Keep it Copacetic

Heeeeeey! 😀

How’ve you all been? I’ve been soaking up these last remaining days of summer, enjoying the heat while it’s still here, and otherwise just taking it easy like usual when I’m not doing my freelance work (which is going GREAT!).

I just finished a new line of Halloween jewelry for my Etsy shop! Aren’t they cuuuuute?????

It’s definitely my favorite necklace I’ve ever made, that’s for sure! I still have two new rings to make soon that have a pumpkin theme. 🎃

Outfit: the skirt is a vintage item given to me by my mom! ❤️ Coral top is from Forever 21.

So the other night, I felt like watching some music videos on YouTube from the 90’s, to get that warm fuzzy feeling of nostalgia. Collective Soul? Third Eye Blind?? Gin Blossoms??? Twenty music videos later, I had taken quite the journey back to my childhood! And it led me to this 1996 gem by Local H, “Bound for the Floor”, which I’d totally forgotten about!

🎶 And you just don’t get it,
Keep it copacetic,
And you learn to accept it…

Mostly referred to as “the copacetic song” back in the day, I remember hearing this song all the time on the radio as a kid. The cover of the album always creeped me out, though!! I remember when my sister and I would go to the WHEREHOUSE (oh my gosh, how I wish that was still around!) and the album cover always stood out to me.

I’m glad I re-discovered that song; it was like reuniting with an old friend. I think it’s because it has that post-grunge, mid-90’s sound that sweeps me away to my childhood days…a comfort food, like a grilled cheese sandwich dipped in ketchup! ❤️

Don’t you sometimes like to go for a swim in the nostalgia sea? I certainly do! Funny how an album cover and a tune can easily sweep us away. 😄

Well, let’s return to 2019 as I end this post, shall we? The pumpkin spice items debuted today at Starbucks, and you darn well KNOW I had some. Behold!!!! The pumpkin spice frappuccino and scone!

BYE!
