Unicorns and Baby Pools

Sophie has returned from Auntie Inventory and I confess I’m a bit happy to have her home.

Let’s face it, it widens my shopping opportunities immensely now doesn’t it?

I was feeling like a bit of a pool lounge today because after I picked up the cute pumps that were out for FLF I found THESE and well my first thought was “These are the pool shoes you’ve been dreaming of Gidge, make them yours.”

And here we are. Continue reading

Summer’s The Thing

Well I couldn’t resist taking some snaps as I wandered around SUMMERFEST this year. The layout is just adorable, with sweet vignettes set up and so while I wandered, shopped and ate my cotton candy I just couldn’t not contain my enthusiasm.

Is there ever an event that you always truly enjoy, yet struggle to remember? That’s me with Summerfest. It’s a nice layout, always lovely items and just a fantastic shopping experience but for some reason despite the fact that I’m thrilled when it arrives – more often than not it closes and there I sit, forlorn at having forgotten to go.

Start With Some Fruit

I’m trying to be healthier. I tend to be just so terribly lazy so I thought to myself, SELF, get up, get dressed in something cute and have some delicious fruit for breakfast. JUST DO IT. Get yourself organized and get some stuff done. Continue reading

Dance Dance Revolution – Vintage Style

Adam & Eve have released some lovely new pretties for VINTAGE FAIR and I had to hit the town in this beautiful dress made JUST for dancing. The swirl of the skirt and lovely fabrics have my swooshing around the grid in glee.

Truly, only of my favorite creatures is the party dress and this one is extraordinary. Continue reading

Shut Up and Drive

I had to have the PINK Convertible from Consignment at THE ARCADE this month and as a result, my friends got cars. YAY for my friends right? But I DID end up with the pink eventually which is really all that matters.

I should get a garage for it, don’t you think? Continue reading

After the Doom

I come in to the settlements to get news or when it’s barter time, just to make an appearance.  It’s important not to be forgotten out here. Not that anyone would be likely to be helpful if there was help that was needed. It’s more about position, about who you are in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t barter.

I take what I want and everyone can just like it or not.  Mostly, I don’t take anything. No need to create friction, unless I just feel like having a fight. Mostly I don’t.

I come in to the main settlement every few weeks and wander around the perimeter. You never know what you’re going to find in the settlements, newcomers, oldbies with an axe to grind that’s as old as glitchpants, or calm. I am not here for trouble, just to learn what’s new, and to remind them I’m here.

I’m always here.  Continue reading

Last Day of Vacation Blues

I ordered room service last night and fell asleep without eating it. Nice, right? Luckily my all inclusive resort includes meals brought in, so I know there will be something waiting for me downstairs. I’ve missed breakfast though. This rainy weather just tells me to sleep and sleep, so I did.

Yes, it’s definitely lunch time.

I wonder how many people they think are here? Anyone want to come help me eat all this?

It’s a perfect day to relax and do a lot of nothing. I’ve got a good book and some delicious treats. I might even get some post cards sent out – like a proper vacationing adult might.  Continue reading

Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so.

Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. Continue reading

Magical Forests and Comfortable Boots

I decided to take a hike for my Saturday afternoon activity. CAN YOU BELIEVE that in an inventory of ALMOST 140k items I don’t own one single item called “hiking boots”?  I, like you dear reader, am incredulous of this fact yet here we are. I didn’t own a pair and since I was off on vacation and CLEARLY can’t just teleport to a shop to pick up a pair I had to make due with what I had in my suitcase inventory.

Luckily I had JUST thing thing from ISON – perfectly suited to protect my feet from nymphs or sprites or bugs or whatever it was that is currently inhabiting this place I’m staying for the weekend. Continue reading
