It’s so hooooooooot …

… and I’m outside enjoying it, playing with the kids, going on day trips, visiting friends and family – and just playing RL …

But tonight, my bf wanted to check out Fantasy Football so instead of reading and watching House, we both got online – and I so enjoyed spending some time back in SL again. I wanted to get some sorting done – my inventory is a huge mess again, so cluttered – but of course, I hardly did anything. I unpacked a couple of boxes – and then I went to The Dressing Room, to Fashionable Late, to League, Boho Hobo and a couple of other places and bought more stuff … It’s not like I need anything when I don’t spend more time in SL than I do at the moment – but SL shopping is so hard to resist while SL inventory cleaning is the easiest thing in the world to resist. At least, I’m almost ready to do anything else than sit down and get sorting. So here I am, relaxing on some rather new lounges from Zoe’s Garden (at least I think they’re rather new – I’ve kind of lost track of everything while away), wearing a bikini I bought a while ago but never put on.

  • Bikini: Sabrina6 – Kara Dresler for K-code 
  • Necklace: NoTime Necklace – Line (Available at this week’s Fashionably Late)
  • Glasses: Hipster Peepers (candy gloss) – Miel Nirvana for Miel

(Oh – and I didn’t mean to hoot like an owl in the title – just meant to emphasize that it’s really really hot here 😉 )

Summer is here!

Summer has definitely arrived. It’s so hot here! Not that I’m complaining – with the short summer we usually have, I’m enjoying every second of it. Even though I’m spending most of the day indoors, watching the Wimbledon …!

Good thing then, that I can put on a bikini, spend all day on a beach and relax on a gorgeous raft in Second Life!

The raft is a new offering from Zoe’s Garden. As usual, it has several great reading poses – today, however, I was more in the mood to just relax. And it’s perfect for that whether you want to just lie down with a hand in the water or sit and enjoy the sun – and there’s even couple poses for those so inclined. The raft was part of yesterday’s Moody Monday but with Adele being so busy with the SL Designers Remix event, she haven’t had time to take it down so it’s still available for 55 L$ – but hurry!

What I’m wearing:

  • Bikini: Elish Bikini (Classic Camo) – Nyte Caligari for Nyte’n’Day
  • Hair: Nina (Cranberry – Roots)  – Kavar Cleanslate for Exile
  • Makeup: Makeup (Green & Bronze) – elysium eilde for *elymode*

Black Horse – Black Dress

I bought a horse! To comfort myself after finding out I need surgery in my back, I decided to buy a horse. A beautiful black stallion. I made the smart decision to ask my animal lover friend Jinny which horse to buy, and she recommended horses from xxx. I went, took one for a ride and fell in love with it. Jinny joined me for a little while showing off some of her horses and here, a couple days later, I own my own horse.

So far we’re only getting to know each other so we haven’t been on any big adventures. My pretty boy is just hanging out in this gorgeous garden from Zoe’s Garden I also talked about yesterday.

Now, getting a horse is a grand occasion – and for that, you need an amazing outfit. I’ve had this dress from Elemiah in my inventory for about a week, waiting for the right occasion and well, this is it. It’s an amazing lace bodysuit with a huge flexi skirt you can choose if you want to wear or not. It’s such a gorgeous dress and besides it being a gorgeous dress, I can see myself wearing the pants part as leggings, the shirt part as a sexy shirt – maybe even the skirt part for something. So it’s gorgeous in itself, you can wear it in different ways – and you can use it for other outfit too. What’s not to like?? Pretty, pretty, pretty – and versatile!

  

What I’m wearing:

  • * Dress: Nemi (black) – Elemiah Choche for Elemiah Design
  • Shoes: Nicole (black) – “Mayden Couture”
  • Necklace: IRENE necklace – Squinternet Larnia for Donna Flora

I’m not a fan of bling but luckily these shoes come with the option to turn bling off-on as one sees fit. Off for me, thanks!

Reading in my Garden

Actually, it’s not my garden. It’s Zoe’s Garden. Or – rather – I got the garden from Zoe’s Garden so it’s both Zoe’s and mine. And Zoe is a dog so … Let’s just stick to calling it my garden. This is a nice little garden with a tree, a tree stub, a little hill, water through, a barrel and an old-fashioned bicycle. It’s a lovely place to sit and read a book and just relax. I placed it on a sky platform high up in the sky so this is truly a peaceful place to just be in.

Now, when I first got the garden, it had some issues with the tree. The top kept disappearing. I IM’ed the owner of Zoe’s Garden, Adele Rhiadra, and she’s just the sweetest person. She came and looked at the garden to see what was wrong, corrected the mistake and then sent the fixed garden – as well as presents – to everyone who had purchased the garden. She felt so bad about the error and wanted to make it right for everyone. It’s so nice to meet a store owner who goes out of her way to correct something.

Another thing I really like about Zoe’s Garden is that many of the things comes with books and poses for reading. Now I love reading in RL (although SL has kind of taken a lot of my reading time lately) and apparently, so does Adele and that’s why she includes the books and poses in her gardens, benches … Love that!
