i miss being a tree, big bitch, and other filth

 Hey, you crazy kids!
The past two days have been so busy and so much fun! My sister and I went up to Austin to see Jack White perform. I've always really loved his music, but I also kind of dislike him (?). My new nickname for him is big bitch. It's mainly because he's so pretentious when he it comes to his music. If I went into full detail why I would literally ramble on forever (or at least like 2000 words). I just realized I have a very strong love/hate relationship with that man, and I've accepted it. But overall, it was well worth it, because he played so many of my favorite songs (even White Stripes!!!!), and he is an AMAZING performer, as well as all the other musicians on stage with him and the opening band, Chicano Batman. I feel like this definitely won't be the last I see him live. Also, the crowd was really chill, which is a huge deal for me because I get very overwhelmed in crowds... so yay!

We waited on this really nice bridge for about 3 hours in the cold to see Jack.

Besides seeing the big bitch* in concert, we spent our time finding great places to eat and shopping. We met up with some amazing friends before the concert. Then the next day we went to a bookstore on Soco, and I found 3 screenplays by John Waters (my real dad) all in one book!!! I'm so thrilled to start reading it! It was super cute, because when I checked out the cashier told me it was perfect I was buying this book, because I look like a John Waters character. How perfect is that?! I almost tried tears of joy. The last place we went to was Buffalo Exchange, which, as usual, was amazing! I got a handful of really amazing pieces (including a pin button that says "housework is a bitch"), and I will be sure to post some pictures of them later this week.

*I mean this in the most loving way I promise (lol).

This was at Spider House cafe. They literally have the best drinks and sandwiches on the planet. My favorite being the dirty horchata (aka horchata with espresso).

Bonjour, dudes!
It's finally warmed up a bit, and it was actually almost too warm to wear my leather jacket! Other than that, I'm just up to my usual business~ Hope all is well with you cuties!

orange you glad, connie marble?

Greetings, cool cats!
As you can see, I've changed my hair yet again! Honestly, I was so torn between what to do, but I saw this color in a magazine and automatically knew that this was the one. The best part is that it makes me feel like Connie Marble or a John Waters character that was deleted from Pink Flamingos. Anywho, nothing much is new with me. I'm just trying to figure out lots of things, because it seems as if everything around me is completely changing. But like most things, nothing lasts forever, so it's not the end of the world.

two tone

Hey, hey, hey!
It has been SO COLD this month, and I'm already over it. But on the bright side, it gives me a lot of ideas for layering and whatnot, so it's not all bad. I've been playing around with new ways to do my makeup, because the same old eyeliner can be boring sometimes. That being said, I've started to do a two-tone lipstick look, and I'm kind of in love with it! 
As of lately, I've been trying out eBay vs. Etsy to see if there's a difference in traffic. So far it's about the same, but fingers crossed one or the other or both do really well! I will also being doing some pop shop events in the months to come. Overall, I feel like 2015 will be the best year yet for The Mad Mod Shop!
Other than that, I've been piddling on the internet watching Netflix and various other videos (I'm so in love with this John Waters' preview for Kiddie Flamingos), and working. I'm trying really hard right now not to spend money, but like always it's easy to say and extremely difficult to actually do. So far, so good! But I am in dire need of thrifting or going to garage sales. Can you believe I haven't done either in a few months??? How am I still alive!?
