Gogo and my IMs read like those text message commercials with James Earl Jones and Malcolm McDowell.
“Have you been to Fameshed?”
“No. Not yet. I dunno if I am gonna go.”
“Me too, but I wanna go out. We should go.”
“I dunno. I’m tired. But I might go. Or I might go somewhere else.”
“I wanna go somewhere. Maybe.”
And on and on like that. Sometimes we’ll have entire conversations on how tired we are of the trend of everything being brown. (Look around, it’s a thing. Suddenly everything is dark and brown at some events.)
Anyway, in the course of this conversation, the event CHINESE NEW YEAR came up. We both agreed that the Chinese boxes of awesome made by LARK were must have, and so even though she was dithering about going out I headed over there. The original landmark seemed to have landed me in a pit. From the sky, where I ended up, it seemed like there was a tunnel leading to the event, or a walkway or something, but where I LANDED it was some sort of poofing rendering hell where not only could I not see, I was disoriented and unhappy. Plus, there was no shopping there. Continue reading
I was cruising a spot I’d seen on Honour McMillan’s blog and taking those “I’m fancy and standing in this place where I don’t belong, LOOK ON ME” sort of photos, when my friend London (whom I’d been chatting with) said “HEY YOU GOT A BAR!” and I realized, she’d popped over to my house.
You can’t imagine how quickly I TP’d out to join her at my silly, cluttered home. Continue reading
While some prints will cover every square inch of fabric, particularly if they are printed instead of woven prints, other prints will end near the selvage leaving a border of the background fabric. This gives the designer the option of using the selvage end as a border. You can see that technique in this dress from DCNY where the print ends slightly above the hem. It’s an easy and clever way to add a design detail to your dress – though sometimes it does end up using more fabric for the entire dress because you cannot minimize wastage by cutting the skirt in opposite directions. I think it’s worth it, though, for the added element it brings.
Trompe Loeil has released a home pub for FAMESHED this round and I had this huge spot left where my Christmas tree was, and well, HOME PUB! You understand right? I NEEDED it! Continue reading
Ok yeah I got my Zooby baby a Halloween costume again. Sometimes I like dressing up my wee doll as much as I like dressing up my Gidge doll. But I couldn’t resist sending Gidge out to pull pixel single mom duty with her wee doll for Halloween. Continue reading

…is that I want everything perfect the moment I lay the house. Why isn’t everything where it goes? Oh wait, I have to DECIDE where it goes? New house, new floorplan? UGH. Decisions!
Baiastice’s contribution to THE ARCADE this month was the amazing set of Fairies and the shelf for them to sit on. I decided they were PERFECT above my fireplace. I won’t be told otherwise.
Barnesworth Anubis’ LAKESIDE COTTAGE will be the venue for my SL adventures, at least for a while. It’s so gorgeous, I still can’t get over all the windows looking out into the sea. I’m in love with this plot and the way the house works here.
My alcove loft I’ve converted into a study and whimsical family room area. It’s the closest to done in the house.
I can get used to this.

I am here today to talk to you about those hands. Cuz, I too, was a wearer of meat hands. And LO my friend Sasy said “GIRL, why you still wearing those MEAT HANDS!” And I said “NAY! For I like them and they are what is natural and good in my eyes!” And Cajsa said “BUT THE MEAT HANDS DON’T HAVE EXPRESSION!” and I said “But they are MINE and I love them.”
But then I put on the mesh hands and I left behind the meat hands forever.
BUT THERE IS HOPE YEA THERE IS HOPE! If you too say “I love the meat hands but I sure wish I could get some of those amazing fingernails, WHAT DO I DO?” Let me tell you all about it. Continue reading
I’ve been ready for the weekend every since this morning, because DCNY released an adorable summer dress for FLF and it’s going to be available in other colors for regular price starting tomorrow I’m guessing. It’s NOT too late to grab it though for 50L! Continue reading
I am also bringing you the most popular pictures I’ve ever taken, according to FLICKR stats. Sure, my views went up weirdly when they changed the way they count them, but they’ve normalized. These however, are now a set of insanely popular FLICK pics, at least on my photostream. So, I think you should go buy all these things.
Let’s talk GACHA. Gogo caught my eye with this adorable bunny phone at VCO and now I have three. Continue reading
