Speaking of Exotic Locations…

Speaking of Exotic Locations_001 (2)

“Some people when they see cheese, chocolate or cake they don’t think of calories.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Speaking of Exotic locations…

… Travel is just up my isle this summer. Maybe I have “the bug.” And since I haven’t been traveling much in real life lately (I have been recovering from a longterm illness) I have been traveling in second life.

I recently purchased a homestead and am planning a little surprise for everyone on it. In the meantime, a lovely friend is doing some teraforming and building… and wow it is popping into an exotic locale… and I am spinning round the Second Life globe getting ideas for what to set down as far as prims on the land! What do you think of these elephants? I’m thinking I may just want to add them to my decor… wooo! No poaching though!

Speaking of animals… what about that Evil Bunny Hunt? OMG the amazing gifts!

Damian and I made a stop by Dragonmoon Designs and hunted down the 1L prizes (there’s one for the guys and one for the girls) and got these great summer time outfits. They both include

  • A hud for four colors
  • Multiple Sizes for Mesh Bodies
  • A prize for men and one for women

You don’t want to miss out!

And… speaking of missing out…

… it’s always a sad day when a Second Life icon closes its doors. Crom is having a closing sale and you don’t want to miss out on the 75% storewide savings! I picked up the Calista Collar Necklace for just 72L (omgosh it has a hud for 3 metals and 12 different pendants) and a gorgeous little Septum from a gatcha for just 20L! I got lucky and pulled a Rare for three metals for my 20L price!

Damian and I each took  a picture. He snapped his below and Mine is above. Be sure to check out these amazing deals before it’s too late!

Lean on me.

You can lean on me.

I remember roller skating to the song “Lean on Me” at the roller rink as a teen. It was what you did on Friday nights while you held some boys hand. It was the cool kid thing to do. It kept most of us out of trouble back then too. Kept us off the streets and out from drinking or doing drugs. It was a great loss when the roller rink shut down.

A lot of kids turned to drinking in my small town when the rink shut down. Parties in sheds and barns and the like. I remember some accidents on back gravel roads that were pretty bad. Families didn’t talk about it much. You kept such things hush hush. And then “Lean on Me” took on a different meaning for all of us.

We all depended on each other to just to get through high school. Growing up in a small town and getting through high school when there isn’t support is a difficult prospect. You don’t have the cultural “to dos” of the city… and people think small town living is this great thing… but tell that to the five kids that died by suicide in my small town that year. And there were only 22 in my graduating class.

Lean on me. I lean on Damian a lot. He’s my rock. When everyone else cracks and breaks down… Damian keeps going. He thinks he isn’t that strong, but he underestimates his own strength. No matter how tough things are… he keeps going and he never gives up. When I got sick last year in July and couldn’t be online for him, he stood by me. He waited until I was well and relied only on infrequent contact and didn’t give up on me.

Lean on me. Or more accurately… lean on him. I’ve leaned on him. I only hope that he feels he can lean on me.

Lean on me, Damian. You’ve been there for me.

Christmas in NY

Christmas in NY

Not only did I find this really pretty sim called A New York Christmas, but I also found the biggest event with gifts I have ever seen.

The Shop & Hop event is a holiday shopping event with 100 merchants spread over over 5 full regions!! Best yet, all of the merchants have a gift out that is waiting for you to pick up for free, so be sure to visit Aurelian, Gilded, Golden, Halycon, and Tinseled before January 17th 🙂

It was a hard to pick out what to show you today since there is a LOT to choose from, but I ended up with hair from ELIKATIRA, which comes with a hud with 20 colors to pick from and this outfit from Evani, a really nice sweater and a pair of jeans in the sizes:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The rest of the shown gifts you will find below! 😀

Crazy times

Trying to keep up

I can’t say that Christmas is really my thing. The grocery store become like a battleground when people are trying to get their last minute items for their luxurious Christmas dinners. It’s a whole bunch of crazy but even though I prefer to just calmly have some pizza by candlelight in a quiet room, I do my best to blend in and pretend to enjoy it…

A nice thing about Christmas are all the presents that given away in SL. What was even more special was that the Men Cave event has a very creative looking Christmas tree with gifts underneath it for the guys. That’s how I found myself this fun Christmas sweater by FashionNatic.

Even though the sweater makes me blend in more with the Christmas crowd, I was thankful to find a free mustache with goatee which allowed me to get some heavy metal looks and some glasses to make me look smarter than I actually am.

