I Found Ice Cream

Over at Rainbow Reef – the best beach in SL – I discovered an Ice Cream truck today and quite frankly I couldn’t be ANY happier. I’m a glutton, I’m not even sorry. I’ll traverse the scariest of builds to eat new or pretty foods and frankly – this one is a pretty treat in a beautiful place. Double win.

I picked up a cute new bikini at the Saturday Sale this morning so I’m feeling pretty set for my Saturday. Grabbed this hair from MINA too.

I’ve got some gorgeous new makeup from RazzaNova from her Party Style Collection. Really gorgeous, rich colors for a night out or – a day at the beach. Whatever your pleasure.

If you feel like getting out of your house or off your platform – tomorrow is brunch at Rainbow Reef at 10 am SLT!

The Return of Blueblood

My beloved cousin Ghanima Uriza messaged me the other day after a long absence. She has started to dip her toe into the world of mesh and I guess I had not realized how long she’d been gone – the pixel world has changed so much since the last time we were able to chat.

She’s back at work creating her beautifully hand-painted textures that were the HALLMARK of Blueblood back in the heyday. I am so excited to get to share a little something she’s been working on.

It was so lovely to chat with her, to talk about our lives and how we are both in such a different place how with regards to how we embrace Grid Life. Neither of us are willing to allow it to run us anymore, instead we are excited to get to participate in the things we love on our own terms. For me it’s blogging, for her it’s creating.

I have to say, I’m excited to have another Uriza cousin back on the grid. We’re a rare breed.

Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.”

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.” Mania Khan must know swans, they do love the quiet, the lee side of an island lake, where the wind does not ruffle the water. I thought of that quote when I saw the {anc.} swans at The Arcade and decided to rez them on a quiet eddy of water with some flowers (also from anc) and trees from HPMD.

Got My Hucci On

So I had some time to myself after feeding my kitties and doing the usual housework and I thought SELF! You need to go out! So I dug in my closet and found some perfect clubbing clothes from House of Hucci.

It was Fetish Night and I guess my fetish is….cute clothes. Continue reading

The Right Girl and the Girl Who Waited

There is the Girl Who Waited who is Amelia Pond. She waited for his return, and when he did great adventures and wonder happened throughout her life. But she was spun along through her own adventures, like a rudderless boat sometimes. She wasn’t the captain, yet she was a willing participant in the chaos of adventure she was able to experience. (I won’t embrace the spoilers of the end of her adventures, as we know it’s against the rules – SPOILERS!)

But there’s another kind of girl and she’s the kind who won’t wait for anybody. Continue reading

a balloon with a broken string

“I'd be smiling and chatting away, and my mind would be floating around somewhere else, like a balloon with a broken string.”

“I’d be smiling and chatting away, and my mind would be floating around somewhere else, like a balloon with a broken string.”
                                       ― Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

I wanted to be sure to choose the perfect lingerie for this new sheer tunic Zaara released at Collabor88. I had this great set from Luxuria for Fifty Linden Friday. It’s still available, just not 50 lindens. I love the colors and thought it a perfect set for my new tunic. It applies to both Maitreya and Slink bodies, so it’s very flexible.
“I'd be smiling and chatting away, and my mind would be floating around somewhere else, like a balloon with a broken string.”

Black Bantam, a new to me label, released this lovely Autumn Dreams Balloon Chair, a fantasy piece that I took for a ride on the Linden Ocean.  Stacey Oller is the designer for Black Bantam and may be more familiar to folks under her fashion label Pink Acid. The chair contains several poses and animations for men and women (and kids) and comes in blue as well.

Roses, Brocade and Lace @ Collabor88

Raw Pics from SL - FS won't save to disk

Collabor88 is full of the beautiful and macabre this month. I am so very much in love with the Vanity Hair contributions especially as it works so well with the headpiece from Zenith. I imagine   it would also work well with hats and other hair accessories.

Raw Pics from SL - FS won't save to disk
Zenith’s brocade corset and lace skirt for Collabor88 is a perfect composition of the Gothic aesthetic, corsets, ribbons and lace in a bold and sexy form that contours and highlights the body.

That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies

150214_003

I wore the Vivianne dress from Lassitude & Ennui (at Collabor88) when I DJ’ed at The Velvet’s Valentine’s Day party. It’s such a romantic dress with it’s froth of lace at the hem. One of my favorite songs I played for the party was “That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies” by Emily West. I hope you will play the YouTube® visit. 

I heard it happens.
It’s never happened to me.

I stare by the window,
If he’s there, it’s only just a dream
Just a dream.

Birds in the sky will be singing the song.
The sun will be shining when his car pulls up.

Oh, I long for the day and the way it should be.
Expected temptations are waiting for me.

Cause that’s how the boy gets the girl in the movies.
Kisses that make her the star of the show.
He’ll buy you roses and make you feel pretty.
Hold the umbrella when he walks you home.

It’s Hollywood. It’s heaven.
It’s everything perfect above.
When a girl falls in love.
