Pididdle is back baby!

So I actually meant to blog this last night but the forces were against me and I ended up crashing umpteen times whilst attempting to take the photos but, Brutus Martinek of Pididdle was soooo worth the perseverance and persever I did, even if I am a little late to the party!

As I'm sure you have all heard by now Pididdle has reopened and is bigger and better than ever.  There is a new location on the Existence Sim, new clothes annnd a fabulous little in store hunt with some free teaser items.  Below is a just a small selection of the new Beirut jeans and vests available with a nice little smattering of the Obsession tanks for your viewing pleasure.  The pants, tank and necklace on the left are just a taste of what you can snag in the in store hunt if you're quick!

Pididdle is open for business go.. don't walk... run and snap up the awesomeness while you can!

And there's a part of you
that's just a little scared of her
axis turns the world
and you need a jet to get to her
she's great and she knows
how to wear the pants
and the rest of your clothes...

Every now and again I like to slip outta my oh so comfy jeans and surprise people.  See ma... I can look like a lady, somtimes...

Home sweet home

There must be something in the water at the moment because everyone has the decorating bug and in my case, I'm sure my neighbours are thrilled.  You see, up until this point, I've been known as the girl who changes her house every few weeks and decorates it with nothing but a pose stand!  This all changed though upon receiving the note card from LISP that their new Beatrice furniture pack was available, just one look and I knew had to have it!  I love home furnishings that have a country-esq feel to them so after that, everything fell very easily into place and I'm kinda in love with the final result.

So long live the car crash hearts

So long live the car crash hearts
Cry on the couch
All the poets come to life
Fix me in 45...

I love me some new jackets, so I'm surprised not everyone on grid heard my delightful squeals when I stumbled across this utterly gorgeous new aviator jacket from JANE.  It landed in my inventory just in time to rug up against the elements and survive the horrid weather we have been having for the past week. Also, just as a random side note I do have to say I love love love it when creators put jacket collars as spine attachments instead of chest ones, which Janie Marlowe of Jane does, so you are awesome, thank you!

I was also fortunate enough to get a nice little distraction from the miserable rainy weather by way of a surprise from the lovely Slava Parkin of Garage, who was kind enough to drop me off a copy of her newly released Alexa skin series to have a play with .  The skin comes in a plain or bronzed version and has a nice dewy feel to it. 

With 3 different skin shades annnnnnd some of Slava's fabulous tattoo layer eyeshadows and lashes, there is definitely something for everyone, so go and check out Garage!

Plurky Blogger Challenge - I'm Not a Transvestite, But I Love His Clothes!

Just in case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard about Alysha Rennahan blogger challenge, let me fill you in briefly.  Each week Alysha posts a challenge and you have to theme a blog post around it, pretty simple huh?  This week's challenge is to dip into the opposite sex's closet.

Raiding your significant other's closet is always fun because lets face it girls, most of their stuff is too big for us which automatically screams comfort factor annnnd just to add a cherry on top, we look cute to boot!  There are two things I regularly raid from the opposite sex's closet, the first would be hoodies, I have quite the collection to the prove it ha!  The second would be sleeping shirts, I swear there is nothing more comfortable than a nice worn in shirt with your guy's smell all over it to cuddle up in, couple that with some nice snugly pj pants and sweet dreams maddi!  Given that it is raining and miserable here at the moment I opted for the later option today because, oh yes, I love his clothes!

Dirty little freaks

So raise your glass if you are wrong in all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be anything but loud and nitty gritty,
Dirty little freaks,
Won't you come on and raise your glass...

I've had a few people lately ask where my skin is from because I don't credit it in every post.  This isn't because I want to take anything away from the wonderful designer or because I don't want to share it.  I don't change my skin all that often and I will always credit it when I do like I did way back here.  So if I haven't credited it in a while, it's pretty safe to assume I'm still using the same one.  But for those that are wondering Atomic's Audri Abyss 2 in porcelain by the amazingly talented Miss Ivy Graves is currently rocking my skin world.

I know I could love you much better than this

If all of the strength and all of the courage,
Come and lift me from this place,
I know I could love you much better than this,
Full of grace,
Full of grace,
My love...

I am in the middle of a torrid love hate affair with my Second Life viewer.  I LOVE that I can wear multiple layers and I think the introduction of the tattoo layer has been one of the best things ever!  I HATE that I still can't get shadows working properly in either of the Viewer 2 releases and the other authorized viewers kinda scare me.  But never being one to dwell on things I can not change lets focus on the all you wonderful creators out there creating tattoo layer makeup, I could just hug you!  I know this is not a new introduction but there seems to have been a flood of new makeup recently and I'm revelling in the ability to colour myself in all purdy like.  So if you haven't discovered the endless possibilities yet for yourself go and check out Cheap Makeup, Tik Tok, Garage and Kyoot just to name a few!

Everyone's got their chains to break

I've got another confession to make, I'm your fool,
Everyone's got their chains to break, holding you,
Were you born to resist, or be abused?
Is someone getting the best of you?

I love finding new stores I haven't yet raided and stumblebum this week pointed me in the direction of TokiD...I have two words to describe it, SUPER CUTE!

Plurky Blogger Challenge - It's a Formality Thing

I'm a jeans, shirt and boots kinda girl so the idea of getting all dressed up to me means painting my toe nails!  For some reason, I didn't think that would suffice for this challenge.  Fortunately however, one of the joys of SL is the ability to dabble in things you wouldn't normally do.  So here is my attempt at formality..

I haven't done any major manipulating with photos for a long time, so I'm hoping this has turned out ok.  I don't think it does justice to just how gorgeous a dress it is that I am wearing so i strongly recommend getting over to Phoenix Rising before the 30th of October and snapping it up for yourself for a mere $25L.

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

And I've always lived like this,
keeping a comfortable distance,
and up until now,
I had sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness,
because none of it was ever worth the risk...
