Summer Kick Off

It’s a three day weekend in the US and I’m celebrating by spending some time doing a little vacay at a beach that is not my own beach but a different beach so that’s somehow better, right?

You know I love an all inclusive style resort that constantly feeds me.

I mean, beautiful scenery and nonstop snacks? Count me in.

I do recommend this beverage – it’s blue. Blue beverages are best.

If you need me, I’ll be right here.

Unicorny

I was feeling a bit weird so set out for an adventure SL style. I’m a unicorn, at least for today.

Maybe I’m really just a partial unicorn, I mean have the horn but really, I didn’t get the rest. Maybe my story is that I’m 1/8th unicorn.

This is why I don’t role play, the backstory bit is just annoying to me.

The glasses have cats not unicorns. Gotta shake it up sometimes.

Rainy Days and Milky Ways

I found this really interesting sim with lots of great blogging spots, lovely vignettes to spend time in, either living your SL or just blogging it, and I admit I was really taken in by it. The rain particularly, from a distance, had a calming, almost soothing effect.

However standing in it was a big old mess and you couldn’t see anything.

Looking at it through the windows though? Perfection.

On the same sim I found a beautiful night view of the milky way. I spent so much time here just staring in wonder that I think part of my brain forgot that this is just a picture and not the real thing.

Looking on the Milky Way with my own eyes is a dream of mine. I want to go to a place that’s perfect dark and let me look into the galaxy. I’m not sure what I expect to see there, but it’s something I need to do.

I took a picture of these doggos in the rain, which really enchanted me but I couldn’t get it any clearer than this – the rain was nuts!

All in all, I do recommend visiting.

Uptown Girl

I headed out to the city today to do a little shopping and maybe grab a bite somewhere. How’s your Saturday?

While I do have a host of vehicles I love to drive around, nothing beats the subway for getting around when you’re in a big metro area. And in my pixel life, no one is pooping on the floor during my ride so that’s a plus!!

I’m hitting the town in this adorable new headband from SparkleSkye for the Saturday sale. It comes in vivid or pastels and it’s really just too cute to pass up. I hope you hop over there to get it.

Conversation Hearts

I have a deeply etched love for creators who tell you what the free gift is that they’re giving away at events. Today I’m celebrating three of these champions from Shop & Hop who pulled me in with their cute offering.

Why does it matter so much what your free gift is? Well, technically it doesn’t. But I don’t want to pick up a bunch of random stuff, honestly. I look at free gifts as a chance to check out your work for free, and I do go back and patronize those folks whose work I like. No one owes me a free gift, and I do truly appreciate them. But those champs who show what the items are – well you’re the true MVP folks.

These conversation heart jeans are a great example. While I was wandering through this booth, I saw them and my first thought was “Man, I wish those were the free gift!” and holy shit they were!

Are the seams perfect down the side? NO. It was FREE I don’t really care that they don’t dork around with the texture to match it up in this instance. The waist and the button, fly etc look fine and honestly it’s conversation heart jeans – so cute. I’m not too precious to sweat the seam on this.

My sweater is a little fuzzy but I like to think that’s because it’s cashmere. Right?

Free shoes, shirt and pants courtesy of find folks at Shop & Hop. I need to finish my run through it tomorrow to see what other goodies can be found!

Back to Exploring

I heard there was a new place to check out for wine and treats and had to make my way over there. When I landed, I was a little perplexed that the only way down was via skylift. I wasn’t really dressed for it, but I did have panties on so no roaming werewolves were getting a show and I decided to just go for it and see what happened.

It’s a really adorable little village, and I was able to pick some things up while I was there. Now you might see that alpha collision with the window and my hair. There are people who want to act like that is some sort of photo catastrophe. You know what that is? That’s what it looks like in SL. This will be your experience too most likely and you aren’t going to die because of it. I suppose if you have some photoshop foo and you wanna try to fix it well that’s cool and good for you, but I don’t and I don’t think it’s wrong to show things on the grid the way you are going to experience them.

This rant brought to you by memories of someone who once ranted at me about a photo that had alpha halos.

Other parts of this build were also beautiful, although strange when coupled with the city build. I guess I need to maybe read what it’s supposed to be or something. Maybe.

I don’t know. I got some wine, that was really my goal. Now – time to get back to the skylift!!

In Candytopia It’s All Sweet

Candytopia feels like I place I should have been before now but somehow I’ve failed to go. I made amends for this today by going and actually even checking out their fun game. It’s like the worlds biggest candy land and you can walk through all of the beautiful lands as you progress – and even get a treat here or there.

You know I was loving that!

There are treats and snacks along the way and everything would meet Willie Wonka’s criteria of being edible, eatable – YOU CAN EAT IT!

At the end of course I was the winner as I was playing alone but that didn’t stop me from sitting in the King’s throne for a bit.

How’s your Sunday?

Comfy Shoe Exploring

My friend’s sim Aurelias was recently reopened with an entirely new build and it’s a sweet little blogger paradise with all of it’s wonderful details and scenery.

It’s a lovely place just to BE as well. I could just spend time here being me and enjoying the scenery honestly. It’s so comforting to be in a space that feels so good to be in.

What I found really magical was the level of detail that was put into creating this build.

Look at these adorable little mice in the clock. This is the kind of just wonderful detail that makes this sim worth every little inch of discovery time.

They also built a rainy swampy area that is really spectacular. I’ve been a big fan of any kind of rain in SL forever but clearly it’s improved over time. It’s a great look.

Christmas Fries

I’ve been missing from the grid for several weeks due to an internet issue that was blocking me from accessing. We got an upgrade and suddenly I couldn’t connect. Annoying, let me tell you.

But eventually I landed back in my house and found Christmas in full swing which means it’s time to decorate and get SUPER happy. I love Halloween but right behind that is the wintery joy that Christmas brings, even to my island paradise.

I picked up this hilarious Elf Fries from Junk Food. It’s the time of year for the silliest of treats and you know I’m here for it.

What’s your methodology for Shop & Hop? Do you go to it? I have a strict rule of always walking in the same direction with either my left or right shoulder facing the shops. I just keep going until I finally get back to wherever I started – if I can remember where that is, of course.

I messed up the other day and when I logged in I chose to log in at home, which meant I had no idea where I’d left off. Oooops. It’s so overwhelming and huge. I’m also not a fan of booths with too much brown. Bad textures are bleh but omg when everything is brown I’m just so done. I know that’s probably silly, but we all have our thing, don’t we?

Now I post this pic with lots of brown because my likes are duplicitous and without reason.

But besides that, I’m back! YAY!
