The Swing – A Story by Elle

Swing 3

The woman sat there quietly in the park, her hands gripped tightly about the rope of the swing, as her thoughts flooded back to her childhood in Tulsa.   “Swing me higher, Daddy,” she heard in her thoughts.  “I want to touch the moon just like those astronauts did!”  Her father would laugh and push the swing higher and higher. In the background, the familiar voice of her mother would chime “Be careful!  She might jump out of the Swing!”  Mother knew her too well – her risky daredevil ways that miraculously never resulted in any major injuries!

Nylon Outfitters High Def Skins & Luxuria Appliers

Nylon Outfitters High Def Skin

First off, let me say it is my personal opinion that one cannot do a skin critique in a similar manner to say a Glam Affair or Pink Fuel for the skins released by Nylon Pinkney.  Why is that you might ask? Well, in my mind Nylon Outfitters falls into a niche market, similar in some ways to the Skinnery, but even more so.  “High Def is the latest release in skins from Nylon Pinkney, and the first I think in a long while too.  I feel as though the wearer of this skin would lean more on the … Read more at the source.

My Thoughts – Glam Affair Rose

Glam Affair Rose

 

No one can deny the beauty of Glam Affair skins and the talent of the creator.  Recently, Aida Ewing of Glam Affair released “Rose” and I have to admit, this is my favorite skin from her in a long while.  At the moment, this brand is really the powerhouse skin brand on the grid.  No can argue that her work is impeccable, that she is always on the forefront when it comes to trends in mesh body parts. She is a smart business woman and has done a wonderful job of keeping her brand on the mind’s residents with … Read more at the source.

Kooqla, Truth and Losthaven

I said that to someone earlier today – a good friend of mine that has made some of the best stuff on the SL market for years now.  Even when I was on my SL break, I would log in every couple of weeks just to grab this creators new releases – that’s how much of a fan I am of his, personally and professionally <3.

Any who enough of this fangirling,  let’s talk about all the new releases in my post today.  Truth and Kooqla both had marvelous new releases this week:  “Tom” the unisex hairdo from Truth and “Summer … Read more at the source.

French Macarons Are Gluten Free

French Macarons Are Gluten Free 1

Did you know French Macrons are gluten-free??? I didn’t and I was so happy to find out this so important piece of dietary information.  You see, I love Macrons…yes MACARONS which is the French spelling of the same delicious treat we often refer to in the US as Macaroons.  Well, there is a bit of a difference though:  Both of these edible delights start with egg whites and sugar but that is where the commonalities end.   American Macaroons use coconut as a primary ingredient, whereas French Macarons use Almonds with a layer of Buttercreme between the layers.  Either way … Read more at the source.

Oh Boy, has Second Life changed since 2007!  Gone are the days of trolling about shopping sims looking for what is new and fabulous and making new friends along the way.  Shopping in SL now is pretty much limited to the various monthly, quarterly and special events filled with tiny booths and silent, zombie like avatars staring off into space.  Does anyone out there remember places such as Starlust where people would not only shop but hang out and chat?  Even my beloved Tableau that used to be filled with all sorts of chatty avatars is a ghost land.  *Sigh* … Read more at the source.

Ohmai Newreem 071314

I am finally back from a long week in Vancouver for our annual sales meeting and I still recovering, LOL.  The hotel was fabulous, the food was great, but I had to be “on point” 18 hours a day it seemed and it was exhausting. So after really doing next to nothing in SL and RL on Saturday (and with no desire to deal with all one has to deal with involving SL events), I finally got around to checking out the Hair Fair on Sunday.  My second stop was Ohmai and I absolutely fell in love with all the … Read more at the source.
