I choose…

Yes I choose ~ not someone else through bullying, intimidation or whatever other measures someone goes to ~ I choose to be happy, I choose not to let those that feel the need to send out statements of intimidation and yes I chose to go to Backdrop City and look it over, explore and yes I chose to take a pic there as well ~ this kind kind women who owns this Sim asks nothing in return even though I suggested she set up a tiny donation box not to force anyone to put monies in it only make a sign stating if you want to but she said she rather not on the principal it might make people feel they have to ~ she is not a blogger yet the amount of money she spends monthly on sim fees, all those backdrops that are not given to her even though I did offer some that I had dupes from gacha’s she also turned that down because she wanted to cause no more drama but she thanked me kindly ~ is she looking for handouts or throwing temper tantrums or sending out intimidation notecards stating “you better not support those type of sims” shaking my head at that last one  ~ nope she is just someone out of the goodness of her heart sharing with what possibly would sit in her inventory just like all the ones I have that are taking up space and I applaud her…so yes I choose where I want to go in SL, choose what poses or props I like to use and I choose to be happy with it…as you can see below the image turned out nicely…btw thank you all for the kind comments on my last blog post ~ means more than you can imagine ~ hugzz till next time ♥♥

Why…

Yes that is my question and will possibly answer it with my own thoughts ~ have been in SL for over 9 years ~ seen a lot of changes some of it very good and some recently that is not so good ~ those that know me as a friend understand my need to speak up ~ is this a form of bullying that someone buys some stuff but cannot share it with whoever? Was there rules governing the limit on who and what you can share with others even if you bought and paid for it? If there was or is am not aware of it and why now what has changed ~ oh we all know the hot rather sticky topic that am talking about and I will not name names but am wondering why just one person ~ there are other places and sims that do not choose to ask for fees to use their stuff ~ possibly they are asking to join a group at zero cost do they get harassed or  bullied or intimidated to feel like what they did is a sin?  Actually no they don’t and does that mean those individuals who go to those places should wear a Red letter on their chest because they possibly some think so ~ WHY? As a blogger I have possibly a huge collection of backdrops along with various photo studios that I let friends come and use is this shame on me? Have won several in gacha events and have purchased all so am not sure why jump on this bandwagon of anti sharing now ~ what about all the photo studio’s out there that are placed at various locations that are FREE to use with poses from different creators should they be griefed and bullied, or posemakers that place scenes/backdrops  out for whoever should they be taunted and bullied because they are sharing something  that they paid for from other creators ~ why now is this an issue ~ sighs sadly if the creators of these items would rather not have them shared possibly make them only useful to the owner an no one else ~ oh everyone will have their own voice in this, their own thoughts as this is mine ~ possibly my back is against the wall like the image below

Speaking out 

One last comment on this let’s be a little kinder to others when there is no malicious intent as more people should ask why now? Comments are more than welcome ~ insults are not ♥

Taking time…

When you have had enough of the Christmas spirit and want to take time to unwind a little before the New Year festivities you grab some thing from your closet that you enjoy wearing don’t you? This outfit JEM by Giulia Designs was just right to wear while packing my Christmas Stuff in boxes ready for next year.  Much as I love putting it out, I really love it after the holiday is over to scoop it all up and get it out of the way.  Am getting  the feeling the nights are going to get longer soon, which means that Spring might not be far behind lol~ That’s my thoughts anyway~ Taking a quick break to show  you this outfit Jem that is from Giulia Design  an EXCLUSIVE to Designer Showcase until the end of the month and have to say I want to give credits to Giulia Aura the creator/owner of Giulia Designs for bringing us this sexy yet versatile combo~

Time

The corset top is part mesh, part applier ~a treat to my Maitreya body, with its boned features to the bodice along with the lace trim to the cups on the bra part to show off your breasts to their full advantage~ the pants and boots are all in one which will show of your curves ~with both coming with huds for the appliers in maitreya and slink~if you need a ride the take the TAXI ~Will be back with you in the New Year to show you some new things with Starr so till then be safe Dena ♥

