My creativity and chaos now have a home: shaunanagins.com!

Hey all!

After a few years of tumblr-ing (and having a private posterous…and blogger…and working communications jobs…and doodling in my margins during class) I did it:

I bought www.shaunanagins.com.

No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs. President Barack Obama  (via booksfeedmysoul)

Yesterday morning, I woke up to the following text message:
"Hey in a completely non creepy way, what’s your favourite colour? I’m getting my tattoo tomorrow, I’m getting a Gerbera daisy with different coloured petals for various significances and people, and I would like for you to have a place! :)"
Here’s the daisy, my petal is green. Right next to it are the words “Not all those who wander are lost.”
Amen, Niki.  So glad we got/get to wander this part of the life thing together!

The high low skirt.

So I bought this skirt at Suzy Shier on a whim, and I have decided that everyone should have one.

It’s a skirt, which means techically you wear it like this. It’s flattering on your calves and not bad for the waistline either.:

However, after work you can pull it up like this:

Or flip it right upside down and tie it around your neck like this:

Yeah, that would be 3 outfits, plus of course more if you mix and match accessories.

And these skirts really aren’t expensive, you guys! I got this one on sale for $10, and still haven’t run out of ways and places to wear it. Definitely a staple.

I was talking to my mom the other day

Started blaming her for why my life had kinda gone astray

You never taught me to be selfish, mom, or how to let go

You taught me about friendship, but I never learned of foes

I’ve known misunderstanding, but never bitter fights

And one dishonest moment, it can keep me up all night;

She said:

 

“I think that means we raised you right”

 

Thanks for never showing

My hands how to destroy

Never teaching me to greet the day

With anything but joy

Even if the night before

My whole heart had been burned

I guess I’ve gotta thank you

For the things I never learned

 

You never taught my lips how to mutter the word “hate”

And when cruelty hits my ears, well, thanks to you, I can’t relate

Never taught me family could mean anything but love

And you never once suggested what we had was not enough

I’m not disillusioned, I know life takes work and time

But thanks to what you DID teach me, I can handle that just fine

Because I never learned to walk away, you were always by my side

Never learned how to be someone else, and I never learned to lie

 

Thanks for never showing

My hands how to destroy

Never teaching me to greet the day

With anything but joy

Even if the night before

My whole world had crashed and burned

I guess I’ve gotta thank you

For the things I never learned

 

When I fell down, you rolled your eyes

You said “Get back on your feet!”

I’ve had my share of failure

But I never learned defeat

 

I was talking to my folks the other day

If I could be half the people they are

Think I’m gonna be okay

 

Thanks for never showing

My heart how to destroy

Never teaching me to greet the day

With anything but joy

Even if the night before

My life had crashed and burned

I guess I’ve gotta thank you

For the things I never learned

 

Thanks for never telling me to be okay with hate

Never once teaching me to waste even one single day

Well I’ll be just fine from here, it was never a concern

Because of all that you have taught me

And the things I never learned

Anderson Cooper you are my hero.

Nope, sorry anti-gay extremists, you don’t get to casually talk about the genocide of a people and then casually pretend “it would never happen”.

These people….

Okayokayokay, I need a vain moment.
I’VE NEVER COLOURED MY HAIR. But when I found out that I can still donate pre-dyed hair to cancer wig organizations, I had no excuse not to make my summer look a little lighter.
Also, just finished second year University?  Yup. So down to rock the government desk job thing for the next four months.
