Sanura Snowpaw made a heartfelt plea for help yesterday, one that was difficult for her to do because most of the time, she is the one answering the pleas of others. It is always hard for the givers to ask for help. But she is not asking for herself, not really, she is asking for her dog Kassie who needs an expensive surgery.
Of course, she is doing her part, too, putting everything in her store Somnia on sale at half price in hopes that folks who like her clothes will come and stock up, taking home twice as much and injecting some much-needed lindens to help take care of her dog. Since she always sells her items with a texture change hud with 8 colors, that is 90 lindens for 8 colors of this sweater and 90 lindens for 8 colors of this skirt. Seriously, even if you do not care about the dog, you should spend, spend, spend just to stock up at half off on wardrobe basics. Since she makes appliers, you can also get all your layering basics too. Continue reading →
I hadn’t ever heard of The Trace Too until Cajsa linked to Ziki Quest’s blog. I feel a bit sad that I’ve probably missed out on something all this time, and now it will be leaving us. I am sadder, however, that it seems another SLer is struggling with health issues.
I don’t know the person who’s sim this is, nor the people doing a little fundraiser. But what I do know is what it’s like to feel helpless while someone you care about is ill across the globe, to watch and worry about the worst, and how it feels when the worst happens. All of that I’ve got in spades. So I went over to shoot some pics and promote their effort to remember their friend.
In SL sometimes that’s the best we can do for our friends, and I’m glad to support that. Continue reading →
My grandmother was obsessed with dishes, and setting a lovely table. She had dishes for sandwiches and soup. She had dishes for this party, and that party. She had no less than five full sets of dishes when she died, and twice that of small sets she’d bought for entertaining. Continue reading →
I picked up this gorgeous jacket at Vintage and Cool – a vintage clothing fair held last year. I loved the beautiful lace and leather jacket and the lovely details, but had not found the opportunity to wear it – but when I put together this outfit focusing on some of the wonderful finds at My Slink Obsession, I remembered it and pulled it out of the closet. The lovely nail polish is from Stellar at My Slink Obsession. The outfit really begins with the Somnia Cranial Trim top which was released today at My Slink Obsession. As with everything made by Sanura Snowplow, the quality is exquisite. The hand drawn textures in the bodice are beautiful and, by the way, are the reason I chose the jacket. The last picture in this post has a close up that lets you see how well the straps on the shoulders are done. That is where you can see the difference between the good and the excellent. Somnia is excellent. The only reason I do not wear it more often is she works with a much softer color palette than what I gravitate towards – for me, I generally go for prints and strong, bright, saturated colors. But coral? Well, coral is one of my favorite colors and is one of the universal colors that look good with every skin type.
Despite my current space restraints I couldn’t resist installing the new bar from Trompe Loeil in my house. I needed “something” in this room and I’ve found it. A full service bar that works from BOTH sides – PERFECT! Continue reading →
The 8f8 villa and decor from The Arcade is a perfect relaxing spot on my way to my final destination. I stopped in to refresh myself from my travels and to enjoy Cajsa’s hospitality. Continue reading →
Skin Fair is coming and some of your favorites are going to be out in force with new releases. I’ve got a new face from Belleza with very subtle make ups for you to check out today. TESS isn’t a plain Jane like Tess of the D’urbervilles always makes me think of, but she definitely has a Nastasia Kinski pout.
“I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how serious you approach your whole life.” ~ Martha Stewart
Cookies are a valid breakfast. I decided this morning that only cookies would do, and at the same time I realized there are “breakfast cookies” and “diet cookies” and this really means that cookies are now officially a good for you food, right? I mean, these people who market these products wouldn’t lie to us, correct? For that reason I’m pursuing a cookie filled breakfast. If loving cookies is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

I’m excited to be reveling in winter in SL while having lovely days in RL. Yay for living in a warmer part of the country. I am not sure what the new year holds, a lot of people are making resolutions. Do you make them? I sometimes feel like resolutions are just attention whoring “Look at me look at me!” but maybe they’re genuine attempts at making positive changes. It’s definitely not for me to say!
I’m excited a new year is coming, and changes are ahead. I hope you are too.
I should’ve worn gloves. Brrrr.

Well now you know. Once we’re doing making blog posts, all bloggers go into storage for the rest of the day, kept neat inside bell jars until we’re needed again. I wasn’t supposed to tell you but now I’ve let it out. I’m a rebel. Continue reading →
