Checking our work…

Every good fairy knows to go back and check that their work is flourishing.

Innocent Fluttering

Naturally, if you’ve already done a good job, you can easily turn a quality control visit into a chance to stop and smell the flowers.


Well, the petite train has hit, and I honestly didn’t think I’d get on, but when Aikea Rieko from Plastik was going to put her skins to them, well… I couldn’t hold out. Besides, I had heard how wonderful mesh hands were, and .. two birds and all that.
Mesh hands are wonderful. I mean, I love mesh anyway (lazy blogger is lazy and not adjusting is a dream) and this is just great. Very minimal weird angles in poses – not only is there minimal clothing adjustment, it’s fun to actually be pixie size. (You should try it, I promise it’s not addictive.)

Plastik can be found on the Ruins of Nu Orne, while Evie’s Closet is on the Tides sim. The Fantasy Faire closes tonight – so I’ll stop spamming about it, but that also means that time is running down to go check it out.

Waiting around for someone to show up … or a blogger to post (like me) – you start to notice how drafty it is up here in the attic.

Attic Orange

I have a weird little thing where I can’t blog if I’m kind of blah in my physical life. Part of it is trying not to use this forum as an outlet for venting my frustrations, part of it is I have no motivation to do much of anything when my physical life isn’t going so well – for whatever reason. In any case, I’m trying to get over that. Not to use this as a forum for venting necessarily, but as an outlet that keeps me doing something I enjoy – because I do enjoy putting together what other people create and taking a picture of it. And just maybe that will help break the cycle.

Anyway, enough of that. Many thanks have to go to Luna Jubilee for her original 52 Weeks challenge – and keeping it going for round 2. I haven’t quite kept up, but I promised myself I would finish round 1, so here goes. I have everything styled – I just have to get to taking the pictures. Aaaand, I have to get to taking pictures of the other things I’ve put together during my extended holiday break.

A little bit of Chrissy

Where are Jack and Janet? I forgot my key again!

Jazzy Chrissy

The first time I saw this hair from Truth, I immediately thought of Chrissy Snow from Three’s Company. So, a little bit Chrissy for my Jazzberry post (I’m catching up!)

52 Weeks of Color – Jazzberry

Apricot Houses

Playing catch-up on the 52 weeks of color challenge (I’m sure you’ve all heard that before)…

The top is from Indie Rose – a wonderful store with an awesome creator! Like I mentioned in my Melon post, “salmon” has served me well during this color challenge! I was totally on board with looking at this top and seeing it as a salmon color, but I can see how it like apricot, and was pretty much right on when I compared the RGB values. Funny how what we actually see, and what definitions say we should see, are often different things.


The house (that you can only see a tiny bit of here) is from *Funky Junk*. You’ll see it again in my next post as well, and I just love it. It reminds me of home. Where I grew up, you had a great view of the mountains, you were 20 minutes from the beach – and could drive to any weather you wanted. No, I didn’t grow up in a bubble, but it felt like it sometimes. Now that I’m not there, things like this house make me a bit nostalgic – I guess everything is better in hindsight.

Hair Love

Hi, my name is Daybreak and I’m addicted to virtual hair. Whew, I feel so much better after admitting that!

I love hair – long, short, curly, straight – all kinds. I especially love it when I find a hair attachment that makes me want to never take it off.  That’s exactly what happened with this hair from Action.  Well, actually, I shouted “Huzzah, it must be mine!” and then proceeded to have to explain to anyone around me why I just shouted that.  (In case you’re curious, it’s a reflex.  I blame John Kovalic and Dork Tower.)


This skin? My favorite from al Vulo. It was a special skin for The Fashion Garrett. Unfortunately, I don’t think there is a full line of this skin – at least, I can’t find one at the mainstore. If I’m wrong about that, I would really appreciate if someone would let me know! (Or if one of the other skins at al Vulo is a good match, that would work too.) It has all of the great points I’m looking for in a skin and I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t find more options.

I know, I know, I could add makeup layers, but I haven’t found lipsticks that work well on multiple skins – does that make sense?

Note: This image is photoshopped. The eyes weren’t closed all the way and I played with that to darken the waterline. Other than that, nothing done to it except cropping. (All other pics of this outfit are cropped only.)

I feel… tired

I didn’t really mean for this to turn into my just posting pictures and not really writing anything (not that there’s anything wrong with that, it just wasn’t my intention for this blog), but things have been a little blah lately and I haven’t really had much to say.

Long Day

That isn’t really fair to the amazing creators who make me smile every time I open up their notecards. I’ve been especially excited over Gala Phoenix’s latest faces for Curio, Lelutka’s latest hairs, and epoque’s new line – LOVE. I don’t think I really need to say how much I adore Aikea Rieko’s work. There’s a reason I have a whole folder dedicated to it on my Flickr. I could fangirl over these wonderful designers forever, but I won’t because I like to think I have a little decorum… not much, but a little.

Thinking of Frescos…

Nothing terribly exciting to say, just totally in love with these print dresses from MichaMi. I feel like I’m wearing a fresco.  I took these pictures a few days ago, but I wanted to do something a bit more with them, so I hadn’t posted until now.  (Which is just another way of my saying that you will likely see them again.)

I decided to post now – not just because I feel like something this cool should get love (and it SHOULD), but also because one of the colors is at The Dressing Room right now, so you can get it for less than normal.  (Not that they are terribly expensive to begin with, they are definitely not – that’s another thing I love about MichaMi.)

Olive you

Leaning in wait on an old wall, in an old city that will never live up to what it once was (and that’s okay)…

Leaning in Wait

Wish I could remember what I was waiting for.
