I am an Aries (Zodiac)

It’s a true fact but it wasn’t until recently that I really paid much attention to what exactly being an Aries meant.  I was surprised to find out I am of the sun sign, I’m a leader and I tend to not get things done while starting many things.  Apparently, I’m blunt and to the point and will take on just about anyone not to mention having a competitive streak a mile wide.  It kinda explains a lot, except that part about being competitive, of which I am most certainly not.  I’m also not very me oriented (although that might be the result of having children because I used to be very me oriented…as in ‘me needs more sleep’ or ‘me needs more coffee’).   I do enjoy getting things going but I have a horrible habit of not sticking around until the end and I do adore a good day of procrastination (like right now, should be cleaning my house…I started with the kitchen and then got side tracked and came to blog). … Read the rest

Stipend Tuesday (otherwise known as the day without shoes OR pants)

This little adventure is certainly forcing me to be a bit more creative with pictures.  Nothing like trying to hide the fact that I am shoeless again  but worse…pantless.  I did end up with 29L which will go towards next weeks shopping spree and really, I blame the entire thing on Frozen, which had modeling poses out at Stuff in Stock (not to be confuse with Stuff in a Sock, my name for it that does not even remotely exist but what a cool name for an event!) that I needed because it added 5 new poses to my goal of 10 before I can stop buying poses.  See how this is working?  (more after the cut including one well placed not exactly nude but yep..halfway nude NO PANTS picture–just saying))

Stipend Tuesday (otherwise known as ‘no shoe day’)

This starts my new Tuesday adventure called “Stipend Tuesday.”  It’s where I take my alt and try to find a complete outfit and a pose with just the 300L’s that she receives every Tuesday morning.   Whether I complete the outfit or not, I blog it.  I know many of us are on tight budgets and those budgets are based on what we get each Tuesday while occasionally popping a few extra lindens in for good measure (I usually do that with my main account once a month and that has to  last me all month).  I have to say, this was a little harder then I thought and took some careful considerations as to what I was going to buy and what I wasn’t.  (more information after the cut, including the rules I established for myself)

SLBuddy Walk (Amacci, Immerse from SLBW & a side of Tameless hair)

The other day, I was cruising blogs and found the Goofnutz blog which was showcasing items from the SL Buddy Walk event that is raising awareness and funds for Down Syndrome.  The fair goes from March 16-31st and has some great designers participating with  many great items donating 100% to the cause.  (more after the cut including credits and some rambling)

If you give Misty a link…..(lassitude & ennui, arcade, clawtooth, diesel works and more)

Sometimes, I manage to amaze myself with my ‘ooh look shiny thing’ abilities.  Lassitude & ennui is definitely making clothes (in case you didn’t already know this but I bet you did!) and will have this absolutely amazing corset, Elena, for sale at the Adore and Abhor Five Year Anniversary Event available in many different colors.  The event starts on March 16th and has not just lassitude and ennui but many other designers as well to help celebrate Adore and Abhors 5 years of creating.  Therefore, you should go.   But before you go, you have to head over to  free*style shop and pick up the free (yes, it’s free!) pearls necklace also from lassitude & ennui.  (more after the cut including my shiny moment and a visit to the arcade because of said shiny moment…plus pictures)

Divine Miss M Fundraiser and Yard Sale

This past week, friends on SLU and in SL alike lost a wonderful person, Mabb Delwig.  Although I only knew her through posts on SLU, she was loved by many and that includes her partner, Shane Fairlock.   The SLU community has come together once again to help Shane visit with Mabbs family and have started a fundraiser, including yard sale.  You can read the heart felt condolences and information on the fund raiser/yard sale at SLU. In order to offer some sort of help with the fundraiser, many of us have started going through our inventories to find quality items from outfits to landscaping  that are no copy to place up for sale.   There are also some amazing items from creators such as Bliensen + MaiTai, Phenix and more who have placed up their wares with proceeds going to the cause.   Items go pretty fast and are constantly being updated, so make sure you grab a landmark and go back often. If you have ever heard some of the oldbies talk about Last Call and the creator (who passed away many years ago), Ginny Talamasca and wanted outfits either for the first time or to complete your own collection….now is the time to go get them. … Read the rest

Have a little Perception with your White Widow at Zodiac

Perception has this amazing Pisces necklace at the Zodiac Event, unique and with gold or silver option, it’s a must have for everyone.   I also found White Widow at the event and picked up this lovely face tattoo that I coupled with Beautiful Freaks Girl Poison eye make up.  Beautiful Freak  is the layers under the eyes and White Widow is the layer on the side of the eyes.  Pretty, pretty, pretty!   I’ve also been coveting this gown named Society by Volstead (as well as the rest of the collection) and finally picked it up the other day.   Many different colors to chose from, but I went with Ice as it’s a beautiful shade of blue with gold accents that warmed my cold little heart  (more after the cut so click to read the ramblings)

lassitude and ennui at Zodiac (and the 2304 Rain Sim)

Lassitude and ennui is (or has been?!) dipping into clothes and made this absolutely beautiful Naiad sun dress for the Zodiac Pisces Event.  Six different colors in the pack including rose, teal, cream, peach, ink and grey.  Beautiful ruffles along the bottom and bowed in the back, this is original mesh work at it’s finest.  It comes in small to large and includes the alpha layers plus additional ones that you can put together yourself (and if you are like me and don’t know how, read more after the cut!)

There is a Frick in the House!!!

