Checking my Closet. I Have Nothing to Wear

Dear Diary:

Why is it when I look in my closet, no matter what world I'm in, it seems like I have nothing to wear.  And yet, there doesn't seem to be any visible space.
I can stand looking for hours and not seeing a thing that appeals to me.

My inventory is completely out of control.  Oh yes!  I watched every YouTube tutorial on organization; I've read articles on "how to..." for control; and I've viewed every blog about inventory management skills.  But nothing seems to help.  I did start putting things in folders and organizing everything.  It worked for awhile.
But then more and more was added and less and less time was spent on arranging it into those folders.

So now...
I just get in there and rustle through what I have - dresses? tees? jeans?

Somehow that really doesn't help.  I'm left in the same position that I started with.  Where is everything?

Good Night for now.

Dear Diary:

Half way through Luna's Colour Challenge and I can hardly believe where the time has gone.

I thought rust was something that described a perfect storm - a combination of metal, a fluid and oxygen.  But this rust is a colour I truly love and I don't feel stormy at all.

Mind you, the morning after a good aerobics workout, I often feel like there's a "perfect storm" going on inside my muscles!

Good Night for now.

It's the First Day of Summer! Really?

Dear Diary:

Today is the first day of summer.  And as I'm looking out my window at a dull, rainy and cool day, I'm wondering exactly in what world is it really summer.  AHA!!  I know where I can find eternal sunshine, warm water and endless white sandy beaches.  And I did.
This is also the longest day of the year in my part of the world since the sun is the farthest north it will be in the year.  Potentially today I should have summery weather and sunny daylight hours.  Looking out the window again...I don't think that's going to happen but it's nice thinking that I can get that type of weather when I want to.

In reality, I certainly wouldn't be jumping in the lake today, or maybe anytime soon.  Give it another month for sure.

Good Night for now.

With respect to Donovan, I'm taking licence with his lyrics:

Thinking About Dreamer...and me

Dear Diary:

Today marks the end of the second year of my life as a blogger.  I'm laughing as I type that as I don't really think of this as "blogging".  All I'm doing is sharing with you, my real life, blended into my second life. 

It's hard to know where I begin and Dreamer takes over.  Where I start, she finishes.  We like the same type of clothes, preferably jeans and a tee but occasionally we like to dress up too.  Oh and jewelry!!  Yes, we both spend WAY to much on that - especially the big earrings.  Then there's the shoe fetish.  Of course a girl can't have enough of those.

I love being me and I love being Dreamer.  Hopefully, you, my friends and readers, know us both a little more.  And in the coming year, perhaps we'll get to know even more of each other.

It's been a fun year.

Thanks for reading.

Good Night for now.

Raspberry Glace

Dear Diary:

When I read the choice for the Colour Challenge  this week, all I could think of was "Raspberry Beret", a Prince song from the '80's.  When I first heard the song I thought it was so catchy.  Here it is!  

Now I can't get this song out of my head!  I just feel like dancing!

Good Night for now.

I'm Really Meshed Up!

Dear Diary:

I've never been one for "hunts".  Not that I think they're not worthwhile, but the reason is I'm not very good at them.  I don't have the patience to search under / over / behind things and I'm not very observant of what I'm actually looking for.  However, I did go on the "Mesh Around Hunt" and picked up a few great things.
I chose to show some of the men's items since it seemed to fit my location, Fantasy City.  I found lots of great women's items too, as well as furniture.

The Hunt is still on.  In most places the blue "M" is fairly easy to find but what really helped were the hints found here

The Hunt has been going on for a few days now so the stores aren't quite so busy, so it's a good time to start.  I still have a few more places to visit and am looking forward to seeing what else I can find.  I actually found this a fun time and really enjoyed looking for all the great MESH items.  

Good Night for now.

I'm wearing (mesh items from Mesh Around Hunt):
Hat: Evolve Greek Beanie
Tee: NN Mesh Men's slim T shirt

Other mesh items (not from Hunt):
Lashes: MG Eyelashes groomed medium (a great pair of earrings from the Hunt found here)
Pants: BND Men's jeans Baggy Army

Pistachio Makes me Feel Peppy...or Preppy?

Dear Diary:

I always loved pistachios.  They have a mild and kind of sweet flavour.  When I was a kid, my Mom would buy them for me but I remembered them being a bright pinkish red.  I found out later that the nuts were dyed that colour to cover any blemishes.  I think I like them better natural.  And I don't think that red dye was probably good for you. 
Pistachios are so versatile.  They can be used when making sweet things, such as cookies and ice cream or in main dishes, particularly in Mediterranean or Indian cooking.

Good Night for now.
