afternoon delight…

Down on the Farm
The field is all plowed, animals have gathered around my sexy hubby and me as we enjoy a moment…this is what I truly love about SL that you can one minute be frolicking in snow ~ the next moment you can be on a gorgeous beach or like Brutus and I sitting on a farm surrounded by farm animals…I can repeat and repeat this saying over and over but after 10 years am still enjoying myself ~ oh there have been a lot of ups and downs especially in the past couple days ~ my fingers are crossed they will soon get resolved so I can stop tearing my hair out and screaming in four-letter frustration…am sure my bestie and hubby will also be glad so I will stop venting over and over on this as they both have been patient in letting me truly rage ~ anyway even with that I love being a long time resident of Second Life ~ the poses have truly gotten better, the clothing makes me wish my RL clothes would fit just as well hehehe ~ that is something that most of us wish ♥ btw that billy goat is looking rather hungry he just better stay on that hay bale and not jump over to start chomping on my clothes or whatever he has got his eye on…best that I get back to that moment as Brutus and I do not see each other for very long ~ take care and again thank you for sticking around it is very appreciated ~just remember to take a moment to your self ~ hugzz♥♥

winter time…

Winter
The air is always crisp and clean and with the snow falling the only noise is the crunch of your boots as you walk ~ Winter time is my favorite season especially when it starts snowing that soft fluffy kind that I grew to love living in Colorado…It is cold yet you dress for it in layers and layers, not like summer time when you can only take so much off and still it’s hot and humid ♥  One thing about snow that I do dislike and that is shoveling it ~ YUCK as I laugh remembering would rather pay someone to do ~ its like vacuuming another task am not fond of and yes I just might pay to have it done hehehe ~ today’s outfit is truly a little this & that ~ the sweater is a Marketplace find that has a promo of 99L and has a terrific hud to keep it fresh looking ~ the tights are something I have had forever in my inventory by Sweet Tea ~ ooops the hair is a gift card pressie from hubby by NO.MATCH ~ one of my favorite hair designers ~ just look at the credits and thanks for sticking around everyone ~ love all your comments and especially all the congrats on my wedding ~ means so much to me when I see a comment that someone actually took time to write ~ hugzz everyone and please remember to be kind to yourself and others ♥♥

friends…

Friends
Holidays to me mean friends and family ~ mostly friends in my situation as the family not so much hmmm maybe need to rephrase that family not at all…too long a story and let’s just say my family and I parted after my Mom passed away, which does happen when your parents truly hold the family together…November marked the anniversary  where I am living a year and can truly say I love it here living with my best girlfriend  that have known since high school and her husband ~ truly great to have a friend like her in my life as both have truly been a real blessing ~ her nagging me to finally make Dr. appointments to see what’s going on with me ~ not that I am looking forward to having such evasive surgery on my nose *2 hour procedure that when the Dr. explained it to me I seriously cringed ~ especially telling me a little slip of this instrument close to my eye and brain I am like OMG do not tell me that shit just have steady hands, no drinking the night before you and will start saying prayers that it goes fine…who tells their patients that gawd along with saying when asked about pain afterward “oh yes there will be horrible pain but we got good drugs for you” just another FYI that you could have kept to yourself…my girlfriend and her hubby said not to worry as I would be fine ~ for my SL friends I have also been blessed especially with my bestie Dena who lets me rant about RL stuff and cheers me up when am down ~ think without her at times my SL would look on the grey side and not full of color ~ this year am so grateful to another fantastic Christmas with my friends *RL & SL* ~ Dena and I truly want to tell each of you

MERRY CHRISTMAS ♥

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 ♥♥

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 ♥♥

how did we…

How did we

ummm am not sure how we ended up with packages squished behind our backs, just know bestie Dena and I do get ourselves in some predicaments *giggling* speaking of which, Dena was scrolling through the archives and was mentioning something that I realized her and I have known each other for 3 years ~ WOW that has to be a milestone since I will admit honestly to the fact that I can count on my longtime female friends on one hand…most seem to just fade away or because am not truly known for being politically correct will say what’s on my mind and poof have offended and am off their friends list ~ oh Dena and I have had our ups and downs yet we have survived as truly best friends do ~ we know each others RL history on things, we voice whenever possible because her and I at times will get the giggles and it just doesn’t come across in text that you are laughing so hard or that tone when you go “seriously”…we discovered mesh bodies together that was a totally new experience for both of us since we were so clueless on how to even put it on us hehehe, we can both calm each other down when one of us has screwed up our head or something that we need one another to figure out the answers…same with mesh heads even though Dena did get hers before me and talked me through the process, which I thank her for a lot ~ at times am sure her eyes roll back into her head with my actions or things I have said as again my mouth at times has no filter ~ looking at the above pic am sure we thought we were trying to figure out how to carry all those boxes, or possibly we were just being us in a silly moment that best friends have ~ gotta say am so grateful for her being my bestie and am wishing each of you find or have that bestie to share and make memories in SL ♥♥ till next time be kinder to yourself as you are the most important person in your life…

hair I got…

Vanity Gift @Hair Fair

My list in hand I went hair shopping ~ yes I did have a budget that once I spent that was it…Bestie Dena can tell you that I tend to go crazy at the Hair Fair as we are talking double digits hair purchases *giggling* Absolutely loving being introduced to new hair stores, new styles and knowing am doing something good since Hair Stores are donating at least 15% of their profits to Wigs for Kids♥♥ Let me stop babbling and start talking about the hair ~ the first one is the gift from Vanity called “Goldfinger” and comes with a full hud ~ this is a stunning hair and will recommend you wear a hairbase with it…

