A (hopefully very) short hiatus

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to let you all know that I’m currently going through some really stressful, time-consuming issues with our current living situation, and probably won’t be posting very often for the next couple weeks. Thanks for your understanding, and I really hope that everything is back to normal soon so that I can return to doing the things I love.


A whole new world (of glasses)~~

I finally got new glasses! This is the first time that I’ve tried a new style of glasses since I first started wearing glasses in middle school. I’ve always had small oval glasses with a metal frame (both full and half), like the pair below:

It’s actually been a couple of years since I stopped wearing contacts every day and started wearing glasses regularly. But even though I wore them almost every day, you may have noticed that they rarely appeared in my blog posts. I think it’s because they never really felt like my style, and thus not something that was an actual part of me or my outfit?

So when my last pair of glasses were becoming more and more scratched, and I couldn’t for the life of me find another pair of metal-framed glasses that I liked, I was forced to look for something new.
I’ve always avoided larger framed glasses because I felt like they ate (took up most of) my face. But I just fell in love with the colors of this purple and pink pair that I just had to take a leap of faith and give them a try.
And I think I actually really like them! I found them on a glasses site called Firmoo, and used their code WELCOME to get 20% off and free shipping on my order. They fit well, don’t make me dizzy (this happens every so often with glasses I order online), and most importantly, match my hair! :]

I don’t know if this is the perfect style of glasses for me, but I do know that I’m happier with them than my old glasses~ Maybe I’ll even wear them on a night out, or let them show up in some outfit posts in the future. ♡
Just to clarify, this post was not sponsored in any way - I needed glasses and I bought them myself. :]

I Love my Friends and Sponsors! ♡ ♡ ♡
As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to realize more and more just how lucky I am to have so many uniquely creative people in my life. Being around these people, keeping in touch with far away friends, and knowing them online has had such a positive, noticeable impact on my own inspiration, drive and productivity.
That being said, I’m so glad that I have the opportunity to share some amazing people with you today! I recently revamped the ad system on my blog, and now it’s easier than ever for me to work with both new and familiar creatives. ♡
Creature of Habit

Creature of Habit is run by a lovely lady named Vanessa Walton. Her handmade floral crowns and accessories instantly bring a little bit of magic into your life. In person, you can tell her pieces are made with the utmost care - almost as though she breathes life into them as they’re created. Vanessa also does custom costume and accessory commissions, so if you ever need to be a fairy, mermaid or princess, I’d highly recommend considering Creature of Habit. :] (shop, facebook)
Doll.jpg

Doll.jpg is run by Kellie and is perfect for your street chic (with a bit of edge) needs. All of her pieces are handmade or hand-altered and will automatically bring any outfit to the next level. She’s an amazingly productive lady who often showcases her work as a RAW Artist. Oh, and one of her specialties is creating any (and I really mean any!) type of hair bow imaginable, so go check her out - she even does customs! (shop, facebook)
Geeky Glamorous

There’s so much I could say about Geeky Glamorous! The owner Mandie is your go-to girl for all things geek, and honestly one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met! Like so many people in LA, she does a million different things (and does them well). She cosplays, plays ALL the video games, and even runs the Geeky Glamorous accessory line. You may have even seen her this week on the SyFy channel when she got married on the pilot episode of “My Big Fat Geek Wedding!” (blog, shop, facebook)
Messy Pink

Messy Pink always brings a smile to my face! She’s so adorably sweet and always has on a cute, coordinated (and probably pastel) outfit! ♡ The Messy Pink Etsy shop is filled with the perfect mixture of pastels, kawaiiness, and a touch of geekiness! Teapot headbands, unicorn necklaces, and strawberry bracelets - just looking at everything makes me feel like I want to throw a magical tea party! (shop, facebook)
Miss Alphabet

Miss Alphabet is the amazing combination of fairy kei, the 80s and a lot of color! What I love about Miss Alphabet is that she makes it her goal to help any and every woman feel and look good, no matter her shape and size. All her clothing and accessories are handmade and come in a variety of sizes. I always enjoy seeing the cute new designs she comes up with. Honestly, I can’t imagine being anything but happy if I was wearing a Miss Alphabet piece! (shop, facebook)
Noraneko Alley

Noraneko Alley is run by Maki, a super talented fiber artist and illustrator. It’s the perfect place to find a colorful little gift, but don’t let size fool you - each piece is carefully crafted with attention to every adorable detail. You can find a variety of items at Noraneko Alley, from hand-cut Pokemon stickers to upcycled rupee-shaped crayons (and lots and lots of donuts)! (shop, tumblr)
I’m so glad I had this opportunity to share and talk about all of these creative people! If you’re interested in placing an ad with me, please feel free to check out my Friends and Sponsors page. ♡ I can’t guarantee that I will write about each ad in a blog post, but I do hope to help by bringing traffic to your site. 
And for those of you who read until the end, I have a special surprise!  ♡ I am offering a free, small ad space for 30 days to the first two people who use the code “FREEPIXIE" through my blog. You can read through the info and place an ad on this page. :]

Question:

I saw you on my big fat geek wedding!!! :D
Anonymous

Haha yay!! We’ve all been so excited to blog about it but weren’t allowed to until it aired. Mandie (aka Geeky Glamorous) and Julian are such a lovely couple, and I’m so glad to have been a part of their amazing and well-deserved day!

I will definitely be posting a blog about the whole thing soon, so stay tuned!~~


Outfit: Living that Faux Fur Life
Have you just really had the urge to dress up for no particular reason? Well, that’s what I did last night after work~ I’ve been feeling a little blah lately, and what better way to solve that then making yourself feel pretty?~

I’ve been listening to a lot of Iggy Azalea this week, so that may have influenced my fashion choices a little bit, haha. I also wanted to try wearing things that I haven’t really gotten the chance to wear out yet. :]

I’m so in love with this faux fur jacket! Nic, my Knickerocker boss, gifted it to me after I mentioned how I’ve been trying to find one on ebay the past couple of weeks. She handmade it, can you believe it?
I’m still trying to decide whether or not I want to dye it a pastel color… A soft pink, mint or lavender would be amazingg.

Outfit Breakdown:
Faux Fur Jacket: Handmade by Nic, my Knickerocker boss
Sequin Bodysuit: $5 at the Unif sample sale a few months ago
Rhinestone Choker: Dolls Kill
Iridescent Bracelets: Forever21
Holographic Heels: Purchased online (I can’t quite remember from which store at the moment..) and altered by me


I feel so lucky to have as awesome a boyfriend as Mike, who will help me take photos whenever I need them. ♡ What would I do without him? ;p
