The blogger’s closet

Festival Of Sin II has been so much fun so far! It’s winding down, and closes September 5th, so I wanted to share some goodies from the event before it’s over!

I love the hair MINA did for Lust. It’s so lush and sexy. The shoes from fri.day for Vanity are gorgeous, sexy and versatile. I’ve paired them with a stunning new release from coldLogic’s new brand neve (more on neve to come soon!). This dress is so pretty, with its lacy texture and (though they’re covered by my hair here) dainty straps. I’m using Exposeur’s glam Luxury Closet gacha for Greed at FOS II as a backdrop for this look. I thought it did a pretty great job of representing what a blogger’s closet might look like, if SL bloggers actually had closets and not inventories. Though come to think of it, mine would probably be more cluttered and less organized! šŸ˜›

The Blogger's Closet

In this picture, I’m wearing Blueberry’s recently released yoga pants with items from Uber. My top is Miss Chelsea and my hair is Truth, and both can be found at Uber. The gym bag next to me, by Bueno, is also at Uber. My sleepy koala friend is by +Pepper+ and is at Festival Of Sin II in Sloth. The beautiful barn I’m using as my yoga studio is from Pixel Mode’s Arcade release. This release has NO rares! Even this gorgeous barn build is a common. The Arcade is now open, and runs all month so if you can’t get in yet, don’t fret! You have time.

Koalas can sleep through anything

I was honored to be chosen as a Hottie Cooterati staff blogger, so I’ve blogged some pics over there, but I wanted to share them here, too.

This one was taken on the FOS II sim, in the Sloth section with a fellow FOS II blogger.Ā The builds are spectacular, and honestly it’s worth going for that alone, but there are so many goodies to be had, too. You can read the full credits on this post here.

Seen at the Sloth Motel

This one features Schadenfreude’s Acedia table, which comes in a clean version, too. I also have one of Anya Ohmai’s free sponsor gifts featured here, a snow globe designed for Hopscotch. You can read all about this post here.

Spiders in the attic

Finally, in this picture I’m wearing Alice Project’s sexy bedhead hair for Lust, Baiastice’s stunning gown for Vanity and Cae’s serpent bracelet for Envy, along with one of her gacha rings for Greed. You can get all the details here.

My 6th rezz day…

So Saturday marked 6 years since I joined SL. It’s been quite the journey, and the past 6 years of my RL have been, at times, very turbulent. So there’s been a comfort in the constant that is SL. And I’ve made some truly amazing friends.

I’ve grieved for friends who have died in RL. I’ve cried over the end of friendships, and celebrated the birth of new ones. I’ve fought and made up with friends. I’ve co-owned two stores with my RL and SL husband, with whom I joined SL back in 2009. I’ve been an event owner, an event creator and an event owner. We own a sim. My first job was as a stripper when I was less than two weeks old, and lasted all of an hour (before Rad realized he was, in fact, jealous, lol). I’ve been a photographer, doing both studio and wedding photos, with plenty of repeat clients. And of course, I’ve been a blogger for the past almost four years, first microblogging on Flickr, and then starting this official blog in 2012. And last year I even bought my own domain. I figured I’d be bored with blogging – or even with SL entirely – by now, but that just hasn’t happened so far.

I’ve lived quite the Second Life so far… and I don’t see myself leaving any time soon. Thank you to all who have been a part of it, and to theĀ friend who let me “borrow” her bedroom for the below picture.

Princess in waiting

I can honestly say I still love SL… I still find creativity and fun and friendship here. I am grateful and happy to have such an outlet in my life.

Champagne & Music

I was in a mood to decorate, and I had this lovely living room set from Atelier Visconti for The Garden. I wanted a dramatic coffee table, and DIGS has this tufted coffee table that felt it would go perfectly with the rest of the set. I added DIGS end tables and lamps from Pixel Mode’s Josephine (also at The Garden), and voila! But then I needed a piano, and ofc some books… and assorted decor. After which point, I was fairly tired so I relaxed on my Alouette piano.

