Grey is the colour of all my tomorrows
The future is drained of its hue
I can no longer care who begs or who borrows
Grey is the colour of all my tomorrows
Leached of emotions, of joys and of sorrows
For I will not spend them with you.

Grey is the colour of all my tomorrows
The future is drained of its hue.

Where Did the Time Go? — .:JUMO:. at Sneak Peek: Items Designed To Match From Head To Toe!

I'm truly surprised at the speed with which this year traveled. It's so cliche, to say pithy statements at times, "Hold on to them now; they'll be grown and gone before you know it." ~insert rolled eyes~ But when I was late teens and 20 something, I was sure I everything and those old sayings were for other people. My life would be different somehow. I'd cling to every good moment, savor it like one might cherish a hug, and keep them all together in my head and heart for the times I was alone or needful of such positive energy. Some of that worked, by the way, but it did not waylay the eventually echo-worthy comments that I now say to young people who probably roll their eyes at me as much as I did back then, and remind them to hold on to them now. They'll be grown and gone before you know it. Mine are, finally settled in their own adult worlds. As eager as I have been to get them both out of the house, stabilized on their own, and dependent on self, I've also missed them like crazy.… Read the rest

Got a Ticket Out Of Dodge – Chop Zuey and the World Wildlife Fund, Zanze at Sneak Peek and Analog Dog

New and beautiful! I really liked the drop inseam balloon pants that came as part of the overall outfit Zanze has for Sneak Peek this month, the Agnes Harlem Dress. I've been looking for a way to get out of Dodge, or take a vacation from all the holiday hustle and bustle, and finally this week, I've had a couple of long winter's naps. The Britto Jetsetter Travel Bags came from Chop Zuey and there's just enough room in that stack of traveling cases for me to jet to Paris or Tokyo to check out what's new and in style for 2015!
I also used a combination of Chop Zuey pieces layered to make my own mixed metals look. The Einn set included a long chain. It was created for a MVW contestant several years ago now, wow time flies, and is one of my favorite necklaces because of its length. I also have on the new Sultaness necklace, the Midnight Express Mens Ring and The Razor's Edge Mens Bracelet. As you may have noticed, I make use of the items created for both men and women at Chop Zuey because they make for great combination pieces!… Read the rest

Babes in the Wood

Hi all. Hope your holidays, however you celebrate, have been well.  I actually presented a clean house and marvelous feast and promptly fell over ill as soon as the last guest left my house :) After a few days of nearly continuous sleep and a few bowls of  "sick soup" (what we call my homemade chicken rice soup) I am hoping to get up most of my backlog of photos taken for holiday events. I've really enjoyed blogging some of the Christmas and seasonal items available this year in SL, wares I previously avoided in pre-mesh days.  If you are still in the spirit but done with Christmas trees and Santa suits a great place to visit is Gothmas by Gaslight.  GxG, which it's also called, is brought to you by Cursed Events (who also host A Tattered Page, World Goth Fair, etc.) runs through January 3 and a great place to visit for unusual holiday fare. All vendors this year have been updated for gifting options and there are many exclusive versions of items that will not be available after the event, so do not miss.… Read the rest

Ready For a Party – Kelini, !:Lybra:!, Analog Dog, ~ghee and Son!a

A new cocktail gown for party goers. It's that time of year, planning parties, watching fireworks, meeting old friends and making new friends. I met a new designer this week while I was looking into 'business' and loved the things she created and especially appreciated her support of the inaugural year of the Miss SL Organization's first pageant.
Eva K E L I N I - Haute Couture has this Diamond Cocktail dress out as a gift for new group members. I wanted to share one of her designs after I noticed several of the candidates from the first round auditions for Miss SL 2015 chose gowns by her as their basic look. I paired with it Lybra's Marella Fascinator adorning my hair, also new from Analog Dog - Tunnel Cake, and Lybra's Cerise Necklace Diamond.
I know it's unusual to pair boots with a cocktail look but it feels so me to do so. I love booooots... any time is a good time to pull out a pair. ~ghee created these for Fall14 as part of the fashion week earlier in the year. And somewhere along the way, not quite sure where or when, I acquired these earrings from Son!a, Silver Onyx.… Read the rest

Fun In Swimwear, Even If It Is Winter – !:Lybra:!, Analog Dog, and Chop Zuey; Also Lindy from Designer Showcase

I roamed around Lybra late last night to see the new rooms, how it's being organized and what might be new or fun to share with you. I was (as usual) overwhelmed with the number of things I wanted to try on, to wear, and to style for you. This swimsuit caught my attention, mostly because I think of formal attire when I think of Lybra. If you're a member of Lybra's group, you can find this in the group member room. And if you're not a member, you should be!
I paired Jennifer, the suit that comes with the ability to color change the top, bottom and belt each with different tones, or the option to color change all three to the same tone. I went with these tones because this reddish tone suits my skin so well, and always makes me feel beee-ooo-tiful. Yellow remains one of the fierce colors of 2014 and though we're about to ring in a new year, one more sash in that bold electric yellow works just fine. New boots from Lindy are available at Designer Showcase. Thankfully, I caught the news of a sale at Analog Dog and found a plethora of new styles including this one called Pipe Dream.… Read the rest

Last days


It's the last days of the year, and the last days of the month... which means the current rounds of many events will be over soon.

Earlier in the month, I grabbed a few pieces from We Love Role-Play, among them this gown from Evie's Closet and the Faunus Crown headdress from Gauze & Trap.

