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.

Chills

The other day we had a snowstorm blow through, and while all the snow melted quickly, it was a cold, bitter thing while it lasted. After school I arrived at my car completely covered in snow  and had to do a dance in the middle of the street to shake it all off before I could get in. No doubt it was much appreciated entertainment for the passers-by.

Fortunately my lovely coat and scarf today from Shine escaped the abominable-snowman look. And Maxi Gossamer’s gorgeous Beatrice earrings are the perfect accessory.

If you haven’t got a pair or six of Ikon Innovia’s new Eternal line of eyes then you are definitely missing out. Eternal eyes have a larger wreath around the pupil, giving more variation to the iris coloring, and heightening the reflective contrast of the upper half of the eye.  From a distance:

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Folly

First of all, congrats to the randomly chosen winners of the Yulicie canvas shoes this week:

1. Sam Laszlo

2. Shayariel Teardrop

3. Arya Braveheart

Head over to Yulicie and let me know which color you would like!

And now for Folly, which was, in my opinion, is very aptly named.

fol·ly

noun \ˈfä-lē\

Definition of FOLLY

1: lack of good sense or normal prudence and foresight

2a : criminally or tragically foolish actions or conduct

There was definitely nothing sensible or prudent about how much time it took to put this color together! One thing I am definitely loving though is Luna’s new windlight setting:

One thing about research in SL is that you find some nice things along the way. I found quite a few new-to-me hairstyles from Argrace on the marketplace and chose to wear one of them today. The Argrace store is closed and under construction at the moment so all of the hair designs are on the Marketplace for the time being. There are a lot of great styles for both men and women—s0 for my giveaway this week I will give out one Argrace hairstyle in the color of choice to three commenters on this post.

TGIF

Another week comes to an end…another opportunity to wear some fabulous items from SL designers. Today I wanted something casual and this short dress from Rezzie Luckstone was just the thing. It’s simple, it’s short-but-not- too-short, and it comes in all sorts of colors. A perfect staple to have in your SL inventory. My scarf is from League—there always seems to be just the perfect item or accessory at that store!

I am also reminding everyone that today is the last day to enter my giveaway of Maxi Gossamer’s mesh Shell Earrings fatpack! If you want to enter, comment on last week’s Color Challenge post today  before 11pm SLT.  I am wearing one of the colors in my photos below… you know you want them, don’t you??? I will be announcing the three winners on the next color challenge post on Saturday, Jan.21st!

Fifty Linden Friday Farewell

Today began the last Fifty Linden Friday, and boy, am I sad to see this amazing event go. Fifty Linden Fridays not only got me excited when a favorite designer participated, but introduced me to so many new designers and stores that have become favorites in their turn. So thanks to all you designers and mostly to Barb for making it all happen for the last two years. Many of the designers are leaving their items up through the weekend, so check them out while you can, and say a fond farewell. My boots, necklace and clutch today are all from FLF.
