Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad’s Out There!

Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad's Out There!

I want to dedicate this post to all the great Fathers out there, my own Dad included! I’m very lucky to still have both of my parents with me and I’m thankful each and every day for it! Dad has always been there for me! He’s seen me through the bad times and the worse times. He’s always been my fixer! It’s like he could always fix anything for me, whether it was something physical like a bicycle or some sort of trouble that only listening can help. He may not always understand me, but he always has the best intentions! I do wish he’d learn though, the one thing he always says to me if I start to get mad at something is, ‘Well, don’t get excited!’! I’ve told him, over and over again, that those words have NEVER worked to calm someone down and actually it only makes it worse! But, he continues to say it and I keep falling into the trap of getting more mad! 😀 I guess some things will never change! But, that’s not a bad thing, because we laugh at it after and I call him a B*****d and he calls me a B***h, and all is good again! I love my Dad, I’ll always feel like Daddy’s little girl, no matter how old I am!

I’ll start with the ‘Quinn’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] that I’m wearing here! This is from the Bayalage pack, which has 30 textures to choose from, like all packs from [KoKoLoReS]. I know I’m not blonde very often but I fell in love with this one! ‘Quinn’ is on sale now at the June round of Hair O Logy, which runs until June 30.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is the latest group gift and it’s beautiful in it’s simplicity! There’s just not enough love in this world, that’s one thing I know! The group is 100L$ to join, but there’s new group gifts released regularly, so it’s a very good deal!

The ‘Luma’ Tube Top from Just BECAUSE is available at the current round of Collabor88! I couldn’t resist the fatpack, so I’ll be wearing it regularly!

The ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’ from Addams are going to be my go to shorts for the summer! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies and also come in standard sizes.

The Choker(B) is from C L A Vv. and part of the ‘My Edgy Look’ gacha set available now at Kustom9.

The whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Which is rebranding and will be Avada. I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, too!

The manly pose is from Le Poppycock! I really like male poses, women’s poses never seem to have this pensive look!

I think I’ve got a thing with this little church at The Last Forever! I love this stretch of road and with this windlight it’s kind of eerie!

I Wish I Could……

I Wish I Could……

There are a few things in life that I really wish I could do! I know everyone has skills and talents that are unique to each them, that’s part of what makes a person who they are, and I do have some! I know I’m a pretty good baker, at least no one gets sick from eating what I bake, haven’t yet anyway! I will admit to being able to grow things! And no I don’t mean hair! Every spring I get the greenhouse going with all the seedlings I start for the coming growing season. I had less plants than usual this year, but there have been a few times that the greenhouse is just exploding with all kinds of greenery! I used to be able to drive a truck with 18 gears, effortlessly, and maneuver the behemoth wherever I needed to! I enjoyed my years driving the big trucks, I still miss it but I miss the actual driving more than the lifestyle that goes with it! I probably have a few more, I think we all have things we do well that we don’t think is a skill, we take it for granted and assume that anybody could do these things, but not everyone can conquer certain things. I wish I could play a musical instrument. I don’t care which one, I’ve tried a few in my younger years and could never get past the stage of people yelling, ‘Oh my Gawd, make it stop!’. I wish I could dance! In Second Life I’m a really good dancer, and I enjoy doing it, but in real life my answer to an invitation to dance is usually the line from ‘Willard’ in ‘Footloose’! “I drink better than I dance!”. That’s not to say I haven’t danced, I have but I think I look a lot like C3PO from Star Wars busting a move! I’ve always wanted to be able to draw and paint. My Mum used to paint in acrylics and do pen and ink drawings, and she was so good! Her prairie landscapes were incredible, but it’s been many years since she’s picked up a paint brush. I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. I’ve tried, but I just don’t have what it takes. I look at very artistic and creative people and they have hands that prove their artistry. The long slender fingers that move with little effort to create their art form. Me? I have stiff hands and fingers that holds a pencil or pen in a death grip and I work hard to sign my name so it doesn’t look like I’m in Grade 2! I’m happy with my abilities and I like to think that I could do anything if I try hard enough, but I do know that doing something and doing it well are two different things!

I’ve always been a big fan of colours from nature like greens, browns, and golds, but I seem to have taken a liking to pinks, lately! Stories&Co. by Flowey has released the ‘Ginny’ Dress and this pink gingham jumped out at me and I couldn’t resist it! This strapless dress is form fitting showing off nice curves and lots of leg! I really like how the bodice is quite high to fully cover ‘my girls’ so I have no worries about slipping out of it while moving around! The ‘Ginny’Dress comes in fifteen colours and is fitted for the Belleza, SLink and Maitreya mesh bodies. It’s available now at the June round of Collabor88!

