Going to my room ..

Hi everyone! Today is going to be a quick little post.  Honestly, I felt like doing a picture. I was very inspired by this set that was created by Foxcity.  This hotel background is new at Kustom9 and frankly it was so much fun to work with! I am using the lighted model, this gives you lights in certain areas, and if you use different lights you will see different ways that the lights reflect.  I was in awe over the night time look that I managed to produce.  There are poses that go with the set for a separate purchase, though I am not using them in this post, I really was loving the ones I had found from Pose Maniacs, you can find these at Limit8 and don’t worry, the poses are not the limited item so you are good to get them ♥

I am including a bigger picture of my next item at the end of the credits, but I am sporting the necklace by Cae, currently its at the Chapter Four, I know there has been some controversy with this event, but I am going to say it like this… I am a supporter of a brand, the designer, the hard worker.  So for me the event didn’t matter, it was Caelan and her amazing hard work.  But so you know if you don’t want to go to the event that is just fine, this item will be in her main store very soon and just in time for Easter! This bunny necklace comes with a HUD that lets you change the stones and metals of the necklace, there are even earrings that come with. ALSO – There are gift options!! So you can get your special someone that special gift ♥

Lastly I am going to speak of my hair, its by Exile, this hair is a bit on the crazy side and I really love it.  Messy and completely windblown if you ask me.  You can find this beauty at the Collabor88 event.  Make sure you head over before they close, because then you will have to wait till its released in the main store! I had a hard time picking which hair color I wanted to go for, because this style looks amazing in all the colors you could choose! It a total need in my inventory.  And it should be in yours too. Head on over and test out the demo! ♥

Whatchu Eating Livvy?

Hello! I guess everyone has a routine.  Mine is getting up and starting my day in the best of ways.  Most people eat Breakfast, whelp that is not for me! I am a brunch like girl, I am not big on eating in the morning.  So I use my morning to get ready, looking pretty for my future husband ♥ I do that by dressing up in the prettiest of dresses like this one for instance! Just Because has come out with another fabulous dress.  I was completely inspired by the pastel pallet that was in the pack.  The fat pack comes with all the colors and I just couldn’t resist the color choices, so full of spring and away from that pesky winter weather.  I just couldn’t resist it!  And golly look at the details, I mean that is one of the reasons I was really wanting this dress.  It shadows in all the right places and in particular windlights its extremely highlighted in the best ways.

Next I was inspired by the new hair that Exile released.  I went with my normal blond choice by Kavar, I love all the colors don’t get me wrong, but I believe that his blonds are one of the best on the grid.  What I really enjoy is the style of this hair, its long and swept all over the it looks slightly wind blown but yet still well kept.  Something I really appreciate with this hair color choice is the roots.  I always find that I float towards the rooted versions of the hairs.  It gives that bit of pop that one needs, and still keeping natural.  You can find this beauty in the main store!

Then you have my Fabulous necklace here! This is another amazing Cae creation.  And as I tend to mention its one of my favorite styles by her.  Layers.  I love when her items have layers.  It gives that dimensional look that you can pick and choose what you wear.  You can hide layers and change the colors of each of them, from the metals to the jewels.  Its one of those items you don’t want to go without.  Personally I always have a necklace on and 9 out of 10 its ones of hers haha.  Bias maybe … but its just my opinion and how I feel about the brand.  This item can be found at Cosmopolitan this round.  So make sure you head on over and pick it up.  It’s an amazing deal! ♥

Now my post is called Whatchu eating Livvy? That is because I start my day getting pretty and after getting all pretty, I work up an appetite. What better than starting your day with some toast, egg, and avocado … with a side of grapefruit, and a little tea, and a big ol cup of cappuccino.  This is a healthy way to eat and apparently avocado is all the rage these days and its very nice paired with toast and eggs.  How do you all like your eggs?  I really like mine when I take a big bite and the yolk breaks and runs.  I find that most people don’t like their eggs that way.  That is okay because its more for me! And to keep my pep up I enjoy a very nice warm cup of tea … then I NEED MY CAFFEINE! You wanna decorate your table like mine?  Well I got so many goodies from Apple Fall and Dustbunny.  I am completely taken by the fact that the items look so realistic.  That is one of the biggest qualities that you find with these two brands, I am always amazed at how real items look in my home, I mean as real as the SL limits allow them to be.  It makes my kitchen all that more enjoyable to be in!

