Here's to you, Amy

If you know me, you know how very much I love everything about Amy Winehouse. Her vintage style, pinup girl look, and that flawless vocal ability.  Today marks the one year anniversary of her death at the age of 27, and  I being extremely heartbroken over it myself, can only imagine what her parents are going through on a day like today. Just two months after her death, my dad and I visited her home in Camden, England where she took her last breath in her bed. It was still a recent tragedy at the time, and there were tribute candles, hand written letter, empty vodka handles lying around, (kind of disrespectful if you ask me, given the fact that she literally drank herself to death) and inked messages all over the trees outside of her home. We added our own little notes to those trees, and I proceeded to break the law and reach into her deep mailbox, hoping to get an envelope with her name on it. (Terrible, I know. It was empty anyway) We also saw her spiky blonde haired dad peeping out of the window at us. I sometimes have days where I watch her music videos all day long, and then interviews with her mourning dad that just make me cry for hours and get me in the worst gloomy mood. I can't help it though, I'm addicted. There's just so much passion and eagerness inside of me that wishes I could have helped her in some way, and she'd still be here today. It's easy to get angry over it all and want to spit in the face of her awful drug addict ex husband. He introduced her to the habits and drove her to the madness and heartbreak after their split. Anyway, I will probably be doing the above today, watching interviews, blasting her music and being bummy. I may even have a shot or two in her honor.

RIP Amy Jade
