I’m Still Here

爺爺, I’m home. Work was really busy today so I didn’t get to come back home until this late in the evening. I brought you some of your favorite snacks tonight. Picked up some mangosteen at a fruit cart nearby and made you some green tea. No cigarettes this time – I know you love them. 奶奶 mentioned you the other day while we were talking about faith and fate. She misses you – a lot. My dad too, I bet, but he and I don’t really talk much. You know how it is. Sometimes I wonder if you’re really here or not still. 奶奶 says your energy still is, it is what keeps her strong even at her age. It’s been twenty years though……. are you still here?

I’m still here…

Pool Side Fun

Hello my beautiful readers! Its sooo hot in the America right now, that I felt it would be good to do a pool outside post! Having a little BBQ and some good treats that would be refreshing would be nice.  So instead of jumping into my fashion first, I am going to talk about the surrounding items.  At UBER you can pick up the new BBQ from Moss and Mink, while I am using the decor version of this grill, it does have a usable one.  IT COOKS FOOD! Its a fun little grill and took me a moment to really figure it out, only because I don’t read directions at all.  I swear I feel like I know it all … and I do sometimes … yea.  But anyways it cooks such cute little BBQ foods that this was perfect for our pool side.

At the main store of DustBunny you can find the snow cone machine and cute little snow cone sets! I really love the berries that are decorating the cones and the stand.  Its a refreshing cooling ice that will definitely take the heat out of ya and leave a nice cooling sensation.  There are three colors in the package that you can pick for your cone machine, and there are two different fruits for your cones that give that fresh vibe and I really am loving it.  Healthy!  I paired this with a few items I already had from Dustbunny, like the heart table and the unicorn planter Just to add a little decoration around the items.  Very cute.   Another refreshing items are the watermelons and the blackberry drinks.  I always felt like if you were to go swimming you should have fruits and other items that would help hydrate you because the chlorine will suck it out the moisture in your body, so remember if you are out and swimming in the heat to keep hydrated.

Okay so my fashion! So my downfall in life is my LAQ heads, because I am in love with their heads, I buy all of them as they come out, but I always wanted the Nyx head and I never gotten it. Now I have it and I am wearing it.  What I really enjoy about LAQ is that you can mix and match the heads with her skins and know that you are getting a really cute look.  For example I am wearing the Nyx head which is an older Bento head that has been updated and paired it with the new Cherry Skin that has come out and is at Collabor88.  As you can see it matches like they were made for each other.  I am finding that mixing and matching heads and the skins are so much fun and I think you are looking at getting LAQ for your new heads to check out the mix and match!

The last thing I wanna talk about and show off is the Bikini I purchased its by Cynful and its amazing! When I seen it in the picture I didn’t realize that the sequins were all single placed or however it was made.  But its not painted on as a look.  Its upraised which is something I really like about this.  Its actually really realistic and shimmers in the light I really do like it.  I was in love with the blue when I laid my eyes on it.  There are so many colors to choose from and each of them are shiny and beautiful! So pick all the colors in my opinion.

So that is all for noow, check out the details below have fun shopping because yea, its shopping and its fun.  ♥

Meet Cherry

HELLO MY READERS!!! Today I got something fun for you! Collabor88 has opened and there are some very amazing things there ♥ I am sporting the new LAQ head, with GUM attachment.  Lets meet Cherry.  She is a younger looking face, I would say the early 20’s and I adore how she is.  You get a head, a shape, and other accessories that you need to make a complete look.  I am wearing her au natural which is actually really adorable looking.  You have the option to get the gum attachment where you motioncap chew gum and blow bubbles (seen in the clip below).  There is a HUD to get the color of gum choices you might like.  I chose the slightly darker pink color.  Since this is at the event of Collabor88 the head is a discounted price.  The skin is also at the discounted price … and if you need a HUD you can purchase it at the main store.  IF YOU HAVE THE HUD do not purchase another one, as you only need one HUD for all your heads!!

While at the Collabor88 you can get the amazing top set that I found by Tee*fy.  I am in love with the looks of this set.  They are sold separately.  So you have many options to play with in your color choices.  Or you can get the fatpack and mix and match to your hearts content.  Believe me there are many many many choices, it was so hard to pick one that I loved the most.  But I really love the prints versus the solid in the over top and the solids for the under shirt.  Its a bit showy but hey its summer, its hot and we need the clothings that allow us to breathe! I will grabbing for this top when I want to be summery casual on the beach kinda outfits.  I really like this!

Finally head on over to Foxcity and join the group.  There are SO many gifts that you can grab.  Now I am sure you all notice that I blog the Foxcity poses the most.  I purchase them because frankly I really like how easy they are fitting to my body and style.  Its a quick no edit to fit the pose to my body shape.  Which I can appreciate.  I think if you are searching for good poses that are fluid you need to check out Foxcity and test out the Demo’s.  I mixed a pose set I got at Saturday sale and one of her gorgeous group gifts to make up my background.

