Dreaming of You

I’ve been thinking a lot about dreams lately.  About how so often we become entangled in the day to day world of our careers and our commitment to meet others needs, that our own dreams get shifted to the wayside.

Dreaming of You

Then, someone comes along that reminds you what it’s like to be a dreamer. How beautiful, exciting and fulfilling the simplest thing can be when you shed the heaviness of the things that weigh you down and just focus on the beauty of the moment… even for just a little while.  Here’s to the dreamers.

Dreaming of You 2

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

I know, I know… I am a slacker. I just haven’t been feeling that sexy lately and I don’t want to fake it. Here’s my first 50 Shades of Sexy effort after a little break:

You Can’t Keep Me Down – I Got This!

So for the past 3 weeks or so I have been having the most HORRIBLE time trying to get a decent photograph in SL. I don’t know what happened but all of a sudden, windlights were borked (i.e. my skies looked like checkerboards), shadows were completely messed up and nothing was turning out right. So, I apologize for taking so long in between posts but I didn’t want to present any cool stuff if it looked like crap. Forgive?

I Got This | Second Life Fashion Blog

Today I’ve got quite a few cute things to show ya. First I want to make sure I mention the adorable sleeveless headphone t-shirt I’m wearing. It’s from Attic and is available for fi.friday tomorrow! They’ve got a bunch of different designs but this was my favorite because… you know… PINK! The headphones were a gift on Second Life Marketplace from Apogee Audio. Not bad for free huh? The gorgeously detailed Tiger Lily ring is from Maxi Gossamer for this round of Limited Bizarre starting on January 11th.

Now for a closer look. My oh-so-pretty skin today is the eagerly anticipated Ginerva release from Izzie’s. I know I go on and on about Izzie’s skins, but honestly there isn’t one that I don’t just love! I especially like the lips on this one, which I accentuated with raspberry lipstick.

Deets for the rest of my outift below. Enjoy!

Winter is Magical: Winter Fair and Silver Lining Hunt

The Winter Fair opens December 1st offering you a plethora (yeah look at that big 10 dollar word!) of winter delights. And the Silver Lining Hunt is in full swing with tons of festive goodies to be had!

Winter-Fair-and-Silver-Lining_006

We’ll start off with the cute little houndstooth coat from .:[NMD]:. which is one of their exclusive items at the Winter Fair. .:[NMD]:. proves that there is still a place in SL fashion for well made system and sculptie items. I simply adore this coat! It also comes with the white tights I’m wearing, and there are matching houndstooth boots that are sold separately.

Winter-Fair-and-Silver-Lining_001

The comfy pair of knit uggs from Intrepid are 5L when you find them in the Silver Lining Hunt. Stunned? IKR? 5L! They are more than worth it, they’re super cute and keep my toesies cozy!

Winter-Fair-and-Silver-Lining_004

No visit to a winter wonderland would be complete without a suitable pair of gloves and a nice warm hat. Mine are from Tentacio and are available exclusively at the upcoming round of XY Room which begins on December 1st. This will be the last round of XY Room until February, so be sure and stop by!

And last, but definitely not least, you are probably wondering where I got the cute poses you see in these photos! They’re an exclusive item for the Winter Fair from none other than WetCat. I have had a long and happy love affair with WetCat poses through many of my various incarnations. They’re always so well thought out and really infuse the avatar with the emotions you’re trying to convey.

So, there you have it, Shiloh on ice! Happy shopping this weekend!

Who Will Tell My Fairy Tale?

“Every man’s life is a fairy tale written by God’s fingers. ” Hans Christian Andersen I love that quote. To me that means that inside each of us is a story, if we are just brave enough to let it be told. I’m trying to work up the courage to tell my tale, the beautiful and the sordid. It’s a scary thought… to lay one’s soul bare for all to see.  I’m hoping to sign up for a writers retreat this Winter and reach inside the dark crevices of my mind and extract those memories and string them all together. I’ll let ya know how that works out.

So, back to fashion. How cute is this hair from D!va? I am really in love with it. I just keep thinking of all the fun I can have by adding different hair ornaments to it! The shirt/dress is a sweet little thing from Anymore Flowery mesh shirt/dress for XY Room. In the photo above I paired it with the Giselle Mesh Cardigan from J.H. Couture so you can see how it will easily migrate from season to season. Now, about this skin from AUX. I saw a preview photo of it on Plurk and could hardly wait to get inworld to grab it up! The skin and hair are currently available at October’s Collabor88! Hurry and get them before they’re gone!

Gacha! This Ain’t Disney Land…

I meant to post this yesterday, but, to be honest, I was just too darn tired! However, I hope you will find this cute little outfit was worth the wait!

I have caught the Gatcha! fever. Maybe not to the extent of some of my friends and peers, but I’ll admit, I’m amused! I decided to mix up a few pieces from the Arcade Gatcha event that is happening RIGHT NOW with a few Gatcha prizes from one of my favorite shops.

While trying to find a place to take my photo, I stumbled across a brand new fully interactive roleplay sim that opens on Monday! It’s called the Midtown West District and I think it’s going to bring roleplay to a whole new level in SL. So if you are into urban/city roleplay you should definitely check it out!

Gatcha-This-Ain't-Disney-Land

The Maxi Gossamer Candy Love Hearts necklace has to be one of my favorite pieces from The Arcade. I love that Maxi puts so much thought and effort into each little detail on her jewelry, and this is no exception. The Gatcha Machine has 10 different colors, with the black one being the most rare.

MG - Necklace - Candy Love Hearts

I’m also wearing the super cute mouse ears from AUX. Their machine has 12 variations of normal ears, and 4 variations of the “special” “rare” sparkly ears which I MUST HAVE! *coughs* Ahem… sorry for my loss of composure there.

Last but certainly not least, I’m wearing a few super cute items from the Gatcha Machine at Sway’s shop. The kitty cat tank top and the wooden bangles are two prizes I will treasure! I cannot say enough good things about this place. Everything is so well done, and simply adorable. I should also mention that while Sway Dench is an amazing creator, she is also a SUPERB blogger! You can check out her blog here!

Here is Sway’s contribution to The Arcade event. I am seriously going to go broke trying to get each and every piggy bank!!

The Arcade starts today and goes through October 15th!
