A Walk In The Park

Literally. That’s what it is, a walk in the park. When I lived in the city the puppies and I walked in the park every day. It was a beautifully landscaped park but it didn’t have a beautiful fountain or stone benches, like the Andover Park Gacha Collection from Refuge. Collect all the pieces at this round of The Arcade.

There’s a new collection of NG Outfits made available for you at the Hoorenbeek mainstore! I’m wearing the Brandon outfit; duffle coat, untucked army shirt, rolled up slim jeans, untied Norfolk shoes and tortoise Wayfarer glasses all in the Brandon box! Compatible with Legacy (shown on me), Belleza Jake, Signature Geralt and Gianni, SLink male mesh bodies and Classic Avatars.

He Was A Dreamer

I’m always careful not to clutter my blog pictures too much because every little item that’s created with love and care by the designer deserves to be seen. Also, I feel the items I use have to compliment each other for it to make sense for me to put them together in a scene. As a general rule, less is more. I went a li’l bit artsy this time and it’s not a coincidence that I chose to place a single empty chair in a way that makes it stand out – One of my pictures has been selected for the ValiumSL’s Empty Chair Gallery opening exhibit! The ValiumSL – Marfa, Texas sim Grand Opening and gallery opening is Saturday 30th at 11 AM SLT. ALL are welcome!

I’m lost for words when it comes to these two new releases I’m blogging today. Just, wow. The texturing work and the care for detail in both is stunning.

A Quiet Celebration

You know, I don’t care much about partying and fireworks. My perfect RL New Years Eve is a quiet one. Why? Because my puppies are scared of fireworks. So many dogs and cats are scared on New Years Eve but with this as with so many other things, people are selfish and inconsiderate. Also, alcohol and fireworks is a bad combination. I’m sure doctors have better things to do than to patch up someone’s mangled hand after they held the fireworks when showing off. Also, I think fireworks is a huge waste of money.

Find your Japanese Raw Dorayaki sweets at this round of Kustom9 where Cinoe offers the Year-end discourse. Not only decorative food and drink, it also dispenses bento animated food/drink for you and your guests.

A Merry Little Christmas

Christmas 2020 is a different kind of Christmas. That doesn’t mean it’s automatically sad, or cancelled, unless you make it so. I hope you’re having a merry little Christmas, wherever you are. Make it special and remember, friends or family members are just a phone/Discord/Skype/Facetime call away.
