The Beginning of a New Office

I AM SOOO EXCITED! There is one thing I love in the RL as much as I love in the SL and that is OFFICE STUFF! This goes for supplies and decorations.  I love going to craft stores and buying all the things to make fun items.  I love going to office supply stores and buying all the pens and papers … omgosh I want to go shopping just because of that.  I am lucky to have a designated space where I can place all the things that I buy.  I am very happy to announce that Epiphany is opened! I got all the good things there to start decorating my office.  All the supplies one would need.  Even better I had recently purchased some other goodies from What Next that pertain to blogging and I love it.  Being a blogger I want all the things that are blog worthy ♥

I am going to leave my blog simple as there isn’t much to really speak of.  I have all the items listed below.  One more thing, if you shop at Epiphany some of the booths are set up to purchase a full pack.  Sooo if you are like me and do not feel like playing the machines and just want to get to the point, that option is there for you! I love it.  OK anyways, check out the info below.  Go shopping and have fun ♥

Pool Side Fun

Hello my beautiful readers! Its sooo hot in the America right now, that I felt it would be good to do a pool outside post! Having a little BBQ and some good treats that would be refreshing would be nice.  So instead of jumping into my fashion first, I am going to talk about the surrounding items.  At UBER you can pick up the new BBQ from Moss and Mink, while I am using the decor version of this grill, it does have a usable one.  IT COOKS FOOD! Its a fun little grill and took me a moment to really figure it out, only because I don’t read directions at all.  I swear I feel like I know it all … and I do sometimes … yea.  But anyways it cooks such cute little BBQ foods that this was perfect for our pool side.

At the main store of DustBunny you can find the snow cone machine and cute little snow cone sets! I really love the berries that are decorating the cones and the stand.  Its a refreshing cooling ice that will definitely take the heat out of ya and leave a nice cooling sensation.  There are three colors in the package that you can pick for your cone machine, and there are two different fruits for your cones that give that fresh vibe and I really am loving it.  Healthy!  I paired this with a few items I already had from Dustbunny, like the heart table and the unicorn planter Just to add a little decoration around the items.  Very cute.   Another refreshing items are the watermelons and the blackberry drinks.  I always felt like if you were to go swimming you should have fruits and other items that would help hydrate you because the chlorine will suck it out the moisture in your body, so remember if you are out and swimming in the heat to keep hydrated.

Okay so my fashion! So my downfall in life is my LAQ heads, because I am in love with their heads, I buy all of them as they come out, but I always wanted the Nyx head and I never gotten it. Now I have it and I am wearing it.  What I really enjoy about LAQ is that you can mix and match the heads with her skins and know that you are getting a really cute look.  For example I am wearing the Nyx head which is an older Bento head that has been updated and paired it with the new Cherry Skin that has come out and is at Collabor88.  As you can see it matches like they were made for each other.  I am finding that mixing and matching heads and the skins are so much fun and I think you are looking at getting LAQ for your new heads to check out the mix and match!

The last thing I wanna talk about and show off is the Bikini I purchased its by Cynful and its amazing! When I seen it in the picture I didn’t realize that the sequins were all single placed or however it was made.  But its not painted on as a look.  Its upraised which is something I really like about this.  Its actually really realistic and shimmers in the light I really do like it.  I was in love with the blue when I laid my eyes on it.  There are so many colors to choose from and each of them are shiny and beautiful! So pick all the colors in my opinion.

So that is all for noow, check out the details below have fun shopping because yea, its shopping and its fun.  ♥

Everything is PRETTY in Pink

I have been gone for a little while, and it seems that Caleb’s blogs have been taking over.  But I am finding out things about myself. I need to take a step back and reevaluate what my blogging means to me. Its my creative outlet.  Its a place that I want to post my thoughts and show off the things I personally like in my Second Life world.  Which is what I am going to start doing now.  I love the creators that sponsor me.  They are the ones that helped keep me motivated.  Which makes what I am about to say one of the most hardest things I had ever done.  I sent out notecards to creators, I explained that while I love blogging, I needed to take some time to step back and reevaluate what I wanted from blogging.  Keep in mind I have been blogging for approximately 6 years now straight (not on this blog .. as I now share this with my husband) and I never really took a break for me to clear my head.  With that being said, I realized that my blogging skills have started looking the same.  I was not happy with what I was doing anymore.  It kills me to give up spaces that I have worked so hard to obtain you know.  NOT because the items come to me.  But because they are brands that I love and support.  They are business people and I get this.  Which shocked me when I turned in my cards that I needed to give my space to someone that deserved it right now … I got nothing but love and support! THESE are the people that make me happy and keep me going and motivate me to keep going.  Which meant taking a little time for myself.  Those creators did not give up on me and I will not give up on them.  So while some of them are not my sponsors, I will continue to purchase and blog their items.  By not having as many creators that I have a contract with, I am seeing that I am free to blog other stores in my inventory at a freer liberty.  This is not to say that anyone I was blogging for was a tyrant.  This is not the case.  I will just say I took on more than I can chew for my own good.  I don’t have as much time on my hands anymore.  I have a wonderful hubby and a family that is growing.  I have other things in my life now that make me happy too!  … OK rambling … I am just saying that I found a new look on my blogging life and I want to try something new.  It never hurts to try something different!

