I Found Ice Cream

Over at Rainbow Reef – the best beach in SL – I discovered an Ice Cream truck today and quite frankly I couldn’t be ANY happier. I’m a glutton, I’m not even sorry. I’ll traverse the scariest of builds to eat new or pretty foods and frankly – this one is a pretty treat in a beautiful place. Double win.

I picked up a cute new bikini at the Saturday Sale this morning so I’m feeling pretty set for my Saturday. Grabbed this hair from MINA too.

I’ve got some gorgeous new makeup from RazzaNova from her Party Style Collection. Really gorgeous, rich colors for a night out or – a day at the beach. Whatever your pleasure.

If you feel like getting out of your house or off your platform – tomorrow is brunch at Rainbow Reef at 10 am SLT!

The Return of Blueblood

My beloved cousin Ghanima Uriza messaged me the other day after a long absence. She has started to dip her toe into the world of mesh and I guess I had not realized how long she’d been gone – the pixel world has changed so much since the last time we were able to chat.

She’s back at work creating her beautifully hand-painted textures that were the HALLMARK of Blueblood back in the heyday. I am so excited to get to share a little something she’s been working on.

It was so lovely to chat with her, to talk about our lives and how we are both in such a different place how with regards to how we embrace Grid Life. Neither of us are willing to allow it to run us anymore, instead we are excited to get to participate in the things we love on our own terms. For me it’s blogging, for her it’s creating.

I have to say, I’m excited to have another Uriza cousin back on the grid. We’re a rare breed.

The Real Valentine’s Day – the Galentines

We ran the gauntlet at Shop and Hop for Valentine’s and it was a smashing success. In fact, most of what we’re wearing is from there, plus our treats. We even snagged a boat and I have to admit, we had more than a bit of fun cruising today.

Sorry if you’re one of the beachside houses we crashed into. We had a bit of a learning curve on our driving.

Seriously though, a fully functional houseboat was a super fun thing to give away. We ate lunch out on the water and just generally relaxed the day away. It comes fully set up with a bedroom and kitchen. It does live up to it’s name of LOVE BOAT though so bring your own poses if you’re chilling with a pal like we are.

Perfect Galentine’s dinner from WHAT NEXT

What Next had pizza as their free gift at Shop n Hop and I couldn’t resist this latte set which was also on sale. Truthfully it was a perfect dinner combo for us – who could ask for anything more?

The Secret Life of Females

As you may have guessed, all women secretly lay about in lingerie nonstop when men aren’t around. We can’t help it, this is our preferred state. The more lacy and see through the better we like it.

We discuss the meaning of life, whether or not we need to fart and what sort of thing we might want for dinner – all while clad in slinky sweet nothings.

Aliana and I are both reclining in lovely pieces from the Alaska Metro/Free Dove Hunt. 10 items are available, five at Free Dove and five at her mainstore. All five are awesome and you need them. Trust us.

It’s a peaceful, genteel life that we lead. I highly recommend it.

BRB – someone on the internet was wrong…

The Alaska Metro Free Dove Hunt

Alaska Metro has a new hunt out and there are five items at her main shop and five over at YE OLD Free Dove. I was so excited for a chance to do a fun hunt for pretty things, it’s been a while since I have run the gauntlet on one.

They are SO easy to find, just a bit of looking will suss them all out.

Just in time for that upcoming red and pink holiday, eh?

Time For The Superb Owl

We’re ready for football kick off today. After all it’s time for the Superbowl this evening and that calls for food and booze in excess. It’s always this time of year that you get the people who like to tell you about how they’re above watching the Superbowl and like to put it down with little snarks about “the sports ball game” or whatever.

We get it. You don’t like football.

The thing is, shitting on things people enjoy doesn’t make you cool. You aren’t edgy or interesting because you don’t like a thing that a lot of other people like. I don’t like a lot of things that other people think are great. You know what – great for them! Glad they enjoy it. I don’t go online to make a point about how I don’t like the thing.

It’s tiresome. We get it. You’re so above it all.

I do think the Superb Owl is a bit funny though. So this isn’t a total rant.

I’m sure whomever is selling these tees on marketplace paid the NFL right? I mean, logo infringement and all.

If you’re buying these – get the black one. The white one is made like crap. They’re the same price.

What the Goat ?

I was asleep. I know it’s early for a Friday but it was a bitch of a Friday, I was done. I just wanted to sleep and kick off the weekend tomorrow. I just needed a break. I wanted sleep and oblivion.

It was then I heard it. I heard that bleet, this sound – I could not figure it out. I laid there and tried to ignore it. But eventually I couldn’t and had to get up to figure out what was happening.

SHE BROUGHT HOME A GOAT.

OH MY GOD.

I don’t even know what to say.

I do NOT approve.

Living with Alts is rough ya’ll.

Aliana doesn’t think she did anything wrong. She lives here too!

The goat situation is going to have to be figured out when I’m not so tired.

Having roommates is hard ya’ll.

Alt Life

Well, it’s finally happened. I decided to get my ALT a body and well now she’s got a decent head and a decent body, I should probably let her move in. I mean, I’m accustomed to my solitary space anymore, but there is something nice about having someone who appreciates my new wine fridge.

Excuse me, OUR new wine fridge.

We decided to cook out. I picked up this ridiculously cute new table at SOY. But the toll of the week being so busy already has the both of us worn out.

After all, she’s had to go shopping to get some less ridiculous clothes. That’s a lot of work. God bless her, I never buy her anything. But now at least she looks “less” nuts. So I’m not completely ashamed to be seen with her.

I picked up a new lounger at Chez Moi (thank you for the suggestion Sparklies!) and they are perfect for a Victorian themed house. They were a perfect spot to listen to the waves and just relax this evening.

I always remember what I learned from Auntie Mame – enough is as good as a feast.

This lovely little spot in the world is enough. I am so happy to be here.

Mondays on Bellisseria

I love foggy seaside days on Bellisseria. There’s a lovely peace over here, and whether I’m reading, writing or playing a game I have to admit that this is my favorite place to unwind. There is something so relaxing here, and if I need something different, the entire grid is just a TP away.

Now as a blogger, some people might say that I shouldn’t post this pic. There are intersections where the shirt and the pants clip one another. Well guess what folks, when you wear stuff – sometimes this happens. That’s part of wearing CLOTHES in pixel land. My pants are still cute, my shirt is still cute.

I’d rather show you what it looks like in life – I’m so much more invested in my happy little Gidge life lately, rather than worry about perfection.

Happy is…just loving your SL for what it is.

Happy also might be having an adorable pink car for a seaside drive.

Woodland Wander

I have coveted this dress from the Alaska Metro lucky chair for weeks. I stop by there almost every log in just to take a peak to see if I’m lucky. Finally the other day, IT WAS A G!

You never saw anyone flip on their group tag and sit down so fast in your life.

It didn’t disappoint when I got it on, with it’s whispy chiffon shoulders and gorgeous embroidered flower textures. I decided to take it on a nature walk and found a lovely little spot in the Destination Guide. It’s called Timberline Lodge and I recommend ambling through the woods to see what you can find.

Happy Sunday lovelies!
