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.
Maitreya released LARA 4.0 with BENTO Hands and that’s big news on the grid today. In other news you’ve probably got minutes left before COLLABOR88 tears down so really, hop to it if you haven’t. I’ve got my coffee, I’ll wait while you run over. Continue reading
I picked up the LUXEBOX this month and had to log in before my typist ran off to the RL to check out what was in it. So far my best love is this flawless top from Azuchi which fits perfectly over the pants they released for UBER. It comes in five colors in the box and is a great staple piece for your spring wardrobe.
I haven’t peeked at the rest of the offerings yet because it was telling me I was clicking too fast to get my goodies and ain’t nobody got time to wait like all that. (Okay I know scripts yadda yadda I understand, I just don’t have patience this early).
I’m looking forward to opening the rest in a bit.
Happy Wednesday girls!

I’m missing some sort of female knowledge base, wherein information about plants is kept. I always feel like I’m supposed to know wtf some plant is, and really my knowledge base is limited to roses, daisies, dandelions and possibly tulips if they aren’t strangely flowered.
So when I got to rezz these succulents from MISH MISH my brain said SO THAT’S WHAT THOSE ARE! I’ve heard this term forever, I had no idea. Also, I’ve seen this plant a million times and had no idea what it was. Continue reading
I’ve lived a lot of places and I tend to take “sayings” from those places with me when I move. One of my favorites was “Don’t get froggy” when meant – don’t JUMP into something, either with attitude or just generally sticking your nose in where it didn’t belong. If you started to start mouthing off into something that wasn’t going to go well for you, a friend would say “Oh don’t get froggy.” It always made me laugh. Continue reading
There are some bloggers who do an amazing job of reflecting a variety of skin tones when sharing new releases from creators. I’m not one of them. I think my instinctual nod would go to Sydd Sinister. There are probably others.
I’m always impressed with the amount of effort it takes to make a gorgeous contact sheet style post showing all the options with a skin or hair release. I decided to shake myself up and choose a totally different skin tone for myself, simply because in Second Life we can be whomever we want. Continue reading
Yes this is all for me, but the caloric intake required to support keeping this mesh body rendered is outrageous. We fashion bloggers we have to eat a lot. It’s like the opposite of real life. If we don’t eat tons of food we melt back to Ruth.
No one wants that. Continue reading
It begins with the clanging of an emotionless metal heart. The banging and clanging wakes me from my otherwise peaceful slumber and reminds me, it’s Saturday. This is perfect because this means I don’t actually HAVE to do ANYTHING. Continue reading
Having a social calendar is suddenly making my SL a busier place, and I’m loving it. Except for one thing. I’m TIRED. Cajsa and I were out this weekend and reminiscing on the so many parties we used to throw and attend, and how much time we used to spend together and she remarked “Yes, you never slept.” I guess that’s true. I was younger, or stupider (more stupid for the literati). Continue reading
I’m pretty excited as we’re heading right into the holiday season full steam ahead. In the US we have Thanksgiving tomorrow which is in fact THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS no matter what the scrooges say. It’s that most wonderful time of the year of good cheer and family and friends and WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUND.
I like it, can you tell? Continue reading
