Clouds come from time to time –
and bring to men a chance to rest
from looking at the moon.

P.S: No rambles today. It’s not even halfway through the week and I’m already burnt out. Someone save me from the drudgery that is work!

P.P.S: Kidding. I love my work. But yeah, it’s one of those week. ♥♥

Lens flare overkill, eh? You guys are just gonna have to deal with it cos I’m feeling sunny this week! :D

I hope everyone is fine and buckling up for the season. One or so month before Christmas. Who’s stressing?

You can’t see it in full here, but I’m using Scarlet Creative’s “Cabin in the Forest Mesh Prefab 2. This was from last C88 and I’m pretty sure it is in mainstore right now, and I bought it blind. As in, I don’t know how it looked like prior to rezzing it for this pic.

There aren’t many builds on SL that I buy blind but I always buy Scarlet Creative’s build blind. I think we’re familiar with ‘first few days of C88′ nowadays. You have to fight to get in, and when you do get in, half of the things takes ages to rezz. Including the vendors.  Whenever C88 rolls around, I TP in and find Scarlet Creative either from area search or from memory (they’re always going to be in the same spot sooo…) and just click and buy. No viewing demo, no looking at pics. Cos I don’t have to see the demo to figure out if I’ll like it or not. It’s Scarlet Creative. I am bound by law of physics to like it. K, maybe not law of physics…I don’t know.

I’ve never been disappointed at any Scarlet Creative’s build so I thought why bother fighting lag monster to wait for a build to rezz, when I’m 238% sure I’m going to buy it anyway? TP in, buy, get out.

(I also buy Trompe Loeil at C88 this way!)

I feel like babbling today so here goes!

We need more ‘posed’ decorative animals

I love using cats and dogs in my deco pics because I think that is what makes a house a home. At the same time, I don’t actually want a virtual pet that I have to feed and entertain. My RL dogs keep me on my toes so much as it is. These gacha cats from fashionably dead is perfect to add a wee bit of homeliness to a deco pic and I hope more creators will make posed animals like this.

The radiator is *cough* not just a radiator

I know you read this blog, Mum and Dad, so this is your cue to skip the next paragraph and not click the link. Mmmkay.

So, guys. This Chain Me Up Radiator from Frogstar is not just a randomly named radiator. Because of this (potentially NSFW!)

Ok. Be on your way now. Nothing to see here.

Xiasumi School Festival

Have you been to it yet? If not, YOU SHOULD. That’s where you will find the Kuro items I’m using in this pic. Go even if you’re not in the mood for shopping because the place is just beautiful and gives you the ‘feel’ of a Japanese-style high school. Don’t be late and may senpai notice you!

A Hole in a Treehouse

 I’ve always wanted a treehouse when I was kid. Kinda like wanting to turn the family garage into your own apartment when you were a teenager, I suppose. I don’t even know why I had this need, seeing that my brother and I have always had different rooms and so our own personal space. I guess, like many kids my age, you see treehouses on TV and you romanticised the idea of it.

I never did got my treehouse. My father, who is very handy, scoffed at the idea. “Girls shouldn’t climb trees,” was his patriarchal reasoning. “It’s not proper.”

I’ve also always wanted to live in a Hobbit hole.

What’s my point? :P

Not a point per se, but when I saw this Abode Tree from Kazza for Fantasy Gacha Carnival, I chuckled and thought this was a perfect compromise to my childhood whimsy. It’s a treehouse, but not up a tree and so I shall preserve my ‘properness’. It’s not quite a Hobbit hole either but hey, it is a hole.

I think most of us are familiar with Turnip’s Skydome by now. It’s pretty much the standard skydomes for our virtual world. But did you know there’s a new terrain texture pack out for Autumn?

Turnip's Enchanted Autumn HUD

HUD for Turnip’s Enchanted Autumn Terrain
This is an add-on to the Skydome 2.0. You NEED the Skydome to be able to use this. Get the Skydome from MP here or inworld (where you can also view demo).

I took a picture of my HUD inworld but I don’t think it’s as clear as I want it to be. You can find clearer pics from Turnip Sorbet’s Flickr here. Or better yet, see it inworld…here’s a direct TP to the demo! This is an add-on. To be able to use the HUD, you will need the base Skydome 2.0.

Speaking of which, if anyone reading this is looking for land to rent in a beautiful environment, check this out:

Offbeat Land For Rent

 At time of writing, I believe this land is still available. Turnip owns the Offbeat sim and it’s beautiful, guys. It’s one of my favourite sims since it is home to some of my favourite stores: Turnip’s Homes (well….obviously, right? XD), Half-Deer (the former renter, moving because she is expanding) and Picnic. The boho fashion store So Many Styles and shoemakers FIR & MNA are also in the same sim, so if you have a business you’ll be in good company. Details on Flickr or you can contact Turnip Sorbet inworld about it. :D

Alrighty, I am sending you on your way now while I enjoy my Friday evening in my treehouse, with a good book and yummy roast chicken! <3

Good Lawwwwd almighteeeh!

I am so glad it’s the weekend. Can we please have 6 weekends and 1 weekday?

How are you, dearies? Was your Halloween full of joy and candies? Did you rock your costumes?

Are you reading this hungover? XD

We don’t celebrate Halloween here in good ol Kangaroo Land but that never stopped me from stocking up on the sweets just in case, you know? And if no one comes knocking on my door to trick-or-treat then hey, I have all the candies to myself. Surely I cannot let it go to waste! :P

No ‘key’ today because I’m this close to typing on the laptop keys with my face.

On a separate note, can you believe it’s already NOVEMBER? Where did the rest of the year went? *hyperventilates*

Alright. I better get ready for bed before I faceplant on this desk.

Happy 1st of November, everyone, and have a lovely weekend! <3

Peace and Serenity

No words today, my dearies. No ‘DIY’ itemised credits too for today. A bit occupied with rebuilding our little shopping region (coming soooon) and this was just something I put together to de-stress from that project.

I hope you’ll forgive me!

Back very soon. <3
