Meet Kenny!

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.

Throw Your Arms Around Me

Throw Your Arms Around Me

I will come for you at night time
I will raise you from your sleep
I will kiss you in four places
As I go running along your street
I will squeeze the life out of you
You will make me laugh and make me cry
We will never forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky
We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me

I dreamed of you at night time
And I watched you in your sleep
I met you in high places
I touched your head and touched your feet
So if you disappear out of view
You know, I will never say goodbye
Though I try to forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky

We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me
Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

This song gives me goosebumps.

I hope you enjoyed the musical interlude, we will now get down to business.

First off, one of my favourite events is starting a new round tomorrow (July 18) and {MYNX} is there! The Limit8 event is one that I make sure to get to early, cuz if you don’t the limited items that each designer has released exclusively for it will be gone! {MYNX} has the “‘Aviator Sunglasses’ exclusive for the event, they’re available in gold,(seen here), silver, and rose gold. They’re big, they’re bold, and they’re beautiful.

U L T R A opened yesterday, and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Summer Meltdown’ festival poses! I’m using one from the “A” pack. These poses are all a lot of fun, you’ll be having a blast at the outdoor concerts and festivals this summer! There’s two packs to get, with each one containing nine poses plus a small amount of a controlled substance. Enjoy 😀

I can’t believe how fast July has gone! We’re already into the third week, and as the time passes the events come to a close, unfortunately. But, there’s still a couple days remaining for Summerfest’17, and C’est la vie has the ‘Febe Tankini’ exclusive to the event. Since I was planning on going to Hazardous for the photos, I figured I wouldn’t be swimming, so I’m just wearing the ‘tank’ part of the tankini. 🙂 I chose the ‘army’ version of this suit, with each colour option of the top, it comes with a bottom, which is HUD driven with an 8 colours selection. You have until July 20 to get it Sumerfest’17, but after that I would think it will be at the C’est la vie main store.

I know it’s a surprise for everyone that I didn’t pair a tank with a pair of shorts. I really wanted to, but I’ve done that way to many times already this summer, so I settled on a the ‘Dina Corduroy Mini Skirt’ from [QE] Designs. It’s a short, snug, and totally sexy mini perfect for dancing at the concert. It’s HUD driven with ten colours and fitted for the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

One of my favourite hair so far this summer is the ‘Hani’ hair from [monso]. This is from the blacks pack.

And again, I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at my second home for this picture, Hazardous.

Great Ideas

Great Ideas

The idea to make a machine that slices a loaf of bread was a great idea. The day I decided to cut off an electrical wire with a pair of pliers, without shutting the breaker off…..not so much. Indoor plumbing was an idea that was pure genius. The time my sister said, ‘Hey, lets crawl up the bale elevator’, wasn’t. One broken leg and much crying ensued, but then, I was only 6. 😀 Whoever had the idea for an automatic washing machine was pretty darn smart. When Dad said to me, ‘Hang on to that board while I sand it’, I should have been smart enough to see this coming and walked away! But instead I got my hand sanded with a belt sander….good idea? Nope…not even close. What I’m getting at here is that there are so many people that have great ideas, and my family and I are more like a Jackass movie!! It’s my own fault, really. I’m sure climbing the bale elevator would have been fun had I been older and a little less clumsy, my sister made it up and back safely….but no, I break my leg while at the bottom. The hand sanding(as we like to call it) was nothing more than me helping Dad out, and since I’m a people pleaser I help when someone needs it! For the record, it only bled for a little while and he laughed.. The live wire and pliers incident I have a harder time explaining, I guess I just wasn’t thinking. A note to anyone who does want to try it, don’t wear a fuzzy sweater when you do, it gets scorch marks down the front! 😀 These are just a few anecdotes that stand out it my thoughts right now, I’m sure everyone has moments like these….. at least I hope so.

