Shopped til I Dropped

Last night I indulged myself in SL the way I won’t allow myself to indulge in my FL. Can I blame Oura???? Sigh. Not really. It was MY idea to go back to Christmas at the House of Avro so I could buy Oura a motorized reindeer. 🙂 Once there, and the reindeer safely in Oura’s inventory, we started to look around. I can’t resist rides and there was a trolley! So we hopped on and rode about the sim. There are several stores there all focused on the holiday/winter season. I saw many things that appealed. Most of the outfits I liked were copy/mod/no transfer. I saw a great sweater outfit that I thought Lalo might like. And that’s when I fell off the no-shopping wagon.

In order to buy a gift, I needed to sign into the SL Marketplace. I’ve not done that in ….. forever? I tend to browse online and then go to the stores to buy. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I am terrible at reading directions. Oura walked me through buying via the Marketplace. Then we went a little crazy, browsing and shopping there. Wow. *grin* There is a LOT of stuff there. A lot of FREE holiday gifts also. Oura is VERY good at finding bargains.

In the midst of our online shopping spree, a message came out from our SL Divine Diva Group, a group for the folk who LOVE shopping at Lemania Indigo Designs. There was an “A” on the Lucky Chair! Wildcard Prize!!! How could I not go? So we tp’d over to Lemania. I arrived upside down (I REALLY need to remove that animation from the HUD) and with things rezzing slowly, but I managed to sit on the chair and score the prize. 🙂 Since we were THERE, we picked up the group gift. Played in the Christmas animations. Then hopped back to Avro’s Christmas to check out decorations.

Christmas at the House of Avro has a lot of free holiday decorations. In the photo on top you can see that I indulged with the hot cider and the hat and a snowball. You can see the pine swag that I won the other night. What’s that on my head? Silly you. Those are my reindeer antlers complete with mistletoe. Get it??? I’m under the mistletoe. /me waits for a kiss. 🙂

We did a bit of shopping online. But we also went to the stores and shopped “in avatar”. That’s a lot of fun and you see many more interesting items that way. The Marketplace is convenient, and necessary for giving gifts at times. But please remember to patronize the stores inworld. I promise that you will find that experience rewarding.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. WOW, your list is MUCH shorter than mine… /me wonders how that happened. LOL. I had a great time. Love to go shopping with a girlfriend in rl or sl.

    BTW: Kisses
