Into our Closets ~ Day 32

Yes we all are back ~ poor hubby really thought he was going to do this alone again…nope its Monday and it is also February the shortest month of the year only 29 days…since he was at work Dena and I decided to go “Goth” and yes again even though my no buy clothes ban has officially over YIPPEE am still showing you stuff that is not recently bought…but yes I did purchase to new outfits and will show them to you sometime this month…not sure why since my closet is so overflowing still makes no sense but I truly think it is the shopaholic in me that I need to buy ~ what did I learn with no buying any clothes this past month ~ that I survived, that I really didn’t miss out because those outfits that I really really wanted are still around and there was no rush to have to get them right then…and lastly for the most part after really going into my closet that I really need to step up on what I truly want to buy instead of just buying to buy…ok with that said let me show you our goth look ~ Day32b

This look is really out of my comfort zone ~ from the melty eye makeup that I got from Bella Elephante and added on that with the darkened lips & eyes from [mock] ~ that really set the tone or the look rather then I found this uniform blazer and skirt from Goth1c0 which is strictly on Marketplace  ~ not sure when I even grabbed this as I tried to look to see if it was still able for purchase I didn’t see it ~ paired it with Blueberry’s Stockings that finished off the look and slipped on my ankle boots from R.icielli completing it…oh yes even changed the color of my hair from my usual blonde locks to midnight ~ as I stare at myself am thinking this is so not me…..but hey sometimes you just got to get out of your comfort zone…anyway Dena looks like a Goth Queen as you will see..

Day32c

Gothic is my theme for today’s outfit and yes I thought of this first not Starr let me point that out first * giggling* and she just scrambled around throwing clothes here and there to come up with that look you saw above…anyway back to my outfit ~ Way back in a time when vampire’s ruled part of this land the ladies had to be very extra careful where they went and had to ALWAYS carry a cross with them as you know that is a preventive measure if you run across a vampire to stick a cross in their face ~ so I am making sure with triple the crosses am wearing plus my bracelet…hey one can never be too careful in SL because it is filled with vampires, werewolf’s and other creepy creatures…This dress really just flows and the look it gives is lush with the rich grey tones and the silk wrap that is draped around my shoulders …wear this to a fancy ball or put it back in your closet till Halloween…accessorized with Roxane Cross Earrings, cross choker and from Rebellion a nice iron cross bracelet…I apologize that all I know about the dress it is called Mary Salem Dress ~

Day32a

My cold is finally on its way out and Starr and Dena both surprised me by showing up while I was working so am not alone for today’s post…it is always nice to see them and do miss seeing their beauty on the pages *think that is a suck-up for past deeds* am hoping so…this outfit that am sitting here showing you is another mix/match one ~ jacket and shirt combo that is called “Bishop” comes from Rebellion   very nice texture and a really good fit ~ pants are from Heaven’s Hell that sadly are no longer in SL ~ if you get a chance though take the LM to Rebellion and have a look around they are on Marketplace as well and their prices are very reasonable…

Nice for everyone to be back today to welcome in February ~ so please stick around as we all have so much more to show you ~ thank you for taking time to read, if you like please follow me ~ till next time hugzz to all

Into our closets ~ Day 27

Four more days till end of the month and my self imposed no buying clothes for me will be over ~ has anyone else done this just said no buying for a month, a week or even a couple of days…this really gave me the time to spend looking into that huge closet or inventory and really think at times why did I buy this or what was I thinking…a lot of those emotions and feelings when I tried on some of the outfits ranged from OMG and ewww or even got several wow why did I forget this one…oh there has to be several of you that have expressed exactly the same thoughts if you take time to go through your inventory…someone expressed a thought as to why I had no clue of what were in some of the unopened boxes…because am not even sure when they were purchased ~ especially in the past year I went on hunts, attended sales and got group gifts ~ and the majority of them just got thrown into my closet without ever opening…that was another thing that I am being diligent about is hunts ~ and yes I know without everyone rolling their eyes at me that at times that vendors do tend to get lazy with prizes ~ oh I will say on their behalf that 88% of the time the prizes are awesome ~ they match the theme of the hunt and provides a view into what exactly the designer has to offer but there are some that really astound me like a store owner that is a very well known clothing store that put out a headband or another clothes designer gave a pair of sunglasses ~ hunts for me are a good way to attract new customers especially if it is a 1L hunt which I feel that this your be a prize worthy ~ ok just a little rambling on about a subject I should hush…let me show you the clothes ~

