Changing To Wordpress

Blogger recently gave notice that they will be blocking blogs with sexually explicit content starting on March 23rd. Although neither of my blogs have ever really been sexually explicit, I believe that this is Google’s way of gradually phasing out Blogger. I also don’t believe in unnecessary censorship and yes, I do believe this is unnecessary.

So I’m making the switch to WordPress. If you have my blog in your blogrolls [thank you, btw, if you do!], I would appreciate if you would update it to my new WordPress address. I’ll also be contacting the owners of the feeds that I’m on to change my blog URL, so if you normally read me through a feed, you’ll be able to see my posts the same as usual pretty soon.

I’m not terribly familiar with WordPress yet, so please forgive me if things here seem disjointed and crazy for a little bit while I get used to my new blogging home. Thank you! ♥

Multicolored Moods of Love

I've always loved butterflies. Not just because they're pretty, but because they're a symbol of transformation. We all change, in one way or another. I'm not the same person I was 5 years ago. We change and if we're lucky, we change into better people, just like caterpillars change into beautiful butterflies.

Style - Multicolored Moods of Love

I fell in love with the Papillon set by GizzA that is out at Shiny Shabby right now. It includes the necklace and the eye accessory. I don't know how often I'll need butterflies for my eye so I will probably use these again somewhere in my hair.

Happy shopping, butterflies!

Bring It One More Time

I used to be really against templates. I watched my creator friends learn Blender and Maya and they'd curse and bang their heads against the walls and all to make first original sculpts, then original mesh. But over time, these same people have let me know that working with a template to texture it can be just as much work as it is to create it in the first place, and many of them hate texturing with a passion. Given the choice, I will still go towards the original mesh items first, but now I'm pretty happy to get things just because they're cute. :)

Style - Bring It One More Time

Ducknipple has a sub-brand called SLX Outfits, and that's pretty cool because you can get entire outfits for fairly cheap! Are they templates? I'm pretty sure! But it's all super darling and sometimes you find great pieces in the outfits. I liked the Hipster outfit immediately because of the jeans. Jeans in SL almost NEVER are long enough for me. I don't really care for skinny jeans [in either life] and I prefer a good boot cut or bell bottom jean that just about hits the ground. These jeans are awesome! The outfit includes the jeans, sweater [color change with a HUD], belly chain, and necklace that I'm wearing in this pic, plus a pair of sandals and a slim headband that didn't make it to the picture.

My sister has us doing inventory cleaning boot camp before The Arcade [I had to delete 6 things just to get this outfit!], so I'm back to the grindstone! Happy shopping!

Too Dressy For Coffee

When I was younger, there was this guy who worked at our local Starbucks and he was SO CUTE. I'd find myself going in there when he was working and I was just way too dressy to get a simple coffee. I guess it worked though. I scored more free coffee than I can say!

Style - Too Dressy For Coffee

I really like the Leather Shorts and Vest set from United Colors that is out at The Liaison Collaborative this month! At first I thought that it had gold studs, but when you look closely, it's actually little gold knots. That actually works better for me because I'm not really into studded items. The shorts and vest are separate, so you could wear the leather shorts with another top, or the vest with some jeans. Versatile!

All this thinking about coffee has me craving some, so I'm off. Happy shopping!

You Belong Somewhere You Feel Free

We have a little park set up across the street from our house now and I've been having way more fun being outside rather than inside the house these days. I am a total sunshine and warm weather type of girl!

Style - You Belong Somewhere You Feel Free

Livalle will be participating in 21Shoe this month and I'm wearing one of the two pairs of shoes you'll be able to buy, the Eliza cork platform wedges. I love a good wedge in the spring and these are so bright and pretty. Remember that 21Shoe is a 24 hour event that is only on the 21st of the month so you'll have to be quick like a bunny if you want to get these pretty shoes!

Truth released some new hair today and I'm just nuts about the new Avena hair! It's all loose and twirly and a little bit messy. It's kind of how I feel in the spring!

Happy shopping!

Oh But She Burns

I seem to get my inspiration for photos from music lately. I've been listening to "Cherry Wine" by Hozier on repeat lately and somehow came up with this photo using some items from The Liaison Collaborative!

Style - Oh But She Burns

I really like the Mabelle set from Eudora 3D for TLC this round. It's the perfect mix of leather and lace [the theme of this round!] and it manages to be both sexy and sweet at the same time.

Breno made this great Ballet Studio for TLC, but don't let the name fool you into thinking you can only use it for ballet. It would work as a nice one room home or a small store, too! It's lovely, open, and I know I'll get quite a bit of use out of it.

Oh, btw, I'm linking the song that I'm listening to at the end of this post, if you want to check Hozier out beyond the "Take Me To Church" song! Happy shopping and happy listening!

It's Never Black Or White

The Liaison Collaborative opened today and it's a Leather and Lace round! And oh my GOSH. There are SO many pretties, I hardly knew where to start! But I figured I'd be a little bit naughty today, in honor of the Valentine's weekend.

Style - It's Never Black or White -1

Style - It's Never Black or White -2

I love when people make things for events that just work so well together. Enfant Terrible created the Rosalies corset and flower headpiece and ugh, they are just too gorgeous! I wasn't sure what I was going to wear with the corset, but luckily, Baiastice made the Pigalle lace lingerie set that fits with the corset fabulously! The lingerie is mesh but works extremely well with the Maitreya mesh body. And the Miss Steel heels from Rebel Hope just work great with everything.

Tarte made a Corset Chair for TLC and although it has some great poses in it, for these photos I chose to use a couple of poses from the Pure Heat set by Ma Vie that you can also find at TLC. And even the room I'm in, the Room Despair is at TLC! The room is part of a collab between Bauhaus Movement and Zerkalo.

Happy shopping!
