Not For Sale…

The first picture is the Caleb’s version of our Moving House!!

Moving has never been a fun task, not for anyone really.  But when you do move you have this exciting rush of emotion of what your new life will be like.  Some people including myself sit and think of what they can do with a simple piece of land.  While my hubbyface is a procrastinator (really just busy).  I sit and day dream of what our new home will finally look like in the end. Here is our story …

It started with a note-card…

I arrive home to my Caleb reading a note that we will have to move our home, that he has had for years. The owners decided they wanted to do something else with this land, despite him having his life there.  While I do not agree with how it went down, that is perfectly fine, because we have our dream spot.  Even better at a cheaper rate.  Did you know that homesteads and sims aren’t a bad price at all?

I found this to be an opportunity, because we are getting to start over in a new home with a new life that we have started.  Its a fresh start from an old life that no longer existed and we had wide waters for us to play with and do as we would dream up.  We packed up our belongings and dragged our butts to the new land that has so much potential in our eyes.  The skies the limits when you are doing things like this.  We even managed to find a cute house for sale…. so we snatched that right up. Cute houses around here are so hard to find, I swear. BUT we had enough rooms to house the little munchkins that came along for the ride.

At this point we are setting down roots.  This will be home for us.  You may have noticed from my picture and Caleb’s we have a little dictator.  My Little Nessy (Ok Caleb’s too) decided that she was gonna call the shots. I mean really she learned from the best on how to do that, so I see a very bright future ahead for her.  If you really look at the picture, you will see who is doing most of the work here *points to self* I mean did you see the boxes I was trying lug up the steps.  That is not an easy task.  Caleb took all the light boxes, I swear he did, and you know who will have to do the unpacking too right?  Because, well, I am picky and I don’t want him messing it all up.   *Caleb’s in the background here*  Really don’t pay attention to him, because we all know that the girl is the super picky one when it comes to decorating.  Now I am not saying a man cannot do that … so don’t think I am trying to insert that a man can’t be pretty or whatever … but in my relationship this is how it is.  Just saying.

ANYWAY!

We then had a table set up for a moving in party, which was just Caleb, Nessy, and myself.  I mean what did you expect us to eat, we were just moving in! We had no food yet … actually we still have no food yet … but like we had cake … we all have cake! And Caleb’s favorite Pineapple Juice … well actually he likes pineapple things, I am not sure if that is really his favorite … but we will just go with it.  There was streamers and a couple of presents and Balloons … I mean the presents were items that we packed up in a box and wrapped for the fun of it … but shhh no one reallllly has to know that! I mean that is really about it though.  It was a fun and eventful day and I got to spend it with the two people I love the most.  And that is all I need.  That is our story for now.  As the home progresses, I might do a few of the rooms and see what else I can show you!

She is Always RIGHT …

Hi everyone!

So the one thing that me and Caleb are always talking about is the fact that I am always right! He wont agree, but as you will clearly see in the in the picture, he is Mr. Right, and I am Mrs. Always Right.  It’s plain as day right there on the sign on the wall.  I know he is going to argue me on this but that is alright.  Honestly, we have a really good relationship where we both tend to be right, though he does tell me I am right more often … but shh I didn’t tell you all that.

You are probably wondering where all this stuff came from right?  Welp its from Sway’s.  Now as long as I can remember Sway Dench has been around making cute creations of the Adult and PG kind.  I think my inventory is covered in all her items and honestly, I really like them.  They are simple and yet so well made.  I find that her stuff is great for the fam life.  And with two little girls running around you need to have that PG fun.  Plus what I love about these particular items I have set up is they are all from different sets, and the coloration of them all match! So you can take items from her sets and mix and match them.

