Teeange Recollection: Magazine Walls

I was twirling through the latest pages of People Style Watch, when I came upon a full, 2 paged ad. It was for a "Live In Levi's" campaign in particular, with a precious line that says "Fall Head Over Heels". It shows an adorably lovey and giddy girl and guy, in a cute pose to compliment the expression:



What occurred to me was not only the cuteness I saw now, but the appeal this would have had for me from ages 12-17 as well. I definitely loved having insane amounts of magazine pages sprawled across my walls. The more, the merrier, and by merrier I mean every square inch was covered. Pac Sun, Calvin Klein, and Express were among my faves. The seemingly quirkier the expression on an ad was, the more likely it would end up part of my woman made wallpaper. All this, of course, would have been lonely without JTT and Joseph Gordon Levitt, along side the original creations of my friends in the form of quote boards.

Quote boards, both ripped whole from magazines and spelled out letter by letter, were my other choice of artistic additions. Inside jokes would be listed mostly. My friends and I adored making these. This was also something that carried on to my very first apartment with three of my closet friends at the ripe age of 20. I'm sure you can only imagine what four fun loving girls from a small town, now living in a huge metropolis of both a college town/downtown night life, found humorous.

All this said, seeing the ad today transported me back to half my life ago, like no time had passed at all. It was a weirdly fun flashback. Who knows, maybe I'll be pulling from my vintage files for decor inspiration now.

What takes you back to something you did as a teenager?

Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
