A Day At The Beach

I’m fortunate enough to live about 20 mins away from the beach. I don’t visit it as much as I would like to, and I have no excuses really, but every time I go I just feel at home. You could put me in a shack and as long as I could see the ocean from it, I would be happy.  Unfortunately even shacks on the beach are out of my price range but luckily in SL for just pennies a day I can get a great view of the ocean from my very own trailer park.

Cherry Cool Aid

I have some friends who lived in Okinawa  a few years ago and they always posted the most beautiful pictures. I will probably never have the pleasure of visiting there myself ,but that doesn’t mean I can’t pretend to visit there in SL. I was busy exploring profiles and tping to different shops I’d never heard of, in this case mostly Japanese stores, last night; I ended up running into the Okinawa Festival.  I was thrilled. So many cute clothes, and gachas and lucky boards. All a dork like me could hope for! Here are some goodies I got.

My Favorite Hair Fair Bandanas (plus a few I made)

Once a year, us non-creators are challenged to toss our bandanas in the ring along with other creators such as Lelutka, TuttiFruti, MiaMai and others. For me, it’s always a fresh reminder of why I am not a creator, but I manage to pull something out my hat (or bandana).

Hair Fair Long Hair Part One

A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.

You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.

It All Comes Together at Relay Weekend

rfl-2014

There have been Relay for Life fundraising events going on for several months now and they will all come together in the annual culmination of Relay season with Relay Weekend. Relay Weekend kicks off with an Opening Ceremony at 10 A.M. SLT on the 19th and continues for 24 hours as folks walk the 40 sim track. The walk continues for 24 hours because cancer never sleeps and neither can the efforts to prevent, treat and cure cancer.

Fashion For Life has a campsite along the Relay track. Grace Loudon who brilliantly organized the Fashion For Life builds created this build while also heading the team of builders and build organizers for the forty sims for this weekend. With bolts of fabric, dressmaker forms, scissors, thread and other sewing notions, this build emphasizes the FASHION in Fashion For Life.  Continue reading

Pipe Down Hoodlums!

I smoked for a very long time, started out casually around the age 17 and by the time I was 30 I was up to 2 packs a day. In April of 2009 I quit cold turkey and never looked back, it was a great decision.  LUCKILY, lung problems and cancer isn’t an issue in my 2nd life so my avatar can live dangerously…and she does from time to time. She also has a smoke every now and then and this new clay pipe found at this round of Genre is need I say…smokin!

It comes with a nice hud. You can choose how often you want to puff, you can let it know if you want to blow smoke out of your nose, your mouth, your nose and mouth, or blow out smoke rings. I like rings.  You can also choose whether you want the tobacco to fire up red or not and if you have show local lights clicked you can see your face light up as you take a toke. Good times.
