Les Liasons Dangereuses

One of my favorite lines from any book is by Margaret Atwood. “I want all my hurts to be intentional.” It’s a personal mantra. It’s two sided to me. It means I don’t want to unintentionally cause harm or sadness. Being a human person means you do in fact do that sometimes. Through your actions or decisions you might hurt another person, even someone you care about. The best you can do in that situation is apologize. You can’t always fix it, some times you can’t go back – or going back isn’t where fate is taking you. But you can be honest, and try to move forward with good intentions even if you can’t remove that thing that hurts. Intentional hurts though are something reserved for people I am truly at odds with. It’s hard to sit here and think of an actual instance, but I’d venture that when under attack I’m not against returning fire – and returning fire in a harsh fashion. I think that’s fair too.… Read the rest

Love In Mysterious Ways

Sometimes I feel more in love than others. I am invested so deeply that sometimes I forget the love and passion that drives the machine of a love affair – even when it’s a long term one. It’s hard sometimes to know why you love someone or how it turned into love, but I know I never forget that moment when the words became real. Saying them is like a magical spell, it can bring amazing things into our life or it can kill your dreams. I’m lucky that it turned out well. I’m content, though. No love is perfect, and finding your soulmate is never a guarantee of a perfect relationship. I’ve decided after all these years that there isn’t one of those at all ANYWHERE. So when you find real love, you have to hold onto it and sort out how to keep it. There is no such thing as too much love. Gidge is Wearing:

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:

And I Need To Get Home

Home is that place where you walk in and you’re at ease, it’s your space. You’re not only welcome there you feel a strong sense of it being the right place. Sometimes it’s just your space, sometimes it’s a space you share. You can feel HOME at a place that isn’t your dwelling, and that’s the best feeling of all, because that’s the most welcoming and happy feeling of all. You know it’s a good place, if you feel like it’s home when you step inside. Inside you usually find your people, even when you’re not connected by DNA.  I’m sharing a new to me skinner LOUX today and the lovely offering from SKIN fair as well as the FESTIVE nails from Nylon Outfitters from COLLABOR88 this month. YAY for damn fine coffee. In fact, I think I need a cup. Happy Thursday. Gidge is Wearing:

The wintry weather is probably kicking me pretty hard by now, in my southern style coat. Luckily in SL I was able to keep warm thanks to Amitomo’s release for THE ARCADE.

Time To Travel

It should come as no surprise that I ALWAYS overpack when I travel. This time I’m heading north north north from my warm southern home. It’s still terrible winter there, and I’m ill prepared for what that’s going to mean. But I’m going to pack pack pack and hope for the best. I know two pair of pajama pants might seem excessive but one is warm and one is cooler. And I need both casual clothes and work clothes. Oh my this is going to be a lot of bags, isn’t it? Well it doesn’t matter, the adventure alone will make lugging all these things along well worth it! Gidge Is Wearing:

Twin Peaks and Porn

The current round of COLLABOR88 has kicked off with an homage to one of my favorite stories – TWIN PEAKS. The actual name of the theme is MOONLESS NIGHT, and mood board hearkens to damn fine coffee and Laura Palmer’s compatriots.  New awesome things are to be found and I was excited to see so much great realization of this theme. An aside from Collabor88 this month is a nod to 21Shoe which is coming up.  There is something new, in that the 21Shoe group will now have a 150L to join, but now EACH MONTH you’ll get a little giftee from one of the creators! For March it’s an ankle bracelet from Sax Shepherd Designs which I’m wearing today! There is one for left or right ankle, and Sax included a HUD for you to tweak the look! Sweet idea! Speaking of PORN, we used to watch Porn on Thursday nights in college. We called it Culture Night and we’d turn the sound down, and everyone was assigned a character to “voice”. It was pretty funny.… Read the rest

Twinkling

It’s cold and rainy with possible ice incoming in RL so the only recipe to solve that sort of crisis is obviously to dress up in SL. I’m wearing a new release from Sacha’s designs that is so twinkly and glittery my video card can’t show it to you.  It reminds me of what it would look like if taffeta and sequins had a baby. I know that’s crazy, they aren’t even both fabrics! What do they have in common?  Have you played with the new SLINK HANDS nails options yet? Ok seriously – VERY addicting. That’s all for me today.

Three Eyed Cat Soup

The original title of this post was “If you go out in the woods today…” because it was going through my head while I was getting dressed. Then I went looking around on Honour McMillan’s blog for a good place to shoot and EXACTLY the place I wanted was found in a blog post by the same name. KISMET! But I figured, she just used that title, I know we’ve used it, I’ve got to come up with something new. I realized I’m clearly headed to Grandmother’s in this outfit. Traditionally I’m taking her a basket of food as she’s sick. So obviously, in this version of the tale, Grandmother is going to be having three eyed cat soup. Right? Yum yum. I prefer mine with a BIT of cayenne pepper. Gidge is Wearing:

Hi I’m Here To Do Your Hair

Remarkable Oblivion has released some gear that’s perfect for those of you still seeking to traverse the grid in a more dystopian setting.

High Plains Fairy Drifter

I’ve been playing in ARCADE items today and the VCO Fairy Mesh Heads have caught my fancy. I don’t wear mesh heads regularly but this is pretty cute, and there is a nice selection of them if something you enjoy. I really love that you can choose your eyes, and hairbase via hud, makes it nice to switch up your look or keep it close to your avatar’s look for hair matching etc.  They’re really cute. Such Sweet little faces! I’m also wearing an adorable release from Katat0nik for ARCADE, it’s a cute little spring faux cowgirl look. The details on the hat are adorable. The skirt has a magical property that allows your hand to pass right through it. MAGIC! You can get everything you see at THE ARCADE which is opening in less than 24 hours.

How Do You Arcade ?

Like Athena bursting from Zeus’ head, I leaped awake today realizing that THE ARCADE is almost here! Do you have a system? Do you make plans? How do you ARCADE? I always start with the Shopping Guide, it really shows me who my must haves are each round and gives me ideas for little gift giving things too, like the post apocalyptic stuff for Codie. And maybe something for some of you – who knows? I admit I spend quite a while narrowing it all down. Some collections I WANT IT ALL. Some, I’m like this “Hey, whatever I get will be AWESOME!” If you haven’t perused the ARCADE SHOPPING GUIDE, well here is the latest edition. What’s your MUST have this round? I love the claw machine. I WON A CHICKFISH! Now, I’m excited. Sometimes I just need a push to remind me what I love about the pixel world. Arcade was that push this time. Thank You CHICKFISH!

Important Information About Breakfast

“I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how serious you approach your whole life.”
~ Martha Stewart
Cookies are a valid breakfast. I decided this morning that only cookies would do, and at the same time I realized there are “breakfast cookies” and “diet cookies” and this really means that cookies are now officially a good for you food, right? I mean, these people who market these products wouldn’t lie to us, correct? For that reason I’m pursuing a cookie filled breakfast. If loving cookies is wrong, I don’t want to be right. However many minutes of aerobics are required to work off this entire tray of cookies, they are worth every minute of it. In fashiony news today, Lelutka has released two new beautiful hair do’s and I’m sporting one of them.  This is a great casual do for cookie filled days.… Read the rest

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.

‘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:

Pigalle from Baiastice

“It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.” ~ George Washington
I had to look up the word Pigalle as I couldn’t place it. According to wikipedia it’s a place in Paris. It’s also a surname. There was a chanteuse named Anne Pigalle. There have been various things like theaters and bands with this name. None of these were what I was thinking of. It’s possible I don’t know this word after all. But, now I do. Gidge is Wearing:
