Not For Sale…

The first picture is the Caleb’s version of our Moving House!!

Moving has never been a fun task, not for anyone really.  But when you do move you have this exciting rush of emotion of what your new life will be like.  Some people including myself sit and think of what they can do with a simple piece of land.  While my hubbyface is a procrastinator (really just busy).  I sit and day dream of what our new home will finally look like in the end. Here is our story …

It started with a note-card…

I arrive home to my Caleb reading a note that we will have to move our home, that he has had for years. The owners decided they wanted to do something else with this land, despite him having his life there.  While I do not agree with how it went down, that is perfectly fine, because we have our dream spot.  Even better at a cheaper rate.  Did you know that homesteads and sims aren’t a bad price at all?

I found this to be an opportunity, because we are getting to start over in a new home with a new life that we have started.  Its a fresh start from an old life that no longer existed and we had wide waters for us to play with and do as we would dream up.  We packed up our belongings and dragged our butts to the new land that has so much potential in our eyes.  The skies the limits when you are doing things like this.  We even managed to find a cute house for sale…. so we snatched that right up. Cute houses around here are so hard to find, I swear. BUT we had enough rooms to house the little munchkins that came along for the ride.

At this point we are setting down roots.  This will be home for us.  You may have noticed from my picture and Caleb’s we have a little dictator.  My Little Nessy (Ok Caleb’s too) decided that she was gonna call the shots. I mean really she learned from the best on how to do that, so I see a very bright future ahead for her.  If you really look at the picture, you will see who is doing most of the work here *points to self* I mean did you see the boxes I was trying lug up the steps.  That is not an easy task.  Caleb took all the light boxes, I swear he did, and you know who will have to do the unpacking too right?  Because, well, I am picky and I don’t want him messing it all up.   *Caleb’s in the background here*  Really don’t pay attention to him, because we all know that the girl is the super picky one when it comes to decorating.  Now I am not saying a man cannot do that … so don’t think I am trying to insert that a man can’t be pretty or whatever … but in my relationship this is how it is.  Just saying.

ANYWAY!

We then had a table set up for a moving in party, which was just Caleb, Nessy, and myself.  I mean what did you expect us to eat, we were just moving in! We had no food yet … actually we still have no food yet … but like we had cake … we all have cake! And Caleb’s favorite Pineapple Juice … well actually he likes pineapple things, I am not sure if that is really his favorite … but we will just go with it.  There was streamers and a couple of presents and Balloons … I mean the presents were items that we packed up in a box and wrapped for the fun of it … but shhh no one reallllly has to know that! I mean that is really about it though.  It was a fun and eventful day and I got to spend it with the two people I love the most.  And that is all I need.  That is our story for now.  As the home progresses, I might do a few of the rooms and see what else I can show you!

It’s all Rainbows and Butterflies

Hiii everyone! I am so really excited for the Arcade to come up in a few days! I am sporting a sneak peek for Apple May Designs.  This is something I haven’t seen her come out with in a while now… which is a costume! I love this so much because its a Butterfly.  And yes, its a gacha so you have the opportunity to mix and match some colors here, in my sample pack I received the pink set and the black set.  I mixed and matched to see what I could create and I loooove it.  Now there are some really neat things with this product.  Each of the butterflies on my body has a HUD that will allow you to choose a variety of colors for the Butterflies, so you have … the ones on my skirt, Strings on my corset, the butterflies on my heels, the ones on the wings, but on the wings you have the ribbon, the flowers and the butterflies, and the wings change colors too! So you have so many choices to make.  I was having fun testing out all the goodness that you can create with just a few HUDs and different colors.  I think this will be a great seller at the Arcade!! ♥

I went to UBER and guess what I got things! I mean I guess that is obvious if I went there and put it in my blog.  But I GOT THE HAIR! As if I need more hair, but pfft its TRUTH hair and the new RAINBOW packs in his hairs are amazing!! Which reminds me if you have past new releases of the hairs – the fat packs – go and get a redeliver they are free in the update.  If you bought the single packs, well you will have to purchase the rainbow packs …  But this beauty is at the UBER event and it has soooo many styles and the new style HUD to allow you to make different looks.  I cannot get enough of that.  While you are at UBER check out IZZIE’S booth because she has out new SHADOWS for the eyes, that are both Lelutka and Catwa ready, and the glitters are just perfect.  I cannot even right now with how many different colors are in the set.  I want to wear them all the time all day long, even if they are aimed to the night time looks.  I DON’T CARE … I will ROCK this look all day long! Love it! ♥

It is time again for Kinky to come around and I got the perfect little gift! This choker is adorable.  I love the key hanging from the ribbon that caresses the throat.  You can use it as a collar with the scripts in it … or you can just use it as an accessory … I’m not telling our little secret … is it for the kinks … or no?  I guess you will have to just wonder … I will say I am normally not a golden child but I am living for gold tone in this piece.  I really am digging this look.  Its going to be a favorite in my collection of chokers .. or collars.

