Today is my Rez day, yup I’ve been in SL for the big SIX now. I’m not sure if I’m happy or sad about that.

But anyhow.. Caelan Hancroft of Cae has made this beautiful set called Pomona which is pictured above. The set comes in several different metals and I’m showing it in the Gold. You can see the full set here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Truth%20District/180/214/33 The let is absolutely to die for, and Caelan Hancroft of Cae makes beautiful and more importantly original mesh pieces that are so lovely.

Are you ready for this weekend in Second Life shopping? I’m seriously so excited. First of all this skin from Glam Affair called Amberly just came out today and I will be working on a much larger post of it but I wanted to encourage everyone to go to Glam Affair and try a demo of this beautiful skin!

Also the pose that I am using in this set comes out tomorrow from Exposeur, and its a modesty wreath that is playful and sexy all rolled into one. RubyStarlight Writer makes some amazing poses over there at Exposeur and if you join her Exposeur Gold Group there are a ton of very generous group gifts for you.

Also, Cheeky Pea has this cute mesh fireplace for a group gift with all of the stuff that you see on here and Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil has this cute mesh Christmas tree on the marketplace for 25L. Also, the With Love hunt opens today and I am wearing Caelan Hancroft of Cae’s set that you can pick up for 10L called Flourish.

Are you ready for the Arcade Gacha tomorrow?

Cae – With Love

The “With Love” hunt is starting tomorrow and I can’t wait. This set of jewelry made by Caelan Hancroft is one of the many things that you can basically “steal” for 10L. The Flourish set comes with Earrings and a Necklace and it is absolutely gorgeous. All of Cae’s jewelry is 100% original mesh and I’m super proud of her.. let me say that again!

I am also wearing hair from Elikatira, skin from Glam Affair in Roza and eyes from Ikon.

Entangled

So the jewelry that I’m wearing today is another set from Ms. Caelan Hancroft of Cae, located in Truth District. This set is a mesh set called Entangled and its just beautiful. You can change between many different types of metals effortlessly by clicking on all of the pieces or just one. I am also wearing a brand new hair from Truth, and this beautiful dress from Baiastice that is available at Fair, opening today. My skin is Saga from LAQ.

The pose in the first photo is from Focus poses, and the second is from Olive Juice. I also just wanted to remind you of Caelan Hancroft’s opening party today at 5-7SLT PM at Truth District. There is also a free gift if you join Cae’s group in the notices… so do come and see about that!

Cae’s – Grand Opening 11/17/12

One of the best, and most sweetest girls that I know on the grid is opening her store tomorrow which will be located in Truth District. I’ve seen this girl go from wanting to learn how to make things, to actually making them, and by each shared screen cap I’ve grown prouder and prouder of one of my dearest friends, Caelan Hancroft making her mesh dreams into reality.

Her new jewelry store – Cae, featuring handcrafted mesh jewelry is set for its grand opening tomorrow with a party. DJ Cajsa Lilliehook will be there tomorrow too spinning music from 5slt to 7slt p.m. Her new line has six brand new sets of fabulous mesh jewelry. The one that I am wearing in this post is called “Knotted”.

I hope you can all come and check it out tomorrow and see some of these pieces, just in time for the holidays! I am also wearing hair from Exile, eyes from Ikon, skin from LAQ and my poses are from Focus Poses.

In fall

“Someone like you
Is not without the contradiction
Someone like me
Who`s a living work of fiction
Someone like you
Full of love and light and laughter
Someone like me
Who can`t see what they`re after

What do you do ?
Someone like you
Who would you be?
With someone like me
What do you do?
Someone like you
Who would you be?
With someone like me”

Someone like youI am Kloot

It’s late October and Mon Tissu has made the perfect little Wool Trench Coat in 10 different colors and the mesh cotton pants to go with it. It’s lovely and you of course, need it now.

This hair is brand new from Mr. Truth Hawks and it has a bun and the most adorable little side braid. My poses are from Label Motion and my location is at the Inkwell (yet again) The beautiful jewelry that I am wearing is from one of the most brilliant new mesh jewelry creators that when she launches you will just be amazed.. my lovah Caelan Hancroft. My shoes are from Celoe.

Some of my favorite blogs and bloggers..

Yesterday, Gogo asked What are your top 10 favorite SL blogs? Honestly I read a lot of blogs but of course we all have our own personal preferences.

This is my list in no particular order and I’ll give a reason for each:

Marleen Vaughan of Coffeesmoke: I love this girl, she is the reason that I even started blogging in SL. She invited me to be a part of Coffeesmoke and I was for almost two years before branching off to my own blog. Her posts are funny, real and non contrived. Her writing is top notch and I’ve laughed out loud many times. Also she started another blog called the Concerned Bloggers Association which is worth a look. She also has a shop called Vaughan’s House of Curiosities which is visionary, quirky and fun.

Caelan Hancroft of Simply Stylish Cae inspires me with her adorable face, curvy body and and well thought out photography. Her outfit combinations are amazing.

