moving day…

Move1
surrounded by boxes

Yes it is moving day as Sten and I made the decision to downsize and go out of our comfort zone to a tropical paradise island ~ something neither of us have lived on and we even found one with the same land owners from before as we like how they provide great customer service 24/7 without any complaints ~ even found a new home to settle into now comes the fun part well maybe fun ~ laughing at least it is not as bad as in RL where you gotta lug in box after box ~ unpack, put things away ooh yes not even close to being my favorite thing but you would think so as much as I have moved in RL ~ AND if you remember I was telling you that hubby FINALLY got a absolutely new sexy look with a Catwa/Daniel just check out his pic on my Flickr page ~ even got tats and earring am like woah he is very sexy ~ thats about it for me as tomorrow brings in a new month will be lot of new stuff to share with you ~ before I do forget I so want to thank my fellow bloggers like Moz, Shari and Rhi for their support and kind comments ~ being a blogger you truly have some people to help and inspire you ~ till next time as I gotta get back to unpacking and setting up our home since hubby put some stuff out guess its up to me to finish hehehe ~ just kidding he actually is a great decorator ~ love ya Sten ♥ hugzz to all

Looking towards…

Feb27b.jpg
Early Spring Nite

Where I live in RL the trees are starting to bud, daffodils are popping out and you just are excited to be looking for Spring ~ yes that is RL and looking around in SL am very excited that Little Branch has some new trees and flowers for you to decorate your home…I wanna quote something that describes their items “Imagine a virtual world with scenery so realistic you can almost reach out and touch it, where you can switch between seasons at the click of a button.” Exactly and perfectly said as you cannot see in the above image but when you go to Little Branch’s Inworld store and look at how gentle the sway is in the leaves or the details in the flowers you will be amazed and possible take another look…this is what I love the quality and detail that goes into each of their trees as most have 4 seasons, animated and so realistic ~ on the left side the trees are all Hazelnut with the far left is Autumn and the one next is Winter ~ on the right both trees are Katsura also 4 seasons one Summer and one Autumn ~ ooh yes don’t forget the gorgeous Bouton d’or flowers in lavender, pink, and yellow ~ giving a very serene and peaceful look to my little lighthouse…Please take my Ride to Little Branch, walk around on the well landscaped grounds, into the open warehouses and possibly purchase a couple of trees and flowers for your land ~ you will not be disappointed ♥

Laundry…

Laundry
Laundry day

With all the clothes in my closet guess there comes a time when you need to clean some of your favorites ~ this is not one of my favorite things to do especially in RL ~ seriously not sure if it is just the whole process or having to fold and put away and if I was rich, which is probably never gonna happen I would have someone just to come in and do my laundry ~ now you might call me pampered or spoiled but until I left home my Mom would do all mine for me ~ that was one of the things looking back on those memories how truly great a Mom she was ~ never thought about what she really did but she truly had a very hard job raising 3 children and a husband who at times was very old school ~ dinner at a specific time mostly meat, potatoes and a veggie and we said grace, elbows off the table and my Mom barely having time to sit down and eat as most time she ate at the sink or the kitchen counter ~ pausing to reflect as I can say it has been over 18 years now and there are times that I miss her so much it hurts ♥ funny we were both very strong females so you can only imagine some of our battles ~ anyway nuff of my rambling and my outfit is a little bit of this and that from inside my closet but need to give you a closeup of my face so you can see some of the Powder Pack goodies from this month.

feb26
Skin and Makeup from Powder Pack/February

If you are not aware of Powder Pack it is a subscription box that every other month will feature items strictly for Catwa ~ the other months feature Lelutika ~ Strawberry Singh does a nice YouTube video unpacking and showing you all the items ~ here is her link for this month as I like listening to her and watching her unpack the items ~ the box has a total of 12 designers that create something exclusive for Catwa owners ~ it is a nice way to be introduced to skins that you might not ever know or try ~ most of the items are fatpack another plus…Cost wise might tend to be a tad pricey except now it is coming every other month so you have plenty of time to save your Lindens ~ here is the link to Powder Pack so you can possibly reserve or buy a box…welp laundry needs to be put in the dryer so till next time be good to yourself and kind to others ♥♥

Forgot my…

feb24a
enjoying the sun 

Oh someone reminded me just today that I had a rez day recently am like OMG I forgot all about it and guess so did anyone else ~ not sure to be happy or sad about that fact maybe a little disappointed ~but its no biggie after being in here for over 9 years as I have been in here since 2008 that really is a long long time ~ just went and pulled up my retired ones profile am like woah look at me *giggling cuz back then I just thought that I was so hawt LOL but then again so did everyone else too ~ all the changes from then to now is amazing ~ SL truly has come a long way from when I first logged in ~ anyway nuff about the good ole days and this cute dress that was cleaning out my inventory and came upon it was if am not mistaken a 25 L special can you believe it ~ It is from “On a Lark and came with a hud ~ excellent detail with the lacing and fabric plus fits perfectly on my Maitreya bod ~ dug out another pair of shoes that are practically new since have not worn them from Empire that also came with a hud and those are over a year old ~ woah guess it does pay to spend some quality time cleaning up my closet ~ going back to trying to spend 30 minutes of uninterrupted time just on my closet and it has helped as I am findings things like this cute dress and those shoes ~ shoes for me are ones that I will save especially if they have a hud ~ clothes I might save a nice gown, maybe a couple pairs of jeans and tops but for the most part am trying not to save so many clothing items…seasonal stuff goes into boxes and labeled like Halloween items, Christmas, etc..alright think I have rambled enough and need another cup of coffee so hang around as am sure will be back soon ~ hugzz and thank you for becoming one of my followers♥♥

