A Pause to Refresh

Well, working 7 days a week, what with the regular job (frequently requiring overtime, for reasons I won’t go into here), my regular volunteer work through the week & trying desperately to pound out posts for my 2 blogs. I just need to take a bit of time off, I’ve had vacations from my 9 to 5, not really for my volunteer work & never from a blog. I’ve been doing Orbb’s Fashion since November 29, 2014, I’ve taken  breaks for critical computer problems & one because I just could not make the deadlines, but I spent that entire break struggling to make the next week’s deadlines so I was never really on any kind of tangible break. I feel like I’m suffocating in burnout because I never have a moment to stop & enjoy myself that doesn’t lead to a missed deadline. So, I need to take a bit of time to myself, play some of my games & have a moment to breath. I will return in a couple of weeks or so with fresh inspiration. 😉 Happy shopping my friends. ❤

Fantastical Friday: Spring is Here!

Fantastical Friday

Finally, spring has sprung, though it may still take a month or so for the weather to stop having random bursts of wintry temper tantrums. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited by the wheel’s return to warmer times & I thought it was time to celebrate with a sweet jewelry wishlist. All items in today’s list were found at Target & while I selected one piece based on color alone, all of the others have something else spring-ish going for them, lol. I hope you are all enjoying the seasonal shift & this themed selection of lovelies you can order at any time, though 1 or 2 of them are limited release so “anytime” is probably not that accurate, LOL.

3) Silver Plated Cubic Zirconia Dragonfly Pendant Necklace ($16.99)

Fantastical Friday: May The Force Be With You

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Nerd culture has been exploding with the theatrical release of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Earlier this week I went to the theater with my father & older brother to finally watch it myself. I must say that it was awesome, though I have to admit that a myriad of question have arisen from the story itself. I’m not going to give any spoilers so perhaps we will discuss this again at a later date. 😉 On the other hand of you happen to follow my older brother you may have read some of his hilarious anti-spoilers, like the one where he said that Chewbacca had gender reassignment & is now Chewbecca (omg rofl).

Anyway, I was naturally inspired by this recent nerdgasm to do a little Star Wars related shopping. Again I am a bit disappointed that the major vendors have almost forgotten the female nerd culture in that most offered items are meant for men (or boys) & the few things specifically meant for women seem a little like an afterthought. Despite this I did find a few cool things from Target to share with you. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do & may the force be with you! 😀

Force Inspired 1) Star Wars R2D2 Travel Case ($9.99)
2) Star Wars™ Women’s 5 Pack No Show Socks ($12.99)

Femme Fatale

The femme fatale is a powerful Hollywood trope that has had a major impact on several generations. So in honor of this archetype I’ve put together an ensemble from Lane Bryant. Personally, I’ve always enjoyed a good mystery & there are few characters as mysterious as the femme fatale. We should all have occasion to revel in our inner mystery woman & I hope you enjoy today’s selections. 😉 My links & banners are affiliate links, so if you follow them to do your shopping I will earn a small commission from anything you may choose to purchase.
