The title of the blog, a quote from Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. MND has cropped up in my SL a number of times this year all in very positive ways and I wasn’t always sure that would be the case. It was at a Midsummer Night’s Dream party in 2014 that I met ‘Voldemort’ and while it was a beautiful party and venue it’s a bit of a case of ‘if I knew then what I know now’ I’d have avoided the person, if not the party, completely. That said, I am still using the things I learned about myself after that horrible 12 months and I’m feeling kinda proud of myself at the moment. I’m not just saying to myself that I value myself and appreciate my worth I am living it. I am making sensible, grounded decisions about who I invest my time in based on how they treat me and good God it feels good.
About the Stuff
Midsummer Night’s Dream is the theme for this round of Tres Chic which is open until the 10th July and this is a truly Tres Chic packed post. I’m wearing the Midnight Dress from United Colors from the event which comes in Belleza, Maitreya and Slink sizes. UC always pack their huds with lots of options so there’s a number of different lace options for the trims to give a range of looks from cute to sexy. My tattoo is from Nanika and I’m wearing only the legs which come in black or white with appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega and, of course, regular system tattoo layers. The decor for the post is the Midsummer Night’s Dream set from 22769 – [bauwerk]. I really wish I could have worked Donkey into the scene but you can check him out at the event.
The build for the scene is super exciting. It’s one of the brand new prizes in the relaunched Interview game from MadPea. The game relaunches on the 3rd July with a brand new side quest with 7 new prizes and this gorgeous build is from Spellbound (hands up all those hurraying at new builds from the Spellbound team!).
And there’s still more newness… BackBone have taken a foray into jewelry and it’s an epic debut for The Gacha Guardians which starts tomorrow. I’m wearing the RARE Guardian of Eternity necklace but having gone through the set this morning I’m definitely going to be featuring lots more!
And last, but far from least is new hair from Truth….that’s happened quite a lot this month which is definitely good and not a complaint. Emika is a new release for The Crystal Heart Festival (I like that name being a Crystal myself)
Phew – yeah that was a lot of great stuff but there is so much going on across the grid!!!