There are lots more amazing things this round that I probably won't get the chance to feature, but do make the effort to get down there before the round finishes on 31 December, to take advantage of the discounts.

The choker I'm wearing is from Sweet Thing at The Arcade, from the Song of Swans collection which has some really nice pieces. It's 50L a play, which is reasonable.

In contrast, I definitely think some of the machines at The Arcade can seem overpriced - specifically some of the ones priced at 100L (nb some, not all! 100L for a quality skin is still a pretty good price).

I noticed a version of the Drift's De Vrouw vest at The Dressing Room Fusion but didn't like the colours available there, so I tp'd to the mainstore and picked up the the 'Wildlife' version instead.… Read the rest

All About the Contestants — Sabra Style and Analog Dog

This afternoon was all about the contestants for the first Miss SL competition so I chose something deliberately casual, something I could imagine me wearing as I took photographs of famous people at a gathering in reality.
I thought I'd run into Kylie Sabra this afternoon during the auditions because of her closeness to those involved in the Miss SL Organization so I chose some of her items deliberately to whisper thanks in my own quiet way... (and she was there!)... Two photos show the completed look I wore to the event.

* Sabra Style Collette Sweater Gold
* Sabra Style Slacks Mocha Plaid
* Sabra Style Tawney in Red & Black Blouse
* Analog Dog Tootsie

Taking Time To Relax, Chill Out and Recover From Family and the Holidays — Immerschoen-Body Cult and Odelitte from Winter Market, Chop Zuey, October’s 4Seasons and {{BSD Design Studio}}

I put together a very casual array of items this evening. It just felt like one of those nights after all the bright and beautiful and party-fun-terrific brilliance to embrace things that were simple. I loved the idea of a knit cap called Beanie Svenja (with hair already added!) for instance, because wearing one means one does very little to pretty-up the hair under it. Convenient, warm, cozy... and it's part of Immerschoen-Body Cult's pieces sold at the Winter Market. The Skinny Pants Tweed also come from them and are sold at the Winter Market as well. Odelitte created this oversized sweater in an Ombre blue tone for Winter Market. I then added a pair of boot-like shoes from BSD Design studio called Billionaire Baby, a new release and one of the unique designs that Chop Zuey so lovingly shared during the season of gifts that helped close out 2014 called the Mysterium Necklace. And finally, though I have settled on October's 4Seasons Chocolate Cosmos as my 'default' skin tone, when new faces, special releases, gifts and the like come to October's 4Seasons, I'm excited to share, and this is Keiko with the Marigold Skin Tone and Brown Brows.… Read the rest

Let Me Look Into My Crystal Ball – Wertina from Winter Market, Analog Dog, Chop Zuey and Lindy

What does the new year bring for each of us? Sometimes I wish I had a crystal ball. When my sons were young and they would ask me some question to which I had no way of knowing because it was either simply information I didn't know or associated with time we hadn't had yet, I would answer, "Let me look into my crystal ball." They grew to laugh at this retort and now they make similar comments if I ask them about time off from work or other details for holidays, in much the same manner I used the phrase in their youth.
Since I don't have one of those balls, but I do have a sixth sense about some things, I feel really positive going into 2015. I think I will have a grand-child, hopefully a grand-daughter, on the way before 2015 ends. No they haven't announced it yet, and its one of those ideas where they both say oh no, we're not ready for that yet (and they're not!!) but I still believe it will be happily on its way before the year 2015 comes to a close. I also believe it's going to be my healthiest year yet since 2004 when my world fell apart at the seams.… Read the rest

Pressing Onward — New From Analog Dog – New Gifts From Chop Zuey – New From October’s 4Seasons

Onward and so forth... Christmas is one of those times of year that push and pull us in multiple directions and even in the best of moments, it can overwhelm us. I felt healthier this year than in many years past, and grateful for the extra bit of energy to get through the last little bit. Now it's done for a year and I'm ready to get on with what we call 'normal'.
Back to football, and bowl games and watching television through eyes that are 'just resting'. The last of Middle Earth came this season and it feels like an era passes. I don't know if it matters what we call normal or how we live day to day. In some ways, I hope I'm like the character Scrooge realizes he wants to be by the end of A Christmas Carol. I'll keep Christmas every day in my heart, do good to others, and make merry. I'll hope the same for you.
MAG created a selection of tops and minis to go together along with multiple styles of stockings/tights. I thought the grey with the rose patterned patches suited me perfectly.… Read the rest

The Quiet Hush Of Christmas Morning [FLRN] at Winter Market Event, BaoBa at The Couturier’s Docks and New NOYA Gifts

I went late late last night to the party Mr. Marcus announced for those who didn't want to be alone at Christmas. It was far too late to find party goers but I did have the pleasure of marveling at the beautiful layout and decor of the club. I felt like a little girl tiptoeing around the house after the grown-ups had turned out the lights and tucked everyone in bed. It was beautiful.
I've only begun to know Mr. Lefevre... and the more I know of him and the more I know him, the more I realize how he's impacted others' lives. It's truly a treat and a blessing, something you couldn't wrap and tuck under a tree, but a gift nonetheless. Baoba created this adorable hat made of poinsettias and ornamentation called "Rudolf" for The Couturier's Docks.
The new sweat and mini skirt set, which I love love love for the details and quality of content is from [FLRN] and can be purchased at their Winter Event and NOYA sent out a set of gifties to loyal customers (in my opinion she does far too much but I'm grateful for those gifts) and this box included some snowflake type lashes.… Read the rest
