Summer Solstice Celebration!

Hello my lovelies! 
Only one week left until the Summer Solstice and I am just beaming for the upcoming celebration! I decided to make another post like my Spring Equinox celebration one since you all seemed to like it so much. I do plan on having a bit more of a ‘proper’ ritual and celebration of the day since that Monday I have off from work, but here are some other low-key ways that I am going to celebrate the day. I’ve split it into two sections of day activities and night ones because the Summer Solstice can go all night long and I plan on doing a whole cycle’s worth of things. 

During the Day:

  • Greet the sun! I know it’s going to be an early sunrise, but if you’re there to greet the sun, you’ll be starting the day off on the right foot! You can either just lay in bed and watch the sun rise from your window or head outside and do a sun salutation, both will give you energy!
  • Wear your favourite summer clothes! Shorts, tanks tops, t-shirts, sun dresses- even flip flops if you can get away with it! The colours associated with Liltha are reds, oranges, yellows/golds, blues, greens and white! 
  • I’m going to be setting my citrine, clear quartz and peridot stones absorb the sunlight throughout the day- other gems that would love to be out on the Summer Solstice would be fluorite, sunstone, agate, carnelian, and any stone that is green or yellow in colour! But you best check to see if it’ll fade in colour before you set it out all day. If that might happen, then the moon light will work just as well. 
  • For lunch, enjoy a summer salad filled with summer berries like strawberries and blueberries, apples, leafy greens and a sweeter dressing! The berries are a great way of celebrating what the summer will bring for you. 
  • Get outside! I don’t care if it’s for five minutes at your lunch break or an hour long hike like I plan on doing, but get outside and live in nature! Breath in the fresh summer breeze, feel the sun on your skin, meditate and be with nature. 
  • There are so many ways to drink summer in- literally! Lemonade, iced tea, fruit juices, herbal teas like chamomile, rose or lavender will be such a great way to get just that little bit of summer in you. 
  • Today is also a great day to try and interact with the faeries and fae folk. Leave a small offering of milk and honey (or a honey cake!) outside in your garden, in a park, on the outside window ledge, and the fae will appreciate the gesture! Who knows- that could be the start of a relationship between you and them. 

At Night:

  • Have friends over or go out to dinner! If nothing else, the summer solstice is about celebrating with friends and family! It’s about being thankful for what you have and getting excited for the summer, so get together and discuss your upcoming summer plans! Who knows what might come out of it?
  • Listen to music- your favourite music, and sing your heart out! The god Apollo (the Greek god of Light, Sun, music and poetry) is one of the many gods who will be thriving off the activities of today and you can honour them by just enjoying music and art. 
  • Light candles- or your barbecue! Traditionally, this sabbat is celebrated with a balefire (outside campfire), but if you’re like me and lack an outside fire pit, then lighting up the bbq and cooking up some veggie or meat kebabs will be a good way of making a feast and substituting the ‘real thing’. No BBQ? No stress- light up some candles and watch it glow. Bonus points if they are coloured or scented to match the holiday. 
  • Make a craft for the summer- a flower crown, a bird house, a sun catcher. I know I plan on making a flower crown and perhaps painting that day, but so long as you create something, spell or not, it can honour the day’s celebrations.
  • Watch the sunset- like watching the sunrise, watching the longest day of the year come to a close will be an amazing way to celebrate the whole of the Summer Solstice. 
  • Are you of legal age? Have a drink of summer wines or berry ciders- just remember to give either the first or last sip to nature, the faeries will find it! 
  • Decorate your home for summer and for the summer solstice by incorporating some common symbols as decor- seashells, fresh flowers like sunflowers, daisies, carnations, and peonies, little statues of birds, deer, faeries, feathers from birds, and shining crystals. The summer decor, beach house look is always a popular one during June and July so you’ll bled right in.

So this is the rough outline of what I plan on doing during the Summer Solstice! I am going to do a spell that day I think, but I haven’t decided what just yet. I’m thinking a motivation spell or a creativity spell, so I can charge up my summer and all the writing I plan on doing. All I know is that it’s going to be a great day! I hope that I have inspired you to celebrate, regardless of how busy you may be that Monday. 

I hope you have an amazing week and a fantastic Summer Solstice! Love you all and sending all my good vibes out to you for this summer.

-Faye xx

Murphy: “What do you mean you love me, that’s ridiculous.”

Hannah: “Ridiculous?! Can you be serious for once, Murph, I swear-”

Murphy: “I am serious! I only attented this stupid ball because you didn’t want me to see Faye’s diary pages without a favour, remember?”

Hannah: “So you still love her more than me?!”

Murphy: “I don’t love either of you! I don’t love anybody, what the hell! How can you even feel something after all what happened? God, you are so full of yourself, Hannah!”

Hannah: “Excuse me?! You are the one who acts like he is the dramaqueen!”

