There might be a lil dust on the blog?

There might be a little dust on the bottle
But don’t let it fool ya about what’s inside
There might be a little dust on the bottle
It’s one of those things that gets sweeter with time

It’s been a while… again. My pixel life has a way of keeping me busy. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to blog, it’s more of a physics thing. You know an object in motion stays in motion, and object at rest stays at rest. (look at that a fashion blog with educational value! Newton’s first law of motion just in case you were wondering)

What prompted a restart of the blog posts? A few things…. my little corner of SL seems to be in that happy grove. I’ve gotten my muse back, and am feeling creative again (my sim has noticed that creativity) and there was this little mention of a certain designer looking for bloggers….how could I resist that temptation?

Blueberry, is by far one of my favorite designers. I don’t think there are many on the grid who haven’t heard of her “blueberry booty” and the way it transforms a nice booty into this amazing work of art (I know I’ve commented a few times about it in the past). The fit of her clothing is amazing. While I don’t have a slink body to say first hand it fits all the popular mesh bodies perfectly, I haven’t had an issue with either Belleza or Maitreya. The top I am wearing has become one of my favorites for that casual, comfy side of SL. I’ve paired it with shorts today, but it goes nicely with skirts, a few jeans, and a few bottoms from other designers as well (I know long tops are sometimes an issue when matching up)

You may also notice I look a lil different…. you can thank that bestie of mine for that.  After the Belleza update, I promised I would give the body another try…..I only wear Maitreya now when I really want to wear that outfit. The Belleza Isis has such nice curves to it, and that hud! If you haven’t tried it out yet.. go try Belleza….this is coming from a die hard Maitreya girl.

Still with me? Good.

And get yourself free

I’ve been enjoying a bit of freedom lately in my virtual world, and it’s been fun. Yes, it has meant less blog posts, but maybe  that whole quality over quantity thing is something to be listened to.

The Instruments started on the 18th, and one of my favorite designers, Petite Morte, is there with another awesome boho chic outfit. 7 different tops and jeans to choose from.

The fit is amazing and you have options of slink high or medium for the legs (yes, they work fine with maitreya too)

I’m also showing off my latest gacha addiction haul… Zerkalo has a new autumn gacha at Shiny Shabby, and everything you see in the picture are items you can win. I just need to find a perfect spot for it now…

My addiction

“like cocaine, heroin, alcohol, vicadin”

I will admit, I am writing this post still consumed by this euphoric high of a gacha overdose. So if by chance I start rambling, you know why.

Today at noon The Gacha Garden allowed its bloggers access to the sim….

That is when it all started.

The OMG’s, the slight hyperventilation as I began to realize there were boxes there that I could click on and they GAVE me stuff!!

Ok when I was 2 we went to the Bear Creek Park for some city celelbration (can’t remember was 2) It was however MY birthday, and being 2 and of course me was highly impressed that the entire city came to my birthday (cake AND balloons) and Rooty Root Bear showed up he gave me a teddy, and started my life long love of root beer.

We will now fast forward a “few” years….

My birthday is tomorrow….and because I am still me..this is totally like the BEST present EVER in second life.

(yep, still gonna stick with the it’s for me thing… )

So where do I start? (I am actually writing this because every time I look at my sl screen it produces another”OMG there’s that too!!”)

Wow…that was so much stuff… and I decided..which was super hard…but I spent the last bit organizing some of the amazing furniture that is being offered into one of the free cottages at the Oasis. (yay for owning a spot, and yes.. I will even leave it up if you’d like to go see it for yourself) I don’t even know where to start! I love the fact that while you’ll see quite a few designers pieces, it all flows rather nicely in the room.  The guitar from Zerako is so nicely detailed, as is the table from Miamai The fun thing that I absolutely LOVE tho are the clothes from Sallie x Body Language…mostly because that is a so me thing. There’s always something that I just left on the floor.

Honestly, the designers for this event did a fantastic job, and I really can’t wait for the event to open

Hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

American kids

American kids

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA
We were teenage dreamin’, front seat leanin’
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
Uptown down home American kids
Growin’ up in little pink houses
Makin’ out on living room couches
Blowin’ that smoke on Saturday night
A little messed up, but we’re all alright

So I promised you all another post featuring Petite Mort, and then got distracted with gacha(opened a gacha shop!!)… however… after finding this awesome balloon at the Wayward Carnival, I knew that I had the perfect photo op ! (also…I have it set to public at the Oasis if you wanna go for a ride)

The outfit is part of her new Americana line, and figured Kenny’s song went along well with it.

There is a reason this is one of my favorite shops, the boho hippie style is just so awesome….and she has outdone herself on this collection. The tee has a hud allowing you to change the graphic, I love how it’s a cut off shirt, but I’m still covered. So many tops show boob, which is cool and all, but there are day’s I like to leave WAY more to the imagination.

So, I’m just gon’ sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

It’s been a bit of a waistin’ time week for me. Canada Day today, so there really was no huge rush to do anything. And had there not been a storm where someone special was…I’d likely still be happily doing nothing.

However…storms seem to be the bane of internet, and as after he poofed there was this wonderful box from Petite Mort… well you know….

She has a new American line out in stores starting today…and it is amazing. I really had a hard time deciding what to blog first, and have resigned myself to just letting you know, this will be the first of a few posts showing off her new collection.

I love it. It’s that boho hippie feel that had me fall in love with her clothing to begin with. The top has a hud so you can choose the shirts design, and the skirt fits my shape with minimal alpha needed.

And I wanna rock your gypsy soul

Into the Mystic

Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly
Into the mystic

This is my Arcade post…well one of them, the cute girly one with my hippos, and all that will come later… this one however fit my mood. Remember that closure post I did a while back? It helped… till last night when I noticed I was no longer listed as his babydoll, or on his profile as “always having a place in his heart” …and he left the Oasis group.

This morning I woke to a rainy cloudy world, Into the Mystic playing, and a message on skype letting me know the reasons for all the change was to give someone else the chance to do what he isn’t able to anymore. The song, was totally fitting…and while I can’t say I am totally ready to jump into that realm of SL relationships again… think my soul is finally free.

Now that we have all that out of the way…  back to the reason you’re here other than to read my rambling! All the furnishings, are from various gachas at the Arcade, I’ll list the stores at the bottom along with a link to the shopping guide. The dress is from my favorite boho style designer Petite Mort, if you haven’t checked out her shop yet, you need to go.

To lighten up 

You’re going to love me after this post. I found this awesome event called the Wash Cart Sale. It was on the facebook page of a designer that I love.  And when she mentioned that items were 10 L with one at 50L I knew I had to get there. The event runs from May 27th through June 7th. So buy the outfits there, and then head to Petite Mort to see the rest of her amazing things!
