How About Some Meat Cooked Over Fire ?

Living in the south in RL I appreciate the value of cooking out, we’re all about it down here.  Now BBQ in the south isn’t the same as grilling, which is what I’m doing above. But when I lived up north it was the same. Regardless of what you call it, meat cooked over fire is delicious. I’m showing off some more Arcade goodies, these from Sari Sari and from Pixel Mode from PREVIOUS round that compliment one another nicely. It’s hectic putting together a meal for so many people, but it’s also a lot of fun to have people over. So it’s worth it even if it does make me batty. Why do I have a cat on my head? WHY DON’T YOU HAVE A CAT ON YOUR HEAD? That’s really the question you should be asking yourself. 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:

You are my sun, my moon

A week without internet is a long time is 2015. You realize the little things you take for granted, you don’t have immediate access to the world. You don’t have total unfettered communication with your friends. Things start to slip. You realize sometimes you didn’t really have a grip on somethings anyway, they were already gone. Some things you decide to let go and some battles you don’t feel like fighting anymore. There is a lot of time to think, in the silence left behind when there is no net. My perfect bed for reflection is from Cheeky Pea for UBER which has a Celestial theme I’m told. I just got back in world about oh, 15 minutes ago, so I’m going to trust the NC on that one. I know that now that I’m back I’ll be doing this and that and putting my life back in order. It’s about time. The best peace is sometimes realizing what doesn’t matter any more, and what does.

And Now It’s Been A Year

I don’t have any plans in SL this NYE. I have a new roombah with a cat/dragon on it vacuuming (thank you SO MUCH) around my house and New Year’s Rockin Eve on the TV and that’s going to have to be good enough for me to close the year. When I wake up tomorrow it’s a new year. That’s always such an odd feeling, a year has passed. How did that happen? I have to make some adjustments to my SL for 2015 and to my RL but they aren’t RESOLUTIONS. Resolutions always feel false to me. These are more, life changes that I’ve just been putting off because I’m lazy. Not the same at all. I may continue to put them off for a while. We’ll see.   It’s time to stop having patience with some things, and time to stop letting things slide. But I’ll worry about that tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day. I’m wearing the new version of PXL Creations MIA which was released at UBER. The gorgeous furniture from Cheeky Pea can also be found there.… Read the rest

Freak Shows of Emotion

I am, in general, an overly emotional person. I can assign meaning to things that have none to the one rendering the action. Hurts hit me and don’t fade with time. I hold grudges. Except that over the past few months I’ve had a realization, I stopped caring about them. I realized it when I was talking to blogger Sam Laszlo on plurk, and I said something like, “I think you don’t like me, or I don’t like you – I can’t remember which.”  We ran into each other at the blogger preview for Arcade and he asked me if we were still at war, at which point we added each other to our friends list and laughed. I came to SL for a place to relax and get away from the hectic RL and somehow it took on a life of it’s own and has had so much drama it should be a show.  I somehow ended up with actual enemies, something I can’t fathom having in real life. Who the hell has enemies? Is this Sherwood Forest? Should I be afraid of the Sheriff too? … Read the rest


Alright seriously, I’m in the shower. You’re following me into the shower? Ok fine well enjoy the view, I’m strategically placing some bubbles so no views of my goodies for you. Showering is one of the most peaceful moments in my life. I lived for my awesome shower in the master bath of my home, so peaceful, it’s own box of hot water and steamy good soapy smells. No kids bothering me, just the sound of the rushing water and the endless floating bubbles of scent. Then the fucking thing broke. Broke as in needs replaced. So now I have to shower in the husband’s shower which is serviceable, but not MY shower. It does the job, but it’s simply not the same. In SL I’ve got this shower from Cheeky Pea that’s pretty awesome, I just unpacked it and realized it’s the SL shower of my dreams, glass doors, steamy good water, vichy shower head and bubbles for modesty in case you lot pop in to bother me while I’m bathing.… 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

Twilight Cultist Purple

I am petty. Any NPC that gave me trouble as I leveled up through WoW, the ones that killed me again and again, I have to go back and kick their asses now whenever I see them. Whether it be the cutpurses of Elwynn forest, or the various murlocks that sent me to the graveyard again and again, if I pass by them, BAM I kill them. Most of the time I don’t even loot them. I was reminded of the annoying twits of the various Twilight Cultists, and my love of killing them for no reason at all, as I tinted these lashes. Both Whimsy and Cajsa have now given them to me, I suppose I should wear them sometimes. So, I am. They don’t quite fit my eyes. Fitting is NOT my forte. Happy Sunday everyone.

