2020 so far….

I think this this picture accurately sums up how 2020 has gone for most people so far. But, I shall focus on the main points. 2020 has…..turned me into a booze filled, sweary, cake craving, braless hot mess LOL! I started the year so optomistic. I applied for a new job and got it! Yay! Then lockdown started. Since then, I’ve steadily progressed to the pixelated version of me you now see before you. I hope there will be Christmas presents for family….but I still need to actually buy them. I hope that I’ll lose the lockdown weight I’ve gained, but I don’t know anymore. Thankfully I haven’t taken up smoking…YET…but we still have to survive December.

On a plus, the CBD infused toilet paper from Salt & Pepper has been very useful in calming me down. Thanks to the owner 😀

Soleil

As I put this picture together, all I could think about was the sun. Warmth. Heat. Summer. Sunshine. Sadly, in the Northern Hemisphere we have none of these currently and I am jealous of you Southern Hemisphere residents. However, soon there will be sun again and I shall feel it on my skin.

Basic

One fun thing about jeans is you can dress them up or down. Basic or Luxurious. Another fun thing I’m rediscovering inworld is BoM – or for us oldies, System layers reborn on a mesh body. Back in the good ol’ days of SL (2007 for me), there wasn’t such a thing as mesh. There were layers and prims. The layers ‘painted’ an appearance onto the body and the prim attachments provided shape, flex or embellishment to the outfit. We’d forever spend our days modding prims to look realistic, although some guys would mod the prims on their pants to look bigger (insert smirk here). With the re-emergence of BoM, all these old system layers can fit again. So embrace it. Layer up and enjoy the 2007 look….but in 2020.

Aqua Living

As we approach the end of the month, there are two things to consider: 1. where did July go?! I swear I woke up 5 mins ago and it was April aaaand 2. some events are coming to an end in the next couple of days so if you like something be quick quick. I am loving the nautical theme that keeps popping up this month; keep it coming! I’m not sure what August will bring us all (hopefully some nice heels), but it needs to include some fun and sun. Please ❤
