Rack ’em up!

I really wanted a t-shirt type dress because of Thomas Rhett’s song T-shirt. I mentioned that to Annie Melson, the talented creator behind Just Because and she liked the idea enough to do it! It’s called the Zoe T-Shirt Dress and it’s really freakin’ cute, as you’ll see below. I paired it with the special edition Harper clogs fri.day released for the Pulse Fundraiser. If you haven’t heard about this yet, it’s a great event to raise money to help the victims from the horrific shooting that took place in Orlando last month. Some really amazing designers have come together to donate their talent to help raise money. On top of that, there are auction boards… but more about that in just a minute. I wandered over to Blithe and found this really awesome scene. It was sort of dark and moody and sexy and it suited my mood and my outfit perfectly, I felt. I hopped up on the pool table, and while this table (from Apple Fall) does have built in poses, I decided to use a recent release from Infiniti for the pic instead.

Rack 'em up

My adorable hair is from Truth and it includes a version with a cat ears headband that’s just cute as hell. You can find it at The Fantasy Collective’s special After Dark round through July 15th. I’m wearing one of Catwa’s more recent mesh head releases, Helena. I love this face so much, and DeeTaleZ created an applier for it that is so beautiful it’s actually why I bought the head! The applier is called Fable. I have a LOT of mesh heads and appliers at this point, but this is probably my favorite combination yet. My necklace is from Cae’s current FaMESHed release, and it’s really lovely. I decided to mix up the metals and am wearing a combo of silver and rose gold. There’s also a choker that has gems and earrings available to go with this.

Scarlet Hustler

Okay, so now about the Pulse auction boards. There are a bunch of talented creators and photographers, along with some date boards… you can win some time with someone or win some amazing prizes. Like Blueberry fatpacks for life. It’s definitely worth checking out. Yours truly even has a board, and if you bid on me and win you’ll get early access to Whimsical, before it’s open to the public for a lag free shopping experience. I’ll also do your profile picture, and give you L$2500 in store credit at Repose, the pose store I co-own with my husband. And Sanura Snowpaw, who owns Somnia, generously added L$2500 in store credit to my board. It’s all for a good cause… 100% of the proceeds go to the fund set up by Equality Florida. So even if you don’t bid on me, consider checking out the boards and bidding on someone else!

And now, I’ll leave you with this…

Drifting…

So, the Tannebaum holiday market is still going and if you love Christmas and haven’t yet been to this event, you really need to check it out. It’s full of adorable seasonal goodies. Like the coat and top I’m wearing here from Bad Unicorn Clothing! I went for festive colors, but there’s a wide assortment available, so if you’re not that into Christmas, it’s still worth a visit! You can also check Seraphim’s post for a sneak peek. My cozy boots are from fri.day and can be found at N21 through December 11th. These are unrigged and can be resized, so do try a demo. I have a fairly curvy av and I was thrilled I was able to get them to fit me without much difficulty at all. My hair is by Tableau Vivant, and is available at The Fantasy Collective’s birthday round, which ends December 15th!

Snowdreaming

My beautiful Catwa applier is Maddison from DeeTaleZ. I snagged it during the Black Friday sale, but it’s so pretty I’d say it’s well worth paying full price, too. The cute little bow ring is from Cae. And I took these pics with poses built into the Chez Moi Romantic ski lift (which my lovely friend Krisy gifted to me), which is really cute for winter! It has loads of single and couple poses, and it’s texture change, too.

PS. Both my jacket and hair have versions for male avs, too!

Entrapped

The past few weeks I have been in a fibromyalgia flare from hell. There’s no better way to put it. It’s been wearing me down, but I find my release in being creative. So, I decided to do a picture that captured how I’ve been feeling of late.

I am wearing the absolutely stunning Annabelle gown from Just Because and Tableau Vivant’s sleek and lovely Gloomy hair, which is at the current round of The Fantasy Collective. I took the photo at Blithe, which as you probably already know, is one of my favorite places to take pics.

Puppies’ Paranormal Pizza Party!

One Autumnal night, Seamus the shiba inu found himself the unwilling pup sitter of his three younger siblings, Shawn, Shannon and Shelia. You see, the pups had discovered their house was haunted! Their human begged them to come spend the night with her outside in the tent, but the pups had other ideas! A paranormal pizza party with their new friends! So, Seamus was left in charge of the others. Sheila ordered the pizzas. Shannon tried to dress up as a ghost herself, but it didn’t quite work out as planned. Shawn poked his head out the window to try to get one of the other ghosts to join them inside… and after consuming a hearty helping of candy corn, Seamus fell asleep with a good book on the spooky rug in front of the pumpkin fireplace. He hadn’t the heart to tell Shawn, Shannon and Sheila that ghosts don’t eat, but he trusted his siblings were up to the task of devouring the pizzas on their own!

It was a fantastical night, except maybe for the shibas’ poor human, who was more than a tiny bit frightened of all the paranormal partying. But even she managed a good night’s sleep, tucked inside her cozy, starry tent.

It was an autumn night not soon to be forgotten!

The end.

Puppies' Paranormal Pizza Party

Cheeky Pea released this incredible Halloween Kitsch set for Uber’s new round, which was a Designer’s Choice edition. It’s absolutely adorable, and I’m not using all of it here, either. Definitely check it out for your Halloween decorating needs.

