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.

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

What’s Your Poison At The Arcade?

I have a troubling problem. I am addicted to the sweets that are created in SL. Maybe it’s not just because I love them in real life, but the more beautiful they are the more likely it is must have them.

The ARCADE is a breeding ground for such creations and I have to admit, I love them for it. Wedding cake? I don’t need a wedding. I’ve got a cake. I’d rather have the cake, frankly.

The Arcade, that bastion of goodness you didn’t know you needed, is closing tomorrow at midnight. All the lovely things will go away and you’ll have to wait three months.

I on the other hand will be stuffing my face like a monster with these sweets.

It’s not too late!

Get over there before they are gone!

Dreams of Babies

Flo and I are wrapping up our Christmas eve with some end of day writing in my journal,  and thinking thoughts. I am thinking about how lucky I am to have all of you, and of all the people who aren’t here any more whom I miss.

But eventually I had to get some sleep. So much to do tomorrow! Continue reading

Purritos for You and Purritos for Me

One of my favorite little fun things from The Arcade this round are the sweet little Purritos, baby kittens wrapped up for you to love. I couldn’t resist giving this one some much deserved love and attention today as I get ready for the big day tomorrow. Continue reading

I’m Still Standing

Despite their sharp stiletto, standing is pretty easy peasy in these new heels from BREATHE which you can pick up for your holiday fun at THE ARCADE! I popped over to get some holiday gifts and was delighted that despite there still being a crowd, I could get around quite quickly and get my shopping done.

I love when you can get in and it’s not completely crazy town at events. You get all the fun and none of the crazy bonking into people!

I did Luxebox this month because Poppy has a dress in it and – what do you know it’s the GIDGE dress! It was a must have for me and I think you’ll like it too if you get the box. It’s so cute and has perfect colors for any time but I had to go with holiday colors.  Continue reading

Ridiculously Ready for Christmas

I love Christmas. I love all of the events that pop up AROUND Christmas which then enable me to festoon, YES FESTOON my house with joy and love. I live here quietly with my pets and my little baby that sometimes I get out for fun, and honestly it’s a good SL.

It’s my quiet place and my happy place and truly it’s a good SL. Continue reading

Wintering Wandering

I went wandering in search of winter and holiday fun yesterday. I found a lovely sim – really a bit of a bloggers paradise in terms of great little spots to shoot. It’s also a great little spot just to be with tons of great little winter activities scattered throughout.

I stopped by the Christmas tree lot and wished I had considered a real tree for my own home. Hmmm, do I have room for another tree? I wonder…nah. I really don’t. But it’s fun to consider for sure.

I wandered and enjoyed the scenery for quite a while, enjoying a holiday coffee and just soaking in how beautiful SL can be some days.  It’s too bad you can’t smell the things here – I know how crisp this snowy landscape would smell, and the way the sounds would all be hushed by the deep layers of white fluff. I missed that, I’m glad winter has returned.

Today I’m wearing part of the amazing winter set from Osmia for The Arcade. I feel like this creator must have a strong love of winter adventures given how lovely the entire set is. It’s designed for a winter wander and fun in snowy, cold climate. I love it. Continue reading

I’m Ready for Christmas Now

Well that’s it the Arcade is open and there go all your lindens. I personally am pretty excited – I love this round, and now I’m flinging Christmas joy everywhere!!! My house is soon going to be a holiday wonderland.

More things to enhance the wonder that is my SL? Bring them on.
