Gimme Some Damn Coffee

Let’s face it, some people aren’t themselves until they eat. I’m not myself until I get a cup (or two) of hot Joe in the morning. In fact, I’m downright cranky I confess. I probably shouldn’t get this cranky but darnit, the service in this place is just too damn slow. I’m exhausted at COLLABOR88 has opened and you know that just means AWESOME especially this round. I love that the theme is ESPIONAGE and they incorporated in some reds into the palette which gives us all freedom to work in our love for the upcoming love day without vomiting hearts and cupids at you for the next week. Well, some people are probably going to vomit hearts and cupids at you, I’m sorry in advance. Actually, “I” may vomit hearts and cupids at you now that I think of it. I won’t apologize if I do it, though. I’ll say I’m being ironic. Now I’ve got my coffee and all is well. See, I can be reasonable. Just caffeinate me quickly, and no one gets hurt.… Read the rest

There are Two Important Things I Need To Discuss Today

One is that I love the Fucking Gacha Garden. So much so, that I believe they should change their name to exactly that. But then you’d end up with unmentionables at every vendor and well I’m just too much of a lady for all that. Yes I am. But I’m not too much of a lady to LOVE SOME DAMN FOOTBALL. I drug out a table and a TV and set up for the big game! You can celebrate big events without shitting all over people’s copyrights. There are football jerseys and other decor pieces IN THE SPIRIT that don’t disrespect the owners of real world designs and I respect that. I’m having a great night in the spirit of the big game with this jersey from the Gacha Garden! My shirt should say ORANGE, just to make my affiliation clear. I am legally required to root for Manning. That being said, I can’t wait for the excitement, and the disappointment, and whatever else comes along. Most of all I can’t wait to eat the snackies I’ve set out in case Cajsa comes over for the big game.… Read the rest

We Can’t Hold Our Liquor

My friend Kitty and I decided to go about yesterday, hither and yon, and after coffee at her place we decided on drinkees at mine. Luckily my new kitchen from Trompe Loeil dispenses them liberally so it didn’t take too long until we were two very tipsy girls. I took her on the requisite tour of my house and studio. She was a little drunker than I realized. Luckily we didn’t break anything, but we did roll about my place like a couple of sniggering twits. We’re easily amused.  Eventually we ended up admiring my furniture. A lady never kisses and tells, so I definitely won’t. But I’m posting this up just for Natalie. Kitty told me to! Hope your day was grand, and you’re ready for  COLLABOR88 tomorrow! I’m wearing a preview of the Clawtooth hair…..you need it! Gidge is Wearing:

I Never Like To Admit That I Was Wrong

Are you good at admitting you’re wrong? It’s a skill. When I’m working, toiling at my desk and blogging, shooting, styling, I have no problem admitting something’s wrong. “Look at that intersection” or “Oh god why did I think that went together” or whatever it is I’ve done wrong, I am ok with admitting it. I’m good with accepting it and moving on. Personally I’m terrible at it.  I hate realizing I’m wrong about someone. I hate being wrong about who they are, or their intentions.  I hate it so much that I can be known to ignore it – for years. I had a friend once who was like an albatross. She was vile, she was hateful, and she had the power to hurt other people harshly and did so when it suited her. But she was nice TO ME. It was only after I had gotten to know her that I realized how much she enjoyed hurting other people, twisting the truth, and smearing people via social media. “But you don’t know her personally,” I’d say sheepishly to those who railed against me for being friends with her.… Read the rest

Got My Hucci On

So I had some time to myself after feeding my kitties and doing the usual housework and I thought SELF! You need to go out! So I dug in my closet and found some perfect clubbing clothes from House of Hucci. It was Fetish Night and I guess my fetish is….cute clothes. I opted for cute flat shoes even though maybe those aren’t the most SL DANCE-Y sort of shoes. They’re more cute beach day/pool day shoes but you know what, I can do what I want. I took my kitty with me to the club, she was a huge hit. I think she got flirted with more than I did. Lucky kitty. You can pick one up at the Gacha Garden, if you need a butterfly kitty hybrid. I mean, obviously you do need one. So go get one! My clothes from House of Hucci are from previous rounds of Collabor88 and she never disappoints with her cute evening wear. It was perfect, and kept my bits covered. Gidge is Wearing:

The Right Girl and the Girl Who Waited

There is the Girl Who Waited who is Amelia Pond. She waited for his return, and when he did great adventures and wonder happened throughout her life. But she was spun along through her own adventures, like a rudderless boat sometimes. She wasn’t the captain, yet she was a willing participant in the chaos of adventure she was able to experience. (I won’t embrace the spoilers of the end of her adventures, as we know it’s against the rules – SPOILERS!) But there’s another kind of girl and she’s the kind who won’t wait for anybody. F. Scott Fitzgerald nailed it for me. “No sir, the right girl wouldn’t wait for anybody.” Sometimes you have to figure out which girl you are. Are you the girl who waited and let adventure come your way as it may? Or are you the girl who wouldn’t wait for anybody? I used the be the former. Then I learned the value of being the latter. Many of the items in today’s post are from The Gacha Garden – SUCH a cute event.… Read the rest

A Headache Away

So many things are just a headache away from solving. Right now my head hurts. Decisions are hard, and I’m not a girl who makes them when I don’t have to.  Yet here I am making decisions, shedding my skin and becoming a new girl. It’s rather liberating. Sort of a “dance in the cold ass snow” sort of liberating. The snow, however, is cold as shit. I need to go back inside. Liberation and happiness have many faces. This is one of them.

