Morning Glory

Morning Glory

Somehow I have gotten my sleep schedule flipped. I used to be a night owl but now I am a morning glory. Instead of staying up til 3 I am waking up at 3 or 4 and then logging on to get my blog done. It’s got everyone around me, used to my late night hours, all topsy turvy, but I am finding I am enjoying the morning hours.

Morning Glory

I grab myself breakfast, some coffee, and sit down to read or watch a little TV and knit. Or I do housework. Or I log on to SL. It’s enjoyable in the early morning hours—some friends are straggling out from late nights or logging on for lunch or wrapping it up in their evening. The other day I did the whole Choice card stamp thing, I sorted some inventory, and rezzed a new house. And I have been able to sort through the sales notices.

Morning Glory

One that caught my eye this morning is that Truth District is having an event where designers are setting out exclusive items at 50% off for group members from Oct. 8-Oct. . Join the group TODAY because they will charge once the sale starts. I admit that I don’t often care to talk about sales or hunts, but I really like the folks at Truth District—great content throughout the sim and great management.

One of the goodies at half off is this cute little pajama set from Drinkenstein Sorbet. It includes the socks, which are much needed in the cooler fall weather. Ravyn Hynes is offering the sofa you see me lounging on for 50% as well. With something like 52 poses in it for men, women, friends, cuddling, etc, and its beautiful textures, I could lounge around in this outfit on this sofa all day, frankly. But I won’t…

Morning Glory

Cuz there are other outfits for sale at Truth District as well. First there is this darling outfit from Anessa Stine. She has seamlessly combined sculpty to system piece to create this cute top over leggings, which is very au courant and very attractive. LeeZu Baxter is also offering an item, this plum halter top with another seamlessly joined sculpty.

Morning Glory

Also on sale are some incredible shoes. I show Nardya Rousselot’s sandals on the left. Nardya has some of the best toes in SL, in my opinion, with a very user-friendly matching hud. She has a number of pieces against the back wall that will be 50% for this sale, so get over there! Gospel Voom is providing these fashionable purple bootie sandals as his sale item. Gospel is one of the leaders in creating great sculpty content in SL.

My skin? Gala Phoenix, who has a place at the Truth District and just came out with a new skin set as I was completing this blog—argh! And she IS offering an exclusive 50% skin which I have not even looked at but I am sure is magnificent.

My hair? From Truth Hawks, of course—one of his newest. Wander over to his store after you have sated yourself on the deals and get a pretty new hair to top it all off ;)

Morning Glory

The punchline: Truth District, Fall Event, 50% off exclusive content at most stores, October 8 to October 10. Join the group TODAY and then get there quickly!

Char

Char

Char is our girl today. Born in the 80s, she is the daughter of a brief but fruitful marriage between an aging rock star and a young groupie. Her daddy, Slim Jim Ross, was a rock star “in the 60s or 70s or something,” Char says. Her momma, considerably younger, was a Jazzercise instructor he met on tour in Tulsa. Now her momma teaches Zumba in Santa Monica and lives in a two-bedroom ranch paid for with his alimony, and Char lives in with her Daddy in Brentwood.

Slim Jim had two hits: “You Ain’t My Baby (No More)” and “In Your Velvet Spaceship.” (“Yeah, Baby, that song was for your mother, Crystal,” he coughed out, taking his first toke after a 5 mile jog. “But Daddy, my mom was Christine.” “Yeah, that’s what I said, right? Christine.” Crystal was his second wife. Her mother was his fourth. Char knew he had it wrong.) Char was named Chardonnay, after her momma’s favorite wine. Char is the apple of her father’s eye, his youngest, his “Baby Girl,” the one spending her siblings’ inheritance via increments of charges on his American Express.

Char

This may lead you to believe that Char has no redeeming values beyond those of being Slim Jim’s progeny, but that is not true. When J-Lo doesn’t know what to wear, she rings up Char. When Paris is perplexed, she phones Char. When Beyonce is befuddled, she texts Char. The Olson twins somehow lost Char’s number. That’s because Char shops so much, so knows where to get it all.

And her outfit today is comprised of only the best: first a top and skirt from LeeZu Baxter, designer extraordinaire. LeeZu puts the micro in the mini with this skirt—a waistband barely clinging to a scrap of flowered fabric. So brief it’s like a moment in time except LeeZu still manages to cover the essentials without making it ridiculous. Then the flowered top—a collage of tassel and lace and rose with textured sheer cotton. Char shows plenty of midriff but she knows looking trashy is not what she wants.

Char

Her boots are from another extraordinary designer—Bax Coen. One of the new set of animal prints Bax has put out, this is more fashionable slant on animal. In this case, the animal is the SoCal shopper with her stiletto heels. With its uniquely scripted fitting system and multi-texturing options, these boots are just what Char loves—versatile.

Char took a trip to the makeup counter at Curio and got a great free sample with her purchase. This pretty pink visage is Gala Phoenix’s offering to all who join the Truth District Update Group. Grab it now from past notices before it’s gone. (Look at those luscious lips.)

Finally, Char’s hair, which she (and I) love—a long breezy casually feathered ‘do from Kavar Cleanslate, available at Hair Fair 2011. When Char saw the cut and color, she said, “This is so Rodeo Drive, darling.”

Char

In your velvet spaceship
I find it strangely comfortable
In your UFO of looooove.
Probe me, explore me, penetrate my mind
Take me to the galaxies
In your velvet spaceship, your sp-sp-spaceship.

~ From “In Your Velvet Spaceship” by Slim Jim Ross

Michelle

Michelle, my belle.
Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble,
Très bien ensemble.

Michelle

Her name is Michelle simply because she reminds me of the actress Michelle Williams. With her cute party dress from Angelina Eizenberg, one of the featured items at the new My Second Wardrobe, she’s set for a summer day. Pretty espadrilles from Gospel Voom, his gift available at the Truth District, suit this summer frock.

Michelle

I feature a beautiful new skin from Gala Phoenix (you’re seeing a lot of them on my lately—I think I’m in love) with a scattering of freckles over a peaches and cream complexion. My short hair is one of Jeanie Valois’ featured styles at Hair Fair this year. I have to say—I love short hair and it’s darn hard to make, so this is a triumph of style. My earrings are Zaara Kohime’s featured offering at My Second Wardrobe—Zaara at a bargain price!

Michelle

I will say the only words I know that
You’ll understand, my Michelle.