Karla Faye Tucker was executed in Texas in 1998 for the murders of two people during the course of a robbery in 1983. She was the first woman to be executed in Texas since the Civil War, and her execution was widely publicized due to her gender and conversion to Christianity while on death row.
Tucker was a born and bred native of Houston, Texas. When she was ten years old, she learned through court proceedings that she was the result of an extramarital affair, and the father she had known was not her biological father. She reported that she had been using drugs and alcohol by the age of twelve, and by the age of fourteen, she went on the road with her mother Carolyn, a rock and roll groupie. The duo travelled with the Allman Brothers band, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Eagles. The two women worked as prostitutes during their time on the road. At the age of 16, she attempted to have a normal life by marrying a mechanic she had met, though the union was short lived. By her early 20’s, she began her tenure as a biker groupie and had begun dabbling in small crimes. On June 13th, 1983, Tucker endeavored to rob a fellow biker along with a group of friends. Initially, Tucker only assisted in the robbery by sitting on and subduing the owner of the residence while his property was raided, but she was overpowered, and her partner struck the property owner multiple times in the head. The man was mortally injured, and began making “gurgling” sounds characteristic to his injuries. At that time, Tucker took it upon herself to stop him from making these sounds by finishing him off with a pickaxe. It was at this point that Tucker noticed a woman who was hiding under bed covers against a wall, who had witnessed the murder that had just taken place. Tucker attacked the woman and embedded the pickaxe into her heart. She later went on to tell friends and even testified in court that she experienced multiple intense orgasms during her attack. Tucker was indicted in court along with her accomplice, and was sentenced to death.
The penalty of death at the time had rarely been sought for female defendants, but was still on the table for Tucker. Her co-defendant passed away of liver disease before he could be executed for his part. In her appeals, Tucker stated that she was under the influence of drugs at the time or the murders and would not have committed them otherwise, and stated her Christian faith as a reason to spare her from penalty of death. Her plea was supported by none other than Pope John Paul II, Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi, Newt Gingrich, Pat Robertson and the World Council of Churches. Despite this, she was executed on February 2nd, 1998. Her last meal was a banana, a peach, and a garden salad with ranch dressing.
On February 2, 1998, state authorities took Tucker from the unit in Gatesville and flew her on a TDCJ aircraft. transporting her to the Huntsville Unit in Huntsville, the site of executions in Texas.
Her last words were: “Yes sir, I would like to say to all of you — the Thornton family and Jerry Dean’s family — that I am so sorry. I hope God will give you peace with this. [She looked at her husband.] Baby, I love you. [She looked at Ronald Carlson.] Ron, give Peggy a hug for me. [She looked at all present weeping and smiling.] Everybody has been so good to me. I love all of you very much. I am going to be face to face with Jesus now. Warden Baggett, thank all of you so much. You have been so good to me. I love all of you very much. I will see you all when you get there. I will wait for you.”

Since my second Tribute to modders turned out the be so popular, I decided to turn my first post into a Thumblr-post too. I hadnt started a Thumblr yet when I made this one. .

Here on Thumblr some of the pictures might be a littlebit altered since I have fiddled a lot with my screenshots since then, but the shots are the same.


(I have learned a bit more since then about screenshots and tools, this old ones arent the best quality but hey, i`ll make it original, and I will avoid the temptation of editing them (and hopefully I can find them all… :-) )

Tribute to Modders Nr 1 can originally be found HERE on Nexus (copy of this post)

Tribute to Modders nr 2 can be found HERE on nexus and HERE on Thumblr.


Tribute to Modders Nr 1

I would have stopped playing this game a LONG time ago, but..thanks to all you modders out there I keep playing this game, and I still love it.
I make few characters, but when I make them, I spend time on them. I want to develop a kind of relationship with them…and because you guys have dedicated some of your precious time creating mods that makes our toons beautiful, it is easy to fall in love with your character when you see the end result.

Thank you modders, for making this game fun time and time again. And thank you for sharing your art and hard work with us - we - who are completely and utterly incompitent and cannot make them ourself. (Ok, ok, I speak for myself now, tho, but…i KNOW im not alone:P )

- This is a tribute to you modders -


This must be my favorite toon so far. Frost is her name. She started out like this.

In reality she would be something like this….



…if it wasnt for you guys. And this is even with some mods active!! The horror…
In the pic above this you can see a mod active that can change your toons hair-colour, DAI Hair recolor utility by  Legion of the Living. It is indeed a awesome tool.

She started out with  lovely and skilled Ascendia`s Yennifer-complexion, together with a very popular mod made of Zolariel - New and Improved Makeup For All.


Throughout the game I have tested many different complextions. The last days I have used StepShy`s All about the face - Allisa-complextion with makeup, shown here:


In this pictures she is wearing Viviennes armor…How, you might ask? Easy. You download Borglet`s Live like Viv - mod. Then you can laugh in Vivienne`s face too!



And in company with the complextion I made her eyes beautiful with StepShy`s absolutely gorgeous eye-mod. I have tested a lot of them. Through the campaign I ended up with number 5, wich has turned out to be my favorite, as pictured here:


I have never liked face-tattoos on my characters. But… not long ago the insanely skilled StepShy came through with a new mod: Sheps Tattoo Collection. I could not stop myself. I had to take a trip to BE and get myself a tattoo!