The Epiphany opened yesterday, it only comes around four times a year, so it’s always exciting when the doors finally open. I was up bright and early this morning and managed to gain access to it, much to my surprise. There’s all kinds of goodies to play for this round and there’s also some gifts in celebration of The Epiphany’s birthday. Veechi is at this round and has an incredible gacha set of goodies! The ‘Desert Sun ‘ catwa make up gacha is a collection of vibrant desert colours with shadow and lip tint among the commons and one of the RARE items being lashes! I’m so excited to be able to wear all these goodies since my acquisition of the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa. I’m wearing one of the two options from the Lush Lashes, RARE prize and one of the three options from the Victoria Shadow, naturals set. In all, there’s ten commons and 2 RARE to play for. The Epiphany runs until August 15.

In the world of Group Gifts, !NFINITY has the Emme Summer Top out free for group members and it’s perfect for these hot summer days. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, Tonic, and TMP mesh bodies, and also comes in standard sizes plus, it’s HUD driven including eight colours. The group has a 50L$ one time fee to join, but with regular gifts and reduced pricing on new releases, it’s well worth it!!

There’s still a few days left in the current round of Shiny Shabby and LEGAL INSANITY has the Ella Denim Shorts exclusive to the event. They fit like a glove and look incredible with a slimming leg and a nice round butt. 😀 They’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and they come in four denim tones, sold separately or as a fatpack. Shiny Shabby runs until July 20.

The July round of The Chapter Four is still going strong with lots of time left for you to get your shopping done! {MYNX} has the ‘Beach Beads’ gacha set there for your playing enjoyment. These bangles just scream fun and summery and with ten commons and two RARES to play for, you’ll have as much fun as a beer commercial. 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Beach Beads-Starfish, RARE which is colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the cord.

This is how I look before every blog post I write, if you want to know the truth, although I’m not usually smiling. 😀 RC Cluster has the ‘Really Neat Notepad and thinking pencils’ gacha set at The Epiphany and I got the ‘Great Ideas’ version to help stimulate my brain! You get the notepad and the ‘thinking pencil’ in each prize with arm poses included. Just add the two things to yourself after you’re in the pose you want and your arms will do do their thing!

You might want to zoom in a bit in flickr to catch a good look at the pretty manicure I have on. This is from the ‘Grapefruit Mimosa’ applier set from Hello Dave. It’s compatible with SLink, Omega and Maitreya nails. This is one of five colours in the mini set.

I love the ‘Satomi’ hair from [monso]. The hair is shaped into cute little kitty ears and tied loosely at the back. It’s at the Hair Fair 2017 today, but with this being the last day it should move to the [monso] main store shortly.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo is a group gift from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I like it’s simple message that isn’t thought of enough. There’s five other group gifts available for group members at this time.

I’m using the animations HUD for the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa here to make this look that kind of looks like I’m happily thinking good things. I will admit that this isn’t the picture I wanted for this post, but after crashing a whole bunch of times while trying to take a different shot, I finally gave up and settled on this one. I just didn’t have the energy to log back in and do it all over again, I’m sure there’s a fellow blogger or two that might feel my pain. 😀 So, to make the Lilo head look fab I’m using the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. I just love this look and find it hard to try others, so Luna it is! And as always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

As for the nice decor around me at home, the Visual Bench 1, RARE is from the ‘Visual’ gacha set from Concept. The ‘Beach’ sign is from the Coastal Cabin gacha set from Bee Designs. The Birdacge Decor and the Ladders & Bird Houses are from the ‘Courtil’ gacha set from Myrinne.

I’m on the deck of the Boat Shack from REDGRAVE Homes and Interiors.

