Run, Run, Run for Love.

NEON EXTREME: the Brady Bunch of the Cape 13 Relay

Team NEON EXTREME is running The Second Annual Cape 13 Relay (learn more here) on May Friday, May 6th - Saturday, May 7th, to raise money for a brain disease called Frontotemporal Dementia or FTD. FTD is the second most common form of dementia, however, there is no government funding, no preventative medicine and no cure. Because of the ignorance surrounding FTD, people are misdiagnosed every day.

Alexandra Sparks, the team leader, and one of our all-star runners, Graham Sparks, are personally affected by this disease. Their father was diagnosed in 2004. For a look into their family's fight with FTD, watch the CNN special featuring the Sparks family here (filmed in 2009).

Please help us fight this horrible disease by donating to our efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward our fundraising page onto anyone who you think might want to donate too!help us fight this horrible disease by donating to our efforts.
And, a special thanks to our friend, our mascot, and our competition, Schneider-face. Love ya, babe!

Aaaand, She's Back.

Bringing It Back - with the Realest of the Real.
After waking up at 5:00 am to the heartfelt and lovely sounds of drunken marital debauchery outside my window, I had the sudden urge to channel back to my Lady Abbelina days.
Over the past couple of months, I have - unwillingly - been pretty blog-less and that makes me really sad. Over this unfortunate lost time, I have come across many a' vintage, sequin, and neon bombshells - making it hard for me to know where to begin...
Since it is now 5: 45 am and I should probably attempt to get ready and go to work early - since I'm up - why not, right? I will make my grand re-entrance back to the blog-life quick but juicy by introducing my two NEWEST gifts/purchases that both gave me that extra umph I needed to get back into the game. As I have made clear in the past, 'I die' for pretty much anything neon, sequined, vintage, or one-of-a-kind (no, not everything, but you'd be surprised).
My urge to revive the passion of Lady Abbelina came first from a recent pair of blue faux eye-glasses from my heart and soul, Beacon's Closet, in Williamsburg, and second, from an ultimately 'fetch' (shout-out to Mark "Prestige Worldwide" Rautiola) neon 4-lens camera from my own Dexter Rutecki, Alexandra Sparks, who also has a blog that you should all check out - right now:
Here is the camera that encompasses so many things that I absolutely adore: neon, non-digital cameras, 4-lens' = 4x the fun, and, of course, Alex!
Stay tuned for the first roll of photo's from this neon rockstar :)
Here are some fun photos from a 4-way ichat/conference/'business' call that I took part in last night - while rocking my blue hippity-hipster vintage specs, part-time:
Come back VERY soon because I have lots and lots more to say/show/share! Happy Hump Day, everyone!
