Fireworks and BBQ

There’s a lot of planning that goes in to putting on a perfect July 4 shindig so I had to get started early. How much food is too much? Who even knows?

I decided to give the grill a cleaning and a run through tonight. Stop judging me, some of that meat is for the neighbors. No really I’m very hospitable.

I practiced making drinks and sampling my own wares I have to say, these are delicious. I think I’m about ready for the big day tomorrow.

ChicChica had a FUN little group gift out for all you 4th of July types. I had to get one. SUPER cute.

All this getting ready for the big day has me completely worn out. Are you ready? What are your plans?

I picked up these amazingly comfy PRIDE sneaks from BLEICH and I recommend you run don’t walk to grab them for 50L if they are still there. Perfect, comfy shoes.

Bring on the 4th!

Corndog Safari

I’m out for adventure today and decided that I wanted some sort of Safari adventure to happen. I found an interesting build which promised animals I could ride and lots of scenery but I got stuck in how cute the landing area was and took a bunch of photos there. There is something to be said for a nice vignette, isn’t there?

I have these new shoes from Ingenue – who is my go to for all shoes – and they are perfect for exploring on a hot day! They’re sneakers! They’re sandals! They’re comfy and perfect and exactly what I needed for wandering this safari landscape today.

I also decided that the time was RIGHT for me to check out Equal 10 and honestly, that event had some great things – not sure why I don’t frequent it more? Really cute things there were going on from folks I was NOT that familiar with. One brand I am very familiar with and a fan of was ChicChica who truly makes some of my favorite foodie things on the grid. It’s fun fun – all of her food is a pretty as it is delish.

She had this corn dog for sale and I tested the demo to check it out and of course – CUTE. I forgot I had it on when I ran off to take pics. So of course, I had a corndog on safari.

Corndog by ChicChica

I mean it’s a demo corndog. But that doesn’t make it any less delicious. I’m going to have to go back and buy the set, I feel guilty being one of those bloggers who wears the demos only! We all know that’s not cool.

But, it was still delicious. Much love to Lilo for her long lasting foodie things.

As my good friend Rose mentioned – Magika is havinga 50% off sale and you need to go. All hair is rebated 50% back to you when you buy it. Her work is beautiful.

Havana Classic

I went walking the Plaza Havana on a sunny day, taking in the sights and feeling pretty relaxed as one does in such a tropical paradise. It’s a lovely little build just recently set up by Geoff Quinnell – you may know him from the Geoff Quinnell Orchestra which performs in the center of the plaza. it’s a lovely homage to Havana in it’s classic days. 

Although it was inadvertent, I was luckily dressed appropriately for this retro themed sim. I was feeling every bit of a 40s doll as I sought a place to stay. Luckily the Hotel Colonial had one room left before the orchestra kicked off.  i came for the scenery but I might just stay for the cool ocean breezes and great music!

Return to the Grind

I’m cold. It’s ridiculously cold and wet outside. You might be tempted to tell me that this is my own fault for living on an island but I’d tell you to go suck an egg. I’m still going to complain. The winds are whipping and making my dogs bark incessantly. Plus, I got up early and while trying to get my breakfast together I sent a cake flying across the island.

Yes I was GOING to have cake for breakfast.

No, I don’t know where it is anymore.

I’m having a waffle instead and since I can’t have cake I’ll be angrily chewing his face off.

Well, not TOO angrily. I’m pretty happy given my delicious cup of cocoa I’ve got going today. Even the hand pose with it has me tickled. It’s almost worth being up this early. Almost. Continue reading

Start With Some Fruit

I’m trying to be healthier. I tend to be just so terribly lazy so I thought to myself, SELF, get up, get dressed in something cute and have some delicious fruit for breakfast. JUST DO IT. Get yourself organized and get some stuff done. Continue reading

No Resolutions

2018 is off to a rocky start with a five-day stay at the hospital. I am home again, thankfully, and recovering. Oddly enough, though, I seem to have picked up vertigo at the hospital. I know you can’t do that, but I did anyway. So the world is a spinny, dizzy, silly place. It’s really odd. I can turn to the left just fine, but turning to the right makes me dizzy. I see political implications in this. Turning to the right is bad for you.

What’s not bad for you? The refulgent abundance of this month’s fabulous Collabor88 showcase. The theme is Moody Blooms, a clever pun that is overshadowed by the rich, lush, floral blossoming of creativity to enjoy this month. For example, this gorgeous dress from Baiastice has a HUD that allows you to choose solids or the gorgeous floral lace. I love the luxe beauty. There’s this homage to medieval forms with the lines of the bodice. I love the lace peplum, though it’s more flattering than the usual peplum by laying close to the body rather than adding lots of width.

I’m Still Standing

Despite their sharp stiletto, standing is pretty easy peasy in these new heels from BREATHE which you can pick up for your holiday fun at THE ARCADE! I popped over to get some holiday gifts and was delighted that despite there still being a crowd, I could get around quite quickly and get my shopping done.

I love when you can get in and it’s not completely crazy town at events. You get all the fun and none of the crazy bonking into people!

I did Luxebox this month because Poppy has a dress in it and – what do you know it’s the GIDGE dress! It was a must have for me and I think you’ll like it too if you get the box. It’s so cute and has perfect colors for any time but I had to go with holiday colors.  Continue reading
