Hair Love

Hi, my name is Daybreak and I’m addicted to virtual hair. Whew, I feel so much better after admitting that!

I love hair – long, short, curly, straight – all kinds. I especially love it when I find a hair attachment that makes me want to never take it off.  That’s exactly what happened with this hair from Action.  Well, actually, I shouted “Huzzah, it must be mine!” and then proceeded to have to explain to anyone around me why I just shouted that.  (In case you’re curious, it’s a reflex.  I blame John Kovalic and Dork Tower.)

Retro-ish

This skin? My favorite from al Vulo. It was a special skin for The Fashion Garrett. Unfortunately, I don’t think there is a full line of this skin – at least, I can’t find one at the mainstore. If I’m wrong about that, I would really appreciate if someone would let me know! (Or if one of the other skins at al Vulo is a good match, that would work too.) It has all of the great points I’m looking for in a skin and I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t find more options.

I know, I know, I could add makeup layers, but I haven’t found lipsticks that work well on multiple skins – does that make sense?

Note: This image is photoshopped. The eyes weren’t closed all the way and I played with that to darken the waterline. Other than that, nothing done to it except cropping. (All other pics of this outfit are cropped only.)

Well done…

I’ve been waiting to post this picture, and it’s about time too! I hope I get to post something similar Sunday after England plays Germany…

Come ON England

I posted to show off this outfit again, revel in a well-played victory, and also to finish something that I started and didn’t finish nearly on time. Of course, the day of the blogger challenge I flake out on is the last day. I’d love to say that it was because of something other than sheer exhaustion, but I can’t. I’ve mentioned it once or twice before, I think, but I went back to work on Monday after being out for three months. Getting ready to go back this past weekend and playing catch-up has been more exhausting than I expected, although the week has gone quickly, which is nice.

So, what can I say? The blogger challenge opened my eyes to the things that I could include in my blog, gave me the push I needed to talk more than just about whatever outfit I took a picture of this time. Now, I also learned that if you write, people will read, and that’s awesome – and it’s something I should do more often. I’m trying, right now is difficult, but I am trying… I love taking pictures and I love sharing them with people (I’ve always been the person who has something new or shiny and wants to show everyone) I just have to get the energy up to do so more often.

Bloggers Challenge#5: What’s on Your Mind?

Today’s topic for the blogger challenge is: what’s on your mind? Now, is it just me, or are open topics sometimes the hardest things to write?

I was going to put this one off for tomorrow, but it’s nearly 3am and I can’t sleep – I keep thinking about this post, going back to work, tomorrow’s World Cup matches (how I really want to be awake to watch Germany)… Thursday’s World Cup matches – all the usual stuff.

If you couldn’t tell, I’ve got World Cup fever and I’ve got it bad. Luckily for me, it only strikes once every four years (and during qualifiers, but who’s really keeping track?). I can’t quite believe that France lost to Mexico earlier, in a good way, but definitely a surprise! How awesome is it that Hernandez and his grandfather both scored against France in the World Cup – 56 years apart?!?

As fantastic as that is, my heart belongs to England, which led to this ensemble for today (the England match is at 20:30 local time) …

Come ON England Come ON England

The very talented, and also very kind, AlexandraM Guisse of Alexohol Fashions sent me the England sweatshirt after I wore her England jersey in a post the other night. I’ve been a fan of her work for quite some time, and was very excited when I originally received the subscribe-o notecard about her World Cup national team items. I didn’t even know that she had this sweatshirt in store (or I would have picked it up when I got the jersey), so I was very excited to try it on (I’m an England clothing junkie right now) – I think it looks great, don’t you?

By the way, the rear-view photo is to show off the back of the jeans from Action. I’m not sure if they are still available – they were part of a Super Bargain Saturday buy.
