Carrie Bradshaw said, “The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.” I suppose I should credit Candice Bushnell, but the words are Carrie’s. If only Carrie could go to Shoetopia to find some really special ones.
I’m out on guard duty today at The Wastelands where some very poorly dressed girl is stalking me, just out of shot. I’m cropping her out because she’s on my nerves, and she doesn’t look good. I’m considering stabbing her with my fancy sword.
I’m wearing the SHIELD MAIDEN set from Azuchi which is coming to you from the Lootbox Gacha event. A shield maiden is traditionally a woman who has chosen to be a warrior in Old Norse tradition. A shield maiden will fight, defend and protect or attack as necessary.
So, I love to laze about and read. This lovely Boho bed from DRD at The Arcade is big enough for lots of layers.
My lazing cottage is the Daisy Cottage from HIVE for The Arcade. It has a lovely window that is perfect for some plants or pillows if you like hanging out front. In the background you can see a gramophone from Contraption, some artwork, a lemon tree, and The Secret Stores gorgeous vintage desk. Continue reading →

I saw this quotation attributed to Plato the other night, ““We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” and thought it did not sound right. I like the idea, though, that it is tragic that people fear the light, which I take as a metaphor for knowledge and truth. It certainly is tragic for our planet when people fear the light that science can shed on the issue. Anyway, I was suspicious of the quote, thinking it sounded too modern and in researching, discovered that there seems to be a cottage industry in fake Plato quotes. It’s amazing and worth checking out for the sheer vastness of it all.
Also worth checking out is the wonderful selection of holographic inspired items from Collabor88. I particularly liked this top from Stories&Co by Flowey. I like that it has the fluidity of color that we would expect without the insistent sheen that is common in most selections. It’s not matte, but it is subdued and I like that very much.
