Cabin Fever

It started to feel like Spring for a little bit there, but now the bite is back in the air, and it’s just plain cold again. Too cold to be outside once I get home from work. Honestly, I’m a little worried about what the rest of the month is going to hold weather wise. We’ve had a late February/early March blizzard before…

Watching

What was I doing before I started to sit by the window? Mostly roasting marshmallows.

Surely this isn’t the uniform…

A little over a week ago was the anniversary of the founding of Rome, a city very dear to me for lots of reasons I won’t babble on about right now. It got me thinking that I really wanted to do something with the helmet that had been sitting in my inventory for for too long.  This just kind of came together.

Comfortable

Tennis Anyone?

It is seriously embarrassing when you’re all ready to go, you’ve got your game face on…

Game Face

and you find out you’re on a football pitch, not a tennis court.

Le Sigh

*sigh* At least the outfit is cute?

Plum Fun

I loved putting together this plum look for Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of color challenge.  One of the things that I really like about this challenge is that I have come to discover that what I think of as being a certain color (like “plum” for instance!), can be very different from what other people consider the same color.  Now, I’m not talking about different shades of the same color – there is a pretty large spectrum of what I consider any given color – but totally different colors.  That’s what is really fun to me – taking one concept (in this case, a color name and idea swatch) and seeing how other people interpret it (other designers in what they have for sale and other bloggers in how they put it together).  It is like looking into someone else’s head for a minute…

Plum Fun

it’s always interesting to see what you find.

Road Trip!

I’m pretty good at getting myself to style an outfit and take pictures, but I’m SO not good at getting those pictures into a blog post!  However, I have some really cool stuff to show you – now would be the time to pay attention…

The Plastik is having a Road Trip sale to help pay for gas while Aikea Rieko takes off around the US to check out what there is out there.  To say I’m jealous can be qualified as the understatement of the year, but let’s set that aside and just say that I hope she has a wonderful time!!! Here are just a few things you can find from the sale:

Boho Prayer - Road Tripping Shredder - Road Trip! Valerian - Road Tripping Road Trips Need Octane
I love the pose from dfo! in the second pic. I crack up every time I look at it.

Right, so, like I said before – the sale is to pay for gas, and because she’s super awesomely creative and can read my mind when I need more Plastik in my life, there’s a sale on a ton of items (79) right in front at the main landing point for Plastik.  Go check it out, and if you want to see some of the other fantastic things on sale – there are more pics on my Flickr.

As Promised… (for Germany)

I promised a friend of mine that I would post a German fan look based a little bet I lost. I admit, I took my time getting this done. Not because I have anything against the German squad, they’re actually my second favorites. However, seeing as how they knocked out my first love (England), I dragged my feet a little. Even though Lahm et al were the clearly superior squad on that day, it was disappointing.

So, in honor of my bet:

WC Germany

That’s how I felt at the end result of the match between Germany and Spain…followed quickly by…

WC Germany

It was one of those situations where you’re surprised, but not at the same time. I had thought that the game would come down to defense and, ultimately, the keepers – and, Iker Casillas is brilliant. Neuer is great, but Casillas… I don’t know if there is anyone better. Still, the result left a lot of people feeling like this:

WC Germany

On a note regarding the awesome outfit I have here, the jersey is from Alexohol Fashions, like my England jersey is – as always, the quality is excellent, and I really do love the attention to detail. Also, how cute are the flags? They’re on a tattoo layer from ::Iren:: (they also come as a prim attachment if you’re not using a viewer with tattoo layers). ::Iren:: also has these for other nations as well and they were free when I picked them up a week or so ago.
