Staying In

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.

Staying In

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.

Good use for paper…

I deal with a lot of paper every day, and sometimes I think the best use for it is as confetti. On the other hand, there are other options…

A very good use of files...

I’ve had my share of medical files as well – probably more than my share – which is part of why I like this collar from .Shi (for Back to Black) so much. The journey through and to mental health can be extraordinarily frustrating, and awareness is a huge step in the right direction.

I know I’m running close to closing time, but quickly get over there and learn a bit, there is a lot of good information around. That isn’t even mentioning the personal stories that people have shared, sometimes all it takes for someone to get help is for them to know that they aren’t the only ones going through this – they’re not alone. No, we’re not alone. So… go, learn…shop.

Apricot Houses

Playing catch-up on the 52 weeks of color challenge (I’m sure you’ve all heard that before)…

The top is from Indie Rose – a wonderful store with an awesome creator! Like I mentioned in my Melon post, “salmon” has served me well during this color challenge! I was totally on board with looking at this top and seeing it as a salmon color, but I can see how it like apricot, and was pretty much right on when I compared the RGB values. Funny how what we actually see, and what definitions say we should see, are often different things.

Quiet

The house (that you can only see a tiny bit of here) is from *Funky Junk*. You’ll see it again in my next post as well, and I just love it. It reminds me of home. Where I grew up, you had a great view of the mountains, you were 20 minutes from the beach – and could drive to any weather you wanted. No, I didn’t grow up in a bubble, but it felt like it sometimes. Now that I’m not there, things like this house make me a bit nostalgic – I guess everything is better in hindsight.

This just in: July is hot!

Sunshine? Check. Beach? Check. Cute outfit? Check. Place to sit and wait for fireworks because it is so oppressively hot? Hmm… maybe there’s something behind the next set of palm trees….

Jade Waiting

Sometimes you’re just left waiting around.  It helps, however, to have a comfortable place to sit.

Denim Bridges

Sometimes, you need to sit on a bridge in the middle of nowhere and let your perspective change a little.

Bridging

So, I found this color particularly difficult. Not because I didn’t have a variety of denim fabric/clothing, but because I didn’t have a lot of denim that matched the actual “color” denim. That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, does it? Trust me, it wasn’t easy, but when it came together, well – it’s one of those times when something that started as a style shoot ended up showing more than that (or maybe I’m just seeing things).  More pics on my Flickr.

Part of Some World

On the Rocks

It’s one thing to watch a world around you, but there is nothing quite like getting in there, interacting with it to really understand. You just can’t do that with fins.

Coming Ashore

That first deep breath is always special.

Take a Walk

And you might just be a little reluctant to go back to the way it was before.
