The Magic of Reading

I love books! Reading a book can be so magical; it can whisk me away to new places, even while I’m stuck at home. When I’m not in world, I do a lot of reading.

This wonderful Paper Magic pose prop set was on sale last weekend at Disorderly for 75L. The flying pose I got free at a past La Vie en Pose event. It isn’t too late to grab some free poses at the current La Vie en Pose, which is open until April 25, 2020. The gifts are quite generous!

Don’t Touch Your Face, Em!

I haven’t posted in quite a while. Last fall, I made a long distance move, lived in an apartment for a while, then went house hunting. After that, it was remodel, decorate and move again! Then I spent time enjoying my new city followed by some minor health issues.

Ok enough excuses. Thanks to COVID-19 and staying at home, I’m BAAACKK!!

I’m always reminding myself not to touch my face…and to wash my hands. I found this shirt a few weeks ago. It is part of a set put out by American Bazaar as a group gift.

  • Pose — :UZU: — Gift Pose 01. I picked this up at an event a while ago.

Summer Candy

The latest creation by b[ELLE] made me think of summer candy — the candy necklaces, dots stuck on paper and strips of sugary gel.

The Sweethearts Dress comes with a HUD and all of the patterns are unique and fun. I had a hard time choosing my favorite, but the 3D look on the hearts print really stands out.

Strange Treasure

Some strange treasure washed up on me beach. It be holdin’ a bit o’ the briny deep without leakin’ out. Shiver me timbers down to me bones!

Love the Beach, Hate the Sand

I really need to work on my inventory, but here I am sweeping sand off my deck again. I love living on the beach but the sand is a pain in my castle!

Hanging Out in the Bayou

It’s hot. It’s muggy. It’s a perfect day to sit barefoot in the shade of a big old tree, feeling the breeze come off the river. A tall, cold glass of lemonade would taste great right about now!

I lived at Bayou Chat Noir for over a year. The entire sim is like an art project and is just stunning. I highly recommend a visit!
