Raining In My Heart

Thanks to Stewart for the title of today’s post, and the Buddy Holly-inspired rainy day. I loved this wet hair from Catwa so much that I had to do a photo wherein it could be properly displayed—what better than a rainstorm? Memo to hair-makers, please make more styles like this! We need more situational hair on the grid!

Art Deco

Art Deco is the theme for this round of Genre, and there are some wonderful items available at the event. Tiffy Vella has released another gorgeous jewelry set, called Rhapsody in Blue. Also at the event is a beautiful skin from Mayaa Thistle of Jalwa.

Two more great items hail from Synjary Miriam of Senzafine and Kerryth Tarantal of Spyralle. This gorgeous dress is worthy of any event, and my wall sconce adds the necessary dramatic accents.

Catch Up

It has been a few days since I was able to blog so I have a few pictures to throw in this time. To begin, one of my favorite items from Fameshed this round is the gorgeous spring dress from Valentina E.

Endra Graves opened a clothing store a couple of months ago called Gatsby’s, so Endra now offers lovely mesh clothing designs as well as jewelry, for which she is best known. This little red and black number is adorable. Also a favorite is the Millie skin from Belleza that was out for Fifty Linden Fridays last week. I look forward to seeing Millie in more tones! And if Ivey Deschanel’s gorgeous Helena dress last week wasn’t enough for you, she has also released these bold mesh earrings.

Away From It All

Every summer my family goes up to a lake in the high Uintahs for one week away from any kind of media or technology. It’s a week where we do a lot of swimming, hiking, and sitting around talking to each other. We play Yahtzee and make kites and cook over the fire. We stay in one-room cabins that sometimes have chipmunk visitors, unlike this gorgeous summer cabin from Apple Fall. My one geeky brother-in-law who struggles the most with the no technology thing downloads geo-caching maps into his phone so he can take all the kids treasure hunting. It’s the best week of the year. All of the fun games by Elle Kirshner of Second Spaces at the Arcade got me thinking about the fun times ahead this summer. I particularly liked the chinese checkers set, but all of the games look great and I am sure they will be making further appearances in the future!

It has been a crazy few weeks and I have fallen behind on my color challenge photos, so this morning  I had an extravaganza and got myself caught up.

It’s A Beautiful Day

It’s a beautiful day

And I can’t stop myself from smiling

If we’re drinking then I’m buying

And I know there’s no denying

It’s a beautiful day

The sun is out and music’s playing

And even if it started raining

You won’t hear this boy complaining

‘Cause I’m glad that you’re the one who got away

It’s a beautiful day

-It’s A Beautiful Day, Michael Bublé

 

This song has absolutely nothing to do with anything today, it’s just such a lovely, upbeat song and it has been in my mind since one of my graduating seniors sang it in our awards assembly at school this week. He’s got a few years left before he’s a Michael Bublé, but he did a great job and I love him just the same.

I think it’s a beautiful day for different reasons. First, Tiffy Vella has a new jewelry set out this week, which I love. There are many wonderful items at Fameshed this month, two of which are my summery shoes from Gos Boutique, and a beautiful new jewelry set from Caelan Hancroft.

I am not sure how Ikon does it, but out he comes with another gorgeous line of eyes. These have a particularly dreamy look to them.

Have a beautiful day, everyone.

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.

    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!

Just Couture

If you read this blog at all you know it’s a PG blog. I don’t do the lingerie or sexual or even topless photos.  Fabric, texture and design are what fascinate me, and the more fabric there is, the more there is to love. If you like lingerie and nude or semi-nude modeling, there’s a lot out there. But it won’t be on this blog.

How I ended up in a photo shoot for Whore Couture then, is a mystery.

Bella Szentmartony asked for some volunteers for the shoot yesterday and after I said I was available it came up that I had to wear something from Whore Couture. So I headed over to see what I could find. Just from the name you can imagine that as a PG blogger I was in a dilemma. There is a lot to choose from, but nothing I could wear on my own blog.

Except this headband.

It’s a darling headband though. And as I walked around a bit more I found the stunning Mya skin from Belleza.

I apologize for ruining the group picture with censoring, but you know, PG. Head over to Bella’s Flickr for the full photo!

A Smile Indeed

Kaelyn Alecto’s new sim on Onyx Isle is gorgeous. I hope many, many bloggers will go there and take pictures, because it deserves to be photographed, often. I wanted to keep on walking and never stop.

Then, because the yellow fields were so tempting I had to take a stroll through them. Did I mention this place was gorgeous? Go take a twirl through the buttercups, my friends, and see for yourselves.

    GORGEOUS… I love the fact that you’ve taken rear shots, its not often people photograph their back, but I totally agree with you and I LOVE that shot of you dancing in the buttercups