Road Trip: Day 4

Road Trip: Day 4

Well, it’s day four of our trip and this morning started off uneventful! But, that soon changed when we went to load up the car and found it with a flat tire! A flat tire doesn’t bother me in the least, I’ve changed a few in the past and I’m actually almost as fast as a Nascar pit crew! Once I got that done and got cleaned up we were on our way! We’ll have to find a place to fix the spare, now that it’s a flat spare, but that’s not a big deal! So, we got the car loaded, all the must haves within easy reach for the day ahead! We’re going ‘old skool’ on this trip and we have a bunch of mixed tapes all made up for this adventure! We go over the checklist before we head out: coffee-check, kleenex-check. big thermos of ice water-check check, Werther’s Originals-double check, Cosmopolitan to do the sex quizzes-checkarooni! It looks like we’re about ready to go, so we fasten our belts, start the car and wave goodbye to the town that was home for a night! I push the cassette into the player and out blasts Ch-ch-ch-changes by David Bowie, so we burst into song and smile wide as the miles start flying by! It’s time to ‘turn and face the strange’! 😀 The time passes pleasantly and we’re needing a pee break, so the next gas station we come to we pull in, in a cloud of dust, and get the key to the restroom and do our business! I’m not one to stop and not get a cup of coffee, so I refill my go-cup and we’re on our way again! The day is getting warm, we have the windows down and our hair is covering our faces as we sing. The windshield is a myriad of bug guts, and just as we point out a particularly scenic vista, something zips past my head and into the back seat! I’m not sure what it was, but I know it’s not good! We both look back, seeing if we can find the unexpected intruder and as we both spot it at the same time, we shriek, ‘GRASSHOPPER’! Oh my gawd…..just then it hops up towards the front and I’m in a panic! I’m swatting and jumping up and down as much as I can and we’re both screaming! You see, we’ve both been completely terrified of grasshoppers all our lives! I know, I know….it’s only a bug, but we can’t help it!! My cup of coffee is forgotten as my arms wave wildly and my cup lands on my lap and slowly seeps out onto my pants leg then drops lazily to the floor leaving a trail of coffee in it’s wake! Now I have more to worry about than a grasshopper. I get control of myself enough to get the car pulled over onto the shoulder and we evacuate the car like our lives depend on it! The grasshopper has ended up on the passengers seat, and since it’s not my side I point at it and say, ‘come on, get it outa there!’. At first I don’t think she’s going to comply but she bravely reaches in with her shoe and starts whaling away at it! I guess catch and release wasn’t in her plan!! She flicks it onto the drivers seat with her fingers and laughs as I flip her the bird! The grasshopper is disposed of and my cup of coffee is still laying on the floor beside the clutch, all dusty and grimy! My new pants now have a huge coffee stain on them, and I’m not not looking as fresh as I was when we left! We’re ready to continue on our way now and as I put it into gear and prepare to pull away, the car stalls! I turn the key and am rewarded with nothing, just the cranking sound as it fails to fire! I look at her, she looks at me and I try again! Nothing, I shrug and grab my phone. I just hope the tow truck driver is good looking! We get someone to tow the car to town and we find a shop to fix it, the tow truck driver was an old guy, but very nice! Here’s the picture taken of me just after we got the car into the shop! We’ve found a motel to stay at and it’s next door to a bar named ‘Roadhouse’, so it looks like we’re going to have a good night!!

This scene and entry into the travel log all came about from the ‘Live Free’ A & B pose sets from Le Poppycock! This set is one of my favourites and I’m going to be sitting on and leaning against cars and trucks for the rest of the summer! Each set has six poses including a pose ball a static pose and a pose ball for heels when needed! It’s available at the July round of Collabor88 which runs until the end of the month! While you’re at C88 you should grab the ‘Vintage Roadtrip Car’ from NOMAD, which I’m using here! I’ve always loved the old Volkswagen Beetles!

As for my outfit! I made a few purchases while I was at Collabor88, including the ‘Roadie Capris’ from Maddict! They’re fitted for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Hourglass body from SLink, and the Isis and Freya mesh bodies from Belleza and the fatpack includes twelve colours, with or without the coffee stain! The coffee stain was a no brainer for me! It’s usually part of my outfit!

The ‘Cozumel Top’ is also at C88 and it’s from Emery! It comes in seven colours and fits the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

My shoes are the perfect travelling footwear! The ‘Katrine Heels’ from Ingenue are available now at Summerfest’17. They’re compatible with the SLink and Maitreya mid feet and come in twelve colours, this is ‘saddle’.

