Okinawa Summer Festival

Best Kimono IN THE WORLD

I was a little bored yesterday so I hit up Seraphim to see what if any new to me events might be worth a gander. Okinawa Summer Festival was a JACKPOT.  I love events that have things to do, things to see, fun AND shopping all in the same place. This one does not disappoint.

Water Balloon! YOYO! Both things are TRUE!

First thing I got to do was play a little game to pick a bouncy balloon thingy. WHAT IS IT? It’s like a YO YO it’s LIKE A WATER BALLOON! I could HIT people with it if I liked!  This is brilliant.

My next favorite part were these AMAZING food stalls. I just went to each one, stuffing my face ridiculously. I’m not even sorry. But isn’t festival food the best part of any event in RL? I love that they are here – plus they are for sale – I’m so tempted….


I love the eating and not gaining weight life.

The gachas are reasonably priced and fun at this event. I picked up several very fun items that were just a delight to grab. PLUS – they have an old “discontinued” gachas section where everything is at a discount. You can bet your ass I picked up a bunch of nonsense over there. 25L a pull? I NEED 10 of them. WHATEVER IT IS!

Let’s face it, I’m now an official fangirl of this event.

I don’t know what this is. But I’m gonna eat it.

How many rings is too many?

Good morning all. I’m slowly getting my morning motivation going. I’ve got to go grocery shopping, maybe see if anything is left from FLF (I forgot to go yesterday ouch), and do some house cleaning. 

I stopped over at the Notice me Senpai event and picked up this cute top in a gacha. It’s a cute event. 

What are your plans for this weekend? I feel like I need to be social. BUT WILL I? Stay tuned…

Dear Diary, I Almost Moved

Dear Diary….

Well, I almost moved yesterday. I have toyed with the idea of moving to one of the new Linden homes, I rather like the idea yet –  I’m terribly happy here on my little patch of mainland truly. Living in this snowy land with my friend Putrid as my neighbor is comforting and dozy. I keep the fires blazing and truly, I don’t have complaints.

Yet, I’m intrigued by the neighborhood concept over on Bellisaria.

I have never seen a NEW Linden neighborhood available on the Linden home list, so yesterday in a bit of leisure time I consulted the knowledge base known as Plurk and was assured that I was looking in the right place – that they just don’t show up if they are not available.  I was told to refresh aggressively and that would be my best shot at getting one when one popped up available.

Choices choices choices

I did this a few times, just for grins, when suddenly one popped up. It said to name my land and hit continue and I do confess, in a panic, I DID SO. I didn’t think about whether or not I wanted to move I was just suddenly hit with this moment of “OH NO THIS IS IT THIS IS MY CHANCE!” and hit continue.

Happy Where I Am

And then it said I had to get rid of my current 1024, or have 1024 available or something and well my friends, it was over.

I came home in a state of disappointment until I sat down again in front of my fire, in my wooden shelter surrounded by snowy mountains and I remembered “I like it here.”

My friend Luna Jubilee cam over for waffles and I realized I’m not ready to move house again, not yet.  I don’t need to move to visit and socialize – the grid is one of the few places in the world where distance isn’t a viable hindrance to anything. 

So I’ll stay put. 

I just have to figure out what to wear with these ice cream shoes I got at Gachaland. 

Happy Monday, girls.

THE HORROR

So sad that this ride is out of commission.

I was feeling a bit like getting out when I saw that Gachaland was open, and I’m a sucker for fun gacha events, so I bounced over to see what was what. Beyond just the fun of giving a pull here and there for crap I don’t need, I was excited to get to PLAY on their rather macabre themed rides.

I like to get out and DO things, and this event provided me a lot of entertainment this fine day.

I got ZERO points which is some bullshit you guys. I totally killed those Zombies!

I shot at Zombies, wished the Kissing Booth had an attendant and rode rides. I pulled the lever a few times and was delighted with what I got.  It’s kind of refreshing, not having a desperate need to have the entire set, nor having to pull 56431644 times to get the piece YOU NEED to make something an outfit.

Recommend this ride, yes I do.

I picked up this adorable dress there, although I admit I didn’t notice it was rocking the half boob which isn’t particularly my thing. It might be yours – so HALF BOOB LOVERS – rejoice!

I cannot deny that the Lucky Wheel gave me a good omen. I can always use the luck!