Just Breathe …

Hello my pretty people! I hope you are all having a good day.  I am finally over being sick for the moment, and I decided to do this blog.  A little mix of this and that from different events.  But I have to say at the moment and I really don’t like doing favorites, but this hat/hair combo! Have you ever seen that 80’s movie “Cant Buy Me Love” if you haven’t because this was before your time, then you should check it out! The girl wears a hat and has hair very similar to this.  I am loving it.  I want more hairs like this one ♥ You can find it at N21.

You can also find the pose that I am using at N21 too. This is by Foxcity now I have to admit I have been obsessively buying her poses lately.  They are bento and work extremely well with my body type.  I say this because most poses are based on body type and not all work with every shape.  But amazing as she is, there is a demo box there for you to test out the poses.  This makes shopping and testing out how great this would be for you! I think a lot of you will love the poses ♥

Next up I wanna talk about REWIND, this little event is where you can find items from the past.  Now I don’t mean the noob stuff from 2009, but actual items that designed like they were from Y2k as I do think this was theme of that round.  Apple May Designs has placed out these hot and tight leather pants.  Let me tell you, while I was sitting here posed like this, Caleb happened to log on and I swear that boys tongue hung out his mouth a mile long.  So if I get that kinda approval, I know you girls will too.

Last and not least by any means is another amazing Cae necklace.  This is one of my favorites of her designs.  Its a layer necklace, this is a great opportunity to mention that it comes with a HUD and a ton of options to change up your necklace.  For instance you can make each layer a different color metal, a different gem color, and many different looks.  I can totally get behind anything that allows you to customize your look to what you are wearing.  So really a must have and yes, I say that a lot ♥

ANYHOOOOOOO, you all have fun shopping and get your items and more items and other items from these events because its fun and you all the things in your inventory ♥

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!!

Who is that girl?!

WowWEE that is all I got to say for the dress I am wearing today! Do you see this beauty.  What I love about this style is that its almost a modern take on a older style dress.  But do you want to know the kicker to this?! Its a collaboration between mother and daughter in RL.  That’s right, JustBecause creator Annie, has been doing some creations with her talented RL daughter and transforming ideas into the SL world.  Now, most people don’t have an issue with what I am going to mention.  As beautiful as this dress is … what gets me is that while it flows really nice while you are standing still … when you walk the flow kicks up in the back.  That is not a total put off though, because I am loving on the design features, like the details where you can change the colors of not only the dress itself but the feathers and the belts! The fatpack itself has some really beautiful metallic colors too.  But I have to admit this blue was my absolute favorite.  The glitters on it gives off that “I am fabulous” kick too! So I do have to say there is more to love then to not.  Which makes this a total want in my book! ♥

I paired my dress with some accessories, CAE again …Yes again.  If you look at the bottom of my post you will see the necklace and earrings I am wearing.  The necklace is in a light blue to match the dress I am wearing, while I made my earrings black.  The HUD in the set allows you to achieve that perfect look.  A plus to this set is there is a MATERIALS look! I cannot believe how much of a difference it made to me when I was taking the picture.  I don’t know for some reason I feel like it has a more in depth look in the picture, even from afar! Woowza!  I even paired this with another item, that is by Blueberry and its from a past gacha but this gorgeous mask! I wanted to add a hint of mystery to the look and I got it just from the mask.  I felt it was fitting for the look ♥

I decided while Caleb is away, I would go look for a place to blog.  I found this really gorgeous 1940’s themed sim.  I want to say I was really apprehensive when I landed here, because the first thing I seen was a tower of freebies.  I was like whaaat.  But when I turned, there lied a bit BIG portal that you walk through that magically transform the sim into a really laid out sim that is detailed to the older times.  Its absolutely wonderful to explore, old cars, old posters, all the things that would make your exploring great.  Please respect the rules if you are going to visit.  I felt my attire was slightly themed if I was heading to the ballroom which is actually the building behind me … the outside was littered with these gorgeous movie posters.  It was a blast to check out!  So stay tuned you might see more from this sim in the future ♥

Prepping for the ….

