The Dress Shirt

I was utterly helpless.

I mean truly. What woman can resist a man in a crisp white dress shirt? Add the tie…the vest…the nice pants and well… you see where I’m going with this.

It certainly didn’t take long till he was leading me up his front steps and down the dimly lit hallway of his cozy little place.  A careless trail of apparel and unmentionables littering the old wood flooring as I stumbled out of my ruby heels and into the arms of perfection.

So maybe the rest of the night was a bit of a blur, with countless secrets never to be told.  I can say though… that dress shirt made for the perfect escape….and a memorable parting gift.

Marketplace

 

I was quite honored to be given the opportunity to participate in the newest round of banners on Second Life’s Marketplace.  This round features a couple photos focused around a circus and fair theme!  Thank you so much Linden Lab for giving me such a wonderful opportunity and allowing me to participate in something so fantastic.  The Second Life’s Marketplace is an absolutely wonderful tool that I encourage you all to use often.  It’s a great way to find new stores, shop in the convenience of your own “home”, and find treasures you never knew existed.

I know many people often times are curious about how they can be involved in bigger projects like this in the Second Life Community.  The best advice I can offer it to be consistent, work hard to stay involved within the community, and add your photographs and blog entries to feeds, flickr, plurk, etc… The more active you are through social networking, the more likely you will find these opportunities.

If you are looking for ways to participate and be more involved, I encourage you to check out the Official Second Life Flickr Page.  Here you can post your photographs & gain more exposure in the Second Life Community, as well as gain an opportunity to be Second Life’s picture of the Day.

Thanks again Linden Lab.  It’s always a pleasure. <3

That’s What Friends Are For

I often times have a really bad habit of forgetting to have fun in a world that is filled with endless opportunities for it.  I get caught up in the “work” side of Second Life, and fail to remember that sometimes a little fun and goofing off is needed.

One of my very best friends, Miss Paige Patrucci is entirely the opposite.  She is always having fun in Second Life.  She’s never afraid to do something silly, and her inventory is filled with an endless array of fun items to goof off with.  She’s notorious for wandering around to various sims and causing a comic scene, and she’s someone who does an incredible job of sometimes saying “HARLOW. WE NEED TO GO HAVE FUN.”

That’s what she did the other day when I was no doubt knee deep in Photoshop, or working on some other little project…completely oblivious to the thought of having a silly moment.  She pulled me away, threw a goofy hat my way, told me to throw on the silly sock puppets and run around the grid with her.

In a brief few minutes, I ended up laughing harder than I’d laughed in weeks!  It was much needed.  I am forever grateful to have Paige in my life, not only as a trustworthy friend, but someone who isn’t afraid to pull me away from the serious parts of my life sometimes… because let’s be honest.  We all need to have more fun in life.  Paige knows just how to do that!

Someone Call Security!

So… life’s been a little bit stressful lately.  I’ve been struggling with some big upcoming changes and uncertainties and I just needed a night out. You know. One of THOSE nights.  I called up my two favorite guys on the grid, Mr. Arkansas Sorbet & Mr. Remy Stringfellow and essentially begged for them to take me out.  There was some hesitancy due to prior nights out in the past (apparently I have QUITE the drinking record!), but after a little bit of grumbling they agreed.

The night started off GREAT, as they always tend to do.  We bar hopped on the grid, joining up with friends for drinks and well…maybe a few shots too.  There was dancing, and laughter, and loads of fun, and just when the party was really getting started, the boys became distracted by the pretty blonde bartender.  I for one, was NOT going to be shown up on MY night of fun.  The redhead in me soon started to show!  A few more shots and I was chatting it up with a few of the local handsome patrons.  Liquid courage, and the encouragement of a group of cute boys soon enough had me up on the bar in my crocodile pumps dancing like I owned the place.

My plan worked!  It just may not have worked entirely how I wanted it to.  Over the loud thumping speakers I heard a shrill voice yell “Someone Call Security!”

That sure got the attention of Mr. Sorbet and Mr. Stringfellow cause soon enough they were racing over and yanking me down off the bar.  Apparently, my stubborn ginger side really seems to show when the vodka settles in, as they had to drag me out kicking and squealing.

Needless to say, it’s going to take a lot of convincing for my boys to take me out anytime again soon. Oopsie!

The Hideaway

I have been a badly behaving blogger this week.  Horrible really.  Every time I’ve gone to do it I’ve either been sidetracked or simply too lazy. (Sometimes you just need a mini vacation eh?)  I have a few blog posts in the making though, including one about an incredible grand hall from MESHWORX, and also my next Pay It Forward “victim”.  Also I will sort through (and struggle to decide) on the top three entries for the silly Golden Peen Contest.  Voting will occur sometime later this weekend as well I believe! The time and effort that has gone into that contest is just awesome! I’ve enjoyed watching everyone laugh over the photos/gifs/blog entries that people have created!  Those will be coming up probably this weekend, but today I’m going to tell you about the little hideaway I’ve created for myself.

I think it’s so important in Second Life to have a space to call your own.  Something that you have full control over to do as you please with, and a place you can escape to for a moment of solitude or privacy.  I just recently found a cheap plot of land, and created my own little oasis four thousand meters in the sky.  I’ve thrown on one of my favorite radio stations at my home, and it’s a perfect place to relax, unwind, and hang out at when i’m blogging, working in photoshop, etc…

A few items in my hideaway that I think are worth pointing out… My bed, couch, and rug are all from the store DIGS.  This store is absolutely amazing.  The furniture is perfect, stylish, and the poses/options for singles, friends, and lovers are flawless.  Another item I’d like to mention is the dom chair from Dutchie.  She has two version of this chair, male and female.  I picked up the male dom chair and umm… without going into a lot of private detail, let’s just say the chair has a lot of fun poses.  *grins innocently*

For information on where to find all the items in the photos above I’ve listed them below in my credits.

I have a few other items I wanted to show y’all today!  Wasabi Pills released a new mesh hair, and it’s probably my favorite release from them to date!  It’s called Lola and I thought it was the perfect hair to lounge around my hideaway in.  The hair comes with a color change HUD that allows you to play with a handful of color and pattern options for the bandanna as well as the hair ties.

Toki-Doki has released their adorable tied knot shirts in some fantastic solid colors.  Please ignore the fact that my shoulders are going through the top of the shirt in the photo.  I edited this photo at almost two in the morning last night, and that was completely my mistake.  These shirts aren’t mesh, and I just wasn’t paying attention with the pose I was using.  I then was just honestly too lazy to re-edit/re-take the photo. (See I told you’ve been horribly lazy lately!).  The shirt is near perfect in every way.  You can find it in eight beautiful solid colors.

Lastly, I wanted to mention my new favorite jeans!  JANE released her new sweet n low jeans, and I loved them so much that I bought the fat pack. (which was a very reasonable price btw!)  The jeans are loose fitting, hang perfectly off your hips, and have a lot of lovely detailing.  Each color comes with two cuff options as well.

I hope you all have a great start to your Memorial Day weekend! <3
