No Chella

This has to be the weirdest weekend , Ive just been home running errands. I would usually have a long article on the fashion of Coachella. Though I think in this year of growing up , I might be on the brink of just not caring. This apathetic attitude is shocking to say the least. Usually I am quite the participater. Then there is Record Store Day which I've deemed my Christmas , also not so much caring about that . The record store in my area does a half hearted attempt at participating. They don't even have all the merch. The music geeks arent as nice as the ones in bigger cities. Part of the fun is geeking out with your fellow music geeks. My friends dont get it , so they never attend with me. So I stayed home and ordered a t shirt and record online. Maybe I'm in some Pop Culture metamorphis. I pre ordered the new Katy Perry lippy which arrives on my Birthday. The fact I got excited about that is hopeful at least. That my quirky colorful happiness isnt all dead.

This video posted on Facebook last night has gone Viral . This video communacates beautifuly the struggle men and women go through everyday. The time lapsed piece is called " Body Image "  I urge you to go on her page read and engage in the coversation. It was very healing for me to watch the piece and see the stories of the men and women on her page.  As unrealistic pressures have been thrust upon society. The artist is quoted as saying on her Facebook page

Once I realized that naturally, I don't have a Coke bottle figure, or long and thin legs, I began to let go of the pressures I've felt to fulfill an image that our society has deemed the pinnacle of beauty.”

Binder Clips

Most likely you have these in your office already. They are a saving grace to women in need. If you have a wardrobe malfunction, binder clips to the rescue. If you pop a button on your pants, just use a binder clip to close it up. Your hair in your face no elastic, grab a binder clip it’s not particularly comfortable but if you’re desperate it works.

Pencils are being seen in offices less often now. A piece of an eraser makes an excellent backing to your earring.

Plastic cutlery
Just stock up on this you’ll need it.  

Picture Collage
I find this a space saver big time. Gather all your favorite snaps and make a collage . Word to the wise you probably dont want to post a picture of you drunk with a cocktail in your hand. 

I think it really depends on your companies rules, most tell you what is allowed and not .  Show a little of your personality , though keep it classy
