneyland), went back to school ( and am 1.5 months away from graduating), paid off my credit card ( and racked it up again)…and thats it. 4 out of 10 things, with 2 years to go! I think this list could use a revision, as I don’t really care about getting published anymore, and I am certain I could add a few things on, like start my own company and move into a new house or apartment. Anyway I thought I’d share this list and see if anyone of you had similar lists.

Also here is me in 2011283504_10150237125735872_6087690_n163115_482323650871_3603314_n

And here is me now, in 2014


How time changes everything….
