“If a tree falls in the forest but nobody…”
Yea alright that really doesn’t fit with this at all. Besides the trees in the photo above. You all know the rest of it anyway. I took almost two days away from blogging to get married here in Second Life. It would figure that the timing of it would fall right as Skin Fair and Pose Fair are kicking off but that’s life right. But now that I’ve watched my bride walk down the aisle, and our bond has been sealed with rings and a kiss, it’s time to get back to business! (We’ll be sharing pictures and there will be a post about the wedding soon, I promise!) Continue reading
Short post today, my dears, because we’ve had some longer ones lately and sometimes it really is nice to take a bit of a break. To relax in something comfortable and casual .. without compromising in the style department.
I think I’ve said before that I never stop shopping; it’s the reason my inventory is completely nuts but it’s also the reason I’m able to come up with some of the outfits I do. I don’t limit myself to big events or specific genres but I definitely keep my eyes on them as much as anything else. Fashion is always evolving, in SL as much as in RL, and it’s been pure pleasure to see it happen from one month to the next in here.
Wow, so it’s almost March and I am thoroughly SICK of winter. Snow is nice, holidays are great, and I love getting bundled up and snuggly as the next girl but gosh, I’m ready to look outside my window and see something that isn’t white, brown, or grey.
I think you know what I mean.

So let’s talk about colour today, my lovelies! Continue reading
Well, actually this is my brother Lucky; the shoes are named Mae.😀
Ahhh, much better!
So maybe there’s a bit of a disconnect between what Lucky is wearing and what I’ve chosen for this pic. If you’re looking at our feet, sure, the shoes don’t really match (but aren’t they FANTASTIC?!). What I find interesting, though, is scrolling up, you can see that we aren’t mismatched either. We coordinated colours and accessories to make this shot just a little more cohesive. Life is like that, too; sometimes you can’t line things up exactly but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. Use what you’ve got. Love what you have.
I know for a fact that Lucky is going to rave about his sweater-bowtie-vest-thinger in HIS blog post so I’ll just tell you about what I’m wearing today. Deal? Continue reading
Hey everyone, and welcome to ‘Zero Lag Thirty,’ part two of my ‘Stylin’ Ain’t Easy’ blog series!
BLOGGERS: This is my next challenge for you! I want to see your best, least laggy outfit; help spread the word that Zero Lag can still look amazing.❤
Today we’re going to explore the challenge of trying to move around in Second Life. We’ve all fallen prey to the SL ‘Lag Monster’ and while sometimes the situation is completely out of our control, sometimes it isn’t. Sometimes we’re our own worst enemy.
So whether you’re scaling down (har har) to get ready for competitive racing like me or you’d just like to be able to cross the floor of your favourite club without rubberbanding, you might want to read on. Watch and learn, Grasshopper.
( If you want to race with guys like these, you need to run lean and clean. ) Continue reading
“People think that everyone wears black in France; in fact they all wear grey.”
~ Jean Paul Gaultier
So, again, this is a post that got away from me. I had plans; everything was set in my mind, plotted to the last alpha layer. I was going to photograph shine’s Grey Collection in monochrome with vivid colour accents: bright red lips, stunning aquamarine eyes, verdant green foliage, and bold yellow gloves (you know how I love to play with gloves). When I signed in this morning, though, things came together differently.
I just love when outfits evolve on their own!
( This outfit is pure ‘shine;’ simple, comfortable, and still pretty stylish! )
Something you will notice, however, is that I kept each outfit very simple; after a month of shimmer, sparkle, and bright colour, it was refreshing to change gears this way. To ’embrace the grey,’ as it were. Continue reading
A horrific thing happened this morning.
Hug your family and your friends. Tell them how much you love them and recognize that your world would shatter if you lost even one of them.
Don’t wait for the holidays. Do it now.

So here I am, awake at 5am and smiling after a few glasses of wine, and I’m excited to share this next post with you! This is a dress I’ve been styling for a few days but nothing was working the way I thought it should. I don’t wear much black and I’ll be the first to say that it’s my biggest challenge to work with deep, dark shades like this.
Until I realize that colour is the answer!
Check it out: shine‘s simple black sixties dress (available NOW at Designer’s Circle #42) with Cae‘s beautiful starfish jewelry set. I changed the jewelry to ‘patina’ (and THANK YOU, Cae, for having an option to change every item at the same time <3) and found a pair of blue/green ombre tights from Milk Motion. Truth‘s Cyanne hair with a greenish headband (so pretty!) and my fantastic HOC platforms round it all out perfectly. Continue reading