Like always, I want you all to have fun, go shopping.  Look around and see if you find any little treasures that will make you happy.  I know that I enjoy the events, and finding that something special to have.

Baywatch’s Turtlewatch

Once those famous drum beats and keyboard melody start for the Baywatch’s theme song I’m Always Here, you know exactly what show is starting on the TV. And just as iconic as the theme song is for Baywatch is also those slow-mo run scenes with the hunky studs and beautiful bombshell lifeguards. So Ella and I decided to make our own slow-motion Baywatch run scene on the beach, starring a group of incredibly sexy HEXtraordinary turtles. We were running so slow that the group of sea turtles nearly passed us by!

Today was a great day for a nice slow-mo run though. At first, Ella’s hair was blowing all sorts of crazy since the morning breeze was blowing faster than our slow-mo running pace. We finally got good stride and were able to get a decent shot together. Can you believe this is our first picture together ever?! I’ve known this Australian menace for years (we shared the same SL family back in the day) and we finally grabbed a photo together. Now she can send me all the Tim Tams and that awesome fluffy creamy pastry pie that she showed me, but I forgot what it is called and I learned the hard way to never google “Australian cream pie”.

P.S. The fluffy creamy pastry pie is actually called Pavlova.

P.S.S. How can you not have that Baywatch theme song stuck in your head now?!

She is Always RIGHT …

Hi everyone!

So the one thing that me and Caleb are always talking about is the fact that I am always right! He wont agree, but as you will clearly see in the in the picture, he is Mr. Right, and I am Mrs. Always Right.  It’s plain as day right there on the sign on the wall.  I know he is going to argue me on this but that is alright.  Honestly, we have a really good relationship where we both tend to be right, though he does tell me I am right more often … but shh I didn’t tell you all that.

You are probably wondering where all this stuff came from right?  Welp its from Sway’s.  Now as long as I can remember Sway Dench has been around making cute creations of the Adult and PG kind.  I think my inventory is covered in all her items and honestly, I really like them.  They are simple and yet so well made.  I find that her stuff is great for the fam life.  And with two little girls running around you need to have that PG fun.  Plus what I love about these particular items I have set up is they are all from different sets, and the coloration of them all match! So you can take items from her sets and mix and match them.

So to be perfectly honest, I am not sure what events these might have come from as I dug in into my inventory to make the look.  I felt like doing something a little different today than my normal clothing post.  I haven’t really blogged Sway’s in a while, so this is a dedication to her and the great items she makes.  BUT the good thing is…all these items can be found at her main store.  BUT BUT BUT even better than that .. WHILE you are at the main store you can shop for all the other great things she sells. Soo make sure that you check it out ♥

5:04PM, Melrose Avenue

L.A. is where everything is at. Everything you can imagine. Los Angeles is home to rich, glamorous Hollywood stars and families barely getting by in concentrated poverty neighborhoods. Cornerstore mom and pop venues to Michelin star restaurants. Food from every culture. Music around the world. Art everywhere.

At any time, any place, many hearts who claim the diverse city of Los Angeles as home have such deep stories.

At 5:04PM, a mother of five is getting off her first job to pick up her kids from after school daycare before rushing off to her second job. A Hollywood-bound barista is sneaking in to work after leaving mid-shift for an audition. A boy is at marching band practice, pushing through endurance training to be the best in his drumline. A girl is getting dressed in her sexiest outfit before heading off to meet her friends at the club.

Me? At 5:04PM, I’m heading to Alfred’s coffee place on Melrose Avenue for a treat – a delicious macchiato in a chocolate cone – while I find some time to write this SL entry. Walking there, I’m surrounded in rich culture and art, blessed to be around such creativity and talent. The walls are covered in color and the streets are filled with people from every corner of the world. Welcome to L.A. – the city of dreams. What’s your story?

Take me with …

Pack me up and take me with ….

