Cajsa’s impeccable taste and Second Life’s lack of effective inventory searching lead to me getting this dress. There is nothing about that which I find to be a problem. In fact, I feel like I’ve totally scored. She’s been taunting me with my birthday gift, I have to admit I thought this was it, it’s THIS gorgeous it’s worthy of being a gift on it’s own. She picked it up from KELINI at Penumbra Fashion Week (I think) and it’s so slinky and gorgeous I have to admit feeling very 20s Hollywood glam right now. Truth’s throwback style TULIP was a perfect pairing. I’m also excited because LEAGUE released their SLINK PHYSIQUE appliers and so today I’m wearing beautiful LEAGUE Erin.

It’s That Kind Of Day

Have you ever just had one of those days? I mean, here I was, going for a nice little boatride, when suddenly my boat started filling with water and my oars floated away! *sighs* At least I look adorable, thanks to the upcoming round of Fit For A Princess!

How cute is this Modern Princess Sundress from Nomi? I just want to run around in it singing about wanting adventure in the great wide somewhere. The skirt has 4 different colors, and the top has 2 colors, and they can be changed with a HUD. The dress goes great with the Brocade Slippers from Lassitude & Ennui that will be out at the event, too! The slippers have pretty little pearls on the tops and these are for the Slink natural bare feet.

I first became aware of Tiny Trinkets because my daughter had a bracelet made for me around Christmas time, so I was excited to see that they'd be out at Fit For A Princess! I love the Medieval Beauty necklaces! They come in different colors, and are very easily resized to fit everyone from Toddleedoos to adults.… Read the restStyle - It's That Kind Of Day-1

And Then I Fell Into an Eaters Coma

I don’t think I’ve actually ever personally experienced the FOOD COMA (or EATERS COMA) that some people get, especially on holidays like Thanksgiving. Eating that much simply makes me nauseous. Luckily, in SL I was able to experience Eaters Coma for the first time with no ill effects, as it’s a quirky named hair store I’m trying out for the first time. I’ve been aware of them for some time, but maybe just my fear of the RL food coma kept me away. /slaps head. OH WHAT A FOOL I HAVE BEEN! HAIR FAIR 2014 is such a great place to try out new to you creators, every year I fall in love with someone new. The Plastik has recently released a set of beautiful dresses, Ysandre and I felt like Monday needed dressing up a bit.  There is a wide range of gorgeous colors in celestial inspired hues and patterns.  I love that it looks a bit like liquid. This is my “I’m ready for Monday” face. I think I nailed it. Be sure to stop by Eaters Coma at Hair Fair.… Read the rest

So I Have This Crown

In fact it came with the hair, from PLOOM for The Fantasy Collective.  I thought it was a perfect opportunity to take one of Sacha’s Designs ballgowns for a stroll, shopping in a crown and ballgown, I believe it’s what our Linden Overlords intended when they made our world. I usually slap on one of the huds to dye my hair this or that, I love Ploom’s colors, however this one was so cute out of the box I had to leave it.  It was also an excuse to break out jewelry from DONNA FLORA which is always my favorite. I’m wearing the SLINK VISAGE head Becky with Izzie’s Maci skin, I love her lipstick options. Now, where did this week go? Dress: Sascha’s Designs – LilSarah Black

Ladder of Time

This is quite a small post for me, but I am really busy sorting out posts for Fashion for Life, as I am on their official blogging team.  My nail polish in this post is by Zoz and will be available at FLF when it opens on the 7th.  Watch this space for more from Fashion for Life including info about the event itself. 
This amazing little necklace is from [LNS Designs] for the June round of Candy Factory.  It is original mesh and comes with a hud allowing you to change the colour of the beads.  What I can't show in this photo is that there is sand swirling inside, like a real sand timer!  It is such an intricate and stunning piece, it really does need to be seen for real to be appreciated.

The rest of the photos from this shoot are basically me playing with shadows - my dear old pc does not like this at all, so it really is quite torturous, but now and again I can't help myself, despite ending up wanting to bang my head on my desk each time.… Read the restLadder of Time

spectrums, palettes, rainbows and murder

With all the colors in the universe, you would think we would have more than three collective nouns for colors. But rainbow, spectrum and palette are what we have. Kind of a dull set of collective nouns considering the collective noun for crows is murder.  Savoir Faire released a murder of crows for Pose Fair that ended last weekend. The poses are on sale at the store now and are still murderously good fun. On May 9th, FASHIONART will open up to the public and I think you will enjoy the creative exploration of fashion meeting art. Is fashion art? Nina Garcia said it is not. I think she’s wrong. I think after you go to FASHIONART, you will probably think she is wrong, too. Let’s wait and see. Delirium Style has released a lovely collection of maxi dresses with a short sleeveless jacket. The dresses come in a muted palette of blues, greens, grays, pinks and purples and the jacket has a HUD letting you decide whether it should match or contrast with the dress.  … Read the rest0507_003