Day27bb

Searching through my closet today I found this from GeMyles..the cut away sides of the top gives a great look at the waist, the plunging neckline shows off just enough cleavage..The advantage to this outfit as it fits all avi’s *well unless you are a gorilla, or some other non human* also comes with a color hud that as we all love to have choices as to colors…skinny jeans and boots that are studded and have my bestie just drooling over them ~ wonder if she will grab this outfit *giggling at that thought* and yes the outfit is called Julietta for those that would like to also get on board and grab it …btw here is a ride straight to GeMyles ~ while you are there check out the other items in the store…Hair is from my fave if you have not guessed it is”Truth“…

Day27aa

Hello once again…I have a bad cold today so I thought I would be a bum and lay on our couch ~ no such luck as wife prods me to come up to her studio soo here I am in my robe and undies holding a cup of Starbucks ~ what I do for my sexy wife and yes comes from the love and support I have for her ~ the outfit comes from the marketplace store of Casual Playerz ~ here is the link to it ~ a nice casual mesh robe, very sexy boxers *that was my wife’s comment when she saw them btw* oh yes she does admire them and my fluffy slippers so feet do not get cold and that just adds to the casual bum look that I should still be laying on our couch ~ now if I can just convince Starr or umm even her best friend Dena to come and wait on me while possibly wearing a naughty nurses outfit it sure would help my recovery ~ waits for the glare and smack on my arm as dear sweet sexy wifey reads this….

Day27ab

 

Rolling my eyes as I stare at hubby while taking this pic ~ seriously he wants me to what wipe his brow, or fix him a cuppa soup while wearing a naughty nurse outfit HA HA but really I would because he is my world and he does so spoil me ~ and yes he thinks am sexy so I found this way way in my closet from a store on MP only  {Touch MIA} “Twas the Night II” and paired it with Mia Jeans from Blueberry ~ slipped on some fave shoes from Ricielli along with the final touch of the brand new necklace from Bellic Rockz that she made one for females and the other for males that I featured earlier with my hubby wearing ~ oh he still is wearing it ~ must like it huh…

Oooh lastly one thing that you might of noticed Dena and I have finally found a skin that we both love to replace our other one ~ sadly I really loved that skin but there was a major flaw that for any shots involving total naked the right nipple just was not matching up with Lara and it was to me and to Dena very noticeable to the point I just was not happy anymore with it ~ really didnt want to change my look drastically so I knew one day would find a replacement ~ after months and weeks of looking Glam Affair had made a side store with some other skins and tp’d over there to look and YESSS I found one well in honestly I found 2 hmmm same skin just different tones and the more I thought about it I grabbed both up ~ so if you see me at times looking lighter or darker that is the reason…huge kudo’s to Glam for helping me finally find a replacement…thank you !! Alright stick around because yes I have some more goodies to show you from Bellic Rockz that are on a great promo price…as the one am wearing is also 99L ~ till then hugzz

Follow me to The Garden of Whimsy

Garden of Whimsy

Hello again! Today it is just me as I looked around for Dena she was unavailable that thing called “RL” does crop up now and again but I wanted to show you this Winter Attraction that had also a cute hunt going on ~ As I arrived if you can see above the morning was foggy but really hoping that it clears up quickly…very cute name “Garden of Whimsy” and after taking a stroll around I can see it is truly appropriate…

GardenofW1a
Have a seat just be careful of Mama and her baby

The fog started lifting as I walked by a very cute seating place ~ started to pet but Mama was very protective of her puppy so I just stayed back a ways and let my camera take the pic … think you will be fine but if she does start to growl I would slowly step back…

Gardenofw1c
Cute bunnies

Can we just say awwwwww to these adorable bunnies that I met in my search for the Christmas hud ~ how cute and yes ok am gonna say it “whimsy” ~ look around as you walk down the paths for all the other critters as they are plentiful and pure photo ops for those that wish to add these to their flickr collection…

GardenofW2
Christmas Hud

Yay I found the place to get the Hud ~ directions are easy just wear/add and will come along with you to keep track of the objects you have to find ~ should of kept track of how many needed just to tell you but once you put on the hud gives you the amount…first one I found was the candy cane ~ there are 3 different presents to find, various ornaments as you can see in the image and also the star ~ I won’t say follow the yellow brick road but there is a star path that takes you all over this sim ~ and they are not hidden but very well in plain sight…

