Meet Kenny!

Hi there…I’d like you to meet my new boyfriend, Kenny! He’s perfect for me, he doesn’t say much, he’s not critical of me in any way, and I can deflate him at any time and shove him under the couch! The bad part about Kenny is that he doesn’t help pay the rent, he’s not very attractive, and he has the personality of a beach ball. I’m going to be keeping him around, though. Since I don’t have any Second Life men in my life, Kenny is going to be my model for any couples poses I may be inspired by. It’s not easy being a blogger with no man available to help out with couples poses, and there’s times that the pose makers I blog for have really nice poses that I’d like to use. A couples pose just isn’t the same without two people! It’s not like I want to do poses with explicit sex, just friendly or intimate poses that inspire me. So, I’ll just throw out an idea here, if any of the guys want to take Kenny’s place at some point and help me out with a couples pose, I’d love to chat about it. I don’t think Kenny is going to be very good at showing any emotion, but beggars can’t be choosers! 😀

First off, {MYNX} has a new release in the main store, the Bermuda Shorts come in six colours and are fitted for the SLink, Maitreya(seen here), and Belleza mesh bodies. These fit perfectly and the nicely textured denim is perfect for late summer fun! So kick off those sandals and let the water cool your feet.

The inaugural round of PocketGacha started yesterday and I will admit that the stress free gacha fair is a huge hit! I could relax at home while playing the gachas of some of my favourite stores. Vale Koer has the ‘Preppy Set’ exclusive to PocketGacha and although I wanted the RARE sneakers haven’t managed to get them yet! I did get the ‘Preppy Top, RARE’ though! You can find out more about PocketGacha here. If you’re a member of the Vale Koer group, you received the PocketGacha HUD through the group notices.

The ‘Ruda’ hair from [monso] is one of my favourites!

The ‘Palm Tree Mini Tattoo’ is from IGOTIT and available at Knot&co.. Cute!

As usual I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ mesh head from Catwa, along with the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Fruit Juice’ pose sets from Le Poppycock and available at The Chapter Four, which runs until the end of the month.

And Kenny? Oh…poor poor Kenny! With the stupid grin he’s wearing you’d think I’m grabbing his butt, but really I’m not! ‘Kenny’ is one of the ‘Plastic Boyfriends’ from Cureless and available at Collabor88.

Behind us is the ‘Mid Century Bed’ from Dutchie and some house plants from {what next}, along with the ‘Filmore Factory Clock’ from 7 Emporium, on the far right of the picture.

'No Opinion' Sunday

It’s Sunday morning and to help find a little bit of quiet time in my head, I declare this day ‘No Opinion Sunday’. Its a day to quiet the mind and make a point to have no opinion about anything, no matter how much I may want to.

I’m sitting on this bridge at the Hazardous sim. I’ve never sat here before and once I got used to the height I find it quite enjoyable. My usual spot on the sim is behind my right shoulder, you’ll find me sitting on that bench and watching the sun set, and set some more, and it’s still setting! I love Hazardous! The bridge has men’s and women’s animations but I’m using a pose from the ‘Footnote, Mens’ pose set from Le Poppycock.

And as for my outfit today? I think everyone is aware that The Chapter Four is open and for the August round Slipper Originals has the Cera Sandals and Bento Rings. The sandals are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza flat mesh feet and the fatpack is loaded with colours and options including lots of areas to customize with 16 shoe textures, 12 stones, and 6 metals. The Cera Bento Rings are HUD driven with the option to wear as many or as few as you want. There’s both left and right hands included and there’s 12 stone colours and 6 metals. TCF runs until the end of the month.

If you zoom in a bit you can get a better look at the ‘Ilaria Necklace’ from *elise*, also exclusive to The Chapter Four. It’s HUD driven for easy resizing and has 7 gem and 4 metals to select from. There’s also bracelets and bento rings, all sold separately in the Under 100L room.

The very pretty and breezy hair is from YUMYUM and available at Knot&co..

