Pastries on a Sunday

I popped over to this London sim that is on the Destination Guide but found it gutted with divas striking poses all over the faux English square. Can’t so much as get a shot of a double decker bus without someone else there shooting – and truly – good for them.

I think it’s fun that the destination guide draws folks to places so we can experience what is lovely – it’s rather lovely to celebrate someone’s work this way!

Since I am here, there is no reason not to celebrate their success with a sweet – don’t you agree? I can’t decide between cupcake and macaron, however.

You might notice that I’m wearing the same hair again. Ever just FALL IN LOVE with a hair? Well that’s where I am. I decree all of Kavar’s hair has to be this amazing going forward – the bar has been set. This is so perfect. I don’t want to stop wearing it.

New head, new skin new hair. I have no complaints really.

I suppose I can deal with a Monday coming in. Maybe?

Feels Like Monday

I’ve done a bit of wandering today. I couldn’t figure out why I was only bringing up some really lame locations from search. I love to just search random terms and see where I end up. It turns out my search wasn’t logged in properly and I was only bringing up G rated locations. There are so many amazing builds across the grid, I never know where I’m going to end up. This little shanty town offered a lovely waterfront view as well as some snacks and games.

It looks like amphibious plane is the best way to get here if you can’t teleport in. Adventure abounds in this spot.

I’ve had such a good time exploring this location. I love this bird. I kinda want it.

How has your week been going? I got some exciting secret news today. Maybe I’ll get to show you soon!

The Return of Blueblood

My beloved cousin Ghanima Uriza messaged me the other day after a long absence. She has started to dip her toe into the world of mesh and I guess I had not realized how long she’d been gone – the pixel world has changed so much since the last time we were able to chat.

She’s back at work creating her beautifully hand-painted textures that were the HALLMARK of Blueblood back in the heyday. I am so excited to get to share a little something she’s been working on.

It was so lovely to chat with her, to talk about our lives and how we are both in such a different place how with regards to how we embrace Grid Life. Neither of us are willing to allow it to run us anymore, instead we are excited to get to participate in the things we love on our own terms. For me it’s blogging, for her it’s creating.

I have to say, I’m excited to have another Uriza cousin back on the grid. We’re a rare breed.

We Used to Dress Like This

I could NOT resist on this, the anniversary of IOF’s 13th year, to wear this freebie outfit I got at Shop n Hop for Christmas.

I love the Shop n Hop events. I roll through them like a kid in a candy store. I love finding new stores and grabbing freebies to see what folks are giving out, and buying things that I don’t need just because I want them.

I used to have a friend in SL who said Need wasn’t a word we used.

You might think I’m insulting this outfit, but I’m not. It’s well made. It comes with several color options and frankly, it’s cute! I like it. I was tickled to find it in the box as a gift, and felt like today was just the perfect day to wear it.

I am also wearing a skin from YS & YS whom I haven’t worn in a while and I love it. It’s a wonderful free gift also from Shop n Hop.

Sunday Afternoon Supply Run

I needed to run out to pick up a few things today and decided I’d stop at my favorite beauty supply shop. It might not look like much, but it’s got it where it counts, kid.

After I’d grabbed a few necessities I decided to find a lunch counter to grab a quick bite. Interestingly, a found a place that had a vending machine lunch and so I decided to give that a whirl. You KNOW how much I love to eat. Plus I love fun cafes, so this had everything I was looking for!

The portion sizes I got back in exchange for my vending machine ticket were CRAZY! Am I supposed to eat all of this? Well I’ll give it a whirl! A little of this, a little of that, what a perfect treat on my shopping trip.

Now what to do with the rest of my day?

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?

May 12th, 2020

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.

Light and Dark

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….
