Your Garbage Style Used to Save the Night


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
-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. :)

  15. Ooh, I LOVE the Journee boots; I would go with those. And yayay for Vampire Weekend - they are one of my favorite bands EVER! You look utterly adorable on the magazine cover; I like the idea of being able to add your own picture to a magazine cover. so much fun!! :)

  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!

  18. The boots are WOW. they're freakin' hot!
    and haha I know about those websites.. damn cool! =)

  19. Nice post ! Those magazine covers are so cute . Haha .

  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.

  21. Great choices. I vote the tie up furry boots for sure. So cute.

  22. Must check out the site to create fake mag covers- what a cool idea!

  23. I'd go for the first boots. :)

  24. I think I much prefer the suede boots:)


  25. mag coverrr.<33333
    thats so amazing you deserve it lover.<3

  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.
