When Someone Shows You How They Feel

I like the old adage “When someone shows you how they feel, believe them.” I have probably spent far too many hours believing the words that didn’t match the actions in this life, and finally at my ripe old avatar age I’ve found a way to realize that this adage is more true than I ever imagined. I’m surrounded by people who show me and that’s the best feeling ever. I don’t have to wonder, or second guess, or ever try sort out why the actions and words don’t match. It’s calming, to be around so much sanity and to be with people who make me feel confident and stronger  Sometimes a small cull, closing a door here or there, can turn the wheel so hard that your life turns upside down. You can see what was stuck under your sofa more easily that way. There is nothing better than being this girl right now. Happy Sunday girls. Go SHOPPING! Shopping is second to being me. Totally fun though. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

So Girly It Hurts

I can’t help it. I’m a girly girl. But even my girly self couldn’t resist this hot release at Collabor88 from Fawny. I’m feeling kind of girl and TOUGH now that I take a good look.  Those hanging beads, the likes of which Greg Brady would covet, are available from COLLABOR88 this month from Maxi Gossamer. What a fun release! Now, I’m trying to decide what to do now that I’m all suited up. Ideas? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Collabor88 Is Setting Up…Are You Ready?

I’m wandering the streets of this little coastal town,exploring in some casual comfort from Collabor88’s AUGUST edition. It’s a beautiful round so far, I think you’re going to enjoy it a lot.  The masquerade style sunglasses from Commoner tickled my fancy this morning so I brought them along, even thought it’s a cloudy day around here. My dress today is from  Mutresse who is releasing it with a HUD with a bajillion little options to tweak and make it your own. My hair and jewelry are ALSO from Collabor88  I’m feeling kind of peachy and persimmony on this Sunday morning,as you can see. Collabor88 will open up tomorrow on the 8th as usual and it’s going to be a great big one. 120 vendors will be there to kick off this birthday edition of Collabor88 so you know it’s NOT to be missed. Now, I’ve got to do something exploring and dust off the cobwebs of my brain. I’ve been homebound too many days.… Read the rest

I’m Walkin’….Except I’m Not

There are some bloggers who do an amazing job of reflecting a variety of skin tones when sharing new releases from creators. I’m not one of them. I think my instinctual nod would go to Sydd Sinister. There are probably others. I’m always impressed with the amount of effort it takes to make a gorgeous contact sheet style post showing all the options with a skin or hair release. I decided to shake myself up and choose a totally different skin tone for myself, simply because in Second Life we can be whomever we want. I’m wearing a tone called Cocoa from Alaska Metro that you can pick up at Mesh Body Addicts event. Belleza recently updated their bods, so be sure to check those out if you haven’t already. As for me, well I haven’t been able to get Gidge to be able to WALK for the past two days so I’m pretty sure she’s just going to have to ride around on this Flamingo forever. Don’t mind me. I’ll be dragging this through events.… Read the rest

The Love We Think We Deserve

Moments happen unexpectedly. Sometimes you can be just talking and you realize connections are forming, bonds are tightening and you didn’t see them coming at all. It’s those moments that can be bliss, joy, and all the other breathless good things that come from unexpected happiness. I don’t mind getting up early to log some studio time when I wake up knowing it’s another day of adventure and good things. Today is just another step on an unexpected road. I had thought I had missed the rest of this month’s Collabor88 and was a little down about it, I’m excited to realize it’s only the 2nd. These beautiful memory jars are available still at Collabor88 from Schadenfreude. There are several styles, and they’re perfect for sharing and storing some of your favorite SL memories. Now, let’s make this a great day girls. Gidge is Wearing:

What? Behind The Rabbit?

I heard there was danger here but all I’ve found are these bunnies. they’re adorable, scampering about. They’re perfect for prepping for some Easter pictures in my opinion. SWEET little bunnies. You might be tempted to think these are just run of the mill ordinary bunnies. Well no, they’re no ordinary rabbits. In fact, they’re the most foul, cruel, bad tempered rodent you ever set your eyes on. Look that rabbit’s got a vicious streak a mile wide! He’ll do you up a treat, mate. Killer bunnies.

Smooching Tuli Right In The Face

Tuli is back for Skin Fair and bringing us new pretty faces. She’s got appliers for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza bodies I was delighted to see. I was a little sad face to not have this pretty skin for my Lelutka head but if taking off my head is the sacrifice I have to make I will survive I suppose.  Only FOR YOU AND FOR HART, TULI! Only for you! And I love you guys, make Lelutka appliers so I can love you every day! I’m never happy at skin fair time unless I splice up a couple of different makeups on my face.  So there you go. Tuli makes the prettiest lips, I do love them. Almost makes me love the default head. ALMOST SO CLOSE. But you girls who love your default head, Tuli has a lovely release for you at Skin fair, go check out IRIS ! Lashes: Amacci – Eyelash Tattoo 4

Have Truck Will Travel

The Stepside truck at the Arcade this round is big enough to hold all of my luggage which is perfect. I can head out in complete comfort, plus it’s rugged enough for the wild terrain of even say, mainland! I am going to bring along my new little bulldog. Isn’t she adorable? She’s also from THE ARCADE this round from Birdie. She’s got an option for roses or no – but honestly I can’t imagine her without the roses! What madness!! It’s a weekend adventure that awaits! gidge is wearing:

