Don’t be afraid to lose control
Yes I know what’s on your mind

Waiting for Trouble

Waiting for trouble 1024.png

Everyone believed her to be so innocent. She was the good one. Never got into trouble. Never caused a fuss. Truth is, she had it rough just like the next person. However, everyone knows that sometimes it can be a little fun just waiting for trouble. Tonight was one of those nights. The air was crisp and cut against her skin. She drew the last drag from her cigarette and closed her eyes. The night had just begun.

Remember that Hustle and bustle I mentioned, yep that’s me. While I truly do want to slow down a bit, life loves to throw curve balls at you. There is always something going on in my life. Whether is things around the farm, chasing kids around, blogging, Deco’ing ;P LOL… Not complaing a bit. I wouldn’t change my life for anything in this world. RL or SL. Even if it does make me a bit tired at times.

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Embrace 2018

Happy New  Year’s Eve Loves! ❤ So, I’ll just say it, yesterday was a roller coaster of emotions for me. I had to make some hard decisions but in the end, I found it will be best for both parties. All day I sat and was on the edge of regret until finally my voice of reason and rock helped me realize it is and was for the best. I think at one point of another, we all are faced with some tough decisions. The most important thing we can do with them is accept what we decide, learn from it, and grow.

I really don’t want to turn this into a “Resolution” type blog, but I do want to write down some goals I have in mind. First of all, Many people have been telling me to write more. While I love my quotes and songs ( I don’t see them completely disappearing LOL), I have missed just writing about what ever I want. That was one of the reasons I started blogging: To be able to express and ramble about what I want…Of course while showing some pretty awesome stuff! 😉  So… Lucky for you! Y’all get to jump in my head from time to time and probably more often than you want. HAHA.

Secondly, I want to be able to devote myself a little more to what I am passionate about. Whether it be certain brands I work with, all the way to just spending a little more time with those I care about. I have been feeling very stretched lately and as a result, I feel like it as reflected on my creativity. People will say, “What are you talking about? You are great. Your work is amazing. Don’t be hard on yourself” None of this is the case guys. It is simply that in order to grow (which we all do 😉 ) you have to evaluate yourself and decide what it is you want and what you can have a little less of, while at the same time taking on new challenges.

Last but not least, I want to have fun and embrace what ever it may be the 2018 has to offer. I am excited to see where it looks like I am being lead to but we shall see 😉 Again, lucky for you guys, you get to enjoy the ride with me. If so you choose. lol So thank you to all of you, the new and old that have been apart of this journey with me. You all are what makes this so much fun for me.

Happy New Year and Embrace 2018!

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Hennessy Night

forget champange 1024.png

It was one of those days where champagne just wasn’t gonna cut it. Wine didn’t seem to help either when normally it was just enough to take the edge off. Tonight was a hard stuff night. Crown was her drink of choice but tonight she wanted something a little more smooth to her pallet. Tonight was a Hennessy night.

Reaching the end of the hall, standing in front of the door she closed her eyes and inhaled deep. His cologne lingered, making her stomach knot in all the right ways. Maybe it was to be more than just a brandy kind of night.

The First Noel

I had a really hard time naming this blog, it’s medieval, kind of Christmas and nothing really popped out to me. Then I heard Pentatonix’s version of The First Noel and decided it fit pretty well. I was having a hard time with this entire blog, or what lead up to it I should say. I scoured through my list of items from designers I am fortunate enough to blog officially for and nothing jumped out at me. That’s when I realized it might be time to do one for me. LootBox opened and I can’t remember what it was I went looking for originally but then my eyes landed on the gacha from Belle Epoque and I jumped with excitement. I’d been waiting for this set to come into play. I’m a gacha addict, I can admit that fully.

I had just played my heart out to win the set that I really wanted from Belle Epoque in PocketGacha when she released the ad for this dress. I about died, I really think she might be trying to kill me. The Ladies and Servant gacha is available right now at LootBox until January 20 and you can win 33 commons and two rare. What I like about LootBox is that when you win the rare you don’t just win one item, you win 3. It is a unique event.

When I saw this stunning hair from Limerence, available at LootBox as well, I knew it would be perfect for this dress. 8 commons and one rare can be yours.

Jian is also at LootBox with these adorable Kitsunes. This set includes 20 commons and 2 rares. The rares come with a companion, a wanderer, and a neck sitter.