GardenofW1b
Family of Dogs

Another adorable family of dogs and wittle bitty rabbits too ~ they are ready for the holidays ~ I asked about if they had seen any of the items I was searching for but one the Dad was too busy with his chew toy and the little ones were investigating whatever was hiding in the hollow log.

gardenofw1aa
Sleigh and snowman

What I needed was a rest and walking past this sleigh with the most gorgeous Clydesdale at rest looked like the perfect spot to rest briefly …do you see all the little critters starting to gather in front of the fire ~ made me smile as I hopped in the sleigh.

gardenofw1bb
Me and Shai

My snowman pal who has this quizzical expression sat down briefly ~ he was a pressie from The Arcade so a huge thank you to Casa Del Shai for this ~ hey if you get a chance make sure you do visit The Arcade and look under the tree for an array of pressies from all the vendors ~ they really outdid themselves as you can see by my little snowman ~ anyway I am finding most of the ornaments and pressies but it is a hunt so my lips are sealed to locations ~

GardenofW3
Sled time ~ NOT 

Ha, ha, ha you really think I am going sledding ummm nope this was just a photo opp to show you they have a nice sled rezzer for singles, doubles and even 4somes ~ it goes fast but my driving skills even with this sled well lets just say they are HORRIBLE ok can you see there I think my sweater got torn….do hope it is mendable as this was a gift from Kerena Zhangsun who created this for Calas ~ I will be heartbroken if it cannot be fixed..

gardenofW1cc
Gazebo with piano

Walking around I spied this gazebo that held such a cute piano ~ yes yes I just had to sit down and let my fingers play the only tune I know and memorized ~ what is it well do not laugh but “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley ~ was the only full song I learned to play on a piano ~ my Dad would beg me to learn another one umm not sure if he was a fan of it but probably cuz I practiced it over and over and over till I got it perfect *laughing as I think back now eons ago….blushing as I just realize that I did date myself but hey never said I was a youngin just young at heart 🙂

GardenofW1
Saying so long to Garden of Whimsy

As I stand on the bridge with the hunt completed am taking one last look around ~ the sim is delightful and even if you miss the hunt which I truly hope you don’t was a very nice relaxing time to walk around…photographers take notice as there are some great places for photo ops ~ nice places to cuddle and relax…am sorry that my blogging partner Dena had to miss this but will pass on the LM to her as well as to you, which just click here  and enjoy Garden of Whimsy ~ thank you to my readers and followers it is always so appreciated to know you are reading ~ details of what am wearing is below but till next time HUGZZ

Day 7 Poe Hunt cont’d ….

PoeBlog
Chic

Still opening all the boxes from the Poe Hunt and came across this outfit ~ a nice warm cozy knitted sweater ~ looks very warm doesn’t it?  Matching it with the red stockings that came with it makes for one that will be hanging in my closet.

The outfit came from “Chic” and taking a quick peak in the store seems the globe is still there ~ look at the hint list under store # 59 for the clue.  The hunt did end yesterday but a lot of vendors are still being very kind in leaving out their globes.  In the upcoming posts I will check to see if the globe is in store before I show you what goodie they put out.

I do have a couple of comments regarding hunts and gifts ~ the 2 hunts that I took on surprised me and at the same time disappointed me ~ in doing the hunt I did find some great new stores like the one this gift came from ~ for me and am sure for others doing a hunt provides a good opportunity to be introduced to new stores and new items ~ just a little disapointed when I open a box from a very well known store that sells hair and their gift was a mask ~ now please do not think am ungrateful for anything yet a little surprised that you would think any store would want to show off what they do best ~ Yes I do know it is a hunt and you need to follow the clue instead of just walking in and picking up the gift ~ but making the object so microscopic or tiny that you spend up to 45 minutes getting frustrated and just pass the store ~ frustration only leads to never going back, vendor loses possibly not one but several new customers due to word of mouth ~ same thing for placing phony objects ~ yes I will agree and say that one or two is fine but when you see they have placed up to 20 or even 50 makes me annoyed and if they do not want anyone finding their hunt gift then why even enter because in just my personal experience I will make a note not to come back.  Hunts are to be fun and provide ways to meet and make friends along the way.  Anyway just my observation that is all ~ till next time please stick around I have lotz more to show you ~ hugzz
