Sick of using trite filters and childish fonts to doll up your pics? Get edgy with Tangent.

Elixr, so you and your mermaid can enjoy a fancy cocktail in good company

Nothing makes this cowgirl feel fancier than putting on a little cocktail dress and sipping at a fancy cocktail. Preferably with a mermaid. But it’s just not too ladylike to sit at a bar all by yourself, and my friends, … Continue reading

SOLAR, because even crappy weather should be pretty weather
