Call Me ~Blondie~

This is one thing that isn’t around much anymore! There used to be payphones everywhere, a big row of them for anyone who needs to make a phone call. When I was on the road it was at a time when cell phones weren’t exactly cheap to have and taking my Canadian phone down into the States just wasn’t affordable. So, I was left with the only option, using pay phones when making phone calls. And it wasn’t just for calling home, I had to make calls all the time to say I’m coming to deliver your stuff or that I’m coming to pick up your stuff! 😀 It wasn’t easy for me to make cold calls. I’m one of those people that says, ‘Why would you call me when you can text?’. But, back in those days I’d make regular calls to people I didn’t know, and I will admit I did get used to it after awhile. Now, is a different story though! I just can’t make myself answer my phone when it rings, I MIGHT if I see it’s someone I know and there’s something that needs my attention….maybe! But if it’s an unknown caller I just kind of chuckle to myself….that person doesn’t have a chance in h*ll of me answering it, and they don’t even know it! If you want to chat, send me a text, or an email, or maybe just send your thoughts my way and keep your fingers crossed that I get them…that’s about the only way I’m available, most days.

It’s Friday and in honour of the occasion I’m wearing the ‘Ellie Lace Jeans’ from LEGAL INSANITY! These are just so happy looking, who could be down while wearing this much lace in combination with jeans! These are fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis, Freya) mesh bodies and are available at the current round of Tres Chic. There’s four denims and eighteen lace patterns and colours to select from and for me they all look happy!

The ‘Charged T Shirt,black,RARE’ is from Vinyl and part of the ‘Charged’ gacha set available now at The Epiphany. This is HUD driven with a plain black or this one that says, ‘You’re a Wizard, Harry’. All of the clothing in the set fits the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The ‘KIKYOU’ hair from Argrace is a new release and it has a couple styling options, which is a nice bonus. It comes in two pieces for easy fitting.

Under all that lace is the ‘Amy Stilettos’ from NX-Nardcotix. I’ll be showing you a closer look at them in the near future!

I’m wearing the ‘Byzantyne Necklace’ from !NFINITY, and I’m sorry you can’t see it much. It’s the free gift for the ‘Men Only Hunt 10’ which runs until October 28 with over 60 stores participating . It’s a HUD based hunt so drop in to the Flair for Events office, and get hunting! Here’s a good look at this necklace that is so worth hunting for.

This skin is ‘Raine’ from Avada, which will be available in November! This is one of my all time favourite skins….so be on the lookout here for it’s release! It’s being worn on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Amara’ set of poses from Imitation! I love it’s introspective look!

I’m at the ever popular ‘Mother Road‘ sim, home of the Mirage Motel 66!

Pennywise, from IT by ~Stephen King~

I really really dislike clowns….I don’t think there’s anything funny or happy about them. To me, they’re just flippin’ freaky! I haven’t seen the remake of the movie ‘IT’ from Stephen King’s book of the same name. As a rule I don’t watch scary movies, I guess you could say I scare easily. I’ve read the book though and although not my favourite SK book, it is a good one! As if clowns needed more proof that they can’t be trusted….I think clowns have always had a dark side and this just makes them plain evil. After thinking about it for a couple minutes I don’t think that the clowns from a rodeo are creepy, they’re just doing their job and actually have made a sport out of it, the bullfighters in Spain could learn a thing or two from the bullfighters here! There’s no blood, unless it’s the guy’s fighting the bull, and the bull does have the upper hand! Still, clowns generally have a bad reputation and I’m not sure it can be turned around…….I mean, clowns didn’t get this reputation from nothing happening!

A new round of anyBODY has begun and LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Liza Ripped Jeans’ exclusive to the event. They come in three colours of denim and are sold individually or in a fatpack and the chains can be silver or gold, or removed all together! I’ve always loved LEGAL INSANITY jeans and these don’t disappoint. They have it all…perfect butt, bare skin, and perfect detailing! This round of anyBODY runs until October 15.

The ‘Fight Til the End’ Tolman tank is from Vinyl and exclusive to the ForMax event. This is a fundraiser for a fellow SL’er who has come upon some difficult times. It runs until October 10.

