The Resentful Housewife

blg_Theresentfulhousewife

So last night I’m all cozy in my bed, getting my daily blog fix, when I happen across Strawberry Singh’s most recent post. When I saw it, I audibly yelled out “Dammit!” and woke my fiance up in the process. Don’t get me wrong, I love Berry with every fiber of my being, but just hours before I looked at her blog I had taken the shot you see above! It was honest coincidence, and these things happen, but I felt so awkward having such a similar styled photo that I threw it into my recycle bin and playfully taunted Berry about it.  I knew I could always come up with something different.  She encouraged me though to keep the image, so after some consideration I dragged it back out of my recycle bin. I did REALLY like the picture.

So I edited it all up and made it extra pretty, and that is how Berry and I happened to have similar photos. Oops! Great minds think alike?

Tulipa

blog_tulipa

So I’m thrilled to tell you that one of my favorite stores is back in world & making new items.  OMGWTF Barbeque, has reopened her store This is a Fawn, and she’s recently collaborated with Tegan Serin of Floorplan and released some great new items at her intimate new location.  These best friend ribbon frames are an adorable purchase, and you can even pass one to your best friend in world to share. It reminds me of friendship bracelets, or those cute necklaces you could purchase to share with your favorite buddy.

Another project that Ms. Barbeque has recently started is Frock & Nest.  This is a “one stop destination” for all of your high quality shopping needs.  She has partnered with one of my favorite sites, SeraphimSL and will be bringing us all sorts of updates on awesome, quality finds in the Second Life community.  So far since joining the group I’ve found out about some great new items, that I otherwise would have been quite clueless about.  I encourage you to join. It’s currently free! (not sure if that will be changing in the future!)

Art Dummy has been making some great new items lately.  I love the color schemes of these vases matched with this vintage botanical poster.  I picked it up at 50 linden Friday this week.

 

Another adorable item you must check out are Plethora‘s new tablets! They come in a wide range of colors and designs, and come with two options. A rezzable version,  and one you can wear! The one that is wearable has a great typing animation to go along with it. Play the gatcha to win your favorite colors!

Windlight Setting: Soft Studio

blog_windlight

I was fiddling around today with windlight settings in Second Life and ended up with one I liked quite a bit, so I thought I’d share it with you all. It’s nothing fancy at all, in fact it’s quite simple.  It’s a nice windlight if you are wanting a softer look in the studio.  It made my skin look really pretty and I had to do very little editing in Photoshop. Especially those dreaded lines you get around your nose in some lighting situations.

Feel free to check out my windlights page for this newest windlight as well as my older ones from 2012. This actually inspired me today, and I think I will be releasing a whole new series soon.

Let’s Take A Selfie

blog_selfie

Strawberry Singh has issued a new challenge this week to tell us about your favorite pose makers in Second Life.  I have so many pose makers that I love, that quite honestly I’m afraid I’ll forget someone.  Instead of listing a long list of pose makers since there are countless that I use, I will encourage you to check out Berry’s awesome list, and comment on my blog post and tell me who your favorite pose makers are! Maybe I will discover someone new that I don’t know of yet!

Berry was kind enough to message me last night and ask me to be in her blog post.  We had a lot of fun.  I told her I was going to write something super embarrassing about her here, but I’ll spare her today! ;) In all honesty, it’s pretty difficult to say anything remotely mean about Berry, even if I am kidding around.  She’s pretty awesome, and I’m glad we’ve become friends.  If you would like to see all the awesome stuff she’s wearing in this pic you can check out her blog post for credits.

The selfie pose is from Exposeur and you can pick it up at Pose Fair 2014. I think it’s one of the cutest poses at the event! (and trust me. There are a LOT of cute poses.)

I will leave you with this.  Don’t let it get stuck in your head.

She Had Flowers In Her Hair

blog_flowersinherhair

I was on this super amazing blogging high the last few weeks, and I think I’m finally coming down off it. My motivation and inspiration is pretty minimal at the moment. I know it hits in waves though, so I’m just taking my time and letting the creativity seep back into my brain.

Tableau Vivant has totally been rocking the hairstyles lately. There have been so many releases with hair I absolutely love. This style, with the floral headband is just awesome.  I paired it with this awesome jumpsuit from Peqe. I know you can only see the upper portion of it in this image, but the entire outfit is adorable. My favorite part though was the plunging neckline and zipper on the front.

I need to get out of my blogging lull! It’ll pass!
