Bathing Is Requisite

So there is an article rolling around the internet written by someone who alleges not to have bathed for a really long time. Thematically the article is trying to say that our western obsession with bathing is unfounded.

NO. This is lies. 

While you might not need to be one of those people who showers twice or three times a day, please don’t think that if you roll around 3-4 weeks unbathed that the rest of us don’t notice. WE NOTICE. For the love of God, wash. WE NOTICE.

There are people who own animals who don’t think their house smells like animals. There are people who live by rivers who don’t think that the outside smells like dank river. 

There are all untruths, brought to you by the fact that you have gone noseblind.

In my pixel world, I never have to worry about these things yet I do observe the appropriate rituals and customs – simply so that my mind is ready for the day. I like the preparation of getting ready to go out in to the world, pixel or not.  I’m worried about the person who wrote that article and how they’re going about in their world, unaware of the horror show they are inflicting on others.

I mean, the smell. My GOD the smell.

The Thames smells a bit though. Nothing to be done about that.

Happy Sunday girls.

GAZEBO

My husband and I have this long standing joke, when we can’t think of a word we just say GAZEBO.

“Can you hand me that long handled…..gazebo?”

“I am looking for my extra….gazebo…”

“It’s over there behind the red…gazebo….”

You get the idea. Continue reading

07/10/2018 – All the leaves are brown…

…and I’ve decided to wear brown too.

Every first Sunday of the month, a bunch of designers have some cool stuff out for a discounted price of 69l$. Find out everything you want to know about SL Syndicate Sundays here.
This round I’ve picked the cute cottage house from Funky Junk, pumpkins from QE Home and gorgeous nails from Dark Passions.

I love putting together outfits with bits and pieces in my inventory, digging up oldies but goodies, going shopping for the perfect piece to compliment the rest. Like those rings from Yummy that add a little something to my hands, making my nails pop. Or that cute little Blueberry skirt from an old Luxe Box combined with a fairly recent Tres Blah jacket and that elephand necklace from Bliensen + MaiTai…

Oh hai! Apparently there’s a trend on Flickr that consists of taking pictures sideways, or with an horizontal avatar. From what I understand the goal is to get one’s picture picked as group cover, then one snapshots said cover and posts it again on their Flickr. I find that last part highly ridiculous, but just like bloggers referring to designers as “sponsors”, I guess that’s how the world goes nowadays and you just have to go with the flow. I do miss simpler times, when one blogged just what they liked, when they liked it, and once in a while would get blogger copies and would be over the moon with them… oh well, I’ll just keep my old fart’s habits and hope people enjoy my ramblings. But just for today, just for the fun of it, here’s a horizontal picture :

Wasabi Pills At The Hair Fair

Hair Fair is one of Second Life’s oldest traditions – the oldest probably being something skeevy we won’t mention here. I can remember my earliest exposure to Hair Fair and I can even remember the hair I fell in love it.

Gogo blogged the hair, and I just knew I had to have it.  It was a wavy blonde, and it had a cute braid and it was adorable.  I ran straight over and bought it.

When I saw this release for Hair Fair from Wasabi Pills it reminded me SO MUCH of the original I loved (the original had the braid down the side and let’s face it, it was flexi SO NOT THIS PRETTY) I really really wanted to do a side by side. I thought it might be fun to take a look at the amazing progress our creators of hair have made over the past decade.

But then I realized I had deleted that hair.  141k in inventory and I’ve deleted the damn one I want. Nice. Continue reading

23/09/2018 – Good Hair Day

As Gidge told you earlier, Hair Fair is here!! If you needed an extra reason to go, here are a few :

  1. It’s for a good cause : every purchase has a 15 to 40% donation to Wigs For Kids.
  2. The sims are really easy to navigate : start at landing point, follow the path and you will walk by every store.
  3. Everything has been made so that it’s not lag fest : minimalist decor and scripts. I do however recommend you wear a full alpha and nothing else, and show friends only, to help keep everyone’s experience nice and smooth.
  4. If you’re a hair whore like me, you’ll have your fix of gorgeous hair!

What? Still not convinced? Take a look at just a few of the gorgeous hair that can be found there :

19/05/2018 – I can’t stand Paris

Anyone who’s actually been to Paris, I mean, really been there, spent time, will tell you that it’s not at all the romantic city people think it is. The smell is horrible, there’s dog poop everywhere, people are rude… Whenever I spend even just one day there, my hair gets super dirty, and I can’t breather properly. If you ever plan on visiting France, let me know, I’ll give you the name of a dozen other cities you’ll love, just, not Paris.

Someone on Plurk was saying the other day that they miss ETD. For those of you who weren’t around then, ETD (Elikapeka Tiramisu Designs) used to be a famous hair brand in SL, that disappeared for a while, and then the designer came back under a new brand, Elikatira. Well you know what? I think her hair now is just as good as it used to be, and the little number she pulled yesterday for Fifty Linden Fridays proves it. Janiah is a super cute hairstyle, that matches perfectly with my lovely Tres Blah dress.

13/05/2018 – Pink and teal make pretty

I am not feeling overly inspired to write anything today, but I wanted to show you a few gorgeous things that I found these past few weeks, at events, stores, or buried deep in my inventory. I’ll start with the hair. I’ve been in the Truth VIP group since the very beginning of the new concept, and some months I barely logged in, or if I did I was too busy with other things to really check what the gift was. So when I found Ginevra, last November’s gift, I just went wow. The super pretty glasses are free from Balaclava, they were the demo for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer. Make sure to check FaMESHed this month if you haven’t yet, the Tres Blah dress is yet another little wonder.

27/04/2018 – Being Uber cute part 1/2

Uber opened on the 25th, and I am sorry to say that my bank account didn’t like it at all. The theme this round is Biker Chic, and I will take 2 posts to show you some of the gorgeous things you can get there.

Tres Blah takes the theme to a very high level of cuteness with that dress/leather jacket combo. They come in a bunch of colours, all super pretty, and I just couldn’t decide, so I had to fatpack.

The muddy face and body, and the eye make-up are appliers from Izzie’s, available at Uber too, as well as the latest hair release by Truth, Panny, that is simply adorable.
