For The Alliance

The Warcraft movie is almost here, and I as a WoW player am beyond excited. So much so that I managed to find a lovely “Jaina Proudmoore” to accompany me on this post.

For The Alliance

First off, FOR THE ALLIANCE. Alright now that I have that out of my system let’s get to the real deal. We ❤ RP is getting ready to start it’s June round and the previews I’ve seen are absolutely stellar. It’s an event that has grown near and dear to my heart thanks to the lovely Portia. I had never attended nor paid attention to it, for that I’m sorry We <3, but now I get very excited each time a new one comes around. I’ve ventured in the world of RP recently so seeing all of the unique items and figuring out what and if I can use something in my roleplay scenarios is so much fun. Continue reading

May The Twenty-Fourth Awakens: BIRTHDAY EDITION

Episode 1: The Portia Awakens….

Yep, that’s right. Today is my birthday and, wonder of wonders, I was able to SLEEP IN! In spite of the ridiculous heat, high pollen count, and insomnia that’s been kicking my ass all week, SLEEP HAPPENED!

When the question of what I would like to do today arose, it may surprise some of you to hear that my first answer was “blog the Star Wars picture we took on the fourth!” Maybe it doesn’t surprise everyone, though. 😉 Lucky and I are huge fans of the genre and, even as I’m writing this post, our music stream is playing some of the greatest movie music ever written. ❤ Continue reading

The Silver Screen Starlet

If your quiz results were mostly F’s, you may want to look at this:

Mostly F’s – The Silver Screen Starlet

There was a time, not too long ago, when men wore fedoras and trenchcoats. Women wore jewels and heels and skirts. Things were made with better materials, lasted longer, and somehow also cost less. You are a throwback to those times.

Your clothes are feminine without being girly. You ooze sensuality without being overtly sexy. You have truly excellent underwear.

Blogger Challenge: What’s Your Beauty Base Zero? (Part One ~ Stylin’ Ain’t Easy)

Blogging isn’t easy.

I’m not writing this post to complain, far from it, but I would like to highlight the amount of work stylists undertake when putting an outfit together. Blogging said outfits is another challenge (but gosh, I love it) because the purpose is to highlight clothing in a specific, and often individual, fashion. The blog posts we love best seem effortless and perfect; it looks like a snapshot right out of someone’s second life. In truth, I’m certain that it’s the result of hours of work from beginning to end and I appreciate this process SO much. Behind every blogger, you’ll likely find a thorough and thoughtful individual who is just in love with SL fashion and wants to share this fascination with the world. Like me. 🙂

So this is the first installment of what I’m calling my “Stylin’ Ain’t Easy” tribute to SL blogging. It’s not definitive but it is a peek at how I operate. The first step for me is what I have named my BB-0 (Beauty Base Zero); it’s a term I’ve pillaged from book two of The Hunger Games trilogy because the concept was dead on. It’s where you start, imagining your nails are perfect, your hair is tied back and you’re staring into a mirror, or your closet, wondering what the heck you’re going to wear today. Continue reading

A Romp in the Park

Happy Weekend, everyone!

I have to say, I’ve been fantasizing about this trip to the park ever since coldLogic released its new line of mesh ROMPERS but between this, that, and the other thing, it’s taken me an unheard-of EIGHT DAYS to get this post together. What the heck, right?

Anyway, like every coldLogic release since the beginning of time (or, you know, this year), these rompers are flipping CUTE, stylish, and perfectly easy to wear. Idina, compulsive fatpacker that she is, and I (recently converted quantum pack queen) spent quite a bit of time co-ordinating outfits for the next few shots to give you an idea of the different styles available at coldLogic right this very minute. We hope you like them!

Addressing the Dresses (CHIC², part three!)

It’s no secret that I love all things yellow/white/bright/happy so you must be able to imagine how thrilled I was to receive these gorgeously playful minidresses! Koketka is a new store to me HOWEVER wandering into the mainshop felt like nothing so much as finding another part of my closet lost to me until now. The dress is mini, meshy, and super cute! I can’t wait to just dive right in here later this month for a full examination of Juli’s wonderful designs. Maxi Gossamer has delivered yet -another- beautiful offering: the Lost Eden Sun Pendant. Wear it short, wear it long, but make sure you WEAR it this summer! Like the rest of her designs, this pendant is mesh and so pretty you’ll never want to take it off. ❤

I’m still wearing, and still loving, the new Wasabi Pills Anais 2 hair, my stunning IKON Horizon eyes, and this Pekka lip balm I can’t seem to get enough of. It’s such a happy combination on a truly exciting day.

It’s almost time for CHIC² to open it’s doors – are YOU ready for the party?

Hey, look! Another dress and (gasp!) it’s white! Continue reading

A Foggy Day (CHIC², part 2)

Bonjour!  CHIC² opens TODAY at 4SLT! Magnifique!

This is just one of the gorgeous display booths at CHIC² – I’m still amazed by the bazillion-and-four designers’ creativity and imagination. The clothes are amazing, of course, and the CHIC furniture and makeup and skin and hair and jewelry and/and/and/etc. are just staggeringly good. I’ll say, though, that I’ve never been to an event where I just wanted to hop into every booth and snap a few pictures for my personal collection. We can thank (fluke) for this wicked little bistro set, all mesh, and less than twenty prims! I’m wearing one of the coffee cups (copy/mod, whee!) and sporting one of STATUS‘ great new ‘Coffee and Cigs’ poses, coffee and cigs included. The dress. Sigh. Geometry. Just wait till you see it in-world. The back detail (not shown, sadly) will blow your socks off. So make sure you’re wearing socks. Continue reading

Le Freak, C’est CHIC!

Hey everyone!

I am really, REALLY, really-super-plus-mega-ULTRA psyched to be sharing some of my CHIC² birthday event preview experiences with you tonight! EEE! If it isn’t obvious already, this is my first blogger invitation ANYWHERE and I certainly hope it isn’t this last. Talk about fun!

I hope to see ALL of you tomorrow night, though, when the sim is open and we can all band together to wish CHIC a very happy early birthday.

Portia’s Sunshiney Yellow Taxi to CHIC²  (Event opens 4pm, Sunday June 3rd)

So this is me, trying to look like I’m striking the proper balance between cool(ish) fashion blogger and rampant fangirl. This top (T Junction!) says ‘Tres Chic’ on the front because we’re all very, very CHIC this week. Obviously. 😀 I’m always glad to see a new release from CheLLe as well since it means I have a few more options when I’m looking for eyeshadow and a less-likely chance of boring YOU with the same face/lips/eyes over and over again. As I’m always looking for lipstick/gloss/balm/etc that works with my face, I was all about Pekka’s offering – HYDRA lip balm, in this case. Pretty, pretty! Continue reading

SecondLife Heroes

Hahaha, well.

I haven’t made it through everything I wanted to finish today but I’m really pleased to share this little project with you instead. My brother Lucky (whom you need to know if you don’t already) and I have been talking about rocking our superhero costumes together for about a week but schedules being what they are, tonight was the first night we were both free.

Check it out!

(but ignore the typo)
