Enchanted Halloween Treats

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you all had a great time dressing up, trick or treating, partying, or just plain ol’ relaxing! Today, we took our lil’ girl, Nessy, trick or treating at two neighborhoods – Havenhollow and Orchard Heights. At Havenhollow, the neighborhood was quiet yet eclectic, each house a fun surprise to trick or treat at. There was even a haunted area to explore that was vast and wide! At Orchard Heights, there were houses after houses, sim after sim of residents giving out cool treats.

Afterwards, we came home and surprised Nessy with some delicious enchanted Halloween sweet treats! Chocolate Oreo cake! Candy corn cupcakes! Pumpkin cream puffs! Livvy may have taste tested all of these before Nessy did, but I don’t think Nessy knows! I think she was just so overwhelmed at how delicious everything looked as I filled the table practically to the brim.

Earlier, I picked up this amazing group gift from DISORDERLY that was filled with awesome Halloween/Fall sweets. Let me tell you, this freebie is amazing! When I saw the announcement about the set, I was already prepared to shell out at least L$300 for it. But because this gift was free (since the group is free), I wanted to support the creator and show appreciation by buying a few of her items. To complement the set of Halloween Treats, I went to N21 and played the Fancy Halloween gacha there a few times. I set out the ones that matched the decor best and tucked away the others for now.

I am so in awe and appreciation of this group gift (Nessy definitely was!) that I had to share it with you guys. Definitely show Rogue Falconer (the creator of DISORDERLY.) some love and appreciation for her kindness and hard work!

Happy Halloween 2017 | Mine & Yours

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!

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 ♥

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.

Lazy Summer Fun Day…

Hiiii everyone! Who is holding on to the ending of the summer days? I know over here in the US, we are clinging to our finals month or so of our summer before it goes to that amazing Autumn time where sweaters come out.  Then again I guess if you are in the south or the West Coast (*eyes Caleb*) you could be in the summer all year long where its always warm and you can go to the beach forever.  I swear … ugh.

Anyhoo, we went shopping at a few events this month, and for the furniture aspect of things, we found this so cute adorable pool by Circa! Not only that with this area of stuff in her booth we managed to get our hands on the star fishes that I stuck on the side of the inflatable.  What really is cool, is yes while I have them there, it is however made for the beach floor, so I will be littering them all over our island soon enough.  The pool also has 18 poses in it for your fun time splashing around, now this item is made for the family setting, so no adulting in this one unless you use your imagination (seriously who did the Sponge-bob hand wave for that?) I also snagged up some floaties that go with this pool from Circa too!  But there is a bonus!!! So if you manage to get your hands on the fat-pack set you get the bonus palm trees which are pictured too.   So make sure you check that out, and I am almost positive that when the events are over you can find them in her main store location 😉

Next we went to the Comopolitan and omgosh, I found this really cute table of the goodies by Focus Poses, now this however is more for decoration because there are no poses in this set.  Which is really fine for me, specially when you are looking to for that quick snack table to place out.  This was exactly what was needed.  Now just a warning, there are adulting beverages on here so if you have the kids over … make sure you tell them to not grab the beers 💙

So check out the events and these amazing designers while there check out the other booths too, you never know what you will find 🐻

DaD – Tuscany Loft – Blog

Hii everyone! So I wanted to show you a cute skybox that I came across.  DaD Designs updated one of their skyboxes and I am really liking it.  Its 40 prims total.  And for a blogger this is great for many reasons.  It has many different areas as you will see in the pictures below.  So it gives many options to set up scenes.   But for the normal person that doesn’t blog this is a great low prim home in the sky where you will have no lag.  There are tons of room.  This is a BIG loft like box.  With open and bright (despite my windlight) space.  I think many people would find tons of use for this box.  The outside is textured too so that you are not looking at a big black box in the sky, so if you are taking pictures from the outside in from a window view (I have an example below) you will have texture to make it look realistic.

Head over to the main store of DaD Design, and check this skyhome out.  As well as some of her other boxes.  I have many of them and use quiet a few for my blogging scenes and needs.  While you are here make sure you check out her land homes too.  So if you don’t feel like living in the sky, and want an actual home on the ground level you will find many here too!
