52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Wales

I am sorry I am late with this.  I have THE best excuse though.  The power box outside our house exploded and melted the telephone wires as well.  It was very exciting.  But I was in internet withdrawal last night, I can tell you!

Anyway, here is my take on Wales...

Pie Time

Came home to find that Harper had surprised me with a fresh baked pie! When did she become Miss. Betty Crocker? She's been watching too much of that Paula Dean on T.V., I tell you!
Unfortunately, I don't really like pies, but to be a good sport, I tried it anyways. Girl has got some skills.
Want to know more about the pie, pose, and dress she's wearing from the Vintage Fair? Visit Harper's blog!

Vacation, Holiday; They're All The Same

I'm back from my trip to Melbourne, Australia! I loved every minute I was there and it was very much needed. Melbourne is a city with a lot of personality and character. It's not busy and aggressive like New York, but has it's own charm. It appreciates art, diversity, culture, and I loved the local eateries (keep my stomach full and I'm a happy camper). Every street you turned onto, offered something different, yet even more amazing than the last.

I left on the day hair fair started, so as soon as I got back, that was my first stop. I also stopped by one of my favorite men's store, Kal Rau. While there, I picked up the store group gift as well as a pair of mesh jeans.

Hat: Argrace @ Hair Fair - Straw Fedora/Crosby Dark Brown
Shirt: Kal Rau- Promo V-neck Mesh
Jeans:  Kal Rau  - Baggy Jeans M2 Mesh


Tired Out

I am tired cos I got up early to watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony.  Loved it.  Also cos I am still sick.  Cough, hack, cough...sniff.

So don't get too close to the screen or you might catch it.

Anyway, illness aside, the items are not tired or sick, unless you are a youngster and then the items are "really sick" (translation - awesome).

Pre-Weekend Furniture Bonanza

I love getting ready for the weekend in SL, and today I am being super organised.  That is only cos I told a friend of mine that I was going to be.  I decided it was about time you actually saw weekend items before the weekend actually finished.  Easier to get the items that way!

Bunch of [SAKIDE]

One of my fav stores is [SAKIDE] and I love blogging their items because they offer such a wide variety from casual to formal and everything in between.  I realised once I had done the pics that I had a whole black and white thing going on, broken only by a splash of red.  That was probably not important info, but there ya go!

The items I am showing you today are all from events that are happening around the place.
