A Stockman’s Outback

This international love edition of Erotic Life magazine features a handful of sexies all around the world. I had the honor of representing the amazing country (and continent) – Australia. When I think of Australia, I think of the breath-taking and stunning Outback (and the gorgeous Great Barrier Reef, but that is another story!). Vast, remote land that stretches as far as the eye can see, the Outback is one of the largest natural areas on Earth. Full of wildlife and rich in many different ecosystems, Australia’s Outback is the prime setting for the photo that represents Australia.

To pay further homage to the culture of Australia, I’ve taken on the role as a stockman. Stockmen tend to the livestock at stations, usually sheep or cattle. Traditionally riding horse and using a stockwhip for stock work, stockmen usually wear a felt Akubra hat and adorn a plaited kangaroo skin belt that holds the stockman’s pocket knife. I, however, opted for a bowie knife in the naked version that can be seen in Erotic Life’s magazine here. I mean, have you seen that thing? As Crocodile Dundee says, “Now, -that’s- a knife!”

I’d Pause My Game For You

I’ve been slowly working on my man cave (keyword: slowly) which is pretty much half a gaming/entertainment room and half a sectioned off red room. Despite my man cave being catered to just me, I still like having Livvy there with me. I have a gaming chair for her and a gaming chair for me, though now that I think about it, she really doesn’t need her own dedicated chair because I just have her sit in my lap anyway. She knows that if I am in the middle of a gaming session, she could plop her sexy self into my lap and my full attention would be on her right away.

I'd Pause My Game For You | Mine & Yours

Stockholm&Lima made this nice Subtlety pillow that has found its way permanently in my game room. That is the cushion pillowy seat that I am sitting on with my beautiful love. The pillow serves as a sleek cushion with 12 outstanding singles and 9 bento couples animations:

12 Solo (non bento) animations male/female mixed
4 m/f bento cuddles *exclusive*
5 m/f bento adult animations (in the adult version only) *exclusive*

Ladies and gentlemen, let me take a moment and highlight Stockholm&Lima for a sec. I’ve been a longtime fan of Surrealia Anatine’s work for ages, dating back to when she owned ANA_mations. Talk about blast from the past, right? In fact my earliest items from her dates all the way back to 2010. You might be saying.. Damn, Caleb. Obsessed much? Well tell you what – Surrealia’s animations are worth being obsessed about because I know she makes quite a few of them on her own.

Her animations feel so natural and fluid, and are so well made. She is one of the very few creators I know who make their own quality animations to put in their products. Now, she has created her own bento animations! Though the pillow only has a few bento cuddles and bento adult animations, these are so well made and natural-looking. The face, the eyes, the hands, the fingers, and the body all move in a single animation – AMA_zing! (see what I did there? …. do you see it? lol I make myself laugh sometimes)

Anyway, check out a corner of my man cave gaming room with the Subtlety pillow actually nestled in my bigger gaming chair below.

Oh! I’m going to mention it in the credits, but I also wanted to actually note it here too, you’ll see Ariskea’s [Press Start] Vintage Girl Game[DVA] in the background and you’ll probably notice that your version is not the same. That is because I modded mine. I flipped the outer texture to showcase Ariskea’s original art for the arcade machine of D.Va. I also added my own title texture for the game since it didn’t have one and the rest of my arcade machines had a name to them. So I made up my own, playing off D.Va’s name with a taunt she would use in the actual Overwatch game. I also used the coin slots from Stockholm&Lima: Arcade Machine’s to the Ariskea one just for that retro pay to play style that I am used to.

She said “Yes!”

Originally written by Caleb… but commandeered by Livvy (green text)

As soon as 2018 came, I asked Livvy to marry me (finally). Being the clever boyfriend that I am, I made her think we’d be spending our New Year’s together very casually (but also cozily in each other’s arms), just enjoying each other’s company as the clock strikes 12. Being that we were online most of New Year’s Eve together, I literally had to set up my proposal scene right in front of her. Thank goodness for AFK time!  (Livvy here: Yes finally … I have been waiting for this slow day to finally come to a head and happen.  But only because I love him so much, and I feel like queen of the world when he is with me.  Mind you this is our 2nd time dating.  Time was not a good factor on our side and we have grown and learned so much to finally come back to this day and be so incredibly happy!) 

My plan was to have our own fireworks display on our land, which is something we normally do anyway like on the 4th of July. So, again, totally inconspicuous. But what she did not know was, I planned to have my proposal show up written like fireworks in the middle of the lit sky when I was setting off in world fireworks.  (Ohh this is story to be told!)

Throughout the day, I distracted her with shopping adventures and a total season of Stranger Things. I had never seen Stranger Things on Netflix yet and after the first few episodes, I loved it. So we binge watched the entire season that night lol, which worked great with my planned proposal because Livvy would not think anything of it. We were comfy in our sweats, cuddling in front of our camp fire, Netflixing and actually ‘chilling’ like normal people.  (Mind you his Christmas present to me was the gorgeous dress I am wearing below, and it threw me off that I was not to wear this for my Happy New Year fireworks! This made me very curious as to what was going to happen.  And watching all 8 episodes of Stranger Things was so totally romantical, because its our thing to watch shows together.  The fact he was so into this one just made me smile the whole time ♥)

When midnight came, I exclaimed, “HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY!” And she did the same as I proceeded to set off all the fireworks I had set up earlier. These were a mix between my MadPea Fireworks I had from 2016 as well as my {damani} – Fireworks deLuxe from back in 2014 lol. While we were smiling and celebrating our first New Year together, I turned off the transparency of my written proposal in the sky to let it finally be shown. The proposal said, “Will You Marry Me, Livvy?” in all cool sparklers effect to sort of blend in a bit with the fireworks.  (What he is leaving out here is that I didn’t actually seeee the message at first.  It was a blur in the sky, and I thought I broke my av for a moment so I zoomed in, thinking that I could totally fix it .. but that didn’t happen so I zoomed way out and it came clear what the message was and it confused me a bit because I was so not expecting this.  I hit the escape key and back to my av my camera flew and there was Caleb on one knee!!!!)