There comes in a time in everyone’s life where they realize they are three steps behind and to the left of everyone else.  Usually this happens  when I discover a designer who I thought had left the grid but really hasn’t.  Then I get  “I MUST HAVE ALL THE THINGS” and immediately teleport over, grab whatever I can and vow through my bloody heart that I’ll be back for more.   Oh yes…..yes yes yes yes….Frick is in the house!  Frick. Frick. Frick.   I have just about everything Frick ever released prior to 2009.  True Fact.  And I thought she left the grid and the items were relegated to the ‘rarely wear’ folder in the depths of my inventory with a sad face but knowing that I probably wouldn’t blog them because it makes no sense to blog things that are no longer available (exception to this is poses–self rules and all that and YAY run-on sentences!).  (more after the cut, so click for Frick….)

Woeful Wednesdays and I’m loving it all….

I’m really enjoying the stores in the Woeful Wednesdays 50L event because it gets the dark mind going, which is always a good thing.  This week, I hit up Beautiful  Freak, Snow Bound along with Stone Misery just to name a few.  Beautiful Freak is always a must stop on the list whenever they participate and this time was no exception.  Fat Pack Evening eyes which is also a brand new release from them this week is a must have.  I chose the crimson (hello, this is me we’re talking about!) but there is also shades of blue, green, violet, brown and much more.  (more pictures after the cut and credits with more general rambling)

Tuli and the Cupcake Sim along with Perception, EMO-tions hair and

Tuli is back with her wonderful level of skin creation and celebrating the opening of the Cupcake sim with a 70L skin.  Naturally, the only option is to hop over and pick it up because well….Tuli!  The best part is that Perception is releasing a new necklace out for Zodiac, Aquarius, that I have tried two other different pictures of which were making me cranky because they just weren’t looking good.  However, that all changed when I saw EMO-tions new hair style and this beautiful outfit from Violent Seduction (more pictures and information after the cut)

Woeful Wednesday

First time I ever heard of this event and had a great time finding new stores and some pretty odd things to round out my collection for the book shelf.  Before I get to that, first…..House of Rain (which is how I found out about Woeful Wednesdays) has a beautiful bracelet out called Luxury of Tears.  The bracelet is 50l and the one that is on sale for WW is titanium / aquamarine.  However, I’m showing the platinum and onyx necklace and bracelet set because it goes better with the outfit that is also from WW (more after the cut)

Love the Boots (but at first, hated the pictures)

I’m  not sure if there is some sort of label for people like me that take for-freaking-ever to blog because they can’t get a picture to look right, so give up for a day.  Just to come back to it the next day and fight the urge to toss the entire computer out the window in anger and annoyance.  That’s been my week in a two sentence, poorly constructed, structure.  Eventually, I figured it out by changing outfits and viewers along with watching some amazing learning tutorials that are linked at the end of the blog post.  However, I did keep the boots because they are lassitude and ennui which means all things wonderful and amazing for boots.  (more stuff after the cut)

Caged (BENT, EMO-tion, Perception & Gothmas by Gaslight)

EMO-tions is releasing a new hair style on Saturday and it’s this beautiful up sweep piece of pretty called Karma.  Side swipe bangs, a bit hanging over the shoulder and we have what I call, hair love.  While deciding how to blog this hair, I went on a pose hunt and found some amazing things but oddly enough, saving them for later because I remembered that I had the Caged pose set by BENT in my inventory and have been trying to figure out a way to use it.  Guess what?  I found it!  (more information on Perception at Zodiac and Gothmas by Gaslight after the cut)

Perception (zombified)

Perception has released a new dress called Bustier which comes in many different colors and is perfect for zombies and beautiful people alike.  All one piece and done completely in mesh, this is a must have dress for any zombie or high society person.  We’ve pretty much established that I’m not so good with high society so my common sense tells me to take it to a high society person trapped in the woods turned zombie who also happens to be sporting horns.  Because what zombie does not love horns?  (rhetorical, don’t answer that and more after the cut)

Happy New Year (Gothmas by Gaslight)

It’s been at least a week since I’ve blogged and I’m bogged down by real life for at least two more days.  I took these pictures before my holiday break began (and before I learned how to preset posts to show up even if I wrote them out in advance and earm…still haven’t learned that…possibly a resolution?  We’ll see) and I figured while the house is quiet, I’ll get them up on this here blog.  Talent, I would claim to have it.  Anyway!  Gothmas by Gaslight goes until January 15th and has all the pretty goth and non-goth things.  Like this dress.  And that lovely chair and the water fountain!  We have a few more cold, bitter and very snowy months ahead of us so go forth and get your Gatcha on at Gothmas by Gaslight! (more random after the cut and credits too)

Gothmas by Gaslight (gacha addict event of all things Goth and Not)

is a Gacha Event that begins tomorrow, December 15th, and runs through January 15th.  A quick note on that link, I’ve tried a few times to get it to work and it tells you page not found on the Loft Blog.  Look up to the top of the blog and you will see the clickable link.  Not a clue why it’s not linking right for me…sorry!  A month long festival of all things Goth and Not.  The Not part comes in because many of the items available can be used to be GAF (love it still!) or not.  Take this beautiful dress by Wild Serenity for instance and the hat/chokers by Faerycat Designs.  Neither are specifically goth and instead can be used for any look involving the holiday theme.  (more information and pictures with credits after the cut)

It all Starts with Good Intentions….

then goes horribly wrong some where along the way.  Over at Second Destiny, Boudica decided to try cute through some Gacha’s at the Arcade then saw some not so cute things and apparently got side tracked.  You can read about her adventure on her blog (and thank goodness she’s back to blogging again!  She finds some great stuffs).  Anyway, I decided to ‘rise to the challenge that did not exist’ and attempt my own idea of cute.  I was doing really good for a while there too….well until I had to find something cute in my inventory anyway (more after the cut!)
