looking for luv

Let's just be honest here, online dating is straight up the worst. 
I just watched this weeks episode of Shark Tank 
and I saw this AMAZING idea, Cheek'd
I'm shocked they didn't invest, they don't get this generation of online dating and how awful it is
it just so happens today I found this tumblr of this girls screen shots of her online dating messages and they just really explain how awful online dating is.
(this is one of the PG ones.)

They kept saying on the show that people use online dating because of the anonymity and not being able to approach people at the bar, and while that is true, it makes it easier for these men to say the grosses, most inappropriate things to woman behind the computer screen, because if they ever said that shit in public they would get a drink to the face (or a hand, cause I don't want to waste my drink)

So Cheek'd, the idea is that you get these little business cards, with out giving out your actual business card with all your personal information on it, with a little code on it, and you can give it to the cute guy see on the red line or at the bar or at Trader Joes.
Then if he's interested he goes to the website enters the code and is brought your profile you created, and can leave you a message. 
it's easy its less scary and if they don't look you up its not like you went up to a stranger and asked them to dinner. In this time of Tinder I think something like this could potentially take over the 20's-30's dating world, more people just need to know about it. 
I cant get over how genius this idea is, let me share a little story, this weekend I was out at a bar with my mom and her boyfriend and there was this REALLLLY cute guy in a bow tie (he was part of the wedding that they were having in the upstairs private area) and my mom was digging around in her purse looking for my business card she wanted to give to this guy, I wouldn't let her and we didn't have any cards. that card has my address on it, my cell phone number, my email, etsy, and this blog on it. I don't want random cute guys reading my blog before they know me. If this Cheek'd thing was a known name and that bow tie man was single, I so would have easily been able to walk up, drop a card, and run away. 

I think this just has HUGE potential in Chicago and I would SO SO SO use it and I'm definitely telling all my friends about it, the only thing is it wont work unless it becomes a name like Tinder, everyone knows what tinder is and almost everyone uses it.

would you use this? and do you have any online dating horror stories?

colored hair

I am always so torn with I want colored hair, but I want people to take me seriously, and I want a job, and I don't want my mom to be mad at me, and I don't want my poor hair to hate me....
my mom always tells me nows the time to wear the crazy shit you want cause one day you just wont be able to pull it off, 
she's brutally honest. 
so Im like fugggs it I'm 25 I want purple hair damn it.
 Unfortunately my hair is still recovering from the magenta hair of 2013.

(btdubs- this magenta hair was dyed over my brown hair, with special effects dye, that shit is the realness, it didn't wash out in one wash like other colored dyes and IT WAS VIBRANT.)
now I really want purpz hair
with the dark roots uggh I love so much.
likkkkke these
from tumblr somewhere I think. no idea the source. sorry :(
Im sorry but how cute is Kate all tatted up?

I die
this hair is so amaze

arg, lusting so hard, but my hair wont strip to anything lighter than like a pinkish weird orange color and I really don't want to fall apart like it did last time I bleached it. 
for now I will lust from a far until my hair grows a little and gets healthier. 
(sobbing over pinterest pictures)