Will You Marry Me, Livvy | Mine & Yours

We have been on voice this entire time and when I heard her give notice to the image that was coming in for her, I got down on one knee, waiting for her to finally realize what was happening. I was proposing to her and I started saying the following to her on voice:

Livvy Fhang, I met you in 2014. Started dating you in 2015. We went our separate ways but found each other again in 2017. While together, you have made me an incredibly happy man with you back in my life. Ever since the day our paths crossed again, I’ve been smiling ever since… and incredibly in love with you. 2018 is here and I want us to start our new chapter together. I’ve been waiting for this day – this very day… the first day of the year, as I want to start the new year with you as mine in every way. Livvy… will you do me the honor of letting me be your husband? Will you marry me?

(He totally made a typo in that proposal … but I am not going to share it because it should be perfect the way he wanted … even if he wasn’t nervous, I still say he was, that voice that he loves to think was sooo confident I could hear the slight shake, but shhh, he was all man when asking me everything)

While I was telling her how much she has meant to me and how happy she has made me, I could hear the happiness in her silence as she listened. Yes, her silence has a voice – just like how you can hear someone smile… or choke back feelings of elation… or even tears of happiness. I was beaming the entire time and then as I finished my words, a resounding, “YES!” from her lips. My goodness how happy it made me to hear her say that… and how happy it made me to hear her happiness as well.  (I mean I waited a really long time to get this question from him.  Then again he is so slow with things, always wanting them perfect.  Though we were a bit backwards in how we did this.  Most of our plans were already planned minus the asking part.  Which most couples dont do until asked?  But we arent your average couple, we are us and we know how we tend to work, it was a matter of time before it happened anyways.  And he did it in the most perfect way.  I am just impatient and always will be. How he deals with me and still put a ring on it … amazes me! 

I love this woman so damn much (I love you too, baby). I can’t wait for so much many more moments and memories to share and create together. Happy New Year, indeed! We’re engaged! (And I am not letting go for one moment, you are stuck with me!)

Merry Christmas From Us!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

A really quick post for you all this beautiful morning. Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday so far, and plenty more celebration ahead! Wanted to share this amazing MadPea Christmas Hunt prize that would be perfect if you have little ones to celebrate Christmas with. Our daughter ran down Christmas morning from her room, jumped on our bed to wake us up and made a mad dash to the Christmas tree to find this amazing and official certificate from Santa Claus. The look on her face was priceless, and she was beaming from ear to ear. We loved it so much that we had to take a family picture to celebrate what an amazing child Nessy has been the whole year!

Tip: Scaling down through stretching will not work if you want the certificate to go smaller (I think it is the name plate that has been sized down to the minimum SL dimension already on one of its sides so you cannot go beyond that when linked together with something else. Instead, use a resizer script that ignores minimum dimension restraint that will conveniently help you resize the item as a whole.)

Also wanted to share a little memory a week before Christmas when we visited Santa on our land. He set up a little cottage area for him to stay at when Nessy went to visit him. She had received his letter, as Santa wanted to check up on Nessy before Christmas just to make sure she was still on track for staying on the Nice List. Merry Christmas, everyone! Stay warm and enjoy the company of loved ones around you this beautiful holiday season <3 From us to you, Merry Christmas.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didn’t see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked
Up in my bedroom fast asleep.
Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

Caleb and I wish you all a very Happy Holiday, no matter how you celebrate it please be safe and have fun!

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 FROM NESSY, LIVVY, AND ME! Can you guess what we dressed up as? 🙂

Happy Halloween 2017 | Mine & Yours

All poses made by me 🙂

Let’s Take a Little Break …

Today is a fun post. I have decided to dive into my inventory and find things I never used.  While I do have some new things on.  The decorations are things that I had hidden in my inventory and little gems I never opened! Are you one of those people that buy things and realize that later down the road you never used it?! I swear MOST of my inventory is just that.  I have so many items that I am just like what … are you …??? So lets start shall we?

I have items out from an Arcade, not sure what Arcade, but its from Dust Bunny, and I know that she keeps her Gacha items out, so if you want these items there are two ways to do it.  You can go online to the marketplace and look for the said items, or you can head over to the Dust Bunny store and play the machine.  Either way these items are perfect for the early fall decor, they even make for good spring, but to me I felt the sweet vibes for the Autumn.  Also out with these pretty items is the NOMAD bench that I picked up from Fifty Linden Friday yesterday, it has several single poses and some very cute couples poses.  But Caleb is out helping fam at this moment so I am flying solo.  Its completely cute and I love the stone and leaves on it.  A perfect look for the fall.

Now onto things I am wearing, I have some new items mixed in with my older items.  On a little shopping trip I managed to find this cute sweater, recently I been into the pastel colors.  Pinks in the fall are great, specially with the mix of colors in the trees.  That and it matched the scenery that was coming together.  I have paired these with my favorite of Addam’s jeans.  These are perfect if you wanted to wear them with short over the jean boots (like the ones I am sporting from Reign).  Now if you head over to N21 you can find this absolutely gorgeous hair.  The side braid and loose tendrils of hair that hang down are absolutely divine in this look.  I am adoring the slightly messy look and how it just pulls my completed look all together.

Now, go shopping, have fun! ♥

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.
