I had forgotten how fun family parties can be when you are there for the entire evening and not rocking up at the last minute like I was doing for the past seven years. My four day weekend is coming to an end and it has been amazing. 3/4 days were parties with either side of my parents families and I experienced my first ‘boodle’ which is where all the food is laid out along a table covered in banana leaves and you eat with your hands. It’s a Filo tradition. I couldn’t do it, well I did but not how the rest of my family could and I even attempted to use two skewers as chopsticks, that failed..
Christmas night was less eventful but by no means less fun, we played Articulate on the dining table. It’s a game where you have to describe the word on the card without saying it’s name and you’re under a timer. I realise that my trivia knowledge is quite limited and I do not know the world as much as I thought I did.
I binge watched Stranger Things in two days (thank you Netflix!) and I will not watch that show again at night, didn’t realise it also has quite a few spooky creatures that had me fast forwarding those particular scenes. I adore Mike and Eleven, they are so young and pure but adorable as a couple! The conspiracy theories behind the town of Hawkins had me thinking a lot but it was a good series and I’ll be one of those fans eagerly waiting for Season 3.
Boxing Day (today) I avoided the shops until the afternoon and instead spending my evening listening to my music on Itunes and browsing tumblr and writing a segment into one of my four main stories that I have saved on my laptop. I also revamped my tumblr layout, it needed a change after so long. Back to work tomorrow but it is only for 3 days then I got another 3 days off because of New Years day, yayy for working hotel reservations!
I have been on a roll with taking photos lately on Second Life, though I do not blog for fashion from there anymore, I shop for fun and randomly to save my money.
I have been hit by a creative spark with my photos and it seems because of it, it is reflecting in getting more likes than my usual 20. They have been varying in theme and colour, though pink of course is still present in some of them.
Some of them are focused on the seasons surrounding my avatar, some are focused on the features of my cottage or the new accessories that I have bought at the new round of events. These four pictures I am sharing are my recent shots I have uploaded, the below photo has recieved 47 favourites from the flickr followers, I haven’t recieved many likes in a while so quite happy with this achievement.
Two of them have been a pin-up theme from the recent round of Rewind which is all about the 1940s. The top photo is taken at Elysion sim on the roof of their Luxe theatre where they have burlesque shows every month. The second photo is taken in the comfort of my own pixel home, focusing on the amazing crystal rings by Yummy at this month’s round of Collabor88.
The third photo has a background made by Astralia which is featured in Rewind: 1940s this month and the lingerie is by Moon Elixir for the latest round of ROMP, an adult/kink event. The last photo is taken in a skybox on my home sim featuring the background house made by Foxcity poses for November round of Pocket gacha. The pose itself is also by Foxcity, top by Candydoll and shorts by Villena. My tentacle companion is by Katat0nik from last month’s round of Panic of the Pumpkin.
Fashion tile inspiration is minimal lately as I have been saving up my money for the Europe trip, flying out in two days! Can’t believe it is finally here 😀 But I still take random photos and they are of the pink variation. Sharing four of them here for you all to check out.
This was a random outfit I created on the day, it was after I had done my complete shopping at The Crystal Heart festival and one of my dear friends Misa had created Catwa eyelashes and sent them to me as a gift. I am wearing one of them in the photo above, plus it was a cute outfit complete with holding Artemis in my arms 😛
This outfit was made just today and taken inside the photobooth at The Sugar Garden main store. Decided to attach its details since it is my latest outfit. I have been making so many outside my usual colour scheme of pink so returning to it today.

Top is from The Crystal Heart and the pose is made by Lyriqz Xue, he is going all bento and though majority of his poses are showing the rude fingers he has been making adorable poses including the above. His marketplace store is called Reve Obscura. Taken in the safety of my cottage with a pink windlighting. The sunglasses are by Imeka and hair by Truth.
The final photo is a bit of a nip tease with the bra made by Vision for the new subscription box catering to those of the lifestyle: Bound, I decided to get it after seeing other bloggers share the items on their pages. The Pusheen is from another subscription box that unfortunately has been cancelled due to the maker being dodgy in their transcations. Such a shame too because the designers that released items into that box were always so cute and magic girl. Taken on my home sim but the background is one of Astralia’s designs.
I am so sorry I haven’t been posting anything on here for the past five days, I hope I haven’t lost a couple of the new followers that added me this past week. If that is the case, I am sorry again. Work has been crazy and I am learning so many new procedures and doing projects that come with being a team leader. My front office manager said I have to do the work before I get the title, one of my assistant managers is also leaving end of June and I have this feeling that after having experience as a team leader, I too will leave this property I have been for almost four years now, I think it is time to move on.
Three nights ago, I also had a bleeding nose at 2am, just when I thought I was over my fear of my blood and that episode just proved I am still not over it and still freak out. I know it is a mental issue and no matter how many times my parents tell me to not panic because it is not life threatening, I still flail and call for help. Day after and I started getting the beginning stages of a cold, today I have been sleeping majority of the day until the afternoon when I dropped my dad off to the bus stop, he is going into the city to catch up with some old work mates.
Normally I go into the city because T.G.I.F but I think for tonight, I will just get some takeaway and eat from home, I am back to work tomorrow morning and I know working AM shifts this weekend will definitely not help me get over this common cold. Opened up a new public room on IMVU and been hanging with my girls on there, finding it more fun than staying parked in my cottage on Second Life, that mood to log into the universe seems to be diminishing every week.
Mum is also coming home from working overseas and will land in the morning, I won’t see her until I finish my shift though at 3pm and perhaps catch up at my aunt’s 60th birthday. It is an afternoon event.
As you readers and followers know I have been posting for my warlock Andais and my Yakuza Ame for a while now, they are my main characters when it comes to short stories here on the Luci Logs. I have also been easing up in my posting every single day and struggling with making a new fashion tile recently. I have instead turned back to traditional writing notes and ideas in my notebooks.
Before I was on my laptop before Second Life and IMVU ever existed in my life, I had so many coloured notebooks and random writing pads with story ideas from primary school all the way up to college post high school. My imagination back then was more innocent but more detailed and vivid in story making. Two days ago I went to watch Finding Dory again but this time with my work colleagues, after our lunch and movie I was taken to a $2 dollar Japanese store that sold the cutest stationary ever!
Bought myself a small black, leather bound notepad and been writing a new story idea in it since, I was inspired by all the sci-fi, post apocalyptic movies I been watching lately especially Mad Max: Fury road. The characters were designed on the website Doll divine and each of the girls were inspired by my dear international friends and bestie Mei. I just hope I can lift all this note taking and biographies into a story format then see it fall through again.
