Battle Cry!

The other night, my best friend Lucie Bluebird and I were fooling around, styling fantasy type looks. We both ended up wearing these beautiful corsets from Enfant Terrible and thigh high fitted mesh boots from lassitude & ennui, both available at We <3 Roleplay this round.

I picked out the pose, Defiance from RACK Poses. It's made as a couple's pose but I hoped on the guy's ball since I'm quite a bit taller than Lucie and it worked perfectly! Since it was 3AM for me, and 1AM for her, I started fooling around with my AnyPose HUD that makes faces and settled on an angry face. I could practically hear her rolling her eyes through the instant message window. But we finally came up with a picture we both liked. You can view Lucie's version here.

First Steps On Land

A new round of The Fantasy Collective started and it's all about under the sea. One of the gorgeous items available is this gown Siren gown from Valentina E. which is available in four different colors and each dress comes with a seaworthy head piece. Along with the gown, I'm wearing new hair from Entwined called Melody, in a merfolk blue color and eye makeup from The Wicked Peach. So if you're looking to outfit a mythological sea creature or sea inspired look, make sure to head over to The Fantasy Collective.

A Simple Baker's Kitchen

Are you any good in the kitchen? Can you cook or are you all about takeout and using the microwave? My cooking skills are pretty limited (let's be honest, I'm lucky I can boil water) but I can bake. You name it and I've probably baked it. I went through this period where I was all about cookie and cake decorating and did some pretty insane designs. It was fun, but extremely time consuming. Dust Bunny has a simple kitchen out at The Season's Story along with a gacha for all your kitchen gadget needs, from a waffle maker to blender and more.

Dust Bunny also has a kitchen cabinet and kettle out at a special event called Leaf On The Wind that benefits a beloved creator in SL, Scarlet Chandrayaan of Alouette, or Amy as some of us know her. Amy was diagnosed with cancer, fought it off, was given a clean bill of health and then was given the news no one wants to hear. The cancer was back worse than ever and she was given 2 years to live. Leaf On The Wind is a fundraising event to fulfill Amy's lifelong wish to visit London. Although the event's goal was met a mere two days after the event opened, there are still two weeks left to shop. All extra money will go towards making the trip to London that much better and give Amy time to relax and recuperate upon her return home.

You're going to London Amy! You are strong, you are loved and you are an inspiration to us all. I can't express with words how much you mean not only to the community of SL, but to me as well and the countless others you have touched in RL. I hope you have the most amazing time and that it's everything you dreamed and more.

Dreams Are The Playground Of Unicorns

If you can't tell by the photo, this round of Collabor88 is all about...UNICORNS! That's right, there is currently an explosion of all things pastel, unicorn, glitter and glitzy. Not crazy about the theme? Don't worry there are still things that fall outside those terms, so make sure to check out the January catalog here.  I tossed on this girly dress from Atomic, which comes in different color combination HUDs depending on the set you buy, along with this crazy wild and whimsical hair from Exile. Top it off with a unicorn horn head piece from Yummy, a charming necklace from Glam Affair and these adorable baby unicorns from MishMish and you have an outfit too precious for words.

High Maintenance

Today I have three looks featuring items from this round of Uber, with the theme "opulence." Featured are dresses from Foxes, Valentina E. and Tres Blah. Along with fashion, the living room scene shows off some of the furniture available as well, such as Kalopsia and Aria. I enjoy having multiple looks in one picture but it does tend to get time consuming. Enough rambling and onto the credits!

Busy Bunnies

It's been absolutely frigid here in Connecticut so I thought I'd have some fun in the snow in SL where the cold isn't a factor. It seems that these little critters are up to some "bunny business." Yes, I am easily amused. I think that's what happens when you work with toddlers all day, every day. The simplest of things become funny. Like rabbits in SL. Now excuse me, I'm off to find my sanity.

Drink Me

I had a lot of fun doing this photo and also did a NSFW version of the picture, which you can see here. I took the picture before the new year, trying to convey a party like atmosphere to bring in 2015. 2014 was full of ups and downs and I experienced a lot of heartache. Hopefully this year will be different and I'm going into it with the mindset that it will be.
