My pose today is a new one from Neva Virenque and her newly formed RK poses. My fitted suede dress from RAMA was made for this pose.

Lake Trout

Gilbert Blythe: “Anne Shirley…..what in the heck are you doing here?”

Anne Shirley: “Fishing for lake trout.”

L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables (1985)

There is a magical place in the highest Rocky Mountains where my family spends a week every year. It’s a time where we disconnect completely from technology and work and we spend time together. This year one of my nieces caught her first fish. Mostly we get rainbows, but sometimes we catch Kokanee salmon or Arctic Greyling. Rainbows are our favorite for dinner on the fire, and I was glad to capture my niece’s look of surprise and pride in her first catch and her careful excitement as she ran from the boat to show her dad.

This landscape is a little less wild than the high Uintahs, but trout are found in rivers as well as mountain lakes. I chose a recent style from Damselfly for it’s messy waves—after a week of camping my hair does kind of look like this, but on Eliza it looks chic and intentional!

Study Break

This weekend is the Rhode Island Academic Decathlon competition. That means my oh-so-delightful-but-procrastinating students put in a long weekend of studying in preparation for a lot of test taking today.

I was wondering what that might look like in SL, and fortunately my collection of books came in handy. Vespertine has quite a few lovely book options in their Arcade gacha this round so it was fun to round them up and put them to good use. Another Arcade jewel is Truth Hawks’ Maiko hair with headphones—they provide a much needed break from all that book-studying. And my sweet heart necklace can be found at this round of One Word.

I also cannot say enough good things about Barnesworth Anubis’ wonderful 5th avenue skybox, out at Collabor88 now. I can see myself living in this one for some time.

Splitting Hairs

It’s that time again, probably my favorite event of the whole year:

Hair Fair

Four sims created especially for hair addicts such as myself. Some favorites for me:

KIK (Hair Fair CLOUD)

I love how flexiprims are still being used for good!



CLAWTOOTH (Hair Fair Harbour) My next two for today are from Clawtooth—definitely one of my top five favorites this year at Hair Fair. Bubbles wins the market on cascading side-curls this year!

Caroline and I braved the mob at Gos Boutique for long enough to get ourselves some shoes already! It was more than worth dealing with a bit of crowdedness to get our hands (and feet) on these beauties. When we got back to our home base and tried them on we knew we had to pay fashion homage somehow. They are shoes that make you feel instantly sexy and who doesn’t like that? And what is sexier than a tango?
