Read Any Good Books Lately?

Foxes has released this beautifully fitted and textured dress in a mind-numbing 24 different versions from sparked to ombres to solids with standard sizing and sizing for specific mesh bodies. Obviously, the Foxes creator has given up on sleep. The long list for the  Man Booker prize was announced yesterday and I have only read one of them. That is one reason it is my favorite book list. It goes beyond bestseller lists and borders, elevating excellent fiction from all over the world. Usually by the time the next list is out, I have read my way through the list. It is changing, though, until 2013, the authors had to come from the Commonwealth and now it is open to authors from any country so long as they write in English and their books are published in the UK. For the first time there are five American writers on the list. Will this change the complexion of the list? I don’t know. I hope not. I have been on a lucky streak lately, reading several good books in a row.… Read the rest150629_005

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 love Sparkles!

      I am again wearing some of the amazing glittery, sparkly textures that you can find at collabor 88 this month. I continue to be totally impressed and excited whenever I wear any of them. This dress is by Foxes and it is not only gorgeous, it also comes in fitmesh sizes for Physique, Maitreya, and Belleza Isis/Freya. I feel so pretty and sexy in this dress! I thought about fatpacking the sparkly ones and I really think I should have done that because I want more of them. They are so pretty. My cute updo is new by Doe at the current round of Season's Story. This event ends July 31st so you only have a few more days to get the items you want at the event. 
      Also ending July 31st is My Attic and my NanTra selfie stick pose set is at this event for only 95L. Last, my shoes are noteworthy. They are a special discount offer from N-core. You get 8 colors of these clear strappy shoes for only 395L. It is like getting 8 shoes for the price of one and they are made for N-core, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP high feet.… Read the rest

Attitude is Everything

      July 26th is Bandanna Day in Second Life closing out an incredible Hair Fair that has raised a lot of money for Wigs for Kids. My Bandanna was made by Lovely Disarray. I am showing my support for this charity event in SL and all of the people affected by cancer. My mom had colon cancer a few years ago and it was really horrible. After surgery and chemotherapy, she beat it and has continued to do so (YAY!). It made me chuckle inside to put this bandanna on in SL because my mom never wore one. She bought a wig and wore that and we do that every day in SL. We are all bald in Second Life!

      I was curious about how this related to real life events and so I looked it up.  International Bandanna Day is sometime in October with different groups celebrating it on the 18th, 25th, and 30th. It was originally started by CanTeen an Australian organization that supports teens that have cancer.

Late and Early

You know when that hour between super late and hella early creeps up on you? It's not often, I try to hop on my pillows like a responsible type adult lol but a lot of thoughts have been tip toe-ing through my mind and so I'm resting but not sleeping. On this occasion, I think it was a good place. So much is happening lately and I'm trying to process it all. But I'm fairly happy, happier than I've been in awhile and this particular day, at that particular hour…I wasn't plagued by thoughts. I took a small amount of comfort in them. Who knows…things could be looking up for me ♥ enjoy your weekend! Glam Affair – Luna skin – Jamaica Tone

It Started with the Silliest Donuts at the Fair

Today marks one year of blogging on wordpress. I had decided to blog cute finds in Second Life on the new blog, and I left the jewelry blog behind on blogspot. I have learned a lot about blogging in the past year. Thankfully, I have had help from the SL Blogger Support group. They have … Continue reading It Started with the Silliest Donuts at the Fair

I am not ready.. for the end of days.

I didn’t know what to blog today, I feel in a bit of a rut, someone sent me an IM yesterday and it made me think about my blogging style. I don’t really *have* a style, sometimes I have more time to spend and put a scene together, other times I just love playing dress up, so that’s all I do.   They didn’t mean anything by what they said and we had a nice chat, but I was asked why I didn’t do more of my “make an effort and do a scene” pictures, as they were fab… Maybe I need to blog less and spend more time on the pics, or maybe I need to carry on the way I am. I don’t know! I don’t use Photoshop, I just fiddle around on Picmonkey and with windlights. So anyway, a thoughtful picture today, maybe. or not. So here I am, running for shelter, following precariously large cat prints in there, WHO KNOWS WHAT I WILL FIND?!  SL is about adventure, and fun… that’s how I see blogging.  I do it the way I do it for fun, some days I have loads of time and I can do that, other days I have a RL job, a RL family and a life… so SL comes second to that, obviously.  … Read the restI am not ready... for the end of days.

