We're all social distancing together!

Looking for ways to make isolation more tolerable? There are lots of events and activities in SL to help pass your time. Some of the items I'm featuring today come from the Stay at Home Club, which is free to join and the goodies they provide are also free. I used the Artist's Shack from Loggin' Off Homes and the Statue poses from PosESioN in today's pictures.

I chose to set up a an art studio. You might want to do a gardening shed or a boudoir. 
Go check out the gifties. I'll wait here...

Now that you have a new dwelling, you'll need some furnishings for it, so stop by S-Design where you'll find several collections that include rugs, tables, chairs and lots of house plants. 
I used the Bogor Chair, Side Table and Light in Aqua and Bogor Ratan Basket, as well as Juliet Flowers in Aqua, Brown & White Vases and a Sharon Area Rug in Aqua, all color coordinated and available at S-Design.

The Calico Cat from Wild Hound Designs didn't come with the basket. I found him sleeping in MP but look how perfectly he fits in there!
For those touches that make a house a home, head to the Bunny Hop 2 egg hunt and see if you can find these spring themed items from [QE] Designs
It won't be easy because there are multiple eggs from nearly 70 different stores in the hunt. Eggs are priced from L$0-L$25. 
You'd better hop right over there: BH2 ends April 14.

 
[QE] Home Throw Rug Spring Floral [5 textures], Vintage Hatboxes [box and lid tinted separately in pink or yellow] , Pillow Stack Spring [4 textures for each pillow], Blanket Basket Spring [3 textures for each pillow and the blanket].  You'll also find a cute Bohemian set for the Stay at Home Club at the [QE] Main store, but you didn't hear that from me!

When your new hideaway is finished, get dressed in one of the new outfits you found in the [QE] eggs at BH2 and invite your friends to come see your new place. It's SL, after all, so we can hang out with our friends without worrying about social distancing. Open some liquid refreshment and laugh together. You'll all feel better!

Roses Among the Ruins

In the face of all the news about the virus, SL might seem a little irrelevant to some. 
I'd like to remind you that those of us in SL are ahead of the curve:
  • We're used to working independently and entertaining ourselves from our homes. 
  • We're used to being "close" to people who may be half a world away. 
  • We realize we don't have to touch someone in order to put our arms around them.
  • We know that feelings expressed in chat are just as real as those whispered in an ear.

Stay in touch with those who mean the most to you, your immediate family and friends both online and those living in RL isolation. Most importantly, stay in touch with your own sense of beauty and inner worth and with the higher powers you honor. 
The world will change. It has crumbled and been rebuilt countless times in the past. We have no way of predicting what tomorrow will bring, but we are connected in ways our forbearers could have never imagined. If we all work together, we will get through this.

I.M.C. @ Designer Showcase * created my lovely outfit. The jumpsuits and shrugs are sold separately or in fatpacks and are available in a variety of colors and patterns. The textures are wonderful and there are nice touches like the little eyelets and lacing down the legs of the jumpsuit.

Party Time!


You're invited to an early St Patrick's Day Party Thursday, March 12 4-6 SLT.  
My buddy, Shadow Otter, will DJ. The sim is a tribute to the gone-but-not-forgotten Deception television series. It's family and furry friendly and has a lot going on, so come on over for some fun! Here is your TAXI.

I opted out of wearing green to go with basic black in an outfit from SAS. 
The separate top and pants are trimmed with sparkles and there is also a more revealing applier top for those times you want to be really sexy. The coat is included for a refined but comfortable look. 
  • I'm wearing the heels that came in my Vanessa outfit from Wild (see the outfit blog HERE). The hud includes 9 colors and I really like the style.
  • My jewelry from Moondance Boutique has green pearls to save me from pinches. 
  • My look is available @ Designer Showcase* till March 28. 
  • My nails are from Mani Pedi, of course. I'm wearing Vegas Neon to honor the Deception connection and because they're perfect for a green celebration.
