Don’t Forget! Fashion is Fun – And Other Things…

Sometimes I get so caught up in making sure I blog everything I want to blog, that I actually forget why I started blogging in the first place – because it’s FUN! The Day 3 Advent Gift (Hyori Christmas hair) from Alice Project rekindled that feeling and I built this entire outfit around it. And ya know what? It was FUN!

The outfit I’m wearing is Rina from Severed Garden and I have been DYING to have an excuse to buy this ,and I thought it suited the poses perfectly.

My skin is the rare Glam Affair Roza from the last round of Arcade. I remember seeing some other lovely Glam Affair fantasy skins out there somewhere, when I was bopping around from event to event, that could be used to get this look as well.

Sagittarius

All This Talk About Pandas!

So much talk about Pandas! From the new WoW Mists of Pandaria, to the cute Panda Hamsters from the Arcade Event, and then the sad death of the cute baby Panda born just last week, I thought this was the appropriate time to post this little ensemble as a tribute to Pandas everywhere!

Have a happy Hump Day!

Where Does Your Inspiration Come From?

Katya Valeska, an amazing blogger and person, blogged earlier about the pressure she puts on herself to blog, and how it can affect her inspiration. Let me tell you, she is not alone.

Writers, artists and creatives in general, wax poetic about one word – inspiration. It can be the wind beneath our wings, and the bane of our existence, depending upon how readily available, or how elusive it is.

As a former paid writer in RL, I can tell you the well of inspiration often runs dry and yet, you have to dig down deep, past the hardened crust, and into the muck to pull out something, ANYTHING to meet your deadline while keeping your reputation as a competent writer intact. You might think now that I am blogging for enjoyment, that the pressure would be alleviated and I’d have inspiration out the wazoo. It just isn’t so, inspiration’s a fickle little thing.

My newest ploy to defeat the reluctant muse, is to keep a dream journal. It’s just a simple notebook at my bedside. Each morning when I wake, eyes bleary and my gorgeous bed head sticking out in all directions, and I will write what ever details I can remember about the night’s dreams and nightmares. Whatever I can remember… it doesn’t have to be a novel. If I remember a color (I don’t care what science says, I dream in color… they’re ridiculous) or perhaps it’s the way I feel… what I call the residue of a dream… I’ll write that down too. Perhaps I’ll find some good imagery to produce a new photo, or the perfect sentence to start that short story I keep meaning to write. I haven’t yet, but I’ll keep on trying.

Our subconscious mind is far more creative than our waking selves. It’s bold, brave and uninhibited. Unlock it and discover what inspiration is hiding right there under your nose, or behind your eyelids.