Looking cheeky…

Feeling rather good after spending good part of the day cleaning up my home and worked on my inventory for most of the day ~ love using folders but still I resort to building boxes to put items like Christmas trees and various other holiday stuff that I won’t be needing for another year ~ the box is stuffed full but instead of bringing it back into my inventory I find space to hide it among the huge pine trees that are still in winter mode ~ making sure that I label the box properly this can reduce your inventory a lot and even if you do put it back it is only resulting as 1 item that really cuts down the numbers ~ love to hear from you all on how you go about organizing your closet ~ being here for over 8 years you tend to accumulate a lot of stuff ~ whether that stuff is clothes, shoes, hair or whatever it builds up to double digits then have fun when you want to find something specific ~ oh yes those are some that just love to use the “Wardrobe” but I think it is double duty taking pics of each item am on the lazy side, which is why I rely on organizing folders and sub-folders ~ under clothes I have folders for shoes, jeans, skirts, tops, bathing suits, etc.  but bestie told me she puts her skins and catwa under body parts in folders so I took her advice and jumped on that idea ~ Now onto the cheeky part…giggling

Cheeky
yes very cheeky huh 

This little sexy number called Cheri Black is at Designer Showcase till the end of the month and it is one that I KNOW hubby will enjoy me wearing ~ yup 3 years being with Sten I can say he is an off the curb sweety that truly appreciates me looking sexy and classy so will turn around for you to show you that the front has a little more coverage still very sexy…

Cheri Black by Guilia Design 

What really makes this a must have outfit is first the designer/creator’s attention to detail from the boots to the texture this is a quality outfit ~ I do like how it fits so nicely without any gaps that bending over will expose what Mother Nature gave you *wink* and you know am speaking of “the girls” ~ and the boots mold to your legs again without a loose less that I see at times ~ it is quality ++ ~ exclusive ONLY to Designer Showcase till the end of the month ~ Need a ride to the showroom my TAXI is gassed and waiting…till next time and I got more STUFF to show ya…be good till then ♥♥

The Day After…

Happy Boxing Day to those that celebrate…and according to Wikipedia it states “In Britain, it was a custom for tradesmen to collect “Christmas boxes” of money or presents on the first weekday after Christmas as thanks for good service throughout the year” other countries celebrate this as well with huge shopping sales and if you are in the USA like myself a lot of day after sales are ongoing as well as the dreaded returns…Right now I am spending more than my 30 minutes on inventory as my closet exploded from all the gifts from Advents, Arcade, and the Poe hunt ~ for the next couple weeks will be showing you a lot of the stuff that I received this month ~ makes me happy that so many creators this year went with a lot of Winter stuff and not just Christmas items even thought the Christmas items were adorable I have already taken down my trees and packed all those goodies away for use next Christmas…

Still Looking…

Are you still looking for that Christmas gift or Winter stuff? The Winter Bazaar is still ongoing till the end of this month and is filled not just with Christmas but Winter stuff as well ~ I have lotz to show you some Christmas and some just winter, which I love that you can keep using for as long as you want ~ oh I know that some people love keeping up decorations and trees all year round and that is their choice am one that January 1st all my Christmas tree, ornaments and stuff is taken down and put away till next year…that was a tradition in our house watching the Rose Bowl Parade and undressing the tree…never seen the parade live but I can only imagine how the smells and the sight of all those real flowers must be overwhelming ~ now I have the pleasure of being able to put this item from [Cursed Angels]Christmas Tree Farm scene out for you and it is really unique ~

Christmas Tree Farm scene by [Cursed Angels]
As you peek thru the trees a deer is watching me put on an ornament while to my left a pesky squirrel is also watching ~ probably both are wondering if there will be treats left for them as we must not forget about the animals during winter time to leave outside some fruits, nuts or bread for the animals ~

Winter5a
Joyeux Noel 

Holding the sign “Noel” which I did google to get my information correct as Websters is stating “Noel” is borrowed from the French meaning Carol and going back even further with the Latin meaning birthday…either way this is usually synonymous with Christmas…I do hope that you will take my lucky SLEIGH and travel over the the Winter Bazaar to see all the goodies they have plus there is a hunt going on as well with some great prizes for you to find…till next time please remember to be good to yourself and others ♥

Credits go to [Cursed Angels] for giving me the opportunity to show off their Winter Bazaar item ~ thank you ♥

Outdoor Cuddling…

Hey everyone I am baaack ~ a very laid back trip for me spending lot of time reading and doing a little sightseeing ~ was so nice just unplug and enjoy myself completely ~ plus I saved a gopher tortoise from being possibly squashed on a busy road ~ and we are not talking about a small box turtle this was big and slightly heavy to pick up and move across the road, which was an experience and sadly no pics because I didn’t have time to yell at my gf to take pics *giggling* anyway its back to blogging and Vic from Nerenzo sent hubby and me this gorgeous Snuggle blanket and fireplace ~ wanted to really do something different and set it outside among the trees and snow ~
