I’m Not Worried

1-not-like-them-sm

I don’t make New Year resolutions anymore, but if I did, there might be some good ones inspired by this photo:

1. Don’t be another worried bitch.
2. Wear more glitter.
3. Be more like Audrey.

I went a little nuts at the Quasi gacha machine at the current round of Gacha Guardians. I had to have the triptych of Audrey Hepburn, the epitome of beauty and grace. As you can see, I was finally rewarded. This gacha is full of vintage and quirky wall hangings and photos, a must-have for me. The “worried bitch” wall hanging was another fun win from the same gacha machine.

The Evie Dress from *Just BECAUSE* for the January round of FaMESHed is the perfect way to start the new year. With both a standard and glittery version, you can’t go wrong with either, but if you have the choice, why not go all sparkly? It is guaranteed to turn heads and give you the confidence needed not to be another worried bitch.

I’m wearing it, and I’m not worried.

Future

1-future-sm

While 2017 is still in the future for a lot of you, it arrived here nine hours ago for me with little fanfare. I chose to stay home and away from the crowds (and drunks) this time. I heard the fireworks at both 9pm (the family fireworks tradition) and again at midnight. But I was dreaming not long afterwards of a better year to come.

Here is wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2017. The future is our best hope as we try to create the best present ever.

The Tears of a Clown

1 Tears of a Clown_004

Now there’s some sad things known to man
But ain’t too much sadder than
the tears of a clown
When there’s no one around, oh yeah

Smokey Robinson – “The Tears Of A Clown”

Smokey sang about the loss of a love in this song, but these particular lyrics – and the clown’s tears – can apply equally to animals that are lost, abandoned or abused. In the United States, the ASPCA is the group that is tasked with the humane treatment and prevention of cruelty of animals. To benefit this organisation, Seraphim has put together a massive event that will run from November 6-26. Over 100 designers will come together with circus-themed items with donations going to the ASPCA.

You can check out the Cirque de Serpahim blog or Flickr page for a sneak-preview of some of the items that will be available. SLurls to the two (yes, two!) sims will be published there when the event opens and I’ll be adding them into my update posts on and after November 6.

Start saving your pennies for this event; you don’t want to be the one to make the clown cry.
