The Return

Some come back a little older, a little more grown-up looking. Some look the same. The new ninth-graders look like babies. And while the official attitude is “I hate school,” the smiles on their faces and brightness in their eyes tell a whole different story.

We’re back, kiddos. Let’s do this thing.

Galatee

This gorgeous dress from Endra Graves at Gatsby’s screams sophistication—and I always need more of that in my life. Tiffy Vella’s new vintage sunglasses (which I edited a bit to include a reflection) add class and style. Tiffy is rapidly becoming one of my favorite designers of all time.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Roma sim, I encourage you to check it out, especially if you are a fan of all things Italian.

Dolly

Maxi Gossamer has released her new Little Sparrow set at a new event—the United Fashion Project. I loved the texture change options on these. and they match perfectly with my new Slink sandals from Siddean Munro. I am not sure whether Dolly Parton’s sweet album Little Sparrow was the inspiration for Maxi, but it’s always an inspiration for me. Dolly gets a lot of flack for her looks, which, if you look at her in SL terms, would not be anything out of the ordinary at all. I’ll tell you though, the woman is supremely talented and puts out some of my favorite folk and bluegrass in the world.  You can’t be angry and listen to Dolly. Try it, you’ll see.

Avenue de Ternes

I lived in Paris for almost a year when I was in college. It was quite a change for a western girl like me to be in a city like that. It took awhile for Paris to work its magic on me, but work it did, and it is a city that I love dearly and that has had a great impact on my life.

Barnesworth Anubis’ new skybox reminds me a little of my apartment on Avenue de Ternes, although my little place was not nearly so lovely as this. I did have a wonderful view out my window, however, and it was just as lovely in the rain as not. I wish I had been so glamorous back then, but Maylee Oh and Jackal Ennui are keeping me glamorous now!

Three SL Wishes

Joining in the fun….

 

1. I wish sex weren’t the main draw of SL. Whenever I tell anyone I play in SL their initial reaction is shock—and then they start to wonder just how perverted I am. When I go to marketplace there are boobs or sex poses or some other sexualized item in the featured boxes. Every single time. I know that is why a lot of people come here, and I get it. It’s not why I play. There is so much more to SL. Maybe my perception is wrong, but sex is certainly the primary thing advertised in SL.

2. Put. Away. The. Pitchforks. I hear so many people say “I hate drama” but see very few actually stepping away from it. It is very nearly impossible in SL to truly know all sides of a situation, so save the energy and emotion for things that are worth it. There would be no drama if people didn’t feed into it.

3. I wish land weren’t so expensive. It would be great to see the explosion in creativity if substantial land was accessible to more people.

  1. Rudhmellowen

    You’re wishes are great honey, I love the honesty in them. I have two similar wishes but I didn’t actually think about the land one until reading your wishes… I want cheaper land too!!!! That would be awesome!

Spring Has Sprung

Well it finally happened…there are blossoms on trees and some daffodils making their way out of the ground to let us know that despite all appearances they were not going to skip a year of blooming. It has been lovely to see things get a little less brown and grey.

I am so enjoying the Zodiac event this month. It seems like everything that Jackal Ennui puts out lately I just have to have. And I likewise look forward to each new astrological iteration of Inka Mexicola’s gorgeous skins.

The April Fameshed Fool

There were some seriously obvious April Fool’s jokes flying around today. I don’t know what was wrong with me but I was falling for all of them. The best one was one of our teachers sending out an email saying that our school had been state-approved to grow medical marijuana at the school farm. And I believed it! That should probably tell you a thing or two about my school, but it definitely demonstrates that I am the height of gullible. I consoled myself with a shopping trip to Fameshed, which has just begun with another round full of mesh goodness.

The Long March

How did all these events get scheduled all together in March? It has been a deadly month L-wise this month, but it’s been nice to see the waves of creativity coming from our great SL creators. One favorite item of mine this week is the Essences Aries skin at this round of Zodiac. Inka is well on her way to becoming one of my favorite skin designers.

Ikon Innovia released a few colors of his new Ardent line at the Liaison Collaborative Boutique event launch and he’s clearly been at the grindstone, because if you visit the event now there are several colors added. What a lovely Boutique bonus! (Top to bottom: Brown, Blossom, Black, Platinum, Glass)
