It has been nearly three weeks since Smash has been gone and I am really worried about her. It feels downright odd to face opening night without her…she is, after all my Pier Market partner in crime. Either way, I am really looking forward to starting off 2014 with some really awesome creators I might not have ever met if it weren’t for the Pier Market. I knew of the owners of Oceania but had no idea they ran a store named Free Bird… then Loordes of London, well who hasn’t heard of that store? Thumper aka PaulCook of Reverie is slightly dark and gothic and it shows in his clothing….and of course Willow of Eyelure whom I discovered awhile back and have loved blogging for. We also have DruWear, Phoenix Collections, Grumble and StoraxTree rounding out an amazing set of designers. I met Mara who runs xXSecond Star through moderating arcade gacha and kept her creative rear around and I consider her a close friend…who knows what friendships will come from running this event? We will see!
Just wanted to show off some of the exciting releases from our designers, shake off some pre-opening jitters and excitedly tell you all The Pier Market opens tonight @ Midnight SLT!

Love actually has been a favorite film of mine for years, so when Flowey came out with these cardboard signs as a free gift, I could NOT resist! Naturally I’m in love with this santa jacket as well, so I couldn’t cover it up with the sign so with some creative thinking, I got everything in the picture. In case you were wondering, I already have fabulous people in my life, my kids, well not my health but who does these days, right? So the “you” in the sign is naturally referring to crispy bacon, in case you were wondering 😛 In other news, my darlingest wifey Keri has started her own blog so feel free to check her out HERE. We were all new once, and I am pretty sure she will surprise us over the next year with her mad skills!

When I am hit repeatedly by things going wrong, I close my eyes and mentally reach out for you and hearing your voice in my head lifts my spirits. For a lot of people Christmas can be a huge disappointment, and maybe I try to fool myself into thinking THIS year, this year will be different and over and over I am always proven wrong, but I remind myself to be thankful for things that others may not have. I have my friendships that have carried me through the hard times(fistpump keripants!) and collaborations with people creatively that has given me something to look forward to day after day, and witnessing the talent of people who gives me something to aspire to (xox smashypoo!) As I roll through the month of December I will remember the ones that aren’t around to celebrate Christmas with me but will never be forgotten. So raise your hot cocoa and have a merry Christmas!

So between the madness of trying to sort out a monthly fashion event for 2014 (which is going to be THE bomb if you are interested in participating feel free to holler!), moderating this months round of arcade gacha and trying not to keel over, I found out from a fellow moderator this awesome event! Bay City Tree Lighting is tomorrow December 8th! There will be many fun things, performances and silent auctions for wayyy cool things…saw some things Id love to have even! So be sure and check it out and perhaps bid on a beautiful picture done by our very own Marianne McCann to support Child’s Play Charity (www.childsplaycharity.org). Child’s Play is a 501c3 non-profit organization offers online communities such as Bay City’s an opportunity to help seriously ill children around the globe during their hospital stays with the purchase of games and gaming equipment. So go on over to the VENUE HERE and support a very worthy cause!

I love Dr. Who almost as much as bacon….so when this tardis with poses came out I was over the moon! Much like anything nautical, I am a sucker for anything Doctor Who related. I haven’t had much chance to go out and go shopping lately because I have had my hands tied building and setting up the new stores in Jenner. I am so excited about this new project that I simply am dying to show it off…but its not quite finished! Almost done though, just a few small setbacks and now we are back on track so hopefully soon! In the meantime both xX Second Star and Wolf&I have group gifts out both gorgeous, and everyone should honestly join their groups as they are stores to keep an eye on they look fantastic!

Ok, confession time. I have been lusting after these shoes for well over a month and now that I finally have them I just HAD to make a shirt to match. So, with any luck, the animal print tops will be out soon both individually and as a fatpack. I’ve also been unable to bring myself to do anything productive so for those of you waiting for me to come out with a blog post, lo siento! Been in kind of a slump lately, but working on getting out of it. So, cheers! got a shirt for both guys and gals @ the outlet, and these will be coming out soon, and in a plethora of hunts in the next two months so lots of new goodies coming out.

It may be a hard thing to do I have to warn you…even when I am not moving my thoughts are a million miles a minute.. That said I do love the speed of this bike and riding around on it is such a thrill. It’s been a favorite of mine ever since I got this bad boy back in February. Luckily, I can now look as good as my bike in this riding getup. From my head down to my toes I am covered and that is a huge thanks to Inga Wind! When the helmet is off I just shake out my hair and apply some of this fabulous lipstick from Eyelure and I am good to go! Now all I need is a riding partner! *winks*
