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  ♥

She said “Yes!”

Originally written by Caleb… but commandeered by Livvy (green text)

As soon as 2018 came, I asked Livvy to marry me (finally). Being the clever boyfriend that I am, I made her think we’d be spending our New Year’s together very casually (but also cozily in each other’s arms), just enjoying each other’s company as the clock strikes 12. Being that we were online most of New Year’s Eve together, I literally had to set up my proposal scene right in front of her. Thank goodness for AFK time!  (Livvy here: Yes finally … I have been waiting for this slow day to finally come to a head and happen.  But only because I love him so much, and I feel like queen of the world when he is with me.  Mind you this is our 2nd time dating.  Time was not a good factor on our side and we have grown and learned so much to finally come back to this day and be so incredibly happy!) 

My plan was to have our own fireworks display on our land, which is something we normally do anyway like on the 4th of July. So, again, totally inconspicuous. But what she did not know was, I planned to have my proposal show up written like fireworks in the middle of the lit sky when I was setting off in world fireworks.  (Ohh this is story to be told!)

Throughout the day, I distracted her with shopping adventures and a total season of Stranger Things. I had never seen Stranger Things on Netflix yet and after the first few episodes, I loved it. So we binge watched the entire season that night lol, which worked great with my planned proposal because Livvy would not think anything of it. We were comfy in our sweats, cuddling in front of our camp fire, Netflixing and actually ‘chilling’ like normal people.  (Mind you his Christmas present to me was the gorgeous dress I am wearing below, and it threw me off that I was not to wear this for my Happy New Year fireworks! This made me very curious as to what was going to happen.  And watching all 8 episodes of Stranger Things was so totally romantical, because its our thing to watch shows together.  The fact he was so into this one just made me smile the whole time ♥)

When midnight came, I exclaimed, “HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY!” And she did the same as I proceeded to set off all the fireworks I had set up earlier. These were a mix between my MadPea Fireworks I had from 2016 as well as my {damani} – Fireworks deLuxe from back in 2014 lol. While we were smiling and celebrating our first New Year together, I turned off the transparency of my written proposal in the sky to let it finally be shown. The proposal said, “Will You Marry Me, Livvy?” in all cool sparklers effect to sort of blend in a bit with the fireworks.  (What he is leaving out here is that I didn’t actually seeee the message at first.  It was a blur in the sky, and I thought I broke my av for a moment so I zoomed in, thinking that I could totally fix it .. but that didn’t happen so I zoomed way out and it came clear what the message was and it confused me a bit because I was so not expecting this.  I hit the escape key and back to my av my camera flew and there was Caleb on one knee!!!!)

Will You Marry Me, Livvy | Mine & Yours

We have been on voice this entire time and when I heard her give notice to the image that was coming in for her, I got down on one knee, waiting for her to finally realize what was happening. I was proposing to her and I started saying the following to her on voice:

Livvy Fhang, I met you in 2014. Started dating you in 2015. We went our separate ways but found each other again in 2017. While together, you have made me an incredibly happy man with you back in my life. Ever since the day our paths crossed again, I’ve been smiling ever since… and incredibly in love with you. 2018 is here and I want us to start our new chapter together. I’ve been waiting for this day – this very day… the first day of the year, as I want to start the new year with you as mine in every way. Livvy… will you do me the honor of letting me be your husband? Will you marry me?

(He totally made a typo in that proposal … but I am not going to share it because it should be perfect the way he wanted … even if he wasn’t nervous, I still say he was, that voice that he loves to think was sooo confident I could hear the slight shake, but shhh, he was all man when asking me everything)

While I was telling her how much she has meant to me and how happy she has made me, I could hear the happiness in her silence as she listened. Yes, her silence has a voice – just like how you can hear someone smile… or choke back feelings of elation… or even tears of happiness. I was beaming the entire time and then as I finished my words, a resounding, “YES!” from her lips. My goodness how happy it made me to hear her say that… and how happy it made me to hear her happiness as well.  (I mean I waited a really long time to get this question from him.  Then again he is so slow with things, always wanting them perfect.  Though we were a bit backwards in how we did this.  Most of our plans were already planned minus the asking part.  Which most couples dont do until asked?  But we arent your average couple, we are us and we know how we tend to work, it was a matter of time before it happened anyways.  And he did it in the most perfect way.  I am just impatient and always will be. How he deals with me and still put a ring on it … amazes me! 

I love this woman so damn much (I love you too, baby). I can’t wait for so much many more moments and memories to share and create together. Happy New Year, indeed! We’re engaged! (And I am not letting go for one moment, you are stuck with me!)

Our New Years 2018

That time is approaching all I can think about is the clock striking midnight and the love of my life tipping me down and whispering just how much our year has been amazing.  Granted I don’t have to wait, because Caleb tells me this all time.  I swear with him I feel completely spoiled and loved.  We will be counting down the New Years together, and its going to be the best one yet!  10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 … KISS ME BABY!

So you might be wondering about my dress?  Well its a new creation by Apple May Designs.  You can find it at it at the main store.  There are several colors you can pick from! Lately, I been feeling the red colors.  Which for me is a rarity.  But I think for the New Year, I should try a new me and have a little fun with it.  I think that we all could try new things in our lives.  So make sure you head on over to the store and test out the demo, and see what you like.  SO many beautiful looks to be had with this. ♥

So .. what is your New Years Resolution?  Mine is to finally clean out my inventory and make it clean again for it to be messed up again over the upcoming year ♥

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didn’t see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked
Up in my bedroom fast asleep.
Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

Caleb and I wish you all a very Happy Holiday, no matter how you celebrate it please be safe and have fun!
