Ballet of the Night

One of the most hilarious memories I can recall from high school was the reason my history book gave to why we call Louis XIV the Sun King. It was supposedly because of a ballet play he composed in which he played a sun king, and wore a matching ballet suit for that role as well, while his nobles danced around him as if they were planets rotating around the sun. This fine piece of art was called the Ballet of the Night. I remember laughing for ages when my friends and I discussed all of the ridiculous but fabulous phenomenons during this era in France, namely regarding what took place in Versailles. It was mostly because my studybooks explained everything in a rather mocking manner. If only I had a photographic memory so I could quote exactly what it said. Trust me, you would laugh too. If only I had a photographic memory in general though, that would make studying so much easier!

Speaking of which, I have to get back to do some lovely studying. I have been distracted for way too long. Goshdarn, Second Life, always tempting me to log on and have fun…

Before I go I will quickly break down what I’m wearing. First off, I’m wearing a crop top from Hilly Haalan. I matched it with these adorable and stylish shoes by K.C. Couture. Both of these are exclusives at the current round of Designer Showcase. Designer Showcase had a makeover this month and has returned to the grid looking better than ever. Make sure you pay a visit, it’s looking absolutely wonderful over there!
The hair I’m wearing is from KoKoLoReS and it’s currently available at Suicide Dollz together with this sweet choker from RANSOM.

Finally, today’s tunespiration is a song by Ariana Grande from her newest album Dangerous Woman. It’s a song that reminds me of the “Yours Truly”-era, which was my favorite Ari phase. I still jam out to that album every week. The songs from that album are just so delicate and lovely, I truly can’t stop loving it. Anyway, have a listen! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. This is Moonlight by Ariana Grande.

“Every look, every touch makes me wanna give you my heart
I’d be crushin’ on you, baby
Stay the way you are

Cause I never knew, I never knew
You could have moonlight in your hands
‘Til the night I held you
You are my moonlight
Moonlight”
– Ariana Grande, Moonlight

TGIF! I’m wishing all of you the greatest weekend and I hope you will all have lots of fun!

I started my Friday off by admiring one of my now favorite urban sims, Virtual Decay. I dressed up in some fierce attire from The Little Bat and the On the Boardboard Gacha Fair, which is a quarterly gacha event, hosted by Drusilla Dethly (designer of The Little Bat). Both the event and the store are located in the Nuvoletta region, together with a couple of other stores. Altogether Nuvoletta brings a dark and slightly twisted, but a wonderful shopping experience that I would recommend to any Second Life resident who is remotely interested in dark fashion and style.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a Second Life adventure, but it was about time that Chloë Swaggins left her little hobbit hole to go out and explore the seemingly infinite amount of regions and locations on the Second Life grid. So I packed my bag and ran off my platform, kinda looking like this:

My first destination was the *Everwinter* Post Apocalyptic Theme Park, inspired by the abandoned amusement park in the city of Pripyat. The Pripyat amusement park was an upcoming amusement park, meant to open on May 1, 1986, but was never finished due to the Chernobyl disaster that occured on April 26.

Upon arriving at the sim you will be offered a notecard and a flashlight. The notecard contains all kind of useful information for as well the regular visitor as for photographers and bloggers. The flashlight is actually quite handy too as it is rather dark at the park (with the region default windlight at least). Walking around with the flashlight and your sound on will most definitely contribute to your experience at the park.

Last week I introduced you to Space Babe, now meet Beach Babe! I am very original with names as you can probably tell by now.

My sweet friend Ever who you might know from her blog Happily, Ever Afterr, which is a really clever name by the way, blogged about the region 4Play a few days ago. 4Play (also a very clever name) is an adult sim but as Ever said, besides the ad boards for adult services, it is pretty tame. You can read a bit more about the sim on Ever’s blog.

I’m rarely blonde on SL. If I am, it’s mostly for blogging purposes but I’ve been considering going blonde on a more regular basis for this month. I figured that could be a new and fun experience. So let’s see if blondes truly have more fun!

The new round of Roulett3 has opened bringing us new and discounted goodies! Furthermore The Garage Fair has also opened its doors. The Garage Fair is an one time event and will be open until May 15th. You can find more information about the event and its theme on The Event & Hunt Forever Planners website.

The final event I’d like to mention is the Buy Now event which launched on to the Marketplace, that’s right not the grid but the marketplace, this month. It’s hosted by Toxxic Rhiannyr who you might know from her store AlterEgo. and it’s a full marketplace hosted event. If you’d like to know more about the event, check out the ‘about’ page on their blog.They even have an event trailer on there, how cool is that?
