Beautiful Lingerie – now at Shop & Hop from ALASKA METRO

I was originally compelled to run over to the Shop & Hop event because of the beautiful lingerie that Alaska Metro posted on Plurk. Lingerie in SL can be so run of the mill, so boring. There are only a few brands I’ll even bother looking at. But Alaska isn’t just a really creative, quality skinner, the clothing items she makes are always top notch.

Such as, this gorgeous piece.

She’s having an INSANE sale at her main store as well – at least I think it’s still going on. I urge you to RUN don’t walk to both Shop & Hop and her main store. I think I snagged this lingerie for less than 50L.

What are you waiting for?

You can run over to the Shop & Hop event by taking this taxi.

You might be tempted to just run to look for one thing, I suggest you get a cold drink and take a leisurely stroll around all four sims. Every booth (nearly) has a free gift of some sort and they’re not even all chokers (as you know the LAMEST of all free gifts IMO).

But seriously, there is MUCH to love.

Cooking for One

I just stick my hand right in, yes I do.

My house is finally coming together with the requisite Gidginess that is required of any place I call home. The ocean air really makes me feel like I’m home again, and I’m finally figuring out what things are going to be part of my 2020 SLife.

Even as the evening cools off, I love these big windows letting in the fresh air. Warm soup, warm tea, perfect evening.

Life in Bellisseria is quiet and lovely. Wish you were here.

At Home Again, Naturally

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.

For now, I’m content.

Bathing Is Requisite

So there is an article rolling around the internet written by someone who alleges not to have bathed for a really long time. Thematically the article is trying to say that our western obsession with bathing is unfounded.

NO. This is lies. 

While you might not need to be one of those people who showers twice or three times a day, please don’t think that if you roll around 3-4 weeks unbathed that the rest of us don’t notice. WE NOTICE. For the love of God, wash. WE NOTICE.

There are people who own animals who don’t think their house smells like animals. There are people who live by rivers who don’t think that the outside smells like dank river. 

There are all untruths, brought to you by the fact that you have gone noseblind.

In my pixel world, I never have to worry about these things yet I do observe the appropriate rituals and customs – simply so that my mind is ready for the day. I like the preparation of getting ready to go out in to the world, pixel or not.  I’m worried about the person who wrote that article and how they’re going about in their world, unaware of the horror show they are inflicting on others.

I mean, the smell. My GOD the smell.

The Thames smells a bit though. Nothing to be done about that.

Happy Sunday girls.

What Was I Doing Anyway

I have absolutely no idea.

I mean, I was probably doing something when I logged out on Christmas eve. But two months have passed and I’m afraid I’m at a loss for what it was I was doing. 

I seem to have dressed for an intimate encounter. I wonder if I had a date? Probably not. My husband would disapprove.  

I’ve been gone so long I got kicked out of two groups. I wonder if I liked those groups? I don’t even know what they were. 

I don’t know what 2019 holds for Gidge. But what I do know is, I missed this place and this fun. 

My friend Putrid said I look like I’m ready for a spanking in this get up. MAYBE I AM GIRL STOP JUDGING ME.

Maybe this year I smoke.

Let’s see what 2019 is going to be. I am feeling pretty good.

Today I’m wearing:

27/07/2018 – The Heat Goes On…

As my UK friends complain about a 22°C “heat wave” (71°F), and another one in Arizona tells me it’s in the hundreds F where she lives, I, somewhere in the middle, struggle to sleep and suffer next to the fan all day. Anyone telling me global warming isn’t real must be up for an earful! Anyway, I am slowly going through the lovely things I haven’t had the chance to show you, and here are a few of them.

I’m so behind in my blogging… I have to admit I’ve been binge watching Elementary and it’s kept me away from SL these past days. Anyway I’m back with a mint themed post… Lots of pretty things from past rounds of C88 and Fifty Linden Fridays, that should now be back in stores at their regular prices, but still pretty.

06/06/2018 – Vintage Fair – Part 2

I don’t get the smoking in SL. I’m a smoker in RL (well not at the moment for baby bump reasons) but I never got the appeal for cigarettes in SL. My avatar is a better version of me, smoother skin, finer features, perkier boobs… I can play with piercings and tattoos at times because, unlike in real life, they can be removed quickly and painlessly, and obviously she’s a non-smoker. But when I unpacked this cigarette with mouthpiece from Dreamcatcher I knew I just had to show you. It comes with poses but I used another pose pack, also from Vintage Fair, that’s called Moonlight and Martinis, and includes a cigarette too, as well as a glass of… Martini! As usual, you’ll find all the credits after the pictures!

Last Day of Vacation Blues

I ordered room service last night and fell asleep without eating it. Nice, right? Luckily my all inclusive resort includes meals brought in, so I know there will be something waiting for me downstairs. I’ve missed breakfast though. This rainy weather just tells me to sleep and sleep, so I did.

Yes, it’s definitely lunch time.

I wonder how many people they think are here? Anyone want to come help me eat all this?

It’s a perfect day to relax and do a lot of nothing. I’ve got a good book and some delicious treats. I might even get some post cards sent out – like a proper vacationing adult might.  Continue reading
