Just another day on the savannah

So, I was wandering around and I found this lion looking out over his territory. Naturally, I thought the best way to approach was to sneak up on him – what could possibly go wrong? (It was either that or run at him yelling “kitty!” – I thought this would work better.)

Sneaking up on kitty

It took a little while, but now we’re the best of friends. He gives the very best cuddles.

Cuddles

He even supports my shopping habits. As out of control as they can be at times. You can get your own lion at the Zodiac event – if you can get there before it closes tonight. I’ve been having problems teleporting. It’s from Studio Sidhe – I don’t know if it will be available after the event. My shoes (Handverk) and skin (Candydoll) are also from the Zodiac event. I think the awesomeness of the shoes are pretty self-explanatory… they’re claw pumps!

Now, for a closer view of this great new skin from Candydoll. The eye shading is so wonderfully dreamy and soft. I did add freckles from Essences and Glam Affair, but that’s it. My favorite feature though, has got to be the mouth. The barest hint of teeth opens the mouth just enough, but not too much – you know what I mean?

Candydoll Leo

The top is from Vintage Fair – the pants are from Maitreya.  I’ll add credits shortly!

Dahlinks… so good to see you

Dahlings, so good to see you. Remember Hair Fair ends today, and while most of the hair available will be in main stores shortly, the free gifts likely will not.

Hello Dahling

So, go check out Hair Fair, if you haven’t already. Also, if you want to be like Edna, dahling, and also try epoque’s colors, hurry over and pick up their gift.

Kiss Kiss

Kiss kiss, hurry now. Tell me how it works for you.

Bandana Day

Hair Fair 2012 is coming to a close today, which means it’s also bandana day – time to take off our virtual wigs to remove our hair and show we care.*

Bandana Day!

If you want to purchase a bandana and participate, they can be found on any of the four Hair Fair sims (Garden, Sand, Flower, Water) in the Wigs for Kids booth. The bandanas available were created by incredibly talented designers and bloggers, and each are only 50L (and transferable!).

Peaceful bandana day

I knew I wanted to combine the beautiful scarf bandana from Lelutka with this great Summery dress from Maitreya. The dress has been sitting in my inventory for a while just waiting for a chance to show up in a picture.
*A paraphrasing of the Hair Fair slogan for Bandana Day – I didn’t come up with it on my own, I’m not that clever.

Staying In

Okay, a couple of things to get back in the blogging frame of mind…

GSpot Organics is a store that’s new to me, but I really like what I’ve seen so far. They have a mini dress out at One Voice with quite a few options – the fine knit version is my favorite. I was going to wear it out, but it’s late, so I think I’m going to be staying in tonight… man, I’m old.

Staying In

You really really want to see the back of this hair – it’s so pretty! I took a picture – it’s on my Flickr.

Speaking of, the gift from Exile at Hair Fair 2012 is basically the same as the hair above, but with different bangs (and streaks). It comes in 4 tones, which pretty much cover the whole range – check them out:

Exile Gift at Hair Fair

I don’t think I need to say anything more about One Voice than has already been said. Except, maybe, that it’s ending tonight – everything is still up as of right now, but you might want to hurry. The SLurl is below.

Cabin Fever

It started to feel like Spring for a little bit there, but now the bite is back in the air, and it’s just plain cold again. Too cold to be outside once I get home from work. Honestly, I’m a little worried about what the rest of the month is going to hold weather wise. We’ve had a late February/early March blizzard before…

Watching

What was I doing before I started to sit by the window? Mostly roasting marshmallows.

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.

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…
Lounging Around in Umber

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?

Shamrock Tea!

Long day at work, fantastic traditional dinner and now I’m more than ready for some tea to finish off St. Patrick’s Day.

Long day, no tea...yet

Still, it’s hard to work up the energy to actually get moving.

I'm sure I *could* find it...

No reason to be running around when I can’t even remember where I left my darn teapot.

Where did I put that teapot?!?!

Can you tell I have tea on the brain? I want tea!!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Road Trip!

I’m pretty good at getting myself to style an outfit and take pictures, but I’m SO not good at getting those pictures into a blog post!  However, I have some really cool stuff to show you – now would be the time to pay attention…

The Plastik is having a Road Trip sale to help pay for gas while Aikea Rieko takes off around the US to check out what there is out there.  To say I’m jealous can be qualified as the understatement of the year, but let’s set that aside and just say that I hope she has a wonderful time!!! Here are just a few things you can find from the sale:

Boho Prayer - Road Tripping Shredder - Road Trip! Valerian - Road Tripping Road Trips Need Octane
I love the pose from dfo! in the second pic. I crack up every time I look at it.

Right, so, like I said before – the sale is to pay for gas, and because she’s super awesomely creative and can read my mind when I need more Plastik in my life, there’s a sale on a ton of items (79) right in front at the main landing point for Plastik.  Go check it out, and if you want to see some of the other fantastic things on sale – there are more pics on my Flickr.
