Good use for paper…

I deal with a lot of paper every day, and sometimes I think the best use for it is as confetti. On the other hand, there are other options…

A very good use of files...

I’ve had my share of medical files as well – probably more than my share – which is part of why I like this collar from .Shi (for Back to Black) so much. The journey through and to mental health can be extraordinarily frustrating, and awareness is a huge step in the right direction.

I know I’m running close to closing time, but quickly get over there and learn a bit, there is a lot of good information around. That isn’t even mentioning the personal stories that people have shared, sometimes all it takes for someone to get help is for them to know that they aren’t the only ones going through this – they’re not alone. No, we’re not alone. So… go, learn…shop.

Morning Light

That time of day when you’ve been out (or in) and it feels like the rest of the world is finally asleep – when the first light of morning creeps in… that’s my favorite.

Bask

I think I’ve missed too many days to really do the 12 days of lingerie, but I do always enjoy the look of a well made corset (in either life).

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.

Where did August go?

No, seriously… where did it go?  Because the last time I checked, it had just started and I was all ready to have a somewhat relaxing month – and then I woke up and remembered I still had to go to work.  Man, if I didn’t have bills… or a serious addiction to really cool SL stuff…

Anyway, since today is the last day of August, it’s the last day of the Platinum Hunt – you know, the one I told you about before?  And totally meant to write more about, but August ran past me like a toddler with with a contraband cookie. Right, so, since it’s the last day of the hunt, I thought I’d taunt show you some (more) of the goodies that you can pick up for 10L each until the end of the day today (in case you haven’t already).

Ha! Platinum Platinum Acid & Mala
The hunt items are the Mustache Pearls from Ha! (comes with a scripted version to where the mustache wiggles – it’s awesome!) and Messed Memory Wired Set from Acid & Mala (just beautiful detail).

Platinum and Escher Reale Platinum Platinum Berries Platinum Deviance Platinum SLink, Blitzed & dekade Platinum Rockberry, Magika and Just Me
The hunt items in these pics are the Acid & Mala set again; the dress from *Reale* (Holds up to rezzing, and dancing – I tested it!); the top from Berries Inc.; the Enchantress set from Deviance/Rockberry Kalista skin; the sunglasses from Blitzed/jacket from SLink/skin from [dekade]; the skin from Rockberry/top from *Just Me*/hair from Magika. More pics (including some stuff from the hunt not covered here) on my Flickr.

All of these items are incredible and showcase some of the best designers/creators out there.  As an aside, I have to point out something that I love about the Berries Inc shirt.  I love how the artwork on the system shirt and the prim are continuous (depending on whether or not I’ve messed it up with a pose).  LOVE IT.  It shows an incredible attention to detail, something I appreciate, but totally don’t have the patience to do for myself (which just makes me appreciate it more).

Blogger Challenge (and Beautiful Baiastice)

Fair warning: this is going to be longer than usual.

I thought it would be fun, and motivating (aka – getting me off my lazy blogger seat), to participate in Alicia Chenaux’s blogger challenge this week.  Today is: Why did you become a blogger? How has it enriched your life?

I became a blogger because… (I feel like I’m back in school answering essay questions.  I’ve never been able to respond to a writing prompt in any other way, so it isn’t intended sarcastically toward anyone but myself for not being creative enough to think of a different way to phrase things.)
Okay, trying again: I became a blogger because I wanted to make my real life friends jealous, and I wanted to intice them to come play with me in Second Life ™.  I know they would love it, but they’re lazy losers.  Why am I friends with them if they’re lazy losers?  Because I love them, they’re my squishies and I shall call them squishies!  (And other things, but mostly squishies.)  Also, I was started to get bored in SL, and I was tired of taking pictures and sending them around to my friends by e-mail – so, they suggested that I blog my pictures (not only would it give  my pics a bit of direction, but also I would just have to send around a link instead of files.

Speaking of doing just that – I saw this dress from Baiastice at The Dressing Room (Blue) and immediately  thought of one of my two favorite people in the world.  See, she has a particular shade of blue that is her blue, so I tried to keep her in mind while I put this outfit together. This superheroine in a blue dress is for you G (I made her as blonde as I could)!

Baiastice - The Dressing Room (Blue)

I think the most enriching part of blogging that I have found is how jealous it makes my RL friends of all the awesome stuff I find.  (They’re lazy losers, I can make them jealous, it’s ok.) It has also given me an outlet to share what I enjoy (SL, shopping and styling) with other people (anyone who I make read this).  Oh, and I don’t have to spend nearly as much time being all “come look at the cool thing I put together on my computer screen!”

In honor of that, one more pic of that dress, with the slimmer skirt – I had to use this pose because it’s called “cartoon birds braided your hair this morning” from dfo! G’s favorite princess is Cinderella, so I thought it was appropriate. (I lurve you, G! And I promise to someday do Cinderella justice!)

Baiastice - The Dressing Room (Blue)

On a more serious note, blogging as also given me an opportunity to interact with very talented and creative designers in Second Life, as well as brought me greater awareness of the possibilities of SL as a whole since I expanded my blog reading once I started writing – and that is something for which I cannot express my gratitude enough.
