Tuesday is a Werkday

Did you wake up ready to face another day grinding it out on the grid? What’s your poison? Roleplay? Shopping? Racing cars? Sumo wrestling? Whatever it is, I hope you plunge in headfirst today and make the most of your amazing day ahead. Let’s make this a great day guys!

The clothes are a gift from the Stay at Home Club. Totally cute, comes with a nice HUD for color selection. Slight quibble int hat the shoulders clip wrong if you stand certain ways and are wonky – but free isn’t a price I complain about and as you can see, if you don’t stand that way it’s just fine.

I’m not sure what brand it’s from, as in the folder it just had some symbol. Folks, put your name on your products. Don’t expect your bloggers to do work to find who you were in a sea of 1000 other things they have lined up to blog. That’s a tip for everyone not just this brand.

Happy Tuesday girls!

The Pirates of Bellisseria

I went outside to get set up for my cookout/pool party today and discovered this off the coast. The Jolie Rouge is up, so that’s a bit concerning to me. They continued sailing onward around the tip of the coast and heading toward Bloodroot. I feel like it’s very likely that is where they were headed with a name like that. Don’t you?

Just a simple affair today with lots of sun and food. I’m going to have to get Aliana to change her hair when Cajsa finally gets back on the grid regularly. Two redheads would be too confusing. But she’s my Alt Bestie that’s for sure. I keep thinking I will make her a proper bedroom – it can almost be like she really lives here! Poor girl. I never let her go many places.

It’s hot and sweaty today. A true traditional summer kick off kind of day. I should have invited over more people but then I’m never good at being around when other people are having things. I should work on that.

I picked up a new pool from the Stay at Home Club – that is a great free pick up run don’t walk. I also got us both a new swimsuit for the day. Free is my favorite price.

I hope that your Memorial Day weekend was reverent to those lost but that your time spent with family and friends was fully of love and sunshine.

Happy Monday girls.

Seaside Abode

I have a couple of quibbles with my house and they’re small but mainly it’s because the windows don’t look out at the sea. That in itself isn’t much of an issue, as I have a huge backyard and access to a boat dock rezz zone if I trespass on the lighthouse island nearby. All of that being said, I have to admit, I’m a sucker for being seaside regardless of the weather. Stormy Friday nights suit me fine. After all, I’ve got 165k items in my inventory, surely I couldn’t truly be said to WANT for anything now could I?

This chair about gave me a heart attack trying to acquire it. Locations that are full because people are shopping frequently cause me to not bother with them at all. I’ve lost the patience for it. But in this instance I have to admit I simply HAD to have it. I was creating a little cozy-casual nook for drinks, TV and relaxing and it just fit the part so perfectly. So I reloaded the TP to the spot over and over and over like a peasant until I got in.

Seriously, I felt like an SL pioneer.

Regardless – amazing chair ACQUIRED.

It’s a discounted item (not a gift, gifts are FREE) at ANTHEM event from Bazar. I think it was 60L or 50L or I don’t know what but WORTH every penny. It is awesome.

Eventually I got hungry and wanted to have some kung pao beef, but I got bored waiting on it to cook and cut ups some veggies. Midnight snacks have no rules.

I finally got my food wrapped up and headed back to my comfy chair only to find that I’d been usurped.

Snake Plisskin, what a jerk.

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….

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.

Dusk till Dawn with My Alt

We didn’t have big plans for a Saturday Night, so we ventured out to a local hang out and plopped down in comfy chairs for some acoustic music and an occasional overpriced coffee. I took my alt Aliana over to The Epiphany to pick up a new wig, and it was quality time with someone I don’t find annoying. I’m DEFINITELY going to be keeping her on deck more – she’s not picky about what color hair comes out of a gacha and not fussy when I dress her out of the 10L box from Izzie’s.

Truly, a low maintenance companion.

I was grateful that we thought to grab food while we were at The Epiphany. A cup of noodles and a slice hit the spot as we wound down back at home. Belliseria at dawn is really lovely.

We are going to end up sleeping away Sunday, I’m sure of it.

All Dressed Up…and…

Shades of Lilac ruled the night

I can’t recall where I picked this dress up, just that it was a must have for a future, special, unknown evening. Tonight seemed like this might in fact BE that night. After all, a girl has to go out sometimes, doesn’t she?

Regret and indecision feel the same

Back in Slink Hourglass body I am reminded of how much I love her curves.

Maybe I’ll just stay home

Sometimes you just aren’t meant to go out, it seems.

Friends and Alts

I confess I also ran over and grabbed a GENUS head to give it a try. I DO like it. Some folks have some complaints about the HUDS etc – but for me, just to try out a new brand, it was pretty pleased. I am not sure if she’s gonna be PERMAGIDGE but, indeed, I do like it.

My typist has been basically besieged by the chaos of pandemic life, and hasn’t been around to take dictation – pity I know. I’ve had so many adventures she’ll never know about. That’s probably for the best though, isn’t it?

I hope the DMCA situation is settled without much drama and soon as I like this brand and would gladly explore a new head from them!

I do’t have the eyes quite right yet

I am struggling with the eyes a bit. I don’t like what came with it they are wonky and so I’ll have to keep working. Eyes can be tricky which I find annoying. I love this hair and might have to get this cut in the AFTER time. Someday – when salons are open again!

I liked the head so much that I ran out and got it on my new roommate my Alt. Is she my sister? Maybe. I need to keep working on her.

Coffee with my new Roomie

Now I hear Akeruka has a head I need to pick up! These deals are the best!

How is your quarantine going? My typist just said she’s going to start making more time for me. Good for her.
