The veggie tray, apple pie, salt and pepper shakers and waffle iron can all be found at The Arcade.
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! Continue reading →
I had a tremendous giggle when I saw the name of one of EXILE’S hairs for Collabor88 this month. Southern Shade might evoke images of willow treas, or Georgia pine cooling you down on a humid southern morning.
Or if you’re me, and your typist is a girl living in the south of the US immediately you come to think of all those terms that sound nice but just aren’t – most of the time anyway. Continue reading →
It’s important to freshen up your avatar look from time to time. We switch out our hair willy nilly but sometimes we can forget how nice it can be to update some of the basics – like eyes.
If you haven’t ever tried Banana Banshee eyes, Rose has been around for a while making eyes so she knows what she’s doing. While she doesn’t just make eyes, that’s what I’m talking about today.
I’m trying out her Soul 2 eyes fatpack. She’s got a nice range of blues, from gentle icy blues to children of the corn bright if that’s your thing. She also features pretty greens, browns and even a red for you about to be possessed for Halloween Times. She also features black sclera versions for all you folks who like to role play or just rock a completely different kind of look. I’m wearing her ice blue and I really like it, it’s a pretty but subtle blue and looks very natural. Continue reading →
I recently finished a book my sister gave me, “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. I really like one of the things Pausch said, “The size of your audience doesn’t matter. What’s important is that your audience is listening.” It’s interesting, I think, what draws people in. However, with events like Collabor88, they can not only boast about the size of their audience, but also that they audience listens (shops).
August is the anniversary month for Collabor88 and they always invite all the guests from the entire year for a blowout showcase. Collabor88 will continue until the 6th, so while you are waiting for an opening at The Arcade, don’t forget that there is an other event, a real extravaganza happening at the same time. I will be blogging more about the Arcade soon, but really could not pass up featuring this lovely Angelic dress from Blueberry. With the HUD, there were so many options that I sort of drifted into the meditative haze of changing the dress, the upper feathers, the lower feathers, and then changing them again and again and again. I might still be doing it, but someone knocked on my door. Continue reading →
I’m up early to make my Arcade lists and plans for completing those MUST HAVE items. Do you have your list ready to go? What are your faves this round? There’s so much to like, I’m going to go broke.
I’m wearing a few things that are must haves in my opinion,my lingerie is from Blueberry – gorgeous as always. My little dog is from Birdy – ADORABLE and my hair is from Exile. Don’t mind me, I just got up. Continue reading →
I like the old adage “When someone shows you how they feel, believe them.” I have probably spent far too many hours believing the words that didn’t match the actions in this life, and finally at my ripe old avatar age I’ve found a way to realize that this adage is more true than I ever imagined. Continue reading →
Dorothy Parker always knew exactly what to say and her wit sparkled. I love her quip about lingerie even more than I love this lingerie which is quite a lot.
It’s covered up by the sheer Reva cover-up from Zaara, though bits peek through. Just keeping the front page SFW. This was released at June’s Collabor88 so will be at the store now. The fairy lights are from Floorplan and can be found at Collabor88 for three more days. Continue reading →
I decided it is time to buckle up for Hair Fair and how better to do that than with the fabulously buckled dress from Zenith at Collabor88 this month. I added the incredible Bastet arm bands from Pixicat that were released at Arcade about 6 months ago and a pair of sunglasses from this month’s Baiastice releases for Collabor88. Continue reading →
I think it’s important to have various interests and activities in one’s life. Thanks to the Arcade and Collabor88 I am able to embrace lots of mine, and try new things like this hoverboard. It’s SO much fun, I may use it for travelling everywhere from now on! Continue reading →
Collabor88 opened today with a flourish, a crisp and clean flourish. Certainly the lovely Shiroi skin applier from Glam Affair for Lelutka Mesh Heads is a clean, crisp look for these hot summer days. So are the lovely stone and silver earrings (completely jewelry set) from La Gyo. I want to dress for the heat back home in Minnesota because I hit the road tomorrow for a trip back home to visit my sister and the rest of my family.
