There are things in this world that I love, that are entirely and completely useless. They have no discernible importance to the necessities of every day life, however I love them just the same. I know that a small container of china flowers has no real use, or even a miniature tea set, and yet I love them wholeheartedly. I could veer into a discussion of the use of a strawberry-scented lip balm, but you might find some importance in that. My (long-winded) point is, these little items bring colour to our days. The clothes I collect in SL – though the really have no discernible purpose – bring me joy. I say we keep collecting these items, and bring a bit more joy into the every day.
It’s Maai Time
Let’s get to hunting for some joy, shall we? First stop is Maai! They’ve got a new group gift out for the month of May, and you’ll be quite pleased when you stop by to get it! Join their free group, and you’ll gain access to two very nice dresses, including the one I have on (sized for Maitreya bodies). It’s a lovely teal shade, peppered with sparkling rhinestones and quite structured. Perfect for a night out!
And a Heel
Next stop is Adorsy – the latest gift of theirs is this really nice pair of heels that you can get by joining their group for free. They come sized for Maitreya and Legacy and the colour can be changed in the HUD to a dizzying array of hues. I kind of feel like I could take on the world in these heels! There are a few other gifts to pick up while you’re there too, so don’t miss those!
But Don’t Forget the Hair
I’ve been seeing a bit of a resurgence of flexi hair these days – and before you scoff, do give it a try again. Now and then it’s nice to see your hair move with you instead of sitting rigidly on your head. If you want to try this trend again (or for the first time if you’re a newer resident of Second Life), then head on over to Fabrixquare where you can pick up this lovely high ponytail (in black or white) for free. No need to join a group, just look on the counter! It pairs very nicely with your own hairbase to create the perfectly coiffed pony.
Have you found something to bring you joy today?