So to be perfectly honest, I am not sure what events these might have come from as I dug in into my inventory to make the look.  I felt like doing something a little different today than my normal clothing post.  I haven’t really blogged Sway’s in a while, so this is a dedication to her and the great items she makes.  BUT the good thing is…all these items can be found at her main store.  BUT BUT BUT even better than that .. WHILE you are at the main store you can shop for all the other great things she sells. Soo make sure that you check it out ♥

Lazy Summer Fun Day…

Hiiii everyone! Who is holding on to the ending of the summer days? I know over here in the US, we are clinging to our finals month or so of our summer before it goes to that amazing Autumn time where sweaters come out.  Then again I guess if you are in the south or the West Coast (*eyes Caleb*) you could be in the summer all year long where its always warm and you can go to the beach forever.  I swear … ugh.

Anyhoo, we went shopping at a few events this month, and for the furniture aspect of things, we found this so cute adorable pool by Circa! Not only that with this area of stuff in her booth we managed to get our hands on the star fishes that I stuck on the side of the inflatable.  What really is cool, is yes while I have them there, it is however made for the beach floor, so I will be littering them all over our island soon enough.  The pool also has 18 poses in it for your fun time splashing around, now this item is made for the family setting, so no adulting in this one unless you use your imagination (seriously who did the Sponge-bob hand wave for that?) I also snagged up some floaties that go with this pool from Circa too!  But there is a bonus!!! So if you manage to get your hands on the fat-pack set you get the bonus palm trees which are pictured too.   So make sure you check that out, and I am almost positive that when the events are over you can find them in her main store location 😉

Next we went to the Comopolitan and omgosh, I found this really cute table of the goodies by Focus Poses, now this however is more for decoration because there are no poses in this set.  Which is really fine for me, specially when you are looking to for that quick snack table to place out.  This was exactly what was needed.  Now just a warning, there are adulting beverages on here so if you have the kids over … make sure you tell them to not grab the beers 💙

So check out the events and these amazing designers while there check out the other booths too, you never know what you will find 🐻

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. ♥

I Sing For Him….

Hello my lovelies, while being carried around by the Mafia boss today like the princess I am … we decided to hit up some events.  First off being the Vintage fair, where we found a plethora of items that we absolutely love.  This event is catered to all things from the past, from all sorts of time periods, so if you are into the older items you can check it out.  Because I am blogging so much from the events, please check out the listing below to find out what all came from there!

We also went to Collabor88 where you will find most of what I am wearing, like my hair and the dress.  I am loving the long flowing locks that I gotten from Exile and its a great hair piece to add to your collection of hairs, well if you are anything like me, its a massive collection of hair, but its another design that will fit amazingly with my styles.  I am also sporting this mini like dress by Apple May Design, and its a gorgeous number, I love the look of it and the way it wrinkles in all the right places.  The details are perfect, and the shading details are defiantly eye catching … though the Mafia boss was not happy about me walking around in it … so controlling ♥

The last thing on my list for events that I went to is TLC where you will find the heels I am wearing from Eudora, now it seems he has been on a bit of a hiatus and its nice to see Mr. Eudora back in business and creating.  Like usual his shoes are amazing, they come with a HUD that allows you to change just about every little detail of the shoe to be exactly what you are looking for to match an outfit.  Now with these shoes if you have ALL the huds, you can mix and match them to make have colors from different huds allowing to make TONS of color mixes.  I had fun doing that with my shoes.

So everyone reading, go out have fun make your own styles, and check out all the events I promise there is something for everyone at each one.  I am however not responsible for your over spending of lindens! Have fun 😀 ♥

Summer Time Fun … Knot & Co. Gifts

Hii everyone! So, I had the pleasure of dragging the boyfrand to the Knot & Co.  opening where each week for the whole summer, a designer or maybe designers will place out and item for you to purchase.  The cool thing is … at the end of that week the items are placed in the back room so that if you miss a week you can still get them.   BUT what I realllly wanted where these amazing gifts from Anya Ohmai ~ In case you didn’t know she has closed down her store but appears once in a while when she feels like creating.  So when I seen that she was placing an item out at Knot & Co.  I knew I had to have them.  

