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.

I had a great idea for my solo New Year’s Adventure. I was going to go hop on the train at Red Hook and take pics of people’s lovely Victorians and just enjoy this lovely area. I thought it was an amazing plan. Then I stood at the train station and no train came, and I couldn’t find a button to push to request the train. I was probably doing something wrong but I could NOT figure out WHAT.
I ended up giving up and getting in my car and going for a drive.
It was a great time for an early morning drive, but eventually I wound up at the end of Bellisseria and found the beach. Of course some how these lucky sods had these AMAZING beach views – just stunning. I parked and walked along the beach while the sun continued it’s dance upward. There is definitely something to be said for these Victorians on the beach.
I decided to drown my sorrows in some treats and just spend the rest of the day languishing in my own beautiful Victorian. Such sorrow, truly.
I found a pretty cute grocery to stop in at. It actually had some sort of role play farmers market and vegetables with expiration dates. This is too much of a time commitment for moi. I am intrigued but no, just no.
Maybe? No, no no. No actual food that expires I cannot.
I ordered in Sushi, put on a movie and decided I was in for the night. The cats didn’t mind and truly, I crashed on the couch and didn’t have a care in the world. 2019 was good, and I’m not worked up about 2020. It will be fine. Every single year doesn’t have to be some groundbreaking event. Sometimes just making it happen is enough.
I did, however, wake up and move house.
Because – beachy Vic.

I was feeling a bit adventurous and rolled the dice on getting one of the new Victorian Homes. Despite the fact that this moved me away from Cajsa – their siren song was just too compelling. My first try I got a lovely spot next to this beautiful water feature.
I have no complaints.
Of course I only had to ride my bike a short way to find people immediately ruining the beautifully curated garden landscape.
I get it if you wanna have a vehicle. At least have the sense to put it behind your house.
My friend Gogolita is the decor police – I may have to join her in this endeavor. These are so well done, it’s just tragic if people can’t maintain the look really. How hard is it not to put out crap that doesn’t match?
Have you made the jump to the Linden Victorians? This is the time – get yours now and let’s make a community! I will put some coffee on and you can come over any time! I promise!

I’m still playing with the glory that is the Baked on Mesh concept – the idea that our old system layers can be baked onto our beautiful mesh.
it’s fairly fascinating and wonderful honestly. Today I decided to do some swimming and to celebrate what’s possible I’m wearing an amazing new bikini from Blueberry – paired with a skin from………MOTHER GOOSE.
Mother Goose that lucky board haven, that magical land of fun and interesting skins. YES I can and will wear her skins on my mesh. And so many more. Continue reading →
“This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one. There were still plenty left running to keep the air over Detroit filled with that choking industrial aptitude, but you were never far from a hollowed-out factory, massive steel tubes on the roofs pointing up toward the sky with nothing left inside but dust and cobwebs. These giant pillars of concrete and metal now jutted high like extended index fingers from broken and casted hands, pointing toward something they would never touch.”
― Michael A. Ferro, TITLE 13: A Novel
The Arcade closes at midnight Saturday and if you let that happen without picking up the fabulous industrial pieces from NOMAD, you will miss out. The gacha has the delicious name of My Cozy Little Industrial Facility that cracks me up in the best possible way. Continue reading →
Maybe the best part of Thanksgiving is just unwinding and chatting with your friends. I rarely have folks over and we’ve decided that needs to change! We need more visiting and more socialization not less.
Maybe we will all work on that for 2018 eh? Who knows what we will get up to.
Whatever it is – it’s gonna be gorgeous. You already know.
Gidge is my favorite person in Second Life and among my favorites in my first life, too. So, it’s no surprise we sometimes think alike and dress alike. Our mutual love for this dress from Nylon Outfitters was unplanned, but you know, I thought about reshooting with a different color, but I changed my mind. I like the black one best, and really, it’s a case of great minds thinking alike. By the way, if you like this dress, get yourself over to Collabor88 now because it’s the last day.
I don’t like candy corn, but these critters crack me up. One of my favorite items from The Arcade this month. It’s amazing how they with their simplistic form still manage to express emotions. There’s some popcorn for all the drama from Lost Junction and a fun plastic table and stools from PLAAKA – all at The Arcade.
I knew exactly what aesthetic I was seeking when I went looking for a place to shoot yesterday. But then I got caught up in search and this place had “sex and death” in the description and I couldn’t resist.
I don’t know what I anticipated finding, but noodle shops and what seems to be a toy store of sorts wasn’t it. Continue reading →
