Uber has kicked off again with a sumptuous round of elegance and classic beauty. I really like this round, there’s so much exotic pretty available, it’s hard to pick what to like most. Wasabi Pills has a gorgeous hair that has an optional headpiece that is stunning, I need to find a way to incorporate this into my everyday, doncha think? Continue reading →
Second Life’s Penumbra Spring/Summer Fashion Week continues through the 23rd. A la Folie had a big collection including this adorable dance dress, MADNESS. It has a HUD that allows you to choose from six textures for the dress, and six colors for the ruffles and the coordinating shoes and jewelry (not shown). This made me think of the One Note Samba – built on one note, but the other notes are sure to follow.
This is just a little samba, built upon a single note Other notes are sure to follow but the root is still that note Now this new one is the consequence of the one we’ve just been through As I’m bound to be the unavoidable consequence of you.
Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice has a gorgeous zip dress called Damie at Uber this month. It comes in 10 color combinations, all with gold zippers and a gold belt. She also has a coordinating clutch on sale at Uber, but I left it in the car while i took a walk on the beach.
It’s never the best idea to blog in SL while on pain meds, at least not for me. If my fashion details are to be believed, i’m wearing four sets of hands and two heads right now. I seem to look ok though, so I’m going with it. Who even knows? Continue reading →
It should come as no surprise that I ALWAYS overpack when I travel. This time I’m heading north north north from my warm southern home. It’s still terrible winter there, and I’m ill prepared for what that’s going to mean. But I’m going to pack pack pack and hope for the best. I know two pair of pajama pants might seem excessive but one is warm and one is cooler. And I need both casual clothes and work clothes.
Oh my this is going to be a lot of bags, isn’t it?
Well it doesn’t matter, the adventure alone will make lugging all these things along well worth it!

We can imbue talismans with tremendous power through the powers of faith and suggestion. If you believe something will work for you; it often will. Monica Outlander of MiaMai has created in real life and now in Second Life®, a collection of talismanic sprites that can bring health and happiness to those who invest the power of belief in them. If your worldview is more prosaic and devoid of supernatural beliefs, they can also be enjoyed for their quirky adorability and the come with a magnificent free shelf that can be used to display these sprites, but I think I will also rez a few more of these shelves for otters things as well.
There’s also a home protection sprite hanging on a branch that is equally adorable. The gorgeous house is the Hudson Townhouse from Scarlet Creative and can be found at Collabor88 this month. Continue reading →
I got my boyfriend at Dysfunctional Designs. It’s perfect because I know exactly where he’s been and I don’t have to worry about pixel disease. Plus, he’s really a boy so no worries about humiliating catfish moments later. Continue reading →
I could never live in the desert. It is not just that I do not like heat, but also that my psyche needs green. I discovered this after I moved to Montana for a time to help my sister. I was unaccountably depressed while I was there, sleeping much more than usual, lethargic, weepy and not at all my usual self.
Then I decided to take my nephew on a college tour back to Minnesota. When we got toward the eastern side of South Dakota and the brilliant greens of a well-watered landscape came into view, my heart lifted. I felt a euphoria that was so intense it felt as though I were floating. In that moment, I realized that my misery was more to do with the colors of the landscape than any other factor. I moved within two months, back to where the land was green.
That does not keep me from appreciating and loving the stark beauty of the desert. The subtle striations of color, the cracked and blistered earth, the desiccated silver of the tree trunks and the hazy dustiness of the succulents are beautiful. I love the plane geometry of the landscape that we cannot see when covered with an abundance of flowers, bushes, grasses and trees. There is something magnificent and courageous about the flora and the fauna eking out a life in these marginal landscapes. There is a profundity in this life of scarcity – this life on the margins.
But it is not for me. I want a green land. Give me the entire green rainbow from the palest milk green of an Easter Rose to the deepest darkest greens of a Doug Fir. I need green to live. It’s that fundamental. But, one of the nice things about Second Life® is that I can visit the beauty of the desert without the heat or the misery. And the desert at ISON is particularly beautiful – a living desert, not an ocean of sand. Continue reading →
