everything always comes to an end. sometimes, endings can lead to sadness && sometimes endings can lead to more freedom, happiness and relief than expected. but nevertheless, my own ending can only be defined as… bittersweet
with months of rl insanity, my blogging time in sl has taken a hit. and rather than thinking of it as an annoyance, i’ve come to think of it as a blessing in disguise. without feeling the need to blog, i’ve found myself actually enjoying
my second life when i get the chance to log in. and it’s been wonderful.
so even after almost three years of off-and-on hard work, i’m ending it here.
to all the designers i’ve come to know in second life: thank you
. it’s been my absolute pleasure to showcase your wonderful items in the best way i can.
to everyone who has ever read my blog: thank you
. every single visit to my little corner of the internet means quite a lot to me.
to anyone who took the time out of their day to leave me an IM saying how much you enjoyed my blog.… Read the rest
, it is *too* early in the morning right now in my area of the world. the sun is barely high enough in the sky to make it light out && yet here i am, awake. now, sometimes i don’t mind an early start
to the day, but today… mmh
, i dunno if i am feelin’ it yet. maybe i need a cup of coffee…
…and, perhaps, a best friend to prance around in my underwears with.
cause, y’know, that’s the best thing to do at the buttcrack of dawn. ;P and luckily for us, there is a *hunt* going on right now to supply us with said underwears… free of charge~
the dirty pillows hunt
started at the beginning of the month && bff vivi
and i were pretty excited to tuck in to it. me, i was most excited for the fact that free lingerie is the best lingerie (considering out of all the categories of clothing there are in my virtual wardrobe, the smallest folder is for bras ‘n’ panties), but for vivi… she was excited because this hunt includes boobies
.… Read the rest
so! i’ve showed off my new bedroom already && today, i’m posing in part of my living room…
and i have been putting a few last finishing touches
on our new home.. y’know, the little details that make things look more “lived in”. and since our living room is so huge (ie, there’s enough room for a full living room set while *still* leaving half the room undecorated), she and i decided to put down a cute dining room set… even though we don’t have a kitchen. ;P only in sl!
and so my look for today is very appropriate for lounging around my house, something comfy but still cute.. while i rez and re-rez candles and books and paintings and picture frames and flower pots.
this cute cream-colored mesh top i’m wearing is *new* from sakide
. there’s lots of new releases
at sakide, all of which are awesome separates. ponchos(!), jeans, stockings, boots.. but these v-neck tees were probably my favorites out of the bunch.… Read the rest
i am in *love* with the newest round of
…not only is the color palette gorgeous
(shades of deep orange, golden yellow && cool teal-blue), but just about everything i spied there was callin’ my name~
collabor88 is one of those events that i look most forward to every single month. the mixture of home furnishings (which *really* helps, considering i’ve a brand new home to finish decorating!), fabulous fashion, accessories and even poses is all kinds of awesome. but this round, i found *so* many things i honestly flipped out for that i couldn’t even fit everything into one look. the collections just keep getting better && better and this round was definitely no exception.
the dress i’m wearing here is *so* sexy. it’s from hucci
and i absolutely love
it. the turtleneck collar, the length of the skirt, the lovely suede texturing…. and the way it moves… it is just flaw free.… Read the rest
if you’ve followed my blog at all over the years, you’ll know that
&& i have lived together as roomies in sl for quite a while. last summer
she and i bought a small beachy parcel and set up a house there together… there were lots of pictures here on my blog of us in our home. but this week, she ‘n’ i decided to move… and what an undertaking that was!
we’re *mostly* moved in… not everything is decorated and we’re still in the stages of figuring out what to put where… but since my bedroom is just about finished, i decided i’d pose there for my bloggity pics there today.
our land is still beachy, so our furnishings for the moment is in shades of cream, khaki, blue, and yellow. but i am really liking it && the entire sim is gorgeous, so vivi and i have had no problems settling right in~
i promise once it’s all decorated, i’ll snap some pics.. but for now, you’re stuck seein’ me in my bedroom.… Read the rest
so it’s been a few days since my last post, and i have a very good reason for that.. i swear.
i’m not moving in rl… but i am in sl. and i forgot how time consuming it can be to get everything set back up! bff vivi and i have been working the last few days on setting up our new house and our new parcel, but once we’re done decorating (and redecorating… and redecorating a third time) i’ll be able to get back to blogging normally! and that may include a li’l tour of our new home, so, at least there’s that to look forward to? xP ❤

i’m kind of…
with my look for today. powder blue isn’t *typically* the shade one associates with the good ole red, white and blue.. but that ended up being my color scheme for the day~
and it *all* started with this cherry print skirt.
