Which came first
The love or the love song?
Which is more important
In the long run?

A Walk Outside

I took a walk outside at Templemore in a cute dress from Ariadna Garrigus, a short number that includes a texture change HUD. Not all the hems are scalloped like this one on the HUD—Ariadna offers a lot of different looks and choices plus a number of colors. It’s a bargain. The other bargain I am wearing are Hilly Haalan’s heels, which include a ton of colors for changes on different parts of the shoe so you can mix it up and make it all work with your outfit.

A Walk Outside

There are still quite a few people who are not sold on mesh heads yet, and that’s ok. Umazuma Metaluna has released a set of skins for The Forest. I included a liner Uma had made for some previous skins but otherwise have not touched the skin and wear it on my normal shape. It has beautiful brows and lips as with all of Uma’s skins. Tabata Jewell is offering this darling hair for Hairology, one that is a youthful and rather unique in this world of big Brazilian blow outs. I really love it!

Orange You Glad

Orange You Glad

… I didn’t say banana?

Orange You Glad

Baby, it’s hot outside so I am inside but still feeling the heat. This minidress from Mami Jewell raises the temperature, especially in this hot color. (And what has happened to color in SL and photos? I am sick of all the gray, washed out stuff lately.) So yeah, orange makes me glad, especially with matching shoes from Ashleey Andrew from Romp and the darling jewelry Maxi Gossamer has at Collabor88.

Orange You Glad

As usual, Thora Charron has outdone herself with hair she is selling at Hair Fair with a portion of each going for Wigs for Kids. How can you resist this sexy wavy look, so nicely done it outclasses the other looks like this on the grid by miles.

Orange You Glad

Or try a classic wavy look….

Orange You Glad

Get disco with this wild and amazing look….

Orange You Glad

Or buck the status quo with a jeweled snood. Get them all at Hair Fair and help kids who want to live a normal life.

Optimist

Waiting, but I don’t mind
I’m all bus stops and heat
I’m neon in your daylight
I’m the optimist of 30th Street
How it is is how it oughta be

~ “Optimist” by David Byrne and St. Vincent

Optimist

When you see the buds on the trees, Radiohead drops a new song, sunshine arrives, you can’t help but be an optimist. I put together a casual, about-town outfit and strolled the streets of St. Pete’s City. My top and jacket are Ariadne Garrigus’ newest separate with a texture change HUD for the top and sweatshirt. She gives you a ton of cute patterns and solids for the top. I matched them up with the funky harem-style pants from AscendSL that comes with a color-change HUD and bejeweled sandals from Lilo Denimore, both featured at Shiny Shabby. Aikea Reiko has a selection of darling embossed handbags and Empyreanforge has a terrific bracelet set with texture change HUD at Shiny Shabby.

Queue Marlowe is bringing this great ponytail back from the Fantasy Faire and putting it in her store soon. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s generous group gift for the Essences fans, a system skin with all the beauty we are accustomed to from Inka. And I am totally in love with these gorgeous eyes from Audrey Lamede for Cosmopolitan Room.

The Wrong Side of Town

The Wrong Side of Town

I can’t be hangin’ around
Love on the wrong side of town
~ “Love on the Wrong Side of Town” by Southside Johnny and Asbury Jukes

On the Wrong Side of Town

I went over to MadPea’s game on the Firestorm sims, the Ghost Town, where you can use the SL
“experience” to enjoy a game with ghosts. I didn’t play the game (yet) because I was too busy admiring the scene set up. MadPea always seems to excel in making the best of SL by pulling out all the tricks in the bag without beating you over the head with it. Make sure on a night when you’re looking for something to do, you get over there.

I thought it would be a perfect backdrop for this casual outfit from Beanster Potato that she is selling at the Hipster Fair. It comes with the sweater and tank, jeans and shoes and she includes jewelry but I wore Plurabelle Laszlo’s awesome necklace for the Jewelry & Accessory expo. A fringed purse from Plurabelle Laszlo for the same Expo echoes the fringes.

Skin Fair is coming!

Skin Fair Poster 2016 FINAL SQUARE

Sachi Vixen, the grand dame of SL skins, is offering this and another skin at Skin Fair this year. She includes appliers for Slink and Maitreya bodies, eye makeup, lipsticks, blush, freckles, liner, and lots of love. If you are a woman who has not converted to mesh heads or you like to take a breather, these skins are bound to make you look great! Bubbles Clawtooth is offering this wonderful style at the Arcade. It includes a separate mesh piece with HUD that allows you to have the scalp-revealing part. I might be the prettiest girl on the wrong side of town!

I made a visit to the Citadel, a beautifully constructed sim, to enjoy the views and the interiors in my new dress from Azraellll, a 100% original mesh piece directly from Paris. I love the classiness of the dress, especially paired with sexy shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo for Whore Couture that she is putting out March 15. A chic little bracelet from Aleida Rhode completes the look.

Investment

I wore Umazuma Metaluna’s applier for the Arcade, the rare, which comes without makeup, and I wanted to dress up the look so I chose eyeshadow from Alaska Metropolitan and lipstick from Mea Carnell, and I blended them to give a muted look. I love how they dressed up this beautiful face. Curly lush hair from Queue Marlowe completes the look, swept to the side with an additional flexi attachment.

Quietness Desired

Quietness Desired

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.” ~ Munia Khan

Quietness Desired

Some people log on to SL to find a place of peace and quietness. Some wander the sims to seek peace and quiet. Lauren Bentham recently put together a new sim, Netherwood, that I recommend for that sense of peace and quiet in a crazy world. I dressed casually and enjoyed different spots on the sim. I wore a simple hoodie and top from Asia Rae, part of a unisex set she has created and paired lolly Carlberg’s gray jeans for Thrift Shop (half off) and Aleida Rhode’s latest flats for Cosmopolitan.

Quietness Desired

Sawsan Secretspy’s group gift skin brings a touch of spring to my look with pink lips and eyeshadow. The whole look was inspired by n0match’s darling hair with felted cap for Hairology. She includes texture change for the cap in several colors with the hair color HUD. A pretty little fantasy necklace by moonbubble Gothly for Fantasy Gacha Fair adds a little color to my look.
