Thundersnow

I happened to be right in the spot where this week’s storm hit hardest, dumping a couple of feet of snow on the city where I live. We have only just today started to dig out. My favorite forecast term from the weather teams this week though, was thundersnow. On Elvi Hartley’s Timeless sim it is definitely snowing hard enough for thundersnow, but sadly I didn’t hear any today.

Glam Affair’s Ellie skin at Uber is one that I really like.  Since I am wearing the Maitreya Lara body today it was extra easy to match because the Glam Affair skin tones are pre-loaded into the Lara hud. Also from Glam Affair is the lovely Bubble necklace, which can be found at this month’s round of Uber.

Here Nor There

When I ventured here
Truth was far not near
So I traveled on
Truth revealed in song

I was here nor there
Always asking where
So I took my time
My heart for me to find

    What he writes here in

The days are short,
The sun a spark,
Hung thin between
The dark and dark.

    I love the photos, Eliza, and the quote, though the link shows a rather unfortunately photo of a young John Updike. He was definitely better in his older years….

Embrace

The Liaison Collaborative is featuring a good number of romantic and sweet couples poses this round, so I strong-armed Stewart into helping me with one of them today. To give him credit, he only grumbled a little.

I also don’t seem to be able to resist working Cory Edo’s glorious Iona Conservatory at Collabor88 into as many photos as possible.

One note on today’s photo: I did have to do a little bit of editing on Damselfly’s lovely Alba hairstyle simply because the neck of my sweater is huge and poked through it a bit. When you haven’t got a gigantic sweater on, it looks like this! Alba is available at the Fantasy Collective which began yesterday.

Sanctuary

While I am a big fan of winter, sometimes I just want to remember that there are places where things are green and growing and it’s warm outside. Cory Edo’s beautiful Iona Conservatory provides an elegant open space for Isla Gealach’s daybed and other bright accessories. After I hide out in here for a bit I’ll be ready to face the New England winter once again.

Attic

My friend Barely took me to this indie club one night about six months ago and there I met Leto and Steel, owners of the Attic and music spinners extraordinaire.

011715a

I’ve been to a few clubs in my time in SL, but this one is different. Leto and Steel as well as every other DJ I have heard play at the Attic are true music-loving (sometimes borderline fanatical) dorks who know their stuff, and I have enjoyed every set I ever heard there. Well, except for the techno-night. But still, there has to be the exception, right? The folks at the Attic are friendly and welcoming so if you’re looking for an non-presumptuous place to hear some good tunes, go sometime. Leto and Steel will take care of you.

P.S. If you are an American Horror Story fan, you’re going to like this place.

I asked Stewart to help me out with this sweet pose from Luna Jubilee today. My background is the gorgeous Iona Conservatory by Cory Edo, available at this month’s round of Collabor88.

I Will Dream

As far as nighties go, I am afraid I wear more of the sturdy flannel variety in RL. Especially in January. But even in RL I do dream sometimes of lovely creations such as the Laurel Lace dress from Baiastice at Collabor88 this round. Specifically I dream that I would look good in it.

In my imagination
You are my dear companion
And I’m the one you cling to
And your voice still calls my name

And though you say you do not want me
And your dreams are never of me
I will dream my dream of you

I Will Dream, Emmylou Harris

Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge

It’s time for another Strawberry Singh challenge, and this one is to post a yearbook-style photo. Smiling is awkward at best and downright creepy at worst in SL. With photo editing it’s doable, but really the only smile that looks even moderately tolerable to me is with a mesh head. And those have issues of their own. However, I find that whether on a mesh head or a regular avatar head, smiles look much better in three-quarter or profile views. At least there is not that weird Chucky-vibe of the straight shot.

The skin applier I used is from the Deluxe Body Factory—an exclusive for My Slink Obsession. And if I had flowing locks like this gorgeous style from Mina in RL you better believe I’d be rocking it for my yearbook photo. As it is, this is what my hay-textured hair actually looked like my senior year of high school.

Pacing the Cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you
You can’t see what’s round the bend
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
Sometimes the darkness is your friend

-Bruce Cockburn, Pacing the Cage

This beautiful dark dress from Valentina E and the gorgeous Reign Sangria heels spoke to my mood today. Damselfly’s untamed Livley is available at We <3 Roleplay.
