Vacation Home – Acquired

For a long time I’ve wanted a second home and this past week one availed itself and I could not resist. Just a place to get away on the weekends and relax with no cares – who could resist? So when a houseboat opened up near many awesome people I couldn’t say no.

I’m still moving in and decorating. I didn’t really think through my dining options when I moved in so I’ve ordered delivery of donuts. This is perfect, as far as I’m concerned. I’ll spend a lovely evening here on the water, full of donuts, and then return back to the world tomorrow.

It’s a good plan.

I have nowhere to go and all day to get there.

Run to Eat, Eat to Run

I’m out for an early morning run today on Bellisseria and I couldn’t decide on what to eat. I had a serious hankering for junk food so luckily HANGRY was all ready for me and I could take it along. Two burgers? NO problem. I’m sure the sugary, caffeinated goodness in the bottom of the cup was EXACTLY what I needed for a great workout today.

I’m wearing new workout gear from Cinnamon&Chai and I gotta say, these boobs needed a good bra. I’m so glad one was available – I’d smack my eyes without!

Hope your Sunday brings you fun and awesomeness, and maybe a burger or two as well. Happy Sunday lovelies!

The Alaska Metro Free Dove Hunt

Alaska Metro has a new hunt out and there are five items at her main shop and five over at YE OLD Free Dove. I was so excited for a chance to do a fun hunt for pretty things, it’s been a while since I have run the gauntlet on one.

They are SO easy to find, just a bit of looking will suss them all out.

Just in time for that upcoming red and pink holiday, eh?

What the Goat ?

I was asleep. I know it’s early for a Friday but it was a bitch of a Friday, I was done. I just wanted to sleep and kick off the weekend tomorrow. I just needed a break. I wanted sleep and oblivion.

It was then I heard it. I heard that bleet, this sound – I could not figure it out. I laid there and tried to ignore it. But eventually I couldn’t and had to get up to figure out what was happening.

SHE BROUGHT HOME A GOAT.

OH MY GOD.

I don’t even know what to say.

I do NOT approve.

Living with Alts is rough ya’ll.

Aliana doesn’t think she did anything wrong. She lives here too!

The goat situation is going to have to be figured out when I’m not so tired.

Having roommates is hard ya’ll.

32 Chocolat

I headed over to Nutmeg to do a little shopping and wandered around the property a while. I found this trolley that has seen better days and and errant moon.

I’m wandering the grid today in search of the chair that matches my new desk and it’s apparently not out at the main store and this is my fault for not having bought it when I bought the desk. Why did I think that my 10454050 desk chairs I already own would work? Why? Because I was being cheap that’s why.

So now I must buy the chair not only because it matches but also because it matches.

I tried on one of Exile’s lovely short styles so I could show off my silly bear earrings I picked up at the SL17B birthday bash.

Brunette Gidge is liking the change. Maybe Brunette for a while? Hard to say. Gidge does like change.

Except when she doesn’t.

Open for Trouble

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!

Friends and Alts

I confess I also ran over and grabbed a GENUS head to give it a try. I DO like it. Some folks have some complaints about the HUDS etc – but for me, just to try out a new brand, it was pretty pleased. I am not sure if she’s gonna be PERMAGIDGE but, indeed, I do like it.

My typist has been basically besieged by the chaos of pandemic life, and hasn’t been around to take dictation – pity I know. I’ve had so many adventures she’ll never know about. That’s probably for the best though, isn’t it?

I hope the DMCA situation is settled without much drama and soon as I like this brand and would gladly explore a new head from them!

I do’t have the eyes quite right yet

I am struggling with the eyes a bit. I don’t like what came with it they are wonky and so I’ll have to keep working. Eyes can be tricky which I find annoying. I love this hair and might have to get this cut in the AFTER time. Someday – when salons are open again!

I liked the head so much that I ran out and got it on my new roommate my Alt. Is she my sister? Maybe. I need to keep working on her.

Coffee with my new Roomie

Now I hear Akeruka has a head I need to pick up! These deals are the best!

How is your quarantine going? My typist just said she’s going to start making more time for me. Good for her.

At Home Again, Naturally

The Tree is up – the harpsichord is playing a lovely sarabande and I’m really settling in to my new place. It’s brand new – no one ever lived in it before me – kind of a fun idea. I lived over at Meadowbrook and I’m sure it had previous tenants – it had that noob smell. But these Victorians are fresh off the griddle. I’m liking this huge space and beautifully landscaped parks and streets.

What I’d like to see next are towns, make us a little market, a little church and a post office. Complete the narrative of these little neighborhoods with beautifully curated places for us.

What do you think should be next? Mass transit? Little villages? What would help complete the narrative of our communities for YOU?

My second night in my home finds me not sleeping on the sofa but comfy in the bed of the moment, I might have to get out something else. I’ve got too many beds, I’m not sure which one I want to use.

For now, I’m content.

Pumpkin Time Arrives

Pumpkins from Sway’s

I’m so excited that fall is finally here. Sway’s offers up gorgeous pumpkin offerings for your fall decorating.

I had been wanting something a little different for pumpkins this year. I am hoping we have a lot of fun Halloween decor on the Gangway. Do you suppose we will? I still haven’t met any neighbors. Maybe my whimsical pumpkins will attract some!

I hope I don’t go too overboard this year. I think I did too much last year. I’ll try not to add the shrieking banshee. Try. It’s a while till Halloween though, no promises.

This hair from Exile is a fun surprise from the back. So pretty.

Well I’m definitely not done, but this is some serious progress, I have to say.

October is coming! I am ready!

Happy little Linden home.
