While we watch the tealights float away….

You might want to grab these tealights now

These adorable floating lights are from tarte @ Project Limited. As the event name suggested, this is limited and will never be sold again. They come in three packs of prettiness and it was really hard to choose which ones I wanted. You can get the fatpack for 750L too, which I was tempted to do but I held back because I may or may not have blown my lindens at C88. *cough*

[Fetch] is closing down…

But fear not, she is not gone forever! She will be joining forces with Jian to make more pretties. :D

Grab a mate and head to the prom

Harlow Heslop is hosting a prom!

5th Annual Pixel Prom Ticket Sales
From Harlow Heslop’s Flickr

This is looking to be a fun event! This year’s theme is A Midsummer’s Night Dream. There are only 90 tickets available for each time slot and you can buy tickets for L$350. More info here.

Take lots of pictures if you do attend the prom so I can SLive vicariously through you. :D I would love to go, but I have a family gathering that weekend. <3

And then make plans to attend The Ball

Juno Mantel and I are hosting a Regency Ball on September 10th and y’all are cordially invited! :D We have uhhhhmmms and aaahhhss this plan for nearly 2 years now, and Juno decided to take action and just do it (and drag me with her).

The Ball - A Grand Regency Affair!There will be vendors making and selling things specifically within the theme if you’re worried about not being properly attired. However, we’re aiming for the sim to be a destination and not a commercial space so if you’re just coming over for a gander, you’re more than welcomed to! :D There will be RP opportunities, but you don’t have to RP if you don’t want to. (As a sidenote, I am planning to be there as a clucky, straight-laced, overbearing and nosy middle-aged woman, so be warned!).

We will be publishing more info closer to the date. \o/

P.S: I have no idea how to end this post…

I solemnly swear I am up to no good

Mischief Managed
Mischief Managed Roleplay Sim, Second Life

“For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.”

Although…

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.”

– Dumbledore’s quotes.


Wizarding Faire is coming soon and this year, my little store will be in it. Much excite! \o/

I’m not sure if the sim is open to the public now. According to the sim’s schedule, students are currently on summer holidays. Plus, certain areas are closed for Wizarding Faire setup.

But here’s the sim’s official page if you want to check out RP details or if the sim is open or not.

The sim is gorgeous!

Awright, gotta run off again. I’ll be back soonish with a proper decor post. A weeeee bit swamped right now.

I hope everyone is a-ok! <3

When I was a wee widdle pup, I dreamt of a glamorous city life.

Hey, who doesn’t, eh?

My family moved several times when I was a kiddo. My Dad specialized in turning ramshackle, rural, backwards schools around to meet national standards…And since he was so good at it, we never stayed long. He came, he organized, he left. And us with him.

Which means the formative years of my life were spent in various jungle towns of Borneo.

Literally.

And I’m not, like, using the word ‘literally’ in, like, a figurative manner, like, na mean?

It was literally, literally jungle towns.

Italics and bold in one sentence, and now I shall add all caps because it is THAT literal.

Anyhoo, now that the derailed train has came to a complete stop…

Some time last week, in a moment of nostalgic melancholy, I looked up all the rural towns we used to live in. Things have changed and not for the better. The changes are mostly due to the logging industry. Back then, the only means to transport logs were by dragging them along the river. They were no roads connecting rural towns with major cities. I guess this was not enough for logging tycoons and so they decided to doze the forest down to make roadways.

Progress isn’t always pretty, huh?

Anyway, I digress.

The dichotomy between my life and the ones I saw in magazines and TV was huge. Don’t get me wrong: life in a rural town was idyllic and a lot of fun as kids, but you know how the grass is always greener on the other side, right?

Fast forward to now, living in a city, knee deep in the rat race…and all I want to do is go back and live in a ‘jungle town’.

(Preferably with Wi-Fi though)

I just have to keep reminding myself that the grass is always greener on the other side.

These past few years, I’ve been working hard to cultivate my grass here, in the city.

And hopefully by this time next year or the next, I’ll be out of the rat race. :D

…a.k.a How I Miss Summer.

It’s winter here in Southern Hemisphere, and while I live in the part of the hemisphere with mildest winter, I despise winter.

Everything is dreary and ‘dead’. Including my plants. (To be fair, my plants die no matter what the season is cos I have brown thumb but shhhhh!).

My SL will always be summer. Forever. And Ever.

To eternity.

Not much to say this weekend so I’ll just wish your weekend to be full of cheerful summer goodness! <3