If You’re Ready Come And Get It

Cheeky Pea has a new bed out at UBER and I really like it. It’s a swirling mess of blowing silks around a lively arbor theme. She’s calling it the Woodland Tent Bed and it’s aptly named. I’d like to try it out but alas, I’m all alone over here and can’t give most of these animations a go. I’ll trust that they are lovely. I do like the feature she’s built in of covering you up if you’re sleeping. I’m a big fan of snuggling under the blankets so yay for that. Speaking of other things I like, I am loving this hair and pajamas given to me by Sophia Harlow – she had Gacha dups she gave away the other day. She’s forever giving away her extras and it makes me smile – sometimes they’re from events I haven’t even seen so I’ll tell her “surprise me” and something amazing shows up. She knows me well enough to know exactly what’s Gidgiest. These pajamas were so comfy and cute, they were perfect for the end of my day on Sunday.… Read the rest

What’s Wrong With Being ?

It’s a Sunday that’s been rife with things to do and me being confused about events that aren’t open yet or are already closed. I’m 15 kinds of cranky so I decided something comfortable was in order for today. My new dress is a shirt dress from Fission and it’s got the right amount of “put together” to go with just hanging around.  My shoes are also from Fission which were for the Carvers End event but I’m hoping she still has them in her store for you, they’re so cute. As for me, I’m having a struggling Sunday, I need to find inner peace today and it’s eluding me. I may end up in the tub. If you come bothering me, you’ll find me naked. You’ve been warned. Don’t even act like you would mind. I just noticed this dress looks like a taffeta tartan – I kinda love that. Anyway – happy SUNDAY girls. Behave. Gidge is Wearing:

What’s Your Runway Like?

Everyone has a different runway of emotions. It’s how long it takes you to break, to change course, to stop whatever it is you’re investing in. That friend whom you question “how long is she going to put up with that?” is still on her runway. She isn’t out of space yet. I think all emotions have them in some way or another, and how we react when we get to the end of that runway is another thing all together. Some people crash and the fireball is amazing. We’ve all been there, seen the smoke, the flames, the rage at the end of an emotional event and we’ve probably been sorry to spectate. Perhaps we’ve just been glad it wasn’t us, going up in fire and pain. There is another option though. You can take off. You can fly. You have to do it before the end of the runway. At the end, when you have nothing left, you will crash because that’s how it works. You have to see the end of your own runway, and get your nose up, pull up your feet – and fly.… Read the rest

Cute Things On Marketplace For You

If it’s true that girls only dress up for other girls, how much more so that fashion bloggers dress up for other fashion bloggers? And compliments FROM other fashion bloggers – aren’t they some of the highest praise you get? I received a really cute dress that fits various SLINK Bodies (I’m wearing SLINK Hourglass today) with a note that I was receiving it because Kirsten Corelone loves my blog. I fangirled being fangirled and quickly slapped it on to take a look. It’s perfect for my shopping adventures today and a great pick up if you’re looking for something to wear out this weekend. You can find it on MP in their store here. There’s some really cute stuff in this new to me shop. Now, I’ve got to go check on my kitties and make sure Carson fed them while I was taking a couple of days to travel!

Baby I’m Perfect…For You

I have a host of things in my inventory from a time in my SL that’s a big blank to me. So as I stand here looking fashiony, I’m going to mention some things and it’s neither a cry for attention nor an excuse. It’s just you see, back in the fall I missed a lot of things. In the course of trying to keep a handle on my inventory I keep finding things that I can’t recall ever getting. I’m beginning to worry that lovely people who I blog for might think I don’t love them, or didn’t like their things. This is probably likely as I tend to blog daily but my madness is without reason usually when choosing what I blog. I’m telling my story of those days, and so if something got passed over, alas it often stays passed over. I was trying to think, some time ago, how I had possibly missed an event. How is it I didn’t attend? It was a truly loved event, filled with creators I admire and not one I’m likely to miss. Upon further review I realized- it was the fall.… Read the rest

No Way To Control It – It’s Totally Holographic…Whenever You’re Around

Unless you’ve been under a rock you know that this round at COLLABOR88 is HOLOGRAPHIC for the moodboard theme. The releases are fun and festive and I have to admit, there’s just so much fun to be had it’s not easy to pick WHAT to love. My typist is flying away for a few days so I decided to spend some studio time, she’ll be so proud of me working and everything right? While she is gone I am planning many adventures here on my little island. Who knows, maybe I’ll move house. Maybe I’ll read a lot. I don’t know. But I’m planning so have fun without her. Who’s with me for some fun while the rulemaker is gone? It’s going to be some fun days, I’ve decided and therefore IT WILL BE! Gidge is Wearing:

