Somewhere That’s Green (NEW @ The Secret Store & Tableau Vivant)

Somewhere That's Green

Hello!

Yesterday The Secret Store released this adorably retro dress called “Lulu Vintage Dress”. A few nights ago I watched Little Shop Of Horrors with Mister just because we’re dorks and I was hungry so I said “feed me seymour!” at which point he went on to tell me how as a kid the movie freaked him out, which looking back I could see how any kid would be afraid of plants after watching it, but I was a weird kid so I LOVED this movie, mainly because there were songs to sing, I love musicals! As a kid thought I loved Seymour mainly because he’s played by Rick Moranis and I was a fan of the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids movies, but seeing it now as an adult, you pick up on how greedy he was, he wanted everything and was willing to do whatever he had to do to keep the plant alive so that he would stay a success! He might look dorky, awkward and sweet, but that Seymour is one shady character! If I were in I would have axed that plant the minute I realized I had to give it blood to survive, I mean clearly nothing good was going to come from that Seymour!!

Anywho enough of that chatter! This dress reminded me of the scene where Audrey sings “Somewhere That’s Green” if you are not familiar with the song or movie, she basically talks of her dream of a picture perfect life, and she’s this perfect housewife with a perfect husband and perfect kids and everything is perfect perfect perfect….PERFECT! lol Now this dress is WAY cuter than the dresses in the scene, but it makes you picture a 50’s housewife. This dress comes in an array of solid colors and 4 two tone patterns as well! It is now available @ The Secret Store Mainshop!

Next is a hair release from Tableau Vivant called “Bardot” that happened to match perfectly with being equally retro and elegant. This hair is available at the Tableau Vivant Hair Shop along with another release that I’ll be blogging soon, it’s just as lovely.

Happy Shopping!

When Life Gives You Baggage…Put It In A Pretty Package (Coming Soon @ Glam Affair)

When Life Gives You Baggage...Put It In A Pretty Package

Hello there!

I felt a bit fancy today, mainly because Glam Affair has  a new skin coming soon! This beauty is called “Vera” it’s another full release! (raw photos below) As always I love this skin, if you loved “Candy” for the last round of Arcade you will surely love Vera. One thing about this skin is every single make up I’m in love with, usually there are one or two that I think “I probably wouldn’t wear that on the daily basis” but not Vera, some makeups are even in nice fall colors. I’ll be wearing this for a while that’s for sure. ♥

Rock Solid (NEW @ TDR Fusion)

Rock Solid

Sooo I haven’t done one of Berry’s memes in a while and not because I didn’t want to, but just don’t have the time I used to and honestly I’m quite boring so I never know what to say half the time on most the responses, I’m pretty shy THESE days… SL changes ya! BUT I had to do this one because it is about close friends in SL. (Plus Coral said if I didn’t do this meme she wouldn’t talk to me anymore)

I met Coral Lacey almost 2 years ago (wow time is flying) through a mutual friend… at first I thought she hated me, then I realized she was just a bit shy. We’d known each other to some degree for months never really had a one on one conversation, but for some reason or another I really admired her. I guess because I could tell she was a good person, and she wasn’t one of those people who just want to impress everyone, she is who she is. When I started my blog she was the first person I turned to for advice, she helped me kick start this blog and ever since then she’s had to put up with me, I’m sure she’s regretting that by now! She’s probably the only person in SL I can be brutally honest with even if we’re talking about one another because well….a lot of people get butt hurt alllll the time about everythinggg, people can be extremely sensitive, so it’s nice to have that person to just tell you the truth WITHOUT being a dick about it because you actually value their opinion (Hard to find people who can criticize you with class). On the flip side I can tell her even the most private of things and half the time she’s been there done that (because she’s just as crazy as I am) and knows exactly how I feel and what I’m going through. I’ve never had such a close friend in SL before so I’m grateful to have one as amazing as Coral. ♥

Black Magic Woman (NEW @ Collabor88)

Black Magic Woman

Collabor88 opened yesterday as most of you know. I had a busy day in RL yesterday so I didn’t get to really check out the Collabor88 items for this round. I got a chance to do that today and if you don’t know the theme is basically fabulously creepy (def my thing). I love Halloween! It reminds me a lot of SL, getting to be whatever you want, except in SL that’s an everyday thing.

Earlier yesterday the Tee*fy item wasn’t out yet butttt it is now! Let me tell you, it’s perfection! This gown…. is….everything. The only thing I wish was that there were more colors so I could wear it more often. There is a short version and long version (which I’m wearing) the short version can come with or without the top lace and the long version comes in skirt only as well.

Happy Haunting ♥

Lounging About

Snapshot_249edit

This post is really random nothing makes sense, sorry. I started rezzing things and trying on things I hadn’t worn, then said to myself  “meh why not snap a shot”  I will admit I’ve been wanting to get into home and garden posts more, I think crediting the furniture can sometimes be a pain in the butt, but it gets confusing with people only post the item name exactly how it’s seen inworld. Probably one of my biggest pet peeves with blogs…how do I know what {f.e.} is? Anyway what I’m going to do to make it less painful for me is pasting the item name, but also the creator name to make it less painful for you (whoever reads this damned thing). I think that should work out pretty good for a lazy ass like myself. This way I can finally blog all the furniture I buy, I buy more furniture than clothing…scary I know. Really hoping to get around to more posts like this. ♥
