New and Newerer

Wow, okay! So it’s been a little while since my last post and while I doubt I should admit to spending the last four days up to my eyeballs in SWToR (chapter 1 of the smuggler storyline complete, baby! LEGACY, WOOO!), I would also like to assure you that I am back and blogging for the forseeable future. Will I sneak off to fight the Imperials, work on my Huttball record, and take my XS Freighter through perilous deep space missions? Well, yes, but not at the expense of sharing fun fashion finds with you!

We’re talking about clothes now, see? I can stop playing any time I want. Yep.

Falling

I’m usually pretty happy. Whether through conscious effort or genuine gladness, this is the mood I choose to have and the face I choose to show the world. Always a kind word for someone, often with a quip or a compliment (or both, hah!), it’s been my experience that life is generally easier if you face it with a smile. Some days it’s as easy as breathing. Others, not so much.

Still, I try.

This post has been brewing a while, though, and is the culmination of a few things, really. Weeks of grief on top of months of stress and sadness; my anxieties and the neverending fight to BE the person I want to be. The seasonal change (and don’t pretend it doesn’t affect you too – we’re all human), juggling funds, and failure in more than a few areas. Depression. Blah. We’ve all been here in varying degrees and we deal with it in a variety of ways.

Of all the dresses ..

.. in all the shops in all of the SL events right now .. the CadyLady and I bought the EXACT SAME ONE. At Cinema.

Crazy, right? But really .. would you have been able to resist the Volstead ‘Liason’ in honey? This lacy, silky, sheer chemise (if you aren’t wearing the glitch layers) left me speechless the second I tried it on. I’m still having trouble drumming up the words to describe how much I love this piece. Just .. go to Cinema and pick up the demo so you can throw me a line, here.

Okay?

Thanks.

Thursday?!

HG: Thursday! It can’t be! It’s too gruesome!

PV: What’s so gruesome about Thursday?

HG: Nothing, except I can never remember when it’s coming up.

AAAHHHH!!!  Thursday already and nearly a week into Cinema! Can you believe it?! I had plans, so many plans, so many outfits lined up and ready to go but life just kind of takes over sometimes and it’s all we can do to keep up. But boy, I have a treat for you now – cross my heart and kiss my elbow!

So yes, I can never decide of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is my favourite movie of all time but when I have the “mean reds” there’s nothing else for me to do but pop this DVD on, close my eyes, and just listen to Audrey Hepburn’s voice for a couple of hours. I could do it right now except it’s Thursday (!!) and I have other things to do this afternoon, blah! Continue reading

To Be Free

So it’s no real secret that I’m loving the boho and as we move through autumn and into winter, I’m really hoping to see more fun patterns and layers to mix and match. This is what the bohemian style is really about, as far as I’m concerned; it’s the freedom to wear what you like best, to find something (or a bunch of things) that suit you and bring a smile to your face.🙂 See?

Coming Soon to a Cinema Near You!

Hiiiii everyone!

You may not be able to see me inside the GINORMOUS cinema but if you look verrrrry closely there’s a little yellow and blue person standing by the counter. Squint .. squint .. see me? HI!

You’re probably already aware that the Hottie Cooterati Experience event begins (OMG) LATER ON TODAY but if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, I’m going to tempt you with a couple of fun things I’ve found so far and probably rave way too much about an event which is very close to my heart.

Who doesn’t love going to the movies? Continue reading
