Strange Shadows and Ominous Portents

An early studio day has me questioning whether I need more coffee or what. My shadows have been wonked since about 7 am, with my shadows having shadows.  I’m not sure why, but I have decided to call it art and roll with it. I can remember when it was the case of “some had shadows and some had none”. Well now I have more shadows than you. LOOK ON ME. Just kidding, I don’t know what that is but hey, it’s not the worst thing that ever happened. I’m wearing a skater dress that I just had to have from Tres Blah. I found it shopping on EloquenceSL and if you’re not using that blog for your event run down (and personal closet reference after you bought everything) you’re silly. I drug Cajsa over with me and she got one too. We’re going to both style it differently for fun. Rather a “same damn thing” reboot. And now Gidge in both lives has a very full schedule so I’m off. I hope your day is full of amazing and beautiful things.… Read the rest

To Bed

Quiet reflection to end my day is proving more and more valuable every day. What went well? What did I get done? I know I didn’t accomplish everything but no one ever does. I feel good, overall, about my day. I’m going to sleep well, and I’m going to wake up ready to face my new work work.   I’m not going to be stressed about anything this week. I’m going to take care of myself and those I love. This is my plan. Stress is going to go right past me, and away. And now that I’ve told the universe my plans, I’m going to sleep. I will see you beautiful ones tomorrow. Gidge Is Wearing:

You Can’t Go In Here

I think everyone’s mom but mine had that room, that perfect living room. The room where things matched, and were coordinated, where things got dusted.  We never had that room, we had chaos and messy and mismatched furniture. When it came time to buy my own house in real life, having that room wasn’t much of a priority to me either – I coveted a proper dining room. But secretly I’d love to have a room where everything is as it should be. Where guests can drop in and you have no worries about what scary things might be hidden in the couch. This room is from Circa for the COLOR PROJECT and obviously the color is turquoise! UGH I forgot how much I love these shoes from Bliesen and Maitai. They’re for SLINK HIGH and they’re adorable. It’s fun to find awesome in your inventory some days. Now, Fameshed is open and I need to get over there. Come on, someone leave. Gidge is Wearing:

After A Journey of 900 Miles

I’ve been desperate for three days to sleep in my own bed and now that I’m here I can relax. I’m so glad to be home on Juicy again, where I can sleep listening to the waves crashing on the shore.  It’s a perfect spot for me, and I have to admit I feel so very spoiled living here. I can’t quite relax enough to get to sleep. Gone three days in SL is like being gone 18 days or something. That’s like whole relationship to some people! I wonder what I missed? I’m anxious to get back into my SLife, tomorrow is back to normal. If only I could convince my damn self to sleep. Gidge is Wearing:

Selfie Time At LEA

My travels have taken me to LEA and thank GOODNESS they haven’t banned Selfie sticks here because this is PERFECT for me! I may just start using this for everything. Do you have one yet from RC Cluster? You need one, it’s epic. It’s good to step away from my reality from time to time, if only to remind myself what it is.  I’m having a good time submerging myself in the question of this build – which came first – the chicken or the egg? I haven’t decided where to go next, someplace that is new to me, some place outside of where I feel at home for sure. Chances are very high that I’ll be bringing my selfie stick. Gidge Is Wearing:

And The Greatest Of These Is…

Sometimes you have one of those posts where you’re going to say a lot of things and then you realize you don’t have the mental energy for the follow up conversations that will happen? This is one of those posts. I’m travelling and thought I’d kick off with some swimming but I wandered into this place, and now I think my travels might just end up being a tour of LEA.

Start Your Day With Whimsy

So much to do today, I need to pack for a trip for a few days, I need to blog, I need to just do all my SL things but I decided instead that brunch with Whimsy had to come first. We plotted and gossiped the way women do and moaned over how we’d like some eggs benedict in real life now that we’ve been teased with it in SL.  She brought me a new bike so also instead of doing my work, I decided to go for a ride, heels and all.  The trees behind me don’t like my hair apparently.  Oh well, silly trees, my hair is LOVELY. One thing I did manage was to have my new living room delivered today, from Cheeky Pea that is out now at UBER. I love it, it’s cozy and looks great in my house. Now I’m just going to watch a LITTLE Netflix before I get busy. Ok just one episode of Sense8 or something. Just one. Maybe two. I PROMISE to get busy soon. Gidge is Wearing:

I Am Supposed To Be Working

But I’m not. Why not? Because Oh My Gacha is open and The Annex has an entire SET of fun beach stuff. And I live at the beach. So, you see my problem. How can I work right now when I have pretties?  I’ve worn the pointy finger for about three days now. I never wear some of the SLINK hands and I don’t know why, they’re great -so much versatility. My problem is I get some on and I leave them for days. But I’ve been thinking about it, and I’ve decided that there’s a great reason for me to wear this hand. Because I’m NUMBER ONE obviously. Just in case you forgot. Hope your Tuesday is beautiful!! No seriously I’m going to get busy soon. Really, I am. Gidge is Wearing:

