Midweek Hurdle

We did it. We got past the midweek hurdle. Personally it was a struggle but I am struggling in general to ever get anything done these days. The ennui or laziness that seems to own me is pervasive. I’m trying to fight it but, the struggle is real.

I probably just need to go shopping.

Shopping fixes everything, right?

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.

The gifts at Fameshed this round are ridiculous and I’m clad in them today. This little lingerie-esque dress plus my hair were both pickups from the multitude of gifts available. Truly- I admire the generosity of their creators. More than once I grab something and then go back to buy more because I’m impressed with the style or quality. Giving good freebies says a LOT about you as a creator.

To those of you giving out chokers. Get your shit together. Especially those of you who make home furnishings and give out a choker. They’re always crap. Just stop it.

Now that I’m ranty I’d also like to say that if you give a free gift, it should be OF the sort of thing you make. If you make hair, don’t give me earrings. If you make shoes – for the love of god don’t give me a flower. You see, if you give me shoes and I’m impressed, I’m going to come back and buy shoes from you. If you give me some random ass flower -I’m not going to remember you as a shoe maker.

Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

It’s a ME day today. So I’m going to let the pixel baby come home from Auntie Inventory’s house! Crazy right?

I like this round little face head.

In Quarantine on the Grid

Puzzles, Games and Bunnies with some Chinese takeout

I decided this past weekend to jump headfirst back in to my SLife, whereas prior I’ve been just dallying here and there. I’ve blasted my way through new brands, gotten out of my comfort zone, tried things I would NEVER have bothered with in the past.

In short – I finally feel at home again in this pixel world. I’m extremely excited about it.

One thing I decided to do while I am playing with new things is start dragging out OLD skins. One of those great features of BOM is the ability to make everything old new again. I have HUGE regrets that I trashed my old LEAGUE skins when applier HUDS became the rage. Why did I trash LEAGUE? I don’t know. I trashed a few brands, Curio, and some others, and my sadness that they are lost to me forever is huge.

One thing I learned, by dragging these skins out and slapping them on a mesh head via BOM is this. They did not age well. I would say 75% of my old skins are very OMG WTF WTF NO NO NO. It’s sort of like that. The colors are just off, or not current. The look is too harsh. Sometimes they don’t stretch across mesh properly and it’s all just wrong.

But every once in a while an old brand reminds me how I loved them, once upon a time. Long since gone is Tuli – that maker of delicate, lovely skin. An old friend once described Tuli as making the “most kissable lips”. I was a such a fan girl, once upon a time.

I will confess that this skin still has a lovely face, but it doesn’t “quite” work with mesh. The line between head and body I can’t seem to overcome it’s always JUST a bit wonky. The thing is though, this skin was never meant for mesh. Mesh wasn’t an itch in it’s daddy’s pants back when I got this skin. So I’ve pulled the old blogger cheat and slapped on a choker necklace and somewhat obscured this.

I promise you, I’ll do the same any time I wear it in the future. Don’t judge me. Wearing Tuli is like running in to an old friend you thought was gone forever.

Another aside, as I ramble a LOT on this Sunday morning, is that I discovered a pose store I really love. As a pose maker, I was always completely reticent to enter any pose shops or use ANYONE’S poses because I didn’t want to be accused of ripping off anyone’s work. Even long after I closed up shop, I still continued this habit and I feel like it’s been pretty limiting. I can’t even remember why I stumbled in to Secret Poses but their Chinese Take Out pose set completed my desire to be eating constantly in SL.

I am a huge fan, and am going to be shopping there more.

And now, it’s Sunday. Whatever should I do on a Sunday? Probably eat….

May 1st 2020

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.

Fog and Rain Make an Early Night

I picked up this adorable bunny for snuggling at the Gachaland from Hopscotch as a free gift yesterday. It’s just the perfect size for bed time snuggles and coziness. Bellisseria is having a rainy day. It makes me wish I could turn my house around and let the big windows face the ocean.

It’s a perfect night to hit the sack early and just listen to the rain and the surf. Pretty good life, if you ask me.

I picked up this very cute nightgown from Seniha from the STAY AT HOME CLUB. It’s labeled as a dress but that’s a snuggle up, bed-time print to me so I’m calling it a nightgown. I don’t even care.

The rabbit and I will be in bed if you’re looking for us. I hope your Thursday was good to you. You deserve it.

Gidge Goes Victorian

My Water Feature

I was feeling a bit adventurous and rolled the dice on getting one of the new Victorian Homes. Despite the fact that this moved me away from Cajsa – their siren song was just too compelling. My first try I got a lovely spot next to this beautiful water feature.

I have no complaints.

Of course I only had to ride my bike a short way to find people immediately ruining the beautifully curated garden landscape.

I was too dumfounded to let the paving stones rez. What the hell is that? What are you doing?

I get it if you wanna have a vehicle. At least have the sense to put it behind your house.

My friend Gogolita is the decor police – I may have to join her in this endeavor. These are so well done, it’s just tragic if people can’t maintain the look really. How hard is it not to put out crap that doesn’t match?

I’m giving these guys a pass, they might be trying to decide what they like.

Have you made the jump to the Linden Victorians? This is the time – get yours now and let’s make a community! I will put some coffee on and you can come over any time! I promise!

You Had Me at Free Pig

Free Gifts at SaNaRae do not disappoint

Well I wasn’t up to fighting the crowds for Black Friday craziness but I will tell you this, free pig from Schadenfreude at SaNaRae got me dressed.

In fact, I rolled around and picked up all of the gifts – there were some good ones! I did a wee bit of shopping too, but not toooo much, I’m a girl on a budget.

My other favorite gift are these adorable glasses – they have a snow ON or snow OFF option, and several texture choices. Very thoughtful, fun gift!

Lipgloss so shiny an intergalactic princess would envy

I’m still riding the BakesOnMesh train pretty hard. Today I’m wearing skin from TULI – that vintage skinner who doesn’t create any more. I kinda love being back in to my old skins – I’m so glad i never trashed most of them.

Have you tried BoM yet? It’s life changing.

Living Large on the Gangway

I’m your trashy neighbor, sorry.

Well it happened, with a lot of help and encouragement from my friend Gogolita I managed to get a spot on Bellisaria on the newly opened Gangway. Fate would have it that Cajsa has a houseboat right in front of my house, which is backed by a park behind me and a lovely stretch of road in front. 

It’s a nice little suburban wonderland really. 

SO you know I just had to get all crazy trashy with A GIANT HELLO KITTY SLIDE. It’s not my fault, I had to. At least for a little while

Hair Fair Is Over, Thank Goodness I at least shopped.

Cajsa managed to get off the Hair Fair press releases this year, as I was completely swamped. But I did manage to get over and do my part shopping that awesome event, I picked up several new hairs and felt warm and fuzzy when they were really contributing to Wigs for Kids. Hair Fair is such an amazing event – I hope you went.

Happy Here

This little home may be my home base for a while. Pity my neighbors i’m about to decorate for Halloween!
