Unmellow Yellow

The color for this week’s 52 Weeks of Color challenge was “unmellow yellow.” I don’t own a lot of yellow. I’m sort of fussy about the color. There simply aren’t a lot of yellow shades I like, and generally I prefer the softer colors. Despite being called “unmellow,” I found this color to be one of the more gentle yellows.

I claimed these boots as part of my prize for coming in second in the recent Truth District style contest. They are from Miel, and I knew I had to have them when I saw them. They are a perfect match for this adorable hair from Elikatira.

I took these pics at T Town… it’s such a perfect sim for this look, and it’s definitely a place worth exploring.

The Golden Peen Of Glory…

Okay, so initially I was only vaguely aware of the gift that the lovely Strawberry Singh had sent to the sweet Harlow Heslop. But the my dear friend (and fellow Venutian chicken creature lover) Lindsay showed me sneak peeks of her challenge pics that this gift had inspired. And thus, my desire to partake in Harlow’s Golden Peen contest was born. But I can’t do these sorts of things without a great deal of thought and (I like to think) creativity, so here is the “story” of the Golden Peen of Glory.

Rosalie Bouscario and I were walking on a beach. It was a lovely day… the weather was perfect. I was wearing my cute pink halter bikini from Sleeping Koala, and she had on her skimpy Hyper Culture bikini from days long past (she’s just bragging about how she can still wear it, tbh). We looked as hot as we felt in the summer sun. So, we wandered to the water’s edge, with every intention of taking a dip to cool off. Suddenly, we saw a giant, glowing, golden silhouette. We couldn’t quite make out what it was, so we wandered closer. Much to our amazement, it was a giant golden penis!

Baffled, but oddly enchanted we felt compelled to bow before it in worship. After all, this must be a gift from the gods. Maybe a sex god… but I digress. We felt it was only proper to show respect to the Golden Peen of Glory. We took our positions before its shimmering lust inspiring sparkle and I captured the moment forever in this picture.

Golden Peen Contest

But I was too enchanted. I wanted too much, too deeply. I sneaked back to the beach after Rosa had logged for the night. I took the Golden Peen of Glory home (lemme tell ya, carrying that thing wasn’t easy… thank the gods for TPs). We bonded over popcorn. Yes, I said popcorn. I sat it down on my adorable Cheeky Pea sofa, and we snuggled. We became very close that night. It was truly special…

Golden Peen Contest

And then Rosa surreptitiously came back online and popped in for a visit… and caught me in the act (of sharing popcorn, you pervs!). I was horrified and deeply ashamed. But really, what girl could resist the urge to better know this gift of the gods? Can you blame me?

Golden Peen Contest

But Rosa convinced me that a Golden Peen of Glory is not meant to be kept captive… so I returned it to the sea, and with a prayer of thanks to the gods that had blessed us with such a miracle, said goodbye. It was a sad moment, but I understand that this is one golden phallus that I just can’t keep (erm, not that I’ve ever kept a gold phallus or anything like that).

Golden Peen Contest

So long, my glittering friend… I will miss your shiny, sexy siren’s song.

Home & Garden Expo 2

Hello out there… I have another set of pics of things I picked up at the Home & Garden Expo. This time I am featuring two of my favorite SL stores… Cheeky Pea & Funky Junk.

Funky Junk had out this adorable outdoor set called Sweet Summer as one of the charity items. I snagged it right away. Hey, a good cause means less shopping guilt, right? And… good cause and all. To be honest, my grandmother is undergoing chemo right now for a rare form of lung cancer, so helping the RFL events financially or through blogging makes me feel like I’m doing something. This set is just so adorable, and it screamed “bikini time!” So, I threw on one of my Cool Beans “Bean-Kinis” and got posing. Alas, Cool Beans has closed, but Anyalia Pearl is working on a new store called Spright, so keep your eyes out for more adorableness from the oh-so-adorable Anya. She has a crazy cute dress out at Culture Shock that you’ve likely seen because everyone and their mommas’ been blogging it! And soon I will be, too. 😀 Now… less babbling, more pictures.

Funky Junk H & G Expo

Cheeky Pea has a ton of cuteness out at the H & G Expo… I wish I had room for big houses because there are so many cute ones, from Cheeky Pea to Funky Junk and many, many others. However, I only have a small sky platform over our store, so I have to work with that space. But I did pick up this adorable Fairfield desk set! It just seemed perfect for sitting down at as I work on my blog!

