Jaywalking

There are two intersections I cross every day on my walk to school. Providence is an urban area so I usually end up parking about a half a mile from school since there is nowhere to park any closer. Hence the intersections. One of them is quite safe, à la crossing guard, but the other is a busy four-way intersection. And of course, I am constantly running across it even when the sign says don’t walk. I do this despite the fact that a colleague of mine did, in fact, get hit by a car in that intersection, although that was when the walk sign was actually on. I’m an even worse jaywalker in Boston, where if you wait for a walk sign you’re likely never going to get anywhere.

Would that I wore such elegant clothes (especially shoes…don’t even get me started about teacher shoes…) to school, but at least Eliza can look stylish as she dashes across the street in New York.

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!

Twisted Color Challenge: Catch-up

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.

Better Late Than Never

I had a couple of cute poses from Pose Fair that I meant to get to before Pose Fair ended, but RL got in the way. I have a weakness for sweet, playful poses, and I found two great ones at this year’s Pose Fair. This first one is from DLuxx. Stewart told me to behave or he would dump me unceremoniously into the pond.

Another sweet pose is Trying to Hold On from the talented RubyStarlight Writer of Exposeur.

    omgosh.. SO perfect! Don’t you love it when you find the perfect item!? 😀

  2. Rudhmellowen

    That skirt is beyond perfect honey, you look gorgeous. I think that this has to be one of my favourite photos of you to date! I LOVE the lighting and the contrasts… SO PRETTY

    this was awesome!!

Enhanced

The prevailing news around the grid these days is of the incredible new Avatar Enhancement system for hands and feet from Siddean Munro. One of the things that drives me battiest in SL is trying to match skin, a task for which I have no aptitude whatsoever. The hands and feet are updated versions of the old mesh hands and feet, and these new versions work with the different skin-matching and nail and even panty hose HUDs available from several different skin creators. I am done skin-matching forever!

There are also quite a few new mesh clothing designs out right now. Mon Tissu has released my new favorite spring shorts and at Drift I found a sweet ruffled tank with a color mixing and matching hud.

Dreaming of Spring

The weather people promise us solemnly that we are going to break fifty degrees this week. My slightly-wet hair froze when I went outside this morning though, so forgive me if my confidence in weather people is less than ideal. At least in SL I can get some reliably sunny skies. The talented Anouk Spot is back with some wonderful new designs for spring, so I wandered around in them for awhile today along with my decidedly un-frozen hair from Wasabi Pills.
