Your Garbage Style Used to Save the Night

10/01/2010

Recently I was approached by CSN Stores to do a review of one of their many products. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. I mean, have you been to CSN Stores? They seriously have something for everyone. If you're in the mood to spruce up your bedroom decor then you can try out a bookcase headboard, which would be perfect for both reading and snuggling this fall.

My favorite section to shop on CSN Stores is the shoes department. And since it's fall I'm definitely looking into boots, in particular, these Journee bamboo zen faux suede boots in black and these Adi Designs faux fur boots in black.

Which ones should I get?

While I was on my mini vacation last week I undoubtedly had some extra time on my hands. With that time I did a bit of reading, listening and creating.

Read: Death of a Salesman
It took no time to read this classic but I'm not sure I was satisfied with the ending. I came out of it not liking any of the characters.

Anyone read it? What are your feelings?

Listened: Vampire Weekend
My friends and I are going to the Vampire Weekend/Beach House concert in a couple of weeks so I listened to Vampire Weekend pretty much non-stop. Some of my fave songs:

-White Sky
-Diplomat's Son
-Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa
-Blake's Got a New Face
-Horchata
-Giving up the Gun

Do you like this band?

Created: Magazine cover
I found this really awesome site that allows you to create fake magazine covers. Perhaps one day I will be on a real cover, but for now, I think this will suffice. How cool!

What do you think?


If you'd like to do this yourself then just go to MagCover. You have to create an account to save your covers but it's all free.

  2. About the boots, I think the suede could be worn most of the time but the faux fur might be a bit hot? I think. O: So i'd go for suede. :)

  16. I like the boots sans fur - personally, I think it's more chic! AND WOAH. Totally forgot I read Death of a Salesman last year. Shucks. It was for school. I literally can't remember any of it. I don't think I liked it much..

  17. Didn't like "Death of a Salesman" either - required reading for school. I have that outlook for a lot of those kinds of books. They are someone else's classics! Thanks for the MagCover link - looks like fun!

  20. I think you should pick the first boot!
    And I read Death of a Salesman in high school - it's not my type of book I'd like though.

  26. Tee Hee, those mag covers looks so fun!
    It really does look like a real cover!

    Also, I like the boots on the left, but I may be biased because I'm not the biggest fan of fur. It will take getting used to for me personally.
