Marcy’s Nine Likes. Episode 7…

 

1.  Conditions are perfect! Flight of the Conchords announces they are writing a movie and going on tour.  So who’s your secret boyfriend? Jemaine or Bret? Or Murray?!

2.  Seriously hyperventilating over this military jacket with sequined sleeves.

3.  Have you seen this video yet? Stuck in a car for 7 hours with a singing sibling. Cannot stop LOLing over this one.

4.  Whimsical fashion illustrations... with a twist.

5.  I can’t decide if this is just an expensive washcloth or something kind of amazing.

6.  A cat in Ireland adopts baby ducks. Don’t watch unless you want a melted heart.

7.  Sorry, Olive Oil. Avocado Oil is my new thing. It’s tastier, healthier, and is better for cooking. Now, I’m wondering… has anyone tried conditioning their hair with it yet?

8.  I am intrigued by eyebrow embroidery. Hmmm…

9.  Let’s all dance The Hustle while wearing super duper awesome denim retro culottes!

 

xo and meow,

marcy + cynthia

    It’s so amazing to me the things that Marcy finds online. So Great! I think I like Jemaine the best from Flight. Thanks for getting The Hustle stuck in my head. And I MUST find that man in the road trip video. I would love nothing more than to drive for days with him, it would be so much fun!!!

    Marcy, we agree on everything except the jacket and the culottes and I don’t know about the $20.00 wash cloth and the eyebrow thing looks great but scary.
    I love Jemaine and the singing driver and the duck-loving kitty and I’m going to Spotify to find the Hussle and will dance while drinking avocado oil.
    You made my day!

      a certain person may have already bought the jacket and culottes.

        Uh-oh. Well, I prefer sleeves that match the rest of my holiday-themed sweatshirt and polyester pants that cover my ankles.

    I have to be honest, at first I found the cat/ duck thing to be weird. Then I thought it was sweet, then it made me tear up, but then I thought it was weird again. I dunno…they are all adorable together, but I wonder what kind of ducks they will be having grown up on cat milk…LOL

    The woman with the tattooed eyebrows looks AMAZING! As someone with no real eyebrows to speak of, I understand where she is coming from. I am so impressed that she took the leap and did it…I would be too scared that I’d wind up with blue arches.

    Regarding the culottes, I’ll have to live vicariously through you. On me, they would look like something Cross Colors made in the 90s…LOL…yes I just took it waaay back! 🙂

      Oh my gosh! Cross Colors! Now that is taking it way way back. I don’t know, Merrie, I have no doubt that with your awesome fashion sense and incredible ability to put together such chic outfits that you would look fantastic in culottes. Fantastic!
      I really want to do the eyebrow embroidery but can’t seem to find a place in LA that does it well. My eyebrows are disappearing in chunks and in odd places. Grrrr…. I used to have Brooke Shields eyebrows… Grrrr… Maybe I just need to get a better pencil.

        Really? Don’t tell me eyebrows start thinning too??? I’ve started noticing that I’m thinning around the hairline. I barely have any eyebrows as it is…I can’t afford to loose any. I’d try sephora’s brow freeze. I love it!!! It’s a little fat pencil that you can throw in your purse. I got a lighter color and it’s impossible to make your eyebrows look too dark!

          I am so sorry to say – but yes – eyebrows thin out and get weirdly patchy. I’ve got a couple of bald spots going on. Sigh… at least there’s makeup for it. I am going to check out that brow freeze. Thanks for the tip!!

    Have recently started using avocado oil for cooking, not for hair. But I always use coconut oil for my hair, it’s awesome.

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch August 23, 2015 at 5:37 am

      I haven’t tried coconut oil for my hair but now I definitely will! Thank you for the recommendation! I’d rather smell like a tropical vacation than a salad anyway! Yay!

    I was drooling over that military jacket last time I was in store. I’m so jealous you bought it. Can’t wait to see how you style it! I’m really intrigued by this “military glam” trend for fall. Military doesn’t appeal to me so much, but throw in glam sequins and sparkles, and you have my attention!

    The 7-hour car trip from hell was hilarious. I’m impressed with his incredibly broad repertoire.

    And of course I love the whimsy of those fashion illustrations. What a clever idea! It makes me appreciate all of the patterns, prints, colors, and textures in the world around me.