i picked it up from teefy
@ the new fameshed
collection because… it’s cherries(!). this print is so
cute and i love the way these skirts fit. high-waist skirts are always super sexy, especially when they’re nice and short like these are, but i chose to wear the skirt underneath a large ‘n’ comfy hoodie (from ispachi
— this light blue color is wonderful!) for a more cute, casual look.
these shoes from g field
were *perfect* for this look… because while i grabbed the black pair, most of the shoe is totally customizable. the upper half, the toe, the sole && the laces are all texture change, so i was able to change my shoes to match my red && blue look.… Read the rest
hi, have you seen my awesome chair?
my chair has horns and a raven
. my chair > your chair.
i have this chair because i wanted something funky to pose with for my look for today. there really was no *need* for a chair, but i found this one at handverk
(because maybe.. just maybe.. i was there eying up a few more pairs of heels, y’know, to go with my sweet pink penis pumps
) and i was compelled to buy it. i mean, it has horns(!) and a raven(!!).. what more needs to be said?
so to not detract from the awesomeness of this chair, i decided to dress understated
…….. with gray skin, purple-tipped ears, red eyes and some crazy eye makeup. ..*coughs*
anyway! my look for today is a combination of a few things i wanted to show off, so let me touch on ‘em here before i get too sarcastic. these huge platform’d boots i’m wearing are from sakide
and if you act *fast*, they might still be available to grab! they were a 100L special for halloween and, as i’m sure you’re aware, halloween is over… but these boots are still great for beyond just halloween.… Read the rest
ah, november… even though it is undeniably autumn now that halloween is over, and i’ve woken up every day recently in my rl to typical fall weather with cold winds && lotsa rain (damn you, hurricane sandy!), i wasn’t really feelin’ the whole
sort of look for today.
and it has a *lot* to do with these shoes. but i’ll get to that in a moment~
most of this look is made up of things i’ve had floatin’ around in my inventory for a li’l while, which is.. refreshing to do, sometimes. i know i talk a lot here about the black hole that is my virtual wardrobe and even though at the moment it is mostly
organized, there still are things i rediscover in there that i forgot i had. it’s nice to go shopping in my own inventory && put together a “new”
look with stuffs i’ve bought in the past. y’know, give them fresh new life and all that!
i grabbed this bra from sn@tch
, during a recent sale.… Read the rest
it’s getting *clooooooser*! only *two* more days until halloween.. are you excited as i am!?
the costume look i’ve got for today is another one for
halloween on a budget
. i already did one costume
on the cheap && today, i’ve got a second one~
i know it’s already made rounds on the feeds, but i could *not* resist blogging this dress from g field
myself. it’s *free* and so
adorable.. and perfectly halloween. and i immediately saw it as a very appropriate dress for a witch to wear.
so i added in some more free accessories.. like the orange ‘n’ black nails + bracelet combo i’m wearing here is a *group gift* for candy nail
group members. you know i love my prim nails && the gifts from candy nail are always lovely, so i was excited to see these out for the taking. the set comes with a pair of earrings as well, which i’m not wearing here, but it all works well for adding in some extra halloween colors into a look.… Read the rest
you ever get that feeling like… someone’s watching you?
yeah, me neither. *shrugs* wonder where that feeling comes from anyway…
so! today, i’ve got a.. pretty lady lost in the woods
kind of costume look. this gorgeous dress from sakide
, which is out @ the cinema
event, inspired the look i put together for today. i was thinking of a dark, windy night…. a bright, full moon overhead… and creepy, ominous surroundings with only a single handheld lantern to light the way. i think i achieved that, what say you?
instead of a forest, i used one of my favorite spots for photography && headed over to innsmouth
, which ended up being the *perfect* spot. the fog, the dilapidated buildings, and the fact that i was totally *alone*
worked for the kind of mood i was trying to set. it looks spooky and wonderful and absolutely fitting.
it’s just a shame i was all by myself… i mean, *completely* by myself… because on a night like that, having someone else there to keep me company would’ve been a big relief..… Read the rest
queen for a day..
