This One Time At Warped Tour – I Was Charmed By Neck Deep


Neck Deep Boobie Tuesday

It all started with a signing and I Love Boobies socks. I was first introduced to Neck Deep, a pop-punk band from the UK, when we began hosting their meet and greets in the Keep A Breast Girlz Garage. With their goofy wit and accents, I was charmed by them. It was always fun to have them in our tent, whether they were drawing Boobie doodles or sharing stories with us. These mischievous boys always stirred up laughter this summer.

My phone and camera are filled with silly photos of these lads. Here are a couple shots I snapped of the guys (plus Melanie and Ian) during the last two days of tour:

Solid Investment: #GIRLBOSS by Nasty Gal Founder and CEO Sophia Amoruso


“Sophia’s a badass bitch and she’ll always be a badass bitch!” That I’ve managed to build a company where an assistant feels comfortable calling the CEO a badass bitch in a room full of senior executives is pretty amazing. – Sophia Amoruso in “#GIRLBOSS

I needed this book, and I don’t know your life, but so do you. As soon as I opened the cover, BAM, it jumped at me, kicked my mental walls down and convinced me that I too could be a successful badass bitch. I mean, #GIRLBOSS.

In her refreshing, “tell it like it is” memoir, Sophia Amoruso delivers a story about her trek from dumpster diver to CEO of a $100 million company. It’s a book told in a manner suitable for any sort of character at any point in their life. From her “crust punk” days to developing a store via eBay to becoming the incarnation of what Nasty Gal has become and will be, her journey is worth knowing about.

#GIRLBOSSes understand the importance of saving their money, how to wear multiple vocational hats, and the proper way to hire, fire and get employed.

#GIRLBOSSes are able to charge through adversity, earn respect and play clean, not dirty. They wear what they want and wear it well. They are genuine and own their individuality.

The nuggets of advice are plentiful in #GIRLBOSS, but here are a few teasers from the book:

– There are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure.

– Take care of the little things – even the little things that you hate – and treat them as promises to your own future. Soon you’ll see that fortune favors the bold who get shit done.

– You have to kick people out of your head as forcefully as you’d kick someone out of your house if you don’t want them there.

– You create the world, blink by blink. It is entirely yours to discover and yours to create.

– When life hits you with something unexpected, you have to be prepared to hit right back.

– Compete with yourself, not with others.

These quotes merely scratch the surface of the #RealTalk Amoruso dishes out. #GIRLBOSS is a solid investment for those who want to take responsibility of their lives and strive to slam down mediocrity.
