but first…

End of Autumn

ok case in point about “but first” as I was ready to do this blog had the title all picked out, image done and gawd I forgot to write down the title but first I had RL stuff laundry, etc to get done, then I remembered to check online email which OMG now I remember what this was *sheesh ~ whew good thing my brain kicked in reminding me what it was ~ SEE as I was telling Sady in a comment of her blog post how many have those “but first” *giggling* anyhooo first let me apologize to the bloggers that I do follow that I have been so lax in checking my SL email where their blog posts come to me and finally I checked it was like overflowing…not sure of what you all do with SL/RL emails but I do try to keep some separated with the exceptions of offline messages and a couple others as the rest goes to my SL email account I set up more to catch overflow and all the blog posts that I do follow ~ honestly I do try to either like and/or like & comment on those as I do have several favorites that I enjoy readying like Sady’s, Moz just to name a couple.  Most of the bloggers work hard creating scenes, explaining clothes and such that they deserve comments or likes ~ plus there are some that are very awe-inspiring that I love looking at like Kess Crystal who creates some amazing scenes…anyway am setting goals for next year that I will tell you about later…thats about it since RL is grabbing me again and tomorrow I have to get a CRT scan on my face or rather my sinuses as am not looking forward to that one bit…cya soon ~ hugzz ♥♥

Jazz…

Jazz

I went wandering around today at Yasminia a really cute town that has some interesting shops like a yummy bakery where the cakes made my mouth water along with a Jazz club that I found around the back of the bakery where there were some tables and chairs as well as a nice outdoor stage set up ~ sadly no one was performing or even around to see my latest outfit from I.M. Collection ~ this collection called “Outlander” is all separates that you can mix/match from the jacket, skirt, boots and one thing that is missing is the top that you can wear under the jacket ~ each item comes in matching colors besides the black there is Red, Purple, Orange, Green, and Yellow…now I want to turn around to show you the detail that went into this skirt…

Jazz1.png
wearing the Outlander jacket & skirt by I.M. Collection 

The wraparound belt comes to meet in the back with that great zipper showing you the care that went into creating this ~ I am dating myself when I remember having at least one plaid skirt in my closet for school…for me, it was always a green/black combo or blue/black that I would choose ~ this Outlander collection by I.M. Collection will be at Designer Showcase all month starting tomorrow and make sure you try on the demo’s that the creator has provided ♥  Just an added comment that has me annoyed ~ owners of groups might not have specific rules of what can or cannot be discussed and for the most part members respect that you just don’t discuss or show images that are not from that store or location…lately am seeing total disregard with group members stating well its not in the rules or group charter…seriously that is so rude and so disrespectful ~ yet its like that bully mentality if you speak up to defend you are pasted as this meanie with no one wanting to step up ~ that is upsetting ~

wondering…

Waiting

Taking a break from wandering around this really cool city of  SL Amsterdam am noticing more and more residents have bicycles ~ for me, that is cool to not depend on a car as your only mode of transportation ~ I also wonder about the power of all this electronic technology has over us ~ two-thirds of the entire world owns a cell phone, and forty-three percent own computers ~ that is just staggering to me and each of us have grown accustomed to this electronic technology…what would happen if someone or a group of someone was super smart and brought down the entire internet ~ completely crashed it to the point it would take weeks, months to rebuild ~ scary thought huh ♥  would send most of us back to the dark ages where you have to fall back to writing letters, those that had landlines possibly could call and talk to others just to mention ~ and you would not be able to automatically see the gorgeous outfit am wearing by *B.D.R* either ~ Cameron Vasiliov owner of Beautiful Dirty and Rich has created Havana consisting of top and skirt ~ and yes close up is right below♥

