Take Me Out!

I should just have a default disclaimer for each post that I am slow. As I said in the last entry, my real life is super stressful right now because my Dad is bed-ridden in the hospital battling cancer and various complications from the treatment. My Mom is also up in years and can't drive, so we are back and forth to the hospital twice a day to visit, help with meals, and to make sure he's getting proper care.
Between that and taking over the finances and family in and out of town, I seem to come up short on time to apply myself to something creative. It's just life, though, that we can't get to an outlet when we need it the most, right?! And it is truly a blessing in disguise that I have no life (haha) and am able to help take care of my parents during this trial.

With that said, I've put together a fun, flirty outfit that's perfect for just going out for a good time and forgetting the struggle if even just for a moment. The only thing missing is a dance partner. :D

My Sanctuary

I sort of dropped the ball right out of the gate on this blogging thing, lol.
Real life is real lately, so I don't have a lot of time to put into things that take actual brain work, and this blog is something I'd really prefer not to do half-assed. I have been able to tour some of the new monthly fairs and will hopefully have a couple new outfits to share. I still haven't had a chance to edit any of the latest snapshots I've taken, so today I will share photos of my Linden home, lol.

Brena's House 
I chose the Quad model home from the Meadowbrook collection that Linden offers Premium subscribers. I bit on the half price deal they had recently, so the selection of homes was rather sparse since I'm sure several others jumped on the offer. It wasn't exactly what I expected considering it's literally one quarter of a quadraplex that I share with three other residents. However, it's a more reasonable size for the 117-prim limit. I found in my other Linden homes that I was out of prim space before finishing one room. And I really don't require much privacy, so it ended up being perfect for me.

Playing my Piano in Piano 
When I landed at this home, I was stoked to see that it's on a sim called Piano. So naturally, I HAD to get a piano for my place since I'm also a musician, and music is a big part of my life. I will probably never own a grand piano in my first life, so yay for SL.

  The Hookah NookThis is my Hookah Nook! I love the beaded curtains and bohemian look I squeezed out of this seemingly purposeless area. I've yet to find some decent animations for the seating and hookah, but it's still aesthetically pleasing -- and there's lava lamps!

I think I did an okay job on it considering I'm limited to 117 prims. I am constantly trying to budget them in the best way I can figure out. There's actually a lot of low-prim furniture designers out there who feel my pain, so that's a huge help. Overall, it's a great, comfy place, and it's where I spend most of my time in SL. Thanks for looking! :)
