September 2nd, 2020

Hello there! It’s finally September, children are back at school, and I’m ready for all the lovely Autumn soft and cozy clothes. I’m this close to pumpkin-spicing everything!

How cute is this outfit from RKKN ? It’s really well made, and comes in a bunch of lovely tones and various options. I have a thing for suspenders, too, so this was perfect for me!

August 30th, 2020 – Fairy tale

Once upon a time, I was a fae. I would roam the lands of a fantasy role play sim, wearing beautiful gowns and wings. But then sad things happened, I lost the love of my Slife, and left a land that no longer felt like home. I sometimes still miss the simple joy of fly-dancing with my beloved around the drum circle, surrounded by my best friends, Shay the fae, Maelenn the avariel, Eithne the dryad and Richy the dragon. So when I spotted the wings from Decoy at Collabor 88, it felt like a blast from the past, and I just had to put together an outfit with The Secret Store’s latest cutie, and find a whimsical place to take a picture.

Since I got my Lelutka Nova head, I’ve been wearing the same skin, as it was the only one I demoed that felt like me. Well I finally found another one, but, oh well, it’s yet again a skin from Lara Hurley. What can I say, her work is amazing.
I’d also like to tell you about a store I discovered not long ago, Simple Bloom. If you’re not satisfied with your eyebrows, or if you want to try something different, and get a unique look, go visit their store, they have hundreds of different eyebrows, mostly BOM, and they are extremely well made.

August 28th, 2020. A pink day

Oh hi! Today I didn’t go to work because of what I thought was a sciatica. Turns out it’s a tendonitis in my buttock. Yes, you may laugh, and no, I don’t know how I did that. Anyway, since I had a little time at home on my own, I managed to put together an outfit and take a few pictures.

I went to Uber and grabbed a few of the gifts that each store has, as it’s a birthday round. These lovely glasses were one of them. So were the adorable fairy lights in the picture below. I also grabbed (not a gift but worth it) another set of gorgeous rings from Yummy, and the matching nails from Nylon Outfitters.

Midweek Hurdle

We did it. We got past the midweek hurdle. Personally it was a struggle but I am struggling in general to ever get anything done these days. The ennui or laziness that seems to own me is pervasive. I’m trying to fight it but, the struggle is real.

I probably just need to go shopping.

Shopping fixes everything, right?

Domestic Goddess

I’m feeling domestic this Monday evening so despite being overdressed for it, I’m doing a bit of baking in my extremely silly kitchen. I swear I’m going to put in a proper kitchen at some point but this one makes me giggle and thus, for now it stays.

How was your Monday? Mine was pretty great, despite the fact that I’m still vexed that I didn’t get the chair that matches my desk and it’s not out at the mainstore yet.

Some day. Until then, I’ll just eat these pies.

Monday Got Me Like…

I didn’t start off my day planning to be a lazy Monday, but I think my relaxing weekend was too relaxing. I couldn’t get myself motivated AT ALL so then, I just decided to do some day drinking.

Luckily, my favorite bar tender was on duty.

Back off Ladies and Gents, he’s MINE!

With Boots on hand to serve up the strongest drinks on the grid, I was assured of a perfect day drinking experience.

It was a Monday Martini kind of day, I thought, and truly, alliteration in your cocktail choices is a sign of civilization isn’t it? I think so.

Rainbow Rooms is a perfect spot for cocktails, day or night. Now, I think I need a nap.

Bringing The Weekend Home

Did Putrid specifically get the baby pool out for me? I’ll never know, but I have to say I spent a lot of time getting wrinkled fingers in it this weekend. It’s a perfect size for a party of 1!

Lake swimming isn’t always my favorite but I have to say, these waters are gorgeous. The linden trailers are so cute, especially lake or river side.

Alas, I’ve got to go home and get back to my regularly scheduled SLife.

See you tomorrow girls!

Weekend at Hooten Holler

I decided to get away from home for the weekend. I’m lakeside at my friend Putrid’s Linden Trailer. I’m planning to relax and unplug for a few days before I return to my equally relaxing life at The Elms.

My hair today is SOLELY the fault of Sydd Sinister who posted these on Facebook and I was ridiculously intrigued by this very silly Spongebob and Patrick inspired hair. There’s probably a bit of copyright infringement in the hair-sticks.

Cooking out on the grill never feels like cooking. It’s just heat and flame and magical delicious meat. I should start cooking out every day at home. It was a perfect lakeside afternoon for it.

Putrid was kind enough to add me to her TV so after I feast on this I’m gonna stretch out inside for a post dinner nap with a murder show on the TV.

It’s a pretty good Saturday night on the grid. Hope yours is the same.

Sunset at Rainbow Reef

It’s been a while since I had somewhere regular to go, and my friend Muff’s RAINBOW REEF beach side bar was just the thing a few days ago. I don’t need to be coerced to buy swimwear. And – I don’t need shoes. This might just be the relaxing zone of my dreams.

My friend Putrid was hanging out and as I love her more than my luggage I ran over to consume ridiculous booze and chill with her. She was being decorative, as per her norm, if somewhat sloppy with her booze. My goodness woman don’t spill!

Your evening can be mellow and chill with good drinks at Rainbow Reef. But man do us all a favor, if you need to do some weird lesbian incest roleplay, keep that in your privates. NOBODY IN LOCAL WANTS TO HEAR ALL THAT.

32 Chocolat

I headed over to Nutmeg to do a little shopping and wandered around the property a while. I found this trolley that has seen better days and and errant moon.

I’m wandering the grid today in search of the chair that matches my new desk and it’s apparently not out at the main store and this is my fault for not having bought it when I bought the desk. Why did I think that my 10454050 desk chairs I already own would work? Why? Because I was being cheap that’s why.

So now I must buy the chair not only because it matches but also because it matches.

I tried on one of Exile’s lovely short styles so I could show off my silly bear earrings I picked up at the SL17B birthday bash.

Brunette Gidge is liking the change. Maybe Brunette for a while? Hard to say. Gidge does like change.

Except when she doesn’t.