Well hii everyone! Gosh this look … I can’t even right now tell you how much fun I had playing around with this look.  I think once again I have found a new head.  Shh, dont judge me! We all have our vices and I think mine are shoes, hair, heads, coffee….OK so I have a lot of vices, but I am allowed to have them.  That is what makes my blogging job here so fun! So, if you were lucky a few weeks back LAQ released a new head for like 500L! I was like are you kidding me! A full bento head for like a really amazing price and she is GORGEOUS! I mean I am loving this head.  Its a mix of not old … but not uber looking young.  She has that I am adulting look to her.  Now I am going to tell you, the shape that she comes with is great, but my preferences is to have a little more meat on my bones.  But the face is literally untouched for the most part.  I think I might have made tiny adjustments to fit the skin a bit more.  NOW let me tell you like my other LAQ head, this skin is the best version for her. I have not found any other skin that I adored on this head which like I said last time is a rarity for me.  But at the same time it makes my life easier because I don’t have to hunt and look for a skin that makes me feel beautiful! Besides the reaction I got from Caleb when he seen me in it … yea, I think I will be keeping this head for a bit (at least till the next head comes out) Shhh Vices!!!

Alright, so the things I am wearing … gosh there is a lot going on here. I am wearing from Apple May items from Collabor88! Its a week into the event and you can totally get in now with out all the rush of the crazed shoppers that want to go on the first day! You know like me, I will spend so much time trying to get in … but that is besides the point.  This outfit, is gorgeous and there are several ways to wear it.  You have this beautiful head band (which I paired with Exile hair from the event!) Then you have the corset and panties, now the corset in the fat pack gives you a ton of colors to play with.  Which every girl needs is variety! But you have the option to wear just the corset or you can wear the top with it.  I have chosen to keep the top on for now.  That comes off later *winks*.  Believe me this is a very fun and detailed outfit to have specially if you wanting to impress that special someone in your life! This will definitely get their attention.

Now another staple piece to my outfit is the accessories I have from Cae.  YES more Cae, because you need all the things from her.  I am dying for these layered necklaces she keeps making.  The tiers are beautiful for lining the neck and keep the attention focus in places that they should be 🙂 But its a great compliment to the outfit.  With her items you get the HUD that allows you to change the stone and metal colors of EACH section.  Which give you so many opportunities to create a look that you would love.  As always I am impressed with her skills in creating things that make me feel so pretty.  And at her store you can pick up gift cards to give to your loved ones so they can experience her greatness too!

Ok so last but not least … which is a bit of a new thing for me.  The background items I am using.  These items have come from Deco Crate.  Now, Caleb purchased the crate so I have to credit him on rezzing these items out for me.  And now I wished I purchased this one because WOW.  He kept rezzing these things out and I was like … OH BABY I WANT THAT! or I NEED THAT TOO! and he would just look at me like I was crazy.  This box was totally for the girly girl in me.  So I am going to list the items below so you can see what was set out.  But omgosh, so cute and fun to play with! PS the pose I am using this pose is in the vanity.  Sooo I am keeping my revolution up! Just saying. I didn’t fail yet!

Hello Gorgeous!

