Bright. Shiny. New.

Do you ever go through some stuff and then just want to hide away from the rest of the world? Well, it may not be that easy in RL, but at least in SL it is. After a long and much needed hiatus, I realized that I missed all of the things I loved about my virtual experiences. Shopping, for one. Blogging, making new friends. Oh, and going literally anywhere with the click of the button. Yeah, with quarantine life still in full swing, that’s a big plus.

Having been away for so long, I came to the conclusion that when I did return I’d be determined to make this experience something different and even more enjoyable. I’m not a creator by any means, but I’d love to learn. I want to get out there and meet people and form friendships, rather than hiding out on my platform surrounded by half-finished projects and a mountain of stuff to blog about. And speaking of blogging, I want to continue to write and share things. I want to document the SL me. Of course there will be fashion, and probably lots of it. But, there will be lots of other fun stuff too, I hope. In any case it’ll take some practice, some hard work and a whole lot of trial and error, but I hope those of you that stop on by are up for sharing it with me.

#BeLike Meme

If anyone is up to date on their social media, then you’ve probably met Bill. Bill is well… a stick figure. But, not just any stick figure. Bill is slightly crass, passive-aggressive and completely opinionated when it comes to policing his friends to be just like him. In growing popularity, Bill is already forming his own equally snarky group of fellow stick figures, including wife Emma and girlfriend Bella. Shame on you, Bill.

With that being said, I’ve jumped onto Bill’s bandwagon and created my own “Be Like” meme. While I don’t desire to have anyone be like me, I’d love to see what you all come up with! Feel free to post your “Be Like” meme’s in the comments, or link back so we can all see how to be just like you! ;)

You can check out Bill’s site here or if you’re really into your social media- visit Bill’s facebook page!

Shadows of the Night

The new corset sets from Pixicat for the Arcade are by far one of my top three favorites this round. The rares both feature color change HUDS to change leather or flower colors and I love that the panties for each of them are completely modifiable. Even better, I hardly had to play with the alpha’s on my mesh body to make it fit perfectly. Can’t ask for much more than that.

I’m also wearing new hair from Olive & Paloma, also from the Arcade. It’s a short, ‘I-just-woke-up’ kind of hairstyle that is also adjustable!

Glam Affair – Avril

I love that my favorite skin designer also happens to be one of the masterminds behind the new looks for the LeLutka mesh heads. The effect is flawless. Even better… while I waited not so patiently for the new round of Uber to open on the 25th, I found myself squealing in delight over the Indian-inspired theme. So, while you’ll see quite a bit of spicy flavor over the course of the next month, I was super excited to have came across this new skin by Glam Affair.

While the original Avril skin is available at Shiny Shabby this month, the freckles version is the one that has really caught my eye. I’ve been a red-head in my SL heart since day one and though these days I tend to lean more towards a variety of looks and styles, seeing a perfect set of freckles always brings me back to my favorite look. So, thank you Aida for this amazing new release!
