Alaska Metro has a new hunt out and there are five items at her main shop and five over at YE OLD Free Dove. I was so excited for a chance to do a fun hunt for pretty things, it’s been a while since I have run the gauntlet on one.
They are SO easy to find, just a bit of looking will suss them all out.
Just in time for that upcoming red and pink holiday, eh?

I headed over to Nutmeg to do a little shopping and wandered around the property a while. I found this trolley that has seen better days and and errant moon.
I’m wandering the grid today in search of the chair that matches my new desk and it’s apparently not out at the main store and this is my fault for not having bought it when I bought the desk. Why did I think that my 10454050 desk chairs I already own would work? Why? Because I was being cheap that’s why.
So now I must buy the chair not only because it matches but also because it matches.
I tried on one of Exile’s lovely short styles so I could show off my silly bear earrings I picked up at the SL17B birthday bash.
Brunette Gidge is liking the change. Maybe Brunette for a while? Hard to say. Gidge does like change.
I found a new to me shopping opportunity while sifting through blogs last night to figure out where to shop. Seraphim opened “The Outlet – a Seraphim Infinity Event” about a week ago it looks like, and it’s just a 50% off room from designers you love and some you don’t know. I really loved this as it gave me an opportunity to pick up some deals, as well as try out a brand I don’t know.
I was glad to pick up cute hair from Wasabi Pills on a discount – I mean, SCORE but I also picked up a few things to try out new brands. I was excited about trying this brand Apple Blossom because their textures were new and fresh, and I felt really inspired by them. I was really disappointed though that these straps are completely wonky and stand a couple of inches ABOVE my shoulders. I was glad I just paid 75L for it – I will avoid this brand in the future. I don’t not recommend this one to pick up if you hop over there.
I pulled out some old bangles from Zaara that I used to adore and painted up my face with goodies from Alaska Metro. I feel like this is what our mothers meant by TOO MUCH MAKEUP don’t you? I don’t even care.
The hair clips are fun – but I don’t know if I ever figured out how to work them or just got lucky repeatedly clicking. Knowing me, it’s the latter.
Happy Monday girls. Let’s make it a great week!

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 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.
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.

The Tree is up – the harpsichord is playing a lovely sarabande and I’m really settling in to my new place. It’s brand new – no one ever lived in it before me – kind of a fun idea. I lived over at Meadowbrook and I’m sure it had previous tenants – it had that noob smell. But these Victorians are fresh off the griddle. I’m liking this huge space and beautifully landscaped parks and streets.
What I’d like to see next are towns, make us a little market, a little church and a post office. Complete the narrative of these little neighborhoods with beautifully curated places for us.
What do you think should be next? Mass transit? Little villages? What would help complete the narrative of our communities for YOU?
My second night in my home finds me not sleeping on the sofa but comfy in the bed of the moment, I might have to get out something else. I’ve got too many beds, I’m not sure which one I want to use.
I’m so excited that fall is finally here. Sway’s offers up gorgeous pumpkin offerings for your fall decorating.
I had been wanting something a little different for pumpkins this year. I am hoping we have a lot of fun Halloween decor on the Gangway. Do you suppose we will? I still haven’t met any neighbors. Maybe my whimsical pumpkins will attract some!
I hope I don’t go too overboard this year. I think I did too much last year. I’ll try not to add the shrieking banshee. Try. It’s a while till Halloween though, no promises.
Well I’m definitely not done, but this is some serious progress, I have to say.
October is coming! I am ready!

I’m slowly getting settled here on the Gangway and I have to admit, I’m more than a bit tickled to be able to paint my walls and outside of my house at a simple touch. POOF new color. How much does that amaze me? And why hasn’t everyone been doing this with their houses forever? Now make it so I can paint each wall individually and I’ll be happy.
I’ve been trying to wrap my mind around Tuesday things all morning, and then I realized – It’s Wednesday!
Wednesday of course means I should wander and find something new. I hopped in my most perfectly Gidgey car and hit the road. I’ll go find a cafe, grab some coffee and pastry and set off to see what’s out there in the world that’s good today. Sounds like a plan, doesn’t it?

I spent my Saturday in the wilds of Africa, travelling from savannah to jungle and beyond, in search of lovely places to behold. I wasn’t disappointed.It’s funny how little things can delight in our little pixel world.
I slipped around this build in a comfy, breezy gift from Neve – that ever dependable creator of staple items.I was surprised that a gift came with a hud to vary up the print but it did. That’s just classy and quality. I love creators who give away free gifts that are actually NICE. It says a lot about who they are as a person and a business owner.
These damn monkeys are following me everywhere.
In addition to this breezy summer dress, I’m wearing some perfect slip on Mary Jane’s from Ingenue called Marlo. They are a perfect addition for cute but casual days.
Well, I’m not having a romantic gondola ride, but I really did love being my own gondolier on this lovely water tour of the place. I love little gems like this, it was a great way to spend my afternoon.
Now, I’m going to make a last run at the ARCADE and be at peace with what I didn’t get. What are you up to today?
