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.

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…
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.

You’re alone now, after getting back from a long night/day of dancing (or some other social activity) with your prince (or princess, or friends, or goldfish) and you feel hopeful, excited, like something great adventure just started. If the story had an author, this is the part after they’ve come back for you, and said goodbye one more time. Otherwise, you’ve just come home (generally speaking, the whole coming-back-to-see-you-one-last-time doesn’t really happen too often) and you’re alone. You’re nervous and giddy and your new adventure all you want to talk or think about, but you also don’t want to talk about it to anyone because if you speak of it, or even think on it too much… it might disappear. You feel alive.
So, what do you do?

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