Waiting1
wearing top “Havana” by *B.D.R.* and unisex necklace “Malek” by Venge

Yes I did change colors to show you this also comes with another fabulous hud made up of 20 different lace colors/patterns for both top and skirt that you can mix/match color choices ~ some of the patterns will give you a little more modest look ~ the great thing about Havana is this is the group gift ~ so for group members its FREE as well as there is no Group fee either ~ a very win/win when you go and look at what other items are at the store ♥ the necklace am wearing is first unisex by Venge called “Malek” that is being offered at the Men’s Hipster event ~ this event last till Sept 16th and Venge has also provided a very nice choice of gold/silver along with a hud of 12 different gemstone options ~ it is copy and modifiable, which I like to make my necklaces at times longer~ Rides to all will be below ~ oh btw that scenario I described was the premise for James Patterson’s book “The President is Missing” ~ love his book and this was by far one of his scarier ones ~ not horror but makes you truly think ♥

standing tall…

Looking

Thinking back and remembering all the times that things either knocked me down, blocked my way I just could not crumble ~ not a bravo I was a single Mom and had to keep going my child was depending on me ~ that is how I think of all the single Mothers out there that just stand tall because no matter what comes in your path do not give up ♥ Here I am standing in front of this anchor and those thoughts just whooshed into my tiny brain hehehe ~ exploring again at Achill Island wearing Sn@tch’s latest items ~ the island is made up of rocky cliffs and gorgeous views ~ my outfit is made up of new hair “Kaira” with nice bottles of color choices with me choosing a blondish color from the “Naturals“, the crisscross top Chita has a gorgeous hud of colors and patterns that I have shown off in past blog posts ~

LookatA
wearing Sn@tch Kaira hair, Chita halter top, and the Boston Mini Skirt 

Giving you a better look at the Boston Mini skirt that is Velvet texture also has you see comes with a hud of various colors ~ I will give huge kudos to designers that create these Huds giving the customers more bang for their buck ♥  Yes you might pay a little more or maybe not as Sn@tch has always provided affordable clothing ~ btw I know have talked about crediting pose makers, which at times is sad when I see them being ignored ~ I will confess there have been couple moments that yes am guilty not saying the pose was from the chair or prop or forgot entirely ~ Image Essentials has come out with a new pose series called “Polished” made up of 5 poses w/mirrors and will be available at Designer Showcase starting Sept 5th ~ start making your list for September ♥ Sn@tch items are ready for you at the store AND remember there is a new “fish for this” outfit that I will be showing you later ~ Rides are below♥♥

beach day…

Relaxing...

Yesterday Dena and I finally got together and decided to escape to the beach to enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer ~ exploring a place called Baja Cove part of the Baja Norte sims was fun with the landscaping and sounds of the surf made the entire outing enjoyable…walking around wore us out so we pulled out the umbrella and picnic stuff and found a nice quiet place by the water to rest, relax and just enjoy the day…yes had to bring my book to finish up reading the latest James PattersonTexas Ranger” ~ am a huge fan of his ~ while I read Dena enjoys an ice cold glass of white wine that we brought…as we sit and enjoy listening to the ocean waves am going to also give you a closer look at one of 7 Deadly s[K]ins called Brooklyn

beachbabe

This is the freckled version of Brooklyn in Pineapple and wearing it browless as I do love my Lurid brows ~ younger I used to get freckles and freckles during the summer and got teased by the “mean girls” ~ for me it was no biggie as I was such a beach person I didn’t mind the freckles or the nose peeling even though I wore sunscreen and zinc oxide on nose and lips ~ was my badge to show everyone where I spent my summers in the outdoors enjoying the surf and sand ~ Izara Zuta creator/owner of 7 Deadly s[K]ins gives just enough of a smattering of freckles to look just perfect ♥  This gorgeous skin has 3 versions regular, blushing and freckled so please try a demo on to see how they will look on you ~ you can find Brooklyn at the Blush event till the 24th of September ~ rides will be below ~ Enjoy ♥♥

