Is my cell phone working?

Dear Diary:
However did I manage without a cell phone?  I woke up this morning and found out it wouldn't work.
Oh boy!!  I can shop for a new phone!!  So I went out to look at a few.  Nokia Island was one of my stops.
When I walked in, the Customer Service counter was right in view.  I was directed to the display of apps that were available for my new phone.

There also was a fun keyboard that you could play with and see yourself on the BIGGG monitor.  You could choose different backgrounds and poses.  I spent a lot of time just playing around.
Then all of a sudden my phone rang!!  WHAAAAT?? I ran outside to take the call.
 Hmmm....that was strange.  I tried texting.
And that worked too.  Well, I guess I'm stuck with this old phone for awhile.  I could spend the money on shoes instead.

Good Night for now.

OMG!!! It's FREE!!!

Dear Diary:

You know how I love clothes.  I tell you about my shopping trips ALL the time.  But this time you'd be very proud of me.  This past week I found 4 fantastic dresses and they're all FREE!

The first one is a great colourful and very versatile sweater dress.
I've worn it now, at this time of year, but I can see it in the fall over a pair of leggings with boots.  I love the brightness of the colours and the funnel neckline.  I'm truly taken with this dress.  It perks me up every time I put it on.

The next one is so much fun to wear.
The colour is so complimentary to any skin tone.  The shimmery raspberry skirt is filmy and floats when you walk.  I love the funky flower head band.  It matches the pin on the dress but can be left off if you don't like it.  This dress can be worn for an afternoon lunch or to a club at night with a nice touch of glitzy jewelry.

The third dress was a great find.
I love the poofy skirt on this dress.  It works well for cocktails or to a dance.  The material is like "shot" taffeta....the colour shimmers with a variety of hues depending on the light.  It looks mauve but blues, pinks and greens can be seen in the material on the skirt.

The last is without a doubt my fav!
I adore the baby doll type dresses and this one is one of the best.  The lace over skirt hangs so well from the bodice and floats when you walk.  The lace trim on the underskirt looks very delicate and yet, stands out well from the rest of the dress.  I found other colours in the store but the white is so pretty for this time of year.

So...don't you think I did good this week, Dear Diary????  I found great finds.  The dresses can be worn for a variety of social events in SL and are perfect for my lifestyle.  I'll have to look for more in the weeks to come...I just LOVE clothes!!

Good Night for now.

Live Music

Dear Diary:

The other night I went to a live music concert at The Foundry.  Maximillion Kleene was performing.  He's a terrific singer!  He puts his own touch to new songs and performs many of his own creations too.  His concerts are always packed so I wanted to get there early and stand out in the crowd so I decided to wear a new outfit.
I love this top from Modern Gypsy.  The bright colours seemed to fit right in with the party mood of the concert.  It's trendy so I just had to buy it.  But I found out it goes with lots of things in my closet.  I picked up the leggings from The Dressing Room.  They came in three colours and this pair went so well with the top...they're SOOOO sexy...and the set was a bargain too!
The crowd was in a good partying mood so it didn't take me long to feel like dancing.  I was wearing my new stilettos but didn't think twice about how my feet were going to feel at the end of the night.  "Vanity thy name is woman!" 
Shake it!!

After Max finished, I was on a roll so it was time to head out to another party.  Thank goodness I didn't have to go to work the next day. **Sigh** 

Good Night for now.

A visit to the Basilica

Dear Diary:
There's a wonderful church that I've been meaning to revisit. It's the Basilica Cardinale Cathedral Church.
I was here awhile back but was "inappropriately" dressed, according to the Father so this time I wore reserved colours.  
But to go in, I did need to wear a summer hat and gloves and cover up my bare shoulders.
 I lit a candle once inside and was overcome by the spiritual aura in the surroundings.
 When I walked up the aisle, I was taken by the simple but beautiful altar.
I knelt to say thanks for my wonderful family, my terrific friends and my charmed life.  The visit brought me an overwhelming peaceful calm.  What a happy day!

Good Night for now.

Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

Dear Diary:

You know how I love clothes, jewelry, hair styles...but I'M FANATIC ABOUT SHOES!!
I want to tell you about my favourite pairs of summer wedges that I have in my closet right now.
 I love the Zebra design from Indie Rose.  The ankle part straps around the ankle, attaches to the side and into the sole.  The print is very authentic looking and there are two other animal prints to choose from. The fabric part also comes in a variety of solid colours.  The  wedge part is a darker colour so it compliments any of the fabric colours.  The HUD for skin colour and nail polish is very easy to use. The look of this shoe is SOOOOO sexy.
The shoes from Surf Couture have a closed in toe which gives it a more casual look.  The wedge is a little different shape, being more sculpted.  The texture has a wooden appearance but fits nicely onto the fabric.  The shoes fit well on the foot, and show a little toe.  Because they are more casual looking, they're very versatile and can be worn with pants, shorts or a dress.  They come in a variety of two-tone effects.
Of course, the Espadrilles by Gos, are very popular right now, and have been discussed at length.  The picture showing the back of the shoe, shows how well made they are.  Notice the heel piece that attaches onto the sole, with the ribbon.  It surrounds the heel well, and shows how the ribbon weaves in and out.  That piece and the heel are covered in burlap and show great detail in the making.  The ribbons fall discreetly to  the back of the shoe and are tied in a comfortable manner.  This wedge displays a lot of detail in the making.  The nice part is after buying the initial shoe, every colour is only a fraction of the cost.  How sweet is that!!!  I have several colours and will probably go back for more. 
These Rainbow Wedges are fun!  The bright colours let you wear them with a variety of things from the closet.  I love the hummingbirds on the front.  The HUD gives you a good sampling of nail polishes for your toes and skin samples that cover a wide range.  ::Page 3:: has several multi-coloured pairs and some that are solid.  A very good selection made it hard to choose just one. 

All of these shoes are quite reasonably priced so I was able to purchase LOTS of each.  I do love shoes.  I can't tell you how many pairs I have in the closet but I think there's always room for just one more pair.  I'm going to be dreaming of shoe stores tonight.

Good Night for now.

Uma visita ao Brasil!

Dear Diary:
I bought this FANTASTIC dress and then wondered where I could go to show it I went to my favourite travel agency, Agencia de Viagens, and they told me ...BRAZIL!!
I bought this dress at Timmy's, a new store to me.  It was a special buy but all the clothes were very reasonable in price.  I spent a lot of time there and will definitely go back for more items.  I love their designs. I love the way this scarf falls around the neck.  The top accentuates the hips and the skirt is so swishy.  I just LOVE this dress.  And I had shoes to go with it!!  That was a plus!
 This location offered everything - a beach with a bar, or a fountain with surrounding shops.  On the beach were romantic stops along the way.  A lovely setting!!
 After all the exploring, some shopping, a drink on the beach, ending with some dancing, I came home and rolled into bed.

Good Night for now.

Comfortable summer clothes

Dear Diary:
When the days are really hot, I like to dress comfortably.  I picked these up at G Field.
I love the chiffon top.  It can be worn a variety of ways.  Here I'm wearing it sleeveless with a pair of capris that I bought at the same time, and some comfortable sneakers.  But.....
here I'm wearing it with the sleeves, sexy white chinos and stilettos.  I love the versatility of this top.  It looks awesome with a skirt too.  
The top comes in a variety of colours so it was hard to choose which one.  Think I'll go back for another.

Good Night for now.

A Visit to New York

Dear Diary:
My friend, Chloe and I agreed to meet in the New York station last weekend.
But she was cooling off by the harbour.
After an hour of searching, I spotted her coming up the escalator.
"Now where was that restaurant I wanted to go to?" she asked.  URRRRRGH!
 She finally asked a passing policeman for help.
 At least we looked good!

Good Night for now.

Let's Hit the Beach!

Dear Diary:

Wow!!  It's so hot!  It was a great time to find a beach and sit in the water all day.  I found a very quiet picturesque place with sand dunes, rolling waves, and only one house that doesn't seem to be occupied.  I ran to get into my bathing suit.  Hmmm...which one would I choose?  Well, let's try them all on.  When one gets wet, you can always put on another.

I worked on my tan - slowly - and it's paying off.  Think I'll keep the bikinis on hand for awhile.

Good Night for now.

Doing a little sight seeing

Dear Diary: It was beautiful weather so I went to Principato de Melioria, to the Villa Ve.
The peacocks and the guns protected the Villa from invaders...especially the peacocks.
 The beautiful formal dining room in the Villa displays treasures of china, furniture and paintings.
After walking around the huge villa, I needed to rest in the art restoration room.
The grounds are very peaceful and full of water gardens and flowers.
 Of course even sight seeing you need to do a little shopping..going in...coming out!
Finishing with a glass of wine in this beautiful setting makes for a perfect day.

My feet's so good to sit down.

Good night for now.