A League Of My Own – Because Willis Took My Title

Every month after I pay tier I pick out something I want to get, usually something not small and treat myself. This month my goal was more appliers for my Lelutka face. I wear ARIA most of the time now (I feel like I should take the others for a stroll more often) and I’ve got a small closet of skins for it but my desire is that I can wear ANY of my favorite’s ANY TIME. I don’t want to take my head off to wear you.  It was stuck in my head that League and Pink Fuel had made appliers.  These are two of my favorites but Pink Fuel only made them in a tone I don’t own. LEAGUE however didn’t just make one set, YIKES Nena has made TWO different faces! Mill and Luna sport a ton of make up options for eyes and lips, freckles or no freckles and brows from Black to NO brow as you like. Above I’m wearing Luna with no freckles in Pale and blonde brows, mixing up the different make up options. Above me here is Luna in the no brow option. You can see, the make up options are really vast – from glamour to every day face.… Read the rest

Lingerie Maker To Her Royal Highness…Or Something

I’m picky in my SL. Pixel Gidge is not low rent. I suppose I could role play low rent by WHY. I only want the best, the things I know aren’t junk. Because of that, there are some brands I will literally wear the hell out of, that’s because they’re always going to be high quality and I don’t even have to WONDER how they will look on me. Take for instance, LUXURIA. In my little fantasy I keep Roslin locked away in a tower and she’s frantically sewing new lingerie for me to wear. I’ll feed her well but no one else can have my pretties. Luckily for you, that’s just a fantasy but I do covet her pretties very hard. She nails it every time she releases, sometimes smoldering sexy, sometimes adorable girl next door cute. I think in SL there should be stamps on stuff like the royal family gives companies that they use “Official tea maker of Her Royal Highness…” etc.  That way everyone could know the pickiest girls on the grid love it, so you know it’s good.… Read the rest

Bandana Day 2015… The End Is Here

It’s Bandana Day, the day we take off our hair just for a day, to show respect for those who have to do without. We have the luxury in SL to be anything, do anything, wear anything. In our real lives we’re constrained by biology in ways many people never talk about. Illness, disability, these things impact our real lives but in SL people can get away from them, ignore them and be free from the constraints that reality places upon us. But for one day we take off our hair to remember that beauty isn’t about hair, it isn’t about a thing you can see. Beauty is about who you are inside. Hair is the ribbon on the package. It’s what inside the package that matters. Hair Fair 2015 wraps up today. It’s your last chance to contribute to this amazing event by shopping at the wonderful shops that are participating. I hope you make it over if you haven’t yet. I hope to see more of you without your hair today. I’m so proud of everyone I’ve seen on the feeds already.… Read the rest

Sun Soaked

Pixel Gidge is exhausted from the sun she’s soaked up all day.  I’ve been struggling with a bikini top that worked for me, they were all just “off” no matter what body I was wearing, but this one I dug up from Luxe Paris – great for a big rack  . Unless you have a freakishly big rack, then I can’t help you. I’ve got a new dresser to find space for, I’m struggling with the idea that it might actually be time to move house – but how can I leave when my view is SO AMAZING? No I might just have to reorganize inside, this house is designed for viewing amazing scenery which I have. Yes, that’s my plan. Reorganize. But first you’re going to have to excuse me, I’ve got shower off. I’m dying of sweat. Gidge is Wearing:

When You Sober Up – HAIR FAIR IS STILL ROLLING

In my youth I was notorious for ONE MORE when I got home. Just ONE MORE. You hate for the fun to end, just one more drink, something fun before you let sleep take over. It’s a time waster, filling your hours until reality returns. But it provides relief from whatever you’re avoiding anyway – at least sometimes it does. Two things to share on this Thursday. I just realized that this dress I blogged the other day actually comes in sizes FITTED to the Belleza body – I’m wearing my Isis body and the version of the dresses FOR that body. HOT DAMN. That’s brilliant. This adorable short do and tons more are STILL available at HAIR FAIR which runs through the 26th. The crowds have thinned a bit and you can get in there and grab NOT ONLY the free awesome stuff (there’s tons) but so much great hair. This one is from OLIVE – I really like her hair. Give her a demo if you haven’t. She makes GORGEOUS blondes. I need to find my sleep and mark another day gone.… Read the rest

Poolside Blogger and Other Misunderstandings

My friends Whimsy and Sasy collaborate each round of My Attic for something wonderful. They make photoboxes for bloggers, or great items with lovely poses and props for everyone. When they passed me their item for this round of My Attic, my poor eyes that are adjusting to contacts (monovision, what fresh hell is this?) read “Poolside Blogger and Friends” in the description as this was something for bloggers, and their friends. “Oh nice, another photobox for bloggers YAY” my brain said. It’s not. It’s a big ass pool. Now, because everything at My Attic is 95L you can pick up this big ass pool, that has splashable water (my eyes can’t read well yet I have to sort that out later), pillows with poses and beach towels also just LOADED up with poses. OK WOW this is the best 95L priced item in a long time. I’ve decided now that I have a pool, that I’m going to spend my day outside in this teeny bikini from House of Hucci.… Read the rest

