This video was taken a lazy day last week when I had the time to actually sit down and record something. I always look so awkward in videos. Thank goodness this blog is not just a video blog (cringe). I took a few takes of me singing a cover of one of my all-time favorite songs “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles, but I did the slower version as sung by T.V. Carpio in Across The Universe (one of all-time favorite movies!). This was the last take and I am not sure it’s exactly perfect, but I was too tired to do it again, so that’s that. Just now did I realize that instead of saying, “I want to hold your hand” like the original song is written, I am saying, “Now let me hold your hand.” I hope you don’t mind. It just came out that way. Anyways, enjoy, and hopefully there will be more to come! Also, I really need to learn how to work my camcorder because the old little camera I used to shoot this video kind of sucks! Anyways, I am wearing my MINKPINK Basket Case Jumper again from Tilly Boutique again. I can’t get enough of this piece.
I like how I kind of feel like a modern day princess or real life fairy in this rhinestone headband. I don’t usually wear too many things that sparkle under the sun, but I was drawn to this one for no particular reason other than the sign it held up yelling at me, “I’m pretty and shiny, so buy me now!” It does a wonderful job of softening the utilitarian nature of my black as night maxi skirt and stomp-the-ground combats. I like to wear different things that balance each other out; things that pull in two separate directions but bounce right back to middle ground in the end. That’s just me. I am wearing my new MINKPINK Basket Case Jumper from Tilly Boutique which I have been wearing for days on end. I can’t get enough of it. It shows off a more eclectic side of our everyday basics. The woven design is definitely not something you usually see on a simple sweatshirt. That’s why I love it.
Oh, and the winner of the Shop Dixi giveaway is Vivian from Diamonds and Tulle! Congrats Vivian!!!!
