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. Gorgeous and you need them – they’re at Collabor88. New hair from TRUTH. A great up do – especially for bloggers – SHOW OFF THOSE EARRINGS!

I forgot to wear earrings though.

I blame the carpal tunnel.

Keep It Simple

dec04_002

I completely fell in love with this coat from Topazia even though I am wearing it without its fur cuffs and collar. It comes in 9 lovely colors and is styled to easily wear over a dress or skirt. The collar and cuffs are typical prim fur with the typical alpha glitches that only disappear when viewed from the right direction. I thought the coat looked more chic and modern without them. However, for a more luxe look you can certainly add them. For me, I will go with the clean lines of the simple mesh coat.

As you can see, it’s not lacking for design details that define it as a high end coat with the caplet bodice and the lovely bow. The dress, worn a size smaller peek sour where it should and not where it should not. The little handbag from Cherry is delicious.

Pointy Hats Off To The Wizarding Faire

I finally made it to the Wizarding Faire this morning. I wanted two very specific things at the event, as I’m not a wand using/Harry Potter reading/cape wearer sort, I had planned a really limited amount of time to get in and get out.

Props to the builders, when you land you can touch a picture to get a map that details exactly where each creator’s items are. It’s built as an alley of shops (Harry Potter? I don’t know) and each creator is located with a small group in each one. It took me a minute to figure out how to get out of the landing zone – you have to touch a wall of rocks when then opens into the alley. There are words that say TOUCH HERE – but my camera wasn’t set high enough to see them initially.

When I got about the first area of shops – I got caught in the familiar lag soup. And this is where I also want to send out a HUGE set of props to the builders and even organizers- because I mentioned on plurk that I was having trouble and boom hello folks were there to see what was going on.

Being concerned about people’s shopping experience is amazing and really appreciated.  Continue reading

Events Are Everywhere!

Events, they’re everywhere. The trick to them is doing what my grandmother would’ve called separating the wheat from the chaff. While I might throw in my vote on the side of “There are too many events” what that really means is – there are too many crap events.

But that’s a generalization and those are never completely accurate now are they? Continue reading

Feeling (f)risqué

13 August 21

I kind of fell in love with the ISON Razzle pants and vest for Collabor88. They come separately so they can be mixed and matched. They come in six colors, black, white, gray, camel, green and blue, making them great foundation pieces for your wardrobe. I am a bit of pixel prude, so when I went to The Velvet last night, I added this lovely wrap from One Bad Pixel for a more discreet look.

13 August 21

However, daring fashionistas that don’t mind risking a little slip here and there, can war just the vest. Frankly both the One Bad Pixel wrap top and the Ison Razzle vest fit so well, i didn’t bother with the alpha layers.

Ladies and Gentlemen I Bring You Gacha

I am also bringing you the most popular pictures I’ve ever taken, according to FLICKR stats. Sure, my views went up weirdly when they changed the way they count them, but they’ve normalized. These however, are now a set of insanely popular FLICK pics, at least on my photostream. So, I think you should go buy all these things.

Let’s talk GACHA. Gogo caught my eye with this adorable bunny phone at VCO and now I have three. Continue reading

It means that Nicki Minaj has no trouble making money

Quartet (1)

It’s all my fault, really. I let them talk me into feeding the cat in the morning again. I knew full well that I’d be in for nightly wake-ups — 2 AM, 4 AM, 5 AM… 5:30 AM… the damned thing can’t actually read a clock to know when 6 AM is. She keeps waking me up until I shut her into the living room so that she stops stepping on my bladder and meowing into my ear. It’s a sad business, hungry morning cats. The result is that I’ve had interrupted sleep for four months now, and I admit that I’m a little exhausted.

How exhausted? So exhausted that I have Nicki Minaj’s Beez in the Trap stuck on autorepeat in my brain. My brain is inordinately proud that I went and looked up every single lyric, too. Do you know what Beez in the Trap means? I DO. I could expound upon it, but I won’t.

Instead, my avatar took a little trip to the cutely surreal surroundings of the lovely Honey Kitty sim of Quartet. It looks like the maker scaled back lately. No longer is the build a full-sized crazy themepark full of elephants and broken toys and magic; only about half of it is. The rest seems to be houses. Well and good, I’m glad designers are keeping afloat somehow in this fallen world of ours.

So yeah. Quartet — go see the giant cat and the pig in the tractor and the plethora of giraffe, and support Honey Kitty too. [SLURL]

I Traveled To Tokyo With Flowers In My Hair

I wanted to go shopping somewhere new, so I put in SHOPPING MALL into SEARCH.

After wading through a bunch of places that had keywords shopping, shopping mall, big shopping mall, best shopping mall, shopping mall of the shopping, etc etc etc I found someplace that looked interested, said it was anime themed and I didn’t have anything better to do so I popped over.

Prepping for Love Donna Flora and Sunday Dinner

I started out my Sunday perfectly, in a beautiful vineyard with a winding country road. Every few meters a cart or tent awaits a creator to come fill it with it’s goodies for the upcoming LOVE DONNA FLORA event.

I drug my heavy boxes and pose stand down the path until I got to my tent and got set up before the morning sun made me too hot.

I did end up stopping in the courtyard at the center of the build at the event, just to enjoy the scenery and have a cool drink.  It was about that time that I realized, I hadn’t SHOPPED ALL DAY!

I decided to rectify this immediately. Continue reading

The Truth About Mornings

I wasn’t sure how to start my day after I’d taken the time to get dressed and do my nails. I knew I wanted breakfast but couldn’t decide on what I was willing to bother making.  I’m lazy in both worlds and I’m afraid we both skip breakfast more than we should.

Pixel Gidge decided that cake is breakfast too. It also gives me a chance to show you her new dining room set. Ria Bazar released the Toronto dining set and it’s larger than my old set which, although I loved it, was what I wanted. My linden house seems to be proportioned for back when furniture WAS so much larger and I always feel like huge portions of it are empty. It was about 500 lindens for the whole set, table rug, cabinet, lamp etc – so a STEAL. Continue reading
