So HAIR FAIR 2015 is going to be kicking off in TWO DAYS! That’s RIGHT TWO DAYS OMG ARE YOU READY?!! This is the big one, the one annual event that curls my toes and melts my butter. This is the one. Ok wait, Shoe Fair does too. Ok THIS IS ONE OF TWO….ok wait…
Nevermind. You get the point. One of the great things I personally love in SL is the easy with which we can style our hair, in various styles of the same shade or simply be ALL OVER THE PLACE – whatever suits our fancy. Hair Fair is a cornucopia of opportunity to be creative with our look and a portion of EVERY purchase this year goes to WIGS for KIDS which is a great organization.
So what’s the BEST way to get ready? 1. Join the Demo group. Events can be a nightmare to shop when they’re jammed and being part of the demo group lets you try on EVERYTHING before you go, so you can make your shopping list after having properly tried everything on. Demos will start flowing into this group TOMORROW! Get in! Continue reading →
So there is this movie I LOVE that you haven’t seen. I saw it in Kansas City, at a random mall theater when I was 20. You see, I had traveled there to attend the Drum Corps International world championship, with a group of friends – most of whom were 21. What this meant was that when night fell after the event, part of us went to the bars, and part of us wondered wtf we were supposed to DO for the rest of the evening.
We wandered into a local mall and walked int the first movie that was playing. It was called THE BIG BLUE. It’s a story about a man who is more than a man, or perhaps less. It’s about friendship, and love, and jealousy, and the complexity of being part of the world where sometimes things don’t make sense. It makes me cry, and it’s beautiful. Continue reading →

Good Morning girls. I’ve decided not to do Monday today after all. There’s too much shopping to do, my house is a wreck with clothes strewn everywhere and honestly, I should organize my make up I think. Instead I’ve made blender drinks and hit the ocean. I cannot possibly be expected to adult today. It’s out of the question.
I bought a new rafts for chilling in the water from What Next (new to me) and that’s my plan for today.
I love blue drinks, did you know that? I’m OBSESSED with them. I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to blue drinks. You can go see it if you look me up, I’m Gidgery on Pinterest. But if you don’t that’s cool too. Again, today I’m getting baked in the sun and just waiting for the burn. I’ll take the burn. I welcome it. Continue reading →
Living in the south in RL I appreciate the value of cooking out, we’re all about it down here. Now BBQ in the south isn’t the same as grilling, which is what I’m doing above. But when I lived up north it was the same. Regardless of what you call it, meat cooked over fire is delicious. Continue reading →
Some of the lovely things presented at Penumbra fashion week this time were bridal gowns. I’m not a big fan usually, so I was intrigued though to see something very understated and elegant from Ever An’ Angel for Penumbra and had to put it on. When I was newer in SL, my friends and I would often put on wedding dresses and run around the grid being mad and silly. This gown seemed to deserve an elegant backdrop. I think I found the perfect place for the SL wedding I won’t have.
It doesn’t have a lot of seating for guests but that’s ok. I might actually bring Gidge back over here for tea and cakes when she’s done working – it’s rather lovely in it’s amazing white wash of light.
There is even a fairytale-like carriage to bring me to the ceremony. Yes, this is a perfect spot.
I’m having a lazy Sunday morning here in SL. I’ve been tied up in the RL and poor Gidge has been wearing the same shoes for a week. This is almost a tragedy except that they are adorable shoes from House of Hucci at this month’s Collabor88 and therefore, tragedy is averted. Continue reading →
Penumbra fashion week continues and today I’m sharing a gorgeous slinky gown that is perfect. I hadn’t done a proper fashion blogger standing around with random objects shoot for a while, so I felt like this was a good day for that. Continue reading →
I’ve probably bought more bikinis than anything else in SL and let’s face it, there’s a reason. Living an idyllic waterside life is something a lot of us don’t have, and even when we aren’t ocean front as I am at this time, we usually have a pool in SL or a friend does. Pool parties, beach parties and the like are a staple food of social time. Consequently the item I’ve most often rushed out to find a “new” one of is a bikini. Continue reading →
