So hey! Vintage Fair is still going for another week, but I’m leaving today for a 2 week vacation, and won’t have access to a decent computer where I go. I feel it wouldn’t be right to show you crappy pictures of lovely things, so this is goodbye, for now. But please, please, if you haven’t already, go visit that awesome event, there are so many more things I wish I could have shown you!
You know what’s funny? I started putting together that outfit a few days ago, and the weather was bright and sunny and frankly a bit too hot for me out here. I guess I was hoping for a little rain to cool the air. Well it worked, I was awaken in the middle of the night by the sound of very heavy rain.

One hot bath and a pair of new heels from Garbaggio and I’m ready to take on the world today. I’m enamored of these Georgia peeptoe shoes – I’m always a sucker for a cute pair that shows off my pedicure. Continue reading →
The kind of hair day we want in SL is always possible, which is something I love. I’ve got four different kinds of rollered hair. I’ve got some old JBF hair from Elika or something. I’ve got up do’s and long wavy and various curls and bobs.
Some hair, however, begs for me to walk around the house naked, just luxuriating in it. Continue reading →
One of my favorite lines from any book is by Margaret Atwood. “I want all my hurts to be intentional.”
It’s a personal mantra. It’s two sided to me. It means I don’t want to unintentionally cause harm or sadness. Being a human person means you do in fact do that sometimes. Through your actions or decisions you might hurt another person, even someone you care about. The best you can do in that situation is apologize. You can’t always fix it, some times you can’t go back – or going back isn’t where fate is taking you. But you can be honest, and try to move forward with good intentions even if you can’t remove that thing that hurts.
Intentional hurts though are something reserved for people I am truly at odds with. It’s hard to sit here and think of an actual instance, but I’d venture that when under attack I’m not against returning fire – and returning fire in a harsh fashion. I think that’s fair too. It’d be more adult to walk away, refuse to engage. Sometimes I can be that person. But sometimes, just sometimes if I respond I know it will be with malice and spite. Continue reading →
Sometimes I feel more in love than others. I am invested so deeply that sometimes I forget the love and passion that drives the machine of a love affair – even when it’s a long term one. Continue reading →
I got so excited when I was asked to submit a weekly lingerie post. I adore lingerie and it gave me the perfect excuse to buy more, and to explore some new stores selling it.
You see, lingerie is not like other clothes. It’s special. Choosing lingerie is about how it makes me feel, rather than how it looks. It’s not like it gets seen by many people!
This piece is from a new store to me, HAS BEEN. Terrie Dreadlow’s designs have a hint of the fifties to them and the demo for the sweetness lingerie instantly transported me to a feeling of coy retro cuteness. The bodysuit is all mesh, and fit me perfectly straight out of the box. Don’t you just love when that happens.
It came with a HUD that offers a huge variety of colour options. You can customise the front panel, sides, bows and the ribbons that run down the length. Every colour and every texture are gorgeously detailed. Plus, it’s only 99L. There’s no excuse not to explore your inner bunny!
The shoes were also from HAS BEEN and included the same HUD with tons of options. These were in the lights pack. There is also a darks pack.
Lingerie doesn’t have to be all lace, frills and barely there. It just has to make me feel special. This set does that and so much more.

COLLABOR88 is only a day away, it’s so close you can hear the clicking of stilettos in the distance as the shoppers warm up for the swarm. It’s going to be a big one, it’s their birthday and that means one thing, LOTS of awesome.
I’m previewing a new ‘do from Magika and I strayed into her fun hombres for some color on this Friday-Eve.
Make your day beautiful girls!

I felt like doing some late night blogging although it’s not incredibly late for me. It’s been hot as hell outside and I figured it had been a while since I bought my avatar some new cute bikinis. I’ve ALWAYS been a stickler for cheap bikinis, I always told myself I would never pay over 50L for swimwear in SL. I broke that rule today.
First bikini is from SUKI called Sunny Bikini. It’s a cute Mesh bikini that is textured very well with a cute print on the bottoms.
Next bikini is from Mon Cheri called Rocker Babe. It’s not mesh but it has sculpted attachments like the bows and ties. It’s super cute and super sexy. Continue reading →
