I decided to share off my ennui with some good old fashioned planning. I figured if I force myself to do things on a schedule It might help drive away some of the fatigue I seem to be belaboring under. I’m feeling rather excited so – this might just work! Who knows?
Fueled by pizza and pop, I’m ready to make this a productive week on the grid.
How’s your week shaping up?

I have to admit that one of the things I LOVE most about BOM being a thing is my ability to pull out RIDICULOUS things from the beginnings of SL and wear them. SUCH AS – these jeans from Butterfly Island – was that the place or the brand? The brand – was it Coconut Ice? Man I can’t remember….. Oh Butterfly Island, I coveted all your things once upon a time. I bought them, I stalked the lucky chairs, I was a fairy more often than not.
I went back once a couple of years ago or more and was nostalgic and sad for how amazing it used to be – and how it simply had not kept up in the way old stores don’t sometimes.
Thus, I put on my fairy jeans and relive my love of those days when belts were painted on our pants and we thought that was just lovely.
The secret these days, of course, is simply not to move too much in your BOM pants or that waistline slips around like crazy and you look nuts. Thus, I took may photos and tried to find the least nuttiest.
I don’t care. I still love these jeans. Weird painted fairies and all.
Now who wants to help me eat this gummy bear? This thing is ridiculous.

Once upon a time, I was a fae. I would roam the lands of a fantasy role play sim, wearing beautiful gowns and wings. But then sad things happened, I lost the love of my Slife, and left a land that no longer felt like home. I sometimes still miss the simple joy of fly-dancing with my beloved around the drum circle, surrounded by my best friends, Shay the fae, Maelenn the avariel, Eithne the dryad and Richy the dragon. So when I spotted the wings from Decoy at Collabor 88, it felt like a blast from the past, and I just had to put together an outfit with The Secret Store’s latest cutie, and find a whimsical place to take a picture.
Since I got my Lelutka Nova head, I’ve been wearing the same skin, as it was the only one I demoed that felt like me. Well I finally found another one, but, oh well, it’s yet again a skin from Lara Hurley. What can I say, her work is amazing. I’d also like to tell you about a store I discovered not long ago, Simple Bloom. If you’re not satisfied with your eyebrows, or if you want to try something different, and get a unique look, go visit their store, they have hundreds of different eyebrows, mostly BOM, and they are extremely well made.

Oh hi! Today I didn’t go to work because of what I thought was a sciatica. Turns out it’s a tendonitis in my buttock. Yes, you may laugh, and no, I don’t know how I did that. Anyway, since I had a little time at home on my own, I managed to put together an outfit and take a few pictures.
I went to Uber and grabbed a few of the gifts that each store has, as it’s a birthday round. These lovely glasses were one of them. So were the adorable fairy lights in the picture below. I also grabbed (not a gift but worth it) another set of gorgeous rings from Yummy, and the matching nails from Nylon Outfitters.

One would think, with two boys under 5 at home, my life would be filled with toy cars and firetrucks… well, actually, it is. But my oldest is also very much into princesses at the moment. Very. Much. His imaginary friends are called Anna and Elsa. So when he walked by my computer earlier this morning, he went “waaaaaaaaah! Mummy!! You’re a PRINCESS!! So pretty!”
Also, I finally gave in and got myself one of the new Evolution heads at LeLutka. Actually that happened a while ago but it took me weeks to make it look like “me”. Now, I’m quite pleased, because I can wear some of my old system skins. Not today though, today, I’m wearing one of the latest Lara Hurley, and I have to say I love it.

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.

I grabbed this cute dress at the Fashionably Dead booth at Collabor88, and then I had to dig in my inventory to find pretty things to match. And boy did I find things! That skin, for instance, si from Clef de Peau, and believe it or not, I’d never worn it before. It was buried deep in a folder of “things to sort and maybe blog”, and I’m glad I found it. It’s very pretty and the freckles are a lovely option.
But let’s get back to that dress for a minute. It comes in a gazillion colours, but I was feeling in the mood for green. The HUD offers a lot of corset options, plain and embroidered, and the level of detail is stunning.
There are stores, around the grid, where you can’t just buy one item, you just have to fatpack the whole thing. Blueberry usually has a style that’s way too sexy for my taste, but whatever she releases, even the things I wouldn’t wear, are impeccably made. The mesh is flawless, the textures gorgeous. Her latest release, In Control, is no exception, and covers enough skin that I can feel comfortable wearing it. It comes with a choice of trousers or short skirt, a top that can be lacy-see through or plain (obviously I chose plain), a blazer jacket, and it even offers shoes but I opted for a pair of maxi heels from Reign. Look at me being all working girl!
