“Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.” ~ Sylvia Plath


Poulet Koenkamp has come up with a darling look for this month’s On9, an East Asian-influenced minidress with a cut up the side of the thighs and an asymmetrical top. Fit to the body, either a mesh body or system body, it’s a hot look, especially paired with the lace up heels from Skyler Lebed that she is featuring at Romp and the cute earrings AvaGardner Kungler has done for On9.


MissAllSunday Lemon has generously made three fantastic ‘dos for Hair Fair 2016, a portion of each sale benefitting Wigs for Kids. This mix of high bangs and high ponytail with locks framing the decolletage is a sexy fun look.


MissAllSunday also offers a whimsical side ponytail with a braided front. I saw a girl wearing this style at Summerfest (the RL one, not the SL one) this year and it was darling on her.


Finally, a braid frames the face for this long style, perfect for RP or everyday wear. As always, MissAllSunday rocks the Hair Fair!

it gives us those nice, bright colors,
gives us the greens of summers,
makes ya think all the world’s a sunny day,
Oh yeah!
I’ve got a Nikon camera,
I’d love to take a photograph,
so mama don’t take…
my Kodachrome away…”

RFL Home & Garden is still going on. I got a chance to walk around after folks had set up. I indiscriminately bought things in vendors to make sure donations went to RFL—you should too. In fact, maybe you should get the scripted clock and bamboo from McChris Flanagan’s retro set, a modernist furniture grouping that reminds me of my parents’ first living room set and stereophonic sound system (in hifi, not wifi). With color change built into the menus so you can change the insets to yellow, orange or bright green and some rather humorous accessories (like that vinyl record from The Lindens and the 8-track player), the set is a virtual testament to kitsch. I added Cain Maven’s retrofuture hanging lamp and Elin Egoyan’s bright and beautiful painting to my living room and I was set.


I wearing Poulet Koenkamp’s lovely skirt and top set for the Instruments this round with her gorgeous textures. Shoes from Saki Galiazzo include a very versatile HUD for color change on different parts of the shoe and fit the Maitreya feet perfectly. I love the skin applier Monicuzza Babenco made for the LeLutka mesh heads, especially the blonde choices because they are so nicely done. My hair from Tabata Jewell for the Hairology event includes a panel in the HUD that lets you change the hair tie.

“The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.”

~ Ralph Nichols


I think my next goal is to develop my listening better, to really hear what people say when they talk. I think with all the input and stimulus we get nowadays, it’s become increasingly hard for people to listen and I am among those. So chalk this up as my promise today: I am going to work on listening.

Poulet Koenkamp recently came out with this lovely mesh dress with wrap-around bodice. The brilliant part is her fatpack comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to wear several variations of the dress. Poulet, who was once known for her amazing clothing, flexis and sculpties, has been a little behind the ball producing things in mesh, mostly because she has been tossing a ball with a new little one at home. (And seriously, mesh vs. baby—baby is *always* gonna win.) Her textures are glorious and her personal style elegant, so when Poulet does come out with something, it’s always a cut above. The HUD for this outfit is simple to use.

Abraxxa Anatine has been using mesh too with great results. This jewelry set comes with a texture change menu, allowing several different variations on the stones. She has been transferring her exquisite jewelry making style to mesh with such creations, breaking out of the constraints of prims and sculpties. This necklace can be worn with both pieces—the choker and the dangling necklace—or each piece separately.


The whole “listening” trope came up because of these new mesh ears from Hasuko Kuramoto, who has made other bodily appendages (*cough*) with great success in the past. My pretty ears come with a handy HUD that allows for skin matching and adjustment. This is the clever part: If I arrange one ear in place in a manner I like simply by increasing the size with the HUD and then rotating it into place, I can tell the HUD to sync the other ear in a mirror image. So if I want both ears upside down and tipped out, I can rotate one into place, click, and they will look symmetrical. The other awesome part is these ears DO accept appliers and tattoos.


My skin is one of the gorgeous skins Shyla Boucher has made for the Arcade. With a number of skin tones and makeups, Shyla is offering a gorgeous assortment of skins that will allow you to match to many different looks. And with skins rarely being no copy/transfer, the chance to get them at the Arcade is a boon for friends and alts and newbies, if you have extras and are feeling generous. My darling side swept ‘do is Mina Nakamur’a’s piece for My Attic, a sassy and sleek look with Mina’s great texture-change HUD.

is so close to being loved
that for the average person,
they are almost indistinguishable.”