Hunt and Peck

I have to confess that this harpsichord was at the top of my MUST HAVE items from The Arcade. I immediately knew I had no room for it and thus would MOVE to make it so, or would simply discard other loved items. I decided on the latter. Because – HARPSICHORD. The hud comes with three color options, and the choice of a painted inner lid or not.  It’s so classically lovely I couldn’t resist. My birdies are from…BIRDIE also from the Arcade this month. My understanding is that you Potter fans will like them the most – I never saw any of that, so for me they’re just pretty and that’s good enough! My hair is another win from new to me [INK] – I just love their contributions this round to the event. Now, I’m going to relax and enjoy my fancy new decor, from Fancy Decor. Gidge Is Wearing:

I Have Never Been More Free

Balancing your life can be a tremendous strain. So much to do, so little time. So much to want, so hard to get it all done or acquired. Me time, you time, our time, is there even a me and you? What is it that’s real? Where does my energy go? Once you figure that out, the rest is easy. I can balance anything when I’m true to me. Don’t wait, don’t hold back. Just be in the moment and be real and true. Nothing feels better than not being tied to things that aren’t important and in retrospect, weren’t good at all. There isn’t anything as good as this feeling. If you’re coming with me, you’ll have to keep up. I’m not stoppable any more. And I’m not waiting for anything. I’m sporting new duds from The Arcade from B.C.C – a really cute school girl uniform. I’m still wearing the pretty new skin from The Skinnery at the Arcade and I’m trying out the really lovely hair from [INK] – I love this!… Read the rest

HERE WE GOOOOO….

Sing that title like Jane’s Addiction and then you’ll know how excited I am for this round of The Arcade which opens up on the first. I’m READY. I’m so excited because once again some of my favorite creators have created the lovely little details that make me SL complete and help me tell the story of pixel Gidge. For instance today she’s a disobedient school girl with her smokes ready to go. She also has a cat on her head – that’s from O.M.E.N. at the Arcade and it’s free ! So cute. The Sugar Garden has the perfect accessories for knocking other shoppers out of the way, and hey bring along some booze to make your time more chill while shopping.  My hair is from Tableau Vivant for The Arcade and my skin is a new pick up for Lelutka heads, also at The Arcade. Arcade, you will be mine. You will ALL be mine. I really like this hombre ….I might need to pick this one up more often. Gidge is Wearing:

Tunes On Friday

I was going to get some work done this morning but I got new headphones fit for a princess and I couldn’t be bothered once I got to the studio. It’s a crown – it’s headphones – it’s EVERYTHING. I’m going to spend some time relaxing, despite this onslaught of spytatoes entering my dwelling. I hope they come in peace. In other news, Helena Stringer made new eyes from GENRE so look for the STRINGER MAUSOLEUM if you’re looking to freshen up your look for spring!

Ever Feel Like You’re Being Watched ?

I was getting ready to possibly go out last night, and I kept having this weird feeling that someone else was in the treehouse with me. I can’t put my finger on why, I just kept having this SENSE that I wasn’t alone. I never really shook it all night. I ended up staying in because I didn’t even feel like it would be safe to go outside, so Iocked my doors and stayed in the main tree for the night. It ended up being just as well. I couldn’t figure out this kimono anyway. gidge is wearing:

Crushed

The Annex has released a new gown which is still seasonally perfect. A deep, plunging neckline swaddles you in a luxurious crushed velvet look. I can just imagine how heavy this gown would be.

What A Load of Crap

I spent a little time on the grid having Valentine’s and decided to go over for the 100 Word Stories read by Crap Mariner at Amatorum. He entertained us with lively tails that involved cigarette burns and corpses. It was a fitting kick off to the AntiValentines event that evening, but I’m a Valentine loving girl so I can’t do AntiValentines. I love this day so much. But still I couldn’t resist a little time listening to well told stories. I wore red to secretly celebrate. My shoes are from BAIASTICE at Collabor88 this month – they’re just flawless. This gorgeous suit from ISON is perfect for a girl spy OR a girl attending a reading of prose. It goes EVERYWHERE. Ison always makes such lovely pieces. I’m still wearing the amazing skin from PINK FUEL for Lelutka. I’m super happy it exists. Gidge is Wearing:

No YOU Need More PS…Just Sayin’

A lovely friend of mine, and fellow blogger got some weird critique. Well, weird to me. She was told “You need better PS skills.” This was in response to her applying to blog for someone. Hmmmmm. My advice in response was basically this. If their products are so bad that they require you to photoshop them, no one should be wearing them anyway. I can certainly see the value of photoshop in magazines, as a high level of editorial presentation is expected. However, we’re bloggers. If you’ve got photoshop and do a tweak here or there then that’s lovely but really to me, it’s just never been a deal breaker. In fact, I’ve never used it. I have had some failed forays into gimp and I’ve given it up. I’ve decided that other than the odd filter provided by an online editor like picmonkey or something, if I can’t make it happen using styling, high rez photo and windlight…well, it just doesn’t need to happen.… Read the rest
