It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds. ~ Aesop

Love Birds

I walked out to the beach to find that it looked like a flock of lovebirds had taken nest in my palm trees. Oh wait. They purred and I realized they were KittyCats perched in my palms. KittyCatS recent release of LoveBirdS include a removable beak and crest and come with brightly colored feathers, made for Valentine’s Day but perfect to brighten up your spring after a long winter. Each KittyCat includes a special animation in them, where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend.

I enjoyed the warm air in an outfit made of separates from the first anniversary Shiny Shabby. My top from evastika Aura is fitted for Maitreya bodies matched to denim shorts from Systi Cisse, also for Maitreya bodies. Cute bowed flats from Darling Monday come in several colors. A cute little diamond-studded watch from Bob for Shiny Shabby includes a HUD to change various parts of the watch.

Carina Larsen has made this cute and casual ponytail for Shiny Shabby with her great texture-change options. I am wearing Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier for Shiny Shabby on the Catwa Annie mesh head in a warm tan. I found my palms at the RFL Home & Garden Expo from Cari McKeenan, who got them out late. The donation from purchase of the trees will go directly to ACS.

The Clerihew

I subscribe to A.Word.A.Day, and this week they are featuring light poetry words. One of the words was “clerihew.”




noun: A humorous, pseudo-biographical verse of four lines of uneven length, with the rhyming scheme AABB, and the first line containing the name of the subject.

Of course, I had to take my turn at it, which you see above.

I satisfied my fashionista instinct this blog post with a darling little dress from Beanster Potato that comes with her fantastic texture-change HUD that allows different top colors, all for one low price. My shoes from Kim Lysette have the same fantastic option as does my necklace from Bastchild Lotus. Even my little lunchbox from Moonbubble Gothly’s gacha at Luck of the Irish has a HUD! (And I show several versions on this blog for kicks.)

Shylah Honey made waves on waves for the new Liaison Collaborative, the theme of which is Bon Voyage. I think she was trying to channel Rose with the casual elegance of these locks. (The back is just as pretty with waves tumbling down.)

Skin Fair is going on and Systi Cisse is offering two skins, one of which is this one that I wear without a mesh body but with Slink hands and feet. The face itself has a very clean gentle palette so I played with the lipstick and eyeshadow included with the skin, having a bit of fun in the process and created a lovely look, especially with Soleil Reid’s eyes from The Men’s Dept.

I just found my spark
Give me a fire to start!

~ “Spark” by Until the Ribbon Breaks


Tom Ford recently did a star-attended fashion show in LA with his newest collection, a combination of denims, boho and some 70s touches. So it was quite serendipitous when I opened one of GraceHaddington’s latest dresses and found this funky 70s design on the HUD in a pattern that looked amazingly close to one Tom Ford showed. Grace LOVES patterns and is one of the few in SL that uses them liberally and with a completely wonderful sense of proportion and color. I paired Glamistry’s newest sunglasses (to keep out the LA sun) and a pair of his great platform sandals, both of which come with his slick color change HUD and linked to his flawless shopping system. A wrist cuff from Systi Cisse locks the look up.


Thora Charron just released two new hairs and this gorgeously-textured, side-swept ‘do includes a HUD with a variety of her luscious colors. No more separate hairs cluttering your inventory—it’s easy peasy. My skin is Sawsan Secretspy’s newest for the Designer Circle, and I hope you can see how gorgeous it is. I think I will blog this one again because it’s worth seeing. As always, Sawsan lends her special elegance and sexiness to this skin and with her applier, it’s a complete look.

Future Perfect

He quickly pulled me off the busy sidewalk and into a doorway. A velocicopter whizzed past, leaving a plume of cool air behind it that curled around the corner of the doorway.

“Come with me,” he beckoned, and I followed him into the dark doorway.

We pushed through a small dark hallway past the security cilia. They whispered over our bodies as we passed, sensing our pulse, picking up data from the dust on our clothing, sniffing for prohibited weapons. Frac pushed through and emerged into the club ahead of me, bellowing, “Mellita, domi adsum!

Future Perfect

A towering woman emerged from behind a dark podium. “Fractile Montosa,” she snarled. “Welcome back to the Esoterium.” Her skin was pale and glimmered with a subtle sheen in the black lights of the club. She wore spots of glowing light blue hardware—earrings, belt, gems on her chest armor. Lines of blue light slid up her calves.

She gazed down at Frac, peering through her dark glasses with disdainful light blue eyes. I could see lines of data sliding across the inside as she engaged his attention. “We won’t have any more trouble like we did last time, will we?” The lights on the bottoms of her heelless boots pulsed with the beat of the loud music in the club as her long fingers curved around a small glowing voltaic terminus.

Frac grinned abashedly. “No, Ma’am. Just here to grab a drink, swap a few stories, and discreetly enjoy the beneficence of your gracious hospitality.”

Her blue lips curled in a smile. “I am glad we understand each other.”

Future Perfect

Our hostess from Esoterium is wearing the lastest in future club wear. First a great outfit from Syane Cisse—a combo of futuristic breast plate over Victorian bustle, laced and cut high in back and completed with fingerless gloves and thigh high stockings. The outfit comes with a hud for changing the accent colors. Her dark data glasses (also with hud) are also from Systi with glowing blue accents and her skin is from Systi’s sister, Syane. With its blue lipstick and shadow, it’s perfect for an evening at the Esoterium.

Future Perfect

Finally her amazing boots from Ono Zinner. With their heelless shape and molded platform, these boots were made for futuristic ass kicking. Ono has made these as his others, with glow adjust and animation adjustment available in a handy hud. Our hostess at the Esoterium can choose a rainbow of colors and adjustments to these boots and look newly made every night.

Future Perfect

Drinks arrived at our table, smoothly served by a pale dark-eyed server. “On the house,” he smiled, nodding towards the hostess across the club, who still had her blue eyes focused on Frac.

Frac lifted his glass in salute to her and drained it down in one draft. “Cheers to Mistress Eso!” he said merrily, slamming it down on the table.
