I love the Japonica Event and this round is no disappointment. There are things to eat, things to do and of course shopping for gorgeous items all around the sim.
Any event that has fun things to do I’m instantly going to love. For instance, I am thoroughly enjoying shooting the HELL out of this frog – also this duck. The only thing I might enjoy more would be if there were prizes for accuracy.
If you know me you know that food is one of my absolute obsessions on the grid, so this dessert café and coffee shop was an absolute must while I reviewed my shopping list. I’m trying not to buy the whole world but it’s a challenge when everything is so ridiculously cute.
Explore enough and you’re going to find some adorable vignettes at Japonica as well. I’m in love with these fishies.
After I spent most of my money and was out of anything resembling energy, I found a small restaurant on the sim and stopped in for some much needed dinner. As you can see I had a small friend who was very interested in my entrée. I can’t blame him – it WAS delicious!
Japonica is a gorgeous event – whether you’re shopping or just looking for a spot to shoot some fun photos (or grab a bite to eat). I highly recommend!
I’ve coveted my own orca for some time now. Imagine my surprise when JIAN offered up this beauty at the SL18B party this year. Was it 18? I forget. Anyway. This Orca is exactly what I needed to make swimming the waters off of Bellisseria safe. After all, who knows what great whites might lurk out there? I can count on DETH the Orca to swim out and eat them up if any show up to bother me.
I feel he is the perfect addition to my current menagerie.
Cats, dogs, beta fish, gold fish….orca.

There are people who will tell you that self care is going to the spa and paying a lot of money for various things to be slathered all over your body. I say FIE on that. FIE. I say self care is whatever restores your sanity. If that’s a glass of cheap red wine and a box of pizza and various pizza like items – then bring it on.
Aliana and I decided that was exactly what we needed tonight. She’s going to read me memes and other items of interest from the interwebs and we are going too just BE here at The Elms.
I’m super excited to remind you that Hair Fair is in full swing. I haven’t run the gauntlet YET but I will before it’s over. As ALWAYS Exile delivers gorgeous hair that is MUST have.
My typist just returned from a week’s vacation so I had to beg her to let me out. Letting me out involved a lot of shopping with some much deserved respite on the beach when it was over. Even when she’s not around, I’m pretty happy I have this quiet spot here to relax.
Are you ready for your Monday? Are big things ahead? I don’t know what my Monday holds but I’m excited and ready for it.
Good Morning lovelies. I have a delicious cup of hot coffee and it’s a great day. I love waking up on Bellisseria, I have to admit I’m going to be hard pressed to ever leave this spot. It’s a perfect, peaceful little world here and I’m eternally grateful for it. I have been strongly considering changing my house to a different model, but then that sounds like SO MUCH WORK I don’t know that I can be bothered. Do you ever get like that? I after all, it’s Sunday and I don’t want to DO anything I just want to luxuriate in the beach worlds of the grid.
And where better to do that than over at Rainbow Reef? I haven’t logged in for a couple of weeks and I’ve missed the free drinks and gorgeous views, not to mention the surfing and general great vibe of the place.
I threw on a crown and headed over. I hope my favorite bartender is working. I’m planning to make it a long, lazy afternoon of cold beverages and sun. Could there be a better Sunday? Maybe, but I’m too tired today to think of anything that would top it.
Bartender, let’s get this started.

I popped over to this London sim that is on the Destination Guide but found it gutted with divas striking poses all over the faux English square. Can’t so much as get a shot of a double decker bus without someone else there shooting – and truly – good for them.
I think it’s fun that the destination guide draws folks to places so we can experience what is lovely – it’s rather lovely to celebrate someone’s work this way!
Since I am here, there is no reason not to celebrate their success with a sweet – don’t you agree? I can’t decide between cupcake and macaron, however.
You might notice that I’m wearing the same hair again. Ever just FALL IN LOVE with a hair? Well that’s where I am. I decree all of Kavar’s hair has to be this amazing going forward – the bar has been set. This is so perfect. I don’t want to stop wearing it.
New head, new skin new hair. I have no complaints really.
I suppose I can deal with a Monday coming in. Maybe?

I’ve done a bit of wandering today. I couldn’t figure out why I was only bringing up some really lame locations from search. I love to just search random terms and see where I end up. It turns out my search wasn’t logged in properly and I was only bringing up G rated locations. There are so many amazing builds across the grid, I never know where I’m going to end up. This little shanty town offered a lovely waterfront view as well as some snacks and games.
It looks like amphibious plane is the best way to get here if you can’t teleport in. Adventure abounds in this spot.
I’ve had such a good time exploring this location. I love this bird. I kinda want it.
How has your week been going? I got some exciting secret news today. Maybe I’ll get to show you soon!
My beloved cousin Ghanima Uriza messaged me the other day after a long absence. She has started to dip her toe into the world of mesh and I guess I had not realized how long she’d been gone – the pixel world has changed so much since the last time we were able to chat.
She’s back at work creating her beautifully hand-painted textures that were the HALLMARK of Blueblood back in the heyday. I am so excited to get to share a little something she’s been working on.
It was so lovely to chat with her, to talk about our lives and how we are both in such a different place how with regards to how we embrace Grid Life. Neither of us are willing to allow it to run us anymore, instead we are excited to get to participate in the things we love on our own terms. For me it’s blogging, for her it’s creating.
I have to say, I’m excited to have another Uriza cousin back on the grid. We’re a rare breed.

I could NOT resist on this, the anniversary of IOF’s 13th year, to wear this freebie outfit I got at Shop n Hop for Christmas.
I love the Shop n Hop events. I roll through them like a kid in a candy store. I love finding new stores and grabbing freebies to see what folks are giving out, and buying things that I don’t need just because I want them.
I used to have a friend in SL who said Need wasn’t a word we used.
You might think I’m insulting this outfit, but I’m not. It’s well made. It comes with several color options and frankly, it’s cute! I like it. I was tickled to find it in the box as a gift, and felt like today was just the perfect day to wear it.
I am also wearing a skin from YS & YS whom I haven’t worn in a while and I love it. It’s a wonderful free gift also from Shop n Hop.
