Brilliant Friends

I just read two books back to back that made me realize there is this whole genre of books with a similar form. I have read many of them over the years, but never realized what they were. I decided to call this genre Brilliant Friends books after Elena Ferrante’s magical Neapolitan Quartet and its first book My Brilliant Friend. The stories are all told by an adult woman looking back on an intense high school friendship that was formative, changing their lives in some way or another. The narrator is the more subdued friend, the quiet one, the follower who is remembering the brilliant, defiant, bold, brave and ultimately tragic friend. Tragedy can take many forms, not just death, but always, the narrator ends in a better place than the brilliant friend. Thinking about it, both the books I just read (Marlena and Please Proceed to the Exit) fit that model but not just them. There’s The Girls by Emma Cline, The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel, even All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda, a mystery has the brilliant friend disappear, runaway or murder victim.… Read the restPlease Proceed to the Nearest Exit

Beyond My Reach




       Hello! I am back from my week vacation. I had a great time. I went to the largest aquarium in the western hemisphere. I saw Andy Black ( I am a big fan and I was on the floor right at the stage for his set. His voice is great and he is sooo pretty as well.) and loads of other great music at Vans Warped Tour. I rode a huge Ferris wheel. I had a wonderful week! I actually got back yesterday, but I went out last night with friends to sing karaoke. Singing is my favorite thing to do. You can listen to my song recordings, HERE, if you are interested. 




        Missing a week in SL is like a month or 2 in RL. I have so much to open and catch up on so I am going to get right to work. It is great to be back home and able to see my SL friends and family. I love you guys! MUAH. 




I saw this live! Andy was GREAT!!!

Perfect Ten & a cheap summer !

New round of Perfect Ten and it got me thinking about searching out some cheap & free items to do some summertime decorating. I’ve been working in my summer-house for a week or so now in my real life, so gave it a go to replicate in SL. First off the Beach hut with deck is actually  FREE! It’s from The Beachstore and is 16Li, in the box I discovered some further little huts in a rainbow of colour – how lovely. The retro looking ice box is also a freebie and only 2Li. For just $10L you can snap up the chairs & table set – 10Li in total, but you don’t have to use the whole set. All other decor are dollarbies listed below for your convenience. The cactus plants are by Zinnia, various prices and LI. I found this sweet skirt and top on the MPlace for $10L, lots of mesh body sizes included and the cutest ever sandals at Kirin on the lucky board – mesh feet and standard sizes. Now this is the paid for piece and its well worth shelling out for.… Read the rest

Meet the Hair Fair Designers: Euryops Lemon of Cheveux

Cheveux Open Cafe by Mariru Catnap What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you? I started making hair flow products three months ago. We have been making hair since 2008. The most important thing for me is to make hair that looks real. Land Impact is aimed at light and yet delicate design Untitled by ChloeSL How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you? If your stores is named after yourself, how did you go about choosing your avatar name? CHEVEUX in French is hair. I wanted to make global hair loved by people all over the world.
What sets your hair styles apart from other hair designers, in your opinion? What is your style or aesthetic? My store’s concept is CUTE. It’s pretty hair. Men also have a lot of masculine hair so we are good at unique, delicate and sweet design. Cheveux Hair from HairFair 2016 by Cajsa Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
