How We Roll

howweroll_600

Over time, you might find those brands who slowly creep their way into your inventory’s heart, filling it up. And then there’s others, who do it more rapidly, because every release is something you must have. Addams is the latter, because not only is the rigging so well with my Maitreya Lara body, the styles are just so on point. Especially this top from the current round at Collabor88 (which hopefully should be… maybe? less crowded now that it’s been two days, but I don’t know – it was insane getting in!) It’s made to go over the bikini top that’s also on sale, but easily can be worn without. It matches perfectly with the not-new-but-new-to-me worn jeans at the mainstore location.

Now, I’m not really sure which category Lamb falls into; I just know that over the years, I’ve collected a ton of her hair. And definitely added two more that are out now at C88. One drapes a little more over the face (shown), the other a bit more off of the face, and both with these loose waves I wish I could pull off in RL.

Electric Boogaloo

electric600

I think since I started this blog 3+ years ago, I’ve wanted to use that title. And while it’s sadly for a post inspired by Breakin’ 2, it is inspired by what’s actually been among my favorite rounds of Uber so far! And I wasn’t sure what to expect; neon and Miami can go a few different ways. But I bought so much, and I just wanna wear it all… all the time! But I’m a child of the 80’s, neon is in our blood, isn’t it?

To Be Queen

queen600

We’re week two into both Pose Fair 2015 and the new season of Game of Thrones, both of which make this pose prop from Project Puppet so very fitting. I saw it, and immediately thought of Cersei’s battle for control, something she used to be very good at. I unfortunately know a bit more than I wanted to about where her story is headed (must be careful reading wikipedia!), but I’m excited to see how the TV show takes it nonetheless. And yes, perhaps one day, I’ll sit my butt down and read the books (…tell that to my bookshelf full of ‘to reads’). Head on down to Pose Fair to grab this before it’s too late!

Also, as if fate, Berry‘s Monday Meme for the week is.. TV Show! Check out her post and create your own on a blog, flickr, or any medium you choose!

Continuing on with Pose Fair 2015, I found this awesome prop from Everglow. There’s actually a series of them, ranging from ones you hold, stand on, and sit (single sit, displayed above). They work well for decorating a scene, like how they sit under Grace & I while using Verocity‘s adorable new Girlfriends pose!

RIDIC Poses has a few new sets out that I love, especially this triple set Tripsie. It’s perfect for showcasing what me & these two lovely ladies emptied our wallets on at this round of Collabor88! I also found a new-to-me designer, Nata Poses, with a number of static poses that I bought for future poses. Check them out – Pose Fair 2015 is open until April 25th!

This Bird Has Flown

letthoselegsshow600

I know some of you are stuck in lower temperatures still, but down here in the South, mid-70s and sunshine are making every venture outdoors lovely. Though, admittedly, also brief, because… allergies, too. Anyway, ColdLogic was right on cue, recently unveiling a line of spring dresses that you can pick up right at the main store. Truth, too.. releasing a hair tailor made for warm breezy days. It’s over at Uber, and comes both with and without the hat!

The Hour Adjustment

daylight600

Five days later, and I finally feel right again after the Daylight Savings switch. I grew up without it, so this has been an adjustment for the past three years (though I gather most never truly handle the Spring Forward very well!) The morning is far too bright now, but thank goodness, I have coffee at the ready.

I jumped at the chance to grab these new jeans from Pixicat last Friday. The high cut + long pant bootcut is so cute, and feeds my inner bohemian. There was a pair up for FLF last week, if you were lucky enough to grab them, but fear not! The price isn’t much more, and they’re sooo worth it!

So It Goes

soitgoes600

I used to love when my parents lived downtown. For a few years, they lived on the 12th floor of an old apartment building, and given Phoenix isn’t terribly tall, you could see for miles and miles. During the day, it was noisy, with people bustling to work or running to lunch. But at night, the city gets so quiet when you’re not near all the sports/concert arenas. SL’s balconies might be without the noise, but I like to think the effect is similiar. Or I just love to spy. #creeper

Speaking of SL-ing, I’m a bit late, but it’s not yet a new Monday, so I’m still on time enough for this week’s Monday Meme from Berry!

1. Have you ever owned a sim in Second Life? – Not yet.
2. Have you ever created content in Second Life? – Yes, houses! Hoping to switch to mesh this year, and continue. We’ll see!
3. Have you ever driven a vehicle in Second Life? – I wouldn’t for a long time because I’d lag and run into things. But have since I got a better computer in 2011, and I run into less things now?
4. Have you ever gone sky diving in Second Life? – Yes, back in my first few months in 2007. I befriended a girl who worked at a club, and her boss had an island. It was SUPER COOL… back then. >.>
5. Have you ever played a sport in Second Life? – No
6. Have you ever gone clubbing in Second Life? – Yes, but not for a few years. Once I got involved in RP, I haven’t regularly been anywhere else.
7. Have you ever fangirled/fanboyed someone in Second Life? – Yes, anytime I see a Linden!
8. Have you ever taken a picture of your avatar in water in Second Life? – Too many times.
9. Have you ever taken a picture of a sunset in Second Life? – Yes, moreso after I got that newer computer and could actually see the water glistening. Prior, my settings were all on Low, and everything just looks awful on Low.
10. Have you ever taken a nude picture of your avatar in Second Life? – Yes… too many/not enough times?
11. Have you ever dated in Second Life? – Yes. One went into RL and now we live together. Huzzah!
12. Have you ever had or attended a wedding in Second Life? – I’ve attended both SL and RP weddings, but never had my own and don’t really plan to have one.
13. Have you ever drank, smoked or taken drugs in Second Life? – Only in roleplay.
14. Have you ever engaged in sexual activity in Second Life? – Who, meee? Mebbe. (Yes)
15. Have you ever been to Bukkake Bliss in Second Life? – Yes, back in the day. Is that still around? Crazy!

Be sure to head over to Kustom9 before this current round is up! KITJA and Bueno are only two of the many stores who took all my money this month (a few times over!) The latter even comes with a version to fit over the Maitreya mesh body I cannot seem to take off.

What Now?

whatnow600

“He walked out in the gray light and stood and he saw for a brief moment the absolute truth of the world. The cold relentless circling of the intestate earth. Darkness implacable. The blind dogs of the sun in their running. The crushing black vacuum of the universe. And somewhere two hunted animals trembling like ground-foxes in their cover. Borrowed time and borrowed world and borrowed eyes with which to sorrow it.”
