So, I was considering what to wear on this subway. I really didn’t want anything ridiculous revealing. Something I would hope not be accosted in is what I was thinking. I remembered this gorgeous dress Cecelia Petion had posted on Plurk, so I unpacked the Poppy blogger box for June and saw the box inside had a dress named Cajsa. OMG! What could this be? Then when I unpacked it, it was the dress I remembered from Plurk…I just about did handstands. I would have if I had an animation handy. This struck me as the apotheosis of Second Life serendipity. They way things just fall into place.
I am usually ambivalent about jumpsuits. In my first life, I think they are annoying. They are not particularly flattering and seriously, who wants to almost completely undress every time they go to the restroom? But we don’t pee in SL, so bodysuits are not so ridiculous here.

My mother would always say “They say Elizabeth Taylor is the most beautiful woman in the world, but she isn’t. it’s Natalie Wood.” She was timeless and elegant, and I was excited to see that one of SL’s most classic skin makers, Adam N Eve, had made a new skin for Vintage Fair in the spirit of her style.
If you’re newer to SL you might not be familiar with the brand, but I can promise it’s one you need to know. Classic styles and fashion, and very unique and beautiful skins to make your look more personal are what you’ll find there. I’m such a fangirl, I risk sounding ridiculous. Continue reading
I took to the trees because I was doing a book review of a book called The Solace of Trees that I reviewed on my book blog and on YouTube. It’s about refugees and it is timely, important, and not terribly well done. Continue reading
It’s funny what you forget, and what you remember, over ten years time. Asked recently to recollect my days in SL, the arc of my existence in pixel space, and the story flowed. But what struck me wasn’t the fails, the losses, the friends who turned out to be flakes and went their way.
No, it was the constancy of the right people – when you are lucky enough to meet them. Continue reading
While I don’t role play it is fun to dress up. I had a good excuse because I wanted to review Age of Myth, this book I read that I really loved. There were some outfits at The Arcade that were perfect so the timing was perfect.
I spent the afternoon at The Trace Too, using all the seating there for my poses. I hopped on scooter and a bench that were on-site. I went there to make a video blog about a book I had just finished reading.
