A Road Trip

“A relationship is like a road trip: You get bugs splattered on the windshield. By the time you see them, it’s too late, but you still keep going.”   Welcome to Braggsville by T. Geronimo Johnson I love this quote from the book I just finished reading, Welcome to Braggsville. It has the virtue of being funny and true. Like a road trip, you don’t always know the destination in a relationship, you surely do not know what you will encounter and a few bugs will get splattered on the way. And of course, you usually keep going, though maybe sometimes you should take the off-ramp. 
For my road trip, I wore the fabulous spy pants and top from ISON. I love the simple form that is made interesting with great design details such as the cutouts on the top and the fabulous graphic overlay on the pants. The N-Core NIKA heels have me ready for any bugs. I love the fedora and hair from Olive. It all comes together with the Deorum set of necklace, earrings, ring and bracelet from Kunglers.… Read the rest“A relationship is like a road trip: You get bugs splattered on the windshield.

I Hope You Don’t Mind My Explosive Love

I have decided that all annoying messages begin “I hope you don’t mind…”and then they say something super annoying. “I hope you don’t mind me saying blah blah blah” oh god yes I do mind hush. I don’t care. Shhhhhh, go back to where you came from. No one ever just messages you to say “hey i hope you don’t mind if i tell you that you’re lovely.” I think I might start doing just that. Today I’m living my slife with the goodness that RC Cluster continues to bring to my SL. As you can see I’m smiley face in love with what’s on my PC right now. What is it? Well I can’t tell you. A lady never cams and tells. RC Cluster helps me keep a tidy home with all of her housekeeping items. I should be sad to be cleaning but nobody likes a messy parcel! At least I look pretty doing it! Even if you accidentally smack yourself in the face, you can keep the swelling down so that your date night isn’t too ruined.… Read the rest

I’ll Be Bulletproof

Been there, done that, messed around
I’m having fun, don’t put me down
I’ll never let you sweep me off my feet
I won’t let you in again
The messages I’ve tried to send
My information’s just not going in I’m burning bridges shore to shore
I break away from something more
I’m not turned off to love until it’s cheap
Been there, done that, messed around
I’m having fun, don’t put me down
I’ll never let you sweep me off my feet This time baby,
I’ll be bulletproof… If you’re a bulletproof girl with a few scores to settle I would suggest you make your way to Collabor88 this month where Bee.bu and Teefy have collaborated (get it) on some very fashionable items for ridding yourself of enemies. From lipsticks with a blade to grenade perfume, your ability to surprise your victim in the powder room is assured. And that’s what’s important, isn’t it? I’m still sporting the Melissa head from Genesis that you can pick up at Collabor88 as well as a slipdress and shoes – also at Collabor88.… Read the rest

Without looking back

At LEA27, there is a new installation called The City that opened on January 31st. Ziki Questi did a great post about it here. I love its stark minimalist approach. It is a place to play with light and shadow. It also seems a wonderful place to highlight the extraordinary elegance of Zaara’s Thalia dress. Thalia is the Greek muse of laughter and the dress has clear Greco-Roman inspiration in its draping. I had to ask Zaara if it was named after Thalia Heckroth™ and she confirmed. I have a friend in my first life named Thalia, too, and sometimes I think they are the best evidence of names being destiny because they both have a joyful laugh and both are animated by injustice to act.
Zaara’s Thalia gown was released in eight colors at Collabor88. It was made to fit the Maitreya mesh body. I remembered this exquisite Nizam Jhumka necklace and earrings that are also from Zaara. She made this is in a colored set with diamonds, rubies and emeralds as well. The fun bob haircut is from D!va – and I added a beautiful fascinator from La Gyo.… Read the restWithout looking back

Satin, Leather or Latex from Flowey

If you’re like me you’re still mulling about your Valentine’s options in terms of what to wear. I can’t ever decide and end up with more choices than I need. Whenever I say need in terms of SL clothes I always think of that old saying “Must is not a word for princes.” In my mind it changes to “Need is not a word for fashion bloggers.” Regardless, this new dress from Flowey at Collabor88 should be on your must have list. Designed with the elegance of a slinky slip dress, this is available in leather, latex or satin textures which allows you to choose the look you’re going for.  It’s perfectly paired with heels from Tetra, which you’ll also find at Collabor88. These are for MID height feet. Also in the offering this round is a new head from one of my favorites – Genesis Lab. I’m not sure how they make so many heads so fast. This one is a pretty round faced girl. I really like this one a lot.… Read the rest

