Bikini Babes of Collabor88

I love summer in SL. Even though summer is actually available to us always and never has to stop, I’ve realized I need to embrace the seasons there and make them special.

Thus – summer joy is upon me when I saw these great bikinis out for the offering at Collabor88 this month. I’ve never been a “bits hanging out girl” despite the appeal that some of those seem too have for SL. I like a bit more tradition and these bikinis fit the bill for me.

Probably my favorite thing is that you can mix up the colors on the bits of them to change your look, coordinate with your hair, whatever suits your fancy. Personally I was in a pink and purple mood today, can you tell?

I’ve been a bit MIA lately because now and again life gets in the way, but here I am, like the bad penny.

I always turn up.

Get over to the July round of Collabor88 and check out what’s new and awesome. You won’t be sorry.

Pregaming Summer

I heard a ridiculous ad on the radio where they were proclaiming that they were going to PREGAME MY SUMMER.

That’s called SPRING folks, it already HAS a name.

Regardless of that, my pool is full and I’m ready for it all. Continue reading

Poolside with Friends

I am notorious for wearing my lingerie as swimwear in SL and I truly have no plans to stop any time soon.  I took advantage of my new pool from Trompe Loeil to prove this yet again this morning. Continue reading

The Shadow of Chthulu

I wasn’t going to post this picture as I took it playing with shadows and goofing off last night, however that changed after I read plurk this morning.

Morgana Hilra who blogs over at So Hawt SL is having one of those days. One of those days where she feels pressured to blog differently because of X or whatever. Someone is in her ear, or she’s feeling like she needs to change.

I think it’s great to grow and change but the idea that someone would pressure someone else into making their blog something that it isn’t is uncool. It’s downright wrong. Continue reading

I Mean This Pose Ironically

If you are an old enough avatar you know that there are a handful of poses that at one time were plastered all over every vendor ad on the grid. They’re universally regarded as not only stale but sort of terrible.

Personally, I tend to only use my own poses (with a couple of notable exceptions) so imagine my surprise when scrolling through my pose stand filled with Gidgey made poses and I ran into this nearly perfect knock off of one of the DREAD poses. God, I made it so long ago, I probably didn’t realize I was channeling it.

Accept it with the irony with which it was intended, please. Continue reading

The Arcade closes at midnight, do you know where your gacha is?

“ that fragrance which fills the soul with optimism and faith, the fragrance of the crushed beans beneath the jet of boiling water curving from the kettle, the smell of coffee.”

“…that fragrance which fills the soul with optimism and faith, the fragrance of the crushed beans beneath the jet of boiling water curving from the kettle, the smell of coffee.”

In Halldor Laxness’ extraordinary book Independent People, there are well over 150 references to coffee, most of them reverent. That is as it should be. Laxness was Icelandic and they are among the world’s greatest coffee consumers–along with all the other Scandinavians.

Although Swedish-American, I am closer to real Swedes in my coffee consumption. When I was a kid, I put coffee in my milk, sometimes now I will put milk in my coffee when I get a latte, but usually drink it black. There is no perfume in the world quite so warm and evocative as the smell of coffee.

So I was thrilled by the coffee shops at The Arcade. I took some pictures outside the other day, but today I am shooting inside where I combined elements from the RH Designs Coffee House and the PLAAKA Coffee Factory.  The building is from PLAAKA’s coffee factory. I just fell in love with the look of the crumbling old factory being repurposed to serve coffee. The broken down wall and patio appeals to my love of things old and worn.