Well Hello Everyone!  So I think I want to tweak my New Years Revolution.  I think for this year I want to add CREDIT MY POSES! I am horrible at this.  I mean really, look at my past blogs and I have not really credit my poses.  Here is the issue with it.  I have learned so many tricks and tips on blogging that poses were never mentioned.  I have my poses in a HUD or I have them in a single pose and when I am done with using them, I tend to close out so I have my full screen to do some blogging.  Now what sucks is I should be promoting all the brands I am blogging for.  So I am such a bad person at this I am taking responsibility.  Isn’t that the first step?  I mean admitting you did something wrong?  I do something wrong all the time so this will be the first one that I am going to admit too!

So I am shouting out the fact I am blogging the items from Foxcity! Now here is the funny thing about this store and creator.  I actually use her poses a lot.  Yes, she has been mentioned in my blogs before, but I haven’t really gave credit to her.  So this is my I am sorry, and I am going to try and do better.  Now I am going to add a little disclaimer in here but in no way excuses my actions.  When I am a sponsored blogger, I do and will credit ALL items.  But I am not sponsored by any pose stores.  But again that is no excuse to not credit someones hard work. This is my new years revolution and yes I know its resolution, but I like the word revolution better.

So these amazing poses and the background you can find at Chapter 4 they are a great deal, two separate items to purchase, so if you want just poses or just background you can do that! So take your choice.  Mine was to purchase both parts  ♥

Come a Little Closer

Today I am taking a bit different approach to my close up picture.   I got a bit artsy, kinda … not really, I am sure many people have done this style before.  But I really wanted to show case some really cute and amazing items.  I am not sure where I want to start.  Uhm…. *three hours later* ok the hair.  Exile.  So cute, Its big floofy and adorable.  It reminds me of a semi Farrah Fawcett looking hair.  If you are old enough to know who she is you will understand.  (I AM OLD!) This gorgeous look is new at the Main Store … just waiting for you to pick her up.  So make sure you go do that and have big beautiful floofy hair too!

I am bringing another Christmas Special necklace to the table.  This is again Cae.  This holiday wreath is gorgeous and would make the perfect gift for that someone in your life that loves to have all the beautiful things.  This precious necklace comes with a HUD … but personally why would you want to change the seasonal color of this wreath.  The Christmas theme is just what this necklace is all about.  This can be found at the Tannenbaum event with all the other cute accessories I shown in the previous post.  You can pick up matching earrings too! If you just want parts that is okay, and if you want the complete set then you can buy the full package and save a little L (Who doesn’t wanna do that!) Make sure you head on over and check out the event and her store!

So my Two for One here … I changed my face (AGAIN!) I am sporting a new Catwa head, which is new for me.  This is Lily, and if you got her on the day of release you were able to save 50% off the order.  Which for some is the best deal ever.  The good thing about Catwa is she allows you to take the demo head and allows demo skins to be placed on it so that you can find the perfect match of what you are looking for! Which leaves you wanting to try all the skins, and its nice to play with certain aspects of this face.  Its fully functional in the demo.  I will admit switching over has been a bit hard for me being I am use to a different head, but it only took a bit to figure out what I wanted and needed to make this HUD work the best way for me.   I chosen the new skin from League.  I swear her skins are best for the Catwa head.  I love the details and how she doesn’t have the oh so young look to her face.  I feel young at heart and still hold a bit of youth to myself.  There are several shades to choose from so make sure you are trying them all out to find that right tone for you.  I am wearing pale.  But to be honest the pale is a slightly tan color and one of the most beautiful in the packs.  There are several make up options as well as freakles (yes that is how I say it).  Either way you would be happy with this look ♥

Ok so  I am not rambling all night, check out the credits below so you know what is what, and go out and have fun shopping.  Remember its the holidays and gift cards at these places are totally amazing!!

