Settled In

Well made myself a proper breakfast and have my plans for today. I like to spend Sundays in some combination of busy fun and relaxation. It’s a perfect day for baking and relaxing – which I’ve already started while I eat my delicious breakfast.

What do you like to bake as fall moves in? I’m a traditionalist, at the first hint of cool air I’m ready for apple everything and the pumpkin spice.

Maybe that makes me basic. I could not possibly care. Not even if you paid me. Well, I might PRETEND to care if you paid me.  Continue reading

On Sunset

End of my holiday weekend winds down and finds me back at home on Juicy. I’m not sad though. I’ve been unpacking – slowly but surely. It’s kind of cathartic to reinvent my SLife in a new place again, even if that place is in fact an old place.

I slipped into some new lingerie that you can find at The Arcade. It’s perfect for a cozy evening in, alone or perhaps with someone special.  I personally still pine for my love who abandoned me for the glories of Azeroth. Maybe he’ll return someday. He’s the sexiest little robot in all the land. Continue reading

Adventures In An Off Road Coupe

With no real destination in mind I got behind the wheel at sunset and decided to travel off the beaten path. I just needed to get somewhere I hadn’t been, somewhere to be a silent version of me for a day perhaps, one where I could reflect and think alone.

I have a new car, so what better time to go exploring?

I knew I was in the right place when I came into a clearing and found the giant Buddha transmitting peace and calm to me. This was where I was going to stay tonight.  Continue reading

Dracarys Macaron

Two of my favorite things, macarons and the ability to set people on fire, are both available at the up coming round of The Arcade. I have to admit you would probably only get a wee bit singed by my friend here yet, I can dream.

The hat and purse are two of my favorites for this round. You can get the purse in rigged or unrigged versions which is helpful for you who have need of one vs. the other. It’s so cute, I would totally carry this purse in RL. 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. 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

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