Honestly, there are so many EVENTS happening that I cannot keep them all straight, let alone what I have blogged in this post.  Its crazy how big these events are getting.  Though I have to admit, I am still finding most of them fun.  I think though at some point – I have become a bit bias.  There are events that are now my favorites and the ones I always look forward to.  But, then I have someone like Caleb who brings me to all the new ones and now my list has grown.  For items I might not mention in a personal way you can find them all listed below!

I am excited about one thing! I finally found a skin that I am in love with.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a million different looks with different heads, but I have to tell you all I have grown custom to my LeLutka head – the Simone, despite the new ones that have just come out, I cannot bare to part with this particular one.  But I always seem to find a skin that satisfies my need for a moment and then I feel like I need to make that change.  So I will totally admit, I forgot that DeeTaleZ sells skins, I don’t know why, but I swear its like I go there for the clothes.  So when I seen that a skin came out for the LeLutka head, I was sold on it.  I had to go and demo out the skin.  Now let me tell you, I placed this skin on and I was instantly realizing I think I have found my look of looks for a while.   But I do want to divulge in a little secret I did find.  On the table next to the skins, she has a sweet little gift out with premade shapes for the Lelutka head and trust me when I say they are pretty.  If I was a new person to the head world and didnt have a shape for my face, or really wanted a new starter face – I would consider this the BEST route to go.  These are not just some thrown together look.  They are really amazing looking thought out shapes, that fit MOST of the heads.  I did try them on the demo heads and found they looked good.  Just I am to attached to my look.

I think because most of my other items are more for the events.  I will just leave my post here.  All the informations is down below and I hope you all find what you are looking for at these events because they are fun to look at.  Where else can you go and get a VARIETY of designers in one area and find new stores.  This is a good way to get a sampling of all the things good in SL.  So have fun check them out … and I will catch you all later ♥ ♥

Look Me In The Eyes ..

 

Well Hello My Pretty People, This has been a crazy week because we launched the new blog, which if you are reading this you know all about it.  Caleb has been on vacation and I been lazy as hell.  I think I been living in this outfit for a week now, since the day he left.  So I am going to do a blog on it.  There are so many events opened, that have been opened for a little bit now.  I really have an addiction to shopping, I think I need some therapy and all.  Its amazing my Credit Card still works…. but its sooo worth it to me.

So this jacket, is amazing, its by Vale Koer and honestly, I was shocked by it! I say this because I know them for shoes.  Amazing Shoes.  But when I seen this jacket and tried it on I knew that I had to have it.  Now this purchase you can get in single colors or the fatpack.  If you get the fatpack, you get ALL the colors.  If you get singles, there are only a few options.  The price for the fatpack is a deal, so make sure you snag that up.  You can find it at the Collabor88 Event.  Which has been opened for a week now, which means you should be able to get in.  On that this is the birthday month so you get all the goodies and then some from extra guests!! Also while you are there, make sure you grab the hair I am wearing by Exile.  I am in love with this long locked look.  There are so many color options and I am falling for the mixed blond and brown color.  It fits amazing to my head and I have to admit, I have an addiction to his hairs … but shhh don’t tell ♥

Have you been to UBER yet? If you do go, you will find these amazing bell bottom pants.  Caleb doesn’t like bell bottoms, but he made an exception for these I think it has to do with the booty of these pants, cause its like damn.  I know I been talking about my booty alot! Shhh don’t judge me.  The booty is good and deserves to be talked about.  Besides you know it will look good in these jeans so I might as well let you know that so you buy the pants.  There are SO many colors to pick from.  I actually really loved these darker color ones, which is a bit of out of my normal, I usually love the lighter colors and here I go with darks to confuse everyone.  Sometimes you gotta step out of your norm to really test out the new things!

Next I wanna talk about this choker/collar around my neck! This is a creation by Cae, yes, I talk about Cae a lot because frankly I love her stuff.  I mean why wouldn’t you.  But anyhoo she has this collar at ROMP.  What I love is that you can wear this as normal or you can wear the RLV one so you can let your significant other play with you.  I find both to be really handy.  Do you know what I love about the RLV aspect.  I get lazy.  Yap, I get lazy.  Caleb can drag me around TP me to places and not leave me behind all AFK and stuff.  So for me that is the best part of the collar.  Though I think he secretly feels like he has some power over me haha.  Again that is a SHHH thing, don’t be telling people.

So that is all the goodness from events that are happening around the grid.  SO I want you to go shopping, have fun, buy all the things and show it off.  But please come back and visit us again soon, cause we will have more goodness coming your way!! ♥

He Belongs to Me ..

