Target Clearance. WOW!

Well I went to Cartersville, GA today with my best friend and her daughter.. We stopped in at Target and WOW! They had trench coats for 75% off! So I branched out! I did it! I got a khaki one and one thats brown (kinda like a brown black mix) with burgundy and camel color accents.. for $13.50 each!!!!! for less than $29.00 I got TWO TRENCH COATS!!!!! I now have my friend Amber in Chattanooga on the lookout for a black one. They didnt have a black in my size in Cartersville! I am making good use of my Cmas money from my mother :)

I recommend you go check it out. they had a lot of cute things on clearance.. I hope you find a good deal like I did!!!!

What are you into this season?

I guess this is a decorating AND fashion post.. I was just wondering what kinds of things everyone is into this year?

Right now I am in Full-on jewelry mode, and it's all about vintage for me. And vintage-inspired. I'm crushing on watches... I used to LOVE LOVE watches. Now that Ive had surgery on both my hands I find it harder to wear them because they bother my scars.. Oddly enough though, bracelets dont bother me.. So when I saw this bracelet on Victorian Trading Company that's made from watches I fell in love.. I've gathered up watch parts and I will post pics once I've made mine. I'm also all about watch parts, doilies, buttons (this one isnt a new thing either), and anything inspired by Anthropoligie's jewelry line. I cant afford their pieces, so Ill be making mine.

As far as clothing, I'm really liking dresses these days. I havent worn dresses in years really, but with the prospective new jobs, Id like to start wearing more dresses. Also, ive usually always stuck to black, red, purple, burgundy, and grey.. I need to branch out a little.. Right now I like the color Camel. I HATE brown. Ive always hated brown, but Camel seems a nice neutral brown.. And looks good with black..

Now as far as decorating, Im LOVING silver mercury glass. My mother bought me several pieces for Cmas this year.. There seems to be tons of it in stores around this time, and that suits me just fine.

So what things are you enjoying? :) Id love to hear.

If you dont wanna post on here you can email me at sassydevilbbw@yahoo.com and tell me :)

Missing in Action....

Whew... I havent been here in ages. I know I've been missing in action, but my life has been crazy. My once perfect house has turned evil on me. Actually it's my landlord who is evil, but I digress.

My air was basically out all summer. My landlord kept sending his "friends" to fix it and it never got fixed. Finally he called someone else and he fixed it the first time.... at the end of August.. Wow thanks! Because of this my house ran between 78 and 88 degrees and my power bills ran close to $350 a month. This is very bad news for someone on Unemployment.

THEN just as the air got fixed, the roof started leaking... on my bed. YAY! Its October, and for the record, it's STILL LEAKING! They are supposed to put a new roof on but Ive yet to see these phantom roofers.

While I was searching for more leaks I discovered that everything in both my hall closets was molded.. everything.. bedding, suitcase, leather jacket, every piece of winter clothing I own.. all my dressy coats... gone.. Because my landlord forgot to tell me there were water pipes and AC ducts behind the walls and I shouldnt use those closets.. Well he neglected to tell me this.. Plus what good is a closet you cant use right?

And during all of this I am beating the pavement trying to get a job. No such luck. Every interview Ive been called for has been in Tennessee, not even in Georgia.. Plus ive gone through several interviews just to be not hired in the end. Im very frustrated. Ive done everything right. My resume is good, Ive taken the Georgia Work Keys exam and made two Platinums and a Gold, Ive got more resumes out there than a picnic has ants.. I just dont know what else to do. I even signed up for the Georgia Works training program, but dont have anyone training me yet. Apparantly you have to have experience to get the jobs. I guess they dont know the meaning of a training program.. So yeah! VERY frustrated..

Add into this that I'm bi-polar and didnt have any of my meds because I lost my insurance (Who can afford $700 a month for one pill?) and you've got the makings of a VERY crazy few months..

I need to move because my perfect house has turned out to be falling apart and my landlord wont fix it.. But who can move without a job? Just call me "Out of Luck"..
