Yoga and Coffee

New Year New Me continues to resonate thanks to Collabor88 this month. Today I’m going to stretch and bend my mesh to some Yoga thanks to this amazingly cute bag from LaGyo. I’m going to be comfy in these top and bottom set from House of Hucci that’s sexy and functional for some serious inner peace.

What I need to do though is burrow a tunnel over to the studio. Even though it’s just a short land bridge across the islands to where Cajsa built our work out gym, it’s gonna be a cold run.

Two VERY cute items to pick up this month at Collabor88 for you gym rats are – first this bracelet also from LaGyo – a close up.

Perfect for the gymrat you love, even if it's yourself!

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.

Free, unrestrained and unhindered.

“the things in our control are by nature free, unhindered, and unobstructed"

Epictetus wrote in the Enchiridion, “The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained, unhindered.” We control our own actions, words, opinions, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we want. If we stick to what we control, he suggests, we are free of restraint. It is when we try to influence the things outside our control that we are trapped. It’s good advice. The difficulty is figuring out what we can control.

That’s been on my mind a lot. There’s a lot I don’t like happening, but what can I control? I can choose despair or resistance, that’s up to me. I need to focus on what I can do, not what I wish would happen. So even though I feel like kicking more than an exercise bag, I will instead focus my mind and my heart on resisting despair.

The World Is Yours

I had a brief bout with homelessness yesterday. Funny, in my early days of SL – suddenly not having my own space would have made me feel panicked – even unsafe. But yesterday I thought “Eh, this’ll sort” and went wandering. I found my way over to Amatorum and I hadn’t visited it’s new incarnation, I’m rather delighted at how lovely it is again. It’s a little bloggers dream in terms of vignettes for shooting pictures. Continue reading

It’s The Little Things Which Irritate

I have no reason for complaint today. I’ve got a beautiful new vanity set from SOY at Collabor88, amazing new jewelry, hair and dress from Collabor88 and really this pixel girl has no reason for for annoyance.

The world is my oyster, the world is my delicious sandwich made to order.

Yet, my annoyance today slithers into my sights from a flickr group from which I got a flickr mail a long time ago. I should, in fact, leave this group. I can never remember to. I’m a busy pixel girl, these toes aren’t going to paint themselves you know, and so I get busy and forget.

I also don’t generally READ flickr mail so if you send me one, be prepared for it to be six months before I see it.  Continue reading

Brevity is the soul of lingerie

Brevity is the soul of lingerie.

Dorothy Parker always knew exactly what to say and her wit sparkled. I love her quip about lingerie even more than I love this lingerie which is quite a lot.

Brevity is the soul of lingerie.

It’s covered up by the sheer Reva cover-up from Zaara, though bits peek through. Just keeping the front page SFW. This was released at June’s Collabor88 so will be at the store now. The fairy lights are from Floorplan and can be found at Collabor88 for three more days.

Long Styles from Hair Fair in the Frame

Hair Fair in the Frame

This new top and skirt from Hucci for Collabor88 is just the ticket for showing off some of the longer hair styles from Hair Fair. It’s short, cheeky and free of collars (or even fabric) to interfere with the hair.

I had college roommates from Malaysia who wore sarongs all the time. It was amazing how active they could be without their sarongs coming loose. They showed me the proper way to wear a sarong and even gave me several sarongs over time, but I never quite got the knack and always worried when I had my hands full that my sarong might come loose without a hand to grab it. No such worries with the Hucci sarong though. Pixel knots stay in place.
