It was called “Finally”, and *finally* I’ve managed to take time out from puppy-mothering ( NOT smothering!)to tell you all just how absolutely amazing it was. We were blessed to have two amazingly competent DJ’s entertain us with mixing and choonage that Neil and Chris would have surely been proud of. I can’t say the sim was bursting at the seams, but I can say that it was an appreciative, dedicated crowd who were in attendance throughout the night. In fact, I panned around the sim and saw a couple dancing away from the main club, which I thought rather lovely, they were there to enjoy all things PSB on their own terms:) I’ve had a few people tell me that they missed the event;well it was 4 hours long on a weeknight ( I managed to stay up until about an hour before the end) but I’m happy to report that if you want to enjoy the mixes in the comfort of your own home, and that’s EXACTLY what I am doing as I write this, then you can download them to your PC.
The wonders of modern technology eh? Oh and a word to the wise, watch out for Depeche Mode and New Order nights sometime in the near future!
Tim (DJNoNo) and Amanda ( DJ Miss Cyberpink) you did us PSB fans immensely proud:) Thank you!
Okay, SNATCH. Can Ivey Deschanel do no wrong? On current performance I’d say absolutely not, her designs are fresh and funky and just keep getting better. The past week has seen a few new releases from Ms Deschanel, and they’re all utterly splendid. For a start, I’m absolutely sold on the leopard print dress that she’s just released. Perfect pattern and fit, and rest assured it’s totally non-’Bet Lynch’ (Unless you want it to be! If you do I heartily suggest a cigarette holder and some Artilleri leopard print heels) Ivey always ups the bracket and this is no exception, whereas some designers charge you L$250 for a dress on its own, Ivey sells you a complete package. I’ve been wearing the dress with my signature bob hairstyle, ‘Patricia’ from ETD and the total look has left me feeling very feline-fine indeed:)
For those days when you feel decidedly ‘…’, which for me is usually Mondays, SNATCHprovides with a perfect jumper, skirt and legging combo called ‘Meh’, which is ideal for slobbing around in..should you slob around in SL. The slouchy socks are a great addition to the outfit and look tidy when mashed together with Tesla heels. This look works brilliantly when accessorised with hair, scarf and bag from Gritty Kitty. (To be honest if you wanna dress Neko I always suggest to people that mixing and matching between Gritty Kitty, Snatch, Nekorifik and Dutch Touch will keep you in wardrobe happiness for years to come. The Neko style ethos is all about mash-up, but you have to choose the right stores in the first place to be able to pull it off correctly..these designers are ideal as your starters for 10! Last but not least checkout ‘Die My Darling’, the latest addition to Ivey’s ‘Hunger’ line. Gothic, vampiric and extremely sexy it’s sure to get you noticed! This is blood red operatic ‘Interview with the Vampire’ wear, and comes replete with long black gloves. Again, it’s an awesome L$250 for the entire outfit. Madness really, why consider shopping anywhere else when you can buy clothes of this quality for such a reasonable price?
Fellow designers take note, when great style such as this is being offered at such great value prices you will have to pull out all the stops to compete. Only the strong will survive..and challenges that stem from such competition can only be a good thing for SL consumers and designers alike.
Yet another plug for Scarlet Creative here, but I’m also combining it with a big up for Ivey Deschanel, as yet more Sn@tch goodness has found it’s way in store and into my wardrobe. First of all this skin is called ‘Mode Soho Red’ and I like it very very much. My ONLY issue is the bottom lip is a tad too large for my larking, BUT if you want to look like a pouting vixen ( but not a trout pout) I’d seriously suggest that you try these on for size. I shall plost a tad more blurb about them in a bit- but check out the bikini from Sn@tch! How hot is this? and you should see what else is on offer..oh sod that I’ll show you…

Well, not quite..but you get my drift:) I’m boogying on down at the launch of ‘The Pig n Horn Pub’ . It’s Forever Delaids place, and he’s banned sheep..I can only presume because a) He’s allergic to lanolin or b) his last sheep dipping experience left him feeling underwhelmed…

Basically Jez has got a new bitch. ( Pause for dramatic effect..)
She has 4 legs and her name is Indiana:) We got a puppy, and seeing as it’s been her first week with us then you may begin to appreciate why I haven’t blogged. I’ve been busily de-pooping and being licked to death..and the puppy is great fun too! ( LOL) Seriously though she’s like a 7 wekk old ray of sunshine, and has been a reality check. Sometimes you can get too familiar with your PC screen, so it’s good to take a break. But fear not, I’m back and it’s time to play catch-up:) So without further ado…..
Boo! Believe it or not I have posted a few updates to the old site but for *some* reason unbeknown to me they haven’t worked, so as you can imagine I’m a tad peed off. Not to worry though as this post is just a quicky really to let you know that I have some really nice skins to share with you amongst other items from a new designer ( to me anyways) and I’ll be making up for lost time on the site tonight, so check back tomorrow! For a preview, if you look at my Flickr you’ll see some NEW shots but I haven’t had the chance to write any copy in relation to them just yet owing to a new arrival in our house…a four legged arrival incidentally, the universe couldn’t cope with a junior version of me!
In case you forgot……
Pet Shop Boys party at Parkade tonight
Details further down the page….come in your finest, and I look forward to seeing you there!
So, my second life and real life beloved turns thirty-something today and seeing as I produce this blog I thought I’d give him a shout out. As regular readers will know, Jez very rarely bothers with SL. He’s a WoW fiend, and spends his time in dungeons twatting goblins and other assorted creatures. It’s been suggested that Jez is actually my alt, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. When I first started out in SL, Jez and I lived over a hundred miles apart and had been conducting a long-distance relationship for a few years, and each weekend one of us would make the long journey across the M62 to visit the other. When I joined SL I encouraged (nagged) him to join so we could spend time in world together instead of just nattering on the phone. His move into SL was purely for our mutual amusement and when he moved into my home in RL a few months ago his involvement pretty much ceased. I don’t mind that really…he LOVES WoW and he’s an earnest gamer. I often sit on my laptop in SL with Jez sat on the opposite side of the table raiding dungeons galore. He doesn’t really ‘get’ SL if I’m perfectly honest, nor does he see the fun in ambling around SL like I do. I feel the same about WoW…why on earth would I want to run around casting spells, healing people and getting into all sorts of scrapes when I could be in Tesla nomming shoes, or dancing around like a loon at ‘Parkade’ or ‘The Crown and Pearl’?
However, he DID promise me last week that he would come to the Pet Shop Boys night at Parkade on Thursday ( as featured previously on this blog) so if you still question Jez’s very existence pop along and see him in all his glory! (Yes, by writing this here he has NO get out clause for not appearing, boy I’m a devious little minx sometimes!)
So a very Happy Birthday indeed my beloved. I adore you and thanks for making the last 6 years the best of my life, and if you’re a good boy I’ll make sure you get a happy finish later xxxxxx
