Home "Sweet" Bad Lands Home!

The whole time that the Bad Lands of Aenigma have been open, you've been allowed into the the world of one of it's inhabitants... You met her raptor accomplice - who was lost to the battles in the Bad Lands - and you've been with her on a food run to the diner, but now she's letting you in where she's most vulnerable! Now you're being allowed into her little sanctuary, the dilapidated shelter that she calls home in the heart of the Bad Lands... 
Not many could love a shack like this, but it's easily defend-able, and it's dry! Two major plus points, I'm sure! It's got all the things she needs, a hammock to sleep in, some water bottles and even old Grit Jerrycans that's have been attached to backpacks for easy carrying - thanks to cinful, they will fit any avatar size, since the straps are modifiable which is great news for avis big and small, but they can also be rezzed to make great props! 
As it may be our last trip into the Bad Lands, this may be the last time you see the kick ass little Rudhie she's become, but the fashion trip she's been on has been one of many post-Apocalyptic rides and it's been a lot of fun... This last look is a little more casual perhaps - in an outfit by BADA - I mean she's chilling at home after all, but maybe she's working on something... She looks kinda grubby - thanks to this Cold War tattoo from DeadBoy.Ink - and her Shelter Goggles - from milkyway - may kinda give that away... Maybe it's some more Bad Lands Jewellery?! I mean she's wearing some epic shinies... A choker of bullets, or an Ammo Choker some might say - from Six Feet Under, that yes I did make just a little bigger so you could see it under her chin more clearly, but it's now one of my new favourite jewellery items! - and this amazing Mayhem Face Chain - a gacha release from unstable for the current Aenigma round - made up of all the little pretties she's found as she's been exploring... As for what she will make next, that's an Aenigma!!! (Sorry it's too punny... I'm laughing out loud, like the lame ass I am hehe). 
I know it's not that clear in the main photo, so I'm being a good girl and including a close-up here so that you can really see the jewellery more closely...

Beach Cabana!

I feel like taking a vacation, somewhere hot and sunny so I can just chill in a shady spot on the beach with a good book and a mojito... I found this amazing place to take a break, at Dya's Scent of the Caribbean, you can relax and walk through the door onto the soft sandy beach... It's almost like heaven... 
In the lovely open house, on the Caribbean beach, I slipped into a girlie tropical bikini from Belle Epoque... and picked up my matching bag - both of these adorable Belle Epoque items are available at Anthem... Heading out to the beach... I am going to rest and relax!

Fae in the Dark Places

I got dragged away with the fairies again today, and deep in the underground mines I stumbled upon a magical cavern - deep in the Ethereal Forest... The fae within me was desperate to come out, and the dark magic swirled... I pulled out the wand that I keep in my boots - carved from a dead fairy skeleton - and let the magic take over... 
She's dark and mysterious, due to the magic from her dead fae wand, and she wears the Survivor Headpiece - a crown with the skull of a deer from Tentacio at Aenigma - and crystals that have been added to her necklace to enhance her powers... 
Isn't she pretty?!

Heading out into the Bad Lands in search of Food

The Bad Lands have been open for a couple of weeks now, and there's so much happened... Sorry it has taken me this long to write, but after losing my dinosaur buddy in the initial melee attacks I've been kinda busy defending myself, my home and everything that goes along with it... They call it the Bad Lands for a reason, ya know?! 
I finally managed to get out of the house for a while and head over to Tralala's Diner for something to eat, but I'd only leave the house while carrying my trusty Survivor's Cutlery - from Skellybones at Aenigma until July 15th. My face already bares the scars of the Imatra - a Nefekalum Tattoo - so I protect it behind a Badwolf MadMask and pierce my Orc Ears - which happen to be my favourite new ears released from Haro for Aenigma by the way - with claws of my enemies... 
I really hope the diner has burgers, but how good would the burgers be in the Bad Lands?!

Books on Tape

I LOVEEEEEE Reading... I've always been an avid reader, and over the past few days I've not been wanting to log into SL due to an overly busy few days at work and a feeling of depression... The biggest thing causing this is that I miss my RL family, so I've been avoiding anything that involves social interaction. Hence why I've been reading a lot... All kinda of books, in all different genres... I was wondering though, what do people think about books on tape?!
When I was younger, I enjoyed them. I would fall asleep listening all kinds of stories that would allow me to drift off into all kinds of different magical, fantastical lands... As I got older though, I stopped listening to these tapes and started reading more for myself. I still love disappearing to those magical, fantastical lands, but I've started finding it better to read it and create the voices in my own head and bring the characters to life... 
What do others think? Do you enjoy them? Is there anyone that you'd recommend reading stories?

Missing Melody's Market

I felt like having a really lazy Sunday today... The weather had cooled down a little bit and I'm hoping that it's more like normal right now... Yet it got me in the mood to go out exploring, and that lead me to the gorgeous sim of Missing Melody... 
It's such a pretty location, with a farmish area, and the carnival and market spaces that I spent a good deal of time just wandering around, planning that I'd be back and even - something that I never normally find myself doing - planning photos I'd want to take within locations at this gorgeous place!! 
I wasn't even planning on taking any photos but happened to almost accidentally luck myself into this shot of myself browsing the market stalls... I got some lovely bread, and a bottle of wine for supper and even some flowers for my table... I'm still debating if I should go back for clowns, but there is a stall with some gorgeous teddybears too... UGH decisions decisions... 

What is she wearing; 
Hair: TRUTH - Athena in Redhead (Past Group Gift) 
Skin: amara beauty - Freya in Ivory

Stay Proud!

The month of June is almost at it's end, and with it we will soon see the end of Pride Month... This year, Pride Month has taken on a different slant - telling you to be proud not just of who you love but also to stand up and fight for those that are different especially in the Black Lives Matter protests... Yet it all boils down to the fact that everyone, no matter race, sexuality or all of those intricacies that make us different and special, should be equal... Love is Love, and the colour of your skin or the body that you're in shouldn't make you less or more important... 
I've heard people wonder why I'm so excited about all of the pride goodies that I've been shopping for like a demon possessed... We'll let me enlighten you... First off, they may be right I'm not LGBTQ myself - unless you could count a few dalliances whilst I was at university and the feeling that I love love and wouldn't care what shape or form the person came in - but I have a lot of friends and family that are, both in SL and RL... I'd consider myself an ally if push comes to shove... I'm there to support, to applaud and to be family for those whose family pushed them away for being different. Secondly though, and this is definitely a silly reason... IT'S RAINBOWS EVERYWHERE PEOPLE!!!! Who doesn't love rainbows?! I love them... Seeing them in the sky always brings a smile to my face, but I cannot get enough of them no matter what way they come... I love all things dark and macabre, but dammit how can anyone not love a rainbow!!! 
There's still time to check out all of the awesome Pride events, including the SL Pride at Home mainstore crawl - but whatever happens, no one should change you, stay proud of who you are, and stand up for what you believe in!!!

Hair: Wasabi - Shae Hair in Fireworks
