I have been dying to go to the beach. Unless you count living in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay area for over two years (and it can’t really be counted since I didn’t spend any time on the coast), I haven’t been to an actual beach in five years. This is horrible. What have I been doing with my free days in the summer? Oh, I know….sleeping to avoid getting heat sickness. That’s right. This is why sl is fantastic. I can pretend I’m going to a beach. No, it’s not the same thing, but my avatar can’t get skin cancer, so it works.

Boom has some of the cutest bikinis on sl out at the moment. Hopefully, you’ve seen them before now. They’re mix and match–there’s two styles of tops, four styles of bottoms. And they come in plenty of colors and patterns. Plus, they’re only 75L a piece. Who can resist that? As far the tube top from Boom, that was a stumblebum item, however there’s some similar solid ones available that do the trick.

I told myself I’d never buy this shirt from Mr. Poet. Not because it’s a men’s shirt. I don’t mind editing prims to hell and back–oh and I did, I did. But because every scene/emo boy on sl has this shirt and then some. When I first saw it, I thought it was great. I still think it’s great, actually; I wouldn’t have bought it if I didn’t. But then I saw it again and again, and each time it was worn the same way. Boys, please be a bit more creative? Hopefully, I’ve managed to pull off something different with it.

Oh and new tattoo from Aitui called Number 1 Dime. I just cracked and downloaded the Emerald Beta. Love the 2.0 features, but wasn’t willing to put up with a standard viewer or a bugged out version. However, I really haven’t had any problems with the beta and it’s SO much faster. SO much. Wait what was I saying? Oh right, the tattoo. I just love the placement of it. It’s not very look at me–well unless you’re looking at me from behind. Number 1 Dime is a song, right? Just kidding…sorta.

Wait. I completely forgot. I was in Hawaii a year and a half ago. How the hell did I manage to forget Hawaii?

I just wrapped up a 36 hour work weekend–three 12 hour days–wrapping up a week in which I broke up with my sl partner after 6 months. Oh and guess who came knocking this morning? Not the ex. Needless to say, I’d like to kick the shit out of something right about now. Instead, I shopped and just dressed like someone who just got finished kicking the shit out of something.

Did you know that Action has new, well new-ish, clothes? I didn’t. Despite their participation in things like Super Bargain Saturday and Project Themeory, I never really made it into the store to look around. Finally, I got around to it, and I must say, I’m broke. Thanks Action! No, but seriously, if you haven’t, go there. Go there now. I command thee! The top I’m wearing? Action. If that isn’t reason enough, I don’t know what is.

Crazy about 50L Fridays

what was I supposed to do?

what was I supposed to do?

As usual, This Is A Fawn has made me happy.  Halloween is my favorite-ist (yeah it’s that good) holiday!  And combine my favorite tee from TIAF and add some blood and you’ve got a whole lot of win.  Overall, it was an alright 50L Friday.  A few things I didn’t get, but I picked up some awesome stuff, like this Psychiatrist’s Shelf from Penny Dreadful Arcade.  It has three poses and a whole lot of crazy to it.  Which inspired this ensemble. And the hair from !lamb is lovely–but what person in their right mind lets their roots grow out that much when they’re a peroxide blonde?

Gotta love crazy, it’s the new black…
