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.

Can’t a Girl get Ready?!

Hi everyone! All I wanted to do was get ready for an event that me and Caleb were going too.  I was rushing trying to get my earrings on and find my shoes! Caleb on the other hand found it rather amusing to follow me around and make faces.  Can’t a Girl get Ready?! I swear that is all I was thinking in my head.  But for real though I love Caleb and when he does the faces it makes me laugh, the whole time I was trying to be serious.  He is lucky I choose this picture! Because really there is a good one I caught of him looking all constipated haha, that or he farted either way.  But I am nice and just calling him out instead!

So you might be wondering what is happening.  Our daughter was nominated for an award that had to do with poses.  We are so proud she got nominated and wanted to celebrate with her, so we are getting all dolled up and getting ready to head out.  I am wearing the stunning Just Because dress called Tracy ♥ I am in love with this style of the dress.  Its the perfect kind of dress that you do not have to over accessorize.  Some earrings, and a bracelet and you are good to go.  The strappy area works around the neck leaving you to not have to wear a necklace.  Then when going to the bottom of the dress, its a diagonal cut that is just perfect for showing off the right amount of leg and still be modest (still wear your panties).  What I love the most about this dress is the detail, the way it fits the body, how the little wrinkle lines go in all the right places.  And the color choices in the fat pack are fabulous! Its a must have for those that want to go out and be a little fancy.  You can pick this up at the main store.  (Perfect for the holidays)

So my post for the day is really short and sweet.  I wanted to share this new dress by Just Because.  Like I said at the main store so head over and check it out! On that make sure you look at her whole store because the clothing is just amazing.  I have a nice collection of her designs and if you are lucky you can catch the collection she makes with her RL daughter.  They are adorable designs.  ♥  Read the creds below!

Pose by Caleb

Completely Untouched!

I have spent what seems like years looks at perfect looking pictures where people seem to be untouched! I have always wondered how people can look so good while the background is blurry and yet the person seems to fit flawless into it! Well this time while looking at the flickr I seen a new tutorial placed up that shows JUST how to do that flawless look.  I wanted to give it a go.  I am so amazed by the turn out of this picture!  Soo …

Thank you Daeberethwen Arbenlow for posting this tutorial that would allow me to create this amazing picture with out edits!! Anyone that is reading my blog, just click her name, its a link to her Flickr with the post that will show you how to do this amazing skill.  So what I am meaning by no edits is this … I took two pictures like she said.  THE ONLY thing I done in PS is followed her directions, which did not require to manipulate my avatar in any form.  This is a natural shot of my avatar in world.  I really cannot stop gushing over the technique.  I think I even annoyed Caleb with it so much so that he hung up the phone while I was talking haha.

If these are the results of what my pictures can be with a simple windlight, and the merging of two layers in PS to make me look like this… to give my readers the opportunity to see a clear shot of the looks without editing of the highest degree this is … just wow.  So click the name … take a shot and learn something new.  You will be happy with the results, if I can follow her directions … seriously anyone can!

Halloween Kissing Booth …

While Caleb’s away …

KIDDING …

Caleb actually put me in this position, its all his fault.  I mean we were looking to take our Darling, Angelic Daughter to pick some pumpkins.  I had to find a place to do this.  And I found one, actually.  But I will place a warning here.  This is both kid friend and not.  I mean there are TONS of kid friendly items here, and places for the littles to hang out and do things like pumpkin carving and picking pumpkins, but if you are a full RP family, they might become a little scared as some of the items here are a bit gory.  Click HERE for a Ride.

Addams is amazing in the clothing she makes.  There is a brand new release at the store, and its the Robyn set. I am completely in love with this.  Its high waist pants, and cropped top.  Addams is one of the stores that if you get a white top its white and not the off greyish color. But what gets me about this particular top is the details .. The wrinkles.  I love the way it wears with the pants too.  Which are very flattering to figures.  I always find that no matter how you build your avatar, that Addams clothing are very flattering to body forms.

So if you are looking for a good time, fun with your family, or just a place to go hang out and take pictures, this would be the best place to do it.  This is a rez land, PLEASE be respectful if you put items down to please pick them back up.  Oh and have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Right Here Waiting ..