Accessorize With DeezCatz

It’s always nice when Collabor88 opens, and nicer when it’s a Prom and they can invite guests. This round I’m ECSTATIC because Pink Fuel is there and not only that….she released LELTUKA appliers. She’s made them for Simone, however I’m wearing them on Aria. I’m a rebel. I’ve determined to only blog in the colors of Valentine’s day until after the holiday, and I’m excited to say that this new cut out dress from Tres Blah fit my criteria (of course she stuck to the palette so of course). However, I think it’s a must have for your events this weekend, it’s a great date and dancing dress or whatever else you’re up to. I would put it on your list of things you need. Rounding out my look today is some excellently disheveled hair from D!VA and flawless heels from Baiastice – all to be found at COLLABOR88 this round. These hilarious, paranoid, cats can be found at COLLABOR88 also and they slay me.… Read the rest

Valentine’s For Your Soul

It’s Mardi Gras and that can only mean one thing, Valentine’s day is ALMOST HERE! I know yesterday I bemoaned the oncoming never ending red and pink sea that SL was about to come. But then I looked up and remembered OMG I LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY!! I can tell you WHY very easily. Valentine’s day has never been about romantic love to me. It’s about LOVE. Love comes in all shapes and sizes. Platonic, familial are just a couple. Romantic is great and yes all the heart shaped dildos and cupid buttplugs are definitely geared to a sexytimes romantic evening. But for me, I love just spending the day thinking of and celebrating ALL the people I love. Just because I’m single I won’t wave the I HATE VALENTINE’S flag. Instead I’ll focus on the people I love and be happy that they are part of my world. In fact, I’m sitting here thinking I should get my Valentine’s made soon! Love is something we’re lucky to have, even if it’s just one platonic friend or one family member.… Read the rest

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:

Quantum Fashion

The detectors don’t induce the phenomenon of wave function collapse; conscious observation does. Consciousness is like this giant roving spotlight, collapsing reality wherever it shines—and what isn’t observed remains probability. And it’s not just photons or electrons. It is everything. All matter…A testable, repeatable fault in reality.” Ted Kosmatka – The Flicker Men I am reading The Flicker Men, a book that could easily swallow you whole with its mind-bending sci-fi exploration of the implications of quantum physics. It starts with real science, with Feynman’s Double Slit Experiment that proves the duality of light. Light is both wave and particle.  Actually, just one year ago, researchers were able to photograph the first picture of light as particle and wave at the same time. It’s a cool picture. But then there is also the Observer Effect. The act of observing changes reality on the quantum level, including changing light from waves to particles in the Double Slit Experiment.… Read the restConsciousness is like this giant roving spotlight, collapsing reality wherever it shines—and what isn’t observed remains probability.

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

Blue is a deeply sneaky color.

  How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else? You cannot get a grip on blue. Blue is the sky, the sea, a god’s eye, a devil’s tail, a birth, a strangulation, a virgin’s cloak, a monkey’s ass. It’s a butterfly, a bird, a spicy joke, the saddest song, the brightest day. Blue is sly, slick, it slides into the room sideways, a slippery trickster. This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there’s nothing true about it. Blue is beauty, not truth. ‘True blue’ is a ruse, a rhyme; it’s there, then it’s not. Blue is a deeply sneaky color.”  ― Christopher Moore, Sacré Bleu: A Comedy d’Art
These pumps from fi.day come with a HUD to change the leg warmer colors. They can be found at Collabor88, where you can also find the denim skirt from Emery. I love the bare shoulder sweater from NYU. It has a color change hUD with six options.
Zaara’s fabulous earrings can be found at Collabor88 for just a few more days.… Read the rest“How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?

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:

I had no other choice but to stab him.

“We got into an argument over the color of love. I said it was pink, and he said it was red. So you see, I had no other choice but to stab him.” I swear it was pure coincidence that I chose this quote by Jacob Kintz for my Flickr picture titles today and not commentary on the propensity of some people to go from I disagree to I want you to die in a heartbeat. Incidentally, Jacob Kintz is so weird in a funny weird, not creepy weird way. He makes a living, I guess, from coming up with odd one-liners, quotable quotes brought to you by internet ads and click-bait. I admire people who find ways to make this new internet information economy work for them in new and odd ways.


Today I am wearing Peqe’s Shany dress for Shiny Shabby and topping it with a bolero from Lelutka that was a Christmas gift. I love shrugs and boleros because I like sleeves. I always have and probably always will. Boleros and shrugs are handy for adding some sleeves to sleeveless dresses that I like in all ways but sleeplessness.… Read the rest“We got into an argument over the color of love.

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
