Another Dress

Another dress I would like to have waiting for me in my closet is this cute little number by Soda Blu.

Must Have: Dress

This dress has my name all over it! In soft jersey, with sateen banding on the edges, I absolutely love it!

New 'Do'

I'm always so conservative with my hair. I really just got it shaped up. Ummm, Lauren...better now?

iMac Stand

Love this stand for the iMac! The USB ports would be so handy and I love the idea of being able to slide the keyboard under this at the end of the day! It would really streamline my desk at home!

Can I Move in Yet?

Now, this is my kind of place! Beautiful, isn't it? Exclusive Private Residential Estate, located in Nurai, northeast of Abu Dhabi.

Pumpkins fans
Originally uploaded by dreadfuldan

I love Daniel Boud's concert photography. I find I am most drawn to his crowd shots though. He captures the emotions of excited concert-goers so perfectly. This shot in particular brings back a really fond memory for me.

Around 1994, I went to Lollapalooza with a few friends. Somehow we ended up backstage and I got separated. No biggie, I was totally at home there, having fun meeting new people and mingling with the artists. I missed the actual concerts because of this, but I didn't care, I was having too much fun being social! One person I met though, grabbed my hand at one point and led me towards some stairs. he had a surprise for I got to the top of the stairs I felt an incredible rush of excitement as I was practically blown away from an industrial strength fan blowing towards me, coupled with the most intense, melodic guitars blazing loudly. It was of course, the Smashing Pumpkins and I was right on stage with them!! What really got me was seeing the concert from their point of view. The crowd was totally in the moment and LOVING the band! I just thought that must be an incredible feeling for the band (or any band really), knowing they were responsible for these elated emotions in so many people at once.

I also had my picture taken with the Beastie Boys and George Clinton of P Funk All Stars that day. Never got to see the shots though...was unsure what they were taken for!

Ahhh, those were the days!

What are your most memorable concert experiences?

Bikini Season

I wouldn't mind having this bikini one little bit. I also wouldn't mind having that body either! Sheesh, gotta get myself to the gym!

**Update: I bought the bikini to celebrate my recent weight loss! LOVE it!
