Sunday Squee: Eurovision Song Contest

The Sunday Squee is when I can talk about things that make me happy and excited. The main focus will be on different things people created, from books to movies to television shows to podcasts, and my effort will be to highlight less commonly known things as a way to share what I love. If you want to join in the Sunday Squee, please link back to me so I can enjoy what you love!

N'oubliez Pas by Lisa Angell representing France

I blame you all - yes even you! - for not telling me about this sooner.

I'm angry! I'm really angry! Well, yes, I can't stop smiling and I keep giggling at inopportune moments - but I'm angry, really! I could have known about this years ago, and yet I found out about it last night.

Adio by Knez representing Montenegro

You were all leaving me out.

Love Injected by Aminata representing Latvia
(Content Note: Strobe lights)

Eurovision is DELIGHTFUL. Yes, the all caps is necessary - you must feel what I am feeling! It is such a divine mix of the serious, the absurd, the portentous, and a pile of giggles. Everyone takes it so seriously - as they should! - without taking it seriously at all, and I am seriously in love.

I watched the whole thing on YouTube.

De La Capat / All Over Again by Voltaj representing Romania

For people new to it like I am, the Eurovision Song Contest is a giant party Europe throws so everyone can trash talk each other, enjoy each other, come together in rage and joy. It began in the wake of World War Two, in 1956, and welcomes not just Europe proper but a small cadre of surrounding countries. The first was held in Switzerland among seven ocuntries, each submitting two songs. The contest this year began with a total of 40 countries, winnowed down to 27 for the Grand Final. A whole ton of countries come together, make a video representing their country, and then sing a song. The songs are judged by panels from each country as well as the residents of each country in a 50/50 split.

There are all kinds of subtleties I'm sure I'm missing. Tumblr assures me that shade, trash talk, and critique in the form of point refusal is rampant. The videos introducing each country seem pregnant with meaning, what is shown and what is not equally important. All I know is that wonderful people come out with fantastic stage performances and whatever quality they might be on any sort of scale, the sheer dedication and enthusiasm is infectious.


Wars For Nothing by Boggie representing Hungary

I'm putting the videos I enjoyed the most (it was so difficult to pick! I just kept adding!) in between these admittedly short paragraphs. I can't really say much more than they can show - but to my eternal bliss and glory there are years of these on the internet, free to watch. I will be bouncing and giggling for a very long time, and I have you to thank for it, Europe!

The winner this year was Sweden, with Heros.

Sincerely, thank you! This has been a hard year. Your party makes it much more fun.

Looks Nos 96 & 97: Denim Is A Way Of Life

"Give a girl the right jeans and she can conquer the world."
~ Unknown ~

Hello again! I'm back with several new items from one of my newest sponsors, I'pitemé. Toy Wiskee is the founder and designer of this wonderful little boutique. Not only does she design clothes, but she also designs shoes and furniture items as well. Now, for those of you who read my blog regularly, you know that I love great quality, great looking clothes that come packaged with color/texture HUDs and this is one of the reasons I love I'pitemé. The other reason is her pricing...you will always get amazing value.

For today's post, I have want to show you five new items that have just been released this past week in two casual outfits; do note, to save some time, I have kept the shoes, hair and jewelry the same for both.

All items are available on I'pitemé's Marketplace store; however, if you go to the main store and join the VIP group, you will receive a group discount that  you will not get on Marketplace. It is recommended that you try all the demos prior to purchase to ensure a great fit.


Look No. 96: Suede Fringe Halter and Skulls Distressed Jeans

In this first look, I am wearing a sexy Suede Fringe Halter top with some very cool Skull Distressed Jeans. The Suede Fringe Halter is a mesh tip and available in six mesh sizes and comes with a color HUD that will give you 16 gorgeous jewel tones to choose from. This top will fit most of the mesh bodies out there.

The Skulls Distressed Jeans is also mesh and is available in five sizes. If you're a rocker chick or like to sometimes bring out the rocker chick in you, these are the jeans for you. These jeans comes with a color HUD that give you 12 pretty colors to choose from. These jeans will fit most of the mesh bodies.

The sandals I'm wearing are also from I'pitemé. They work with Slink flat feet. In the package, you will get two versions of the sandals: one with an Ankle Lock and one without. You will also get a color HUD that gives you a choice of 15 colors for both the upper part of the sandals and the straps and 4 different metals for both the ring and the buckle that all change textures independently to mix or match...endless customization.

The Dancing Girl

The tempo of the music grows
The dancing girl she spins and throws
Her vestment off with artful flair...
But oh, what's this? - oh grim despair...
Awakening brings the dream to close; 
The dancing girl gone into thin air!

Buckle Up By Flippant

Behind every Second Life Fashion item I review, there is a movie quote or song lyric floating around in my head by word association. They don't always make immediate sense to others, since you're not swimming around in my head! (Probably a very good thing, lol) 

This adorable summer bikini top and matching skirt are Flippant's new release, called Buckle Up. I immediately thought of an interesting Bette Davis quote from All About Eve, "Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy night." That is often misquoted as "....bumpy ride," by the way. Either way, I think if a gal wears this outfit, someone had definitely better buckle up because it will be a bumpy night in a good way!
Buckle Up in a complete outfit, including a Hud with four texture styles, 
the platform wedges for Slink High, and even a belly ring, for only 179Ls. 
Click the pics to enlarge for a better view.

Go check it out at Flippant's brand new store location!  See link below.
