I wandered out for the weekend, was compelled to just be alone and breathe for a while in the crisp winter of deep December. Swayland seemed the perfect spot for my endeavor, so I set up camp here to just spend the night away from comforts and re-energize.
There’s a lot to be said for cooking over the fire. Is it just that the food seems more real, or that the work you put into it makes it taste better? I don’t now why but somehow everything I cook over a fire is better, even marshmallows.
Tomorrow i’ll pack up and go home, refreshed and renewed from my camping adventure. But tonight, I’ll sleep bundled up in the crisp cold air, and remind myself how much I do love this.

You might be thinking that I forget to get my sweet monkey faced baby out and take her trick or treating but you’d be wrong. Now, if you questioned WHERE I took her trick or treating, you’d be more on target, this is for sure. I just did the usual search for Halloween stuff and well, I don’t now. This place seems SUPER intense to me. Continue reading →
I have to confess I’m an addict for fall. While the heat in the RL stays in the 90s my SL turns into a pumpkin colored wonderland at the first hint of autumn. The SALEM event kicked off and that has to mean it’s fall doesn’t it? I’m positive it means that. I’m sporting new lips and eye BLACK MAGIC makeup from ALASKA METRO that you can pick up at SALEM.
I’m doing a bit of urban shopping today in a sharp suit from Baiastice and my favorite HAT HAIR from Hair Fair this year. Every year I declare a BEST HAT HAIR at Hair Fair and honestly – THIS IS IT FOR ME. SO CUTE. Perfect for the breezy city streets while I look for the next bargain! Continue reading →
After leaving the islands where Cajsa and I were so happy for several years, I’ve returned to a spot on one of what was always my favorite places….Juicy.
It’s a tropical paradise you see, and just the sort of escape I can use from time to time. There’s room here for both Cajsa and I to enjoy the surf and relaxation of a well kept sim, as well as beautiful shops at our fingertips. It’s a bloggers’ dream really.
I’ve got a bit unpacked, but I found a record player and I am afraid I indulged in a bit of fun for a while rather than working.
I’ve got to find a spot to rezz all my old house so I can drag out the things I can’t get unpacked.
I ordered room service last night and fell asleep without eating it. Nice, right? Luckily my all inclusive resort includes meals brought in, so I know there will be something waiting for me downstairs. I’ve missed breakfast though. This rainy weather just tells me to sleep and sleep, so I did.
Yes, it’s definitely lunch time.
I wonder how many people they think are here? Anyone want to come help me eat all this?
It’s a perfect day to relax and do a lot of nothing. I’ve got a good book and some delicious treats. I might even get some post cards sent out – like a proper vacationing adult might. Continue reading →
One of the things I love about The Arcade is it’s ever continuing magic when it comes to providing us with more things for the narrative of our individual SLs.
For me, that narrative is chocked full of…..pets.
My friend and fellow blogger visited the other day and said if it was a RL house it would smell, it was so full of pets. Alas it’s true. I’ve got this dog and that cat and the other thing, not to mention my Kittycats themselves. Give me your pets, your fishtanks, your sweet little loves to run around my house and make it less empty.
Getting ready in the morning is never a trial yet, I have to admit I dread it. I never know what I’m going to be getting up to, so it’s hard to make an informed decision about what to wear. Fur? Cocktail dress? Jeans?
I get that way sometimes when someone is blathering on in a crazy way.
If ten people do the same thing you do without drama, and you are constantly being “dragged into drama” perhaps just perhaps …..it’s you.
Some things this veteran old blogger can tell you which can, in fact, help you decrease your level of drama are as follows.
No one is copying your style. No one. If someone IS copying your style please refer to the first sentence. There is a limited number of heads, bodies, and clothes in this world. If someone happens to recreate what you did – or hell just likes the way you did it and dresses up like that too – IT DOES NOT MATTER. Your style is way more than the thinks you choose to wear. If it’s not – you fail.
If you aren’t getting paid you don’t have sponsors quit rambling on about it.
You are not obligated to 23589723948 blog posts a day. If you DO that many blog posts a day don’t bitch about it. No one requires you to do that.
Creators are right to have expectations, as well do events. That doesn’t mean they own you. Flailing about regarding your “obligations” is just weird bragging. Don’t bitch and moan. Do what you’re supposed to do and move along. OR DON’T SIGN UP FOR MORE THAN YOU CAN SUPPORT.
2018 is off to a rocky start with a five-day stay at the hospital. I am home again, thankfully, and recovering. Oddly enough, though, I seem to have picked up vertigo at the hospital. I know you can’t do that, but I did anyway. So the world is a spinny, dizzy, silly place. It’s really odd. I can turn to the left just fine, but turning to the right makes me dizzy. I see political implications in this. Turning to the right is bad for you.
What’s not bad for you? The refulgent abundance of this month’s fabulous Collabor88 showcase. The theme is Moody Blooms, a clever pun that is overshadowed by the rich, lush, floral blossoming of creativity to enjoy this month. For example, this gorgeous dress from Baiastice has a HUD that allows you to choose solids or the gorgeous floral lace. I love the luxe beauty. There’s this homage to medieval forms with the lines of the bodice. I love the lace peplum, though it’s more flattering than the usual peplum by laying close to the body rather than adding lots of width. Continue reading →
