Reminder to self: it’s my job to keep my store tidy and orderly. It’s NOT my job to clean up after customers who make gross messes- bringing and spilling/leaving food and drink into my store, letting their kids spill and leave their snacks around my store, etc. I Will clean these things up because I have to and because some of them may be safety hazards. But I SURE AS HELL am allowed to be upset about having to clean up gross food messes on the floor, and I’m allowed to be upset when you don’t apologize about it. My store is not a trash dump. It is not a playground. if you’d think it’s gross to go into a store and find someone’s leftover ice cream cup sitting on a shelf next to beading supplies or some kid’s drink spilled all down the special occasions fabric isle then don’t do it in the first place, and keep an eye on your kids/don’t give them the drippy sippy cup in the store in the first place. THANKS.

An older customer came into our store speaking with their friend about how they had apparently worked for our company for ten years in three different states, and then was rude to pretty much every employee they encountered. I just don’t understand, like…if you’ve worked it, you KNOW we deal with dick customers all the time, why would you turn around and BE one?

Yes please, give me the rant about how you hate all technology when I ask you the thing I have to ask every customer I speak to, thanks.

So we had a mother come into our store the other week who let her child spill baby formula pretty much throughout our ENTIRE store. She apparently didn’t even realize this AS I WAS CLEANING IT UP ON HANDS AND KNEES IN FRONT OF HER (because we apparently don’t even have a decent mop in our store right now, but that’s another story). When she finally realizes this, she LAUGHS and says something to the effect of, ‘Oh, I guess I’M making that mess aren’t I? I’ll leave now.’ No apology. No nothing.
But yes, please leave, right now.
(For the record, I don’t mind if you bring your infant/baby/kid in our store, and I know sometimes they can be a handful, but for the love of god, please be mindful of them that they aren’t making a huge mess or wrecking our store!)

Gecko Tea Party - 2011

I had this idea way back in 2007 and later in 2011 I decided to revisit it with much better equipment and props.

This photo set features two female crested geckos (C. ciliatus), Lumina (left) and Sakura (right).  I went the extra mile and actually made them some organic lavender tisane (herbal tea) sweetened with orange blossom honey.  Because details man, details.

Shamefully I realized today I never uploaded these to Tumblr so here’s the set.  I have an even better camera now, so when I can afford a macro lens, I’d like to redo this shoot yet again.

Erevos Aether – Wake the Serpent Not

Erevos Aether’s AW 2014-15 collection, Wake the Serpent Not, contrasts sheer, romantic, fragile textures with armorlike iridescent leather and metallic elements. The architectural qualities of this tough, invulnerable aspect combine with its softer side to create a high sci-fi look that is dark and impressive.

None more goth, kierongillen?  Also paging the wicdivstyleblog

You would be correct.
