And The Greatest Of These Is…

Sometimes you have one of those posts where you’re going to say a lot of things and then you realize you don’t have the mental energy for the follow up conversations that will happen?

This is one of those posts.

I’m travelling and thought I’d kick off with some swimming but I wandered into this place, and now I think my travels might just end up being a tour of LEA. Not the worst thing, but the windlights are hell on our skin.

Start Your Day With Whimsy

So much to do today, I need to pack for a trip for a few days, I need to blog, I need to just do all my SL things but I decided instead that brunch with Whimsy had to come first. We plotted and gossiped the way women do and moaned over how we’d like some eggs benedict in real life now that we’ve been teased with it in SL.  Continue reading

A League Of My Own – Because Willis Took My Title

Every month after I pay tier I pick out something I want to get, usually something not small and treat myself. This month my goal was more appliers for my Lelutka face. I wear ARIA most of the time now (I feel like I should take the others for a stroll more often) and I’ve got a small closet of skins for it but my desire is that I can wear ANY of my favorite’s ANY TIME. I don’t want to take my head off to wear you.  Continue reading

Lingerie Maker To Her Royal Highness…Or Something

I’m picky in my SL. Pixel Gidge is not low rent. I suppose I could role play low rent by WHY. I only want the best, the things I know aren’t junk. Because of that, there are some brands I will literally wear the hell out of, that’s because they’re always going to be high quality and I don’t even have to WONDER how they will look on me.

Take for instance, LUXURIA. In my little fantasy I keep Roslin locked away in a tower and she’s frantically sewing new lingerie for me to wear. I’ll feed her well but no one else can have my pretties. Luckily for you, that’s just a fantasy but I do covet her pretties very hard. She nails it every time she releases, sometimes smoldering sexy, sometimes adorable girl next door cute. Continue reading

Bandana Day 2015… The End Is Here

It’s Bandana Day, the day we take off our hair just for a day, to show respect for those who have to do without. We have the luxury in SL to be anything, do anything, wear anything. In our real lives we’re constrained by biology in ways many people never talk about. Illness, disability, these things impact our real lives but in SL people can get away from them, ignore them and be free from the constraints that reality places upon us.

But for one day we take off our hair to remember that beauty isn’t about hair, it isn’t about a thing you can see. Beauty is about who you are inside.

Hair is the ribbon on the package. It’s what inside the package that matters.

Hair Fair 2015 wraps up today. It’s your last chance to contribute to this amazing event by shopping at the wonderful shops that are participating. I hope you make it over if you haven’t yet.

I hope to see more of you without your hair today. I’m so proud of everyone I’ve seen on the feeds already.

Happy Sunday everyone.

Sun Soaked

Pixel Gidge is exhausted from the sun she’s soaked up all day.  I’ve been struggling with a bikini top that worked for me, they were all just “off” no matter what body I was wearing, but this one I dug up from Luxe Paris – great for a big rack :)  . Unless you have a freakishly big rack, then I can’t help you.

I’ve got a new dresser to find space for, I’m struggling with the idea that it might actually be time to move house – but how can I leave when my view is SO AMAZING? No I might just have to reorganize inside, this house is designed for viewing amazing scenery which I have. Yes, that’s my plan. Reorganize.

But first you’re going to have to excuse me, I’ve got shower off. I’m dying of sweat.

When You Sober Up – HAIR FAIR IS STILL ROLLING

In my youth I was notorious for ONE MORE when I got home. Just ONE MORE. You hate for the fun to end, just one more drink, something fun before you let sleep take over. It’s a time waster, filling your hours until reality returns. But it provides relief from whatever you’re avoiding anyway – at least sometimes it does.

Two things to share on this Thursday. I just realized that this dress I blogged the other day actually comes in sizes FITTED to the Belleza body – I’m wearing my Isis body and the version of the dresses FOR that body. HOT DAMN. That’s brilliant. Continue reading

Poolside Blogger and Other Misunderstandings

My friends Whimsy and Sasy collaborate each round of My Attic for something wonderful. They make photoboxes for bloggers, or great items with lovely poses and props for everyone. When they passed me their item for this round of My Attic, my poor eyes that are adjusting to contacts (monovision, what fresh hell is this?) read “Poolside Blogger and Friends” in the description as this was something for bloggers, and their friends.

“Oh nice, another photobox for bloggers YAY” my brain said.

It’s not. It’s a big ass pool. Continue reading

Set A Lovely Table

My grandmother was obsessed with  dishes, and setting a lovely table. She had dishes for sandwiches and soup. She had dishes for this party, and that party. She had no less than five full sets of dishes when she died, and twice that of small sets she’d bought for entertaining. Continue reading
