The last couple of days have had me cursing the internet and twiddling my thumbs with constant little blue spinny circles on my screen, meaning I didn’t quite get done what I needed to yesterday since it literally took me 6 hours to take a photo! I did manage to finish the art work and get all my links together before time ran out and I had to scamper off for the night with the family, which meant I got to talk to my significant other about the song I happened to want to use for my post, which has absolutely nothing to do with us. I love the song, and it fits quite well with my newest ensemble brought to you from Zanze, currently exclusively available at the 4th Annual Rock Your Rack event. So grab your favorite vice, sit back and have a read, a listen and get inspired to do some shopping for charity.
Sting of the needle dropping on a vinyl
Neon singer with a jukebox title full of heartbreak
33, 45, 78
When it hurts this good you gotta play it twice
All dressed up in a pretty black label
Sweet salvation on a dining room table
Waiting on me
Where the numb meets the lonely
It’s gone before it ever melts the ice
Another call, another bed I shouldn’t crawl out of
At 7 AM with shoes in my hand
Said I wouldn’t do it, but I did it again
And I know I’ll be back tomorrow night, oh
When the new wears off, I don’t even pack it
If you need me
I’ll be where my reputation don’t precede me
Maybe I’m addicted to goodbyes
Another town, where my past can’t run me down
Another life, another call, another bed I shouldn’t crawl out of
At 7AM with shoes in my hand
Said I wouldn’t do it, but I did it again
And I know I’ll be gone tomorrow night
Mmm, another vice
Standing at the sink not looking in the mirror
Don’t know where I am or how I got here
Well the only thing that I know how to find
Is another vice
I absolutely adore this tied bottom tank top and skinny jeans from Zanze. The jeans come in 2 shade packs and you will be amazed at the number of color choices on the tank top that mix and match with the jeans flawlessly. Both pieces come in standard sizes as well as those for Mesh bodies, meaning you will find your perfect fit every time. A portion of each sale goes to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation meaning you get to pick up some wonderful items as well as help women in need get access to affordable screening and treatment of breast cancer.

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation
The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.
