A Little of This & That….

Hello everyone ~ its me and first up I do have to make a public apology to my Blog Partner and Bestie *Dena*who I made a huge error and omitted a fact when I was editing our blog ~  sadly Dena pointed that out to me and for me I never felt worse ~ yes am flawed and make mistakes and will be the first to stand up to that and say am sorry plus I also said I would a point in our blog as well ~ on Dena’s last post at Calas she nearly collided with a friendly man who was also taken by how amazing the place looked called Odin Allseer we chatted about how the sims looked at different times of the year and he said he will look forward to seeing the Autumnal colors when they come round again.  For those that have never gone to Calas it is and has been my favorite place to  visit ~ Truck and Tymus the owners/creators do such an amazing job with landscaping, making sure each Sim is just so and each season is met with such splendor ~ their Halloween & Christmas have truly been magical ~ need a ride to see here is your TAXI…Again my apologies to Dena for omitting that ~ funny we are like two peas in a pod and most of the time either we practically are close sisters or twins from another mother ~ here is our latest pic and how we have changed over the past couple years ~

Closet2a
Dena on the left & Me on the right

Smiles as I look at that pic of us ~ and yes we are always buying the same hair, clothes and shoes ~ guess that is what makes us besties we have a lot in common ~ and love her lotz…I searched around in my closet and decided since it is 2 weeks till the next Monthly Madness, which excites me ~ do you know what Midnight Monthly Madness is?  It happens the 2nd weekend of every month ~ where invisibility really is a good thing ~ but instead of taking of all your time cuz I wanna show you the outfit please click HERE to learn more about it ~ I absolutely love love it ~ little crazy but so much fun even if I wake myself up very early to get the first round of goodies I would not miss it for the world ~

Closet2b
Pants & Top from Midnight Monthly Madness by Meva

The outfit and shoes were from this months *MM* by Designer Meva ~ at the strike of Midnight SL time on the 2nd Friday of each month generous designers set out a gift and they do it again at noon on Saturday ~ plus you do have that last chance if you missed out to get any of the gifts on Sunday for a very very low price ~ and look at that outfit from Meva ~ it is simply gorgeous ~ stylish & trendy ~ usually there are between 10 and 15 designers, which some are very well known but all really put their heart and soul into giving their best items ~ now you might be wondering what is the catch ~ is it free *nodding emphatically* YES but there is a set limit of 1500, which might seem a lot but OMG I found that limits goes very very quickly with some of the items like those gorgeous shoes from Essenz or outfits by Wicca or Salt & Pepper just to name a few ~ I like the concept and am absolutely love the gifts as the first of the month I get giddy knowing the time gets closer ~ this past month we even had Warm Animations join in ~

Closet2c
Heels by Phedora

Oh my yes we have different shoe designers as you can see those gorgeous heels by Phedora that you know with all the females is a huge huge hit ~ with over 6,000 members in the group gets super crowded and at times very laggy hence being invisible xcept your name tag helps immensely and each month more and more people are joining the group but instead of getting uber crazy I have to compliment everyone on how easy peasy last month went ~ was zip in touch the board and tp to the next stop ~ oh yes you get a hud each month with all the designers and it whisks you away to each store ~ so yes are you wondering if you have to join a group the answer is YES ~ does the group cost ~ NO ~ do you have to get each gift ~ that is a NO also but why wouldn’t you *laughing* first I will say rolling my eyes that you can’t please everyone ~ there are going to be grumpy grouchy ones that don’t like this and that ~ shrugging my shoulders ~ that is fine BUT keep your words to yourself in that aspect ~ designers work diligently coming up with all these FREE gifts and most never get a thank you for it only grumblings cuz the color isn’t right or the size was only for this and that ~ BUT right here and right now I want to take time to acknowledge how much I appreciate each gift and to say thank you even to the ones that organize this its amazing and please I hope this continues for a long time…

Closet2d
Close up

Oh yes did you notice that I am wearing lip gloss *giggling* ok I know big deal but it actually was for me hehehe ~ bestie tried to explain and I watched the Video explaining how to and after the 4th time it was like YIPPEE I get it ~ I get it!!!!  The gloss came from Pink Fuel from the February Powder Pack subscription that is not free but for me since it is geared towards Catwa head owners I love it ~ yes there are always going to be those that have their own comments towards these various subscriptions again like anything we all cannot please everyone ~ back to the Midnight Monthly the name of the group in case you want to join is Monthly Midnight Madness ~ you can see there are over 6K members ~ the April event will start on Midnight April 8th for the first and then again at Noon all on SLT ~ if you see my name tag *giggling* say hi ~ till next time be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

