Yes, I’m out of the plastik skin I’ve been wearing–for now. I know I’ll slip back into it. It’s calling me as we speak. But, I do like this skin I got from L.Fauna. I never fell into the craze when these skins first came out. They were beautiful, but too soft compared to the curio skins I’ve always worn and adored. However, I bought one the other week and liked it so much that when L.Fauna had her anniversary sale last week, I had to go back and get another. One thing I love about these skins…the lipstick is tintable. Talk about versatility, right?

So the outfit is a bit…what’s the word? Oh, black. Yeah. I’m morose morbid this week. With everything I’m going through in rl lately, I’m starting to get the feeling that death is peaking around every corner just waiting for the inevitable. Is it better to have love and lost than to never have loved at all–and then just die? Good question. I’ll have to ponder. For some reason the wry smile on my avi just makes this all so much more amusing.

Finally got around to going to the sale at Fri.day. Worth the lag to get in there and grab a few things. There’s even new hair on sale, and it’s fantastic. Don’t you agree? I always go for the banged version, but there’s also one without. With the sale, you can buy the fatpack and not feel guilty!! And pick up some tees…and jackets…and jeans.

Oh and have you seen these new heels? That’s right…these heels. The new ones from Maitreya Gold. I’m dying. I want them in every color. The ankle piece is color changing, with plenty of options! They’re simple, elegant, and so damn easy to wear.

Still wondering why I have 32k in my inventory Atom? Lol. Tonight my friend Atomic made me pull out the calculator and actually try to figure out how many items on average I’ve bought each day I’ve been on sl. We’ve figured it’s somewhere between six and nine. I think I need to replace this addiction with something more constructive like alcohol. Though honestly…alcohol is more expensive. And I love my liver….it’s been very good to me.

There’s a sale at Pink Outfitters that lasts until June 2nd. Perhaps you haven’t heard of this? I hope you have. So, go! Yes, this is an order. Bought a whole truck load of items, but this jacket is my favorite.

And the glasses, of course, are Shade Throne for The Dressing Room, hurry over there and grab them before they’re gone because new items should be coming soon!

Hmm what else is there to say about this outfit, except that I love it? I must have worn it for about four days, all the while listening to one kick ass playlist. How many times can I hear Tiesto feat. Tegan and Sara – Feel it in My Bones? I don’t know, I’m still listening!

This is a rebirth. Figuratively, of course. While I was going to delete my posts from before–and/or start a new blog, I couldn’t do that. Some things, you hold onto…others, well you let go. By letting go of one part of sl, I’ve returned to the part that makes the most sense: shopping. In the end, it’s amazing how a couple hundred lindens can make me feel like a new person. Speaking of new (see what I did there? huh? Yeah, lame segue…) I love, love, love the new K&CO racerbacks. I wish they came in solids, too. I’d buy them all. Makes me want to break out the sewing machine and make a few in rl.

I saw someone wearing the Lionheart skins from Plastik the other day for the first time…I nearly fell over in my chair. They have the sexiest eye make up of any skins I’ve seen. Of course I had to have one–and of course it was hard as hell picking just one. Somehow, I managed. While I loved the Myth tone, I felt a little pale, so I went with my second favorite, Fable. Oh and the hi-def option? Brilliant.

Note: Some of the poses I’m using are from this week’s Stumblebum. Get them now, before the 28th, while you can!

Wow…that was longer than a week

Yeah, I took a break for longer than week.  I’ve been back on second life, but…the blogging bug didn’t bite again until now.  And wow, I missed a lot of shopping too.  Which is probably good since I’m strapped for lindens after quitting all but one gig.  However, I’m happier.  Much happier.  And in the end that’s what matters.  Happiness and shoes.  Oh shoes ❤

Winter is coming.  Here in Southern California, that generally means that we wear pants instead of shorts and a long sleeve t-shirt…possibly a sweater or a hoody.  So these “winter” styles may not look all that warm, but I’m sweating them just seeing them on my avi.  Oh how I long for colder weather.  But, it should be noted that, as the hot weather withers away, I get less and less sexy.  Which I guess is still sexy…my bf sure isn’t complaining.  Of course he fell in love with the cute, clothed me–a quality which indubitably made me fall for him.  Ok, enough with that sappiness

On to the clothes…

Why can’t you be more like me

a water massager's is the purest love I've ever known

a water massager's the purest love I've ever known

So I’ve been listening to the new Third Eye Blind cd non-stop.  I didn’t even know they had come out with a new one, but when I was picking up the new Pearl Jam, I saw it and nearly peed myself.  Stephan Jenkins is the poet of my dark heart.  We even have the same alma mater.  Go bears!  That’s how to live…get a degree from the best public university in the world and become a musician.  Well, his lyrics have somewhat inspired this outfit.  A lot of what he writes about is struggle–with addiction, depression, letting go–and not necessarily from his point of view but from that of those he’s loved.  He’s the self-proclaimed moth to the dark flame of so many.  Anyways…on to what you really care about…the clothes.

Play a little less rough…
