Safety Levels on Flickr - A Blogger's Pitfall


I had a rather frantic weekend and week so far, after being zapped by Flickr - someone was offended by one or more of my pics not being designated "Moderate." Pay attention to the designations as Flickr designates, NOT as you might, because I can guarantee they are far more stringent than you might expect. For example, a thong bikini = Moderate. Nipple COVERS = Moderate. My penance was to redesignate each and every one of my over 2,000 pics into Flickr-correct categories. Twice. Glazed eye expression.

My first pic above is..."Safe!" However, the pic below is...definitely "Moderate." My gorgeous outfit by [JUSTICE] has skimpy bit part coverage for both top and bottom. I'm willing to bet 95% of Second Life bloggers would designate this Safe in their photostream. They would be wrong and at risk of doing the same penance if someone clicks the "I'm offended" button. It isn't worth it to try. But I do sincerely ask more Flickr groups to include Moderate pics. You don't want to miss including spectacular fashion like this, do you? ;)

Home & Garden Expo - Texture Me True (aka The Ceremony)


Finally. Finally!
The doors were locked, the lights turned out
And the employees left for the evening.
They gathered silently
to affirm, and witness, love's vows.

I'm sharing some beautiful textures created by Texture Me True, available at the RFL Home & Garden Expo 2017. Designers, builders of small or large scale, and even bloggers will certainly be interested in these. I even used one of the textures on a wall as a backdrop.

Our world is made much more interesting with beautiful textures!

Home & Garden Expo - Little Llama


A warm weather activity and need a place to socialize and chill? How about these fun items by Little Llama, found at the RFL Home & Garden Expo! The Cooler Hut, well, how clever! It looks just like a cooler. The OctoPicnic table seats 8, and is available in 3 textures. The Condiment Lights hunt gifts really do light up! Invite your friends over. These items are compact enough to fit in a yard, or make it your food/drink area next to a ball field. I think tiny house dwellers will get a kick out them too!

Event exhibitors present two 100% donation items, new and exclusive during the Expo's duration. You will find those, and more, as you stroll through the lovely creations which beautify our virtual world! Whether you are decorating a home, tiny garden or windowsill, or industriously landscaping a whole sim, this is the event for you!

The Ocean, Cute Swimwear and You


I'm not sure this section of the beach is the greatest for surfing, what with the rocks and boat over there, but perhaps if we paddle out farther and avoid? :p  There is a wonderful breeze playing havoc with my hair - Spring Breeze by Doe, at Whimsical. My darling retro swimsuit is by Sn@tch, called Vivian Polkadot Swimsuit. This is one of the riot offerings, with lots of colors included for classic avies and mesh bodies via an Omega hud. Check out the back of it below, and I added the sleeves that are included. I actually wore the swimsuit around while shopping! I added a little black skirt; the waist stripes rose above it and I must say it looked super cute.

In the first pic, I'm using a pose by Secret Poses, called Surf Girl (2). This is from a collection of poses - just add the board and voila, you're posed! Who doesn't need some surfing poses, really...t'is the season.

Flower Gleam and Glow


Flower gleam and glow,
Let your power shine,
Make the clock reverse,
Bring back what once was mine,

Heal what has been hurt,
Change the fates' design
Save what has been lost,
And bring back what once was mine,
What once was mine.

A Tisket, A Tasket, A Strawberry Basket


When one is picking strawberries, it is very important to wear the object of one's search upon one's clothing. That will get the attention of the strawberries, and they will strain to be seen, and picked. And eaten! Oh no, say the little strawberries. Too late. Plopping one in my mouth. Now I have strawberry-stained lips. (Just go with it, it's late and I'm slap-happy blogging, wink.)

So now that THAT paragraph is over with, here's the important part! My dress is called Sammi, by !MiNT! This store is a rebranding from :{Pretty Things}, so we'll find the cuteness we've known in the past and I can't wait to see what's new as well! You can find Sammi at Designer Circle until May 27th. 

My hair is some serious cuteness from -Desmonia-. This is Letoya. She is available at Level Up until May 30th. The textures are beautiful. I think Letoya can be a sexy number too - cast a flirtatious look under those long bangs and see who follows you home.

I have on some new rings, but I'll tell you about those in an upcoming post. How did we function without Bento, that's my question.