Spring is Springing…

Hello All,
Dena here again *waving at you all* with another outfit from my Closet that is just right for this time of year, our clocks this side of the pond (I am in the UK) having just gone forward to mark the start of Spring here and the night will get lighter and more daylight hours to be had so thought it was time to start looking for my Spring clothes.. this outfit is from Bens Beauty & Boutique just fits the bill.. from bright color of its roll neck sweater to the flowers bursting to life on the jeans…Just right for that walk in the wood to see the first flush of bluebells and crocus awakening from the winter sleep…birds feeding their new hatchlings or just to wander around to see things starting to wake up and brighten our world once again..and where to wander around but a lovely place called Calas, which is Starr’s favorite place that the owners make sure all matches with the seasons and lots of places to explore..today am walking around Misty Mountains ~

Calas1
Calas TP Board 

You can see by the above pic there a lot of locations but this one appealed to me to really show off Spring and this great outfit by Ben’s Boutique ~ first let me show you the outfit as a whole then break it down for you ~

Calas1a
Izmir by Bens Boutique

What you see hair, glasses, sweater, jeans, clutch and boots *not shown* are included ~ can you believe that…seriously everything is included at a promo price that is a steal ~ the hair has a wonderful hud included too that you can change not only the main color but the wisps as I have here for you to see..with so many options from blond to black to choose from I am using the dark blond with light blond wisps as I also love the Glasses too with half rims to show off a lovely pair of eyes… think they give me a studious look don’t you agree…The sweater is a roll neck one you can snuggle into if you need it and long sleeves to cover your fingers if need be too, with cable detailing to the front to give this sweater a fabulous look and is cropped for those of you out there that like to show of that toned tummy area or maybe you have a belly ring you might like to show…..These jeans fit right in with my Spring theme too as they have flower motifs on both pockets, which helped me blend in real well with all the fresh flowers and they fit my Maitreya perfect…..

Calas2
Flowers on the pockets ~ 

With a very skinny leg that fits tight to the ankle which gives me the opportunity to show off the stiletto heel to these boots that almost complete this outfit with a high front thin heel and ankle strap too you will not loose these wonderful boots as you can see below

Calas3.jpg
Boots also included

Lastly that is for me an added plus is this smart clutch that you can see me carrying ~ really just puts the final touches on the entire look ~ smart, chic and this you can choose to carry or not ~

Calas2a
Clutch ~ smart & chic

Worried about sizes well don’t be if you want the demo it is available at the Inworld Store ~ again with this price you get a lot for your money ~ but who knows how long this price will be so don’t delay ~ a cute outfit that fits in for those not so warm spring days and chilly nights ~ enjoy and be safe ~ till next time this is Dena waving “CYA” to all ♥

Let Me Tell You…

The kindness of strangers still exists in Second Life ~ yes let me tell you when I was having a MAJOR issue and trying to find answers in the Catwa Head Friends group which FYI for all of you that have purchased from Catwa you absolutely NEED to join this group ~ there are not enough adjectives to describe this group besides using fantastic, amazing, supportive just to use a few ~ even those that are like me will pipe up with helpful hints and tips ~ and in this group I met one that I know would rather I not mention her name but will call her my “Angel” ~ this person took time out one from not feeling well and it was getting late to help me first with the mess of myself that who knows how I created LOL..but she solved and then gave me some much needed advice along with taking me here and there showing me “brow shops” who knew there is a store just for brows…WOW and did you know you could edit them ~ well this Bento/Mesh head noob and yes I will admit that I am had some great lessons on what you can and should do ~  first wear those Catwa brows that come in the folder…make a copy so if you mess up you can start again and again and head over to Lurid either on Marketplace or Inworld Store ~ try the demo’s and you might just discover some brows that you love as they are reasonably priced…With the late hour I bid goodnight to her and thanked her tremendously for all her help..she truly is an Angel…she will know this is all about her *giggling* Ok next from another member of the Catwa group she referred me to my newest sponsor ~ G Star because she liked my blog and thought perhaps we would be a good fit ~ not a new designer but up and coming and for the moment is located on Marketplace ~ will be showing off 2 of his latest outfits that are 100% mesh ~

