EXPOtential!

I am sorry about the title.  I just wanted to make a clever word with Expo in it.  It is to let you know that I have more Home and Garden Expo items for your viewing pleasure.  The Expo is only a couple of days away from finishing, so if you haven't been over...

WHY THE HANG NOT?

Still, you have some time to get yourself over to peruse the sims and grab up some amazing new stuff.  Perfect time to redecorate or even to get a new house altogether!

I Know You Want It

A friend of mine had this fun idea to do a picture inspired by Robin Thicke's new song, "Blurred Lines."

To be honest, I could've done a picture, but I was lazy and I hated the angles I took my pictures at. Instead, I'm going to post the pictures that the two lovely ladies took. I mean, who can really compete with their talent? My picture just wouldn't have done them any justice.

To know what they're wearing click on the pictures to go to their blogs!

Jacket: Kal Rau - Casual Blazer

Shirt: Hoorenbeek -Suit Shirt w/Ties

In the Rain

I do like standing in the rain.  It is refreshing.  I like the feel of the raindrops on my skin.  I am also a big kid cos I will stand in the rain and open my mouth and catch droplets on my tongue.

It felt like a nice day to enjoy the rain in SL too.  The best thing about SL rain is that I don't have to dry off after or get warm!

Once I Throw On This, It's Over Girl

Man, I was on a roll for awhile with posting/blogging, but then RL started to get all crazy again. How dare it!

Anyways, enough of that, I'm going to jump right into this. I love these new hats from DECO, they're perfect to keep me cool during these hot summer days. To match it, I'm wearing the new tops from Ispachi,
You can wear the top with or without the long sleeves. The best part is that it comes with an HUD for an assortment of different textures! Ispachi rocks with their options.

Now excuse me, I've got to fix up this truck and finish the yard!

Hat: DECO @ the mens dept- MESH Ratty Ball Cap
Tops: Ispachi@ Boutique- Mesh Rebellion Double layered Shirt

Coffee Required

It was definitely a day for coffee.  Been a long one.  So, this gave me the inspiration for coffee and fashion today.  A great combo.

Today is all about some new items from some fav designers of mine.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

It is also a chance for me to have a wee rant.  If you just want to skip ahead and enjoy the fashion, then do so now, but if you like a bit of a read, then carry on!

RANT WARNING

I was out and about shopping yesterday when I came to a store where some others were gathered.  While I waited for things to rez, I happened to glance at the local chat and was appalled to see someone complaining about the item that was put out on sale.

I tped out of there after viewing the item and, while I didn't purchase the item as it wasn't for me, the attitude of the 'customer' bothered me.

Firstly, this designer takes time to make these items.  I have watched designers doing their thing and I know the time and effort that goes into making the things that we buy.

Secondly, the stores do not HAVE to offer us reduced items.  They do it because they want to and it brings people to their stores.

Thirdly, when people like Miss Whiney complain like that it affects the rest of us who appreciate the effort sale items.  Sure, the item wasn't my thing either, but I am sure it was for many.  I am just hoping that particular designer doesn't hear about the shocking attitude of ONE and pull out of this particular event, because that would suck.

When I go looking at items I have a choice to buy it if I like it, or not.  Sometimes items grab me and I grab them.  Sometimes the items don't interest me, and that is ok. No one forces me to buy anything.  However, I do NOT stand around and moan and complain to all in my hearing.  That is just rude.  My grandmother used to say, "If you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing."  Wise advice.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

RANT OVER

I would like to use this space to say thank you to all the designers who put out items for 50L Friday, 60L Weekend etc etc week after week.  I, for one, appreciate your effort and that I can buy items at a VERY reduced price.  Keep up the fabulous work!

Hair is from Truth, skin is from Tuli and poses are from Glitterati and Focus Poses.
