So Ridic

ridic01_600 ridic02_600

A big reason why I try not to blog too many event-specific items is because I find more often now that RL gets in my way of actually sitting down to hammer out posts before said event ends. Thankfully, quite a few items you can then find in store, just like these poses from RIDIC, just recently out at The Hottie Cooterati Experience‘s Rhapsody! Mixing singles, friends, and couples, you’ll find a very cute array of poses perfect for your pictures.

Game Day

gameday

The time has finally come for the World Cup again, and the day is here when USA begins their time in Brazil. So far, it’s been five days of Heaven for me, with game after game after game everyday… can’t all days be like this? Watching my personal favorites (outside of my own country), Germany, show off exactly why they are the best has already made my day. And tonight, we’ll see how far USA have come with a beloved German at the helm. I could go on and on, but let’s keep this short; Iran v Nigeria is on.

One of my favorite things I picked up from this round of Collabor88 has been these shorts from Maitreya. Often shorts don’t fit well with my shape’s hips + thigh combo, but these work perfectly! I’ve barely taken them off since the first! I’m also in love with these new cute shoes from Reign, reminding me of a pair I have sitting in my closet now. A final bit of brand newness – Truth released two styles last night, including this fantastically wavey ponytail. And, while not new, pick up your country tee from BOOM.

Swelter

When I say that I feel like summer is around the corner, I have to laugh at the notion that I even had much of a winter. The area I’m in only saw a few days below freezing, and while it’s probably silly for this Arizona native to expect anything cold out of November-February, I’ve decided just to give up. Bring on the beach! And the humidity… :/

52 Weeks of Color – Dark Raspberry

Two in a row, and before Saturday! Monumental for me, I’d say. New territory would be a good subtitle for this, as it’s inspired by something I’ve started to take up in RL: Meditation. I’m a true beginner, and I think I’ve done a very amateur, self guided version in the past. But, with the amount of items & goals I’ve been piling into my plate, I know that I’m going to need help relaxing and sleeping normally again. So far, I’m just using podcasts from Meditation Oasis off of itunes. Any tips are appreciated! Do you meditate?

52 Weeks of Color – Electric Indigo

Week 3!

They say some weeks will be harder than others, & this would be one of them. Partly because I thought I had a dress to go perfectly with the color, but alas! I must’ve deleted it in an inventory clearout. Ah, well. Excuse for something new. 🙂

One of the roleplay sims I’m active in is based on Harry Potter, which makes me quite dork, I know, but having something different has been awesome. The staff’s great, all the characters I’ve come across so far have been unique & fun, the build is AMAZING. So, for Quidditch, they’re using an actual scripted game system, which means I mostly just watched and enjoyed, yet still yielded an opportunity to break out regular clothes instead uniforms & robes all the time (which I’ll post some other time!) Once word got around about this place, the creators just poured in clothing & items, & my wallet has been crying ever since.
