Seeking Validation

Everyone has their own method for naming their products in Second Life. I tend to go to the WORD OF THE DAY from OXFORD or WEBSTER. Sometimes folks on PLURK will head over there and say “HELP ME NAME THIS PRODUCT.” That happened on the 29th, as I sat in McDonalds. Lindsey Warwick sent up the call for help naming a new pair of shoes.

I was sitting in McDonalds. I took a look at my receipt, and answered her with the first word I saw. VALIDATION. YAY ME SHE LIKED IT! Continue reading

The Heat is On

140925_005

Baiastice turns on the heat with these too hot to handle caged bra top and colorful belted miniskirt. In several colors and solids, it’s heating up the joint at Collablor88.

The heat is on, on the street
Inside your head, on every beat
And the beat’s so loud, deep inside
The pressure’s high, just to stay alive
‘Cause the heat is on

A Bloggers Work Is Never Done

I am decorating my house which is taking SO MUCH TIME because I want it to be perfect. I don’t want to move again until next year. I did the kitchen, mostly, and now I’m doing the entryway. But I can’t spend all of my time decorating, I need to blog and shop and take pictures I really do. Continue reading

Remembrance

140905_007

 

Versus Magazine did a lovely tribute to Squinternet Larnia that was released on the 4th, the one-year anniversary of her death. Tania Tebaldi who wrote and managed Squinternet’s blog for her wrote an essay that showed a different perspective on Squinternet than the one I knew. That’s one of the reasons people come together to mourn their loved ones – because we all know people through different lenses and in sharing our grief, we all get a fuller, rounder perception of the person.

If Loving Tres Blah Is Wrong…

…I don’t want to be right.

No one reaches into my head quite like Tres Blah’s ARCADE ITEMS to describe what I’d like to have exist in all of my lives.  Calm, beautiful pieces with style and taste, that reflect the sort of gorgeous things I would choose surround myself with.

Thus, in my Second LIfe, I do. Continue reading

LET ME LOVE YOU

I am suffering from a late arrival home but not suffering so much I couldn’t squeeze my new kitty from THE ARCADE. Fat kitties and fat babies are two of my favorite things. Aisling released a host of fat kitties to hold or to set about and be your sweet companions, for THE ARCADE.

I love that you get a little HUD to change their eye color. That’s such a sweet little touch!

And now I’m going to crawl to the RL and anxiously await sleep tonight.

See you later my pretties!

House Hunting

0821_005

I have been thinking about moving, downsizing from my lovely, but large, 5th Avenue townhouse and have been on the lookout for something marvelous. I think I found it at Collabor88 this month. I mean look at that red door! We need more red doors in our lives.

This month’s Collabor88 is inspired by the Odyssey and I am loving the many interpretations that designers are coming up with. I am fondest of those that are less literal – like this mini-dress from Tres Blah. It was a bit short for my taste so I added some leggings from Maitreya to avoid flashing my hoo-hah around.

So this carriage house from Trompe Loeil appeals to me as a new home. The only problem is that I will have to move. I hate moving – not as much in SL as in RL – but I still like to stay in one spot. However, I am pretty sure I will sign a lease on this place and move in shortly. I love carriage house apartments. When I was in college, I had a friend who rented a carriage house. It was gorgeous inside and the rent was reasonable, best of all, though, it was on an estate – so there were these magnificent grounds that he was able to use – so long as he scheduled with the owners. Lucky guy!

Strength and Honor

I covet things I see released, in fierce ways sometimes. These earrings from Bliensen + Maitai for instance were a must have the moment she plurked them.

The earrings are available at We <3 Roleplay event. The coordinating jewelry is available at…….I forget. Now I have to blog it again so I can say the name. Drat. OH WELL THE HARDSHIPS I ENDURE. #Secondlifebloggerproblems.

Yes, I love these earrings.
