Great Ideas

Great Ideas

The idea to make a machine that slices a loaf of bread was a great idea. The day I decided to cut off an electrical wire with a pair of pliers, without shutting the breaker off…..not so much. Indoor plumbing was an idea that was pure genius. The time my sister said, ‘Hey, lets crawl up the bale elevator’, wasn’t. One broken leg and much crying ensued, but then, I was only 6. 😀 Whoever had the idea for an automatic washing machine was pretty darn smart. When Dad said to me, ‘Hang on to that board while I sand it’, I should have been smart enough to see this coming and walked away! But instead I got my hand sanded with a belt sander….good idea? Nope…not even close. What I’m getting at here is that there are so many people that have great ideas, and my family and I are more like a Jackass movie!! It’s my own fault, really. I’m sure climbing the bale elevator would have been fun had I been older and a little less clumsy, my sister made it up and back safely….but no, I break my leg while at the bottom. The hand sanding(as we like to call it) was nothing more than me helping Dad out, and since I’m a people pleaser I help when someone needs it! For the record, it only bled for a little while and he laughed.. The live wire and pliers incident I have a harder time explaining, I guess I just wasn’t thinking. A note to anyone who does want to try it, don’t wear a fuzzy sweater when you do, it gets scorch marks down the front! 😀 These are just a few anecdotes that stand out it my thoughts right now, I’m sure everyone has moments like these….. at least I hope so.

The Epiphany opened yesterday, it only comes around four times a year, so it’s always exciting when the doors finally open. I was up bright and early this morning and managed to gain access to it, much to my surprise. There’s all kinds of goodies to play for this round and there’s also some gifts in celebration of The Epiphany’s birthday. Veechi is at this round and has an incredible gacha set of goodies! The ‘Desert Sun ‘ catwa make up gacha is a collection of vibrant desert colours with shadow and lip tint among the commons and one of the RARE items being lashes! I’m so excited to be able to wear all these goodies since my acquisition of the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa. I’m wearing one of the two options from the Lush Lashes, RARE prize and one of the three options from the Victoria Shadow, naturals set. In all, there’s ten commons and 2 RARE to play for. The Epiphany runs until August 15.

In the world of Group Gifts, !NFINITY has the Emme Summer Top out free for group members and it’s perfect for these hot summer days. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, Tonic, and TMP mesh bodies, and also comes in standard sizes plus, it’s HUD driven including eight colours. The group has a 50L$ one time fee to join, but with regular gifts and reduced pricing on new releases, it’s well worth it!!

There’s still a few days left in the current round of Shiny Shabby and LEGAL INSANITY has the Ella Denim Shorts exclusive to the event. They fit like a glove and look incredible with a slimming leg and a nice round butt. 😀 They’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and they come in four denim tones, sold separately or as a fatpack. Shiny Shabby runs until July 20.

The July round of The Chapter Four is still going strong with lots of time left for you to get your shopping done! {MYNX} has the ‘Beach Beads’ gacha set there for your playing enjoyment. These bangles just scream fun and summery and with ten commons and two RARES to play for, you’ll have as much fun as a beer commercial. 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Beach Beads-Starfish, RARE which is colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the cord.

This is how I look before every blog post I write, if you want to know the truth, although I’m not usually smiling. 😀 RC Cluster has the ‘Really Neat Notepad and thinking pencils’ gacha set at The Epiphany and I got the ‘Great Ideas’ version to help stimulate my brain! You get the notepad and the ‘thinking pencil’ in each prize with arm poses included. Just add the two things to yourself after you’re in the pose you want and your arms will do do their thing!

You might want to zoom in a bit in flickr to catch a good look at the pretty manicure I have on. This is from the ‘Grapefruit Mimosa’ applier set from Hello Dave. It’s compatible with SLink, Omega and Maitreya nails. This is one of five colours in the mini set.