New in my world is LAQ, I am in love with her heads.  I wear them all the time as I find they are the best ones for my personal style.  I like the looks, the HUD .. and how easy it is to use.  Recently LAQ went under some construction to their heads and updated ALL of them! This was a big project, but at what cost you are asking?  Well no cost the customers! I say it like this because now you only have to purchase ONE hud … and your head choice.  This HUD works with ALL heads.  This cuts the cost of heads from 5k to a modest 1.5k  per head.  Which is a head lovers dream.  This means I can purchase ALL the heads that are updated and catch up on owning them all for WAY less.  Believe me this is a great deal specially for bloggers like me.  We are looking to save a little money and yet keep our looks different.  Faces are all the rage and I want them all.  Sooo now I can have them all at a great deal.  BY the way I am blogging SANDY the newest face of the LAQ family.  You can find her at UBER this round.  Opened on the 25th of June.  With her is make up, lashes, and other cute things that will complete your look.  I am sporting all the items that are LAQ for this head.  Want to know what they are just look in the itemized list of things below!  Disclaimer .. I did mod the shape to my body style, the face was barely touched.

I have decided that Cae and Just Because will remain showing up in my blogs because … WELP they are some of my favorite designers on the grid.  They have both showed me such love and support through my years of blogging I couldn’t have asked for better creators in my life.  Just Because is currently at UBER with this gorgeous dress.  I just died when I seen the WIP that was placed on the flickrs as a tease for us to look at.  The details are so cute with the tiny flowers and I realized yea … I need this dress in my life.  I recommend the fatpack because you get so many options on how to style this dress and you get the exclusive patterns that are only found in the pack.  I am pairing this with my Cae accessories you can find at FaMESHed which happened to open today! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Flamingos.  So this was something that I personally wanted so bad.  There are earrings too but as you can see my fluffy hair was not about to let me wear that! BUT the necklace is to die for.  Two cute birds encased in a circle.  I needed them in my life.  Next to the necklace was the amazing glasses I am wearing.  I really like how these frames fit.  I also like the freedom of styling them on top of the head too as that is where I tend to hide my glasses the most.  Its a horrid trait as they normally get stuck in my hair, but this is SL and I am not ripping my hairs out here!! Which is fantastic for me ♥

One more UBER thing for me is the hair! O M G the hair.  This fluffy gorgeous hair is all the rage in my books right now.  The curly mess that sits on my head is one of my new favorites, its short and all over the place and I think my favorite of the packs are the Ombres I am adoring the darker roots that flow down to a different color of your choice.  Well the choice of what is on the HUD … but either way is perfect in my opinion.  The whispy strands and the life this hair style brings is so fun and adorable.  I really do enjoy this style of hair.  So make sure you try the demo and try out all the colors each one is unique in its own way and  how they look on the style is fun and playful!

OK … long post over.  If you like these items.  Check them out below, I have all of them listed.  When you head over to the events make sure to look at the other designers too, I do believe there is something for everyone.  And have fun with your looks.  And don’t be scared to try something new ♥

Embrace Tranquility

Bonus points for those who know where the post title is inspired from 😛 DYNASTY has out a great traditional Chinese furniture set called Tranquility at The Epiphany this round. There are 10 total items to win (9 Commons and 1 Rare). There’s also an exclusive prize for those wanting a stone stool instead of the jade version. I couldn’t help but bring in parts of my childhood into this set as well. This set up is partly inspired by my mother. She absolutely loves plants and would have them grouped all over the house, especially near the entry way. For her, flowers and plants bring her tranquility and inner peace – a beautiful outlet from all the chaos that surrounds us all.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! If you aren’t hunting for eggs, then you are missing out! I’m sure there are many hunts happening around the grid right now, but for today’s post I am featuring MadPea’s annual Easter Egg Hunt and Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt. You won’t want to miss out on these fantastic Easter prizes so hurry and hunt for those eggs before they are all gone!

MadPea’s Easter Egg Hunt runs from March 22nd to April 5th, and the hunt is a dynamic experience where all egg hunters hunt at different sims on a daily basis. Eggs are constantly appearing and disappearing, giving hunters plenty of opportunity to rake in those points for prize redemption. Also, for a limited amount of time, golden eggs are being dropped from March 30th to April 2nd! These will drop surprise prizes and lots of points! Please note there is a $L100 fee to participate in this hunt. For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here. I’ll be covering the Easter Egg Hunt a lot more in detail in a later post. MadPea Easter Egg Hunt starting location: https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Neogene/133/182/150

The Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt runs from March 23rd to April 6th. This hunt is free to participate and all eggs are located on one single sim. To reduce lag, only 25 people are allowed on the sim at one time. There are a total of 70 eggs from a large selection of designers across the grid! Check out all the prizes here. Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt starting location: https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Land%20of%20Rainbows/47/74/28

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!

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!

Christmas Morning | Mine $ Yours

Featured: MadPea Christmas Certificate of Good Behavior by MadPea (MadPea Christmas Hunt Prize)

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.

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!

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!! ♥