Grazia Horwitz of GraziaSL.Com I’ve followed this blog for a long time. Grazia to me is an icon in the SL Fashion community. She makes brilliant and sometimes daring style choices but she is flawless. Everything she picks goes perfectly together.

Strawberry Singh of StrawberrySingh.com Berry is awesome sauce. Just look at her blog and you can see why. She is a goddess, untouchable seemingly at first but actually refreshingly down to earth with a very sweet personality. I love her tutorials and windlights.

Luna Jubilee of Luna Jubilee.com This is another blog that I’ve followed for a long time. She has the amazing windlights for download too, blogger boot camp tutorials, and she started the very successful 52 weeks of color blogger challenge. Luna is a sweet, funny and wonderful person the times I’ve been lucky enough to talk with her or hang out in world and her blog is a reflection of that.

Gogolita of Juicybomb.com I love Gogo’s blog because she writes with integrity and she styles herself in some of the most adorable finds from around SL that I probably would not have been aware of without her. I appreciate her blog because she is honest, colorful and juicy like a fresh peach!

It’s only fashion is a collaboration blog of some of the best bloggers in Second life. My favorite being the ever wise and stylish Cajsa Lilliehook mixed with the fun and down to earth mother earth goddessness of Gidge Uriza.. there are many great bloggers on the It’s only fashion blog but I am partial to the both of them and over all it makes for a diverse blog with many tutorials and solid fashion advice.

Annan Adored of Interstyle Fashion. I don’t know her at all aside from finding her on flickr one day but she could be my baby’s momma.. maybe? Seriously her images are gorgeous and I love the way she puts together a photo. Her windlight settings available for download are great too.

Free*Style: I could not make a list like this without including probably the first second life blog that I’ve ever read. Free*Style is my favorite “freebie” blog and mostly like the first that I can remember reading. This blog helped me through my much more noobish days and this blog to me is top quality and worth a read for anyone from the basic new SL user to even the most advanced as there is always something new to learn.


Vaki Zenovka
of Insert Funny name here: She maybe blogs once or twice a month now but when she does its well worth it. Her images are stunning, evocative and eloquent. Her writing to go along with her images is equally as amazing. A very impressive blog, indeed.

Other blogs that I love: Not Quite Pink by Magenta Devinna whom I simply adore, Bouncer Criss of Pixel Phasion 4 Men has a wonderful Mens blog, Lysie Aristocrat of Barbie Does Sl and Lauren Minuet of Flirting with Fashion are all blogs that I love to read as well.

Now this list has variations here and there but don’t get me wrong I appreciate all of the awesome bloggers in SL but these are ones that I’ve chosen because I’ve either followed them for a long time or because I feel there are currently my favorites. So who are yours?

Maid for you

“Talk—half-talk, phrases that had no need to be finished, abstractions, Chinese bells played on with cotton-tipped sticks, mock orange blossoms painted on porcelain. The muffled, close, half-talk of soft-fleshed women.

The men she had embraced, and the women, all washing against the resonance of my memory. Sound within sound, scene within scene, woman within woman—like acid revealing an invisible script. One woman within another eternally, in a far-reaching procession, shattering my mind into fragments, into quarter tones which no orchestral baton can ever make whole again.

― Anaïs Nin

Have you ever wonder what really happened between maids when you were not around? The above is one of my favorite things ever written by Miss Anais Nin. The outfit? It’s from Icing for Lazy Sunday today for 70L and is still available to go and grab. You can have your own moment of “Dirty French Maid Play”

The pose is from Ooo Studios. The Girl? My fabulous friend Caelan Hancroft. My hair is from Truth and her hair is from Lelutka. The furniture in the background is from Lisp.

Sunday Morning Tea

Tea is best served in a fancy kettle with boiling hot water and poured into fancy teacups made of fine china. A spoon to stir and sugar and cream on the side. Secrets are best shared in the sunlight on a chaise lounge curled up in each others arms with spun silk draped over her curves. Women share a special language; a sister hood if you will sometimes finding comfort in each others arms, fit together like two identical spoons in a drawer.

The music of her voice in my ear, such beauty and bliss. Fingers dance and flutter beneath and beyond stretches of skin. Lips met like the sweetest touch sharing the candied kiss of tongues. Every light illuminates and every door way opened. Comfort bound in pleasure, everything makes sense. Close your eyes and let go.

Then when all thought is pushed aside she will meet your darkness with her light.

“I have brought her, laughing,
To my quietly dreaming garden.
For what will be done there
I ask no man pardon.”

-Elsa Gidlow

MOOD has put out these earrings at the Fashion Garret named after the lovely Caelan Hancroft. They are at a very reasonable price right now and I read that a full set is to come.

I am also wearing brand new hair from Lelutka called “Bonjour” and I love this style it is adorable. My dress is from Leezu and it is the Toya Dress. I’ve been wearing a lot of Leezu lately. They are a timeless piece in my SL wardrobe for sure. The shoes are also another wardrobe staple, they are the baby T’s from Pixel Mode. Where ever you are and whatever you are doing I hope you have a great day!
