Review: Girls Night In with 5th & Oxford, LeLutka and WTW


This past Saturday evening was ‘Girls Night In’ with Luna Jubilee (above left) and Strawberry Singh (above right). We got rid of the boys by encouraging them to organize an all night poker tourney over at Ranger‘s house. The beer would be flowing, the chips falling and the Ricky Martin tunes would be blasting enough that we wouldn’t hear from them for quite some time.

We picked up a ton of 80’s movies – Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Moonstruck, Pretty in Pink, The Princess Bride … and Strawberry insisted on Pride & Prejudice. I took the bag with the flicks from her as we left Blockbuster and stashed P&P under her passenger side seat. It’s rented on her card and I’m okay with that.

We ate cookie dough and did one anothers hair, nails and makeup during our movie marathon. Luna kept the night rowdy as the mixologist. And once all the movies were done we ordered in some live entertainment. I’ve just got to cross my fingers and pray that Ranger never notices that all the one-dollar bills are missing from our swear jar.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Hitting the Beach: Day 4 of 4 – Montego Bay

Last stop on our four-day grid-wide voyage. Strawberry and I decided to make the finale fun and celebratory. To boogie down we decided to get grassroots and natural, donning gypsy-esque beachwear before refreshing ourselves at the seaside bar and dropping booty on the beach.  In flowing wrap skirts  and dreaded locks we’ll spend the last day of our road trip drinking Red Stripe (a Shirley Temple or ginger beer for Berry, though) and listening to the dub reggae tunes blaring from the speakers at the bar with Berry using every excuse and opportunity to wiggle her booty.

Thanks for coming along!

Hitting the Beach: Day 3 of 4 – Weapon of Choice

Honey Ryder. Domino Derval. Kissy Suzuki. Rosie Carver. Anya Amasova. Jinx. Just a few of the unforgettable names that have graced the silver screen as Bond Girls – some beautiful, some deadly … all showing their curves as bathing beauties in alluring swimwear.

On day three of our beach-bound adventuring, Strawberry and I decided to give Bond Girls a run for their money. Enthusiastic about being seen in the “right” bikini with the “right” cocktail on the “right” beach, Berry and I headed out like the Monacan elite, armed with cosmopolitan gold and silver bikinis, to bring a luxurious, elemental flair to the shores.

Beautiful. Deadly. Can you hear the initial strums of our dramatic theme music?

Hitting the Beach: Day 2 of 4 – California Sun

On day two of our beach bunny road trip, Strawberry and I wanted to hit the beach in all the vintage glory of 1960s Brigitte Bardot. Before heading to the beach, we visited our favourite shops offering vintage-style products.

All dolled up, we were ready to strut along the boardwalk, scoping out the surfers and bopping to the surf pop tunes in our heads.

Hitting the Beach: Day 1 of 4 – The Tide is High

Before the final summer sunset fades, fellow adventurer, Strawberry Singh, and I decided to take a grid-wide voyage to soak up the sun while capturing Second Life’s diversity in swimwear. Whether you crave the exotic or kitschy, our community of inspired designers provides options for beaches from Anguilla to Oahu.

Today, our style destination conjures the “exotic”, fit for sauntering along stretches of sand along Calangute Beach (Goa) or Ipanema (Brazil) that host throngs of local and international tourists vying for the sun’s attention and the eye of a potential interest.