Mesh Head from Fawny: Pros and Cons

The problem with being a blogger is that we’re obliged to make things look good. We don’t want to be photographed looking BAD, so we fix things, shoot around things, and very often don’t show you when something isn’t quite as it should be. Sometimes the isn’t as it should be  is the Grid being stupid, sometimes it’s a design problem. Regardless, if we don’t share our quibbles (as we call them around here) we aren’t really being truthful. When people tell me my avatar is beautiful, I routinely tell them it’s my job. Of course I look good. Which brings us today’s post. I’m sort of addicted to trying out mesh heads, and I think Gacha is a fun way to pick them up. I don’t have a lot of illusions about random MESH HEAD X not matching skins I own, I know this is a thing and I’ll put on a scarf or whatnot and make it work. I just like the variety and shooting varied photos with different faces.… Read the rest

Can We Talk About Free AOs ? Part One

For reasons I cannot properly explain I was compelled to try out some various AOs from Marketplace the other day. I decided that given the fact that decent AOs can be expensive AF that maybe, maybe I’d find a gem or two on MP. You never know. For today’s experiment I’m not using vids – which I should have but RL is making it impossible ATM so I think I will experiment with shooting short vids of the AOs next time around and if so I’ll include this one. I’m starting out with THIS ONE – MIA PRIMA. Let’s start with things that are good: This shit is free. It would have to be pretty fucking wonky to be bad at that point. But in addition to being free, it’s got some REALLY nice features. Read the rest

A Solitary Creature

I’ve been a solitary creature for five years. It took adjustment, being alone all the time, finding reasons to stay here on my own. But now I’ve decided to stop being such a solitary creature and I find myself wondering am I even made for this new, more social and engaging side of me. Memories of how flaky people are, how things can go come flooding back. Years of investment and trust can be dissolved like sugar in the rain. SL people, frankly, can just suck. Am I so certain I want to leave my refuge and engage them? I’m so cold inside but maybe, just one more try. Gidge is Wearing:

What Did I Forget ?

I’m the queen of bad intersections, hair stuck through arms, floating necklaces and various other faux pas. I’m a veteran enough blogger to snicker when someone else does it yet find the ego to go oh eff it I don’t care when I do. This is pretty much true 100% of the time. I will decide that it’s a  more accurate representation of your SL experience as intersections and weird stuff DOES happy when you aren’t stuck in a pose for a shoot. So, that’s a Gidge truth. However, I had this great night last night reconnecting with an old friend and then Amatorum was having a party so I slapped on something new QUICKLY and ran over there, with a nagging feeling the entire time that I was MISSING something. What am I missing? As I cammed up and down I was at a loss for what I’d forgotten to wear or fix. Eventually I figured out that meh, it was just a party and if I couldn’t SEE what was off how bad could it be? I danced the night away to 90s hip hop and had a really great time.… Read the rest

If It Was Dinner…

Let it be known that I am prepared to cook. I’m ready to make dinner for anyone who should require it. I’ve got a kitchen and all the amenities necessary. I’m down right domestic. I feel like it’s a positive thing, my willingness to bring pixel food to you. After all, you don’t want your avatar to go hungry do you? Floating Spaghetti is one of my specialties. Not everyone can make it. But I can, if floating spaghetti is what appeals. I’m just saying, I’ve got that going for me. My dress this evening is from THE WICKED PEACH. You might know her work from makeup and nails which is flawless but she’s branched out and I’m loving what she’s doing. Great job! This dress is excellent. So then, let me know if you want some floating spaghetti. Because if so, I’m in. Gidge is Wearing:

I Had Plans You See

Having a social calendar is suddenly making my SL a busier place, and I’m loving it. Except for one thing. I’m TIRED. Cajsa and I were out this weekend and reminiscing on the so many parties we used to throw and attend, and how much time we used to spend together and she remarked “Yes, you never slept.” I guess that’s true. I was younger, or stupider (more stupid for the literati).  But you see LAST NIGHT I really wanted to go to a party at Amatorum this fun group I joined and I thought it would be a good excuse to trot out some pretty lingerie I have and then well, let’s say the clock didn’t stop. Damn clock.

Imagine Me And You…and You and Me

RC-Cluster completes my SL in a way that is sometimes too epic to put into words. How did she know I need to both blow dry my hair and perform while getting ready for my day?  Clearly my day was going to be epic, starting out so well entertained. I decided on a little personal game of Click and Go but then realized I needed vocation or at least entertainment on this blustery day. That’s when I remembered something I haven’t used in YEARS – YE OLD EVENTS CALENDAR. Well it’s not much changed, people still like 300 linden modeling jobs as though that’s an event but I found a DJ getting ready to perform and popped over to that location. I drug Cajsa away from her breakfast and we danced the morning away to a set that was eclectic and fun. DJ Blu (Blublaize Resident) was fun and as excited to be spinning tunes as his audience was to listen. I give him a thumbs up for being a DJ who is festive. I explored a lot of mountains and valleys while on my adventure as well, and found most of them lacking.… Read the rest