Needless to say….. the modders are a tad better with tattoos than…you know… ahem… at any rate; this pic will explain it… a pic without a lot of mods enabled… Freshly out of Black Impodium, who, as we know, dont like mods.


There are so many skilled hair-modders out there, and I cannot mention them all here. But, I will admidt I got two favorites. Those who arent mentioned, you are not forgotten, and we love you. Skaramoosh with his extremely popular Hair Pack, I have used his Messy Wavy Bob through my latest game. Kadust is my other favorite, who has made a LOT of hairmods. I rarely play male, feels a bit odd since im a girl, but I did one playthough, and this is the hair I used on him, made by Kadust:


I used a lovely complextion on him, created by Tevinterscum. It was beautiful. And to make his vitaar a TAD more interesting I used  RockingAntelope`s Kieta’s new vitaar-mod.
His butt-kicking armor would not be possible without Atherisz`s Trespasser Skyhold PJ Replacer and Schematics - mod. Aaaand how could I possibly equip a warrior-armor since this toon is a mage? Why, you get the Tirnoney`s Armor - No Class Restrictions Remade-mod of course!

An additional little teaser from Skaramoosh`s hairpack is shown here:

And let us not forget something for ALL the hairmods out there; SK Hair Re-texture by Skaramoosh.

Something that follows all your toons is eye-lashes and eyebrow-mods. I have tried them all. My favorites are
Improved Lashes by xStephyG, Lush Lashes by Sho aka Zirael, and Elongated lashes by Ascendia, wich I have used lately, shown here:


There are also a collection of eyebrows out there, most popular is Settra`s, MrJack900 and Shantia. I have used them all, but Settra`s is shows on this images.

I do not like some of the bodies in this game. Elves are to skinny and dwarves..well..yea… Thanks to Custom Body Models  by Aravasia my last character, who was elf, could have a little more skin on her bones! More to Sera`s taste…. Here shown with StepShy`s lovely Dark Faye PJ.


I also got the Custom body models-mod on my human too, as seen here (and on all the other pics, Doh..). Here I am equipped with Sera`s armor?! How, you say? well.. you can get Sera’s breeches-mod  by Iris!


There are a lot of recoloring / tints out there, and now the brilliant mind tirnoney with his Opulent Tint have figured out how we all can change the colors in a easy way! I gotta admidt, I havent tried. I am so completely incompetent that even that seems overwhelming to me. Therefor I have swore to other brilliand minds and used those instead! I have used colors from  Seasonal Palettes by Berelinde, Dragon (and Other) Crafting Material Recolors by Electricfish mainly, altho I have used others too, I got a huge list of mixes, but I cannot remember them now, unfortunately. Here are some examples on both my quizzys and my companions:

I am a outfit-addict, and love to try on pretty things. (I know, girl-thing) I wanted to show you my favotite PJ`s and at the same time thank the modders for making me something pretty to wear!
This is my favorite. unfortunately it is no longer available, so I will not write who has modded it, but I will honor it with two examples of it:


The Dress by jacknifelee - together with Atherisz`s formal wear replacer - wedding dress.



Human and Qunari female skyhold jammies 18 styles by luna1124


This lovely outfit is made by Kalaheria, from her Kalaheria’s Odds and Ends-mod:


And here is another one from her that I really love:



I dont have a lot of pictures of my companions, but I use mods on each and every one of them. There is a lot of awesome companion-mods out there! An example is this picture, showing a lovely retexture of Blackwalls outfit. Mod is Studded Blackwall, made of OriginOfWaves:



Here is a lovely mod that makes Cullens eyes heavenly blue!


Here is various mods shown on my companions and advisors:


There is a lot of other mod I use, I am a mod-addict. Mods, who lurks in the shadows and cant be seen. It is a bit cheat, but..I love Unlock and change Specializations by MxT–ZS. And I adore the influence-mods from Dheuster and Ghostifish. This is just some example, and I will never be done if I should write them all. At any rate:

A big thanks to all the modders out there, those who mentioned here, and those who arent. You bring this game to the next level!

My toon would never look like this if it wasnt for you!

weve-never-been-alive  asked:

Hi! :) I love TS3 and don't plan to move to 4 anytime soon, but I only have base game & Generations (and a loooot of store content!) and I am finally finding Riverview/Sunset Valley a bit boring. Any recommendations on new Worlds for me? I like bigger worlds, but don't have the best laptop. I've seen some mention an Index but all links to it seem to be broken... Thanks in advance for your help! -Faye (Sorry if this isn't really your area, but cos TS3 is kinda dead now, I didn't know who to ask!)

Hi Faye, I would say TS3 is far from dead, it just depends in what circles you mingle. I will post this publically so that my friends might be able to make suggestions for you x Thanks for the Q!

Last time I got jealous was when the girl I hate the most stole my almost boyfriend. Like I never felt that extreme jealousy in my entire life.
