My Christmas Dream Come True

Well Aliana came back home just in time for Christmas and we had to make the most of what wandering the grid could bring us. After all, there was the SHOP AND HOP event to run through, a hunt at JUNK FOOD and a new head at Lelutka.

How can a couple of grid girls go wrong?

Shop and Hop once again provides a mind numbing amount of gifts and discounted items for the home and your pixel body.

We’re sporting sweaters from Arcane Spellcaster that comes with a hud with lots of pattern options. VERY Cute and free for the holidays. Aliana is also wearing a free pair of antlers she picked up from a brand called Antaya.

We’re both decked out in the NEW Lelutka gift head. HOW generous is this? I’m really in love with the head, not just as a back up or “Hey I’ll mix it up and wear this head sometimes” head. This is my new look I think – until the next thing.

Now let’s just celebrate the only thing in this photo I love as much as this new head – THIS AMAZING CAKE from Junk Food. Look, Little Debbie zebra cakes, white cakes whatever you call them are one of my favorite things on EARTH. When the Christmas tree versions come out it’s a joyous moment. Imagine my SCREAMING DELIGHT when Junk Food dropped this GIANT version for their Christmas HUNT. I ran through the hunt this morning like a LOONEY and I’ll give you one hint – it’s the LAST ONE.

That’s it – you’ve got to figure out the rest for yourself.

Now – let’s make it a great weekend!

Writing Hits a Wall

Does this ever happen to you? You have this great idea and then you sit down to let it out at the keyboard and you just stare off into space wondering what to say?

I struggled so much this weekend to put words together to share my thoughts and the words just denied me. I couldn’t get them out correctly. I knew what I wanted to say but how to say it? Just evaded me as is the norm lately.

I finally was able to find my inspiration and solved my quandary but it took so long. It used to feel so natural but lately it’s been a challenge.

Does this happen to everyone?

Someday the words will flow, and I won’t drive my fingers into the flesh of my arm. Someday.

Self Care In A Pizza Box

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.

Planning My Week

I decided to share off my ennui with some good old fashioned planning. I figured if I force myself to do things on a schedule It might help drive away some of the fatigue I seem to be belaboring under. I’m feeling rather excited so – this might just work! Who knows?

Fueled by pizza and pop, I’m ready to make this a productive week on the grid.

How’s your week shaping up?

Midweek Hurdle

We did it. We got past the midweek hurdle. Personally it was a struggle but I am struggling in general to ever get anything done these days. The ennui or laziness that seems to own me is pervasive. I’m trying to fight it but, the struggle is real.

I probably just need to go shopping.

Shopping fixes everything, right?

Monday Got Me Like…

I didn’t start off my day planning to be a lazy Monday, but I think my relaxing weekend was too relaxing. I couldn’t get myself motivated AT ALL so then, I just decided to do some day drinking.

Luckily, my favorite bar tender was on duty.

Back off Ladies and Gents, he’s MINE!

With Boots on hand to serve up the strongest drinks on the grid, I was assured of a perfect day drinking experience.

It was a Monday Martini kind of day, I thought, and truly, alliteration in your cocktail choices is a sign of civilization isn’t it? I think so.

Rainbow Rooms is a perfect spot for cocktails, day or night. Now, I think I need a nap.

In Quarantine on the Grid

Puzzles, Games and Bunnies with some Chinese takeout

I decided this past weekend to jump headfirst back in to my SLife, whereas prior I’ve been just dallying here and there. I’ve blasted my way through new brands, gotten out of my comfort zone, tried things I would NEVER have bothered with in the past.

In short – I finally feel at home again in this pixel world. I’m extremely excited about it.

One thing I decided to do while I am playing with new things is start dragging out OLD skins. One of those great features of BOM is the ability to make everything old new again. I have HUGE regrets that I trashed my old LEAGUE skins when applier HUDS became the rage. Why did I trash LEAGUE? I don’t know. I trashed a few brands, Curio, and some others, and my sadness that they are lost to me forever is huge.

One thing I learned, by dragging these skins out and slapping them on a mesh head via BOM is this. They did not age well. I would say 75% of my old skins are very OMG WTF WTF NO NO NO. It’s sort of like that. The colors are just off, or not current. The look is too harsh. Sometimes they don’t stretch across mesh properly and it’s all just wrong.

But every once in a while an old brand reminds me how I loved them, once upon a time. Long since gone is Tuli – that maker of delicate, lovely skin. An old friend once described Tuli as making the “most kissable lips”. I was a such a fan girl, once upon a time.

I will confess that this skin still has a lovely face, but it doesn’t “quite” work with mesh. The line between head and body I can’t seem to overcome it’s always JUST a bit wonky. The thing is though, this skin was never meant for mesh. Mesh wasn’t an itch in it’s daddy’s pants back when I got this skin. So I’ve pulled the old blogger cheat and slapped on a choker necklace and somewhat obscured this.

I promise you, I’ll do the same any time I wear it in the future. Don’t judge me. Wearing Tuli is like running in to an old friend you thought was gone forever.

Another aside, as I ramble a LOT on this Sunday morning, is that I discovered a pose store I really love. As a pose maker, I was always completely reticent to enter any pose shops or use ANYONE’S poses because I didn’t want to be accused of ripping off anyone’s work. Even long after I closed up shop, I still continued this habit and I feel like it’s been pretty limiting. I can’t even remember why I stumbled in to Secret Poses but their Chinese Take Out pose set completed my desire to be eating constantly in SL.

I am a huge fan, and am going to be shopping there more.

And now, it’s Sunday. Whatever should I do on a Sunday? Probably eat….

Dusk till Dawn with My Alt

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.

You Had Me at Free Pig

Free Gifts at SaNaRae do not disappoint

Well I wasn’t up to fighting the crowds for Black Friday craziness but I will tell you this, free pig from Schadenfreude at SaNaRae got me dressed.

In fact, I rolled around and picked up all of the gifts – there were some good ones! I did a wee bit of shopping too, but not toooo much, I’m a girl on a budget.

My other favorite gift are these adorable glasses – they have a snow ON or snow OFF option, and several texture choices. Very thoughtful, fun gift!

Lipgloss so shiny an intergalactic princess would envy

I’m still riding the BakesOnMesh train pretty hard. Today I’m wearing skin from TULI – that vintage skinner who doesn’t create any more. I kinda love being back in to my old skins – I’m so glad i never trashed most of them.

Have you tried BoM yet? It’s life changing.
