Cooking for One

I just stick my hand right in, yes I do.

My house is finally coming together with the requisite Gidginess that is required of any place I call home. The ocean air really makes me feel like I’m home again, and I’m finally figuring out what things are going to be part of my 2020 SLife.

Even as the evening cools off, I love these big windows letting in the fresh air. Warm soup, warm tea, perfect evening.

Life in Bellisseria is quiet and lovely. Wish you were here.

I Own This Dress

Ever get that feeling of Deja Vu and you’re not sure why? I picked up this dress for free at an event because hey, free dresses are good (sometimes). I was tickled that it wasn’t fug when I got dressed for SL Blogger work and decided it would be my styling inspiration for the day.

As I stood there doing my hair and deciding on jewelry I had this nagging feeling and I wondered, hadn’t I see this before.

I definitely already owned this dress.

So, there are some things I’ve decided and these are them.

  1. I definitely owned this dress or a dress that is EERILY similar.
  2. This means the person I originally bought this from, and the person who put it out as a gift purchased a template.
  3. The person I originally made this dress might have later released it as a template.

What do I think about these things?

I think I don’t fucking care.

Here’s the thing, free gifts are one of those things that are either amazing or garbage. They’re free so you can’t really complain but none of us need new “freebie” chokers if someone could please take note of that. You wanna drop some sexytimes scripts in one and make it free you might gain kudos from a certain crowd but mostly man, nobody wants that your freebie choker.

Templates don’t burn my butter like they do some people. I’m not mad. Seriously. I’m not too good to wear a template so have at it. If I like it I’m not gonna be salty with you about what you’ve released unless it’s ugly or stupid.

Yes, I’m the one who decides if it’s stupid.

With that being said, I also want to say that some templates are garbage. Please check them out a bit before you drop them out for sale or for free.

With all of THAT being said, I’m actually really delighted with this dress. It’s very cute and sassy. I liked it the first time, I like it this time. Well done both of you who picked out this one or whatever it is that happened.

I didn’t go looking t see where I got it originally. I don’t care. I’m at peace.

Now, I need to finish my house.

Midweek Work

I chose the smaller bedroom for my own sleeping quarters in this big old house. It’s got the best views of the sea and I’ll use the bigger room for a giant closet/dressing room.

I’m off to get a bit of work done today, but I can’t wait to get home and return to decorating my new house.

It’s a Thursday but it’s a Monday but I don’t even care.

Happy whatever day it is everyone!

New Year New House

I had a great idea for my solo New Year’s Adventure. I was going to go hop on the train at Red Hook and take pics of people’s lovely Victorians and just enjoy this lovely area. I thought it was an amazing plan. Then I stood at the train station and no train came, and I couldn’t find a button to push to request the train. I was probably doing something wrong but I could NOT figure out WHAT.

I ended up giving up and getting in my car and going for a drive.

It was a great time for an early morning drive, but eventually I wound up at the end of Bellisseria and found the beach. Of course some how these lucky sods had these AMAZING beach views – just stunning. I parked and walked along the beach while the sun continued it’s dance upward. There is definitely something to be said for these Victorians on the beach.

I decided to drown my sorrows in some treats and just spend the rest of the day languishing in my own beautiful Victorian. Such sorrow, truly.

No such thing as too many macarons

I found a pretty cute grocery to stop in at. It actually had some sort of role play farmers market and vegetables with expiration dates. This is too much of a time commitment for moi. I am intrigued but no, just no.

Maybe? No, no no. No actual food that expires I cannot.

I ordered in Sushi, put on a movie and decided I was in for the night. The cats didn’t mind and truly, I crashed on the couch and didn’t have a care in the world. 2019 was good, and I’m not worked up about 2020. It will be fine. Every single year doesn’t have to be some groundbreaking event. Sometimes just making it happen is enough.

I did, however, wake up and move house.

Because – beachy Vic.

Well We HAD a Date

Cajsa and I had a date for a fancy black tie event but then she wasn’t well. I however was already dress so I decided to do a bit of wandering. I was having a stroll down memory lane – wondering if the old Moulin Rouge was still there. It’s not. There’s a new club of the same name but it’s none the same, nothing ever is.