Sing me a song

But I was all dressed up, so I decided that maybe I needed to go out for a drink. Except I wasn’t really feeling in the mood for company, so what to do? Ah! A solo glass of champagne in my clock tower bar.

Beach Babes

My Attic ends tomorrow, and W. Winx & Flair have created this playful photo scene with poses called Wish You Were Here. I got a fellow bloggerĀ to put on a bikini and pose with me for this one. My cute hair is also at My Attic, from Ploom. As always, the items at My Attic are just L$95 so be sure to hurry over before it ends and grab yourself some summer goodies.

The Childless Mother

I am the childless mother.
Dreams shattered, the pieces
lurk in dark corners
linger in shadows

I am the childless mother.
But not the only one
who weeps silent tears
from a seemingly endless well

I am the childless mother.
My day is not today,
when those who give life
are celebrated

I am the childless mother.
But never alone,
the sorrow cannot overtake
gifts given by those who love me

~Lucie Bluebird

Childless Mother

Dedicated to everyone who was there for me today… and to all who know my sorrow. But most of all, dedicated to the husband who loves me through every day, no matter what.

Arcade Afterglow…

The sounds of a seaside boardwalk. The fun of the games. The seemingly endless stuff you can win. The Arcade is wonderfully exhausting. So, here I am, in my gorgeous Scarlet Creative home from The Arcade, sitting in comfy Junk chair from the Arcade, surrounded by various Arcade goodies, like my cute little Kerfluffle sheep from Half+Deer. And my adorably messy Tableau Vivant hair!

Arcade Afterglow

All that pretend lever pulling makes an avatar hungry… thankfully MishMish had some yummy goodies in their machine, so I can have breakfast in my Scarlet Creative bed.

Breakfast In Bed

I made a lot of new friends… Intrigue and Schadenfreude have adorable little critters that just HAD to come home with me.

Bunbits & Kitts

Definitely be sure to check out this event… as usual it’s pretty freakin’ fantastic.

Nostalgia

Today is my 5th rezz day. I’m kind of shocked by the fact that I lasted three weeks in SL, let alone five years. But I’m so grateful I did, because I have made some incredible friends during this journey. There’s my BFF Rosa. We’ll be friends 5 years on February 4th, and I can tell her absolutely anything. I know she’ll keep all my secrets safe. There’s my “forever” sister, my fellow “Posh Orphan,” Isley who is like… some freaky extension of myself in all the best ways. All of my awesome Plurk friends, who are always ready to give hugs and support, and who tolerate my crazy posts. And most of all, my incomparable RL husband, with whom I began this journey five years ago. I’ve learned so much about myself through my SL experiences, and though there’s been hurt and heartache, I consider myself fortunate that it’s been primarily a very positive experience.

So, maybe you’ve guess I’m feeling a little nostalgic today, huh? Well, that makes it a perfect time to show off some of the items from January’s edition of Collabor88, which has a theme and color palette that is designed to inspire feelings of nostalgia. My shirt and tie are both from Tres Blah’s offerings for Collabor88. My hair is a recent release from Truth, and I love the long, sleek ponytail. It’s versatile, and would work for more casual looks, as well as more professional, dressier styles. This is something I always love in my fashion pieces. The skirt is from Baiastice for FaMESHed. My shoes are from fri.day for Collabor88… more on those in a moment!

Nostalgia

I’m also wearing the pre-release of the new skin Magenta from Glam Affair. This gorgeous skin is in a new tone – Asia – that I just love. This sneak peek at the Magenta skin is available at The Seasons Story. In this picture, you can also see my beautiful earrings from Cae for the next round of Enchantment, which opens on February 1st. My eyes are from IKON’s Promise line, currently available only at FaMESHed. This line is my favorite yet from IKON, and I’m especially loving the brown shades.

Magenta by Glam Affair

I wanted to show off my sassy manicure, courtesy of Flair for the SLink hands. And here’s a better look at my Miranda shoes by fri.day. These are the first fri.day shoes for use with the High SLink feet, and I really, really love them. They are so elegant, and I’ve always been a fan of the look of ankle straps.

Details matter...

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
