Yo yo! T’is Thursday day and I’m telling you this because I have to keep telling myself. My week is all to cock and I’m convinced it’s only Wednesday. Now here is the news…
A heatwave is forecast in the UK for the next few weeks. By Saturday they say it will be 27 and by the following Tuesday at least 32. They are saying that from Tuesday it will remain at 32-35 for a fortnight.
This is very bad news for RL me. Firstly, I hate doing housework when it’s very hot and so my lovely clean and tidy house might backslide – boo. Secondly, and probably more importantly, I have a lot of long hair which goes absolutely bonkers in hot weather – it goes huge and kinky and unless I want to spend the rest of the month looking like Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter, I’m going to have to put it up in a bun every day.
Thirdly and Fourthly, I hate too much hot weather and I can’t be outside for more than 5 minutes without burning my frankly ridiculous excuse for skin.
I’m sure you are all delighted if you are in the UK. I understand – other people like it and so usually I refrain from moaning about it (that’s a lie, I moan a LOT about it, but I want to sound really reasonable).
I’m thinking I might invest in a huge paddling pool with a sun brolly over it and simply become a mermaid for the entirety. If you join me, please bring iced drinks 🙂

I do have to declare a partiality – I’m friends with the guy who owns !Aphorism!, but to be fair, I’m friends with many of the designers featured on my blog and they know that while being fair, I’m also honest about the items I receive to show you guys.
So, you cannot imagine the joy with which I donned this innocent (ish) looking bikini – Del Sol. I swear by all the gods of mesh bodies, it’s one of the best fitting items I’ve ever had on and probably the best bikini bar none. There is no unsightly gape (you know the one, ladies) and yet there is no cutting and showing through either. It’s lush. He did it all himself too, I couldn’t be more pleased for him. It’s on sale right now at C88 and for one bikini it’s a mere 88l$ but I recommend a pack of 5 for 288l$.
The Thrift Shop is also open right now and for August in its entirety. There you can find bargains – creators are offering money off their releases just to make you happy! There’s a very wide variety of types of item, I’m showing you Image Essentials Pose set with sunglasses (which, honestly, were a bit fiddly to fit and were not size modifiable, but the poses were awesome so you could always use your own sunglasses) and the PMS Feline Tattoo which is an Omega applier for the mesh bodies.
RunAway are doing really lovely work with these plaited ‘do’s and I’m wishing they could come over and secure my hair in such an attractive way in RL. As usual, the textures and colours are lovely and I recommend a visit to TLC to pop on a demo.
Here’s a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot, click to see me huge.
And finally, my jigging for the rigging video – will Aphorism’s super Del Sol bikini let me down at the last hurdle? Let’s find out!
