I don’t get the smoking in SL. I’m a smoker in RL (well not at the moment for baby bump reasons) but I never got the appeal for cigarettes in SL. My avatar is a better version of me, smoother skin, finer features, perkier boobs… I can play with piercings and tattoos at times because, unlike in real life, they can be removed quickly and painlessly, and obviously she’s a non-smoker. But when I unpacked this cigarette with mouthpiece from Dreamcatcher I knew I just had to show you. It comes with poses but I used another pose pack, also from Vintage Fair, that’s called Moonlight and Martinis, and includes a cigarette too, as well as a glass of… Martini! As usual, you’ll find all the credits after the pictures!

Guess what? I put together another very cool look, with the last of my FaMESHed gifts. Pyjamas, socks, earrings and necklace are free from the event. I promise, in a few days I’ll also show you things one actually has to pay for. In the meantime, let me enjoy the beauty of my l$ balance not dropping down for a couple more hours.
The very cute hair, Jacica, is the latest group gift from Truth. Seriously, if you haven’t joined yet, what are you waiting for? The monthly gift is always a complete fat pack, with styling HUD and all the options. The value is incredible, and all for just a one time fee of 350l$, barely the price of one colour pack!
When I first heard and then read about the Donna Flora event, I cried, I really did. I don’t do it often, but it really hit me. I cried a little again, when I realized I missed the cutoff date for applications for designers.
So I shopped instead.
I have never had the opportunity to talk with Squinternet. I’d sometimes see her setting up vendors in the shop, or out and about at events. I do however know her store line personally, as I have acquired many pieces from it over the years.
Some of you may know me, or of me, some of you may not, but one thing that can be universally seen in many of my posts is my love of colour. I also love period and retro styles. Donna Flora was one of those places I could go, get a Purple/Orange/Red patterned dress, grab gold, like real looking gold jewelry(so hard to find) and come out not looking like a clashy mess.
I was going to do this super complicated post with this dress, as I really loved the colours. I figured I could do all sorts of things. I can make a magical half dragon, half human princess who hoards jewels.
I went off and did my daily things, shopped a wee bit, got so many compliments on this simple styling, that I said, hey, why not just blog it this way, people seem to think it works. What probably threw me off was the normality of it.
If ever I do become a magical dragon/human half-breed jewel hoarding princess, I will let you know.
When I was a kid, the 4th of July meant a huge neighborhood picnic and desserts that were only trotted out once a year for this very special occasion. It’s a comforting memory, probably idealized, of a time and place where everything was easy, and special and for one day none of the neighbors were fighting only enjoying Marian Davis’s angel food cake with berries, and pies and cookies made by other neighbors.
It was perfect and peaceful…..at least when you were six.
Sometimes you meet people, that every time you speak to them, they make you feel comfortable and happy, and even if you don’t spend a lot of time with them, every interaction makes you wonder why you don’t.
One of those people for me, is Samara Barzane.
Thanks Sam, you made my day.
STATUS POSES group is a 50L fee but members get free gifts all year. I’m like AMEX, Membership has it’s privileges.
I was really happy to see Rhapzody Wilde back in action, after months of silence. I’ve got this notecard from Mynerva group and thought ( well…I might have said it LOUD ) “Hang on…Mynerva?!?! Woohoo!”. So yeah, she’s back with great group gifts, a delicious taste of her new skin line that will be released soon and, obviously, I can’t wait!!!
Here’s Milena, one of Mynerva group gifts which will be available for a limited time: it comes in porcelain and latte (with freckles) tones and with dark and light makeup.
I love it *_*
While hanging around the store and enjoying the skin, I received a notecard from [Sheep Door] announcing that, in order to celebrate their anniversary, they put out one colour of their new release – a super cute school uniform in both female and male versions – on the lucky boards, so I had to teleport over and have a look. The shop was, and still is, very crowded, everyone was there to stalk the lucky boards, so I decided to stay a few minutes and wait for my letter to show up and, in case I got tired of waiting, I would have bought the outfit. Yes, in one way or another, I would have got that school uniform because it’s one of the cutest uniforms I’ve ever seen.
At some point the O showed up and I got the prize. Yay! 😀