It is not everyday when I can assert as to what is mine.  We started off two years ago, and while we were apart, deep down I knew he was mine.  Then one day, out of no where, he came back.  A simple Hello was all it took.  All the rushing feelings come back and I had to pin him down.  There is always a part of me that will always always be his.  Nothing will change that.  ♥  So while pinning him down I had to look good doing it.  What better way to look good then to cover my legs in the new release by Just Because. I really love the looks of these because frankly they shine and the black with particular wind-lights show that off so well.  None of the shine on the pants are accentuated at all, they are the natural looking highlights from the materials look I was able to pick up.  Now you might be asking yourself where can you pick up some amazing leggings like this?! Welp let me tell you, these lovelies are from Collabor88 which has just opened.  So be prepared to fight the lag to get in!

I have added with this outfit my shirt from Addams! Now if you have been part of their birthday bash, you could have collected all the coupons that will give you random amounts of money off your purchases.  Just wear the coupon, pay the price, click the coupon and get your refund back! Its that simple.  While the chance to get the coupon are over you can still use them until the 30th.  So make sure you buy up all the clothing’s now.  Including the top I am wearing, I love how it falls to right before the bottom of the breasts, and yet is long sleeved.  The details on the shirt are amazing, as you can see the wrinkles of how the shirt fits against the body.  Make sure you head over to the main store and get yours today.  So many colors to have, and if you buy the fat pack you get a HUD that allows you to change all the colors and get so many different choices.

As for the boy-toy under my Reign heels … well you can’t have him.  But you can pick up the shoes at the main store.  They are a gorgeous pair, that too come with a HUD that allows you to pick the color of your choice.  I adore the strap around the heel of the shoe.

So go out shopping have some fun, and if you get into Collabor88 please be courteous to those around you and remove your hud’s to lower the lag.  That is the best way to shop, and a little tip if you are using firestorm, you can now hide all those that aren’t on your friends list for easier shopping!

Booty Booty Booty

Hello my pretty people, I am back! I even brought the boyfriend with me too.  So we did a little fun photo shoot with the new Apple May outfit.  This lovely jeans and top set is perfect in so many ways.  For them girls that have smaller booties that wanna have a pop once in a while, whelp you can totally have that in these.  As you can see King Caleb here, had no issue with the size of the booty on these pants.  I will say that size does change with your slider so if you have a small booty you will have a smaller size.  I have what I believe is a medium butt soooo… my booty was a bit bigger ♥

With these pants there is a lace halter top that is tied in the back its cute.  The front of the pants has lace on them! These are extremely detailed and look so good.  The pants are made in the skinny jean version so tight around the legs.  I love how you can wear these with heels.   So you might be asking how did the butt grabbing commence, well, in typical male fashion – girl walks by – man see’s the butt – man can’t help himself and BAM out comes the camera and the picture taking happens and you know he had to have it.  KIDDING – I know all men aren’t like that.  But we figured it was the perfect opportunity to be a little more immature in our lives.  As if we don’t do that enough.  Besides, look at his classic face.  Like Hey girl HEEEEEY.  hahahaha  — I will update where this outfit can be found as soon as that information is released ♥

Tropical Afternoon Treats

Some of my favorite everyday fruits are peaches and strawberries, but in this summer heat, I treated myself to some more tropical fruits to cool off under the shade of trees by the stream – some juicy watermelon, succulent pineapple, and heavenly sweet mangosteen. With mangosteen, mainly native to Southeast Asian, is a bit more rare to find. Luckily I do not have to travel far as Vivian Omizu, creator of Pillows, brought a great collection of mouth-watering fruits, including a basket of mangosteen, into SL for us.

This batch of sweet and tangy mangosteen brings me back to childhood. Growing up in an Asian household, eating fruit was mainly a family event/dessert. Mangos, lychee, longyan were common to snack on, but mangosteen was not common at all for my family. But when we were able to find some ripe assortments from a local vendor, we were in heaven. As simple as something like eating fruit together as a family, though it might seem so uneventful, these times were happy times. Sweetness to satiate the sweet tooth in me, surrounded by the love of family, taking the time to relax and enjoy the intriguing way food is integrated in our culture.

These were happy moments, and now, I reflect upon this as I munch on my mangosteen in serene solitude with the sound of the ocean waves splashing upon the shore nearby, and soothed by the gentle lullaby of the running stream near my cabin on the island. Funny how something as simple as eating some fruit can bring back such potent memories of love and belonging.
