The Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS

My girl Olivia Lalonde from Le Poppycock took the ice bucket challenge (and you can see her here) for ALS and challenged me to do the same! I accept your challenge, Olivia!

It was a little shivery at first.

But once I was actually wearing the bucket, all was well.

The whole concept of the Ice Bucket Challenge is to raise awareness for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. You can visit ALS Canada for more info.

I now challenge my sister, TinLiz Resident, and fellow blogger, Eliza Quixote! Bucket up, gals!

Sunday as a Fire Salamander

I’m part fire salamander and part gladiator; part good girl and part noxious weed; part ice cream and part icicle. It’s that kind of Sunday.

I Feel Pretty!

Well, the question was, what does one wear with these larger-than-life shoes from Pixicat that were available yesterday on Fifty Linden Friday? I mean, look at them! A swirly confection of the highest height and most outrageous proportions!

Luckily, this cute double strap dress from Eyelure held its own and is the perfect counterpoint to these shoes.

I Will Prevail!

The tones of gray, pale turquoise and pink will prevail.
~Christian Dior~

I’ve got the gray and the pink going on with this outfit. The bangle came in as a group gift from Maxi Gossamer just at the right time. And I spent some quality time at the Greek Isle Gacha Fair where you can find three levels of gachas: womenstuff, menstuff, and homestuff. Good stuff!
