SL17B

I had an inauspicious landing at SL17B as the landing point i chose dropped me right in the middle of some pool inside a building of some sort. It never rezzed to the point that I could figure out if it was a temple, or some sort of memorial or what it was I was trapped in. I finally managed to climb out, irritated to say the least but as always, I wanted to love SL17B.

It’s like the sims on SL17B were planned and put together by people who never once had to plan or lay out an event. There is some sort of joyous “cram everything together and who cares how it looks” planning that seems to go on. What this ends up meaning for us mortals not rocking the greatest gaming computer is that it is lag hell, and rendering hell. Is that a rocket ship? Is that a rock? Is that a cyclops? I’ll never know. It never rezzed.

It’s hard to put down the amazing and inspired vignettes our fellow citizens make though. There’s so much joy and creativity, little activities scattered through out to make you smile and let you enjoy the view. Sometimes maybe it’s ok if things aren’t perfect, if you can still enjoy the fun of it.

I stumbled in to a poetry cafe, where we were invited to sit and then touch the photo of the poet we were interested in. I was handed a copy of Maya Angelou’s Poem “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” which was poignant to me in light everything going on out in the world.

There are some amazing builds, beautiful vignettes to take photos or just play and enjoy your SL. It’s worth the lag and slogging through the mess of it, it really is. There are gifts that are amazing and you can find those in concentrated gift areas. There’s also a shopping area – shop and hop or something or other. You can locate them all here at this link.

Have you gone? You need to go.

After all – there is a free Kittycat! Always a win.

There was a lot more to see and do – obviously one place was giving out a horse to ride, which I found to be delightful. There is a trolley but I could never manage to get on it – i find that confusing. I waited a ridiculous amount of time – let me tell you. It kept going! There is also a drive in movie which LOOKS great but doesn’t work – it says you can click on the screen to start it but it just craps out.

Regardless of these quibbles – SL17B will only come once and this is your chance. Get off your platform and go have some fun. Be ridiculous. Pick up the freebies. Come for the fun, stay for the lag.

In Murder City They Have a Cat

I went out Friday in search of some dinner and to take a look-see around the world. I love stumbling in to new places, finding things and meeting folks. Murder City ended up being a perfect place for an evening like that.

While there is a bit of the odd murder here or there, it’s a great spot for taking photos and exploring, lots of little things to find and do while you are there.

I grabbed a bowl of ramen for dinner and I do confess, I was surprised that it wasn’t poisoned or the cook didn’t stab me. I guess even murder city needs a spot for dinner in between the murders

After a bite I explored for quite a while. There’s a lot to see and find here – and I got to meet the owner who says she’s still building more so I am going to have to come back some time and check out what’s new.

I seriously love this cat you guys.

When it started to rain and murder definitely seemed more likely I decided it was time to head about to Bellisseria for some quiet. Before I headed out though, I decided to avail myself of this “touchless” pizza delivery option. After all, by the time I get home I’m going to be hungry, right?

I really hope this taxi is headed to Bellisseria…what’s that down this tunnel….

Life Gets In The Way

Life has been hectic, chaos even but this Saturday evening I’m spending quality time stalking the Lucky Chairs at Alaska Metro. It’s the fault of Kitty over at Kittywichin and so you see i’m not to be blamed. I nabbed this cute skirt almost immediately and now I’m stuck here waiting for the next cool thing.

What’s a girl to do anyway?

I’ve slapped on a new SLINK Visage head and I just have to say, there’s an odd comfort in not even worrying about what something looks like. I guess that’s just decades of quality work built up. I’m not sure it’s Gidge’s face yet but I new it would be pretty and it is. I have to try on others and decide who will be Gidge. It’s anyone’s guess.

Unicorn lips and eye shadow from Alaska Metro

Stalking Lucky Chairs, I’m retro chic this evening it seems.

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.

Long Time, No Blog

Long Time, No Blog

Hello, world! That’s what the blank sample post always starts with in WordPress and it seems appropriate as it has been a long time since I last blogged. Fifteen months! I won’t bore you with all the details, but I have been having some health issues that just made SL seem overwhelming.  

On to more interesting topics like this gorgeous Poker Suit from Baiastice. I don’t know why it’s called Poker Suit, except maybe the décolletage will distract other players enough to help you win. I can see that happening. The top is tailored with a pagoda shoulder, a fitted waist, and a styling HUD that allows you to wear it cropped or with a peplum. You can also wear it with the bra showing or hidden and choose from a range of colors. The pencil skirt length can also be shortened with the HUD. There are a range of solid and prints. I chose this lovely lace brocade. With the print, I wanted a simple, classic shoe and there’s nothing more classic than Slink’s Siren stilettos

The beautiful pagoda shoulders add architectural interest to the Poker Suit jacket.

The jewelry is from Kunglers. I am wearing the Lola necklace and Vera earrings. Both come with a HUD scripted to allow changes to the metal and stones. The necklace also allows us to change the color of the cords. The nails are from AlaskaMetro, the Kimono manicure suiting the laciness of the suit.

I love Dura’s short hair. 

Finally, Glam Affair’s Stella adds the final touches.

Cold AF

This hair from Exile is gorgeous

I’m a wandering nomad for a few more days and I confess to having a bit of fun.  There is  bit of silliness that you can embrace when you’re sorting out your next SL adventure and I’m embracing it fully. After all, it’s a world full of fun, I might as well have some. 

I did some wandering today through the new Linden homes – they are going to have BOATHOUSES! I have a boathouse from Dutchie – maybe I will live in it? It’s possible. The linden ones all are pretty cool but they just ack the oomph I’m looking for. Or course I do reserve the right to change my mind.

Today in my completely inappropriate for the weather clothing I’m wearing a cute ensemble from Baiastice – one of the staple brands of well dressed girls everywhere on the grid. I’ve slipped on some new cute as hell flats from Ingenue and I’m wearing a great new hair from Exile.

Back in Glam Affair skin – Matte Lips FTW

Now I’m off for adventure. I hope you have one today too girls.

Camping at Swayland

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.

I Didn’t Forget The Baby !

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

Feels Like Fall

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