So as the title states I am waiting … you might ask for what I am waiting for?  Welp that would be the husband! He was gone for a WHOLE WEEK and I am traumatized. Lucky him he went to this magical place called the City that Never Sleeps, and did all the fun things, and you know what?! HE LEFT ME HOME! I mean all kidding aside, I am happy to have him home though, its rough being away from your loved ones for so long.  But I did have our little cute kiddo to play with … so many hearts here! While he was away though, I did manage to go shopping.  The one time I am allowed to do the events without him.  So I visited Collabor88 AGAIN! I went twice because I wanted things I missed out on because of it being busy ♥

I really wanted these pants, I mean CYNFUL … GIRL yes please with these pants.  I been looking for amazing jeans that do JUST THIS.  I love wide leg pants, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how these cover the toes.  I mean these bad girls are perfect for the heels.  That little sliver of shoe to poke out.  OR TOES! I mean I did wear these barefoots.  BUT I AM IN LOVE … yes I am using all the caps with these pants.  Because I want them all! UGH! I swear, just gimme them.  Ok well I will buy them but shh we can all wish right!

Then! yes my then deserves a big exclamation mark.  I picked up this sweater/top with scarf from Just Because … UGH I am in love with this too.  This just screams fall to me! I swear I wanted to do all the colors all at one time with this shirt, but I had to pick one to feature.  So I went the basic route and choose the black color.  All over the Flickr I have seen this top floating in so many colors, so I wanted to pick one that someone didn’t do.  But I am sure Black is out there already but shhh, lets pretend it was me that did it first.  BUT I love this scarf that goes with it.  I mean there are three to pick from in the material design.  All of them are equally beautiful and amazingly great to match the shirt.  And the color choices are superb too.  I just wanna wear it all at once, I know I keep saying that but its true.

So if you haven’t been to Collabor88 then you NEED TO GO NOW! I swear I am not yelling at you, I am just excited not about just the hubby coming home but the fact that shopping was so therapeutic to me that I wanna have you go out and feel it too! Anyhoo links are at the bottom and have fun shopping!! ♥♥

House is the Onsu Cucumber

Fall Is Upon Us

Well hello my pretties! ♥

I was lucky after a whole day of trying to FINALLY get into Collabor88.  I mean it was insane trying to get in.  But with a few helpful tricks of my TP hammer, and my shutting off all you people that aren’t my friends, I was able to walk around freely and no lag! And I got all the things I wanted and some Demos too.  The sad thing is with Demos you cannot try them at the main place with it being so full of people.  So I will be making a second trip back to get the rest of things I wanted.  But I will share what I did manage to get!

I want to start with my Decor this time! I mean omgosh Dust Bunny you outdid yourself with this set.  I mean hay barrels, flowers, wheel barrow and an ax in a log.  These items are PERFECT for the fall and great decorations.  I made the wall of hay by stacking them all up and just making it.  I think this would be great for any boarders that you want.  And even after the holidays this would be a great decoration for any part of your house, or barns if you have them! I also picked up this basket of pumpkins from Pilot which was part of a group of great items but I really wanted the pumpkins the most.  These are so adorable.  I had to have them ♥

Next at Collabor88 was my hair.  Exile always places out many great hairs.  I mean the colors are one of my favorites, and while I normally go for the blonds, in the packs, I love the reds for this fall look! Now they say that red and pink don’t mix but forget that, I am so rocking this look.  This hair is perfect for my Blueberry outfit. Which by the way is in the main-store. You can buy them in parts, or you can get the fat-pack.   To bring the whole look together, I picked up the new boots by Reign, from Collabor88.  These are the best staple to have for any any dress like outfit for the fall.  You can choose the colors, of many varieties and the socks come with it, which makes this even better.  For me this is a classic to my wardrobe and its nice that they are made for the bodies and fitted just right.  I feel like you will be seeing these more often.

