Magical Forests and Comfortable Boots

I decided to take a hike for my Saturday afternoon activity. CAN YOU BELIEVE that in an inventory of ALMOST 140k items I don’t own one single item called “hiking boots”?  I, like you dear reader, am incredulous of this fact yet here we are. I didn’t own a pair and since I was off on vacation and CLEARLY can’t just teleport to a shop to pick up a pair I had to make due with what I had in my suitcase inventory.

Luckily I had JUST thing thing from ISON – perfectly suited to protect my feet from nymphs or sprites or bugs or whatever it was that is currently inhabiting this place I’m staying for the weekend. Continue reading

Baby You Can Drive My Car – to Hair Fair

I like the accoutrement that completes my SL, little touches here and there. I’ve just added a BIG touch – a BIG honking car. I’ve always been a fan of cars in my SL – my avatar has places to go, she can’t be expected to bike and scooter everywhere can she? She’s American – so she LIKES a big car. This new beast from HAN fit the bill and there’s room in the back for a car seat should I ever bring the baby back from Auntie Inventory. I could pile all sorts of friends in this beast! You can pick one up, or another model, if you need a new car, or just want one HERE. After all NEED is rarely the right word around here. Continue reading

Sunday Funday

I’m playing with beautiful windlights today. I’m not much of a collector of windlights, or creator of them either. I’m a LAZY windlight user. But my friend Kavar posted this one a while back and I had to get around to picking it up. I actually just had to go look it up for the link and see a couple more I’m going to need.

Hop over here for some new windlight looks for your shoots. Continue reading

Stupid Little Dogs

I am not a dog person. This is pretty well known. I kind of DISLIKE dogs. Not the actual dogs. The idea of dogs. I’ve actually known some dogs in this world that I liked quite well. I even loved one or two.  But no, in general, I am not into dogs.

My grandparents however, had a set of old lady friends, “The Beason Girls” they were called, and they were sisters in law whose husbands had died. They loved little dogs. They were the sort of ladies who always had on gloves and a hat, and their shoes and purse matched. They brought their little dogs with them wherever they went.

When I was young, I was always curious about their dogs, they seemed to go through a LOT of dogs. Later I learned, that this was due to vacationing in Florida, along a freshwater canal. If you ever lived in Florida, you know that sending little dogs outdoors in some areas is akin to chumming for alligators. Thus, the Beason Girls had a lot of new little dogs.

I would ask my grandfather what types of dog, their dogs where, and he’d invariably say “Oh some stupid little dog.” And when they were arriving he’d wonder, “I wonder what stupid little dog they got this time?”

So when I saw this be-sweatered stupid little dog at The Mens Department from BIRDY well, you know it had to be mine.

Because – I can only HOPE to ever be as glamorous as The Beason Girls.

Intergalactic …Planetary…Planetary…Intergalatic

I have to commend COLLABOR88. They resisted the temptation and didn’t drive the grid mad with pink hearts even though February is traditionally pink heart overload in SL. I love the pink hearts, don’t get me wrong. But when even I begin to find it tiresome, you know it’s being over done for sure.

I love the hair pin that is the solar system, from UFO. They have some of the cutest packaging on the grid.

I am also trying out three new things today.

1. Mia Snow released a new skin – for 1L as an intro to a new skin line. It’s very pretty. And hey 1L.  Mia was super sweet and has named her skin with the brand MIA14  to help you keep your inventory straight – I think that’s great. Very thoughtful!

2. It didn’t come with eyebrows – or not discernible ones. My friend Lourdes directed me to Soiree on MP and I demo’d all of their tattoo layer brows before settling on Viviane. I have to say I liked them ALL but they weren’t quite GIDGE.

3. I am also finally dorking around with the MonCheri mesh eyelashes Cajsa got me. They’re pretty cool. I fit these to work with style 2 – I thought 1 and 3 were more dramatic and overwrought than I was looking for.  You can choose from various colors, tipped lashes etc for a lot of variety plus one that’s tintable.  You can select upper only, bottom only or both.Nifty.

LaRoo released an adorabe set of heels for us girls who need to make sure we’re always ready to stab your eye out with our shoes.  As always they come in a myriad of colors with tons and tons of pedicures for your cute little toes!

There wasn’t a color match avail for this MIASNOW skin however, I dorked around and got it matched really easily on my own. YAY ME!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Barrier Methods

If there is anything you learn growing up in the land of the ice and snow, it’s that you need to stay dry and keep the wet cold off of you. Layers, and the right ones are the key. You’ll get cold, but you won’t be TOO miserable by the time you get home to peel off  your frozen outerwear and warm back up.

Being warm is a bugaboo for me. As a child, we had a house with out insulation. After the blizzard hit, we spent many nights sleeping in every item of clothing we owned, on the floor in front of the fireplace.

So, I won’t be cold. Not ever, if I can help it. Continue reading

Sail Away, Ladies!

Summer fashions often feature the crisp red, white and blues of nautical fashion.  U.F.O.’s gorgeous little top for Collabor88 put me in mind of that with its white stripes. The top comes with a HUD allowing the wearer to choose an array of colors for the straps and so of course I chose red. U.F.O. also made matching skirts in several shades of denim, each with a print option with lips all over it.  I think the outfit is adorable, which is why it was worth the trouble it took to get it to fit.

I had one difficulty with this outfit in that I had to do a lot more than minor tweaks to my shapet. I had to significantly reduce my body fat and shoulder width, all trying to reduce the size of my arms so they fit the sleeves. I don’t mind adjusting a shape a little for a brand, though. I simply save a copy with the brand name, so I will have it on hand the next time I wear something from them. So now I have a new Cajsa UFO shape tucked away in my shape folder.  Continue reading

Collabor88 Drops In For Dinner

I had just picked up this adorable manicure from Marketplace made by Alicia Chenaux when I realized OMG COLLABOR88! MUST SHOP!

After wading through the crowds of people I think I am pretty happy, after all, the 90s themed pieces released are fun and kicky, alluding to that time before greasy hair and flannel took ahold of us.

So many boxes came home with me, it was nearly tragic. Continue reading

It's Snowing at Baffle

jan04_003

I dressed up for a nice sunny day in this top from u.f.o. and popped over the Baffle beach and was surprised to see that snow had come to Baffle. I would have rushed off to a more comfortable climate for my open-toed Lizettes from Kalnins, but I saw footprints of someone walking barefoot. I had to hang around to see who this intrepid weather warrior was and maybe catch some hot guy running from the sauna to the sea.