The ‘My Hair Suzy’ hair is from [monso] and, like said, made a ‘few’ purchases at Collabor88, to say the least! This is from the black and white pack!

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

The ‘Coffee Cup, plain’ is from floorplan but the gacha is available at the Consignment & brocante main store!

Now, the garage that we ended up taking the car to get fixed was suggested by the tow truck driver, so I hope he does good work! But, he seems to keep a cluttered work area. I’ve got my suitcase out of the trunk, which is in the front of the car, for anyone who doesn’t know that about a Beetle, and the suitcase is from the ‘On the Road’ gacha set from (Milk Motion). The “Gasoline Cans’ and the ‘Pop Machine’ in the background, ‘Gentlemen’s restroom’ sign and the ‘RX9-1000 Boombox’ are from 7 Emporium, one of my favourite places to find neat and quirky things! From Consignment is the Oil Bottles, Tool Chest, Wood Poster, and Industrial Fan from The Garage Collection gacha set! The ‘Trash Can for Ash’, ‘Ice Cream’ vending machine, and ‘Factory Chair’ are from various gacha sets from Soy. The ‘Big Clock’ is from The Industrial Side gacha set from APT B. The ‘Safety First’ safety station is from the ‘Home Improvement’ gacha set from Second Spaces. The ‘Exit’ sign is from NOMAD.

I’m inside the bays for the firetrucks in the ‘Central Fire Station’ from KraftWork. It’s a brilliant design and with all the room in it, it could be turned into anything!

Welcome, Friends!

Welcome, Friends!

Hi there, welcome to my happy home! Won’t you come in and make yourself at home? No? You have no time? That’s too bad!(not) That’s the thing about me, I can welcome people into my home, but no matter who they are, I’m always relieved when they decline my invitation! I think everyone knows this….I rarely have drop in visitors so I’ve got everyone trained well!

My home today is the ‘Kenwood Summer House’ from Raindale! It’s a cute little summer home available now at Cosmopolitan. With a footprint of 14×16 you’d think it’s tiny….but it really is roomy inside with it’s open floor plan. It comes with two versions, one with lights(seen here) and one without, this version has a land impact of 43 and the one sans lights has an LI of 37. The ‘welcome’ sign post comes with it, and the pack contains a blank texture for people like me who prefer to be alone! Moz Loordes was nice enough to point this out to me in his blog post, A Writer’s Summer. Moz includes an extensive tour of the house inside and out, which makes up for my one sided shot of it, which doesn’t do it justice! Thanks for the tip, Moz….I’m sure this gets the point across to any would-be visitors! You’ll noticed I dropped the ‘please’ you suggest, for a Canadian I’m not that polite, I guess! 😀 I wasn’t sure what ‘sod off’ meant, but a quick visit to the Urban Dictionary gave me a good idea! Also from Raindale in this shot is the Garden Bench and Garden Tree, both available at the Home Show 2017! The tree is HUD driven with options to change the bark and leaves along with a switch to turn the glow off/on for the leaves. The bench is loaded with 12 singles animations plus the options to read or use a phone, and there’s 9 couples animations. Available at the Raindale main store is the Meadow Grass, this is the ‘summer, soft’ version of it.

Here’s a rundown of all the other items that I’ve strewn around the yard!

Abandoned Memories Bicycle, Soy
Clothes Line w/clothes, Funky Junk
Wild Allium in pur pur, keke available at Collabor88
Primitive Birdhouse set, vintage garden hose, unrolled, ‘happy home’ sign, barn lamp all from hive
Forgotten Garden, tree from the Forgotten Garden gacha, Silas Merlin available at The Chapter Four
Daisy Pot, miwa’s airship
Retro Floor Fan, .:revival:.

My outfit consists of the Bella Tank Top and Scrunched Sweats, both from Tres Blah. The ‘Chungha’ hair from [monso] available at ~uber~. My whole look starts with the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa, with the Alexa skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada! Plus the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.
