All posts by Marina Neira

My name is Marina! ๐ŸŒ Iโ€™m a SFW furry artist and fantasy writer. I'm an immigrant, living in the USA since December 12, 2001. I became a proud American citizen on May 21st, 2021. Iโ€™m in my late 30s and married to a wonderful nerdy guy. Youโ€™re welcome to refer to me as she/her. Iโ€™m what you could describe as peculiar. I talk peculiar, dress peculiar, and have peculiar interests, to put it all mildly. I can be dressed like a five year old, drinking alcohol from a literal sippy cup, while discussing theology or George Orwell with you. Being this way has sometimes made it hard to find people I vibe with (I'm kind of out of place no matter where I go) but it has also led me down some interesting paths in life. I wouldn't rather be anyone other than myself. ๐Ÿฅฐ I'm the author of Meganeea and The Tale of Horus ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ I like saying that, but no one knows my books, since I'm still working on them.

A Happy, Busy Day Ahead

Good morning everyone!! I hope youโ€™re already having a wonderful day!

I have lots of chores to do today, but I plan to spend most of the day working on commercial art after dedicating most of my week to non-commercial commissions. What are your weekend plans? ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ„

Side note… I freaking love this outfit ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–โœจ๐Ÿงธ๐Ÿ„

Friday RoundUp ๐ŸŽˆ

Greetings, everyone! โ˜€๏ธ I hope you had a great day! Iโ€™m back on some of my good habits โ€”woke up early and showered, and I had a healthier, smaller breakfast compared to my usual debauchery (lol). Hopefully I can keep this up again and also resume my walks. I do really miss them but the heat has been simply unbearable.

Anyway, remember that all you have to do today is your best. Thatโ€™s it! No one elseโ€™s metrics matter. Actual success doesnโ€™t even matter. Do your best and even if you donโ€™t succeed today, you wonโ€™t feel defeated. Remember your best can be different on different days too! So be kind and patient with yourself! ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆโœจ

Later in the day I did in fact go on a walk. Chantilly came along!

โ€ชI braved being very much in the vicinity of a bee to take this photo ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ

I went to Target –here are some little things I got. ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿงธ

And also, Iโ€™m just glittery trash. Seriously. I tried this on and put it back because it was like, I canโ€™t. Iโ€™m 36, I canโ€™t wear this… right? ๐Ÿ˜ซ

But it did look good. And it would look good with SO many of my shirts that actually look just terrible with my hoodies although I love those as well. So I caved.

After all, I may be able to get away with it now, but certainly wonโ€™t forever. But heck maybe when Iโ€™m older I just wonโ€™t care? Lol. Itโ€™s at Target if youโ€™re interested, but you have to be petite to wear it. It only goes up to XL.

Later I gathered the nerve to lay down the biggest sticker Iโ€™ve ever had to put down on any surface. It was a XL Redbubble sticker by dragonsandbeasties:

I donโ€™t know how, but there were no bubbles and it is sort of centered! Feeling pretty smug. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Speaking of studio decor, here is the primary colored banner I got at Target for $3.

With all the Purikura, the banner itself looks like a digital decoration, doesn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜…

To wrap up this lovely day, I ordered Scrubyโ€™s for dinner and now Iโ€™m in freaking HEAVEN ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿ—

I guess it’s time to wrap up the post, too. Goodnight, everyone!

Tres Leches Has Mooved In! ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ›

SHE’S HERE!! Sheโ€™s actually here! ๐Ÿ˜ญโœจ I didnโ€™t think I would like her as much as Maplenut but sheโ€™s even better crafted, my goodness! She feels like you could grab her by a paw and twirl her over your head and sheโ€™d be just fine! Very sturdy for being one of the โ€œplayโ€ย Charlie Bears.

Starting to dress her up…

I ended up using clothes I already had. She wonโ€™t be needing shoes.

I love her horn ribbons more than anything else! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’• I really really adore her to bits.

Last picture for the night, Tres Leches with her strawberry bell โ€œearringsโ€! ๐Ÿ”” ๐Ÿ“ ๐Ÿ’•

Thanks again toย thebubblegumbeadcompany on Instagram/Etsyย for the bells.

Max Happiness For My Tama! ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒž

โ€ชI did it!! ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆโœจ Though I wish I fed her before the picture, oops ๐Ÿ™Š

โ€ชShe has a new room, I picked the farm one. Itโ€™s so cute! ๐ŸŽ ๐ŸŒณ ๐ŸŒธ โ˜€๏ธ

โ€ชPlaying with her tama pet ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆโœจ
