Retail Therapy Is Real

Retail therapy is a great quick fix for the blues or even the magentas (100pts if you get that). I mean, who doesn’t feel better after shopping? It’s exciting! Just don’t look at the bill or how much you spent right away. No sense ruining the buzz for no reason. Granted retail therapy is a short term solution for a bad mood and has no real therapeutic value, but at least at the end of it you have something to show for your money. Thus, I must argue that it is a far better vice than drugs (except marijuana lol), alcohol, or gambling (especially if you suck at it.) While, it none of the aforementioned proclivities can replace actual therapy, it is a great way to perk yourself up.
There are some lasting benefits to shopping, too. You buy multiple items and you get excited each time you use/wear one of your new items for the first time. Then as you discover more about the items, its even more exciting. OMG, you mean this dress has pockets!?!? See? We all know women love some pockets! This blender is also a food processor? WHAT?!?! See? Exciting! Again, I’m not suggesting you use retail therapy to put yourself in the poor house or to replace actual therapy, but the next time you’re feeling a little blue…give it a try, I think you’ll discover that I’m right….as usual. *grins*

Can you tell I like donuts?

When I was growing up I knew of two donut shops in the whole city. One was a local shop that was really close to our house. The other was Krispy Kreme, but I had no idea this was part of a chain. I thought we had the only one. So, when I saw the donuts in the grocery store, I found it really odd that anyone would buy them there instead of just going and getting them when they were “HOT NOW.” For those that don’t know the chain, they have a neon light that pops on when the donuts are just done which is the absolute best time to eat them. They melt in your mouth and they are amazing! Of course, a few years later I figured out that you can also achieve this “HOT NOW,” melt in your mouth effect, by popping them in the microwave for a few seconds. However, it wasn’t until I heard about Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell eating them in New York that I realized Krispy Kreme was part of a chain! I was sheltered and naïve, okay? Now that I’m all grown up and far less naïve, I’ve discovered that the best donuts come from different places! Nothing beats a “HOT NOW,” which is what I honestly thought Krispy Kreme donuts were called for most of my childhood. However, for a proper Boston Cream, it has to be Dunkin. Never count out a local donut shop or grocery store bakery though, cuz Publix (a grocery store chain) makes the BEST apple fritters! Can you tell I like donuts? LOL

Running Out of Blankets

So, I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about or if I was just going to slap some song lyrics in here and call it a day. I decided to look at Facebook to see if any topics jumped out at me or what was the daily ragefest. Surprisingly, I didn’t see anyone going off about anything in particular, but what I did see…well, let’s just say I’m running out of blankets.
As if my mirrors and my recent birthday weren’t enough, not one, but TWO people on my timeline had to point out how freaking old we are. Yeah! One of them had posted a meme about how 20 years ago was 2001, not the 80s and how that doesn’t sit well with them. Now, I totally agree with this meme. It blows me away when I think of time in this way. So, in the comments I yelled at her and gently covered her with a blanket. As I continued scrolling, I come across another meme about how we didn’t screenshot in middle school, we did a three way call and muted. Well, that was too much for me…now another friend is covered with a blanket and quite frankly, I’m running out of blankets. Winter is coming and I’m going to freeze!!

Play With It

I want to say right up front that I am not an official Lelutka Blogger, so all the heads I have purchased myself, with the exception of two that were bought for me, by my beautiful sisters, Kess and Sassy. However, like many people on the grid I will use whatever resources I can to acquire things as quickly as possible. Thus, I acquired the new Gaia head and played with it straight away. To my immediate surprise, I discovered that this head came with THREE sets of ears. There’s the basic human ears that are already attached to the head. There are the standard elf ears that have become a fixture with the new Evo X line. However, the big surprise was that there was fox ears, too!!! WHAT?!?!? Now, I love me some cats and I am quite feline in nature. However, I rarely go full out neko anymore. These ears are quite tempting, but at my age…well, I just feel like they are a bit costumey for me. Yes, I made up a word. With that said, I have seen soooo many girls wearing these and they are sooo damn cute!! I’m not even sure that this head’s base features work for my personal look and preferences, but this head is definitely a game changer. If you are looking for a new look, something that isn’t quite like everyone else…I recommend that you at least demo this adorable new head. Play with it and experiment with different skins, cuz we all know that a skin can change everything. For instance, I’m wearing the new Sora skin from Glam Affair in this photo, but when I tried on some other skins it was a completely new look from this one. This also inspired me to go have a look at the Lelutka store for which heads I don’t own. What I discovered (yes, I’m slow) is that they have updated quite a few of their previous heads to Evo X. So, the next time you see me, I’ll be wearing Erin Evo X and it will look a lot more like Sady than this one. The moral of the story is…if this isn’t the head for you, try looking at some of the updated heads. You just don’t know what you might find until you try it out. This is the cheapest plastic surgery on the planet, so why not play with it and have some fun!?!?

It’s Fall, afterall

There’s a lot of hype around the grid about Halloween, but understandably, not everyone is into it. Not every country celebrates it. That’s okay. There’s plenty of fashion to go around. Besides a lot of the Halloween stuff is just goth clothes in the spot light for a month. So, its great for your inner goth or even for those that don’t have one. Just grab a different color. It’s Fall, afterall. It’s a great time to scoop up those warm earthtones and super cute jackets. This adorable set from Seniha is so perfect for the season, wear the lil dress during the day while its still warm out, then toss on this badass lil leather jacket for the evening, right? What’s more fashionable than some multi functioning clothing!?!?

Make it our song

Fresh laid concrete
Melodies blowing
Don’t care where we’re going
But the day is wasting
Just keep moving
And take it all in
The rumble of voices
Are the bass to our song
The horns are just on the beat
Honkin’ along
Let’s be the harmony
But no note is wrong
And let’s take the city
And make it our song
Our song
Our song
Let’s take the city
And make it our song

Make it our song

Dragonflies

Ever since I was a little girl, dragonflies have brought me comfort. I remember my friends were terrified by them. Their name alone does seem a bit ominous. However, I was always fascinated by them. Their beautiful quad wings and the iridescent sheen of their bodies almost hypnotized me. Of course, I also thought they were related to fairies. *laughs* The thing is that no matter how bad things were in my life, the moment I saw a dragonfly I felt like God was telling me that everything was going to be alright. While I no longer believe in God, I do very much believe that everything is going to be alright whenever I’m surprised by a dragonfly…whether a real one or not. To this day, they continue to bring me comfort. It’s probably the only insect to ever bring me comfort…lol.