It did however have nice people, friendly people even. That was what I loved so much about the old one, gone now for so many years. All the fun with our friends – I wonder where they’ve all scattered to?

At Home Again, Naturally

The Tree is up – the harpsichord is playing a lovely sarabande and I’m really settling in to my new place. It’s brand new – no one ever lived in it before me – kind of a fun idea. I lived over at Meadowbrook and I’m sure it had previous tenants – it had that noob smell. But these Victorians are fresh off the griddle. I’m liking this huge space and beautifully landscaped parks and streets.

What I’d like to see next are towns, make us a little market, a little church and a post office. Complete the narrative of these little neighborhoods with beautifully curated places for us.

What do you think should be next? Mass transit? Little villages? What would help complete the narrative of our communities for YOU?

My second night in my home finds me not sleeping on the sofa but comfy in the bed of the moment, I might have to get out something else. I’ve got too many beds, I’m not sure which one I want to use.

For now, I’m content.

Winter Wonderland

The Weather Outside is Frightful

I’m wandering around doing holiday things today. I found a sweet little sim with most of the things for sale. sure, they’re older and the prim count is higher on some of them but it’s still super fun.

I may go back and buy the carousel. I don’t know. Does this fit with my victorian themed house? I don’t wanna be THAT neighbor but still- CAROUSEL!

Have you done your holiday shopping? Are you ready? I am NOT. Don’t even have stockings up yet. I’m ridiculous. I just moved though is it even my fault? I don’t think so.

The snow was fun but the place was so laggy it just rezzed and unrezzed super fast. So fun but eh. Too much going on, too many scripts. YET – super fun.

With this…I’m off to finish unpacking my things. I hate setting up house!

Gidge Goes Victorian

My Water Feature

I was feeling a bit adventurous and rolled the dice on getting one of the new Victorian Homes. Despite the fact that this moved me away from Cajsa – their siren song was just too compelling. My first try I got a lovely spot next to this beautiful water feature.

I have no complaints.

Of course I only had to ride my bike a short way to find people immediately ruining the beautifully curated garden landscape.

I was too dumfounded to let the paving stones rez. What the hell is that? What are you doing?

I get it if you wanna have a vehicle. At least have the sense to put it behind your house.

My friend Gogolita is the decor police – I may have to join her in this endeavor. These are so well done, it’s just tragic if people can’t maintain the look really. How hard is it not to put out crap that doesn’t match?

I’m giving these guys a pass, they might be trying to decide what they like.

Have you made the jump to the Linden Victorians? This is the time – get yours now and let’s make a community! I will put some coffee on and you can come over any time! I promise!

Christmas Times Approach

Kicking off the week and apparently I’ve got the thing happening where a line shows up in my pics. Look my poor little shadow was decapitated by it. Sad. It’s been so long since I saw that I forget the dang solution.

I’ll remember it at some point.

I hope your week was amazing and that your Monday is tolerable.

How Did You Spend Your Saturday

It’s always the little feet that get me

Well I turned in to an elf, not sure how that happened. Sasy said “go try out the SLINK Elf Ears” and now i’m an elf. Will I stay one? Who even knows? Maybe I’m transitioning in to a new SL and this is how it starts. It’s difficult to say.

My evening was quiet, the typist was in bed relaxing and surfing her social media whilst the cat here napped and I was relaxing in the living room and doing the same. My friend Gogo pointed out a limited edition shirt that was available on Marketplace and well then I had to have that. It was a perfect combo for my new pants I picked up on the lucky boards at Sn@tch.

Of course once I’m shopping I’m not likely to stay calm, so I ducked out for some winter adventure, even just a little one, at a silly little winter SIM I found.

Sleigh Ride, Aurora Borealis, What More Could a Girl Ask For?

It was worth it to get up, just to see the lights, take the ride, and grab the shirt.

Free Gift Rings and eyes from SaNaRae

Bakes on Mesh has me pulling out skins I thought were lost to me forever, like this one from MotherGoose.

Everything old is new again.

You wanna grab a fun shirt? They are here.

Now, I hope you haven’t spent all your tier on Black Friday says. Girl, you gotta have somewhere to live!
