Don't Miss Wild Spring at Swank!


There are just a few more days to experience Wild Spring at Swank, and you don't want to miss it. This event just keeps getting better and better, and the offerings are truly delightful, from fashion to decorating our world.

Here I'm sharing a must-have bikini and coverup set by Sage, called May, with lots of accessories. The texture options are great so we can create all sorts of different, coordinating looks. My pose is by Glitter Poses, part of the Emma set. I really like them! The Charleston Patio Settee is created by Outside the Box! The set includes all the items shown on the table and the fern plant. The candles light up! I checked out all the poses included, they're top drawer.

Drag these wonderful items home with you! It's what I do. ;)

My Virtual Girl, You May See But Can You Feel


I sent you a letter 
Several pages long 
Didn’t mind waiting to hear how 
You were getting on 
Used to have conversations 
On the telephone 
Even though I could only reach you 
If you were at home – now it’s 

Just a virtual world 
And you’re my virtual girl 
Still you seem oh so real 
It’s just a virtual world 
And you’re my virtual girl 
You may see, but can you feel? 

It may be a case 
Of cabin fever 
Cut off from the world
Seems like forever 
This crazy language 
I don’t understand 
Can’t help thinking it’s getting 
Way out of hand – now it’s 

Just a virtual world 
And you’re my virtual girl 
Still you seem oh so real 
It’s just a virtual world 
And you’re my virtual girl 
You may see but can you feel? 

Sitting in a cafĂ© 
Like robots typing away 
And still we struggle trying to think of 
What we should say – now it’s 

Just a virtual world 
And you’re my virtual girl 
Still you seem oh so real 
It’s just a virtual world 
And you’re my virtual girl 
You may see, but can you feel?

                                               ~~ Virtual Girl, Craig Hallen

Safety Levels on Flickr - A Blogger's Pitfall


I had a rather frantic weekend and week so far, after being zapped by Flickr - someone was offended by one or more of my pics not being designated "Moderate." Pay attention to the designations as Flickr designates, NOT as you might, because I can guarantee they are far more stringent than you might expect. For example, a thong bikini = Moderate. Nipple COVERS = Moderate. My penance was to redesignate each and every one of my over 2,000 pics into Flickr-correct categories. Twice. Glazed eye expression.

My first pic above is..."Safe!" However, the pic below is...definitely "Moderate." My gorgeous outfit by [JUSTICE] has skimpy bit part coverage for both top and bottom. I'm willing to bet 95% of Second Life bloggers would designate this Safe in their photostream. They would be wrong and at risk of doing the same penance if someone clicks the "I'm offended" button. It isn't worth it to try. But I do sincerely ask more Flickr groups to include Moderate pics. You don't want to miss including spectacular fashion like this, do you? ;)

Home & Garden Expo - Texture Me True (aka The Ceremony)


Finally. Finally!
The doors were locked, the lights turned out
And the employees left for the evening.
They gathered silently
to affirm, and witness, love's vows.

I'm sharing some beautiful textures created by Texture Me True, available at the RFL Home & Garden Expo 2017. Designers, builders of small or large scale, and even bloggers will certainly be interested in these. I even used one of the textures on a wall as a backdrop.

Our world is made much more interesting with beautiful textures!

Home & Garden Expo - Little Llama


A warm weather activity and need a place to socialize and chill? How about these fun items by Little Llama, found at the RFL Home & Garden Expo! The Cooler Hut, well, how clever! It looks just like a cooler. The OctoPicnic table seats 8, and is available in 3 textures. The Condiment Lights hunt gifts really do light up! Invite your friends over. These items are compact enough to fit in a yard, or make it your food/drink area next to a ball field. I think tiny house dwellers will get a kick out them too!

You will find those, and more, as you stroll through the lovely creations which beautify our virtual world! Whether you are decorating a home, tiny garden or windowsill, or industriously landscaping a whole sim, this is the event for you!

The Ocean, Cute Swimwear and You


I'm not sure this section of the beach is the greatest for surfing, what with the rocks and boat over there, but perhaps if we paddle out farther and avoid? :p  There is a wonderful breeze playing havoc with my hair - Spring Breeze by Doe, at Whimsical. My darling retro swimsuit is by Sn@tch, called Vivian Polkadot Swimsuit. This is one of the riot offerings, with lots of colors included for classic avies and mesh bodies via an Omega hud. Check out the back of it below, and I added the sleeves that are included. I actually wore the swimsuit around while shopping! I added a little black skirt; the waist stripes rose above it and I must say it looked super cute.

In the first pic, I'm using a pose by Secret Poses, called Surf Girl (2). This is from a collection of poses - just add the board and voila, you're posed! Who doesn't need some surfing poses, really...t'is the season.