I love the ‘Satomi’ hair from [monso]. The hair is shaped into cute little kitty ears and tied loosely at the back. It’s at the Hair Fair 2017 today, but with this being the last day it should move to the [monso] main store shortly.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo is a group gift from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I like it’s simple message that isn’t thought of enough. There’s five other group gifts available for group members at this time.

I’m using the animations HUD for the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa here to make this look that kind of looks like I’m happily thinking good things. I will admit that this isn’t the picture I wanted for this post, but after crashing a whole bunch of times while trying to take a different shot, I finally gave up and settled on this one. I just didn’t have the energy to log back in and do it all over again, I’m sure there’s a fellow blogger or two that might feel my pain. 😀 So, to make the Lilo head look fab I’m using the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. I just love this look and find it hard to try others, so Luna it is! And as always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

As for the nice decor around me at home, the Visual Bench 1, RARE is from the ‘Visual’ gacha set from Concept. The ‘Beach’ sign is from the Coastal Cabin gacha set from Bee Designs. The Birdacge Decor and the Ladders & Bird Houses are from the ‘Courtil’ gacha set from Myrinne.

I’m on the deck of the Boat Shack from REDGRAVE Homes and Interiors.

As you can probably see, I’m up kneeling on a pool table here, and I’m sure the owner of this fine establishment isn’t impressed with me! But, when it comes to taking pictures sometimes you have to ruffle a few feathers! So up I crawled on the pool table for this shot! I’ve played pool a bit over the years, but it ‘s never been a big love of mine! I wasn’t very good, and when combining it with alcohol, I was even worse! I played quite a bit of it while I attended a short course at an agriculture college back in the day, and since every Tuesday and Thursday were 2 for 1 drink nights, we all had trouble keeping our balls on the table! 😀 But, we had lots of fun and it made for some great memories! And what about what I went there to learn? Oh I remember some of that, too!!

The Chapter Four began it’s June round a couple days ago and Slipper Originals is in the 2 for 1 section! I’m showing you part of this new release, it’s the Starfish Set, which includes necklace and bracelet. The other part of the 2 for 1 is the Shell Espadrilles! The shoes and jewelry are a fantastic start to a great look for summer! I urge you to zoom in close to have a look at the detail of the set. They’re both colour change on touch with fifteen colours for the beads and five metals. This is white beads with copper metal. It can also be resized via drop down menu!

I love the ‘Maya Tank’ from !APHORISM!. I have come to the conclusion that this is the ‘summer of the tank’ for me! I seem to want to wear shorts and a tank every day! This is one of my favourites and I’m glad I got the fatpack! There are matching panties sold separately and they both come in ten colours with 3 options each! They’re fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

I have always loved the unisex hair from Dura Hair, so I had to grab the Boys & Girls 78 hair at the newest round of TMD. This is from the Darks pack.

The High Waisted Shorts are one of my favourites, and they’re from Maitreya!

As usual I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I’ve added a light lipstick from the ‘Fresh Lip Tint’ pack for the Logo mesh head from Pink Fuel. The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

I’ve been on a bit of a pose shopping spree lately and I was looking for sitting poses specifically! I found this one in the ‘Sit Fatpack’ set of poses from M I L A Poses!

I found this place at The Empire! I’ll be going back for some more exploring, there’s all kinds of great areas if you like dark and foreboding types of places! Which, of course, I do!

Blowin’ in the Wind……More Relevant Now Than Ever Before!

Blowin’ in the Wind……More Relevant Now Than Ever Before!

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man ?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned ?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see ?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Blowin’ in the Wind by Bob Dylan

I’ve loved Bob Dylan music from back in the early 80’s and I’m constantly struck by just how timeless his songs are! His protest songs of the 60’s are just as meaningful today as they were then…..times are a’changing…….but is it for the better?

