Time is just flying past and now Christmas is only a couple of weeks away I just can’t believe it! Of course it’s been a hectic time for me both in real life and in SL and I haven’t managed to cover all the stories I’ve wanted to yet, but will try to catch up. I have been looking at Christmas and winter sims which has been really nice. I popped into one a few days ago and suddenly saw Blondin Linden on my radar. I had met Blondin at the Valentines event that the Lindens put on back in February so I stopped to say hello. I’m sorry about the picture if you are reading this Blondin, I never saw the sign for ‘Free Stuff’ hanging over your head when I took it, I can assure everyone that Blondin is not a free gift in the sim! I met Drax later and we travelled over to see the SL version of the Oval Office which was fun. It was very well done and I asked Drax if it was like the real thing, (he had a glimpse inside the real one some time ago!) Well he thought the carpet was a different colour! Maybe Obama’s dog had a few accidents in there, who knows!! Drax sat behind the desk and I took some dictation, I think we sorted most of the world’s troubles between us! lol!
I had a call the next day from Up4 Dawes and his partner Rux who own the beautiful Old Europe sim. Up4 invited me over to a live SLTV fashion show where the owner of Bliss Couture was being interviewed. It was really good and while I was there Up4 suggested I might like to open one of my Christmas shops in Old Europe. This was really nice of him and Rux and I went over to see. Up4 sorted me out a fantastic store and I had a lovely time kitting it all out. I’d like to carry on making things after Christmas and may make some fairy stuff, but I don’t know what else yet. I’d like to say thanks to Up4 and Rux for giving me a chance to be in their lovely sim with my designs. I’ve yet to explore the rest of the sim and enjoy the ice skating there, so that is next on my list!
There was to be a Winter Ball at the West End Club last Saturday and I had to look for something to wear. I must admit, when I’m looking for a dress for a special occasion, the price tags of 500 to 800 Lindens do put me off as I can’t say I would wear the dress more than a couple of times, so I shop around a lot. I was beginning to lose heart when I suddenly decided to look at Lemania as they always have some lovely outfits there. As I landed there I instantly spotted it! a beautiful dress, all shell pink and floaty, not at all like I usually wear! It was love at first sight, then I saw the price and I was head over heals in love! it was a special offer for L$100, so I snapped it up! That left me money to go hair shopping too and I found just what I wanted. So off I went to the ball looking completely different to my somewhat tougher and harder looking avatar style. I’ll be writing more about the Ball in Virtually London (lite) this week.
The Ball was really nice and we had another ‘do’ to go to afterwards. Truthsprincess and Truths were re-taking their wedding vows and invited us all along to their home to witness it. They looking stunning and it was a very touching ceremony. Afterwards everyone was dancing and there were only a couple of us ladies without partners there, so I went and sat on the bench to take some photos. SL was playing up a bit and it was laggy for me, but I managed to take some good shots and so did Hibiscus who later joined me on the bench for a chat.
We had a really good time and Princess and Truths had made a wonderful setting for their party, everything was perfect for them. They re-new their SL wedding vows every year and I wish them many more years of happiness!
