So, I have this friend. Her name is Cate Footman, and she is pretty marvelous. She’s got a kind heart, a gentle soul, and has this really kick ass venue called !ndustry. I’m sure you’ve heard of it. If you haven’t, quit living under the rock and check it out. It’s a really great place, filled with other wonderful people like Cate. It’s my favorite place to spend time on the grid when I’m not being an antisocial avatar hiding out on my platform.
I’ve known Cate for quite a while now and I feel really fortunate to have such a wonderful person in my Second Life. I’m so honored to call her my friend. She dedicates so much of her time in energy here in Second Life trying to create a great place for others to enjoy and love. I admire that so much in a person. She puts other people’s happiness before her own and it shows in everything she does. It’s hard to find genuine, trustworthy friends in Second Life, and she’s someone who found her way into my tiny little circle of trust, and found a permanent fixture there. If you are ever at !ndustry and you see Cate being her happy hostess/owner self, don’t hesitate to say hi. You won’t regret it.
Cate and I had a lot of fun
shitting in the streets posing for this photo in this adorable attire from Erratic. Erratic has become one of my favorite stores on the grid. Anytime Ms. Rain releases something new, I scramble to purchase it. I don’t have many stores like that, and I don’t shop too often, so for me…that’s a big deal! Her quality is unmatched, and her items are always unique and something I know I’ll wear for a long time to come.

So now that September has hit, I feel like summer truly is fading away. I’ve been clinging to the final days of the warm season as the leaves begin to change colors. Trompe Loeil released this beautiful surf shack, and I knew it was the perfect place to soak up those last summer rays, and listen to the waves crash against the ocean shore. This shack is available at Uber this month, which btw is having a fantastic athletic inspired round.
So since summer is fading away, I’ve found that all sorts of wonderful new autumn items are popping up on the grid. That is the plus side to the changing seasons! Plus, let’s be honest, I do love Autumn. It’s my favorite season. So while I’m sad summer is ending, I’m also giddy to see all the new stuff hitting the grid and all the fall colors. Dust Bunny has released the most gorgeous two tree houses (they connect which is AMAZING) that I’ve seen on the grid. The attention to detail is absolute perfection, and I’m so excited to see how people use them on their sims. The collection also comes with all sorts of other gacha goodies which can be found at this round of The Arcade, which opened TODAY! I was checking out a lot of the items that will be featured this month, and I think the autumn round of The Arcade is always my favorite.
So hurry along and enjoy these last few weeks of summer… but get ready for all sorts of beautiful fall stuff!

I’ve always wanted a shiny gold bikini in Second Life, and today my dreams have been fulfilled! When I saw Blueberry post the ad for the newly updated Tyrkini on Flickr, I literally squealed out loud with delight! The bikini now comes with an update, with newly designed prints for you to choose from.
Also, I wanted to make mention of my hair! I’m wearing hair from Pr!tty, which is a new find for me. Thank you Melinda Childs for showing me this new hair store today, and for graciously sending the red hues my way! I am so pleased with how this hair fits! I’m so picky about my hair in Second Life and wear very few brands, so it’s a delight to find a new store to pick styles up from!
Hurry along now and pick yours up. I’m off to prance around the grid in my favorite new bikini and pretty new hair!