HairF2.png
LiquidMoon Designs gift

I just love getting gifts and LiquidMoon had one for you as well ~ this is called LARA winks ~ also with a full texture color hud and what is unique about LiquidMoon is each hair comes with a full-color hud so there is no decision on what color you do have to purchase ♥

HairF3
Astrology ~ Jillian 

This is a fun wild color hair as you can see I did go to the extreme with the colors just to show you the “Color Fun” pack that I purchased.  There is a wide range of colors and a little more sedate with different color streaks inside this pack along with you can choose other color choices ~ you can make the right one color and the left another color giving you some very interesting color combos…That’s just a little of what I went crazy and got yesterday hehehe ~ Now reminder the Hair Fair will be open till Oct 6th about 2 weeks left ~ if you are worried about the lag I went at different times and if you don’t dress to the nines it was not as bad as I thought plus you could fly around…funny most females were walking about bald like I was as I being wishy-washy had to try on the demo that in a dumb move deleted that specific demo so had to grab another to make my mind up♥

This is me…

ThisIsMe

Yes, this is me looking all sleek and sexy ~ woo hoo ~ it is also due to that uber sexy outfit Riley Bodysuit by WellMade that puts it over the top of sexiness…and the hair “Caprice” by Tableau Vivant that for me just needed some bangs, which I grabbed from one of my Sintiklia hairs to finish the look, oh not to forget the sunglasses by HaysurizaTokyo Eyes” giving me that “look”…course I also have to give credit to the pose “Leaning” by FoxCity as we know without poses all of us would just be standing like scarecrows hehehe ~ WellMade has included a hud with colors and patterns for you to play with giving this a totally different look ~ I stuck with black on black to show you all the detail the creator has been able to create ~ plus I love the color black am not sure why but when I look at my RL closet there are so many t-shirts/shorts/pants that are black am basically boring in my choice of colors ♥  back to this sexy bodysuit by WellMade there will be a demo for you to try on and you can see how it will look ~ same with those sunglasses by Haysuriza come with 6 different color changes and some other interesting aspect to these glasses ~ the designer has even put a demo for you to try them on ~ still you have half the month left to wander over to Designer Showcase and look at all the designers and their items ~ rides are below ~ ENJOY ♥

Carefree…

Carefree
The first day of August and feeling so carefree ~ am so not a drama mama rather explore, listen to some great music that a lot of sims like Calas have on their stream, work on inventory anything but listen to negativity…Keeping busy that when I go into a group possibly to ask or inquire about something and see this bickering between group members I just will X out of the group chat ~ If you have a question in a group don’t be a total azzhole if someone doesn’t answer right away as we all might be busy at that moment or there are moments that people just do not feel the need to answer as I have seen happen but if it happens so be it there is no need to get snarky or rude only causes more drama to the point who wants or needs to see that ~ There was a great questionnaire done by Kess Crystal geared towards the blogging community that asked how well others support one another ~ am not sure of my exact answer on that and for the most part I know which bloggers, I can go to and ask and also know that at times some blogger groups for me seem a tad bit cliquish♥ Hey am being maybe a tad blunt but it does appear that way but will not mention names or groups ♥  speaking of groups the dress “Desert” is the latest group gift of Yeliz that I belong to ~ love their style, afforadability along with great fit ~ Am also still wearing 7 Deadly s[K]ins group gift too without the makeup so you can see what a great skin Bloom is ~

Aug Group Gift
Bloom is gorgeous as you see a light smattering of freckles across the nose that appeals to me ~ the tone I have chosen is Pineapple little tan that I like wearing during summer times.  For me, this is a great perk in becoming group members whether it is for a free skin each month or a fabulous dress outweighs the group fees ~BTW, the group fee for 7 Deadly s[K]ins is FREE for the next 24hours so better HURRY and don’t miss this♥  Alright wanted to bring up something I am being asked about my images specifically the skies and that is windlights ~ once I discovered them I was in all my glory, then, even more, when I discovered Jay Battlescars windlights that are truly fantastic!  Besides the rides to the stores, I will give you the link to all his windlights ~ tip watch the video because the link he gives you he does address how to go about the issues ~ again will leave you with a quote ~ hugzz

wine & cheese…

posh afternoon

My newest sponsor B.D.R. (Beautiful, Dirty, Rich) came out with a really cute outfit that once I put it on I felt again posh and grabbed my friend to head over to sip on wine and nosh on some really expensive cheeses…the best place to try different glasses of wine is my favorite winery “Copperfield Estate & Winery ~ as you can see above showing off B.D.R. newest romper called “Daydreams” that comes in solids and crochet textures. When you get here make sure you walk from the front door straight back to sample all the different Copperfield wines and appetizers as they are such a great variety.  Even learning about 2 of the most expensive cheeses like the Serbian Donkey cheese that if you could purchase in the USA it would cost 1,000 a pound ~ woah now that is pricey but I did google it and truly does exist…

Daydream1a
Crochet version

oh yes, was mentioning another expensive cheese is produced in Sweden from Moose Milk that would cost you $500 a pound to purchase ~ and there is only one place that sells it as well it is not readily available.  What is available for you is this adorable romper that has a fantastic hud of solids and crochet textures to keep this Daydream romper looking fresh ~ you can also purchase the boots ~ prices for both are so reasonable actually and being honest the prices for that romper is 100L YES that is basically such a bargain I was amazed and shocked at the quality and detail are perfect.  I will be back to show you so much more from all my sponsors you need to stick around and remember SHOW A LITTLE KINDNESS to yourself and to others ~ hugzz ♥♥
