Had To Separate the Kids

I can't, in good conscience, ever just do a "style card," a post consisting of merely a pic and credits. This is my blog. My BLOG. A blog consists of thoughts, feelings, information. Often I will write a quick poem, or add song lyrics - sharing where my brain went upon constructing the pic. It has also occurred to me, that while that is interesting (hopefully!), Second Lifers are tuning in to learn more about the creations depicted. I'm going to start making a more concerted effort to describe the items...what I like about them, and anything particularly outstanding about them...even if it's just bullet points for the sake of time, lol.

Sn@tch - What has Ivey Deschanel been up to, that talented busy bee? I'm wearing Bailey Hair. This is an adorable hairstyle, with bangs and falling long down the back. The textures glisten very nicely with graphics up. So it's cute AND affordable - check out the Spring Cleaning on the Lanisha Sim or find Bailey at the store when you find the Purple Rose, and save while picking up hair cuteness! I'm also wearing the Surfside Halter Top, for classic avies or the option of an Omega Hud for mesh ladies. I have a huge problem with this halter. A really big negative. The textures are so cute it's difficult to pick which one to wear! ;) 

JUSTICE - My shorts are Bailee. Alas, the same problem as above, these include a great texture hud. Whatever shall we do with all these options. Dance around gleefully? Of course! We do need to tell Valentine Coy that she forgot to zip up the zipper - it's artfully small enough to not be gauche, and strategically cute when noticed. Valentine has released some similarly styled jeans that I'll be sharing soon - but you know you don't have to wait on me to buy them.

Slipper Originals - I'm wearing Alissa Sandals, an older release found at the store. I vote never worry about pulling out the perfect shoes we already have in inventory, especially when they're created by Elle Polygon. These sandals come with the usual extensive color hud. Sensory overload, omg, they will match anything!

CHEZ MOI FURNITURES - The Polka Dots Patio Set is offered up at this round of Cosmopolitan. Rezz more cups and chairs and invite your friends over for a tea party! PG and Adult Versions are available. Wait, Adult? I'm going to conduct a safety inspection! We don't want anyone scalded by hot tea. ;) I really like this furniture design - the white wrought iron is very pretty. Thanks, Nanda Marjeta, for brightening our world with such wonderful furniture!

JIAN - Jian is not one of my official sponsors (would that it were, I can dream, hint, hint). I finally hopped over to The Arcade to pick up Kalia Firelyte's Cheeky Chihuahuas. Jian pets are usually an expected splurge for me - I want them all and GET them all. These little cuties were fighting so I had to separate them. I'm pretty sure they will make special appearances on my blog often. Let's hope they behave! Meanwhile, I'm pretty sure I'm sponsoring Jian SL kids through college with my purchases, probably shouldn't let me blog officially. ;)

Whew, so this is why I don't always chatter about items; I have so many complimentary things to say the posts get long!

Feminine Liquid Foil

Presenting a bit of pastel for you in this post! My ZOZ Nails are called Liquid Foil; their appearance holds up beautifully to the cool name. My hair is by Alli&Ali Designs - I caught an interesting shadow on my right side and left it. My eyes (current faves) are by YS&YS, called Tresor and extend that liquid foil effect. Moreover, my Studio Exposure makeup (from June's Lelutka Powder Pack) glistens marvelously.

Do you want to glisten?

Good Morning and happy Saturday.  One of the mysteries of life, don’t worry I’m not being too deep on a Saturday lol but yes one of those life mysteries no one can explain properly is why is it that when you have an alarm all week you want to sleep and hit that snooze button, then at the weekend you have no alarm and wake up earlier than the rest of the week lol.  Yes I was up at 6am on a weekend pffft should be against some law but hey it means my day is longer to fit in things I want to do right? lol

I’ve just launched a new website called and wanted to take a few minutes to let you know about it in more detail. When I first started blogging I wrote a regular feature called Mainstore Monday, where I visited a main store and wrote a blog post about it. Now, I love shopping events…I’m...
