Coastal waters

I though that my summer postings were done… so not quite.  Though great setting for the weekend that is here and for America, it’s also a long weekend as it’s Labor Day on Monday.   The Praiano table set is by Chez Moi and at Cosmopolitan, which is the event being featured.

I’m wearing an outfit by Scandalize. It’s available in 21 color options with each having two top versions.  It’s also available at Cosmo.  The hair is a new release by eXxEsS and at the main store.

The topiary trees and the tree to the side is by Little Branch.  The topiary is the item for Hello Tuesday, but I just checked and it’s still available for half off.  The floor pillows with pillow holder, fire pit and pillow box is by Nerenzo and at Cosmo.

The last item is the coastal outdoor seating by Shutter Field & Decor Junction.  It can be found at Shiny Shabby.

Have a great weekend!!

Enjoying the country atmosphere

Howdy!!  I’m practicing my southern drawl when I say that.  Ok. I’m teasing.  I don’t have a drawl or an accent for that matter.  As I mentioned the other day in my post where I featured a farmhouse and decor I use to think about wanting to live in the countryside.  Yet, I don’t even listen to country music or wear anything country much less jeans in real life.

Though I like wearing the country style here in SL from time to time and if you do too then it’s time to visit this month’s round of The Liaison Collaborative. The theme is all about “Country Chic.”

Also showcasing some more items from The Gacha Garden, so take a look at credits for everything shown.

Have a great one!!

The city never sleeps

Showcasing lots here starting with a new release by Galland Homes. The Mount Washington skybox features a living room with a working fireplace, a bedroom that looks out to five city scenes. It also has a bathroom and extra space for a seating area or whatever use you may have for it.  It is 21 m. x 21 m. with a land impact of 27 and available now at the newest round of The Chapter Four.

I’m also featuring a new bed by Hive, which is currently available at Collabor88 in both a pg and adult version.  It is a 12 land impact.

I’m wearing a new hairstyle by Pr!tty called Sunny, which I absolutely like a lot. It’s available at The Gacha Garden. I’m going to link you to the designers Flickr, where she explains all about her gacha.  The lingerie I’m wearing is a new main-store release by Empire, called Ineffable and I’ve listed all the pieces that are available down in credits.  As always comes with a color hud that gives you plenty of options.

The last item being featured is the Learning Stuff Gacha by Dilly Dolls at The Gacha Garden.  The whole work station including the chair I’m sitting on is part of the gacha as well as the laptop on the bed.  I’m not using all the pieces of the gacha, so have a look here for all the pieces included.

Have a great one!

She was a brat in his eyes

015 Reverie22

Yep, a spoiled annoying ill mannered child here… laughs.  I used to get annoyed with this guy that I was once involved with.. who would on occasion call me a brat. I’m absolutely sure he thought that I was  a bit spoiled at times.  In the sense that I was used to getting my own way… petulant at best if I didn’t get it either. I know it.

In any case, today I rather think that I was an adorable charming brat, because truth be told I’m not about to change now and I rather like me a lot. ❤

Plant’er Right Here

Check out this new hair style by enVOGUE.  It’s rigged and fitted mesh and is available in a whopping 96 colors, plus root and ombre colors too.  There are 12 colors for the cap and is now available at the main store.   The earrings, which are called nightmare are by Le Morte and are available at this round of Totally Top Shelf.  Both the hair and earrings come with a texture change hud.

A friend asked me a question today that I’ll share.  It was this.  If you love someone and you are upset and angry, would you rather be with others or with that person you love?  For me it was a no-brainer, so I didn’t hesitate in saying the person that I love. I did add that if I’m angry and upset with the person I’m in love with — well then I might want to go off and be alone until I cool off.

Then we sort of had a brief discussion on what it really means when someone who professes to care for you does exactly that when they’re upset — spends time with others instead of you and while the explanation might seem plausible it has a ring of untruth in it.  Could it be their feelings are not really true? Playing games — I want to have my cake and eat it too syndrome?

For the record we are talking about relationships within the framework of Second Life that are supposed to be based on good intentions.  That of developing a relationship that involves real thoughts and feelings and going outside the realm of this platform. Mind you we didn’t really come up with an answer — just mindful that distortion can occur when you’re in a world built around fantasy.  Some people are just wired differently.  What do you think?

Speaking of I want to have my cake and it too.  I’m sure this probably happens to you men too.  I’m strictly saying it from some of my experiences lately, so here is my advice to some of you men in this virtual world.  It’s all nice and great when you want to compliment a woman on her looks or even something in her profile.  “I get it. You’re just being polite”.   My 22-year old niece would say, but Tia (aunt) they just can’t help themselves with my beauty and they have to speak it out.  I love her. She makes me laugh.

Though guys if you’re wondering why you may not get a response — perhaps you need to check your partner box and put your eyes back on the woman standing next to you or the one you’re dancing with.

I’ll confess that I don’t often look at the profile before I respond with a simple thank you and close the box.  Though what if that partnered someone tries to then engage you in a conversation beyond that?  Do you close the box once again and completely ignore? Or do you give them a piece of your mind?

I choose to go with the first option.  I just don’t have the desire or the willingness to engage even further.  What about you?

I’ll have to save my very favorite experience of the week for another day, because I’m late with my postings today.

Sorting out life one load at a time.

Laundry Day 033

I had another long day where I did a long loop of travel from home to work to a meeting in another town an hour away then back to work to drop off the employee who was with me and then the 40 minute trek back home.  One of those days where I ended up not being able to have lunch until about 4 pm and by then sporting a headache.  Next time I make it to the grocery store I’m storing up on a box of beef jerky and dumping a few in my purse.

Then I have to get home only to have to do laundry in Second Life.  Just kidding! As if!  I think that the moment that SL begins to feel like work that’s when I know it’s really time to move on.

Over the next couple of weeks I will be showing items that will be available at the Jewelry Fair that opens in a few days on September 13 and will run until September 28.  The heart necklace and earrings are from RealEvil Industries and I have to say that I am truly impressed with the jewelry. Everything from the design to the texture and details.  The necklace comes in three ways — you can wear either the top or the bottom by itself or you can wear both as one.  The set comes with a HUD that allows you to change the texture on the heart, beads, leather and metal, giving you several color choices.

Lots of great stuff to be had at the jewelry fair this year.
