Oh hi! Sorry you’re catching me like this, I just took a long, relaxing bath and now I’m enjoying a nice cup of Pumkin Spice Latte. What do you mean, too early in the season? I’ve been waiting for this since february, I’m so ready for Autumn to start!

I like Sunday to be a low key day. I want to be comfortable, nibble on delicious food and just be at peace as I prepare for the week ahead. That was me today to a T.
I think that your home on the grid needs to be a haven, a real place of peace. I don’t want to just exist on a platform but I guess if that is what you love that’s cool too. I just want to be surrounded in my world and make it complete – pink cat and all.
Sometimes though, I end up doing double work and after having shot this outfit in my beautiful bedroom I forgot all about it and shot it elsewhere. Oh well, at least I’m cute?
I’m a huge fan of this silly eyeliner I bought. It is totally cute.
Now, I’m trying to be ready for Monday. How are you doing? Are you ready for it?
Don’t mind my silly alpha halos. Sometimes you just gotta not care.

When one starts sorting their inventory, one of two things can happen : either one finds adorable things that perfectly match one another, or one gets lost in the neverending mess and ends up hours later, bald, with mismatched head and body skin, green lips, purple skirt, a flip-flop on one foot and a ski boot on the other, holding a penis thrower from circa 2008. Let’s be honest, the odds of the first happening are not good.
Today, however, a miracle happened. I was going through an old folder and stumbled upon that very cute head band from Chocolate Atelier, and it was going perfectly with my hair, cute earrings from Euphorie, and so on and so forth…
The only thing I couldn’t seem to find was make-up, mostly because most of what I own (a lot) isn’t made for EvoX. So I went to Shiny Stuffs and found exactly what I needed.

I don’t know if you know that, but on week-ends there a lot of sales all over the grid. Today I went shopping…
Have you seen those adorable sneakers? They’re only 60l$, this week-end only, for Happy Week-End. They come with a full HUD that allows you to customise everything! 60l$ for a fatpack of shoes, I say yes! Get them at the CULT mainstore.

Or is it Bellisserian? I don’t really know. But I do know that it’s a perfect refuge after a long week. I picked up new chairs and and a new camper cooler and I couldn’t be happier with how this evening is shaping up.
I’ve got the grill going, cold drinks and popsicles. Don’t tell me it’s not summer. As far as I’m concerned, it’s here.
I’ve got a cold drink for you, if you want to stop by.
Isn’t that camper cooler the cutest? It’s from What Next! You need one!

The funny thing is, I practically always fatpack what I buy, and yet, you’ll mostly see me wearing red. Not sure why. I keep thinking I’ll wear other colours, and never do. I should probably start saving money and only get the red one, but chances are, I won’t. Anyway, I put together this cute outfit with pieces from Blueberry, and figured I might as well show it to you.

I had an inauspicious landing at SL17B as the landing point i chose dropped me right in the middle of some pool inside a building of some sort. It never rezzed to the point that I could figure out if it was a temple, or some sort of memorial or what it was I was trapped in. I finally managed to climb out, irritated to say the least but as always, I wanted to love SL17B.
It’s like the sims on SL17B were planned and put together by people who never once had to plan or lay out an event. There is some sort of joyous “cram everything together and who cares how it looks” planning that seems to go on. What this ends up meaning for us mortals not rocking the greatest gaming computer is that it is lag hell, and rendering hell. Is that a rocket ship? Is that a rock? Is that a cyclops? I’ll never know. It never rezzed.
It’s hard to put down the amazing and inspired vignettes our fellow citizens make though. There’s so much joy and creativity, little activities scattered through out to make you smile and let you enjoy the view. Sometimes maybe it’s ok if things aren’t perfect, if you can still enjoy the fun of it.
I stumbled in to a poetry cafe, where we were invited to sit and then touch the photo of the poet we were interested in. I was handed a copy of Maya Angelou’s Poem “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” which was poignant to me in light everything going on out in the world.
There are some amazing builds, beautiful vignettes to take photos or just play and enjoy your SL. It’s worth the lag and slogging through the mess of it, it really is. There are gifts that are amazing and you can find those in concentrated gift areas. There’s also a shopping area – shop and hop or something or other. You can locate them all here at this link.
Have you gone? You need to go.
After all – there is a free Kittycat! Always a win.
There was a lot more to see and do – obviously one place was giving out a horse to ride, which I found to be delightful. There is a trolley but I could never manage to get on it – i find that confusing. I waited a ridiculous amount of time – let me tell you. It kept going! There is also a drive in movie which LOOKS great but doesn’t work – it says you can click on the screen to start it but it just craps out.
Regardless of these quibbles – SL17B will only come once and this is your chance. Get off your platform and go have some fun. Be ridiculous. Pick up the freebies. Come for the fun, stay for the lag.

I went outside to get set up for my cookout/pool party today and discovered this off the coast. The Jolie Rouge is up, so that’s a bit concerning to me. They continued sailing onward around the tip of the coast and heading toward Bloodroot. I feel like it’s very likely that is where they were headed with a name like that. Don’t you?
Just a simple affair today with lots of sun and food. I’m going to have to get Aliana to change her hair when Cajsa finally gets back on the grid regularly. Two redheads would be too confusing. But she’s my Alt Bestie that’s for sure. I keep thinking I will make her a proper bedroom – it can almost be like she really lives here! Poor girl. I never let her go many places.
It’s hot and sweaty today. A true traditional summer kick off kind of day. I should have invited over more people but then I’m never good at being around when other people are having things. I should work on that.
I picked up a new pool from the Stay at Home Club – that is a great free pick up run don’t walk. I also got us both a new swimsuit for the day. Free is my favorite price.
I hope that your Memorial Day weekend was reverent to those lost but that your time spent with family and friends was fully of love and sunshine.
Happy Monday girls.