bowling…

Bowling

I wonder if those that are new ask whats to do besides shopping ~ it must seem strange to see all these events and no one is telling you what else there is to SL ~ but there is SO MUCH MORE besides shopping ~ all the clubs that play live music at various times, there are lands to be explored and hey there is BOWLING to play *giggling* Yes you can bowl to your hearts content for FREE ~ my friend and I went to the Bazzar Fantasy Bowling Alley and had a blast ~ not a super bowler but all the same it was fun ~ plus I got to show off my latest mix/match of items from Sn@tch ~ buying all those clothes you need to go somewhere so others can see and be seen ~ with exceptions of the bracelet, necklace and shoes are all from Sn@tch and I love how it all came together…

BowlingA

Now this is a better shot that you can see everything I wanna point out to you as I start from the hair called “Lacey” which comes in a variety of colors ~ moving down to that to the top “Donna” that comes with a great hud of prints & solids ~ ooops forgot all about the Idol shades that also have a good variety of colors as well ~now we are down to the “Sooyoung Skinny Jeans” that yes have a great hud also…the designer of Sn@tch Ivey does a tremendous job creating huds of various textures, patterns and such for her clothes & hair…it is always a treat to open up her latest blogger box and see all the goodies ~ plus do not forget Sn@tch has fishing, lucky letters along with a huge variety of items for you to try on ~ also like the fact of the great huds that keep clothing looking fresh ♥  Sn@tch is also on Marketplace  along with her huge Main Store  ~ for me it is nice to see a store that has been around for years still here ♥♥ Enjoy…

Look at me…

See Me

See me…as a blogger and showing off items like earrings, necklaces, etc. I like using close-ups so you are able to see the details ~ now people tease me that at times am hiding my horns welp now you can see them hehehe ~ the Minotaur horns are part of Eclectica gacha’s ~ am wearing one of the “Commons” ~ the Sunglasses ‘Cafe Life‘ is also from Eclectica ~ not as a gacha but there are various versions that you can purchase♥ The Abysal Seraph earrings by Venge come as a set w/3 different versions ~ this one is “Toxic” and you can see this very interesting and unique Igno Pin by Clemmm ~

Selfie1.png

I changed up earrings to show you the UV pair by Venge ~ really unique along with the detail is spot on ♥  Also changed my necklace to show off the “Anchor-skull-necklace by UNDERTIED ~ that comes with a hud to change the color of the skull and eyes ♥ Each vendor that I have shown you also have more interesting and unique items ~ even just walking around the event grounds is an experience ~ you only have 6 more days to go and explore as it ends on the 26th ~ right now am going to go back and window shop as there are some really great items that have been marked special just for the LoveFest

Kudos to all the Designers/Creators who are making this year’s LoveFest a big success ~ also thank those that are giving me the opportunity as well ♥♥ Rides to LoveFest, Venge, Undertied, Eclectica, and Clemmm

Schoolmarm

It is back to school week for some of those lucky ooops unlucky children ~ maybe the parents are lucky as I remember my Mom enjoying the peaceful hours that we were away ~ our school year never started till the day after Labor Day it is so surprising to learn where I am living now that school started this week ~ do I look the part of a schoolmarm teaching in a very posh upper school?  Ruler in hand, pencil in my mouth all I need are students to teach ~ and to make this outfit even better it is actually FREE ~ there are just one catch hehehe and that is you have to fish for it at Sn@tch ~ if you have a 7d’s fishing rod no need for bait just head over to Sn@tch cast out and enjoy bringing up different items 21 in all ~ the hair, pearl necklace, top, skirt, stockings and shoes ~ let me show you the entire collection

Sn@tch Fish 4 This-See Me After Class Vendor Ad SM

Again the fishing is free and if you do not have a 7d’s pole you can get one for 100L and fish for as long as you want ~ usually, I just set up the cast automatically and then enjoy either working on inventory or talking to friends ~ good luck ♥ Here is your RIDE…this was shot at HardKnock School with the pose series City Girl by Moment
