Reluctant to Walk

Pinwheels represent, most commonly, the act of turning one’s luck around; however, they also represent childhood innocence, unseen energy, wish fulfillment and transformation, depending on where one looks. Reluctance to WalkWhere you look is up to you.

…heir of nothing in particular

Tuesdays are my days off, so I spent the day at the doctor’s office.  Actually, I spent roughly 1 hour and 10 minutes at the doctor’s office.  I’ve been in Vegas for 11 months now, and I was about to run out of my prescriptions. Apparently, I’m not easy to be around if I don’t have Prozac in my system, and I was starting to mildly freak out. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Prozac, it really isn’t a ‘fun’ drug. If I want to have fun, I slam some wine. If I want to be normal, I pop Prozac. I hope I don’t pass that on one day. While I was there, the doctor asked me if anything else I wanted to bring up. My family is still in Albuquerque, so I’m a frequent flier now. My pup flies with me because he’s my emotional support and I couldn’t leave him alone (clearly, I’m also confused as to who needs who more). Now, he is my official emotional support pups as I have a letter to prove it. Don’t worry…I won’t abuse that. I do love having him around and he does calm me down. Really, all animals are awesome.

Now that I got that off my chest, who’s ready for Halloween?

heir of nothing in particular

Styles by Danielle’s Arabella gown will be a hit at any Halloween formal event, but it offers several optional pieces that you can wear separately. It’s definitely not a gown you will have to put away after Halloween. Instead, you can wear it any time of the year. Arabella is available in Black, Red, Blue, and Taupe and is Slink and Wowmeh compatible.  Also, Arabella is discounted for Danielle group members!

How soon is now

My black cat is my only accessory unless you count my nail polish. Styles by Danielle’s October group gift is Miss Shiny Nail Polish Halloween style. Like traditional prim nails? Covered. The prim nails come with a HUD so you can choose between eight textures. Love Slink? Covered. You know how appliers roll and you can have a Halloween  themed mani/pedi.

How do you picture the future of SL?  If you say sky high buildings and high heel wedges, we are on the same page!

In honor of SL11B, johannes1977 reveals the Tribute City-Black Eagle Rock Club always moves and never stops. While the events are done, all of the sims are open for your viewing pleasure, so check out what may be Second Life’s future.  At dusk, the tall, moving buildings have an ethereal glow.

SL11B

In crisp daylight, the build offers a magnetic background for pictures. Really, it was almost mesmerizing to watch the buildings rotate.

Second Life 11 Birthday Celebration

If you need a little relaxation, I highly recommend you visit it. The sims close on July 5th, so you have plenty of time!

Now about my sky high wedges, if you are looking for a traditional pair, Styles by Danielle’s mesh Vista Wedges come in rigged and non-rigged versions. The HUD gives you 8 skin bases, with a color mixture, 3 platform textures, 15 nail textures, and the choice of gold or silver metal. You also have 11 colors to choose from. I am embracing the season before Labor Day and running around in the white version.

Sharing is caring: Let’s see your selfies!

Are you up for a challenge?

No? Hey. I can’t believe you gave up that easy! :/ Come on…everyone loves a selfie right? As many of you know, it’s Second Life’s 11th birthday! While the celebration started on the 22nd, the party is still kicking until June 29th. Doc Gascoigne wants to see your faces amongst the birthday celebration! Now, taking the perfect selfie is not rocket science, but I always say go high! Camera angle high that is.

How to take a selfie

When you have your camera above your head, it slims the face. Or, perhaps my real life face is too round. :/ At any rate,  the angle works for me.

How to take the perfect selfie

Take up Doc’s challenge okay? This year, SL’s birthday theme is the future. How do you envision SL’s future? If you can’t picture it yourself, come to the celebration. So many beautiful builds and you can take the perfect selfie while you’re there! Share your SL11b selfies with SL11B’s official Flickr.

I snapped my selfie at one of the starting points, so click invite and celebrate SL’s b-day!  Have fun!

“Sit on the side and watch the world go by.”

Although I can be moody, I’m actually an optimist. If something doesn’t go my way, I think it’s meant to be or a sign from above.  I feel so Zen today. I spent some time at Baja Norte. Have you gone yet? If you’re a beach lover, you’ll love it. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Whenever I blog, I like to explore new places. It’s honestly the only time I leave my teeny parcel.

Finding the Perfect Picnic Spot

I wanted something beachy to go along with PurpleMoon Creations‘ newest dress Leia. It’s the type of dress that you can dress up or down, which I can appreciate because I tend to veer more towards the casual side of life.

Waiting for a Sign

PurpleMoon Creations’ Leia comes in 10 different colors with a contrasting ribbon trim.  It’s super pretty!  Click PurpleMoon for a lift.

