I’m having so much fun setting up house in these tree houses. Despite my desire to change house constantly, which I’m still struggling with, I think I’ll do the holidays at least in the tree houses. Moving this here and that there, just little touches to make it all home, it’s a lot of fun. Continue reading →
I really loved the new release from Erratic but she’s releasing just for the Maitreya Lara body lately, which I do not have. However, since this one isn’t on a layer on the body I was hopeful I could make it work on my slink PHYSIQUE.
WOOOOT I did. She’s also released leggings (it’s really beautiful together) but I didn’t try because I’m guessing they’re on a layer.Instead I paired it with some really cute boots from Pure Poison, it’s all available at Collabor88 this month. I love the colors this month. Continue reading →
But there is always a November space after the leaves have fallen when she felt it was almost indecent to intrude on the woods…for their glory terrestrial had departed and their glory celestial of spirit and purity and whiteness had not yet come upon them.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Windy Poplars
Collabor88 is here and just in time, bringing with it lots of warm and cozy clothing to layer for warmth and color and just because they are beautiful. One of my favorites is Erratic’s sweater with an integrated lace skirt or long tunic and matching leggings. HUDs change the colors of the leggings and the lace. There are so many color options your head will spin. I am wearing two of the sweater colors for today’s post.
I can’t believe how much time I lost and now it’s almost Halloween and there are about 1000 Halloween things I haven’t done or worn! SO MANY THINGS! I love them all, want to do them all and then some. I don’t even care how silly they are, I am a fiend for Halloween. Continue reading →
“Beauty: it curves, curves are beauty. Shapely goddesses, Venus, Juno: curves the world admires.”…James Joyce
I am back at Furillen, the bleak and desolate sim replicating a limestone quarry and luxury hotel off Sweden’s coast. It’s bleak and spare and there is an austere beauty that makes it compelling. There is nothing austere, however, about me today.
Siddean Munro has released her newest mesh body, the Slink Physique Hourglass, a body for the curvilinear, the well-endowed Mae Wests and the wasp-waisted Dollys and Scarletts. Standard mesh will not fit because there is nothing standard about Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth or any of the other bombshells whose curves defined female beauty far centuries.
Women who opt for the Hourglass figure will have to wear appliers or specially made clothing, though certainly many clothing designers will rush to serve this market. Blueberry, whose dress I am wearing in these pictures, is among the first and even gifted all purchasers of the Hourglass Physique with a free bikini in the mesh body’s packaging from Slink.

Charlotte Bronte, who wrote Jane Eyre, the unforgettable heroine who said those strong, independent and feminist words, was not the first feminist. However, I don’t think it is an accident that the word feminist was coined within five years of her classic novel. I have been thinking about feminism and Jane Eyre lately, and most particularly this, “I am a free human being with an independent will.” The other day, a Washington Post opinion piece focused on how women are expected to surround their ideas and opinions with weak, soothing qualifiers to protect the tender male ego. It imagined famous quotes as said by women complying with the cultural demand that they efface their ideas. It’s funny and painful because it is so true. It is sad that more than 150 years later, a woman saying “I am a free human being with an independent will,” is still revolutionary. Continue reading →