The ‘July’ shoes are from JuJu and are fitted for the SLink, Maitreya and Belleza high feet. There’s an added anklet that I’m not wearing here.

The ‘Lexie’ hair from +elua+ is part of the October round of PocketGacha. This is a great monthly stay-at-home event that makes playing gacha so easy! This is the cafe colour and the gacha includes ‘Lexie’ and ‘Lakia’ hair each with six common and one RARE to play for. The current round of PocketGacha runs until October 14. You can get more info on PocketGacha here.

As usual I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose it ‘RockIt’ from the ‘Photobooth 2’ set of poses from [KoKoLoReS]. They’re bento enabled for the face and hands.

I’m at Arranmore for this picture, and once I had my shot, I was outa there! Spooky!

Orange Makes Me Happy!

Orange Makes Me Happy!

There’s a colour for every mood, and for me orange is happy! I don’t care what tone it is, light, dark, or otherwise, I just love orange! Needless to say, I love all of autumn’s colours! The rich greens, golds, and browns comfort me! Only Mother Nature can decorate the world and not have any colours clash! At this time of year, as the leaves fall and the grass dies, the prairie’s colour palette is rich in all tones of brown, yellow, and red! Everything is still hanging on, ever so slightly, to summer’s growth! A month from now and everything will have faded to all the shades of grey, which makes the short days of winter all the more somber! But, I enjoy fall for as long as it lasts, even though today all the wonderful colours are buried under a foot of snow! Fall will return in a couple days……I hope!

I love wearing orange, but when I saw the HUD for the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE], I had a hard time choosing! The skirt comes in either the black fades or light fades and they’re on sale for the month of October for Buy Now! Buy Now is a sale event solely on Market Place, so there’s no lag to bog you down! These skirts come in five sizes and fitted for the Maitreya, Lara and SLink, Hourglass and Physique mesh bodies. You can drop in at the [QE] main store and check out some new releases too!!

The 4th of October has brought a new round of The Chapter Four! I’m always eager to see what purely perfect poses Le Poppycock has come up with! There are two packs of the Cherry Wine pose sets and also two couples poses! The Love Connection couples poses are absolutely adorable, and it’s times like these I need a man……to help me show them off!

It’s fairly early in the October round of Designer Showcase, but there’s no time like the present to do some retail therapy! DaneMarkZ has the Fashionably Dead nail applier, exclusive to Designer Showcase! The nail applier is Omega and Maitreya compatible and has a dozen colours to choose from….orange included as you can see!

I love this tattoo! It’s the In The Shadows Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t, and like all the rest from PMS, it’s super detailed, original, and has just a bit of attitude! The tattoo is classic avatar and Omega and TMP mesh body compatible and comes in three ink tones! I’m always a medium tone kind of girl!!

I’m wearing the Jackson Wedge/Tiptoe Sneakers again, and this time around there’s a close up so you can see the great details! They’re from Mesh Agency, on Market Place, and are HUD driven with lots of colours to choose from! They’re compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, TMP, and Eve mesh feet and also classic avatars!

The Staley Top is from Vinyl.

I love the hair and cap combination from BesomxFlite! This is from the blacks pack.

As always, I am the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I’m in a sketchy part of town at After The Fall for these pictures!

How Are Ya?

How Are Ya?

We’re a nice people, us Canadians! We’re just so damn polite! But, there’s one thing that started happening a bunch of years back that irks me! The basic ‘hello’ greeting, that is such a standard, has now become, ‘hey…how are ya?’! It may seem like a pretty straightforward thing, it’s just a simple question that doesn’t require much thought into an answer, but there’s a few things one needs to know! Firstly, the question does NOT require a truthful answer. The asker doesn’t want to know that your cat has worms and your late on your house payment! Also, it’s a question that is said without any thought or care of what the answer will be! Most of the time they’re not asking because they care…it’s just something one says! Case in point…..I’m sitting in the little room waiting for the doctor to arrive. I’m there because I obviously need to see the doctor, otherwise why would I be sitting in that room! The doctor knocks and slips in and says, “Hello…how are you?” Now….it’s a tad confusing because I’m obviously not ‘fine’! I’m at the doctor’s office….so what’s the right answer to this? Do I start in on my rehearsed presentation on why I need to see the doctor or do I remain a polite Canadian and say, “I’m good…how are you?” Well, I usually go with the second option. I’m then hoping that the doctor will ask what has brought me here! Which they usually do! But, it could all be so easy if everyone just said, ‘hello’!! It requires nothing in return other than the same back, it’s stress free, and it negates the risk of getting an honest answer from people that misunderstand the whole concept! So…if you see me somewhere…just hanging out shopping or something…say hi…but please…please….leave it at that!

