Lost Little Lamb

Let’s just get three things out there. 1. I am so not a “neat freak (not that there’s anything wrong with being one… tbh I kind of wouldn’t mind a little of it myself!). 2. I have ADD, and so when I do get uh a bit obsessive about something, it can become an extreme thing. 3. Despite my general laissez faire attitude towards clutter, one place where the ADD takes over is my computer’s desktop. You can see what it looks like currently here, if you’re intrigued.

The shortcut on my desktop is there to remind me to try to learn to vlog by watching Berry’s tutorial on the topic. Once I actually try it, that shortcut will go. I hate shortcuts on my desktop. You may also notice that I have a folder called “SL Pics.” My blogging routine goes like this. I take photos and they save to my desktop. I pick the ones to edit, and the rest go in the trash. I edit the ones I’ve kept. They then stay on my desktop until I blog them, to help remind me to do it. Except, this time the photo Lucie Had A Little Lamb accidentally got put into my folder before I blogged it… which brings me to the title of this post. Poor little lamb was lost and never blogged. I realized it going through my photostream this morning and it was a major facepalms sort of moment. So, without further ado…

Lucie had a little lamb

Bird Watching

The second I saw this adorable prop that oOo Studio released for The Seasons Story I knew I had to grab it. It’s a little vignette and it’s so cute. I decided to watch some cute little birds out the window while wearing my owl print Cupcake leggings from Blueberry. These leggings have the most amazing butt… seriously. This pic even got invited to a group on Flickr called Super butts of SL, and I was so proud. I feel like my butt needs a cape now. Anyway, back to the leggings… I fatpacked them (or really a friend sent them to me as a gift, to be accurate about it) and Blueberry recently added an upgrade to the fatpack that included something like 50 additional prints. It’s INSANE and totally well worth the investment if you’re big on leggings! I paired the leggings with boots from Just Because and a cute cropped sweater from Neve. I felt like I need a bird watching pal, so I rezzed a little kitten from JIAN.

Bird Watching

My hair is Ari from Truth, and this comes with a version without bangs but I’ve always loved straight, blunt bangs so they were a must for me! I did this second picture on January 20th, after seeing Hextraordinary’s adorable Courting Candle release for Fifty Linden Fridays. I thought if ever there was a day that we needed a little extra light in the world, it was the day Trump was inaugurated. My skin is a new release from Pink Fuel, Sabine. It has a bento version for the Catya head from Catwa, but I don’t have that head so I’m wearing the non-bento version on Dyana. I think it’s adorable, and as always it comes with so many options. Mochi really gives you so much for your money with her appliers/skins! My eyes are new from Buzzeri, and can be found at The Epiphany. I’m wearing the rare Storm shade, but all of them are lovely. I am also using the Vista bento hands in these pics.

Tumble in the hay

The title of this post is inspired by the stunning Tumble head from Catwa. I want to say this is a “new” release, but with how quickly she’s been releasing gorgeous new heads, it’s not that new anymore! So we’ll call it a “recent” release instead. What I love about Tumble is that it has this elegance and sophistication to it. Clean lines, smaller eyes than some of her more recent heads, a lovely nose… it feels very mature. And it works well with so many of the appliers I’ve tried it with so far! In this pic I am wearing Merry from DeeTaleZ in Nordic, and I think it lends a bit of soft sweetness to this face. I’m also wearing one of Exile’s two new releases for the current round of Collabor88.

Tumble in the hay

My cute top is also at Collabor88, from Blueberry. It comes in a wide variety of colors and the cropped tank underneath can be turned off and recolored, too, via the HUD. My comfy cords are new from Neve, and there are four color options. You can also hide the belt. You’ll find this – along with the rest of the first of Neve’s autumn collection – at their Mainstore. Finally, the shoes I’m wearing are by Reign (also at Collabor88) and… omg they look like they’d be so soft and comfy to actually wear in RL. And I say this as a devout (RL) shoe hater!

Harvest Time

On a final note, the talented Prue Genira is accepting clients for photography and did this gorgeous pic of me last night. It came out so pretty I had to ask if it would be okay to include here. If you’re in need of a new profile pic or portrait, definitely check out Prue’s work!

