Life Gets In The Way

Life has been hectic, chaos even but this Saturday evening I’m spending quality time stalking the Lucky Chairs at Alaska Metro. It’s the fault of Kitty over at Kittywichin and so you see i’m not to be blamed. I nabbed this cute skirt almost immediately and now I’m stuck here waiting for the next cool thing.

What’s a girl to do anyway?

I’ve slapped on a new SLINK Visage head and I just have to say, there’s an odd comfort in not even worrying about what something looks like. I guess that’s just decades of quality work built up. I’m not sure it’s Gidge’s face yet but I new it would be pretty and it is. I have to try on others and decide who will be Gidge. It’s anyone’s guess.

SL Is a Community

I'm Back? I Never Went Away
Ingenue’s Lisette dress comes in more colors than the rainbow. This is melon. I added Izzie’s Sheer Tights, one of the best investments ever.

I am always fascinated by how people think of and describe Second Life. Some people say it’s a game and some say a virtual form of social media. I think of it as a community center with infinite rooms for infinite communities to grow and develop. It’s like yeast, fermenting creativity and community.

Pumpkin Time Arrives

Pumpkins from Sway’s

I’m so excited that fall is finally here. Sway’s offers up gorgeous pumpkin offerings for your fall decorating.

I had been wanting something a little different for pumpkins this year. I am hoping we have a lot of fun Halloween decor on the Gangway. Do you suppose we will? I still haven’t met any neighbors. Maybe my whimsical pumpkins will attract some!

I hope I don’t go too overboard this year. I think I did too much last year. I’ll try not to add the shrieking banshee. Try. It’s a while till Halloween though, no promises.

This hair from Exile is a fun surprise from the back. So pretty.

Well I’m definitely not done, but this is some serious progress, I have to say.

October is coming! I am ready!

Happy little Linden home.

Shopping and Refrigerator Management

On a Mission

I awoke with one mission, SOLVE this fridge issue. My fridge is ridiculous. I mean I even have more than one but I don’t love most of them. I love the stupid giant one because it’s fun but really, it’s too tall so I needed to find something else.

ALSO, I needed groceries. And a shirt.

MAGIC

Somehow I managed to get a rare Fridge from Ariskea at the Epiphany. I LOVE the lemon yellow print which is it’s THING but I’d have to redo my whole house if I suddenly wanted lemon yellow walls in the house so eh. I’m just thrilled it has a pink option, honestly. How considerate!

I might be decorating early

I confess I also put up some lights that one might construe as Halloween Lights. Perhaps they are just lights of happiness. You don’t know.

Cool breeze from the sea blows in….

I’ve got a good book and a mug of hot chocolate to encourage me to slumber. Is it a perfect Saturday? Entirely possible.

How was your day? I hope it was full of happiness.

Giant Refrigerators of Doom

I have a weird assortment of food. 

Did you ever not notice something and then suddenly you’re like WHAT THE EFF ?

That’s me this morning. Why is my refrigerator GIANT? I’ve been a pretty tall pixel girl my whole SLife. I’m not glamazon “I AM A MODEL” tall, but I’m not a shorty.

Yet suddenly I realize I can’t see in to my own freezer! And this is where the ice cream is, so this is a real tragedy.

But where there is a will, there is a way…

Mermaid Ice Cream for Breakfast

I mean, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even if you have to climb up your fridge like a spider monkey to get it!

Little Pink and Purple Houses

There’s No Place Like Home

I’m slowly getting settled here on the Gangway and I have to admit, I’m more than a bit tickled to be able to paint my walls and outside of my house at a simple touch. POOF new color. How much does that amaze me? And why hasn’t everyone been doing this with their houses forever? Now make it so I can paint each wall individually and I’ll be happy.

I’ve been trying to wrap my mind around Tuesday things all morning, and then I realized – It’s Wednesday! 

Pink Car, Purple House, Perfect World

Wednesday of course means I should wander and find something new. I hopped in my most perfectly Gidgey car and hit the road. I’ll go find a cafe, grab some coffee and pastry and set off to see what’s out there in the world that’s good today. Sounds like a plan, doesn’t it?

Blue skies, nothing but blue skies….

Living Large on the Gangway

I’m your trashy neighbor, sorry.

Well it happened, with a lot of help and encouragement from my friend Gogolita I managed to get a spot on Bellisaria on the newly opened Gangway. Fate would have it that Cajsa has a houseboat right in front of my house, which is backed by a park behind me and a lovely stretch of road in front. 

It’s a nice little suburban wonderland really. 

SO you know I just had to get all crazy trashy with A GIANT HELLO KITTY SLIDE. It’s not my fault, I had to. At least for a little while

Hair Fair Is Over, Thank Goodness I at least shopped.

Cajsa managed to get off the Hair Fair press releases this year, as I was completely swamped. But I did manage to get over and do my part shopping that awesome event, I picked up several new hairs and felt warm and fuzzy when they were really contributing to Wigs for Kids. Hair Fair is such an amazing event – I hope you went.

Happy Here

This little home may be my home base for a while. Pity my neighbors i’m about to decorate for Halloween!

Race to Hair Fair Before It Closes September 1st!

When choosing a skin we look for something reflecting our personality, but when we select hair we want something that reflects our mood. I am confident that many SL fashionistas have as many hairstyles in their Second closet as they have clothes. That is why Hair Fair is one of the most successful fundraising events in Second Life. 

The fourteenth annual Hair Fair 2019 runs from August 17th through September 1st and will be raising funds for “Wigs for Kids” Wigs for Kids is a relatively small organization with a very focused mission–to provide wigs for children who have lost hair due to cancer chemotherapy, alopecia, or other medical reasons. These are custom-fitted wigs made so kids can play and Iive their lives without fear of bullying and being ostracized because of illness. Hair Fair makes a significant difference in the lives of many children. 

One of the favorite elements of Hair Fair is Bandana Day when everyone is encouraged to take off their hair and wear a bandana to express their solidarity with those who lost their hair for medical reasons. Anyone and everyone was encouraged before Hair Fair to download a Bandana Day Kit and make their own bandanas. Thanks to the easy kit and instructions, even the noobiest noob could contribute their own designs to help raise money for kids. This makes Hair Fair unique in allowing anyone to participate as a creator and give with their hands, not just their wallets. 

Of course, in the end, for many it is about the hair and that there is in abundance with three sims full of stores and three cam shopping sims adjacent. You are encouraged to join the Hair Fair Demo group so you can get all the demos and try them on at home or host a demo party for you and your friends. To join the demo group, just copy-paste below into open chat in Second Life to join the FREE GROUP. Never pay to join any groups claiming to be part of Hair Fair!

To make shopping even easier, Hair Fair SL has a guide posted on their blog at https://hairfair.wordpress.com/

So run, don’t walk, to Hair Fair and find hair for your every mood and smile knowing that every purchase you make contributes to making a child’s life easier and fuller.
