Please say to me you'll let me hold your hand


Ever have a Beatles kind of day? Earlier I was sad about something so I put on Let It Be. Then I felt better, so it was Here Comes the Sun. Then I got a migraine and took a lot of drugs and the song became Helter Skelter… OK, next I demand a nice happy three-chord song. How about I Wanna Hold Your Hand?

I'm wearing one of Anya Ohmai's dresses, the simple onepiece. "Onepiece" is the Japanese term for dress…it's nicely descriptive. All in one, not a skirt and blouse. Also, I have Plurk again for those who feel like adding me back after my plurk-break! I'm here.

Tomorrow (June 13th) begins the Etheria jewelry event. It starts at 4 SLT, and will showcase the likes of Lolapop (I'm wearing Lola's jewelry set here), Dark Mouse, Kess Kreations, Caroline's, and MONKEE. A number of clothiers will also be showing designs, beautiful gowns to accentuate the jewelry. I'm in Ingenue's gorgeous Valdez gown, here. Also featured will be Lark, Moonshine Designs, Blue Blood, and Evie's Closet. Tomorrow this SLURL will work after 4PM SLT:

For those of you who aren't yet following Hunain Bellic's blog, go see it here! He's making awesome posts, and his styling is adorable.

It's the start of summer vacation for her, and I'm already wondering how to fill the hours. I need a hamster mill!

Chat chapeau

Radio Signals

This is Miss Radio Signals of Scribble. I took this photo on the sly, so please ignore that hat she's wearing, okay? It's a small sneaky preview of something awesome she'll release in a day or two in her shop. At any rate, she's adorable.

I screamed to feel it touch the sky

Three Mountains and a Wood

ALL I could see from where I stood
Was three long mountains and a wood;
I turned and looked the other way,
And saw three islands in a bay.

Three Mountains and a Wood

So with my eyes I traced the line
Of the horizon, thin and fine,
Straight around till I was come
Back to where I’d started from

Three Mountains and a Wood

And all I saw from where I stood
Was three long mountains and a wood.    
Over these things I could not see:
These were the things that bounded me.

-- Edna St. Vincent Millay, Renascence

Pomp and circumstance and piercings

Ellantha Larsson

Was it just two summers ago that we shared some land, Miss Ellantha? Feels like a million years in SL and RL time. Today marks a big moment for me -- my little daughter graduated from Pre-K. She's a kindergartener, and it's freaking me out a bit. I keep remembering back to those sleepless nights of infanthood. Teething on my knuckles, potty training, learning the ABCs. And now she's entering formal schooling… I seriously hope I don't procrastinate on her work the way I do on my own. Anyway, that's what kids are for, right? Turning us into better people…

I forgot to talk about Miss Ellantha here. She's wearing her own jewelry creation on her pretteh face -- a brand new set named Mynx. I love her face jewelry so very much. It's delicately and carefully made by a connoisseur of primwork, and instantly turns your avatar into something dashingly unique. (Please go visit Ellabella here!)

Ekaterina by Silver Rose Designs


I gasped when I saw the pricetag (900L) on the new Silver Rose Designs Ekaterina dress. Then I realized that the dress earns every cent (and more) of the cost… There are 30 pieces in the outfit folder. It has so many options for sleeve, bodice, and skirt that it'll take your avatar to Gor, Caledon, The Deck, Hard Alley, and beyond… The workmanship isn't skimped either. I love the quality of the prims and fabric, and think that each style of dress works really well in itself. I haven't shown all of the options in these photos, either -- there are at least a few skirt styles that I didn't photo.

My favorite is probably the long babydoll -- such a unique and adorable idea for the skirt, and balanced out by the fluff of the sleeves. I'd buy this to spoil a new avatar and have them go nuts with the options! The creator also treats her group to wonderful items, and the cost of the outfit is a small price to pay for such loyalty.

I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief


This is a skin and tattoo review. I suppose. I'm honestly kind of over big skin reviews in which the reviewer posts picture after picture of themselves in someone's skin line… Yep, I used to do that all the time. Now I just think: damn, so that's how one particular avatar looks in all those skins. I love you all. I just don't find the reviews very useful, and would rather see how a blogger styles up one skin rather than, y'know, so many that the skins and makeups become a blur.

So. This skin is a unisex-makeup skin from Ugly Duck, the Kala. The nether bits are clearly suited toward the different genders, but the face suits boyish girls and girlish boys (and people who don't like a lot of makeup on their faces). I'm wearing it with a new tattoo from La Malvada Mujer -- a small meditation upon Pasolini. I love you two, Faina and Bliss. Come have my prim babies. (SLURL to Ugly Duck) (SLURL to La Malvada Mujer)

I'm taking a wee break from Plurk, ok? I'm sure I'll head back there eventually. ♥
