52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Aqua Island

In all honesty, when I saw this week’s color I said to myself, “Aqua, again?” It seems like we have done every variation possible of the aqua/turquoise/cyan/cerulean family. Luna is really forcing me to get creative here, how DARE she??? Well, at least it is one of my favorite color groupings so I am always happy to go in search of more. This week I had fun roaming around the Forgotten City.

Congrats to Madison Sullivan, who wins the Vox Satellite Jewelry set from last week. This week I will be giving away a pair of Natalie pumps from Sherael. I swear, whenever I need a solid pump I go right to these…they come in a ton of colors!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Thistle

If you know your Scottish history then you know that the thistle is the official floral emblem of Scotland. Legend has it that a soldier from an invading army stepped on one when sneaking up to attack, cried out, and thus gave himself and his group away. If you take a good look at one it’s easy to see why it might hurt to step on one…but what on earth was that guy doing wandering around with no shoes or flimsy shoes? Sheesh, man, if you’re going to go marauding, make sure you are properly shod!

One of the most important dates in Scottish history is the Battle of Culloden. Because I have friends that like to make random things I have access to a replica of the memorial cairn that stands on Culloden field today. It was worth a moment to pause and reflect…and mostly to thank my lucky stars I was not born in that place and in that century.

  3. Nicandra Laval

    Nice story and very nice pictures. You dressed so well!

  4. Fledge

    That’s a gorgeous outfit and well done for linking it to Scotland and the thistle 🙂 I have to say, having walked among many thistle filled fields, that they are good at getting in the tiniest vulnerable spots of your shoes, so the story isn’t entirely silly – also they can grow quite tall so maybe it got him somewhere more painful than the feet!
