Dance with Me

Since I can’t get him to go dancing with me in RL -I mean out in public with other people and not the living room – I’ll just have to settle for dancing in SL. Or at least posed dancing. This is part of Diesel Works’ May group gift which includes two couples dance poses. This one is called Groove.

Be a Deer

I finally made my way over to Al Vulo yesterday to see what the May group gift was. It’s this darling faun-type skin that I had to have.  Only one problem there – I’ve never been a deer/faun before! I was asking all over plurk last night where to shop.

At some point I realized I did promise Therathe that I wouldn’t ever do a faun. (I’m thinking he’s not a big fan of hooves.) I cheated and sort of did a half faun-girl because the skin is too cute not to. I got to do my faun and still (sort of) keep my promise.

Keep Calm and Keep Shopping

Do you ever have things that you honestly meant to blog about but they slip your mind? This is one of those things. I had meant to check it out, but I completely forgot about it until Evelyn Hartshon mentioned it on plurk today. D’oh moment!

Anyway, KC & KS as I’ll call it, is still on! All the stores are listed here: http://keepcalmandkeepshopping.blogspot.co.uk/ Several of these stores are brand new to me but I picked up a lot of cute things and if the money holds out I’ll be going back for a few more.

Sleeping Koala’s vintage floral dress is so cute. And the Union Jack on it is just subtle enough that a Yankee like me can wear it and not feel silly.

And this super cute heart necklace from je suis. You can either buy the long version or the short one. Both are texture changeable.

And then from CoLoReTa’s is this cute top and skirt. I think I just found a new favorite spring outfit.

The event ends tomorrow but if I have the money to get some more items I’ll blog those too.

A Day in Paradise

Days like today I wish I could be whisked  away from home and off to a tropical  paradise where I can wade in the ocean and feeling the tropical breeze on my face or the squish of the sand between my toes.

A special thank you to a lovely lady on my plurk Miss Delusional G. who directed me to this beautiful sim!

52 Weeks of Color – #22 Cobalt

Cobalt is a color I can really get on board with. I love blue of any kind and cobalt blue is such a beautiful rich color. I picked the mesh dress of the same color from *BOOM*. I find myself buying more and more mesh which I’m sure is the case with many of you. My favorite part? To be able to switch poses without having to adjust any prims!

I do run into a slight issue with photographing mesh. I usually end up with white patches or little white dots around the mesh that need to be filled in. It may just be the FS viewer but idk. SL v3 crashes every time I try and take pics so that rules that one out. Oh well, guess I just need to keep tweaking things.

On a more positive note, I visited the Skin Showcase  which is AMAZING! I am so broke right now! I picked up this lovely skin from Izzie’s. I’ve never tried her skins before but I love this one.

52 Weeks of Color – #21 Lemon Chiffon

The weeks are just flying by! Week 21 is almost halfway, whoa!

I’ve known lemon chiffon is a type of cake but until now I never thought about it as color. Anyway, RL is crazy hectic now since the school year is coming to a close. 3 1/2 weeks and I’ll be finished with the madness. Until then, I may happen to be a bit lazy with the blogging.
