Alyssa Moore: Survivor
[TW: Graphic details of abuse, suicide]
You may have heard about an event that was broadcast on Facebook live that happened in Memphis this past May. What you may not have heard about what the ongoing abuse and terror Alyssa experienced at the hands of her now-deceased ex, how Memphis police dropped the ball repeatedly to keep her safe (MPD has a history of dismissing women and other victims, sadly), and how Alyssa has turned her own pain into power. I don’t know her personally, but my brother Walt does and is very involved in the music scene here. Unfortunately, time and time again, we have to be reminded that mental illness does not excuse abuse, and good behaviors or talent in a person does not mean we should ignore their violence.

Yassss. YASSSSSS. Now that my birthday is over, it is officially Halloween Season (in my head)!

FFs is my semi-weekly post of things I’ve found, I’ve loved, I’ve bought, I’ve wanted to buy… Basically my wish/read/look/love list.

 


Chevy Spark
I am in desperate need of a new car, and I am kind of obsessed with the mint Chevy Spark right now. Eeek! It’s so cute! Plus it has a good rating!


Do Your Best Pendant — $24
I also really like the “Bullshit” mini-pendant, but it’s sold out. 🙁


Tier Me Roar jacket — $69.99
How stinking cute is this jacket?? (Yes, I’m aware that it’s currently hotter than the center of the sun in Memphis, but I’m ready for autumn!)


First Date Ultra Matte Lip Set — $18
I’m always looking for good liquid lipsticks, but it’s hard to find colors that work well both with my skin tone (porcelain with very pink undertones) and tiny mouth. I love these colors, and the small size are great for trying out a color before making a splurge.

Before You Know It, Something’s Over
About the author’s struggle with her father’s death. Long, but good read, especially if you’ve lost a parent. I spent Monday morning hunched over my desk, crying like I haven’t in a long time. (My mother died seven years ago.)

Have a great weekend and tell me what you’re reading and loving in the comments!

 

My first Friday Finds Fawns & Foxes post! (Yay, alliteration!) FFs is my semi-weekly post of things I’ve found, I’ve loved, I’ve bought, I’ve wanted to buy… Basically my wish/read/look/love list.


I know I’m late to the party, but I just got my first Stitch Fix. GAH. They really did send things that absolutely fit me. One item in particular had me almost jumping up and down. I’ll post what I kept soon, but for now you can view the unboxing video on my instagram. It’s $20 for a fix, and that $20 goes towards any items you decide to buy. They send you a pre-stamped envelope to send what you don’t want back in, which makes it SO simple. Seriously, go check it out.


Sourpuss Tattoo Roses Line Dance Dress — $61
I may have possibly purchased this for my birthday… (I did.)

Look at this adorable pink house!


Glitter Seashell Bag — $50
Y’all. This. Bag. TBH, the whole store needs to be in my closet NOW.

 

    • My coworker said I looked like a rich bitch after I put on my coat, but my outfit is totally Target except for my boots. But if you pronounce it “Tar-jay,” we can pretend I paid hundreds of dollars for this look.

    • These past two, three months have been a journey for me. I try to be honest about my struggles with mental illness, but I have gone through some things lately that I felt were going to break me. I feel like I have finally come out of the other side, and I feel stronger than I have in many years. Guys, don’t be afraid to ask for help if you are struggling. There is no reason to waste your time on Earth hurting. You deserve to be happy.

    • I promise I’ll post some actual content soon. Life has been insane the past couple months. In the mean time, here is a picture of @buzzcocked and I from the Memphis Flyer. I promise we were not drunk (yet).

    • Making meatloaf, drinking pumpkin beer, and getting ready to watch a spooky movie. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! 🎃👻💀🍁🍂

    • Put a combination of @joico ruby red and amethyst over my faded amethyst, and I kind of love the results! It’s red-violet, burgundy, bright conglomeration of color. (Also, I bought these glasses thinking they were very Jackie O, but I feel more Willy Wonka in them. 🤷🏻‍♀️)

    • Okay, so clearly I need to clean my mirror/room/life, and I’m hiding my face because makeup didn’t happen today, but I ended up accidentally wearing the cutest outfit today because I ran out of black clothes except this dress, and I ran into Target and bought sparkly leggings and booties and, whoops, cute outfit. I’ll get a better pic of the leggings and booties tomorrow.

    • I’m tired of the purple, but I’m not really sure what color to do next. Part of me wants to go back to brunette, but I know I’ll get bored. 😂

    • In Chattanooga for the weekend, and I’m tempted to just say fuck it and go live in the mountains.