Weekends Are For Sleeping In

Avatars need to sleep in too. It’s busy work shopping and getting dressed, and going shopping again. Taking pictures too, and blogging, these things all make a weekend a well deserved break for a pixel girl. I changed the texture on my bed from Ispachi. I love this bed. I feel asleep last night in this new tank and shorts set from FLAIR which is half off at My Slink Obsession. I’m also still wearing CHARLI  from Adam N Eve which is for Physique AND Visage by SLINK, you can pick it up at the event too. I have to quit going to bed with my makeup on. I need a facemask now, boo for clogged pores. For right now though, I’m going to lay around and listen to the ocean outside, and realize that even though I never changed my parcel music from Christmas, I’ve nearly left it there long enough that it’s timely again. YAY FOR INSANELY LAZY ! Today I encourage sloth. Won’t you join me? itsonlyfashionblog.com

And Now The Rest Of The Story

Beginning and ending my day in lingerie is a recipe for a perfect day. This new slip dress from ISON for COLLABOR88 fit the bill for my end of day stretch and relax time.  I had such a good, if not tiring, birthday. It’s amazing sometimes when you look around and realize how wonderful it is to be here, and all of the things you can do in this world, isn’t it? I have a new book. It’s about a guy who collects the souls of the Evil Doers but then he goes to collect the soul of this girl who murdered her parents and she isn’t an evil doer. NOW we have a problem. That’s where I am. It’s kind of engaging, I have to admit Spending my evening engrossed in ME has made me wonder should I have more parties like I used to? Should I spend time in world visiting? Should I learn to knit? YES! I should do all of these things. I need more hours in the day. I want to go another 46 years and I have a lot to do. “Today You Are You – That is TRUER THAN TRUE !There is no one alive who is you-er than YOU !” Dr.… Read the rest

Open House is a unique new collaborative effort by a few of the Shangri La “sisters”.  We wanted to think of a unique way to present the products we make as a collab effort and so we came up with the concept of Open House.  Each month there will be a house built by Mariah and select rooms specially designed for the home by Brie Pinazzo and me (Vernice Burks/Kylei Benoir).

Comfort 6/10/2011

Typically we post clothing and skins here but today I’m going to break the unwritten rules.  I bought this pose from Glitterati some time ago but hadn’t gotten to use it until last night.  This is probably my favorite pose that I have in my inventory.  It is comfortable and looks so natural. I mostly wanted to post this photo to share the pose but also the image.  When I started blogging it was because I take tons of photos and I never do anything with them more than upload them to Flickr.  Blogging was a way to “show off” some of what I do from shopping for clothing and hair to poses and the obvious, taking photos.

May Day

I change skins constantly, but sometimes a skin grabs me so hard that I cannot let it go. Currently, that skin is Curio’s May. You cannot go wrong with any of the gorgeous faces at Curio, but I just could not resist the youthful and spring like face.
May comes in six springy makeups, with two versions of each makeup. Add to the fact that you also get Dark and Light versions of each makeup and freckled version, it’s a skin that you will not be disappointed with. Make sure you demo it soon! Get This Look:

Hair & Lashes Oh My 4/23/2011

I meant to ramble on about these gorgeous eyelashes in my last post, but I thought I would save it for another post.  I really wanted to feature the skin in that post.  Now ere we are in the next post so let me just tell you these lashes are really great!  They look amazing on and are incredible to fit.  The creator really has gone the extra step to make these the absolute best lashes that I own.  They are gorgeous and the scripting allows you to obtain a perfectly flawless fit (unlike what is shown in the photos).  I’m still working on getting the perfect fit for me but I wanted to share them with you now because I just couldn’t hold back anymore.  I found these lashes on the style card of the shape I purchased from Juicy.  They are made by Framboise Werribee and are a staple to my avatar now. Today’s Truth hair release was ever so convenient since taking the eyelash photos would require a closeup shot.  I grabbed this hair called Hazel from the new release and I’m really glad that I did. … Read the restShangri La Style 4-23-2011 Hair

LAQ Linnea – Skin Review

Hello everyone! I have never done this before so please be nice to me… this is my first skin review and I have a lot of good to say about this one.  I’ve always been a fan of LAQ skins but I have not been wearing them for quite some time because I did not like how the lips looked so glossy and huge on me.  I recently got bored of my avatar so I went for a total overhaul and bought a new skin, new eyes and some new hairs and I’m even thinking about changing the color of my hair but for now it’s still brown. I really think this skin is gorgeous.  It’s not too glossy as some skins from the same brand have seemed to me and the face is very soft and delicate which is just what I like.  There are several makeup options and with the thousands of makeup tattoo layers available around the grid and on marketplace you can really get your skin looking how you want it regardless of what the creator has included in their packs. The pack of skins was just under 2,000L and includes 10 makeups. … Read the restLAQ Linnea ALL