Cheeky Pea H & G Expo

I have more things to blog… but I’ve been under the weather, so it’s been slow going. However, you will get to see my 52 Weeks of Color post tomorrow or later today… and I’m doing Harlow Heslop’s Golden Peen blog challenge. Yeah, it’s what it sounds like. Sorta. 😛

Collabor88 May

I promised this post last week, and the pics were up on flickr, but we went on vacation and I just haven’t had a chance! I’ve also been spending time at the Home & Garden Expo this weekend… blogs on that to come later this week! So now, without further ado, Collabor88 for May.

I love reading. I love tea. Put them together, and I’m in heaven. So I just HAD to have this Cheeky Pea hammock. My skirt is from Hucci, and the top is from the Sea Hole. All are from this edition of Collabor88.

Minty Fresh - Collabor88

It’s just so darn cute… the poses are adorable and as always, the detail from Cheeky Pea is exquisite.

Reading...

After I spent a lazy afternoon reading and sipping tea, I primped for the camera to show off my new skin from Izzie’s. I saw this skin on someone’s flickr stream and just fell hard for it. I’m so impressed with how far Izzie Button has come with her skins. I once tried to make a skin. To say it went badly is a massive understatement. There’s plenty in SL to be impressed by, but I’m not sure anything impresses me quite the same way a talented skin creator does!

New Skin from Izzie's

The necklace is from Collabor88 by League. There are several variations on it, and it’s a great bargain. Also, one version has a moving sky! It’s really cool. I’m crazy about it!

More soon… have a great week. 🙂

Fibromyalgia Awareness Fair!

Okay, I know I said Collabor88 would be my next post, but this event is only three days long and it’s to help promote awareness of a disease I – and many others like me – live with every day. It’s a small event, but really cute. Every vendor also has a freebie out (some more than one!). It’s definitely well worth a quick visit, especially if you love purple! Purple is the “color” of fibromyalgia, so there is an awful lot of purple to be found at this fair.

I just had to ride the ferris wheel… but it’s big! And I might’ve been a little scared. So, I took my cute little teddy bear friend with me… he’s a gift from Ari-Pari! I’m also wearing freebies from Kosh… the tank and pants are both Fair gifts. I also bought a pack of sparkly eye shadows from Kosh, and the purple eye shadow I have on is one of them!

Fibromyalgia Awareness Fair 2012

Eventually, I worked up the guts to grab a seat… and boy, was it fun! My cute little neck pouch is a gift from Concrete Flowers!

Hang on tight...

After walking around and riding the ferris wheel, I was ready for some refreshments! So, I stopped to grab a snowcone! I got grape, so it would match my adorable nails, which are a gift from Virtual Insanity. There was also a chill in the air, so I threw on this lovely little hoodie from Insatiable Fashions.

Ahhh... snow cone

If you want to grab any of the gifts shown here, or shop the event and get more information about fibromyalgia, please visit the Fibromyalgia Awareness Fair 2012! The event runs through the weekend, and there are festivities to go with the shopping. Also, if you have fibromyalgia and want to be part of an SL support group, look for the Join signs or Subscriber Kiosks at the Fair. The Fibro Aware group has monthly meetings. I haven’t been able to attend any yet, but I do hope to in the near future!

PS. I may not get to blog again before we leave for our vacation… but there will be more soon!

Comfort

I have fibromyalgia. Those of you who follow me on Plurk know this. So when AliannaMarie GossipGirl (of Insatiable Fashions) told me about an SL event that is designed to help promote awareness of this disease, I knew I wanted to participate. Rad made this sweet friends pose for the event… it’s appropriately called “Comfort,” and I can assure you that the support of a good friend (or a great husband) can go a long way towards getting me through a bad day.

I had to shoot the pic for our vendor texture today, so I decided to edit a version to use here. I grabbed a friend who often models for our ads, and this is the result…

Comfort

For more information about the Fibromyalgia Awareness Day Fair 2012, please visit their site. Also, they are still accepting vendor applications for the event. There is no cost, but you do need to provide one freebie that is related to fibromyalgia. If you are interested in participating, contact Ariana Petrova in Second Life to get an application and more information.
