Home is where the heart is

Home is where the heart is

I used to feel quite restless sitting (or standing, generally) at my home in SL, knowing there was so much to explore out there. Now though, I feel at peace. It’s my space, Created just for me. It’s my refuge from the rest of the big SL world and I love it. I don’t shop a lot, and you may roll your eyes and say suuuuure you don’t Starry, but I don’t. Every now and then I’ll get an urge to go out and get something for my home, and so it’s quite an eclectic wee spot. Nothing really goes together, and yet it does. I’ve been “collecting” heart shaped art for a while, not an intentional thing, it just happened, and each home I own now has a heart wall, just like this. :)

Ordinary world….

Ordinary world

Feeling a little Duran Duran inspired today. This outfit is very “ordinary” for me, no tatts, none of my usual jewellery and a dress that goes down past my knees!! What’s not ordinary is that the dress and the shoes were free gifts at the latest Vintage & Cool fair, and the sim I’m at is far from ordinary, I’d go as far to say that Elysion is extraordinary – every time I go, I discover something new.

Just keep me hanging on

I really like the retro look, and love having fun with hair and clothes in this style. Today I wanted somewhere a little grungy to contrast my bright red polka dot top against, and I knew Hot Wax Music and BDSM Lounge had just what I was after, so off I went!  Once I got there, though, I couldn’t find the right “spot” (I had hoped to use one of my poses around the circle of chairs at the club, but couldn’t get the right image in my head) until I took a look upstairs and found the new shibari table from Stockholm & Lima, and my eyes lit up!  A great addition to a fabulous little club, if you haven’t been there yet, go http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Jubilee/148/222/29

Keep me hanging on

The Shadows

I had hoped to get this blog done before I went away for the weekend, but you know how things go, last minute packing and all that blah blah. My sis, raven, has a great area for taking pics, set up at our home. This was taken there, in one of the little “sets”. I’ve been feeling a little lost of late, not knowing where my place was. This past week has seen a few changes, seen me coming out of the shadows.

Time for a dip

It’s winter here. The weather has been awful, to say the least. Winter blues have set in. My family are full of colds. You know the drill. But today, the sun came out. I’ve had windows and doors open, it’s been lovely, and I noticed the first of my magnolia blooms starting to open. Spring must be on the way! So, I decided it was time to wrap on a bikini and find somewhere to take a dip. The land at Serein has plenty of places to do just that….and places to dry off afterwards too!!  Check it out, here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Romfriend%20Island/224/187/28

The Headquarters

I’ve been wandering the grid a bit more of late, finding some new places to haunt. It’s not that my regular hangouts are awful, but I was growing restless. Needing some new inspiration, and maybe (definitely) some new faces. And so, after seeing this place in a couple of profiles lately, I took a trip to see The Headquarters the other day. What a gorgeous place! Beautifully set up. It’s a D/s sim, strictly male dominant/female sub/slave. Quite a few rules regarding protocol here, set out very well on detailed notecards. I’m not sure if I’ll venture there again, might require another read through, but it was definitely worth the visit.

Breathe in deep....

These tasks are near on impossible!!

Little China Girl

Little China Girl

Tonight, I had the David Bowie song “China Girl” in my head. I’d recently seen some posts on the China sim in SL, so it was a natural progression to pop in there and take a few snaps.

Brace yourself!

Brace yourself

Have decided to spend some time blogging some of the places and things that I like in Second Life, this is my first attempt :)

I love this cute little outfit, the braces add an element of whimsy to it, although that all depends on what you wear underneath! I’m really enjoying the change to white hair from black, but I’m certain that will change at some point haha.