Up Close and Personal

Hey Everyone! I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!! But now that the Fall holiday is over, Caleb and I are putting out the winter things.  Being that time flies so fast in SL we are building our winter wonderland. So the snow is coming out, and the Christmas stuff is coming forward.  And I have some really great little up close items for you to check out this post! Did you know that Tannenbaum has opened?! So excited for that! If you go there, you will find so many cute things to decorate your homes, land and even yourselves with! Some thing for everyone I say.  This is more on the accessorizing side of things for me this post.  Hence why I am up close and personal.  Festively speaking I am wearing so many great things.  Normally I tend to forget to blog my make-up … or maybe its because I dont wanna share … who knows with me … but this time I am really sharing because its IZZIES! and honestly, I really love her makeup … actually most of the makeup I wear is from her so if you see it on me and I don’t mention it … yea, its prolly Izzies, cause for me its the best ♥ Now The eye makeup and the lipstick set are both at Tannenbaum and they are shimmers and glitters which makes me happy.  Sparkle like the snow … yep I said that dreaded word … SNOW! Its gonna be falling soon … or maybe it has been falling on you already.  But its coming … WINTER IS COMING! (GoT reference for my nerds).

While at Tannenbaum make sure to get the jewels from CAE! Yes, I am blogging Cae again … uhm because I wanna and I stilll love her stuff.  And I will own it all.  But let me tell you about the cute Holiday items.  There is a cute Christmas Tree earring set.  I am in love with these. I believe there is necklace in the set too, but I didn’t wear that one because I wanted this Reindeer one on my neck right away!  Its a cute little circle charm with a Rudolf cut right in the middle.  I say that because my gem is red! And its the nose of the reindeer.  But yea, this is so cute and I have a ton more in the Tannenbaum collection of hers to show next.  So keep a look out for that.

Okay so UBER opened.  BUT I am going to tell you that I didn’t get this hair from UBER … because I tested my skills at one of the many perks of the VIP TRUTH group.  I tried my hand at telling a little story to the Group Moderator of the group.  Once in a while they ask a question and you submit your answer.  This time it was WHAT WOULD YOU DO (IN WORLD) WITH UNLIMITED LINDENS? and I won the prize, which is the new release in the fat pack.  I really enjoy this hair because it can be worn in several different ways, thanks to the new Style HUD that was created.  Also on that with all the endless color options its perfect.  Its a great holiday if you are looking for a dressy casual look! If you are looking for this hair though, its at UBER!

Now my last item but one of my favorites too! Is my sweater ♥ Just Because has placed out another adorable item! This sweater is perfect for the holidays too.  I wore this in the orange for our family Thanksgiving dinner.  But being I am blogging the upcoming holidays the green was a perfect fit for the background look I was going for. That and I think its a beautiful color.  Like always I love the little details from the way the sweater looks realistic and the way the buttons are placed.  It shows the care that the designer has placed into their item and that makes me want it so much more.  While I do blog a lot of Just Because .. its because I know that she places lots of care into her items.  So I am proud to show this brand and other brands like hers! ♥

Let It Snow – Ugh

Today was so cold outside where I live, that it actually snowed.  Maybe just a few flurries here and there, but it was enough to make me realize that nothing will stop the fact that winter is indeed coming.  So this picture is me throwing in the towel so to speak to finally embrace winter … not that I want to or anything, but I have to admit I do look good doing it.  Just Because released another gorgeous dress! This one I made completely festive with the red color.  Now for me, red is not a color I normally go for.  I love the blue tones that she tends to place out.  But honestly this one just called to me.  I wanted to go with a beautiful color that would put me in the spirits, and this one did just that.  Honestly what I really love about this dress is the tied knot that falls in the crevice of the breasts.  It gives that little bit of flair ♥

I paired this with one my newest favorite Cae items.  This Trinket Necklace allows you to pick a letter of your choice on the circle.  I choose the letter C for Caleb, and I am wearing the longer version of this necklace because I can keep it close to my heart, its adorned with a small red jewel, but it doesn’t have to be red .. infact you can pick another color off the HUD.  Whyyyy Caelan do you have to keep coming out with all the cute things I want in my life! I mean that in such a good way! I never would complain about all the cute things in my inventory … please keep them coming to my inventory! ♥

Welp, that is all I got for now, because … I don’t have anything else to say.  Now lets end this post so that you can go shopping!! oh and don’t let the snow bring you down to muuuch.
