Matching

Some may think its corny or way too not chic yet for me I do think its sweet when at times you wear matching tops ~ oh am not speaking about a daily or even a weekly thing ~ no that gets to be a tad creepy in my eyes seeing adults always dressed alike ~ the sweaters are from The Arcade by Bleich ♥  oh looking for more gifts head over there and in the middle there is a huge Christmas tree that you can see underneath a lot of gifts ~ still sorting stuff from all the Advents and group gifts ~ speaking of gifts for those that are members of Calas Ty and Truck have the rather fabulous scarves that you see wrapped around our neck as gifts this year…Little Frenchie is a past gift and is still out at the Pavilion for those looking for a cute pet…I am still curious about your thoughts if you think matching holiday sweaters are just creepy or they are alright in moderation…RL is screaming as today is my appointment with a surgeon nothing major ~ before I head out I wanted to comment on the nice remarks that have been getting on my blog posts ~ thank you so much for those as they do mean a lot to me ♥♥ till next time as it gets closer and closer to the big day take time out for yourself ~ enjoy a moment of peace, sip on your favorite drink whether hot, cold, alcoholic or not hehehe…

no peeking…

NoPeeking
Have you ever peeked inside one of your presents ~ were you happy you did or felt guilty afterward…One time during my high school years I had asked Santa *yes my parents made us still write Santa Lists*, for a pair of these very popular go-go boots *YES am old hehehe* My girlfriend kept pestering me about I should go peek to see if they got them ~ my tummy was rolling at that since peeking was not something I have ever done and really did not want to start now…since she lived 2 doors down and was always at my house she was becoming annoying with that question ~ on and on till I wanted to say shut up, stop, and alright already…end of the story is yes I did a small peek at the box that you could tell was a boot box but no I never fully opened it and the guilt of peeking was horrid ~ a little funny seeing even as a high schooler perfect was not a word to describe me ~ not a horrible person but did all that I could to push my parents buttons to the point of getting on restriction most of my teen years ♥ After my Dad passed away Christmas Eve was never the same especially for my Mom as her and my Dad would share that night putting out the pressies along with stocking stuff ~ one Christmas Eve  I wanted to do something special, before coming home from work, went to her favorite Chinese carryout, and splurged on her favorites that became our Christmas eve ritual for years to come…it is always nice to have those memories to look back to enjoy even if some are sad and not pleasant ♥ ♥ please remember December is the spirit of giving ♥

This was shot at a friends platform with the help of Delcinea and her partner Lord who I truly thank them for setting this up, giving me some suggestions & tips for future shots…

Cocoa anyone…

CocoaAnyone

Did you know there is a difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate? According to Google and a Chocolate website there are differences as I thought it was only an usage of different words ~seem there is no real definition of either at least in today’s world yet “Traditionally, hot cocoa is a thin, sweetened beverage, made from cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. Hot cocoa may or may not contain other flavorings, such as vanilla, liqueur, or spices. Hot cocoa is often less rich and sweeter than hot chocolate. Historically, hot chocolate (also called drinking chocolate or sipping chocolate), is made with actual chocolate (often shaved or ground into fine pieces so it melts quickly). Because of the high-fat content of chocolate, hot chocolate is richer than hot cocoa. Hot chocolate made be made with water (traditional in some parts of Europe) or with milk. It is usually less sweet than hot cocoa, and many makers of hot chocolate pride themselves on having their product be a thick, bittersweet beverage.  Interesting to me my Mom would say hot cocoa because she made it from Hershey’s cocoa powder, sugar, and milk ~ when I got older would add in Baileys to give it a nice little pop.  I wonder how many are doing the POE hunt as this year there are a lot of nice things like the dress am wearing is from the hunt *check credits* ~ for those that are counting down till Christmas you have 18 more days till the big man delivers pressies ~ hugzz to all and to each of you remember to be kind to one another ♥♥

