Happy Gala Darling Week!

*le sigh* It’s Gala, herself, she’s soooo pretty! Picture from icing

Gala Darling is an intriguing person that I’ve followed since before she carved her way into internet blogger icon status! I started following wonderfully artful blogs on livejournal
after a friend of mine (who also followed her) made a connection between Gala’s Hello Kitty Band-aids and my own. Goofy, I know.

Eventually she started her own website, icing, a couple of years back and is still going strong!
She has gobs of fans and gets to do all kinds of exciting things, and make a living off of something she enjoys.

I wouldn’t exactly say that she is an influence on my fashion (outward and inward) so much as she is on the same page, yet more accomplished and I adore her for it. She is wonderful.
If icing is something that you’ve not yet experienced, go ahead and take a taste!
Happy Gala Darling Week!

Hero of the Week

=^.^= he-ro

–noun, plural -roes; for 5 also -ros.
a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal
Heroes are something we all have! Someone to look up to is important to me, because it’s something that can keep me grounded and motivated. Because this is so important to me, I’d like to celebrate a different hero in my life every week. It will change up as the weeks go along, heroes, to me can be someone famous, someone close to me out there in the real world, a character in a book/movie/tv show/et cetera, or even a pet!