This gorgeous Red satin jumpsuit really shows off my newest look & shape ~ I am sure hubby will appreciate how sexy and form fitting it is ~ really makes my gorgeous locks just stand out ~ from casual day wear to strutting yourself at your local night club you will not be placed in a corner ~ all eyes will be on you from the moment you walk in the door ~ a very versatile outfit from day or evening ~ worried about the fit the owner has provided a DEMO for you to try on ~ then just choose the color you want ~ let me show you a closeup of the detail on the waist if you truly need another incentive

Blog1b
Close up of Waist

I really like the detailing with the change of fabric in the waist to the silver doodads ~giving that xtra little pizzazz not that it needed any…Lastly this very cute hooded mini dress ~

Bloc1d
Simone ~ by G Star

Still chilly but I just had to rush over to New Brighton beach and at least stick my tootsies in the sand ~ oh the ocean was calling but as much as I love love the ocean it is still way too early for even my toes to go in ~ this dress is what I would classify a micro mini just long enough to cover up your essentials but for those modest ones you might want to wear a thong or even a nice pair of leggings ~ OR like hubby would say NAAAAAAA leave it as is cuz those that know he truly is a typical pervy male but I love him as he spoils me like a princess…both outfits truly fit my Maitreya body like a silk glove but again the owner has been gracious enough to provide a DEMO for you…Again 100% mesh and you can see both outfits will fit a variety of bodies ~ Am super xcited to see what Eaglehart Wasp owner/creator of G Star creates next ~ please take time to visit his Marketplace and he did whisper in my ear that there will be an inworld store soon ~ yippeee ~ am honored to be chosen as one of his bloggers ~ as I said in the beginning kindness still exists in the hearts of strangers and I appreciate the efforts from two of the nicest strangers I have met ~ my upmost appreciation and thanks to both of you ~ hugzz to both of you ~ and to my latest sponsor I also say thank you for giving me the honor ~ for my readers, my followers and supporters you always know how much I am grateful that you take time out of your busy RL to read, follow and send me such nice comments ~ thank you ~ till next time please be good to yourselves ~

Welcome to WildCat Country…

Yes welcome to Wildcat Country ~ where Rock meets Country…It has been awhile but am back *waving hello to everyone* with more outfits from my inventory that are available and I will be giving you links so you can either go to the inworld store or look on Marketplace~ also will be showing off my outfits at various great places like this one ~ it is one of SL Country music club called Wildcats Country ~ a blend of country with that Southern Rock that will just make you wanna come and dance here ~ oooh yes and when you land be very very careful as the club name says there are REAL wild cats roaming around ~ maybe no petting them ~ just be forewarned as it seems they love to play by chasing you as you land as it scared me I can tell you lol…..

Rock1a
Where Southern Rock meets Country 

When you land you will notice was how the land is set up with plenty of photo ops for those that are into SL photography, which you might want to take a walk around before going into the club area ~ then step inside to the club itself where you will hear some great music and meet a lot of friendly people… you will see they have an Events board that has some Live singers coming… my outfit that am showing you is perfect for clubbing and will have you fit right in ~this gorgeous vest and skirt is from Sweet Tea...with color huds for each separate piece for you to mix and match….

Rock1
Columbia Top & Skirt by Sweet Tea

Do you see the detail on the top from the eyelets, zipper and overall texture ~ plus look at the upturned collar ~ really giving this a great uber look ~ since they are both separate you will be able to get a lot of wear by mixing and matching ~ black is so universal but with the 2 fantastic huds that comes with it you will have enough choices of colors and textures to make this a keeper for your inventory as well having the boots also included with their own Hud sold me on this ~

Rock3
Included with outfit 

So there you have a great outfit, a place to go and show it off as well as the links to take you there ~ Enjoy and stick around as Starr and myself have more outfits, more places and who knows what else we will get into…till next time be safe ♥

Here is the link for Marketplace, which will show you the different textures on each of the huds that are included ~ don’t limit yourself take this TAXI to the Sweet Tea’s Inworld Store and look around because they do have such cute stuff ~ to get to the club scroll back up as I pasted the link there ~ below are all my credits