am here…

Festive

Peeking out from my rather long bangs am thinking of absolutely nothing as the last couple days my sinuses have just taken my energy and stuffed it somewhere…It is a good thing my Christmas list is super short and have already finished getting the bigger gifts that I needed.  The Forest ~ Winter Wonderland starts out with you landing at a Train station among a gorgeously done snow scene.  When you look out while waiting for the train to take you around you will see deer grazing as well as the Christmas gnomes that are keeping watch…Plus those amazing igloo’s that are just behind me ~ this is another sim that I will be coming back for more exploring as it deserves a second look ♥  The warm sweater am wearing is one of the pressies from the POE hunt…after years doing this I realize the need to get it done early as a lot of the gifts are geared for Christmas and winter…Peace on Earth hunt is marking its 11th year in SL ~ clicking on the above link will take you to the website where you can find a list of the stores and the prizes♥  The gorgeous scarf wrapped around my neck is a pressie from Ty & Truck owners of Calas and the gorgeous Christmas sim A Midnight Clear ~ it is a group gift that is free and you will find it at the Pavilion under a table close to the front as you come in…lastly my hat/hair was a very nice pressie from my bestie Dena ♥  Before I go please let me thank each of my readers for taking time out to read my blog as this truly makes me smile especially when a stranger sends me an IM telling me they love reading my blog and yes I am surprised at times to hear that honestly did not realize…to my friends and fellow bloggers thank you a well for supporting me ~ till next time hugzz to all ♥

city sidewalks…

NewYork

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air, there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner, you hear…”

New York City is a place that truly celebrates their holidays ~ from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Centre…not a place I would live in because things are hectic, people rushing around and at times a little bit scary for me…yet as a past visitor of that Big Apple it is marvelous to go visit, see the amazing sights especially at Christmas time when you can go ice skating right next to that huge Christmas tree, walk along Fifth Avenue, grab a bag of those delicious roasted chestnuts from a street vendor and many other touristy things that NYC offers…

NewYork1.png

Also, the infamous New York subway that is an experience within the underground you can hear live musicians ~ some famous ~ some not…you never know what you will see down there ~ feeling festive wearing one of the Advent gifts and the necklace that is also a pressie from the Poe hunt *check credits below*  That’s it for now with the exception of a little reminder regarding those suffering from depression as it gets closer and closer to Christmas a lot of individuals truly struggle and need compassion along with making sure they are aware you are there for me even if it is just a short call saying “hello was thinking of you” even a short text might just brighten someone’s day ~ hugzz ♥♥

Babe cave…

BabeCave

Like the man cave there is also the “Babe cave” and [nb]-Naughty Bits has created this adorable structure that Dena so aptly assisted with me ~ well she is truly amazing when it comes to styling and decorating as most times am the one behind the camera and she gives me instructions on what she thinks it needs as I go searching for the item ~ this item has 2 things for the Rock your Rack event ~ the Structure itself and the Chaise ~ the Babe Cave comes fitted with the drapes and the chandelier that when darkness falls it will shed light for you ♥  The Chaise is the limited item that has a lot of unique features to it as it is not just PG or Adult but a combination of both with some nice quality animations built in ~ Just a small reminder about limited items that they are here just for the event and will disappear once the event is over ~ rides will be below ♥

BabeCaveA

My wish is that you are enjoying yourself at Rock Your Rack like Dena and I went and did the Hunt looking for those elusive hangers and finding quite a bit of goodies that I will be showing you ~ this event will continue till next Saturday ending Oct 13th ♥  This event is for The National Breast Cancer Foundation, which really helps so many females as each of you am sure has been touched by this horrible disease…Shot at my home with the great help from my bestie Dena ♥  btw the wall decor includes the 4 sets of pictures and the rug ~ this is the hunt item for [NB]

I love when my brain is just stuck and bestie Dena will come up with a suggestion that truly rocks♥ What also rocks is the Rock your Rack event that is opening today for 2 weeks with 70 designers, live singers, fashion shows and more…Why should you because this event is all about Breast Cancer and monies donated help, someone, you might know to get a breast exam that possibly they couldn’t afford, the money helps to inform men and women signs of breast cancer and how to prepare them, the money helps to support someone who might be all alone going through this ~, yes all those donations, portions of the profits from the creators items at the Event go directly to The National Breast Cancer Foundation…See the hangers holding Dena and myself up they are part of the RYR hunt and designers have graciously provided an item that could be a top or a piece of decor ~ what I am wearing is the hunt prize from Sasheba’s Closet that is a Woodstock Duster …a gorgeous item that also comes with a hud of 3 color choices ~ I have seen a portion of the hunt items and for me they are worth way more than the 10L you just need to find the hanger at each booth and most are very easy to spot as they are pink♥  Enjoy and have fun at this event ~ rides will be below…also wanna know more about the RYR event please click HERE
