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*

Well, here it is, officially Halloween. Now the jack o lanterns will begin to rot, but all the other decor can carry over into the rest of the year in one way or another. I mean, there’s plenty of reasons to use the dark macabre stuff…depending on what styles you like. I personally love mixing the unexpected with the “norm” to create something surprising. Like a romantic dinner for two in an overgrown abandoned building. *grins*

It’s no secret that I love October. Between my birthday and Halloween, how could I not? Even if you’re not into the dark, bloody, scary side of Halloween, there are all sorts of cute bits out there to help you get in the mood. Plus its the perfect time of year to break out colors you might not otherwise wear, like purple and black…or orange…or just go a teensy bit goth. This is the perfect time to experiment with your look, cuz if you hate it or other people don’t react well, you can just say its a costume, right? There’s so much fun stuff out there right now, I can’t imagine not shopping during October. Let’s face it, most of us don’t need an excuse to shop, but having even more reasons than usual doesn’t hurt either. *winks* Today is super busy for me, so I’m not writing a ton. I wish you all a wonderful weekend and an awesome October!!

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!!

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!?!?

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. ~Dale Carnegie