Ut~oh…

ut oh
oh nooooooo 

Ut ooh hubby and I have not seen each other for days due to his RL work schedule and my obsession with watching Olympics at night so he ran to grab me in a big bear hug and yikes I feel myself bending backwards grabbing his lapels still feeling myself fall….oh no  I feel his head pushing into my chest am like this is not gonna end pretty and the camera goes off with my mouth open and Stens face is pressing my girls down, which I know he doesn’t mind but…giggling ~ and am not gonna show you us laying on the ground with me on the bottom, Sten on top still enjoying this as he is grinning like a fool ~ its all good but the rest is between me and hubby ~ sorry ♥

Credits ~ this was made possible by my down under mate Kay Weston of Image Essentials who came up with this creative couples pose call “Fun Times” and this is a very early early peek for it will be available at Designer Circle on March 4th ~ mark those calendars as this is truly a very cute pose ~ can have some fun with this one…gotta thank my sweet sexy hubby who FINALLY is now sporting a Catwa mesh head YAY !! check out my flickr for his newest profile pic in the upcoming days…btw this was shot at our home using Kay’s newest pose “Fun Times” and no one was hurting in the making of this image *grinz

Impatient and…

Impatient1a
Where is it…

As I look for my teeny earring that fell out of my ear just have to admit that yes am a tad impatient and bitchy lately ~ well the truth is most times am impatient and yes I am bitchy ~ sometimes I just sit, tap my fingers and like OK already tell me or I mumble, grumble like oooooh ya just couldn’t wait huh ~ we all go through moods don’t we and no one can be Miss Merry Sunshine 24/7 or can they?  Shrugs as I keep looking down to find just what I dropped ~ anyway little bit on the moodier side as my brain unravels these past few days so don’t mind me ♥

Impatient1
Pensive

At least these latest poses from Kay called “Perfection” are actually just perfect ~ as I try to think of something upbeat to say and it is not helping ~ maybe just tell you that the set of those poses are in Kay’s store Image Essentials and your Ride is here to take you ~ aaah yes the skin Valentyna from 7 Deadly s[K]ins is really becoming one of my faves ~ last thing please please please those getting or have a Mesh head male or female you need to try on demo’s of skins before you throw out your Lindens to make sure it is compatible with your body type ~ it is hard not to rush out and buy the first one you like without trying on a demo then once you buy it just is not what you thought it would look like on…that is why each skin creator makes sure they have demo’s and if they don’t welp if its me I would pass that up as all reputable skin creators make sure they do have demos…Here is your RIDE to 7 Deadly ~ check them out and don’t forget about all the camping chairs in the store ~ last I looked what a great thing to sit in a chair for so many minutes and come away with a skin…cheers ♥ oops before I forget this was shot at Backdrop City using I.E. Perfection #1 & 2 poses ~  laterzzz ♥♥

Dontcha just…

Annoyed
annoyed

Yes dontcha just want at times to open that Exit doors and say “please leave” to those that are rude, annoying and disrespectful towards others ~ today was one of those days and actually it started out really well ~ as my SL hubby always wakes me up with such a nice text that makes me smile ~ got my RL all sorted came into SL and found this gorgeous gown with another brand new skin from 7 Deadly and then it is like this teeny little insect kept on trying to, wanting, demanding attention in a group that shall be nameless but I will point out that when someone in a group pays a compliment they should at least get a thank you back ~ for me it is called “manners” ~ when it is not done sorry but it plucks at my nerve and after a bit of this happening on a consistent basis I tend to speak up ~ rather than go into everything i’m not very appreciative of being called a name that I will not lower myself to repeat ~ anyway nuff said on it but I think SL/RL people need to have manners and respect for each other especially in this social times…

someday…

Perla1a
some days

You just want to walk among the flowers quietly enjoying their beauty ~ hearing sounds of nature and nothing more ~ breathing in the smells and scents and just smiling ~ some days that is all you need ♥  and yes am wearing another new skin called Perla by 7 Deadly s{K}ins that comes with the option of browless which will give you a close up as am wearing one of my own brows ~

Perla1b
Perla in Marshmallow 

I did choose a lighter tone this time and this is a gorgeous skin that as I mentioned comes with the no brow option ~ you can find this at the new main store if some were not aware of the move please make sure you take notice when you land ~ still a lot of new goodies and gifts for you ~ please remember to try demo’s and my other suggestion is changing the windlight like Strawberry Singh “headshot” that will give you a nice look without any shadows ~ will leave you now as I hopefully can figure out what is going on with my computer ~ will be back soon ♥

petite patisserie…

PetiteP1
our petite patisserie

Dena and I decided to go with a Parisian theme in choosing to decorate especially with the great build from this months Deco(c)rate ~ all geared towards Paris ~ from the build by Serenity Style that is truly inspiring we chose just to use a small portion of this build to create one of those outdoor cafes that we imagined passing by and stopping in for a latte and a yummy chocolate croissant ~ I did take a little liberty by changing the name of it on the awning which those that might not understand the words it loosely translates to Friends Bakery along with the other sign of course also in French to say “open” ~ As you look in the window you will see another item from the February crate that the gorgeous balloon chandelier by {-Maru Kado-} ~ as the cafe table that is set for two, which includes coffee pot, napkin holder, plate of croissant and a latte with spoon and the adorable sugar pack ~ love the chairs too that you can see has the Eiffel Tower built into both that was created by Backbone ~ how creative right…the rest we dug deep into our closet to create an adorable outdoor cafe scene ~ there is much more from the crate that we will be showing off for you later so please stick around ♥♥

Credits go to first my BESTIE Dena for all her input and really coming through with those great suggestions ~ for the great February Deco(c)rate this month as it will be featured a number of times ~ and to all my followers and those that take time to send out comments and compliments especially those that do the home and decor blogs  ~ thank you
