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 ♥

Bite Me …

Gosh, I do not even know where to start with this! Hi everyone ♥ I am overly happy with my purchases on this look.  I was shopping at Kustom9 and I seen this hair/hat set.  It only comes in a fatpack version and the price is amazing! I was like omgosh all this with such a low price?  You get a hair, a hat, and the HUDs that allow you to change the looks of the hair and hat.  It’s so fun.  I really bought this set because whelp, Bite Me was the the first thing I seen and really … that was my mood at the time.  Which made me so happy to make sure this was mine.

Now FaMESHed items, my gorgeous necklace, YES ITS CAE! don’t judge me … I am obsessed still and its layers and I want the layers.  All the layers.  This gorgeous set is roped, beaded, and Chained, with dangles, I mean for real who wouldn’t want that. Like all her other item you get a HUD, a very easy to use HUD that will let you change certain aspects of the necklace to make it your own.  You can create and control the style to match your outfits.  My Theme so far, is black, silver and white.  It is through all my outfit.   While at FaMESHed make sure you grab these boots I am wearing! Omgosh they are gorgeous ♥ These chunky boots are by Livalle, which is a store I have not been at for a really long time.  I seen these boots grace my flickr and I wanted them.  There are many colors you can pick from and there is a fatpack as well! For this picture, I turned off the cute bunny ears and nose to the boots, but there is that option if you want it.  These are material enabled so in your windlight will make them look absolutely amazing! ♥

Now to my dress! This is a sexy thing that you can find at UBER.  Would you be shocked to know its a JustBecause creation?! I know right.  I read somewhere, I am thinking it was facebook that this was a piece out of her normal creating zone.  Now let me tell you something, if this is what we can expect from sexy clothes, YES PLEASE! We need items like this from the oh so innocent of minds.  I adore her gowns and other creations, but this one is completely top notched…. and notched down the sides.  She even has built in panties so don’t worry about being overly showing in things.  Try the demo and trust me that will win you over.  So many choices to be had when wearing this dress.

So that is all I wanna talk about right now.  But please head over the events, the main stores of the items listed below and have fun, I am sure there is something for everyone there! ♥

The Struggle is Real …

I am going to say that this was the most challenging head I ever done.  This is the new Vista head Zoe, that if you all caught the deal .. you could have bought the head and the AO in the same pack.  Personally I went for the AO, but upon arriving to the main store, I was pleasantly surprised to see that you could get an amazing deal of the Zoe head and Zoe AO all in one pack, and if you are a loyal shopper and use the members card you could get a heck of a discount!  Being that I am a loyal member the head was basically a free item for me.  This does depend on your purchases and how many you make, so not all can claim this items as in a sense “free”.

Now this is why I called this post “The Struggle is Real” I have had this head for weeks and while it did come with a shape and a set of skins in the HUD, none of them really fit my taste, no matter how much I played with the shapes and skin combinations .. I just couldn’t find something that would make this head my style.  I am not going to bash this head because frankly there are some really awesome things about this head that I cannot find in other heads, even by beloved head that I am always wearing.   The issue is not in the head its in the lack of skin makers for this new head and I can be patient, which is what happened.  I been all over shopping for skins that were advertised for this head except one place …

UBER! I went to Uber with my lovey and while we were shopping I seen INSOL … omgosh how did I forget this store makes awesome beautiful skins?! So I seen instantly it was for Vista ZOE and I was more than elated and completely snatched up this demo.  When I placed this applier on the head and then added the shape, it was like the light went off in my head and I wanted this look for my ZOE head, and I got it.  There are so many good benefits in this designer.  The Shape was completely free, in the pack, its modifiable and copy! Then on that the body appliers are FREE in the main store.  You have everything you need to make your Vista head gorgeous, like shown in my picture, I did not tweak the head shape at all.  All I did was make the body shape more mine.  But the head is completely untouched.

Now to not be a Debbie downer on my new head, I want to tell you what it is that makes me love this head.  The HUD for the head is so user friendly, I am in awe of it.  The emotions on it are top notch that honestly, I make this my favorite HUD and emotions over all others as of date.  The smiles fit nicely on the head, it doesn’t look over done at all.  I like the fun quirky like auto replay emotions too.  There are SO many of them to choose from.  So while I say this is a Struggle … at the end of the day, I am completely happy with my purchase.  It takes a little time and patience to finally find what you are looking for.  So if you struggled like I did … take a deep breath, and just give it time.

All the informations is listed below all the items in my picture ♥

LAQ Major Update and More!!