Welp, that is all I have to report on for now.  Head on over to the mentioned stores and events, see the things you like and make your style.  Have fun with it ♥

Everything is PRETTY in Pink

I have been gone for a little while, and it seems that Caleb’s blogs have been taking over.  But I am finding out things about myself. I need to take a step back and reevaluate what my blogging means to me. Its my creative outlet.  Its a place that I want to post my thoughts and show off the things I personally like in my Second Life world.  Which is what I am going to start doing now.  I love the creators that sponsor me.  They are the ones that helped keep me motivated.  Which makes what I am about to say one of the most hardest things I had ever done.  I sent out notecards to creators, I explained that while I love blogging, I needed to take some time to step back and reevaluate what I wanted from blogging.  Keep in mind I have been blogging for approximately 6 years now straight (not on this blog .. as I now share this with my husband) and I never really took a break for me to clear my head.  With that being said, I realized that my blogging skills have started looking the same.  I was not happy with what I was doing anymore.  It kills me to give up spaces that I have worked so hard to obtain you know.  NOT because the items come to me.  But because they are brands that I love and support.  They are business people and I get this.  Which shocked me when I turned in my cards that I needed to give my space to someone that deserved it right now … I got nothing but love and support! THESE are the people that make me happy and keep me going and motivate me to keep going.  Which meant taking a little time for myself.  Those creators did not give up on me and I will not give up on them.  So while some of them are not my sponsors, I will continue to purchase and blog their items.  By not having as many creators that I have a contract with, I am seeing that I am free to blog other stores in my inventory at a freer liberty.  This is not to say that anyone I was blogging for was a tyrant.  This is not the case.  I will just say I took on more than I can chew for my own good.  I don’t have as much time on my hands anymore.  I have a wonderful hubby and a family that is growing.  I have other things in my life now that make me happy too!  … OK rambling … I am just saying that I found a new look on my blogging life and I want to try something new.  It never hurts to try something different!

New in my world is LAQ, I am in love with her heads.  I wear them all the time as I find they are the best ones for my personal style.  I like the looks, the HUD .. and how easy it is to use.  Recently LAQ went under some construction to their heads and updated ALL of them! This was a big project, but at what cost you are asking?  Well no cost the customers! I say it like this because now you only have to purchase ONE hud … and your head choice.  This HUD works with ALL heads.  This cuts the cost of heads from 5k to a modest 1.5k  per head.  Which is a head lovers dream.  This means I can purchase ALL the heads that are updated and catch up on owning them all for WAY less.  Believe me this is a great deal specially for bloggers like me.  We are looking to save a little money and yet keep our looks different.  Faces are all the rage and I want them all.  Sooo now I can have them all at a great deal.  BY the way I am blogging SANDY the newest face of the LAQ family.  You can find her at UBER this round.  Opened on the 25th of June.  With her is make up, lashes, and other cute things that will complete your look.  I am sporting all the items that are LAQ for this head.  Want to know what they are just look in the itemized list of things below!  Disclaimer .. I did mod the shape to my body style, the face was barely touched.

I have decided that Cae and Just Because will remain showing up in my blogs because … WELP they are some of my favorite designers on the grid.  They have both showed me such love and support through my years of blogging I couldn’t have asked for better creators in my life.  Just Because is currently at UBER with this gorgeous dress.  I just died when I seen the WIP that was placed on the flickrs as a tease for us to look at.  The details are so cute with the tiny flowers and I realized yea … I need this dress in my life.  I recommend the fatpack because you get so many options on how to style this dress and you get the exclusive patterns that are only found in the pack.  I am pairing this with my Cae accessories you can find at FaMESHed which happened to open today! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Flamingos.  So this was something that I personally wanted so bad.  There are earrings too but as you can see my fluffy hair was not about to let me wear that! BUT the necklace is to die for.  Two cute birds encased in a circle.  I needed them in my life.  Next to the necklace was the amazing glasses I am wearing.  I really like how these frames fit.  I also like the freedom of styling them on top of the head too as that is where I tend to hide my glasses the most.  Its a horrid trait as they normally get stuck in my hair, but this is SL and I am not ripping my hairs out here!! Which is fantastic for me ♥

One more UBER thing for me is the hair! O M G the hair.  This fluffy gorgeous hair is all the rage in my books right now.  The curly mess that sits on my head is one of my new favorites, its short and all over the place and I think my favorite of the packs are the Ombres I am adoring the darker roots that flow down to a different color of your choice.  Well the choice of what is on the HUD … but either way is perfect in my opinion.  The whispy strands and the life this hair style brings is so fun and adorable.  I really do enjoy this style of hair.  So make sure you try the demo and try out all the colors each one is unique in its own way and  how they look on the style is fun and playful!

