What’s Not To Love ?

My new home from Alouette comes with the huge wrap around porch of my RL dreams.   After I got pixel Gidge ready for her very packed day of shopping she decided that ordering some breakfast up was exactly in order.  She has her own mind most days. Luckily, I live on an island that has everything and it was nothing to get some coffee to go sent over and some waffles.

It makes me not really mind the storm rolling in for the day. Continue reading

Like A Room Without A Roof

I was going to go shopping for a new dining table, ok I WENT shopping for a new dining table. But then I was bored with everything and came home only to go shopping in my own inventory. I forgot I had this adorable cafe table from What Next. Yes, it’s probably two years old, but it’s still COMPLETELY adorable and so,  my big front porch now has a lovely outside dining area.

Now That Holiday Guests Are Gone

I was expecting various escorts, pimps and blingtards from SL holidays past to stop in and was ecstatic to find a new living room set from CHEEKY PEA at THE GARDEN which features a HIDEABED! Seriously – this comes in SO handy when your friends and relatives who still haven’t found mesh yet decide to spend the night! You just CLICK and it’s a bed. CLICK AGAIN and it’s a bed.

Makes a clean up a snap! Continue reading

The Holiday Home Tour – I’ll Start With Me!

I spent the better part of a week hunting the new and the awesome to decorate my house for this Christmas season. I have to admit I’m a little sad that the Arcade didn’t open in time for me to add some of the lovely things I’ve seen that are coming but eh, I’ll get them in what- 3 weeks when you can get in? :) Oh who am I kidding? I’ll totally get them at yardsales – tomorrow.

I am so excited about the holiday home tour. My mother and I used to always go to holiday home tours when I lived near her, it was a glimpse at a house I’d never have – kind of like day dreaming a little fantasy – and sharing it with your mom. But in SL we can all have whatever kind of house we want. I love to see how people express their holiday joy when they decorate. I hope you enjoy mine.

The living room is always the room I work on first as I consider it the room for entertaining and socializing. Plus it’s what you see first when you walk in the room.

Trompe Loeil has a really comfy holiday sofa and I combined it with some chairs from What Next, a pillow basket and coffee table from earlier releases of Trompe Loeil as well. Continue reading

So,Your Dinner Is Ready!

I had to do some last minute shopping at MY ATTIC before it closes, as well as Shoetopia, for the perfect hostess look for my Thanksgiving meal. I also cooked a turkey and made a huge meal, so I hope you come over and eat.

I’ll never finish this giant bird alone! Continue reading

Early Morning Bloggery

nov16_001

I woke up at 4:30 this morning. Why? Because my cat decided it was time for me to wake up and he knows exactly how to make that happen. He sits right on my chest with his paws on my throat and starts rubbing his nose on my nose. Of course, it’s the cutting off my air supply, not the cat kisses that wake me up. It works every time.

So I took some pictures hanging out at my house over by Gidge’s place. I was still tired so I laid down on the couch. Sideways, though, so Oscar could not cut off the air supply again.

Who me?

Now he lays on the floor looking all innocent, “Who me?” but I know very well what he is capable of.

Beige Patent Pumps Just Like Kate

I heard a radio show shortly before the Royal Wedding, talking about beige patent pumps. Beige patent pumps are apparently everything. Kate Middleton had been seeing wearing them at appearances, suddenly you had to have them. The morning shopping guide on the radio show (because this is now a thing apparently) went through and told us what brand Kate was wearing and since we obviously can’t afford those (commoners) told us where to get them priced in our (commoner) price range.

Luckily for us pixel girls, LVLE has come out with a gorgeous pair of beige pumps that fit the bill with gorgeous texturing that subtly shines.  We might not get to marry a prince, but we’ve got cute shoes so really, that’s probably good enough.

Pixel princes are a dime a dozen anyway, girls. Continue reading

Who Are You In Other Worlds?

I got to wondering, over my breakfast, what my SL friends are like in their other worlds? I don’t play a LOT of video games, but I do play World of Warcraft and I’ve created a cast of characters that, despite the lack of customization in that world, all have a BIT of Gidginess to them. I thought I’d show you mine, and hope that maybe for fun, you’d show me yours. Continue reading

Fameshed for The Arcade

It’s happened. The flurry of lindens stimulating the economy are flowing as everyone goes MAD collecting at THE ARCADE and picking up the amazing new releases in mesh at FAMESHED.

I thought the billiards dress from Trompe Loeil (The Arcade) might be a bit too masculine for my girly abode but no, I put some flowers and myself on it and it’s plenty girly. Cory Edo is mad for cute drawer pulls, these are adorable as well. Continue reading

Why Does The H & G Expo Make It SO Hard To Shop There?

I have now spent three days attempting to shop at the Home and Garden Expo to support Relay for Life. With all of the shenanigans with Ionic ripping RL tiny artists (seriously don’t even argue with me – that case is closed), I wanted to go and BE SUPPORTIVE of the event and charity.

And then I actually tried to go.

The first morning, I had like an hour. I found a slurl someone had posted and ended up in an area that was really not interesting. I had a little time to explore though, and didn’t feel like being “SHOP AND GET OUT” so I wandered. Then I crashed. Then, when I tried to go back, the sims were offline. All of them.

I asked on plurk and was told “Yeah that keeps happening.” I can’t validate that. But I know that for the rest of my log in time that day, they weren’t back.

The next day I had about 30 minutes, it was crunch time. I had a short list of things I REALLY wanted and creators I REALLY wanted to support. Lag. Ok, I know they’ll be lag. Lag. I ask – is there a list of slurls? I get point to THIS. This is not a list of slurls. This is a list of slurls to the SIMS. WHO IS ON WHAT SIM? HOW DO I GET THERE?

I also was shown a map I can’t blow up nor read. I tried to read the maps at the event but again they were so small I can’t read them. It seems like it SHOULD blow up so maybe that’s just my PC. Continue reading
