IT’S BAAAAAAAAACK – The A-Z Challenge!

Some of you may not be aware that for many years I ran a challenge called the A-Z Challenge, there really aren’t many rules – Just your entire look/post has to be letter themed – so for A all the stores/creators/items/colours need to start with A! Not all of them, obvs, but one of them… anyway it’s really simple and it’s really fun yet it IS kinda challenging, except for that one year when we got stuck on X and I just wore an X-ray Avatar from the Marketplace ūüėÄ

This year I am kicking it off with the help of Beulah! YAY! We are cross posting on each others blogs to get the word out there, so make sure you check her blog out even though her items are listed here, we both have our own style of blogging and crediting and there is tons to read over there! ¬†Including, of course, MY POST!! ‚̧

Also if you join in, be sure to join and add to the Flickr Group!

I saw many a reference to a 7 Random Facts MEME… so here I am with mine! You won’t get credits for the picture because it’s a random of me and Bunsis, but if you want to know anything, just hollah ‚̧

Vimto Moment


I’ve been in SL for 9 years this May, NINE!! ¬†I often wonder if that’s a good or bad achievement. ¬†I wouldn’t change signing up though, I’ve made some rad friends over the years.


I’m very sensitive, I may joke around and pretend that I don’t mind things, but I do. ¬† I don’t have much confidence in RL or SL, and I get really upset and genuinely hurt by people that are mean, not just to me, but just mean spirited in general. I’ve recently been *very* upset about something that probably wouldn’t bother anybody else half as much, but I just try to be happy that I’m a good person, who tries her best to be just that, in both worlds.


I was once in a publication about SL, with an Inventory Sorting article! ¬†My Inventory is now a complete shambles and I am ashamed of it, I can’t even bring myself to sort it for more than 10 minutes at a time.


I don’t rate my fashion sense or my pictures at all. ¬†Probably not something a blogger should admit! But I try my hardest to make a good, clear, clean picture.. so I just do my thing, the way I want to and occasionally try to step outside my comfort zone


I am not very socially comfortable. ¬†People often assume because you can be quite sociable on other platforms, like Plurk, or Flickr, that you must have oodles of friends. ¬†I do have friends, but we very rarely see each other. ¬†Infact when the picture above was taken, Madi was probably the first person i’d physically seen in SL for over a week! ¬†I’m a hermit. ¬†I don’t often like it but it is what it is.


I don’t like to cause a fuss, whether it’s an undelivered item or a double purchase. ¬†I would probably just count it as an accidental loss instead of asking about it, unless it was like $L20000000 lindens. ¬†


Blogging is really all I do in SL, I haven’t got a home (although I do rez them for pictures! and loveeee to collect them), and I don’t really just ‘Hang Out’, I tend to log in, do my thing, log out. ¬† I go through phases, at times I want to log in daily and just tinker in around with looks, sometimes I don’t want to log in for days at a time, although I do if I have something to blog.

See, I’m a very boring, over sensitive person. ¬†How inane! ¬†I loved reading other peoples though ūüôā


WoC2: Gold

I’m wondering, it being nearly Christmas, if we were supposed to create an outfit fit for the wise men to present to the baby Jesus this week. If so, I think we’ll send either Arbs or Willis, both of whom are dressed to the demure yet attractive nines, because my corset may prove a corrupting influence and not even pixel smoke is good for newborns.

WoC2: Cotton Candy

Always nice to have a cutesy colour – gives one a chance to don pretty undercrackers, wistful hair or bunny ears. I therefore heartily approve of this week’s shade, although it has left me with a certain craving for sugar.

WoC2: Tangelo

We’ve had quite a few orange shades over these 52 weeks of coloured glory, but none so bright and vivid as this week’s choice. If you weren’t feeling cheery before you landed on this post, you will be after staring at Tangelo for a couple of seconds.

WoC2: Barley Corn

This week’s colour may be called Barley Corn, but due to its coincidental timing and similarity to the hue of the traditional food item we on the American side of the ocean will be sharing tomorrow, I dub this Turkey Week.

I did not, however, inform Willis or Arbel of Turkey Week before the pictures were taken, as I knew precisely what would happen if I did. Consequently, my Thanksgiving gift to you all is some actual fashion, with no ghosts, bananas or actual turkeys. You’re welcome.

WoC2: Juniper

Still impressed with the LOGO mesh heads this week as, somehow, Arbers and I have managed to look completely different. As does Willis, but she did that by cheating and using her own head.

Willis would like me to let you all know that her colour look this week is also a Collabor88 look. The same is not true for Arbel and myself, however. What you are seeing on both of us is inspired largely by the joy and obsession of discovering mesh heads. I’ve mentioned before the theory that friends end up looking like one another – we clearly took that concept literally this week.

Inspire Me: Week 1: Wednesday!

So, over on SLBlogger Support, there is a challenge of sorts, it’s called Inspire Me¬†and we are currently on Wednesday of Week 1! I had hoped to make this a daily challenge but I think I will use it for what it was meant for, to inspire you on days where you’re just like.. WHAT DO I DOOOOOOO???

I was sorting my inventory, lost in a sea of UGGGH WHAT IS THIS, WHERE IS IT FROM? WHEN DID I GET IT, WHAT DO I DO WITH IT, and other common inventory sorting woes, and I came across this Trenchcoat from NiNight Designs. ¬†I admit I didn’t know I had it, that is how out of control my inventory has gotten lately, I need some solid time to sit and sort, and I got a fair bit today in a short amount of time, so all is good! ¬†Anyway, I thought this coat would fit in perfectly with today’s inspiration theme: ¬†Favourite¬†Things to Do on a¬†Rainy¬†Day!… one of my all time fav things to do on a rainy day, is put on my coat and just walk, walk in the rain… ok after a while I get fed up of being wet and I might put my umbrella up and eventually I will think WTF I HATE RAIN… but the sound of rain comforts me, it soothes me, and I like to just wander in it, of course it soon gets tiresome, like one day of rain a month is enough to fill up my quota thank you very much, but it’s still one of my fave things to do on a rainy day: go for a stroll, all wrapped up and cosy.

Inspire Me: Week 1: Wednesday

Also seen in this picture are the TDR items from both La Gyo and YS & YS! ¬†The skin is a pale beauty and comes with half body freckles, which I put on to give me a slightly more innocent look, the pearl necklace is a beaut! A timeless classic. ¬† The hair you can see is the Alice Project Grace Hair, it’s a HUNT gift and is situated in the main store and comes with two colour huds!! Do love me a gorgeous freebie hair, especially Alice Project ones with all the HUDs I own! YAY!

So there you go, this was my inspiration for today, thanks SL Blogger Support for a wonderful idea! ‚̧

WoC2: Charcoal

Thankfully, everyone turned up in the right colour and with their bodies intact and alive this week. Which was nice. I cannot vouch for the same happening next week, but I have my fingers crossed.