My pretty lace top is a freebie from Blueberry. You can grab it at the main store or on Market Place.

I am wearing shorts, here. You can only see the belt buckle peeking out, but the Ella Denim Shorts from LEGAL INSANITY are there.

My nail applier is from the Sunrise Sunset pack from Hello Dave, which is the latest VIP gift.

The ‘Moka’ eyeshadow is from the July round of Powder Pack from Izzies’s.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lilo bento head from Catwa, the Lara mesh body(including hands) from Maitreya, and the flat feet from SLink.

I Love Mornings.....No Really.......I Do!

I’ve always been a morning person, it’s always come natural to me so I don’t have a problem getting out of bed to start the day. I’m not one of those people, though, that smiles and sings and is over animated with joy. No, I’m a quiet morning person. I get up and dressed, usually go outside and check on everything, see what the weather’s like and then have a coffee, or two. It’s different for everyone, a persons circadian rhythm dictates what your daily cycle will be. I’m an early to bed, early to rise kind of girl! Maybe having grown up on a dairy farm has something to do with it. The early mornings are necessary, for the cows wait for no man, or something like that! 😀 I have had jobs that being a morning person isn’t a good thing. I’ve worked night shifts, heading to work at 11:30 PM and home a little after 8 AM. It sucked, I just cannot sleep during the day. So while I’m working I get no sleep at all then on my days off I’d try to get caught up. That kind of thing isn’t sustainable so luckily it wasn’t for very long. I’ve been in the same routine(rut) now for quite a few years, and I like it, ‘the early bird gets the worm’ they say, I’m not sure about worms, but I know nothing tastes as good as the first sip of coffee in the morning.

I wanted to state that, because the pillow I’m hugging isn’t completely true for me. I do like mornings, but I have to admit that I don’t always like people! No one specifically, just general ‘people’. Being an introvert has lots to do with that, people tire me out and I need quiet alone time to recharge. There’s nothing cozier that a good book, a cup of tea, and comfy jammies to lay around in. And if it happens to be raining, so much the better. So, this pillow is from *~*HopScotch*~* and is the RARE from the ‘Cuddle Pillow’ gacha set available at the August round of The Gacha Garden, which opened today. There are 9 commons and one rare to play for and remember the ‘Seed of Inspiration’ prize that’s given after 20 plays on a machine. Each pillow has a hug animation that works with AO’s and poses, the RARE has 2 hug animations. The Gacha Garden runs until August 31st.

I obviously haven’t combed my hair yet! The ‘YAKUMO’ hair from Argrace makes me look like I had a rough night and an early morning, I think I might need a hat today. 🙂

I’m wearing the ‘Hipsters’ and ‘Tank Top’ from Maitreya here. I love this set……perfect for pillow hugging!

I’m wearing one of the ten options from the ‘Sydney’ Catwa applier eye shadow from La Boheme. Also from LB, is the ‘Imbolc’ nail appliers. It was a gift from an event, and for the life of me I can’t remember which one, Sorry. I’ve looked for them, and haven’t found them so I’m not sure if they’re still available.

My look starts with the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body, including bento hands, from Maitreya.

I’m using pose 7M from the ‘Wet Sand B’ set of poses from BODYLANGUAGE SLC and available at Knot&co..

As for my home, I’m kneeling on the Mid Century bed from Dutchie. The artwork behind me is ‘Marrakech’ from Silas Merlin. The ‘Wood Sofa and Chair’ are from .:revival:.. The ‘Vintage Rotary Phone-orange’ is from the ‘Kate’s Time Capsule’ gacha set from Nutmeg. The ‘Pallet Table’ is from [Daydreamers]. The “Neon Sign’ is from the Coffee Factory gacha set from Plaaka. The ‘Corrugated Carpet, brown’ is from the ‘Music is Life’ gacha set from DaD Designs. The ‘Seahorse’ artwork is from the ‘Beach Posters’ gacha set from Bee Designs.
