Fireworks and BBQ

There’s a lot of planning that goes in to putting on a perfect July 4 shindig so I had to get started early. How much food is too much? Who even knows?

I decided to give the grill a cleaning and a run through tonight. Stop judging me, some of that meat is for the neighbors. No really I’m very hospitable.

I practiced making drinks and sampling my own wares I have to say, these are delicious. I think I’m about ready for the big day tomorrow.

ChicChica had a FUN little group gift out for all you 4th of July types. I had to get one. SUPER cute.

All this getting ready for the big day has me completely worn out. Are you ready? What are your plans?

I picked up these amazingly comfy PRIDE sneaks from BLEICH and I recommend you run don’t walk to grab them for 50L if they are still there. Perfect, comfy shoes.

Bring on the 4th!

Open for Trouble

I found a new to me shopping opportunity while sifting through blogs last night to figure out where to shop. Seraphim opened “The Outlet – a Seraphim Infinity Event” about a week ago it looks like, and it’s just a 50% off room from designers you love and some you don’t know. I really loved this as it gave me an opportunity to pick up some deals, as well as try out a brand I don’t know.

I was glad to pick up cute hair from Wasabi Pills on a discount – I mean, SCORE but I also picked up a few things to try out new brands. I was excited about trying this brand Apple Blossom because their textures were new and fresh, and I felt really inspired by them. I was really disappointed though that these straps are completely wonky and stand a couple of inches ABOVE my shoulders. I was glad I just paid 75L for it – I will avoid this brand in the future. I don’t not recommend this one to pick up if you hop over there.

I pulled out some old bangles from Zaara that I used to adore and painted up my face with goodies from Alaska Metro. I feel like this is what our mothers meant by TOO MUCH MAKEUP don’t you? I don’t even care.

The hair clips are fun – but I don’t know if I ever figured out how to work them or just got lucky repeatedly clicking. Knowing me, it’s the latter.

Happy Monday girls. Let’s make it a great week!

Swim Harder

When I put on the gorgeous bikini from Zaara, I immediately wanted to take pictures on the beach.  I popped on over to The Trace Too and was immediately reminded of one of the reasons I stopped logging into Second Life. It seems to me once I put on my mesh body, hands, feet, head, hair, clothing, accessories, and a pose hud, I could not move. I took one picture and then spent about 2 hours trying to reposition the camera. I gave up and went back to my prim in the sky.

Bring On The New Year

I couldn’t decide what to wear for my New Year’s Eve. I wasn’t sure I was going to go out or not, you see. But it turned out my friend Putrid was out dancing while Oakley spun tunes and I couldn’t resist. Luckily I had put on “what if I go out” clothes before I logged out last time. Continue reading

Impervious to Cold

The season of cold impervious avatars has begun

Every holiday season I am amused by our avatar’s seeming imperviousness to cold. We rush about with open-toed shoes and barely there dresses in the snow and ice and not one of us feels a bit of cold. This gorgeous dress by Cynful for Collabor88 would be all covered up by a heavy coat in the real world.

The Age of Myth

The Age of MythWhile I don’t role play it is fun to dress up. I had a good excuse because I wanted to review Age of Myth, this book I read that I really loved. There were some outfits at The Arcade that were perfect so the timing was perfect.

Age of Myth is a fantasy novel, the first of five in a new series by Michael J. Sullivan. I reviewed this book on my blog HERE.

“In this world of numbness and information overload, the ability to feel is a rare gift indeed.”

“In this world of numbness and information overload, the ability to feel, my boy, is a rare gift indeed.”There is so much happening in Second Life right now that it’s sometimes overwhelming. Consider this single post which features a casual outfit at a local coffee shop. But underneath, out of site, there a lot happening. Here are the bullet points.

  • Monthly Events Collabor88 and Hairology
  • Quarterly Event The Arcade
  • Annual Events Shoetopia and Skin Fair
  • The New Realism: Slink Dynamic Hands with idle animations and poses

I am alive, and drunk on sunlight.

“I am alive, and drunk on sunlight.”I am loving the outfit released by Zaara for Collabor88 this month. The February C88 showcased folk designs and how appropriate that Zaara release something representative of her country’s traditional, and still current, fashions.

The Borg Loses in the End

This, to me, is the ultimately heroic trait of ordinary people; they say no to the tyrant and they calmly take the consequences of this resistance. Philip K. Dick

Yesterday, three million women and men marched in every state and on every continent in the world. Every continent, even Antarctica. In 51° below Kotzebue, Alaska, people marched. In sunshine and rain storms, desert heat and arctic cold, people gathered to resist. Of course, the naysayers mocked and dismissed. “Resistance is futile,” they quote The Borg, an implicit confession of corruption. They forget, the Borg is destroyed in the end.

Building dikes to hold back the tides of fear
