Confessions of a Slacker

So, I must admit it, I have been slacking on my blogging duties somewhat fiercely, but please bear with me as I have been doing other amazing things as well! What I would kill for to have a good manager so I could delegate some tasks.  The Pier Market will be welcoming back Drua, Reverie, and Loordes of London for next round among some others, so I am very excited.  Still NO sign of Smash which makes me extremely worried and I hope shes ok.  Bad Unicorn clothing has come out with some cute bucket hats, and Hipster fair opened, and I TRIED to fight the lag but I gave up having only seen like 3 stores.  I will have to try later when the rush dies down.

outfit:

  • hat: [BUC] “Navy Blue” Brixton Bucket Hat
  • hair: Lamb, Pocket knife (collabor88)
  • shirt: -SSW- -unnamed shirt- (hipster fair)
  • pants: {.:OZI:.} Boho Pants (hipster fair)

Pre-event Jitters

It has been nearly three weeks since Smash has been gone and I am really worried about her.  It feels downright odd to face opening night without her…she is, after all my Pier Market partner in crime.  Either way, I am really looking forward to starting off 2014 with some really awesome creators I might not have ever met if it weren’t for the Pier Market.  I knew of the owners of Oceania but had no idea they ran a store named Free Bird… then Loordes of London, well who hasn’t heard of that store? Thumper aka PaulCook of Reverie is slightly dark and gothic and it shows in his clothing….and of course Willow of Eyelure whom I discovered awhile back and have loved blogging for.  We also have DruWear, Phoenix Collections, Grumble and StoraxTree rounding out an amazing set of designers.  I met Mara who runs xXSecond Star through moderating arcade gacha and kept her creative rear around and I consider her a close friend…who knows what friendships will come from running this event? We will see!

Just wanted to show off some of the exciting releases from our designers, shake off some pre-opening jitters and excitedly tell you all The Pier Market opens tonight @ Midnight SLT!

Calm before the Storm

I have been wayyy behind on blogging lately due to focusing my efforts on getting The Pier Market started…and maybe a lil bit sidetracked for a short time writing larger-ish chunks of the fiction story that has been in my head.  Am I allowed to be proud of myself that I managed to pull this all together with Smash being gone?  I do not know how I did, as she really keeps me on task and I had to really struggle to keep myself on task but…I did it! If the Pier Market was a present its reached the “ready to open” stage and in 4 ..no oops, 5 days I will be excitedly watching everyone come shop there!  So big thank you to the vendors, who are as large a part of this as the venue itself, I am glad to be working with you! The bloggers who will be our trumpeters letting everyone know it has finally opened, I am excited to see what you have to say.

The Pier Market starts on January 20th and features Wolf&I, xX Second Star, Loordes of London, Eyelure, Liv Glam, free bird, L!KE, the Phoenix Collection, DruWear Designs, StoraxTree, Reverie, Grumble and Couture’d Bacon <3 Cant wait to see you there!

As an aside, I love this store Cashmere and Keane, maybe with enough cajoling we can get him involved in The Pier Market, eh? :P

Happy New Year

I hope you all had a great start to 2014!  Im excited because there is sooo many new things coming up for The Docks this year, and soon The Pier Market will be open! If you want to get updates head on over to TPM’s facebook page!  Anyyyyhooo… there is almost nothing more compelling for me then Lelutka hair…so when the talented Thora put out her newest release I was of course huffy at first because naturally, I was broke! Nothing is worse for a Lelutka fan than being caught broke on new release day…only one thing that is worse and that is veggie bacon.  So after getting some money I got her new releases and had a bit of a wander around her sim.  Her formal wear is top notch and then I came across in her formal section a classy looking top with an octopus on it …yes my head asploded.  There were Scar pixels everywhere! I love nautical themed things as much as bacon, so I KNEW I had found my top for NYE.  Problem was…what to put with it? Then, small miracles, found the perfect pants at Limited Bazaar, and my day was made!  Paired it with the awesome arcade gacha PurePoison jewelry and I was unstoppable!

outfit:

  • hair: Lelutka, Maleficent
  • top: Lelutka, Ariel jacket
  • pants: fendty, joanna.metallicleggings.silver (limited Bazaar)
  • shoes, feet & hands: Slink
  • skin: Deesses, Alicia
  • jewelry: Pure Poison, Star Set (arcade gacha, closed)

Life is full of interruptions

Love actually has been a favorite film of mine for years, so when Flowey came out with these cardboard signs as a free gift, I could NOT resist!  Naturally I’m in love with this santa jacket as well, so I couldn’t cover it up with the sign so with some creative thinking, I got everything in the picture.  In case you were wondering, I already have fabulous people in my life, my kids, well not my health but who does these days, right? So the “you” in the sign is naturally referring to crispy bacon, in case you were wondering :P  In other news, my darlingest wifey Keri has started her own blog so feel free to check her out HERE.  We were all new once, and I am pretty sure she will surprise us over the next year with her mad skills!

Happy Boxing day to my british friends, specifically Tek, and will someone PLEASE take this snow that is STILL falling, I’ve had QUITE ENOUGH, thank you!