I’m wearing a super fun and festive hair in even MORE festive color from EXILE today. What more could a girl ask for? A carnival and a gacha event to kick off the week? PERFECTION.

Cakes and Kittens

Gonna eat this entire cake

I spent my Saturday doing a lot of nothing here in my favorite pixel world when it occurred to me – I should SURELY have a kitten box by now! SURELY! A quick area search revealed that yes indeed, the SL16B Birthday KittyCats had DONE THEIR MAGIC and made me a kitten. I baked a cake while I waited on it to hatch. 

Meet Kiva

I’m a little excited because this is the FIRST special sized KittyCat I’ve ever gotten. I’d love one of those GIANT ones (how nice to snuggle, am I right?) but this one is going to be a toy TINY little one forever it seems. That’s fine – I’m gonna probably toss it in to the inventory bin before long anyway. 

I did a wee bit of shopping earlier, grabbed this apropos tee at e.Marie – had to have it obviously.

Now I’m wondering should i get my pajamas on early and curl up for a movie ? So many choices on this chill Saturday evening. 

This new hair from Exile is so beautifully done.

Standing In Place

I found myself feeling blogger-y – compelled to stand in random places with a very serious look on my face.

I have to admit it was more than a passing fancy. I think it was the shoes. The shoes are very “I can walk in stilettos all day why can’t you?” sort of affairs. I picked them up at the Pure Poison sale, I think. Wait, no, maybe not.  The challenge of shopping TOO much is not remembering where you grabbed things. 

I’m very serious. Just look at me. Definitely got the earrings at Pure Poison though!

I’m sporting a new wig from Exile and as always, Kavar delivers amazing, natural hair. I do just love his work, I feel like his consistency is pretty ridiculous after all these years.  Talent is eternal – and we are the beneficiaries of his it would seem.

Now, I’m done being serious. Happy Sunday. Let’s make it a great week!

Bathing Is Requisite

So there is an article rolling around the internet written by someone who alleges not to have bathed for a really long time. Thematically the article is trying to say that our western obsession with bathing is unfounded.

NO. This is lies. 

While you might not need to be one of those people who showers twice or three times a day, please don’t think that if you roll around 3-4 weeks unbathed that the rest of us don’t notice. WE NOTICE. For the love of God, wash. WE NOTICE.

There are people who own animals who don’t think their house smells like animals. There are people who live by rivers who don’t think that the outside smells like dank river. 

There are all untruths, brought to you by the fact that you have gone noseblind.

In my pixel world, I never have to worry about these things yet I do observe the appropriate rituals and customs – simply so that my mind is ready for the day. I like the preparation of getting ready to go out in to the world, pixel or not.  I’m worried about the person who wrote that article and how they’re going about in their world, unaware of the horror show they are inflicting on others.

I mean, the smell. My GOD the smell.

The Thames smells a bit though. Nothing to be done about that.

Happy Sunday girls.

07/10/2018 – All the leaves are brown…

…and I’ve decided to wear brown too.

Every first Sunday of the month, a bunch of designers have some cool stuff out for a discounted price of 69l$. Find out everything you want to know about SL Syndicate Sundays here.
This round I’ve picked the cute cottage house from Funky Junk, pumpkins from QE Home and gorgeous nails from Dark Passions.

I love putting together outfits with bits and pieces in my inventory, digging up oldies but goodies, going shopping for the perfect piece to compliment the rest. Like those rings from Yummy that add a little something to my hands, making my nails pop. Or that cute little Blueberry skirt from an old Luxe Box combined with a fairly recent Tres Blah jacket and that elephand necklace from Bliensen + MaiTai…

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

Oh hai! Apparently there’s a trend on Flickr that consists of taking pictures sideways, or with an horizontal avatar. From what I understand the goal is to get one’s picture picked as group cover, then one snapshots said cover and posts it again on their Flickr. I find that last part highly ridiculous, but just like bloggers referring to designers as “sponsors”, I guess that’s how the world goes nowadays and you just have to go with the flow. I do miss simpler times, when one blogged just what they liked, when they liked it, and once in a while would get blogger copies and would be over the moon with them… oh well, I’ll just keep my old fart’s habits and hope people enjoy my ramblings. But just for today, just for the fun of it, here’s a horizontal picture :
