New Years Eve ~ Last post for 2014

NYblog2014
Happy New Year to all

What an amazing year this truly has been ~ yes had some bumps in my travels throughout 2014 but still it has ended on such a positive note that I cannot reflect back and smile ….

Met and made some great new friends ~ got a great opportunity job-wise to work with an amazing person and bestest friend ~ thank you so much Kay Weston for letting me work as your Store Manager and getting to know you better ~ you know how much I wubs ya and love all the craziness that I have experienced with you ~ never would trade a moment ~ cannot wait to see what 2015 brings ~  hugzz

Still having to thank Brutus for putting up with my at times moodiness and crankiness ~ thank you for being there for me to rant and rave …. hugzz

Thank you also has to go to Kodaijin Starfall for becoming a mentor to me and taking time and patience to teach me so much more with the editing process of my pics ~ his amazing skills and limitlessness patience brought my skills up to a much needed higher level ~ cannot thank him enough  ~  hugzz

Along the way I also became a member of a dance troop who the director, choreographer, producer Ilyas Almir introduced me to another new world inside SL – getting to meet all the other dancers who some have become good friends we put on 3 amazing dance concerts ~ what proud moments to be a part of that ~ thank you Ily for your patience also ~ hugzz

As the year starting edging towards the end another big surprise came to me in the way of Stenmystique   ~ he did the unexpected ~ got me to partner and become his wife ~ that in itself is awesome ~ truly was not looking for a partner at all but this man who I had only spoke hello to swept me off my feet and grabbed my heart 100% ~ he showed me through his actions ~ rushing home to attend not one but two of my dance concerts ~ spending a holiday with me just so I would not be alone because he promised he would ~ so thank you to my sexy hubby for making the year end on such a wonderful note ~ excited to start 2015 with you by my side  hugzz and kisses to you ….

And to all the rest of my followers and friends I just want to take this time to personally thank you for being a part of my 2014 and wishing each of you that next year will be even happier …… hugzz

As I have been rushing around getting my SL Christmas shopping done and also rehearsing for our final dance concert which takes place today my sincerest apologies that I have not been blogging all the cool outfits that I have been finding on the Advent Calendars ~ and this sweater is cute and wearable for the upcoming holiday season ~

KittySweater
Tres Beau Kitty Sweater

Another blogger was kind enough to share with me the place to go and grab this adorable sweater ~ plenty of time left to go and snag this one off the Advent Tree at Tres Beau ~ also the owner of Tres Beau is so kind that you are able to also get all the presents up to present day as well ~ especially if you are the owner of these kitty cats there are gifts for them as well ~ its all explained in the notecard with the gifts ~

Tis the season at least it should be where this quote from “A Christmas Carol” comes to mind ~ “It is required of every man,” the Ghost [of Marley] returned, “that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow-men, and travel far and wide; and if that spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death.” I would add that everyone should carry this spirit no matter what religion they practice this good will towards everyone and not just this holiday but everyday ~

Please hang around for more goodies forthcoming from various holiday givings ~ hugzz

Play that funky music Reg….

I was excited about traveling to “The Arcade” especially seeing the preview on what was being offered ~ broke open the piggy bank and grabbed my Lindens with fingers crossed and headed over ~ screeeeeeech I came to a complete stop because its first day and that means “full” wait your turn ~ damn now I had to keep trying and trying and trying ~ felt like getting is it worth it to wait or not ~ hell no!!! But someone said there is this hud you can get off MP to alleviate you trying and trying ~ you let the hud do all the work ~ Hud is called “Letmein” sold on MP https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Cheshiresoft-LetMeIn-HUD/5750157 for 150L ~ follow instructions and it is easy peasy.

Finally I made it in and just happened while I was at lunch and decided to glance over to see ~ yesssss…. jumping up into my seat and seeing a crowd of people ~ putting on a brave face I knew exactly what I was looking for *The Butler* There are 13 different ones and my goal which is to collect all them *giggling* Reginald I have aptly named him cuz he just looks like a Reginald and you gotta say it with that upper crust Brit accent you see in the movies but Reg for short.  He is for me quite the refined gentleman hoisting that huge player around ~ he has not come into the 21st century yet but am I complaining nope ~ he does his duty without griping or whining so him and his brothers are more than welcome to stick around ~ the other goldmine that I came across is the hair from Mina ~ oooh what a goodie ~ comes with a hud and different shades like the one I am showing off is light red ~ simply gorgeous but…..will be going back to try and get my standard blonde color ~ Now the outfit is another find but one that I just was able to sneak in from Hilly ~ she still held over a Black Friday sale and was 50L ~ yesh ~was that a bargain or what……omg nice detail and came with the boots as well ~ jumped for joy I tell you when I saw the outfit ~ the shoes are simply gorgeous as well and will go well with other things ~ just look at them

Arcade1aI just love the bold brassy zippers and not just one but two ~ these are made for Slink high feet ~ really love the design and sets off the outfit ~

So there you are my first venture back to The Arcade and was well worth it seeing I do have some other goodies to show you *giggling ~ stay tuned please and look below for all the details ….hugzz
