Uptown Girl

I headed out to the city today to do a little shopping and maybe grab a bite somewhere. How’s your Saturday?

While I do have a host of vehicles I love to drive around, nothing beats the subway for getting around when you’re in a big metro area. And in my pixel life, no one is pooping on the floor during my ride so that’s a plus!!

I’m hitting the town in this adorable new headband from SparkleSkye for the Saturday sale. It comes in vivid or pastels and it’s really just too cute to pass up. I hope you hop over there to get it.

Conversation Hearts

I have a deeply etched love for creators who tell you what the free gift is that they’re giving away at events. Today I’m celebrating three of these champions from Shop & Hop who pulled me in with their cute offering.

Why does it matter so much what your free gift is? Well, technically it doesn’t. But I don’t want to pick up a bunch of random stuff, honestly. I look at free gifts as a chance to check out your work for free, and I do go back and patronize those folks whose work I like. No one owes me a free gift, and I do truly appreciate them. But those champs who show what the items are – well you’re the true MVP folks.

These conversation heart jeans are a great example. While I was wandering through this booth, I saw them and my first thought was “Man, I wish those were the free gift!” and holy shit they were!

Are the seams perfect down the side? NO. It was FREE I don’t really care that they don’t dork around with the texture to match it up in this instance. The waist and the button, fly etc look fine and honestly it’s conversation heart jeans – so cute. I’m not too precious to sweat the seam on this.

My sweater is a little fuzzy but I like to think that’s because it’s cashmere. Right?

Free shoes, shirt and pants courtesy of find folks at Shop & Hop. I need to finish my run through it tomorrow to see what other goodies can be found!

Back to Exploring

I heard there was a new place to check out for wine and treats and had to make my way over there. When I landed, I was a little perplexed that the only way down was via skylift. I wasn’t really dressed for it, but I did have panties on so no roaming werewolves were getting a show and I decided to just go for it and see what happened.

It’s a really adorable little village, and I was able to pick some things up while I was there. Now you might see that alpha collision with the window and my hair. There are people who want to act like that is some sort of photo catastrophe. You know what that is? That’s what it looks like in SL. This will be your experience too most likely and you aren’t going to die because of it. I suppose if you have some photoshop foo and you wanna try to fix it well that’s cool and good for you, but I don’t and I don’t think it’s wrong to show things on the grid the way you are going to experience them.

This rant brought to you by memories of someone who once ranted at me about a photo that had alpha halos.

Other parts of this build were also beautiful, although strange when coupled with the city build. I guess I need to maybe read what it’s supposed to be or something. Maybe.

I don’t know. I got some wine, that was really my goal. Now – time to get back to the skylift!!