Snow

Snow

I’m wondering if we will get snow here this winter. Thankfully there are some really beautiful sims on SL to visit in case I will miss out on it again. And the upside is that I don’t have to wear a warm coat and I can wear shirts that have holes in them.

The hair is a free group gift from Barber Yumyum. I know that it is probably supposed to be female hair, but I do like longer hair as well and I thought it was not that bad looking at all. It only comes in one color (blond), but since you can edit the hair, you can tint it to however you like it, which is what I did for the picture.

The shirt from Sweet Intoxication actually available for free in two colors. The black version I’m showing now is easy to find, it’s with the group gifts. If you would like a red version you will have a little hunting to do. You will be looking for a blue scroll for the Naughty or Nice 4 hunt.

Red

Red

The Womenstuff hunt ends on the 30st of November, so this will be you last chance to pick up the free- and dollarbies.

My avatar is wearing closed version from a free red shirt from Pink Cream Pie, but there is a also an open version included for whoever feels a little more sexy during these cold months. It comes in the sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hg
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

The heels are also a Womenstuff hunt gift that can be found at DE. Boutique. That is… if you will be able to find the hidden hunt item that is in the form of a little T-shirt.

For those that will not be able to make it on time before that hunt ends, worry not, there will be PLENTY more hunts and events when December begins. One of the events that has already started, is the SaNaRae event and they also have some free gifts out.

I picked up this nice choker from Supernatural that I wanted to show. It comes with two huds to choose a color for the bow and tons of colors for the gem. I also found these really nice ripped leggings from Rekt that also includes a hud with 7 colors to pick from. It didn’t say what size it was, but I assume it’s just Maitreya since it fit my avatar’s body perfectly.

Happy thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

This is not something we celebrate over where I live, but I actually think we should. It’s kind of nice to take a moment and think about what we are thankful for at times.

I’m thankful for the amazing people I have met that became my friends. Friends who accepted me for who I am, with all of my flaws and weirdness. I’m thankful to have met Astrid and Tom. You both taught me a lot about myself, encouraged me to keep going and help me to become the best I can be. I still have a long way to go, but I’m getting there 🙂 I love you ♥ And I’m also thankful for my two cats 😀

Even though it’s not a tradition here, tonight I will be spending time with my family and appreciate that they have been there for me, even though we have our differences. I’m thankful for all they do and have done. To show that I even made them dinner that I will be bringing over. I impressed myself…

The freebies
The shirt and shoes are both free hunt gifts from the SLF&O hunt. The hunt will end at the 25th of November, so there is some time left get collect all of the gifts. There are a few stores who have male gifts and you can see in the hint list which ones. The sizes for the shirt:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

I hope you will all have a good Thanksgiving 🙂

Enjoying the sun

Mangula subscriber gift

Even though it’s getting colder outside, at times when the sun comes through it’s nice to take a moment and feel the warmth of it on your skin. I’m pretty sure I should have worn a shirt underneath my jacket, but I didn’t think about it until now. No wonder I’ve been cold all day.

The outfit I’m wearing is a free subscriber gift from Mangula. You can get the gift by clicking the sign on the wall that says subscribe (this won’t take any group space and you can unsubscribe whenever you want to) and when you are done you can click the gifts on the ground. For this male gift you will get a jacket, pants and braga in various colors, sized for Gianni and Jake.

The necklace is a free gift from RealEvil for the SLF&O group. I’m uncertain if it has a meaning to it, but for some reason I really like it a lot. It comes in a male and a female version.

Winter is coming

Winter is coming

The leaves are falling and the forests are still very colorful, but soon the branches will be bare and the cold will come over the land. I think that every season has something special, something almost magical. Sure, the wind and the cold in the winter and are not always fun, but once the first snow begins to fall it always makes me smile. It’s always inviting to go out for a walk, then come home and to wrap yourself in a warm blanket with some hot tea and chocolate.

We do need to keep ourselves warm when outside and for some reason I like to prepare for winter in SL as well. Thankfully the Womenstuff hunt has plenty of warm gifts, in case you haven’t already warmed up by watching your avatar run around in order to find all the hunt items.

Firstly I would like to point out that the hair on my avatar is completely free. It is available at Sintiklia and there is no group you need to join. I like it a lot and it’s a bonus that it’s also a fatpack with all colors you can think of and with more of less volume. So very generous of the creator!

The really nice warm fur jacket is from Maci and the skinny jeans from AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS are also a really nice addition for your collection. That last one comes with a hud that gives you 27 options of textures, so that you can always find something to match. The sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Fitmesh XS-XL (only for the skinny jeans)