The pups are half Theosophy and the other two are Half-Deer. Both are available at the current round of The Arcade, which is coming to close soon!

This beautiful, one room cottage is a new release from DaD Designs for The Fantasy Collective. There are two versions of The Bayou Cottage, and one includes a deck. Sadly, I live in the sky so I am using the version without. However, what I really love about this house is how versatile it feels. While I can absolutely imagine it in a bayou, it works well in my mountain country inspired sky, too. The beautiful, pumpkin filled fireplace is a Collabor88 release from Pilot, and I absolutely had to have it.

Out the window, you can see me, sleeping in one of Sway’s adorable tents from The Arcade. This is one of the rares, but they’re all beautifully done and definitely must haves! I am wearing new releases from Neve by coldLogic. I will be blogging this outfit in full detail later this week, but the top is breeze, in the lively option and the leggings are zeezee, also in the lively version. Stay tuned to see a full, closer snap of this in a few days!

Til the cows come home

Let’s talk about cows. I know that’s probably a strange first sentence to an SL blog, but I promise it will all make sense soon. Or, well. To me, anyway. I can’t promise it will make sense to you. But give me a try!

In RL I live not far from a ranch. And every year, right around my birthday in late February, there are newborn calves. Our second year here, my husband mistakenly called them “mooborns” as a joke, and I squealed in delight. Now “mooborn” season is highly anticipated by all. Or at least by me, and possibly by the pregnant cows and the ranch owners. Not so sure my husband highly anticipates the squealing of “MOOBORNS” every time we pass, along with delighted shrieks of “ohmygawd they are SO TINY!” What can I say, I’m a child at heart. Besides, this thing with cows began with my father. My father was a man of many faults, but one of the more endearing (and yeah, okay sometimes frustrating) qualities he had was this childlike joy of life, this ability to be so silly and make us laugh. When we were little kids, he’d take us to The Land Of Make Believe in Hope, New Jersey. Hope is in a part of New Jersey few people realize exists. It’s beautiful, as rural as you get in a state that small and with that many people, and it’s full of farmland (or was, I imagine there’s been some build up). It’s near the Delaware River, and it will always remain a very special place in my heart. But as you might imagine, there are some cows in that area. And when we drove by them with our dad, he’d cry out “MOOOOOOOOOO!” It became a thing. So as silly as my “mooborns” thing might be, or as silly as it may be when we drive by at Christmas and I say “Moory Christmas, cows,” it also makes me happy. It’s like some sort of weird tribute to my dad, a way to remember happier times with him, and I know he’d approve and probably join in, if he were here to do so.

So, as you might imagine, when Dysfunctional Designs recently released cows, I was delighted. See? I told you it would all come together. I already have the Dysfunctional Designs chickens (their clucking sometimes might make my poor husband crazy), with their adorable (and texture change) hen house. And I recently built a pen for my Half-Deer Kerfluffle collection (or at least some of them). So of course, I needed a pasture for my cows. Which, by the way, MOO! They actually moo (both the cow moos and chicken clucks can be turned off, btw). They also swish their tails, and lower their heads, as if to graze. They’re texture change with a bunch of color options, including a couple not seen below. Oh, and there is a static, non-mooing version with built in animations. So if you’ve ever wanted to sit on, sleep on or hang out on a cow, here’s your chance. I’m sitting on Ethel below. The official name given by Dysfunctional is Bessie, btw. But of course, they can’t ALL be called Bessie! I am obsessed with naming things, and so is my sister Isley. So I named the white cow Bella, the grey cow Tess. Isley named the rest. Ethel is the one I am sitting on, Martha is the solid black one, the red and white one is Beverly and Bessie is the black and white one. I know you really wanted to know all of that. Just be glad I didn’t share the chickens’ names. And yes, they have them.

What is she doing to Ethel!?

Okay, enough about cows. Let’s talk about my outfit next. I’m wearing a new(ish) release from coldLogic. This was their first release designed to be mesh body friendly. I’m not wearing it with the mesh body here, but it did work nicely with my Maitreya and SLink bodies. I’m also wearing one of the releases from the newly opened FATEstep, the Ziggy chucks. Finding cute sneakers in SL is such a challenge, and these are awesome! The FATEstep shoes have so many color options via the HUD, and these include versions for system feet, so if you’re not into mesh bodies or body parts, and have been frustrated trying to find shoes, check out what FATEstep has to offer. Not all of their shoes include system feet versions, but some do!

My skin is Izzie’s latest full release, Romy. This lovely skin was released at Skin Fair, but is now available at Izzie’s Mainstore. I look so sweet and innocent, and no matter what anyone might tell you, it’s not a lie. 😀 Again I am wearing Truth’s new Flynn hair. I know I just blogged this, and I pretty much never repeat something that fast (if at all), but I am really in love with this hair. After hanging out with the cows, I needed a break, so I took shelter in my floorplan sleepover tent.

Sunset Solitude

If you’d like to party until the cows come home, or better yet, party with some cows, go get your bovine fix at The Fantasy Collective. The pack of cows is just L$145 which is an amazing deal for how detailed they are and with the texture options.