Looking for some Hot Stuff…

When I first saw them this song just stuck in my mind…

Lookin’ for some hot stuff baby this evenin’
I need some hot stuff baby tonight
I want some hot stuff baby this evenin’
Gotta have some hot stuff
Gotta have some love tonight
I need hot stuff
I want some hot stuff
I need some hot stuff

Now just who am I talking about well let me tell you ~ why it is the one and the only The Hot Knights who are an all male erotic striptease group. Consisting of 6 songs in a 30 minute show, the cast present an elaborate mix of mesmerizing choreography, sexy stage design and interesting special effects. Full Nudity is part of the production ~  they are known as the Hot Knights ~ once you see them you will know why they call themselves “Hot Knights~ I will say their performance is strictly adult as they tell you upfront its the FULL Monty and not for the prudish or faint of heart ~ but done with panache, little bit of naughtiness and a whole lot of fun ~ the music will have you dancing in your seats ~ the dancers will have you staring, drooling and well you get my drift ~ there are some tasty males that are definitely eye candy along with those great dance moves that will make everyone envious ~ now where can you see all these fabulous MEN ~ come this Friday March 24 they will be appearing at Romanum where “Men can love men and be men” ~

So for a little peek at what you might be seeing here are a couple of pics that I call teasers…

HotK1a

Smoking Hot Knights 

Oh no won’t show you any more you just will have to make sure that you get there in plenty of time to grab a seat because Guys you do not want to miss this performance…they are the newest sensation in Second Life and I know they will be generating a lot of heat on stage…I have seen this show once and again will be in the audience again as I love their performance ~ from the music, the dancing it will be a great time for all ~ make note the time to see The Hot Knights will start promptly at 2pm SLT ~ guys make sure you get there early as I am advised a lot of Gladiators will be in attendance and seating is limited…Can’t wait…And before I leave I like to thank Emperor Galtier and Red Hykova for making me aware of this fabulous event…hugzz to all ~ Peace out ♥

In My Closet

Have not spent a lot of time in my closet lately and this was such a cute outfit that I put together just had to show it off to you ~ very fun and flirty and using little this and that ~ dontcha love when something just comes together ~ that is what I love about SL that really there are no rules when it comes to Fashion that you have to follow…especially because the weather can always be gorgeous with no bad hair days, your makeup looks flawless and stores never clothes OMG and most everything you put on just fits and looks fabulous unlike RL that you might be like me and struggle with the additional 10 pounds and do whatever to cover it up ~ SL I can show off my flat tummy, perky boobs and my gorgeous lips…for our Closet Series we will make sure the outfit that we put together will have either the Marketplace link to the exact item or I will travel to the Inworld store to see if its available for you ~ that is a big thing when reading blogs that I see an item and its is not available after much searching…if its not I will be diligent in saying so ~ let me show you the back of this first * giggling * just cuz I love the pockets…

Closet1aa
Back view of this cute flirty mini

Check out those pockets ~ both Alia top and Keisha skirt are by Hilly Haalan and she always provides a great hud that for me gives you lotz of bang for your Lindens ~ both items are no exceptions and I love the choices ~ The Keisha Skirt comes with 20 different textures and the top 40 ~ Both are on Marketplace and priced very reasonably ~please check credits for the links …

Closet1bb
Pumps with Socks by Hilly

Guess I should of just said the entire outfit was by Hilly LOL because so are these gorgeous pumps with socks ~ and yes also found on Marketplace with another great hud of 30 sock textures along with 30 different shoe colors…with the overall look the shoes and over the knee socks just added that special touch…

Closet1a
Outfit by Hilly ~ all separates

Can you see the pigeon is giving his approval to this fun and flirty look ~plus you can see how cute, flirty and sexy the Alia top is ~ really compliments the mini and since they are separates you can mix/match all items ~  I wanted to find that perfect necklace so I rooted and found a group gift from Poison to wear that just finished this outfit perfectly…

