Decorating Is Life

I am all kinds of ready for Christmas. I’ve got trees out, I’ve been visiting Advent Calendar gifts, I’ve been doing ALL THE THINGS.

All of them. I’ve even managed to get quite busy on some serious decorating for when I have company this Christmas. I’m apparently expecting quite a crowd.  Continue reading

Entertaining In Style

I’m ready for guests. I’ve already had some visitors and they ate up all my treats so I had to get up early today to get ready for today’s guests!

Have you been over to The Arcade’s special Halloween round!?!? This special October issue is full of spooky fun for your Halloween in SL!  I for one am ready to embrace the darkness and all it’s glory for the next few days.

I probably won’t eat all of these cupcakes before guests arrive. Probably. I mean maybe one.

Or two.

Or one of each.

I’m not sure if I can control myself – I guess visitors will have to get here soon or they will be gone! I hope I find my self control soon.

I’m ready for guests! Are you coming over? You’re Invited!

Settled In

Well made myself a proper breakfast and have my plans for today. I like to spend Sundays in some combination of busy fun and relaxation. It’s a perfect day for baking and relaxing – which I’ve already started while I eat my delicious breakfast.

What do you like to bake as fall moves in? I’m a traditionalist, at the first hint of cool air I’m ready for apple everything and the pumpkin spice.

Maybe that makes me basic. I could not possibly care. Not even if you paid me. Well, I might PRETEND to care if you paid me.  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

Weekend Get Away

I decided that what would make the perfect weekend would be to get away to the lake for a while. Trompe Loeil has released the Deja house which frankly is perfect for LAKE or BEACH and since I live on the ocean, I opted for lake! The open view across the front lets me sit and gaze at the lapping waters, and just relax without a care for a few days.

It’s perfect.

I’m excited for a few days off from my 2nd Reality. I’m going to be looking for adventure and fun, hopefully I’ll find some!

11 Years and Counting

My eleventh rezz day came and I had no plans. I wasn’t even bothered by this, but when I was surprised with a shopping trip to the Frou Frou event I have to admit, I was fairly tickled.  Sasy took me around and we pondered if her buying me this much lingerie meant she was my GF.

Probably so.

After a ridiculous yet wonderful spree, I dropped some furniture down at the new house and settled in for the night. I’d picked up the perfect lounging pajamas from Miss Chelsea – so I feel like this was a complete win overall.

Now, it’s a new day. What to do first? Continue reading

Change of Heart Change of House

I’m a huge fan of Trompe Loeil houses. I tend to get in one house, however, and stay it in for quite a while. I decorate like mad and I just can’t stand having to start over again. I liked this winter lodge Trompe Loeil released recently, but from my first glace I thought “Oh it’s not for me but I’ll blog it.”

Then I stood inside it.

Sometimes the magic is in the light. Sometimes the view is what takes your breath away and you realize that if you woke up every day with the sun pouring into these windows, you’d feel the warmth of that pixel ball even though such a thing is impossible. Continue reading

Tick, Tock. Arcade O’Clock.

Tick, Tock, It's Soon Arcade O'Clock
The Arcade opens in just over three hours. December if my favorite month for The Arcade. The holidays seems to inspire such whimsy and grace. Also, since everything is No Copy for trading, it’s a great place to buy gifts. My outfit comes from Collabor88 items (except the fun candycane tights that were a Christmas gift from Alaska Metro last year. Sorry, I am an evil blogger, but not totally evil, they are on marketplace.
Tick, Tock, It's Soon Arcade O'Clock
Some beautiful Christmas decorations are part of Trompe Loeil’s fabulous Advent Set at The Arcde. Every year, Trompe Loeil’s Advent Calendar is one of the decor highlights of the season.

So Much Sunday

They say you shouldn’t drink alone and I suppose that’s true, I can tend to get maudlin or too happy or sometimes both things depending on the time of day.  My Sunday had a lot of shopping and some visiting planned but I only got to the shopping, so I decided to stay in and have some dinner and tv alone.

It felt like a great plan at the time.

Halfway into the bottle of red though I just began to feel like I’d wasted a day and maybe I should’ve gotten more done. Who knows our SL time runs so fast, it’s difficult to get to everything, or heck to anything some days, with all the body switch and head switching I do.

Sigh, I think I wasted my day. Isn’t it a terrible feeling? There was only one solution for it. Watch movies and cry.  Continue reading

You Said Wood

Keithia is the new tower and bed from Trompe Loeil and I thought perhaps there was a tale about a damsel and a tower but I couldn’t find one online. I did find that the name means wood.

At that I began to giggle, because well it’s a big tall tower, and wood. I’m a 12 year old boy sometimes, I swear. Continue reading