This might be the most exciting thing ever! LAQ has released some thing absolutely BRILLIANT .. and it saves us all some money!! So not only are there TWO heads you can purchase that are brand new, but now all the heads past and present can now work off the same HUD.  Which means the cost of purchasing is now going DOWN! and when I say down, I mean you are now paying only 1500L for a head and the normal 990L for skin.  Which still undercuts the 5k that you would normally pay if you were to get the heads in the bundle.  To me this is a brilliant marketing strategy.

**IF YOU OWN A LAQ HEAD ALREADY DO NOT ~ I REPEAT ~ DO NOT BUY A HUD! YOUR HEADS ARE BEING UPDATED!!** If you own a LAQ head do not waste your money on the 3k HUD that you need for a one time purchase.  IF YOU ARE NEW to LAQ Heads … you will need to purchase the HUD.  Like I mentioned this is a ONE time purchase that you will need to make and ALL your heads will work on the same HUD, which to me is so cool.  It cuts down on inventory clutter and you are spending 2k+ less than you need to!  And if you catch them when she does a sale the saving are even more!! So brilliant. 

So you might be asking what has changed?
– Increase in number of layers: 5 blush/tattoo layers, 3 eyeshadow layers, 2 lip layers
– Rigging improvements: Smoother flexibility in making different shapes and animations. Ear area rerigged so that you can wear bento ears with no deformations.
– Higher resolution for the eyelashes uv map. Controls for upper and lower lashes length, * opacity * and textures. Old lash appliers will need to update to the new uv map.
– New animation HUD: Shorter expression sequences for more control over how you want your avatar to interact. Larger smiles. Working furniture animations. Lock neck to play animations without head movements. Eye movements control, including mocap eyes only.
– All shapes are now full permission, so that you can transfer or resell your own versions of it if you wish
– Omega will be preinstalled on all heads purchased up until 2018.04.12. Heads purchased after this date will need a LAQ system kit.
– All skins are also sold separately, so you can pick any of them to go with your head
– RGB display and save slots for color tints
– Right/left ears on/off
– Clear all layers button
– Eye fx on/off, create and opacity
– Mouth/tongue on/off, tint
– Larger hairbase layer area
– Upper/lower teeth on/off

My best suggestion is you check it out, whether you are new for LAQ or you are already an existing customer … you will be amazed at the new quality and how smooth each thing runs now.  And like I said previously said, the way to save some money is a big incentive for these heads now.  I find this to be a game changer for many people! ♥

Just A Stroll On The Beach …

Hello everyone! ♥

I decided to take a little break and take a walk along our beautiful beach! Sometimes the sounds of the water is just what I need to clear my head and relax.  I am a big time ocean lover and could spend the rest of my life around the waters and warm sand.  We had the pleasure of having our amazing daughter decorate the sim for us and give us exactly what we needed in our home together! You can find the information here if you would like to check it out: https://roots-of-royalty.wixsite.com/landscapeanddecor

Soooo Uber is open ♥ There are two different items I am wearing from there! The first one is from Cae, yes, I know I have an addictions …. don’t judge me, I wear what is good! If I didn’t tell you I am a fan of all the things that are layered.  Like for real every time I see a layer necklace I get all warm and fuzzy because I want them all! This choker and dangle look is now my new favorite in my collection.  YES I KNOW … I SAY That every time I get a new one … AGAIN don’t judge me.  I need to accessorize and I choose Cae.  Speaking of, change of venue for a moment … GLASSES are by Cae too I mean, I know I blogged a different frame in another post, but these are my big nerdy glasses of my dreams (to be honest they look like my RL one) but I adore a good pair of glasses ♥

Back to Uber … now I have this cute jump suit.  I am going to state the disclaimer here, before you buy, please try the demo.  BUT you must have the fat-pack to feature the duel color choices.  You cannot change the colors of the outfit if you do not have the fat-pack, that is the special feature.  Sooo if you are liking my look please make sure you are getting the fat-pack.  This beauty is brought to you by Apple May Designs.  This is a cute little outfit to prance around in.  It has cute little pockets on the sides that are a bit pronounced so that you can tell they are pockets its a very sweet design ♥

Beauties, make sure you check out the events and have some fun.  Dress up and be pretty ♥

A little Peep Show

This has been a interesting sort of month, it seems that myself and Caleb has taken to who can put out the sexiest picture! I love when he tells me that I inspire him to make pictures like he does.  My husband is all grown up now.  I found him when he was a closet Adult Rated person, he was all sorts of PG and now … he is growing up into … well lets not go there haha.