The ladder is only a metaphor

For me, being that I am a single mom raising a little boy all by myself…Second Life is a little half hour, hour – whatever – of fun. Dressing up the dolly and taking cute pictures while maybe IM'ing with a friend or two. Sometimes I talk about where I found things and how, about events I'm diggin and stuff I found at them or weaving a random story that I feel goes with the photo. That's just how I roll and I don't expect anyone to get it, those that read it I'm appreciative of and the feedback is even better. Some people only post LOTD's, pics to music…whatever your style is, it's YOURS. Don't ever change doing what you like to do. That's what keeps it fun. Whether we're 1 day old or 10 years, how our avi looks is our own reflection of what we want and like. You could have brand new everything and someone could pick on something about it. Your eyes are too big, too squinty, mouth too big or too thin…whatever. The point is for you to like it, and enjoy what it is that you do in SL.… Read the rest

Getting My Weekend On!

Okay, tell me you haven't been in this scenario. It's the weekend, you've been invited out, and you have NOTHING to wear. So you run to a store and just start trying on EVERYTHING to try to find a new party outfit. It's crazy! Luckily in SL, you have a whole inventory full of beautiful things. Although, if you're like me, you still feel the need to run out and start buying new outfits just for one party.

Have you been to Pose Fair yet? You should go! Savoir Faire made this cool Dressing Room pose prop for the event. You just sit on it and it has several cute poses. I adore pose props, so you know I'm totally into this one.

Don't forget to do the Fifty Linden Friday round today! Fri.day has a special color of the Venus heels. You honestly can't beat some $50L heels! They are add-ons for the SLink medium feet.

Have a great weekend!!

Vicars and Tarts

I was invited to a Vicars and Tarts party so I decided to channel my inner Bridget Jones, though hopefully with less embarrassment. I decided though that bunnies were over rated and wondered that the biggest diva would look like tarted up in a corset. Which diva you ask? Why Miss Piggy of course. I got myself all dressed up, but was a little trepidacious of stepping out of the dressing room.
It took me a few minutes to get my confidence up, but then I had to check myself from all angles. I mean no one wants things drooping or jiggling out of place.

With everything all in place I think I am ready to head out.

Wish me luck!

Pose Fair: Part 3

Before the Easter festivities start today, I thought I would blog one more post about pose props from the Pose Fair that starts today at NOON. Today I’m bringing you 3 items from an awesome chic, oh wait, it’s ME! Yes, I don’t always make pose props, but when I do, they kick ass.

Just make a copy first of the original. All props are menu driven and menu adjustable.

Skin Fair Gets Ready to Kick Off

I like vintage swim suits a lot. I suppose it’s because half of SL has their bits hanging out all the dang time, I find it more alluring to cover mine up. Surf Co. has an offering of summer funtimes items at The Arcade and this not so little bikini is one of them. I thought it was a great time to trot out a bikini when I’m ready to launch into what will probably we a WEEK of really sharing great skins from skin fair. Yes, a week. There is a lot of awesome. My goals for Skin Fair this year are two fold. One goal is to find a new every day go to skin to add to my repertoire. I have a handful of trusted, quality skinners that I wear regularly. But it feels like branching out and adding another one or two is in order. Who knows what gems I will find? My other goal is to stretch my wings and try out skins that while they might not be me, are creative and inviting to wear.  I’m going to kick it of with PXL Creations. I am wearing the skin out of the box as it comes, in the freckled version, in pale tone.  … Read the rest

Stupid Little Dogs

I am not a dog person. This is pretty well known. I kind of DISLIKE dogs. Not the actual dogs. The idea of dogs. I’ve actually known some dogs in this world that I liked quite well. I even loved one or two.  But no, in general, I am not into dogs. My grandparents however, had a set of old lady friends, “The Beason Girls” they were called, and they were sisters in law whose husbands had died. They loved little dogs. They were the sort of ladies who always had on gloves and a hat, and their shoes and purse matched. They brought their little dogs with them wherever they went. When I was young, I was always curious about their dogs, they seemed to go through a LOT of dogs. Later I learned, that this was due to vacationing in Florida, along a freshwater canal. If you ever lived in Florida, you know that sending little dogs outdoors in some areas is akin to chumming for alligators. Thus, the Beason Girls had a lot of new little dogs. I would ask my grandfather what types of dog, their dogs where, and he’d invariably say “Oh some stupid little dog.” And when they were arriving he’d wonder, “I wonder what stupid little dog they got this time?” So when I saw this be-sweatered stupid little dog at The Mens Department from BIRDY well, you know it had to be mine.… Read the rest

