Early AM Studio Time

FAMESHED has another great round in store for you, and this gorgeous gown from Baiastice is beautiful. I love the washed out watercolor looks of the texture where it pools on the floor. Darkley posted a different color on her blog and styled it differently.  You can see it’s amazing whether worn very minimally styled or with accoutrements.  My computer is trying to spell accoutrements incorrectly. It’s driving me nuts. It keeps underlining it in red, and then I check it with a dictionary, no I’m right. What cretin set the spell check on this machine?

But I digress. Continue reading

At Days End – Uber Tea

If you’re like me, at the end of your pixel day you don’t feel like cooking usually. I strip down into my comfy lingerie and boudoir heels and just have  a cup and maybe a cookie or ten. Maybe a wee sandwich. There is not reason I can’t be civilized in my pixel life, and now you can too.

Molly’s Tea set will be available TOMORROW at UBER from Cheeky Pea. I’m showing off the SPRING colors but she’s also releasing a set in beautiful fall colors.  Continue reading

Orange You Glad You Stopped By…

In RL I don’t think I own a stitch of orange clothing and to be honest, I don’t own much of it in SL but when I saw these adorable and cheap skirts and tops from  *CoKo* at the Okinawa Summer Festival, I just couldn’t pass it up. Don’t let the vendor fool you, they are actually textured really nice.

A Day At The Beach

I’m fortunate enough to live about 20 mins away from the beach. I don’t visit it as much as I would like to, and I have no excuses really, but every time I go I just feel at home. You could put me in a shack and as long as I could see the ocean from it, I would be happy.  Unfortunately even shacks on the beach are out of my price range but luckily in SL for just pennies a day I can get a great view of the ocean from my very own trailer park.

Cherry Cool Aid

I have some friends who lived in Okinawa  a few years ago and they always posted the most beautiful pictures. I will probably never have the pleasure of visiting there myself ,but that doesn’t mean I can’t pretend to visit there in SL. I was busy exploring profiles and tping to different shops I’d never heard of, in this case mostly Japanese stores, last night; I ended up running into the Okinawa Festival.  I was thrilled. So many cute clothes, and gachas and lucky boards. All a dork like me could hope for! Here are some goodies I got.

It’s Bandana Day – Take Off Your Hair

It’s Bandana Day 2014, the day we take off our hair in support of those for whom having hair isn’t an option due to illness.

You’ll hear people say us doing this doesn’t make a difference. I get their point. We’re not curing anything, we’re not solving anything.

What are doing it for then? Why do we do it then?

It’s a gesture of solidarity. It’s a gesture of support, of respect.  We’re saying “We’re with you.” This is how we show our solidarity and our empathy.

An example of why/how gestures matter.

I have a good friend at work and she’s going through some tough times. She’s Cuban and we’ve shared some cafe con leches over the years while we visited. I went in early the other day and stopped by the bakery, I took her a guava pastry and a cafe con leche. When I brought it to her I said “It looked yesterday like you could use a treat today.”

She hugged me and cried.

Did I fix her problems? Nope. Did I make it all better? Nope.

But I made a small gesture, to say I cared, and I was thinking of her. And it matter TO HER.

You can still get your Bandana at Hair Fair and 100% of the proceeds benefits Wigs for Kids. They are all dontated by SL residents, creators and bloggers and just regular folk like us.  I hope we light up the feeds today – with a lack of hair.

 

Early AM At Flo’s Trailer Park Jamboree

Everyone else is still snoring in their campers but I’m up early because there is so much going on! Hair Fair still goes until tomorrow and I’ve forgotten to go pick up the dollarbie Kavar from EXILE put out. It’s sort of a silly rainbow hair and I have to have it.

There is still time to pick up this gorgeous ‘do from Wasabi Pills also, in fact Hair Fair several years ago was where I first became acquainted with Wasabi Pills. I fell in love then and have been delighted as time has pass at what an amazing and versatile creator she’s become.  Who will you fall in love with at the Hair Fair this year? Continue reading