The June round of HairOlogy is on and the gorgeous ‘Franceska’ hair from Analog Dog is a must have! The gentle curls and generous bangs frame the face beautifully and the high ponytail adds a bit of lightheartedness! It’s 50% off for the duration of the event so it’s a real steal!! This is from the blacks pack.

The ‘Ribbon Choker’ is one of my favourites from !nfinity! This is the gold tone and it’s HUD driven with seven ribbon colours and it’s scripted for resize! I love the infinity symbol!

The ‘Lilla’ glasses in gold are from ‘Air‘! The detailing is incredible and they’re a complete work of art!!

If you look down at my hand you’ll see a little daisy! This is from the ‘Daisy and Fly’ ring set from Meva! It’s a group gift right now and nothing says summer like a daisy! Well, flies do too, but not in the same way! 😀 Like all creations from Mea Carnell of Meva, the ‘devil is in the details’! The rings come in gold and silver, are fitted for the Maitreya bento hands, and can be worn independently!

My eyes are the ‘Steampunk Eyes’,black Omega applier from .Arise..

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(which will be renamed ‘Avada’ shortly). The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Daisy’ female pose set from Diesel Works.

I’m at Aloha Beach for this shot! It’s a pretty view from the boardwalk, here!

A Quiet Day

A Quiet Day

I’ve got lots going on in this post, so I’ll get started! First off, the June round of Collabor88 has begun and Ingenue has released another ‘must have’ pair of shoes! The ‘Lisbet Heels’ are fitted for the SLink and Maitreya mid foot and come in a dozen colours, all of them perfect for those summertime outfits! The chunky heel and the smooth lines of the straps really call attention to pretty legs and ankles!

The June round of The Avenue is on and Raindale has updated one of the earliest releases! The ‘Larimer’ set has been redone with added textures and animations for the cushions, the table and decor have been completely revamped, and the wall art now has five pictures to choose from! There’s two versions of the floor cushions so you can either change their colour via drop down menu or with a a HUD(10 colours for all) and the single cushion has 15 animations and the stacked cushions have 25, the light is on/off on touch, and the table and decor comes linked together for easy decorating or separately. The Avenue runs until June 20. Also from Raindale is the Apple Basket, one of my favourite things to have around, and the tea cup from the ‘Sugarvale’ gacha set! I always like to have a cup of something hot close by when I’m relaxing! Both of those items are available at the Raindale main store.

I want to take a second to bring your attention to a piece of art that I just had to have! While wandering around ‘The Last Forever‘ I took notice of an incredibly unique sculpture and after a quick check in edit mode I found out it was created by Silas Merlin! I wanted to see more from him, so I made a trip to ‘The Silas Gallery‘ and fell in love with his work! I brought home ‘Marrakech’, it’s the kitty on the wall for anyone not sure where to look, and I think it’s perfect for my little abode! I then made my way to the June round of ‘The Chapter Four‘ and played his latest gacha, the ‘Eerie Crew’ gacha! It consists of ten commons and one RARE sculpture, all showing Silas’s incredible talent!

Also in this shot is the RARE ‘Big Broadcast Radio’ from the Vintage Radios gacha set from KraftWork! It comes with two versions, one is a completely operable radio and the other is for decor only!

The row of books in front of the radio is from Balaclava and was on sale for Fifty Linden Friday this past week. It’s texture change with different genres of books, I’m into ‘new age’ right now!

The big pillow on the right is the ‘patchwork pillow’ from [we’re CLOSED]! It’s a group gift so it’s your for the taking if you’re a group member! The group is 250L$ to join, but it’s worth it!! There’s about 10 gifts there right now and they’re all very good quality!

I made quite a few purchases at Collabor88 when I was there! I was so shocked to get in so early in the round that I celebrated with buying lots! The ‘potted palm’ is part of the ‘Natural Habitat’ set of house plants from dust bunny! I just got the fatpack, and completely avoided the dilemma of which one to get! The fatpack has five really great house plants, and I can’t kill any of them with lack of water! 🙂

The ‘Feline Jeans Mini’ in navy is from Mimikri! It’s a perfect fit on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, as you can see. It’s also fitted for the SLink mesh bodies!

My home is the JAC Boat Shack from Redgrave. I keep the sun out with the Carriage Blinds from ‘The Carriage’ gacha set from Scarlett Creative.

As always, I’m wearing the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(soon to be ‘Avada’) on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from Pose Set 86 from Overlow Poses.
