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.

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.

One would think, with two boys under 5 at home, my life would be filled with toy cars and firetrucks… well, actually, it is. But my oldest is also very much into princesses at the moment. Very. Much. His imaginary friends are called Anna and Elsa. So when he walked by my computer earlier this morning, he went “waaaaaaaaah! Mummy!! You’re a PRINCESS!! So pretty!”
Also, I finally gave in and got myself one of the new Evolution heads at LeLutka. Actually that happened a while ago but it took me weeks to make it look like “me”. Now, I’m quite pleased, because I can wear some of my old system skins. Not today though, today, I’m wearing one of the latest Lara Hurley, and I have to say I love it.

I’m liking this idea of getting one new item, and matching it with a bunch of older things from my inventory. For one, I’m thrifty these days and it saves me some l$. Also, it ensures I will not show the exact same look everyone is displaying on the feeds. I fatpacked the Jouy dress at the Emery Booth at Collabor 88, it came with a lovely jacket but I found one from
I didn’t feel like travelling on the grid to take m picture, so I just stayed at home. I do love my home, I probably should show more of it some day.

I grabbed this cute dress at the Fashionably Dead booth at Collabor88, and then I had to dig in my inventory to find pretty things to match. And boy did I find things! That skin, for instance, si from Clef de Peau, and believe it or not, I’d never worn it before. It was buried deep in a folder of “things to sort and maybe blog”, and I’m glad I found it. It’s very pretty and the freckles are a lovely option.
But let’s get back to that dress for a minute. It comes in a gazillion colours, but I was feeling in the mood for green. The HUD offers a lot of corset options, plain and embroidered, and the level of detail is stunning.
Oh hi again! I told you I got both the short and the long version of the cute jumpsuit from Etiquette, didn’t I? Well here’s the long one. I chose the green one because I figured, for a long one, a lighter colour would be prettier. Then came the hard part, accessorising. And for that I went into digging mode in the organised chaos that is my inventory. I apologise in advance if some of the things I wear are old and possibly discontinued.
I’ve been buying hair from Magika since 2007 I think, back then it was already way better than what most other (now long gone) hair makers would do. I’m always amazed at how, with every new release, Sabina Gully keeps improving and renewing her style. This cute one is called Prudence and comes with a cat and a devil horn headband, but I wanted something more elegant for this picture so I dug up this starry headband.

There are people who are too good for mainland, who find the allure of the privately held islands close to their heart. There are some who are in love with the new Linden homes , and who can blame them they are adorable. As for me I’ve returned to the Mainland, and I’m finding that it’s really not the chaos I remember. A little 1024 in a snowy land is proving to be a cozy choice for this busy girl.
I might be lucky that none of my neighbors have put up GOTH SEX CASTLES as some are wont to do around here. My next door neighbor DOES have up those ridiculous Pink Pony ban lines.
Pro-tip, if you furniture is 2010 hideous there is no chance I’m coming traipsing through your house. No no no. You don’t need the ban lines. Also, your ban lines don’t prevent me from camming in to SEE your 2010 furniture or any other shenanigans. So really, all you’ve done is be ugly by putting those up and forcing me to look at them. LUCKILY Gogo told me how to NOT have to see them so I’m happy now.
The real win is that my friend Putrid is my other neighbor and so we can pop in on each other as much as we like. THAT is awesome.
I picked up the lingerie at the Pure Poison marketplace sale for 1L – and can we just say it’s more not there than there? Woo my modesty! I’ll stay seated, thank you.
Hope your day is full of beauty and wonder.

I spent the last few days moving house (yes again what can I say) and after working like a peasant moving prims about I decided that I deserved a little vacation. I grabbed my bags and headed out to try my hand at surfing. I know I’ve done a little now and then throughout the years but it’s been so long since I’ve dedicated a few hours to being able to do it that I thought WHY NOT NOW?
How hard could it be?
Well it’s not easy. AT ALL. There’s a weird combination of skill plus your computers lack of lagging out plus well, just LUCK I think involved. I got knocked off my board a lot.
It seems like it’s all in your toes, if I’m honest. If i was thinking about my toes when I was guiding her, I managed to not go wonky. Eventually I ended up doing this a lot, paddling out, surfing in, paddling out, surfing in.
Why is this so satisfying?
I don’t know, but it’s made my day pretty wonderful.
I have to go home at some point. But not right now.
