We’re Pink Lemonade

I grabbed a fellow blogger and dragged her to the coldLogic summer sale so we could blog coldLogic and FATEstep (which, along with the other FATE brands, is also having a sale) together. It is a refreshing look, especially with Jian’s Asbury set out on my deck!

We're Pink Lemonade...

The coldLogic and FATE sales run to July 5th, so be sure to check them out!

Opening the house for the season

I’m going away on vacation in RL in just over 6 hours… and I’ve been working on my beach home (in the sky) in SL, so I decided to do a blog post inspired by the merging of RL and SL.

It was a lot of work doing all that cleaning, so I had some friends help out. And maybe I took a break whilst I had them work. I’m just so comfy in my new coldLogic leggings and summery top. Definitely go get your summer fashion fix with coldLogic. The past few releases have been perfect for the arrival of warm weather, beachy days and fun with friends and family! Oh, and these curtains – brand new from LAQ Decor – have so many awesome, seasonal texture options and the anchors seemed perfect for a beach house!

Opening the beach house for the season

Okay, I’ve got to get to sleep, so no rambling today… see ya when we return, sometime after June 4th!

My 6th rezz day…

So Saturday marked 6 years since I joined SL. It’s been quite the journey, and the past 6 years of my RL have been, at times, very turbulent. So there’s been a comfort in the constant that is SL. And I’ve made some truly amazing friends.

I’ve grieved for friends who have died in RL. I’ve cried over the end of friendships, and celebrated the birth of new ones. I’ve fought and made up with friends. I’ve co-owned two stores with my RL and SL husband, with whom I joined SL back in 2009. I’ve been an event owner, an event creator and an event owner. We own a sim. My first job was as a stripper when I was less than two weeks old, and lasted all of an hour (before Rad realized he was, in fact, jealous, lol). I’ve been a photographer, doing both studio and wedding photos, with plenty of repeat clients. And of course, I’ve been a blogger for the past almost four years, first microblogging on Flickr, and then starting this official blog in 2012. And last year I even bought my own domain. I figured I’d be bored with blogging – or even with SL entirely – by now, but that just hasn’t happened so far.

I’ve lived quite the Second Life so far… and I don’t see myself leaving any time soon. Thank you to all who have been a part of it, and to the friend who let me “borrow” her bedroom for the below picture.

Princess in waiting

I can honestly say I still love SL… I still find creativity and fun and friendship here. I am grateful and happy to have such an outlet in my life.

You shall not pass us!

So last night, I got together with a fellow blogger, and just sort of randomly decided to shoot a pic. It was like 1 am, but we had on these gorgeous corsets from Enfant Terrible for We ❤ Role-Play, and it just sort of grew from there. The final look was one designed to inspire both longing and fear!

You Shall Not Pass Us

We took this picture at Fallen Gods.

For Amy

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light.” ~Albus Dumbledore

Amy, you are proof this is true. Your strength and courage and openness as you battle for your life is remarkable and admirable. You are a beautiful warrior. You are all the cliches that are corny but exist because of people like you… because sometimes you just can’t find better words for someone.

My life has been better because you’ve been a part of it. You’re dedicated, determined and devoted in your work, and I believe that this will carry you far in everything you do, especially this.

Your talent has brought joy and light and geekiness and laughter to my SL homes. Your kindness has made me believe that, in a world so often dark and cruel, there is light and gentleness yet. I am honored to consider you my friend.

I sincerely hope Leaf on the Wind makes your London dreams come true… because you deserve to have all of your dreams come true.

Love,
Lucie

My outfit is by Somnia and will be available at Leaf on the Wind when it opens on January 10th. Both the top and skirt include a hud to change the colors, and both are available in lights and darks.

Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving, and yes, it can be overlooked. Especially with how late it was this year, how close to Christmas, it tends to wind up on the back burner for some. But really, as much as I love this holiday, I don’t need a special day for giving thanks. I am so incredibly grateful every day for the many, truly amazing people in my life and for the good things, even the small things.

Thanksgiving

Before retreating to the warmth of the Thanksgiving table, I spent some time outside in the snow. I had on a cozy sweater and was sipping cocoa, and the truth is, I like the cold and snow (which is good, given where I live in RL!). This gorgeous new skin I am wearing is Eva by Belleza, and it’s one of multiple makeup options coming very soon to Uber.

The cold never bothered me anyway

Autumn Fantasy

The Mystic Realms Faire ends tomorrow, so if you haven’t checked this event out yet, don’t wait! It’s two sims full of fantasy.

I wanted to share some of my finds from the event. First, I love this hair from Exile so much. The crown is optional, as well as texture change. My jewelry is also from Mystic Realms, by Cae. My gorgeous skin is the newly released Grace from Belleza.

Wood Elf

Koy released some awesome poses, complete with crossbow prop, for this event. And FATEplay has a new outfit, Surie, which is available in three different versions and plenty of color choices. This is my favorite version. The boots are included, too!

Defender of the Wood

For Mystic Realms, Consignment released this adorable little Planter’s Habitat home. The mushroom seat and faeries sign are part of this set.

Autumn Fantasy

Be sure to check out this great event before it ends tomorrow!
