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!

American Hippy

Hi everybody! I hope all of my fellow Americans has a wonderful fourth of July.  I meant to do this post yesterday as I felt it had a very down home, simplistic, hippy look to it.  I’m not sure why it felt so American to me but it did.

I absolutely love the idea of stealing our man’s dress shirts.  That oversized, comfortable, loose fitting feeling of fabric resting on your skin.  They are so easy to pair with a comfortable pair of jeans and a simple cotton tank top.  You can find these fantastic mesh shirts at FaMESHed this month.  They are created by Ross Myhre of the store Kauna.  You can find them in a handful of colors!

Another item worth checking out at FaMESHed this month is the jewelry [HANDverk] has released.  I’m wearing one of the beautiful necklaces featured above!

TRUTH has released quite a few new beautiful hairstyles this week.  My favorite of the trio was Hailey.  It has a beautiful texture change headband that had a HUD to use for changing colors.  I love the casual hippy look to the hair and really enjoy that it’s one of Mr. Hawk’s mesh styles.

Only a few more days till the weekend! Think we’ll make it? :)

Bracken

FaMESHed is in full swing and filled to the brim with a multitude of quality items!  One of my all time favorite home shops DIGS has released a gorgeous mesh bench for the event.  The Bracken Bench comes in three colors, and is beautifully detailed as you can see above.  I’ve never seen such a uniquely beautiful bench in Second Life before.  The bench has a variety of female, male, and unisex sits as well as 8 couples animations.

Coldlogic is also featured at this months FaMESHed and has released some summery shorts and tops.  You can really never go wrong with coldlogic items.  I don’t even bother to demo any longer as I know they are always guaranteed to fit flawlessly.

Also take note! If you are looking for sims that allow rezzing on, Crossing Currents is a fantastic option.  I use this sim very frequently, and I know I mention it quite often on the blog, but many people may not realize you can rez your items on the sim!  Just make sure to clean up after yourself!

Make sure you sneak over to FaMESHed and see what all is up for grabs!

Cherry

Have you all heard about the new store by Miss Luna Jubilee?  It’s called LUJU and it’s already filled with some really beautiful cosmetics!  She recently released these gorgeous lip glosses with fun little stripes.  The cherry color was my favorite of the bunch!  You can pick them up in two different packs with a handful of color combinations in each.  LUJU also currently has eye shadows, and a group gift as well.  Check it out.

Speaking of group gifts… if you are in the Maitreya V.I.P. group (it’s free! oh yes! It is!!), you can stop by and pick up a beautiful free pair of mesh eyelashes right now.  I barely had to do any adjusting on these which may have been total luck, but I sure was excited.

That’s all I have for you today! Have a fab Monday!
