Calm Waters

Leezu’s Cora skirt cries out to be worn at the beach, and so today I visited the Santaurio sim. This year summer is taking a long long LONG time to get here and I am craving some beach time. You can find this skirt at Leezu’s store at Fashion For Life.

Home At Last

One of my favorite items at Fashion for Life this year is this great dress from Shiki. In RL I could never wear this to work as it would be covered in chalk dust and who knows what else by the end of the day. But I can dream of having a glamorous office job, right? A job where I can wear pretty shoes like these lovely G.Field classics without fear of falling down the stairs or over backpacks (yes, both have happened ) and have perfectly coiffed hair like this smooth style by Truth Hawks that I don’t run my fingers through in frustration twenty times a day. There is a reason teachers look the way they do. Ah well, this is what SL is for, right?

Moonlight Sortie

There’s nothing like sledding on a bright, moonlit night. And Isla Gealach’s new Chilly Sled is made for moonlit nights!



Con likes to keep me company and race me down the hill. My gorgeous warm socks are from Gawk! at the Frost Fair. And my bright, wind-reddened cheeks come from the amazing Tricky  Boucher of Belleza.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Jonquil

I love this color. There’s something about yellow that provides an instant mood lift. This week a quiet, beach-side moment was in order, and this great parasol and beach towel set was perfect.

Congrats to Ygrey Auer, who wins the Vintage Fair set from Tiffy Vella! Since the days of summer are waning, everyone should take a beach moment, so I will give one beach towel and parasol set away next week!

    What a sweet scene, you with the flower in your hair, ruffly little swimsuit, quiet beach with a cerulean sky. Can I come join you?

A lovely day on New Brighton Pier…just one of those hot, hazy days of summer made for wandering around until you have to seek an air-conditioned sanctuary!

Free Time

Now that classes have finished there is a bit more time for relaxing and keeping up a bit better with this blog. To celebrate this found time I dragged Stewart off for yet another photo shoot and this time made him wear mesh clothes and body parts. After a bit of consternation he sorted it out very quickly, and is something of a natural at matching skin tone for attached body parts. He’s a smart cookie. I also really wanted to wear the new mesh shorts from Mon Tissu, so it was time for some warm-weather wear!
Today I am using a couple of poses from Veridian Frog at Mood Swings that I thought were super cute. The first is called Can’t Break Her Fall, but Stewart appears to be doing a pretty good job of breaking mine. He tends to do that in many aspects of my SL.


Stewart’s mesh shorts are from Box. They have a great texture. I do confess that I look forward to the day when natural wide-body movements do not distort clothing textures, but if you are just looking for some board shorts to run around in, these are nicely done.

    You two are very cute. Love the shorts.

Gone to Carolina

I am on my own this weekend while my husband is in North Carolina for a conference. We lived in NC for four years (probably the best four years of my life) and while I wasn’t able to go with him in body, I am definitely with him in spirit. Good thing I have this sweet new dress from coldLogic to keep me weather appropriate for my favorite Southern state!


Megan is a lovely new skin by Carisma Creations. I really like Megan’s eyebrows and soft face. 032312a

Fashion For Life 2012: Tres Beau

Today I am wearing two items from Tres Beau—one was a FFL hunt gift and the other was the 55 for Life item. Now, I am admittedly a more casual dresser, even in SL, but when you put on a dress like this one, there is only one thing to do, and that is get ready to go out. Now if I can only find my shoes!


I love all the time-themed items that we have seen throughout this event, and this one is as gorgeous as can be:


There is one more day left of Fashion for Life, and our fearless leader Harper Bereford has thrown out a challenge if we break last year’s fundraising record and I have to say, it’s something I’d like to see. So take advantage of the time that’s left, and in the meantime, see ya!