Closet1c
Group Gift by Poison

From the pic above you can see how this necklace just adds that final touch along with seeing the gems from the Alia top that I mentioned before the Hud for this will give you choices as well……Really have to say that this location where I shot all the pics at has so many great photo ops or if you are just wanting to wander around looking at the shops or just the setting it is a super great place ~ the veggies are superb and truly fresh ~ so take a moment and enjoy the outdoor cafe by yourself or with someone special…Till next time be good to yourself ~ Peace out

Wash done by Hand …

Hey everyone ~ it is soo great to have my bestie Dena with me helping with this blog…been a long time since we both did a dual post but we came up with a new series called “Housewives” that will be something fun and maybe give you some idea’s for pics or blogs or just enjoy reading…ever think back to time before all those fancy machines that made housework not a chore ~ dating myself I do remember visiting my Mom’s parents in the mountains of North Carolina where their washing machine was a wringer type cuz this was all they could afford ~ if I remember correctly my parents did gift them new ones but sat in boxes and never used ~ some just were comfortable using what they knew…can you imagine living in a cabin having to drag your laundry to the nearby pond or probably a lake by a waterfall ~ first lugging a basket of heavy duty clothes, a washboard and a bar of lard soap ~ if you were lucky a clothes line was close by otherwise you had to lug all those clothes back to the cabin to string them up there ~ exhausting huh ~ we thought so as you can see by the pic trying to recreate days gone by ~ with some xceptions like these huge rollers ~ might of not been possible ~ our hair could of been wrapped up in some bandanna instead…this was a fun project and most everything prop wise we found on Marketplace ~ check credits and I am trying to do a lot better in making sure to give all credits…

Blog2aa
Wash Day 

See we are completely exhausted I hope hubby does appreciate how we slaved over these old fashioned wash boards and tubs…even did sheets and towels…next project might be ironing YUCK ~ does anyone iron in RL anymore….even as a teen I would detest buying clothes that needed to be ironed ~ now back to SL as everything looks pristine brand new or whatever you want ~ Dena and I both subscribed to Powder Pack and I treated myself to some other subscriptions that we will be showing off tomorrow for you ~ till then be good to yourself ~ peace out ♥

Into the Sun…

Its middle March and looking out my window am seeing more snow ~ where my RL exists we have had 13 inches of snow and add 2 more inches from last nite~ I love snow during the winter and only if I do not have to shovel as I rather now pay someone with a snowblower to clean off driveway and sidewalk ~ yes its not being lazy it is knowing that my body is growing older and need to pamper it…my story sooo ~ on next thing is I am a profile reader and love looking at the profile pics ~ for me maybe its my upbringing or just being old school but I see profile that are just nasty with giving the ultimate finger or blazed across “F*ck You* ~ shaking my head and feeling sad but hey it is SL and I should not judge but I do ~ shame on me you are probably saying but I admit it ~ from some of the nicknames that are so blatant in sexuality to what is on their main profile am not stunned but saddened that they feel so less of themselves…and that is that on that subject so now onto this stunning dress that is part of Designer Showcase this month ~ the designer is not new just a change of name and I do have to thank my sweet sexy hubby for helping me out on where to show off this very classy dress ~ putting on my uber model look with hair from Shi this dress is one to impress ~

Mar18b
Rancho Mirage by Julz

First I noticed the high ruffled collar that I used to see on a lot of high fashion years ago ~ even thinking that Audrey Hepburn posed in a dress with one ~ the ruffle was carried down and across and I absolutely love the bow ~ if that was not enough to impress me the flower on the lapel did it ~ the fit for my Maitreya body was pure perfection and over all this just screams to me uber elegant ~ matching it with another Designer Showcase designer Moondance that has the options to change textures to just set off this outfit…Julz has given you 5 different color options to choose from and of course I chose purple to show you…let me give you a closer look

Blog10b
Into the Sun 

As I face the sun you can see the gorgeous ruffle and the flower on the lapel along with how Moondance jewelry gives it that added touch…this was shot on location of this fantastic Tea House that it was late but going back later to explore ~ landmark will be in the credits ~ and speaking of places here is your TAXI to get you to Designer Showcase so you can see the outfit and the jewelry up close…it is always so nice and very appreciated when I hear someone enjoys my blog ~ thank you to each of you for reading ~ and the comments and feedback is always welcomed ~ to my hubby big big kisses for the suggestion…please stick around as I will be showing off some stuff from different subscriptions ~ be good to yourselves ~ Peace Out ♥

Simply Elegant…

I love SL for all the opportunities it gives you ~ dressing up in a long elegant gown is something I did not do a lot in RL ~ just was not there but SL gives me that feeling of wearing my hair up, accessorizing with gorgeous jewelry and looking like a high fashion model ~ this month at Designer Showcase D.E. Boutique has 2 items as I showed you in an earlier post the casual look now I get to show you the elegant look with their gown “Kate”..

