#408 Blogging by the skin of my teeth


Post #409

I have to finish this blog post quickly as Sakide's Smoking Jacket is available at the Vintage and Cool Fair which ends today.  It is available in an array of delicious colours and each pack has a plain jacket and one with either black or white lapels. it comes in five standard sizes but I was able to fit it to Maitreya Lara with some alpha tweaks.

My necklace and earring set is just one of a number that Indulge Temptations has available for 60L each till 9th of September midnight for 55LThursday.  They are 100% mesh, materials enabled, HUD driven, resizable (x,y,z), and depending on which pack you buy, have up to 10 bead colour options and 10 metal types.


My heels from Glamistry probably need nothing more than just to leave you to drool at them in the close up below.  However, in case you have been living under a pixel rock for a while and are new to Glamistry, I will just tell you that as well as making some of the most drool-worthy shoes in sl, Glamistry's hud allows you to purchase more colours directly from the hud itself, and every colour you buy is added to the pool from which you can customise multiple areas.

#407 Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

-Post #407

Why am I quoting Keats?  Well, Autumn is on its way, and the last few days I have felt a little quiet, reflective and somewhat withdrawn.  It has been over 6 months now since my mum passed away, and I can still hardly believe it.  She is never far from my mind but sometimes it hits me harder, and when it does I hide away (in my burrow, says the only rl friend who knows of this blog).

 Snowpaws has never been a store I frequent often, for no particular reason I can think of, but when I saw an advert for this outfit (top and skrit are bought together) on sale at Designer Showcase, it looked just right for my mood.  So off I went to pick it up and it really is a delight to wear, very soft and gentle and muted, wearing it feels a bit like being enclosed by a soft very pretty cloud.  The tulle is beautifully done, and I managed to fit it to my Maitreya Lara mesh body with not too much tweaking.  To match the whole soft mood I even wanted to mute my hair, so no red today, just a pretty light blonde.  

On a lighter note, one of my favourite people in sl tp'd me this afternoon after I was putting the finishing touch to this outfit and the first words out of her mouth when I had rezzed were "you are blonde!", which shows how rarely I do it.  The first words out of my mouth when she rezzed were "boobies!".  She always insists she is fully clothed, but rarely is - I shouldn't be surprised, Tomm''s affectionate nickname for her is "Flash" :).

My jewelry is from a "new to me" store, Meva, who I only discovered at My Attic last month, and I blogged their jewelry set here.  I wandered down to their mainstore and found a treasure trove of goodies - I picked up the group gift and a few other things and I am sure they will all appear on this blog in the near future. Both the necklace and bangle I am wearing come with huge texture change huds which is always a massive plus for me. 


Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.


John Keats, from Ode to Autumn, 1820
