A Little Nonsense

Check this out! I hit the motherlode! The folks at MadPea made a darling collection of gacha items for the Arcade this month, and I lined them all up (after I played with each one, of course). Each one is interactive in its own special way, from the goofy Sticky Finger I wore on my finger and flung around to the barking doggy that I had to turn off because it drove me nuts to the musical guitar you can wear and play like you did when you were 5 and your dad hoped he was raising another Eric Clapton to the ultra rare robot. These fun pieces can be won and traded or given away or you can use one in your own special photo for the MadPea Rewind & Play Photo Contest. To find out more about that, click through on the link to their Facebook page and the rules are listed there. Important thing is it ends September 30.

My Attic opened again and this darling dress from LacunaInc is one of the great fashions being offered there. The dress is a great little mini for the coming fall with a nice cowl neck and a short skirt. The textures are rich and the silhouette is sexy. I matched up Kenadeecole’s strappy wedges from No21, which she has made for both Slink and Belleza feet. They also have a HUD for choosing metal colors and an optional translucent cuff around the ankle.

A Little Nonsense

That being said, I am again wearing the Venus mesh body from Tricky Boucher. I want to reinterate that it’s easy to wear mesh clothing with this shape by using the alpha area of the HUD and editing your shape. It works brilliantly and look how great my legs look! And I don’t have to shuffle hands around. I am so relieved to not have to deal with that.

My skin is Shyla Diggs’ newest and wow, I am impressed. As always, Shyla doesn’t fail to impress with beautifully shaped brows, gorgeous eye makeups, muted and lush lips, a darling nose. With or without the mesh body, this is a skin worth having.

Elikapeka Tiramisu has been rather quiet, pursuing her first life I presume, but she does have a store with some gorgeous mesh hairs with her lovely textures. Elika was one of the first in SL, kids. And she still can pull it off. This hair comes with a great texture-change HUD and, as you can see, some sleek styling.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ~  John Lubbock, The Use Of Life


Summer doesn’t always have to be about tending your garden or sowing your vegetables or mowing the lawn. Sometimes it’s just good to lie down and take in the sunshine, enjoy the breeze and the flowers. I am doing that with some new outdoor furnishings. First a great cushion Sway Dench had made with several poses, perfect for a garden reverie. I love the sheer curtains and the whole idea of a place to just daydream.


Sway has also made some lovely garden benches in several colors (neutral or colors) that you could scatter about a garden or even a plaza, they are so nicely made. They include several unique poses—not just the boring sitting around kind.

I visited the Aloha Fair and got this great little dress from Antonia Millar that includes several different lovely summery floral textures on a texture-change HUD.  I ran to No21 and had to get this jewelry set from Diaxm. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous, all mesh, with great textures and design. We need more jewelry like this in SL!  My great little wedges are Eudora3D’s offering at Uber, with a great HUD that allows texture change on the metal, the two straps and the wedge itself. I loved playing with the different color combos and if you buy two or more color ways, you can mix and match the colors across the HUDs.


My chair and umbrella I found at the Aloha Fair as well. Myrrine made four lovely different chairs with an umbrella that has a texture change built in to match to any chair. Love the textures. Love the restful recline.

Kavar Cleanslate premiered this great side fishtail braid at Uber. He includes little starfish you can add to the style, but I wasn’t feeling the mermaid vibe this time. The hair looks terrific with this gorgeous skin from Inka Mexicola in one of her newer revamped shades.
