30th STREET GRANDEUR

 
Nothing like a impromptu trip out of town for the day!!!! This week I had to head out of town, and decided instead of driving, I'd take the train and relax. The nice thing about where I live, I can walk 5 minutes to my local rail and head into Philly, and the head to New York, Boston, DC, and New York without ever driving. And sometimes I love it, as I can relax, and not head out into the areas traffic rat race. So I found myself in the 30th Street Station, which as in Philadelphia, the architecture makes for one beautiful station.......
 
huge, huge hanging chandeliers......
 
 
beautiful bronze statue......
 
vintage directory signs....
 
stunning recessed ceiling moldings.....

 
cute boy alert.....
 
gorgeous flower stand...
 
They even still have a shoe shine station, was fun to see the guys getting their shoes spit shined like yester year. The outside is just has gorgeous, with f6 story high column fa├žade.....
 
 
Beauty is where ever you find, you just have to look!!! Back inside was hottie alert #2 with a great backside....
 
Not that it is important, but this hottie ended up next to me on the train ride! Funny how things work out!!!!

THERE GOES POOL SEASON

 
 
Notice anything about the above picture????
 
 
 
There's no one in the pools........

 
Yes dear ones, looks like summer is really coming to a end here on the east coast, with the cooler temps setting in, and the pools are now deserted. Can I insert frown face here?!? I do like fall, adore it, with the changing of the leaves and the layering of clothes, but truth be told, I have a very hard time switching gears from the hot weather and being social, to the cooler temps, which eventually come winter, makes me want to be a recluse. Just cocoon me in a warm cashmere blanket I say. Last weekend was my last time at the Raven pool for the season, and catching some rays on my square cut clad body... and closed it with a huge bang at tea dance. Sure the teas will continue year round, but I go on hiatus till next spring for teas.
 
 
 
Even the Casa du Borghese's pool was closed up and houseboy 18 looked none to happy.......

 
Good bye Summer 2014!!!!

SISSY THAT WALK

You know, sometimes you just have to sissy that walk.
 
 
  
 I had forgotten how fun this song is, It's been in my head for days now. And I had also forgotten how all the girls looked FABULOUS in this video.

GANDE DAME

 
This up and coming queen can be seen in and around Hamburg, Germany. And Nicki is making quite the waves and strides in Germany, with performances out in all the chic nightclubs and festivals. She is also currently trying out for a drag race German version of the show.  Ms.Dynamite has already put out her own music, which sounds pretty good to me! I do believe we could use another "international on our on drag race, and I'm thinking Nicki may be just the entertaining ticket!!!!

BY A HAIR

 
It's always so hard to find a new salon and a hair stylist that one can click with, sometimes a downright frustrating, and stressful time. About two years ago I did a post on that when my longtime stylist was leaving to go to another salon to far for me to travel. Talk about a upsetting time!!!! In time and after three salons,  I did indeed find another salon that fits me and what I look for.  I have been happy ever since, and the stylist who cuts my hair is so cool. I love carrying on and cutting up! I always like to have someone who is also like a good bartender, someone who can tell you about the latest "hot" items or styles, and someone you can have fun with, and tell you the truth about your ideas. The place where I go is always busy, bustling, but Saturday I was over bright and early, the second person in as a matter of fact, which was so nice, as I'm not much of a morning person. Now I KNOW what time to go from now on. With fall encroaching, and after  three years of roughly the same short cropped, shaved sides, look I have, it's time for a change. I have two styles, almost similar to each other, so from here out, it's time to grow the hair out!!!!
 
Love the messy look on top, but the shorter sides on this one.

 
but I'm loving the longer look and the way higher rumbustious look of this one. I may even
let the stubble grow to match the look.
 
My stylist has said  he believes both will suit my facial frame. So not much was cut this time in anticipation. Since my hair cut was much less, I even treated myself to a manicure, which a usually reserve for the spa day I take once a season, but what the hell. And the team that makes all this happen.....
 
 
See why I enjoy going to see my stylist?!?!?

FREAKS!!!

Am I the only one waiting with baited breath???
 
Is everyone else getting as excited as I too watch the next installment of American Horror Story!?!!? I am chumping at the bit for the season to start. Set in 1952, it will center on a "troupe of curiosities" that arrives in Juniper Florida at the same time a dark entity arrives, threatening the lives of town folk and freaks alike. I remember seeing years ago a thriller titled Freaks, that scared the living hell out of me, I've been afraid of midgets ever since, so if it's like that, this just may be the scariest season yet. But I'm already loving some of the fashion.....
 
 
Kathy Bates as the bearded lady and Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars. I hear Jessica Lange will be a Marlene Dietrich like person with a German accent, and owner of the freak show.
 
 
I also can not wait to see how they use the great talents of Francis Conroy. I may need to hold onto my not so haunted teddy bear while watching this side show....or better still, a nice big strong man!!!
