Favorite Song: My Moon, My Man by Feist

Kind of a sexy song. I think it's the breathy voice! :)


My Moon, My Man by Feist

My moon, my man
So changeable and
Such a loveable lamb to me

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go but on

Heart on my sleeve
Not where it should be
The song's out of key again

My moon's white face
What day and what phase
It's the calendar page again

Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please
Take it slow
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please

My moon and me
Not as good as we've been
It's the dirtiest clean I know

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go
There's nowhere to go

Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please
Take it slow
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please

My moon my moon my man
My moon my moon my man
My moon my moon my man
My moon my moon my man

Favorite Song: Not Fair by Lily Allen

I adore this song and I love her voice. You have to read the lyrics on this one! And the juxtaposition in this video is absolutely hilarious! LOVE.


Not Fair by Lily Allen

Oh, he treats me with respect,
He says he loves me all the time,
He calls me 15 times a day,
He likes to make sure that im fine,
You know I've never met a man,
Whose made me feel quite so secure,
He's not like all them other boys,
They're so dumb and immature.

There's just one thing,
That's getting in the way,
When we go up to bed your just no good,
its such a shame!
I look into your eyes,
I want to get to know you,
And then you make this noise,
its apparent its all over

Its not fair,
And i think your really mean,
I think your really mean,
I think your really mean.

Oh your supposed to care,
But you never make me scream,
You never make me scream,

Oh it's not fair,
And it's really not ok,
It's really not ok,
It's really not ok,

Oh your supposed to care,
But all you do is take, yea all you do is take

Yewell I lie here in the wet patch in the middle of the bed
I'm feeling pretty hard done by, I spent ages giving head
then I remember all the nice things that you've ever said to me
maybe I'm just overreacting, maybe your the one for me

there's just one thing that's getting in the way
when we go up to bed you're just not good it's such a shame
I look into your eyes I want to get to know you
and then you make this noise and its apparent it's all over

it's not fair and I think your really mean
I think your really mean
I think your really mean

oh your supposed to care but you never make me scream
you never make me scream

oh it's not fair and it's really not ok
it's really not ok
it's really not ok

oh your supposed to care but all you do is take
all you do is take

there's just one thing that's getting in the way
when we go up to bed you're just not good it's such a shame
I look into your eyes I want to get to know you
and then you make this noise and its apparent it's all over

it's not fair and I think your really mean
I think your really mean
I think your really mean
oh your supposed to care but you never make me scream
you never make me scream

oh it's not fair and it's really not ok
it's really not ok
it's really not ok
oh your supposed to care but all you do is take
all you do is take

Favorite Song: Cracks by Freestylers (feat. Belle Humble)

This song takes my breath away.................


Cracks by Freestylers (feat. Belle Humble)

Leave the past behind, just walk away
When it's over, and the heart break
And the cracks begin to show

And the cracks begin to show

Leave the past behind, just walk away
When it's over, and the heart break
And the cracks begin to show
Begin to show [x7]

Leave the past behind
Begin to show [x6]

Leave the past behind, walk away
When it's over, and the heart break
And the cracks begin to show

Leave the past behind, just walk away
When it's over, and the heartbreak
And the cracks begin to show

And the cracks begin to show

Leave the past behind, just walk away
When it's over, and the heart break
And the cracks begin to show
Begin to show [x7]

Leave the past behind
Begin to show [x6]

Leave the past behind, just walk away
When it's over, and the heart break
And the cracks begin to show

Favorite Song: Walking on a Dream by Empire of the Sun

I love the rhythm and sound of this song. It makes me stop whatever I'm doing when it comes on, it gets under your skin.



Walking on a Dream by Empire of the Sun

walking on a dream
how can i explain
talking to myself
will i see again?

we are always running for the thrill of it, thrill of it
always pushing up the hill, searching for the thrill of it
on and on and on we walk calling out, out again
never looking down im just in awe in whats infront of me

is it real now
when two people become one
i can feel it
when two people become one

thought i'd never see
the love you found in me
now it's changing all the time
living in a rhythm where the minute's working over time

we are always running for the thrill of it, thrill of it
always pushing up the hill, searching for the thrill of it
on and on and on we walk calling out, out again
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/e/empire-of-the-sun-lyrics/walking-on-a-dream-lyrics.html ]
never looking down im just in awe in whats infront of me

is it real now
when two people become one
i can feel it
when two people become one

is it real now
when two people become one
i can feel it
when two people become one

catch me im falling down
catch me im falling down

don't stop just keep going on
im your shoulder, lean upon
So come on deliver from inside
All we got is tonight that is right till first light

is it real now
when two people become one
i can feel it
when two people become one

is it real now
when two people become one
i can feel it
when two people become one

As Seen On: "Pretty Little Liars"

I wanted to share the screenshots I took of Nia Peeples wearing my earrings on a recent episode of the primetime hit show "Pretty Little Liars" I watched the episode on Hulu and was able to capture a few stills that looked decent. Do you know how hard it is to pause at just the right moment, lol?

I was soooo excited when I found out that Nia chose to wear my earrings on the show. Honestly, I was quite giddy, you'd have thought I was going to be on tv, not just my earrings! :) It took months, literally, for the show to air; the waiting nearly killed me but was so worth it! Nia wore my earrings the entire show, in at least 4 different appearances.

Nia chose my earrings that I included in her swag bag from the Emmy's GBK gift lounge. THANK YOU The Artisan Group for the opportunity to have my jewelry in the bag and be found, and loved, by Nia! I don't know if I'd ever have had this opportunity without my involvement with The Artisan Group.

Anyway, I had sent Nia a short tweet after the Emmys event saying that she'd look amazing in my earrings and that I hope she likes them and she immediately tweeted me back that she was wearing them on episode 2.18, which was filming at the time!

Isn't that cool? I mean, what if I hadn't sent her a tweet? and what if she hadn't been cool enough to tweet me back about wearing them? What if she'd gotten the swag bag just a few days later, after filming was over? So many things came together at just the right time!

It makes me wonder if, possibly, my earrings have been worn by other celebs, other places, and I'll never know because opportunity was missed... I have to do more tweeting, lol.

Nia is adorable!

In the restaurant scene, chatting with her daughter and her daughter's girlfriend. :)

Wonder who's necklace that is? and I wonder if they know Nia wore it? :)


My favorite shot!

Favorite Song: Go Outside by the Cults

This song makes me happy! It's inspirational and motivating and in just makes me smile. :D



I really want to go out
I really want to go outside and stop to see your day
You really want to hole up
You really want to stay inside and sleep the light away

I really want to go out
I really want to go outside and make it light all day
You really want to hole up
You really want to stay inside and not care where you lay

Well I know what's good
Exactly cause I have been there before
Yeah I know what's good
Exactly those things night cannot behold

I really want to go out
I really want to go outside and stop to see your day
You really want to hole up
You really want to stay inside and sleep the light away

I think it's good to go out
cause if you don't you'll never make a memory that will stay
I think that you should wake up
I think I want to live my life and you're just in my way

xoxo deb.
