Okinawa Summer Festival

Best Kimono IN THE WORLD

I was a little bored yesterday so I hit up Seraphim to see what if any new to me events might be worth a gander. Okinawa Summer Festival was a JACKPOT.  I love events that have things to do, things to see, fun AND shopping all in the same place. This one does not disappoint.

Water Balloon! YOYO! Both things are TRUE!

First thing I got to do was play a little game to pick a bouncy balloon thingy. WHAT IS IT? It’s like a YO YO it’s LIKE A WATER BALLOON! I could HIT people with it if I liked!  This is brilliant.

My next favorite part were these AMAZING food stalls. I just went to each one, stuffing my face ridiculously. I’m not even sorry. But isn’t festival food the best part of any event in RL? I love that they are here – plus they are for sale – I’m so tempted….


I love the eating and not gaining weight life.

The gachas are reasonably priced and fun at this event. I picked up several very fun items that were just a delight to grab. PLUS – they have an old “discontinued” gachas section where everything is at a discount. You can bet your ass I picked up a bunch of nonsense over there. 25L a pull? I NEED 10 of them. WHATEVER IT IS!

Let’s face it, I’m now an official fangirl of this event.

I don’t know what this is. But I’m gonna eat it.

How many rings is too many?

Good morning all. I’m slowly getting my morning motivation going. I’ve got to go grocery shopping, maybe see if anything is left from FLF (I forgot to go yesterday ouch), and do some house cleaning. 

I stopped over at the Notice me Senpai event and picked up this cute top in a gacha. It’s a cute event. 

What are your plans for this weekend? I feel like I need to be social. BUT WILL I? Stay tuned…

Dear Diary, I Almost Moved

Dear Diary….

Well, I almost moved yesterday. I have toyed with the idea of moving to one of the new Linden homes, I rather like the idea yet –  I’m terribly happy here on my little patch of mainland truly. Living in this snowy land with my friend Putrid as my neighbor is comforting and dozy. I keep the fires blazing and truly, I don’t have complaints.

Yet, I’m intrigued by the neighborhood concept over on Bellisaria.

I have never seen a NEW Linden neighborhood available on the Linden home list, so yesterday in a bit of leisure time I consulted the knowledge base known as Plurk and was assured that I was looking in the right place – that they just don’t show up if they are not available.  I was told to refresh aggressively and that would be my best shot at getting one when one popped up available.

Choices choices choices

I did this a few times, just for grins, when suddenly one popped up. It said to name my land and hit continue and I do confess, in a panic, I DID SO. I didn’t think about whether or not I wanted to move I was just suddenly hit with this moment of “OH NO THIS IS IT THIS IS MY CHANCE!” and hit continue.

Happy Where I Am

And then it said I had to get rid of my current 1024, or have 1024 available or something and well my friends, it was over.

I came home in a state of disappointment until I sat down again in front of my fire, in my wooden shelter surrounded by snowy mountains and I remembered “I like it here.”

My friend Luna Jubilee cam over for waffles and I realized I’m not ready to move house again, not yet.  I don’t need to move to visit and socialize – the grid is one of the few places in the world where distance isn’t a viable hindrance to anything. 

So I’ll stay put. 

I just have to figure out what to wear with these ice cream shoes I got at Gachaland. 

Happy Monday, girls.

THE HORROR

So sad that this ride is out of commission.

I was feeling a bit like getting out when I saw that Gachaland was open, and I’m a sucker for fun gacha events, so I bounced over to see what was what. Beyond just the fun of giving a pull here and there for crap I don’t need, I was excited to get to PLAY on their rather macabre themed rides.

I like to get out and DO things, and this event provided me a lot of entertainment this fine day.

I got ZERO points which is some bullshit you guys. I totally killed those Zombies!

I shot at Zombies, wished the Kissing Booth had an attendant and rode rides. I pulled the lever a few times and was delighted with what I got.  It’s kind of refreshing, not having a desperate need to have the entire set, nor having to pull 56431644 times to get the piece YOU NEED to make something an outfit.

Recommend this ride, yes I do.

I picked up this adorable dress there, although I admit I didn’t notice it was rocking the half boob which isn’t particularly my thing. It might be yours – so HALF BOOB LOVERS – rejoice!

I cannot deny that the Lucky Wheel gave me a good omen. I can always use the luck!

I’m wearing a super fun and festive hair in even MORE festive color from EXILE today. What more could a girl ask for? A carnival and a gacha event to kick off the week? PERFECTION.

