I apologize that there was no MMC yesterday. ;97 The interview I had lined up is unfortunately a little busy and was unable to complete her interview on time. Stay tuned for next Monday for a new MMC. ;134
Christmas is such a magical time of year. :sukisuki: The colors, the lights, and the ornaments on the tree are my favorite things. ;122 We decorated the tree and it was just amazing to see it come together. In years past, I haven’t really done Christmas decorations. It was always what Richard’s mother put up or nothing at all (because my family does not celebrate it). ;16 This year, Richard encouraged us to do our own tree since we’re doing Christmas in two houses this year. ;65
I picked out blues & silvers for our tree! My childhood friend had always had a flocked tree with blues and silvers. The colors always stuck with me and so to me it’s a more “elegant” looking tree as opposed to a multi-colored or tree with lots of reds and greens in them. The colors are more calming and seem more like snow and candlelight. ;167
This is only the start of the presents that have started to arrive. I’m really getting into the spirit this year. ;135 I’m more comfortable learning how to give things to others and I enjoy making others smile quite a bit. So it’s nice to be able to surprise them with a gift. ;08
Found this thing at Wal*fart. It jingles! ;164
I finished my first Black Friday shift at work today; a swing shift totaling just about 13 hours. :cig: I am exhausted but I still have to go back again from 8AM to 4:30PM tomorrow. ;94 It’s a bit stressful but I’m doing the best I can to keep sanity and get through the weekend. One thing I did to help was shop around the mall on my first shift’s break and then afterwards just to see some of the 5AM deals. ;64I found a good-ish deal at Juicy Couture but I passed since it was still out of budget for me.
I came back for my second shift and on my lunch break, I went back just to see if the sale had changed. IT DID. On top of their 30% off entire stock, I got a -$25.00 coupon to use on a purchase of $125 or greater. It managed to work out where I got a backpack for less than $80.00 WITH TAX. ;91 ;121
I’m not that good of a bargin-hunter but call me the queen of fucking france if that’s not a good deal. The backpack retailed at $198.00. I got just over 50% off give or take some percentages. :huzzah: I guess now I can say, “WINNING“.
When it was full of stuffing, this thing expanded REALLY BIG. You could probably fit a pack of corgi puppies in it. ;135
Just books, laptop and stuff so you can see (And this isn’t even close to the full capacity)
With my camera + lens & attached hood. This shows a bit more of the width/depth but this still isn’t full capacity. :shock:
It would be perfect for travelling and since I take my camera to every meet up, it would be nice for it to be put away on my back instead of lugging it around on my arm. They get really sore carrying the camera + bags and stuff around during meets that last 8+ hours. ;31
On Friday, I went to an event in LA, co-curated by the fairy-kei brand SPANK!. I carpooled with Oly(Lemontree11) and Abbie both of whom were awesome to hang out with. The event itself was an art opening which will run until the 23rd of December for those of you interested in going. They have a pop up shop for SPANK!, ChubbyBunny and some other fairy-kei brands.
Judy Kuma of KawaiiCarnival, Oly from Lemontree111, and Abbie of Milky Way Hearts; waiting outside the venue.
It started to rain on us , so we huddled under the very small doorway. ;71
Two models for the SPANK! fashion show.
I think the deco’d banana necklace surprised her. :huzzah:
The milk looks like korilakkuma! I just noticed this! ;133
Girly Xbox 360 controller necklace