There are two things from her that are free little gifts.  You do have to be part of the group and the group is absolutely free.  So you just need a little space.  There are FOUR drinks you can pick up (Pineapple, Lemon, Cumber, and Strawberry) as well as these bracelets.  NOW you would think they are female bracelets, but Caleb was determined to customize his and make them manly and he did just that … so see men can do girl things too and make them look just awesome.  ♥

So head over to Knot & Co.  Check out the items pick up your gifties and have fun.  Because its summer and its all about having the fun!

Bright and Sunny With You!

Hello my beauties! I am back with another gorgeous scene, the boyfriend set up some amazing things we have bought from our shoppings this weekend.  So I am going to start with my Fifty Linden Friday set.  You will see on the side of the picture a lovely bar set that is by What Next.  Now I have been shopping What Next items for a long time and she has been around for a while! What I love about her items is they are full of quality.  Pretty designs and great textures.  This set definately stands up to that standard.  What you can purchase are two different items, the gorgeous bar and chair set and then the other item would be the alcohol trays.  All of which are great to start your summer with.

Next up is the amazing Cheeky Pea item which you can get at Uber! That is right Uber is now open and we manage to get in on the first day, because we had to have some of these items.  Now this very attractive Jacuzzi set comes with the shelter, the pool, chair swing and rug … all items are listed below.  This is is a great little set to have in the corner of your plot that gives off the little secret hidaway under some trees.  This set comes in both Adult and PG version, and we have the adult version set up.  The only difference is the poses in terms of the items you get.  This to me is a must have set.  If you like little escapes on your land then this is for you! ♥

Laying in the Sun with you …

Good Morning people! I hope you are all having a great day.  I am excited to be showing off a new item that will be in June’s round of the Arcade.  Sway Dench, the owner of Sway’s, will be partaking in this round and let me tell you this beach set is totally cute.  Its perfect for the beach and fun to play with.  As you can see I enlisted the boyfriend to lounge in the sun and be lazy with me, while he holds a pineapple drink close to him.  These items are from the set called On The Beach, there are 23 items to win and 5 rares.  After 25 plays there is a Prize to be won.  But because I am mean and stuff, you will have to play this machine and see what the Winner prize is … but it does match the set, and it is not a small prize, in fact the prize is just as good as the actual items you are playing for!

Rainy Day Corner

Its been a hot minute since I done some Home and Garden posts.  So I am gonna pick it back up with this amazing set from Sway’s.  I have been inspired from this because one of my favorite past times is reading books when its raining.  And when I seen this set,  I was in love instantly and reminded of what I was missing in my home and now its complete.

There is just something about curling up in a chair, with a hot cup of coffee or tea, and just sitting down and reading a good book.  Someone that is a fan of reading would definatly love this set.  Then again I think anyone would love this set.  You can place it in your home and decorate it up.  For me, this is my new rainy day reading corner and I am excited I get to show this to you.

Please see below for all information about this set. There are poses galore and this is a very low prim mesh furniture ♥

DaD – Tuscany Loft – Blog

Hii everyone! So I wanted to show you a cute skybox that I came across.  DaD Designs updated one of their skyboxes and I am really liking it.  Its 40 prims total.  And for a blogger this is great for many reasons.  It has many different areas as you will see in the pictures below.  So it gives many options to set up scenes.   But for the normal person that doesn’t blog this is a great low prim home in the sky where you will have no lag.  There are tons of room.  This is a BIG loft like box.  With open and bright (despite my windlight) space.  I think many people would find tons of use for this box.  The outside is textured too so that you are not looking at a big black box in the sky, so if you are taking pictures from the outside in from a window view (I have an example below) you will have texture to make it look realistic.

Head over to the main store of DaD Design, and check this skyhome out.  As well as some of her other boxes.  I have many of them and use quiet a few for my blogging scenes and needs.  While you are here make sure you check out her land homes too.  So if you don’t feel like living in the sky, and want an actual home on the ground level you will find many here too!
