"It's ok" to clean out the closet....


So Luna Jubliee posted a challenge today, "Closet Clean Out", the challenge calls to mix, match or mix match an outfit and showcase on your blog.

 Here is my outfit, a combination from different stores. Some are newer items, while some pieces are older items that can no longer be found in SL. I found this challenge to be so much fun because I found some items in my inventory that I haven't worn and were collecting dust.... (yes, I'm a pack rat).  So without futher adeu here is the look, I hope you take the blogger's challenge and have fun...

"Pretty Green", my I OLIVE YOU mashup.

 




















Sunday Mornings are usually the time I set aside for SL maintenance,i.e; inventory cleanup time. There is usually an abundance of items thrown about from various hunts and shopping excursions, a causality of the shopaholic disease that many suffer from. Today while rummaging around in my inventory I discovered these pretty green treats.

Now I will admit that I tend to have a monochromatic style, sticking to one range of color when putting a look together. I'm the type of person that opens the crayon box, dumps the crayons out and arranges them by color. I know it's a little OCD, but I really enjoy seeing groups of color arranged in neat little boxes. Today's look is all about the color green. The color commonly associated with envy, and other negative emotions; however for me it's about Olives, as in "I Olive you"!!! so here is my "Olive you" look.

I've got a pocket full of pretty green 
I'm gonna put it in the fruit machine 
I'm gonna put it in the juke box 
It's gonna play all the records in the hit parade- Mark Ronson- Pretty Green

"A Home" from abode















"A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams."- Unknown  

This weekend abode released this beautiful sultry lake home, "The Sephia Lake House". Soft wood textures, high ceilings and large windows create an inviting and tranquil residence. I would like to take this time to point out my two favorite aspects of this home.

The fireplace, which burns with a flame that is rich in color and provides a warm glow to the living room. I enjoy the dark brick and the gold swirl pattern design located on the back of the fireplace. There was one area of the home I didn't initially notice which is why I dubbed it "The Secret Room" located above the main entrance there is a loft style area which I turned into my own version of a "man cave".

The Sephia Lake House sells for 850l, is 200 prims and two bedrooms.

Space Man

















Recently I've been having this feeling that I have been drifting out in well....Space. I suppose it has to with the fact that there are a lot of uncertain things going on in my life or perhaps it's a sign that I've been watching too much Star Trek at night. Either way it's inspired tonight's blog post. 

The Sea Hole, captured my attention with their Dark Pulp Set. This outfit is themed "space exploration" and has a retro feel to it. The astronaut top and spaceship skirt will scream 3...2...1.....Blast Off! As an added bonus Dark Pulp Set has cute over the knee socks that are cleverly designed to accent the entire ensemble.

The Look- Lost In Space

There you go around your tiny world again
Playing space man in your tiny ship
You say you wanna come back down to earth again
When you're down you find your mind and slip


There you go
Just like all the other times before

Pills














While exploring last night I ran across a total must have item in Tableau's Wriggeslworth residence. As soon as I saw the "Purse attack" I knew it had to be mine. Purse attack expels pills and a medicine bottle when in attack mode. I love the old lady stance and double clutch vise grip when wearing this purse. Purse Attack come in three diffrent designs and runs 250l. For those of you that don't know Wriggeslworth are uber cute old folks avies in SL.  If you ever wanted to pick up a cane, walker or motorized scooter this is the place to do it. Now for the look.

"Untouched" by Dutch Touch



















 Today was one of those fun days in SL. I went shopping with my friend Veronique, an italian hottie. Veronique is pretty new to SL and when we heard about this sale at Dutch Touch we knew we couldn't pass it up, after all how can you say no to 500L skins.
Dutch Touch skins are gorgeous; quite flawless in their appearance; and have a quality and style that unsurpassed in SL. I've admired and wanted to try Dutch Touch skins for a while in SL but was always resisted. The word Sale; however, was quite convincing and finally pushed me into the store to make my purchase. I know that this will be the first of many skins I purchase from Dutch Touch. 






















I hope Veroni dosen't mind me sneaking in a photo of her on my blog, but I thought she looked rather cute. I'm trying to convince her to start writing a blog, but she's a bit shy. Let's just keep this photo our little secret.

 Today's outfit is from a SLDD last week. The store Riddle. This outfit is a total WIN. I adore the jacket and sweater dress combo. As someone that had never shopped at Riddle before, I took the SLDD as an opportunity to discover a new store. I have found SLDD to be very useful in finding new stores one of the many reasons why I'm a fan. Riddle has reasonable prices and doesn't skip out when dealing with quality. I left Riddle with the SLDD of the day "Winter Blues" (Shown Above), a pair of brown prim eyes and "Candy Kisses Dress" (Shown Below).  To show my devotion to Riddle I have created two looks of the day, cause it was Love at first sight for Riddle.

Next Best Thing


















Since the holidays started there has been so many new releases, holiday gifties, and sale items....How is a girl supposed to choose what to blog on. Darn my indecisive nature!! while I decide on what to blog on for tomorrow here is the Blogger's challenge I saw earlier last week."My Three things in SL I can't live without". It wasn't hard to pick them.

1) My Shape and Star Tattoos; Yes this counts as one on the list. 
I created my shape back in 2006 when I joined SL. It's roughly been the same, aside from some minor tweaking. My shape has grown to be a bit wider since my Noob days. I suffered from the too skinny syndrome at one point in time. I may not look exactly like Bells in RL, but some would say it's pretty close. After all, Bells works out way more than I do, and doesn't have any need for food.

My star tattoo is one that I picked up along my Noob travels. It also inspired the design for my RL tattoo. I feel that no matter what skin, outfit or look I'm trying to pull off these star tattoos can really help set me apart from others. I rarely wear gloves because of this; although I can be persuaded to from time to time. I also tend to get really annoyed with designers who make "glove" layers necessary for tops.

2) Diamond Bee Necklace from PC
 I have a huge LOVE for PC and the one thing I wear almost daily is this Bee necklace. It sparkles, is gold and I love that it's not on the traditional necklace attachment spot but rather located on the spine. I usually can wear this necklace with any SL look and it works, or at least I tell myself it does.  I would really be sad if one day this necklace was no longer in my inventory. 

3) My Partner in Crime- Frankie Palliard
I've tried to live my SL without him, but in the end it's really not all that fun. This January will be our Three year Friend/anniversary, or friend-a-vesary.  He has stuck by my side during all aspect of my SL life and has been there for me during RL challenges. We just celebrated our first RL holidays as a couple and it was the best Christmas/New Year I had in a long time. Frankie always encourages and provides love and support in everything I attempt. I wouldn't have stuck around in SL for as long as I have if it were not for him. I love him more than anything in my SL Life and he is the most irreplaceable aspect of SL to me.