I’m hearing what you say, but I just can’t make a sound

Just a few more days left of Hair Fair 2015. Don't miss a chance to pick up lovely hair styles while helping a fantastic charity, Wigs for Kids. Also, since this is the 10th Anniversary of the HF, there are plenty of free gifts! Why on earth would you want to miss out?

I am wearing the 4 different styles from LeLutka for Hair Fair 2015. Beautiful doesn't even describe them. They are just all so gorgeous, I am stumped to figure out which I love the best. They all just scream out "adore me", so I listen and do. I am usually in black hair in SL, well for most of my nearly 9 years since I rezzed but the LeLutka tones are just so fun to play with that I couldn't resists. Check out all your options; so much fun!

I paired the hair with the lovely Mermaid Jewelry Bra from Baiastice that is currently available at Collabor88. How well made and pretty are those! Love! So perfect.

Meep meeeeep. Aida of Glam Affair made new Yolandi skins for ShinyShabby and I am thrilled!
It is a gacha release and the rares are in Exotic tone.… Read the rest


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

Hair Fair Designers — Mirja Mills

I discovered EMO-tions in April 2010 thanks to a blog post by Sugar Planer. I became a fan of her romantic and wild styles. There is something so undisciplined about Mirja Mills hair. It wants to move and be free. Even with the arrival of mesh, her hair has the feeling of movement and freedom. Mirja Mills Self Portrait – 2014 EMO-tions Stephanie It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? Mirja Mills: Craziest , most exciting and silliest in all was the first year .. when I was sooo addicted that logging out meant pain The best feeling was to realize that there were people who liked what I create. And awesome always was and is to make wonderful friends in a virtual world. EMO-tions Stephanie IOF: What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you?Read the restMirja Mills Self Portrait - 2014

Blue Pier-iod

Why yes I did make a cheesy reference to Picasso's period of paintings. What can I say wearing that much blue and being on pier just made it too easy. I however am no where near as talented as the famed painter. Thought it would be fun to change things up and wear a more "non-traditional" hair color for a change.

I liked how the hair sort of matches the fading colors of the shirt and shorts I am wearing. You could almost think I planned it that way. It's true I did, but that is part of the fun of playing dress up. I will leave you with the credits now because my coffee hasn't quite kicked in so my brain cells aren't exactly fired up. Maybe I just need a coffee IV for mornings.

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:

Definition- Syzygy: A kind of unity, an alignment of three celestial bodies. 

     NanTra created a really amazing new pose set, Syzygy, that is at the current round of Genre. This pose set was created with models in mind and the animations move smoothly when transitioning between the 8 poses and their mirrors that are included in this set. It would be really cool to see this set on the runway.

     I have been continuing to enjoy all the sparkly items at collabor 88. I can't believe all the gorgeous textures. I am so impressed! I am loving this Under the Sea theme.

Witch of the Sea

Anyone can be a mermaid but it takes some one truly...special to become a sea witch. This witch does not have any issue with the denizens of the sea, it's those who float above the surface that she loathes. She has her reasons for being less than thrilled with sailors upon the sea. She once was a kind and gentle soul until a sailor broke her heart. She made a deal with the Goddess of the Sea to be able to find and punish the sailor who broke her heart. She then went on to avenge the broken hearts these sailors caused around the world, causing their ships to wreck, losing not only their cargo, but theirs lives as well.

She has many necklaces, each of them contains a piece of the ship that she has visited her wrath upon. They are her trophies. Maybe one say someone can break through her hardened heart and make her love again. Till then sailors should beware.

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:
