Beautiful day for a wedding …

May 20th 2018 is approaching really fast, Caleb and I have been … semi busy with planning and thinking of the wedding (ok not really).  Not that we aren’t excited about the wedding that is coming up but more that we are enjoying each others company more.  But we have finally taken a moment to just put our minds to it and just start to decorate.  I started off with Bridezilla intentions of having a blue and silver wedding because those are my favorite colors … and well that went south really fast because the more I thought about it, the more I realized I really don’t want to tie myself to two colors.  I want a variety of things happening at my wedding.  One thing is for sure though, I wanted a beachy wedding.  For sure that is something myself and Caleb really agree’d on because we both have this insane love for the beach.  So we set up a beachy island (when I say set up, we enlisted our decorating daughter to do so!) and poof we had a gorgeous outdoor space for our event!

ALOT of my decor is from Moss & Mink, which these items were part of the Arcade.  I worked really hard playing that machine to get everything I wanted.  Now she is a generous designer that will allow you to trade a full set of Trans for a full set of Copy.  Which was perfect for my needs.  We need lots of little cakes to set out at each of the tables for all to enjoy.  The aesthetic of it all was to be pleasing and yummy.  While we do have the longer buffet table to hold all the big goodies like our wedding cake, which again was perfect from her set.  I see it as one stop shopping to get the items I need for the wedding.  Now because this was an arcade item, there is a machine at the store where you can go up and see the demo and then play the machine to get all the goodies for yourself.  There are over 22 items to win, some of them are more for the color variations like the chairs, tables, and balloons.  The rest of the food goodies are all the same choice, then you have the two rares, the big cake and the conservatory.  All of which the items are very cute and fun to decorate with.

So if you are like me and are in need of some very sweet wedding items, or you are wanting party items for other special occasions, I would suggest that you cater to the girly girl in you and have your fun playing this machine, even Caleb is manly enough to have these at his wedding ♥  Make sure to check out the other amazing things she has in her store, if you are a cute frilly type of person this store is definitely for you!

It’s Time To Decorate

H A P P Y   H O L I D A Y S ~ Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great day.  Mine is coming to a close as I am writing this blog.  But I reallly wanted to blog this dress.  I think Just Because has been hitting it hard with the dresses lately, and this one just totally captured my eyes.  This is a perfect holiday dress and you can get it from FaMESHed right now! There are so many colors, and they are all amazing, but I have to admit the red really caught my eye.  Here is the funny thing, I normally am not a red kinda girl, even on the holidays would pick a green over the red.  So you have to know how amazing this dress color with texture is for me to wear it ♥ I cannot get over it.  And and and … MY NECKLACE! This is a new thing too I never knew that Just Because made accessories.  But this you can get from Pay It Forward, and its TRANS! This makes for the most perfect gift ever.  So people go get your girls this gorgeous thing.  Its completely customizable with the colors, and I adore the fit with this.  I had no issues to adjust just slightly to make my fat neck fit into this ♥

If you are curious about my background, just head over to Cosmopolitan and you can find this beauty in four gorgeous colors.  I really liked the blue because I felt this could be more usable after the holidays.  But the pieces of this background are completely brilliant in the fact that it gives your pictures a bit of oomph and a quick and easy way to take a snap shot.  So make sure that you go check out the event there are other cute items there as well ♥

Ok, I am going to end this post here, you can find all the informations below.  Again, Happy Holidays and have fun shopping!

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.
