In a Cookie Cutter World Be a Macaron

Macarons are such beautiful desserts it is no surprise that beauty lovers in Second Life celebrate them. The single macarons from Genesis Lab at The Arcade include an eating pose set that is adorable. Thankfully, my avatar chews with her mouth closed. I love how things at The Arcade come together even without a theme. For example, this outfit from Hazy with that lovely macaron pink is perfect for a trip to the bakery for some macarons. What is that? A fascinator, a lemon MACARON fascinator? and it’s from Yummy. What fresh conspiracy is this? On a side note, the headband attached to the fascinator would not work with this hair style, so I selected the individual face in texture edit and made it invisible. And isn’t the texturing on the back of that Hazy outfit perfect? These t-strap peep-toe pumps from Ingenue mix the sophistication of heels with casual lace-ups which makes them just informal enough for the outfit. I love the earcuffs from LaGyo and the hair from INK.… Read the restIn a Cookie Cutter World Be a Macaron

I Am Going to the Max

“A proper community, we should remember also,
is a commonwealth: a place, a resource, an economy.
It answers the needs, practical as well as social and spiritual,
of its members — among them the need to need one another” — Wendell Berry
Rustica was one of the first furniture stores I ever visited in Second Life. My friend Maht Wuyts from The Velvet and I would go there at least a couple times a month. We had a photo studio and it was furnished with Rustica’s Couch of Many Colors and there was that sleek recliner that offered Grey Goose martinis. There was the sleeper sofa that opened up with a mouse click into a bed. Long billowy curtains that pooled on the floor. Man, we loved that place. It felt like a real shop, a bit over-crowded and messy. You know, like an old-fashioned place that is the opposite of a mall. Unlike many stores, when you visited Rustica, the owner might be sitting behind the counter and would even chat. So Max Graf has been an SL acquaintance and friend for ten years now.… Read the restThose who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK

Sometimes It’s Lonely

Sometimes I’m very solitary and that’s by choice. I guess I need more excitement in my SL but I love my quiet Saturday evenings at home, with nothing but me and my thoughts. I can do whatever and no one cares, which is kind of a relief from the burdens of responsibility isn’t it. It’s kind of the best sort of relaxation. Tonight I’m trying on lingerie and just being my gidgy self in quiet of this most gidgiest of spaces. I picked up this rare bed from the Arcade this round – it’s made by the Loft (always great stuff) and I’m wondering if I will keep it. It’s really for teens and toddlers oh wait I have a baby. Where is my baby? I’m the worst mother. I think she’s visiting Auntie Inventory…. Well now I’m considering a new house and room for the baby and…suddenly my Saturday night got very busy.

Alone, but not lonely

       Some days you just need that alone time to recharge yourself. During that time being alone isn't being lonely, it's blissful. Maybe I am just saying that now that I finally have my alone time again. Last week was Hurricane Irma madness, everyone was home all week! I missed those quiet hours when it was just me doing what I needed to get done. Now everyone is back on schedule and I couldn't be happier, maybe not them, but it's all about me day. If you couldn't guess from the photo I have been to The Arcade. There will surely be more posts to follow featuring items, and I may even get them done before The Arcade closes, one can dream right?

Without a Thought or Purpose

I got up early to enjoy the sweet nectar of coffee and get some things done around the house. Sway invented the perfect coffee mug for us addicts to enjoy our morning brew. You can pick it up at the Arcade as one of the free fits. Awesome right?   I made myself a healthy breakfast but find myself drawn to the sweets left on my table. Why must it be so hard to be healthy? Did i eat the sweets or the healthy food? You’ll never know. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Thank you VeNuS(Freebies).

I was just about to throw the towel in as my hunting for goodies just wasn’t going very well at all, add to that PumeC, the skins I wear 95% of the time is having a SALE(with 2 other shops) OMG! So even before I TPed over I bought a load of Lindens then hot footed it over and of course it’s PACKED to the rafters and LAG HELL!  So I gave up till it’s quietened down. But then to my surprise, I actually managed to TP to the latest round of The Arcade woo hoo and although I did splash some cash there is CAKE for all and by that I mean in the middle of this event is a giant cake with pressies on it for everyone (I was in such a rush I’ve forgotten for which Birthday it’s for).  I’ve not started to unpack them yet but some of the top shops have given us goodies so that’s going to be a really nice way to kill a lazy afternoon. Then the icing on the cake was the notice from VeNuS about these NEW Group Gifts. Humma Humma Humma theses have made up for such a poor morning of hunting as they’re such good quality.  … Read the rest

Great Minds Thinking Alike

Gidge is my favorite person in Second Life and among my favorites in my first life, too. So, it’s no surprise we sometimes think alike and dress alike. Our mutual love for this dress from Nylon Outfitters was unplanned, but you know, I thought about reshooting with a different color, but I changed my mind. I like the black one best, and really, it’s a case of great minds thinking alike. By the way, if you like this dress, get yourself over to Collabor88 now because it’s the last day. I don’t like candy corn, but these critters crack me up. One of my favorite items from The Arcade this month. It’s amazing how they with their simplistic form still manage to express emotions. There’s some popcorn for all the drama from Lost Junction and a fun plastic table and stools from PLAAKA – all at The Arcade. I think they could be dangerous. The Yummy necklace and earrings crack me up as well, and I think they are perfect with this dress.… Read the restAll the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911. Lewis Black
