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!

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:

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.

There really isn’t anything else like it…

My best friend spent most of the day controlling my television, which can be one of the most boring things ever. While we have a lot in common, she has a penchant for watching reality TV that can be just painful. There’s only so many times I can watch the Real Housecats of San Bernadino before I want to claw my eyes out. It usually leaves me sitting around wondering when can we ever do something else.

There MUST be something better to watch...

Not that I do much other than watch TV when I’m alone. But I think that has a lot to do with my never getting to choose what’s on my television – like ever. When I do get to choose, it’s almost always something on one of the history channels. There’s this channel – the whole channel is like a train wreck. It’s the “wealth” channel on cable. I don’t know if you’ve watched it, but it often has programs like you’d find on the history channel – you know, when it still showed stuff about history instead of reality shows. Anyway, it had a show on about Roman history and I couldn’t stop myself from watching. I tried, but I couldn’t stop.

Dubious

I’m a little dubious of their “sources” – it’s like facts had no bearing on the show.I’m not talking about little mixups, but mis-identifying emperors, or who built the Coliseum – you know, little things like that. They’re a TV show, they should check their facts – in my humble opinion. And where do they find their “academincs”? Seriously, who would hire these people? Sigh.

Dance Par-tay!

A super cute outfit like this, and it makes me want to dance. And dance, and dance, and dance…

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.

Ceremonial Lioness

Sometimes, what you wear becomes a part of you. I suppose this means you should be careful when you wear something like this…

Predatory

I saw this the first time I teleported in to the Back to Black event, and I was amazed. Have you ever seen something and it just touched you? That’s how it was with this. It’s … just beautiful.

Feel your way

Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays – what’s there not to like about a day dedicated to expressing how much you love the people in your life?

Whether you’re waiting…

Lonely

Wondering…

Hello?

Or certain…

Feel

Regardless of your relationship status, I hope today – and always – you have love in your life.

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).