It’s not me, it’s you.

Have you ever dodged someone you don’t want to talk to? It’s relatively easy to mute someone in SL, but sometimes there is more than a WiFi (fleeting) connection and one develops a friendship type of relationship, so real life numbers and emails are exchanged…you know the drill. I haven’t spent much time inworld, and sometimes I do have the time, but I don’t have the desire to chat. My real friends know this and leave me alone with my nerdy blogging ways, but some, in particular, try and make me feel bad.

Don’t. Please? Lol. Okay, drama over! However, I really do mean it. That time has passed.

Winter Morning

I’m such a sucker for plaid! Prism Designs’ Yesi in Winter Morning is a lovely soft pink shade. It’s very girly girl if you are so inclined. It also comes with the shoes and the thigh high leg warmers. It’s a mix and mash item because all pieces can be worn separately.

“don’t let the world bring you down”

Liv Glam’s fashion is quirky fun that has a definite personality. I fell in love with the I’ve Never Been to Me Sweater! It reminds me of my rl pups. He’s a reindeer chihuahua, and I read somewhere (may have been Wikipedia, but I still believe the article) that foxes are in the reindeer chihuahua family. It makes sense to me!

My outfit comes with a color change hud, so you’re able to change the belt and the shirt’s color with one easy click. The Soft Kitty sweater and pants are a complete outfit too, sans the color change hud, but it has a super sexy fit. Click here for a lift to Liv Glam. Happy shopping!

Post title from Soundgarden’s “Blow up the Outside World”

a foreign affair

Yesterday, I had quite the adventure in Milan.

Where is he?

Wearing Prism Babe by Journey – Daisy

The train rolled in, but he wasn’t on board.

Ooh, I wonder where she got her dress.

Wearing Egoisme – Sundress – Watercolors Multi, Evian Petra pale skin, and free Egoisme Smartphone gift

Maybe he missed it. I guess I’ll go shopping as I wait for the next train to roll in.

Milan sightseeing

Gorgeous new gowns…I want them all! Hmm…maybe it’s not wise to shop on an empty stomach.

Wearing Evian Aphrodite pale skin

I’ve been sitting here for hours and still no sign of him.

In the meantime…

Where is she?

Wearing !BeUp! Outfit #3 from SL Fashion Week and Evian Skin Eros

The handsome man wonders where is she? She said she would meet me right here. I suppose I’ll look around, but night is falling. Wait…

“Laylah? Is that you?”

Milan Happy Ending

Yes…a long super long post, but the moral of the story…find your boyfriend before you window shop. Ok, that’s not really a moral. I wanted to just show Egoisme’s gorgeous new mainstore 😀

According to their press release:

“The new Egoisme store is a new concept; not just a place where you can buy fashion and skins but a piece of RL art in SL.”

Egoisme 1

You can visit the place, learn about it and discover a new world. In Milan this Gallery is called also Milan’s drawing room, or “salotto di Milano” because it is elegant, you can shop and sit in the famous art nouveau style cafe.

Egoisme 2

“Art and fashion in the same place, which is an experience we made years ago and now we bring to next level, using the mesh technology, and new creations in theme. Egoisme will now launch many new pieces with some special offers to celebrate the new store.”

Egoisme 4

“Plus our goal is to produce an Art Expo and we will launch new projects and transform the Egoisme main store into a real place where customers are protagonists and where people can finally discover real life architecture and art in a virtual setting.”

It’s a beautiful place to take location shots! Take the teleport to Egoisme and see it for yourself.

Around the World with Glamour Style Fay

Glamour Style by Christy Hamer has a new release that screams vacation! Fay is a cool mesh dress and it also has a little suitcase! The suitcase has a built-in AO, so you are able to use it to walk and it also has a stand. I wanted to show the sexy side slits and the suitcase, so just to let you know, I’m not standing in the pose in the picture below. Each item is sold separately or you can purchase the complete outfit that comes with the mesh boots, hat, and suitcase for 630L. If you just love the dress, you can get that for 290L. That also comes with the suitcase as a gift.

I did some photo editing with the above picture, so I’m adding a couple of raw shots to show the outfit accurately. I love the open back!. I’m not normally a hat person, but this little cap is too adorable with the little ribbon on the brim.

The suitcase can be used for other outfits of course, especially if you are into roleplaying modern travelers (if there is such a roleplay lol).

The default stand is just a basic stand and you wear the suitcase on your hand. If you like to wear nails and other accessories, you can simply add the suitcase or accessories to have both on. I personally don’t have much use for a suitcase in SL, but I love this little dress. It also comes in a beautiful brown that is a perfect shade for fall. Here’s a ride to Glamour Style and you can check out both! Click HERE! 😀
