Last Days

School has started, and the hot weather has almost imperceptibly started to take a turn downwards. For me that cannot occur soon enough, but it is also a time of wistful longing of all that flexible time in the summer when I can go to the bathroom whenever I want and days where my dog doesn’t look at me reproachfully every morning when I leave for work.

Pose Fair 2012: Couples

A while I go I did Luna Jubilee’s Love Challenge and talked about my friend Stewart. It would appear I embarrassed him rather badly. But you know, embarrassed in that slightly embarrassed-but-sort-of-sheepish-pleasure sort of way. He has gone through a bit of a transformation, probably because when you have a mad girl running about snapping pictures of you when you aren’t aware of it, and posting them online for the world to see, it behooves him to be a bit more prepared.
There are some adorable couples poses available at the Pose Fair and I have seen so many great ones in the blog feeds. The two I chose today are both piggy-back poses. One thing I love about SL is being the kind of wispy little thing that men can throw over their shoulders and haul around with ease. Alas, the last time that was possible I think I was eight.
This first one is from Ploom. I like how the pose works perfectly with no body parts sticking through any others.

This next fun pose is from Everglow and it just oozes with cuteness. Stewart was a bit worried that his back would break but fortunately he lived and his back remains unbroken.

This next pose isn’t from Pose Fair, but it did go right along with the carry-Eliza-around theme. This one is from Magnifique, who is at the Pose Fair, but this one might not be there. And don’t let that smile fool you, Stewart was still grousing about his back!  I suspect he wanted to dump me unceremoniously into Izzie Button’s perfectly rendered pond.

February Fun

February is my least favorite month of the year. It has always been this way. February seems terribly blah to me. It’s the coldest month of the year where I live (although at least this year that doesn’t mean much) and it’s just feels like I’m in limbo, waiting for spring. Oh, and I always do the taxes in February. What a great month!

Valentine’s Day is stuck in there to liven things up, but honestly my husband and I only have one tradition…to see who can find the sappiest card available. In SL I haven’t delved the depths of greeting card sappiness, but I do adore Rezzie Luckstone’s cute Valentine’s Day t-shirts. So I got some of the gals together and had a little February fiesta. (Although it may have been more like a torture session to them!)

This fun Derriere Challenge comes from Gogo over at Juicy Bomb. I was talking about it to a friend today and he said that usually butts look better when they are clothed. I had to laugh, but sort of secretly agree. Sadly, the maker of my very favorite shorts of all time in SL closed up shop almost a year ago. Thank goodness I got them in time! I am also appreciating this recently released pose from Katey Coppola that allows me to shake my booty but also show one of my favorite items from the jewelry fair—the Beach Trash bracelet from Cento Pallini.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Firebrick

Alas, we are inching ever closer to the end of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. This week we have firebrick. Actually quite a nice color sending us gently into the fall season, at least here in the northern hemisphere. A friend mentioned the town of Staffordshire in England that has a very well-known history in pottery and china manufacturing. So I decided to do a little pottery making myself. One fun thing I found was the pottery design kiosks at Lantian. You can design and purchase your own pots there, two of mine are on the back shelf in my first photo. And since I was getting artistic, I figured, why limit the art to pottery? I have been waiting for the right moment to wear this great tattoo from Wicked Gear, and here it is!

I’ve been wanting to show this adorable raft from Zoe’s Garden for some time, and finally had the time to sit down and play around with it. It includes singles and couples poses, all of which are super cute and perfect for laying around on the lake or the ocean! Here I’ve chosen a quiet lake with it’s gorgeous surrounding trees, all built by a good friend of mine. So if you need a little dream-time, find yourself a  body of water and dream away!

I am also in love with the latest group gift hair from Catwa—available until July 7th. If you are not a member of the group or if you are not familiar with Catwa’s work, check it out. You’ll probably fall in love as quickly as I did. The only thing that is a bit difficult about Catwa’s hair is that it is no modify, which sometimes can cause problems when you are trying to get it to fit just right, especially for photographs. However, I have found that much of the time it fits perfectly without having to make any changes at all, like today!
