My Self-promoted Promotion

I have just discovered Polyvore. In this context, however, the definition of "discovered" is altered dramatically to suit my circumstances. I've come across the website many times yet only momentarily marvelled at its inspirational collections or "sets". I've also seen all your posts on your own Polyvores, it's just that until now I had never "discovered" Polyvore in the sense that I hadn't joined and wasn't hooked. But thankfully now, I am.

Being passionate about both writing and fashion it comes as no surprise that fashion publications have always inspired me parallel to wanting to actually have a career that ends up somewhere between freelance journalist and industry-leading magazine editor.

For now, I'm an independent blogger feeding off your comments and pretending they're some form of payment for my job of posting on Fashionfalsehood. That's as far as I've gotten in my thus far miniscule fashion-journalist career. It's fine, I like blogging anyway, I'm totally okay with it because posting on here lets me pretend I'm a real journalist working at a real fashion publication. I get to be my own boss, write what ever I like and at the end of the day when I put my exacerbated draft on the editor's desk, I feel overwhelmingly contended when she clicks "publish".

I have a pretty good office. It's certainly no corner office over-looking Central Park on 5th Avenue, New York; but it's got a comfy chair and I'm allowed to excessively stick my personal photos and inspiration all over the walls, not to metion the fantastic and flexible working hours. No one in my office ever forgets to fill the ice-cube tray, nor do they forget to refill the jug. I get to set the air confitioning to whatever temperature I like and I get to look as ugly as hell at work because every day is Casual Friday here at HQ.

Working freelance in the writers department at Fashionfalsehood is a dream come true with all the perks a journalist could ask for, however with the advent of my own Polyvore, I now work in the fashion department too.

My Sets:
Floral Minimalist
Street Corner Pt. 1

Street Corner Pt. 2
Snakeskin WishesLady Noir

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=twitter.com/iuyjopg]Viagra Sales Market[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://fovunec.freehostia.com]Ordering Viagra to Canada[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
