Black Friday is for Peasants

If you thought this shopping addict was going to be up before dawn tramping stilettos in a chaotic rush for a good deal, well you are confused. No my lovelies I’ve slept in and I’m not even sorry. I’ll be having a very relaxing day at home thank you.

I hope your Thanksgiving was bountiful and joyous.

You Could Do

WIthout a reason I stood around Alaska Metro’s store a couple of weeks ago collecting whatever G thing came my way from her Lucky Chairs. I picked up a ton of goodies, things themed for Halloween and things not, and I didn’t give a hoot either way.

Good quality and cute is always a win. Plus, Bite Me is not singularly a Halloween concept thus, I felt compelled to wear them on a Saturday for no reason at all.

What’s on tap for your Saturday In World? What are you up to? I think I’ll watch some TV with my cats. I’m amazingly exciting!

SL Is a Community

I'm Back? I Never Went Away
Ingenue’s Lisette dress comes in more colors than the rainbow. This is melon. I added Izzie’s Sheer Tights, one of the best investments ever.

I am always fascinated by how people think of and describe Second Life. Some people say it’s a game and some say a virtual form of social media. I think of it as a community center with infinite rooms for infinite communities to grow and develop. It’s like yeast, fermenting creativity and community.

Long Time, No Blog

Long Time, No Blog

Hello, world! That’s what the blank sample post always starts with in WordPress and it seems appropriate as it has been a long time since I last blogged. Fifteen months! I won’t bore you with all the details, but I have been having some health issues that just made SL seem overwhelming.  

On to more interesting topics like this gorgeous Poker Suit from Baiastice. I don’t know why it’s called Poker Suit, except maybe the décolletage will distract other players enough to help you win. I can see that happening. The top is tailored with a pagoda shoulder, a fitted waist, and a styling HUD that allows you to wear it cropped or with a peplum. You can also wear it with the bra showing or hidden and choose from a range of colors. The pencil skirt length can also be shortened with the HUD. There are a range of solid and prints. I chose this lovely lace brocade. With the print, I wanted a simple, classic shoe and there’s nothing more classic than Slink’s Siren stilettos

The beautiful pagoda shoulders add architectural interest to the Poker Suit jacket.

The jewelry is from Kunglers. I am wearing the Lola necklace and Vera earrings. Both come with a HUD scripted to allow changes to the metal and stones. The necklace also allows us to change the color of the cords. The nails are from AlaskaMetro, the Kimono manicure suiting the laciness of the suit.

I love Dura’s short hair. 

Finally, Glam Affair’s Stella adds the final touches.

I’ve been wearing that outfit for a while now, and just couldn’t find the time to blog it, but finally here it is! I’m absolutely in love with everything there : the gorgeous rings from Kunglers, the lovely necklace from Maxi Gossamer, the cute Tram hair, the adorable flats from Phedora… Definitely saving that whole outfit to wear again!

10/08/2018 – Pastel Dream

Oh hello! Have you seen the latest release from Cheeky Pea? It’s already available in the main store so no need to fight the lag at some overcrowded event. The lovely Carolyn Gazebo set features a gazebo (obviously), but also all the furniture you can see in the pictures : chair, sofa, coffee table, side table, chiminea (with flames!), coffee tray, rug and mugs, cute knick-knacks, and the loveliest potted daisies. I vote that Cheeky Pea start releasing more plants in the future, she’s really gifted with them!

27/07/2018 – The Heat Goes On…

As my UK friends complain about a 22°C “heat wave” (71°F), and another one in Arizona tells me it’s in the hundreds F where she lives, I, somewhere in the middle, struggle to sleep and suffer next to the fan all day. Anyone telling me global warming isn’t real must be up for an earful! Anyway, I am slowly going through the lovely things I haven’t had the chance to show you, and here are a few of them.

I’m so behind in my blogging… I have to admit I’ve been binge watching Elementary and it’s kept me away from SL these past days. Anyway I’m back with a mint themed post… Lots of pretty things from past rounds of C88 and Fifty Linden Fridays, that should now be back in stores at their regular prices, but still pretty.

19/05/2018 – I can’t stand Paris

Anyone who’s actually been to Paris, I mean, really been there, spent time, will tell you that it’s not at all the romantic city people think it is. The smell is horrible, there’s dog poop everywhere, people are rude… Whenever I spend even just one day there, my hair gets super dirty, and I can’t breather properly. If you ever plan on visiting France, let me know, I’ll give you the name of a dozen other cities you’ll love, just, not Paris.

Someone on Plurk was saying the other day that they miss ETD. For those of you who weren’t around then, ETD (Elikapeka Tiramisu Designs) used to be a famous hair brand in SL, that disappeared for a while, and then the designer came back under a new brand, Elikatira. Well you know what? I think her hair now is just as good as it used to be, and the little number she pulled yesterday for Fifty Linden Fridays proves it. Janiah is a super cute hairstyle, that matches perfectly with my lovely Tres Blah dress.