Like A Room Without A Roof

I was going to go shopping for a new dining table, ok I WENT shopping for a new dining table. But then I was bored with everything and came home only to go shopping in my own inventory. I forgot I had this adorable cafe table from What Next. Yes, it’s probably two years old, but it’s still COMPLETELY adorable and so,  my big front porch now has a lovely outside dining area. I wasn’t sure what to do with my Second Life after breakfast, so I decided to do a little surfing. The problem with that is that it always becomes an hour, two hours, and then NOTHING is done. Eventually, I decided that there was nothing for it but to actually get up and out of my house. I’m off for adventure. Yes, I totally CAN ride a bike in heels. Can’t you? Have a beautiful day girls!

Popcorn Is The Color Of My Love

There is a new gorgeous, delicate, set of lingerie at Adam n Eve that is a must have for you girls who collect lingerie like some people pick up lint. I meant that like a good thing. Hmmmmm. ANYWAY. I was a little excited because her colors have names that make sense. Popcorn = soft yellow/cream color LIKE POPCORN. It never fails to vex me when I want to put something on and the color is TEQUILA. WHAT THE HELL COLOR IS TEQUILA ? A delicate, elegant lingerie set, this new release also includes appliers for you not so delicate wearers of the big ass and paste on boobies. They have names but I can’t even remember them. If you wear them you know what I mean. So this lingerie will be suited for ladies of all kinds of butt and boob size. The poses are a new release for MY ATTIC that I made and are still available for another two days for only 95L for a six pose set! After that, they’ll be at the main store for regular price! I am in love with this lingerie, you’ll probably see it again.… Read the rest

Morning Rush

I was once at a bridal shower, and all the married ladies were asked to give the future bride a word of advice. Her mother’s advice was, “Always do the dishes before you leave the house for the day.” I thought this was the stupidest most annoying advice I had ever heard in my life. Who wants to start off their day doing the dishes? It turns out this advice is brilliant. If you do the dishes before you leave, when you return spent from a long day in heels, THERE ARE NO DISHES TO DO. It’s amazing. You can just have a seat, and a nice cup and relax when there is no housework waiting on you! I can’t believe it took me so long to figure it out! I’m off to face my day.

I Started Out So Artsy

I was cruising a spot I’d seen on Honour McMillan’s blog and taking those “I’m fancy and standing in this place where I don’t belong, LOOK ON ME” sort of photos, when my friend London (whom I’d been chatting with) said “HEY YOU GOT A BAR!” and I realized, she’d popped over to my house. You can’t imagine how quickly I TP’d out to join her at my silly, cluttered home. We gossiped and caught up on the news, and I rolled out some cookies for us. After all, it’s impolite not to serve something nice to guests! We got to talking about eyes, and I was saying I needed NEW eyes, sometimes, you have to adjust the view in and out of your soul, and after some time off away from a lot of folks, today I can’t account for it but I just felt…..refreshed. And new eyes seemed like just the thing. We ran over to The Velvet for Cajsa’s smooth jazz set after we found my new ocular devices. This dress I’m wearing is one of my favorite new releases from DCNY – and it’s avail STILL at MY ATTIC event for only 95L – it’s a bold STEAL.… Read the rest

Weekend Mornings

Weekend mornings are my favorite. I can get ready slowly, at my own pace, considering what I’m going to wear, and do. Sundays are nice because I know my usual plan is to go listen to smooth jazz at the Velvet while Cajsa DJs. This Sunday I was having Gogo over for coffee and cakes and to catch up. Since I’m on plurk break right now, I’m not catching up on the dish and gossip as much as in the past, so I was looking forward to a bit of company! It’s a funny thing about Gogo, someone once described her to me, years ago, as “my good friend”.  At that time it wasn’t true and I said as much. But as time has passed she’s become one of the few people I trust and really look forward to seeing. Prophecy? Seems like it. We had a great morning visiting and catching up. PLURKERS stop doing those anon things. That was my SL related gossip take away from the conversation. Oh and the usual people are high maintenance, hoars, and shocked by SL secrets.… Read the rest

A Wicked Case of Carpal Tunnel

A wicked case of carpal tunnel is keeping me pretty quiet as I don’t want to type more than I have to. So, in summary, new cocktail dresses and evening clutches from Baiastice.
