Baby, I’ll behave
If you let me stay
Please don’t say
That I’m begging you for love
“Bassically” by Tei Shi


You sign up to blog an event like Romp and all your posts seem to center around sex—funny how that works out. I pulled out this sexy latex dress from xxsaltandpepperxx, which she is featuring at Romp, and I was inspired to go red, especially when I got the amazing lace up shoes (reminiscent of a pair that Kendall Jenner wore for the MTV Music Awards) from Queenshop that are featured at the Chapter Four. I clicked around on the color choice HUDs for each one and found the perfect look. Aikea Rieko’s fabulous mesh earrings from The Liaison Collaborative finish my look.


Nicole Button has recently come out with an applier for the Catwa head, this one meant for the newer head but it looks ideal on Annie too. I tinted up the lips and eyes with the Catwa-supplied makeups, making them completely opaque. Tabata Jewell has created a set of Catwa hairbase appliers to match this fabulous, one-sided tumble of curls she is featuring at Hairology. I think it’s a fierce look that will command someone (you know who you are) to behave! Behave

Small Town Girl

I went over to the small town of Crestwick and thought about my small town girl. She had a shopping spree at Shiny Shabby since it’s opened and got this darling top and skirt combo from Asia Rae that has some great details with textures that evoke movement in the skirt and a lovely soft drape in the top. The mesh is nicely and proportionately constructed so the top is feminine but not outrageous. (In other words, the breasts are proportionate.) I paired it with Meva Carnell’s awesome necklace from Shiny Shabby and shoes from xxsaltandpepperxx from Tres Chic that have the same chain motif as the necklace. (Funny how that works.)

Small Town Girl

And how refreshing to wear a skin on my own shape again. It’s like washing your face after wearing makeup all day. Umazuma Metaluna has created this darling skin for Shiny Shabby, with and without freckles. I opted for freckles for the small town girl look. A darling wavy hair from Kuranosuke Kamachi for Shiny Shabby finishes my look. I am quite pleased with my demeanor in this look, fully a small town girl.

Stopping by Woods–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 10

Stopping by Woods–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 10

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

~ “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost

Stopping by Woods--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 10

I went over to the lovely Garden of Whimsy and was reminded of Robert Frost’s poem about the deep dark woods. They have set up the sim so nicely without too much kitschy stuff and enough wonder that I enjoyed myself. I am wearing xxsaltandpepperxx’s cute chevron-patterned dress, a giftable look available at Christmas on 34th Street. I matched mokkinha’s ankle boots to the look. You can see a subtle chevron pattern in the boots.

Today’s featured gift is Aleida Rhode’s custom mesh earrings, which she is offering as the gift in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar in three colors—silver, copper and onyx. With a decorative hanger, they are almost like ornaments but more delicate. My skin is one of Silent Alchemi’s lovely looks. I needed to take off a mesh head for a day and get some air, and with this glowing skin, I feel beautiful. I added lipstick from Synjari Myriam, also giftable at the Christmas on 34th Street. She offers each package with evening and daytime tones, which is clever. My short sassy hair is one of Leyla Flux’s great looks for Hairology, which opened today!

The Last Smile

The Last Smile

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” ~ William Cullen Bryant

The Last Smile

Fall came in yesterday just like that. It was balmy out on Monday evening, the air thick with humidity and early the next morning a cold front came through with a storm and chill air and golden sunshine followed it. When I was trying to take these photos and struggling, my friend asked, “What kind of windlight are you hoping for?” I said, “The kind that imbues the scene with sunlight filtered through a thousand autumn leaves, tinting everything with a nostalgic depth and laying upon it its honeyed warmth before the chill winter winds descend.” He sighed. “Try ‘Sunset.’”

My dear friend Sabein Streeter, helped me set up my autumn house, which I will be photoing in pieces because she jam packed it so full of goodness, and I can’t cover it all in one blog. Her wonderful decorating sense was assisted by the many beautiful décor items available this month at Shiny Shabby. We start, of course, on the back stoop, where we find leaves have covered the area via Kunst Himmel and a cart of gourds, courtesy of FadeArcade. A cozy rocking chair from Marinestella waits for a friend to sit but I have just finished riding my bike from Danielestro and am about to go inside. The house? Barnesworth Anubis’ beautiful cottage for Collabor88, more of which you will see in the next days.

The Last Smile

My outfit is a combination of fall and summer. A warm but sexy middriff-skimming sweater from Kiddo Oh at Tres Chic tops short shorts from xxxsaltandpepperxxx, available at the Cosmopolitan Room—both mesh. Long socks from Roslin Petion for My Attci and great little boots from Darling Monday at Shiny Shabby complete the look.

I want to highlight the berries in my hair—a lovely hair pick from Abraxxa Anatine, featured at the Cosmopolitan Room. I pushed it into my hair in front, a celebration of the fruits of fall. The pick has a color change menu on click and is exquisitely crafted in mesh, but not rigged so you can move it around and resize or copy and wear multiple. My hair is one of the wild fusion shades from Kavar Cleanslate, his contribution to Fantasy Collective. And once again I wear Catwa Clip’s lovely Jessica mesh head with a beautiful skin applied from Inka Mexicola , both available at the Cosmopolitan Room.

September Song

September Song

“The autumn leaves blew over the moonlit pavement in such a way as to make the girl who was moving there seem fixed to a sliding walk, letting the motion of the wind and the leaves carry her forward. […] The trees overhead made a great sound of letting down their dry rain.”~  Ray Bradbury


Photo by Frenchy25

My pal Frenchy25, a terrific photographer, caught me wandering around St. Pete’s City, looking at NevaCrystall’s newest sim, and he played paparazzi (or so he said) and captured a shot, which I show above. I was pretty impressed he caught me because I was stumbling around, trying to settle on a spot for a photo—hard to do because they are so many great spots on this decorative sim. For this photo, I chose Poulet Koenkamp’s gorgeous new jacket for The Instruments, available in several different prints with solids. Poulet does not always make her own mesh but she does such fabulous textures, it really doesn’t matter. Her texture work puts her head and shoulders above many. My skirt is Kiddo Oh’s fashionable and well-fitting find at Tres Chic, custom mesh fitted perfectly to the Maitreya body. And my boots from Sora Tatham for Shiny Shabby are also fitted to the Maitreya body and perfect for an autumn outfit.

September Song

Catwa Clip recently came out with her new mesh head which includes expressions and makeup possibilities (which I hope to feature on another blog). I put Umazuma Metaluna’s beautiful new skin just for this mesh head on , clicked my makeup choice into place, and discovered a beautiful woman. With Uma’s wonderful eyes for this month’s Cosmetic Fair, I made a soulful beauty. Both Nikohl Hax and xxxsaltandpepperxxx off eclectic jewelry at this month’s Shiny Shabby, both in custom mesh.