I’m going to start off this tour of Second Life fashion with a stop at nails on my very casual SLink hands! The Moss Gloss nail appliers from Hello Dave is one of my new favourites! I love green and the moss shades are particularly fetching to me! BTW….a new VIP group gift has been released so stop in a grab it!

The Heritage Tattoo is an intricate design for the chest and arms from Pimp My Sh!t!  The PMS tattoos come with the tattoo layer for classic avatars plus applier HUDs for Omega and TMP,  with three ink tones to select from! For the Heritage Tattoo along with a whole lot of other goodies check out the PMS main store!

The Hand Stitched Leather Leggings from lassitude & ennui are perfect for any type of outdoor activities!  They’re soft yet durable and look great, especially with boots!  They come in the pants layer for classic avi’s plus appliers for SLink and Maitreya!

I’d like to show off one of my latest purchases that were hugely extravagant for me!  The Moccasin Boots from Maitreya were way over my budget, but I justified it by saying I’d wear them all the time!  So be prepared to see these babies with just about everything else I blog!  JK!!

The Mary hair is a collaboration between Mina Hair and !APHORISM! and it’s a match made in heaven!  The stylish hat is HUD driven with four colour options and the hair comes in packs of five!  Mary is a gacha which premiered at the last round of The Seasons Story but will likely be in the main stores now.

The Esther skin in European tone is from DeeTaleZ.

The Staley Top is from Vinyl.

Poses by the lovely Olivia from Le Poppycock!

A trip to Hazardous is always good for the soul!

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Easter

Happy Easter

I’d like to wish all of my faithful readers and followers a very Happy Easter! It’s a little earlier in the year than usual, but it makes spring seem that much closer! No, it’s not quite spring yet in my little corner of the world, but we are getting there! The first crow has returned, the robins are here again and the geese are flying over in droves, but there’s no singing of frogs or salamanders coming from the slough yet and nothing has actually grown so far. When I see the first sign of green, be it weeds, grass, or one of the ever hardy perennials in the garden, then I’ll say, “Spring has sprung!”.

I donned a pair of ears for the occasion! I know it’s not original, but I did try! The ears are the Luxury Faux Rabbit Ears from Sweet Thing! This is from the RARE HUD.

I want to show you the newest release from {MYNX}! It’s the Cargo Heart Skirt and it’s a nice comfy mini that isn’t so short your hoo haa shows! I like that! It comes in packs of two, with a plain version (khaki seen here), and one with a lively little heart design. It comes in eight colours and is available at the {MYNX} main store!

The MAGNOLIA Heels are the most recent release from GLAMISTRY. They come in oodles of colours but the fatpack has all the options a shoe lover could want! They’re SLink, Maitreya and Belleza compatible!

I chose a gorgeous pink for my nails! It’s from the Tender Heart set from FLIPPANT! The pack contains six designs and is at a super reasonable price! A great pedi is so important! 🙂

The lovely Yasmine skin in Bronze tone is from .::WoW Skins::. and is the exclusive to the Skin Fair 2016. It’s the last day of the Skin Fair today, but Yasmine will be at the main store after that.

The Annalee hair is from Dameselfly.  It’s available at The Fantasy Collective.

The Mumford Top from Vinyl is from a gacha from the Luck of the Irish Gacha Fair, which ends today. I’m sure the gacha will be at the main store after today, though.

The incredible pose is from the Reverberation A pack from Le Poppycock, and, like always, perfect!

I revisited Maison de L’amitie for these pictures.