I got my idea for this picture off the items I am wearing, it started with the Vanilla Bae body suit! I seen this suit on the facebook when I was looking around for looks to grab some ideas and honestly, I was really wanting to do another naughty picture.  This suit is an open wide zip that just about lets it alllll hang out.  I got this from Lootbox, and there are several colors you can win and three different sorts of suits.  Closed, partial open, or what I am wearing.  There are other accessories you can win too, but I think I will leave that for you to find out by going to the event!

What better way to let it all hang out then to sport the new nipples by Session! These beauties fit nice to the skin and there are many options for you to choose from to get the colors of the nipple that you want.  There are two choices of piercing and you also have the option to not use them.  Personally I chose the rings.  The other option are barbells.  I really like the astetic that this looks gives me.  Even though the mesh breasts that are part of my body are nice, I really like the added look of more natural looking nipples.  If I am going to show off my body, I want to do it in the best lights ♥

Now onto my beloved Cae! She has knocked it out the park with a different accessory.  Cae is well known for her jewelry.  Now if you head on over to The Clique you can find the amazing sunglasses that I am wearing, but even better they are not just sunglasses, they are glasses too.  You have a choice.  BUT it gets even better.  At the end of my post you can check out the different styles.  There are 6 frame styles each turning into sunglasses if you want them to be. Now each of them are sold separate.  There is a HUD with each pair that will allow you to change the frame color so many pretty options to choose from!

Lastly is one of my new favorite staples in my inventory! TRUTH hair has collaborated with Lapoint Bastchild to make this gorgeous hair with a hat.  I really love it when a cap comes out with a hair made for it.  I always find it so hard to find hair for all the cute caps in the SL world.  So when I can find them like this, I become so happy! There are so many different colors of hair to pick from.  But I always love just getting the fatpack when it comes to Truth.  Now with the hat, there is a HUD that allows you to pick the design, and there are several normal colors too! So if you love wearing hats, this would definitely be one to make sure you grab up.  And its at UBER right now.

Okay I am done rambling, I think its time for you all to check out the credits and get the goodies, cause yea! They are amazing! You want them….go shopping and get sexier!

Do a little dance …

Get Down by KC and the Sunshine Band (1975)

Do a little dance
Make a little love
Get down tonight, whoo
Get down tonight, baby

Get down, get down

Get down, get down, get down
Get down, get down tonight, baby
Get down, get down, get down

 

I did my blog today with that song naturally coming into my head.  This 1975 classic was totally inspired by the dress I am wearing today! Just Because has placed out what I consider an iconic fashion piece from that time! For me this design is perfect.  NOW you are asking yourself, how do I get this dress.  Welp let me tell you .. UBER just opened and that is where you will find the dress.  But to let you know up front, in order to get the pattern I am wearing you MUST purchase the fatpack.  This and a few other designs are part of the pack which are other fashion staples in the decade! I love it.  I cant even right now with how much I really love this dress ♥

Also at UBER is the hair I am wearing! omgosh this hair is also what I considered 70’s inspired.  It fit perfect for the look I wanted to go with on the dress, I had several different looks in my head, but when I seen this on wall I was all like Austin Powers going YEA BABY Yeaaaaaa! … oh now I wanna watch that movie … gah!  ANYWAY back to the hair, this is a wonderful look and so many color packs to choose from.  I chosen the darker blond pack because I felt I got a little both worlds, natural looking blonds and the darker ones that border close to a brown color which makes me very happy.  AND you get roots! I love rooted hair.  Its one of the things I love most these days in the hairs.  This style does that perfectly.  So make sure you head over to UBER and get it ♥

Now, I wanna talk about the pose! I been on a kick lately when it comes to FOXCITY poses.  I been buying them up like crazy.  Now I believe this set was at N21 this round … BUT don’t hold me to that.  I am a bad blogger I know its okay you will get over it … or well you wont.  Either way, what is amazing about this set of poses is that natural breathing it has … yes this pose is animated, which is a lot like RL photography, your model doesn’t hold her breath till she is blue in the face while you get the perfect shot … Noooo she/he is breathing the whole time and you gotta get that great shot.  Welp, I did that in this.  I had fun watching my avi look like she was a bit more real when snapping her pic.  Now some of you might not like the moving aspect and that is okay she got you covered there are static poses in the pack too … so you get to enjoy not breathing … though why you wanna do that is beyond me .. I like fresh air and stuff ♥

