Conversations with myself ..

I was suppose to be meeting Caleb at our new meeting spot.  I say new because we had our land gorgeously landscaped by his daughter.  I am going to place her website here.  Now we have this pretty land that I can lay my items down on and make into a real home. And that is all I ever wanted.  To provide a home that we can build together for our children.  I asked him to meet me at the dock.  I opened up my DecoCrate and I got so many gorgeous items.  And I set some of them up on our dock. Brunch on Paris inspired furniture is one of the prettiest scenes I could imagine.  Caleb was late!

I am sure Caleb has a good reason as to being late.  I mean he wouldn’t just stand me up.  I mean I am going to be his wife … right?  He cant avoid me forever.  I mean we live together.  But anyways…I am sitting at this Brunch table that is yes Paris inspired and I love it.  Looking out over the beautiful waters of the land that is now what we call permanently home.  Its peaceful and its ours.  Hidden little treasures all over the place to be discovered and I am showing off just one, though not hidden.  Its out in the open.  Our dock, the one place that is prominent on our land. I want to make it as home feeling as possible.  I started again with the table that is Paris inspired and I couldn’t help but add the cake that came from Apple Fall, the fig cake is a beautiful addition to the table.  What is a nice finishing touch to the table is love notes! Caleb tends to write me little love notes often.  I cannot help but keep them with me.  All pristine and wonderfully written.  He makes my little heart patter.  He is amazing.  Even if he is  l a t e.

While I am sitting on the dock waiting for my oh so late fiance to come to meet me for our semi late Brunch, I guess it would make it lunch now.  I am dressed up in my newest favorite outfit from Addams, its new.  It reminds of a Sailing outfit that girls would wear on boats, wind blowing in their hair which by the way I am sporting the new hair from Pr!itty.  The look is perfect for being on the dock a sweet date on the verge of happening.  Ok well all jokes aside, Caleb is a great guy, always caters to my needs and wants, even if I am a pain in the butt to him.  This will be the only time I admit that to anyone haha.  I know he will always be there when I need him the most specially when I am being silly in the blogs.  Our little adventures and ideas are one of my favorite pass times.  And this is one of them.  After this last picture of the whole scene, I will place all the items in the pictures and the items I am wearing, and the items that are used for decoration in our pictures!!

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.

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.

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?

DayDate – Picnic on the Beach

Hello my pretty peoples.  So I had a nice little surprise when I logged on to SL.  The husband planned out a little picnic to go with the blog idea I wanted to do.  He set it all up and made it all pretty and amazing for me to take a picture.  So the details of what I am using are listed below.  Also I am listing the clothing that he is wearing too!

I am wearing all kinds of great things in today’s post.  Lets start with the outfit, JUST BECAUSE just placed out this amazing cuteness of an outfit, it was perfect for the beach picnic.  With the fatpack you will get a HUD that will allow you to change the colors of the material to make it however you want to look.  I was totally in love with red of the shorts, which for me is different, I am usually the girl that will reach for the blues instantly, but I was really loving this look.  I paired it with her tube top that matches the shorts, you can change the colors and pick the look that would go good for you ♥

I am wearing one of my favorite hairs, which was at a past Hair Fair event, but I am sure you can grab this style at the main store now.  The bucket hat is great for keeping the sun out of your eyes and even has a HUD that allows you to pick from different colors.  There are a couple of Logo’s for you to pick from … but I liked the plain look a little more.  I chose the blue for this look and I really loved it it made my outfit look ♥

Last but one of my favs is the REIGN sandals. IF you hurry over to REIGN you can get these very adorable shoes for 150L in the super huge mega fatpack.  I say this because its three different pairs of shoes in the pack! This is a limited deal so you might want to do this one first.  Now these platform sandals are amazing and this as well comes with a HUD that allows you to pick from some summer patterns.  These are that main store, in the front of the building on the table. ♥
