Finally!

After much sweating and swearing, I finally got my ass in gear. Dobby is on his way home. I think he just wants his feed.

But I have to tell you, this is the most amazing makeup. Despite all of the work it took to get Dobby going, my makeup is in perfect shape! I heartily recommend the designers.

I Love My Plants

My houseplants are starting to look a little winter weary. After a brief morning shower, the sun is coming out and it is predicted to be a fine day. I’m taking my houseplants out onto the front porch to get a little sunshine.

My dress is an absolutely wonderful FREE gift for anyone in the FabFree group, which is also free to join. The HUD has colors and patterns for just about any mood. There are solid, gingham, polka dot and tropical options. Just wear your FabFree tag and head over to Petry Model Store. There are more group gifts and a ton of discounted items there, too!

Also note that the skin I’m wearing is the current group gift from Seven (7DS). Currently the group is 425L to join.

Green Fairies

With a garden this magical, surely a leprechaun will be attracted to it. I’d love to find a pot of golden Lindens buried in my yard!

I don’t usually do two posts in one day, but this lovely emerald green dress by PM got my attention. It is on sale TODAY, for 50L during the Hello Tuesday sale.

Martini Time

What a Doll!

It’s Barbie’s Birthday! When I was a kid, I had a Barbie, but her wardrobe was so pitiful, she wasn’t much fun. The girl down the street, however, had several small suitcases stuffed with glitzy, glamorous clothing and accessories. I probably drove her nuts when I went over there, asking to play Barbie, just to borrow some of her doll’s outfits.

Today is also the Grand Re-Opening of my blog, Excessories. Since I’m a Second Life Shopaholic, I have an overflowing, excessive inventory. Forget trying to stay under (mumble-mumble thousand) items. I’m blowing the lid off by doing even more shopping, then unpacking, sorting and sharing photos of my goodies, most of which I’ve acquired during the many sales and giveaways by generous creators.

I’m very good at shopping and hunting, but my sorting tends to lag, so there will be a lot of older items in these photos, some of which may no longer be available.

As for what’s shown above? Let’s GO!

Wishing for Spring

When I was little, if my mother was cold, she made me put on a sweater. I hated that! But, here I am making Em do that. It’s a chilly and breezy day today, so Em has to stay warm too.

I purchased this sweater and skirt set from Beyond a few weeks ago. It was on sale, with each piece priced separately. I couldn’t make up my mind which ones I wanted, so I ended up splurging on the fat pack. It was also sale-priced, so it wasn’t too much of a splurge!

I chose transitional colors — a bit of gray for the sky (and my mood) and pink for comforting hope of spring.

Don’t Touch Your Face, Em!

I haven’t posted in quite a while. Last fall, I made a long distance move, lived in an apartment for a while, then went house hunting. After that, it was remodel, decorate and move again! Then I spent time enjoying my new city followed by some minor health issues.

Ok enough excuses. Thanks to COVID-19 and staying at home, I’m BAAACKK!!

I’m always reminding myself not to touch my face…and to wash my hands. I found this shirt a few weeks ago. It is part of a set put out by American Bazaar as a group gift.

Strange Treasure

Some strange treasure washed up on me beach. It be holdin’ a bit o’ the briny deep without leakin’ out. Shiver me timbers down to me bones!
