Back into Routine

Pixel Gidge struggled for a week to get her life back on track.  Travelling through multiple airports and trudging through foreign lands wore her out. Sure, it was amazing awesome times, and getting to see one of your favorite people ever is worth any amount of tired but still, getting back TO your life can be a challenge. She’s back on track, trying to keep everything going now with the help of her little dog. Her house is messy and she’s got to spend some time cleaning today I predict.  I’ve discovered a new to me brand and found out that I’m a total dork this brand has been around FOREVAH but hey I’m still in love. If you haven’t checked out the new releases at skin fair from ALASKA METRO run don’t walk – so gorgeous! I love the makeup choices and the skin is beautiful. Gidge is Wearing:

The Owls Have It

  Emery released pencil skirts and sweaters at Collabor88 this month. Both are great separates for mixing and matching, but the pencil skirts in particular are investment pieces. They are beautifully crafted as you can see in the picture below where I am sitting and you can see that the interior is lined so there is no alpha messing up the picture.  The shoes are from fi.day and are also at Collabor88. So is the house, but the credits for the house and decor will be in the next post. The hair is from Exile for Collabor88. I love shorter styes and this one’s casual style is perfection. Aeryn is the new skin from PXL Creations released a Skin Fair. Here you can also see the lovely earrings that go with the necklace above and also with the ring in the top photo. They were released for St. Patrick’s Day and feature Celtic knots and a single gem. The metal and gems can be changed with a touch script. In honor of the holiday, I went with emerald.

Mirrors of Beauty

I ran the gauntlet yesterday, getting my stamp card completed for ENCHANTMENT. I may actually end up going back and picking up another item and running it again, as there was more I really loved at the event and hey, lovely free gifts are good. But for this morning, I’m having trouble getting moving even with my little dog Spike reminding me we need to get going. He’s a pushy little bastard to be sure.  The gift I chose were the hand mirrors from Kalopsia, because decor items are an addiction. These are just lovely. I promptly lost one someplace on my land while placing it – you actually get THREE with your stamp card. But I’ve got two sitting out for those moments when I just gave upon myself in greater detail than my bureau mirror. Enchantment closes this week – don’t forget to check it out!  Gallery and SLURLS are located HERE. Gidge is Wearing:

‘Twas Beauty Killed the Beast

This month at ENCHANTMENT it’s all about Beauty and the Beast.  I’m wearing a side swept braid style from DUE that’s really an adorable look, it reminds me of the 10949433 sweet braid styles on Pinterest I can’t actually do in RL to my hair. Enchantment is the Stamp Card event so remember, just one purchase gives you a stamp card, which you can then hop about to the participating merchants, get a stamp by touching the Stamp Card Vendor and once you have THEM ALL you can visit the gift center and pick up a free item from one of the vendors this month. If you buy two items, you get two stamp cards and can get TWO free gifts, and so on. I love a stamp card event, they’re fun and I always end up buying stuff I didn’t mean to as it gets me into stores I haven’t been to before. Oh no, shopping, NOT THAT! You can hop over to Seraphim for the entire ENCHANTMENT GALLERY as well as a peak at the prizes! Gidge is Wearing:

The CIIIIIRCLE OF LIIIIIIFE

I always wondered how Yard Art reproduced. I’ve solved it on my wandering, snowy walk today. I caught two deer making little deer. I anticipate seeing these little deer at a shopping event as soon as they’re old enough to be apart from their parents. The place is also offering waffles. I DO love waffles. 100 toppings? I’m in. I’ll have them all! I have to confess though, the stomping through the snow was really just an excuse to go running around in my pink snow boots, and my hilariously cute tights from Pixicat. I’m trying to decide how you’d wash these? I’m thinking dry clean only. Gidge is Wearing:

Bundled Up

I decided to go out exploring the winter fun to be had in SL today, so I had to take a bit to get properly geared up. Cute but warm is the goal – it’s hard to be cute sometimes, especially in RL, when you’re layered upon layers upon layers. I decided to have some fun with my ability to layer on my SLINK PHYSIQUE starting with a sweater from Stellar on the body, then adding mesh over it for a cute RL layered look. I think it works nicely.  Somehow I hadn’t noticed this adorable mugs from Schadenfreude at COLLABOR88 this month. I couldn’t believe it, because I love cute mugs. They have options in them for what kind of drink you have, I’m having hot chocolate because I’m spoiling myself today. I’m worth it right? Right. I’m wearing PXL Creations newest makeup for Mia at the UBER event, but I’ve dressed it up with a gorgeous new eye shadow from The Wicked Peach. Fancy Purple is Fancy. Now I’m going to head out and have some proper adventures in the snow today!… Read the rest

