Sometimes Friday Needs Style

The fog rolling in on Juicy this morning wasn’t inspiring me to much of anything I confess.  What I really craved this morning was to sit around and watch tv and not get much done. I’ve finally gotten my living room moved in after far too long in this house. I’m not sure what I’ve been waiting on. Some sign it was the right one? Some reason to stay? I realized I wasn’t ever going to get out of the house if I stayed in yoga pants and a tee shirt so getting dressed was the first step to motivation. I can’t say for sure it’s working. In my SL today I want to do my FLF shopping, and maybe check out something from Honour McMillan’s blog, I feel like exploring a new place. But for right now I want to watch the fog roll in and think about how lucky I am to live in so much peace and beauty. Even on a grey day, it’s mesmerizing me. Uber is also open and I haven’t been over there. This new skin from BELLEZA – Jia, is available and is a pretty new face.… Read the rest

Les Liasons Dangereuses

One of my favorite lines from any book is by Margaret Atwood. “I want all my hurts to be intentional.” It’s a personal mantra. It’s two sided to me. It means I don’t want to unintentionally cause harm or sadness. Being a human person means you do in fact do that sometimes. Through your actions or decisions you might hurt another person, even someone you care about. The best you can do in that situation is apologize. You can’t always fix it, some times you can’t go back – or going back isn’t where fate is taking you. But you can be honest, and try to move forward with good intentions even if you can’t remove that thing that hurts. Intentional hurts though are something reserved for people I am truly at odds with. It’s hard to sit here and think of an actual instance, but I’d venture that when under attack I’m not against returning fire – and returning fire in a harsh fashion. I think that’s fair too.… Read the rest

Love In Mysterious Ways

Sometimes I feel more in love than others. I am invested so deeply that sometimes I forget the love and passion that drives the machine of a love affair – even when it’s a long term one. It’s hard sometimes to know why you love someone or how it turned into love, but I know I never forget that moment when the words became real. Saying them is like a magical spell, it can bring amazing things into our life or it can kill your dreams. I’m lucky that it turned out well. I’m content, though. No love is perfect, and finding your soulmate is never a guarantee of a perfect relationship. I’ve decided after all these years that there isn’t one of those at all ANYWHERE. So when you find real love, you have to hold onto it and sort out how to keep it. There is no such thing as too much love. Gidge is Wearing:

Back into Routine

Pixel Gidge struggled for a week to get her life back on track.  Travelling through multiple airports and trudging through foreign lands wore her out. Sure, it was amazing awesome times, and getting to see one of your favorite people ever is worth any amount of tired but still, getting back TO your life can be a challenge. She’s back on track, trying to keep everything going now with the help of her little dog. Her house is messy and she’s got to spend some time cleaning today I predict.  I’ve discovered a new to me brand and found out that I’m a total dork this brand has been around FOREVAH but hey I’m still in love.

And I Need To Get Home

Home is that place where you walk in and you’re at ease, it’s your space. You’re not only welcome there you feel a strong sense of it being the right place. Sometimes it’s just your space, sometimes it’s a space you share. You can feel HOME at a place that isn’t your dwelling, and that’s the best feeling of all, because that’s the most welcoming and happy feeling of all. You know it’s a good place, if you feel like it’s home when you step inside. Inside you usually find your people, even when you’re not connected by DNA.  I’m sharing a new to me skinner LOUX today and the lovely offering from SKIN fair as well as the FESTIVE nails from Nylon Outfitters from COLLABOR88 this month. YAY for damn fine coffee. In fact, I think I need a cup. Happy Thursday. Gidge is Wearing:

First Stop, Toscana

The 8f8 villa and decor from The Arcade is a perfect relaxing spot on my way to my final destination. I stopped in to refresh myself from my travels and to enjoy Cajsa’s hospitality. Relaxing for a day or two is my plan, with further northward progression to follow. It’s tempting to linger here in the pastoral peace of this place. I could see it being a perfect dwelling if rustic comfort is your thing. I’ll be collapsing in the spare bedroom. Stay lovely girls! Gidge is Wearing:

Time To Travel

It should come as no surprise that I ALWAYS overpack when I travel. This time I’m heading north north north from my warm southern home. It’s still terrible winter there, and I’m ill prepared for what that’s going to mean. But I’m going to pack pack pack and hope for the best. I know two pair of pajama pants might seem excessive but one is warm and one is cooler. And I need both casual clothes and work clothes. Oh my this is going to be a lot of bags, isn’t it? Well it doesn’t matter, the adventure alone will make lugging all these things along well worth it! Gidge Is Wearing:

Twin Peaks and Porn

The current round of COLLABOR88 has kicked off with an homage to one of my favorite stories – TWIN PEAKS. The actual name of the theme is MOONLESS NIGHT, and mood board hearkens to damn fine coffee and Laura Palmer’s compatriots.  New awesome things are to be found and I was excited to see so much great realization of this theme. An aside from Collabor88 this month is a nod to 21Shoe which is coming up.  There is something new, in that the 21Shoe group will now have a 150L to join, but now EACH MONTH you’ll get a little giftee from one of the creators! For March it’s an ankle bracelet from Sax Shepherd Designs which I’m wearing today! There is one for left or right ankle, and Sax included a HUD for you to tweak the look! Sweet idea! Speaking of PORN, we used to watch Porn on Thursday nights in college. We called it Culture Night and we’d turn the sound down, and everyone was assigned a character to “voice”. It was pretty funny.… Read the rest

A Blogger’s Work Is Not Begging

I started out my early morning shopping and usual blogger work a bit earlier than usual today. I think of blogging both as my SL Hobby and let’s face it, it’s also a bit of a job. Some people role play families, some people role play being a space pirate, some people role play being a cabbage for all I know. I guess that makes my role play in SL being a fashion blogger.  I love it, I love styling my pixel self, I love the choices and variety of fashion – I love that high heels NEVER NEVER NEVER hurt my feet. I love being perfect based on what I consider to be ideal. I love that genetics play no part in how pixel Gidge looks. When I was a new blogger I surfed the Freebie Blogs like mad. I shopped the sale days for accessories and skins to bulk up my ability to style with more variety. I applied to events. Sometimes I was accepted. Sometimes I was not. I tried again next time when I was not. I’ve blogged nearly every day for years now.  Creators see my work and either like it or not.… Read the rest

Twinkling

It’s cold and rainy with possible ice incoming in RL so the only recipe to solve that sort of crisis is obviously to dress up in SL. I’m wearing a new release from Sacha’s designs that is so twinkly and glittery my video card can’t show it to you.  It reminds me of what it would look like if taffeta and sequins had a baby. I know that’s crazy, they aren’t even both fabrics! What do they have in common?  Have you played with the new SLINK HANDS nails options yet? Ok seriously – VERY addicting. That’s all for me today.

Three Eyed Cat Soup

The original title of this post was “If you go out in the woods today…” because it was going through my head while I was getting dressed. Then I went looking around on Honour McMillan’s blog for a good place to shoot and EXACTLY the place I wanted was found in a blog post by the same name. KISMET! But I figured, she just used that title, I know we’ve used it, I’ve got to come up with something new. I realized I’m clearly headed to Grandmother’s in this outfit. Traditionally I’m taking her a basket of food as she’s sick. So obviously, in this version of the tale, Grandmother is going to be having three eyed cat soup. Right? Yum yum. I prefer mine with a BIT of cayenne pepper. Gidge is Wearing:

These great boots and armor are available at THE ARCADE which opens in a few hours. I’m so excited.