Disdained …. Laundry

My day started off great till I realized that the laundry was piling up! With a little girl that gets into everything, and a husband that throws his dirty socks all over the floor .. it was up to me to brave the world of laundry.  Mind you Caleb is out of the area on a business trip of some sort, or maybe he is goofing off, who knows these days 😀  But I did decided that hanging the clothes outside would be the best on a day like this.  Autumn breeze mixing with the soft fabrics.  I know they will totally smell good.

But if you didn’t notice by the picture, I do disdain doing the laundry and little Rufus didn’t wanna do it either, as you can see the look on his face, the look of defeat.  That is because I made him hand me the clothes pins! I couldn’t do it alone you know … gosh! I needed a little help.

Oh Gosh, I almost forgot to mention the amazing things I been finding.  I have them all listed below for your convenience, but I am totally in love with the new FaMESHed item by Cae.  Yes, I am a broken record for her items, but look at them! I mean gorgeous pieces of gems around my neck, on my ears and this time on my wrist!! I mean its perfect.  Like always you can get them in a set, or in the separates.  HUDs that change all the little parts and areas of the jewelry.  I cannot get enough of these ♥

There is an event called forMAX that is happening right now to help out a fellow SL player.  While I am not familiar with the details of what is happening, its always a good thing to help those out in need if you can! So taking a little trip over to the event you can purchase this tank top from JustBecause, who has put in the time to lend a hand in helping out.  It comes in three colors, all say LOVE on them and its just perfect to wear with jeans and I am betting a cute jacket would look great over this too!

Well before I ramble to much, check out the list below.  Its all there, and have fun shopping!! ♥

Day Dreaming

I am extremely happy to show off this lingerie from Apple May Designs.  There are many colors to choose from and I am showing off the black, feeling a bit artsy with my picture this time.  This lovely piece is a bra and pantie set. I am not showing off the chain that hangs down the back of the set, I am showing off a unique part which is the words on the booty.  I have chosen to show off Naughty, but you can find some fun other words there too: Wifey, Spank Me, Yes Daddy – All come in the set.  So you can have a little fun, or you can wear them plain and not have words which is still equally sexy.

Wearing hair from Clawtooth, which features a plethora of waves that flow over the shoulder, with a bit of a flare. This is a great way to have that sophisticated look and yet gives off that alluring feel that you want to draw someone in.  This hair is in the main store and has many different color choices for you to pick from.  I really love the brown packs the darker of her hairs are my favorite.

Well that is all I wanted to show off in this post, why don’t you all head out have a little fun go shopping and be alluring!! All the items are listed below.  Check them out!

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! ♥

It’s Time for Sweaters…

Ahh the smell of fall in the air ♥ Those leaves are turning, and the Autumn items are coming out.  At least at our house they are! I have never been more excited.  Its my favorite time of the year.  I was shopping at FaMESHed, and I couldn’t believe the sweaters I found! Neve is a store that I haven’t shopped at in a really long time and when I seen this sweater hit my flickr feed .. I come to realize there are many stores I use to shop at and I haven’t visited in a long time.  Then it made me think of all the things I could be missing out on.  So I am going to try hitting up my landmarks and folders seeing where I haven’t been in a while and do a little more exploring. Maybe I will find something new in my little adventure.  We shall see 😀

Now I am excited to show another item, which is the hair I am wearing! This is by Exile, and you can find this at the Ebento event that has opened on the 10th so that means you should totally be able to get in now and not have to fight all that lag.  This hair is a little different than the more fluffy styles that Exile does.  This is a sleek and slender look.  I absolutely adore it. This is a great look for both lounging around and going out on a casual date.  I am sporting this look as the more casual outing.

Before you miss the sale at DeeTalez you should head over to the main store and pick up the skins that are on sale.  What I am really loving is that they are made for so many heads.  I am wearing the Lelutka head and personally I really love the detail of the skin and how it looks on the face.  Normally I am into the bit more tan colors, but when it comes to the cooler months, I adore wearing lighter colors, and this Nordic is perfect for my fall/winter look ♥

Now, I totally mentioned that I love the fall, and if you want some really cute and amazing little things for around your house .. check out What Next! I found all the cute things there that would make any house looks adorable for the holiday!