Do A Hunt They Said – It’ll Be Fun They Said

I admit I was seduced by the participants and the lovely quality of things being offered up. I’m easy like that. I thought that a hot air balloon would be the PERFECT place to spy bunnehs and locate the loot around the sim. It seemed like a fool proof plan. Well, depends on the fool I suppose. Hint – there’s a bunneh in the hot air balloon. I’m about half done and will try to finish up tonight! What a lovely event. Thanks everyone who put it on. And thanks for the hot chocolate. Hot beverages are always welcome. Gidge is Wearing:

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway

Glam Affair has a new release at COLLABOR88 in one of my favorite skin tones – SUPER PALE GIRL. Called POLAR it’s perfect for us girls who burst into flame in the sun.  She’s gorgeous and ivory toned for winter months.  Sometimes layering mesh just doesn’t work, and you have to decide, do the bunny mittens outweigh the fact that they intersect with the sweater sleeves? I say yes, they do. The bunnies are that cute. And truthfully, I’d wear them around like that, so why not. They’re all adorable. The sweater is available at Collabor88 and the scarf and mittens you can pick up at THE ARCADE if the gods of the odds are on your side. However – even if you don’t get the bunnies, they’re all cute.

LET ME OUT – OOOPS I found This In Drafts ! OOOPS !

Rumpelstiltskin terrified me as a child. The fate of a girl sealed by her absurd braggart father, and a selfish, mean spirited elf/sprite/demon creature. Helpless against fate, that seemed like such a cruel fate to me. I never liked the story. At the ENCHANTMENT Stamp Card event this round you can live the romance and pretties of the story without actually fearing for your life. As with each round, once you purchase an item from one of the participating merchants at their mainstore, you get a stamp card that you can take around and while wearing it – you touch the ENCHANTMENT vendor at each participating vendor. Once you get to the end of them, you can go to the prize room to unlock a special prize from one of the creators. If you buy more than one item, you get more than one stamp card and that equals more than one prize ! It’s such a cool event, and even if you get locked in a tower and forced to spin straw into gold, chances are good you’ll sort a way out of it and end up with the prince.… Read the rest

Francois Sais Pas Flashe No Deux

Ok I’m feeling groovy this morning and it was a toss up between Blondie and Dee-Lite for the title I admit.  Mavi Beck released new poses called SO SHE and this one just FITS the flair on my skirt from Pixicats dress so perfectly.  I’ve been in a rut lately, thinking maybe I’ll quit making poses since Qavimator won’t work with this version of Windows. But I saw so much of the fun of movement, and all the things I love about making them in this set from MaVie that I realized I’m going to have to dig in and learn DAZ after all. I’ve tried it three times to no avail, nothing works the way any tutorial I find says it does so maybe it’s a Windows issue too or maybe PIBKAC. I kind of vote for the latter. I am having too much fun so early on a freezing cold Tuesday. Probably why I dressed Pixel Gidge in such tiny clothes. I’m living vicariously through her. I’m also wearing shoes with a pumpkin on them. Why not ! It’s fun and seriously I would probably wear them through Thanksgiving in real life just because CUTE PUMPKIN !… Read the rest

Pixel Gidge Had a Busy Day

Pixel Gidge started her day with lots to do. FLF is today, and in addition to that I realized I had to get decorating for Thanksgiving. The temperatures had dropped here on Juicy so I had to snuggle up into some cozy cold weather clothes from FISSION. It’s a perfect turtleneck sweater for chilly days. I headed out and learned lots of cool things, including that Pure Poison has special gacha freebies for their VIP group members. Did you know that?! I stopped by and got some goodies while I was out doing the BIG shopping. After my long day of gathering goodies, and paying my rent, and other sundry things I decided to find something to eat. I found a cute little restaurant and didn’t even need a reservation ! I filled up on pasta and after a couple more stops, made it home before nightfall. You wouldn’t think shopping and reading blogs for cute new things to buy would be work but pfew it is ! As the sun gets ready to set, I’ve built a fire and have my book REDSHIRTS (really good, I recommend it) and am in for the night.… Read the rest

