Totally 80s

The 80s are back with a twist.  I took this shot of a couple teens at a back to school party I attended.  I liked the color combination originally,but the theme was totally awesome!

The 80’s!

Yes, I am a child of the 80’s.  I remember when President Reagan was in office and ended The Cold War.  I was in love with Rick Springfield in the 5th grade and wished I was “Jessie’s Girl.”  I even remember his movie “Affair of The Heart.”

I remember when Michael Jackson was normal and peaked at “Thriller.”  I remember when Cabbage Patch Kids Came out and mothers were fighting for them at K-mart. I remember Jellies and remember the blisters that came with them.  I even remember UNITS! There were so many ways you could wear them and there was even a Unit store in the mall.

In seventh grade, every preteen girl thought she was Madonna with the fingerless gloves and millions of jelly bracelets!  I remember Mr. Bill on Saturday Night Live and how I used to watch it every Thrusday in Science class.  Our teacher was kinda weird, LOL!

I remember big hair bands and the guys looked more like girls than the girls did.  I remember being in love with Vince Neil from Motley Crue and Bret Michaels from Poison, who have both had reality shows now on VH1, LOL!

I remember going to the skating rink on Friday nights and hanging at the mall on Saturdays.  I remember staying out all day long with the neighborhood kids during the summer.  You only had to call and check in and your mom could yell and you would pop out from someone’s yard.   

The 80’s were so much more simple than now.  Maybe because I was a kid and now I pay bills and have to a grown up.  I am raising my kids right though, they are 6 and 8 and know all the words to “Jessie’s girl” and “Don’t Stop Believing“, which is now my housecleaning music, LOL!

If you haven’t already, go rent, no go BUY “13 Going On 30.” A great movie.  I felt like I was 13 again and even was doing The Thriller Dance along with them.

Ahhh Nostalgia! 

Youtube Obsession???

youtube 

I can spend hours and hours on youtube.com  There are so much variety that you can search anything and there is bound to be a video come up about it. 

Last night, I was looking for a video to show me how to do my little girls hair with a “poof” up front. You know, kinda like the 60’s and I found pursebuzz. This girl goes step by step and shows you how to create that supermodel hair and a more sophisticated ponytail for those of us who are no longer 8 and all this is acheived with her trusty rattail comb.  She also shows you how to apply makeup (Mac seems to be her favorite) to acheive different looks.

She also has a website where you can watch he rtutorial videos, www.pursebuzz.com

I also spend so much time just watching fan videos of the best show ever “The OC.”

I can’t help it.  Call it an unhealthy obsession, but I need my Ryan Atwood  and my Ryan/Marissa fix!!!  I love the early episodes when they first get together and he seems so smitten with her.   But, then again, the Ryan in the final episodes sure did buff up (Purrrrrrr.) 

Watching Seth/Summer together almost gets me choked up at times.  My favorite will always be Ryan/Marissa though. You have to search youtube for “Ryan Atwood Hot” and you will find a fan video to  Ok Go’s “Your So Damn Hot” and also look for “Candyman” by Christina Aguillera.    A definite for any Ben fan!

I need to paint my little girls bedroom this weekend,

wonder if there are any how to’s on that????

Gossip Girl-The OC in New York

Josh

This man is a genius. 

His name is Josh Schwartz, creator of “The O.C” and now “Gossip Girl” based on the best selling book.

After watching the review of the Gossip Girl, I have to watch when this premieres Spetember 19th.  Although targeted to the teen scene, there is something there for everyone. 

This show takes place is upper Manhatten and revolves around a blog-Gossip Girl and a certain gang of rich kids.

  Gossip Girl’s identity is not known to anyone, but this circle of kids rely on her for thier news of whos, what’s  and where’s. 

The star of the show Serena, clone of Mischa Barton, has appeared back in their lives after a mysterious disapperance, no one knows why she left in the first place.  They do know that Serena, once the party “IT ” girl has changed and they don’t like it. 

Serena’s best friend’s Blair’s  boyfriend, Nate, has a thing for her as does another boy, Dan, who she doesn’t even know exists (he’s from the other side of the tracks.) Serena’s friendship with Blair is not what you would call BFF, more like keep your friends close and your enemies closer.  Blair has gotten all the attention in Serena’s absence and does not want to lose it, that or her boyfriend for that matter.

 Dan happens to find Serena’s sidekick that she lost and tracks her down to return it.  While waiting in the lobby, her mother or sister tells her she has a dress for the kissing lips party everyone is attending.  Everyone, except Serena, who Blair tells her she’s not invited.  She looks for an excuse to tell her mother or sister when she says she has plans.  Mother or sister wants to know who and she grabs a nearby shocked Dan and pleads at him to go along and he does.  Dan admits they are going to a concert.  Thus forming the beginning of a beautiful disaster I’m sure.

 Bangs Are Hot!

Boy bangs seem the thing these days and ever since “High School Musical’s” Zac Efron graced the covers of Rolling Stone to appear sexy to the older girls, I would bet money that the teen age boys and 20 somethings will embrace this fad too!

*My daughter and her friends were heart broke to learn that Zac was 19 and they are 7, LOL!