Set A Lovely Table

My grandmother was obsessed with  dishes, and setting a lovely table. She had dishes for sandwiches and soup. She had dishes for this party, and that party. She had no less than five full sets of dishes when she died, and twice that of small sets she’d bought for entertaining. I have this same obsession in both lives. Due to space constraints in RL I can’t quite get away with her level of dishes consumption, but I would if I could. A lovely table is inviting, it says “welcome to my home, I’m glad you’re here.” In my SL though, I’m always alone, so the message is just for me perhaps. Maybe I should set less place settings. It’s lovely but lonely. Regardless, I like it. You can get this welcoming new breakfast set from The Loft at COLLABOR88 this month. Gidge is Wearing:

No One Else Leaves Or The MerKitten Gets It

In the past week I’ve had three deaths around the edges of my life, 2 in SL and 1 in the RL. I’ve had it. Cajsa nailed it. It’s not a game if it makes you cry. Both of the people who died this week were not my besties. We didn’t talk “all the time”, we didn’t share secrets. But they were people who I took for granted, so my rage and grief is based in ego because I’m feeling sorry for myself that I didn’t value these people more. It’s causing me to evaluate myself, and wish I could do more for those who truly lost something, for those whose grief isn’t based in ego but in loss – some of whom are people I care about so very much in both lives.  So I’ve decided that we’re DONE for 2015. I need everyone close to me, and everyone NOT close to me to be well. Stay here. If I don’t need you, people I care about probably do. Don’t make me cook this merkitten to punish the gods for taking you away, because I’ll do it.… Read the rest

Friday Flowers

You might think Sascha’s Designs is just big old battleship sized ballgowns but you’d be missing out on a large part of what she releases these days if you did. She’s been making dresses and more casual wear (less formal?) for a while and she very frequently delights me with her releases. Such as this cheery dress recently released. It’s got a HUD and you can change it among four very fun summery prints. There are so many colors in this I had a hard time choose shoes and accessory colors. I pulled out some decor pieces from FANCY DECOR that were in a previous ARCADE round. They’re really cute, I’m going to have to find a spot for them in my house that isn’t in a corner. And with that, I’m ready to hit FLF and head into the RL. Have a wonderful Friday girls. Happy Shopping. Gidge is Wearing:

Baby You Can Drive My Car – to Hair Fair

I like the accoutrement that completes my SL, little touches here and there. I’ve just added a BIG touch – a BIG honking car. I’ve always been a fan of cars in my SL – my avatar has places to go, she can’t be expected to bike and scooter everywhere can she? She’s American – so she LIKES a big car. This new beast from HAN fit the bill and there’s room in the back for a car seat should I ever bring the baby back from Auntie Inventory. I could pile all sorts of friends in this beast! You can pick one up, or another model, if you need a new car, or just want one HERE. After all NEED is rarely the right word around here. I’m dancing around my vehicle with the sweet little AO from SLC at this month’s COLLABOR88. It’s adorable, reminds me of OMG WHAT DID I STEP ON and OH YAY THE BEACH all at the same time. Now if you’ll forgive me, I haven’t gotten a bandana yet and I’ll forget if I don’t pick one up.… Read the rest

Show Me The Hair That Stole Your Heart

Once upon a time there was a girl who was a blogger who wasn’t very experienced. She wasn’t jaded, she didn’t eyeroll at things that had been done 100 times. She didn’t log in and log out after getting her photos, she spent time and enjoyed her SL.  Her SL wasn’t silent, her SL was full of friends, not just acquaintances she didn’t talk to much. This is about that girl. That girl fell in LOVE with a hair that Gogo blogged and she HAD to have it.  I would link to Gogo’s post but knowing that dork, she probably purges old pics because she thinks they look dated. Regardless, it was there once. What was the hair? It was this. This was literally one of my Happiest Hair Fair Memories – seeing this hair, and having the Lindens to go buy it. I would love to see in comments or on plurk  the hair that for you, has a happy HAIR FAIR memory. Hair Fair isn’t just an event – it’s a celebration.

The String Mausoleum Has Your Hair Fair OUT THERE

Helena Stringer doesn’t like normal. In fact, I’d say she’s one of those people who believe normal isn’t healthy which I heartily agree with. I like it different, despite the fact that I normally rock a blonde haired blue eyed blogger girl, that’s a lazy comfort zone for me. Hair Fair is where I often find myself taking a step outside of that comfort zone , and The String Mausoleum is very often where I find that reality come to life. I’m not bringing you the gauntlet of the Hair Fair AWESOME from Helena but my three faves because I like things in threes. I pulled out some skins from MY UGLY DOROTHY for the occasion. I had kind of forgotten how pretty and unique these skins are, I should pop over there some time soon. Helena makes a nice blonde, add ten points to her score. I have two thoughts about this last hair do. What does it go with? Followed immediately by WHAT DOESN’T it go with? I used to have a friend who I know would’ve loved some of these, and maybe that’s why I love the Hair Fair – It makes me reminisce of great and wonderful people I’ve known, even if we no longer no one another.… Read the rest