Cakes and Kittens

Gonna eat this entire cake

I spent my Saturday doing a lot of nothing here in my favorite pixel world when it occurred to me – I should SURELY have a kitten box by now! SURELY! A quick area search revealed that yes indeed, the SL16B Birthday KittyCats had DONE THEIR MAGIC and made me a kitten. I baked a cake while I waited on it to hatch. 

Meet Kiva

I’m a little excited because this is the FIRST special sized KittyCat I’ve ever gotten. I’d love one of those GIANT ones (how nice to snuggle, am I right?) but this one is going to be a toy TINY little one forever it seems. That’s fine – I’m gonna probably toss it in to the inventory bin before long anyway. 

I did a wee bit of shopping earlier, grabbed this apropos tee at e.Marie – had to have it obviously.

Now I’m wondering should i get my pajamas on early and curl up for a movie ? So many choices on this chill Saturday evening. 

This new hair from Exile is so beautifully done.

Standing In Place

I found myself feeling blogger-y – compelled to stand in random places with a very serious look on my face.

I have to admit it was more than a passing fancy. I think it was the shoes. The shoes are very “I can walk in stilettos all day why can’t you?” sort of affairs. I picked them up at the Pure Poison sale, I think. Wait, no, maybe not.  The challenge of shopping TOO much is not remembering where you grabbed things. 

I’m very serious. Just look at me. Definitely got the earrings at Pure Poison though!

I’m sporting a new wig from Exile and as always, Kavar delivers amazing, natural hair. I do just love his work, I feel like his consistency is pretty ridiculous after all these years.  Talent is eternal – and we are the beneficiaries of his it would seem.

Now, I’m done being serious. Happy Sunday. Let’s make it a great week!

Not Your Grandma’s Candystriper

"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
When I see pink and white stripes, I always think of the candystriper volunteers at the local hospital. This is, of course, not anything like a candystriper would wear, not if there was any hope of staying on the job. The blouse and heels were released at the June Uber event. 
"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
The blouse is from Baiastice and comes with the bikini bra and panties and belt that can all be changed by the HUD. 
"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
I chose “One Way or Another” hair from Exile, using the built-in Lelutka hairbase. One of the fun things to do with Exile hair is to look up the song the hair is named for just to see how well it fits. 
"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
These fabulous sandals from Baiastice can be customized with the HUD. The braided vamp could be sheer or opaque and all sorts of colors or patterns. The straps and heels can also be customized.

Big Game Hunter

I spent my Saturday in the wilds of Africa, travelling from savannah to jungle and beyond, in search of lovely places to behold. I wasn’t disappointed.It’s funny how little things can delight in our little pixel world.

Elephants on the march

I slipped around this build in a comfy, breezy gift from Neve – that ever dependable creator of staple items.I was surprised that a gift came with a hud to vary up the print but it did.  That’s just classy and quality. I love creators who give away free gifts that are actually NICE. It says a lot about who they are as a person and a business owner.

These damn monkeys are following me everywhere.

In addition to this breezy summer dress, I’m wearing some perfect slip on Mary Jane’s from Ingenue called Marlo. They are a perfect addition for cute but casual days. 

This is probably supposed to be romantic

Well, I’m not having a romantic gondola ride, but I really did love being my own gondolier on this lovely water tour of the place. I love little gems like this, it was a great way to spend my afternoon. 

Now, I’m going to make a last run at the ARCADE and be at peace with what I didn’t get. What are you up to today?

Revisiting Old Friends

So lovely was the loneliness of a wild lake.
NYU Crossover Slim Tee and Mid Lace Floral Skirt

After my long absence, it has been fun to sort through clothes from old favorites. NYU has always been a favorite of mine. NyuNyu Kimono designs for us residents who don’t want to wear clubwear all the time. She has two stores. This is the older one. This is the newer one. The thing is, there are great clothes at both of them.

24 Hour Cupcake Vending

I donned my best party dress from Sascha’s Designs and hit the mean streets of SL16B – only to find it to be a festival of lag and sort of, I don’t know, the usual mainland horror. I will have to try to go back when it’s a bit less chaotic, because I do LIKE the event and there is often some amazing stuff to be found. 

This round I managed to grab my official KittyCats and truly, if I get nothing else, this is a serious tradition to me. Rotting in my inventory are the corpses of every birthday KittyCat they’ve ever made, ready to be resurrected if only I’ll pay for it.

I won’t. 

But it’s the principle of the thing, you know. I have to have them.

After pushing my way through the lag and the half nude people I decided I had to get out and find something else. So what did I find? 24 hour cupcake vending.

Not the hero we need, but the hero we deserve.