Up Close and Personal

Hey Everyone! I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!! But now that the Fall holiday is over, Caleb and I are putting out the winter things.  Being that time flies so fast in SL we are building our winter wonderland. So the snow is coming out, and the Christmas stuff is coming forward.  And I have some really great little up close items for you to check out this post! Did you know that Tannenbaum has opened?! So excited for that! If you go there, you will find so many cute things to decorate your homes, land and even yourselves with! Some thing for everyone I say.  This is more on the accessorizing side of things for me this post.  Hence why I am up close and personal.  Festively speaking I am wearing so many great things.  Normally I tend to forget to blog my make-up … or maybe its because I dont wanna share … who knows with me … but this time I am really sharing because its IZZIES! and honestly, I really love her makeup … actually most of the makeup I wear is from her so if you see it on me and I don’t mention it … yea, its prolly Izzies, cause for me its the best ♥ Now The eye makeup and the lipstick set are both at Tannenbaum and they are shimmers and glitters which makes me happy.  Sparkle like the snow … yep I said that dreaded word … SNOW! Its gonna be falling soon … or maybe it has been falling on you already.  But its coming … WINTER IS COMING! (GoT reference for my nerds).

While at Tannenbaum make sure to get the jewels from CAE! Yes, I am blogging Cae again … uhm because I wanna and I stilll love her stuff.  And I will own it all.  But let me tell you about the cute Holiday items.  There is a cute Christmas Tree earring set.  I am in love with these. I believe there is necklace in the set too, but I didn’t wear that one because I wanted this Reindeer one on my neck right away!  Its a cute little circle charm with a Rudolf cut right in the middle.  I say that because my gem is red! And its the nose of the reindeer.  But yea, this is so cute and I have a ton more in the Tannenbaum collection of hers to show next.  So keep a look out for that.

Okay so UBER opened.  BUT I am going to tell you that I didn’t get this hair from UBER … because I tested my skills at one of the many perks of the VIP TRUTH group.  I tried my hand at telling a little story to the Group Moderator of the group.  Once in a while they ask a question and you submit your answer.  This time it was WHAT WOULD YOU DO (IN WORLD) WITH UNLIMITED LINDENS? and I won the prize, which is the new release in the fat pack.  I really enjoy this hair because it can be worn in several different ways, thanks to the new Style HUD that was created.  Also on that with all the endless color options its perfect.  Its a great holiday if you are looking for a dressy casual look! If you are looking for this hair though, its at UBER!

Now my last item but one of my favorites too! Is my sweater ♥ Just Because has placed out another adorable item! This sweater is perfect for the holidays too.  I wore this in the orange for our family Thanksgiving dinner.  But being I am blogging the upcoming holidays the green was a perfect fit for the background look I was going for. That and I think its a beautiful color.  Like always I love the little details from the way the sweater looks realistic and the way the buttons are placed.  It shows the care that the designer has placed into their item and that makes me want it so much more.  While I do blog a lot of Just Because .. its because I know that she places lots of care into her items.  So I am proud to show this brand and other brands like hers! ♥

Coffee Please …

Hi Everyone!

Slowly over the past month I have been working on my little Cafe that Caleb so sweetly helped me win the missing peices.  We played several machines to win these items.  BUT that isn’t what this post is about, I will be making a cafe post soon! ♥ I am L O V I N G that technique that I posted about in my last blog on how to make your background blurry while your avi looks pristine.  I cannot believe I was doing this all wrong all the long.  I cant even right now.  This is my second take.  But if you need a reminder and don’t want to go looking back … here CLICK THIS

Sooo my look! This is a fall look for me. Sweaters, skirts, and boots oh my! Some of this I had in my inventory already and isn’t new so you can get them at the main stores. But my skirt is brand new from UBER its by Just Because.  This is a beautiful piece to play with.  What I adore the most is that it comes in two different types, first there is a tight fit for those OVER the hem looks, and then you have the loose fit that will allow you to wear tucked in type tops and body suits.  There are many looks you can create with this skirt, and what I love is boots are perfect to wear underneath them.

I had this sweater a long time now, I really love the off the shoulder look, its pink and rawr.  What I really like about this top is that the sweater looks like a natural sweater.  What I really dislike about SL sweaters for the most part is that the stitching looks big. I hope I am saying that right.  But this one looks normal.

Gacha Garden will be opening soon.  And Cae done it again .. this bracelet is catered to the fall.  Leaves and acorns all over.  I am linking a picture of what you can get down below.  But this is so pretty! I mean you can wear the charms you want, or not.  There are many colors to choose from when you are wearing the gem versions, also there is the option to change the color of the metals, there are three all together.

So, that is all there is for now.  Check out the creds below to find out more information. ♥ Have fun shopping.

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!! ♥
