I was imagining today what my students would say if I walked into class with this many piercings and with gold paint on the tips of my ears. That is one reaction I would love to see. I might have to try it one day.

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.

    Such a gorgeous shot of you hon, you look actually a little like an evil villain… hehe Love this photo of you!

Summer’s End

It was sixty-five beautiful degrees this morning when I went in to school. It set the tone for a blissfully happy day. Lately I have been spending some time wandering around the beautiful Finlandia sim. This is rural farm beauty at it’s best and makes me wish I could visit in RL. It’s probably just cool enough for a sweater, like this great off-the-shoulder one from Useful Things.


It’s so fun to wear the new Kaleido eyes from Ikon Innovia—they look fairly normal from average distance, but it’s fun to see how much you have to zoom in to pick out the different shapes in the eyes.

When I asked my sweet friend Caroline to do a Hair Fair shoot with me, I arrived and saw her looking fabulous, as usual. Caroline always looks so perfect that I inevitably have an evil-queen-mirror-mirror moment every time I see her.  Caroline is way too nice for a poisoned apple, but a water balloon?  I confess to a small satisfaction in smacking her with a nice big one.



Hm, that felt good. Maybe another when she’s not expecting it!


Anyway, even splashed with water balloons, she is a great sport and her gorgeous style from Queue Marlowe at Hair Fair still looks great.

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:


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!