Blog9c
“Kate” by D.E. Boutique

This gown is elegantly classic ~ this gown will be simply timeless ~ all you need is to choose which color as you will have 10 options ~ as I accessorized this with the jewelry set from Moondance ~ and of course I had to wear my favorite up do by D!va to give the finished look ~ gorgeous right…

Blog9d
Bellisima Jewelry Set

Bellisima Jewelry includes 20 pearl/10 gem/9 metal options via HUD and will include necklace, 2 pairs of earrings, 2 bracelets, and 2 rings ~ the added pairs as you will see are different in size ~ I absolutely love being able to change everything on the pieces from the metals, the gems, and the pearl colors ~ making this a keeper in my inventory forever…

Blog9dd
Back View of Dress & Hair

I am showing the back of the dress because one of the choices is 2 tone ~ white/black is this combination ~ plus D!va always ramps up the hair with little bows & ribbons that you can also change to match your gown or whatever…she is my favorite for formal looks and the little wisps that you see are hers and not me adding anything…

Its now starting on the downside of the month just a little reminder that all the outfits and clothes have shown you will be at Designer Showcase till the end of March ~ here is that TAXI so you can grab up these goodies ~ for those that worry about fit make sure you try on the demo…and to all my readers & followers I so appreciate the time you do take to read, comment and follow my blog ~ I do have some goodies from various prepaid boxes that I will be showing you a little on my next blog…till then be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

Taking a trip….

Sometimes you just need that short mental vacation for your mind as I wave hello to everyone ~ again I must say how thankful for my bestie Dena who so many times just being there and giving me confidence when my brain and ideas falter ~ you have a great outfit, places to show it off but for me it is not just about taking a pic ~ at least that is not what my blog is about ~ yes am very chatty and try to introduce some helpful tips at times or a little humor or even yes a rant or two ~ but I am not one just to show you me dressed up, give credits and that is it ~ what I do want my readers to know is if I am wearing something and blog about it ~ for me I endorse it, either like it or absolutely love it ~ but if I try it on and it is just not me no matter what color you will not see me wearing it ~ am picky for a reason I want you my readers to believe and trust in me ~ that I have come to realize when looking and reader other blogs in SL ~ I trust their advice ~ one from experience they have as well as knowing what they are talking about and showing me…for me I look at different blogs and the ones that I love show me, teach me and advise me on various items ~ am not going to mention names to be fair but there are ones that it is just images and that is fine also but I like someone to give me advice as to which mesh head is good and the reasons behind it or if I show you this outfit am wearing and tell you nothing else you may or may not like it ~ but if I say these pants fit my Maitreya perfectly aren’t you more inclined to give them a try…ok nuff yapping from me ~ speaking of clothes these are from Designer Showcase and are out of the I.M. Collection ~ Brenna Top & Jeans ~ as you will see below ~

Brenna Top & Brenna Jeans by I.M. Collection

The top and jeans are sold separately but such reasonable price for both pieces that I would not hesitate to pick up couple different color tops ~ colors are rich in texture and all you have to do is decide which one is for you ~ this is not a simple long sleeve cropped top but the  back really heats the look up for you …

Really nice criss cross that expands on the way down ~ the jeans have a great cuff and belt look ~ both are 100% mesh and as you can see give my bum a nice look ~ cannot forget to mention the shoes that are also being featured at D.S. this month ~ they are from Ghee that I mentioned in an earlier post ~ just love when the designer creates a hud to give us more bang for our Lindens…this is such a great casual look and excuse me just dropping my suitcases on the floor since I just got home and wanted to show you this ~ its mid month and Designer Showcase does run to the end of the month ~ yes I know you need my ever reliable TAXI to take you to look, try on demo’s and hey remember to wander outside and look at some of the latest build….lotz more to show you from Designer Showcase plus some other goodies ~ till next time PEACE out….♥
