These Are a Few of My Favourite Things…

Ooooh hasn’t the SL Fashion Blogosphere been full of drama the last couple of weeks? At first I thought some of it was interesting and often amusing (I’ve even commented on portions of it), but now I’m a bit bored. I don’t know about you, but my RL has enough drama of it’s own without introducing it into my virtual existence. I want my SLife to be about kittens and fluffy things… can we soon return to the days when we emptied out our handbags and photographed the contents to show each other (now, wasn’t that fun girls and boys?).

There was a little grumpiness and talk of feeling uninspired amongst my blogging peers recently and I wondered if the negativity was dragging everyone down. I’m glad to see us going back to what I think we do best… finding and photographing and telling our readers about our favourite things. That’s certainly what I’m going to concentrate on and I’ve resolved to not read any posts that even sniff at drama. Incidently, this probably means that this post will contain typo’s as technically I cannot read it, as it talks about drama.

Anyway, moving on; in an attempt to lighten the mood and spread some love, the items I’ve featured in this post today are those things (old and new) in my virtual wardrobe that I adore, find myself reaching for all the time and (unlike drama) never tire of. I hope you like them too <3.

Please note that I won’t be permitting any comments about drama on this post. I’d love to hear from you though if you like my favourite things and please feel free to comment in general on bunnies, flowers, poetry and such. If anyone really does feel the need to ‘have a go’, they could always Plurkerise me. If they’re shy, I believe it can be done in secret with chums, but I’m hoping that I will be considered for a public slagging off. That way more traffic will be driven to my blog, my visitor numbers will increase, and my life will feel complete ;).

Tired (and a little bit sad)…

Well I’ve returned to England and my feet haven’t touched the ground since I arrived. Thankfully I don’t suffer from jetlag, but with RL keeping me so busy, I am properly shattered and it’s been a real struggle to find the time for SL playtime. Worse still, Sugar Daddy had to stay in California and won’t be joining me for a couple of weeks so there is much sadness, longing telephone calls, and my creativity (which is intrinsically linked to my psyche) is somewhat stumped. Anyway, as I’m a Brit and really rather good at keeping calm and carrying on, I have used my most recent life experiences as inspiration for this post… I hope you like it xxx.

I am extraordinarily fussy when it comes to Second Life skins. I trawl the grid looking for them and thus far, I’ve only found two that I really feel suit Dolly’s face shape… Redgrave and Curio.  This new skin from Curio is Lovely by name and most definitely lovely by nature! It has a wonderful tragic look which you’ll either love or hate. Here it is shown in Petal FREX Light Firehouse 2 and I was lucky enough to receive it as a free group gift. However, you can pick it up at the Curio main store along with a great range of makeup options and skin colour tones. Click here to visit the Curio main store.
