When I put on the gorgeous bikini from Zaara, I immediately wanted to take pictures on the beach. I popped on over to The Trace Too and was immediately reminded of one of the reasons I stopped logging into Second Life. It seems to me once I put on my mesh body, hands, feet, head, hair, clothing, accessories, and a pose hud, I could not move. I took one picture and then spent about 2 hours trying to reposition the camera. I gave up and went back to my prim in the sky.Continue reading
The month of May might mean flowers and bright colors to you, but to those of us from Indianapolis it only means one important thing.
THE INDY 500.
I’ve written about it before, but let me assure you it’s not changed. Black and white rule the day and I’m delighted to have realized it’s TIME and to be here to celebrate this time of the absence of color. We love black and white, and you might be surprised to learn that despite this being a hot sweaty mess of a race day, there are a lot of quite elegant events that accompany it – and everyone, I mean EVERYONE is dressed in Black and White.

Onyx Leshelle was a darling and gave away 7 lovely gifts to Maitreya group members for Christmas. Among those AMAZING finds is this beautiful dress which I thought might make a PERFECT evening gown to ring in the new year. What do you think? Continue reading
Junbug can be fun to pick up on FLF because they often have lovely gowns and 50L is a steal for their pretties. I popped over there very early AM while this dress was still out and snatched it up.
Now I just need somewhere to take it dancing. I’ve got a slight quibble as the drop sleeve on the shoulder intersects with the arm depending on my arm position, but I suppose for 50L it’s only a very slight quibble. Continue reading
I have been reviewing books for more than a year and got this crazy idea last night that I might try video blogging my reviews from Second Life. This is a review of Unnatural Habits by Kerry Greenwood. It comes out July 4th. You can also read the review on my book blog. The book I reviewed takes place in 1929, so I dressed the part.

Sophie is back from visiting Auntie Inventory JUST in time for the holidays. We’re looking forward to some lovely winter days together before she returns. We’re having our feast and planning on visiting lots of friends! We hope that your Thanksgiving, or THURSDAY as some call it, is an awesome day too! Continue reading
The uncertainties of life are manifest every day. Some uncertainties are harder than others. My sister has Stage IV lung cancer. But her future is still uncertain, it’s quite possible the chemo will kill her long before the cancer can. She’s been in the hospital for two weeks now as a mold has developed in her lungs, thanks to chemo bringing her white blood cell count down to zero. On Thursday, I learned she has developed VRE, a anti-biotic resistant bacteria similar but much more rare than MRSA, the OMG of countless House episodes. Of course, because when you are going to ER three times a day for 90 minute infusions of antibiotics, you develop anti-biotic resistant bacteria. I think it is time for her to eat a lot of dessert. Ice cream, apple pie, chocolate cake, brownies and coffee nips. Go for it!
VINTAGE FAIR is happening and I’m lounging in a new release from FISSION, who is still a mainstay of classic couture in my wardrobe. There aren’t a lot of retro fashion designers of consistent quality, Ingenue and Fission area always at the top of my list. Continue reading
The Arcade is opening at midnight and when that happens, many of you will feel like these adorable critters from Mutresse and Half-Deer. The Mutresse kitty cat is even scripted to furiously scratch at the door, “Let me in! Let me in!”
Meanwhile, Collabor88 is in its last week, so you can leisurely stroll in and pick up the pretties like this gorgeous dress from Zenith. Zenith also released coordinated purses, but who wears a purse lounging on a day bed. This one is from Mudhoney and is at The Arcade. The dress has a hud to change the shirt and bra that you can see under the dress. I added a bandana from katat0nik because it’s adorable.
Speaking of adorable. The Pure Poison shoes are at Collabor88 and can be customized to the nth degree. The chihuahua is from The Arcade (Half-Deer) and is named Toodles. My brother always had a Chihuahua and every one was named Toodles, Toodles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I have no idea why.
My budget was very small this month so I feel very lucky to get this lovely travel caravan from Dust Bunny on the third or fourth pull. I don’t remember exactly, but I felt very lucky. The lace awning makes a great place for a bit of outdoor living with a daybed and dining table.
Tomorrow is June and before you know it the Summer Solstice and hot sunny days of lazing by the lake and relaxing will be upon us. There is everything you could want for some great summer beach side vacations at The Arcade

Why do I procrastinate about doing a clean install? I know that when I crash just by turning or camming or razzing an item, it is time for a clean install, but I delay and try to muddle along, bring my draw distance down to 32 and crashing and getting fed up and closing out of SL for days. I put this outfit on last Sunday and only finally got around to shooting it – AFTER I did a clean install. It’s not like it that hard even.
I know why, though. I am always afraid the new version won’t work and the old version will be gone, lost forever. See my rant on that at “Linden Lab, Don’t Feel My Pain.”
I have also been decorating the beautiful Daylily Cottage from Scarlet Creative for Collabor88. Crashing when I rez things made it a slow process. I really should have done that clean install sooner.
