06/06/2018 – Vintage Fair – Part 2

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!

Last Day of Vacation Blues

I ordered room service last night and fell asleep without eating it. Nice, right? Luckily my all inclusive resort includes meals brought in, so I know there will be something waiting for me downstairs. I’ve missed breakfast though. This rainy weather just tells me to sleep and sleep, so I did.

Yes, it’s definitely lunch time.

I wonder how many people they think are here? Anyone want to come help me eat all this?

It’s a perfect day to relax and do a lot of nothing. I’ve got a good book and some delicious treats. I might even get some post cards sent out – like a proper vacationing adult might.  Continue reading

25/04/2018 – I like to mauve it.

I know, I know, this is probably the worst pun title ever, in the history of blogging. I should probably go back to just a date and be done with it. But you know what? It made me smile. Maybe it will make you smile too.

I‘ll Burn That Bridge When I Come to It

I'll burn that bridge when I cross it.

The Secret Store released a luscious skirt and top at Collabor88 in a wide range of colors. Fashions have become increasingly risque, with transparent fabrics and laces over opaque pieces that would have been lingerie a decade ago. It is one of those fashions that require discernment on the part of designers as it can easily veer toward overexposure and bad taste. In the sure and certain hands of Maylee Oh, though, it is on trend without crossing that line into tacky. How does she avoid the pitfalls? The waist is high enough to cover the navel and the cut of the legs are not too “cheeky.” The bra top is not so skimpy that there is any risk of nip slips and other exposure. This outfit reveals without exposing.

You Like My Loving Machine

It’s another day of exploring at Backdrop City for me. I have found no less than five new creators I need to support with my $$ and I’ll be going shopping soon. If you’re like me, you like to own a lot of backdrops to set up fun scenes for blogging the creations of our world. Continue reading

A Chill Touches the Air

The day comes every season when you awake and realize the chill has crept into your house. That’s a pet peeve of mine, being cold in my own house is unacceptable.

I need to get up and moving – I need to grocery shop for the big meal. I still don’t have a headcount – who’s coming over anyway? Digital people are terrible with their RSVPs I swear.  Continue reading

We Say POP

Where this pixel girl hails from we say POP. Pop means any carbonated drink. We do enjoy it, and “Could I get a pop or a diet pop” is a common conversation piece around those parts. I saw this pose prop at REWIND and while I’m not normally MUCH of pose prop purchaser (that’s Cajsa) I have to admit, this once caught my fancy. Continue reading

If I Waited

The Great Gatsby declared that No Sir, the right girl wouldn’t wait at all. She’d move on, it seems. She wouldn’t wait for your dumb ass to catch up with her, or get in sync. She’d never wait for someone who didn’t pull into her lane and come along.

There may be wisdom in that, but there’s heartbreak too. Gatsby then spends his life chasing Daisy and we all know where that lead him.

Personally I did end up having to wait a few days for my typist to show back up but then I was put in mind to wonder what else I’ve been waiting on. Beginnings or endings? Which is it?

It doesn’t matter, because time continues to roll and I’m going with it, it seems.

I’m decked out in some goodies you can still pick up at Collabor88 this month, which is perfect because you need them and this event is, as always, chocked full of goodness. But don’t wait on this one.

After all, the right girl wouldn’t wait for anyone.