Feminist

Misogynist bullshit from TIME magazine’s annual ban-a-word poll. I was feeling fiercely angry after learning that TIME included feminist on a list of words to be banned from common usage. I will not provide the link because they did it for traffic and they should not be rewarded for their indecency. And it is indecent. For clicks, shits and giggles, a human gerbil desperately spinning for male approval and working far above her competency suggested that feminist is overused and included it in a list of words that should be banned. Responding to richly deserved backlash, she demanded we consider the context; she is critiquing media trends, not feminism. This is doubly shameless when she blithely ignores the context in which the “I am a Feminist” campaign came to be. I am sure she is proud of herself, though, because she is the kind of feckless  crystallization of vapidity that always will be very, very,very proud of itself.… Read the rest141114_003

It’s getting pretty cold here, luckily my pixel self won’t have to worry about her legs getting cold.  Flat from Ingenue are a perfect subtle touch for this fall suit. I love the look.  I need this in my RL. I’m weeping bcse I can’t have this suit in RL. It’s quite sad, Darlings. Don’t you know?

Give a Man a Fish

There is a popular quote that says, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Perhaps there should be an addendum. Give a man at fishing net and he can feed his family. Heifer International is all about not only teaching people to provide for themselves, but also giving them the means to get started. Depending on where they live, people in poverty are given anything from honeybees to water buffalo and launched into the business of not just feeding themselves, but making a living. In addition, they pledge to pass it on to another family, raising the standard of living for the entire community in time. Every December, Maht Wuyts does his annual Mahrathon to raise money for Heifer. He DJs for 26.2 hours from The Velvet in Second Life and from a coffee shop in Chicago – a RL/SL event that raised $2500 last year. Because it is happening in two worlds simultaneously, it is helpful to have a few hosts to help greet people and encourage contributions, so if anyone would like to volunteer to cover an hour or two as a host – encouraging friends to come join in the fun and greet people, please IM me in world.… Read the restMahrathon-2014-Sq_SL

And THIS Is Why 6 AM Shopping Is A Bad Idea

So this happened. I went to the CHAPTER FOUR because I saw a pic of a cute sweatshirt that FISHY STRAWBERRY had out, and I HAD TO HAVE IT. I’m all SL broke right now bcse QAVIMATOR went to hell but that’s a different story. So ANYWAY – had to have it, I had a cup of coffee barely touched, TP’d right in and went right to the shirts I wanted. YAY I saw the one I wanted, made my purchase and TP’d home, full of joy with my whimsical purchase. Except I got dressed and it didn’t say what I wanted. I wanted the one that said MORE ISSUES THAN VOGUE. MINE DIDN’T SAY THAT !! I tried both colors. I gave up and shot them as is. And I sent FAE a note, saying OMG MY SHIRT IS WRONG /weeps. Then I went to plurk and lamented my fate. Because obviously this is a tragedy. Me: OH NO I GOT THE WRONG SHIRT AT THE CHAPTER FOUR ! It doesn’t say what I WANTED WAAAAAH. (It was like that.)
Dani: OH NO I BOUGHT THAT TOO I BETTER CHECK MINE !

CAI as in Cairo, Zha as in Asia

There is no greater thrill for a fashionista than to have some design named after them. If you have a name many folks don’t know how to pronounce, it’s even more thrilling because it doesn’t happen very often. So, yes! I was thrilled when Thalia Heckroth named her newest gown in my honor. I was even more thrilled though, seeing it’s modern lines and minimalist style. I wore Fission’s black plaid pumps with criss-cross straps. I like the subtle pattern and it made an interesting contrast to the solid black of the dress. My hair is from D!va for October’s Collabor88 which is still open. The skin is from PXL Creations for Uber and the earrings were at Vintage Is Cool and are from EarthStones. You can see the subtle details of the draping on the dress’s bodice in this photo. Store info at Blogging Second Life

The Colors of Fall

Autumn has been painting its palette all across Second Life for the past month. I stopped by Izzie’s because it is always one of the most beautiful seasonal sims and sure enough, Izzie’s portrait of autumn is beautiful. In fact, it’s so lovely, I decided to use a paint filter on one of my snaps to turn it into a painting. If you stop by Izzie’s, don’t touch the kitty, she is shy.
I wore this lovely plaid halter dress from Goth1c0 – a find at Vintage Is Cool. I love the rich colors in the bodice and the flowing bias cut skirt. You can also see the gorgeous pumps from Fission that were released for My Slink Obsession. Shy kitty pays no attention to me as I pose about the apple tree. Here you get a full picture of the dress with its flowing skirt and the inset waist with button embellishments. That gorgeous undo is from Truth, from his newest release. The skin is from PXL Creations and can be found at Uber. The jewelry is from EArthStones, an old favorite from my closet.… Read the rest141025_006b
