So I’m hanging out at my sweetheart’s cabin trying to help decorate and I look out of the window to find my little sister, Aura dragging in a smaller tree from Tiny Trinkets. I guess we’re having a BYOT (bring your own tree) party? LOL
I swear she just gets into everything! C’mon mini me. Let’s get you and this tree inside before Mr. Bear gets us both.
Growing up, my mother had this artificial white Christmas tree. She LOVED that tree. Over the years, the chemical that’s on the needles started peeling and she wouldn’t replace the tree. I think she loved it that much…or we couldn’t find another white tree…I don’t know. Every year, without fail we whipped out the box and I helped assemble the tree. But with the chemical coating peeling on the needles I became allergic later in life to the point that after putting the tree together my arms would be itching so bad, I felt like I was about to scratch my arms off.
The holidays have become less meaningful to me over the years. I don’t particularly care about decorating or large dinners or anything like that. I could be happy with a sandwich and chips so long as I’m with the right people. But this year is different. It’s bittersweet because she’s gone. And if it meant she were here with me, I’d assemble all of the white Christmas trees everywhere I could find just to have her here with me. At least I can have one in here though. That way a small piece of her is in here with me.

Visiting my sis and her grandbaby today, I snuck over to her dancing mirror to snap a few shots right quick. Thoroughly enjoying my new flip flops and top from Project Reject.
Paired with their new top and a halter (couldn’t let my niece see the girls… 😛 ) underneath, I felt so relaxed and easy breezy. Ya know…one thing I love about applier wear for the mesh body…you can layer to your heart’s content and make it all come together. 🙂 Aaaaaaaaaaaanyway, it’s a scorcher here this weekend. Maybe we should stay indoors with the air on and just practice ballet on her bar. We’ll see… 😉
Ciao for now, kiddos!

Back in July of this year (after about a year of beta testing), Linden Labs released the Experience Tools; something I’m still learning about but have definitely had the joy of … experiencing (no pun intended… -.-).
This year I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying this new feature of SL, courtesy of two games released this year by MadPea: Unia and The Interview (released April 3, 2016). Now, if you’re unfamiliar with how experiences work, you get a hud (which if you’ve gone on MadPea Hunts before, you should be familiar with their huds already) and the first time you use it, the HUD will ask you for permissions to change environments, teleport you, attach things to you, etc. as seen below:
This thing is TRIPPY…but really, REALLY cool! Anyway…ON TO THE INTERVIEW!!
Their newest game, The Interview, is a game that contains a slew of puzzles and brain teasers, that guide you along your path to reach … the final interview; starting you off with a quest where you have to tp around to I think it’s 12 (?) stores and collect these boxes. Inside the boxes are coins and on the boxes are pieces of a code you’ll later need to go to the next level of the game. Now the cool thing with this hud that has all the features needed to help you through this game are already in the hud. For instance, the cell phone feature also works as a radar to help guide you to where you find the boxes. On completion, you have a code you have to put into your vault (no two people’s codes are the same…so no cheating!!) and from there, you’re whisked away to start your interview. Without giving away too much more than I already have, I will tell you the basics.
There are 3 different levels of huds: bronze, silver and gold. Each costs Lindens, but the highest package (which I bought) will also unlock 2 additional gaming tasks that yield you more prizes on completion. If you’re one that loves puzzles, brain teasers and prizes…this is the package for YOU!
Time Limits: Yes y’all…this game has time limits! I might have my timing off on this, but I believe that once you start your Interview, each place you are sent gives you ten minutes to solve the puzzle in the room you’re in. As a courtesy, you’ll get a 5 minutes left warning as well as a 1 minute left warning. After your time is up, you’ll be tp’d to a waiting area. But fear not! You can go right back into the instance (provided no one else is in there…did I mention only 1 person per room at a time?) by clicking the hourglass icon on your hud.
Clues, coins (and a way out): Ok. So in every room, there is a phone. If you use the phone, the phone will cost you 1 coin per call (you’ll see the value on your hud). Each room gives you 3 clues via phone. But let’s say you have tried the room so many times you’ve gone stir crazy. There is a way out…an access panel on the wall allows you a puzzle override, but…it will cost you 5 coins. Now fear not. Coins are VITAL to this game. So if you run out, just head to the main reception area or the waiting room and there are coin vendors on the wall that allow you to buy more.
Getting to the finish line: This game is both easy and difficult, with lots of things to solve and figure out. Two things I advise above all else: 1 – take notes (in case you need to go back later) and 2 – join the MadPeas group inworld!! For starters, the group is free. But most important, there’s a plethora of people playing the game at different levels who can help you. In fact, you’re encouraged to ask questions! Now while they won’t flat out tell you the answers as they don’t want to ruin it for everyone, you will receive additional hints and some will even IM you so as to keep the suspense going for everyone else in the game.
And once you get to the final puzzle, you’ll be handsomely rewarded. It’s a great game and you can go back as many times as you need to finish your side quests. So if you’re looking for epic ways to work your brain and find something new and different to do in SL…head over to the MadPeas sim and play The Interview today! You’ll have fun I promise!
Ciao for now kiddos!

So while invading the Thick Event with my sisters and then venturing to 100 Block on my own this past weekend to get the new Reign Platforms and a new hair, I totally ended up forgoing what I wanted and found something I needed: my new wig! So this is how it went down: I was so consumed with getting the hair I saw at one of the hair stores first that I bypassed the Reign booth. I got to the hair I wanted, tried it on and while I liked it, I saw this avi walk in with this really cute hair! So me being nosey, I asked her where she got it and immediately tp’d out to go get it.
I tried it on and I swear it was just what I needed! Sufficed to say, I’m in love. I love the descending cut from back to front, the layering and the fade to purple is actually one I can stand as it looks like natural highlighting versus a gradient stop halfway down the hair!
Then I went and got my platforms from Reign! I love this shoe! It’s open toe and reminds me a little bit of a platform mary jane I used to wear in here long ago. And since I can’t wear any kind of heel IRL, rock these puppies I did! And I rocked them all night long!
And just as I was dancing around with my new hair, one of my favorite jams came on and bam…this blog was titled. LOL
So later gators. This chica’s got some work, shopping and other things to get into.
See you at the borderline… 😉
