The Healing Power of Sprites

  We can imbue talismans with tremendous power through the powers of faith and suggestion. If you believe something will work for you; it often will. Monica Outlander of MiaMai has created in real life and now in Second Life®, a collection of talismanic sprites that  can bring health and happiness to those who invest the power of belief in them. If your worldview is more prosaic and devoid of supernatural beliefs, they can also be enjoyed for their quirky adorability and the come with a magnificent free shelf that can be used to display these sprites, but I think I will also rez a few more of these shelves for otters things as well. There’s also a home protection sprite hanging on a branch that is equally adorable. The gorgeous house is the Hudson Townhouse from Scarlet Creative and can be found at Collabor88 this month.

  I put together a new top from Glam Affair with the Cael shorts from Baiastice. Both the top, the shorts and the Baistice necklace can be found at Uber.… Read the rest150225_003

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. Personally, in a dystopia I feel that being a stylist would be a really valued role – after all – who wants to be UGLY under their gear? NO ONE, that’s who! I can take up to two customers at a time depending on what we’re doing today. Toxic waste? You’re soaking in it! Just have a seat on the tires. How long can you hold your breath while I work? These great boots and armor are available at THE ARCADE which opens in a few hours. I’m so excited. I still didn’t get the dollhouse I want, but hey I ALREADY OWN A DOLLHOUSE, I will so use it if I can’t get the one i want. Gidge Is Wearing:

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. DO YOU HAVE YOUR LIST READY? I do…I need that dollhouse people. NEED. NEED I TELL YOU! Featured on Itsonlyfashionblog.com

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! The ARCADE opens on the 1st of March. Are you ready? Gidge is Wearing:

A Personal PSA — Take More Pictures

      Before I say one word about my outfit, I want to urge you to take more pictures. When you are with your family, arrange yourselves in a huddle and take a picture. When your grandparents are visiting, cozy up and take a picture. When your sister is over for coffee, take a picture. Take more pictures, take them in abundance. Take too many. Take so many you can throw away the bad ones.   I say this because I spent yesterday with a difficulty and heartbreaking task. My friend’s daughter died, her body rejecting the heart she had been given. For whatever reason, that family is not a picture-taking family. In all there were 5 recent pictures of her, all selfies and one good photo taken by someone else. There were no pictures of her with her grandmother, her aunts, her baby brother. This was a close family that spent many weekends and holidays together, and there was not a picture to be had. So I was asked to take those selfies and photoshop them into old photos with her grandmother, her aunts and other family members.… Read the rest150221_004

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:

Through Darkness, Comes the Light

A couple of decor pics today, usually a little darker than i’d do, in the actual brightness sense, not like chopping peoples nads off or something, but I am trying to do at least one Decor post a week from now on so excuse my rusty and pathetic skills! Some items are from past events such as The Arcade, and The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, others are from events still going on such as Oh My Gacha, and The Liaison Collaborative… make sure you check them out and if they are older items (not marked with an event) get on over to the main stores and check out there, you may still be able to play the gacha machines, YAY!

A Valediction for Parenthood

  I watched the penultimate episode of Parenthood last night. It was emotionally exhausting and I cried far harder than I probably should over fictional characters in a television series. When I watched the first episode of Parenthood six years ago, I had no idea what I was getting into. It was such a quiet show that seemed to have such humble ambitions – merely telling the story of an American family. I think there was a clue right from the start, though, that this was going to be more than a post-milennial Eight is Enough. After all, their last name is Braverman.   Braverman! That name must be something to live up to. I actually looked up the name’s origin because I was pretty sure it did not originate with some courageous Saxon stalwart holding off a Viking horde and being called a “braver man” than most and then passing that name on for generations. It turns out to be Jewish surname from the Ukraine, a form of the Yiddish word braver which means good or honest.… Read the restSnapshot

Catching Up

I shot these pics a few days ago wearing an outfit featuring items from last month’s Collabor88. Don’t despair, you can now find them in the store. The top, leggings and boots are all from Tres Blah. They come with a puffy jacket, too, but I left that off. Growing up in a place where it’s really cold, I have never understood those puffy jackets with no sleeves as anything more than an extra lining if your coat is not warm enough.
Aren’t those boots adorable? Of course, if it’s cold like it gets cold in Minnesota, rubber rain boots will freeze your feet unless you have layers of insulation, big felted liners for warmth. The gorgeous short cut is from Vanity Hair. The barrette can be changed using the HUD. Store info at Blogging Second Life
