I’m going to be at the NYC party and I think I’m going to sing some songs and we can drink some free drinks and talk about our Breaking Bad future episode theories. SEE YOU THERE, Y’ALL.

As of September 1st, the “F*ck! I’m in My Twenties” book is officially out in stores!

You can find it at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Urban Outfitters, and indie bookstores all over. My original idea for FIIMT was for it to be a zine that I would print out at Kinko’s and give away to my friends, so all of this is pretty wild.

Thank you to those of you who have been following this blog from the beginning and those of you who hopped on board along the way and those of you who are just tuning in. Thank you to the people who have liked and reblogged and tweeted and facebooked and written articles and emailed and talked to your friends and sent thoughts via carrier pigeons and ESP and messages in bottles about “Fuck! I’m in My Twenties”.

This support has profoundly affected my life personally and professionally. If you dig the book, I hope you continue to spread the word! If you don’t dig the book, then…well…yeah, this is awkward.

ANYWAY.

The winners of the book giveaways will be announced soon on the respective blogs: Create This Look for Less, Backpack Block Party, and Dave Seger’s blog.

Also, there are two cool FIIMT events coming up in the next month. One in London (which I won’t be at) and one in NYC (which I will be at!!). I figured I’d have the info for that in its own post so as not to make this one any more of a novella than it already is…although in the time it took to explain this, I probably could have laid out all the details for the events. eogmhflkgmht I’m terrible.

THANK YOU AGAIN!

Well hello and welcome to the third and final stop on the FUCK! I’m in My Twenties blog tour. Emma Koenig started off on tuesday at Create This Look For Less and yesterday at Backpack Block Party! Now she’s here? Or I’m here? We’re all here together, on the internet.

In promotion of Emma’s rad new book, F*CK! I’m in My Twenties, I made this new MIX which you can DOWNLOAD and enjoy.

“ALL I KNOW’S THAT I DON’T KNOW” MIX 
30 songs for your twenties and beyond!
(DOWNLOAD NOW) 

There’re a few thematic brush strokes going on here, but really these are just a bunch of songs I like - some new and some old, a lot of female vocalists. Some of them remind me of that exciting mid-twenties scramble for purpose, love, career, and understanding. Some remind me of dating woes. And some are just songs I like. [Tracklist]

And hey: Re-blog this post to win a free copy of the book F*ck! I’m in My Twenties along with a USB drive with bunch of various dumb mixes I’ve made, thrown in for fun!  *A winner will be randomly selected. 

Download the “All I Know’s That I Don’t Know” mix here
(30 tracks, 120.6 MB)!

THE THIRD AND FINAL STOP ON THE FIIMT BLOG TOUR!!

EDIT: The link for this awesome mix expired because so many people downloaded it! Here is the new link!

Welcome to the second stop on the F*CK! I’m in My Twenties blog tour! Yesterday (8/28), Emma Koenig made her first stop on Create This Look For Less and tomorrow (8/30), she’ll be making her last stop on Dave Seger’s Blog.

It would be impossible to go on a blog tour without a backpack, so I asked Emma to share the qualities that make up the backpack of her dreams.

Emma also answered some questions for me about her starry JanSport backpack over on The Huffington Post.

Emma’s book F*CK! I’m in My Twenties is the ideal companion to keep in your backpack.  Re-blog this post for a chance to win a free copy of the book along with a very special backpack! A winner will be selected at random.

THE SECOND STOP ON THE FIIMT BLOG TOUR!

SOME OF FIIMT’S ESSENTIAL BEAUTY ITEMS:

Make-up Removing Wipes- For when you’re too exhausted from hating everything to actually wash your face

- CTLFL Tip: always wash your face at night to remove oil and dirt that has sunk into your pores.

Concealer- To hide the fact that you were up all night looking at your ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend’s facebook photos

- CTLFL Tip: Concealer is used to hide any imperfections on the skin and dark circles under the eyes.  Concealer can also be used as a lip/eye primer.

Waterproof Mascara- If you’re going to dissolve into uncontrollable fits of crying at the worst possible moments, you might as well not have messy black squiggles dripping down your face

-CTLFL Tip: Best way to remove waterproof mascara is by massaging Vaseline or petroleum jelly into your lashes and washing away with water.  Be very careful and use a light touch, you don’t want to harm your lashes.

Glitter Nail Polish- Because even if everything around you is falling apart, at least you can take comfort in having kickass nails!

-CTLFL Tip: Apply a base coat on your nails before applying glitter nail polish to protect the top layer of your nails.

FIRST STOP ON THE FIIMT BLOG TOUR!!
