Just sayin'.....

I don't know where all of my readers are from, location wise in the world, but I am telling you this week it is a hot one in the US state of Indiana. You know it is bad when the US Weather Service puts out heat warning two days prior to the actual heat event takes place.

So, I thought why not tease summer with an article of clothing that I would normally wear in the fall? Try to upset summer and get fall to arrive a little early.....what was the old commercial trying to warn us about "don't fool with mother nature", or something like that.

Anyway, Moose Clothing ( has released these awesome hoodies in several colors and designs. I am telling you, these are a perfect fit and yes in the pictures I am wearing ONLY the hoodie, just sayin'.  These hoodies can be worn with shorts (yes, here in Indiana we have the habit of wearing a winter type of clothing on top and shorts for the, jeans, a skirt or even leggings. You really have to love versatile types of clothing!!

Summertime Carnivals!!!

Summertime in Indiana (where I am from) is always a time for the town carnivals or the county fairs and we can't forget the 4-H Fairs. This year I am a bit disappointed that I wasn't able to get out and attend our local fair, so I thought to brighten my day I would visit the carnival in SecondLife (SL).

Today, I received a blogger gift from Moose Clothing and immediately had to try them on! So, I thought why not wear something bright and colorful (at least for me) and go to the carnival.  The only problem with SL carnivals/fairs they don't have all the delicious foods that you can purchase when you go! I think that needs fixed The smell of the sausages, the onions and peppers being grilled, the sweet aroma of caramel corn. Of course I cannot forget the caramel apples or cotton candy :)

You should visit the carnival that I did today, it is very nicely decorated and has some very cool rides! Although, just like in real life, carnivals come and go, so will this one. I believe August 31 is the last date for it, so you best hurry!  Summer Fair & Carnival - Aero Pines Park  - Aug 1-31 

This outfit was so much fun to wear, the way the mesh moves and the wrinkles on the skirt make it so realistic. Much to my surprise after I put the outfit on, I looked at the back view and saw the "Obey" on the rear end and had to giggle. Such a cool idea! Both the top and the skirt come in several colors so you really need to check them out! Luckily for you, they won't disappear like summer carnivals do. :)

Too HOT to handle!

About 4 weeks ago, I entered the modeling world with no clue (and I mean NO CLUE) of what would happen next. There isn't much in SecondLife (further referred to as SL) that I haven't done, so I wanted to explore what  modeling had to offer. My SL sister asked me one day what I thought about entering modeling school, and since I had thoughts of modeling already I was more than happy to explore with her. Together we entered Fashion/Modeling University and began attending classes.

Along the way, we have gotten separated but we are both still on the modeling track. On my journey, I was blessed enough to meet Charltina Christensen and my life hasn't been the same since! So much to say regarding this angel and the Charltina's family!

She has designed a line of clothing that I will be posting about in the very near future and I am very excited to do so. Please support this wonderful creator and visit her shops on Marketplace  as well as her shops in-world: Charltina's Main Store     and Charltina's & Balladeer's Caribbean Retreat  .

The following outfits are the newest releases from Charltina and all I have to say is HOT!

The Moose Have Arrived!!!!!

Ok, so today was a day of taking risks and pushing myself out of my comfortable box. My blog is fairly new and my confidence is low especially when I look at other blogs of my peers such as Falbala Fairey (, Hethwen ( or Silvano Korobase ( There are many other AWESOME bloggers out there, too many to list, so this is by no means all of them. However, these bloggers are the ones that I strive to work towards. Anyway, back to my

So, today after my blogging class with Hethwen and some other students, I decided to push myself and see what I can find. Well I began searching for creators that were in need of bloggers for their fashion house. I found a few creators listed , looked them up on Marketplace and then I read their SL profile. To my surprise not many creators were listed in SL search and of the three that I found, I only found one of their profiles that discussed bloggers. I went back into Marketplace and looked at this creator's shop.....lo and behold, I fell instantly in love with the clothing!! So, I bought some items and started stylin'.

After some time playing with what I had purchased, I decided to contact the creator and go out on a limb. I sent a notecard with an inquiry as to what was required to become a blogger for that fashion house. The creator was very friendly and asked me to fill out an application for the blogging, so I did. My confidence faltered because my application wasn't very long and my blogging skills weren't that fine tuned or experienced. Reluctantly, I turned in my application and wished for the best.

A few minutes passed and I really didn't expect any positive results, then to my surprise, the creator contacted me in return. To my PLEASANT surprise, I was accepted to be a blogger for Moose Clothing and its owner/designer, Solostah Arabello!!! Officially I have a house I blog for and couldn't be happier for the opportunity!

Now I know that the clothes that follow in the pictures below have been released for a few days now, but I am going to give my twist on one combination in this post...don't worry, more will come from Moose Clothing. I promise!

I simply adore these clothes and cannot wait to create more ensembles! Special thanks to Solostah Arabello for giving me this opportunity!

Woohooo!!!!  I am running behind again...imagine that lol.  Working on a schedule so that I will be posting regularly, just be patient with me..learning overload here. :)

Don't we all love homework?? lol NOT...well on this particular homework, I LOVED it!!! I have to thank Jangsungyoung for working with me on my styling :) She is amazing!!!!

Anyway, on this particular assignment she asked that I dress in total black, BUT I couldn't use any prims or mesh UNLESS they were my hair or shoes. At first I panicked!! How was I going to do this?

Well, I have over 100,000 items in my inventory, so I have to stay organized to find things easily. Years ago I purchased a FABULOUS invention on marketplace that lets me do that. It's the
(CTS) Wardrobe and yes it's on Marketplace. Long story short, you enter a picture of your outfit and you get to put your own descriptors on each outfit. So, if you have an outfit named Emily, that tells you nothing about the outfit.....however, if it's in the wardrobe system, you can type in details, like "jeans, black, skirt, belt, skulls" whatever words that describe the outfit. When you need an outfit quickly you can find it (or elements of an outfit).

My first thought when I was given this assignment was to do a catsuit. Then, I thought well that is too easy and not unique like I wanted it to be. This outfit began as just a simple black corset, blue jean shorts, a ribbon choker, ribbons up my arms and legs, and my boots.

However, when I went to my learning session with Sung, she put a twist on the She then told me to take the outfit that I was wearing (she called it a base) and turn it into something Urban Chic. Yes, I could change hair and shoes (which excited me)!!!

Not knowing what Urban Chic looked like, I had to use Google to find images of that particular look. Once I found images, I went to town and had a blast! The following is what I ended up with:

LOVED IT!!!! Outfit details follow :)

Feeling a little sensual and worldly today so I decided to wear the outfit below and add the bolero on top. In the mood to do some salsa dancing and spend time exploring in this gorgeous outfit.

Yes, I am running behind on my daily'll get used to it just be patient! On Monday, August 5, I was out shopping for furniture. Let me give you some background information, I won the contest in the latest BOSL Magazine and received a lot of furniture and a beach cottage (Thank you to all the creators!!). So, I was out shopping at the stores listed in the contest just to see what other items I could find.

I went to The Nest sim and went into a shop called 11th Hour, owned by River Stromfield. The items in this store were not in the BOSL Magazine, however, the items are awesome! His mainstore is located at so go visit!! While there I decided that I would take some photos in my 1970s retro outfit.

I chose to pose in front of this cabinet because of the Americana theme on the front. Outside of the store were some displays and I wanted to take some out there as well.

Then, I decided to just take some random photos in my 1970s garb. This outfit really reminded me of Foxy Cleopatra, without the afro of course.
