Okay, a couple of things to get back in the blogging frame of mind…
GSpot Organics is a store that’s new to me, but I really like what I’ve seen so far. They have a mini dress out at One Voice with quite a few options – the fine knit version is my favorite. I was going to wear it out, but it’s late, so I think I’m going to be staying in tonight… man, I’m old.
You really really want to see the back of this hair – it’s so pretty! I took a picture – it’s on my Flickr.
Speaking of, the gift from Exile at Hair Fair 2012 is basically the same as the hair above, but with different bangs (and streaks). It comes in 4 tones, which pretty much cover the whole range – check them out:
I don’t think I need to say anything more about One Voice than has already been said. Except, maybe, that it’s ending tonight – everything is still up as of right now, but you might want to hurry. The SLurl is below.

Waiting around for someone to show up … or a blogger to post (like me) – you start to notice how drafty it is up here in the attic.
I have a weird little thing where I can’t blog if I’m kind of blah in my physical life. Part of it is trying not to use this forum as an outlet for venting my frustrations, part of it is I have no motivation to do much of anything when my physical life isn’t going so well – for whatever reason. In any case, I’m trying to get over that. Not to use this as a forum for venting necessarily, but as an outlet that keeps me doing something I enjoy – because I do enjoy putting together what other people create and taking a picture of it. And just maybe that will help break the cycle.
Anyway, enough of that. Many thanks have to go to Luna Jubilee for her original 52 Weeks challenge – and keeping it going for round 2. I haven’t quite kept up, but I promised myself I would finish round 1, so here goes. I have everything styled – I just have to get to taking the pictures. Aaaand, I have to get to taking pictures of the other things I’ve put together during my extended holiday break.

Remember, in the 80s and early 90s, when exercise was all about aerobics so you’d go and be in these outfits and then dance around to music and you looked ridiculous, but everyone looked ridiculous in unison? No, seriously though, it happened. It still happens some places in New Jersey. (I’m not mocking Jersey, I love Jersey, and part of what I love about it is that some things never changed. These are often things that are dear to me, which is why I love them instead of thinking WTF why won’t they just change already?!?!)
Anyway, rocking out is almost as important as standing around trying to look like you’re doing something so that the crazed instructor at the front of the room won’t scream at you. What? You didn’t have those kind of aerobics instructors? Clearly your workout was not going to be effective.
NB: I am a HUGE dork. I dork out over the oddest things. I know that, I’ve accepted that, and I’ve moved on. If you don’t want to read about my dorkiness over color names, the styling credits are at the bottom of the page, and more pics can be found on Flickr.
I didn’t really mean for this to turn into my just posting pictures and not really writing anything (not that there’s anything wrong with that, it just wasn’t my intention for this blog), but things have been a little blah lately and I haven’t really had much to say.
That isn’t really fair to the amazing creators who make me smile every time I open up their notecards. I’ve been especially excited over Gala Phoenix’s latest faces for Curio, Lelutka’s latest hairs, and epoque’s new line – LOVE. I don’t think I really need to say how much I adore Aikea Rieko’s work. There’s a reason I have a whole folder dedicated to it on my Flickr. I could fangirl over these wonderful designers forever, but I won’t because I like to think I have a little decorum… not much, but a little.

Ever have one of those songs that just gets stuck in your head after reading the name? Yeah… read the title one more time?
Oh oh oh.. dancing with myself… singing it yet? I’ve had it in my head for three days, so I thought I’d pass on the fun.
Sorry about that. More pics, including how I feel after nonsensical posts, on my Flickr.
