The Sea of Love

Mami Jewell of AZUL probably designs more gowns than anyone for the Miss SL competitions. The Linette gown was designed for Miss Indonesia Mio Linette and it comes in twelve standard colors and two limited edition colors. When I walked in the gown the ebb and flow of the feathers at the bottom made me think of the gracefully flowing fins of a beta fish, so for fun I headed to Borinquin Zyn’s underwater tableau where there are underwater animations. Below the cut, you can see a video I made and see what I mean about this lovely gown.
The Sea of Love is an emotionally evocative song written by Phil Phillips and recorded by him long ago. It has been covered many times.  Most are pretty good, including covers by Iggy Pop and the inimitable Tom Waits. There is a beautiful cover by Emily West. Some are terrible, I like Robert Plant but that was an over-produced mess. Myy favorite version by far, though, is this one by Cat Power. It has so much fragility and tenderness.… Read the rest150818_002

“Is that why you wanted a love song?”

Husbands can be so bossy. The subtle types are the worst…or the best depending on one’s perspective. So, clearly it’s necessary to punish them with sweetness and kindness later. At least my husband because I’m usually moody. He would know something was totally wrong if I was super sweet for absolutely no reason at all. ;) Egoisme’s newest release Elegant Babydoll is “Feminine, chic, and oh so playful! The back is especially delicious to me. The barely hanging on by a thread is enticing and such a distractor. Elegant Babydoll comes in 8 gorgeous colors with just the right amount of sparkle. If you are an Egoisme Prestige member, don’t forget to wear your tag so you get that 25% discount!  Want a ride? Click I want to be an elegant babydoll for your lift. Credits:

#403 The trumpets will not toot themselves


I am blogging slower than usual recently because of issues with SL, but I get there in the end.  A few things I am showing today are from currents events, and I really wanted to get this post done before they end - and I have, yay!  

My gorgeous hair is by Elikatira and one of two styles at the current round of Collabor88. I love that Elika has made a totally different hairstyle to any I have seen before, and she has somehow created a real sense of life and movement.  I am wearing one of the ombres from the the reds pack, and I really love this "copper plum" shading - you get 12 solid and 6 ombre in each colour pack which is great value - and even more so if you buy them at Collabor88 while discounted.  


My top is from Just Because and is one of her two items available at Uber - you can buy it in separate colours or a fatpack which comes with an extensive hud giving you a choice of solid colours or the printed option I am wearing.  It comes rigged for Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus, Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and 5 standard sizes plus alpha.… Read the restPost #403

Under the sea

The Enchantment Event lets say…was quite interesting. Mermaids and Under the sea type creatures are not my thing. So I had the help of my good friend Helena the owner of The Stringer Mausoleum to help me and give me some pointers. Well pointers I mean clothing, and where to take pictures and so forth. […]

Wunderlist seems made for SL bloggers.

I want to introduce you all to Wunderlist, a task managing app that seems made for Second Life® bloggers. It is probably great for all sorts of other tasks, but I love it for blogging for several reasons, the most important being that I do not have to recreate my to-do list every month. So, to start, you go to Wunderlist.com. You can run it on your browser as I do or download an app for your phone or tablet. It works on everything. Signing up is easy and you can link it to your Google, Facebook or Microsoft accounts. It syncs your stuff and does all sorts of wondrous sync-y stuff that I don’t care about because I don’t have a cell phone. Clicking on the down arrow by your name gives you all sorts of options for backgrounds and other settings. It also gives you this handy list of short cuts, allows you to turn off notifications and other goodies. You can also specify whether you want the date to show DD/MM/YY or MM/DD/YY and so on. There are prettier backgrounds for Pro users and you can get a Pro account for free by getting a friend to sign up.… Read the restWunderlist

Questionable Product Packaging


Can you spot the shopping bag in the photo above? Nope - that's my boob. Try again. If you guessed the giant fairy that I am standing next to, you guessed correctly. 

I picked up this shopping bag at the Aloha Fair last month. I am trying not to think about where she was hiding the gift inside of a bikini and sunglasses. 

I admire the creativity of not using a plain plywood cube as a package, but this is 14 prims, gave off particles, and is taller than my avatar. Also, she startled me into thinking someone had TPd into my workshop and was watching me try on clothing.

While I'm at it, I might as well share some packaging pet peeves and loves.