While we’re on the topic of wind, here’s one of the poses from the Windblown A & B sets of poses from Le Poppycock! The months go by so fast, so it’s hard to believe another round of The Chapter Four is on….but it is! I think you all know my thoughts on poses from Le Poppycock….I think words like perfection, unique, and natural have all been said before….but really, it’s all true! There’s two packs to the set and both have the usual high quality poses that I’ve come to expect, and that keep us bloggers looking our best! There’s also a new and very cute couples pose available for all the happy couples out there!

I’ve got a simple outfit today! It’s simple….but oh so pretty! I’ve donned a couple of items that are exclusive to the November round of Designer Showcase and I think they go together perfectly!

Firstly, is the Yanikka Gown from KiB Designs. The dress is fitted for the Maitreya, eBody, and SLink mesh bodies, plus comes in two fitmesh sizes! There’s three colours per HUD and six designs to choose from, so there’s something for everyone. This dress is a showstopper that will make anyone feel like a million bucks! 🙂

Also at Designer Showcase is the Moksha complete texture change set from CHOP ZUEY COUTURE JEWELLERY. The pearls are piled up high on the complete set that includes the necklace, left and right bracelets, and two sizes of earrings. They’re HUD driven from one HUD with six colours to choose from.

The Grace hair is from Mina Hair and from the light browns pack.

I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Irina skin from itGirls, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant1 and flat feet from Slink.

I’m out on the edge of my dock at the gorgeous Winters Wind sim! The Summers Wind and Winters Wind sims are so pretty, and perfect for photography!

Orange Makes Me Happy!

Orange Makes Me Happy!

There’s a colour for every mood, and for me orange is happy! I don’t care what tone it is, light, dark, or otherwise, I just love orange! Needless to say, I love all of autumn’s colours! The rich greens, golds, and browns comfort me! Only Mother Nature can decorate the world and not have any colours clash! At this time of year, as the leaves fall and the grass dies, the prairie’s colour palette is rich in all tones of brown, yellow, and red! Everything is still hanging on, ever so slightly, to summer’s growth! A month from now and everything will have faded to all the shades of grey, which makes the short days of winter all the more somber! But, I enjoy fall for as long as it lasts, even though today all the wonderful colours are buried under a foot of snow! Fall will return in a couple days……I hope!

I love wearing orange, but when I saw the HUD for the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE], I had a hard time choosing! The skirt comes in either the black fades or light fades and they’re on sale for the month of October for Buy Now! Buy Now is a sale event solely on Market Place, so there’s no lag to bog you down! These skirts come in five sizes and fitted for the Maitreya, Lara and SLink, Hourglass and Physique mesh bodies. You can drop in at the [QE] main store and check out some new releases too!!

The 4th of October has brought a new round of The Chapter Four! I’m always eager to see what purely perfect poses Le Poppycock has come up with! There are two packs of the Cherry Wine pose sets and also two couples poses! The Love Connection couples poses are absolutely adorable, and it’s times like these I need a man……to help me show them off!

It’s fairly early in the October round of Designer Showcase, but there’s no time like the present to do some retail therapy! DaneMarkZ has the Fashionably Dead nail applier, exclusive to Designer Showcase! The nail applier is Omega and Maitreya compatible and has a dozen colours to choose from….orange included as you can see!

I love this tattoo! It’s the In The Shadows Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t, and like all the rest from PMS, it’s super detailed, original, and has just a bit of attitude! The tattoo is classic avatar and Omega and TMP mesh body compatible and comes in three ink tones! I’m always a medium tone kind of girl!!

I’m wearing the Jackson Wedge/Tiptoe Sneakers again, and this time around there’s a close up so you can see the great details! They’re from Mesh Agency, on Market Place, and are HUD driven with lots of colours to choose from! They’re compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, TMP, and Eve mesh feet and also classic avatars!

The Staley Top is from Vinyl.

I love the hair and cap combination from BesomxFlite! This is from the blacks pack.

As always, I am the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I’m in a sketchy part of town at After The Fall for these pictures!
