I like shinies, do you?

You know you’re in Second Life too often just enough when… you see camera flashes on something shiny and think someone really needs to turn off their bling function. Oh.. also… if you say that out loud, anyone who hasn’t been in Second Life will look at you like you’ve lost your mind. Just a hint.

I do love my shiny objects and I love them even more if they are free. So, this dress from Tres Beau and the adorkable poses (with gem props) definitely fit the bill. They are gifts in the Diamond is Mine Hunt 2 – you can get all the details on Sophia Rossen’s blog.

Ooooh, shiny!

Tres Beautiful, no? (Hey, at least I think I’m funny.

I’ve developed a jewelry habit over the last several months, re-fueled thanks in no small part to Saiyge Lotus of Balderdash. I found her store pretty much right after I first got into SL, and I still lover her designs. Check out a close-up.

See what I mean? Her store is on Oubliette. Go check it out!

Hanging Out at Home

Sometimes, like when you’re stuck at work, you just want to be home.

Sometimes I don’t even care if I’m sitting around and waiting for someone…
Relaxing in Umber

or if I’m lounging around reading…

but my favorite is laying around without a thing to do in the world.
Just about ready for a nap

Is it time to go home yet?

52 Weeks of Color – Catching Up

Since I’m playing catch up in every other part of my life, it is SO appropriate that I have to catch up on the 52 weeks of color challenge.  So, without further ado, here are my looks for both blue and goldenrod!

Now, the goldenrod outfit looks like it has a pretty equal mix of brown and the color of the week in there, but I do have pics on my Flickr without the jacket (following the rules a little closer).  I also have another goldenrod look – I wasn’t going to post it (because I wanted to do something similar when we got to greens), but it made me laugh and I needed that tonight.  I give you… Colonel Mustard! (Which reminds me, I really should play Clue(TM) more often).

I have to say, putting the looks together has been the highlight of my past couple of weeks.  Thanks, Luna for coming up with this challenge!

Last day for the diamond to be yours…

While these past several weeks have pretty much laughed at any plans I might have ever had to actually get anything done, I did have a chance to check out several of the great gifts available in the Diamond is Mine Hunt. Here are just a couple of my favorites:

DIMH - Bubblez and n-creation DIMH - Sassy! DIMH - Apple May Designs

No, the skirt in the first picture doesn’t have holes in it – it has one of the best uses of layers and glow I’ve seen in a while – when it moves, it’s like there are stars in your skirt… in a good way, not in the gee, wouldn’t that be uncomfortable to have actual stars in your skirt kind of way.  You’ll want to click on the pictures to get to my Flickr to see the detail on the bracelet and earrings. There’s also a few more pics there of the stuff you can find.

Diamond Hunting…

I like hunts, I’m a little addicted to them (to be honest), even if I’m not the best at hunting for things per se.

There’s a new hunt that starts this weekend sponsored by Sophistishapes – and I’m kind of excited about all of the great designers that are included. For a full list with some hints, check out Sophia Rossen’s blog over here.  She also has pictures up of some of the hunt gifts (I’ll have some here soon) if you want to check them out before heading out hunting.

Remember: the hunt starts Sunday, so if you start hunting before then, it’s likely to be frustrating 😛

Happy Hunting!
