Make Love, Not War

1 Sjaja_002

Yes, it’s true. We have a trailer decked out in psychedelic decor tucked into a corner at home. It’s a long story of how it came to be and probably only has significance to us. But still…it’s there, overlooking the northern side of the beach.

It’s pretty tacky, to be honest. I bought the trailer and then applied the most gaudy tie-dyed texture I could find to the interior walls, tossed down some green shag carpet, threw in a couple of bean bags with some lava lamps sitting on milk crates, and there you go – one groovy pad. I won’t subject you to interior shots – suffice it to say, it’s the stuff of which LSD flashbacks are made.

When I tried on this top, I immediately got a 60’s vibe. It’s part of an outfit from **Sjaja**, available at this round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room. I doubt the creator had the same inspiration I had, but that’s just one thing I love about fashion – the ability to take what one person creates and give it our own spin.

It’s what sets us each apart…that little spark in each individual we let shine through.

Peace out.

I Don’t Always Hate Green

1 LG Templemore_023

I’m not sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m not a huge fan of the colour green. Yes, as a redhead in SL I probably should embrace this hue, but most tones just make me think of sea-sickness or mushy peas. But I do love jewel tones, and this shade of emerald is no exception.

1 LG Templemore_013

This dress is a classic – a simple sheath that is made special with the details – the crisscrossed back, the ribbons that form the cap sleeves, the shimmery satin fabric that just skims your curves. It’s perfect for an evening out for dinner, a party or the theatre.

What is even better about this particular dress is that it comes with a 10-colour texture change HUD and today (Tuesday, November 12) it’s only 50L at the Liv Glam Boutique for the SLebrity SLection Street Sale. Make sure you take the limo attached – you can only find it at this event!

Best & Worst Meme: A Tale Of Two Peeps

1 Blah 1211_008

I could easily quote Charles Dickens here, but I’m not going to go the easy route. OK, so I kinda did in the title, but forgive me – Dickens is one of my favourite authors so I couldn’t let it go without mention!

Miss Berry has asked us to share our Bests & Worsts related to Second Life. At first glance, this seemed to be an easy challenge, but while thinking about the questions I realised it’s not that simple. There are so many good – and bad – things about Second Life it is hard to narrow it down. I shall, however, do my best not to make this the worst meme I’ve done!

Here’s what she asked us to do:

Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the questions and answers below, delete my answers and input your own. The twist is, the final question you need to change and make up your own best & worst that you want to share. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments of this post.