…complete with my very own minion!
this look was *all* for fun.. and inspired by these adorable plastic crowns @ collabor88
. i knew i had
to do an evil fairy queen kind of look with this crown and my *petite* li’l friend here was more than willing to dress up with me. she seemed to think she was a teeny tiny princess, but alas… she is my minion instead! /me cackles maniacally….
this costume all started with the crown, but it really came together when i started playing around in my inventory. i got lucky with the halloween gatchas @ the depraved nation
and was able to snag these super
cute horns by chus
in red… which matched this dress i’ve had for *ages* from katat0nik
quite nicely. some freebie
kiss-dotted stockings by sheer
&& a pair of color-change pumps from gos
matched, too, and when i added the wings (because *every* evil fairy queen needs wings!) from epic
and this wonderfully sparkly wand (because *every* evil queen needs a wand, too!) from love always
..… Read the rest
halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.
so, apparently i like quoting mean girls
… but! i figured it was a fitting quote, considering the costumes bff vivi
&& i are wearing in my post for today..
i’ve done creepy, i’ve done cute, i’ve done character cosplay…. time for somethin’ simply sexy
for halloween! and there is little that’s sexier than two playboy bunnies.
all we need is a nice tray of martinis to serve..
aaaaanyway! the key to these looks are these mesh bodysuits from hucci
. we both picked these up @ collabor88
several rounds ago, but thankfully these sets are still available at the hucci mainstore. vivienne
is wearing the entire set here — including the cuffs, collar, ears && tail — and these are *perfect* for a halloween costume all in one.
i accessorized my look with an rabbit ear ‘n’ tail set i picked up from o.m.e.n.

when i was younger, i was
with batman. legit obsessed. the batman animated series was smack dab in the middle of my childhood — i’d watch it *every. single. day.* after school. and my obsession with batman all started with a little movie called batman returns
. i’m really dating myself here, but i remember when that movie came out… and i remember being totally fascinated by it.
as i’ve grown older, i still love me some batman (for evidence, see see right here
) and i’ve also come to love all things tim burton… and the two original batman movies *still* rank pretty damn high on my list of favorites. michael keaton will forever
be batman to me. but my favorite character, hands down, in all of batman-verse…
michelle pfeiffer’s catwoman was *it* for me. she is
catwoman… anne hathaway who? i mean, i know selena kyle was originally a brunette
, but to me? she’ll always be a crazy feline-obsessed *blonde* bombshell who looks amazing in skin-tight leather.… Read the rest
i really love how the entire grid seems to change with rl seasons… i’m seeing less && less bright green grass and more gorgeous fall foliage. and while i was on the warrumbungles
sim (shopping, of course x3), i realized just how pretty the scenery was outside the store i was in. so naturally, i couldn’t resist taking a stroll down the cobblestone street and snapping my blog pics for today there.
and this windlight setting i used made the pretty trees behind me seem to glow
, which was a wonderful effect. i rarely post process my blog pics here, the only thing i tend to do is mess a bit with brighness/contrast and sometimes smooth out jaggies on the avatar mesh, so the backdrop you see here is all in-viewer goodness. i used a windlight by elysium eilde
(with a few tweaks for more cloud coverage in the sky) and it was absolutely perfect for painting a pretty autumn picture.
now onto my look…
the skin i’m wearing today is from leafy

welcome to my dark side…
…as if you’ve not seen it already. ;P
there’s *new* stuffs from some of my favorite brands && all of it is so
perfect for halloween. or, y’know, everyday-wear if you’re me.
the skull-face tattoo && the multi-ring ear piercing i’m wearing above are new
as a collab by nuuna’s
and haus of darcy
… and i cannot tell you how hard i fell for both. the piercing is partially mesh — the long spiked piece in my earlobe is mesh and awesome
— and includes the facial tattoo in varying degrees of opacity for both men and women.
it’s available @ the fair
event, the collection just rolled over to some really great new goodies, and if you’re anything like me.. you *need* this set. it is to die for (haw, no pun intended).
now, the skin i’m wearing underneath nuuna’s beautiful skull-face…
…is just one of *many* released from glam affair
.… Read the rest
had enough halloween? not me!
to be fair, i’d wander around the grid like this even when it’s not
halloween… but these “costume” kind of looks are so fun for me to put together && i could not resist doing something a li’l spacey!
this look here involves a lot of good stuff, so i’ve got lots to talk about!
first, the dress… it screamed
*sci fi* to me. it’s new from glam affair
&& is out @ fameshed
. i love the super structured shoulder pieces on this dress, it definitely looks to me like some sort of cybernetic uniform and it inspired my entire look for today~
next, the booooots(!). these are found @ the cinema
event, by decoy
. that entire event is just amazing — from the build, to the theme, to all the goodies offered there — and these boots in, appropriately enough, the sci fi section were one of my favorite grabs. i love the shape of them and the fit.. and those colored stripes towards the foot are color change in either solid or glittery choices!… Read the rest
