A Shopping Trip Brings Lots of Laughs

Dear Diary:

Last weekend, my friend Chloe suggested we go on a shopping spree.  I'm always up for buying something new and adding to my already bulging closet.  Chloe got a notice that My Attic at The Deck had some exceptional items for truly reasonable prices, provided by skillful designers.  The Theme was "Pop Music" and as we are both big music fans, we decided to see what was there.  Well...we broke the bank!!

Chloe bought this fun prop with colour changeable walls, stripes and wording.  Of course we tried out all the possible colour combinations.  Every record has several poses and we tested them completely too.  You could have two other friends join you for a great photo op.

I'm a little more outgoing than Chloe so I chose neon hair to go with my rockin' outfit.  The outfit comes with four colour choices for the sequin top.  It even has the torn nylons.  She picked an equally cool dress that is really impressive.  It comes in a variety of shades and patterns and I think I'm going back to pick one of them up.  She was daring enough to get a hair do with streaks [hehehe].  Our purchases were fantastic for a one-stop-shop.   We had a blast! 

Drop into My Attic if you get a chance to see all the clothes, hair, and two amazing props.  There's only a few days left since it closes February 28th.

Good Night for Now.

Lyndhurst Plum Has Attitude

Dear Diary:

"Lyndhurst Plum", as a colour name, sounded so elegant.  I looked at my formal gowns, searched the closet for any demure cocktail dress, and shopped for the perfect two-piece outfit.  I didn't pick any of them.  I decided that this colour deserved something a little more edgy.

I loved this colour combination.  Wish I had this dress in my first world.

A Warm Afternoon Post

Dear Diary:

I usually try to write something significant to you after I come home from work.  I change into some comfortable clothes, open the blinds to let in the sun, and sit at my desk in front of the computer.  Before I put my thoughts to paper, I look to see what's new in the world.  Today, an interesting paragraph, on technology, caught my eye.

Last year, it was estimated that about 33 million people use a tablet in place of their other computers.  To me, that seemed to be a high number but the article stated it was going to triple by 2014.  That got me thinking  - why?

I like my desktop and laptop.  There's something secure about having substantial pieces of computer, for me that is.  Alright, a tablet is only one piece and of course very mobile.  I used to argue that the keyboard on a tablet wasn't user friendly but it seems to have improved.  I guess I'm just going to have to give in to change.  Star Trek has become real!

Good Night for now.

A Day for a Morning Rose

Dear Diary:

The Twisted Colour Challenge combination was very spring-like this week.  I loved the combination of the pale green and pinky coral.  It made me think that spring was just around the corner.

Dear Diary:

Today marks the Year of the Snake in the Chinese calendar so I thought it was appropriate to dress accordingly for the Twisted Colour Challenge.

I've always had a interest for snakes but have never actually had one for a pet.  As a kid, I liked to catch garter snakes in the summer.  They're harmless but when one bit me on the finger, I decided to get a new past time.

If you were born in a Snake year, you are said to have a charming personality.  You communicate well and don't ramble when speaking.  You are very determined to finish any goals you've set and hate to leave things unfinished. 

On the other side, you tend to overdo things.  You rely on yourself too often and won't ask for help as you have doubts about other's judgement.  You can be headstrong.


Good Night for now.

Putting the Penny out to Pasture

Dear Diary:

As of last Monday, Canada has retired the penny from circulation.  Over the coming years, the Royal Canadian Mint will be collecting them for melting and recycling the metal content. 

Why get rid of the one-cent coin?  It was costing about 1.6 cents each to manufacture.  By eliminating them, the savings to the government will be substantial.

Retailers have a choice to accept or refuse the discontinued coin.  If they refuse, they will have to round the amount of purchase up, or round the total down to the nearest five or ten cent increment [Hmmm....wonder if that will be to the benefit of the buyer?]  Electronic purchases, online or through a card will still be billed to the cent.  So I'm taking my pennies to the nearest bank as quickly as possible, here at Seraph City.

It's rumoured the five cent coin, the nickel, will soon follow and roll its way into extinction too.  I've got to start digging through my pockets and emptying my purse of all those coins.

Good Night for now.

Jeans: Pixie Dolls Basic Jeans (dust)
Boots: Shiny Things Ribbon boots
Scarf: Tartan scarf (red) (unknown)

Poetic Spa Deserves Poetic Ahhhhhh

Dear Diary:

Two things happened for me in the Twisted Challenge this week.  I've always loved animal prints so the colour combination fit right into this perfect dress.  Secondly, I have a liking for poetry, not that I would admit that to any of my friends.  So, combining my two favourite things, I came up with -

First -

And second -
There once was a giraffe quite classy
Who wanted to update her chassis
She checked into a spa
To fix just one flaw
And now she's one happy lassie
