June 13th, 2021 – Summer of 42

I finally got a decent graphic card, and I’m having so much fun taking pictures on Black Dragon! Also, I keep finding lovely things at Vintage Fair that I want to show you. Summer of 42 is the name of the sim where I took this pretty picture, you should check it out.

On Friday, the Glam Affair sim was down. It has since been fixed but the owners decided to leave the FLF item all week-end, so you still have time to go grab it. Rain is a new and very pretty face. If you have bought the BOM body skins fatpack of the latest Glam Affair tones (for Maitreya), you should have received an updated version with the new skin tone, Milk. If not, you can get it for only 50l$.

Seaside Dining To Start The Week

I decided to start my week dining at Rainbow Reef as they were good enough to have food now. I think this was very considerate of them and I do love shrimp so it’s a win all around.

I do recommend it. The table was seated with a couple of other folk but they seemed lost in their private conversation or perhaps just drifting off in their RL, having parked their pixel selves in paradise before they left.

A bit of cheesecake and some perfect black coffee. Really, it’s a perfect meal. I should dine here more often.

Today’s Theme Is Trashy Food

I realized when I got up that I didn’t have any soda at the house, and if I wanted it cold I needed to pop it in the fridge now so that at the end of the day an icy cold beverage would await. I ran out to a nearby bodega – which touts itself as adult RP. I managed to escape having to roleplay just to get my sodas though, lucky me.

But serious what is behind me. Are those giant legs?

It’s too early for this nonsense I tell you what.

I’m scared to go find out. God bless the ability to TP away…

August 30th, 2020 – Fairy tale

Once upon a time, I was a fae. I would roam the lands of a fantasy role play sim, wearing beautiful gowns and wings. But then sad things happened, I lost the love of my Slife, and left a land that no longer felt like home. I sometimes still miss the simple joy of fly-dancing with my beloved around the drum circle, surrounded by my best friends, Shay the fae, Maelenn the avariel, Eithne the dryad and Richy the dragon. So when I spotted the wings from Decoy at Collabor 88, it felt like a blast from the past, and I just had to put together an outfit with The Secret Store’s latest cutie, and find a whimsical place to take a picture.

Since I got my Lelutka Nova head, I’ve been wearing the same skin, as it was the only one I demoed that felt like me. Well I finally found another one, but, oh well, it’s yet again a skin from Lara Hurley. What can I say, her work is amazing.
I’d also like to tell you about a store I discovered not long ago, Simple Bloom. If you’re not satisfied with your eyebrows, or if you want to try something different, and get a unique look, go visit their store, they have hundreds of different eyebrows, mostly BOM, and they are extremely well made.

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.

May 10th, 2020

I grabbed this cute dress at the Fashionably Dead booth at Collabor88, and then I had to dig in my inventory to find pretty things to match. And boy did I find things! That skin, for instance, si from Clef de Peau, and believe it or not, I’d never worn it before. It was buried deep in a folder of “things to sort and maybe blog”, and I’m glad I found it. It’s very pretty and the freckles are a lovely option.

But let’s get back to that dress for a minute. It comes in a gazillion colours, but I was feeling in the mood for green. The HUD offers a lot of corset options, plain and embroidered, and the level of detail is stunning.

Delicate

Beautiful Lingerie – now at Shop & Hop from ALASKA METRO

I was originally compelled to run over to the Shop & Hop event because of the beautiful lingerie that Alaska Metro posted on Plurk. Lingerie in SL can be so run of the mill, so boring. There are only a few brands I’ll even bother looking at. But Alaska isn’t just a really creative, quality skinner, the clothing items she makes are always top notch.

Such as, this gorgeous piece.

She’s having an INSANE sale at her main store as well – at least I think it’s still going on. I urge you to RUN don’t walk to both Shop & Hop and her main store. I think I snagged this lingerie for less than 50L.

What are you waiting for?

You can run over to the Shop & Hop event by taking this taxi.

You might be tempted to just run to look for one thing, I suggest you get a cold drink and take a leisurely stroll around all four sims. Every booth (nearly) has a free gift of some sort and they’re not even all chokers (as you know the LAMEST of all free gifts IMO).

But seriously, there is MUCH to love.

Cooking for One

I just stick my hand right in, yes I do.

My house is finally coming together with the requisite Gidginess that is required of any place I call home. The ocean air really makes me feel like I’m home again, and I’m finally figuring out what things are going to be part of my 2020 SLife.

Even as the evening cools off, I love these big windows letting in the fresh air. Warm soup, warm tea, perfect evening.

Life in Bellisseria is quiet and lovely. Wish you were here.
