Liberty of London

I've been a MAC fangirl for a little over a year now.  My sister in law got me into it, and she's been a MAC rep for over 10 yrs (I forget the exact number).  I'm super excited about their next unveiling of Liberty of London, though in all honesty I get excited over every unveiling.  Lucky me, I get to go to one of the launch parties (squeal!)! 

So I have a question for you fancy British ladies, the age old question that never has the right answer -- what should I wear?!!  My first instinct is to buy something from Liberty of London itself, but the price tag says I can find something similar here in Portland.  We have a lot of boutique shops, and PLENTY of secondhand stores to piece something together.  What's trendy over there?    What says "I am fabulous!" What says I WANT TO BE BRITISH!

Fallout Cosplay

I don't know what the gamer scene is in the UK, but I'm a huge video game nerd.  I posted last time about a fellow blogger Gamer Grrlz.  This time I want to share something I did.  My soon-to-be-husband made a real life "shishkebab" (shishkabob, shiskabab, I don't care how it's spelled), which is a flaming sword for you non-gamers.  No, it doesn't actually flame up.  But it's still awesome.  My part?  The lovely wastelander, of course!  All pictures are PG -- there's some cleavage, but nothing to worry about (I've had worse pop up ads on otherwise "safe" sites).

Even if you're not a gamer nerd, I encourage anyone who's interested in steampunk (or diesel punk) or anything similar to look through the album.  The pictures also include our modded goggles and an "atomic ray obliviator" from my father in law (we get the whole family in on the ridiculous).

Here's a teaser.  Click here to see the full album!