Carnal Innocence

Blueberry has this stunning Mykonos lingerie gacha for The Arcade. There are lots of options to win, and I particularly liked the rare robe. I’ve been playing around with my various Catwa heads lately, and I realized I’d never blogged Amy yet. I found a skin applier (Daria) at Insol that I simply adore on this head. There’s something so sweet but sexy about this face. The wide eyes, the pouty mouth. And I love it with the freckles, but you get both freckles and non-freckled versions.

I wanted a scene that felt indulgent and lush, and the natatorium at Blithe was perfect for that.

Carnal Innocence

My hair is also an Arcade release, from Exile. As usual, there are two styles in the Exile gacha. Both are dramatic, very over-the-top and tons of fun, but I particularly love the windblown, messy, just had a tumble in bed look of this one, which is called Hot. And man, is it ever!

She’s marrying Bru.

Summer Sisters by Judy Blume has long been my favorite (stand alone, anyway) book. I bought it as a new release, in hardcover, back in 1998. It was quite the luxury purchase, even though as an immediate best seller, Barnes & Noble had it discounted pretty heavily. It was the first hardcover book I ever bought new, not counting textbooks.

I have read it every summer since. Sometimes I read it more than once in a year. I have passages of it memorized. I think of it randomly, and sometimes quote it before even realizing where the quote is from. Suffice it to say, I love this book.

I’ve wanted to do this scene, one of the most powerful in the book, for as long as I can remember. My first alt in SL was named Vix (the nickname of the character I am portraying here). And finally, after I finished reading it this summer, I decided it was time to just get it done!

"She's marrying Bru."

Also, if you haven’t read the book, this is something you find out in the prologue, though the actual scene portrayed above happens later in the book. So it’s not a spoiler, and you can still pick the book up and read it. And I highly recommend it, but I’m obviously biased.

You may have noticed a lack of blogging here lately. A lot has been happening in RL, but the main challenge I’ve had is issues with our ISP CenturyLink. We’re having exactly the kinds of problems SL most hates… latency and packet loss. Blah. It means I spend a lot of time in SL with things constantly rebaking, and that makes picture taking a challenge. They’re working on it. It’s somewhat better. But that’s why things have been quiet here of late. Hoping that changes, and soon!

Bubbly

This is the first of my Hair Fair 2016 posts. This fabulous event is open, and of course part of the proceeds from every sale will go to Wigs For Kids. It’s a great cause, with a ton of hair designers. There’s something to suit everyone’s tastes there, so definitely check it out. You can find all of the information you need, including a map, on the official blog. I’m wearing one of ISON’s lovely releases – Marie – in these photos. I’m also wearing one of Catwa’s newer head releases, Dyana, with the Bambi applier that Pink Fuel released for it at Kawaii Project.

starts in my toes and I crinkle my nose

My cute little dress is from Blueberry, and the strappy, sexy heels I’m wearing are from Glamistry. This adorable pose, which comes with the bubbles prop you see, is from Infiniti and is available at The Season’s Story. I’m using the Trompe Loleil Zohra Oasis, which is available at the current round of Uber. You have a few more days before this round closes and there are lots of awesome items there, so go check it out.

Here’s a better look at the shoes! The BBQ set you see in all three pics is from Dynasty’s release for The Epiphany. It’s a super cute set, and one of many amazing things you can find at this round of the event!

Finally, here’s the YouTube video that inspired two of the titles of these pics.

Almost summer

I did this pic before I left for vacation, and called it “Spring Stroll.” But it’s almost summer now, and even here at 9,000 feet in Colorado, it feels like it! We finally have leaves on our aspens and wildflowers are blooming… and it’s really lovely.

In Second Life, I found a lovely spring scene at Blithe, and decided that this top from Just Because suited my mood. It’s summery but also very boho, and I looooove all the boho stuff that’s come out lately. Plus, hello boobs! It’s super sexy! The skirt is from Blueberry and the sandals are fri.day. True story… I hate shoes in RL, but I kind of wish I had these sandals in RL. That’s saying something!

My hair is from Exile at The Arcade, one of two styles you can win. My adorable corgi companion is also at The Arcade, from Jian. The stunning necklace I have on is from Cae, and I promise to get a closer shot of this one because it has a star and I love stars. But in the meantime, you can check it out yourself at FaMESHed.

Spring Stroll

Happy Friday everyone!
