All I Want Is You

Oh well you might think I’m crazy
To hang around with you
Or maybe you think I’m lucky
To have somethin’ to do
But I think that you’re wild
Inside me is some child
You might think I’m foolish
Or maybe it’s untrue
You might think I’m crazy
But all I want is you

-The Cars, You Might Think

As we head into the Memorial Day weekend it’s going to be ever-more tempting to shed those winter clothes and head for the water. Damien Fate’s new swimwear line gave Stewart lots of options, but he chose the new Mark trunks. He did try out the new fitted Ian trunks as well but they looked a little, er, too realistic, if you know what I mean!

Hush Darkrose’s newest skin is definitely one to show off in the great outdoors, and Sissy Pessoa’s great denim shorts at the Dressing Room Fusion are great wading wear. I love this great lingerie top from DCNY that is out for Fifty Linden Fridays. I can pretend it’s a bikini top, right?

Stewart came around while I was doing my pics and the time just seemed right for an impromptu dance. You know you randomly dance in fields too, admit it!

A Really Big Fireplace

There are two dreams I have always had…the first is to have a really, really big bathtub, and the other is to have a great big fireplace that you can cook stuff in. I haven’t realized either dream yet in RL, and as far as fireplaces go, it’s probably never gonna happen. So imagine my happiness to find this great little mesh cottage from Post as part of the Cold Winter Nights hunt. And it has a fireplace to please my pyromaniac heart!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Cadmium Red

This week it was my pleasure to do a photo shoot with the great Maxi Gossamer. Most people know that she makes beautiful mesh jewelry but maybe they don’t know just how lovely a person she really is. Not to mention a total babe!!! Is this an SL supermodel I see before me?

063012d

When I saw this color scheduled for the week of July 4th, I couldn’t resist a little patriotism…but why restrict it to just the U.S.A?  London is hosting the Olympics in just a few weeks, so we’re all about to get super patriotic! All that notwithstanding, we did take a little time to give each other a trans-atlantic stare-down.

063012a

In addition to the great jewelry we are wearing, we both rock these completely cadmium red pants from Mesh It. And I just love the US flag themed nails from My Pretty Pixels.

063012b

Congrats to Akayo and Inkie, who have won a hairstyle of their choice at Burley! For next week, I will give away a Maxi Gossamer mystery item that hasn’t been released yet…how’s that for suspense? At least you know that if it’s made by Maxi, it’s gonna be great!

  3. Rudhmellowen

    YAYYYYYY Rocking the UK Flag. You both look great and the UK/US Stare down photo is brilliant, who won the staring contest though? It does give you a proud feeling being a Brit at the moment, for me it does anyway lol… What with the Jubilee and the Olympics, mind you I got a bit patriotic when I left the UK, never had been before. YOU LOOK AWESOME!!!! So excited to see the Maxi Gossamer Jewellery! YAY!

  4. Alexandra

    yeah for the transatlantic stare down. Maxi’s creations totally rocks. And thank you , by the way, for the gift last week. I would comment without the gift, but it was a pleasure , indeed. I myself am popping over to UK the exact day the Olympics start, I had forgotten everything about the dates. But still very easy and cheap! to get the flight ticket

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Unmellow Yellow

This week I went inventory diving to see what I had that was yellow. I confess I don’t wear it too often so I pulled out everything yellow and went to town. My earrings today may just be my very favorite ever. However, it just tops the list of things I am wearing that make me giddy.

Yard Work

I live in a very populated urban area so I don’t actually have a yard. It’s a dream of mine for someday, along with being able to look out my windows and not see a bar. For now I content myself with a potted blueberry bush on the stairs outside my door.

I indulge my need for isolated housing in SL. This cute mesh cottage from LAQ fit the bill perfectly, with it’s old world charm and lovely textures. It also comes with some potted flowers, which is really the only kind I know about.

060412b

I am wearing all kinds of mesh goodness today—my soft, comfortable pants are new from Zara Yip at Pirate Arts. Perfect for gardening and for relaxing with my big boy Con!

060412a

I also love the new Seraphina necklace from Maxi Gossamer. Particularly impressive are the small details on the pendant reminiscent of astrological signs or bodies. I’ll pay court to all of them if they will make my flowers grow!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Pistachio

While the color swatch this week looks less like pistachio and more like kiwi to me, I have to admit that those pistachio muffins that are so popular at the bakeries do have the electric-green tinge:

PistachioM_Cropped

See what I mean? Unfortunately none of the commercial recipes had even a whiff of actual pistachio in them. And what a loss, for pistachios would only make things yummier!

So pistachio or not, I love the color!

Last weeks winner of the Lapointe & Bastchild Swear Drift outfit is Christa Thespian. Watch for your prize in-world!

For next week I will give away a dress set by a new-to me designer, Toxxic Rhiyannr at alter ego. You can only see a corner of this sweet dress, but it’s way cute!

Rez Day #3

Today is my third rez day. I have to admit that when I first started in SL I didn’t think I would be here long-term. These past three years have been full of love, learning, fun, friends and the inevitable drama and heartache. I have learned that my av shouldn’t have legs as long as Chile, and that sunken cheeks are not a good look! Now three years is a blink compared to how long some people have been here—I can only hope to last so long!

So on to today’s post. We have had a relatively cool spring. I am not complaining about that, especially since the only good thing about summer, in my opinion, is that kids aren’t in school. Everything else I can do without. Heat, bugs, humidity, you name it. I like wearing clothes. I like being able to take my dog out without having her suffer heat stroke. I like to get in my car and drive it without suffering second-degree burns from touching the seat belt. I should be living in Alaska or Northern Canada or Sweden, because I hate, hate, hate to be hot.

The Las Lagunas sim gives you the sense that it could have a hot, tropical environment or a breezy island climate. I choose breezy! And what is better for a breezy day than this soft, billowy top from Arisaris that keeps the edge off but lets that cool air in?

052912b

My great necklace and earrings today are from Amorous and I love their great geometric design. Ikon Innovia keeps putting out new styles and colors, but one thing I really appreciate is that from time to time he gives us a luscious new color in the good old Sunrise design, which I still love. These are called Summer, and they reflect the dreamy haze of the season to perfection.
