#35 would I? could I?

Say!
In the dark?
Here in the dark!
Would you, could you, in the dark?

from Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss

Patricia Cool Pink back

When someone in Second Life says something silly to a friend like – “You can’t wear that in public!” it gets my hackles up!

I do! I love it, Sam-I-am!
And I would wear it in a boat.
And I would wear it with a goat…

And I will wear it in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
It is so good, so good, you see!

So I will wear it  in a box.
And I will wear it  with a fox.
And I will wear it in a house.
And I will wear it  with a mouse.
And I will wear it  here and there.
Say! I will wear it  ANYWHERE!    (heavily misquoted by me!)

This fabulous, sensuous and beautifully crafted gown by James Mohna Lisa has delicate details, lovely lines and the special SL glue that makes it totally safe to wear anywhere on the grid. Anywhere warm. …and take a bodyguard because you will look ravishing!

#34 give thanks

give thanks

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues. ~Cicero

In New Zealand we don’t celebrate thanksgiving – but it is a lovely festival that I have enjoyed learning about from my American friends in Second Life.

I give thanks for the creators in SL – constantly amazing me. Today it is all about the details. These photos are pretty much raw, just cropped.

Snooty 2

This jacket from erratic has been getting a lot of exposure – because it is GREAT! The details are beautifully done and the mesh is very wearable. I have teamed it with a leather skirt from Maitreya.

Snooty 5 Snooty 1

The boots I am wearing have cut out & contrasting leather which is stylish and a little retro. They come 4 color variations to a pack from (Kunglers) at this month’s round of L’Accessories.

Snooty 3

The last 3 things that I’m giving thanks for and writing about today are:

1. the hair from enVOGUE – Cassandra Rain has made fantastically blended hairbases – so they combine with the HUD colors to make a very smooth look. This Marilyn hair has the modern retro look I was hunting for – happy days!

2. the steampunk detailed earrings by Cherelle Capra from a set available at Genre – YUMMY.

3. the decor – I stumbled into this adorable thanksgiving set by 24Karat Roux and immediately felt right at home.

How to Get Milky White Skin: Natural Skin Whitening Tips

#1, Avoid the Sun

It means we should avoid direct sun light. To reduce the sun light effect on skin, we must wear sunscreen cream with SPF 40 or even higher.

#2. Cover Up

We must wear more clothes and expose less skin. This should prevent the sun burn. In addition to it, we should add sunscreen under our makeup foundation, even if it has the sunscreen function, to maximize protection for our face skin.

Sakura 2

 

..or you could wear this great pale skin (even lighter than my regular pale) from October’s 4seasons. I love the way she has done the shading. It is an interesting challenge to dress a new skin tone- and I love the way this Sakura hair with bears and flowers – a random gatcha prize from TRUTH and the {Modern Kimono} Set 3, by Tyr Synister for C88 look so fantastic together. My makeup is from October’s new kinetic lipstick set and her eclectic eyeshadow set. The pose is from Image Essentials – Graceful Elegance set.

I entered this closeup into October’s  ‘natural beauty’ contest – some of us really are milky pale. What do you think?

#32 the little pink dress

“Frozen yogurt is tastier than ice cream, nobody is too old for cartoons, bald men are sexy, chocolate is the best medicine, BIG books are better, cats secretly rule the planet, and everything should be available in the color pink, including monster trucks.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

Maybe it’s a phase..  maybe this is my “year of pink”…  whatever the reason, I chose this T33*fy Flutter Dress from the many options available at the November C88.  Both short and long versions of Maxi Gossamer’s Gypsy Flower Amulet of Antimony look great with the dress, and teamed with a pair of killer heels from FINESMITH and my Killing Time watch from my hmm somewhat extensive wardrobe I’m set to go.

#31 Halloween retrospective

I am learning something I suspect many have learned before – don’t let the idea (or plan) get so big that you end up writing NOTHING!

Second Life Halloween – the things that stand out this year are the over the top dramatic and lovely offerings from so many designers. For me ‘the look of the season’ was fabulous group gift horns from Vintage jewels worn with glorious orange eyes from [ MUDSKIN ] and PICHI Apricot lipstick  – I was able to wear them with nearly everything for 2 weeks! My grand plan was to put all of the outfits in … so here are 3.

Halloween framed Halloween lying arm down Halloween lying

I had a bit of fun trying all the pose props set out in the spooky woods at Image Essentials. If you have never been there Image essentials has photo studios, shops and areas set up seasonally (or whenever Kay and her team feel like changing) … all free to use for group members!
