The River was Rising and The Rain Fell Down…

James Radcliffe

This post turned out to be mostly about: following a red thread curving into darkness.

There are rivers, there is fire; there is a tiger licking a baby, and a tightrope walker.

Violet Voss 3D Faux Mink Lashes Review, Photos, Complete Look


Hi there! Violet Voss Cosmetics has been working on 3D Faux Mink Lashes: triple stacked and handmade.

We will see how that works out, but that was my starting point for mapping out plans for this year.  The first thing I did was review my wish list destinations, and jotted down the top two on each continent. Then I researched the best time of the year to travel there. With that information in hand, I started filling in my calendar for 2016 and 2017.
