So today I took the opportunity to go and check out the new Cupcake sim. It’s been down for renovations for quite a while now, and many of us have been anticipating the new look and design of it. Let me tell you…the wait was well worth it. The new sim is outstanding.
I felt like I had teleported into a whole new world. Cobblestone paths leading me on my adventure, I stumbled upon fantastic architecture, little courtyards with places to sit, adorable cafes, and an abundance of some of my favorite stores. There were also a few new stores that I had not heard of that caught my eye.
This sim is by far my new favorite place to venture to. The detail put into it was absolutely perfect. You feel as if you are on a vacation to your favorite old city. A town filled with character and delight around every corner. Make sure to stop by the Cupcake sim and check it out. I do believe they are still under construction as it looked like there was room for expansion, (and the title up on the screen said that they were too! hehe…) but it’s completely worth stumbling around and checking out all there is to offer so far.
I. Seriously. Cannot. Get. Enough. Of. Olive. Juice. Poses.
There. I said it. Seriously!! Have you seen the new set that IsabellaGrace Baroque has released at her lovely store Olive Juice? They are entitled Sexy Sexin’ (with a box), which made me giggle profusely. This was my favorite of the poses. It’s edgy and sexy, and full of AWESOME.
Speaking of awesome, I’m really digging this top from BOUNCE. It’s being released today for Project Themeory, and it’s so business chic. It comes with a little flower brooch, which is a darling little add-on. The front part with the laced texture is just slightly see through which adds an extra edge of sexy to it. I paired it with some Armidi slacks that i’ve had for ages and I was one happy girl.
What also makes me a tremendously happy girl is my weekly dose of Truth Hair. This release is the cutest! My only “qualm” about it was that the ribbon didn’t come in a white or black color, but the gray seemed to be a happy medium and I thought it was a nice touch for this outfit. Truth does a spectacular job of making hair that can be dressed up or dressed down. I feel as if once again I could wear this hair with a formal gown or a pair of jeans and a tank top.
Well that’s my daily dose of fashion for the day. I hope you are all having a FANTASTIC weekend! It’s a three day weekend here in the states for Memorial Day. A big thank you for all of the men and women here in the states who have served or are serving now for our country. Those who have sacrificed their lives to keep up safe and free. I am forever grateful.

Well. It’s official. I have a new skin obsession. The store is called Chain and Vine. The lovely Oh Ohna recently directed me to it during one of our plurk conversations, and the moment I threw on a demo I was hooked. Everything about this skin is beautiful, and I hope you think so too because you are probably going to be seeing it quite a bit!
I wandered around Chain and Vine quite a bit and they had so many other items to offer as well including some great fantasy apparel as well as some more really gorgeous skins. I am really surprised I hadn’t heard of this awesome store before (then again I’m notorious for not knowing about these great finds until late in the game), but now that I know about Chain and Vine I will be frequenting the place quite a bit!
Sorry this post is short and sweet today! I’m being climbed all over by children at work. (I’m a nanny for all of you who didn’t know that!) Oh the insanity!

“Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” – Aristotle
One of the most beautiful aspects of Second Life is the opportunity to meet really wonderful people all over the world. I have done just that. I’ve met people who span the globe, and if given the opportunity would be able to have coffee in some little cafe with some really fantastic friends, at so many different locations around the world.
Not only here in my Second Life have I met my real life love in April of 2009 (Mr. Arkansas Sorbet), but I’ve also had the opportunity to meet my very best friend as well. Someone who makes me a better human being in nearly all aspects of my life. That person is Mr. Remy Stringfellow. Remy is supportive, filled with kindness, and is the type of person who offers a friendship you spend your whole life searching for. Someone who is honest, hard working, and dedicates his time and energy into making a friendship what it’s really supposed to be about. I am absurdly lucky to have a friendship like his in my life. Quite honestly, I’m very lucky to have all kinds of friendships that I have here in my Second Life.
My favorite aspect of the Second Life Community is the growth I’ve received from it. I’ve learned so much about myself…and not all of it positive. I’ve learned traits about myself that I need to change and work on, and I’ve also learned the things that make me tick. The aspects of my personality that lead to my passions, and the things I truly love. My favorite aspect of all though, are the relationships I’ve made here, and I am forever grateful for all of them, especially the relationship with my very best friend. People say Second Life is just a game, but for many of us it’s not. It’s a community, and quite often a way of life. For me, it is just an extension of my real life. A part of who I have become.
Among all of the wonderful things about Remy, he’s supportive enough to go on a shopping trip and then pose for a photograph for me. His patience is quite astounding because I take forever at both of these tasks….and Im sure that guitar was starting to get a bit heavy. Please feel free to check out below where a few of the items are from that he’s showcasing in the pho.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn
I was so flattered when I posted this photo on my plurk yesterday and my dear friend Chance Raynier commented and said I looked like Audrey Hepburn! That is the ultimate compliment. Audrey Hepburn with her style and grace, she was quite the fashion icon.
You know, I didn’t wake up this morning feeling like a Hollywood star but I did wake up feeling pretty decent. I probably have last night to thank for that. Last night at The Pixel Bean we had a mellow evening around the campfire. Here comes a shameless plug, but if you are looking for a really great place to chill and unwind and meet really amazing people The Pixel Bean is certainly the place to do it. It blows my mind what this place has turned into. It’s my pride and joy. I really am so proud of what it has become. Some of the nicest, most fun, crazy, amazing people can be found at our little coffeehouse, and the sim (even though still unfinished) has some great places to explore. Bowie Zeplin did a really fantastic recap on her blog about last night. It’s worth checking out!
Anyway, enough of my rambling and onto what you probably came here to read about! What I’m wearing! Yesterday I was out on the hunt with my best friend trying to find him some new hairstyles. We’ve failed time and time again to find him anything that’s better than what he has right now, but each time we go out shopping I always end up finding something for myself! So at least there is some kind of win that comes out of our shopping trips right? We were over at Anaphora when across the room I saw a really great hairstyle and hat that caught my attention.
I. Love. This. Hat. I feel a little bit snobby in it, but I think it’s absolutely fantastic and fashion filled. I didn’t have to do any adjusting to it either which really made me happy. I paired it with a really sexy summer tank from JLZ Designs that I thought went really well with it, and I quickly headed out the door for a trip to the beach!