OK … long post over.  If you like these items.  Check them out below, I have all of them listed.  When you head over to the events make sure to look at the other designers too, I do believe there is something for everyone.  And have fun with your looks.  And don’t be scared to try something new ♥

MadPea Summer Hunt 2018 Promo

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN! The MadPea Summer Hunt is always my favorite hunt because I just love everything summer brings: fun in the sun, refreshing swims in the water, popping tropical color all around, and a reason to show more skin 😉 MadPea Summer Hunt has some amazing prizes this time around to hunt for – here is just a taste!

If you aren’t hunting for sea shells, then you are missing out! MadPea’s Summer Hunt runs from June 13th to June 27th, and the hunt is a dynamic experience where all seashell hunters hunt at different sims on a daily basis. Shells are constantly appearing and disappearing, giving hunters plenty of opportunity to rake in those points for prize redemption. Also, there are instant prizes that can be found in oysters, making the hunt a lot more enjoyable with these surprise treats.

To join the hunt, buy the MadPea Summer Hunt HUD for $L100. For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here. I’ll be covering the Summer Hunt a lot more in detail in a later post.

Daydreaming of Mermaids …

HELLOOOOOOOO EVERYONE! I am so excited to show off all my new items.  I called my post Daydreaming of Mermaids, because of this hair! Oh gosh Exile, you bringing it with this one! I put this hair on out of the box and the mint green color INSTANTLY made me want to go this route.  I did not even want to try a different color.  I was blown away with how gorgeous this color looked with the style.  Now you have options like always, the flowers are on/off and you can choose from the HUD which color you want.  There are sooo many possibilities with this hair.  PLUS this hair comes with a style HUD so you can wear the hair with choice of right or left shoulder, or you can choose to wear it over both shoulders.  Personally I like the off one shoulder look.  I find this hair to be an extremely fun and flirty look.  It reminds me of a Mermaid … I just needed to keep this look.

Next I am loving the swimsuits that Just Because is placing out.  The last post I did of her items was a bikini, this one is a full out one piece with the option to wear just the top and pair it with shorts, or if you are like me and have shorts that fit over the bottoms you can do that too! I instantly fell in love with the plain white version of this suit, BUT the moment I seen the polka dots I was in heaven.  You have the options to change the ruffles on the chest area, to either match or you can choose what colors you like.  Getting the fatpack gives you exclusive colors that only the fatpack comes with, so make sure you check out the demo to try out your favorites .. but I am greedy and need them all.

To tie this look together, because of the ocean like theme I seem to be playing with…. I paired this with a nice set of pearls! I mean when I think of oceans I think of the clams and the pearls … what better what for a mermaid to accessorize than with pearls.  I swear I need to find a good tail and dress as a mermaid. .. but for real though this layered necklace is gorgeous .. its by Cae jewelry and again another staple to my fashion.  I really love wearing and showcasing her items. The pearl earrings are absolutely fitting to the look.  There are dangles like I am wearing and another option of studs.  A HUD comes with that will allow you to change aspects of the jewelry with different variations of pearl like colors, even the fancy black pearls.  But I personally love the white ones.

Check out the info below on where you can find the amazing items and make sure you check out the rest of the event venue’s … you never know what you will find ♥

Vintage Reflection …

Reflection, that is what I am feeling at the moment.  I took a little vacation a week back and I keep thinking about all the fun I had while on it.  Special moments and other things that I wont speak of here.  But I feel like when I seen this pose and the way I envisioned it while setting up it was like I was reflecting on things and how life is going.  Now I don’t want to drop all the deep stuff on you, but its just the mood setting for my picture.

So some disclaimers here, even though they are obvious, I am pointing them out … this photo is edited … I am using vintage filters to get the look, and I did draw hair – not the best hair – but hair none the less.

So speaking of Vintage… I have new Cae items from the Vintage Fair. The Ring on my finger and the glasses on my face.  These classic pieces are staples in time.  This might reflect on how old I am but I really enjoy the classic older looks from the past.  I think this look fits my style, its casual and yet semi fancy, but still its not overly done.  I really like having a unique look and this is what Cae items do.  Her items range from the high end fancy, to the casual I wanna just wear something and go look.  So for me this is what makes her a winner in my book.

I have also stopped by Collabor88 and picked up the new Zenith outfit.  This is a one piece outfit, depending on what top you purchase that is the color you get, but in the pack is the choice to change the shorts and the buttons on the shorts.  There are 4 normal blue jean colors, ranging from lights to semi dark.  Which I don’t mind as they are the ones that appeal to me most.  I really like the baggy sweater look that is slightly off-shoulder.  It gives that “I am comfortable” look! Which is definitely complimenting with the glasses and ring.

My hair is by Limerence.  If you would like to see the original you can test out the demo in the store.  I am really interested in learning how to draw hair, this by no means is perfect like some of the others I have seen out there, but in order to learn I have to give it a-go.  I think it came out … decent?  yea lets go with that haha.  You will not see this in all my blogs, just when I am feeling overly creative and Caleb leaves on his own vacation and I am left to my own world where I have to release all those creative juices haha.  Either way this is the result.

If you would like any of these items, there are the connections below.  Check them out, look around the events, you never know what you will find ♥
