Moving Back Home

After leaving the islands where Cajsa and I were so happy for several years, I’ve returned to a spot on one of what was always my favorite places….Juicy.

It’s a tropical paradise you see, and just the sort of escape I can use from time to time. There’s room here for both Cajsa and I to enjoy the surf and relaxation of a well kept sim, as well as beautiful shops at our fingertips. It’s a bloggers’ dream really.

I’ve got a bit unpacked, but I found a record player and I am afraid I indulged in a bit of fun for a while rather than working.

I’ve got to find a spot to rezz all my old house so I can drag out the things I can’t get unpacked.

Mass return is never fun. Oh well! Continue reading

What The Orphans Saw

I got dressed this morning and felt like doing a bit of exploring. Of course then I couldn’t find anything that wasn’t crap for about an hour.  I was about to give up, and declare today’s round of exploration a fail when I Bryn Oh’s name came up in my searching for this and that. It’d been a while since I wandered through one of their masterpieces so I thought i’d take a wander. Continue reading

Unicorns and Baby Pools

Sophie has returned from Auntie Inventory and I confess I’m a bit happy to have her home.

Let’s face it, it widens my shopping opportunities immensely now doesn’t it?

I was feeling like a bit of a pool lounge today because after I picked up the cute pumps that were out for FLF I found THESE and well my first thought was “These are the pool shoes you’ve been dreaming of Gidge, make them yours.”

And here we are. Continue reading

Summer’s The Thing

Well I couldn’t resist taking some snaps as I wandered around SUMMERFEST this year. The layout is just adorable, with sweet vignettes set up and so while I wandered, shopped and ate my cotton candy I just couldn’t not contain my enthusiasm.

Is there ever an event that you always truly enjoy, yet struggle to remember? That’s me with Summerfest. It’s a nice layout, always lovely items and just a fantastic shopping experience but for some reason despite the fact that I’m thrilled when it arrives – more often than not it closes and there I sit, forlorn at having forgotten to go.

Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so.

Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. Continue reading

So Goes May

The month of May might mean flowers and bright colors to you, but to those of us from Indianapolis it only means one important thing.

THE INDY 500.

I’ve written about it before, but let me assure you it’s not changed. Black and white rule the day and I’m delighted to have realized it’s TIME and to be here to celebrate this time of the absence of color. We love black and white, and you might be surprised to learn that despite this being a hot sweaty mess of a race day, there are a lot of quite elegant events that accompany it – and everyone, I mean EVERYONE is dressed in Black and White.

Faith In The Wild

I was in a bit of a camp out mood last night, and luckily Cheeky Pea recently released some amazing glamping gear for Epiphany.  There is something about relaxing in the fresh ocean air that really refreshes this old pixel girl. Continue reading

Does it Get Weirder Than Baked on Mesh?

I continue to play with the concept of Bakes On Mesh (WHY CAN’T WE CALL IT BAKED ON MESH?) and decided there was no more fun place to see what I could do than at my good friend Putrid’s place.

Putrid likes weird, and I like Putrid. It’s perfect.

I wandered around her club Sticky Fingers and was quite entertained to realize that my tattoos still show up properly over my “BAKED ON MESH SKIN”. I’d like to understand how the layering of all that works but no, I’m just going to pass and say WELL DONE THIS IS AWESOME.

Mesh body, mesh clothes, mesh shoes, applier tights and tattoos. Am I happy? Yeah I’m pretty happy. Continue reading

Happy Birthday Cajsa

The first time I ever visited Cajsa at her house, she lived underwater. This isn’t to say she lived in some kind of bubble house underwater, she actually lived underwater. It was the fist time it had occurred to me that since the rules of breathing were not a necessity any longer that one could just live in a house underwater – just for fun.

But she did. Continue reading
