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 went outside to get set up for my cookout/pool party today and discovered this off the coast. The Jolie Rouge is up, so that’s a bit concerning to me. They continued sailing onward around the tip of the coast and heading toward Bloodroot. I feel like it’s very likely that is where they were headed with a name like that. Don’t you?
Just a simple affair today with lots of sun and food. I’m going to have to get Aliana to change her hair when Cajsa finally gets back on the grid regularly. Two redheads would be too confusing. But she’s my Alt Bestie that’s for sure. I keep thinking I will make her a proper bedroom – it can almost be like she really lives here! Poor girl. I never let her go many places.
It’s hot and sweaty today. A true traditional summer kick off kind of day. I should have invited over more people but then I’m never good at being around when other people are having things. I should work on that.
I picked up a new pool from the Stay at Home Club – that is a great free pick up run don’t walk. I also got us both a new swimsuit for the day. Free is my favorite price.
I hope that your Memorial Day weekend was reverent to those lost but that your time spent with family and friends was fully of love and sunshine.
Happy Monday girls.

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.

It’s a lazy Sunday on Juicy, exactly the way I like it. Fog is rolling in from the sea, and if this were a horror movie that would mean that soon death and destruction would be following. Perhaps I’d find a pink scooter to escape to the sanctuary of STELLAR or JUICY SHAPES, a place where the monsters could not reach me.
You would know that the monsters were approaching when you heard ” /99 blingoff” in local chat. Continue reading →
So, last Monday, I spent the best part of my day setting up for Fantasy Faire. I have OCD so you can imagine how having everything in the exact right spot is vital to me. Turns out, Alia Baroque’s gorgeous sim, Aetherea, suffers from an illness that the Linden are unable to identify (they find it “interesting”) and the sim isn’t working properly. On Saturday we were asked to please set up out most important vendors on a mini Aetherea, and this morning, I woke up to a notecard telling me to copy my whole set up to a mirror sim. I had a complete meltdown. Due to ONE item that appeared to be no copy (and that I only identified when I was almost done), I had to move my items pretty much one by one over to the new sim. I have to say, if it weren’t for a fellow fairelander and Alia’s impeccable work, I would have lost it. Anyway, now that I’m done, I can finally relax with a blog post.

I don’t have a lot of fears and phobias. In fact, I can assuredly say my list of these things is very short. But one thing that I struggle with is the horror show that is OCTOPUS. This creature of the sea is one of the few recurring childhood nightmares that I can recall. I’m told it’s probably because of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. I have not bothered to watch this movie to verify this fact, however. If it is – I don’t want to know. Continue reading →
I stopped by Groenland today for a short visit. Most of the mass of Greenland is ice, but not on this sim. I guess it’s in one of the areas where the ice has been melting. It reminded me of “Rotten Ice” an excellent article in Harpers by Gretel Ehrlich. It seemed appropriate during the cold snap affecting much of America which prompted the popular-vote-losing President to show he does not know the difference between climate and weather. Sadly, far too many politicians don’t know the difference or they pretend not to know. Sometimes it’s hard to believe they are that ignorant, then I listen to Louis Gohmert and realize there’s no such thing as not too ignorant.
One of my favorite things about NYU is that they usually release as separates and the lovely camisole and lace skirt released at faMESHed are true to form. I love separates because it’s fun to mix and match. The pieces come with multiple colors selected by HUD.
I can’t stop trying on shoes. SHOETOPIA is once again providing amazing options and new shoes for all tastes from casual to kink and every flavor in between. I’ve been standing about my house for days just trying on shoes. It’s a poor blogger girls cross to bear I tell you.
Ok who am I kidding, it’s flipping amazing. SHOES SHOES SHOES SHOES. I love events that focus solely on one thing. I’d go to an EYEBROW fair I swear to god. Continue reading →
