paper.doll @ FAIR

I’m sure most of you have heard about the newest Chic Management event, FAIR. FAIR will be a monthly themed event, this month’s theme being time. Each creation is about a certain time of the day. Read more about this unique event, and see a list of participating stores, on the CHIC Management website, here.

The Cotton Slip Set is paper.doll’s FAIR item this month. I love when an outfit is sweet and sexy at the same time. Not only that, but these make adorable tops. You can pair them with almost anything. My favorite way to wear it as a top would be to pair it with skinny jeans and some cute sandals, or flats.

I would like to make a couple of quick comments about the first picture in this post…well first of all, not sure how “quick” it will be. See? I’m already wasting time. First of all, I just now found out that Long Awkward Pose closed down for good while I was away. This makes me sad. In my opinion they are some of the best modeling poses on the grid. I’d like to wish Dove Swanson good luck in life and tell her what an honor it was blogging for her. I’m sure you’ll still see LAP on my credits now and then. A lot of times when I’m looking for a specific type of pose, that’s the folder I find it in…which leads me to the second thing I wanted to mention…

The poses in the first picture were meant to be stretching and yawning, just-woke-up types of poses. The more I look at it though, it looks like Poppy number one is singing loud and obnoxiously and Poppy number three is covering her ears. Poppy number two doesn’t seem to care.

Gotta love those sl facial emotes.

Poppy Returns from Outer Space

or as we sometimes call it, real life.

Pictured above: Maylee Oh’s new Babydoll Dresses from The Secret Store. Available in 7 different prints/textures for any mood or look.

I couldn’t believe when I looked at my blog a week or so ago and realized that I’ve been away nearly 1 year! My how time flies..and I’ve missed blogging but it seemed every time I logged into sl my graphics were going from bad to worse. I tried to take some pics and it wouldn’t even let me go to the ultra setting..i was heartbroken.

I tried to upgrade my Mac. It was a 10.5.8 and to be able to upgrade, i needed to first upgrade to a disc that apple no longer sells. I found some independent sellers on amazon with 50/50 reviews..a few of the bad reviews stating that they had lost total use of their computer when trying the 59 dollar upgrade and of course, this made me very apprehensive.

Like I have my entire life when I have a problem I called my Dad and asked if he could help me investigate and find a way to do it. The next day my amazing Dad brings me over a new iMac. I was so overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe it. He said it was my birthday gift and he knows because of my special situation at home that my computing time is my biggest “outlet”…

So now…finally…I have shadows! I was so excited I cried, lol. I know that’s so corny but…whateva.

I was going through my inventory and I have nearly a years worth of things that generous designers have sent me to blog for them..plus since it’s turned into a mesh world while I’ve been away you can imagine the shopping that needs to be done! But I’m really going to make an effort not to let my blog make me feel overwhelmed and deadliney…I want it to be enjoyable for me and for you! Nevertheless, I do have some catching up to do..going to model some of the review copies and new things and freebies while I play with the lighting and see what I can do..be patient with me..while I’ve been gone I’ve renewbed…it really happens!

One more thing I’d like to add..well there are many things I’d like to add but I’m trying not to make this any lengthier than it already is..If you’ve contacted me and  I haven’t responded please forgive me..i literally fell off the face of sl for a while so I’m sure many messages and other things were overlooked and/or lost. I’ll be checking daily now so if you’d like to get in touch with me please drop me a notecard in world or leave me a message here.

I’m in a pickle with my flickr..I can’t remember my screen name, password, the email acct. I used to open it..on my old computer it just stayed logged on all the time..not now of course so I cannot get into my flickr 😦 Not sure if I should make a new one or keep on with the pain in the ass process of trying to make some sort of “breakthrough” with it.

Okay, I’ll leave you on that note lol…Thank you for all of your support and encouraging messages while I was away..it really means a lot. ♥

There’s no need for an apology Miss Saeya…we all know how demanding rl can be…I know I get stressed out when I can’t make regular posts in my lil blog…I can’t imagine the stress of a successful designer…no apologies necessary!

However….we will take any gifts you’d like to give..you know…to make you feel better and all 😉

a different girl picked him up from the airport

wondering about the strange title of this post? I can’t take credit for it..I read it somewhere before…I can’t remember where, but it seems like it was on a blog..I googled it to try and give credit to whoever said it…couldn’t find anything though..
I just always remembered it..I liked it..I like the image/scenario it conjures up in my mind..and when I tried on Just You Jewels’ ensemble for the Chic Limited Birthday Event… I thought of the phrase at once…

goose on the loose

When I saw these overalls on a freebie blog I rushed right over to join the Sheep Door group and make them mine…they are adorable! There’s a freebie hat/hair and some really cool lucky board prizes as well.

Mother Goose’s has some really cute skins up on their lucky board right now. I was there for about 15 minutes or so and I won 4 skins..not to shabby 🙂 I love that there are so many boards and the letter changes after only 5 or 6 minutes…

(above pic) I’ve been wanting to blog this bag forever…I ❤ Chabinns so hard! If you’ve never been you should definitely go check it out…and don’t forget, Chabinns is the place with the Keroc (Croc) Gachas!!! (blogged here)
