Pixel Gidge has luxurious, beautiful mornings every day. I think this is because my own RL mornings are the opposite of hers. As I stumble through the chaotic, wrinkled messy world that is RL I juxtapose SL Gidge’s morning when I blog – sitting it opposite my own.
The more peaceful and lovely her morning, make that the opposite for me. Continue reading →
Vixen Thibideau has launched a new EVENTS blog (I am spelling her name probably) and it’s called Eloquence SL. I’m always interested in GOOD events coverage, I enjoy SERAPHIM but I think that more GOOD coverage is a positive thing for shoppers and bloggers alike. Eloquence is currently having a launch event where many of the designers you know and love have put out free gifts, at the DEJA BREW cafe.
All of the women in my family can sew, or did when they were alive. Everyone had these types of corners with fabric strewn about, with bobbins and pins and patterns, or pattern paper, tossed around willy willy.
Everyone can sew, except me.
I could never sort it. My mother actually became a professional seamstress, creating home decor items for boutiques of various sorts. If you could do it with a sewing machine, or even just a needle, my mother can do it. She could sew dresses for me, just looking at the picture. She made her own patterns, taught by her grandmother, who could do the same.
This beautifully detailed set from PIXEL MODE for THE ARCADE (which is STILL OPEN BTW) gave me a chance to give Pixel Gidge a new skill, she’s now going to learn to sew.
I love things for my home that continue or enhance the narrative of Gidge’s SL. These items fit perfectly into this alcove into my new house ! It was meant to be

Storms are rolling in here on Juicy Island and I’m enjoying the cool breezes as I wind down my day. MY ATTIC starts tomorrow with amazing new things, all of which are only 95L and an amazing bargain. Continue reading →
Daryl Hannah and Neil Young are apparently an item. This is RL gossip. We were discussing this at work, and were talking about our favorite Daryl Hanna movies. I kept thinking there was something I LOVED her in, something unlike her other work and I couldn’t place it.
Until Wicked Peach released her Extraterrestrial makeups for The Liaison Collaborative or whatever the hell the name is. TLC. That thing. Anyway, my favorite role Daryl Hannah ever played was PRISS. Continue reading →
I don’t know. I used to think they were. Now I think I’m wrong. But I don’t know I’m wrong. What I do know is that Mutresse has anteaters at THE ARCADE. Mine likes to do fashion shoots with me. What a versatile creature. She’s only a few accessories away from fashion blogger, I swear. Continue reading →
There’s only a few designers with the confidence in their design aesthetic and creative skills to resist the tides of change while simultaneously surfing the waves. Monica Outlander is one of those artists. Her new MiaMai Black Label collection is the perfect exemplar of that duality of leading and trailing edge design.
What do I mean by that? Well, she is using appliers for Slink Mesh attachments to enhance her clothing. Meanwhile, she provides system layers for people who use the default avatar. She is using mesh in many creative ways. Meanwhile, she will use flexi-prims when they suit the design better. It is that flexibility that leads her to use whatever method best suits the design – not just the newest method, that shows confidence and commitment to her own vision.
