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.

It’s All About Perspective!

It's All About Perspective!

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see!”

~Henry David Thoreau~

It’s not about the glass being half empty or half full…..it’s about not getting caught up in seeing it either way! Just enjoy what you have……embrace what once was…..and look ahead to making it better!

I’m getting a new perspective with the Fish Bowl, a really great pose prop from IMMERSIV! It has five static poses installed for perfect picture taking for you and/or your friends! You too can swim with the fishies!!

I’m wearing the Surya Swimsuit, Stars, Common from RealEvil Industries, which is available at the current round of The Epiphany!

The ever popular wet hair look is HIKARI in chocolate from Argrace!

The basics of my beauty are the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Maitreya Lara mesh body and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I’ve taken this picture in the Down on the Ranch Barn by Jian! With a fish bowl this big, it needs to go in the barn!!

My Best Asset!!

My Best Asset!!

Yea, it’s a Saturday evening, with nothing going on………and I wouldn’t have it any other way!!

If you’ve look at the picture I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m not wearing much! This is the best way to spend an evening at home alone, wearing nothing but a comfy Tee and panties!! And speaking of the panties!! They’re from {MYNX} and they come in packs of four pairs with fitted versions for all the major mesh bodies! I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and they fit perfectly! There’s five packs to choose from, all with really great prints and they’re available at the current round of Kinky Monthly, which runs until August 20. I’m feeling pretty darn sexy in them!! 😉

To make my evening all about comfort I threw on the Classic Green Baseball Tee(sans brassiere) from Stories&Co. by Flowey! I used to wear these all the time in RL, back in the day…my all time favourite tees!

It’s a little dark inside, but I do want to mention that I’m in front of the fireplace in the Guild Hall building from Anachron! It’s a gorgeous and roomy building with lots of rustic details! It has two levels and is spacious enough for a large gathering! It’s available at the Medieval Fantasy Fair 6 until July 31, but will be at the main store after that!!

The Stella hair from the Dark Brown pack is from +elua+ and available at The Epiphany!

Pose from -slouch- poses, but no longer available!

I Remember When…..

I Remember When.......

…….my stereo speakers filled up the back seat of my car!

…….the epitome of cool was wide leg pants that covered your shoes, no matter how big your feet were!

…….I had to go to the bank to get cash so I could make a purchase!

…….once a person left home they couldn’t be contacted…and really, why did anyone need to be available 24/7!

…….no one said 24/7!

…….people seemed more in touch with their surroundings and actually wanted to be!

Times have changed and the young people of yesterday are now the old people of tomorrow! The world will continue to change, but I refuse to forget the way things were!

The Spring Rope Swing from Bokeh is at a bargain price of 1L$ for the duration of the Bring On Summer hunt by The Cookie Jar! It comes with four female and four male animations plus two couples animations! The hint is, “The pearl is the oyster’s autobiography” and you’re looking for a little blue bird! The hunt runs until May 22 and it’s theme is furnishing your home and garden for summer! You can find out all the details here!

The Urban Fallout bikini by Foxes is part of the Urban Fallout gacha available at The Epiphany! It’s exclusive to the Maitreya Lara mesh body, so remember that when you hit the ‘buy’ button!

I’ve attempted to get a little more comfortable with the Emily mesh head from Genesis Lab! I’m wearing it in Cream tone! Emily is from a gacha and I lucked out getting the RARE with eight emotions!

The Olivia hair is from +elua+.

You’re getting the tiniest glimpse of the Flower Breast tattoo from FLIPPANT! I’ll get you a close look of it real soon, but you can head to the main store and grab it, as it’s the May group gift!

Also, a tiny glimpse of the Tea Time nails from Veechi, which I’ll also be showing you a closer look in the next post of two! They’re really worth a look!

You Learn

You Learn

You live you learn
You love you learn
You cry you learn
You lose you learn
You bleed you learn
You scream you learn

You grieve you learn
You choke you learn
You laugh you learn
You choose you learn
You pray you learn
You ask you learn
You live you learn

‘You Learn’ sung by Alanis Morrissette

How true is that? No matter what happens in your life, it’s all about learning! I’ll be learning things right up until I draw my last breath! I’ll learn about myself, new skills, what not to do, and how to do things better! I’ve already had a ton of opportunities to learn so much! But, there’s so much still to learn! Everyday I ‘m given the opportunity to learn something and I strive to always be in a position to accept what I need to learn! Meaning that when I screw up, I swear, that will never happen again!!

The Ami Crop top and the Myra Skirt are new releases from Stories&Co. by Flowey and they’re available at the current round of N21!  The Kitten Crop Top is exclusive to the event and won’t be available after it’s over, so grab it while you can.  Both the top and skirt come in four sizes plus fitted versions for Maitreya and both SLink mesh bodies!

The PEONY Heels from GLAMISTRY are new and I just adore booties!  These have a super thin heel and would make any leg just a little bit more sexy!  They’re compatible with SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya and come in a whole bunch of colours, but the fatpack is always hard to resist!

The current round of Cosmopolitan is in full swing and -{ZOZ}- has the Dusky Lined Polish there in all it’s glory!  The HUD is available for SLink,  Maitreya, Omega, and ZOZ mesh nails, either separately or in a fatpack!  The HUD has nine shiny colours to choose from!

Another visit to The Epiphany has brought me the Harley hair from the Balayage pack!  The simple ponytails from little bones are perfect for adding a little bit of sass to an outfit!

The Esther skin in European tone is from DeeTaleZ.

The poses are from pose pack .049-.056 from [atooly]!

I had a look around Furillen and came across all these chairs on the dock…or is it a wharf?  Maybe a pier? I’ve never known the difference of these are!