Today a chose a lovely skin from 7 Deadly Skins which is available right now at Cosmetic Fair. I love 7 Deadly Skins, all of her skins, no matter what head they are based on, they are Omega compatible and come with both head and body appliers. This skin box comes with 13 tones as well as a separate snowflake version in 4 tones and an optional shape for purchase. This skin and shape are based on the LAQ Nyx MoCap head, however, I am sharing it on the LAQ Neve MoCap head which is only 500L until December 24 and then it goes up to the regular price of 5000L. I highly recommend getting this head while it’s on sale, you’ll kick yourself otherwise.

White Christmas

I just have to state that this is the biggest decor blog I have ever done and I am pretty proud with how it turned out. That being said, White Christmas has been one of my favorite songs for as long as I can remember. I saw the movie for the first time when I was about 13 and discovered at that time it was my mom’s absolute favorite movie as well. There isn’t a Christmas that goes by now that we don’t throw it in the Blu-Ray player and watch it, my kids love it too. It is a timeless classic and I am so glad it is there to help me make memories with my kids.

PocketGacha, if you haven’t heard of this or used this what have you been doing? Living under a rock? PocketGacha is the new way to play gacha. Every month on the 15th at 7 am you attach your HUD, where ever you are, give it permissions and start playing. Some designers even give you the option of buying the fatpack without playing! This is the most innovative gacha system I have ever seen and I love it.

This month Apple Fall has some offerings for the PocketGacha this month, the first gacha that he has done in 3 years I think I heard the rumor was, I don’t know how true that is but it’s what I heard. This set is so amazing I had to play to win. It includes 2 rares and 8 commons. The truck and wrought iron chair are the rares and OMG that truck is just awesome.

Mesh India also has a lovely set of winter decor in PocketGacha, there is 5 commons and one rare to win in this set.

I needed some stuff to complete my scene and I had heard there was a couple of cute gachas over at The Chapter Four. Bee Designs has a super cute snowman gacha and I found all the yummy treats I could ever need from SESE.

I’m still wearing my LAQ Scarlet MoCap head, I am genuinely in love with this head. I do wish there were more options for animations but other than that I have no complaints. I did discover something last night, the eyes that come with the head are system eyes and simply require an alpha, I’ve gotten so use to mesh eyes it didn’t dawn on me. So I alphaed my eyes out, added my Catwa unrigged eyes and voila now I can wear any Catwa eye applier I want! I chose a stunning set of eyes from LOTUS and yes they are in PocketGacha this month.

Ever run into someone and just know where they are coming from? This beautiful lady right here has been around for a while. We’ve had some ups and downs, a few twists and turns but made our way back. She’s been a mentor from the beginning with my blogging and I’ve missed her input with a few posts I’ve done. She has brought a lot of smiles as of late to me and I don’t see them fading anytime soon. Thank you for the morning coffees, biscuits and bagels, Ry. Oh, and those longggggg girl chats too 😉

Africa

When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, a friend of mine took me to see Styx and Toto in concert. At 21 years old that was the coolest concert I’d ever been to and I had so much fun even at 4 months pregnant. It was a cool September night 18 years ago and I will never forget how much fun that night was. This song has always been one of my favorites, and when I got the rare item from Belle Epoque I knew exactly what I was going to do.

First, this dress! From the moment I saw the ad on Facebook, I knew I had to have it. It is just absolutely stunning. This rare dress comes with a color change HUD with 6 textures built in. It is just truly a masterpiece and I’m so glad I won it from PocketGacha. Haven’t heard of that? Well, you get a free HUD from the Marketplace or any of the participating store, then you go home. That’s it. The day it opens you add your HUD, and play the gacha machines built into the HUD, no trying to TP into packed sims, no lag, just the privacy and comfort of your own home.

This stunning hair is also from PocketGacha and is from Besom, three hairstyles can be yours by playing. The Essentials pack on each hair is the rare item with the regular color HUDs being the commons. Only 75L a pull to win these amazing hairs.

I cannot stay away from Foxcity and the absolutely amazing poses she creates, this round of Tres Chic brings two new pose sets and when you buy the greedy pack you get projectors as well that give you lines and dots, I chose not to use them because they didn’t really suit the look of this blog but the poses were exactly what I needed.

This is the freckled version with no brows shown on Catwa Catya mesh head.
